Putting Equal in You and Me
by Rick Meline
I have always been one to support Equal Rights. marching, campaigning, and signing petitions. Knowing we all come from the same source. You = Me™ spoke to me as a simple reminder of our unity. How embracing all our diversity. We become stronger, wiser, more loving as a society.
I struggled in my everyday life on how to practice You = Me. How do I not judge the rude man on the bus. How do I look for upliftment when the news sounds so bad. It seams like I’m always looking to be offended. The unjust must be called out.
I looked deeper into what I was judging. Where was this hatred for my fellow man coming from. If we all come for the same source. Then this all lives in me as well. Only when I can find the love and forgiveness for myself. Can I find the same in others. Where true allowance of humanity exists.
Where the rude man on the bus is just a reminder of gratitude. Where you are thankful for your life and bless him on his. The title should be “Putting Equal Back into You and Me”. I believe this has always been in us. We just forgot.
