We evaluate ourselves and each other in a constant stream of judgement. How or why this became useful is one of the great mysteries of time. The ultimate victim in this cycle is our own self-esteem. When you hold another up as a prime exemplar, it notches down our own understanding of ourselves. May we find new modes of thinking, that include gratitude and aspiration without so much judgement and valuation. We are all worthy. And we all occasionally do not achieve our highest visions, but that simply means we have more living to do, and what a good thing that is. For a clear conscience we give thanks. Blessed Be, and Amen.
