Let’s honor our differences

We’re not all the same

There’s something I think a lot of people don’t realize, despite their intelligence or education. We’re not all the same, we don’t all think the same way. And we don’t all have the same emotions nor the same motives and purposes.


Examples of our Differences

Sacrificing yourself for the common good or the homeland, doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re a “hero”. It can also mean that you’re not interested in your life. Or you may believe that death is the transition to another form of existence, possibly happier.

When you do something extremely selfless or “majestic” in the eyes of others… That same thing may come totally natural to you or even give you immense satisfaction.

When you create masterpieces… You may do it with the same ease as someone else taking his dog for a walk. Or perhaps you do it compulsively, as if someone were dictating your every move.

On the other hand, every terrible action may be due to pure, innocent stupidity. Or due to some distorted view of things… Not because of bad intentions, which you often attribute to them.


The Spectrum of our Differences

An old friend used to say that “One is disabled and the other is a world champion.” Such are the differences between people at all levels and in relation to all characteristics.

It is foolish to judge others based on your personal experiences and abilities. Often you are not even able to imagine the other person’s inner world. Exactly as you can’t imagine what a planet in a distant galaxy looks like.


Differences and Unity

Yes, we are all one, we are all made of the same cosmic materials. Yet, at the same time, we’re so different…

Only if we accept the fact of our unthinkable diversity… If we stop projecting our Self as the absolute truth of the Universe… As perceived by our deficient brain…

Only then will we be able to experience the Community and truly feel the meaning of Unity. Only if we honour our Differences.
