“A pure heart does not demean the spirit of an individual, it, instead, compels the individual to examine his spirit.” ~ Criss Jami
Being mean is associated with evil and evil is the brother to malicious intent. Why be mean?
There are several examples of mean practices, one of them is; when one person laughs scornfully at another or ridicules another in the midst of other people, for sheer pleasure, and with the intent of belittling them.
No! You do not want to take pleasure belittling people. You also do not want to be the one who makes another human feel bad about life or themselves; you want to be the one whose bowel flows with mercy and compassion. It pays to be that one whose bowel flows with mercy and compassion!
