In these times of forgotten feelings, my inspiration stems from the spirits that once walked among us, teaching the universal truth that, in the eyes of the Creator, we are all the same. Their messages of love and compassion, echoed across centuries, seem to have slipped away from our hearts.
Yet, I hold onto faith that, regardless of our beliefs, we can evolve through unconditional love—the timeless principle found in the golden rule: to treat others as we wish to be treated. This simple yet profound truth serves as my inspiration, urging a collective return to the virtues that bind us all. So be it!
