We’re all the same

Just because I don’t put as high a priority on an issue as you do doesn’t mean I’m stupid or that I don’t care.

And it doesn’t mean that I’m immoral.  This judgment on morality usually came from  religious ideologues… Christian priests or Muslim clerics. But today, religious-level conviction has seeped into non-religious political issues.  Best leave that righteous indignation in the church and mosques.  After all, they have an all-powerful God backing them up.

So no, I’m not immoral. You’re not moral. Or vice versa. We simply don’t agree.

And that’s ok. Because that’s were a discussion starts. One that must be had. It leads to an even better perspective, broadening each of our beliefs, where we start seeing context and a fine tuning of beliefs before they are applied to complicated realities.

A better perspective that indicates that, really, we’re all the same.

It’s dark because you are trying too hard. 

Lightly child, lightly. Learn to do everything lightly.
Yes, feel lightly even though you’re feeling deeply.

Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them. So throw away your baggage and go forward.

There are quicksands all about you, sucking at your feet,
trying to suck you down into fear and self-pity and despair.

That’s why you must walk so lightly.
