How do I respond to unconscious, aggressive people?
In my own experience a very good way to deal with unconscious, aggressive people is to have no reaction at all and to be completely present in the moment rather than being taken over by an unconscious reaction of my own ego.
Just recently I was confronted with a very unconscious person who was just waiting for any reaction of me to give his ego a reason to get angry… but because I did not reacted at all, stayed present in the moment, silent and surrendered to the situation the “conflict” was solved within moments. I did not feed the persons pain body and all the person could do was leaving and going back to his business.
A good spiritual practice. 🙂
