All of us carry a message that the world needs, those messages come in different sizes, shapes, colors and every one of them is essential to the human experience. The homeless man on the corner is a message. The rich woman driving around in her car with tears in her eyes is a message. The little girl in the park running around chasing her puppy is a message. A group of old man sitting under a tree playing dominoes is a message. A young couple in love is a message; the man who walks into a convenience store with the intention of robbing it but instead end up shooting and killing the clerk is a message. The young woman that recites poetry every Friday night at the pub down the street is a message. The young man who wears a hoodie with baggy pants, but never miss an opportunity to show kindness toward someone who is a message. As long you can see it, or can hear it’s a message that was meant for you. Now how you internalize those messages is your human experience, nothing is random, because you’re not random, you are significant, you are part of a masterpiece, and you are a message that the world needs. We all have a part to play in this life, so become conscious of all things. Anything that evokes an emotion in you, rather it’s positive or negatives it’s a message. When you wake up in the morning your mindset should be as follows “What will I learn today, and what should I teach today.” If you realize how important you are than you will also realize how everyone else is just as important, even if it doesn’t make sense or you don’t find it agreeable, doesn’t mean it’s irrelevant. Every act has a domino effect. We are the bible, we are the Koran, and we are the teaching of Buddhism, we are the words of Krishna’s. We are the poetry’s of life the spoken words of the universe. We are the energy that is constant, we are the living message. We are the human race, not the color of our skins, religions or social class. In this great galaxy we were given one planet, one race and every one of us is a representation of one word to create one sentence, for one message. All of us are teachers and students, so let us learn to value each other more because that is all we have and that is all we were given is each other.
