Beyond What You Know

Is there a reason for this season of violence and hatred
Seasoning your words and actions with the intent to hurt
With the intent to kill
Don’t grow away from love and acceptance
Don’t grow away from each other
Don’t grow away from yourself
Separateness is just an illusion
An intrusion in all our lives and souls that we mustn’t let define us
For the only thing that matters is recognizing the divine spark of creation, love, and life that runs through us all
Once you remove every protective layer around you and make your skin thin and your heart transparent
Once you demolish the walls that keep the pain in and the people out
Once you drop the need and desire to judge, criticize, and classify one another
You will see in all our naked vulnerability that we are all the same
We are all the same victim
We are all the same hero
We are all the same love just presenting itself in many different beautiful ways and expressions
Nobody is complete, we are all under construction, works in progress, students of life
And everything you are lacking is everything someone else might have to offer you if you allow them to
So why don’t we share instead of take
Why don’t we build instead of break
Because progress is only made through a willingness to learn and understand
Beyond yourself & what you already know
