An excerpt from the LJCC weekly E-Newsletter

Our personal affirmation for this topic is this: I am thoughtful, considerate and calm in dealing with others.

Thoughtful means I think carefully about how I interact with others.

Considerate means I consider (un)intended consequences of my actions.

Calm means that I do not create unnecessary damage or pain in how I act.

Gentleness is a delivery system. It is intended to avoid damage.

We all see people do things harshly when they should be gentle. It has the effect of escalating tension, stress, distrust, anger and fear.

An African proverb says that “When the elephants fight the grass suffers.”

Why do we do this?

If we can learn to link passion with gentleness we will bless the world.
