Shifting my perspective to "Love Wins" opens up my thinking. It raises my consciousness to a higher level. It gets me out of any narrow or fear-based thinking and finds solid ground. It helps me discover the positive intent.
The Supreme Court decision today seems to be doing this for us as a Nation. The court said Love Wins.
Many years ago I wanted to fire a lifeguard because she insisted on wearing a nose ring. In a random airplane conversation I shared this incredulous story with the guy next to me. I was hoping for support and a common battle cry! But, he challenged my thinking. He asked if I was generally a loving and merciful person. He challenged me to move to higher ground and see her simply as a person with a different viewpoint. Her nose ring didn't inflict harm on me. It didn't mean I had anything less or more. She kept lifeguarding. And I learned a good lesson.
