Unity With All of Creation — In Cosmic Community
A human being is part of the whole, called by us ‘Universe,’ a part limited in time and space. He experiences
himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of his
consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection
for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of
compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole [of] nature in its beauty.
~ Albert Einstein ~

The Space For Grace
Finding unity in the diversity of our world and beyond through interconnected,
interactive, and interdependent engagement with everyone and everything.
A primary purpose of a Big Love community is to promote a greater experience of “Oneness” both within and beyond the community itself. As a first priority in this regard, the Big Love community commits to provide opportunities for its members to serve as “Spiritual Activists” in ways that fit their desires. This may include forming “teams” of people who share interests in particular topics — e.g. caring for the homeless, ecological activities, community gardens, etc.
In the spirit of evolution through cooperation, we also seek partnerships and/or participation with other groups and initiatives engaged in “Whole-Making” at the local, state, national, and international levels. Our philosophy is that if there is to truly be “unity” in our world, we have to practice that idea in practical ways. To do so is an expression of spiritual principle.
While we choose to avoid partisan politics, we are passionate about issues related to fundamental human rights, caring for the world we live in, and “ideals” such as peace, prosperity, and joy in our times.
Using The Big Love Approach For Community Oneness
Naming Connections — We orient ourselves to what we share in common instead of how
we are different or separate — looking for points of connection
Living the Gaia Way — We accept the Gaia concept that earth (and the Universe) is a living entity,
finding ways to behave that are aligned with that as a primary reality
Practicing Interdependence — We recognize that every action has impacts and consequences,
so we strive to make choices that are for the greatest good
