we hear what we want to hear….

I read on “Daily Kabbalah Tune-up” a great reflection…

When we need to speak a truth, that would otherwise be difficult to relay, it is important to approach it with an open heart..not just your mouth.

When we need to hear a difficult truth, it is important to have an open heart, and ears….and close our mouths.

could you do this?

When London England was receiving unrelenting bomb attacks in WWII, the British officials came up with a slogan and poster campaign to remind their citizens of their duty…

Can you imagine walking past burned out homes and dead bodies all the while being instructed to Keep Calm and Carry On?

  I like the simplicity of this slogan and remind myself of this when I am feeling particularly hurried or stressed.  Then a wave of humility washes over me when I compare my slight duress against those that came before me.
