You Are probably Doing Your Best

It’s not always things comes out the way we would like. We maybe have good intentions behind our actions and our behaviour but even then things might surprise us in a negative way. From our part we see only that we did the best thing we could do. Most of the times this is the case, assuming our intentions behind our behaviour were to do good. Even though this is so people around us might not agree. At the time, in our state of consciousness what we were doing was the best thing we saw we could do. So don’t feel bad if this happens to you, you were to your ability probably doing the best you could do. The great spiritual master Jesus understood this when he said:

“Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” (Luke 23:34)

He could see, that they couldn’t do better because of their lower state of consciousness. They believed that they were doing the best thing they could do. Even if what they were doing was wrong Jesus out of love forgave and told us to do the same.

  1. So what is right and what is wrong? Claiming someone has a lower state of consciousness is a pretty intense thing to say. However certain one feels about a belief it’s best not to point out that someone is less insightful. You think you know who you are, but you have no idea. Not really. In my opinion you have to keep an open mind, however certain you are.

  2. What’s right is to forgive. That is to see the goodness in others. To understand that from another one’s perspective, what they did was what they believed to be the best. They might be wrong seen from another perspective which they themselves can’t see and that is why we forgive.

    We can’t know what’s right except what we see to be right from our perspective, from our point of view.

    Forgiveness brings acceptance to what is. It is leaving the past behind and it is aligning us with the present moment.

    If the philosophies, thoughts and ideas presented here don’t serve you then by all means neglect them. You will find what you are looking for somewhere else.

  3. I agree with you on almost everything you say, pointing at the fact that everyone have their own beliefs of what’s best – or right for that matter. What I wanted to point out is that I think you get further with an attitude where you accept other peoples beliefs without raising your own belief to the sky and thereby claiming to have a higher status. This is not an accusation of any kind, this is just me trying to have a constructive discussion. Though judging by the defensive stand you took when answering my comment, I realize that the content of this blog isn’t up for discussion. You want to preach, so go ahead. I’m outta here.

    • It’s not about claiming ourselves to have a higher status. It’s neither about accepting others’ beliefs or raising our own to the skies. It’s about our ability to forgive. If we forgive with the intention to raise our sense of self then it’s not true forgiveness. If we have that in mind then it’s only a game played by our ego, our mind-made sense of self. True forgiveness is to allow what is to be, to allow the present moment to be as it is. Here is where the transformation happens. Forgiveness takes the ego out of the picture and brings awareness in. This transmutes what seemed to be evil, redeems it and inner peace is achieved.

  4. Thank you Mathias for this consciousness endowment. It give me the urge to take a higher responsibility in my life. It also give me a slant of the importance of stillness and meditation to clean my own energies.
