Ascendance requires us to create situations in which the “greatest good for all” is addressed by our thoughts, behaviors and actions. By rising above our current circumstance, we can see where points of connection exist that enable us work towards the betterment of all, rather than remaining tied to boundaries established by cemented beliefs and identities. The perspective of Ascendance asks us to move beyond our denial. We can not contribute to the “greatest good for all”, if our beliefs and identities prohibit us from recognizing the unity and humanity present in all.
Do your beliefs and identities about yourself enable you to see the goodness in you? Why or why not?
Do your beliefs and identities about others enable you to see the goodness in all? Do you long to exclude some people from the “greatest good for all” based on your beliefs and identities about them?
