No. Just NO.

Daily Draw: Moon Oracle ~ Bridge, Moon Mansion 6

Bridging the gap when our heart says no, our brain says oh no, double no. The figures in the card, backed by a blue moon, are making an effort to find common ground.

I'm reminded by this card sometimes the distance is too vast to ever touch, for instance politics. No, double no.  But human interests are wide, is it possible to go sideways and reach out on hobbies, jobs, books, movies, weather? Surely, one forbidden subject doesn't preclude us from turning around and finding a friend with much in common.

"Too often we rush to judgment, race to argue, overlook all the common ground we share." ~ Matthew Kelly 1973-

From this found quote, I looked Kelly up. He is a the founder of The Dynamic Catholic Institute, a Cincinnati-based nonprofit organization, whose mission is to re-energize the Catholic Church in America. No. Just NO. Yet I'm sure we could have wonderful conversations about dozens of diametrically opposed subjects.

  1. I'm a firm believer that we all have something in common with another person, though usually that bond is not an obvious one.

  2. In my years of sales I have found the 'Six Degrees of Separation' is a valid conclusion. We do have something in common with most, still doesn't mean we have to agree with them, Say "No" and move on if the situation calls for it.

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
