Afraid of rejection.

The thought of wondering why most believers, who believe in the spiritual world are willing to give unconditional and undivided love to a belief of faith, which they could only feel, when they are not prepared to offer the similar kind of love to the real world of people whom they can see, talk and touch. I had spoken to many friends regarding this subject and not many could give me a logical answer. One even told me that the spiritual world cannot be compared with people. But in fact, this friend had forgotten, it is the spiritual world that taught us to be loving and kind to others. What is the point to be loving to the Almighty alone ,when you are selfish to the world! Perhaps this is the part that most people lack in the understanding of life. To be loving and kind to the unseen, unheard and untouchable but selfish to those we actually can see, talk and touch.

To my surprise, my secretary who is a very religious lady and has been working with me for fifteen years gave me the powerful reason. According to her, the spiritual world is always blissful for the mind but the real world of people give rejection. Yes! The answer is, people just don't like to be rejected or afraid of rejection. Loving a person has joy and pain. Pain is a form of rejection which most people try to avoid. To succeed in selling, one has to be rejected many times to gain a sale. Sales rejection is a frustration process. You want to smile to the world but not necessary the world smiles back. Conclusion: to avoid rejection most people tend to be more reserve and selfish in nature. Solution: prepare to accept the rejection of life which is unavoidable.

I strongly believe; "We worry about our family, we worry about money or the lack of it, we worry about work, about where we live, about all sorts of thing. These are all burdens, the things we pick up along life's path and lug them around the obstacles and over the crevasses that life will bring; only to find that, at the destination they are useless and we can't take them with us. So be happy yourself and just do your best and surprises would come your way".
