Whilst looking through a book, Esoteric Teachings & Revelations, by Serge Benhayon, I came across a quote that stopped me in my tracks,
“All your hurts is how you have been with others.”1
In actual fact I shut the book after that.
It was a huge ouch and wake up call for me, and a very humbling one in fact. I am a deeply sensitive person, as are we all, and I get hurt and saddened by what I see in life and how we treat one another. Sometimes because I have expectations of people and situations, that are not met, however if anyone was to say they do not get hurt and saddened by things in life and what they see, I would not believe that for a second. It hurts us when someone doesn’t truly meet us when speaking to us and let’s face it we all do that.
For there is a part of us that is human so therefor we do get hurt, we aren’t hurt, but we do feel it, and if we can look out at the world and not feel a sadness at the abuse, lovelessness, lack of care, lack of respect and decency we treat each other with, our friends, partners, family, work colleagues, people in the street, the car park, ourselves, and the mess we have created and live in then there is something seriously wrong.
But rather than hold onto these hurts, of ‘they did this to me, they did that’, what if we were to register them, acknowledge that we have been hurt, and maybe we need to express that to the person there and then, hey that hurt me, so it doesn’t build up in our body into a frustration then an outburst of anger, rage or aggression, then move on.
And, what if this quote is offering another level of healing to go to, yes move on from our hurts, don’t hold onto them, but see the truth of in fact everything that hurts us is us walking back through footsteps we have already created, that the hurst we feel is how we have been with others, to clear them, to re-imprint them with love.
What is every hurt was humbly seen in truth and in actual fact as an opportunity to heal, evolve and grow. We are feeling these hurts because we have hurt, and treated someone else in this way. We would then take things far less personally and be far more responsible.
Now that can be devastating to feel, that we have treated others in this way, but very much needed. So the lesson being offered is to experience what that hurt feels like in our body, so we do not make the same unloving choice or treat anyone in this way again.
This is a responsibility game changer in how we live.
