I ain’t like you, nor do I want to be is the War-Cry of most people when being compared to most anything.  There are exceptions, one is you approve of the comparison.  But all Hell can break loose if that comparison is directly related to someone we are not fond of.

We are all different in our own way, and we come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and beliefs.  Still, some of us are alike in some very uncanny ways.  I have heard people say they have seen their twin from another mother, and I have seen people who look just like someone I know.  But, the reality seems to be we spend far too much time focusing on others instead of ourselves.

You would think our own personal uniqueness would out-weigh our desire to shed an abundance of attention on others, especially concerning the things that aren’t our business.  Our time should be spent on what we have in common, in order to make ourselves more relevant.

We don’t need a melting pot, we need a smorgasbord( variety)of diversity to use as a tool to help us maintain our identity while appreciating the differences of those near to us and around the World.  Instead, we focus on fear and superstitions just because we are different…

It’s not our differences that divide us. It’s our inability to recognize, accept and celebrate those differences.   Audra Lorde

There are people who think they work better with the ones who are similar to them, and that may be so, but it’s how our differences work together that creates an intelligent and reasonable purpose to any subject.  I thought the point of being different was to bring about a difference.  No two are supposed to be the same.

I believe all of this Am better than you nonsense has a lot to do with a lack of the right kind of education and self-worth.  And just for the record, Strength lies in differences, not in similarities.  Steven Covey

Our diversities should offer a sense of self-worth, and the uniqueness to bring that gift to the World.

When we are flexible and can hear and accept new ideas, the more options we gain while searching for peace in our lives.  But, in order to achieve these things we have to understand other people’s point of view and create an atmosphere where individual differences are appreciated and mistakes can and will be tolerated.  When we activate all our options we can open a slew of narratives besides our own.

Although we will never agree on every subject, most times when our creative differences clash, more than likely our Ego is the culprit.  That dream killer is the #1 reason some will never receive that all-important knowledge we all need to sustain growth. 

Listen, there is enough room in the gallery for both of our works of art.  The middle ground is where the quality of what we have to offer can be judged because of a proper setting.  So I suggest we be keenly aware of the fact that Judgment is one of those ego tools that foster separation through comparison.  Peter Santos

At the end of the day we all have at least two commonalities; one, we are All Human, and two, we are all made after the Likeness of God.  So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he, them.   Genesis 1:27  KJV

Because of that Bible verse, I understand and I agree with Maya Angelou when she said, I refuse to allow any man-made differences to separate me from any other human beings. 

The advantages of getting along with each other mean we can incorporate structure and strength into our lives, because if we don’t find some semblance of peace, we go to war, and I believe War is a poor demonstration of who can out kill the other.  We need to understand our differences do not define us, it’s what we do with them that makes us a better person, and an asset to others.

By the way, those fights concerning Religion as far as am concerned is just us fighting about a difference of opinions when it comes to The Creation.  You know, the ones concerning God and Jesus Christ; Is He, Was He or Wasn’t He, and an array of man-made institutions to support these conflicting ideas.

There wouldn’t be as much drama if we could only get a grip and realize sometimes we will be separated by differences, and sometimes we will be united by common ideas of respect and compassion. 

Jim Coleman hit the nail on the head when he said; Our differences of opinions can be creatively stimulating as well as frustrating.  Oh, how well do I know that feeling, But let’s be clear? 

No matter your standings; rich or poor, blind, cripple, maybe crazy, those differences cannot save you, nor can you save others by pushing your ideas on them.  Only Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior can save us, and He doesn’t push, so it’s up to you.

As for me, the one difference I am Not willing to change is Jesus Christ is Lord; that’s my belief, and I am sticking with it.

It’s Something To Think About!

Thank you, Jesus, and it’s in your name we pray.

    The next time I read a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a lot as this one. I mean, I do know it was my option to read, but I actually thought youd have something attention-grabbing to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about one thing that you possibly can fix should you werent too busy searching for attention.

    First off I want to say excellent blog! I had a
    quick question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you
    center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.
    I have had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts
    out there. I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost
    just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips?
