For me, it is being open-minded...to people as well as new ideas. Being liberal, I tend to have a 'live and let live' attitude (that also stems from being a student of A Course in Miracles).
I believe we live our lives and believe what we do because we were raised differently. Though we can overcome them, certain things were instilled within us from our parents and other caregivers. We use those beliefs we learned to view the world and 'other' people.
Right and wrong, too, is a matter of our perspective. As Don Miguel Ruiz of "The Four Agreements" fame says, "everyone has their own dream."
What does being Liberal mean to you?
