I want to walk with you. I want to walk with you in the woods. No distractions, surrounded by nature. A place that I know we are both comfortable. I want you to know that I don’t want anything from you. No expectations. Only hopes. The hope to become friends and to gain a deeper understanding of you and a deeper connection with a fellow human being. The hope that may be, just may be, you want to get to know me too. The hope that we can drop our walls and experience each other as any two souls should and could.
I don’t know you, but I want you to know that I love you just as you are and I want to know everything about you, anything you are willing to share.

If everyone shared this view and regarded everyone else in this manner, perhaps we could evolve as a species.

Imagine laying in a field under the stars, shoulder to shoulder, with someone you deeply care for. Imagine that feeling, the closeness, the warmth-physical and emotional, and the vibration of joy your spirit feels with that person. Now imagine sharing that same warmth with everyone you meet. Is it so impossible?

Think about it. This person, this random stranger, has been through so many of the same experiences you have. You could bond on those experiences and share new ones with each other. You could connect and grow based on the things you talk about.

Remember that time when you were *insert age* and you fell off of *insert noun* and you got *insert injury*? Yeah, they remember when something like that happened to them too.
Remember when you were *insert age* and you fell madly in love with *insert name* only to find out that they didn’t feel the same? That too they remember.

Think of all of the knowledge you could gain and the joy you could spread by opening your heart and your life to those around you.

A smile to a stranger on the street has such a profound effect on their day and knowing that you caused someone to smile, even for a minute causes you to have more happiness as well.

Key things to remember:

1) You get what you give. The same rule of Karma applies to human relationships. You give a smile and, generally, you get a smile in return.

2) Always be kind to everyone you meet. You never know what they are going through. (Plato)

3) Show the people you love that you love them. The more you care for them, the more they will care for you.
