“Any fool can know. The point is to understand.” ~ Albert Enstein
“Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.” ~ Carl Jung
I have been really thinking about what is going around me lately. Trying to explain things I believe in (e.g., social justice, why PBS should be funded, why just having lists of women's names in a binder are limiting, why healthcare should be for everyone, a process model everyone can use, cookie ingredients, relationships, why human trafficking needs to end, why access to birth control and emergency contraceptives is important ....fill in the blank) Well it all gets messed up.....
I find myself coming back to living out of love. Specifically, thinking about the act of giving and receiving love. And, it is very hard down here on earth to at least keep in balance.
If we were to believe we are all precious beings of love rather than having an attitude of accomodation - maybe we would get along better. I've been meditating a lot on the balance between the iron and pearl pentagam and how to reclaim unity. I keep coming back to trying to fully understanding how the Love Spell works.
Elvis Cstello - well he says it all. Check it out. What's so funny 'about peace, love and understanding.
