The Essential Life Blog



Equality & tolerance are the pillars on which The Essential Life was built. We believe that, while humans are all different, unique & wonderful in our own, individualised way, we are also the same in our humanity. We believe that through the commonality of humanity, there is a oneness & a connectedness that binds us all together, despite the divisiveness of labels.

Here at The Essential Life, we also believe in the goodness & fairness of humanity. While there are those among us who are skeptical of tolerance, we believe that these are the people who we need to reach out to in an effort to start a conversation. A lack of tolerance is caused by a lack of understanding & when we approach one another with an open mind & an open heart, & we engage in a conversation in which we truly & completely listen to one another, we can create the ties that bind in order to build understanding.

Building a strong foundation of tolerance is a fundamental goal of The Essential Life. It is our sincerest hope that, by sharing the stories of the most marginalised members of our society, we will be able to foster connectivity & thereby, understanding for one another. In understanding, we have faith that we will find tolerance & equality - not just tolerance & equality for those of a different sexuality than what we might view as "the norm", but those of different religions, races, genders & all walks of life.

If you would like to help spark a conversation of connectedness & tolerance through the sharing of your story, please contact The Essential Life via email at info@TheEssentialLife.org, or submit your story here.
