If there was one thing I could wish for this world and it would happen, it would be equality. Not just of the races but equality in its truest sense. Every single living thing would have enough. Enough to live happily, peacefully and safely. The wealth of the world would be distributed equally; we would all strive for peace, fulfilment and happiness. We would work to keep each other alive. And we would create to keep ourselves and each other happy. We would embrace the true essence of community and love.
Girls would marry when they wanted to. And they would marry whomever they wanted to. There would be no expectations, more a surety that everyone is self-determined and accepted for who they are. Conflicts would be resolved peacefully; ego would always take a back seat as we strive to embrace each present moment. And the opportunities and beauty that each moment carries within it.
Families would exist but with the strong awareness that family is not restricted by blood. All life, every species, would co-exist on the planet, interconnected and functioning as one entity. Mothers would not sell their daughters’ virginity to buy food and then blackmail them emotionally; breaking their spirit and their dreams with every word, every condemnation that they were not enough.
Wives would be respected by their husbands; the only duty being owed, reciprocated by the husband. Love, respect, harmony. These words and the inherent actions they suggest would form the foundation of every union. And every living thing could unite with whomever they chose; respecting the other as they would expect themselves to be respected. There would be no misguided judgement; liberty for all to be whomever they truly are. We would be blessed by the authenticity of each other and learn from one another accordingly.
There would be no violence, no greed, no hate, no jealousy, no rivalry. No dictatorship, fascism, capitalism, false promises. There would be no poverty, no injustice, no criminality. No rape of the body, the mind, the soul of another. There would be no chemicals, no temptation to consume more than what the earth provided, no need for anything outside of ourselves and our community. No fear, no nightmares, no abuse, no scandal, no reprisal. There would be no cages, not for bodies, minds, souls, other species.
However, there would be peace, prosperity, happiness, authenticity and love.
There would be enough.
And every thing.
