A Power to Grow From
Unity is a power to grow from, it’s love and creation that connects and transforms endless aspects of life. Even in the event of something falling apart, the pieces are uniting with the rest of the unknown to cycle back again and give purpose to what was. Reflection is a form of unity, bringing past into present creating the vibration of your future. These forms of unity are constant and natural for the most part, but the ones that are needed to heal the collective are the ones individuals create with each other. For we each are the manifested filters of perception, and through us experiences are formed. Our reality is nothing more than echoes and vibrations of all that we cast out from within. Like ripples from rain on the pond, we send out many waves that bump and merge with other frequencies and bounce back to us to accept or resist. When we unite, these waves move in the same direction and peace washes over us. We no longer appear to be single drops falling into a sea of misunderstandings, but become a waterfall of strength. Of course as everything begins from within, however, the unity of one’s male and female energies must have a balance to create a foundation to make an external bond every lasting. Otherwise we can easily crumble and be thrown down stream into a new lesson of self reflection, taking us away from what we thought was a path of personal truth. If we could move from the ego mind of knowledge and unite with the spirit heart of creation our society would have a healthier foundation for individuals to build themselves upon. Love for ourselves unites us to the love from others.

Unity is a result of harmony and accord, oneness. To accomplish unity throughout humanity, we must all be in agreement. Sounds impossible...but it's actually quite simple. With so many different truths from so many different cultures, we are creating discord and defense. Every bit of information on this earth is expressed through the perspectives of humans. That filter, discounts pure truth. To claim truth is arrogant. To claim possibility is respect. A perspective is never wrong, nor is it ever right. When the emotional wall is up humans tend to feel threatened by the view of others. Perhaps this is because our individual vessels were intended to survive and multiply while operating with a perception that was formed on mimicry. When we take time in solitude and wonder, we can really get to know ourselves. This allows us to customize our perception through forcing thoughts and possibilities into new pathways in our brain via synapses. Once we realize that the opinions of others are opportunity for growth, the feeling of defense will subside. Unity of humanity isn't the concept of each individual being the same....it's transforming the idea of truth into possibility. We can keep our uniqueness and be one unit.

The Greatest Speech Ever Made
My View from Here,
| || |
I am here at the lake staring at the beauty of my simple life, reflecting on my own personal UNITY. Through the lens of my experience and the wisdom of my soul I have observed unity inside & around me for over half a century. In the past 3 weeks, I have been blessed with enough 'free' time to truly pause. I am discerning & compartmentalizing the energetics of life & lessons and growing more fascinated with the subtle inner workings of how life experience metabolizes into thought and/or action. Even idleness is a proper action if it is done with purpose & meaning.
Whenever I require advice or guidance, I first go to my Soul. I consult my A-Team as Linda Kavelin-Popov calls it (Angels, Ancestors & spirit Animals). I liken the process to retreating where I go deeply into reflection & reframing, like a good old fashioned defrag. A computer term that according to Wikipedia means "In the maintenance of file systems, defragmentation is a process that reduces the amount of fragmentation. It does this by physically organizing the contents of the mass storage device used to store files into the smallest number of contiguous regions (fragments)." I take both mental (silent) and physical retreats as in the case of internal unity and it has been my process for over 30 years. I trust it as a critical step to help sort out what's really going on?, what is in my heart & head. An assessment and reviewing of an experience to discern what is real process became an integral part of how I AM. And more importantly, I sort out fact from assumption and what is within my control? With a clearer understanding, I take what I know about my reality and to enter a sacred state of reverence. Recently someone invited me to "move on" with something. In their idealistic hope for unity, they do not yet know the way grace brings teachable moments to me. This is an experiential strategy that has a power to defrag: tap, sort & reframe order.
Even before I knew of it, I saw that my uniqueness was worthy of protecting. Since 19, I was aware that the unity humanity craved was with the soul. Each of us must find out own. I was consciously testing the laws of attraction in 1980s, although there was no name for it then and Unity and I have manifested an amazing life. My partner is my best friend, I have an amazing family, in-laws too, my community is made up of people who bring out the best in me, I am doing what I love & loving what I do, I am finding my tribe & open to the future that unity will bring.
Unity can be courageous work. It might require sacrificing one thing for something better. In our current climate, I am finding it often means being in a constant cycle of teachable moments where sometimes I am the one smoothing the waters & sometimes I"m pushing through the roaring storm or painfully detaching from someone or something toxic. Sometimes Unity means you are walking alone in the world.
