Bridge the Gap
Science does not prove truth. Science, just like our personal experiences, guides us toward predictable outcomes (aka: stereotypes), but is only true until those hypotheses are proven false.
Take this beautiful planet. It is is filled with people who have different experiences that then serve to guide their opinions and their beliefs. Those beliefs are true “for them” until something happens to prove them “false". Maybe we meet someone who defies our expectations; maybe we are forced down an unexpected path only to find we were meant to be there, or maybe we simply keep the door of our hearts and our minds open a crack to allow in possibility and curiosity.
No matter what, beliefs will always only be true until they are not. Hopefully
this will happen time again and again over the course of your lifetime so that you may deepen your compassion and the depth of perception; broadening your field of view and allowing you to bridge the gap between the differences that only seem to exist.
In short, being “right” builds the ego. Being “wrong” builds humanity.
