Why The Name?
When we communicate well, we understand and respect each other. When we understand and respect each other, we broaden and align our perceptions. When we broaden and align our perceptions, becoming more inclusive, we greatly increase our power to reach common goals.
Our name recognizes the fact that we are fundamentally the same and ultimately united, and we prosper if we remember this in everything we do.
The words of spiritual teacher Stephen Gaskin make me laugh while they remind me every day why I believe communication is crucial to the health of our spaceship, Planet Earth and all of us it carries. These words are the inspiration for the name of All One Communication.
“I know something. I know we are All One. I know it so well that if I’m falling out of a tree, I remember we’re All One before I hit the ground. I’m not going to forget it; I can’t give it up.”
– Stephen Gaskin, This Season’s People
