before the doctrine.

before anyone was ever an adult, they were someone’s innocent lovable bouncing baby. adults are then babies that grew up being indoctrinated with social and human construct. someone doted on the homeless guy on the street corner when he was a baby. the murderer was an innocent bouncing baby before they became the criminal they are now. the penniless barefoot woman, was just another innocent beautiful baby before being taught into understanding that they were born into poverty. we’re not wholly sullied as adults. we might forget how it felt to be an innocent child and bury the memory deep within us, however, that fact is still lodged in us. the wisdom of yourself as a child is within, whether you seek to be in touch with it or not. each and every person you lay your eyes on, was born free of all stigmas and was just as innocent as they were lovable. acknowledging that there’s still this perfect and unsullied lineage of every soul, because we were all born that way, can help you develop some compassion for every person you come across, and not judge them for whom they have become or what the world turned them into.

be a witness.

when I see beauty (grace) everywhere and feel overcome with a surge of gratitude for being a witness to it, I am reminded that each soul on earth was brought here to bear witness. being here to witness man’s greed and evil (as it is inflicted upon you) is such a heavy task. when something bad happens to you, try with your might to be a witness, instead of ingesting the hurt and compartmentalizing it within your heart. remove yourself from it and only bear witness. try a birds-eye view and step out of time, and be a witness looking in. you’ll gain a better perspective all the time.

assume nothing.

disagreements between friends, family and strangers mostly happen because of assumptions. assume nothing. accept what they tell or show you and meet people where they are, and don’t try to think for the other person, whether it is good thoughts or bad ones, chances are you will get it wrong. you will never be in their skin, no matter how much you think you know them. only think of your position and voice it. do not try to think for someone else, or make excuses for them or vilify them in your thoughts. assume nothing at all. you will be less fearful, less judgmental, will stop self-sabotage and will be more open-minded.
