Ubuntu is a [beautiful] traditional African concept with a rich history. In “About the Name”, it is described as the belief in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity. Leymah Gbowee describes it as, “I am what I am because of who we all are” and Desmond Tutu expressed it as, “My humanity is inextricably bound up in yours. We belong in a bundle of life.” However beautiful, it's difficult to corral the essence of this worldview into language. Let's give it life through our choices. We are all connected in The Reiki Ripple.
Sages say that the quieter you become, the more you can hear. I would follow that the more you do this, the more you can understand. Be still in the noise of the world and listen, truly listen to your inner sound and to the Universe's sound ("uni" meaning one and "verse" meaning song, or "one song"). In stillness, we find the space where our inner sound meets Universe. It is in this space that we learn our soul and align connectedly as one. ~ Katherine R.
