Day 188 - Reactions to stealing and law

I will be writing on the point of law abidance and my judgments towards people who do not abide the laws and/or who steal.

I forgive myself that I accepted and allowed myself to feel superior to others when I abide the law and they don't. When and as I see myself defining/perceiving myself as superior when I abide the law and others don't - I stop and breathe. I realize and understand that I have defined abiding the law as a good thing and so not abiding the law as something bad, shameful, unacceptable where I have in this made myself superior to others, but also would feel inferior if I would break the law. Thus I commit myself to make sure that I do not make myself feel superior/inferior, based on the idea of abiding the law or not.

I forgive myself that I accepted and allowed myself to react with fear, spitefulness and superiority towards the saleswoman when my partner told me that she deliberately charged her a product that she didn't buy in order to get more money.

I forgive myself that I accepted and allowed myself to judge people who steal, do not abide the law and/or are abusive and selfish, as inferior to me. When and as I see myself judging people who I see/perceive are stealing, not abiding the law and/or are abusive and selfish, as inferior to myself - I stop and breathe. I realize and understand that I am creating the separation of superiority/inferiority, where I am only considering my self-interest in wanting to feel superior, instead of taking into consideration all the factors and conditions that we all accepted and allowed within this world where stealing and breaking the law is sometimes actually necessary for people to even survive and where we are thought by example that only caring about self-interest is normal and a part of human "nature". Thus I commit myself to make sure that I do not judge as inferior those who steal, do not abide the law and/or are abusive and selfish, instead I make sure that I explore and understand the causes of why these things happen and the I look at what is the best solution and stand as an example where I support others, as I would like to be supported in their place, in showing the how we can/must take self-responsibility for changing ourselves and the world in a way where stealing and breaking the law will not be required in order to have a dignified life.

I forgive myself that I accepted and allowed myself to react with fear to the fact that something was stolen from my partner because I perceived this as losing something valuable. When and as I see myself fearing of losing money and/or something valuable - I stop and breathe. I realize and understand that when something can be taken away from me this means I really had it and so it is pointless to create the fear of losing it as this will certainly happen. Thus I commit myself to make sure that I do not create the fear of losing money and/or something that I perceive as valuable that can be taken away because I understand that I never really had it in the first place.

I forgive myself that I accepted and allowed myself to react with spitefulness towards the saleswoman who stole something because I judged her as evil and inferior because she took away something without permission. When and as I see myself reacting with spitefulness towards someone who stole something - I stop and breathe. I realize and understand that I am judging the person for doing something without the consent of another where I then make myself feel superior and justify it with the statement that doing so is abusive and unacceptable, instead of putting myself into the shoes of others and taking into consideration all the factors/conditions that brought another into a position where he/she would steal or do something without permission. Thus I commit myself to make sure that I do not react with spite to others and judge them as evil when I see/perceive that they stole something or did something without permission of another, instead I put myself into the shoes of others and stand as an example of how we must take self-responsibility for ourselves and the world in order to create a society where stealing will not be necessary and where we will all consider what is best for all.

I forgive myself that I accepted and allowed myself to define following the law as just and fair where I would then feel superior to other who I would see/perceive as not following the law. When and as I see myself making myself feel superior to those I see/perceive are not following the law - I stop and breathe. I realize and understand that laws in this world are corrupted and written in a way where some get more "justice" than others based on how much money they have and so it is all based on selfishness. Thus I commit myself to make sure that I do not define/perceive following the law as just and fair and then make myself superior to those I see/perceive are not following the law as I understand that most of the laws are based on selfishness and so must be rewritten in a way that is best for all, where following the law will actually grand to all a Dignified Life.
