Just some thoughts...

Every day, as I write Poetiquejustis, I pray it will be a blessing to someone.
Today, I hope it is you.

Bending "The Rule"

The Golden Rule is two-edged sword.
If some of us treated others as we treat ourselves
we would be jailed.
Richard Paul Evans
The Mistletoe Promise

Kindness begins at home

in your heart

You cannot know how to talk to others

If you do not know how to speak
to yourself

You do not know how to appreciate others

If you do now know how to appreciate yourself

You cannot get a meal from an empty cupboard

and you cannot get compassion

from an empty heart
 Fill up your heart with self- kindness

so you have enough to share.

Until you are good to you
you will have no odea
how to be good
to others
and that's poetiquejustis

 Love your neighbor as yourself.
Matthew 22:39
