It’s funny how un-accepting we can be. We criticize, we judge, and just basically make no effort to understand when people are different from ourselves. Why is it so hard for us to accept what it different? Why can’t we allow others to be themselves?
What makes the world interesting is our individuality. Be it Black, White, Straight, Gay, Married, Single, Thin, Thick, Christian, Jewish or Muslim. Why can’t we allow others the express themselves the way they see fit? But, more importantly why can’t we appreciate and be loving towards those different?
I ask this question, because I notice that during the course of the day there is no person who does not experience or witness some form of discrimination because they themselves or someone else is in someway different in appearance or culture. Instead of blessing the spirit that stands before us, celebrating their individuality or maybe taking a moment to get a better understanding of the other person. The person that is considered different is treated in a rude or disrespectful manner.
We come from different times, cultures, backgrounds, and religions, but at the end of the day we have to remember we are one. There is only a difference if you want there to be. But that little bit of individuality shouldn’t get in the way of anyone being loving, kind, considerate, or understanding. Every life from every race, economic background, and religion is valuable and should be treated as such.
Yes, we all run into those people that are harmful and those people come in all colors and religions, but it still does not call for judgment just distance. You bless them and send them on their way. We will never really understand all that there is in the world, but my won’t it be fun trying.
Were you accepting today?
Love and blessings in divine order,
