In the contemplation of Unity this week I was reminded of a super silly game that myself and my chosen family “the Misfits” (don’t ask) use to the play on the regular. Around a table with a ton of food of course, we each would discuss what skills we would bring to the group’s survival in the event of a zombie apocalypse. Some folx had mad tent making skills, others could make a 5 course meal with berries and wild mushrooms, one could build a fire by rubbing two sticks together or some such nonsense, and others, like me, could lend some super stellar emotional support. Each person brought unique strengths, thus ensuring the survival of the group. Now although for the moment this is a totally hypothetical scenario, I tend to think this is what unity looks like. Unity is the opportunity for everyone to bring their own zombie apocalypse skills…I mean strengths and talents…to the table. For everyone to be authentically seen as integral parts to the survival of the whole. When each of us is free to live and express our true selves, then the movement of the whole is fluid, rich, and springing with possibilities. It is in this unity that both individual transformation and communal evolution can truly be found. So we may not be preparing for the zombie apocalypse, but we are striving for a world where the essence of this unity is lived out loud. So what will you bring to the party?
