Keep the stones in your pocket
If you ever wondered how I figure out what my message for the day is going to be I can tell you that many times it comes from one of you. Something you said, one of your posts, or a message you have sent triggers something inside of me that allows me to share with you on that particular day. This message was no exception.
When I look out into the world, I often question what has happened that we have become a society that is far quicker to judge each other rather than support and uplift. We seem to be able to find everything we can that is wrong with an individual, yet finding the good and recognizing it takes way too much effort. It’s as if we have become so perfect in our own minds that no one can even measure up to us. This is especially true in social media, where people can hide behind a screen and exert their wrath, often never even letting anyone know who they are.
The old adage about glass houses and stones reigns more true today than ever. Somehow we have lost the humility and humbleness that once defined us as a caring and compassionate society. Teachers will tell you children are getting more difficult to manage. Employers will tell you employees are getting more demanding while wanting to do less. It has become harder to get people together for the common good.
All is not doom and gloom. There still exists a compassionate population wanting to do good in the world and leave it a little better than we found it. People who care for each other and often for those that they don’t even know. Those who have the humility to know that we are all one people and none of us is perfect. We know that through our faults we become better persons and thereby set the example for others to do the same. I see it every day in this program.
When we learn to judge less, support more and have the love and compassion that defines a truly great generation, it is only then that subsequent generations follow suit. It is also why it is so important for us to set the example, keep those stones in our pocket and support and uplift each other, rather than tear each other down. That is what makes a great generation.
Have a great day and remember to be the reason someone smiles today.
