The world is much bigger than our mind could even imagine.
It may scare us with the abundance of factors that influence people and their behavior – the hate, the love, the criticisms, the racisms, the judgments or appreciation.
You may get completely lost and feel extremely minute when you get in contact with this wider world…
But just think broader with a general perspective.. aren’t we all biologically at least 5% ( I could say more though) similar to each other – ignore the different factors – colour of the skin, nationality, the ‘I am from this place, therefore I look like this’ factor, the body sizes, the lifestyles, the educational background – anything – just about ANY factor OTHER THAN that we are all humans with one mind, one heart and a body that carries it?
That person who just passed by – is just another reflection of yourself. That person is made of the same ”materials’, you are made of. Each of us grows a year older the same way you do. Each of us breathes and need the same things you need to survive in the world we are given. Yet, we pass on the slightest negativity of judging and stereotyping one another – we comment, demean, or pick on one another.
Given that we have a mind of our own, we could take the slightest effort to consider ourselves thankful to even have the capacity to think straight and have conscious thoughts to get us through events that take place in a day or so. Yet..what some of us do/say to one other individual/group of individual is beyond atrocious.
You are as equal to that person next to you. You are as equal to that person you commented on the internet. You are as equal as the person that waiting in queue for the cashier.
We are all equal to each other more than we can imagine. We (or at least some) just don’t see this only because we utterly refuse to believe this, and so ‘being equal’ APPEARS to be out of topic.
Where you stand now, is where someone stood earlier.. and who you commented on now could be you later. Would you appreciate if you swapped places? Would you show much hatred to yourself? No right? – Then why the trashing, the cynicism and/or rude behaviour.
In hopes to hear of an increase in the no of safe places for people to live in,
I sign out.
