heart and mind

hello world.
hello mum.
hello to me in a year that may reread this to remember and relearn.

life lesson no. 54 that beat through my vessels lately:
a dear friend taught me,
you can understand and sympathize with anyone
if you just look into their heart and mind
when you try to see the root as to why they do what they do, say what they say
even the worst of criminals and people that have walked this Earth
most were likely not purely evil and filled with hatred, but they were messed up, something happened in their life that gives reason to why they are what they are, or perhaps they really thought that what they were doing was for a good cause

when you seek first to understand, then to be understood (Covey for you friends)
thats the only way to be truly nonjudgmental
this can prevent and dissolve so many of the disputes, anger, and pain amongst humans

boy this isnt always easy to do
especially when others punch our hearts
and maybe this will take me a lifetime to learn
but i sure hope i can remember it often
