KNOW YOUR NEIGHBOR
This is the time of the year when everything is nice and rosy, supposedly. It’s Christmas time ….
However, we are living in times of over racism, bigotry, discrimination and inequality.
One of the hot topics is religion.
In my humble opinion, religion is a set of spiritual beliefs and rules that each individual adopts be it by family values, education, tradition and many more reasons.
There is no religion better than any other.
Religion should serve as a guide, as moral posts for personal behavior. It should be a “road map”. A very personal guide which shouldn’t be imposed on any other individual. As such, all religions should be respected.
Because, in the end, whether we like it or not, we all are connected.
We Are All Connected Poem
I don’t know you, you don’t know me
We don’t know each other
Yet we do, somehow,
Some way, We are all connected.
We are connected to this life by many threads
Which we only notice when they are broken
Whether family, friends, work or welfare, all
Pull us apart in different dimensions in time.
You are connected to me by small pleasures
Which we only notice when we stop giving
Whether interest, intent, wish or wisdom, all
Pull us apart in different dimensions in space.
We are connected to each other for ever now
Which we only notice when we are apart again
Whether travel, trust, freedom or failure, all
Pull us apart in different dimensions in love.
