Mysteries to be unfolded
"Human beings are not issues to be fixed; they are mysteries to be unfolded."
I came across this quote last week. I can't remember the name of the person who wrote it, but it motivated me to write this post.
In this technological era it is easy to forget that human beings are not like computers. The intellect is not enough to understand them. Human beings have feelings and emotions. They are not iPads and iPhones. (Paradoxically, those who belittle other people because of their weaknesses are blind to their own foibles).
It is tempting to believe that a magic pill or something similar will "fix" their issues.
I love listening to people. When I do, I pay attention to every word they say. I don't ask too much. I just listen with an open attitude, providing support and reassurance. That's when people dare to expose their life stories.
That's when I encounter questions that have no answers.
Mi mind is focused on the energy of new projects.
I hope your mind is also brimming with energy. Have a good week.
