We are One

Man vs Nature

Let us take a lesson from nature.  If it were not for man running around building things do you think that we would have civilizations on this planet?  Well it is a possibility but it is also unlikely.  I would like to compare our social system of money with nature in hopes to get you thinking about a few things.  Have you ever considered the role of money in our society?  I mean really broken it down and considered the many functions it plays in society. 

Let’s take a closer look and see what money has done for us.  First of all the obvious exchange of money for services or objects, and second it makes our lives more convenient and is a definite improvement over barter.  It is also a method of control, since the one who has the most money can control the actions of others by either offering money or threatening to withhold it.  Money has been used for many evil purposes in man’s pursuit to have more.  This is where the old saying “money is the root to all evil” comes from, but it also comes from the church who preached that money is bad because it makes people do bad things.  Is this really the truth?  Of course not, money is nothing more than a tool and like all tools can be used for mischief or good.  The good that money can do is an abundant gift that serves all of mankind through its sharing. 

Using nature as a comparison, do animals use money?  What about trees and plants?  Is a rock going to charge you $5 to stand on it or use it to build your house?  Think of all the functions the cells in your body have and then ask yourself if they charge for their services!  I know this seems absurd but if you were a sentient animal, say a deer, what would you think of this behavior of those humans?  What did we do before money about 4000 years ago?  Now that I have you thinking, let’s take this to the next level.

What if everyone continued to do as they do, but money was subtracted from the equation?  Stay with me here and put down those flags.  I am suggesting that if we as a society agreed that survival was for the betterment of everyone and that suffering was not necessary then money could easily be removed from the equation.  How can this occur?  It requires that each person understand what oneness really means, that when anyone is harmed it affects us all, this means that we are all connected in ways we are just beginning to understand.  The movie “Avatar” nicely demonstrates this relationship to us.  This relationship is a synergistic one where life is based on a giving and receiving that is intuitive.  We can still have our cities and technology, and when we all work together we can create a heaven that is a culmination of all our dreams. 

I realized this morning that it is each of us and our attitudes toward this idea that determines its viability.  Let go of your mind, your doubts, your questions and consider the possibilities when you personally say, Yes.  As each person says, YES, the power of this agreement builds to a point when a cascading of people saying, Yes comes over the world like a wave of YES.  In our agreement comes the manifestation of our dreams. 

The problem is that so many of us say No automatically without even thinking of whether we would like this or not.  Our minds jump to the task of disproving this!  Ask each person if they believe that each human deserves to live a life with food, water and shelter and they will most likely tell you YES.  However ask them if they are willing to live so that this is possible and we get hesitation.  I am no longer hesitating!  I have a vision of Love for our society and over the next few days I will be putting this into words as best I can.  Please hear me, anything is possible with Love.  🙂 Sequoia Elisabeth

Beyond Courage

What is courage and is it necessary when confronting a transition.   A transition is a change from one state, stage or condition to another, so as a person observes nature this process is constantly occurring at all levels of life.  Nature does not struggle, nor does it resist.  What is, is and that is OK.  When viewed through human eyes however all sorts of dramas emerge as we project ourselves into the “grand scheme of things”.  Are the caribou that traverse thousands of miles in the longest land migration on earth using courage to make their journey?  How about the tiny hummingbird that migrates from North America to South America and back again every year, do they use courage?  What about the largest living thing on earth the Sequoia tree, does it need courage to survive for up to 3 millennia? 

Courage as defined by Dictionary.com is “the quality of mind or spirit that enables a person to face difficulty, danger, pain, etc., without fear; bravery.”  The very definition is restricted to humans!  We are the Kings and Queens of fear for we seem to worship fear.  We make movies about it, write books to experience it, share it with each other through our stories and teach it through our actions.  It would seem that we are propagating fear in search of Courage, since courage is necessary to overcome fear.  To me this seems like a vicious cycle and is ultimately unnecessary.  Courage is not a trait that animals use, they simply respond to the urge to survive through stimulus/response. 

Transition is usually coupled with difficulty, danger and pain so we automatically assign courage as the trait that we use to face this challenge.  As conscious beings we make the choice to face transition without fear so thus we are being courageous.  If we let go of our human nature and approach things with animalistic responses our survival is assured, but without the egoic self satisfaction we gain from doing it consciously. 

Is courage necessary to transition, no it is not, however it is necessary to be our human selves operating from self awareness.  This self awareness is what puts us beyond all other creatures and to be aware that you are aware is even more satisfying. 

What if you were to take it to the next level and move beyond courage and face your transition with calm certainty and inner knowing?  Life then becomes as easy and enjoyable as watching a good movie.

A new consciousness

One of the greatest Joys we share in this world is the feeling of connection.  This feeling has many avenues to the experience.   Love is the biggest one that comes to mind immediately, and  it is expressed in many ways, compassion, empathy, caring, respect, and affectionate play are to name but a few.  These are principles that Spiritual leaders have been teaching for centuries, so they are nothing new, but no less important.  I would like to share with you today another way to connect with others that is purely Spiritual, and goes beyond human interaction.  This is what I believe we are experiencing in this world wide transition we are experiencing right now and which culminates in 2012. 

It is time to take this human experience to a new level!     I will do my best to put this into words that convey my meaning, although please understand that the human languages are limited in what they convey.  The way we will move beyond this misunderstanding that is so prevalent in society is to communicate more directly through thought.  We are already doing this to some degree and some people are better at it than others.  For instance two soul mates in a close relationship can sense what their partner is feeling and thinking.  Some people can even pick up words from others.  Simple mind reading is sort of what I am speaking of but it is more than that.  Telepathy is the term we have given it and I feel like even that is too simplistic. 

Based on the philosophical belief that we are all of one mind, the mind of God (or whatever Deity you prefer) it is not hard to understand how we can communicate in this direct fashion.  All of your thoughts come to you from Great Spirit, God, or Universal Mind, and they are not your own until you claim them.  It is our ego’s that have us believing that we are brilliant and that no one else could have come up with that great invention you patented.  Or that wonderful story you have copyrighted.  When in fact the idea came from the “only” mind there is.  This concept is as deep as our oceans so I don’t expect you to grasp it all from this short blog, however I do hope to get you thinking in a contemplative, open way. 

The movie “Avatar” that just came out demonstrates this concept of one mind very well through the Na’vi and Pandora.  The parallels between that world and our own are profound to those who chose to see them.  Planet Earth is no less connected than Pandora and our bodies are simply our Avatars!  The timing of this movie is perfect because consciousness has come to the tipping point of not only being self aware, but being aware that it is self aware.  I find it increasingly easy to “see through the eyes of Great Spirit” which we can do since we are all using the same mind.  Yes, we are separate, but in a fashion much like rain drops are separate, or maybe you prefer the image of snowflakes sense they seem more distinct.  Either way we are all one, because we are not our bodies, we are of the one mind – Great Spirit, Universal Mind, or God.   😉 Sequoia Elisabeth
