You are right My dear they do not. And this is the very place where most get tripped up on and in life. For they expect those around them to “bring them happiness” to behave in “such and such ways” as to be perfectly pleasing to them, bringing them happiness continually, constantly. We know that those around you do most often bring you joy, but as well agree that they are not always in line with what feels good to you.
It is good that you can separate yourself from this activity and realize that it does not have to be for you to partake of in anyway. You have to detach from your ego response and calmly observe the others. More and more We know you are seeing this commotion for what it is just co-motion, back and forth banter, and egoic reactions. Yes, you are right not to participate, to hold your tongue and visit your heart.
Come to Me and be still with Me, rest in peace, in the peace of My love which you know. And as you remain in and become this peace you show My love unto the world. Please be happy, for I am so happy to have you home in My heart. Remember, you have not yet opened all the gifts I have for you. Yes, others have known and spoken this wisdom I give as well unto you. Let this knowledge comfort and inspire you.
