Does unity mean being all the same? Or is it possible to find unity and strength not in conformity but in our diversity?
Many believe that we are spiritual beings having a material experience, that our shared spiritual reality transcends the material categorizations of race, gender, nationality, and the like. And yet those very things define our current reality. Not only do we each experience the world differently, but the world also treats us differently. Yet rather than causing division, could the diversity of each individual instead contribute to a more vibrant society? How can we use our differences not to divide us, but rather to bring us together? We are all the same, and yet we are not. How does that truth help us build better communities for us all?
Come join a different kind of conversation – one that welcomes every perspective in a search for the truths that unite us all – as we discuss the spiritual perspective offered by the Bahá’i Teachings on the strength of unity in diversity. Join us for a lively discussion as we explore how to recognize the value of our differences and at the same time build a world founded on the oneness of humanity.
“Your souls are as waves on the sea of the spirit; although each individual is a distinct wave, the ocean is one, all are United in God.” – Bahá’i Teachings
