The Power Of Unity

Mindfulness is a form of meditation where you become nonjudgemental towards any thought that comes into your mind. It generally involves closing your eyes, focusing on breathing in and out and becoming a bystander towards the thoughts that invade your mind. Group mindfulness involves practicing the above, but with multiple people present at the same time.

Group mindfulness is a little different than mindfulness performed on your own, because practicing on your own requires a greater will and drive to actually sit down and perform the meditation. When in a group setting, there’s a higher tendency that you will perform mindfulness when others around you are doing it.

The power of unity really becomes evident during group mindfulness. When a leader guides the session, the act of hearing each other’s breathing in and out feels refreshing, as if everyone becomes synchronized. Unity is a great feeling, especially if you are battling loneliness or depression.

It’s very relaxing and exciting to partake in group mindfulness, especially when you are with people who you are comfortable with. There is something very calming about being together in a room full of people, practicing an exercise that is meant to calm you in the first place.

The room becomes filled with a feeling of positive energy; you can really feel it in your mind. Your mind becomes very relaxed as if washed over by a warm and gentle ocean wave. It can really set your day up nicely, especially if the group mindfulness is performed in the morning or even around noon.

If you have never performed mindfulness before, then start doing so on your own. After about 5-10 sessions, start seeking others who would be willing to partake in group mindfulness. The power of unity can really be felt during these sessions; there is nothing to lose, but everything to gain in regards to your mental health and overall wellbeing.

We All Are One

We Are The Same Person

He’s different. She’s different. You’re different. But we all are one: we are the same person. We were all created in His image: we were all given life in order to experience love. Some choose to divide themselves from love; it’s their free will. But some of us choose to build upon love: we are the ones who need to step up and spread it every chance that we get.

Spreading love is not hard for some of us: we use our hearts to spread joy, our ears to absorb joy, our eyes to spot joy, our mouthes to spit joy and our minds to entertain joy. And for all the people who don’t participate in love, it should always be our agenda to help them hop on board and join this lovely ride.

Never turn your back against those who choose to hate; they complement us. Through their polar opposites, we learn how to strengthen our hearts and fortify our mental and emotional well-being. Many people who hate just need an extended hand that will guide them back in the right direction.

We should always strive to guide ourselves and others in the right direction. President Trump is making America great again, but we are making this World great again. We are not against anyone: we do not despise hatred, racism or evilness. Rather, we view them as opportunities for change.

And these opportunities all revolve around becoming one under the Great Almighty who is all love. If we can help people in need tap into this love called the Holy Spirit, then we are proudly doing God’s work. God’s work doesn’t require a fancy degree: it requires the will to live a better life and to help others remain on this lovely ride called unity.

No matter how much division you hear about on the news or experience on a daily basis, step out of this world and envision yourself floating above planet Earth. What do you see? See how insignificant division and hatred appear from this high up? Before we were and after we will be, God’s creation will always remain one.

Now this does not mean that we cannot fall astray when we allow our guards down. Satan is always at work around the clock, trying to pull you off your track and make you stumble into uncertainty and confusion. But if you pray and ask God for guidance and love, He will not let you down, just as you should never let your lost brother or sister down.

The DSM Ready Community is one with humanity. Join this lovely free ride: there’s first class for everyone.
