Common Sense

There is a sense that is common and accessible to all. Everyone might experience it in a unique way and maybe the way you feel it isn’t the way another feels it. Yet it is still the same sense.

Historically what is referred to as “common sense” has actually been based in an analysis of what is judged to be good or bad, right or wrong. It’s been based on a “right” or somehow obvious thing to do. From that assessment, theoretically, one can determine if an action would be considered “common sense.” But this assessment requires that all of the participants have the same values and a decidedly common culture around what is good or bad, right, wrong or obvious. 

For example, it may seem to be common sense in one culture to discipline a child with a spanking.In another culture spanking is the last resort. Two different cultures have different assessments of what is good or bad, right, wrong or obvious.

The realm of sense is not about analysis. It is feeling, vibrational awareness of something we know because we feel it.

Even a person with no musical training and no awareness of a good ear or a bad ear, even a person in that state has the capacity to tell the difference between music that's in harmony and music that is out of harmony. In the same light, with no training a person can walk into a room or a gathering and feel whether the people in the room are together in harmony or in conflict and discord. Awareness of harmony in music or among people is something we feel. It's not an analysis.

This ability to sense harmony is common to all of life. Individuals or groups may do something different with their sense, but the sense is common. 

Harmony is recognizable by the cells of human bodies. As we create anything, a relationship, a business, project, or anything imaginable, this creation can be built and generated from a priority of the sense of harmony. In other words, the awareness of the sense of harmony as a necessary and valued ingredient can actually become the common sense that brings people together into the same conversation. Along with the business activities or the connections in intimacy in relationships, or the reason behind why we build communities project, projects or anything else, coming together with awareness of a common sense of harmony lets us create in harmony with all of life.

Embracing and dancing with common sense as a priority is both an individual exploration as well as a community exploration. And the effects expand far beyond. Individuals can make a priority of their own awareness of harmony and bring their priority into community.

Those who aren't even aware of this priority on a conscious, analytical level can feel the sense of it within messaging, with in the communication, within the very presence of any one person who walks with the priority of this common sense.

Creating from a priority of harmony for the purpose of harmony is very very natural.  This awareness and this conversation though, are as yet relatively uncommon. That which is common is not necessarily normal. Harmony is the uncommon "normal" waiting silently for millennia to contribute to humanity. As we acknowledge and dance consciously with awareness of this common sense of harmony, bringing light and awareness to a new understanding of common sense, we create a new version of what is considered normal.

Just as tuning forks will come into harmony with one another effortlessly, humanity in harmony also finds itself in ever expanding harmony when individuals refuse to compromise their own common sense. It is the most basic, innate way to create a global community, through the spaciousness and harmony of a new awareness of common sense.

It is already happening…can you feel it?
