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.
When something shows up in our life, do we pause to appreciate it or do shrug it off because it's is know exactly what we want? Do we shrug it off because this is a fact we already know about self or something we don't want to hear? Think about why we turn something away.
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?
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.
Divine Balance is when we feel harmony within Self, when all life is in Balance. What does balance mean? Having Divine Balance is when we are in touch with both internal (self) and external energies surrounding us.
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.
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.
Reminders serve a purpose to let us know who we truly are. Everyday we are reminded of some aspect of our life and personality, whether it is past or present. When we have a reminder surfacing from the past, it is to let know who we are and release who we are not. When we are in the present moment and then reminded of a situation, this serves to let us not to forget our fundamental teachings and practices. We go through each day being reminded or our progress as an individual and a collective humanity. So what triggers the reminders?
The past few months of my life have been emotional and reflective. With the passing of both my aunt and mom, I was left with the task of liquidity their assets. During this process, it really got me to thinking the importance of "Stuff".
When the discussion of peace arises, usually it is referring to external peace. As humanity, we attack peace with war. How can we achieve peace when we always apply war or a form of war to it, i.e. “war on peace”?
