“To discover joy is to return to a state of oneness with the universe”
We are all different colors, shapes and sizes yet in the grand scheme of the universe we are all connected and therefore all one. Our ego tells us we are separated by our religions, lifestyles etc… As a result, when we listen to our ego and separate ourselves from others based on outside sources, that is when problems arise.
When we see people of different ethnic backgrounds as different from us we are making judgments based on the fact that they either do no look like us or live a different set of values and morals. Wars as we all know are started because of these differences. Yet we are no different from anyone else. We are all a vital part of one universe connected by that universe. Only when we begin to fully understand this premise is when we can peacefully live and coexist within this world.
Here are a few suggestions:
1. Stop seeing yourself as different from everyone else. We are all connected by this universe and although we may be geographically apart, we are all one.
2. To understand we must stop judging others. When we judge others for whatever reason, we are separating ourselves from the universe. Judgment equals hate and hate breeds more hate.3. Do not label people. Labels are for our food products and merchandise. Labeling people is just another form of judgment.
