Subjective Prejudice in Action
I wrote an article not long ago about the subjective prejudice consciously or unconsciously directed at people of African descent.
Do you want to see subjective prejudice, of the highest order, in action? You have to watch this video.
After watching the video, I only felt compassion for the woman, you know it takes “faith” to hold on to this type of “prejudice” in the mind! What a waste to misuse the most precious gift of life and get locked in this mindset of “superiority complex”. It must be quite frustrating to go about life in this “state” of mind.
I also have a choice to “respond” or “react” but I choose to “respond” and separate the “character” from the “being” playing this part I now behold. For the real “being” is “pure” so I choose to see this “character” in that light and feel the joy of seeing her connecting with the real “being” that is asleep and awakening to the fact that we are all “one” but have been programmed to “react” to life by the “subjective patterns” lodged within us -in our subconscious mind!
I believe this is what I and everyone are called to do, to lift the “other” up that per adventure the grace within him or her might be roused. If not then the “word” sent – good or bad – would return to us multiplied in ways we do not know.
A good reminder is this beautiful quote that goes thus:

What are you noticing?
We should all make it a daily practice to notice our thought pattern and pause to check if they are empowering or not especially towards others.
What are your thoughts about this type of behavior?
To your expanding awareness.
