“You are not IN the universe, you ARE the universe, an intrinsic part of it. Ultimately you are not a person, but a focal point where the universe is becoming conscious of itself..” ~Eckhart Tolle
We see the problems the human family is struggling with, and really want to help. Yet- if the great mystics, sages and spiritual masters are right– rather than trying to change or improve the world, the most important thing is for each of us to first realize deeply who we are… that we are the world.
Knowing this, having faith and trust in our most fundamental identity, grounds us in the unified field of love and consciousness that pervades the Universe. We are no longer the social roles we have pretended to be, we are now focal points of the Universe, playing these roles… aware of the deeper “truth.”
Such an “awakening” profoundly changes our “point of view,” transforming our speech, actions and intentions. It’s like being a wave that understands how it is an expression of the ocean, or a cell in a body and realizing all the neighboring cells are a part of our larger being, greater identity…
Call us Children of Nature, the Universe, Earth, God, Tao, Spirit, Buddha, Nature, Christ Consciousness, etc… it doesn’t matter.
Much more important than any words spoken is to live with our hearts open, to empty ourselves of false beliefs, to be mindfully anchored in the present moment, to no longer be caught up in our false personas… to be awake.
To realize that every man, woman, child, bird, insect, flower, cloud, river and tree that we look upon is another reflection of our Original Face, a unique creative expression of this entire Universe.
Millions of us have had glimpses of this, we’ve been alternating between states of sleep and wakefulness for years, decades, perhaps lifetimes. We agree with the idea of our fundamental connectedness and unity.
But to really trust this as TRUTH without doubt is what transforms us in the most profound way, what opens our hearts to deep peace, joy, love, wisdom, trust and gratitude.
