When i say that I don’t understand the Paris Attack, or similar attacks, here’s what I mean.
We all need a couple things that make us work.
- A way to make money (so we can afford the food, water, and shelter)
We need a couple more to make us flourish
- A sense of belonging
- Meaningful relationships
- Long to fall in love
- Want what’s best for our kids, if we have them
- Bleed when we get wounded
- Want to be respected
See how many things we have in common as people. At least 10 things. With so much in common, I feel like we should be able to understand each other. I believe that underneath we are all the same.
I am apparently, naive.
But do you see where I’m coming from? Anyway, it doesn’t matter, because the truth is, it’s the differences that are fucking us right now, and not the similarities.
I leave you with the the loving-kindness meditation (it’s all i got….):
