There are so many things to say…As the subject of this article was tossed and turned around all week, I stumbled onto a real gem. You’ll get to see it too, once you watch this video. It is a gorgeous description of Oneness, as actually felt viscerally, by Bobbie Richardson. It is just a few moments, a quick journey that will leave you with a knowing of Oneness, a feeling of Source, an idea of where we are headed, a return to our beginning. I urge you to take the trip, you won’t be sorry.
We are not alone; despite the masks and the lockdowns and the fear of infection from each other. Having just completed an intense month of focus on Covid-19, within my own family, I’d like to share some perspective.
When I spoke to Bobbie Richardson today about sharing her video, she used the word “humbled”. It is a perfect word to begin the conversation. I am not sure how this will conclude, meaning the article and not this universal moment, yet humbled is where it starts.
For I have seen love in human form and it has been an honor to witness. It is a gift to be here at all. I am humbled by love, for it is an awesome power. It is beyond what can be described, so here’s a bit of a picture from some very human eyes.
This moment, right now, is one of introspection. We can blame someone or something else for our pain right now, yet honestly? That’s misdirection and avoidance at its finest. We’ve all done it and, perhaps, are still embroiled in it. Blame. Fault. Judgment. We’ve held onto these for so long now they seem knee-jerk and automatic. “I hurt!” “It’s your fault!” “Stop being mean!” “Quit doing that!” “You are ___!”
None of that matters right now. The blame game concludes without a winner. When it is all said, and it is all done, there is only you. That’s what Oneness is. It is you. It’s only and ever been you.
People showing up on your radar this year are mirrors. They are here to get your attention. Why do we use mirrors? So that we can see what we look like. So that we know if our hair looks okay and our outfit matches. So that we can satisfactorily present ourselves to the world. It is a self-check device; a mirror. We’ll want to look our very best for this next part.
When the word humbled is used here, it is not used as in hierarchy, but rather this definition: “reflecting, expressing, or offered in a spirit of deference”. We’ve been told that there was a line to get to earth for this moment, and now I know why. We get to feel, see and experience it all. Everyone here right now is a Master. We are walking among Angels and Warriors. That’s it. No exceptions.
When you realize the pure love of another being, especially perhaps, one you don’t completely comprehend, or agree with, it can be shocking. It has the effect of opening your eyes.
You see, Oneness is not sameness. It doesn’t mean we agree or look the same. Words like conformity or obedience are not even in the ballpark of Oneness. Those words? They are about control disguised as comfort.
And Oneness is not comfortable.
Oneness is truth. It is found in an acceptance of every other. It begins with acceptance of self.
The privilege held in this year, and this moment for the race, is found in each other. There is no other who chose your spot here, your place in line, for earth 2020. It’s yours. You chose it. You’ve made it. You’re here. Your purpose? To illustrate love in human form. Watch this clip to learn more. It’s one of our family’s favorite movies.
What I’ve learned, and recently, is that it is not my place or purpose to figure out other people or decide if I approve of what they do or don’t do, say or don’t say, feel or don’t feel. That’s on them. It is my place to love. In whatever way I recognize. In whatever form I decide it should look. In whatever manner that works. For me.
Because it won’t be the same as your way. It can’t be. We are unique and individual. We are also One and united. Not united in energy or method, no. United in purpose. We are here to love.
Your love may be sharing quilts or jokes or exercise or books or food or songs or stories or dance or healing or building houses or fixing sinks.
Whatever lights you up is your love. It doesn’t have to come from a single person or in a specific way. There are no rules to love. It merely is.
What is humbling this year is that I get to participate at all. I get to watch us love each other, and discover ourselves, and reach into the deep pockets of our greatest fears, (that we are unlovable, and will end up alone) – and risk sharing that in order to heal.
What is witnessed here and now is the awesome drive of our human spirit, the determination to complete this life with purpose, and with love. The power of love. Despite all odds, it grows every single day. It is mind-blowing.
It looks different than expected. It does not disappoint however. It sustains and holds and allows. It grabs each of us and asks us to notice how we are looking in that mirror. It averts our eyes from judgment and directs them towards gentility. It holds us together, even when masks and social distancing conspire to keep us apart.
We cannot be held apart. The single most perfect element of a human being is his or her heart. From there, love finds a way and carries the rest through. The rest of the humans. Your family. Us.
It is humbling to be here with you at all.
It is an honor to witness this transformation; to share the journey with so many gorgeous beings of brilliant light. Thank you.
We are One.
