Monday, February 18, 2019 - Judging

I’m struggling with something today that I often confront - judging others and their situations. It’s such an easy thing to do, and it’s so ugly. In my heart I believe we really are all equal and intertwined to the deepest levels of science and spirit. In that light I have understanding for all people and situations, and I know that judgement is unjustified. We all are just making our way with the level of awareness of our situation we have attained so far in our lives. But in the moment my first inclination is to think bad thoughts and say unkind things about those who think, say, and act differently than me, not to mention those who look different than me. When I find myself with these thoughts of judging others I try to rise above the moment and up into my belief that we will all one day understand how intertwined we all are down to minutest bits of science and spirit. It doesn’t have to be this way. I just have to remember my beliefs.

What have I been up to? 

Last Saturday night at Walter's Brewery was loads of fun! When I arrived there were only about 3 people in the place, and I was worried it would be a slow night, but friends soon flocked in and made it great. Thank you, friends! I’ll be back March 29th.

What’s up this week? 

Sunday I’m back at Cuchara Chapel at 10:00 am to hear Eileen's great message and play some tunes. It is a real pleasure to get to participate in these services with the people of the Cuchara Valley. If you’re up for a drive come on out to see the valley in the snow and get a little spiritual recharge.

That’s it for this week. I’ve been back in writing mode a bit of late. I know that many of you have said I should be writing songs in the vein of what I write in these mailers. I’m trying to do just that! More on that as I move along. From today's thoughts, how about a song called “Science and Spirit” or something to that effect? 

Best, 

Tom
