Pot Calling Kettle …
August 31, 2016!
‘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
Individually, and especially collectively, the emotional ‘IQ’, which is called ‘EQ’ leaves a lot to be desired for love and
peace, hence the never ending conﬂicts, anger and wars. Misinformation and misinterpretation clings to the ‘pot and
kettle people’ like tarred feathers ’til death do they part’. If a tree is not growing tall and straight, it must be rectiﬁed
early for not being growing correctly, it will always be
a problem. Likewise, all things in nature,
particularly, humans trying to ‘being human’, which
is clear, straight and tall to meet all life’s challenges
or not from the highest point of view.!
It’s time now for humans to raise their
consciousness, and be like gods or godliness for
themselves and all that they encounter with any
issues becoming opportunities to seek the highest
answers. 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
the real you which is the ‘heaven of love’ incarnate.!
