I AM HUMAN AND I ONLY SEE HUMAN BEINGS

Posted: November 23, 2012 in Opinion

I’m a human being and I look at everyone as being human first before seeing their skin or learning of their culture. It’s those that can’t see past color or culture that need to wake up and open their eyes. Those are the ones that are sleep…they are the ones that are blind.

You are not your skin color or culture to me when I first see you…you are human. To me, you are part of one race. The human race. No other denomination of race exists when I first see you. It will stay that way so long as you view me, and treat me, as a human being from the moment we meet, and beyond, as I will do the same. Treating me as something else that I am not will be a serious err of judgement on your part, and there will be no reason for me to even consider that you actually exist as a human because, to me, a human can only exist as a human.

I can understand that there is still racism running rampant in this country, in this world, and injustice is everywhere we turn. Racism, ignorance, fear, inequality, injustice, violence, hatred…these are all just tools to keep the masses of humans in check. But I refuse to allow those tools to control my frame of thinking. I think in terms of being human first and always!

At this moment in humanity, we are easily drawn to these tools. It is easy for us to judge and point the finger…to hate and scorn and mock each other, to fear what we don’t understand, to remain ignorant, to follow what our societies have said should be our norm. It’s easier for us to get in line than to walk where we please and allow others to walk where they please. It’s easier for us to be violent, or to run instead of fight. It’s easier for us to sit down for nothing than to stand up for ourselves or for others. It’s easier for us to give up hope for our own future than to have unwaivering faith in ourselves and our ability to be the creator and master of our own fate. A fate that can be one of peace, prosperity, perfect health, and unconditional love.

We will continue to allow this to happen so long we choose the easy way of life. That will not change until we begin to value life, accept death, strengthen the spirit, improve the mind, respect the body, and let unconditional love be our guide to the future of mankind and our civilization. From these tools we will fashion the kind of life that is truly happy, that is righteous, that is respectful, that is honest, that is faithful, that is prosperous and wealthy, that is fearless, that is just, that is imaginative, that is intelligent, that is peaceful.

There will be no anger and hatred among us because we will see that there is no reasoning for it. There will be no violence among us because we will see that there is no reasoning for it. There will be no ignorance among us because we will see that there is no reasoning for it. There will be no fear among us because we will see that there is no reasoning for it. There will be no disease of any sort among us because we will see that there is no reasoning for it. There will be no such thing as poverty because we will see that there is no reasoning for it. We will not judge one another because we will see that there is no reasoning for it. We will hold no secrets because we will see that there is no reasoning for it. There will be no need for war, no need for riches, no desire for class, no desire for status, no need to maintain an image of self that beckons for vanity and sexuality.

Everything about humanity will change. It will change when humans no longer choose the easy way of life. We can start by viewing everyone as humans first and forever…
