The Cosmic Law of Projection ~ Judith Kusel


The Cosmic Law of Projection:
All that we perceive outside of self reflects or mirrors something within us. All is but a projection, for everything we see outside ourselves is a projection and illusionary.
We project all our stuff, our emotions, our thoughts, both good and bad, on to other people and assume it is within them, and most often denying that it is there present within us.
The truth is:
You can only see yourself.
You can only hear yourself.
You can only talk to yourself.
You can only criticize yourself.
You can only praise yourself.
When you say: “You are….” Or “He or she is…”you are projecting something of yourself onto someone else. If you say: “You are weird!” you are seeing some of your own weirdness within that person.
So often we assume that someone else feels as we do, and that is a projection too. “You must feel awful about that” or “You must be delighted” are both projections. Those who project their own hatred, think everyone is out to get them. We also tend to project our own insecurities and sexuality on to others. The person who is paranoid about the morality of others is projecting their own underlying immorality. The boss who suspects all his employees are cheating him, is projecting his inner cheat and thus attracts cheats. The wife who is constantly accusing her husband of having affairs, is projecting her own lack of faith in the relationship.
When a couple is in love, each is projecting their inner beauty on to the other. Seeing our radiance magnified and reflected in another offers a great opportunity for spiritual growth. Being in love is a state of Grace.
Generalised projections are very common, such as “Everyone is afraid of tigers”, “All women are chatterboxes” is a disservice to everyone else, and reflects what you are indeed projecting onto others.
Your life is what you experience. Other people probably experience it very differently. So watch your projections and work on yourself. Understanding this law offers enormous opportunities for personal and spiritual growth.
Fact is: You do not know what anyone feels or is. Everything you see in another is a projection of an aspect of yourself.
