Practicing non-judgement and open mindedness as much as possible, I watched the Republican convention speech. I’ll do the same with the Democratic version.
I appreciate entering situations that allow me to practice discernment and compassion.
The more I listened, the more out of place I felt. I don’t recognize the world being described.
I am not accustomed to focusing on what’s wrong versus what’s right. I’m a fan of evidenced based reality so I’m not interested in avoiding what’s wrong, I just have found that words have incredible power and compassion brings incredible solutions to our troubles.
And, mostly, when I’m really working on myself and my world, I don’t have time to talk about others.
Practice, then pause.
When in doubt, pause.
When angry, pause.
When tired, pause.
When stressed, pause.
and when you pause, pray.
