As a young child, I was shocked when I encountered any form of prejudice. It just didn’t make sense to me. In fact, it broke my heart every time I saw it. It felt so unnatural and unkind. People that looked different from me, or lived differently from me were simply fascinating (and still are), and I wanted to hear their stories and understand how they see the world. I absolutely love the rich diversity of our world. And I love how other people perceive the world we live in.

All the times in my life where I felt these discriminations, it hurt. Like when I was a child, and I could not accept an invitation to visit my friend Maria, because she was poor and lived in a little, run down house, and ... she was Mexican. My parents were worried about my reputation. I felt my parents being uncomfortable when I befriended a blind boy named Bobby. Did they think the blindness was contagious? He could tell stories of how he “saw” the world that were mesmerizing. He could see color with his heart!

Maybe my curiosity for diversity came from living with the near complete lack of it. I grew up in a nearly all white, middle class community, and I was excessively sheltered by my parents. So when the first black girl came to my high school, I went right up to her and introduced myself. She blew me off. And that was when I learned how toxic prejudice in this world can be. She was already armored up against anyone that didn’t look like her, and rightfully so. It made me so sad. I learned that prejudiced was a false and learned program, not a natural reality. I will never really know what it was like for her to be her. Nor would she even know what it was like for me to be me. We would never get to be friends. The lie of prejudice had already separated us.

Once we get a program implanted within us, before we even realize it is there, we become unconsciously attached to it as truth, that is if we are not paying attention. And we already know it's easier to be fooled by an illusion first, than to be convinced that we have been fooled later. This is why it is so hard and most often very painful to change our perceptions and belief systems.

So this is the world we live in. BUT all this is beginning to change. It takes monumental courage to face this level of our collective shadow that is roaring up to the surface now. We heal, what we feel, and we are feeling it. I pray this is the beginning of the end of separation because of the color of our skin, the origins of our ancestors, and also separation caused by erroneous entitlements, social status, education, wealth... or lack of it, and our different religious and social beliefs, etc.... We are already learning the great value of many people we once took for granted because of this pandemic. It is a start in the right direction. May they all be served and supported as we move forward. May all human beings on Earth be honored for their God-given divinity within them.

I feel deeply privileged, blessed and honored to have so many people that I can call friends from all over our great and beautifully diverse world. It makes my soul so very happy. I feel that my life has been so enriched by knowing them. I hope that I can continue to learn and understand more each year. There is so much to learn about each other.

So these are my prayers today.
May EVERY HUMAN BEING be known and honored for the quality of their HEART, and not judged by their life circumstances. Remember ... most people have gone through, and are going through still, things we know nothing about. May we STAND UP up in PEACE for those who can not stand up for themselves. May we peacefully stand up together to the bullies and the bigots no matter what their title is, or what uniform is worn. May we let go of outdated superior attitudes, and treat everyone just like family. No one is perfect, and no one is the same, and that is what makes this world so fascinating and absolutely rich. It is a blessing that we are all here together on this little blue planet, and we are all divine beings, and God created.

Please be kind to each other. As the Maya say, “In Lak’esh, ala K’in”. (I am another yourself ... The God in me, knows the God in you.) May we come together like the family that we truly are. “Inshallah” ... God willing.
