Friday Fun: Unity.

One thing that has amused us greatly as we've played around with this blog is the emergence of themes each week as we blog. This week, what came up again and again is the idea of unity. People uniting as one, merging parts of ourselves that we've tried to keep separate, circumstances aligning to unite us with a particular lesson, and seeing the unity of spirit and body - that's the recap of the posts this week. (You got all that, right?)

Today, we're taking it a step further and asking ourselves, what is the significance of unity? What difference does it actually make in our daily lives?

Barbara always asks the tough questions. I'm going to let her field this one this week.

Cute, E. Cute.

But seriously, I think for me, this week has actually been a continuation of another theme, letting things be easy. Unity makes things easier. Flow is the natural way of things, and to maintain separation is a lot of work. That's the lesson for me - the world won't come to a screeching halt if I let one part of my life spill over into another. Boundaries are helpful at times, of course. But are there times when boundaries become barriers? Yes, and that's when I need to ask myself what's on the other side, why am I reluctant to jump that barrier? For example, when I wrote about letting my clairvoyance and my Christianity languages peacefully coexist, I felt the whole idea of blogging get easier, lighter, and more fun because I allowed myself to use more of the tools I have at my disposal to express myself. I suspect that will make a significant difference in the authenticity of future posts, and I'm excited to see where that all goes.

Okay, okay...I can't resist...in response to Barbara's thoughts:  yes and...I gave a 'stand on my soap box' lecture to my children the other night about being united as a team and the benefits of working together. When managing a household, unity makes a tremendous difference. Unity helps all things feel easier, better, lighter, and more fun. Let's unite to make my life easier (at least that is what I asked of my children...).

So, when we decided to unite and write this blog together, you were just looking to make your life easier? I'm ok with that!

Yes! Isn't it all about me? I mean you? xoxo
