All beings on our planet are interconnected, but, living in a culture of alienation, we feel separated from one another, and from the world. We feel lonely and insecure, in a cold world that is external to us and which is indifferent and possibly hostile to us. The more separated we feel, the more stressed we become, and afraid — afraid to open our hearts and trust people, which results in the competition and the war mentality that prevails in our society. Our worldview of separation is also contributing to the destruction of the earth. If the world is separate from us, why not control it, dominate it, and exploit it for our own personal gain? This is how we think, forgetting that we are destroying the very planet that we inhabit and sustains us. Only once we realize that we are all one, will we be able to live at peace with ourselves and our fellow human beings, as well as in harmony with the natural world. ~Sofo Archon
how can it be that we don’t know who we are? how can it be that we can’t really acknowledge ourselves? how can it be that we can’t be ourselves?
inquiry for today~ notice separation from self and others…..be still for a moment and then forgive whatever is getting in the way……
The divine has such passionate creativity and instinct for the fully inhabited life. If you allow yourself to be the person that you are, then everything will come into rhythm. If you live the life you love, you will receive shelter and blessings. Sometimes the great famine of blessing in and around us derives from the fact that we are not living the life we love, rather we are living the life that is expected of us. We have fallen out of rhythm with the secret signature and light of our own nature. ~John O’Donohue
