We Are One

04/03/2001

 

Many people struggle with the idea that we are all one, and yet to look at our bodies, it would seem that we are separate from each other.. Our souls blend together within the body of the creator. In fact there is only one, that of the creator. Most people have difficulty with understanding this concept. How can we be separate and be one at the same time?

   To try and understand this, I found a visualization that works for me. I would like to share it with you now.

Life is Like a Picture of Ice Cubes

Imagine a large picture of water filled with ice cubes. The water will represent the universe, the body of the Creator, anything you want to call it. It doesn't matter about the name. This is the matrix that the cubes  move through. Our matrix is the so called nothingness between the atoms.

   The ice cubes are made of the same stuff that they float in, (water). The ice cubes are individualized pieces of the whole, and maintain all the characteristics and attributes of the water. We are individualized pieces of the Creator. We are made of the same stuff and maintain the same characteristics of the creator. The ice cubes are individuals, they are representative of the 5 sensory personalities (us), that exist in this universe, on our planet. They move through the water individually as if they had their own mind, as we do. They seem to be apart, separate from each other, sometimes moving in different directions, sometimes moving with the group, as we do.

   In the center of the ice cube, it is more dense (as we are). As we move closer to the surface of the cube it becomes less dense until finally we get to the surface where it is melting and blending in with the water and the surface of all other ice cubes.

   All living things have a soul or aura, this is our energy source, it is bigger than the body and therefore surrounds it. Our Soul blends in with the energy around us, our matrix, there is no place where one soul begins and another ends.   We are therefore all one, there is no separation, just as the ice cubes blend together. A wave as to the ocean is another great example, as Robert Clark describes it in his book The Christ Mind.

   When we say do onto others, we are actually doing unto ourselves. its the perceived separation that causes us grief. We have forgotten that we are all one. If we hurt someone else, we are really hurting ourselves. When we do good to someone else, we are actually doing good to ourselves. When we give to another, we give to ourselves. If we do wrong to another, we do wrong to ourselves. Once this is fully realized, we will only want to help each other, because we will have the knowledge that it is ourselves that we are really helping.

   Although we are individualized pieces of the Creator, eventually we will return to the place from which we came, as does the ice cube. It melts, blends in with the water and then eventually comes back as a new ice cube.

   This may seem simplistic, however the analogy does give us a concept of the relationship between the Creator, and the environment.
