For those of you who are choosing to love then this post is for you. My first experience with racism was in kindergarten. I was sitting around a table with four other little girls. We were all different races. One little girl said that she wanted to go to a magical island but I couldn’t go because I was black. I didn’t understand at the time why that would matter and it did hurt me. Looking back on that situation now, I realize that she was probably just repeating what she had heard her parents say. I realize that hate is taught. I recently went to a Dr. Brian Weiss workshop. He said something that stayed with me. He said how could you hate or be racist toward another human being when you know that you’ve probably been that race or gender in your past lives. I realized that my soul is colorless and genderless. When I reincarnate, I’m not always going to be black and I’m not always going to be a woman. That night in my room, I looked at my DNA results. All of the past lives that I’ve seen correspond to my DNA results. I’ve seen myself as a native American woman, a Native American male, a white male, an Asian male, an African woman, and a African American woman. I don’t think that is a coincidence. I can’t hate on or turn my back on any race because I’ve been so many races in my past lives. I choose to love all races. Turning my back on any race feels like I’m turning my back on myself. I didn’t get to where I am today just by the support of black people. It took a lot of people of different races to get me to where I am. I don’t want to live in a world where black people only support black people, white people only support white people, or Mexicans only support Mexican people. If I’m going to change this world for the better then I have to be the change that I want to see. I want to see all different types of people helping each other. When a person really and truly loves themselves then how can that same person spread hate. When you put negativity out in the world, how can you expect to get only positive things? If a person is racist towards you, that doesn’t mean that you have to be racist towards them. That is more a reflection of their character than of your character. I am still an awesome person even if some people are racist towards me. Racism is a cycle of hate that that person will have to end themselves. I believe that a racist person is going to come back in their next life as the race that they hate. That way they can see what it feels like to be hated for the color of their skin. The cycle will keep repeating itself until the lesson is learned that hate is unnecessary. We are all human beings. The color of our skin doesn’t reflect our souls. The body is just a temporary house for our souls. Just like hate can be taught so can love. Love comes more naturally to humans than hate. I choose to love rather than hate. Thank you to all the people who have supported me and changed my life.
