We must strive for connection over control. Connection must be first because, without it, we become self-seeking. Once we become self-seeking, the life of others becomes unimportant. The fear of losing what we have becomes greater than compassion, higher than love, more significant than the experience of others. The outcome is the expression of hate, racism, and a feeling of superiority.
What we fail to see is that what we perceive as this other life is part of our very own and contingent upon our survival.
Suffering will be required to wake-up from this state, which is why so many suffer now. The pain is needed to awaken from the insanity of our self-seeking, and to see the truth.
Know that oneness is not some platitude, but the connection between all things that when explored through quantum physics can be known.
Destruction of the planet, animal kingdom, and the lives of other human beings out of fear or for profit is the demise of our future and the lives of everyone who follow us.
Life is not about being correct; it is about being connected. Too often in life, we choose to fight to be right over connecting, being in the moment and listening. This causes separation and creates an environment of discord. We can no longer hear what someone else says because we are too busy formulating our response and being right. It is my way or the highway!
Love, understanding, compassion, and empathy only show up when we feel connected with someone, and the oneness of all things. If we only see our differences, we will never be able to find the middle ground or any lasting peace. We will forever remain in a state of anxiety, upset, anger and worry.
Therefore, we can always be right, or we can let go of our rigid thinking and be open to experiencing our true nature instead of who we have become, a conditioned, inflexible thinking human. We must find our way back to connection, awaken to our oneness and begin living in the present moment.
If you feel anxious, lost or live in worry and pain, then you are being called to begin this journey. Do not ignore the signs because it is your time to awaken. Let go of your resistance and the fight to be right and step on the path to self-discovery. It is here that you will find your way back to your true nature, find peace and a connection to something greater than yourself.
When we live our lives from a place of wanting to be correct all the time, we create suffering for others and ourselves. We destroy our home, this place we call Mother Earth and we kill in the name of our righteousness. Life is not about being correct; it is about being connected. The more we experience connection, the more love shows up.
This is the world’s salvation; this is our salvation. Without feeling and knowing our oneness, love is a mere idea, whose fullest expression is never seen. Without love, we will continue to kill for resources and we will justify our modes at any cost until we use them all up. We will continue to kill for our differences and to gain power because we our correct.
The way out is through the heart, feeling and knowing our connection to all things. From this place, we allow our truest expression of who we really are free from the bondage of wanting to be correct. Free to love no matter our differences and freely showing our love from this connection.
