Morning thoughts

Having my morning mediation interrupted by the sounds of vomiting coming from my living room was definitely not how I wanted to begin my Saturday! But it is what it is! When you love others (and animals), you take care of them and without question or conditions. Often, we place limits on our love and require the opposite party to be seemingly perfect in our eyes. I am not perfect and realize that others are not either; if we allowed and accepted such imperfections, life would be easier. People judge others: whether on looks, status, job, money, illness, etc. and fail to see true inner beauty. My cat has freckles and is fat; he is ADORABLE! Why don’t we view people the same way? He just sleeps and poops; he is perfect (he smells like syrup, too).
If we accepted individuals as they are, flaws and all, humanity would be the better for it. You may think me delusional, with my head in the clouds. I am fully aware of mayhem such as massacres, terrorism, political strife, murder, rape, etc. Trust that I have been privy to chaos in my life. This is primarily done under the guise of hate, fear, and resentments; meeting hate with hate only creates more. Rather than inflaming a situation, it can be met with love and compassion. I will not hate others for their flaws and misdeeds, but love my fellows unconditionally. The world could use it.
