You can choose… Your God’s name over someone else’s God’s name… but are they so different?
You can choose…to be better than someone else because they are different because of… social class, race, religion, they make less, look funny, or…?
You can choose
…to believe that men are better than women, and treat them that way… which is fairly prevalent in some countries, but unfortunately is still true here in the U.S. of A. too.
…that black is better than white.
…that your ideology is better than theirs.
…that right is better than left; or is it that left is better than right???
… that sticking to one’s guns is far better than compromise.
… to be right instead of being kind.
… to cut in line, instead of being courteous.
… to have it your way, instead of considerig someone else’s way.
… to cut someone off, instead of leting someone in.
… to be magnaminous when someone is having a bad day, rather than being rude.
…to open a door, instead of shuting one.
… to love instead of hating.
…to find peace and joy, instead choosing anger, frustration, and pain.
What are you choosing today? Tomorrow. What did you choose yesterday? What is in your head every day? These are the thoughts that make you who you are. These are what you bring into the world. More importantly, perhaps, what are you listening to — broadcasts of anger, hate, frustration, fear, people railing against each other about this thing or that? Or are you finding more positive things to pay attention to? Every day I try to find something positive to read or listen to. And every night before I fall asleep I try to remember to read or think of something positive. It’s a start. Here’s one I thought up yeserday: If every day were a massage — what a great world it would be! (Brings a smile to MY face!
And in the morning you can start your day that way, too. :}
