Oneness Ministry

We are One

Oneness – Beyond Thought

“Welcome to Oneness Ministry

Explore, Discover, and Experience our Oneness. Know thyself and you will know the world! We are dedicated to revealing Truth using our guide, Jesus and his teachings in A Course in Miracles.

The Journey of Love is about acceptance and non-judgment. We are Spiritual Beings not these vessels we use to interface with this world. There are no limitations with Mind. The One Mind, the only Mind, the Mind of God. Holy Spirit is here to show the way.” (https://onenessministry.info/)

The Above is the intro to our website Oneness Ministry. Upon review I feel like Oneness needs more explanation. All my pages here are related to oneness, some more than others. We cannot be too focused on Oneness, why? Because it is the essence of all existence. “Know thyself and you will know the world!” Simply stated, by knowing yourself, you know everything! This is Oneness, You, me, others… all of the One. It all seems separate – an illusion of ego mind. Most of the time connections are invisible, we see other people, places, and things as Other and this is right, they are Other Self. They are us projected into the world so we can know ourselves. This is both reassuring and terrifying!

“The Journey of Love is about acceptance and non-judgment.” So our journey here is to accept it all as One and most importantly not to judge it as good or bad or other at all. The Eastern Religions and teachings are less cryptic about this teaching than say Christianity, though all religions teach these concepts. Judge not, lest ye be judged! Do onto others as you would have done onto you! Take these cliches literally. There is no one else to judge or to do upon!

“We are Spiritual Beings not these vessels we use to interface with this world. There are no limitations with Mind. The One Mind, the only Mind, the Mind of God. Holy Spirit is here to show the way.” This comes from ACIM, A Course in Miracles which is the direct channeled teachings of Jesus. So what does it mean to be a Spiritual Being? We are not the observer, we are not the action taker, we are not even the master mind, we are Spirit, that which is beyond time and space. Spirit is reality… all that is real. “Nothing real can be threatened. Nothing unreal exists. Herein lies the peace of God.” (ACIM) So to explain this further, our lives are dreams or projections of mind. The aspect of Mind which believes itself to be separate from God, the Ego. While there is only One Mind, the Mind of God, we are constantly choosing between the false and the true, unconsciously most of the time. What we see, hear, feel, touch, taste is of ego mind. In fact an easy way to distinguish the false from the true is to know God, to know yourself. (My eBook Livin’ Large Ch. 12 goes into this further)

According to ACIM Holy Spirit is our go between and guide home. God knows nothing of this world and has nothing to do with what happens here, which frankly, explains a lot! Our choice is between Ego and Holy Spirit. It is as simple as that. Ego makes things complicated, Spirit is simple. As we say, we are giving up nothing (the ego or unreal) and receiving everything! (Spirit, who we are, the real)

Silence

The possession of God is the silence of the heart. The thought of God is the silence of the mind. ~Mother Mary of St Austin

Chapter 6 from the eBook, Methods of Raising Our Energy, The following chapter discusses Silence as a tool for not only Spiritual Enlightenment but for daily practice.  For more on this topic please check out the free eBooks found on the website listed below.

A still soul is the pathway to God, for God resides in the silence in between reality.  The journey within begins with a desire to know God and is never finished.  When you sit in silence and hold nothing in your mind you are opening the door to the heart.  The heart is the seat of the soul thus connecting you to your higher self.  The next time you have a day off do nothing at all, and I do mean nothing!  This takes a lot of practice, but can lead to awesome shifts in perception of what is (Enlightenment).

Silence is the folding of the wings of the intellect to open the door of the heart. ~Catherine de Hueck Doherty

Meditation is the simple act of continuous and profound contemplation or musing on a subject or series of subjects of a deep or abstruse nature.  Many people use meditation as a method of clearing the mind and finding the nothingness we all are looking for.  The mind is a tool and it is always on.  Let me say it again, the mind is always on.  Meditation is focusing the mind on something, or nothing and since focusing on nothing is very challenging for the beginner start with something (a flame, spot on the wall, picture, or just about anything).  When using “nothing” as your focus for meditation, try imagining a white room with no furniture or anything. Mantras (an often repeated word, formula, or phrase) also work well, such as “I am Peace and Love”.  It is simply a statement that you resonate with as truth.  In your meditations focus on your desires in a positive way as if it is already true.

For Instance, say you desire Peace in your life, get comfortable, relax, let go, and focus on Peace.  Ask yourself questions such as these.  What does Peace mean?  What does it feel like?  Is it a place?  Is it temporary or permanent?  Where does it come from?  You get the point, to simply dwell deeper on the subject or object of focus.  It is also helpful to imagine Peace as a building and you are exploring its many levels starting with the grand front door.  See it in your mind!  Walking up will raise your consciousness and going into the basement will expose your fears which can be quite healing.

If another thought comes in, allow it to pass, and re-focus on the subject.  At first this will happen frequently, so just relax, and let it flow.  As you practice meditation it gets easier and easier, but the changes are not always apparent.  Not to worry, change is constant and with focus the change is in the order of increased energy!  If things appear to be going poorly that is OK too.  Whether you are experiencing this truth you meditation upon is due to many factors.  Some of which I discuss in my first book, Livin’ Large.

Suffice it to say that thoughts plus emotions equal feelings and let your feelings be your guide, not what you think you see.  Persistence and consistency always pay off.  Remember that meditation is a simple act and can last for a few seconds or hours, it can occur when you least expect it, like while cleaning, exercising, or working, or it can occur when you deliberately focus on it.  Without meditation in its purest form humans would perish!  So you do it already, and you can get much greater benefit by doing it on purpose.  Awareness is the path to freedom.

What you focus on – Grows

Where you put your attention, your energy goes.  Another way to say that is an object in motion tends to stay in motion. This is basic physics and easily provable with a little time and effort.  Of course, physics is nothing more than the study of physical “things”.  How does this affect me?  Well, everyday gravity affects you as does the laws of motion.

Found ItSince I am not a physics teacher and simply an observer of life and how things work (or don’t), what I am telling you is based more on my experience than anything else.  Sure I went to college and had the usual science classes and even some math, but the point I am making here is don’t take my word for it. Be the observer and test life to see how it works!  Yes, get out there and break some eggs, just be prepared to do the clean-up.  When you are sitting in class wondering why in the heck you are there, remember this is Life, this is why you are here, to be the observer and understand the principles of living a happy, healthy, prosperous life.  For example YOU are the object in the law stated above and the more you move in a certain direction the harder it is to change that direction and the more energy it takes to change.  This means that when you have been doing the same things, thinking the same thoughts, and speaking the same way for years, it will take time and effort to change. So hang in there and stay FOCUSED on that which you desire.  It may take a few tries or even a few thousand tries, but it will work.  As you practice focusing on that which you desire it will get easier and easier to live the life of your dreams.  You do have dreams don’t you?  Oh good, then try writing them down and sharing them with those you Love.

The above paragraph is from the eBook “Livin’ Large” which is available free at this link.  I invite you to explore the four eBooks offered there and to peruse the pages of prose on the website, some of it may be relevant and some may not be, but I guarantee you will learn something.  Thank you for reading Transitions Blog!

Livin Large

This year of 2012 is the year of coming out and living large!  There is no time like the present, so why not make your dreams be true right now?  You think there is something to lose?  Do you think living someone else’s dream, following their path, or obeying their rules will make you happy or fulfill you in any way?

I am not suggesting that you get in anyone’s business, only that you take care of your own!  YES, take care of yourself.  Listen to your heart (soul) and follow your own compass.  The brain is logical and we have been taught to follow it’s guidance and that has gotten us to where we are now.  What I suggest is to let go of logic and rational thinking, in fact let go of all thinking.  Of course you cannot do this completely…unless you do.

Limits are created by you for you.  They are intended to direct your path and protect you from danger.  What they have become though is a walled off room with no exits.  Even a maze has exits!  Get out the “metaphorical” dynamite and create an exit…  Listen to your heart and you will know what to do.  There are no mistakes, only scenic routes and direct paths.  It is your choice which path you travel.

Unity in Gender Diversity is here to help you in this Journey!  The words of wisdom offered on its pages are intended to motivate, inspire, and guide you to reach for the stars!  Just as this blog does.  If you have not read previous blogs, please look them over and read the ones your heart guides you to read.  Be not afraid, the answer lies within!  Within your heart, within the pictures you see, the words you read, and the feelings you experience.  “Life is simple; easy is up to you!”

Transitions Blog is packed with psychological coping techniques, spiritual principles, and metaphysical musings.  If you have a specific question, please write the author and make it known.  Or simply leave a comment on this blog or another one.

Unity in Gender Diversity wishes you a most Joyous New Year!

Make what you will of it
