This day brings a Moon of tolerance. Tolerance is treating others the way we want to be treated. It is accepting our differences. Look at the trees in the forest. Do you see that some are big and tall while others are small, and that some are straight while others are crooked? People are like trees; you cannot expect them all to be the same. Accepting that people are different and looking for the positive in them helps us build an attitude of tolerance. An important part of developing a more tolerant outlook is learning to appreciate and value difference. People who value difference and diversity are generally more tolerant of others, and are less stressed by ambiguity and uncertainty. Intolerance can effectively narrow down and simplify an ever-changing world, making it easier to comprehend because it ignores the variety and complexity. Time always passes, and how we feel during that time is of our own making. We can choose to become patient and tolerant, or pay the consequences. Learning to be tolerant and respectful of others is key to being successful in life.
“We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools” ― Martin Luther King Jr.
