True power, our power, is in our diversity and difference. It is not in the illusive power we chase in money and things. It is not in what we call unity. We are already unified through breath.
We want to deny our unity because we look different, act different and we believe we want different things.
The elk, oak and pine live together to create the mighty forests. The shark, dolphin and whales live together to create the wealth of the oceans.
The blue jay, hawk and robin sing together to create the melody of the sky. The lion, elephant and jaguar live together in the wonderment of the wild.
They all want the same things: food, protection for their young and the opportunity to move freely.
The animals do not blame or judge. They live without anger or fear. Are the animals just stupid? Or have we become too smart?
“Even though you may want to move forward in your life, you may have one foot on the brakes. In order to be free, we must learn how to let go. Release the hurt. Release the fear. Refuse to entertain your old pain. The energy it takes to hang onto the past is holding you back from a new life. What is it you would let go of today?”

If you would like to get together for affordable activities in our neighborhoods, that promote neighborhood Unity, cultural diversity, inclusive and diverse fun activities, like historical storytelling at the library, having festivals at parks, and block parties in neighborhoods.
We can also have events for just the ladies or men, like meet and greets, or for couples like, dinner and a movie … and anything else that looks like fun and helps people embrace diversity.
If you would like to commit to unity in the community, then please email us and we can give you more information on how. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
