Daily Meditation:
With greater knowledge and understanding of other people, their cultures, their societies, their viewpoints and varied ways of life, the more we are likely to feel empathy and compassion for them. We will be more likely to put  ourselves in other people’s shoes and be better able to see things from differing points of view when we educate ourselves and acquire more knowledge and understanding of other lifestyles and belief systems. When we become familiar with the unfamiliar or the previously unknown, it is less likely that we will judge or reject those who behave, live, think and believe differently than we do.  Take the time today to gather information and learn about new and different ideas, cultures, religions and belief systems so that you will be able to treat others with more understanding, acceptance, and compassion.  
Body: 
Educate yourself by opening up to new ideas and new viewpoints.  
Heart: 
Let your heart believe that others’ thoughts, ideas, and beliefs are as important to them as yours are to you.  
Mind: 
Knowledge leads to understanding and compassion and can erase negative or judgmental attitudes. 
Soul: 
Once we understand new and different points of view and belief systems, our souls will experience greater acceptance of others and have greater compassion for our fellows.

This is true. We often fear what we don't understand and sometimes hate what we fear... I believe that is one reason so many people don't like snakes. When we take the time to educate ourselves about those things we don't understand we are better able to accept and have empathy for them.. Thanks, Lori

    Our unique nature as human and spiritual beings spans four worlds: the 
    physical--our bodies; the emotional--our hearts; the intellectual--our minds;
    and the spiritual--our souls.
    I believe we have within each of us a spark of the Divine Spirit.

    I hope my words will give comfort, guidance, and clarity in your quest to heal and grow into your happiest, healthiest, and best selves. 

    I hope that you connect with the Divine Spark within you and find meaning and purpose in your lives.

     I wish you peace in your day.
