REALIZING WE ARE ALL ONE
As human beings it is so easy for us to fall into the trap of thinking we are alienated from our brothers and sisters and even our Creator. Often times we get "lost' in our thinking due to circumstances that seem to tell us we are apart from all the "good" we desire. We see others as being "apart" from us when in reality they are a part of us.Funny what a little space in that word does--a part or apart. See what I mean. In my humble opinion all of us yes all life forms are a part of each other. We are made from the same substance, and animated by the same Spirit that has created All things both big and little. I can honestly say I feel connected to each soul here on earth while at the same time feeling the same connection to our animal friends, to the sky, the ocean, the flowers, and on and on.Our differences are those we "learn" as we grow up and are "taught" the things others think we should assume as being the truth. But I would say just beware what anyone tells you is the truth because they are only expressing their truth and it may not be right for you at this time. We must all arrive at our own personal truths by learning to silently listen with our spiritual ears and seeing with our spiritual eyes. And most importantly I do believe is for us to learn to truly listen to what our hearts are telling us. This 3 dimensional world we call home is just a haven for paradoxes and illusions. It then becomes our task to discern what is truly the truth and what is merely an illusion or paradox.This I believe is a life long task and we can learn something new every day if we keep our minds open to what the Universe is telling us.May all of us learn to accept each other as a brother or a sister and then maybe we can begin to treat each other a little better. C. F. Potter states the following:"If you can feel yourself a child of the Universe, or as some put it, a son (or daughter) of God, you will never feel unrelated anywhere." And from J.B. Goldstone comes this nugget of truth:"To improve our circumstances, we must first increase our knowledge and enlarge our consciousness." The Science of Mind states this:Life is a motion picture of subjective causes. And also from the SOM comes this statement-Suffering may be salutary in that it leads us to a place where we learn that it is unnecessary! I sincerely hope each of you folks are having a most wonderful weekend so far. May the rest of this day bring all of you much love, peace, joy and all good things.Please try and remember to do something nice for someone today and in doing so you will be doing something nice for all of us including yourself!"HUGS" to all of you!
