You belong.You belong on this earth, you belong in the room. You belong to humanity and you belong to everything good and true. You belong. It is truly amazing how we can fool ourselves (or let other things fool us) into believing that we do not belong. We can let every experience we have ever lived through stain our certificate of belonging to be so dark that we can’t remember what it says or what it means.You belong, and so does she. You belong and so does he. You belong, and so do we. You belong.An easy way to shift our belief of not belonging is to step back and make room in the circle for others who do not feel as if they belong. Somehow when we remind others, and treat everyone in our life (even if they are only in our life for a few minutes) as if they absolutely belong, it reminds us that we belong too.So look around at those whose hands and heads are hanging down, and bring them into the circle of belonging. SMILE at the people, SEE them for who they are, SEARCH fiercely to find the most beautiful and unique things in them that they have forgotten and point those things out to them, and most of all, seek for things that are the same as you, and draw those things deeply into your heart and never forget them.

It’s kind of a little magic trick. When you treat her, and him, as if they belong, somehow you will forget that you got tricked into believing that you don’t belong.

You remember what you already knew. holding handsWe all belong. . .

and we are all so very very very loved.
