During out lives, some of us change. We change our opinions. We change our philosophy. We change our outlook on life and on people. I think I understand where people are coming from sometimes, but sometimes I am wrong. People think they know where I am coming from,but sometimes they are wrong. I think we are here to serve and be kind.
To all people.
Not just to those who agree with us on our philosophy, our morals, and especially our judgement. I have spent a whole lot of my life being judgmental. Learning to turn that situation loose has been extremely hard and it’s still an ongoing battle every day. So I hope to keep my most private thoughts mostly in my head….which is where they belong. I hope everyone else can take a look at themselves and try and do the same.
Mother Teresa said: “If you judge people, you have no time to love them.” Very simple, but very deep. If we spend so much time trying to decide who is right and who is wrong about any given thing, that is time that is taken up not loving others.
Quite honestly, I believe that you don’t even have to interact with people physically to love them. You don’t even have to know them personally to love them. You certainly cannot love them if you judge them to be beyond the philosophy OF your love. I can’t understand how I can love someone and condemn them at the same time. Is that not an impossibility?
