More wisdom from Willie Nelson’s book It’s a long story; my life.
Nelson talks about how his grandma always had an open heart for people and that brought about a whole new understanding for me. I thought it bothered me when people are closed minded and it still does to an extent, but now I realize that isn’t what troubled me the most; it’s when people have a closed heart.
You can be steadfast in your beliefs, but still be open hearted towards those who believe differently and who live differently from you. Basically it’s just the old adage “Love one another” being put into motion.
Keep an open heart. Be compassionate. Love others. It won’t change who you are and what you believe but it will change the world around you. – Coov
