(e)motion + (em)path(y) = Love
Ahhhhhh, yes. Breathe this in for a sec... How are you feeling about this equation? One thing I know is that our world could use a lot more of this. To be clear the “emotion” piece represents expressing my emotions—the good, the bad, the ugly (side note: there are no “bad” emotions; ALL feelings are important and are telling us something important if we’ll stop and listen carefully to our heartspeak)—in a healthy, loving, and humble way.
Have we, as a nation, lost our ability to truly LOVE EACHOTHER??? I think Jesus has a few words on this topic...
We certainly do not have to agree and I am absolutely comfortable with agreeing to disagree. What I’m not okay with is superiority, hate, raging, and name-calling just to name a few. And Jesus wasn’t either.
I fully admit that I have struggled with these things that I hate. I intentionally take time daily to move through the hard feelings. And it. Is. Hard. But it is saving my heart and some difficult relationships in my life.
Would you be willing to join us in practicing love (healthy expressions of feelings coupled with empathy) on the daily???
Jami and I would love to re-create a new world with you, one where the flourishing of all creation is at the center. Let’s change the world together!
