Ignoring is the best policy

No sir, this is not a typo, it works when someone whose ways you do not appreciate comes near you. Such situations leaves us with little choices, and the most common response is frustration and expressing contempt or ridicule.

But the wise choose to ignore the presence of such an entity. And come to think about it, isn’t it enough that you chose to be unaffected by their arrival; might seem rude to some, but hey, if I was on the receiving end and I got to choose which one of your responses I’d prefer from these three (contempt, ridicule, ignoring), I would happily ask you to ignore my arrival than to impart any negative energy.

Plus, there is no point in finding fault in another. We ourselves have so much to improve on, and for all we know, the fault is our own that we don’t understand “them” in the correct light.

Let them follow their path, leave them alone.

Come to think about it, ignoring someone less appreciated requires alot of self-control, a quality worth developing and this could be our jolly good opportunity work on it. Talk about optimism, hehe..

It also requires a purity of mind.

And, it helps develop the attitude of unaffectedness.

Allow me to walk away…

Why is it easier to forgive a foe than those we love?
Wrong is easily forgiven, but forgetting contempt takes real strength?
But life cannot stop here, the only way forward is after I have forgiven
..and  forgotten.
I know I have forgiven, and in time,
I will forget too.
But, I don’t think we can be reunited…

Would YOU tell the invigilators?

…If you see someone copying during an examination, would you tell the invigilators?

Situations like such makes one question the difference between doing things right and doing the right thing? To make sure things are done right, you sure should should tell the invigilators. But doing the right thing is relative to the individual; what one might perceive as the right-thing-to-do might be perceived completely differently by another. In some situations, what one would do depends how much of a friend/foe the other is!

A simple thought occurred to me this morning; If you see things in a non-spiritual approach, and don’t see a purpose to existence, please read no further. ( Or do, and it might give you a chuckle 😉 )

If we all are here for our own purpose, we all are on our own journey, our own individual journey to be the best possible version of who you can be. Being a programmer, I tend to see programmers logic behind my thoughts. Hence, if the universe is a computer and individuals are individual programs; one program does interact with another, but to test the functionality, fix bugs, find updates is between the “programmer” and that program.

Not trying to justify another’s actions, not making sure another gets punished for their misdoing is like acknowledging that the “programmer” knows what is happening and maybe, what I see as a bug in another might be a feature I am yet to understand.

Plus, while working on the next upgrade, the “programmer” tends to run necessary “test” scripts which may cause temporary setbacks on programs.

Focusing on others’ flaws, is a flaw in itself.
