We are entities of matter and energy. We are constantly out of balance because it is easier for us to see and feel the matter we are. As a species, we put so much emphasis on the material world, our appearance and any tangible objects. We were taught to "believe it when we see it." However don't we have faith in our thoughts?
Many people around the world today are looking for inner peace. They are searching in many places, in many techniques, in many books and in many workshops for an answer. I understand this very well because inner peace was the reason why I went to a Zen Buddhist monastery when I was 17.
Over the past year of my life, I lost my aunt and mom. My immediate family. I then met my biological father. I experienced both sadness and joy in such a short period. After a period of loss and gain, and being on a rollercoaster of emotion, the definition of family was reshaping.
With all that is going on in the world and in our lives, it is easy to get disgruntled. Sometimes it is easier to let our thoughts go into the negative channels, where we seem to have a habitual groove, and ruminate on how bad things seem to be.
Oneness has been the center of my personal journey for the past year of my being. You can read the previous entries to follow my journey. The core belief of Oneness is No Separation, all is intertwined, non-physical and physical. I want to dive deeper into the human aspect of Oneness.
Our presence is awareness of our whole-self. As beings, we are comprised of organic matter and pure energy. However, our organic bodies are just another form of energy. In essence we are just energy in its many forms. Our presence is the energy felt by self and others around us. The presence given off is related to the range of emotions felt, everything from love to fear. When we feel a heightened emotion from life or situation; our presence/energy changes to accommodate the shift.
Whatever your worries may be, there is something you fear losing. For you, life is often a game you play against betrayal. Someone, or life, is going to take something away from you. You live in fear. Here's what to do. Change the game.
I’ve always thought of myself as having a positive attitude. Not all the time, of course. I think we all have our good and bad days, the latter making positive thinking quite a bit harder, those days when if someone says ‘Think positive’, well, I’ll leave it to your imagination.
Be thankful this day and everyday to know who we are and who we are not in the process of life. Be thankful this day and everyday to bring clarity and acceptance to situations and people who open the Soul. Be thankful this day and everyday to remember our source of wisdom, allowing it shared and magnified with Self and others.
What is Oneness? This has been a question that has been a part of my journey for a few years now. Personally, I understand it, know what it means, and even experienced it. I will do my best to articulate it.
