For your consideration…..

We are asked to consider this. If our first reaction to what someone is saying is to defend ourselves or to think that they are bad, misguided, stupid etc., then we need to look at ourselves.

If we are confident in our authentic truth, we do not need to judge. We can stand and listen. Our truth is not threatened. We are not threatened. We can calmly and quietly state it. We do not need to argue about it.

All around us we see truth being challenged ie; college campuses, Congress, TV, social media. It is the most slippery of slopes when we cannot respectfully and calmly listen to others. How else do we learn and form our own truth if not through our experience and listening to the experience of others.

On the other hand if we cannot stand and listen to what others feel the need to say, if we feel challenged and defensive, then we need to consider that perhaps we need to reconsider our truth and its validity.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.
