Recently I posted a reason why we should evolve faster in order not to destroy our own environment, and one for how important spiritual preparation is in times of crisis, such as the one of the coronavirus Covid-19, but there is also a more abstract one:
The massive amounts of emotional damage done out of ignorance.
This doesn’t only happen due to malevolence, such as purposely physically harming bullying or trolling others, but it also can happen in forms of sneaky passive-agression or even ignorant phrases one dished out without having been aware of its consequences.
Remember how your parents did tell you something which made you feel bad for decades for half of your life and remember all those years or decades you were hurt by people who cheated or mistreated you.
Often people don’t even mean harm but simply are not aware of what they were dishing out mindlessly “for they do not know what they are doing.“
Unfortunately I have to tell you: It is highly likely that you yourself did the same to others
and on top of it will dismiss their pain simply because you can not relate to it.
Not only that, but mere energetic imbalances can hurt others or yourself by simply happening (like you making mistakes or having unnecessary accidents due to an inherited roughness, lack of awareness, being emotionally preoccupied or even more abstract reasons.)
The root of this catch-22-situation is the ignorance of each of us combined with our raw deflective energy which makes us (re)act compulsively.
And the dilemma is that even the hurt ones can develop a victim-consciousness which at one point can turn into a burden for others.
The boomerang is that at a higher stage of development really old stuff which still lingers as memories in your cells can release themselves into your consciousness (just think back a few decades and you will find mistakes your ego was not willing to admit back then but which you now are willing to admit).
On a side-note:
Whilst this is a sword of damocles for you, to remember this can also give you great comfort in knowing that everyone at one point will have to face their past karma, which is probably what religious analogies of being judged after life are all about.
The more self-reflected you are, the more aware you are what kind of emotional avalanches you could trigger with an unlucky chosen statement or negative affirmation.
So if you do believe in Karma which does accumulate over lifetimes I seriously recommend to you to start to implement some kind of spiritual practice in your life without postponing it.
Just treat your soul as any part of your body which you have to take care about, like brushing your teeth daily .
