We are One

Life is Black and White

Life is black and white, if it weren’t, this would not be a duality. We have up/down, hot/cold, here/there, male/female, and dead/alive. These in reality are all the same, just viewed from opposite positions. Like a coin. So if this is all true, then how come we see colors and shades of gray? I have often wondered this myself until I learned the ways of the ego mind. The ego is our separate self. The aspect of life which believes it is separate from everything else. It is our individuality. In reality there is no you and me, here and there, but our mind makes it so.

It is rare person who can see beyond the veil and I do NOT claim to be one of them. I do seem to have a gift of systems or wholeness vision. So while I cannot see pure non-dualism (perfect oneness) I know it as the truth. Maybe I have faith, though to me it is simply a knowing. Love is all there is. Using words like Love, God, or Faith is where we often go off the rails. Our dualistic ego minds just cannot go there. It is a whole other Universe and yet it’s not. Take dreaming as an example.

Our dreams often are of fantastic places which seem familiar but are not real. They are metaphorical, symbols, shapes, places, or happenings which represent our thoughts. Dreams are something we awaken from and then struggle to interpret. This in itself tells us they are of the ego. We have the dream world and the waking world all of which are illusions of the ego mind. Nothing to get upset about, literally nothing.

So where does color and shades of gray come from? The ego mind, simply put. Our separate minds have created our entire world! “All that we see or seem. Is but a dream within a dream.” (Edgar Allan Poe) Where do we go from here? A question I have been asking myself for several decades, LOL. The obvious answer is Forward and yet that is unhelpful. My answer has always been go with the heart. Now what does that mean?

It is not a felt emotion, but a knowing from beyond form. It is the center of things, so let’s get to the heart of the issue. We are constantly making choices in life and it all boils down to are we choosing ego or Spirit (the knowing from beyond). Some call it gut instinct and I have to chuckle at that since our guts are full of bacteria with separate lives all their own. I think what they really mean is listen to Holy Spirit, not the separate self. Pay no attention to that which is caught up in form, shape, and structure. The physical world is not the path to follow. Simply put and I love simple, follow the unspoken, unfelt, loving path! Since Love is all there is, it is not about feeling, being, or doing. It is about letting go of all you thought you knew.
