Why do we focus on that which separates?
Why do we dwell on differences?
Surely, regardless of
… geographical location
… sexual identity
… financial status
… birthing order
… sexual preference
… colour of skin, eyes, hair
… etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc.,
we are more similar than different?
When we bleed
… our blood is red.
When we feel pain
… it hurts.
When we smile
… it’s the same language.
… than keeps us apart.
While we recognize and acknowledge our differences
… which make us unique
let us celebrate our similarities,
… which bring us together.
Thank you, Asger Lethfor of Denmark
for your lovely video: “Three Beautiful Human Minutes”
(link is below) that just “happened to show up” on my FB feed shortly
three times (!)
before I clicked “publish” of this Soulistry blog post.Serendipitous?
The semantics of it isn’t important to me.
The essence of this blog post
– and the video are.May we never forget that
there is more that brings us together
than separates us.
