Maybe together

June 9, 2021

For RDP: Our prompt for today is “together”. What does the word mean to you?

What “together” means for me is unhappiness because together is pretty much the exact opposite of the way we live on this world. Apart… Separate… Disorganized… Unbalanced… Individually…Disconnected… That’s us.

And when you’re not together then what? Wars… Violence… Thoughtlessness… Uncaring… Anger… Greed… Sound familiar?

Don’t look to me for answers because the only thing I know to do is recognize everyone I come in contact with as the same as me. The same body*, the same fears, the same yearnings, the same suffering. How do I want others to treat me?

Do the people I associate with, and the people I vote for, feel the same way?

“If you hear the song I sing you will understand (listen).You hold the key to love and fear all in your trembling hand. Just one key unlocks them both it’s there at your command.”

* Ok, there are a lot of better bodies out there than mine so maybe this one doesn’t count. But you get the idea.
