What would I say, you ask, to give them peace and comfort?
How can you reach them when they only hear themselves?
What words would I use to give the understanding?
Stop dead in your tracks
You’re all following the wrong path
The truth is to seek love and beauty
And it is everywhere
All around you
Open your eyes to this incredible place
And all of your blessings
We are all part of a whole
You are one with the neighbor behind you who barely raises his hand or nods his head
He comes from a place of fear
And your reaction to him is also from fear
Instead try love
He is not so different from you
He’s had trials and tribulations that have gotten him here
As you have walked roads that were long and at times lost your way
Open your hearts to one another
It’s really no so hard to do
Understand his angst
Forgive his prejudice
Send him love and be ready to catch the love that comes back a hundred fold
For there is only love or fear
Dare you judge another till you’ve walked in his shoes
Open your heart as wide as can be
And make it larger until you can’t see what was not there in the beginning
If you can take love and make it larger
If you can choose love even when you are afraid
If you can be love in every single instance
You will live in love
And all blessings will be yours

Thank you Kimberly! And thanks for adding…because even though I wrote this…I, too, need reminders. Many blessings! 🙂
