A Thought-Experiment
What if each of us has done it all…
in countless past lifetimes,
we’ve been born on every continent,
as every creature imaginable,
even sand, water, and mountains,
become comfortable in several genders,
all tribes, ethnicities, and religions,
been incredibly successful at every profession,
and also experienced profound failures.

What if we’ve crossed off a billion bucket-lists,
and now have no ambitions grander than
being aware that our true self looks through 
the eyes of every ‘stranger’ we encounter,
kindness is the very air we breathe, and
laughter is our overflowing bank account.

What if each of us has done it all…
