You say, “judge not.” Yet this instruction I defy constantly, dividing my fellows into for and against, they and we.

Blind me, Lord, that I may more easily greet unseen enemy with friendship.

Deafen me, Lord, that I may not hear nor react to the recriminations that may circulate.

Mute me, Lord, that I may speak no ill.

Let me not hate. Let me greet all with love.

(Letter #2,226)
