Would You Rather Be Right or Kind

Would You Rather Be Right or Kind

So many people appear to have a tremendous need to be right..they would rather be right than kind. There is such power at times in just letting things be and not attempting to argue or make a point. Someone wise once said that “I do not need to justify, explain, or defend”. It seems that people bring unresolved hurt issues to relationships. Some call this our “Past Woundology.” We have all been wounded, disappointed and sadly surprised along the way.

I have lived life long enough to realize that the people that patted me on my back and told me how special I was (though they were the easiest to deal with) weren’t necessarily defined as my most significant teachers. My greatest teachers have been the ones that didn’t get me, validate me or adore me. Those are the people that made me HAVE TO SEE that I could know these attributes within myself.

Ask yourself, do I constantly feel that I have to be right or can I feel TRUE empowerment by walking away or commenting later or better yet…not making a comment at all?

The next time the car behind you waves his fist out the window…..wave!

Siddhartha did not wake up being shielded to real, authentic life as a human being. He saw what was real to others and was guided to understand the way of suffering and of peace because he could sit in both realities. Every day we hear stories that are beyond shocking and within many of us…

What is modern day mysticism?

“Mysticism is an immediate, direct, intuitive knowledge of God or of ultimate reality attained through personal experience. Wide variations are found in both the form and the intensity of mystical experience; however, it is not dependent on the form, but solely on the quality of life that follows the experience. The mystical life is characterized…
