Monthly Theme: Living Everyday Wonder – Community
Weekly Topic Title: Week 2 – Into We See
A richer greater experience of life awaits us when we enter into common-unity with those around us. When we train ourselves to see the big picture, we have a greater experience of humanity.
A One Sentence Affirmation:
I see Spirit in everyone I meet.
Monthly Theme Summary:
Community is the invisible membrane that we all live inside. Community is where we play out our lives on a larger scale – both consciously and unconsciously. It’s the first circle in what ultimately creates our larger societal structures beginning with family, all the way through to the culture of a country.
At the micro level, it is our individual choices that influence not only our own experience, but the character and subtext of our community. The beautiful alchemy of community unfolds when we come into realization that through our spheres of influence (our communities of concern), we intersect with the greater whole each and every day.
This is the point of power, when we begin to make active decisions about how we wish to be in community, and actively welcome those we previously may have been unaware of. This is how our diverse world becomes a living gift to us all. Celebrate December in a full awareness of our unique gifts, while seeing the gifts of those around us, as we enter into a bigger idea of community.
Summary of Today’s Topic:
Who we acknowledge as being part of our community is a vital part of creating community. When we see people in our community as “outside” or fail to see them at all, we limit the possibilities for our greater whole. Whatever the perceived “difference,” there is value in making genuine connections with all people.
Science of Mind calls for us to recognize wholeness – Spirit Itself – expressing through all things. If it is here, it is to be known. If there is no separation, then the only real separation is my ego self-creating that illusion. Science of Mind is the compassionate practical application of seeking to see that wholeness through all experiences, including expressions of humanity itself.
“We envision a world in which we live and grow as One Global Family that respects and honors the interconnectedness of all life; a world where this kinship with all life prospers and connects through the guidance of spiritual wisdom and experience.” From the CSL Global Vision as stated in the Organizational Design Model.
[Community] is like the Bodhisattva belief that not one of us can enter Nirvana until all others have gone before us. Block, Peter. Community (p. 30). Berrett-Koehler Publishers. Kindle Edition.
