May we live in a world from today where we deeply respect one another's beliefs and ideologies.
May we live in a world from today where no-one takes the life of somebody else because they don’t have the same beliefs or ideologies.
May we live in a world from today where no-one need fear persecution because of what they believe or don’t believe.
May we live in a world from today where leadership is not about believing and demonstrating that our way is the only way, instead may we respect and honour our differences and find a way forward together.
Be the difference you want to see in the world.
My thanks to Paul Simbeck-Hampson who shared the Hindu proverb below on Google+ yesterday which inspired this post.
"There are hundreds of paths up the mountain,
all leading to the same place.
It doesn’t matter which path you take.
The only person wasting time
is the one who runs around the mountaintellling everyone that his or her path is wrong."
