I don’t accept the idea that there are two sides to any issue. I think that the middle ground is to be found within most of us.
In the crack in the middle, where people on both sides absolutely refuse to see each other as evil, we rediscover the power of words to move us towards each other and away.
We simultaneously circle back to the necessity of virtue to hold us to a care with our words—the intention we bring to what we speak; the trustworthiness and generosity we impart to the spaces in which we share our lives.
The point of learning to speak together differently is learning to live together differently. It’s a dance of words with arts of living.
Oh, it’s so beautiful. Just as materials obviously carry histories of the animal or the technologies that made them, or where they came from in the earth, words also carry all of those histories.
There’s a reason certain words work, and it’s because of the histories they carry for us.

The Holy Grail of psychological power is your ability to flip your Inner Switch … to turn off your lower self and turn on your best possible self.
The key is to practice ... to build your emotional muscles. Repetition is the mother of mastery.
“Each smallest act of kindness, reverberates across
great distances and spans of time — affecting lives
unknown to the one who’s generous spirit, was the
source of this good echo.”
― Dean Koontz
