I used to believe that I could read people; get a keen sense of who they really are and their character. Used to be very perceptive. Well, lately, I find myself saddened by the depths of deception of people. And I didn’t see it coming. I used to be able to get a feel for some people before they even say a word. Not anymore – I second guess everything lately. Sad. I need to re-develop my right brain. Still be sympathetic but need to work on my emphatic accuracy again…I used to have that sense.
In a perfect world, you’d never judge someone until you got to know their personality inside and out — you know, the whole thing about judging a book by its cover. This is not a perfect world, however — this is a world where sometimes we need to judge the intentions of a stranger in a split second.
You only have to trust your intuition to know how the people you’re meeting from time to time will affect your fate. I am actively working on being open to the possibilities of mixing my karma with those who cross my path and who may in fact be my soul mates. But I am trying to remain optimistic as well as realistic and am no longer believe that a fireworks display will be the signal for these meetings when in fact it may be a rather quiet and simple experience.
