Reflection of the Day

While sitting in an Insurance Office waiting my turn my mind took a thoughtful turn. It's not unusual for the mind to be set adrift within an unpleasant environment.

Anyhow, while sitting there I was thinking about a woman at work who is a refuge from Iraq and wondering if she had any animosity toward me based on my coming from one of the rich nations involved in the destruction of her culture and theivery of her nations resources under the guise of freedom.

I thought about this and thought if I can be responsible for the actions of a few powerful and rich individuals who have manipulated a population for their own selfish interests.

What came to mind was some words in a direct and clear manner. " One may be comdemned in the eyes of man while at the same time being blessed in the eyes of God."

One answer is - Follow your Heart and you will not be false to any person or your God

Would it be the ultimate of snobbishness to say, "Bless you"? Or we are all God. lol.

Hello Michael:

I am in complete agreement with your comment. Perhaps I could have used the word Good for God and to add, I believe that the heart is the seat of Good or God. Very clever replying with One answer is : This is your answer coming from your own Goodness and revealing that you have a tolerance for the beliefs of others.

Thanks for your insight. Be well and Good bless.

Hello Michael D:

Or, shall I address your alias name, Anononymous.

Well if we are all God according to your question, then it would be quite OK to say bless you.

Thanks for your comment. Always nice to hear from you.
