HIGHER GROUND: IT’S WHERE WE NEED TO BE

“We can find common ground only by moving to higher ground.” ~ Jim Wallis

Recently, I’ve been posting the message “Let’s find COMMON GROUND. MIDDLE GROUND. HOLY GROUND. HIGHER GROUND” on various photos of feet: toddler feet, bare feet, booted feet. 

I had thought the natural progression from divisiveness to unity was from common ground, to middle ground, to a potent place where miracles can happen as we bring our minds and hearts to higher ground.

However, after coming upon this Jim Wallis quote and considering it, I realize that the very intention, the sincere aiming, to find common ground is done on higher ground. It starts there. 

Whether it’s a relationship renewal between two people or building unity among many…it begins when we have stepped up.

Once there, we move about seeking common ground and middle ground. It’s like a dance. We may at first step on each other’s toes. But if we stick it out, we’ll gain some grace and reach higher ground together. 

Higher ground is always near, nearer than we think. We can reach it anytime. We just have to choose to take the step up. That often takes putting ego aside. But it is so beautiful to dance, walk, talk, work, live – be – in peace and harmony with one another. It’s wise and healthy too. 

Higher ground. Let’s go there.

With love and hope,
Charlene
