I want to hear people’s thoughts about their walk.
How often do people try to force you to walk their way?

Liked the ways you two explained the challenge of looking beyond the obvious parts of a person, while keeping the attention on the Nobility that exists within that person. This is a belief that keeps us united.
Knowing your nobility creates a vigilant attitude of walking with the “positive Power”. So when I encounter irrational behavior I know this person, situation, or place is crying out. Not for me to correct, but to envision the beauty imprisoned behind the smoke and mirrors. To embrace, rather than to reject. There’s a suffering alongside humanity, but a heart when illumined that comforts us, a vision that constantly inspires.
Walking in the spirit of nobility, while the mind remains humble. Humble because we know we’ve been somewhere dark in our lives, and that we are still cleaning. When I am noble in my thoughts, then words and actions reflect this.
I will ignore a person’s ignorance, remain in a prayerful attitude, remain joyful, focus on them as a soul and watch their behavior change. Sometimes this doesn’t work. But, if I am going to accept this person no matter what I have to be able to Not put my attention on those things which most of us hide behind. Our personalities, or habitual actions-that is a husk of who we don’t know ourselves to be. Trying to keep it interesting, because your up against the glamours of the world. To BE a creative presence.
Its an art, its being receptive to a Spirit that is behind these acts of love, its saying what is from your heart, its not being serious, but taking it serious, its acting in your highest nature, its today, right now. Remembrance, gratefulness, calm, beauty, happiness, present, vigilant, receptive, attentive, reflective, soulful, creative and active.
Writing all this as a reminder to myself, and from the inspiration of your video.
