“I’m rubber, you’re glue! Everything you say bounces off of me and comes right back to you!”
This is something that my sister and I constantly recited back to each other when we were kids. This line alone was what saved us from even the cleverest rebuttal. All responses were no match for this one-liner! Aside from being a great way to have the last word, this line itself carries some major truth.
“Like what? That you’re made of rubber?”
NO! This line carries wisdom in it’s words because everything we project outwardly is based on what we see or feel inwardly of our own selves. So many of us are very quick on the draw when it comes to giving our opinions of others. Whenever we feel hurt, threatened, or jealous of others, we tend to fire out some highly opinionated words directed at specific individuals. These words are an ill attempt at trying to salvage some sort of dignity within ourselves. As childish as this seems, this is something that happens throughout all ages.
“No one has ever made himself great by showing how small someone else is.” – Irvin Himmsel
When the heart aches, the ego screams. Our egos won’t allow us to go down without a fight. Saying hurtful things is a weak individual’s imitation of strength. They seek strength by trying to find people to side with them. This is for 2 reasons. The first is because the individual no longer has the strength to operate alone. And secondly because misery loves company.
“I know you are but what am I?”
All our relationships are a reflection of who we are; they mirror us. Your mind also reflects; it reflects its experiences when it speaks. Everything that you have ever encountered in your life will be projected outwardly. The entire world sits within your own mind. Everything we see and perceive of our surroundings is based on the inner dialogue. We see only what we want to see.
“There’s an optical illusion about every person we meet.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
When we are vibrating at a low frequency and become emotional, the things we say reflect our own selves. The blessing of being in a relationship or having been in one, is that they are meant to bring attention to things we need to work on within our own selves. It’s like the ink blots that psychologists use for patients. The patient will see whatever that plagues them within. So as much as we love to hate our enemies, they provide us great gifts to a higher awakening. The problem is that most often our egos blind us and make us miss out on the lesson.
Be sure to taste your words before you spit them out.
On the flipside, when we say things endearingly toward others, it may also reflect something that we seek for ourselves. So often we tend to follow those we are inspired by. These people fill a void we have within.
As much as you like to resist, but it’s true that opposites attract. Opposites are mysteries we seek to discover. When we are missing something, we seek to be around someone who has what we want. If we find ourselves in the presence of someone who we perceive to be very compassionate, it may show that we feel a lack of compassion within our own selves. Whatever we seek within, we will seek it externally.
“Whenever you point your finger at someone, there are 3 more fingers pointing back at you.”
Our entire perception of reality of our surroundings and the people within it, is based on something we either are meant to learn of ourselves, or something that we seek of ourselves. Every person serves a purpose. Don’t miss the lesson by allowing your verbal diarrhea run wild because you may be speaking more of your self than others.
