As we begin our third day, it becomes important that we look at all of the relationships currently in our lives; our physical, daily life contacts. You do not exist in isolation. Even if you live alone, you have a mail carrier, a grocer and a landlord. You have a job and work mates. Each of these counts.
It is never true that you can see yourself as One with some of us, but not with others of us. One is a singular mindset. It sort of blows out of the water words like superior, prejudice, privileged, bigotry and segregation. This is not to say those thoughts don’t exist, they do, yet in the face of One, they become illusion. Can I declare with a straight face that one finger is better than another? Better in what way? All are necessary to the function of the hand. I will admit that my ring finger surpasses my thumb when it comes to wearing certain jewelry, yet I would mourn equally the loss of either.
We are here for different purposes. We have incarnated to evolve and in this year, 2012, we have a ticket on the fast train to enlightenment. Our beginnings and paths differ, but not our goal.
So, what does Oneness look like in a sea of faces and bodies and nations and religions? It looks like love. It means no one is dismissed as irrelevant; old or young, patriot or anarchist, Muslim or Jew, gay or straight, black or white, yellow or red, Republican or Democrat, off-world or on-world. “Ohana means family. Family means nobody gets left behind. Or forgotten.” (Lilo & Stitch, 2002)
As we contemplate Oneness, start at home. We are One. All of us, together, speak a singular voice. When you hear someone that irritates, frustrates, offends or annoys you, resist the urge to correct or ignore or dismiss. Breathe. It’s all you and all okay. These are not lesser versions of Oneness, and they are not wrong, they are merely alternate expressions of humanity. Each expression is divine.
We are One unique fabric called Man. Our richness and texture is expressed in our diversity. We are 7 billion+ threads – woven together with a Master’s touch. Relish the One that we are. You can see it everywhere, your mirror, your family, your street, your town, and our world.
Start local, real local. Appreciate each component of you, and then move out to your community. “Nobody gets left behind. Or forgotten”
Without any condition at all, I love you. You are the physical manifestation of One’s thought; a perfect intention, every detail a miracle. Your light illuminates our home; this planet is a beacon of love. See your reflection everywhere you look, it is – and you are gorgeous!
You are the One we’ve been waiting for.
See you tomorrow,
(Insert Your Name Here)
We are swimming in a sea of shoulds. The list of what we must do in order to ascend is almost as long as our 3D list. These 3D lists were created by those who would keep you so busy being you, that you’d lose the very essence of your being. It would appear that we’ve traded one list for another. While it is true that there are things that inhibit spiritual growth and others that propel it; none of them exist outside of you.
What this means is that any activity can become a sacred activity. It is the state and intent of our heart that determines our experience. In much the same way that you can manipulate the body to orgasm, you can orchestrate the body to spiritual heights utilizing certain practices. There is a difference however in the depth of orgasm as well as the radiance of spiritual light that you reach. That difference would be determined by the heart. This is your most powerful organ.
In fact, the heart becomes critical not only to the fact of life (if it beats you have life and if it doesn’t, you don’t), but also to the quality of the very life that you have. Where the heart is involved there is a deeper level of intensity, a richness of sensation and completeness. Satisfaction and sustained effects are only possible in any lasting way, through the heart.
You have all you need for bliss. Just love. Once you find and accept the divinity that you are, your every waking moment will emulate Agape.
To achieve bliss is not possible in isolation. We are One. The One that you are, is evidenced everywhere. You cannot be alone.
There is no sea of shoulds, there are oceans of possibilities. What you will never know is the path of another soul. It is not possible to know the motivation of another; it is only possible to discern your own truth. For truth is something that you feel. It has a frequency all its own. You recognize its vibration. It is felt deeply and resonates throughout your being.
Self love brings us to a point of knowing. It becomes the salve to heal all wounds. Once you understand that all pain is self-inflicted, you can heal.
We are here to transform a population. My evolution is yours as well; we are One. Our method is self-transformation. We are on the path of Unity; the road of the pure of heart. This is the place we each are headed.
What I call love and another terms divinity are in fact one and the same. Both are the recognition of an inner God. This is the ultimate destination no matter the course chosen. It is the discovery that love, when felt for every nuance of you, is the truth dwelling in every flicker of light and life you encounter. It begins and ends there, at your core, your heart, your divine self.
“You are no longer interested in being (INSERT YOUR NAME HERE); you are interested in being the physical expression of divinity.” *
This is the ultimate truth, your purpose; it is completely attainable – now.
You are the One you’ve been waiting for.
Today begins the second half of this Quest.
The path to Agape will take us to Oneness. Self love is love of the One that you are. The One that you are is a piece of divinity. We are connected. We spring from Source, and we have never let go. So we are moving in a circle, finding our way home, returning to the beginning, which is One.
The path to Oneness is Agape. Do you see how this works? Absolute love for you yields Universal Unconditional Love. There are in fact no separators between you and us. Once you accept yourself completely, we all start to look a whole lot better!
It is not that you tolerate or overlook our faults. It’s not that you would have made every choice in the same way that we did. It’s not that you even want to spend a great deal of time with us. It’s that you understand at a very deep level that we are alternate versions of you. Loving you means, by definition, that you love the rest of us.
It’s that easy and that challenging. Our world is a hologram. The best science today doesn’t know precisely how it works, yet quantum physics tells us what’s in our minds is projected out to become what’s in our world. What you think about yourself is what you will see in everyone else.
Fill your head with love and what will happen to your life will astound you. Imagine a world filled with people who loved themselves. This is what we are here for; to create and participate in that world.
We’ve been practicing for such a long time – trying out a little agape here and some unconditional love there. Never sure when the show was set to begin, we fell back often to self hatred. There have been so many reasons! Our bodies, our jobs, our grades, our past and our relationships each offer plenty of opportunity for failure, disappointment and blame.
Well its show time. We’ve had our dress rehearsal. We know our lines and we know how this story ends. This curtain will close on a myriad of wonderful depictions of unity. We’ve been singing songs of love and writing movies of success forever – now it’s time to sing them in our everyday and watch them play out on our streets. We’ve been telling ourselves our own story – we just never knew it was real.
It is real. Most of what we’ve been force fed is the lie. You have no enemies. God has no favorites. There are no mistakes. Judgment is an archaic idea that creates fear and diminishes your power. It is not possible to hold judgment while loving absolutely.
Your power resides in your love. This strength is yours right now. Call it forth. This light is what you are. Feel it rise up and watch the faces of your loved ones light up when you shine it upon them.
This is what you’ve come for; to love. Once you love yourself, the entire world is your Beloved.
We are One. One spark, here now to get this whole place lit up! Our light has been hidden beneath shame and sadness, fear and debt, servitude and low self esteem. No one has been able to convince you of your greatness – until now.
We know now that to claim our perfection is not arrogance, but truth. We are components of the One; self-love is the key to Ascension – Ascension for all of us.
We are the One we are waiting for.
It is an honor to share this time with you.
See you tomorrow,
