117. Variety Are We
Variety is the spice and spirit of life itself! To uphold our shared humanity is to value distinction in the kaleidoscopic theater of human life around our tiny world!
WE are a many faceted jewel, we humans; both as a collectivity and each and every single one of the seven billion! Our sameness, our shared depth of feeling and meaning and purpose is exalted by our respect for different expressions!
This is a “pro-biotic” mindset! Yes! It says – live and let live! Celebrate the extraordinary variety that is the human spectrum! To want everything to conform to a uniform perspective is, in fact, “anti-biotic”!The antibiotic principle wipes out diversity, distrusts life!
What we wish to engender are “symbiotic” relationships!
This is one of the beautiful challenges of world citizenship; of rising above our mono-cultural prejudices and perspectives; of truly promoting an expansive field of choices for generations to come; of truly fostering innovation and natural genius in the sparky young lives in our care – in a symbiosis of respect, trust and compassion.
How we are IN ourselves, is how we are with the world! Trust life!
