Preferences and Why They Matter
Date: May 27, 2020 05:46PM
The majority of manipulative people, spiritual teachers, and cult leaders each share are an affinity for removing other people’s preferences.
They will usually try to remove our preferences by making whatever preferences we may have wrong in some way, or by blanketing a false fact that to have preference is an act of ultimate ego, so unless you remove your preferences, you cannot progress spiritually or in whatever way it is that the manipulator, spiritual teacher, or cult leader has put into plan.
Preferences are our autonomy. Within our own context of limits, each of us has the equal freedom to choose our own preferences as individual free people, and so long as preference do not intentionally cause harm to ourselves or others, our preferences are what bring us contentment in our lives.
When we choose our own preferences we are healthily meeting our own needs. It can be a marker towards how much happiness you experience in life.
Living by others preferences means that we suit the needs of others, not ourselves. Our lives remain unfulfilled whilst we blinker ourselves into thinking that service or seva makes us happy and fulfilled, and other excuses such as we were evil or wrong to have such preference.
The truth remains, that if you have no preference you have no autonomy, therefore you are not free.
Incidentally, those who disallow others preference remain rigid, stuck in the very programming that they themselves try to impose on the beings around them.
Take good care every one, and hope you’l enjoy having a preference of some kind after reading this.. no matter how simple it may be.
I choose a nice herbal tea :-)
