One of the most beautiful aspects of life is that we’re not alone. We’re interconnected and interdependent. Whether we like it or not. Without a cooperative effort much of life would be unbearable and yet there are many times when I’ve felt momentarily resistant to cooperating to being cooperative.
One of the primary ways I’ve experienced the ego identification is when I’ve felt that belligerence rise up and I refused to cooperate. When I was younger, I felt it all the time. That haughty, resistant, argumentative attitude was one of the ways that I would reclaim my power when I felt powerful – or so I thought! Now I know better.
Opening my heart to collaboration and cooperation is my power! When we work together we are so much stronger than when we work alone. Working together we can form a collective intelligence that is far greater and more powerful than anything I could create alone. It can also be far more satisfying.
Now, I prefer to be a bridge builder and a collaborator. The blessings are enormous and I am grateful every day!
A powerful daily spiritual practice is to find one significant way that you can cooperate more effectively with the people in your family, your workplace, school or community.
By being willing to cooperate I build a bridge. As I walk across the bridge I bring with me an offering of my heart. By a simple act such as this I make the world a more peaceful place.
