We Are In This Together / by Loren Wheeler

There are no levels of people

There are only people

There are no better or worse people

There are only people

There are no spiritual or non-spiritual people

There are only people

There are no right or wrong people

There are only people

There are no winning and no losing people

There are only people

There are no good or bad people

There are only people

There are no pure or evil people

There are only people.

 

People learning about the world

People feeling emotions

People thinking and observing

People choosing, given varying sets of options and appearances

People learning how to live based on an individual and collective experience of what it means to be alive

 

We are all just people

Human Beings

And we must learn to live together

As individuals, and collectively

 

This is one planet,

And we all breathe the same air

The same water circulates through this one, whole, ecosystem

 

We must learn to respect one another 

The decisions we each make while living

The way each of us has chosen to be

 

Learn the lessons of our collective past

The holocaust

The racial injustice

The murders

The hatred

And find within yourself the reason these energies exist

Know that we all have within ourselves

All the feelings that exist in the world

All the love, hatred, greed, fear, righteousness, and pain

Feel out each facet

 

CHOOSE who you wish to be

 

Identify what you do not wish to be

And let it go

In love and acceptance,

Full feeling,

Remaining present in the here and now,

Release and allow to dissolve what you do not wish to be

And rest in understanding

 

Do not act to harm your brothers and sisters

Seek to unite all people under a common sky

Seek to unite all people as Human Beings
