We all are, in some ways, the same. It might not be the same area of thought or connection with every person you meet, it’ll be a different connection on a different level, and there are LOTS of levels or planes of experience to draw from. The thing is, you might share a propensity for something with every living person in this world and you wouldn’t know it necessarily, but it would be true. If we were all honest with ourselves, we would acknowledge that we each share some commonality with every other person around us, whether we like that thing about ourselves or not. Our stories and our experiences are what connects us on a deep level. It’s rarely ever a superficial thing. So when you start looking around your world at people, keep in mind that each one of them carries a connection to you and you to them. Knowing that one thing goes a long way towards remembering how to love your fellow man.
