THOUGHTS 3597 TO 3600

MY THOUGHTS 3597
UNDERSTANDING VERSUS TOLERANCE: ‘UNDERSTANDING’ OTHER CULTURES, ETHNICITIES, AND FAITHS MEANS THAT YOU RECOGNIZE AND ACCEPT THEIR RIGHT TO BE DIFFERENT WITH NO ANIMOSITY TOWARDS THEM. YOU ARE ALSO WILLING TO EXCHANGE IDEAS WITH THEM. WHEN YOU ‘TOLERATE’ OTHER CULTURES, ETHNICITIES, AND FAITHS IT MEANS THAT YOU DO NOT LIKE THE DIFFERENCES BUT WILL LIVE WITH THEM FOR THE TIME BEING. UNDERSTANDING DEMONSTRATES RESPECT FOR ‘OTHERS’ AND CAN CREATE HARMONIOUS RELATIONSHIPS. HOWEVER, TOLERATION DEMONSTRATES A RESENTMENT THAT CAN LEAD TO CONTEMPT, CAN LEAD TO SEGREGATION, AND CAN EVENTUALLY LEAD TO PHYSICAL CONFLICT. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 3598
RELATIONSHIPS: WHEN STARTING OR RE-EVALUATING A RELATIONSHIP, IT IS IMPORTANT FOR THE PARTNERS TO ACCEPT EACH OTHER’S PAST WITHOUT LIVING IN THOSE PASTS. THOSE PARTNERS CAME/ARE COMING TOGETHER BECAUSE OF THEIR PASTS. HOWEVER, PARTNERS SHOULD NOT ABUSE EACH OTHER BECAUSE OF THEIR PASTS. ANYONE WHO IS STILL LIVING IN HER/HIS PAST SHOULD NOT SEEK A NEW RELATIONSHIP UNTIL HE/SHE IS READY TO LIVE IN THE PRESENT WITHOUT THE GHOSTS OF HER/HIS PAST DOMINATING HIS/HER THOUGHTS.

MY THOUGHTS 3599
FAITH: IT IS IMPORTANT FOR EACH INDIVIDUAL TO GO INWARD AND DISCOVER WHAT HIS/HER FAITH REALLY MEANS TO HER HIM IN A MORAL CONTEXT. BE WARY OF POLITICIANS, ECONOMISTS, AND POWER SEEKERS WHO WANT TO USE YOUR FAITH AS A TOOL TO GAIN POWER OVER YOU AND YOUR THOUGHTS. EmilKoval©2012

MY THOUGHTS 3600
FAITH: YOU CANNOT BE INSULTED BY WHAT YOU DO NOT FEAR. THEREFORE, GOD CANNOT BE THREATENED BY HIS/HER CREATIONS. GOD DOES NOT NEED ANYONE TO PROTECT HER/HIS HONOR. ALL ONE NEEDS TO DO IS TO FOLLOW THE PRECEPTS OF ONES FAITH WITH RESPECT FOR ONE’S CREATOR AND FOR WHAT THE CREATOR HAS CREATED. IT IS THE CREATOR ALONE WHO MUST SEEK RETRIBUTION IF THERE IS NEED TO DO SO. IT IS NOT THE DUTY OF THE FAITHFUL TO SECOND GUESS THE CREATOR AND DESTROY THE CREATOR’S CREATIONS IN HIS/HER NAME.
