“Welcome aboard. We have
19 attendants on board this
aircraft who speak 13 different
languages, so if you need an-
ything, please let us know.” I
was on a business trip to a very
diverse, cutting edge city - Du-
bai. Once I reached there and
took car service, checked in to
the hotel, had dinner, went to
the offices the next day, etc., I
was astonished at how many
different nationalities were
present - living and working
there. People from the Phil-
ippines, South Africa, France,
Brussels, England, Brazil, In-
dia, Lebanon, Syria, Pakistan,
Iran, I’m pretty sure some-
one said Uzbeskistan, United
All are different. All have
cultural differences, religious
differences, social differences,
economic differences, politi-
cal differences. Yet, it struck
me that all have the same basic
needs. In these times, I think it
is important to look at what is
common among all of us, rath-
er than what is different. We
need to eat. We need to drink
water. We need to breathe
fresh air. We need to rest and
sleep. Our bodies need to
function in a certain way. All of
us. It doesn’t matter where we
live, what we wear, how much
money we have, what work we
do, what car we drive, where
we have dinner. Simplifying
what is common is going back
to what connects us as human
beings. Celebrating diversity
by embracing commonality.
Once we understand this in
a big way, we can see that this
all relates back to what we have
in common on another level,
and that is, compassion. We
can visualize the center of this
at the heart center. What con-
nects us as human beings is
the energy here – the center of
the connection to other beings
– caring and compassion. In
our yoga practice, this energy
center is called “anahata”. We
learn that balancing this en-
ergy brings us love which is a
unifying force among diversity.
And once we center in on this
feeling of love, compassion is
born. Having compassion for
others softens our humanity
and allows us to give.
When you see someone out
on his/her luck – even one
who seems “out of it” – know
that we are made of the same
stuff and the circumstances
that put him/her there could
be beyond his/her control.
When you see an elderly per-
son a little confused or taking
long at the ATM, be patient.
When you see a child acting
out in a peculiar way, let it be.
Know and feel that we are one
no matter what our differences
may be.
During this holiday season,
take the time to think about
the connections, not the sep-
arations. Living life from the
energy center of love brings
forth kindness, generosity and
respect and inspires the same
in others. Let us be an inspi-
ration to all to exhibit “loving
kindness” and live according
to the principle that all of life is
May you be happy. May you
be free. May you be grateful.
May you let go of things that do
not serve you. May you have
inner peace.
