As an Emerald

The quote above really spoke to me today perhaps because I have been having difficulty trying to get my motives and intentions across. In other words, I am finding myself very attached to the opinions others are holding about my speech and deeds. When someone claims I’m motivated by anger or by greed but, after careful introspection, I am unable to discern these things within, can I learn to just allow these opinions to be? Perhaps more to the point of the quote, can I trust in my well inspected intentions to create a goodness that shines forth and can be seen by those sensitive to such things?
