The Three Complexities - Revisited

I want to get back to this theme again, because all three of the complexities keep being relevant.



In the news.



In our lives.



In our families.



So again, they were:



Our relationships – our bodies – and our finances



We have been thrust into a horrible awareness of the relationship of our brothers and sisters with the police lately.  The news is full of Minneapolis, but hey, this has been going on for too long, and in far too many other places.  



Remember Rodney King?  “Why can’t we all just get along?”  Why not, indeed?  



Seriously.  WHY NOT?



I am a mongrel-mix of European descent.  Pretty much every country north of Spain and west of the Ukraine.  Therefore I am considered white.  



I grew up in L.A., and I tested my boundaries growing up, so I became familiar with dealing with the police in my teens.  



I was even grabbed by the scruff of my neck and hauled up against a cop car once.  But I can say with all the clarity of hindsight that I never feared that I would die from this or any other of my urban mishaps.



I cannot imagine the horror that our fellow American citizens have to live with, simply because of the color of their skin.  I have black friends that I love, and I don’t honestly know how they’re able to drive an automobile these days without some level of fear and trepidation.



Didn’t Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. address this in 1967?  Isn’t that like 53 years ago?    



Our relationship, with every single ever-friggin’ human being on this planet, should be based on the content of one’s character.  



In the absence of that certain knowledge we must remember that we are ONE RACE.  And that race is HUMAN.  



For the inhumane and the prejudicial?  News flash: your DNA is virtually identical to every single soul on the planet.  You are ultimately hating yourself by hating others.  



Relationships.  If you would profess to love: a spouse, a child, parents, siblings, and all the out-branchings of family?  You know love.  



Practice simple kindness to people you don’t know.  



Every good thing, including the celebration of simple abundance, begins with this idea:



LOVE IS THE ANSWER.



Further, WE CAN KNOW TOLERANCE AND ACCEPTANCE IF WE WANT IT BADLY ENOUGH.



Even if you don’t agree with what I’ve written, you have to admit you don’t want your kids to grow up hating.



Do you?
