Change your perceptions, change your life

If I look at you superficially, we are different, and if I put my emphasis on that level, we grow more distant. If I look on you as my own kind, as a human being like myself, with one nose, two eyes, and so forth, then automatically that distance is gone. We are the same human flesh. I want happiness; you also want happiness. From that mutual recognitionw e can build respect and real trust for each other. From that can come cooperation and harmony, and from that we can stop many problems.
