We Are One

We Are One

Today is not #MondayMantra
Today is #MiniMeltdownMonday
Indulge me? Will you? 😉 🙇

Today I am writing about how frustrated I am at hearing… reading… and being. .. around FEAR.
How does fear show itself?
In the judgement. In the “better than”. In the pity. In the superiority.

Its all there. Its been a fearful weekend. But how did they get there???? How did WE get here???
Like the Frankenstein monster we watch them rise, horrified at our creation.💔

What I am going to say is, I am a yogi.🙇
What does this mean?
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
So often I will say this to someone and I see their eyes shift with zero interest 😪 or they might make a comment about my diet or something like that…

Let me be clear.
Being yogi means
WE ARE ONE

I am never going to try to influence or convert you.
Because religion does not factor.
WE ARE ONE.
You are not better or more #blessed because you are a Christian, or because you are a Muslim.
WE ARE ONE.
You are not superior because you are a man.
You are not saved because you are straight.
You are not chosen because you are yellow or white or brown.
WE ARE ONE

hand prayer
Trust me. I know.
Its a hard concept here.
To grasp that the worst, the most cowardly, the hated and the diseased are AS IMPORTANT as the best amongst us, the kindest, the bravest.

But there it is.
WE ARE ONE.
I am Jew.
I am black.
I am gay.
I am torn.
I am broken.
I am whole.
I am refugee.
I am tormentor.
I am lost.
I am found.

WE ARE ONE.
Namaste 🙇
