It opens up a bit of compassion to think of the people who are the hardest to like as needing the most love.

 

 

Love is unconditional positive regard.

Its attributes are recognition, acceptance, understanding, and response.

 

 

Certainty means you are certain.

Not that you are right.

 

 

Spiritual maturity is earned. No shortcuts. You have to live your way into greater patience, vulnerability, compassion, and awareness that our disconnection from others is our own doing.

 

 

Easy solutions to complex problems are most assuredly wrong.

 

 

As long as you are alive, there are infinite possibilities.

That never ceases to give me hope.

 

 

One rabbi asks another for a blessing.

 

“May you have many problems.”

“What kind of blessing is that!? May I have many problems?!”

“Well, when you have only one problem, something serious is wrong. When you have many problems, it’s that the dishwasher is leaking, the dog has fleas, the taxes need to be done, etc.”

“May we all have many problems.”

“Amen.”

 

 

Sometimes, when there is no right answer, it means there is also no wrong answer.
