something I learned in what is called a learning circle--I would be about 20 at the time

And Elder lead the Circle and this is her teaching more or less and it is one that has stayed with me.

there is a world wide health problem--and it is a very serious one.

--it has caused wars--families to be torn apart--destroyed reputations--caused damage that can never be undone--caused people to take their own lives and the sad list goes on


the doctors have no cure for this problem--there are no cures in the medical community.

the problem is gossip

the cure is not repeating an account of something written or said that may have been totally mis-understood by someone. and this can be when there is a difference in culture

And she went on to say this
IF YOUR LIFE IS SO EMPTY THAT YOU HAVE TIME TO DISCUSS OTHERS--THEN MAYBE IT IS TIME FOR A CHANGE IN YOUR LIFE.

And you know to this day I remember that story. And it is something that has stayed with me all those years and it has a lot to do with the way that I treat others.
If I have an issue with another person--it is between myself and them--not the rest of the world and I firmly believe that this is the way that life should be handled
thank you for taking the time to read this
