Watch this fun short film that illustrates the power of unity.
CONNECTION TO THE WHOLE GROUP
“Unity is strength…when there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved.” -Mattie Stephanek
“We are only as strong as we are united,
and as weak as we are divided.” - J.K Rowling
Unity. n. the state of being one, of being united or combined into one, as of the parts of a whole.
A member of the L Force can recognize, that while each of us is an individual and is special in our own way, we are a part of a greater whole. He or she understands their place as an individual in the collective whole of the planet. It includes humility of one’s ego to recognize the greater purpose and greater good. It can also be a recognition of the mystery that drives humanity towards growth and learning - a service to the greater picture, whatever way a culture of people talk about that picture.
Listen to this mindfulness track while closing your eyes and paying attention everything you feel around you. If you are able and comfortable, join hands with whatever people are in your L Force Search tribe. If you'd like, try to hum along with the music.
You can also use this track as a dance or movement improvisation activity. Just move however the music moves you!
