There is a wonderful story circulating the web for some time now, and its high vibration is touching my heart each time I read it. So I’ve thought to share it with you:
“An African tribe does the most beautiful thing. When someone does something hurtful and wrong, they take the person to the center of town, and the entire tribe comes and surrounds him. For two days they’ll tell the man every good thing he has ever done.
The tribe believes that every human being comes into the world as Good, each of us desiring safety, love, peace, happiness. But sometimes in the pursuit of those things people make mistakes. The community sees misdeeds as a cry for help. They band together for the sake of their fellow man, to hold him up, to reconnect him with his true Nature, to remind him who he really is, until he fully remembers the truth from which he’d temporarily been disconnected: I AM GOOD!”
I don’t know if it’s a true story and, honestly, this is not the important thing. What matters is its message of wisdom and compassion. We can correct a damaging behavior with Love, Compassion and Support. Sometimes, people do bad things just to draw attention onto themselves… it’s a misunderstood cry for help, and our inability to respond to it with Love and Dedication, only makes things worse.
So, when you will find yourself in a similar situation, please, remember the power LOVE and COMPASSION. ♥
