“I can do things you cannot, you can do things I cannot; together we can do great things.” Mother Teresa, Catholic nun, missionary, and saint
With so much division and separation in our world today I’ve been reflecting more on unity and Oneness. When I imagine being in a state of Oneness or unity I remember the times I’ve felt Oneness during meditation. Words can’t describe how it feels effectively. Imagine your mind so quiet that you feel like you are not in your physical body. Imagine feeling like you are a part of everything – the earth, humanity, stars, planets, and beyond. Imagine returning to Source where you began. Remember who you are! I’m sure many of you have had similar experiences, yes?
Thomas Merton, American Trappist monk, writer, theologian, mystic, poet, and social activist reminds us that, “We are already one, but we imagine that we are not. And what we have to recover is our original unity. What we have to be is what we are.” We are both human and divine. We’ve come to remember that we’re not separated from Source and learn how to express our divine nature as human beings. Why not look at how great we can be together when we combine and use our differences? If we embrace unity rather than look for ways to create division how different would our world be?
Imagine a world where peace, love, acceptance, compassion, kindness, caring, understanding, equality, and so much more prevail. We can create this kind of world if we want but first we must feel these ways to BE within ourselves. This is where the true change begins. Change begins within. Rather than follow groups, political parties, or leaders that promote division and separation we can choose to BE who we are – remember that we’re not separate from God/Goddess/All That Is, Source. We are a part of the whole. We can imagine and create daily intentions that include the kind of world we want to live in.
How will your world view change if you reclaim your power and begin to visualize a different way to BE in a different world? What if you make choices based on integrity, honesty, and what’s best for you, your family, and others rather than a group you might belong to? I’m not saying you will notice a change immediately but the more you change YOU, your beliefs, attitudes, habits, and perceptions, the more people will respond to you differently. This has been my experience and the experience of others.
Martin Luther King, Jr, American Baptist minister and civil rights activist has said, “We’ve learned to fly the air as birds, we’ve learned to swim the seas as fish, yet we haven’t learned to walk the Earth as brothers and sisters.” Let’s consciously choose to embrace our differences and unity more. Why not create a world where we can all thrive and support one another? Remember, change begins with each one of us first. What are we willing to change within us so that the world can be a better place?
