We Are All One

We are one. This theme has been frequently repeating itself in my heart and the message comes from many sources. It was a repeating theme when I read The Alchemist. Rumi said, “Everything in the Universe is within you. Ask all from yourself”. One of our neighbors at the marina was talking about how we need to realize that what happens to another also affects us. He was saying that we are all one. “Feeling the oneness of yourself with all things is true love”, according to  Eckhart Tolle. There are so many examples of this wisdom that show us how we are all connected in the web of life.

Each of you holds a particular note in the resonance that is oneness. That harmony comes about when each expresses his own true and allows the other the grace to do the same.   ~Rasha.

Do you recognize that you are a part of the people around you? In the book, The Little Soul and the Sun, Neale Donald Walsh talks about how all souls are a part of the light of the Sun. He says the Sun, would not be the Sun, if it was missing even the light of one soul. This is a nice visual representation that helps us grasp the concept of Oneness. I first started thinking about the connection of Oneness, when I read an Eckhart Tolle book. It was one of those amazing moments; when a paradigm shift hit me full in the face. One moment I thought I knew something and in the next moment my whole perspective shifted.  I suddenly became aware of the concept of Oneness.

It’s described as the web of life. That, like how a spiderweb cannot be touched without vibrating the whole web, so is the oneness that we are all part of. If you do something and it affects someone else, that action moves across the web like a ripple on a pond. This is true whether the affect you create is positive or negative. When someone does something you dislike, can you see that person is also you? The concept of oneness becomes harder to hold as true, when we have to look at those we do not like or disagree with.

Look at the Golden Rule from Christianity: “So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them…” Matthew 7:12. This Golden Rule or some version of it, is part of many of the major religions of the world. Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, Native American, and Sacred Earth or Paganism; all have a version of this “Golden Rule”. We see this as just the right way to treat others. If you look at it from a different perspective and realize that how you treat that other person also affects you, then you have another reason to treat all with loving kindness.

The concept of Oneness is something that I find is easy to understand one moment and elusive the very next. I would love to hear your thoughts on this concept. We are one. Treat your fellow travelers with kindness and respect, for the vibrations you put out into the Universe cannot help but return to you.

Thank you for reading my blog today. I love you. May you recognize yourself in the other, as if by magic.

16 Truths Worth Contemplating

Years ago my friend Bobby suggested that I read a book called; Oneness. It was written by Rasha. I have learned that Bobby is a speaker of truth and that the things he shares are divinely guided. He is one of those very special friends that, just by being authentically who he is, shares wisdom with others. So (eventually) I listened and read the book. This book had a really profound impact on me. It changed me. It pushed me further down my path. It inspired me. The book has recently come up repeatedly in conversation. When I see or hear something 3 times I know this is not a coincidence but rather divine guidance. So the day I noticed the book sitting in my office, I pulled it out and began reading it again. This time, I did not read it from cover to cover. Rather I opened it at random pages. I read a couple pages and found that, once again, the book is having a profound affect on me. See below for 16 paraphrased bits of wisdom from Oneness.

Awareness does not come from thinking but from deep knowing.

◦ We are all one.

◦ We are fully responsible for our lives.

◦ The emotions and dramas of our life manifest as physical conditions in our body.

◦ Place emphasis on simplicity and love.

◦ Do not limit yourself by believing you are who you have always been.

◦ Letting go of your ego helps you to recognize yourself in others.

◦ By allowing circumstances ‘as is’ and altering our expectations, we more readily manifest positive results.

◦ Sometimes our plans bring us to our destiny, even when the plans are perceived to have failed.

◦ There is perfection in synchronicity.

Compassion is the thread that connects us all.

◦ The path to enlightenment is paved with many switchbacks.

◦ Your higher-self is always with you; to help you and guide you.

◦ As your vibrations shift, past “hurts” will no longer hold the sharpness of emotions upon reflection.

◦ View your past with compassion and not regret for it ALL served a purpose.

Manifestations with the intention of the best outcome for all concerned are the most powerful.

Thank you for sharing this lifetime with me. I hope that these little bits of truth inspire you, give you peace, or perhaps even incubate the beginning of transformation within you. Please share your thoughts with us all in the comments. These truth are ripe for discussion.

Thank you for reading my blog today. I love you. May you find inspiration, as if by magic.

Letting Go and Trusting

Do you feel stressed when things don’t go according to plan? I think this feeling is common for many of us. In the movie “The Dark Night”, The Joker says, “Nobody panics when things go ‘according to plan’. Even if the plan is horrifying!”  I often find myself wanting to force things to work out the way I think they should. Recently, many wise friends have been posting things about letting go, trusting, and allowing things to unravel in the way they are meant to. This Divine intervention, fate, manifestation, or whatever you want to call it; is something we need to learn to allow. I have, for a long time, loved the Serenity prayer.

God grant us the serenity to accept the things we cannot change,

courage to change the things we can,

and wisdom to know the difference.

This prayer has been used in Alcoholic Anonymous since 1942. Prior to that, it was common to find it in obituaries. It is a beautiful sentiment and wise advise for us all.

One of my favorite manifestation teachers is Mike Dooley. Mike says, “don’t micromanage the Universe”. He teaches that it is our job to decided what we want, but not how we will get it. We have to trust the Universe to find the best way to bring our dreams to life. There have been so many times in my life when I felt like I ‘knew’ how things had to workout. Then everything swirled around and still worked out (usually better than I could have imagined), but not in the way I had originally envisioned.

By letting go of ‘trying to’ control everything and dropping ourselves fully into that loving, supportive energy that holds us, guides us, and urges us forward; we step into the flow of our life. As Lao Tzu says, “When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be”.  Another popular way to say this is; “Let go and let God”. No matter what your spirituality is, trusting that you are safe and everything will work out exactly the way it is supposed to, is a freeing way to live. To truly allow the heartbeat of life to carry you, is the best way to experience the magic that is here for us. It is also a great way to let go of stress and anxiety. When we are not trying to force things to turn out in a certain way, we are free to live our life.

I encourage you to start to notice what you are trying to control. Release it and know that you are safe to do so. The only thing you can really control is yourself and how you react to everything else. Face the future knowing you are moving in the direction of your dreams and your life is meant to be glorious. I dare you!

Thank you for reading my blog today. I love you. May you find it easy to trust in the flow of life, as if by magic.
