As I listened to the presidential debate last night, I thought about how many people who have worked so hard and given so much so that we could have free speech, and the right to vote for women and minorities in this country and this world.

Many a battle has been waged over the issue of equality. As a Truth student, I know that we are all equal and yet there are still questions of equality that come up every day. Do the poor have the same rights as the rich? Do the uneducated have the same rights as those who are educated?

Immediately after September 11th, 2001, His Holiness, the Dalai Lama, issued a statement reminding all of us that, “The message we hear from the sources of truth is clear: We are all one. That is a message the human race has largely ignored. Forgetting this truth is the only cause of hatred and war, and the way to remember is simple: Love, this and every moment.”

All of the great Truth teachers teach this principle of Oneness. Inherent in the Oneness is a basic equality. After all, what part of the infinite Oneness can separate itself to be better than another part? We’re all unique and different. We can say that we’re all “created equal,” and yet, it’s more helpful to remember that we’re all much more than equal – we’re One.

The very idea of one person being less than another is insane – it’s an opinion. It could even be said to be a lie. A lie believed is a destructive force that can tear through our lives with devastating effects. And still – Love is the ONLY Power.

The Dalai Lama reminds me to live in the awareness that we are all of the same source, all One, united, interdependent, interconnected and equal. Remembering our equality is the way to Peace. Remembering our basic equality and reminding others of it, this is my commitment today.

As the countdown to our presidential election continues, let’s hold the high watch for our nation. Knowing that each person has the capacity to choose from Love and to make the loving choice. Love is what lifts us high. Love is our protector and our redeemer. Love never fails!
