An anthropologist proposed a game to the kids in an African tribe. He put a basket full of fruit near a tree and told the kids that who ever got there first won the sweet fruits. When he told them to run they all took each other’s hands and ran together, then sat together enjoying their treats. When he asked them why they had run like that as one could have had all the fruits for himself they said:
''UBUNTU, how can one of us be happy if all the other ones are sad?''
'UBUNTU' in the Xhosa culture means: "I am because we are"
A friend has this included on her email signature. The story is so powerful I had to share it. The magnificence in this is that a culture has a word based in their philosophy that embodies the oneness of consciousness. This is the foundation of Spirituality.
There is no competition in Spirituality. There is an acceptance of differences, an encouragement of self-empowerment, and a love of all that is. I realize that this is pretty heady stuff. And, there has been many a heated discussion about the acceptance of a rapist or the idea that we, with all our differences including violence, are all a part of the same consciousness or energy. These deliberations will go on for a long time, longer than this body will be on Earth. And that is good.
I have said, many a time, this is a teaching planet and all paths lead to enlightenment. (Some are just longer than others.) I am not excusing violence or even meanness. We are personally responsible for our individual behavior. I am saying that being on both sides of every experience holds lessons. We have all seen huge healing in forgiveness. We have experienced great triumph in teamwork. We have all shed a tear at the beauty of a runner stopping to help up a competitor. He or she may have not won the race, however in reality they both won and taught something greater that resides in the heart.
This brings us back to this beautiful story and our love of competition. Many would say that competition increases sales, grows companies and makes countries stronger. Maybe. But, it is kindness and love that holds humanity together. That goes way beyond company and country. There is a music movement around the world called “Playing for Change.” If you haven’t seen it, do yourself a favor and Google it. It is connecting musicians around the world. Most will never meet, yet they play their part while listening to the music and the musicians that are already recorded. A piece of music is literally built around the world. That is also a magnificent example of oneness of consciousness and “I am because we are.”
Yes, each of us is unique and complete within ourselves. And, we are connected in so many ways; physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually to each other and something greater than ourselves. When we hold love, forgiveness and grace of self and then hold the same of others, we are stronger, happier, healthier and at peace.
Love and blessings to you,
