It’s hard for us to tell ourselves that we’re beautiful and intelligent and loved. Maybe that’s because we haven’t been loved in the past or maybe that’s because we have been taught not to love ourselves. But we are all beautiful and intelligent and loved, even if we can’t see it. Our differences and our weaknesses only enhance that beauty, intelligence and love. Let’s stop doubting our worth, our capability or our strength. It’s all there, even if we don’t see it.
Although we are all intrinsically and beautifully different, we are equally all the same. We all have different bodies and minds, but we all desire respect, honour, fairness and dignity towards them. We all lead distinctively complex lives, but our lives still are our entire being, as is everyone else’s. Therefore, we should always treat others the way we would want others to treat us in the array of states we find ourselves, regardless of how far another’s life extends, opposes or differs from our own. Our relationships and interactions need to be based around kindness, love and empathy, or at the very least, respect and tolerance. Let’s unite, cooperate, and support rather than categorise, divide and judge. Let’s practice the essence of Namasté: My soul honours your soul. I honour the place in you where the entire universe resides. I honour the light, love, truth, beauty and peace within you, because it is also within me. In sharing these things, we are united, we are the same, we are one.
