I have a deeper understanding these days about the importance of walking my mind through spiritual concepts–getting my mind on board with big ideas. If I don’t believe it, how can I experience it? Today is about getting my mind to think bigger. To understand myself as part of the enormity of Life.
When you attune your mind to the Oneness that is All of Life, you understand your place in Wholeness. You are the very Presence of Life, and this Presence of Life is you! You are blessed through this understanding. In return you bless all you encounter.
Let’s try it, shall we? Let’s try right now to attune our minds to the Oneness that is All of Life. You ready? Go.
Think about all of Life. Picture everything that you can think of that is included in the term Life. Bugs. Fish. Trees. Birds. Amoeba. Viruses and bacteria. Just imagine the earth, as viewed from outer space, a big blue ball, populated with all forms of life. Imagine a closer view; pretend you are flying all over the surface of the earth, looking down at trees, plains, mountains, and all of the life that resides there. See it all, as you fly over the earth. Now imagine yourself tiny, and inside life at a microscopic level, looking up and out and all around.
All of this is Life. You are aware of all of this as Life. Life surrounds you and fills you. Everything around you, everything you have imagined is surrounded and filled with Life. Life is the same in me, in you, and in everything. This is attuning our minds to the Oneness that is All of Life.
See yourself in it. Become aware of yourself, in it. Feel Life surround you and flow through you and know that is the same Life that surrounds and fills everything. You are part of this. The Oneness that underlies All of Life, is in you. You contribute to the Oneness, to the Wholeness.
Because Life fills you and surrounds you, you are the very Presence of Life, and this Presence of Life is you! Can you feel it?
That feeling–the awareness of Life as you and you as Life–and the the corresponding understanding is the blessing. You are One with All of Life, and you know it–how amazing is that?
The Oneness of Life gives you that gift, that blessing. As you move through life, with that understanding, actions and behaviors follow in line with it (remember action follows thought). Now everything you do is informed by and perceived through the blessing of Oneness–and your actions follow suit. You give back to Life the blessing that Life gave you, through that simple awareness, understanding, and action.
If you keep this in your consciousness throughout the day, you will begin to experience, in full consciousness, the blessings of All of Life.
