Diversity is key in our lives if we have to grow well-rooted.
To diversify ourselves is one of the wisest goals to have. But what is diversity? This is simply defined as the state of being diverse. At this time we are living now, we all need to understand each other better. You may wonder why that is important. True understanding can bring more harmony within our society, or better yet, to our lives. This, in turn, can lead to becoming more understanding with and of each other. It is necessary for all of us to understand each other to make sense of what we are going through within our world. So diversity is key if we need to make any sense of it all.
When you diversify yourself, it will lead you to a greater understanding of the other people we share our spaces with. If you understand each other, will not your appreciation for human beings change? Firstly, we need to understand that change comes from being aware. Are you aware that if we all could tune in to having a brotherhood or sisterhood our society would be in a better state than it is today? Because once you sincerely understand individuals, your perspective will change. Remember that misunderstanding is formed by not being understood. So ask yourself consciously, do I understand people?
Equality brings true diversity, so when we learn that we all have an equal stake in the pie, then diversity comes naturally because that would mean we truly understand and embrace all as humankind; meaning we all can learn something from each other. So if we perceive ourselves as being equal in status and in rank, our world perspective on humankind will change. Is this not what we want for the progressive society that we claim to be? And to do this will also require us to love each other from the inner heart.
What is the effect of being diverse? In plain and simple words, we can describe it as just love. In anything we do, love has to be the motion or the motivator that drives or pushes us forward for a better day. The only way we can move forward is through loving each other with sincerity. Do we have that understanding and appreciation? Do we have that foresight that it is needed in this society? As I write this, let us embrace each other through the eyes of LOVE...Then our understanding and appreciation would be greatly improved because we can truly be aware of each other. We will change by us first wanting it.
After diversity comes this phenomenon known as love. Love is the answer and it is what we need now more than ever to unite us for common causes. It will make our LIVES better but this appreciation will emerge only when you understand yourself. Love will help us to see beyond the barriers of colour, creed, race and other factors. Once we take the stand to truly embrace this time and moment, we will improve ourselves because we see individuals through the eyes of love by being diverse.
By truly understanding individuals, all waters in life will change because we understand the very essence of what it takes to be human, or shall I say civilised. Let us truly learn to embrace each other, appreciate each other and see each other through the eyes of love. We will certainly see the society’s perspective change once we march forward progressively with a positive choice of words by being diverse.
