Together

‘Together’ by Philip Dodson

Together

We’re in it together
We can be kind together
We can love together
We can share together

We can help together
We can meditate together
We can walk together
We can understand together

We can be human together
We can be tolerant together
We can be positive together
We can believe in better together

Together we are one
Together we thrive
Together is easy
Together is love not fear

Embracing different

The closer we get to the opposite, to the different, to strangers, then the more we understand.

If we only experience our ‘bubble’ of life, then we lack the ability to truly understand and empathise with another.

Much of the violence both physical and mental is created from a lack of understanding as we stay within our echo-chambers and become fuelled with hate for anything different.

If we embrace differences we grow more together and become less disconnected and less fearful.
