Did you watch Extreme Makeover last night? This is a program I rarely watch but I was doing mindless paperwork in my office and thought – what the heck. Well, I’m glad I did.
Patrick Henry Hughes was born without sight and some real physical issues. He views his “disability” as an “ability” to do certain things better than most people. Patrick Henry has the ability to see people from the inside out, rather than judge them from the outside in.
When he said this, it was like someone slapped me in the face. I had NEVER thought of judgment in this way. Unless you are sight impaired, you judge. We all do. So here is the lesson. Pretend your eyes are closed when you meet someone. Listen to their soul speak. Become a great listener and an even better questioner. Suspend your judgments. Dig deep.
Personally I’m tired of people being so self absorbed that it is all about themselves. They mentioned on Extreme Makeover a web site that is a great one. I will also be selfish here (oh that’s right, it’s not about me) and ask you to visit my heartstrings at www.AZMagic.org.
