"We are one human being wearing countless masks. When all the masks are stripped off, what remains is essence, the soul, the divine spark." That's a beautiful truth written by Deepak Chopra and one of the constants that I kept thinking about as I made my around Israel for ten days. Visiting a region replete with so much history, dignity, magic, mystery, and spirituality was an extraordinary experience and one that I am still processing.

When you find yourself looking at others and their different ways because of culture, religion, sexual orientation, color, race, ethnicity, class, gender or titles think about an eternal truth: we are one. Strip away all the superficial layers and masks that we carry and that many times serve to separate us from each other and a new perspective at looking at the world and yourself emerges.
