A Drop of Ocean

Every experience that a human being goes through belongs to every human being. Every experience that any living organism has belongs to every living organism.

Every experience that is part of any galaxy or the entire physical universe belongs to the whole galaxy or whole physical universe.

Everything in the ocean belongs to every drop of the ocean. Everything within the Infinite Consciousness of God belongs to every part of the Infinite Consciousness of God.

All of Infinity belongs to every part of Infinity. All experiences belong to all that can experience.

By the term “belongs to” I mean ‘is inherent to,’ ‘imbibed to’, ‘innate to,’ ‘part of,’ and therefore, ‘no separation from.’

The experience of taking the first step on the moon, belongs to every human being. The experience of turning the gas knob to ‘on’, at the gas chambers of Auschwitz belongs to every human being. Every experience of breaking every athletic record or murdering another person, every act of good and every act of evil belongs to every living organism that has the capacity to experience – from the largest of all things to the smallest of all things.

Every organism or consciousness part of the Infinite by the nature of having no separation, no dis-union, by the nature of being one with Infinite things, … owns all experiences that are experienced.

The Infinite Consciousness of God owns all experiences that are experienced, because no experience happens separate from the Infinite Consciousness of God. All beings and things that have some level of consciousness – which are all things that exist – are part of the Infinite Consciousness of God, and therefore connected to all things that exist.

As we do unto others, therefore, we do unto all Infinity, of which we, ourselves, are included.  This means that both dying on the Cross and knowing the full Glory of God belongs to all of us.

Previous Article: Love and Hate

The previous article was heavy.  It wasn’t very uplifting, inspirational, supportive or light.  Hatred is like that, isn’t it.

God’s gift to us isn’t hatred.  God’s gift to us, is that which we are made of – that which is our very essence – that which our spirit existence is based on – Love.  Love is our essence.  Love is our substance.  Love is the material of which we are made of.  God made us in His/Her own image and that image is Love.  We are made out of the spirit substance that is known and recognized to be Love.  For this reason, and from this substance, we live and exist.

We naturally gravitate to love, are attracted to love and long for love.  To all of us beings, love is the round peg finding a round hole – a square peg finding a square hole.

In contrast, we must struggle with all our might to avoid love, to disconnect from love and to push love away (and we do that.)  We must work hard to deny love, because our very own essence is what we are denying.

Many will say, “rubbish” to all this, in an effort to run away from love, in an effort to push away love, in an effort to say “no” to love – which in turn, is running away from ourselves, pushing our self away and saying no to our self.  We do this, because we’re so used to thinking this way – to say no to love.

Being True to Ourselves

We need not do anything to be true to Love.  We need not reach outward to find it, but rather settle into it.   We need not carry out any thought or activity in order to be the essence of love, because it is the substance of which our spirit is made of.  Even if we have shown very little of this essence of which we are, we were created at the beginning of existence as love, and we will exist as love – as our self and the true essence of our self – for all eternity.  Nothing will change this truth – no thought, no action, no behavior.  This is true for every living being.

The challenge is for us to choose how, and when we express the “true-ness” of our love existence.  At any moment, we can choose in that moment to express our true self, or on the other hand, express any of the other imagined necessary reactions to the experiences we consider not worthy of love or not worthy of a form of love.

God is the Consciousness of Love – the Infinite Consciousness of Infinite Love.  All the different levels of consciousness which we perceive in the Earth, from the “lowest” form of life to the highest form, are part of this Infiniteness and what is being referred to here.  Therefore, every action, thought, and behavior impacts God and therefore ripples out to Infinity and our self.

If we are unwilling to make these choice to express the truth of the substance of our essence – love – to be our self – our true self, how can we expect others around us or those we are aware of through the media or in positions of prominence to make these choices. If we choose to demonstrate expressions of “non-self/non-love”, how can we expect others to demonstrate the self that is love in return to us. If we are not willing to change our own expressing of that which is not love, how can we expect those who are learning from observing us – our personal example (of which their are many) to learn to change their ways of expressing.

From the essence of the substance of God that we call our individual self with our freewill, we choose how we express life in this world.  No one can force us to hate.  We can only agree to it.  Likewise no one can force anyone to love.  We can only decide to be willing and then carry love out.

Regardless of how much we argue that we were forced to act a certain harmful way, we still know that we were not forced to feel the feelings that led to that harmful act.  We were not forced to think the thoughts that fed the feelings.  We were not forced to perceive the other as worthy of harmful acts.

***

What this means is the phrase, “Be yourself” has a bigger meaning.  For us to be ourselves, we need only to be willing to love and to be loved – in other words, to BE LOVE – to exist as our self – Love.

It’s not easy, but with desire, hope, practice, patience, forgiveness, mercy, compassion and effort one day at a time, we can let ourselves be ourselves, more and more.

God Loves Ordinary People

God doesn’t need spiritual giants in order to work through for Him/Her to be present in our world. God doesn’t need people of great wisdom or anyone who is good at doing public speaking. God doesn’t need anyone special.

God can and does work through ordinary people – like us. God can and does work through any person who has the capacity to love. God can and does work through any person who is willing to help in some way. God can and does work through any person who can be open.

Each of us who opens our hearts and minds to assist or help in some way, opens a channel for the Consciousness of God to be active within that person. Sure, we may not be aware of the Consciousness of God, in those moments, but Christ walked among us and appeared as an ordinary human being.  He can work through us, and it seem like an ordinary experience.

The determining factor is that when we have our hearts and minds open – willing to help someone who may need help – we are focused on an “other” person rather than ourselves. We aren’t concerning ourselves with what benefits our self, or what we get out of something, but rather we are focused on the well-being of another person or many other people.

Christ said, “As the Father is in me, so am I in you.” He also said, “I and the Father are one.” Any time we act from love or kindness or compassion or mercy or patience or any of the other fruits of the spirit, the Infinite Consciousness of God is present, because there is no separation between Christ and Love, God and Love, and therefore, God and us when we act from love. The Spirit of Love comes through us instantly when we love another.

Unfortunately, our own consciousness is not able to conceive of an Infinite Consciousness. It’s sort of like trying to teach a turtle how to perform algebra. There is no comparative conception going on. But, conceiving of an Infinite Consciousness doesn’t have to happen for us to love, and therefore for the Spirit of Infinite Love to be part of the experience.

We are ordinary people. God loves to work through ordinary people, because there are so many of us.  He/She/We can touch more people with the love, kindness, mercy, patience, etc that we have within us. And God can then bless us with His Infinite Healing presence in those moments when we are open and loving kindness is extended to each other.  We may not call it an Act of God, but anywhere Love is, God is.

“Love one another as I have loved you.” God asks us to do this, also for the reason that He then gets to be more present and active in our life when we do.
