Without the Values and Belief Fence, our hearts begin to resemble a flophouse, where anyone and anything goes
Humans are resilient creatures. We adapt – on the outside. What’s happening to us on the inside?
We should all be wearing psychic masks to avoid spewing our discomfort, pain and fear on others. Blaming other people or institutions (like the government) isn’t going to work.
Act justly, forgive freely, remain teachable. This is how we will continue to evolve. This is how we will effect change in our society.
Humans are complicated, they are layered, like Ogres. Maybe people are ogres. We hungrily devour those who’s words and behaviors are incongruent with our value systems.
Sometimes my faith is enormous like I’m ensconced in a fluffy white cloud, floating above all the misery. Sometimes my faith is small, like me.
Let us use this time to cultivate kindness, compassion, and tolerance. Let’s not allow this time to divide us even more so that we were before.
When all of this started back in the second week of March, I was terrified, mystified.
Weeks went by. We experienced grief.
Here’s where we are today:
Thoughts, beliefs, words are powerful things. I believe in the ultimate Goodness of God.
Acceptance isn’t the same as absolution. We don’t have to condone the stuff, we have to accept the stuff.
When I am 100% focused in this moment, my listening improves.
