Why do we have difficulty with the differences between people? A lot of it is from childhood. Some of it is a form of control; we have no control when people are different from us. We cannot control them (subconsciously that is) while they are different. I remember in the early days noticing that Alan liked cottage cheese – he ate a lot of it. Even though it turned my stomach, he liked it. I could not understand why he liked it. It is bland and tasteless as far as I am concerned, yet he would wolf it down as if it was the finest rib-eye steak! Yuk! was my reaction, yet now I can watch him eat it without any comment or emotion at all.
Even twins have their differences. We were meant to be different. Can you imagine if we all ate the same food in the same way? Our differences make us who we are. We are unique individuals, but for the majority of us (unless we can move beyond it), these differences can be a source of frustration that our partner, mother, friend etc., can be the way they are with their issues over things and foods.
Maitreya has said that, until we can accept the differences in each other, we can never have peace, and I have to be honest and state that I do wonder if we can ever do that. We are so diverse in our energies, so set in our ways sometimes. If one has raised one’s vibration/consciousness and is on the metaphysical path, it can be easier as we learn not to give energy to such trivial things. But what if one has not raised one’s vibration/consciousness? The Photon Energy is enabling many souls on the earth plane to do just that, and many are. But what about those who are entrenched in their religious faith and will not change? Maitreya has said that it will take time, but we are moving forward and are better than we were. There will be more and more souls on the earth plane who will change over the next few years, and he said that, eventually, we will become more tolerant of each other.
