Appreciate uniqueness in others

“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree,

it will live its whole life believing it is stupid.”

    Thank you Evan – i must laugh about the picture – sweet and funny.

    Yes, thats wonderful that everybody is a genius, namely Gods genius, expressing divine intelligence and wisdom. And we learn in Christian Science that God gave everybody individually there special qualities, with which all people bless each other, when all these qualities come together. Thats God`s harmonious kingdom.

    judgement of others and oneself is one of most pointless things suggested to us by mortal mind.

    Thanks Evan and Nadine, this is such a trap, why would I think that anybody who doesn’t think or do things the same way I do is not doing things right?? I have to constantly remind myself not to judge others and see the uniqueness of everyone

    Great point Evan! God doesn’t make trash. Every idea of God reflects intelligence. Just because we can not see it from a limited viewpoint does not mean it is not there. The fun challenge is being able to find this in others.
    Nadine, I do not believe Evan is suggesting to not judge with this statement. I have found it is very important to keep God’s man in thought so I can compare this with each person I encounter and if they do not live up to this model, to be alert. In addition, it allows me an opportunity to disarm evil by seeing God’s man as separate from a mortal manifesting evil. Whatever lie that person is believing to make them act as something less than God’s man will be disproved because God/Truth/Love is all powerful. And, I need to do this daily with myself to make sure I am not tricked into believing I should be anything other than God’s man. Righteous judgement is important.

      Thank you Kirsten… A very enlightened approach
      unfortunately few subscribe to.

      The evidence
      Is here:
      The one thing
      To do
      Which places
      The most
      Valuable key
      Into one’s mind
      and heart,
      The only Key
      That will unlock
      The Door of
      Spiritual
      Understanding:

      A humble
      Recognition
      And affirmation of
      God as the
      Only Source.

      This may be the Hardest thing to do,
      But it is also the most
      Simple, bringing
      peace and comfort,
      Illumination, light,
      Meekness of Thought–
      Unfolding a
      loving heart,
      Renewal of body,
      mind, and spirit
      In the pure waters
      Of God ‘s love.

      This is the Practice of
      The Presence
      of God–
      Turning to
      The only true
      and Divine Source
      For all of our
      Needs and instruction:
      Where Personal life
      Does not exist.

    To one he gave 10 talents, to another 5, but to all he gave the talent to love if only we accept it.

    Finally… relief….
    Being a rock at the bottom of a pond
    I can now live in peace
    not knowing how to swim…
    People used to tell me,
    ‘ Time to sink or swim’
    This always left me feeling
    inadequate….
    Now knowing we shall
    leave not one stone unturned,
    I know my day shall come,
    Skipping across the top
    of the pond as God’s loving
    hand reveals all potential
    in all

    I shall be reflecting on this all day. What do we love about our friends and family members? I try to always look for the good, in others. When we focus on the good the bad is softened and often just disappears. What do we cherish about each friend? What do we value? We are known by the friends we have. We love our friends and allow them to be who they are. We don’t expect them to run through hoops! We value their God like nature. Love is reflected in Love.
