let the one through the first stone – that has never sinned. That was in a situation where a mob had gathered around a woman – a prostitute, to stone her to death.
A mob that felt they had the right and the obligation to condemn another persons actions and intentions.
I dont see a lot of difference in todays world – 2000+ years after, now the mob has just become global through the internet and social media.
What is it in us humans that give us the feeling and pleasure of mobbing others, and why does it happen still?
What is it that makes us believe that we have a right without responsibility to speak and act unjustified towards people of other beliefs, gender, race, religion etc. that basically relates to different opinion of life, karma, actions.
We have different laws in every country but the basic laws are based on the 10 commandmendts from Moses and after updated in different forms.
All we do is always observed by God, so why do people need to interfere in that relationship between man and God.
Actually in all its simplicity we are here to learn, and through our own but especially others actions in our relationships we learn to know who we are.
So when a mob gatheres to punish someone for something which they as humans as well could have done under different circumstances, with another karma, its all about learning to know, and each react on feelings in the moment to learn who they are – for later regret or approval. Every human learn in every moment of their life. Whether you are in the mob or the victim of the mob.
So how can we prevent the mob effect and let people have their own point of view.
Through self-love (complete acceptance of who we are – good and bad) we learn to love others. If there is no or little self-love, we will use our right and obligation to mob or bully others (from small badmouthing others to actual terrorism) unconsciously, as that becomes our way to learn and to release our hate in ourselves.
There is only one true way home to God again, and that is to become aware of our feelings, what ignites them and handle them accordingly and by that treat people around us in a more kind way.
Other people is not responsible for our self-hate, only we ourselves are. Other people should not be punished from our self-hate. Noone is responsible for your actions or reactions, but yourself.
So become aware and learn to live in love and kindness through accepting your emotions and controlling your actions. Live in love <3
Live in love
