Equality and fairness may differ.

Please reflect and share. How does this play out for you?

We all deserve to be treated equally. No one is less worthy than another. In interconnected Creation, we are all divine and perfect. We all merit love, respect, and the fulfillment of our needs.

Yet true equality almost never occurs. Somehow things seem to be imbalanced. This can happen for both good and bad reasons. Greed and prejudice can result in folks being slighted. Extreme need may also result in some receiving more than others.

Any parent can of more than one child can attest that what is fair may not always be equal. But ideally we all have what we need to thrive.

Today’s message invites me to consider the concept that life treats me fairly, that I have what I need to craft a good life for myself. I may have different raw materials than others do to work with, however what I have is tailored by creation to offer me the best opportunities to learn and thrive. Along the way, I can share in my gifts to benefit others, too. I am part of an interconnected web of resources to help us all receive what we need.

How about you? What’s your take on equality?
