how I feel about life and people

Life is too short to think and worry about who is related to who and all the titles and relationships. Just be together. Be friends. Be family. Be happy. Love, laugh, sing, dance, smile, hug, enjoy :-) That's all that truly matters in this life. That is bliss <3
That, however, does not take away from the fact that there are "rules" like fidelity, loyalty and honesty for people, like those who are in romantic relationships, and things like that. As long as loyal and honest to yourself and those in your life, then be free as a bird, and the rest is just about togetherness and love and happiness. What I meant is that people can be friends, can be family, can all just be together. That's how I feel. Blood related or not, those people are my family. They are my people :-) And sometimes we dont have to wait until a blood relation or a ring on a finger. People can enjoy together, be together, be friends, be family, celebrate life together, and just love and be happy. And enjoy.
Bliss :-)

love and togetherness

One of the most powerful videos / messages I have seen.

All it comes down to is love. Doesn't matter the race, religion, ethnicity, culture, or gender.

It's just about people wanting to commit to eachother legally, spend their lives together in love and happiness.
Up until last year, gay and lesbians had the right to same sex marriage in California and it was a legal marriage. Last year, no thanks to Prop 8, this human right was taken away.

More than the actual issue at hand, hear what he says, and hear the message of love and togetherness.
Please watch this message because it's SO incredible and SO beautiful :-)

good story Mohit shared with me

One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. Finally he decided the animal was old, hat the well needed to be covered anyway and that it just wasn't worth retrieving the donkey. So he invited all his neighbours to come over and help him.

They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly. Then, to everyone's amazement, he quietened down. A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well and was astonished at what he saw. With every shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing something amazing. He would shake it off and take a step up. As the farmer's neighbours continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and trotted off!

Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The trick to getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up.
