Open mindedness is not about forming an opinion, it’s about understanding.
When we open our minds to others’ opinions, it is not to label that opinion, or judge it. Their opinion is not “right” or “wrong”. It is their opinion based on their experiences in life. When we listen with an open mind, we can understand how they formed their opinion. We can ask more questions, and once we fully understand, we can accept their opinion, even if we do not agree with it.
Using an open mind will lead to an open heart. We have not all had similar experiences, and we do not know what experiences everyone around us has had. And, even if we do know, we may not have had a similar feeling, action or reaction about it. We may have had others around us to help us through, while someone may not have had that blessing.
True understanding with an open mind and an open heart brings us compassion. It brings us into Unity, recognizing we are all Divine Souls on a particular path of learning, because of acceptance. With an open heart, we realize we do not have to change someone’s opinion, and we then know if someone wishes to also be open minded with an open heart, the understanding may lead to a different way of thinking or feeling. We may change our perspective, or we may not, and again, this is neither “good”, nor “bad”. It doesn’t make one person “right” or “wrong”.
We all learn at our own paces for our own personal soul growth. We may begin to ask questions about a different point of view to help us on our soul’s growth, or it may be to help another, WHEN they are ready. Remember, we do not all have to agree, but to be in Unity with an open heart and open mind, we must understand and accept, allowing us all to Love each other, as we are all one Divine Love & Light. We are all branches of this Divine Light learning, growing and understanding our lives and lessons by ourselves and with each other.
May we all cultivate an open mind & heart. ??? ~ Heather
