As I close my eyes and drift away to a land where there is love, health, peace, and blessings. I wanted to take the time to think and reflect.
The truth is that the other day I asked some very important questions, I do consider them important because I think that the way we think about race, ethnicity, religiosity, or any other minority group needs to be shifted. "Races" are no longer, one more intelligent than the other. Intellectual growth, socio/economic status, and successes can be seen all across the board. Not saying that poverty does not exist, or that improvements need to stop. Improvement needs to continue, but the fact that we can celebrate success of all the races reveals that, "races" can no longer be dumbed down, or controlled, because the smarter one's are going to speak out for the ones who remain voiceless, or who are not in a position to be heard. Essentially what I am saying is that we have to find ways to level the playing field. Control, dumbing down, or leaving out segments of the population does not make sense as social innovation is propelled forward, or for the financial / economic health of nations. The need to think about how we view race could not have come at a more important time. Weather we like to admit it or not, there are political contexts involved.
Questions I asked: *We have to find new ways of how we view race. Is one superior to the other? *We have to find new ways of how we view religion. Is one superior to the other? *What if we were to view peace differently? *What if we were to change the language that we use to talk about peace? *What if instead of fighting for peace, we thought about loving each other, at the level of human to human?
We could take these thoughts and even look at them through the lens of religiosity / spirituality, or in a Godly sense. God wants to embrace all, all his children. If a child came to God that was of a different race, God would not say: "I don't want to talk to you". God would not get angry, or turn away. God would lovingly embrace that child. In the same sense, what if we viewed the above questions through this lens? Rooting out perceived differences for race, religion, gender, sexuality, ability, (dis)ability, any other minority or even majority is necessary. Could this structure be useful for human beings, so that we can level the playing field for all races, religions, minority and majority groups?
