Is it not reasonable to assume that each and every aspect of our lives is different and unique from another’s? Consider the incredible fact that each human being is created differently. We are created in the same way, but are never the same and never duplicated.

Although our hearts beat in the same way, pump blood in the same manner and break down over time in the same fashion, they are all different in the aspects of how we suffer loss and heart break. The pain we experience may differ, but how we choose to cope with it may be completely different than even our closest companions.

Our responses to experiences in life are not mathematical formulas hard wired within us. They are individual reactions of the same unique design that gives us our personalities, sense of humor and physical appearances. Just as we are not designed to look exactly like others, we too should not be expected to act or react as others do either.

There is a divine purpose as to why we are unique. That purpose is not to judge others based on what we believe an action or reaction should be, but to accept those differences which separate us and keep us from reaching the greater understanding that our Creation was designed without limits.

In order to understand why existing concepts are in error, we must go back and look at the precise moment that right became wrong. It is only through realization and understanding that correction can be possible.
Let’s look at the concepts of freedom and that all individuals are created equal. In their origins they are right, fair, equal and just, but is what we experience every day truly the practice of such righteousness?
Humanity does not treat those it deems important and the homeless population the same. One is protected under law or duty while the other is left to die in the streets without either. In essence, this practice places the value of one life over another suggesting one is not equal to another.
When did this become common practice and why did we allow it to happen? Perhaps an ideal that is not practiced should become an idea that needs to find its way back to its origins.
Laws, customs and beliefs which place levels of value on individuals are not concepts of righteousness but practices of arrogance which degrade the importance of all human life. To truly be free, we must become the original concept of freedom through our actions.
The value of life is what we give it. If we are to live as free societies, then we should govern as such expecting no more or no less than those who are governed. Only then will humanity truly be free.

Everything in our lives is connected. All that we see, experience, learn and understand connects to the other at some point during the course of our lives.
As we live day to day, what we perceive as random acts, accidents or seemingly unimportant events thread themselves into our psyche and become part of a woven tapestry making up our existence.
We may go for years not remembering a specific image we saw or moment from our past and then through a new experience, it comes back, helping us to understand our new circumstances.
Quite often that moment or image will seem insignificant when experienced. But when the connection is eventually made, we begin to realize that what was then was simply a part waiting to connect to what is now. These small threads connect to become a weave that will ultimately connect to what will be.
Everything in life is connected with one part simply a part of another. We are all threads weaving our way through life, connecting to each other and adding to the fabric of society. When our spool is at its end, what we as individuals have woven is left as a small part of who we were connected to a larger part of life’s tapestry, ultimately revealing who we now are together.

Nothing has ever been destroyed by peace, lost through understanding, burdened by compassion or stolen through honesty. These are lessons that have slipped from the human conscience as we have grown older and grown apart.
We have become a people that has forgotten to raise our nations in simplicity, thus we have become a race lost unto itself.
We have forgotten to teach honesty to our children so they will be become adults with integrity. We have forgotten to teach that we all must accept responsibility for our actions and learn to apologize so we can understand that the true meaning of respect is earned not self-proclaimed.
We have forgotten to live with understanding so that new generations discover fairness and compromise and that one only works when applied to the other. We have forgotten to express compassion to friend and enemy alike and so our world has suffered the tragedies of indifference and not the benefit of charity.
We have simply forgotten to be who we should be. If we continue to allow these lessons to slip away from our lives, then eventually they will be beyond our reach. A people who can no longer learn the simple lessons of life are a people who lose themselves and ultimately become lost to history.

At what point does freewill stop and faith begin? Does the Creator monitor his creations and guide them through the use of intervention or does he simply allow us to make every choice regardless of the consequences?
By design, life is a journey. It is never still and cannot be stopped until that life is over. Imprisonment and neglect do not stop it nor have any actions perpetrated since the beginning of humanity been successful.
We continue on that journey without the ability to stop time, reverse age or change the internal essence that makes us who we are as people. This suggests that we do not have complete control but instead are given limitations.
However we, are also given choices such as how we choose to live our lives, treat others and pursue interests. We can choose to be negative, fearful, angry, criminal, giving, kind, compassionate and selfless. The choice is ours and has always been.
What we are not given is the power to destroy our Creator’s intention for us. We are all created for a purpose which is impervious to our choices. What is designed or destined to happen will be, but the aspects of that journey leading to the outcome is of our choosing.
When our choices become destructive to the fate we are charged to fulfil, there will be intervention to correct those actions. So it is not the Creator’s purpose for us or even the actions we often feel are out of our control that we should concern ourselves with,  but simply with the path that gives our time on earth the most beneficial purpose.

Sometimes all we can do is accept the decisions of others. Although life is so much about choices, we are often not given the choice to change the views and decisions of others.
Many times our only option is to accept and this is not by accident but by design. This act of acceptance, however, does not mean that we have faith in other’s choices. It does not mean we believe in them or understand the direction they have chosen to pursue.
To be believed in is a fundamental need for us all to build character, confidence and self worth. There are no great achievements without support, no rewards without faith. As we live we learn that we are created to believe in possibilities, not question them.
This is accomplished by choosing to have faith in ourselves and others. Unlike acceptance, this faith is always a choice which cannot be forced; it can only be given. This too is done by design.
Sometimes we are forced to accept so we can be given the opportunity to believe. If we choose to look beyond our own views pertaining to the lives of others and simply offer our faith to them and their choices, we become a part of all their accomplishments.
Endless possibilities exist only in the presence of unwavering faith. When we believe in others, we not only give a part of ourselves to them, we tell them that they matter. And it is that faith which is the most important element needed to achieve great things.

What we refuse to acknowledge is the measure of how much we lose. Every blessing bestowed upon us becomes a curse when we seek more than the blessing offers. When we seek more than what has been given, that original blessing is lost to us in exchange for a desire that has no absolute certainty.
If we ask why a given amount is all we receive from a blessing, then we have convinced ourselves that we need more, thus creating a thirst. But if we proclaim that what we have is all we need, then there is no need to want more and our thirst is quenched.
To want more is perhaps the greatest example of just how thin the line which separates good from evil actually is. We must all decide for ourselves what we need to be happy, then learn to be happy without it.
If we learn to live with nothing then any gift becomes everything. We should also remember that no one gets everything, yet everyone gets something.
We are given what is required for each of us to grow into a specific purpose meant only for us. When we choose to focus on wanting more, then we are separated from that purpose and drawn into a quest chasing a thirst which can never be quenched. No one who chooses to want more, ever proclaims there is enough.
