Truth telling

This year's election has certainly shaken things up. But perhaps, it's exactly what we needed... A wake-up call!  Though the election has given us permission to express our unhappiness out loud, I'm pretty certain that we were already unhappy... And though we may feel justified in our political beliefs or our concerns for the future, judgement and fear have no value to the world... The world is need of LOVE, patience, tolerance..... We make an offering of LOVE by building bridges, not walls... Instead of pointing fingers at our brothers, we need to understand that they merely mirroring all things we don't like about ourselves... What is the mirror? Arrogance, dishonesty, judgement, pridefulness... Each of us have those qualities, though you may disagree... Take dishonesty for example... Do you let people see who you really are? Do you always speak the truth or do you say what you think others may want to hear?  Is that being honest?

“Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don't know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings.” ― Anaïs Nin
