Our deepest humanity binds each one of us to every other person in the world. Yet we rarely see others for who they truly are. We do not see past the blur of our own perceptions. Looking through our perceptions we get caught up in who we think are, rather than who we really are. That, in turn, clouds our understanding of others. We forget we are all brothers and sisters.
Humanity is our deepest essence.
We have a collective truth we all share. It is one of honor and one of love. We may be lost to that, but it is our heritage.
We do not need to have religion to live our deepest truth as our truth shines through everything we do. In that sense everything we do is sacred. In our deepest humanity, we are a family. I am related to you and you are related to everyone else in the world.
