"We are all visitors to this time, this place. We are just passing through. Our purpose here is to observe, to learn, to grow, to love... and then we return home." Australian Aboriginal Proverb
All is one.
Every human being is a self-contained unit with a conscience of their own. An individual's thoughts and feelings are hidden within them, unexposed to all other human beings unless we wish to expose them or we choose to mask them by openly presenting a different set of thoughts and/or feelings.
Therefore, every human being is an island -- alone within their individual self -- at one with oneself.
Every individual human being is a distinct soul within the community of souls -- where all is one.
The Community of Souls, where all is one, is a distinct living entity within the Universe -- where all is one.
The Universe is a living entity, where all is one, within all that exists beyond the Universe -- where all is one.
I am a rock...
I am an island...
and a rock feels no pain...
and an island never cries.
(Lyrics by Paul Simon)
I am a rock on Bret Island -- with several dogs and an imaginary girlfriend named Tequila Mockingbird.
Mother Earth is a spinning orb of ignorance, suffering, injustice, pain and materialism, where the duality of good and evil must be overcome with a unity consciousness -- a body of unconditional love within Oneness.
Once you comprehend the perfection of the imperfection of earthly pleasure and pain, you are able to move on to higher realms, where harmony in spirit resides.
Our purpose in life is to discover our purpose within the Great Mystery.
Life is good -- it's just not easy.
Quote for the Day -- "There is pain in separateness and peace in oneness." Guruji Krishnananda
Bret Burquest is the author of 10 books. He lives in the Ozark Mountains with a couple of dogs and where after you achieve Oneness you can move on to Twoness.
