Baha’ullah writes, ” Glory not that you love your country, but that you love your kind for the earth is one country and mankind its citizens.”
So many people now of late are speaking of assimilation (melting pot) as the only way to live together in harmony. Instead of welcoming diversity and learning about it, far too many fear what is different and seek to subjugate or annihilate that which they refuse to try to understand. The same sun warms us all. The same light gives us vision. The same red blood runs through our veins. We truly are one people living on one planet and our strength is in our vision of seeing and acknowledging our unity and our diversity. That will probably happen when we finally learn that there is only one human race and allow it to play out in our language, conversations, and beliefs.
We Must Create a New Language of Oneness
We’ve got to get rid of terms like “race” , “inter-racial” and “mixed” and create a new language of oneness. Science has already proved that we are one human race and the “divisive terms of races as we live them now” are not real. Many people profess to believe in equality and oneness, until it comes to marriage. Perhaps marriage is the final frontier to traverse to prove to the skeptics, doubters, and racists, that in reality we are all the same specie. What do you think? How do you view marriages between people of different ethnicities? Would you marry someone of a different ethnicity, color, or religion than you? What about if it were your children? Since there is ONLY ONE HUMAN race, how do you feel about getting rid of man-made, divisive, and erroneous terms? And what are your suggestions for bringing about the oneness and conciliation that our world is literally dying for lack of?
