Respect For Others’ Opinions

We’re living in a contentious era of disrespect and disregard for others’ opinions, especially if they do not agree with ours. Do you have a hard time talking with someone who does not agree with you?


Although this is rapidly changing, many of you still struggle with speaking with those whose ideas, lifestyles, and opinions are different from yours.

Today we’re asking you to ask yourselves why this is. And what you can do about it. We’ll give you a few of our ideas here. Then you can do some soul-searching. We suspect that will open some closed doors for you.

First, the only reason, ever, you struggle with others, no matter who they are or what their opinions are, is you see yourselves as separate from others.

And yet the reality is you are all one. There is no separation. You are merely different aspects of the reality you call God or Goddess.

Of course, there are no real differences. There only appear to be some while you are embodied in physical reality.

Of course, the key to unravelling all this is love.

We have defined love as the choice to see the divinity in all beings, in all that is.

Once you make that choice, the struggle you have with the apparent separation will slowly vanish. And so too will the illusion of separation itself vanish.

    Hello John and Berna,
    Great subject in this time of perceived division and world wide chaos. This is really an opportunity to show ourselves if we truly believe we are a part of All That Is and that as we create our reality, we can help bring in more love and light.
    As we live in the moment and see everyone as divine, we will always be centered and this will assist us and all those around us.

    Much love,

    • John Cali

      Thanks very much, Jerry!

      As you point out, this is a grand opportunity for us to, as the saying goes, “walk our talk.” Your words are wise, and hopefully will be heeded by all who read them.

      Much love to you, dear brother,
      John and Berna
