Rigidity is prevented most of the time as love and compassion mesh us into tolerant human beings. —Kaethe S. Crawford—
Looking outward with love, offering it freely to our friends and family, makes fluid, flowing, and fertile our existence. Each expression of love engenders more love, keeping tender our ties to one another, encouraging more ties.
The more flexible our lives, the more easily we’ll be attracted to an unexpected opportunity. And flexibility is fostered by a
loving posture. As we approach the world, so it greets us. We are not mere recipients of life’s trials and tribulations. We find
what our eyes are wanting to see. When our focus is rigid and narrow, so are our opportunities.
The Steps are leading us to be freer with our love, more tolerant in our expectations. The level of our compassion, fully felt and fully expressed, is the measure of our emotional health. Rigid attitudes, rigid behavior, rigid expectations of others recede as the level of our emotional health rises. Our approach to life changes and so do the results we meet.
I will love others. It’s my only assignment in life, and it guarantees the security I crave.
