Differences aren’t a bad thing, similarities are. When that one bothersome person frustrates you to the point of no return, remind yourself that you’re only annoyed at them because they’re different. You like the people most like you in the world, but in reality, being with people just like us never teaches us anything about growth and forgiveness. Differences with others stretch us; similarities comfort us.
Life on earth is such a opportunity that we cannot afford to miss any of it’s moments… Beneath our superficial differences we are all of us walking communities of blood, sweat, tears and joy. The world shimmers, a pointillist landscape made of tiny living beings that can work together to create ideas and objects of such immense beauty and importance that we are each changed not only by the process but through it. We are here for each other, not against each other. Everything comes from an understanding that we are a gifts in each others life – whoever you are, whatever our differences.
Peace and Love, Jim
