Losing Our Patience - An Epidemic

Being in an emergency situation since Friday, June 29, 2012 has shown me more and more that there are two very distinctive personalities co-existing in this now time. One “type” is aware of others, shows respect, an attitude of co-operation and expresses gratitude for things big and small. Well, the other – doesn’t. You may consider this a judgment call, but I consider it simple observation. To see people recklessly drive through intersections, cut people off, try to hit pedestrians because they have a clear shot across the street is both dismaying and astonishing. To hear politicians and regular folk alike want to ensure that there are people who die because of lack of health insurance, that families should go bankrupt paying hospital bills shows a lack of basic human compassion. I want to say it is a 50/50 split but really, it is more like a 60/40 split. Sixty percent of people are actually civilized and operate from the heart. The other forty percent have no hearts and it appears no brains either! Just saying that you are what you DO! Not what you say, not what you say you will do, not even what you THINK you will do. YOUR ACTIONS Matter. Make them count! Neale Donald Walsch On this day of your life, Michelle, I believe God wants you to know... ...that when you pray for anyone, you tend to modify your personal attitude toward them. Norman Vincent Peale said that, and he touched on something truly profound. If someone is vexing you right now, say a prayer for that person. Send them all of your best energies. Nothing changes the environment like one person deciding to love another, no matter what. http://www.nealedonaldwalsch.com Thanks for reading! Michelle
