Why seeing everyone as equally worthy of love, rights and opportunities is good for your health.
Yes I am! I’m doing it. I’m putting a health spin on Marriage Equality because OF COURSE THIS IS WAY GOOD FOR EVERYONE IN THE WORLD’S HEALTH!
Compassion for self and others and feeling true equality with all living things is how we can heal ourselves and the world (fade in: Michael J’s Heal The World, “There’s a place in your heart, and I know that it is Love…”).
The absence of compassion in any community contributes to isolation and chronic stress in both the individual and the group. Kindness and care and genuine compassion are soothing, powerfully healing emotions. From an evolutionary standpoint, feeling included in the tribe was absolutely necessary for survival. Left-out literally meant left out of protection and survival.
We are wired to thrive if we feel valued and included.
I work to value myself and accept all of my parts - not just selective acceptance of ‘the good bits’ mixed with shit-talk and shame of the rest- so that I will see the full boundless worth of every other being with whom I share this round home called Earth.
Love is universal. It is the heart of the universe. In which case, no one can be left out.
This is a darn good day for America. Let’s keep the momentum and push forward together until there is no single one left out of our global tribe.
YOU are important and deserving of complete acceptance.
you are important and deserving of complete acceptance.
you are important. and deserving. of complete. and utter.
