At first glance, this woman and this man are walking in opposite directions. But when we look closer, we realize that they are walking on the same and unique Path.
There is only one way to climb this hill, from the city of Safed in Israel. All people need to walk the same Path because there is just no other option.
I believe the same occurs in relation to Humanity: we think that we all have “our way”, a specific way, and we don’t need to pay attention to other people’s way. But we are wrong: as we are all part of the same Humanity, we obviously share a common destiny.
On a physical level we share the same planet. However, some egocentric politicians with only a short-term vision of the future give priority to their personal – and usually financial – interest at the expense of the Humanity. I can’t believe them to be stupid when they neglect to face climate challenge and work towards preventing a global crisis where there is no winner. But maybe I am too naive….
On a moral and ethical level, we share the same essence as Human beings. We all belong to the same Humanity. Of course there are divergence of opinions, ideas and feelings, but we are all in essence drops born from the same cloud that fell on Earth through the same rain. Each drop fell in another place, one on a mountain and another in a valley, each one appears to follow a different path but at the end the goal is the same: all the drops will dissolve in the same Ocean.
How shall I put this practically? We may apparently belong to different races and Nations, we may be Caucasians, Africans, Asians or a mixed breed; we may be Jews or Arabs; we may identify with one gender or another; but none of those identifications and identities should predominate over an upper, essential and fundamental identity: we are Human Beings, we belong the she same Humanity, and we share the same Destiny.Back to Gallery
