We Are Not Separate

I am struggling this morning. As I logged onto my Facebook page and read some of my friends updates, I felt a great division because of the political fighting which is currently raging in America. I have an eclectic collection of friends--very liberal to very conservative and everything in between. The funny thing is, they are all sure their way is best. There is a right and a wrong in their minds. I have to confess I am not totally immune to this way of thinking. The thing is, I should know better. In my quest for connection with Source, I have been able to experience His limitless nature. I know we are not separate from anything.

The Limitless is so hard to put into words, but I will try. Picture enless space. The essence--the energy--that is you fills this space and continues on eternally. The essence that is me fills this space. The essence of every song, every emotion, every blade of grass also fills this space. You know this because as you experience the unlimited you can also sense the presence of each individual thing. It's a mind-blowing concept when what you understand within this human existance is the limits of time and space.

The thing is, when you experience eternity, you truly begin to understand we are all One. The illusion of this lifetime is that we are separate from one another. We are not. When you fight with another, all you are really doing is fighting against yourself. This is the source of all our problems on earth. This is why every action you take here eventually returns to you. When you allow yourself to let things exist without resistence you are truly living the reality of Oneness.

Take the time to sit back and relax in your body in this present moment. See yourself in the first person with all your senses intact. Focus inside yourself to the place of your heart, where your soul lives. Sense your very soul and see its light. As you become aware of who you are, allow it to expand in all directions and connect with the Oneness. You do not need to think. Relax. It is important to feel and sense. Allow yourself to rest in this place. Take a little time to do this every day and you will become One. Let this Mind be in you.

As we begin to understand the Oneness, we will begin to see real solutions to the problems we face every day. Oneness brings health, wholeness and understanding. Throw away the illusion. We are not separate. We are One.


  1. The problem, though, is that people who have a black and white view of morality, politics, and religion, are generally intolerant of differing opinions and quick to put a label of "evil" on ideas they don't agree with. Others are more relativist, see shades of gray, believe its up to each person to make their own choices for their own how do you achieve reconciliation? Its difficult. I've pretty much limited my social circle to people who share similar experiences in life as me, with a similar worldview because I'm tired of "fighting" / arguing all the time. Life's too short for that. With people whom I don't share the same political opinion, if they are fellow church members, I'll focus on church related stuff where we agree and avoid political discussions. To those who share my political views but view spirituality as a relic of some primitive or unsophisticated belief, I'll focus on our shared political views and not broach the spiritual topics too much. Its weird to compartmentalize, but I prefer to focus on commonalities rather than differences.


  2. Understandable approach--many people do this. My solution to breaching these differences is to attempt to help others achieve Oneness while trying to maintain it myself. The issues you bring up are limited by time and space. When viewed this way, there seems to be a right and wrong. There is no right or wrong in Oneness. Everything is equal. Everything is a part and the whole at the same time. It is something you have to experience to understand. Words are extremely limited. It's something we typically forget during our lives here on earth.
