two spiritual communities - 12-Step Recovery and New Thought.
I work with someone every day who has perfected the art of finding the one negative thing to point out, focus on, and stockpile in her memory despite the myriad constructive things available to tip the scales to the positive.
I choose not to spend much time contemplating her thought process, but I have diligently developed the perception that she truly believes she is helping. She seems to believe that her laser insight will ignite in others the desire to emulate her more and thus become better people in the process. Nonetheless I do enjoy and appreciate my work.
