All in One, and One in All.
We are all connected.
Many of our ancestors have communicated with us since the beginning of time how deeply connected we are to each other and to the Universe. The golden rule, “do unto others as you would have them do unto you” is part of many cultures and religions. The Hawaiian elders say: “e piko kakou”, meaning “let us be family” while the Native American Lakota elders say “Mitakuye Oyasin” which translates to “we are all related”. A custom Hindu expression used upon meeting or parting, and used in the Western world is especially after one practices yoga is to say “Namaste” which translates to the “Divine in me bows to the Divine in you” or “I honor the Spirit in you which is also in me”. Although various groups of people have their own wording and language, basically the message is the same:
We are all connected. We are all one! When you look into another’s eyes, you are looking at God!
Want something more tangible to back this up? How many times have you been thinking of someone and then received a phone call from that very person? What’s the first thing you say to them? “I was just talking about you!”
Or how about those times when you feel something is wrong with a loved one, so you call, only to find out that your intuition was accurate?
The reason these things happen is that we are energy, and as such, we read and pick up on others’ energy through our senses. Since we are all connected, we sense what others are thinking, saying, and feeling.
I like to use the illustration of a Ferris wheel, which has a hub, and connected to the hub are spokes. Well, if you think about it, God is like a hub, and we are all the spokes. Because we are connected, we have direct access to God through prayer and meditation.
Now, Ferris wheels require mandatory safety inspections, mechanical checks, scheduled parts replacement, and lots of lubrication. Dust in the environment needs to be eliminated. And the main support bearings at the center of the hub require regular greasing and cleaning. Thus the analogy continues. Human beings also require routine maintenance, clearings, and healings of our physical bodies. For if we neglect any aspect of maintenance – body, mind, emotions, or spirit – we lose our connection to God and we lose sight of our purpose.
Since we are connected to the hub, we are in constant contact with it. Should our spoke become disconnected, we lose sight of our purpose and journey. We lose the love, instead becoming judgmental and envious and hateful. All it takes is one spoke – that is, one person – to disconnect, and the rotation of the entire wheel is affected. The cars attached to the wheel become inoperable, and in short order, the whole wheel runs off kilter.
The bottom line is that we must all come together and be love, be the light, be with God. We must join for the purpose of manifesting the Divine plan. In doing so, our God/human Ferris wheel remains in working order, turning smoothly, the hub and spokes working in perfect harmony.
I would like to share with you my ONE formula of co-existence:
Open to everyone expressing their connection with their higher source however way they want.
Nurture your spiritual connection your way
Embrace, encourage and enlighten yourself and others to learn and grow as desired so we can promote love, peace and growth for yourself and for others.
Let’s co-exist. All in One, and One in All. We are all connected. Namaste.
