I believe we are meant to collide with people. Some collisions last a moment, some turn into marriages. And through these collisions, we learn about ourselves, others, the world, our path. We change, grow, evolve. But only if we are open and allow them to change us instead of trying to control them. Think about the people appearing in your life. Think about the collisions you’ve already had. Think about how your relationships are changing and your response to that. What are you supposed to learn from your collisions? If the universe is trying to tell you something by the people presented on your path, what would the message(s) be? I believe the ones who give us the most resistance carry the most important lessons.

I believe this is a spiritual practice, to see people as teachers. To know that you are a catalyst. To not judge the person or experience. To not want but allow, the unfolding. To know that the collisions are the most powerful when we are the most authentic. To know that we’re not meant to do life alone.

I believe we have forgotten the value of the human exchange. Because we’re too busy wanting things from others instead of seeing them as unique experiences.

It’s something I’ve been trying to work on lately, trying to see people as experiences/ messages. Laid out in front of me and why. Teachers. I’ve learned that viewing people this way allows me to judge less and enjoy people more. To not control or define. To just be. It makes me believe. In us. As humans. And how we’re all connected. You should try it.
