Great article, Tom. Talk about accessing inner wisdom. This from a thirteen year-old autistic girl who’s unable to speak:

“I think people get scared with things that look or seem different than them . . . If I could tell people one thing about autism it would be that I don't want to be this way. But I am, so don't be mad. Be understanding."

We might try and apply this to everyone we encounter. It’s worth a shot.

I agree. It's all about accepting people exactly as they are - to allow them to BE who they are if that is what they choose - with compassion and understanding, even Love (which can be "tough love"). Not fearing (fear is the root of hate, anger, jealousy, irritation, etc.), or trying to change someone else to suit yourself. Fear only causes more polarity and distance, and surely we all living here on planet Earth could benefit from the opposite - pure and healing, unifying, unconditional LOVE.

The peaceful, powerful presence of Love - without exerting any force upon others - has this habit of defusing negative situations and rubbing off on others. All we truly need and crave is Love (which brings compassion and understanding). Sounds trite, but it's the most fundamental spiritual law of the Universe. And it's a wisdom/Truth we all know from deep within if we dare to look that deeply inside ourselves to access it.

You hit a hole in one with that comment Wendy. Its been preached for 1000's of years but it is the "truth".

Its only Love that can change this world, change you and I, our spiritual core that lives forever.

Why does love exist, if it isn't without a purpose.

On the subject of skeptics, anyone seen The Daily Grail today? Greg has really nailed the Randi challenge. Way to go Greg!
