Becoming More

We have heard many times the expression that we are all one and that the essence of who we are is that of love. While we might understand these concepts mentally, what do they really mean?

The concept that we are all one is used widely throughout New Age teachings and indeed traditional religions, but this is a challenge to comprehend when what we see is that we are separate beings - you are you and I am me! With this conflicting observation, how can we really understand and fully embrace the concept of oneness?

From our personality or ego point-of-view, we observe our life experience and other people - and the planet for that matter - as being separate from and outside of who we are. This limited perception makes us open to judgment and blame as we seek to determine what is right or wrong and good or bad in order to validate who we are in order to gain the upper hand, or feel good about ourselves. Of course, in oneness, there is no upper hand, but rather a knowing of equality!

If we look at ourselves from a spiritual perspective, where at our core essence we are all from the same source of love - then it opens up a whole new way of seeing ourselves and all that we are experiencing.

The life force energy that we all are connected to, no matter what colour, culture or religious background, is of the same origin, and, like waves in the ocean we are individual expressions of the one, which is love.

The word love is greatly misunderstood and has many meanings attached to it depending on your experience of love and the meaning you have given it through those experiences. From the ego's point-of-view, love is conditional and we tend to behave and act in certain ways to feel worthy of love and to get others to love us. This behaviour comes from the belief that we are all separate. If we are already love and know how to connect to this essence that is already within us, then we find that outside validation is not the answer to finding love. It is who we are and is up to each of us to open and connect to that essence so we can be who we are in the world. This is how we change the world!

Unconditional love is non-judgmental, compassionate, forgiving, accepting, kind, truthful, caring and respectful. You get the picture! All these attributes and more are already a part of us, it is all about whether we choose to exercise them or react in other ways which are born out of fear. From this we can agree that unconditional love is an intrinsic part of our true essence and that fear-based behaviour is only activated when we are detached from our truth and get caught up in the fear of what we experience as separation in our outer world.

If we are already love, how do we feel that and experience it if our reality is projecting back to us to the contrary? This is the big question and one, when understood and embraced by all of humanity, can transform the planet in to a paradise of peace.

Let's look at how this works and what is being asked of every person on this planet. As within, so without; as above, so below; what goes around comes around; our outer world is a reflection of our inner world. We have all heard one or more of these expressions at some time in our lives. If we look at these expressions we find that they all relate to the same thing: how we see and treat ourselves and others is how the world will present itself to us. This is the same premise described in "The Secret" as the Law of Attraction reminds us that we are responsible for creating our reality whether we are aware of it or not.

The incredible gift in the realization of this universal truth becomes a powerful ally when we begin to work with it in conscious awareness. As mentioned earlier, if we are all one and our essence transcends all boundaries, religions and cultures and we are responsible for how the world treats us, then the people we are in conflict with, the people who are not treating us in a loving way, are actually those aspects inside ourselves that we are in conflict with and we are not loving. The entire disharmony we experience in our external reality is in actual fact all the disharmony we carry within ourselves being reflected back to us.

There's a mind bender for you! In fact our mind and the reasoning part of us will do what it can to refute this truth because it is too painful to accept that we are responsible and we go into the old blame game to try to justify what is happening to us.
