Other people’s expectations. Can you live with them? June 25, 2019 News I see the strangest thing today. At the shopping mall, I watch a crowd of people place stone after stone on a woman’s body, crushing her. The woman is alive and struggling though no one seems concerned. I run towards them. ‘What are you doing?’ I ask. ‘Nothing,’ they reply. ‘Just a normal day.’ ‘Just a normal day?! But what about the stones?’ ‘What stones?’ they exclaim with genuine surprise before continuing with their work. We are equally blind as we load others with our agendas; with what we want from them. And each desired outcome laid on them is a heavy stone on their soul. If we are to practice one thing today, it could be stone-removal, as we allow people to get up and go free. There’s still time to save the woman in the shopping mall.
