Look closely to this beautiful tree. What do you think?
How may types of plants are living together with the tree?
The tree is showing the spirit of acceptance, it can live well with other plants.
Think about us?
Why there is so much conflict incurred due to difference in race, religion, skin color, gender,language, size and others?
Why not learn from the spirit tree? To accept all differences and live harmony with loving kindness.
Always remember that our blood is RED, we breath in the same air, we shared the same spirit, the difference only your perception in mind.
Because we all share an identical need for love, it is possible to feel that anybody we meet, in whatever circumstances, is a brother or sister. No matter how new the face or how different the dress and behavior, there is no significant division between us and other people. It is foolish to dwell on external differences, because our basic natures are the same.
