The greatest gift we have is our ability to look at one another with tolerance and love. Not only when we dance and hold hands and look into each other’s eyes. Not only when we feel close to one another. No, this feeling of kinship must be there even when we disagree, even when we don’t see eye to eye. If we cannot maintain our sense of kinship under adverse conditions, we may as well take all of the positive moments we have had with the other person and just blow them away into the wind.
“We need to cultivate a feeling of kinship with those around us that doesn’t disappear when we disagree or don’t see eye to eye.”
