Knowing that you have a “tribe” and being able to actually interact with members occasionally provides that needed human interaction. It allows us to fully be ourselves without people thinking we’re weird (or dangerous). We have someone we can talk to if needed or spend time with. Sometimes it can provide that shoulder to cry on. If you have a good tribe, the possibilities are endless.
Despite all our different tribes, we really are all the same. We are the same flesh and blood, and our life source or energy. We were all born. We will all die. That pretty much makes us all the same. The outside, the shell, the body, is fleeting.
Most of us have more than one tribe. This allows us to be receptive to other points of view. This past weekend at the conference, among our tribe were those of us who belong to several tribes. And yet, we still all were able to coexist for the weekend. In my opinion, society is just a bunch of tribes. Knowing that we have someone in our corner, whether from our tribe or somebody else’s, provides a sense of security or contentment. So just remember, if they’re not from your tribe, be nice to them anyway. Who knows, you may join one of their tribes eventually.
