The following questions or insights can provide shortcuts to connecting with the Universal Truth:

All Is One

Did I lose my spirit in any version of tribal warfare?

Was I harmful to another person because of the tribe they belong to?

Do I give people room to evolve?

Do I feel the positive energy of nature?

Do I feel the positive energy of my tribal connection?
