Similar would be boring

Don’t you just love people and other beings whose first thought is to choose to love indiscriminately? Who should care what color your skin is, what religion you practice, or if you have one that you practice. Who should care if your teeth aren’t aligned just right?

We, as people, should have gotten over that, a very long time ago. It’s nobody’s business but your own to which God you pray to, or if you do. Just like there are no two fingerprints that are the same, nobody’s lives approximate any others as well. Even those who are members of the same family can experience vastly different realities. I say give everybody a break.

It’s time for us to stop being judgmental, and to get down from our high horses. I believe that we need to be kind and loving and compassionate to all beings.

If we were all the same can you imagine what a bleak world this would be? Our differences are the many spices of this existence. Where would we be without our artists? And where would we be without our debaters?

I think this world would more boring without the thinkers, the ponderers, the dreamers, or anybody willing to stir things up.

Oh, I like to stay positive in my columns, so please don’t consider this an instance of you being called out. But, if the shoe happens to fit, please take these words to heart.

And surround yourself with happiness every chance you get. Surround yourself with love through and through.

Surround yourself with different types of people than yourself. Challenge yourself! And love yourself and those you surround yourself with as one entity. I know this is far from the first you’ve heard this here, but I believe we are one! And I find that comforting, and I find that empowering.

We are as angels, and I do believe we are one with nature and God. And I firmly believe that God is love. Can you feel it now? I can!

You all have stars and saints and love, love, love inside of your beings, so how could you not act with compassion? How could you be judgmental? It would not be natural to your being. Right?

I say that we all have a bit of God in us, and I’m glad we do! It feels like love!
