Getting your bearings

3 years ago

I stumbled upon this some time ago and it spoke volumes to me. I think some of you might enjoy it too. So here it is…

"True bearing cannot be imitated. But if one has a tolerant and benevolent heart and treats others with forgiveness, understanding, and concern, he will be a person of great bearing. Bearing comes from noble self-cultivation, and has a graceful personality and broad-mindedness.
Everyone will feel its charm. Men with bearing will increase their gracefulness, open-mindedness, extraordinary charm, and manliness. Women with bearing will have deep self-restraint, wisdom, elegance and lasting charm. This will be displayed in daily life as the proper way one treats others, with an humble and open mind, and without guarding ones’ shortcomings. When a person has bearing, his life will have no regrets, and he or she live a natural, unrestrained, and harmonious life."

I’m bumping this because I have an ego to protect! ;)
This time I have a question…Do you agree with the author, that “When a person has bearing, his/her life will have no regrets, and he or she live a natural, unrestrained, and harmonious life.”?
I do. The way one behaves or conducts themselves is a reflection of their inner selves. By being open and honest with yourself you reflect on what is truly important in your life. Then you live that life.
