No One likes Poison

I was watching a tv show recently “Unforgettable“, it’s a series that Sue & I enjoy together.  In this one particular episode the main character, Carrie is poisoned and nearly dies. It got me thinking about how insidious poison is. The character Carrie was dying slowly from poison and the poison worked invisibly inside her, wrecking tissue and reeking damage until the damage would become beyond capacity to endure, resulting in her demise.

Of course in this case, it was a tv show, and the main character is going to live, they find an antidote and she is saved.

But what about poison in real life?

There is nothing more dreadful than the habit of doubt. Doubt separates people. It is a poison that disintegrates friendships and breaks up relations. ~ Buddha 

Is DOUBT that poisonous?

If it risks that what is (I believe) most important to us which is relationships, then we need to know for certain.

Doubt is to be uncertain, to distrust,  or to be hesitate in believing.  If I apply that to my relationships, that is poison. I don’t want any doubt at all. I want my relationships to be unquestionably healthy and real.

That isn’t to say relationships are all perfectly and sunny.  Rain comes, and we need welcome it as we need it for a healthy planet, and in the same way clouds can be a way to strengthen relationships.  Rain can eliminate doubt. When “bad weather” comes into our lives and then we will know, by their actions and not by words, that our relationships are strong –  because of the rain we cast out doubt and are stronger, healthier, doubtfree.

Thanks Disney for a great movie!

May we all have strong relationships with the people most important to us, and may they have no doubt in us, or of us.

Let us each be the doubt antidote that instead bonds people, strengthens friendships and heals relations.

Have a nice day, and thanks for reading today. I must be having a “thoughtful” day. 🙂

I am not certain if this is worth posting, so it could disappear soon. All of the above really is to tell your loved ones that you love them, and you really will always be there for them, unquestionably.
