How One Family, One Love, One World IS All Healing

How One Family, One Love, One World IS All Healing“I am part of all that I have met.”Alfred Lord Tennyson

Lately, I have been immersed in family functions, get togethers, exams with study times, hubby time, baby time, mommy time, brother time. The occupational hazard of being a Counselor is that I analyse everything..literally! ….. I kept observing my family and myself, like I probably would not have, if it hadn’t been for being so immersed in my family’s needs these past couple of weeks.

What I noticed was that when it comes to family, we go that extra mile and partake extraordinary measures to make sure they are fine. Whether we feel upto it or not, we try to make sure they are fine in all possible ways. We cant see any members of our family sad, upset, gloomy or disturbed. Least of all hurt physically or emotionally.
But, then this is the family we are related to, by birth or by heritage.

The other family I have been noticing is the family I am related to with loving humanity. Its the family that is essentially just like my blood family, just not so directly related but related more in the cosmic or soul sense. If you take the physicality of it, we are all made of the same flesh and blood. If we take the energy or the soul sense we are essentially made up of the same energy. We all have souls, feelings, emotions and are just as related to each other. Emotionally and soulfully we are infact ONE. Its the same Maker who has made us.

“I am saddened by how people treat one another and how we are so shut off from one another and how we judge one another, when the truth is, we are all one connected thing. We are all from the same exact molecules.” ~ Ellen DeGeneres

What worried me and upset me, is that even though we are all in fact ONE Family…Do we really treat or feel the same way about everyone of these family members?
Let me give you an example: An acquaintance of mine came down for a visit a while back. She was a bit disturbed when she arrived and was talking non stop about the events that transpired prior to her arrival to my place. Apparently, she had passed by a group of guys manhandling a girl. It was past 9p.m., so she and her hubby just drove past as fast as they could and came here. Making sure those goons didn’t see them. They kept saying ‘thank god we got out of there…otherwise we could have gotten caught in that fight…”
They actually looked at me and expected me to validate their running away from there. They looked at me as if to make me say or feel the same thing..that thank God they were fine. But, all I could think of and said was –
” Did you call the police? Did you get help? What happened to the poor girl?”
They just snapped and said “Who wants to call the police and get caught in the jumble? We just saved our-self..and that’s what is important.” I just asked one question- “What if that was your sister, wife, daughter or mother or any other family member of yours? Would you still run away and leave them there?”
They didn’t have an answer. I didn’t say anything further. Cause the rest of the evening they could make out how upset I was about the whole thing. Even as I type this I have tears in my eyes, wondering what must’ve truly happened to that poor girl.

This is exactly the problem with our society and more importantly us..after all, we make the society right?! Believe it or not, we do hold double standards.

Why cant we all think and feel for each and every person, each and every soul the same way we feel for our family?

I talk about positivity all the time on this blog….but I have realized that I need to be out there and do more positive. Not only me, but all of you need to do the same. We need to think and feel like every human being, every soul that walks this earth is related to us, IS our family member. When we can truly think and feel this way and live like ONE family, we will have truly healed our-self and those around us.

“When I meet people in different parts of the world, I am always reminded that we are all basically alike: we are all human beings. Maybe we have different clothes, our skin is a different color, or we speak different languages.  This is on the surface, but basically we are the same human beings.  That is what binds us to each other . – that is what makes it possible for us to understand each other and to develop friendship and closeness.” ~ the 14th Dalai Lama, accepting the Nobel Peace Prize

  1. I do believe that we are all connected, all brothers and sisters in the eyes of God. When Jesus told us to love our neighbors as ourselves, it wasn’t a suggestion, it was a commandment. Do we fail at this sometimes? Of course, because we are human and can get caught up in our selfishness. But, wouldn’t this world be heaven on earth if each and every one of us treated others as we would wish to be treated.
    Blessings, Zeenat!

  2. Yes, we are all one family on a human, spiritual and energetic level. Good reminder for us (me!) to reach out more in kindness and compassion. As we do so, more people will come to feel connected and help them act like family (connected in love). ❤

  3. Hi Zeenat,

    This is a wonderful post! I like the way you have linked our own family commitments, love that connects us naturally and be with our loved ones on priority basis when they need us more, with our societal responsibilities!

    We often ignore the fact that there are people out there, outside our house, on the road and everywhere around us who need our help and we turn our faces away, in an inhuman manner! Let’s face it, Zeenat…it is a selfish world we live in.

    People care more for their own safety and we have heard many such cases BUT even if one individual can feel that concern, even if one Zeenat gets tears in her eyes…that is enough because this world has been thriving on the goodness and kindness of just few people. Values are passed on in this manner and that has still kept them alive! And so healing continues…positivity is always rewarded. Even when we pass it on to one person, that is enough! We have done our share as there would be one more person to pass it on.

    Thanks for being so good, Zeenat…love you!

  4. Such an important message, Zeenat that needs to be repeated plenty of times. We are all one. We just have to put aside what the world has told us most of our life to realize that. Oh, and our egos too! If the world started caring more about others, we would live in a place of peace, compassion and harmony. I’m so glad you brought up this topic to inspire us to start living it. we can’t change the world but we can change our daily interactions with others.

    Only if we all could think in the same way, Zeenat, the world would be a lot better place to live in. I believe that we are all connected, no matter the difference in cultures or countries, or the difference in two cultures within our own country. If we can look at each other with compassion and kindness, putting aside our egos, which is more often than not is a difficult thing to do, then probably we won’t have as many problems that we have today. If we wish to be treated well, we have to treat others in the same way. Thanks and much love 🙂

  6. Zeenat, I completely agree with you. I too would have been upset. There’s a famous murder case from the 1960s in New York about a woman who was killed in the alley way between several apartment buildings one evening around 11 pm. Many neighbors heard her screaming for help but none of them called the police. It was so shocking that it was the subject of a television program. People were so disconnected, each living in there little apartment not knowing their neighbors that they had no compassion for this poor woman. Everyone expected someone else to call and didn’t want to get involved. I think if we were to think of everyone as a member of our family we would react differently.

  7. Wonderful message here Zeenat. It is so important to reach out beyond ourselves and think of others whether they are family, friends or unknown people. We are all connected and it would be a better world if we all remembered that. It is so sad to think that people don’t get involved. I agree, we could all do more.

    …yes, we could do more.

    Many communities have a ‘Citizen Patrol’ program set up. The police cannot be everywhere, so volunteer citizens ride two in a car tethered via radio to a dispatch. The two partners patrol the streets of their sector generally at night looking for any suspicious activity. I have done this myself in the past. When doing surveillance it is important to keep a good distance and try to be as inconspicuous as possible…can get a bit crazy out there…

    Another thing… this is often quoted by the police: “No good deed goes unpunished”.

    I experienced this about a year ago. This unconcerned mother was allowing her very little daughter to wander around the neighborhood totally unattended. When I became involved and made this known the moran of a mother was malicious towards me…but the end result has been that this little girl is never wandering around by herself any longer… 🙂

    And on an even happier note… All who read my comments should go and see the movie ‘Particle Fever’ This is primarily the story about the remarkable 10,000 scientist (people just like you and I) from over 100 countries throughout the world in search of the origin of the universe via The Large Hadron Collider (the largest and most expensive experiment by mankind). It is mentioned in the movie that traditional mortal enemy countries have their scientist working side by side on the project… 🙂

    Thank you my sister Zeenat for this…
