Self-equality

Posted on Updated on

Imagine a room full of five year old children. Which child is in charge? Which child has authority to say who is better than whom? We as adults are very similar to these children.  We are all equal. Yet, we place judgment on others everyday.  We are quick to point out the faults of others.  Why? Are we so insecure that we need to bring down others in order to improve our own self-stature? We constantly compare the success of others to the failure of our own. We create the illusion of inequality that constitutes our discontent. Our perception is askew due to our fear that we are being left out. This indeed is the action of a five year old.

Simply put, I have no right to judge you. There is no rebuttal to this statement. We are all on the same rock floating through space. Our time on this rock is limited. I can find plenty of constructive things to do with my time. Judging is not one of them. 🙂

    In a room full of children there will be those who grow up and work as singers, piano players, scientists, garbage collectors, business owners, activists, medical workers, research industry, stars and seekers of the unknown/inventors, artists, designers and judges/law. Each will meet and greet the judge of life. Who is that judge, who is the one/many they meet. For they will. I don’t know, but I know that in that classroom and in all the classrooms of life we look at people and say more then the words equal or have said it. Equal is something to judge so that we are aware that not all is equal in terms of people’s lives, in terms of their cells, their outlooks, their circumstances. Yes, we may begin as equals, though even at birth we find so much inequality in this world.
    I often say that we cannot know our side unless we know the other. This may bring us closer to equality, for by knowing we allow others to express, and further we listen, really listen to what they are saying. Not in hatred, not in fear, but in respect.
    To say we are all equal is utopia, we are not all equal, though perhaps you express what we all strive to acquire. A relationship to others that regards them as equal. “There is no them or us, only us.”
    Sincerely, Susy
