Examine Everything

We enjoy following the crowd and fitting in, but sometimes other people’s beliefs are not always healthy or accurate. Until you have looked at a situation at several different angles using multiple lenses, you really cannot fully understand an idea or concept.

Educating oneself is part of our purpose in life, as is having the ability to empathize with other people. Sometimes people think of empathy as having a “bleeding heart” or enabling others’ bad behaviors. On the contrary, the empathetic person is able to see the “roots” of social problems and propose ideas that may heal their “blight.” Isn’t that what our world needs these days – healing? When you look at your world through the eyes of others as a “scholar,” you will find wisdom and compassion for all people, regardless of their personal views and opinions.
