The most important thing in this whole world is to give love, and receive love. Emphasis on treating others as we would hope to be treated ourselves. The most revered teacher on love and kindness is no doubt Jesus Christ of Nazareth. He was the greatest utilitarian to ever walk the face of this earth. He gave us a lot of wisdom through his parables. One of my favorites; when he was relating how much Injury is caused to humans by idle gossip. He said that gossiping kills three people; the person spewing the gossip, the person listening, and the person the gossip is about. I thought about this for a long time. I knew he was hypothesizing, but he was dead center on the mark. I have personally seen the pain, & yes actual death, caused by others who engage in this travesty. I stay away from gossipers, people who judge, and label others. Why hurt people?
I have zero tolerance for people who have zero respect for others & for themselves. Those who would choose to manipulate, deceive, denigrate, & hurt others in an attempt to further their own self-gain & elevate themselves are unable to embrace the concept of respect. All of us have a conscious choice. It's not that difficult. Simple, BE KIND :-) ❤️
My favorite book, Democracy in America, volumes one & two by Alexis de Tocqueville. On a lighthter side, Who Moved My Cheese, by Spencer Johnson M.D One of my favorite quotes. "Sometimes you have to reach beyond reality to capture your Dream" By Me 1-25 -96 If by chance you have been hurt, & unfairly kicked around by someone you trusted; Some wise advice from my wonderful late husband shortly before his untimely death. "Regardless of how broken you feel, & how hard you have been kicked down, the most important concept of all is the way in which you "rise", Rise with integrity, & dignity. Rise with God. Rise with Honor, & courage. It's not the fall, but the rise from the fall that counts.
