Advice From Jesus. Via Francis Of Assisi, Via The Tao Te Ching

I try not to judge others,
even though i will be judged by others.
Non-judgmentalism is the Way.

I try not to condemn
even though i will be condemned.
Mercy and compassion are the Way.

I will grant pardon
even though i am not pardoned,
for forgiveness is the Way.

I will give
without expectation of regifting,
because giving is the Way.

I will not measure what i give
God's gifts and love are measureless,
Because that is the Way.

(with apologies to Richard Rohr and the writer oi the Gospel According to St. Luke)
