The world does not need my opinion

The world does not need my view about everything all the time, in fact, I don’t need my view about everything all the time either. It’s just constant mental noise.

It’s OK not to have a view at all.

It’s a lot more peaceful for others and for me if I am content with just being and observing.

When we observe we listen and hear the other person and the beautiful world around us.

Starts with me

Hate…starts with me
Anger…starts with me
Fear…starts with me
Jealousy…starts with me
Judgement…starts with me
Not the other

Kindness…starts with me
Love…starts with me
Empathy…starts with me
Compassion…starts with me
Joy…starts with me
Not the other

I can love first
I can understand first
I can listen first
I can hug first
I can share my light first
It starts with me
Not the other
