Next Level

by Tom Swift

So you have reached a higher place. Good for you. You earned it. You had a lot of help. But you have done well for yourself. Bravo. From this new-to-you perch you are apt to look down your nose at those who have not yet made the climb. Be careful of this. First, because it very well could be a false view; you know how hard it is to see yourself clearly, much less anyone else. Next, because even if you do have a moment of clear vision the looking affects the seer more than the seen. Compassion is often the worthwhile lens.
