I woke up this morning thinking about equality in all things. The main thought on my brain was about the fact that I have several friends who are gay and hide that fact from their employers. It disheartens me to see that my friends whom I love feel the need to hide such a huge part of who they are based on the fear of not having a job, or a good job…
I started work thinking about this idea. And kind of decided that it wasn’t really something I wanted to talk about on my blog because of the negative content. As my day progressed, life happened and my thoughts turned to other things.
I was perusing Facebook just now and a gay friend of mine posted the following video:
Initially I was going to call bullshit because it looked fake to me. I’m glad I watched the video before opening my mouth. The video is a spin on what it would be like if a young lady was beat up for being “straight”. It was done in an effort to show how backward the thinking is to harass and abuse people whose sexual orientation is different from others. And what an eye opener it was for me.
Our souls – our higher self is not gender specific. They are pure energy. If that is true, then who we love doesn’t need to be gender specific either. The way that my energy feels toward your energy has absolutely nothing to do with our specific plumbing. It has everything to do with being kindred souls, having a love and compassion for one another, and finding a soul that yours can love openly and equally.
Thank you for letting me share my thoughts on this most touchy subject.
