The more you polish, the more you shine

In my daily life, I always communicate with people with the awareness that they all have their innate god and that they all have parents who gave life to them. When I acknowledge these things, no matter how the person is bringing an irrational outrage on me, I could still deal with him in a calmly manner. Raising an infant to an adult is a long and hard work. Therefore, not to judge that one person alone but by thinking of his parents who gave so much effort to raise the child would bring a different dynamics to the picture.

Living in a society, frictions between people are unavoidable. One of the lessons we need to learn is how to polish ourselves through these circumstances. The person you have to deal with is like a mirror, a chance to look at your soul. Unfortunately, this world is made to work in this way. You cannot polish yourself without others involved. You always need others to create a friction. So you have a chance to look inside the mirror and polish yourself. The others could be your partner in life, your parent, child, schoolmate, or a colleague. When you are having problems with someone, it simply means you are work in progress.  You are simply in the process of polishing yourself.

The awareness of polishing your own mirror is very important in this dimension. If you are unaware of this idea, you will waste a lot of time under living in force of habits and suffering. Once your mirror starts to shine, you will start to feel sympathy to everyone around you. We should not forget that we all have our own innate god within. We are all connected to the root source of Kami.

When you want to convince the opponent, try to reach his soul, his innate god. Even he doesnt respond at that time, he will think about it later. The content of the discussion has to come for your sincere intention in order to reach the innate god of your opponent.

Let us work on polishing our mirror through the frictions between others to shine our light.
