We cannot separate ourselves from the divine garment or tapestry of life. We didn’t make the world, let alone even our own soul, or being. The highly complex and detailed aspects of our lives are being over-stimulated and we’re about to discover that we are not only not alone, we’re not separate! As Christopher Bache said, “The beginning and end of one’s individual life become extremely completely unretrievable, and one realizes that one’s life never existed as a separate ‘thing‘ even for a moment.”
We are all ONE!
We are a “part” of the whole, the wave of the ocean that cannot exist outside of the ocean. We’re following one wave, ahead of another wave, and locked into union with waves on either side. An individual ego death has always been the goal of mankind regardless of religious label. From Buddha to Jesus and across the spectrum of religions and their leaders, the message has always been death of the ego.
And the ego wants nothing of such a thought!
There is but ONE God regardless of the name or nature we give to this Being. We can even deny that such a concept or Being even exists but that doesn’t change the truth. It’s time for the church, particularly in America, to wake up to it’s purpose and calling, which among other things is UNITY and INCLUSIVENESS. Is it not obvious that when there are tens of thousands of denominations that we’re missing something?
Differences there are but why the need to condemn and kill those who think differently?
A common definition of matrix is, “something within or from which something else originates, develops, or takes form.” That something is God, the Divine, of which we are ALL a part. May we begin to treat one another as such.
