Today's Truth and Beauty: All are equal. None are same. En♥, -me!
Just as one dollar, four quarters, ten dimes, twenty nickels, and one hundred pennies are equal in value but cannot be substituted for each other when undertaking certain tasks, so are the various beings of (and beyond) this whirling ball in space. The truth and beauty comes in recognizing that while the construct of our being may spew from the same infinite source of love, we are each set apart by our uniquely individual journeys, gifts, and enriching characteristics. None is more valuable than the other, but none can be substituted by the other. Your are a valuable resource that cannot be replaced. Know your truth. Stand in your truth. Speak your truth, in love. Honor every guise of truth.
"As different streams
Having their sources in different places
All mingle their water in the sea
So, O Lord, the different paths
Which people take
Through different tendencies
Various though they appear
Crooked or straight
All lead to Thee"
– Sanskrit Prayer
