Appreciation
Tolerance is only a starting point.
we must move beyond tolerance to understanding,
from understanding to appreciation and
from appreciation to love.

Tolerance

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?
