“Ubuntu […] speaks of the very essence of being human. [We] say […] “Hey, so-and-so has ubuntu.” Then you are generous, you are hospitable, you are friendly and caring and compassionate. You share what you have. It is to say, “My humanity is caught up, is inextricably bound up, in yours.” We belong in a bundle of life. We say, “A person is a person through other persons.”
[…] A person with ubuntu is open and available to others, affirming of others, does not feel threatened that others are able and good, for he or she has a proper self-assurance that comes from knowing that he or she belongs in a greater whole and is diminished when others are humiliated or diminished, when others are tortured or oppressed, or treated as if they were less than who they are.”
Essentially meaning…I AM because WE ARE.
As our mission of expanding the collective consciousness through creativity and conversation continues to evolve, we understand and appreciate the value that every one of you has in this movement. To make your voice heard, and allow our audience to connect with you on the peer to peer network that is Instagram, we are taking a key from Humans of New York, on our #weareevolveandascend campaign.
We want to connect with the fresh faces that are leading the way in creating a new paradigm of thought through art, creativity, conversation, connection, and love.
We are all in this together…together we can, and together we will. We are living in the most exciting time to be alive, and we are excited to have you be a part of our journey into humanity’s new paradigm.
