“If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.” – Mother Teresa
When we become lonely or discontented with life, it’s often because we have lost our connection to one another. Overtime, our ego and judgemental thoughts can separate us and disconnect us from the truth.
It’s easy to do. We all want the best in life and we want to complete our goals, but in building our dreams, teamwork is always necessary. If our plans do not include working together for the whole, then we may find ourselves standing alone at the end of the line.
To accomplish most things in life, we need to be working with a group mind. Group mind constitutes harmony of the highest order, without individual ego’s getting in the way. Each person in the group honours the gifts and abilities of others, and knows how to complete the piece of the puzzle that belongs to them.
Because we seldom have these thoughts of unity, we can become lost in a world of self desire and believe we do not need the assistance or connection to others. This attitude creates discord around us and we may feel overwhelmed with our load or feel others do not support us.
When we allow ourselves to consider the feelings of others and how they view the world, it will give you a much better understanding of how you relate to them and how you can work together to achieve a common goal.
When I honor the spiritual connection that grows from an offering of trust, respect, kindness and affection for others, I find that I receive the same in return. This desire to be loved and nurtured is within us all and when we allow ourselves to connect, we begin to flow with each other and receive.
Making these choices everyday with one another is how we will connect back to the whole. If we decide our way is the only way or insist on controlling everything in life, we will lose this precious gift of oneness.
“I define connection as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.” – Brene Brown
None of us can really know our own beauty or perceive a sense of our own worth until it has been reflected back to us in the mirror of another loving, human being.
