1. Spiritual Practice
I commit myself to active spiritual practice and to align with spirit to work for the greatest good.
I commit myself to the service of others and to our planet, recognizing that I must also serve myself in order to practice this effectively.
3. Personal Growth
I commit myself to the expansion of human consciousness, including my own, and I recognize and change any of my personal attitudes or behavior patterns which do not serve this aim. I take full responsibility for the spiritual, environmental and human effects of all my activities.
4. Personal Integrity
I commit to maintain high standards of personal integrity, embodying congruence of thought, word and action.
5. Respecting Others
I commit wholeheartedly to respect other people (their differences, their views, their origins, backgrounds and issues), other people’s and the community’s property, and all forms of life, holding these all to be sacred and aspects of the divine.
6. Direct Communication
I commit to using clear and honest communication with open-listening, heart-felt responses, loving acceptance and straightforwardness. In public and in private I will not speak in a way that maligns or demeans others. I will talk to people rather than about them. I may seek helpful advice, but will not seek to collude.
I recognize that anything I see outside myself – any criticisms, irritations or appreciations – may also be the reflections of what is inside me. I commit to looking at these within myself before reflecting them to others.
I take responsibility for my actions and for my mistakes. I am willing to listen to constructive criticism and to offer constructive feedback to others in a caring and appropriate fashion, to challenge and support each other to grow.
I agree not to inflict my attitudes or desires (including sexual) on others. I agree to step in and stop, or at least say that I would like stopped, actions (including manipulation or intimidation) that I feel may be abusive to myself or others in this online community.
I take responsibility to work through and put aside my personal issues for the benefit of the whole Global Network. I will resolve all personal conflicts as soon as possible. I acknowledge that there may be wider perspectives than my own and deeper issues than those that may immediately concern me.
I recognize that this is a spiritual community and that it functions only through my cooperation and my good communication. I agree to communicate my decisions clearly. I agree to communicate with others who may be affected by my actions and decisions and to consider their views carefully and respectfully. I recognize that others may make decisions which affect me and I agree to respect the care, integrity and wisdom that they have put into their decision-making process.
I commit to make every effort to resolve disputes. At any time in a dispute I may call for an advocate, friend, independent observer or mediator to be involved.
I commit to keeping agreements I have made and not to break or try to evade any laws, rules, or guidelines; to have honest dealings with all bodies.
I commit to exercising the spirit of this statement of Common Ground in all my dealings.
One of the gifts we offer one another when we connect through the network of light is to share our transformative experiences. The intent of our Humanity Healing forum and its Projects is to help bring each of you together to share, learn, and develop new ways to expand and send many different forms of healing to the World.
Many people face huge trials in life and we, as individuals should stand by them as one, in solidarity and compassion.
