The word “Unity” keeps popping up. Here is my take on it. There are no actual sides to take. This is a big, crazy world, we don’t have sides, we have choices. And it doesn’t mean everyone needs to agree on everything to have Unity. Only psychopaths believe that love means, “Your total cooperation.” And there is no shortage of psychopaths running the show.
The powerful Unity I am talking about is of a higher consciousness than processing if we like or dislike what is going on outside of us. The incessant, fear-based programming we are bombarded with each day, is not where we will find Unity. I don’t know about anyone else, but when I don’t find what I’m looking for in one place, I stop looking there, and I look someplace else.
It’s time for the world to look someplace else now. The Unity most of us are looking for, is actually inside each one of us.
Here’s what I am talking about. The feeling when you first fall in love with someone, the world can do no wrong, it sparkles while we are in that state of joy. The world seems kinder when we are feeling good about ourselves. We notice the beauty all around us, and in the people around us, we are present, aware in each moment.
And this works in reverse. The feeling fades. The dark clouds drift back in. The fear and division we are constantly plundered with takes us out of the present moment and puts us right back to worrying about the past and the future. It feels like love has shut the door. When we are filled with thoughts of love, there is no room for thoughts of fear. We feel empowered and uplifted. We lift those around us. We function better as humans.
But there is another, deeper way back to that feeling. Once achieved, it can never be taken away because we are owning it. Our bodies listen and respond to everything our brain says. They are alert, awaiting our instruction. The Matrix is constantly telling us it is worthy of being the instructor, as it vies to hijack our precious present moments, 24/7.
This may sound silly, but when we say the words, “I love you (insert your name here.)” Aloud, or to ourselves, our body will begin to respond magically, just as if someone else had said it. Call yourself out. Keep repeating it. It will quickly move you back to the present moment. That is the power of love. We are all fractals of the Divine. We are love.
This is a practice. It takes about 6 weeks to create a habit. When you become aware of your thoughts about yourself and you begin to love yourself, it will change you and your lens on the world. Everybody can do this practice. No matter what you are doing, take a few seconds to tell yourself you love yourself, daily, multiple times. Even if you don’t like what you are thinking or doing, love yourself while you are going through that. When we say, “I love myself even though I am having these wicked thoughts about such and such…” We make the shift to still come from a place of love. So, in that moment, we are still feeling love instead of a lack or perceived failure within ourselves. It’s challenging, think of it as building a muscle, the most powerful muscle in your body.
When we turn that attention that we focused on our outside world, inward, and practice focusing and being conscious of our thoughts, we become present. Being present is actually the feeling we are looking for. It’s the eye of the hurricane, there is peace in the present moment. There is abundance in the present moment. There is love in the now. Everything exists in the present moment.
When we practice this and it becomes our new way of ‘being’ in the world, we contribute the greatest gift we can for the highest good of all. When we learn to love ourselves exactly as we each are, in this very moment, we are experiencing what we will realize, is an eternal love that grows and spreads infinitely. It causes us to vibrate at a higher frequency, we actually glow. We don’t think to harm or manipulate others when we love ourselves. But we also stand up for ourselves and don’t allow others to do that to us.
That is how we Unify as a world. Each one of us. One person at a time.
Meditation is a great way to learn how our thoughts make our bodies feel. We have the power to change our thoughts when we don’t like the feeling. Experiment with that. Think about something awful and feel how your body responds to it. You might feel it tighten or contract in certain areas. Then, think a loving thought and note the shift. We take our power back from the intrusive, “3 Ring, Matrix Circus,” with each loving thought about ourselves and others. With each manufactured, violent or hate filled event or show, we choose to not give our energy and attention to, we grow stronger and more Unified, wordlessly, peacefully. We don’t cooperate, we stay awake. We strive to stay in that higher frequency by thinking and doing what we love.
When we are able to love and forgive ourselves unconditionally, we also have that to give and extend to others. We can start over every moment if we need to. All that matters is that we have the intent to try our best each day, to move ourselves into that higher frequency as often as possible.
Everyone falls asleep and has to wake themselves up again. It’s a back-and-forth game. With yourself. There is no wrong way to do this and you can’t lose the game as long as you keep playing.
"Love the soul, not the role.” A phrase that came to me to help detach the psychos from my psyche, with love. That is how we get rid of hatred, we let it go from ourselves since we are the ones feeling it and have no control over anyone else. We are all here to learn from each other, each a student and a teacher. Every role played out on our personal stage, has something to teach us. When we are grateful for the lesson, the experience, without judgement, without labeling it good or bad, that is how we become powerful and Unified, globally. That is how we take our power back and live peacefully within ourselves and with one another.
We are all somewhere here in Earth School, on our path back to Source. We need to respect and accept where each other are in this process. I believe we will get there. Perspectives can change in a flash. So can everything else. We can Unify without being traumatized, we can Unify in the power of love. We do not need to give our power away to anyone.
