“We have flown the air like birds and swum the sea like fishes, but have yet to learn the simple act of walking the earth like brothers.”

Happy Martin Luther King day everyone.  A day when we can all take a moment to celebrate our equality.  I saw Lincoln over the weekend, and its had me thinking a lot about paths…the paths we decide to walk each day, using history as a compass for our route.  But why do we do this?  Why do we allow paths to be defined for us at all?  They only serve to divide and limit, saying this is where you’ve come from and this is where you should go.  But today, we can remember that we have all come from the same place, and eventually, we will all return to the same place…so why, with this Oneness being at the beginning and the end, do we spend all of our time in the middle figuring out all the ways we are different?  Today, let’s not.  Today, let’s see the Oneness in everything.  Paths can fall away.  What is true is that nothing separates us.  And we are limitless.
