CAREFUL!!...about that 'weak spot'


I recently cut my finger very badly on a glass.... following which I would hit my finger again and again at the same spot. I am sure u have noticed this in your life too….The weak spot is under attack. I became very alert, I thought I was just getting more aware when I might be hitting that spot in my finger often otherwise as well. But I noticed it would get hit in very unpredictable and out of the ordinary ways
Why does that happen? The weak spot has to be protected with extra care, as there do seem to be some powers that seek for it.

'Elimination  of the weak or the unfit' theory?  There does seem to be some energies that work on eliminating the unfit.  The weak deer of the pack is left behind and is caught. The shark is said to be able to smell even a drop of blood in the ocean and come for it. Some how the weak spot does seem to have a vibe that brings to it the powers that attack on it and eliminate it. It is a blind power. But it can be surmounted. When the inner strength rises to the challenge, it can indeed subdue these forces.

Nobody can ride your back unless it is bent. You might say you weren’t weak and yet you were dominated upon. Think carefully, you might not have noticed that weakness. Sometimes one's goodness can become a weakness…rather one's  naiveness.  Have u noticed how the manipulative  people don’t even trust the cleanest of person and how the good man trusts even the wilest one? It is trust that can be cheated not the mistrust.  This can be said of an individual, it can be said about a nation.  India as a country is weak because of its tolerance and easy going attitude towards many things and it gets hit again and again by terror forces.

One has to learn to see objectively and not see others as we see ourselves.  Innocence and naiveness is not always a virtue, one has to learn to be wise as a serpent even when innocent as a dove. One needs to learn toughness, hardness and decisiveness. When the eliminating energies begin to revolve around you, use it to bring out the insurmountable power within you that is above all powers. Become more, and rise above your weakness. Then you would be fit enough to survive.

It is said that one's past life sins are responsible for the tragedies of the current life. I don’t believe that because Abel was the son of the first man Adam and he was murdered by his brother Cain out of jealousy. His was obviously a first birth and his past life sins can definitely not be responsible! I had been looking up the regression session readings of some people. A farmer’s earlier birth had been of a chemistry professor. A poor girl's earlier birth had been of a preacher in church…It is not always a progression to a better birth!!?? A sage in one mythological story was born in the next birth as a deer because he had got attached to a deer during his final years in the forest!!

It may not be just about desire and attachment though. Maybe the life of a chemistry teacher failed to teach somethings that the life of a farmer could? To get a clear idea of anything we need to see life from different perspectives we need to see life through different kinds of eyes. Death can only kill the body . Just as in a play there is no real loss but lessons gained are there buried in the spirit that needs to be tapped into and opened to reach our own fullness gained from a complete view. Each life may show us a different aspect of a bigger truth; 'a different part of the elephant' but if we stay blind we will not see the tail to be a part of something bigger.

With each episode in life we are meant to open our eyes..wider.... and connect the links to get the whole picture. With each attack on us we are meant to recognise our weak spot and are supposed to eliminate it one by one till we are the unsumountable

No one can ride on your back unless its bent.
This line just made me realize where I went wrong!

Jerly said...

I am so glad it was useful!

its great thinking,but sometimes our love,care for our loved ones become our weakness,its those moments we cant come over our weakness..

Jerly said...

thank u jovy nd Asteria

Welcome to my blog Asteria. Your question is very valid and as I said about the wound that is a weak spot....it has to be protected with utmost care till it heals. Kids have to be sheltered under our wings, made strong through proper guidance till they are strong enough and then set them free to live the life of their own as we live our own :)...

icyHighs said...

The trouble is, I suppose, when you have several weak spots.

Jerly said...

Hmm...
work on them one at a time???

chips from a life said...

You are right, but there are so many situations, so many instances where rules, and ideologies do not work..but as we all know life goes on and so it does. I have read you previously as well, just that commented first time, and thanks for reading me as well.

Jerly said...

Hmm...I know; philosophy is just a balm that reduces the pain of a wound, but some wounds require a lot of balm and a number of years....to ache a little lesser


Love and hug

jan neel said...

Love this, thanks. I believe we are meant to open our hearts and minds as we learn and open our eyes as well.

Jerly said...

I was thinking about it! :)

Farfalla Dreams said...

WOW! SO TRUE!!!

Interesting about your finger, I hit and scraped my shin climbing over a metal gate, a 6 months back. It had a huge bump and scar for months, the bump wouldn't go away. It was so tender and sore, but it seemed like it kept getting hit. On chairs, my vacuum, tables, and even my dogs jumping on it. haha The bump finally went away, but I was left with a scar... and a reminder to NEVER climb over the metal gate again.

Yes, we need to learn from our mistakes, and from those situations or people, that we've allowed to take advantage of us.

Like you said, "one has to learn to be wise as a serpent even when innocent as a dove."

AMEN!

Jerly said...

VERY TRUE Farfalla to not repeat mistakes and keep away from those who take advantage of us. Hmmm. you made me think on that one
Thanks for sharing ur experience and thoughts!

JASMINA said...

Hi Jerly :o),

this post is an excellent reminder to be always on guard and to protect ourselves!
I completely get the story with your finger.It happened to me several times to get hit on a weak spot - in a physical and in a psychological sense.However,it was only after I got utterly pushed on the ground and humiliated that I said,enough is enough!Then I had a serius talk with myself and I took the ferm decision not to allow the world to hurt me so easily.Now things are going on much better and I have already had cases where I had to stand for what I believe in and for the person that I am and that I aim to become.It sure will not always be easy,but I am ready - wise like a serpent,innocent like a dove :)!

Many greetings and all good to you :)...

Rahul Bhatia said...

Jerly you are one of the few very wise ones who I have come across when it comes to absolutely objective thinking! Could not agree more with you!!

do you mean we slowly reach perfection as we keep erasing our weakspots over time...or life cycles

deeps said...

That’s the same tactic used in sports as well… cornerign the weakling in the opposition :P
Stopping by after a long while…
