    To see others with compassion and grace and less judgement.

    Then you are my brother and my sister, no matter what. No basic feeling of separation. Peace and Love prevails then all over. Paradise now, so to speak!

    I do,
    mostly.
    The only time i need reminding
    is when I come up against conflict,
    and then conflict reminds me.

    It allows some humility to emerge in me. I spent a chunk of my life thinking I am different, better, smarter alternating with its bedfellow: the thought that I am not worthy. It took me a while to realise that we are all ultimately cut from the same cloth. So any differences are the accidents of birth, nurture and what life throws at us. Entitlement then goes out the window. If people didn’t feel so entitled (me included) the world would be a safer and more just place.

    Not sure that it is life changing for me to contemplate this. Maybe at some point, when I am more enlightened…

    However, it is a reminder that we are all born as helpless babies, no matter our station in life, we all have human needs, and will all die.

    When you hurt, I hurt. When you are happy, safe, recognized, so too am I.

    To recognize that we are all human and we all have the same basic needs. We all should be treated equally and like we matter. The mental health of all would be much improved!

    To love our neighbor as our self, not instead or or better than but with equal concern and respect.

    It means living a life based on seeing things as they really are.

    Ideally we could all co-exist peacefully amongst each other and also see ourselves as whole and be there to support one and other more. Keeping this at the forefront of our perspective would allow us to be more accepting of each other’s differences because at the end of the day we are more similar than not.

    Though I believe this to be true, living that truth is sometimes difficult. I just read something that feels to fit if one believes that we are all from the same source…

    This was a powerful contemplation for me. All are family, in the same boat together, hang in there for each other over the long haul in a “Good Shepard” way, connected thru helpful and not helpful ripples of words/deeds. Other meaning but these are the first ones to come to mind.

    It would remind us that all human beings are brothers and sisters. We are all the same. It might bring more unity and peace. Less division. Less looking at people perceived “not the same” as “other”. If we lived life from the knowledge that we are all from one source, we would see no one as a stranger- just a friend that we have not met yet! We could say “you are a part of me”. A fine ideal to strive for, I think.

    While we may have all come from the same source we are not the same. We make choices throughout our lifetimes that take us down different paths. Some choose well, many do not. Many have no choice at all.

    I’ve believe that Creation is One and is on going and hopefully, evolutionary but I always remind myself that though life has one source, we are not all born into the same circumstances. A couple of poems by Danusha Lameris come to mind: “Nothing Wants to Suffer” and “Small Kindnesses.” Google her. It’s worth your time.

      Thanks Carol these poems resonate. I love getting poetry recommendations of a calibre like this.

      Different circumstances – Thank you, Carol – that’s always good to remember, isn’t it?
