Diversity and Inclusivity and The Statue of Liberty

Share it Please
Dear Friends,

The values we are embracing in February are Diversity and Inclusivity. Our national organization’s bylaws state that “We value, embrace and celebrate the individual uniqueness and contribution of all people as they express through differences of gender, ethnicity, culture, history, experience, talents and sexual orientation.

We include representatives from all our organizational constituencies in leadership, sacred service and decision-making.”

To view the video in this article on YouTube, click here.

How else can we embrace Oneness if not with acceptance, respect, and the understanding that each individual is a unique expression of one creative power? Individual differences include race, sexual orientation, gender, beliefs, politics, and much more. And celebrating diversity means allowing and welcoming it with an affirmative attitude.

This month’s messages invite us to contemplate the Oneness at the root of everything.

Since everything is an individualization of the Universal, every spark is alike in that it is divine. It is made of the same cosmic stuff, but no two sparks are identical. The process in Nature is the multiplication of an infinite variation of unified identities, no one of which is identical with the other, even though each and all are in the same field.

What role does inclusivity play in your life?

Warm regards,
Edward Viljoen

Seeing Good At Work
I have been through the book three times over three years, and am starting it again. This is not because the material in the book is not working, but because it is working so well! The weekly lessons keep me on track and focused on what is actually true and important, and help me experience more good in every area of my life. LS
