Attitudes and Gratitude

This morning while thinking about the depth of my gratitude for my family and Family of friends, those who share in every aspect of my life and Purpose, my mind wandered into the open field of Understanding. Once again it was a refreshing time to pause and contemplate how in this domain of the heart the wildflowers of acceptance to be perennials.

gratitudeNot surprisingly, this contemplative moment led to reconsidering the notion of tolerance. With it came the memories of the times when a smiling face masked a closed mind; when fancy clothes and jewels were used to hide a walled and padlocked heart; and when a supposedly relaxed posture, arms simply tucked behind one’s back, was revealed to be a pose that hid clenched fists.

Voltaire, one of my favourite philosphers and advocates of freedom, asked “What is tolerance?” And them immediately answered his own question, saying “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.

Today may we forgive ourselves, and then ask another for forgiveness. In doing so we will open the Flow of gratitude that leads to understanding and true acceptance, the Source of actions that lead to positive change.
