We are divided because of our lack of understanding of how this all works. Do we create our own realities? The answer is yes. Are those realities effected and infected by our personal experience? The answer is yes.
You are no different than the guy in jail for armed robbery. You are the same as the lady standing on the street corner begging for money. It is your lack of wisdom that keeps you divided from reality. Your reality did not include these folks. You are selfish and have set yourselves above the people in need and you see yourself as better than them. It is much easier to accuse than to blend in and know that you are them and they you.
