You Are All One

There is no separation

Between you and all you meet.

There is only connection.

For you are One with All.

Ponder this.

Dear One, there is no separation between all sentient beings. This means that comparison amongst you is meaningless, for you are One. This means judgment of others is truly judging yourself, for you are One. This means that harming another is harming yourself, for you are One.

Each of you has the capacity to shine light upon this world and beyond. It is your true nature, for your true nature is love. But the form in which you exist, the circumstances of your life have shadowed that truth. And so, you live a life of judgment, of fear and a feeling of separation from all around you.

But Dear One, rather than competition and derision, the true path for you is one of loving kindness and compassion. For though you are packaged differently, though the experiences you have seem so dissimilar, the truth is that your core lesson is the same. To walk in love, with all sentient beings.

Each and every soul who has embodied at this time has had to adjust to an atmosphere of heaviness and discord. This is such a distinction from what you know on the other realms from which you came. Some of you have adjusted more easily than others. Some of you have awakened to your true nature sooner than others. But each and every one of you is on the same path.

Again, we tell you that love is all there is. Any drama which arises in your life and in the lives of others is the result of the illusion of separateness. Can you begin to realize that all are struggling with the challenges of adapting to this physical way of life? Can you understand that all are in a state of awakening, many further along than others?

The key is to wrap each and every one who crosses your path in love. For this reservoir of love is limitless. And when you are feeling challenged and alone, dip into that deep reservoir that is available for all every moment of your day.

This physical existence is a learning ground for all of you. It is a world of duality, of light and dark, purposely. For how can you better learn the power of light without the challenge of darkness? And so, instead of condemning those who have allowed darkness to reign, bless them instead. For in doing the deeds shadowed in darkness, they have shown you the strength of light. And their acts have had their purpose for moving you forward.

Instead of chastising them, bless them and hold them in gratitude, for the lessons they have taught you. By shining the light of love upon them, you can help them to move through the darkness. And if they continue to live in shadow, do not feel as if you have failed. For wrapping others in love is never a failure. It is a lesson of compassion for you and others. And it serves you also, as you are connected to that shadow as well.

You Dear One, are on a journey of remembrance of who you are. And without challenges, without duality, you will never reach down and recover the depth of love which lies within each and every one of you.

These are times of great turmoil in your world. But you are ready for this. You have the power to move past the shadows into the light. And the path is a path of love and compassion. Offer blessings and gratitude to those who have walked in the shadows, for they have shown you what lies ahead if you take that same path.

Can you observe, not with judgment, but with compassion and love, with the understanding that you also have the capacity to walk in the shadows and act in the same fearful ways which you now judge in others? Can you see how they have provided the lesson for you so that you need not walk that same path?

And can you understand that rather than judgment, holding them in light, is the best way to move forward? For all actions have consequences, not only in your world but beyond. The difference is that beyond your world, the consequences are seen not as punishment, but as lessons learned by a maturing soul who is stretching its wings.

Look towards young fledglings as your example. For as they attempt to fly, often they stumble. But in the end, they soar to great heights. The same occurs for you and for all who cross your path.

You are One.

Offer blessings and support

As you see others struggle

On their paths.

Dear One With All of Thee.

What is Your Reality?

How do you see your world?

Is it the same as another’s?

Are you seeing it in its entirety

Or just a small portion?

And how often do you judge

What you see?

Dear One, the world in which you live is just a small portion of what truly exists. Even with the electronic connections that many of you use daily, you have not touched upon the true reality of the All That Is. But does this really matter?

The human condition can only observe and inhabit a limited space and time due to the physicality of this existence. As you have grown with your technology, you have more access to what is occurring in far-away areas. And due to your ability to hear and see the news from around the world, you are given a glimpse into other cultures and ways of being.

The effects of this on you can either be great or very limited. And often you question if what you are seeing is truth or somehow altered. What is true reality? How do you know what to trust? And are the judgments which you make based on a skewed vision of your world?

Perhaps you should consider how you move through your world. Reacting in a judgmental way towards another may not be based on truth. What you thought you saw or heard may have been somehow altered in how it was presented to you or in how you perceived it. And so the challenge for you is how to move forward with integrity in a world of potential illusion and mis-information.

Dear One, the power which each and every one of you holds exists within you. The answers to all of these questions lie there, within your heart. Your connections to the outside world may be offering truth or misguidance due to the human condition.

But the connections you have within, the connections you have with your higher self and beyond will always show you the truth of who you are and what you are seeing. It is that feeling that stirs within your gut during an interaction that guides you forward, if you can trust it. This intuitive gift is present in all of you. Though it often takes practice and contemplation to understand the way it speaks to you.

The external actions you make are therefore guided by your internal compass. And that higher connection will always encourage you to act with love and compassion. How can you judge another if you cannot really trust that you have the entire picture?

Often, the best course of action is to wrap the situation, the person, the physical location in light. You do not need to know all of the information to send love and light to another. Having this as your first response, rather that re-acting with negative emotion will have a much greater affect upon your world and beyond.

You do not need to always fix the problems of another. For wrapping them in light may provide them with enough positive energies to help themselves. Seeing another as wounded or incapable will only contribute to their struggles. Have we not previously discussed the energetic component of all interactions and how seeing someone as healthy and whole provides more support than you may realize?

Dear One, every situation is different, but love and compassion are always the best responses. These can be offered no matter how distant or challenging the situation. Let these replace the rise to judgment which so often comes first, even without all the information being provided.

Begin to awaken to the fact that you exist in a complex combination of seen and unseen worlds. Begin to consider the power you have to offer through the transmission of light to others; by seeing them whole and healed. And begin to understand that all are connected in a more complex fashion that you realize.

This is a new way of being for many of you and we ask you to contemplate the questions asked of you today. And remember the one truth on which you can rely, every moment of your day.

You are One

You are whole

You are loved beyond measure

For you are an extension of the Divine.

With the power of love within you.

Dear One With All of Thee.

Observation

What is it that you see

As you look around your world?

Do you see the same as others?

Are you seeing reality

Or an illusion

Affected by your own beliefs

And judgments?

What is your reality?

Dear One, as you move through your day and interact with others and with nature, can you be sure that what you see is true reality or an illusion? We have told you before that you create your own world. And your creations are affected by your emotions, your biases and your spiritual growth. What do you see? And if you look a second time, will your vision of reality be the same?

How much do you fail to notice as you move through your world? Walking around encased within your mind, thinking of past or future events, how much do you fail to observe throughout your day? Have you missed the silent cues offered by others, the nuances that reveal true meaning masked by your misperceptions of someone or something? Are you able to move forward with neutrality and open-mindedness as you view your world?

Human emotions can cloud your vision and Ego can encourage you to see only through one lens of perception. But what if, what if you were able to just listen to another with the intent to learn from them? What if you were able to observe without expectation and familiarity? You often believe that having seen something, having met someone, that you know and understand exactly what they have to offer you. When in fact the complexity of human existence can create new experiences with every encounter you have, even with the familiar.

The key is to be open and receptive to what is being revealed to you. Human ego tells you that you know and understand a situation because you have experienced it once before, because you have walked that path once before. When in fact, life exists within a web of connection and something you feel is familiar has changed between encounters, often in subtle and sometimes momentous ways because of this connection.

Consider your physical body and how it changes every day. Consider the forces of nature and how they change every day. Consider your emotional state and how that changes every day. Why then would not the world you observe change every day as well? It would serve you well to step back from that assumption that your knowledge is complete about a person or a situation. Can you approach your day as a naïve child, as if seeing everything for the first time? For indeed, you are.

Take the time to listen, with complete focus on what you are hearing; to see, with complete focus on what you are observing, to feel, to taste, to smell as if for the first time. The complexities of life can reveal much to you if you move forward with an open heart, with the awareness that what or who you are encountering has something to teach you.

It matters not if you have different viewpoints during a discussion. It matters not if you do not like what you see or experience. Rather than judge, ask yourself what you can learn from this situation. Upon silent reflection, you will be surprised at what might enter your consciousness and how well it can serve you as you move forward upon your journey.

Dear One, make no assumptions about anyone or anything, for all of creation is in constant flux and nothing remains static. You do yourself and others a disservice if you approach your day without the humility of a student knowing that they have much to learn. Your network of connection to all things has much to teach you, if you allow yourself to see what it has to offer.

The result may be a wondrous feeling of awe, inspiration or pure joy as you observe beauty where you once saw only ruin; strength rather than weakness; or gentleness underneath the hardened exterior. All are possible as you change your way of observing your world.

Be present

Be aware

Put aside your emotional attachments

And see through a neutral lens.

Your vision will clear and show you

A world more loving and beautiful,

A world in constant movement

Towards knowledge and connection.

For you are and always will be

One With All of Thee.

Your place in the world

Your connection to the All

The Divinity within you and all those you meet

Dear One, stop for a moment and contemplate who you are and why you are here. Think about the intimate connection you have with all that surrounds you, animate and inanimate. You are a part of all of this created by the Divine. And since a part of the Divine was used in your creation, you have divinity within you and around you.

You are never alone. How can you be with this connection that threads through everything you see, with each breath that you take sending out the presence of the Divine? You are the vessel which holds the Divine within you.  You are the distributor of Divine Light in every action which you take. You are the one who receives messages from the Divine and relays those messages to whoever needs to hear them.

You are the teacher of love, the student of life, the observer, the participant. When you pay attention, you are able to see the waves of energy coming from all those around you. You can feel the energy coming from your own physical form. Just rub your hands together and slowly bring your palms together until you feel that energy between them.

As a Divine Being you have much power which is available to you at all times. You use this power consciously or unconsciously in every interaction you have. This is the power to serve, to create, to honor, to help, to uplift and to love. This is also the power to take, to destroy, to judge, to ignore, to chastise and to hate. The choice is yours, Dear One, how you choose to use this Divine power within you. How do you choose to use this power towards yourself and others?

Every interaction is an exchange of energy. It can be that which brings a smile to your face, a warm glow in your heart or a feeling of discomfort and dis-ease. Learn to recognize how interactions throughout your day affect you physically, emotionally and ultimately spiritually. Encourage those interactions which bring you joy and inspire you to reciprocate the loving connection.

Review those interactions which bring you discomfort or nothing at all. And consider where in your body this unease appears, so that you can better recognize it in the future. Ask yourself if there is a lesson here for you, a judgment or expectation that is unnecessary, or if it is a red flag to walk away. You are receiving these cues throughout your day from your Divine Self. Learn to recognize these ‘gut feelings’ and learn from them.

You, Dear One, are never alone. That is impossible. You are always connected to the All and your actions will reflect back to you. Can you shut down that mind and begin anew each moment as you come from your heart, gently, sometimes firmly, but always with love for yourself and others.

Move forward gently, with grace and without judgment of yourself or others. Pay attention to how you move through your day and slowly make the necessary changes. Remember the power you have within, the Divine Light that fills your being and the love which surrounds you.

There is much joy in this world.

And your life is unfolding exactly as it should for you.

Recognize your place in this world and who you really are.

Dear One With All of Thee.
