Sides (mindfulness post for 1/26/17)

Posted on by Matthew Kramer-LaPadula

We are raised in a culture that ingrains distinctions: nationalities, ethnicities, religions, history, colors, sexuality. The problem is that if we focus on our differences, we lose site of our shared experience as humans. The fact is that there are not sides, enemies and friends. There are just friends: people who share the same experience but see it from differing perspectives.
