Wow! It is refreshing to as soon as all over again be reminded that folks, in their incredibly essence, are a reflection of the divine character. No make any difference what the media inform us, folks are by mother nature compassionate, loving, seekers of peace and justice, holy, and forgiving.
It has been my expertise of 30 many years as a trainer, and twenty many years as a psychologist, that in my seventy-just one years of daily life, have by no means fulfilled a individual who was purely egocentric or evil. Most individuals want absolutely nothing a lot more than to dwell just, loving, and tranquil life. I have met a great deal of people who created my lifestyle improved and I’m so grateful to have fulfilled them.
I consider of my mother and father and the household I grew up in, my present spouse and children, the a lot of medical practitioners and nurses who carried out surgical treatment or approved medicine, the various academics, professors, coaches and ministers who listened and guided me. I feel of the condition police officer who saved me and my family’s existence. I think of the many bosses, supervisors, principals and fellow lecturers who enabled me to do superior perform. I feel of the many students and patients who invited me to wander with them, mutually supporting each individual other. I believe of looking and fishing friends and great periods. I consider of the quite a few Christians, agnostics, atheist, folks of other faiths, races, and sexual orientation who dwell loving and compassionate lives.
I consider of my brothers and sisters and spouse, kids and grandchildren, my extended loved ones and my in-rules. I imagine of the many buddies who really like me and that I love. I am overwhelmed by really like from all directions.
I have been blessed to be in a position to see God in all of them. Granted, some people today do lousy issues, but that is not who they as folks are. Undesirable actions is not regular. Whether completed since of psychological ailment, ignorance, impulsivity, past trauma, cultural concerns, inadequate education, or terrible possibilities, terrible behavior is not regular.
In essence, we are variety, compassionate, enthusiasts, seekers of peace and justice, holy, sacred, developed in God’s divine nature. Our human mother nature is a mirror of the divine mother nature. At minimum that has been my practical experience.
