I read about something called the Three Sisters, meaning corn, beans and squash. When the Three Sisters are planted together, they provide support to each other's growth.
Instead of competing and crowding each other out, they use their diversity and their differences wisely so that all three can flourish.
What a lesson! We spend so much time focusing on our differences these days. We humans could learn from the Three Sisters and from nature, in general.
When we first seek to find common ground, we can then appreciate our diversity and wisely address our differences.
So, be present. Reach out. Listen respectfully. Engage in conversation. Learn. Grow.
Where might you benefit from finding common ground?
Today, this week: Look for the similarities before the differences.
