Intolerance

“After all, isn’t fear the true basis of intolerance?” ~Anon. Intolerance: unwillingness to accept views, beliefs, or behaviors that differ from one’s own. Treating some people good & others bad, is caused by fear. Argument & fault finding are caused by fear. Most of what we see in the world today is intolerant & is a direct result of fear. If someone mistreats me, I will protect myself, understand their fear & pray for them. If I mistreat someone else, I will protect myself, understand my fear & pray that it be removed. The goal for today: get rid of fear… & practice real tolerance! Have a great day everybody!

Intolerance

“We spoke of intolerance, while we were intolerant ourselves” ~Anon.
I used to get mad when people lied, but somehow convinced myself that it was ok for me to lie.
I used to get mad when people started rumors about me, but I had no problem starting rumors about them.
I used to get mad when people pushed their beliefs on me, but I expected them to be ok with me pushing my beliefs on them.
The goal for today: no double standards, hypocrisy or intolerance… just Love & Respect toward all!
Have a great day everybody!

I Don’t Want To Be A Hypocrite

“We talked of intolerance, while we were intolerant ourselves” ~Anon.

If I had a nickel for every time I bitched about somebody doing something that I had been guilty of doing many times myself… I’d be rich.

I get mad when people lie, as if I’ve never lied.

I get mad when people are selfish, as if I’ve never been selfish.

I expect you to understand me, when I’m unwilling to try to understand you.

The goal for today: stop setting standards for others to live up to & start practicing personal responsibility instead!

Have a great day everybody!
