‘Issues people’ trigger one another with unresolved issues, and we suddenly have a dance where one is listening to country music and the other to ‘rap’. In other words, we get conflict if they are in the same room trying to play their favorite tunes. Then the engagement of words starts about each others perceptions fueled by unresolved hidden issues. There is a phrase that states that the person you are talking to is calling you something that they themselves are (and generally in abundance). 

This comes from old times when pots and pans were generally black and kettles were generally metallic and reflective. Therefore the pot sees its black reflection in the kettle and thinks that the kettle is black. In the Matthew 7:3-5, Jesus is quoted as asking, during the discourse on judgmentalism in the Sermon on the Mount, “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?” IQ’s begin to look about room temperature!

Today, many want to forego the inner development and live like a millionaire, applying for as many credit cards as possible and then begin running up credit card balances like there is no tomorrow. However, ‘karma’ has a way of rectifying or enhancing what one does and lives as. Conflict is rarely not ‘two ways’, but sometimes those with issues look for it unconsciously from everywhere even where it is only them. 

Straightening out a tree that is growing crooked, is a slow process as it is with one who grows up with unresolved issues that have accumulated ongoing more and more issues with those issues. The beat goes on, unless you make the intent to do what is necessary and available to upright and disconnect with those things that make you less than a person filled with love and compassion. Paradise is your centering when you become free of liabilities that create the ‘entanglements’. Own who you are at the moment, take responsibility for who you present yourself as. Meditation and awareness with discernment is to climb the mountain where the air of love is rarefied, and is
