One group of people I associate with associate with many paths. The group is comprised of about twenty people. Among the group are five African-American, a couple from the Philippians, one person from India, Kuwait, China, Thailand, and the rest appear white like me. My Mother is Finnish and Father is a mix of Swedish, German, and Scottish. My Maternal Grandparents immigrated from Finland and Great Grandparents on the other side.
If you are not Native American, you are here because of immigration. In the process of immigration, the Native population was slaughtered and displaced, and I am extremely sad about that. I occasionally visit an area where during the late 1800s; many natives were interned and died, and if I wander off the walking path to the interior of the island, I can still be struck with an overwhelming sadness and many others experience the same.
We cannot go back and undo what was done, but if we all live together peacefully and care about one another today is a way to heal. I enjoy meeting people from different cultures so I am for immigration. The group has an equal number of men and women, and some are couples but most are not. Some fit the category of LGBTQ and some do not. Some are fit and some not so, just as some are religious and some not. Those who are religious follow the earthly religions of Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism, and Islam, and we get along. We care about one another and have fun together, and such is the Holy Way.
Here is a verse from the Veda for people to live together in peace.
The highest knows the thoughts in the mind of everyone and brings the air to move the thoughts higher, and a guide to the highest is a kind and peaceful person devoted to caring for others.
