Frances "Fanny" Wright (1795-1852) Scottish-American writer, lecturer, social reformer

[...] What’s wrong with judgment? Don’t we need judgment to figure out right from wrong? To take personal responsibility for our mistakes?

It’s useful here to draw a distinction between judgment and discriminating wisdom. Discriminating wisdom recognizes when things are harmful or unjust, but also recognizes the causes and conditions that lead to situations of harm or injustice in the first place. When wrongdoers are treated with compassion rather than harsh condemnation, cycles of conflict and suffering can be broken.

Imagine hearing a story about a young man who robs a bank and shoots a teller in the arm as she tries to call for help. At first you might make a ruthless judgment of the man—he’s a monster and should be locked in jail for eternity. End of story. But then, you learn more about the criminal’s background and history. His parents were drug addicts. By eleven he was out on the streets in a neighborhood where he had to fight and steal to survive. He tried to get a job and go stra

Transitions


If you could talk to an unborn #baby still in the womb, you might say,

We are so looking forward to meeting you! Your whole existence up to now has been to prepare you for the world you are about to enter. Things you can't even understand yet, Lights, colors, language, touch, breathing air, taste and smell. These things are all amazing and wonderful! We love you so much already and can't wait until we can hold you!

The baby might say,

Thanks, but no thanks! I'm quite comfortable right where I am, floating here and turning somersaults. I don't want anything to change! I'm glad you love me, whatever that means (but it sounds nice), but please, don't change anything. I like my world, just the way it is.

But #birth is inevitable. Squeezing, pain, noise, bright lights, cold air, that first breath, voices and sights. But wonderful!

Now I hear loved ones and angels,... Show more...
