THE MIND OF EQUALITY
Posted on Aug.24.2011 @ 06:47AM EDT by chontri

The mind of equality sees
The tall tree is tall, the short tree is short.
The tall tree is equal to the short tree. Why?
Because they both are trees.
And it makes no preferences with love or hate.

The mind of equality sees
The big mountain is big, the small mountain is small.
The big mountain is equal to the small mountain. Why?
Because they both are mountains.
And it makes no preferences with love or hate.

The mind of equality sees
The old man is old, the young man is young.
The old woman is old, the young woman is young.
The white man is white, the white woman is white.
The black man is black, the black woman is black.
All of them are equal. Why?
Because they all are human beings.
And it makes no preferences with love or hate.
