BORN INTO UNITY
Embracing Our Common Spirituality
Today, many of us live under the impact of cultural pressures urging us to adopt an independent, me-first (or us-first) orientation towards life. "Born into Unity: Embracing Our Common Spirituality" urges us to do the opposite. This collection of essays encourages readers to acknowledge our fundamental togetherness—our interdependence—and reflect on its implications for everyday life. It reminds us that we are always co-creators rather than solitary makers of our experiences. And because our basic personal attributes and experiences are universal, it speaks about spirituality in a way that looks beyond the boundaries of specific religions. In the light of our common spirituality, "Born into Unity" points to the obvious but often overlooked insight that we participate most fully and creatively in the growth and development of both ourselves and our world by embracing the unity into which we have been born.
