Spiritual Freedom

One Community feels the combination of all our other core values completely and holistically represents what we’d describe as the “Spiritual Core” of One Community. The center of this is living for The Highest Good of All, which embraces both diversity and Oneness. With this, we choose to see each of us as expressions of each other and all aspects of spirituality and non-spirituality that includes (and is definitely not limited to) Jesus, Buddha, Kali, Krishna, Isis, Mandela, Sofia, Mohammed, Yahweh, Sai Baba, La Virgen Maria, Waka Tankan, Ramana, God, no God, or Something else. We do our best to live a life of acceptance, love, and understanding for all; and we feel that God/The Universe/The All, or whatever label one wishes to call It, does the same. We try and see the Divinity in all things and to honor this by living an honorable life of gratitude, contribution, cooperation, and service to each other, our planet, and the rest of our species.

WAYS TO PARTICIPATE WITH ONE COMMUNITY

WHAT IS SPIRITUAL FREEDOM*

Spirituality for One Community is inclusive, non-ideological, and considered a personal choice and component of Personal Growth. In the broadest sense, and as a general organizational approach, we see life as a spiritual experience. The One Community lifestyle includes The Highest Good of Allpersonal growthsharing everything we do, working together for positive global impact, and fulfilled living practices that include building things, creating things, playing music, making art, spending time with our friends and families, and the conscious practice of happiness. With this in mind, we see all aspects of living as spiritual practices that may or may not be chosen by individuals to be associated with a particular practice, religion, or belief system. We respect this choice and we also respect the choice not to participate in activities that conflict with personal beliefs.

  • USING SPIRITUALITY IN DECISION MAKING*

In decision making* at One Community, the value of “Spirituality” is applied by asking ourselves the following three key questions:

  • How can we demonstrate open-minded, Highest Good of All, free thinking even more?
  • Are we being conscious of all belief systems and acting and creating for maximum inclusiveness?
  • Are we respecting different perspectives and creating solutions for all, including non-participants?

* To ensure we are always aligned with our purpose, values, and mission, One Community uses the values as defined by our organization as the compass for all our decision making; we then factor in the diversity of individual perspectives and experiences. We highly recommend this approach because it saves us hundreds, if not thousands, of hours of collaborative decision making time. If you are considering our model as a template for your own creation, we especially recommend you apply this approach too and use, adapt, or completely change the values we’ve presented so you too can create a clear guidance system that aligns with your own organizational/group/individual needs.

 

WHY SPIRITUALITY

One Community is focused on practicing acceptance and unconditional love for one another as part of what we feel will create peace and happiness on this planet. In the spirit of this, we see an opportunity to create and maintain a Community that embraces Oneness by encouraging inclusion and unconditional love. Globally demonstrating this with diverse beliefs and perspectives, and celebrating people being themselves irrespective of their religious leanings, race, gender, sexual preference, politics, and lifestyle will help us focus on what humanity has in common, cultivate kindness, and help us to develop even more holistic solutions for the future of everyone.

PRACTICING RELIGION AT ONE COMMUNITY

Creating a Highest Good Society and Community that celebrates diversity means people who want to practice an organized religion at One Community will naturally do so. Individuals who choose specific religious and/or spiritual practices may do so during their free time which is outside of their weekly contribution hours, or, if enough people are interested in participating, organized practices can be established under the guidelines of our recreational/social architecture aspect of community contribution. We see this as opening up opportunities for learning and enriching our environment through a better representation of the diverse beliefs and cultures of the world.

It is also up to the individual if they do NOT wish to participate in any religious or spiritual practice that an individual or group may choose to organize. Just as the diversity of people’s beliefs are celebrated and respected, so too are people’s rights NOT to participate in any activity, practice, or teaching.

 

SUMMARY

We feel the combination of all our other core values completely and holistically represents what we’d describe as the “Spiritual Core” of One Community. The center of this is living for The Highest Good of All, which embraces both diversity and Oneness; seeing each of us as expressions of each other. We focus on practicing acceptance and unconditional love for one another and celebrate diversity by being non-denominational and non-ideological in our approach.

Q: Why isn’t the core value of Spirituality represented as an icon like the other core values?

Spirituality for One Community is inclusive, non-ideological, and considered a personal choice and component of Personal Growth. “Spirituality” in relationship to One Community, however, is a frequent enough topic to warrant inclusion in some areas of our website along with links to this clarification page. Because our actual organizational philosophy celebrates diversity by being non-denominational, non-ideological, and agreeing that life is a spiritual experience and practice, we feel the combination of all our other core values completely and holistically represents what we’d describe as the “Spiritual Core” of One Community. For these reasons, and to maintain the focus on the other much more specific and detailed values, we do not feel Spirituality requires its own icon.
