I've noticed that most of the people who're into metaphysics are kind. We have a less intense way of looking at the world and are more tolerant than many of the people we meet on our journey through life. This attitude seems to go hand in hand with a genuine interest in the mysteries.
If you take a moment to think about it, I'm sure you'll see that you're a nice person and strive for harmony in your life.
So why do some people take great pleasure in picking on us?
For example: you may be involved in some sort of activity--work, play, driving, resting at home, shopping, minding your own business and blammo, it happens. Someone harshly intrudes into your world, intent on letting you know how you've offended them. It may be a phone call, email, hand gesture, backhanded comment or my personal favorite, the grocery cart combination eye-roll/glare accompanied by the huge sigh of exasperation. (This always cracks me up, adding to the problem.)
Perhaps you're questioning my assertion that nice people get targeted. If so, you're one of the lucky ones, but as a relatively laid back fellow and an advisor of some pretty sweet people, I see this often. It may not be traditional bullying, but there are times when kind hearted people are oppressed, seemingly just because it seems easy. The offenders often see a kind person as someone who can be intimidated verbally, emotionally or even physically.
Those who think that kindness is a weakness need to reevaluate their thinking. Nothing could be further from the truth. In this world, at this time, it would be much easier to be cynical and mean-spirited than to be kind in heart. It takes compassion and a great sense of determination to treat others well and to be kind. Being angry or malicious is the easy way out.
Happiness is a choice, and most people don't realize that they have the key to personal joy within them. This lack of power can make them prone to anger. To a person struggling in their career, relationship or their own sense of self, someone who's mild-mannered may appear to be a safe outlet for their frustrations.
Remember, most bullies have been bullied themselves and are simply passing on what they've learned. This neither excuses them nor gives them legitimacy. It simply is what it is.
Although it's difficult to have compassion for people who shove their way through life, you'll find that in the long run it helps. When people try to inflict some sort of aggravation upon us and we don't react the way they expect, it deflates them. They find themselves at odds with their own actions. It's like taking a swing at someone and having them step out of the way; your own momentum pulls you down.
The reason I'm bringing this up is because many people I know, good, kindhearted souls, have been picked on lately. They've been accused of things they haven't done, they've been pushed to the point where it seems like there's nowhere left to go, they've been challenged in almost every field of their life, and at times they've been bullied. This doesn't mean they've taken it, though.
Remember, being kind doesn't mean being weak and those who think otherwise are at a disadvantage.
Nice people appear to be easy targets. However, we know how to stand firmly on our principles and maintain our sense of what's important. As a matter of fact, most of us are so ethically grounded that it's almost impossible to push us off our foundations.
It's the impenetrable boundaries we live by that sometimes cause the biggest problems, but therein lies the joy of knowing who you are. As long as we know who and what we are, the mean or thoughtless actions of others are swings that miss. Yes, they affect us, but in the long run they only serve to exhaust the attacker.
Some people want to overcome your basic goodness and push you into acting as they do, thus justifying their own lack of right action. It's the oldest trick in the book, dragging you down to their level of dysfunction. Don't fall for it.
If you're overlooked at work and a higher profile employee repeatedly gets recognition, don't take it personally. If your neighbor takes advantage of every opportunity to annoy you, try to let it go. Even if a friend or family member goes out of their way to injure you, try to turn away from it. Being kind has its bumps, but being mean is much, much worse.
A word of warning to those who think kindness is a weakness. When we're pushed or have a cause that we believe in, or our loved ones are threatened, we can be as ferocious as a lion and as cunning as a fox.
No one should ever mistake us for being weak or easy to overcome. Although being compassionate may include passivity, it sometimes means taking the bull by the horns and wrestling it to the ground, then giving it a kiss on the forehead.
May your week be filled with strength, kindness and joy.
Program Note: Out of Mo's Mind will air at its usual time, Wednesday, 9 AM Pacific Time, and I have no idea yet what my topic will be. To some, not having it all laid out would be the stuff that bad dreams are made of. I once wore a toga for a play in high school. At one point, howls of laughter erupted and I realized that I'd tied the toga badly and my classmates were watching me deliver a monologue in my underpants. I finished my speech with a swagger and received a standing ovation. Since public speaking in one's underwear ranks right up there on the list of people's fears, very little gets to me anymore.

My primary guide is Archangel Michael. I have been channeling messages from him for several years now. He has been with me, watching over and guiding me my whole life. He has been such a blessing to me. I would like to share some of my favorite messages from AA Michael with you!
Michael says "Take the time to go slow, and be quiet. So much is lost in the fast paced, noisy world you live in. Your angels are standing next to you, trying to get your attention all day, it is hard to get through. Give yourself permission to feel peaceful everyday. Being peaceful inside yourself creates peace on the outside as well."
Michael says "Call on me in times of turmoil. I will stand by your side and keep you safe. You are powerful, and can overcome anything. I will remind you of your strength when you forget who you really are."
Michael says "When you feel overwhelmed or vulnerable, call me in for protection. Ask me to come to you and surround you with blue energy. I will always come when you ask me to. My energy will create a barrier between you and the outside world, protecting you from lower vibrating energy. I love you, and am here to support you everyday."
Michael says "Listen to your body. It is important that you take the time to rest. When your body and mind are tired your connection to your angels is weakened. Trust your inner knowing and take the time to care for your physical body in order to keep your connection strong."
Michael says "Peace, love and understanding. This is all anyone wants. When you feel frustrated with another person look at them from this perspective. How is their behavior asking for peace, love or understanding? See them with a compassionate heart. Remember that you need compassion from others, too. You are all good on the inside."
Michael says "When we, the angels, are working to bring something to you timing is important. Our timing and your timing don't always match up. When you ask for our help trust that we will bring everything together at exactly the right time. If you try to interfere and force something to happen, it will turn out badly. Release your desires to us and trust that we will bring them to you in the most perfect way."
Michael says "Your beliefs create your reality. Be aware of your beliefs and choose them wisely, as they will bring you peace. Be conscious of the beliefs that limit your life, and release them. Ask me to take old beliefs that no longer serve you, and I will turn them into love."
Have a blessed holiday!
