Separation is the Illusion

separation-is-the-illusionWhen we give something a name or try to describe it we create separation, set limits, draw lines or boundaries, but there are none. When we think of up we pair it with down, heads we think of tails, right and wrong, yen and yang, etc. In reality they are all the same coming from the root, which is one. Since there is only the one there cannot be two or duality. The coin is one just as the rock or grass in THE ALL.

 

There is only oneness, all being the same, but the concept is lost in the egoic mind that is trapped in the illusion, trapped by itself. It cannot know the truth because it is the lie. Only the true self can know the truth and it is already enlightened. When we look to the stillness we come to know the truth and realize we are enlightened. Not superior or inferior, because we are one, the same and existing as one.

 

Certain words imply separateness, but they are not accurate. The head side of the coin is like the tail side, they exist as one coin. It’s hard to reconcile the notion when we’re tied to the illusion that we are an individual, separated from all the other things. These things are not divided and are not things at all. They are one and the same only pictured differently in our mind, which is part of the illusion.

 

The divine is everywhere and everything. That’s you, me, the rock, the tree and anything else you can inaccurately name. They are all part of THE ALL. They exist as one. They are one, not separate, not divided, but one. Naming something implies boundaries where there are none so if you say tree you could mean rock or bird or you. THE ALL produces these, but with no ALL there is no tree, rock, bird or you. They appear only in the physical realm as separate, but in THE ALL, there is no division.

 

THE ALL is everyone and everything else. It always has been as it is never changing. THE ALL is not a thing, it is what it is, but even to label it as it is incorrect. THE ALL is and cannot be defined, categorized or described. When you become aware of the stillness and see the truth you will see THE ALL, reconnect with the enlightenment that has always been and know oneness as it was meant to be. Then the idea of separateness fades from what you believed to be reality.

Once Awake, Always Awake

Spiritual AwakeningOnce in a great while there comes to a person an idea that surpasses all the ideas that have come before. Such ideas come from necessity and jus such an idea has come to me. I am not the one that originated it but its very notion was such that I had to look at it more closely. The idea was that we are asleep living life in a dream made by our ego. An ego that thinks we are just this physical being, or separate individuals.

It’s been more than two years ago that I first heard this idea and I have long since awakened from the altered state the ego had trapped me in. Upon closer inspection I can see that I am not that which my ego had led me to believe. I am just part of the whole and certainly not the individual of my ego’s design. Though I am, I see that all is the same and I am one with that which is.

THE ALL has always been, for it is without beginning or end, and therefor time doesn’t exist. THE ALL is without change and cannot be added to or taken from, for if it was it would not be THE ALL.That which is not THE ALL is not THE ALL or reality. This earthly plain is therefor not reality, but more a lab experiment for some purpose that I cannot fathom. There seems to me that it has no reason for being.

Why then are we here? What is the purpose other than to overcome the folly created by the ego. Our true self is that part of us that goes on once the physical body has died. That part is awake knowing the oneness  the truth the unconditional love of THE ALL. It is and has always been enlightened, though there is always more to know.

The purpose of the physical being learning to abandon the ego seems to me to be the test. What that brings us is to the awakened state, which is where our true self has always been and will always be. Since time doesn’t really exist outside the physical realm the awakened person has always been awake but the sleeping ones need time to find their true self. Once awakened, and once again knowing the enlightenment they have always known, they join those of us in this reality. Once awakened all the lines of separation fade and the divisions disappear. Then there is no wanting for power, no greed no fear only serene loving oneness.

Unconditional Love is the Tie that Binds

onenessOneness or the knowledge of truth that we are all one is a grace for us to cherish. When we awaken we realize we have always been one with all things and enlightened. This oneness also brings to us unconditional love.

The love we hold for all things will not only change the way you look at the world, but will change the way the world looks at you. Oneness is the gift of unity, peace and harmony. In the oneness lies the truth or rather they are one and the same, for there is only the one, THE ALL.

Love is giving without expectation of reward, but the reward is forthcoming, anyway. The reward is in the giving as all that you give comes around and back to you again. It is the light that marks the way, though there is no way for it is always there, all around us, ever present.

Blessings abound when there is unconditional love in your heart. All that is and all that will be flowers and blooms in the light. Love is the tie that binds the world and all things in goodness, for goodness is all there is.

Duality exist only in the physical realm, as there can be no duality when there is only the one. Duality in the physical world comes from the one. It comes from a focal point that is projected into the physical world to create the polar opposites.

As individuals awaken the truth becomes known and their vibrations grow faster. Enlightenment is once again seen and known. Growth to that purpose is what we need to accomplish in order for the pending evolution to take place. It is the next step in the chain of events that has been ordered. Compliance is mandatory and will take place in due time.

Tim is not real a factor since it doesn’t exist in THE ALL. This is where the confusion comes from. We can’t visualize a realm as different as THE ALL, but it is what it is, unaffected by time.

Awaken To Become One And Let Freedom Live In You

In the days of plenty, when everything is going our way, we rarely pray for help or guidance or any of the other things we pray about. It’s when we are suffering that we want relief from it, or a solution for it. Happiness is a state of mind, but just the ego mind. This is the mind that makes us think we are separate. This is the mind that creates the problems and makes us suffer.

When we awaken in The ALL we realize we are one with the divine and though there is still suffering from aches and pains of the body, sorrows from illness or death, and even disasters like hurricanes and earthquakes, there is mostly happiness. It is the body that suffers and not the real you. The reality of suffering is only physical for the real you doesn’t know pain or sickness or death.

All physical things die or wear away. The true self has no beginning and no end. The true self allows everything to be. It does not know good from bad, right from wrong because in The ALL they don’t exist. There is only oneness, peace and harmony. As long as you’re awake all you’ll see is the nondualistic world of reality. Sure the physical body will get sick and eventually die, but the true self, which is no self, lives on and even in sickness it sees only the reality of its oneness.

Oneness is truth, the reality of the world, knowing that it is as it is. Knowing that no change is needed. Change is trying to control what can’t be controlled. It’s like trying to stop the rain from falling down or the wind to blow. These things are natural, just as waking from the dream state is natural.

Lift the veil, step into the silence, know the truth. This is the real you, the you that you want to know. The you that sees the truth and enlightenment. The you that perceives the world as it is and lets it be. Revel in the truth for it is freedom, real freedom from the suffering the ego puts us through.

Let It All Go To Experience Truth And Reality

When your world ends and the beliefs along with the self created by ego have fallen away, there may still be some residual thoughts that linger. These are so well hidden deep within that they could resurface during times of anger or fear or stress that they make you fall back into the dream state.

It is better to find them and face them before they strike during an extreme emotional state. Though no always, these beliefs were generally formed early in one’s childhood and have become so ingrained in the identity that they go unnoticed even under the most thorough searches.

Awakening can become shrouded if the beliefs surface and the dream state will begin again. The ego mind is hard to completely shut down. When these beliefs try to surface, dismiss them for the false beliefs they are. Give them no foothold or ground to stand upon and they too will fall.

The awakened state is the natural state, but you’ve lived in the dream state so long that it is the center you feel most comfortable with. It is not the truth. It is not reality. It keeps us separate when we are really one. the same. Knowing that ther is only the oneness, divine singularity can stay you from receding back into the illusion.

Hold onto the truth and dismiss the false beliefs. They will not help you on the road to enlightenment. They will not let you perceive the world as it really is or allow you to know the peace that truth, oneness, and unconditional love will let you experience. Let it all go and let it be.

In the Realm of Shadowed Light and Peaceful Order

Into the darkness, into the light. In a world of oneness it’s all the same. There’s no right or wrong, no good or bad. There is only the way it is, the truth, the reality. The separation is not real, the division an illusion.

What is real and what is not?

The path is clear, but the way is hidden behind a veil of grace. Like a tiny sparrow way off in the distance, that can’t be seen with the naked eye. With a pair of binoculars the sparrow becomes clear. It is all a matter of perception and when the nothing that is everything becomes clear it’s because you’ve brought it to you with awareness.

Cloud the mind of the memory of your true self, if you want, but it still remains. It continues to call even when you choose not to hear. The echo resonates, dying slowly, only to be reborn Cast aside your doubts and listen with your heart. In the heart the message will blossom to full bloom. Let it register as you take the realization and awaken to the truth. It is the natural way and there’s beauty in its wake.

Foster the care, create beauty everywhere. Oneness is beauty that spawns understanding and love. It nurtures the truth of enlightenment, granting the grace meant to be known and shared. Grow within the peace as oneness envelops you and you are no more the selfish, separate being the ego depicts.

Spread your wings and soar unbounded by ego’s strings. Therein lies the way to follow, the way we were meant to go. Look to the silence, it is the passage to a world where shadows become light, wrong becomes right and love is always in sight. Awaken to the reality of truth where you can be free.

Ten Thousand Lifetimes and Nothing Really Changed: Truth is Still Truth


There’s a truth that goes unspoken. It whispers from the heart and speaks of forever. It doesn’t gloss over any of the details or mince words. It talks of the oneness that is and the harmony it generates. The gentle flow of nature that comes from the oneness where everything is united.

To feel the joy of peace is to know the truth of the world. To perceive the world through the eyes of truth is to see that there is no separation. Dwell within the splinters brought together to become one. Forget the seeking and the wanting, because what’s there to want when it’s all one. Where is there to go when each place can be any other. Revel in the truth that knows only love.

Unconditional love that sees only the one, where there is no color, no beliefs, no duality. Each is divine and each is one. God is one, there is no other. The truth is the same no matter what you believe. You are what you are and it has always been so. You have lived countless lives believing in the separateness created by the many egos in your past. But the truth has always been the same it is you that has refused to see it.

Not on purpose, but because it was what everyone else believed. In fact there have been times when you even suggested that the ego world was not reality you would have been stoned or put to death. You would have been labeled a heretic and excommunicated at least.

Thankfully we’ve progressed to the point where we can express ourselves without being killed as a heretic. Yet when I speak of these things to others I’m labeled as odd. Shunned because I dare to challenge their beliefs. But in the end all will come to know the truth, it is inevitable even though it may take ten thousand lifetimes we will all eventually see the truth and know the serenity of oneness.
