The Line That Separates Us
We draw our own lines which separate ourselves from others by the words we speak and by the actions that we take. Sometimes we single ourselves out from everyone else, without ever intending to do so. We are all one and the same, from all over the world, until we draw our lines.
Everyone is proud of their race. Everyone is proud of their history. But history has a place, and that place is in the past. Sure you carry on the stories of old, you want to share in the importance of struggles and triumphs, but you don’t want history to repeat itself.
Love is the universal language. When we use our race, we are separating ourselves from others. We stop looking at each other as being another human being; we are of this descent or that descent, making it appear that one is above the other.
We are all brothers and sisters in this crazy thing called life. It is a life full of mystery, beauty and wonder. My sister in Ethiopia…I am acknowledging her as my sister and her heritage. We are one, living in different parts of the world. We are all connected, related by what lay in our heart and soul. Try saying it, and then feeling it.
My brother in Japan…my sister in Russia….my brother in the Philippines…..my sister in the UK….my brother in India….my sister in South Africa…my brother in China. Once you say these words a few times, they will start to flow. The more you say them, the more you will feel connected with them. Or you can simply say, my brothers and sisters from around the world.
We are one huge world; many people have the same thoughts and actions as we do. It is up to us on how we want to shape our future. Our precious resources won’t be able to sustain our primitive thinking. The water supply in one part of the world, will affect the rest of the world. The food supply in one part of the world will affect the rest of the world. We are all connected; we are all brothers and sisters in this huge, beautiful place. It is up to us to sustain it. The line that separates us in drawn by us; sometimes the lines are invisible and sometimes they have borders.
