We're Better Together
Updated: May 6, 2020
Communities are stronger when people bind together.
There’s strength in unity,
When we come together, it's like an impenetrable wall that can stand up to anything.
There’s nothing that can crush the collective will of the people.
Togetherness is the fan that fuels the flame of the human spirit, especially when grounded in truth and in Love.
Human connection goes to the very heart of being human.
And it's one of the reasons we’ve survived so long.
Our ability to come together to resist external threats
Our ability to cooperate,
Our ability to teach, to learn and together to flourish
So what then does it mean if the opposite is also true?
If the people are divided?
If the people instead of coming together, turn on each other?
Instead of connection, we have separation.
Instead of intimacy, we have physical distancing.
If we are unable to communicate as humans do, our smiles hidden behind a veil.
If masks are used as weapons to create barriers between people.
What if the seeds of mistrust are sown, where we begin to see our neighbours as threats?
As potential enemies instead of friends.
What happens to humanity then?
What happens to humanity if the highest order values are not Love, humility and truth, but rather compliance?
You see, if you want to impose your will on the masses, it’s a simple and proven strategy.
You divide and then you conquer.
You appeal to the deepest primitive senses and perpetuate fear.
You create barriers between people, both physical and psychological.
If you want to crush resistance to anything,
Then simply keep the people apart, turn friends into enemies and families into foes.
Because we know that the people united, can never be defeated, especially when lead in the spirit of truth and Love.
And if you don’t stand for something, then you’ll inevitably fall for anything.
These are the lessons we've learned from history.
So please don’t go snitching on your neighbours,
Don’t condemn others because they don’t subscribe to your point of view.
Transcend fear with courage
Deception with truth
And distraction, with focus and attention.
And make it your purpose to live up to being Human, in the truest sense of the word.
And always remember, we're better and stronger together.
