One SunWhen you recognise that there is only one, one infinite being that is expressed through many forms, it's generally important then to live in line with that understanding. I call it The Way of Oneness.

It takes some time and effort to change from the old way of living to the new way of living in line with oneness. If that's where you're at, you'll know that it's not easy to always see the world as one. Sometimes things frustrate us. Sometimes people frustrate us. Sometimes we are frustrated with our own sense of individual self. But with some effort it improves.

The trick is to let go of otherness. There really are no others. There is only what is. Our old way of thinking was that the world, people and animals, were others. They were separate from how we saw ourself. It was us and the world of others. Now we want to let go of those old notions because we recognise there is only Oneness. But the ego is stubborn and wants to hold onto things. We have to practise letting go.

So work at letting go of the idea of 'me and them'. See that your human perspective and other human perspectives are allowed to appear different. Here's a useful list to help you on your way to a deepening oneness:

  • Recognise selfishness and let it go, in favour of natural selflessness.
  • Be kind to others, even if they may be unkind to you.
  • Accept the world as it is, and don't seek to control it.
  • Drop the attachment to objects, that you may have thought were yours.
  • Drop the attachment to thoughts, that you may have thought were yours.
  • See distance and change as the play of the world.
  • Rest in the Here and Now that is your natural state.
