Tonight I read the book, Pete the Cat and His Magic Sunglasses, to my 6 year old son. On a sunny afternoon, Pete rides off on his skateboard wearing the "COOL, BLUE, MAGIC" sunglasses that Grumpy Toad gave him. He meets several animal friends along the way and each is transformed by the magic of these sunglasses. Owl finally sets it straight after the glasses break. "Pete, you don't need magic sunglasses to see things in a new way. Just remember to look for the good in every day."
That message must steady us now. In a time with so much perceived division. Whoever loses the U.S. presidential election MUST take the Higher Ground. Insults and slander won't heal the wound.
Love more. Talk less. That must become the mantra.
I know it sounds like hippie bullshit, but isn't that really what all the great early Masters like Jesus meant? It's hard to love the enemy.
We do what we do and that's it. Love deeply and make good with what we have. No expectations.
Like Pete discovered. There is no formula to making America great or having a great day. The decision is ours. WE have to see the good and keep getting better and better.
