The Power of Unity
And He gives a short, sturdy stick
to each of his many offspring, wives, and relatives
"Break the stick," he instructs them
some effort, they all snap their sticks in half
old man next gives each of his kin another stick, and says,
"Now, break these bundles in half"
one can break the sticks
"This is how I would like you to live after I pass on"
The old man smiles
are strong when we stand with another soul
Women Who Run With the Wolves,
( Thank you Morning Star for sharing this with me )
the Unity of the Soul...
we are unbeatable...
So how doe's one Gain this Unity ?
The Ways are many.... most of them very simple
You can gather in body... meaning in person
can communicate Via Telephone, Mail letters,
can gather in a circle and share yourself
The Ways to Join are Endless
We tend to live our lives in pockets of isolation
Hence we often alone .. in more ways than one
This should not be ... because
we need a moment to rest
we need to Vent some steam..
we are hard pressed by life ...
we have a great Idea..
of these things and more
is the power of togetherness ... Unity
A bundle is always more powerful than one alone
Ever try to pull a finger cuff apart once it's on your hands ?
a tricky little woven device that you can easily
is how the Power of unity works
if you braid that twine into a rope
is the power
is the Power
All it takes is the will to work together
allow the barriers of suspicion and fear to drop
lose the self imposed barriers
that is what stops most of us ... Fear... Fear of rejection
become a strong people again ... yes I say again..
individuals May have been lost
we must be again .. in the Circle and in our personal lives
So that never Will the threads be broken ... that make up the whole of humanity
we fail in this
see the signs of this breakdown of commonality
all men felt the unity of soul .. No more would
more would we see Mother Earth fouled
more would we see our neighbors
more would we see Wars fought
are the things that come from being cut off,
the Soul were unified would not a man feel
the shafts of Straw used to build the homes
they did ... the time has come to regroup
Stick that is me
our Union be blessed
