To be united is the opposite of being divided. If we look to the root of all beings, there is much common ground. We all need to feel safe, to feel loved, to feel valued. When we do not, we manifest our fears in different ways. Sometimes we turn those deficiencies inward, being unkind to ourselves. Sometimes we turn those deficiencies outward, being unkind to others.
Owning and integrating your own divisions of light and shadow allows you to model unity as you engage in community. May we each walk the path of presence, continually cultivating unity within, carrying wholeness into the world at large.
In mindful presence,
Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing,
there is a field.
I'll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass,
the world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase each other
doesn't make any sense.
