Tribe of One

My friend Tom and I keep having a discussion about people and tribalism. Tom has his PHD in Linguistics so he has some knowledge about people, language and its structure.  He insist68404423_2368486500103991_6739274845336371200_n that it is most people’s’ instinct to belong to a tribe. In the past, the Native Americans lived in tribes and for the most part still do. It is said Jesus belonged to the tribe of Judah. Others go to churches, synagogues, temples, monasteries, and mosques. We have families and jobs so that could also be considered tribal.

So I started to ask myself what is a tribe. I really do not have one, other than family and friends. But, then as I was writing this, I started thinking about you. Is spirituality tribal? What does tribal mean?  In the Biblical sense, which was the original one in English, the Latin word translates Greek phyle “race or tribe of men, body of men united by ties of blood and descent, a clan”. Tribal in Latin can be interpreted as Generalis which means general, universal, tribal.  Isn’t humanity a tribe united by body, mind and spirit?  In the Gospel of Thomas, Jesus said, “If they say to you, ‘Where have you come from?’ say to them, ‘We have come from the light, from the place where the light came into being by itself, established [itself], and appeared in their image.’ We are all part of  Infinite Intelligence and we are spiritual, so perhaps we could call it the Tribe of One.   

Consider humanity as a tribe formed long ago with the potential of over  7 billion wisdom-quotes-kindnesscompassioncharitytruth-and-lovepotential members.  Individually they have created their own reality by their thoughts, emotions and actions but collectively, have unknowingly created our world. The Tribe of One requirements would simply be you have to be awake.  Everyone is included, regardless of race or beliefs. The initiation is to know your true-self, be of service to others while learning the ways of love and wisdom. 

As member of the Tribe of One, I find it liberating to break away from the status quo and bring collaboration and community into the world with no dogmas or doctrines.  Love is the divine power.  The Tribe of One purpose to spread and share love, compassion, gratitude, 67636273_2369209166503744_6291097606453985280_nappreciation and be of  service to others. It is not about judging,  condemning  or controlling others by instilling negative beliefs such as “burning in hell” “sin and repentance” ; even if you don’t believe or belong to the same group, as I do.

Divine Universal Infinite Intelligence radiating pure energy of love is our source. Within each of us is that divine spark or light waiting to be awaken. The spiritual path is unique for each person. The Law of One is a wonderful guide that has very deep spiritual teachings and has been said to be one of the most important spiritual documents since Jesus. Each tribal member is responsible for their own initiation by whatever means they deem appropriate.

We have been given special gifts to discover and apply them in our world today. Our job is to positively raise the planet vibration by applying these seven steps in our daily lives.

Know yourself, accept yourself and realize we are all one tribe with Infinite Intelligence. Our Journey will be different paths, different understandings but the progression is one. Our job is simple, to be the light, to spread love and compassion wherever we go.  This short video provides some amazing facts about the human body.  Hope you enjoy and welcome to the Tribe of One.

World Intention

As children of the Creator, we demand all negativity and chords be removed from our planet. We ask that our world be filled with abundant love,  light and happiness. May our love flow like water, blessing all those that come within. May we remove old patterns that no longer serve us and all those that enter the light may truly see and receive blessings that are abundant for all. May all negative energies that are trying to bring us down be removed, and each thought, emotion and action allow the love and light to flow. May we ask the angels to guard and protect us, and to heal our bodies, mind and spirits, to feel the love and light, happiness and gratitude it deserves. 

 

Pay It Forward

There is a movement shaking the ground we walk upon today.  I’m not speaking of a movement for change, but a movement of change.  This change is not positive nor is it conducive to a happy healthy world.  We no longer reach out a hand to help but reach out a hand to hurt.  Our words are no longer meant to comfort but meant to slash and belittle. Our hearts no longer hurt for those in pain or those who cannot help themselves; as they are too full of hatred and anger or indifference.

Yet in all this bleakness a light shines, the light of our children.  An eight (8) year old boy who sees his friend unable to eat a hot lunch at school because he had no funds raises money to feed 3000 students hot meals daily at school.  A thirteen (13) year old girl begins making fleece blankets to send to orphanages around the world after her brother, who served as a missionary, came home to tell his family stories of the children suffering; there are now children in ten (10) states participating in her program.  A ten (10) year old girl who, after visiting her grandmother in a nursing home, starts a band that serenades the elderly to show them they have not been forgotten.  Children around the world are paying it forward; making a difference in hopes of making a better world.

As parents we hold our children close, teaching and molding them into the adults of tomorrow; yet today we find we have as much to learn from them as they do from us.  As adults we have become cold, callous and indifferent to our neighbors and our world.  We close our doors at night locking ourselves in and the rest of the world out.  Unfortunately, along with the locked doors we have locked our hearts as well.

It is time for a new movement, a movement of love, compassion, caring, and appreciation. A movement that brings a tear to our eyes again, that rattles our soul and envelopes our hearts with more happiness than we could ever imagine.  The change our world needs begins with us.

To each of us I challenge to Pay It Forward, smile and hold the door open for a stranger, check on your elderly neighbor, reach the top shelf for someone at a grocery store, hold a child’s hand to comfort, pay for a meal for someone who otherwise would not eat, smile at strangers for no reason.  Close your mind and live through your heart, be the person to others that you would find comfort in yourself.
