In the course of totally unrelated research.

I came across an old Mayan phrase.

‘Lak’ech Ala K’in’

What a beautiful phrase.

In ancient Mayan.

It means simply.

‘I am you and you are me’

You are me.

I am you.

It means so many things.

It says respect me.

It says treat me.

As I treat you.

It says love me.

As I love you.

It says do onto me.

As I do onto you.

It says so much.

While saying so little.

We are all the same.

So be the best you.

That you want me to be.

How simple.

How easy.

Yet how so nonexistent.

That seems to be today.
