Love One Another
One of the things we find so important in Unity is to ‘Love one another’ especially when we don’t agree. Yes, even in Unity there will be times when differing opinions reveal that we don’t always agree with one another. However, we do agree to be mature adults and speak directly to the person with whom we disagree versus running around and telling our tale of woe to everyone else except the person we have the issue with. Gossiping aka triangulation does not solve the problem with the person we have the disagreement with. That is why we in Unity agree to be mature adults and practice ‘Agreeing and Disagreeing in Love’. This practice eliminates triangulation, storytelling, posse building, and festering angst. When we go directly to the person with whom we have the challenge, we have a better opportunity to gain understanding, find a solution, and if nothing else agree to disagree in love.
