JUST FOR TODAY … A Lesson in Empathy

empathyOur lives intersect with others all day, everyday. Sometimes we know these other lives well; frequently, though, the points of connection are brief and transient. Who are these people? How might they tell their own stories? What thoughts preoccupy their minds? What joys and troubles are coursing through their feelings?

“Could a greater miracle take place than for us to look through each other’s eyes for an instant?”  ~ Henry David Thoreau

If we could catch a glimpse of others’ stories … If you could stand in someone else’s shoes … hear what they hear … see what they see … feel what they feel … would YOU treat them differently?

All Are One … Live in Peace and Aloha
