07/28 for today

“that is the happiest conversation where there is no competition, no vanity, but a calm, quiet interchange of sentiments”

finally understanding that identifying with others is a key piece of how i find peace of mind and acceptance. when i compare myself, i most often fall short or stand in judgement of the perceived failings of others, and at the same time, by separating myself, i create further loneliness and misery. sharing common ground creates camaraderie and connection and that in turn feeds the intangible needs of my soul. i am not perfect at this, and fail at it completely some days, some moments, but when i catch this negative aspect of myself and am able to step back then i can observe the situation honestly and in that moment is when i find the safety and security of common ground.

for today, i understand that identifying is a safe perspective, taking away the reaction of judgement and fear. for today, i live a life of action not reaction, a life of humility not humiliation, a life of observation not judgement, a life of love not fear.
