The Power of a Unique Self Symphony Part 2*

How do we create a society with a new coherence?

A community that self-organizes around something gorgeous?

Marc Gafni, Gafni, Dr. Marc Gafni, Unique Self Symphony, Kristina AmelongNot around defense, but around creating more of something beautiful?

Another way to ask these same questions is, how do humans self-organize?

A key property of reality is self-organization. Think about ants. Pheromones. This all works similarly throughout the universe, which we call morphogenesis, the beginning shape of things.

So, what drives self-organization for humans?

Uniqueness. For human beings, uniqueness is the driver for self-organization. Uniqueness is our unique set of allurements. We must clarify our desires, for our Unique Selves. These clarified desires then start to attract others. We begin to “symphonize”. A Unique Self Symphony is born.

Only the power of a Unique Self Symphony can cohere a new social synergy.

“To love your neighbor is to respond to the person right next to you. It is to identify the unique need in your unique circle of intimacy and influence. It is this consciousness that manifests the Unique Self Symphony of Outrageous Love. Just like ants in an ant colony, you are not moved by the global issues but by what is needed at street level. You think locally, are impacted by local needs and you act locally. What is manifested however through each Unique Self acting locally is the globally transformative Unique Self Symphony, with each Unique Self playing her instrument, committing her unique acts of Outrageous Love.

Unique Self catalyzes the emergence of the highest and most elegant level of Outrageous Love — Evolutionary We Space and the Unique Self Symphony. This Outrageous Love, which explodes as a new level of consciousness, has the power to heal and transform both the personal and collective suffering–the outrageous pain which defines our world.”
