The Endless Knot

Portrait de Oneness Blogger

"At the same time, even from the most coldly intellectual point of view, it becomes clearer and clearer that we do not live in a divided world. The harsh divisions of spirit and nature, mind and body, subject and object, controller and controlled are seen more and more to be awkward conventions of language. These are misleading and clumsy terms for describing a world in which all events seem to be mutually interdependent--an immense complexity of subtly balanced relationships which, like an endless knot, has no loose end from which it can be untangled and put in supposed order."

"But the important point is that a world of interdependent relationships, where things are intelligible only in terms of each other, is a seamless unity. In such a world it is impossible to consider man apart from nature, as an exiled spirit which controls this world by having its roots in another. Man is himself a loop in the endless knot, and as he pulls in one direction he finds that he is pulled from another..." ~Alan Watts

Optimism Requires Courage

Portrait de Oneness Blogger

Optimism requires courage.

And optimism is rooted in action. It does not sit by and complain about what others are or are not doing, but rather takes action that makes a difference. Thus, optimism is self encouraging, as it can see the difference it makes and is compelled to continue doing so!

"Before you go to sleep, take five slow deep breaths. Allow an image of yourself to come into your awareness where you are thriving, laughing, and feeling grateful. Breathe it into every cell of your body. And remember, the person you see belongs to you."   ~~Debbie Ford

Raising Consciousness

Portrait de Oneness Blogger

So what is the CAUSE of the unbearable pain Humanity has been experiencing for so very long?

The CAUSE of ALL of the maladies existing on Earth is Humanity's distorted and fragmented consciousness based in separation and duality.

This consciousness is the antithesis of Christ Consciousness. It is the opposite of the patterns of Oneness, Divine Love, and Reverence for Life that are encoded within the patterns of perfection for the New Earth.

When every person on Earth has completed his or her Awakening into Christ Consciousness, we will all know that it is impossible to harm any part of Life without harming ourselves and every other facet of Life. With that realization, we will consciously and deliberately operate from the heart space of Oneness and Love. We will open our hearts and minds to the patterns of perfection for the New Earth, and we will find viable, win-win solutions for every situation or challenge.

We are Connected

Portrait de Oneness Blogger

At this weekend's "Embodied-Mind Performance" seminar in Perth, Australia, with Rodney King and James Woodfield-Jones, I talked about the fact that everything is connected to everything else.

Quantum physics confirms it. Logic proves it. Think about it:

If I'm separate from you (or from anyone or anything), that means SOMETHING IS BETWEEN US (it could be other people, concrete, metal, wood, rope, continents, oceans, air . . . space itself). It makes no difference because . . .

If something is between us, then whatever is between us must be connecting us. Right?

In other words, WHATEVER SEPARATES US, CONNECT US!

On the other hand, if NOTHING is between us, then nothing is separating us, and that means we are together. WE ARE CONNECTED.

So you see, whether something separates us or not . . .

WE ARE ALWAYS CONNECTED TO EVERYTHING.

What is Oneness?

Portrait de Oneness Blogger

What is oneness? It seems like there are many groups that are promoting the concept of oneness. What does it really mean and what would it mean to the future of the world if this concept were to be adopted as reality by a majority of the people in the world?

The concept of oneness has been in existence since the beginning, with the Vedic literatures of India showing how all life comes from the same source and remains eternally connected. Quantum physics has further given credibility to the concept by proving that everything is energy and that what we take to be physical bodies are not actually physical objects with finite borders, but rather simply energy that is vibrating at a lower frequency.

Using these concepts as a basis, movements such as the Oneness "Diksha" movement, Balanced View, Humanity's Team, and innumerable other groups are teaching how the concept of interconnectedness of all can be experienced in a tangible way. The results of this experience will break down all concepts of separateness and conflict. Instead it will lead to a loving acceptance of all aspects of life as being inseparable from you.

From this perspective the entire world shifts. The new paradigm will cause an end to all wars and conflicts and will lead to a glorious era of peace and prosperity that has been predicted by many traditions for millennia. We have the opportunity to actually assist in creating this new era of loving cooperation by simply living that way now and experiencing the joy it brings when loving acceptance replaces judgment and separation.

The Foundation of Morality

Portrait de Oneness Blogger

"The great German philosopher Schopenhauer, in a magnificent essay on 'The Foundation of Morality,' speaks of this transcendental spiritual experience. How is it, he asks, that an individual can so forget himself and his own safety that he will put himself and his life in jeopardy to save another from death or pain-as though that other's life were his own, that other's danger his own?

Such a one is then acting, Schopenhauer answers, out of an instinctive recognition of the truth that he and that other in fact are one.

He has been moved not from the lesser, secondary knowledge of himself as separate from others, but from an immediate experience of the greater, truer truth, that we are all one in the ground of our being.

Schopenhauer's name for this motivation is "compassion," and he identifies it as the one and only inspiration of inherently moral action.

It is founded, in his view, in a metaphysically valid insight. For a moment one is selfless, boundless, without ego."

Excerpts from the Tao te Ching

Portrait de Oneness Blogger

It is best to be like water
Which nourishes all things with out trying to.

Live in Goodness
Keep your mind deep
Treat others with kindness
Keep your word
Do what is right

In conflict, be fair and generous
In governing, don't try to control
In work, do what you enjoy
In family life, be completely present

Can you coax your mind from it's wandering
And keep the original Oneness?

Can you balance your life force,
And embrace the One without differentiation?

Oneness Proof?

Portrait de Oneness Blogger

Perhaps in the physical world our minds and bodies need proof that Oneness is indeed our reality. Perhaps moving from a belief to a proof is highly valuable at humanity's current stage of evolution. Perhaps this movement can lovingly give people some needed grounding. Perhaps Oneness is both a scientific fact in addition to a spiritual truth.

The science of a hologram contains properties of wholeness. If you cut a photograph of a rose in half you're left with two halves of a rose. Cut those halves again and you have four pieces of a rose. But in a holographic film, if you cut a rose in half you are left with two whole roses! Cut those again and you will have four whole and complete roses! And on and on. (Research "hologram" and you will discover this truth as well.)

To me this scientific fact easily and excitingly translates into a spiritual reality.

Parts - In addition to the beautiful idea that the sum of many parts add up to a whole, I think that each individual grain of sand, each little blade of grass, every single tree, every little leaf on every tree, and...each and every single human person, actually IS the whole!

Whole - A Wholeness Perspective has the potential to expand upon the beautiful and needed symphony-orchestra-like ideas of "the whole is greater than the sum of the parts" and "unity in diversity," into the Whole exists AS one single part. All-That-Is actually IS one individual soul!

In this vision, the illusion of separation has dissolved because a separate human being already is the Whole and the Whole already is a human being. This awareness thus moves this Wholeness Perspective from the head to the heart.

The heart has always known Oneness is real, yet the mind seems to be more comfortable with form, a separate and visible kind of form. Sometimes an energy of separateness such as an ego does not even want Wholeness and Unity, and is adamant in staying separate. Perhaps an ego can indeed be guided by Wholeness, because holographically speaking, it already IS Whole? Therefore, Unity can offer something that fearful separation would want - the forgotten presence of Wholeness that it already has! Affirmations like "I am already enough just as I am," "I am Whole in this very moment," and "I don't really need to strive for more" really rings true and fits like a comfortable set of clothes. We humans, and all life, are each individual Wholes, not separate, fractured, or isolated little pieces of humanity.

My conclusion is, Wholeness is a birthright that doesn't need any condition outside of ourselves to make it so! This fact makes it easier for us to claim our natural inheritance of Wholeness. I feel we have more permission than before to make it ok to embrace that which before was considered blasphemy, and to authentically feel the fact/truth of I am One, I am Divine, I am Love.

Not only are we all connected but we literally are each other. We are Wholey.

Normalcy No More

Portrait de Oneness Blogger

"Do not expect your life to “return to normal.” That’s not what you had
in mind when you embarked on this odyssey. “Normal” is a concept that
has no frame of reference in the realities for which you are preparing."

~Oneness through Rasha

Interconnectedness

Portrait de Oneness Blogger

Interconnectedness is what is true beneath the sensation of separateness. It is the deeper truth, despite appearances.

Imagine that everything you need to know today, to be today, exists within you.

Today, imagine that you are not alone. In interconnectedness, the whole of humanity is ourselves. You are not alone.

Interconnectedness is family, think of everyone as a distant relative, a long lost connection. Think of everyone as having another piece of your story. That each person you may meet or ponder, shows you a little bit more about who you are. Who WE are.

Interconnectedness is knowing that what we do to others we do to ourselves.

Interconnectedness involves not only human beings, but the entire world of nature as well. What we do to nature we do to ourselves.

The mind may automatically go to the negative things we do, but today, contemplate this: when we nurture others, we nurture ourselves. When we care for nature, we care for ourselves. Contemplate this. When we love others, we love ourselves. When we are open and curious (rather than conflicted) about other ways of thinking, we expand ourselves.

Again, in the contemplation of interconnectedness, we want to put our attention on the myriad gifts, the greatness of humanity, nature, and the universe. In giving these things our attention, we energize and enliven them. So you see how where we put our attention is important.

In coming to a sense of interconnectedness, suspend judgment, criticism and analysis. Simply notice. The gifts of interconnectedness lie not in finding fault, but in finding the strengths that you can see in others and call out of, or to, yourself.

In interconnectedness, the entire universe is what you see outside of yourself, but it is also within you, and can be known there.
