To take offense is stupid… even when it is freely given.
To receive a “gift” (offense) when it is “offered” which kills one’s sense of peace and self-value, again, is pure stupidity. (Would you accept a ticking BOMB if it was freely given to you?) A healthier option is to refrain from receiving the proffered “gift,” respond with a calm “No thanks” or “Okay, You be right” and turn away from the “gift-giver,” mentally replaying HAPPY thoughts within one’s mind, preserving one’s dignity, peace, self-confidence, and pure outlook. Although common thought labels those who deal with offense in the above manner as “weak,” history shows that they are the Truly Empowered Ones… the “MEEK” (“who shall inherit the earth”).
To rob/ TAKE/ steal a “gift” (offense) when it is not even intended is the height of stupidity. Really? TAKE offense? Of all the things one would choose or be “tempted” to TAKE and one chooses “offense”? Really?!
Why EVER “take offense”?
Realize that everyone is doing the best they can at the moment.
When all the details are exposed, the physical and emotional pains and traumas that each is dealing with, the childhood with its lessons and scars, the relationship issues, the financial strains and pressures…
When each and every detail affecting the human you are dealing with are finally exposed to your view, THEN you will realize that it Really is STUPID to ever take offense… when it sure seems to be intended OR when you’re not sure if it is an over-sight or not.
Leave it alone! Calmly wink your eye, give a gentle smile and mentally say to the opportunity life is giving you to take offense: “I know who you are! I won’t fall for the opportunity to pick you up! No, thank you very much!”
Pass that emotional test!
Break the habit of taking offense!
By doing such, you will give your Self the gift of mental harmony. You will find yourself on the road to Emotional Mastery. You will become a *VIEWER* and positive contributor of LIFE, instead of a pathetic RE-ACTOR.
By never taking offense, one can deal with one’s earth-mates with no more:
*rumors of wars…
Gift your Self the gift of Emotional Empowerment. Break the habit of taking offense!
In my pursuit of Real Truth, I have given up everything. Crawling through the “eye of the needle,” I have learned the *mysteries* and am now giving my life to assist YOU to dis-cover Who *YOU* really are, along with your unique gift to offer humanity. As you learn to seek (in the right place and with purified intent), you WILL find treasures of lasting value, along with every promised reward. Together, we will establish a society of humane beings and live life ALIVE, on PURPOSE, and with a sociality unequaled… because we will each BE and view each other as equally and profoundly DIVINE! Please… catch this Hope and Vision and join with me.
