Gandhi said “I will not let anyone walk through my mind with their dirty feet.”
I read this and wonder where he was when he wrote it, how he was feeling.
I wonder if he believed this was possible.
I don’t think it is.
People get in before I have an opportunity to evaluate their conditions.. and it’s a good thing because my judgemental mind would keep way too many out who I desperately need.
Perhaps he said this once he’d repaired the wounds that create judgment in the first place, perhaps he’d learned self love to such a state that he could operate this way.
I have not.
Until then, I’ll continue to try to set aside my judgements and let people in until I find them unhealthy for me… and I’ll be extra careful of who I place that judgement on because I see front and center my tenancy to blow it in this area.
Three steps, one bow. Carry on.
