Believing what you think can sometimes lead you astray. Realizing you can never see the complete picture and acting from this realization helps to discern more wisely.
If you had this incomplete information about three candidates running for office, who would you pick?
Candidate A – Associates with crooked politicians, and consults with astrologists. He’s had two Mistresses. He also chain smokes and drinks 8 to 10 martinis a day.
Candidate B – Was kicked out of office twice, sleeps until noon, used opium in college and drinks a quart of whiskey every evening.
Candidate C – Is a decorated war hero. He’s a vegetarian, doesn’t smoke, drinks an occasional beer and never cheated on his wife.
Seems like an easy choice, right?
Candidate A: Franklin D. Roosevelt.
Candidate B: Winston Churchill.
Candidate C: Adolph Hitler.
Even when we’re 100% sure we’re right, it’s quite possible we’re not.
Be light with your judgments and passionate with gratitude.
