So, from the last post, was there any difference in the scissors in the two scenarios that were presented? Were they evil in one and righteous in the other, even though the end resulted in the loss of human life? If you think for a second that there was anything different with the tool, then I've got some bad news for you.
The tool was exactly the same in each scenario. Why then do we label the actions of the attacker as wicked and the actions of the young mom justified? It wasn't the tool, it wasn't the scissors that we demonize, it was the purpose or intent of the person holding that tool. It's the purpose that you give to a tool which is judged and it's the purpose that you give to that tool that can quite literally save your life.
There is, without a doubt, one tool that is more important than any other, and it's something that we all have and can train to a higher level...the mind!
More to come.
