I decided to eat breakfast by myself this morning at one of my favorite eateries while my lovely wife was off with some of her friends to enjoy a little camaraderie. As I drank my coffee while watching people come an go, the thought enters my mind that we are all alike in ways that cannot be seen, but very different in ways that can be seen. We are all made up of the same atoms and molecules that generates the energy to propel us in life. So, do we not all share the same common internal energy and building blocks of life? Those commonalities gives us all some common ground to realize we are all made up of the same matter that connects us to every living thing in the universe. The thought of knowing we are never alone, but we are part of the unseen matter that is present in everything is somewhat astounding. If only as a whole, the world could realize we have a commonality with all that exists, we might begin to respect life and begin to take the necessary steps to become better guardians of our planet and universe. There is a need for internal peace and harmony to be achieved, if only within ourselves. Until that happens, we are aimlessly adrift with our external being in conflict with our internal being. There is more to life than what we see externally. The teaching for centuries has instilled within many, a trend to neglect the commonalities they cannot see. We are all brothers and sisters in the grand scheme of the universe.
What you see.
