Our view of the world, including all opinions and beliefs, is dependent on our level of awareness. The more we expand our consciousness the more inclusive we are in our way of thinking and being. By being inclusive we reflect acceptance, and are not threatened by people who are different from us. Instead, we use our wisdom to respect and practice reverence for all life and living beings because we understand that we are all a reflection and extension of oneness.
Ignorance and judgement limit our potential and ability to grow. These cut us off from life and cause us to act out in habitually unconscious ways. In such states we cause cause ourselves and others pain and suffering. Awareness frees us from such destructive reactivity that is based on nothing more than fear of diversity and the limitless expressions and potential that life has to offer.
