Wonderful thoughts to keep under our wings when we feel a tinge of resistance.
Years ago one of my favorite magazines that I subscribed to at school was Teaching Tolerance. It really made my day when I saw it lying in my box.
Sounds like a wonderful magazine….it can be such a challenge to neutralize resistance or intolerance.
Teaching Tolerance – what a great name for a magazine. Does this magazine still exist? How successful was it overall? Do you know of any places where TOLERANCE is being taught?
I don’t know about that magazine. Maybe Georgette will be back and can answer that.
A few other posts or websites that support developing and living with tolerance.
Flying on the Wings of Wisdom and Compassion (lots about “tolerance” in there, including links) https://pocketperspectives.wordpress.com/2012/07/24/flying-on-the-wings-of-wisdom-and-compassion-just-like-myself/
Fred Luskin, from Stanford Forgiveness Project, does inspirational work with
“forgiveness” … which includes “tolerance”…. http://olympiaforgivenessproject.blogspot.com/

Thank you for this. Your blog is very stimulating. It encourages reflecting on these issues. Anyway, thanks for all the links.
A simple but very inspirational post, thank you.
You’re welcome…I’m happy to share. I have the last image, as a suncatcher, in several windows of our home…a helpful reminder for myself. I’m noticing some welcome changes, as I become more aware and repeatedly, and kindly, shift back into those more positive qualities on that image. (photo of the suncatcher in the window… http://reflectionsfromafriend.wordpress.com/2013/03/02/increasing-flexibility-within-ourselves-and-with-others/ )
I love how this progresses into a higher state of being, of awareness.
Isn’t that amazing, that such a thing happens? I didn’t realize at the time, but this post turns out/seems to be a “combination post”…maybe a “companion post” ???… with some ideas I posted on Reflections yesterday… the ideas from each combined in an interesting manner…with an unusual result!…a quiet mind…wow! unusual! http://reflectionsfromafriend.wordpress.com/2013/03/25/32513-to-wait-until-the-situation-is-more-settled-to-understand-it/
I’ve decided to call the sudden, unanticipated disappearance of “worries in the mind” and unexpected emergence of “a quiet mind” …. “poof” ….So apparently… “poof happens!” 😀
BUT, I don’t know HOW it happened… but it did.
What Joss said/wrote. 🙂
Joss is able to express so much in so few words… : )
Beautifully done. Very unique!
thank you… and…it seems to “work”… so practical too. : )

I’ve added a link to Nurturing Thursday. Awesome!!
Hi Becca, I’m happy to have it passed along… I think it might be one of the most “nurturing” reminders I’ve come up with…encouraging and reminding oneself to have the flexibility, again and again, to shift out of resistance or judging into benevolence… my new favorite word… “benevolent awareness”… lots of new pages with that one too. : ) Benevolence with oneself and others… : )
Very inspiring! I try to live this way, to be flexible, to let go of old ideas and ways of being that are no longer working but it’s a day to day process.
Yes, a day to day process…. Marie, the posts on your blogs really inspire and support this process!
Waves of words reminding us of nurturing things.
Well done … namaste,
thank you, Isadora… love that idea of “waves of words….”
I just visited your own blog…what a lovely spot you have created…

Oh, you’re very welcome…I’m happy to share. Looking at that suncatcher in the windows has really reminded, inspired and helped me to make some positive shifts with flexibly coming back to kindness, acceptance, compassion…I hope it might support others with that too.
