I try not to judge though I have my preconceptions and certainly prejudices. Or, is it preferences?
My mother was the absolute LEAST judgmental person I’ve yet to meet. She could poke fun at herself though ALWAYS found something to praise in EVERYONE. And, when I had a crisis to face in my life….life IS full of them, she was patient, rational and even-headed.
Her resource directory, remedy bag, was perhaps not as abundant as mine, as I had (have) a world view that expands her perimeters. I’ve found possibility and solutions with actions she’d never consider. But, she’s the one who gave me the courage to search and search as I do, until I get the answer I need… or better.
And if you’ve read his blog for even a short piece of time, you’ll know that I’m ALL for BETTER!
So, I’m still looking for some things, some people, some ideas, some ways of being, attitudes and actions to serve me best, (and the world’s) highest good. And I work….I endeavor to catch myself when I am being less than loving, judgmental or stuck on only one perception as I journey forward.
I consider what if I were that person; what might make them act the way they do, where do they hurt, fear, what is their outrage or sorrow? We all have them….especially fear and lack of knowing.
I’ll send love and compassion out to those folks this evening. And for me to be understanding of them.
And I’ll keep searching til the right people, places, remedies, things, magic, which meets my vision, meets my heart.
There is, to me, no other way.
Anything less is an abomination to my soul.
And might I work to be loving as I traverse this planet boldly meeting others, finding the miracles, medicine, means, that suit me best.
And, may there be ample grace, certainly coming from me, along the path.
