Love the Differences!

I love my eccentricities and uniqueness.
I delight in the diversity in my life.
I accept and appreciate everyone as they truly are.
I am willing to allow and learn, appreciate and enjoy everyone.

We are each unique.
We all have our special part to play.
None of us are unworthy of love.
All of us deserve respect and love.

There are special people on the planet who are unique in their own way.
We are to learn from and love each special person just as they are.
Our human mistake has been to focus on the differences.
We may have been taught to judge the differences and be afraid.

When we are innocent, we are curious and unafraid.
When we learn to judge, we may avoid and have fear.
With fear often comes hate and violent thoughts, words and actions.
With attacking behaviors, we imagine counter attack and create harm.

The karma of harming another is to experience harm for ourselves.
The karma of killing the body and spirit in another is to fear it for ourselves.
The outcome is generations of hatred, violence, insanity and war.
When we forgive ourselves and others for our craziness and cruelty, we can choose again.

Parents and politicians, people of all races and religions can heal it all.
When we forgive our own insanity, we begin to see it all must be healed in everyone.
When we stop judging different colors, beliefs, history, lifestyle and choices, we can see.
When we are willing to see things differently, we notice what went wrong in us.

We can clear the fear by learning to know and Love others.
But first we must be willing to know and allow our own eccentricities.
It is in our trying to fit and be the same that we judge others must xo the same.
Perhaps our real work is to celebrate our uniqueness and find a way to appreciate it all.

Every person, place and experience is unique.
Every time in history is different from every other.
Every one interprets the same situation and words differently.
There is no singular right way for all to live and love and be.

When we allow each one see and believe what is true for them, we let go of trying to be right!
When we forgive our ignorance and the pain we cause by judging, we free others to be themselves.
When we extend peace to everyone simply because we no longer need conflict, we are at peace.
When we know erasing the past is the key to being fully present, we find the joy of being here now.

We can accept our own uniqueness, simply by not comparing or judging ourselves.
We can allow ourselves, to express, create and experience our life journey without being wrong.
We can let go of the need to figure out or fix or make others wrong, when we accept outselves.
We can be free and trust in the unique ways others learn and love and live, when we free ourselves.

We are the same, you and I.
We are learning to live, love, learn and laugh in our own way.
Appreciate and enjoy your life journey.
Have life and have it more abundantly.

Loving you in loving you,

This poem was shared with me  anonymously and I trust you will find it heart-warming.

You Are Not an Accident.

You are who you are for a reason.
You're part of an intricate plan.
You're a precious and perfect unique design,
called God's special woman or man.

You look like you look for a reason.
Our God made no mistake.
He knit you together within the womb,
You're just what He wanted to make.

The parents you had were the ones He chose,
And no matter how you may feel,
They were custom-designed with God's plan in mind,
And they bear the Master's seal.

No, that trauma you faced was not easy.
And God wept that it hurt you so;
But it was allowed to shape your heart
So that into His likeness you'd grow.

You are who you are for a reason,
You've been formed by the master's rod.
You are who you are, Beloved,

Because there is a God!
