The concept of oneness is growing in acceptance and yet many still do not understand the full meaning of the word. Let me shed some light on this for all of us.
Oneness is all inclusive and very simple in concept; however the reality in this ego world is separation struggles to maintain a hold on our lives. This shows up in turmoil, conflict, and loneliness. The only way to move beyond the illusion of separation is to embrace it and see it for what it is; an illusion. When something comes up that you recognize as separation, simply acknowledge it and then just leave separation behind as a concept. Ignore it, it has no power. Instead focus on the Truth. The Truth is that we are One, unified, and whole. Oneness is Unity expressed, it is ‘love thy neighbor as thy loves oneself’, it is making decisions with the consideration of seven generations to come, it is knowing we are all made of ‘Godstuff’, and it is so much more. Oneness is the realization that everyone you meet is a part of God, just like you are, and you have this in common with everything as well as everyone you meet. Each person is individual and connected at the same time. What you give, you give to yourself, since we are all one. What you deny for another, you deny yourself. When you heal yourself, you heal the world! You are using the same mind as Albert Einstein or Mother Theresa. You are ONE with GOD, in a word you are GOD, expressing as the individual that you are. Each form or “thing” you see is unique onto itself, meaning no two snowflakes are the same and yet a snowflake is like all other snowflakes, just not identical. This goes for all other forms as well. This is why when you meet someone new they are unique and yet they are YOU.
The only constant in this universe is change, so embrace change and honor each form you meet. When life is lived from a place of Oneness we become aware of the bond which connects all of life.
“What is arising now is not a new belief system, a new religion, spiritual ideology, or mythology. We are coming to the end not only of mythologies but also of ideologies and belief systems.
The change goes deeper than the content of your mind, deeper than your thoughts. In fact, at the heart of the new consciousness lies the transcendence of thought, a newfound ability of rising above thought, of realizing a dimension within yourself that is infinitely more vast than thought.” (A New Earth, Eckhart Tolle, Pages 21-22)
This dimension is the Oneness I speak of. It is something that must be experienced to truly know what it is, and once that connection is made it is a part of you, it cannot be lost. In fact it is constantly growing. This is so much larger than “you”! Can you feel it? After reading “A New Earth” by Eckhart Tolle it all became so clear to me and that feeling has continued to grow. We are witnessing our own evolution! Like the Renaissance Age of the 14th to 17th centuries this last 300 yrs or so could be remembered as the Age of Awakening! This age culminated Dec 21, 2012 and is a doorway to the beginning of a new age, the age of Infinite Possibilities, according to Ian Xel Lungold in his “Mayan 2012 secrets reveled.” We need not rely on one person’s interpretation here however, because we are all ONE. As we become more aware of this dimension beyond thought it is easy to see that Ian is right on the mark! Ian speaks of the mind as a tool that we use to experience our world. This tool can shape our future or it can trap us. By simply being aware of this we are shining light on the shadows and allowing ourselves to move beyond thought.
Given we have Infinite Possibilities, what is the direction you would like to take? This is a very important question at this crossroad. I speak on the level of all of humanity from the perspective of the Highest Good of everyone. We are co-creators with the most High and so when we get in touch with this goodness and allow it to flow through us great things are created! Be a conscious creator and share your thoughts. As we awaken to the Infinite Potential we possess we are compelled to follow our heart and just knowing that everyone in the world is Happy, Healthy, and Whole creates this reality. Think about this carefully now and consider what it means to be ONE. What you say is true, so be aware of your choices. As a gentle suggestion here, let go of your fears and limitations; see the Highest Society possible. To share of yourself is the Highest gift you can give, and the more individuals that share a similar vision the more likely it will manifest. Together we have created our past and now we have the opportunity to shape our future consciously! As we live in the moment, focus on all the wonderful gifts we have now (count your blessings), and take action by visualizing a future of Joy and Harmony for all beings in this Universe, so will the life we all desire manifest gloriously.
