What do you see when you see another human being?

Do you stop at the superficial: their hair color, skin color, or the clothes they're wearing?

Or do you instead take the time to look beyond what is on the surface, and see them and love them for who they really are: someone with hopes and dreams; someone with a mother, father, and family; someone who is an irreplaceable part of the fabric of the universe, just like you?

For centuries, we've been taught to divide ourselves, focus on the differences between people, and ostracize those who don't fit the mold. Wars have been waged over even "invisible" differences — such as religion — to the point where we stop looking at each other as brothers and sisters, and instead become enemies.

But what if we instead recognized the power of unity?

What if we recognized that, underneath the labels society gives us, we were all the same?

In this incredibly moving video, artist and writer Prince Ea, recites his powerful poem of unity, featuring people and families of all different ethnicities, colors, and sizes. After all, finding love shouldn't be limited to the color of our skin.

The underlying message is beautifully simple: it's time to strip away the labels and focus on what unites us.

Mindvalley's latest FREE course, Extraordinary By Design, unveils a fundamentally new way to think about your life and your goals, including those related to love, your relationships, and connectedness to others. 

When you look at your goals as tools to get the experiences that make you happy, grow rapidly, and contribute to the world — you can then break your life down into 12 distinct areas.

These 12 areas are so interconnected that when one is lacking, it will pull down the others. But when you elevate one, it with elevate your entire life.

This is how you become Extraordinary By Design.
