The Collective Strength of Human Diversity

In life we have to work with the diversity of those surround us – and also their different approaches , mindset , behaviors and ways of being. It is each and everyones human right ( as long there is no harm done) to be the best YOU that you can be. However this diversity can lead to those testing your tolerance. The intent for these cards is how we achieve tolerance for things in that occur in our current lives… hehe very interesting card spread to be honest – and something to be mindful of the week ahead when we do come into contact with those that are either

  1. approach things at a different rate

  2. think differently to you

  3. have aspects that may feel a little discordant to you for whatever reason

They way to tolerate is to accept the differences within  YOU. Think about it, if you are feeling as though another is vastly different to you, then of course they may feel the same way about you. You choose what battles you will face head-on – and when you choose to stand down- with it comes sacrifice because although your human self wants to respond fiercely, however the Soul spark that lies within you knows you will be happier – for some situations – if you just release and not buy into the difference.

Other reasons why people strike cords that are not necessarily pleasant is because we are being reminded of aspects of Self that we would rather not face – so take time to ask yourself ‘ why am I feeling this way? Is it out of character? Is there are characteristic of the person or situation that reminds you of your own faults. No one is perfect which we understand, but not often do we want to be reminded of it!  It is like many of us are not that keen at looking into a mirror! Well we do it EVERY day with every perceived aspect of our life visuals and actions.

Sometimes we get shown what it is that we need to make peace with – that people are the way they are – and sometimes it is secondary to WHO they are – rather than – ‘why’ they are. There is an important difference. We can love them but not their behaviors.

Tolerance stems from accepting all facets of Self and agreeing that facets of others is them honoring their way without thought of you. This is not Selfish for most people, it is Self honoring – and if their behavior encroaches on your freedom of choice – then step back and away from the behavior until it matches your chosen preference. Breathe deeply when diversity leads to conflict – needing tolerance to allow and release that which does not resonate.

Remember that diversity is needed for Humanities survival. How boring would the world be if we were all the same!
