It's easy to post an opinion or a judgment out there on social media because nobody sits across from you and looks you in the eyes. It may get rid of pent up anger or fear by throwing something out into cyberland. But it doesn't open a real dialogue.
A true dialogue, and true healing, happens when we sit across from each other and see each other's humanness, our commonalities, when we share our dreams, whishes, and desires, but also our vulnerabilities, feelings, and emotions.
We are all entitled to our own opinions, and we don't have to agree with each other's views. But discussing face-to-face how we feel, putting our fears out on the table, acknowledging our emotions, opens the doors to a dialogue, to listening, to respecting each other's thinking, to finding out that we usually have more commonalities than differences.
Listening deeply opens up a space. Open the door to peace and dialogue - it begins in your own heart.
