One Family

You live in ONENESS. This means that you are part of the Whole to which everything else also belongs. All beings, all people, all life are the ONE – expressing itself through multiplicity. This means that every being, all people, are your brothers and sisters, parents and children, aunts and uncles, nieces and nephews. The Native American Lakota language calls it “Mitakuye Oyasin” – all my relations. Now when you look out at life, at people, at all beings, you see that they are all part of your family. A family to love, cherish, grow, support, educate, care for, and encourage. Isn’t that what we want for every member of our family? Now we’ve just included everybody, every being, and all life! Let this inform your choices, words, and actions, for everything impacts your family.
