I've been thinking, and I have some kind of a theory formulated. Consider this a disclaimer when I say that in no way is there any fact to this theory. It's just something I was thinking, "philanthropizing" if that's a word.
The thing is, I've been thinking. I've come to a conclusion, about the way we see people. Now, this isn't at all a physical thing. When I mean see, I mean perceive. I mean how we feel people (there's no room for pervert jokes here, please keep your mind out of the gutter). There's a certain..feeling you get. Something like a vibe; lets you know the person you're sitting with is a certain way. It may not be too accurate a judgement when we first start depending on this tool to feel vibes, but I believe later on after experience and perceptional use one is able to get very close to what is the truth. Yes boys and girls; I am speaking of a person's "aura". Haven't heard that word in a while have you? Well if it's any consolation neither have I for some time now. It seems we have forgotten that it may exist in our fast paced world with our fast paced thoughts and and our fast paced lives. I believe that it exists and not only that but that sensing it can be crucial to our daily lives, our decisions and our thoughts.
I see it as something that is projected around the outer body, something that is almost felt if another gets very close. If dangerous; it's threat can be felt as if one was actually touching it. If warm..friendly, one would feel enveloped by its security..it's protection. If strong, anyone in its range would be influenced by its power. Now - I don't believe that if an aura is weak that it can be overpowered..every aura that surrounds its owner is strong. It may be that some auras are stronger than others at different points in time: based on current states/points of mentality at the time. The strength of an aura could be the manifestation of the thoughts and emotions at play in the owners mind; if disturbed then it would be unstable...if angry it would be seething...and one could almost feel it.
But the rabbit-hole goes deeper.
Picture if you will, a person. Around that person two..layers. Each layer is an aura. Consider the one we spoke of above as the outer layer - the first aura. It is the one where the intentions and thoughts which change periodically manifest..or the one which will give you the feel of a person's current state of mind. It's what gives you that apprehensive feeling when someone is approaching you or the indication that someone might be upset, or happy. It's the shell...and it can be changed. It can be shed, it can be manipulated, and it will keep changing over the months and years. Now consider if you will a second, inner aura. This is the true self, the representation of the real you.
This is the one that we are born with; the pure aura of who and what we really are. Now read carefully: not what we think or feel...this is who we ARE. Our character..our innate habitual behavior. This aura will always remain constant, always remain to be the truth. If you ever learn to see the outer aura, you will soon learn to see through..to reach through the first one and touch the second. This is what will help you decide. It's funny that I strongly believe animals can most accurately judge based on this aura. Even as I write this, sitting on a bench on a busy street bustling with busy auras scrambling around - a street cat has come and randomly hopped into my lap. I believe it can feel that I mean it no harm, and this is why it has done so (ps- this happens to me everywhere, all around the world). It's this ability to kind if read inner aura which tells me wether someone can be trusted or not. Remember..the inner aura isn't about personality..it's about character. It's about the true behavioral pattern that a certain individual has in him/her, and those can never be changed. The outer aura will tell you that this person cheats or doesn't cheat, but the inner will tell you if this person has an honest heart or not. The outer might tell you wether a person is a show-off or humble, but the inner aura will tell you if he's truly grateful or not.
It's not easy to tell the differences between the two..in-fact its fairly difficult - but once you learn how to reach in and see the truth inside...it will change the way you perceive people, change the way you react with them. Of course...it isn't a perfect science, but then again..sometimes when you feel that the person sitting across the table from you isn't real: try to feel through and check again. You might find someone new, or someone you never knew at all.
