conceptual oyster

the world is my oyster…living in random oyster beds, oceans and marshes worldwide, currently:, New Zealand

Dali Lama

Too often we spend our time and energy judging others for their faults or for what they are not giving us. We do this without ever looking at ourselves, our own faults, or what others may be needing from us. We call it spoiled, selfish, or simply conceited.

My guess however, is that even the best of us, our personal friends whom we admire, those leaders of faith, and our public leaders…haven’t they once put self indulgent thoughts at the forefront of their giving minds and bodies?

We walk through this world keenly focused on our own pain and disappointments without ever considering those burdens that we have placed on others.
