"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."

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.

‘We are all One’ is more than a beautiful slogan. It is a precise description of the nature of Ultimate Reality. When you understand this, you begin experiencing life—and treating each other – in a new way. You see the relationship of all things differently. You notice the connectedness at a much higher level. Your awareness is expanded, your insight becomes very keen. You, quite literally, see in.
This increased ability to peer deeply into life allows you to look past the illusion and to recognize – to ‘know again,’ to re-cognize – your Reality. It is by this process that you remember Who You Really Are.

"As viewed by astronauts from the moon, the Earth lacks those lines of sociopolitical division that are so prominent on maps.
And as recognized here below, the web of interlacing socioeconomic dependencies that now enfolds the planet is of one life.
All that is required is a general change of vision to accord with these contemporary facts. And that this will occur is certain. It is, in fact, already occurring.
Moreover, the vision required is nothing new, nor unnatural. What are unnatural, artificial, and contrived, are the separations." ~Joseph CampbellPosted 2月 13th, 2013 by Oneness Blogger
There comes a time when we heed a certain call
When the world must come together as one
There are people dying
And its time to lend a hand to life
The greatest gift of all
We can't go on pretending day by day
That someone, somehow will soon make a change
We are all a part of Gods great big family
And the truth, you know,
Love is all we need
We are the world, we are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So lets start giving
"The great benefit of science is that it can make a tremendous contribution to the alleviation of suffering on a physical level, but it is only by cultivating the qualities of the human heart and transforming our attitudes that we can begin to address and overcome our mental suffering.We need both, since the alleviation of suffering must take place on both a physical and a psychological level." ~Dalai LamaPosted 2月 9th, 2013 by Oneness Blogger
To be so strong that nothing
can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity
to every person you meet.
To make all your friends feel
that there is something in them
To look at the sunny side of everything
and make your optimism come true.
To think only the best, to work only for the best,
and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others
as you are about your own.
To forget the mistakes of the past
and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times
and give every living creature you meet a smile.
To give so much time to the improvement of yourself
that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear,
and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world,
not in loud words but great deeds.
To live in faith that the whole world is on your side
so long as you are true to the best that is in you."

I believe you’re great, that there’s something magnificent about you. Regardless of what has happened in your life. Regardless of how young or old you think you might be. The moment you begin to think “properly,” this something that’s within you, this power within you that’s greater than the world, it will begin to emerge. It will take over your life. It will feed you. It will clothe you. It will guide you, protect you, sustain your very existence.Posted 1月 27th, 2013 by Oneness Blogger
