We are not alone on this earth/Gaia. We wander our paths feeling alone, separate from everyone and everything. At times in my life’s journey, I have witnessed the interconnectedness we all have to the loving Divine Self / Source. Our minds and physical nature keep pulling us toward separateness and when we buy into it, it feeds the ego until it becomes unbalanced. Then we find ourselves teetering on the need and desire for more-and-more with disregard for our fellow beings and the earth we walk upon. I’m not saying our mind is the enemy. I feel we are missing a greater part of being human and connected to the Oneness.
When we feel separate and we begin to “think” of ourselves as me, we also then “think” of people not like us as “others.” There are no others!!! Oh, how I would like to shout that from the rooftops. We only have to look at our world today to see how well the belief in being separate is going. Separateness keeps us from completely living our lives and detaches the union of our True Be-ing’s perspective.
Once we touch the Oneness then we understand that we all come from the Divine Source, that everything comes from the “One.” The source is within each of us and thus we are all connected to each other and everything. No thinking necessary, Once we surrender our thoughts we can then feel and know the deeper unified consciousness.
The seed of the tree doesn’t think to sprout and grow roots into the earth and branch upward toward the sky. When we are conceived in the womb we don’t think about growing a body with legs and arms, or when to start our heart beating. That is all divine nature and our true being working with the Source to deliver our consciousness into this physical world.
As humans we crawled out of the caves and away from the tribes to develop societies beliefs and civilizations. We used our minds all the while as we moved forward and at the same time distancing us from our interconnected Divine Self.
Now that we are here, we need to practice loving mindful attention focused on our connection to our true being in-order-to overcome this separateness and recognize our kinship with the world we live upon. Only then will we live a life with satisfaction and contentment, casting away unnecessary desires for more-and-more. Through our kinship with all, we can make an even better world.
Blessings, David Bennett
