“Deep Diversity focuses on habit breaking and forming.
It is entirely possible to change our habits:
there are proven ways to change how we think and perceive,
thereby developing new neural patterns.
There is considerable evidence of neuroplasticity,
meaning that where we put our attention
and what we focus on helps change the structures of the brain.
Just as muscle mass can increase through physical workouts,
we can grow parts of our brain,
allowing us to form new habits and shift our perspectives
in the ongoing task of increasing racial harmony.”
Shakil Choudhury, from Deep Diversity: Overcoming Us vs. Them
Today, I rise above the fray,
the feelings, the dysfunctions, and the disillusions of others
and I center in the power of absolute good that I AM.
In this opportunity, I accept triumph.
In this triumph, I am whole.
I am enlightened.
I am victorious.
In Galatians, 6:10, Paul says:
“Therefore, as we have opportunity,
let us do good to all people,
especially to those who belong to the family of believers.”
Paul says “while we [as individual believers] have the opportunity,
let us do good to all people [not only being helpful,
but also doing that which promotes their spiritual well-being],
and especially [be a blessing] to those centered in God.
I walk through the day of opportunity today
with every aspect of my being.”
