Sometimes watching others working or just sitting on sand counting the waves makes my soul very happy.
Life helps us to learn that with each new day comes moments of learning and acceptances and understanding that life is best taken with a bit of everything. ~ Hermann J Steinherr
“With everything that has happened to you, you can either feel sorry for yourself or treat what has happened as a gift. Everything is either an opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing. You get to choose.” – Dr. Wayne W Dyer
Nurturing Thursday- Be yourself
Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.
The 8th sin in my opinion is prejudice.
We all are very quick to make opinion about other people based on their color, caste and creed, religion, culture or country, without actually giving it a try to understand what they really stand for.
“Prejudice is the child of ignorance”~ Willam Hazlitt“We are each burdened with prejudice; against the poor or the rich, the smart or the slow, the gaunt or the obese. It is natural to develop prejudices. It is noble to rise above them.” ~Author Unknown
“Preconceived notions are the locks on the door to wisdom.” ~Merry Browne“Prejudices are the chains forged by ignorance to keep men apart.” ~Countess of Blessington“Morality is simply the attitude we adopt towards people whom we personally dislike. “~Oscar Wilde
“Judgments prevent us from seeing the good that lies beyond appearances.” ~Wayne W. Dyer“Scout,” said Atticus, “nigger-lover is just one of those terms that don’t mean anything—like snot-nose. It’s hard to explain—ignorant, trashy people use it when they think somebody’s favoring Negroes over and above themselves. It’s slipped into usage with some people like ourselves, when they want a common, ugly term to label somebody.”
“You aren’t really a nigger-lover, then, are you?”
“I certainly am. I do my best to love everybody… I’m hard put, sometimes—baby, it’s never an insult to be called what somebody thinks is a bad name. It just shows you how poor that person is, it doesn’t hurt you.” (11.107-109)
