I don't have to read your mind any more than I have to read my own. In as much as I know myself, I also know you. Our results speak for themselves. No one believes in excuses anymore.

In one moment of silence, experience becomes irrelevant and presence stands alone. The sum of all that we have learned is nothing more than what we believe right now. Everything boils down to fear and Love. To say otherwise would be a lie. People think they are tricky and mysterious, but they are not. People are lazy and afraid, like me. We are all smoke and water. Is that why each of us wants to see ourselves as different from everyone else? Focusing on perceived differences allows us to believe that we are somehow superior or inferior, somehow possessed of unique motivations, somehow separated from each other, from Earth, and from God.

The difference makes it easy to justify our actions.

The difference makes cruelty and hypocrisy plausible and common.

The difference shields us from the responsibility of seeing our reflections in each other.

The difference breaks our hearts and strangles our potential.

So many of us rely on our difference, though it never sems to lead to deeper understanding. Isn't it strange that we believe our own unique nature makes us different from every other unique being? Just looks like one more thing we all have in common to me . . .
