We see the world divided—“Us” and “Them”.
It is the “Us” that stands illumined in the sunshine.
Darkness is not what we are about.
Darkness is left for “Them”.

We rage and fight, conquer and destroy,
In the belief that All should be “Us”.
We believe that force is necessary for conversion,
But force usually only brings resentment.

Throw off the shackles of light and dark!
They are the tools of bitterness and slavery.
Understand that All contain sun and shadow.
Life can only flow by allowing both.

We are not “Us” and “Them”.
We are All. We are One.
It is only when we see “Them” as “Us” will we have peace.
It is only when we see “Them” as “Us” will we be One.
