Under the Surface
From the picture, we cannot tell the race, religion or sexual orientation of those people. It challenges us to look under the surface, past what we see with just our eyes.
I like this picture. I like it a lot.
However, it is only the first step toward a much deeper awareness of who we are and why we are.
I'd like to take this further...
I'd like a picture where what we see is only what we really are --- our souls.
Who we really are is not the bag of meat and organs that contain us.
It is not even our skeletons (although that is a good start).
This human body is a temporary form for us to reside in during this chapter of our soul's story. Nothing more, nothing less.
It is here as a vehicle to help us explore and discover, very useful to bring us closer to our potential. We are all made of the stars, since at some point that is the scientific origin of our matter - all matter actually. That is where we come from and to where our physical bodies must inevitably return. Ashes to ashes, dust to dust. I wrote about this some years ago, using the analogy of cups (body) containing water (soul).
However, we are more than just our bodies. We are beings of energy and it is precisely that energy, Life Energy, which connects us all - it always has and always will. Our souls are timeless and our existence immortal.
I do not and will not accept any attempts by others, especially by governments and religious institutions, to promote division and separation of people based on arbitrary criteria like race, gender, sexual orientation, social status or religious beliefs. I know in my heart we are all one; we are all connected. Eternally. I love and accept everyone who loves and accepts me and will never allow myself to be influenced otherwise. I will allow my soul to shine brightly in the lives of others and light their way just as they light mine. Together.
I hope for a future when this is the common understanding and we finally let go of what tears us apart so we can truly be connected.
