Camino De Santiago

Along with a group very special friends, my brother Tim, and two Priests, we will be walking the Camino de Santiago in Spain beginning in August. Please friend me "Deacon Pat Kearns" on Facebook to follow the journey. I realize with limited internet, Facebook will be the easiest way to share the journey. I will share more on the blog when I return. I am also looking forward to using the experience in the current novel I am work on "Climbing Out of the Darkness."

Do we judge before we understand?

How often do we judge things before we even understand the meaning or significance of something?
We have a tendency to examine things as right or wrong in relation to our understanding of our own culture and societal norms.
Isn't it arrogant to think that all people should be just like me.
I am beginning to realize that if I withhold immediate judgement and really look, listen, and explore new situations with an open mind, I often grow and learn.
There are so many beautiful customs, traditions, and philosophies in life that I have never been exposed to.
Life is truly beautiful, especially when we open ourselves up to see life in its entirety, and not limit our view of life through what we already know and have experienced.
