What do we mean by Oneness? This world is diverse and full of uniqueness - there is individuality everywhere. But beneath the outer differences, which are superficial in nature, there is a quiet, enduring unity. We bleed the same, when injured. People of all nations have the same chemical constituents to their tears, and it is a universal phenomenon to cry when we are hurting or sad. Which community of people does not dance at times of celebration, and laugh at times of joy? And our essential aspirations join us together, like one tapestry of humanity - the wish for peace, safety, and the fulfillment of dreams to extend ourselves, in all ways possible. How different are we then? Is there not more that joins, than separates us?
If we could all appreciate our sameness, whilst also valuing our diversity, this planet would be a very different place. It's not just about tolerating differences, but cherishing them, as a stepping stone to greater acceptance and mutual regard.
To explore this theme of Oneness more deeply, and to learn ways to live it, come and join our conversations, musical moments, poetic renditions and meditations on Mon 9th Dec 2013.
