Your Personal Message – Day 10

One World, One Tribe

To believe your own thought, to believe that what is true for you in your private heart is true for all men, that is genius.  – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Prompt:  What is burning deep inside of you? If you could spread your personal message RIGHT NOW to 1 million people, what would you say? (Author: Eric Handler)

Know Others

My burning message:  know others.  Through knowing others, it becomes easier to see our commonalities and understand our differences.  To know leads to understanding and understanding opens the opportunity for friendships and love to flourish.

To know starts with exposure.  It means traveling and seeing beyond the comfort of one’s cocoon, community or eyesight.  It’s seeing the faces of others, hearing their stories, knowing their histories, and accepting their differences.

As we know others more we move closer to knowing ourselves and realizing we’re all part of one tribe made up of many, many people trying to do the same thing—trying to come alive and live.

  1. I would want to effectively change 1 million people to understand that fear is the opposite of Love.
