We are all more similar than we are led to believe
We all want love, safety, and validation.
When we focus on our differences, it divides us
Causing fear, anxiety, and isolation.
The fact is us being different is our greatest gift
Our contrast makes us all unique.
Every one of us has much to offer the world
All of us as intricate as a priceless antique.
We have all been here before
We can connect to that much wider view
When we stop being about me-me-me
And start knowing there’s no me without you.
There is a much more vast and loving us
We find it by going within and quieting the mind.
Turn off distractions, get out in nature, stop numbing
Being amazed by the hidden jewels we can find.
Those jewels remind us of the unconditional love within.
The beauty reflects back in every crystalline facet
We don’t need to judge, prove ourselves, or struggle for worth
Our beauty and love is tangible and tacit.
Ram Das said, “We are all walking each other home”
This is such an important quote to comprehend.
Before we do that, we need to walk ourselves back to our souls
That is where our wounds and cracks can mend.
In healing and working on ourselves
We heal and improve the world outside
It might feel scary, but it grants freedom
It is safe for you to shine, not hide.
We all have past trauma and have had times
The world has seemed downright cruel.
But isn’t that a reason to come together as one
And let love, peace, and compassion rule?
It’s not all about digging up our ghosts from the past
On this journey, it is easy to get stuck there
It is about living our passions and joy
Which proves we do actually love it here!
Each day, we get a brand new start
To try and do the best we can right now
In reminding ourselves to love ourselves and others
The world becomes a kinder place by us taking that vow!
