“Unity in Diversity”

“Unity in diversity” is an old, prominent principle of many religions around the world.

“‘A oneness of being’, namely reality is one, and God is the only true existence; all other beings are merely shadows, or reflections of God’s qualities.” ~ Philosopher Ibn al-‘Arabi (1165–1240)

The 5,000-year-old religion of Hinduism pronounces one unity among all of creation and a diversity in existence. Buddhists believe by honoring diversity and finding unity in it, this forms wisdom. Islam’s Quran upholds unity by encouraging respect and the dignity of all human beings–a moral consciousness of God.

As Christians, we gather to praise the son of God, Jesus Christ, as a brotherhood of believers bonded by a baptism of life. Grasping the complexity of this concept, we should realize the shade of your skin doesn’t matter. I may be light-skinned in the winter but in the summer it turns dark. You may be a practicing Catholic or Buddhist but who cares when we are one in God’s house.

You may remember the biblical stories of God bringing peace amongst the Jews and Gentiles. That was based on unity in diversity. He sent Paul to countries all over the world for twenty-five years. Because God proclaimed the Jews were His chosen people, the Gentiles became irate and slighted. Therefore, Paul planted God’s seeds to all nations:

We have a tendency to brand friendships by the length of their hair, the vehicle they drive in, the community in which they live, and the clothes they wear daily. This, too, is of no consequence. Why should we address such things of little importance for we, as a body of people is so much more in God’s eyes?

In the United States, the Pledge of Allegiance boasts it’s unity in diversity (one nation; under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all). We are a diverse mixture of many nationalities forming this great country. Unity? Some will dispute it because the political arena places a great divide between us, but nevertheless, we are one. It is what makes us stronger.

A man and woman, from very different backgrounds, join in marriage and develop a unity in diversity. They raise children forming the family unit. Though each personality is dissimilar, they should learn to love one another, live and work together in oneness. The family structure is a basic foundation of loving, unconditionally, in God’s divine grace.

I pray my thoughts may be heard – we are a family and world of God’s children. It is unfortunate many still reel from ramifications of previous generations – prejudices, hatred, and labeling our brothers and sisters. If we learned to remove the walls of division, the goodness in the world would have an everlasting effect. Brotherly love, my friends, is all it takes and forgiveness of those who trespassed our way of life. When you set an example, it brings others to eternal salvation. God needs leaders who gather together and heeds His words–unity in diversity.

Honor God, won’t you? The rewards are forthcoming. Christ was, and always will be Head of the Church. His words are anointed so let not the tongue be sworn to the sword. Christ is coming!

Song ‘Longing For Freedom’ by Mirakali (audio & lyrics)

Good morning from Mirapuri, the City of Peace and Futureman in Europe, with Mirakali’s Song ‘Longing For Freedom’ – have a great day!


 
Song Lyrics
Longing For Freedom

Longing for freedom,
longing for love,
longing for a world of peace.

Loving beings,
creative with all power we have,
with all the joy to express
what lives in our souls.

Finding the treasures of a new world,
born to bring back paradise to earth.
And you too will smile
when you have reached this wonderful place
living in a new and beautiful time.

Somehwere in the mountains is a city
where everybody can learn to live together in peace,
to work together as one human family
where all colours, races, all cultures are welcome.

It‘s Mirapuri,
the city of peace and futureman
whereto we belong,
where is our home.
There we can realize the ideals of peace,
of love and progress and unity.
It’s a wonderful place where all are free.
I’m longing for freedom,
longing for a whole planet
living in peace.

‘PULSE OF EUROPE SONG’ – NEW-TOPICAL-SONG DEDICATED TO THE FUTURE GROWTH OF THE EUROPEAN UNION, APROPOS THE 60TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE TREATIES OF ROME

The ‘Pulse of Europe Song’ is Michel Montecrossa’s New-Topical-Song dedicated to the future growth of the European Union as a great reality-creating Action Culture for building World Unity. He wrote the ‘Pulse of Europe Song’ apropos the 60th Anniversary of the Treaties of Rome which laid the foundations for the Europe we know today, ushering in the longest period of peace in written history in Europe. Michel Montecrossa sees Europe as a great progress-success of peoples and cultures on the way to find better solutions for changing the climate change, for changing racism, for changing social inequality and for changing war into peace.

Michel Montecrossa about his New-Topical ‘Pulse of Europe Song’:
“My ‘Pulse of Europe Song’ is dedicated to the future growth of the European Union and its spirit of the Living Celebration of Humanity.

Therefore Europe must always grow in intensity and self renewing progress-energy of freedom and knowledge for all humanity.”

PULSE OF EUROPE SONG

Pulse of Europe, Pulse of Time.
United Europe peaceful and kind,
a positive world of Freedom and Light
standing for all humankind.

Humanity, liberty, diversity smile
is Europe united, determined and wide.
A union of Peace and Prosperity,
a loving way to live Free Identity.

Let’s be the Pulse of Europe, my friends!
The Pulse of great progress-success
of peoples and cultures and expression free,
of wisdom and love and future feel.

Space Age is there and nature green.
Education is there that can make us see:
Europe is Action-Culture of you and me,
the cradle it can be of World Unity.

Pulse of Europe, Pulse of Time.
United Europe peaceful and kind,
a soulful world of Freedom and Light
standing for all humankind.

National costumes

Come see what the world wears, its all happening in London .  I would say at Celebrations and on Sundays are the times to see an array of beautiful costumes in London.  We have a wide diverse population, there are 270 nationalities, the variety of styles that can be seen as beautiful as it is culturally unique.  In their homes lots of people wear it to relax in .

We can’t help but turn to look at beautiful lady or an elegant gentleman or children dressed in their national costumes feeling proud and connecting with their heritage.  Compliments abound and national costumes have become sort after gifts of value.

Of course, each continent has many nations but I am not going to list each one.  In order not to bore everyone, I am going to group certain areas together and leave you to visualise, that the Western European wear of Top Hat and Tails and Pin-Stripe Trousers, Two or Three Piece Suits for men and the elaborate Gowns and Dresses bring out the oohs and aahs just like clothes of the different African, or Indian or Asian or Latin American or Eastern European or Oriental or Arabic and Indigenous Tribe Celebration Wear. Dress code apart, it is not unusual for a guest to wear a costume of the host’s country or any other national costume.  It is the feel-good factor at work.

Don’t take offence if you feel a nation should be mentioned specifically and I haven’t.  Yeah, this is a happy and celebratory post?  So when did you last wear your national costume?  For relaxing at home I wore an African print Kaftan.
