We create life’s scenarios from our mind, from our imagination! We know there is only the one and from the one comes forth all the events and situations we experience here in our beautiful dream time. The oneness has no need of others but creates the illusion of self in all that is. We are the manifestation of all that is, and it is to this awareness that we will one day awaken. We have been told for so long that we are sinners and unworthy; many cultures used human sacrifice to “appease” disapproving gods or God. In many religions the idea of a disapproving God persists today. How could we ever awaken to the divine when we have been conditioned to believe that God judges us? We are playing hide and seek with ourselves. In fear we turn from God; in love we run to God. Who are we?
Hakuin tells us that “when you wake up you will find that this whole world above and below is nothing more than a regarding of oneself.” Oneself! There is no other. Our awareness is distracted by our belief and manifestation of duality, of otherness. Einstein tells us that the belief in separation is a delusion of consciousness!
Realization of oneness allows all information and all experiences to be available to us. Oneness allows all information to be disseminated throughout our life. Feeling is our line of communication. With or without words, or pictures, or explanation; if the information is of interest or helpful to us, we feel it. What a miraculous treasure! There are no secrets and there is no other. All lives are available to us! It has been many years since I have read the Seth books by Jane Roberts but I know one of those books refers to Seth and the museum of time. That title captured my imagination. We have access to all the information in the museum. There are no secrets, and there is no other. Soon after his transition my husband came to me with a key. I could see that if he chose, he could return to the life he had just left. A life where he felt he had not always done his best for himself or others. We can revisit and live those times. They assist us in our path to do better and perhaps to atone for wrongdoing, consciously or unconsciously. And most importantly these returns help bring us to our true self. We are oneness! There is no other. Know thyself and you will know God!
“The disciple must know God as the One who eternally becomes the Many, the many who in their apparent division are eternally one.” Sri Aurobindo
