Tolerance doesn’t mean to simply leave a thing as it is – the ‘grin and bear it’ attitude of the world. Spiritual tolerance enables you to stay within a crisis and help to resolve it, because tolerance is of a higher order, or higher power than ego or anger. It means you are able to respond with understanding, care and compassion to the situation.
Where are the feelings of friendship and love, difficulties will be overcome. To tolerate something is a demonstration of goodwill, of having the aim to be co-operative and work for resolution.
Tolerance wins the hearts of others.
