The myth of the Magpies explains how the sky was so close to the earth after creation, all the animals (including mankind) had to crawl around on their bellies. All of the magpies got together and hatched a plan. They each found sticks and began pushing upward as hard as they could. The sky slowly started to move but then suddenly split apart, giving way to the earth's first sunrise. In both of these cards today there was a job or problem, and all the players got involved to complete the work or find a solution. There were no drawn-out, argumentative board meetings about what grain of sand should go where or what tree the sticks should come from. The team kept their mind on their purpose rather than their opinions. As the 12th Tradition of 12 Step groups encourages: "Principles before personalities."
Conflict cannot survive without your participation.
