Is it possible to "want nothing from another?" Don’t we naturally want people to be kind? Yes, this is part of the human condition. The problems arise when the mind habitually wants people to be different than they are.
Our painful relationships with others are most often caused by unconsciously feeding the wanting to change people we cannot change, like family or people with whom you work!
When you notice being caught up in wanting someone to be different – drop the wanting, and want nothing. You won’t become passive or turn off your feelings. In fact, you may notice more awareness, clarity and compassion. Notice what happens for your self.
Remembering awareness is a gift to your self and others. Please take care.
