JMG Quote Of The Day - Vivek Murthy

"Being gay is not a disorder. Being transgender is not a malady that requires a cure. Had I been Leelah Alcorn's physician, I would have told her exactly that. And that's the message I want other doctors, nurses, health professionals, and public health leaders to help get out to parents and children who may be confronting these issues." - Surgeon General Vivek Murthy, speaking today on a conference call about White House support for bans on "ex-gay" torture.

“É possível que você tenha entendido racionalmente a falta de lógica da sua mágoa, e isso te faz tentar uma aproximação, uma conversa; te faz tentar ser amigo do outro. Porém, esse entendimento racional não é o suficiente. A compreensão é um fenômeno que se dá no plano do coração - todo o seu Ser compreende. Então, você precisa transformar o entendimento em compreensão. Para isso é necessário entrar em contato com os sentimentos guardados.” 

“Es posible que hayas entendido racionalmente la falta de lógica de tu herida, y esto te hace intentar una aproximación, una charla; te hace intentar ser amigo del otro. Sin embargo, este entendimiento racional no es suficiente. La comprensión es un fenómeno que se da en el plano del corazón – todo tu Ser comprende. Entonces necesitas transformar el entendimiento en comprensión. Para eso es necesario entrar en contacto con los sentimientos guardados.”

"It is possible for us to intellectually understand the lack of logic behind a particular hurt or resentment of ours. This enables us to come a little closer to the person involved, and attempt to have a conversation with them. We may even try to befriend the other. However, this rational understanding is not enough. Comprehension is a phenomenon that occurs on the plane of the heart – our entire Being comprehends. So we need to transform our understanding into comprehension. This requires us to come into contact with denied and protected feelings."

Suffering leads us to beauty the way thirst leads us to water.
