Unite as One Human Race

Unite as One Human Race

I hope that people will finally come to realize that there is only one – the human race – and that we are all members of it.

Margaret Atwood

I certainly hope so and I believe we can do it together; to be one human race. As we usher in 2010, I believe many of you have already made resolutions for the new year. Please allow me to suggest another if this is not one of your resolutions: Let us make peace with ourselves and eventually with the world.

We are different and yet we are also similar to each other. We are all sons or daughters to our parents, fathers or mothers to our children, uncles or aunts to our nieces and nephews, brothers or sisters to our siblings and friends to our friends. You and I, we are just souls being housed in different bodies.

When we focus on the differences, we see the differences in colour and culture. When we focus on the similarities, we can look beyond the physical layer into the beauty of the soul – the essence of life.

This is a journey with lot of challenges, but one which we do not travel alone. And together we can do it! Let us join our hands together to take on this journey of peace where our children understand and respect each other difference. And they treat each other with loving kindness and compassion. We can positively influence our children through our actions.

Wishing everyone a great 2010 with Love, Peace and Happiness!

    Hi BK .. thank you for those thoughts – as you say we are all we are – we are the same .. souls within a physical body – we can be more generous, more thoughtful, more caring, more loving, offer more smiles, offer more gratitude and do as much and more for all – live life to the full .. we have 365 days ahead .. with a heart full of warmth, peace and love.

    Very skeptical as the topic and contents said. Words are easy from lips and actions wise, only the fool will do like wise!!!

    I never believe in reality world ppl are that kind hearted… only to bluff and back stab another race of even same race, they expect you to die and not afloat anymore!

      @ housewife9988, as I mentioned, “This is a journey with lot of challenges ….” I did not expect this to be easy. Just as there is no shortcut to any place worths going. This is what we have to put in the effort if we want to realise it. If everyone of us do our part and lead our children by example, eventually we will really experience this. I agree with you that some do harm to another human but there are also people who are doing good to other people. If we can work ourselves to be good, we can influence people around us to be good.

      @ Danette, Happy New Year to you too.

      @ Cathy, thank you for your kind comment. Wishing you and yours a 2010 with Love, Joy and Peace.

      @ Tina, yes, it can be a challenge to many but like you, I remain optimistic too.

      @ Dori, Happy New Year to you too. May you and yours be blessed too. 🙂

      @ Ben, thank you.

      @ Jean, yes, we can always control our response.

      @ One of The Guys, Happy New Year to you too.

      @ Anne, I certainly hope that it will happen and I believe it can happen, not through my own effort only but through the effort of each and everyone of us.

      @ Tracy, glad that you are home safely and that you enjoyed your trip home despite all the little hiccups. Thank you for dropping by and wishing you and yours all the very best of love, peace and joy in 2010 too! 😀

    This post reminds me of the lyrics to The Riddle by Five for Fighting. “Cuz we’re all we got on this bouncing ball” It probably makes more sense if you listen to the whole song. Let’s hope we can at least be closer to peace.
