Positive Qualities – Lenient & Sentimental

Dear Folks,
The grand essentials to happiness in this life are something to do, someone to love, and something to hope for. — Joseph H. Addison (1672-1719) Poet
The oldest adage in the book has been expressed by many wise people, it is essentially: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” I am not sure I would hope for blind justice. I think I would rather have Sentimental Lenience. But the highest spiritual ideal of this basic rule of living would be to treat all men, women, and children (and Mother Earth) as you know God would treat them.
Peace,
Jim
