7.1 Entry titled "Coming together."

"Individuality and group are two ends of a spectrum. 

On one end we are the individual, guided by our personality, sense of self, ego or if more conscious, perhaps a deeper more soulful place. No matter the depth, our unique imprint on the world around us can be seen through our ways and actions.  Our voice, whether spoken, written or silent, is our voice, no one else’s. 

On the other end of the spectrum we are part of a group, many groups.  We are a member of a family, team, workplace, street, suburb, city, country. In these contexts, we are one of many, not just one.  We are empowered by the collective connection of the group. We experience a sense of belonging."
