My Elder, Parisha, talks often about the benefits of living in community and living a transparent life. Humans, and many animals in fact, are social creatures and meant to live in community with one another. There is that expression about “strength in numbers.” There are countless benefits when people pull their skills and talents together. Parisha has said, “How can we make a difference? Scripture and science say to be inclusive and through unity we can build; through separation and singly, we destroy. Matthew, in the Bible, says where two or more gather, I AM. When two atoms group, they merge and create a molecule that is a field of information that comes of their merging. They are the principle of Three; in the beginning there is one, then there are two, and then the two become three and from the three become all things.”
