One Simple Truth
The events in last week’s news reminded me of a simple truth. Our inner landscape will always be reflected in our outer world. As a person, a group, or a nation, our minds create our actions. And in that truth, we may become a victim of somebody else’s mind, or somebody may become a victim of ours. In either case, healing begins when positive action is taken.
As Eleanor Roosevelt once said “It’s better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.” We all have prejudices. And, most of those judgments go far deeper than the color of our skin. So perhaps this is a good time to go inside and ask ourselves how we can become more accepting. What hatred toward ourselves, or others, are we willing to relinquish to let our candles shine brighter?
