One of the sayings in our country is Ubuntu - the essence of being human. Ubuntu speaks particularly about the fact that you can't exist as a human being in isolation. It speaks about our interconnectedness. You can't be human all by yourself, and when you have this quality - Ubuntu - you are known for your generosity. We think of ourselves far too frequently as just individuals, separated from one another, whereas you are connected and what you do affects the whole world. When you do well, it spreads out; it is for the whole of humanity. ~Desmond Tutu
Came across this the other day. It was like a little treasure I had misplaced and found again hiding in the dark recesses behind the couch. Got me to thinking and so thought I would share. Peace.
