    beautiful 🙂 One of my favorite parts about people is that no matter how much our minds might want to discount them, every single one of them has a story that’s just as compelling as our own.

    (by the way, every time I try to comment using CommentLuv–I think that’s what it’s called–a form pops up that asks me to log into your site..)

    Chris, I’m really glad this poem spoke to you. How right you are in that every one has their own story, no less and no more as important as our own.

    Thanks very much for letting me know about Comment Luv – I’ve hopefully resolved the issue now.

    hey Li-ling – excellent poem here which talks about the value of people and how we should really treat them. LEt’s try to see the good in others but also let’s try to remind ourselves of where people are at in life (their stories, struggles and dificulties) as well that we are all connected by the human spirit. Our ego reminds us we are different but our spirit should remind us we are all made of the same cloth and share the same humanity.

    If we operated this way, it would be a lot easier to live a life where we take care of and look out for each other. A place where we can apply and practice the golden rule in life.

    VIshnu, Lovely to see you here again. Looking out for our similarities rather than our differences – what an amazing world that would be.

    I can’t describe the beauty of this poem, its so deep within and totally reality oriented stuff. Something which a normal person refuses to ponder upon i.e. the inner self.
