The wise understand that those who engage in unethical or harmful behavior, do so out of deep ignorance. They don’t understand that in hurting others, they harm themselves. We breathe the same air. Like leaves on a tree, we’re all sustained and animated by the same energetic force and everything we do affects everything else, including us. This form of ignorance keeps us rooted in intolerance, hatred and the desire to punish those who don’t conform. The remedy is to model compassion, understanding, healthy boundaries and most of all…

Love.
