I see I’ve had some visitors to my blog. Yes, I know, you may be surprised that my focus is on sharing happiness. It’s exploring life, a bit of this and that and, absolutely and utterly, my own point of view in which, I hope, adds a tiny spark of inspiration.
Not what you expected, I’m sure.
You see, The last 48 hours have been incredibly brutal, yet very enlightening. The perfect storm of false allegations, character defamation and pure ugliness.
Because everything you see on social media is true, at least that’s what you believe… at least I think it is since there is a wealth of accumulated ugliness a mile high left across social media forcing me to shut things down or limit access.
Just makes me sad.
Despite all that, I still believe that love and faith is a healing balm. And my prayer is for unity, kindness and fortitude.
You bring a torch to burn my house down. Instead, let’s use that torch to light the world up with LOVE.
I’ll leave today’s post with something I’ve heard over the years, in one form or another, which has stayed with me. Especially when faced in difficult situations like this.
“Before you speak, let your words pass through three gates:
At the first gate, ask yourself “Is is true?”
At the second gate ask, “Is it necessary?”
At the third gate ask, “Is it kind?”
~ Rumi (in this version)
Sending you love and happiness.
