I love the following quotes as they reflect a wonderful assortment of wisdoms from very different people, in different times and places. www.zippitynews.com
"I know that in the differences between us, there is strength. I know there is comfort, where we overlap." Ani DiFranco
"I see myself in all things and all people." Sanskrit phrase
"It is time for parents to teach young people early on that in diversity there is beauty and there is strength. " Maya Angelou
"Have only love in your heart for others. The more you see the good in them, the more you will establish good in yourself." Paramahansa Yogananda
"Different roads sometimes lead to the same castle." George R.R. Martin
"Our ability to reach unity in diversity will be the beauty and the test of our civilization." Mahatma Gandhi
Reflect for a moment. All offer us wisdom.
Gandhi tags the energy just right for what is still challenging us globally. Perhaps it always will. He speaks to the collective energy of being a civilization. He speaks to the intersection of Consciousness and Man. Civilization means the stage of human social development and organization that is considered most advanced. What do we celebrate as most advanced in ourselves? How civil are we? Sometimes I do wonder when I observe those around me, in my community and nation.
We are Consciousness and within that we hold many relationships in our being as human. We are individuals, each members of some genetic combination of family. We are also members living within boundaries of city, state, countries and beyond our borders, we are all Earthlings.
Mankind is evolving to more to appreciate the expansiveness of Consciousness. It is the neutral of All, the spectrum of what is common to all of us and what we are under the skin. The final frontier is not outside of us but inside waiting to be discovered, to unfold and express.
Make a moment to sit and allow yourself to access Heart Centered Awareness, the field of Unified Consciousness. Allow for any or all of the above quotes to be present in your field and notice what stands out. Who stands out. And continue to allow for whatever, whomever to be present and able to share from within this Infinite Sea of Potential their gift of awareness for you. Our answers to our known and unknown questions are there. Those answers that our minds may question but ring true deep inside and may challenge us to listen and follow. Allow the answer to be so loud you have to follow it. Allow it to bring you peace.
Asking questions and our willingness to listen is precious. Being present in this state and asking our questions allows us to notice ourselves separate from our own emotions clearly. Asking why. Leaving out the filter of judgment. Our willingness to listen, to hear from within neutral territory of no agenda, to another. To really hear and feel what another is saying under the rhetoric. Every side is a facet of the collective.
