Rainbow Human » Essence » 08 Supportive

I am valuable to others: I help improve the lives of others.
Rather than only considering our situation, we think about how to help others live better lives whenever we interact with them. We take a bigger perspective to increase our value and relevance with those we choose to stay in touch. Eventually, people see us as positive contributors to their lives and welcome our participation. They treat us with respect and help protect us from harm. They will help us when we need help.

 

#064 WE ARE PEACEMAKERS

Embrace every dilemma, mystery and experience.
Celebrate our connection with every person, place and thing.
Forgive every offense, fault and mistake from ourselves and others.
Honour every person’s dignity, truth and gifts.

We choose to bring peace to the world through the lives we touch.
We choose to promote everyone’s interest and needs.
We choose to demonstrate the greatest potential within us.
Because we are Small but Mighty!

 

#065 BREAKING THE FOURTH WALL

Whenever we believe that someone (X) has harmed us (Y).
Explore the possibility that X did the reverse of Y to us.
Explore the possibility that X did something other than Y to us.
Explore the possibility that we did Y to X.

Explore the possibility that we did Y to ourselves.
Explore the possibility that X did Y to X.
We actively question our beliefs and become aware of our drama.
Because we are Small but Mighty!

 

#066 EXPLORING RELATIONSHIPS

Choose something or someone that bothers you; let X represent it.
How does X dominate/control you?
How does X reject/hate you?
How does X threaten/harm you?

How does X avoid/leave you?
How does X ignore/refuse to acknowledge you?
Begin ending the drama by becoming aware of these.
Because we are Small but Mighty!

 

#067 THE 5 PERSONAS

Stonewallers seek to protect themselves from harm by staying silent and inactive.
Accusers seek to put the responsibility and blame on everyone else.
Appeasers try to please others by agreeing and apologising.
Distracters try to ignore the issue at hand by focusing on irrelevant topics.

Analysers attempt to cut off all their emotions and focus on only the facts.
None of these is real; they are only meant to hide our true selves from others.
Let us stop imagining what people mean for our true relationship to begin.
Because we are Small but Mighty!

 

#068 REALITY IS INCLUSIVE

The world is inclusive rather exclusive in nature; AND rather than OR.
There are multiple seemingly contradictory perspectives that are all valid.
It takes courage and wisdom to overthrow the idea that only one of them is right.
The jigsaw can never be completed if we throw away the pieces that we dislike.

The fools think of themselves as wise, the wise know themselves as fools.
The deluded think of themselves as sane, the sane know themselves to be deluded.
Rather than ideology, we focus on what works to create the results that we seek.
Because we are Small but Mighty!

 

#069 BE SKEPTICAL OF STORYTELLING

Our self-identities are stories that we have created for ourselves.
Other’s self-identities are stories that we have created for them.
No one does anything wrong according to their story about the world.
No one can understand anyone else; only their own stories about each other.

We often forget that we are just making things up as we go along.
It is up to us to uncover and understand the stories that others have created for themselves.
We choose to end our personal drama and wait patiently for others to end theirs too.
Because we are Small but Mighty!

 

#070 COMPLETING LIFE

What is our role and relationship to the situation?
What would a wise and mature version of ourselves do now?
How do we help everyone to grow together?
What would restore the flow of life now?

Acceptance is not about others, but our relationship with others.
Expectations impede understanding; insistence ruins relationships.
We choose to support and empower people at the level in which they are ready.
Because we are Small but Mighty!

 

#071 RETURNING TO OURSELVES

When we believe that others are responsible for our misery, we will always be a victim.
We do not have to like our life, but we can accept it to make things easier for ourselves.
Everything happens for us to choose, not endure.
We need nothing more to be happy.

We do not truly know what is best wish for us, for others or for the world.
We do not seek to change, convert, heal or improve people.
We simply support those who are ready to find their way back to themselves.
Because we are Small but Mighty!

 

#072 INCLUSIVE EQUALITY

No one owes anyone else a living; no one can be exempted from the rules of life.
The needs of all people, no matter majority or minority, are equally important.
Resentment arises when anyone’s needs are dismissed in favour of another.
Inequality breeds more inequality; resentment breeds more resentment.

Discrimination can be defeated with equality, mutual respect and serving others.
Not by competing on how loud we can shout, how vile we can insult.
We do unto others what we want others to do unto us.
Because we are Small but Mighty!

 

I give unconditionally when I find it worthy: I do not demand that others recognise and reward my efforts.
Most people will not appreciate us for trying to improve the world; they may even punish us. If we are not prepared to handle the illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered people accusing us of ulterior motives, then do not start on our work. If we are not ready for people to attack us for helping them, do not help. If we are not prepared to make false friends and true enemies, then do not try.
