The tragic and senseless terror attacks in Brussels urges us to let go of the need to be right and embrace the possibilities inherent in deep listening and deep seeing ... of looking into the eyes of our so called ‘enemy’ and recognizing even the tiniest smidgen of shared humanity upon which can be built foundations for a New World.
The world as it stands today is challenged by many opposing forces. We feel them both personally and collectively, pushing against our own will, raising difficult questions, triggering issues we would rather evade ad infinitum.
How we manage our own inner conflicts largely dictates how we manage external ones. If we struggle with our own anger or hatred, telling ourselves we shouldn’t feel this way, we will struggle to respond effectively to the anger of others.
gentle acceptance, compassion and understanding inform our attitude and shape our inner and outer relationships.
Time to encourage each other and ourselves.
