My clients have been in an uproar since the death of a George Floyde, a black man by a white policeman – a few of the younger ones in their late teens/early 20s – have even been told to leave their home by their parents. Some partners have broken up. All because someone did not like someone else’s skin color – because of racial discrimination.
In therapy, I like to bring in allegories or stories to demonstrate my point… and it occurred to me I was so in awe how people got together like family when the towers fell. Can you imagine someone who is hurt, in danger, at that time going, Don’t save me, you have the wrong color skin, or how about â Don’t help me, I think you are a Jew or, how about â I’m not going to save you – you’ve got the wrong color hair. Whether we are white, black, yellow, red – or something else- we are all people. We are all made from the same material and divine energy. It’s what we do and how we think that’s important. It’s what’s in our hearts, our souls that’s important, our ethics and morals, and how we enact them in the world.
Is divine love and connection in our hearts? Or, do we have hate and have separation in our hearts? As people, we are all biologically basically the same, just arranged differently (like male/female anatomy) and have different colored hair, eyes, skin, or even lips! Yet all is basically the same. On the inside- we are the same; we all have a heart, liver, lungs, etc. We all have the divine spark connecting us with Source. We all at our core being have this same energy of Source within us, even when we are in denial. We are all connected, and as so, we are all one.
Quantum physics even prove that we are of the same energy and are interconnected. So, why is there so much discrimination still in the world?
I think it is because of fear. It’s all just fear of the unknown, or fear of rejection or even fear of looking at one’s own choices and the desire to blame others. I believe as A Course in Miracles states: Perfect love casts out fear. If fear exists, Then there is no perfect love.
But: Only perfect love exists. If there is fear, It produces a state that does not exist. So, if there is anything but love, we’ve created it. Discrimination of any kind is not love. Let’s change the world by living and breathing love and realize we are all connected, equal, and are love.
