Talk of love is mostly superficial when it’s just a use of words that sound good. All talk of tolerance is really buried in intolerance. The world has always been a ‘lights dimmed’ example of the opposite of ‘love your neighbor replaced with ‘tolerate your neighbor’ and put on a false happy face. Toleration is to put up with, overlook, swallow a reaction and any mirroring of a situation or and of another.
Toleration is a good quality to have in many areas of life except in a personal love because love shouldn’t require toleration if genuine, where communication flows freely within a loving dialog. However, much of life centers around what could be referred to as ‘customer service’ with the many services we encounter. The ‘toleration’ works both ways, but particularly needs to from those offering the service when dealing with the recipient especially an unhappy one who could be riding a fine line between tolerance and intolerance. Toleration requires the best use of common sense, empathy, even compassion for it may be unnecessary sometimes when you see the situation from 360º with clear intelligence.
People are intolerant of each other, inspite of feigning tolerance because they don’t go deep into their personal self love, staying instead complacent with unresolved issues of duality. Examples of duality are man vs woman; one religion vs another; good vs bad and so forth. Duality thinking creates prejudice’s that enter as factors.
Tolerance can become love? If you want to know the ‘truth’ you must go beyond all polarities or dualities. Be interested in ‘knowing’ and seeking the truth beyond all prejudices. Go beyond all conditionings to a higher truth and an attitude of higher intelligence from discernment will become an overwhelming habit beyond the state of not questioning with an open mind and heart.
Always seek ways to find harmony within, and anyone you’re close to, however there is no seeking if it’s already there within and within another. There is no toleration if you love yourself, and with someone else who also does. Deep love has already moved beyond the need to tolerate another in the same space.
In the outer world of interaction, have a sense of ‘detachment’. Detachment is not a state of not caring. It refers to seeing that no experience, thought, state, or other manifestation ultimately affects or changes your true nature as emptiness or formless awareness. Come into the moment, with an open heart. Just BE and see!
