amen 🙂 trying to focus on that as well; too easy to fall into the trap of fault-finding and worse.
You are so right! Such things are indeed traps, because they are often just another kind of paralysis.
You certainly don’t leave any room for playing the blame game do you 🙂
Dennis, you have me figured out! 😉
I have never known the blame game to accomplish anything useful. It’s a form of paralysis via self-reassurance.
Hello Rabbi Adar, I didn’t actually see the post here, unless it was just the one sentence. Were there any books/articles you were recommending?
No specific readings, Debra. I am reading several sources. To tell you the truth i am down with back troubles again and this was a post I could do from my smartphone. I do also believe that the capacity for compassion is what keeps us human during extreme times.
