Today's gloomy weather has me in reflection. Look at how we judge. We judge each other for our body shape and size, our faith or lack there of, and our level of income and education. We even judge each other for political preferences and music. I know I judge a lot. I try my best to be open minded, but I too get caught up in judgement. Why? I really don't know.
I know that when I'm judging another it's because I'm afraid of being hurt again; of being lied to or abused. I justify my thought process, especially in the dating world, with the hopes of finding myself in other. The irony is that everyone I bring into my circle is just a reflection of me.
Each person I bring into my life has something of value to offer-whether the lesson is painful or blissful. A negative plus a positive leaves us with zero. Zero is the absence of value. The great Mayans wanted us to contemplate what zero means in a world full of infinite value and possibility. Starting today, I'm going to work on taking everyone at a zero value and let my experiences with them build into something positive or negative, in order to guide me closer to my destiny. I recommend letting your heart shatter, so that there is more space for love.
