Experience the Oneness: Christopher Brown, RScP
At The Home of Truth, we use the term oneness a lot; but how often do we reflect on just what oneness means? Oneness points to the interconnectedness of everything as Greg Braden in his book, coined the phrase, the “Divine Matrix”.
It’s easy to agree that we are all connected by air, light, gravity, and DNA, but why don’t we feel connected and at peace? The first thing to consider is the power of language to divide where, in fact, no separation exists. For example, the wave and the ocean are totally connected in reality but language separates them. Also fingers cannot exist separately from hands for they are one, yet our habit of speaking focuses on parts rather than the whole.
Our language divides everything up into pieces and somehow we believe in the pieces and miss the “whole picture” or wholeness…or the seamless reality of all that is. We tend to see the world like a camera in narrow focus. However, when we choose to widen our camera lens to take in the whole panorama and not just see the pieces, something happens within us...We relax into silence, we become present and we fall back into ourselves …what I call accessing presence.
When we are truly present with no thoughts the experience of oneness arises. There is no longer any sense of separation. We are One… and then the mind begins to chatter again, dividing it all up into pieces. Each time we feel the Presence, the silence, we can form a new habit and a greater appreciation of the wide focus of Oneness.
So for this New Year, I invite you to think less and be more mindful of the wider focus of Oneness. Let me know what you discover! Love, Christopher
