Stuck In a Party Full Of Strangers? Look For The Guy In The 80’s Jacket.
Listen to this post
How did you feel the last time you walked into a party populated with strangers?
A little bit of social anxiety? Vulnerability? Outright terror?Did you walk in and awkwardly get yourself the fastest-working alcohol available?Been there.
Then, I bet, you started to look for someone you know in the crowd. It’s navigation time, so off you go, drink in hand, in search for someone that brings you comfort in a sea of scary strangers.
Oh no! You’ve searched the entire crowd, and your friends are not here yet.Fiddling with your phone and checking for texts would certainly come next.Plus, it makes you look busy.
But that only lasts for so long.You realize that you are going to have to interact with someone, eventually.
“Oh, I don’t want to talk to him, he looks clingy.”
“OMG, what is up with her hair?”
“I’m not sitting next to that guy, hell no. Has he been wearing that jacket since the 80’s?”
For most of us, it’s automatic to search out the threats in a crowd, and to do our best to avoid them.And yes, even an outdated jacket can be considered a threat.I mean, what would you talk about?
“Obviously he and I have nothing in common.”
Are you sure?
I will bet that your initial judgment about him is largely based on historical programming; judgments made by beliefs planted in you by television, movies or well-meaning parents, rather than from previous direct experience.
Here is the truth:
You are divine.All others are divine.
Is that concept a big jump for you?And what does divine really mean?
You are a drop from a giant creative, omnipotent Lake—and you have all of the powers of that Lake, with NO limitations.
You have incarnated here to experience physicality, to grow, and to remember this truth.
Those fellow partygoers are also drops from this Lake, having a human experience, just as you are.You are all equal drops, and you all have the same goal here. Even the guy in the Members Only jacket with ten buckles.
Why not see others as friends?
If they are sharing your party, then they have chosen to be there on not only the physical level, but on higher levels as well.You are there to serve each other, through your mutual interactions.Remember, you get back what you send out.
So the next time you go to a party, remind yourself of your common goals before you enter the room.Don’t expect that everyone remembers these goals just yet, just as you forget from time to time.It needn’t stop you from treating them as if they do remember.
This is how you recognize the divinity in another, and this is how you create that ideal life you’ve been dreaming of. You’ll be creating from a higher level, one that is not hindered by judgments and false beliefs about reality.
