What do You see in the Mirror?

A loving person lives in a loving world. A hostile person lives in a hostile world. Everyone you meet is your mirror. Ken Keyes Jr.

So today was an incredibly busy day, and I wasn’t going to write a blog post to go with this quote, but then, I received an email full of hate and evilness directed at a particular religious group.  I realize that today is a particularly difficult day for a lot of people in the United States, and I get why.  But to read the words I read, directed at an entire group of people because of the acts of a few struck a very negative chord in me.  I was prepared to rant and rave – okay I did express my opinion, but I didn’t rant or rave.  A few people in the email group agreed with my opinion, and a few disagreed.  No big deal, that’s what this world is about, agreeing and disagreeing.  As is wont to happen, the arguments grew a little bit heated and tempers flared.  I was tempted to just ignore it, but then I remembered the Daily Positive Thought for today.  I realized that what I experienced today on that email list was this quote exactly.  Here was a person so consumed with hate, ignorance and fear that they now lived in a world of their own making; a world of hate, ignorance and fear.

There are people that I like and people that I don’t.  That’s human nature, but today thanks in part to this quote and to an email from someone, I’ve learned the difference between living in a world of hate and a world of love.  I’m choosing to look in to my own personal mirror and see a person who lives in a world of love.
