Chess is a very intriguing game. It asks you to really think things through before you make a move. Walk your choice out and see all the myriad consequences of that choice. THEN, evaluate those consequences to see where each one of them would lead. Ad infinitum. And as a humorous motivational speaker, I don't usually practice this skill in life. But after watching a little video today, I think I should.
The video shows what would happen if we had eliminated bigotry in the world. It examines the lives of some famous people who died because of it and proposes a possibility for their lives if they had lived. Who knows if any of it would have come to pass, but it forced me to look at the ramifications of choosing hate as our next move, and how different things could be if we made more loving, mutually empowering moment-to-moment choices in our own lives.
