Connecting local responses around the world
Team of five- a husband-wife duo, two brothers, engineer, dietician, doctor, footballer, MBA, from two different states, stationed in front of the computer screen and conversation on skype! I knew the couple but others I met for the first time on skype and I dared to ask a very philosophical question 'what makes us human'.
The answers were - we are human because we have body and soul, we have six senses, emotions and feelings, we are intelligent, we know the difference between right and wrong. We have moral and spiritual values.
We recognised that we all as human beings have both positive as well as negative qualities. If we do away with our external differences we can connect with other. But as we reflected deeply two insights came up.This is a good question to ask ourselves because it helps one to think and to understand one self better. In today's life we often tend to forget that we are human. This question, thus, can serve as a reminder when we interact with other people. This is also the philosophy and way of thinking in the Constellation- we keep our expert and titles aside and focus on the human aspect.
Personally, after the end of this short I felt very connected with this team. There was a quote which was very moving which again illuminated the personal/human factor, "Working in older people's care home was initially a job but now I am emotionally connected and want to work from my heart."
(I had an opportunity to facilitate this skype session with Champions care home team http://www.championcarehomes.com/ Feroza, Johnson, Jebaraj, Sebastian and Rafique.)
