Tolerance is only a starting point.
we must move beyond tolerance to understanding,
from understanding to appreciation and
from appreciation to love.
Am I willing to move beyond mere tolerance?
The wayfarer in this Valley seeth
in the fashionings of the True One
nothing save clear providence.
...and at every moment saith:
"No defect canst thou see in the creation of the God of Mercy:
Repeat the gaze: Seest thou a single flaw?"
Am I grateful for the challenges of life that have helped me to learn more,
to appreciate more,
to love more?
