Inspiration: To allow everyone the freedom to express who they are without judgements.
As I was taking the crosstown bus this am, I noticed an elderly woman feeding the birds right inside Central Park. She was surrounded by them. In the background behind me I heard a few people make comments about this woman. They were not kind. Comments such as "She must be mentally ill to be doing that" or " How can she stand there in the middle of all those dirty birds?" There was a tone in each of these voices I heard. Like they knew better.
Could it be there was a reason the woman was feeding these birds? Aside from the obvious, they need to be feed, maybe it gave her joy. A peacefulness of giving to them with her heart. What her state of mind may or may not be is not any one's business.
The reason I share this with all of you is because we never really know what is going on. We are quick to assume, usually the worst in a situation. The saying "If you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything" holds true. It is a leakage of our energy. By judging another we ultimately have judgement about ourselves. When we let go of the need to think or behave in a certain way, life becomes more easeful.
So next time you see or hear something that you may not resonate with, simply bless those situations and move on.......
Have a very "peaceful" day.
