There are days when this could be me. My busy mind chattering and chattering about dear knows what. I don’t think I whine and complain, but that is because I don’t want to believe that I am just as guilty as the next person at having a negative day. All my life I have known that no two people will see the mountain view the same way, even though they are looking from the same vantage point.
An exercise that we practice in PL (Perfect Liberty) is to work at accepting the differences in life and to respect the difference in others.
I fell short today, I disagreed with a sentiment sent to me by a caring sister. I vented. yet on reflection, she was only giving voice to her perspective and in doing so, used the language and comfort terms of her personal beliefs. I want respect for my beliefs I in turn need to respect hers, and allow her, her form of expression. The bottom line is she cares. That I appreciate.
PL Principle 21 – I will not have complaints about others, matters, nor the weather Rather I will always be creative and will look for shortcomings in my own thinking and actions.
My thanks to Little Sister (Wei) who is traveling in Mexico right now, these are her pictures.
I will be visiting NY State tomorrow. See you all on my return. have a great start to the new week.
