We are all one. It’s easy to say or want to believe, but we all feel so separate. When I’m hungry or hurt or tired or bored, it’s me that is in that place, others are not and I can see that. I can see others be better off or worse off than me, so how are we one? There are certain times that you will feel it and it is impossible to deny, you just didn’t know what was happening when you did. We are all hard-wired to be compassionate for others, (unless you are a psychopath), But you may not realize how far that reaches and now primal it is. When you hear about a tragedy, you tend to gasp, put your hand on your heart and hurt. Remember 911 or Sandy Hook. These horrible and senseless acts ripped our hearts out and enraged us. We cried for the families, though we probably didn’t know them personally. We wept and hurt and wanted to do something, anything. Same with people affected by natural disasters. We say, “I can’t imagine losing everything like that”, but we don’t have to, because we can feel it. Deep in our souls, in that primordial place where we came from, where we still share parts of our energetic being with all others, we feel it. Another example is a more happy one, like when your team makes a goal and you jump up high – everyone else who did nothing to make the score happen, but are feeling the excitement and the adrenaline as if they had been on the field themselves. When you watch a video of people rescuing and animal from some horrible situation and feel so proud of humanity, almost shocked that anyone cared enough to stop and sacrifice their time and safety for this animal. You hold your heart, all teary eyed and proud. IN that moment you are connected with the loving energy of that being that is sacred as well as the one of the person, acting on their own sense of compassion and oneness, to rescue the other being. These are all times of oneness. These are times you can feel it in your soul and are moved to tears and at times moved into action. Charities, demonstrations and movements are started by this need to act upon compassion. So when you are crying at a movie, or at a weeding or cheering in the stands, look around, you will not be alone. There will be an energy moving through that ocean of energy that we share, that we all came from, that we all go back to. Our energetic source is the same source and when we are emotional we have our hearts open and are more in connection with that source. That is why you hear spiritual people talk about living from the heart. It’s a way of opening up to that cosmic source and allowing more of that connection into our lives. We in America and maybe all over, have been taught to shut that off. “ Don’t feel and don’t’ show you feel. Only the tough survive!” Bullshit. No one is tough, they may act it, they may get big muscles or a harsh off-putting personality, but no person is “tougher” than another. We all want the same things, we want food, shelter and to be valued. Period. Being valued may take different forms, like being famous, having a mate, being great at a job, being see by others, having a million viewers on u tube channel, or just having a good friend to talk a laugh with. It’s all about being valued in some way by whatever system of measurement we have been taught is valuable. So yeah, we to survive and be valued. If you can make another person feel valued, you give a gift that is beyond measure. If you don’t feel valued, then your job, relationship with others or self is in need of reevaluation. So before you judge another for their journey or where they are on their journey, remember they are creators that don’t’ know they have so much power to create, and that they may have lost their way or never been told they are as much of source as anyone, and that you can make them feel valued again and bring them back into alignment with that common source we all share. Because if anyone of us suffer, we all do. And if we lift anyone else up, we lift up ourselves as well.
So when I look at the truths and the lies as I see them, what I realize is that the things that appear to be lies are usually what other people or society is telling you. What appear to be truths, come from the knowings within. So these truths and lies can be different for each person, and I suppose the only way to really know is to question from within. Let your inner knowing be your litmus test.
