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.
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.
Fear prevents us from seeing how we can help. It blocks us. We can’t know where the need is because our compulsive self-preservation consumes us.
Love exorcises the demon of selfishness and replaces it with contentment.
Love is still the answer
True contentment comes from letting go of the belief that something is lacking and that if we can fill that lack, then we will be happy.
