I’ll Take One With Everything, Please…
ONE WITH EVERYTHING.
It’s become a bit of a clichè. Overused, overworked, overdone without insight into what the words actually point to.
Here’s another one:
ALL IS ONE.
Hmm. Same problem.
Ask anyone who is seeking this “oneness”, this state of unicity and they will tell you, yes, that it’s a given: All is one.
But there is an error to this logic of seeking oneness when all is one. Can you see it?
If all is one, then how can oneness be sought from outside itself? That would make two: Oneness and the one who seeks it.
This isn’t a conundrum for the mind to tackle. All it takes is simple seeing.
If all is one, then the one seeking and even the seeking itself is oneness. The effort to get this, to become enlightened, to know oneness – all of these cannot be separate from oneness.
Oneness excludes nothing.
Anything that is happening, that is being experienced, felt, thought or done IS oneness. Oneness appearing as that. It cannot be any other way.
the frustration of seeking?
The anxiety over money woes?
The elation of falling in love?
The aggression that starts a war?
The hum of this laptop?
This body that rest in the seat, the fingers that tap the keys?
The car that just went the wrong way down Haley Street?
The distant horn of an Amtrak train?
Oneness is appearing as everything without exception.
