The Road to TranquilityPeople do not always speak or act as we would wish.
As a result, we sometimes feel impelled to embark upon a rough road of anger or disappointment.
But there is another path, a high road, that bypasses anger and strife and leads instead to a life of tranquility.
That road is marked by the well-known phrase, "the benefit of the doubt."
Seeing someone else's mistake in the best light does not mean we are naive. It means we have the insight to know that misunderstanding, worry and stress are behind the offending acts of otherwise well-meaning people.
Using this perspective, we transform our world from a dark, hurtful place to one of light and serenity, filled with
good people trying their best, albeit imperfectly, to meet life's challenges.
