Sometimes we need to listen, we need to set aside "what we think we know" and really open our hearts, minds and ears to listening in order to truly understand something, the more we attach to our beliefs of what "we think we know" the less room we leave for understanding and new ways of thinking, living and experiencing. This is not just about far away issues or people and things that are not reflective in our day to day circumstances, this is for our reality that touches us deep within with every person or thing we just cant seem to stand to be around. Every time we push someone away because they "hit home" and expose emotions within us that we ourselves run from and do not take the time to explore and befriend. Every time we destroy a living creature because of fear or because we ourselves lack the understanding that they too have a right to exist and live and love just as we do.
So with every story comes an opportunity to listen without response or judgment, the idea here is, can we all find it in our hearts to truly feel and accept that our perception is so limited, that maybe just maybe, we ourselves have been creating the differences that we need to learn to look past in order to gain the understanding to live at peace with all that has been presented to us in this lifetime and its not someone else or something forcing us build these walls of misunderstanding. It is through our differences that we unite. ~Will "Story" Rivera
