Many people react strongly to particular ideas, words, groups etc.
Anything we are reacting to is telling us that we need to look within, at our thoughts, beliefs, attitudes, interpretations to discover what’s causing it so we can clear it and not be controlled by it.
Our reactions are usually quite unconscious and there is an unquestioned sense that we are fixed and right in them. They are different to that inner knowing of truth.
It is worth looking at, and thinking about, our reactions like these and to examine any prejudices or blind spots we have because they control us and close our minds.
Reactions come from threat and fear. When we open our minds and develop discernment, we stop cutting ourselves off and, instead, develop our inner sense of knowing and truth.
