We are ALL One. You are not alone. Alone becomes All One in Unity and Healing. You are that which I am, which we become together. There is no separation— through healing and forgiveness, we unite. At One there are no limits, at One there are no boundaries. At One you are free—with me.
Oneness is a tough concept. How can I say, “we are ALL One”, when obviously you are you and I am I?
I get it. I get how people don’t understand Oneness, or deny it, or can’t grasp it.
I’ve been wrestling with this a long time. I still don’t get it, really. I still perceive through my senses in a way that separates and divides. I’ve come a long way, and I would say that I have faith in Oneness, but I do not Know and experience Oneness. But I am still working on it 😉
Here’s how I currently understand it:
Oneness is “that place” (that is not a physical place, but more like a mental place) that is beyond the senses, beyond the body, beyond all material reality.
Oneness is (simply, ha) a shift into non-perception, into Knowing, also known as salvation or moksha or freedom.
This place can be called (and even has been called) Pure Consciousness, Pure Love.
It is “Oneness” because in that place of no-perception, Everything is simply Known as Everything.
But here on planet earth, we live with senses, in a material reality, with brains that like to categorize and think, and discern, and judge.
So we have to teach our brains to go beyond, to let go of perception, discernment, judgement, and all of its divisions.
This is (one of the) the role(s) of healing and forgiveness. In a moment of healing, we “perceive” ourselves as whole. In a moment of forgiveness, we unite with another person.
We can do this again and again and again, with every moment, with every perception: heal and forgive, heal and forgive, heal and forgive.
The more we do this, the more our little brains expand into broader perceptions of wholeness and unity. But it takes time, because our brains like to work how they work (separating, categorizing, etc), and we do not really insist on shaping our brains in a new way. The more we practice heal and forgive, heal and forgive, heal and forgive, the more our brains evolve, the faster we get beyond perception.
Oh, and the Holy Spirit is the great unifier. Working with the Holy Spirit is a way to speed up teaching the brain to evolve. The Holy Spirit is a bridge spanning from separation to Oneness, that we may cross more easily.
