I changed the world today.
In contemplating the oneness of all of us, I could easily accept my oneness with all … except those who perpetrate hurtful deeds — to me, to other individuals, to other animals. How can I possibly be one with them?!
So I meditated on that question. Then my Aha! Well Duh! moment struck! In order to feel true oneness I must extend to them the 4 keys of healing: Forgiveness, Compassion, Love and Connection. That’s the only way to heal the divide.
For centuries our primary human response to resolving issues has been anger, aggression, hostility and retribution. An eye for an eye. But all that does is serve to instill fear, mistrust and disconnection, from each other, and everyone with whom we share this earth. It solves nothing. It widens the chasm between us. Doom and gloom and pain grow.
So today I chose to break that cycle. I let go of my anger and chose instead to extend Forgiveness, Compassion, Love and Connection to anyone who has ever hurt me, to anyone who has ever abused a person, to anyone who has ever abused an animal, to anyone who has ever exploited another for their own gain, human or otherwise.
I extended Forgiveness, Compassion, Love and Connection to the hunters and poachers, to murderers, to child abusers, to dog kickers, to farmers, to bullies, etc. etc. etc. to EVERYONE! And to myself for any energy I’ve put out that doesn’t foster the connection we all share.
So today I did a little bit to dissolve the divide between us all. Will you join me? Imagine, if everyone did that, how transformative it would be!? I truly feel that it is the only way we have a chance to heal our world and survive. If we replace the aggressive energies with loving energies, the daily atrocities in the world cannot continue and cannot take hold. Harm of another individual isn’t fathomable.
Are you willing to make a change to foster the oneness and healing connection as well? I’d love to hear about it 🙂
With love and peace to all,
