devotions: consideration


Rose in the Baha'i gardens


… if a man is inconsiderate, 
even if he possesses much learning, people say of him, he is nothing, 
whatever he may know; for, if he were learned, he would not be so inconsiderate.

But if a man is considerate, 
even though he knows but little, to him indeed do people listen gladly. 
Consideration is the centre, consideration is the self, consideration is the support of all these.

Meditate on consideration.


(Upanishads vol. 1, Khandogya-Upanishad Part 4)
