..THE COMMON BONDS OF HUMANITY


Our uniqueness is a blessing to this world; it breathes life and creativity into it. And yet, there is something amazing about being able to agree with someone else about something. For when we do so, we experience a deeper bond with them, and a little more of the unity that so strongly defines us as human beings is exposed and shared. This helps to clarify the connections that we share with one another and elevates them into something much more real, clear, and focused.

The bond of shared feelings and perspectives undoubtedly is "one of life's choicest pleasures." And what is perhaps even more satisfying is our ability to share it with those in our lives, with those we love and care deeply about. This provides a natural channel through which we can elevate our relationships and build a unity and togetherness that does not require others to feel or see things as we do. In addition, it is important to recognize that we can access those feelings at any time simply by acknowledging that we are all family- we breathe the same air, live on the same planet, and share the common bonds of humanity.

It is, and always shall be, a great blessing when someone agrees with us and shares our feelings and perspectives. And when we can appreciate this blessing, and share it with others, little by little we can make life more pleasurable for ourselves and for those we love.
