When we are tolerant toward others, at another time tolerance will be shown toward us. No one is perfect all the time and we can lead a much happier life with tolerance flowing both ways. Practicing tolerance paves the way for a happy life from here on out. What we set in motion stays in motion. Isn't it better to accept everyone for who they are at this moment than to try to change them into our vision for them? We are one family of humanity; rather than concentrating on superfulous differences, let's enjoy the qualities we all share as humans, and make this planet a beautiful garden of caring and consideration for all.
These verses promoting tolerance are for reflection, meditation in quiet moments.
May we remember
In our humanity
We are part of a world family.
While remaining peaceful.
Recognizing that each
Has the right
To determine their reality.
Allowing us to remain calm
When we think others should act differently.
Tolerance breeding happiness
As we take tender insights
Blossoming in peace, joy, happiness, love.
Acceptance in love by practicing love.
