Lines in the Sand

Long ago and yesterday, we thought the way to bring order was to practice an “eye for an eye.” What you do to me, I do to you. Perhaps this approach to life indicated our first discovery of karma or was it the discovery of our oneness with each other? That what we do to another, we do to ourselves. 

One great truth prevails…we are one with each other. Vengeance binds us to one another and so does kindness and compassion. Vengeance blinds us, and kindness opens our eyes. An eye for an eye draws a line in the sand and dares you to step over. Kindness and compassion draw a line as well, but it is a circle and within it is the human family. 

Choose-eye for an eye, karma or oneness. When our eyes are open, we see each is an opportunity to discover the greatest truth…we are one.
