We learn to love by daily meeting new people who show us how beautifully perfect diversity is. While living in a world of constant hate and war we can easily get corrupted by these destructive feelings and get covered in darkness.
We were thought that only love could overcome hate but we somehow keep forgetting this while growing older – but do we become wiser too? If we don’t know how to love people –because life’s kicks make us doubt everything that we experience and everyone we meet –how can we possibly consider ourselves wise?
- A wise person knows that life is full of different challenges. Some might indeed seem impossible to overcome but we should always keep in mind that we are strong enough to pass any test life puts us through.
- A wise person also knows that we are all unique and that generalization as well as stereotyping are the biggest sins one could ever commit. We stop people before they even start showing us who they are. We put them in boxes and miss the chance to discover their beautiful souls and by doing this we only decrease in love, when we should actually rise in it.
I often wonder why people travel to different places if they are not ready to meet their locals and learn more about their traditions including respecting them. Differences between the cities of this world are not only found in their monuments or buildings but mostly in the communities of these places.
20 years ago, shortly before her death, Diana, Princess of Whales, confirmed that she had always chosen to follow her heart and not go by some rules of a book. And by this, she teaches us that we should leave our mistrust at the door and start seeing with our heart instead of our eyes and love – believe me since I’ve started doing this my world has become a better place.
