The beauty of all life as we know it is diversity. All facets of nature, including humans, are diverse, this is what creates the ability for life to continue to grow, change and expand. Without diversity we may be more likely to become extinction, or leave ourselves open to dysfunction and a lack of solution based improvement.
We can observe lack of diversity in things on a macro level such as monoculture farming, nations that don’t encourage individuality, groups that have a single minded focus, and on a micro level when we eat only one type of nutrient poor food, or focus our mind in one negative type of way. Ultimately it becomes destructive and doesn’t encourage positive growth and good health.
On a spiritual level if we understand that God/Source or Creation is experiencing itself through the abundance of diversity that exists then we can understand that without diversity there is no longer a need for anything to exist. It just becomes the singular I am.
So to encourage diversity is to feed the very essence and purpose of life.
All areas of your life can benefit from encouraging diversity. For instance if you were interested in a particular subject, looking at all angles, reading all available information and being open to all views about that subject would encourage a broader knowledge base and understanding about it. The same goes if we are considering people and the way they are or why they do things. If we apply this to our health, and our gut-brain axis, the more diverse our micro-biome is the better able our bodies are to be healthy and our minds are to be positive and clear.
In what areas of your life could you encourage more diversity. Do you find that you get stuck in a narrow view and are not able to come up with solutions, or are you sick of the same outcomes over and over again. Consider all the areas of your life that could benefit from diversity, from things such as your music and podcast choice to your knowledge base, friendship circles, to your diet, lifestyle and daily routines. Diversity keeps us alive, physically, spiritually, mentally and emotionally.
