I was listening to a Norman Lear (television writer and producer – All in the Family, Maude, etc – and founder of PFAW) interview on NPR the other day. He was asked “If you had a bumper sticker, what would it be?” His answer? “I’m just another version of you.”
This slogan is a powerful reminder that we are all One . . . just alternate versions of the One. When someone upsets you, when you are “certain” that you are “right” or “unique”, remember that you are just another version of the same Being. The kindness and compassion this elicits is contagious.
