Daily Mood that Makes the Weather

I have come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element. It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather.

I possess tremendous power to make a life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture, or an instrument of inspiration.

I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal.

In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis will be escalated or de-escalated, and a person humanized or dehumanized.

If we treat people as they are, we make them worse. If we treat people as they ought to be, we help them become what they are capable of becoming.

First Law of Nature

What is tolerance? It is the consequence of humanity. We are all formed of frailty and error; let us pardon reciprocally each other’s folly – that is the first law of nature.~Voltaire

I for one am not perfect and have not met any one person who is, but have found we are all uniquely imperfectly perfect just the way we are. If someone brings anger or harm to us, carving obscenities into the bark of our flesh…send them Love. In doing so, we are freed of associated emotions instilled by the ill behavior…leaving us to share only Love.
