Come to the calm of a well functioning brain.
I just found Greater Good Magazine on line. There are many different areas to explore on this website.
One of the articles that I read was about speaking up when someone was being offensive. I know that I have a hard time with this. I was at a training recently and one of my fellow trainees was talking about going to Thailand. Her main comment was that all there was was Buddha every where. With other comments around this subject that were in appropriate. I wish that I would have spoken out. I was in a group of conservative people. I do not know if I would have been supported with a comment.
I want to practice different ways of connecting with people, where what I say does not put them down or offend. But I do need people to understand that we need to accept different ways of being a human that do not always fit my circle of understanding.
When we have a closed way of looking at things, we create more fear around us. How can we grow to understand other ways of living. Fear is driving so much of our relationships, we are willing to fight for our side without considering how ours are. I hope that I can not let fear guide my interventions in the future and not react out of anger.
