Unity in Love
I spent yesterday in a very crowded environment and came home exhausted as usual. Because I want this reaction to stop, I went up and asked why this happened. The answer was: “Because you see yourself as separate from all these people. Keeping your barriers up is what exhausts you”.
When I asked why I see myself as separate I was shown that I want to keep my ‘spiritual’ qualities pure. You know: inner peace, calm, ability to be centered and forgive, all that good stuff. It really IS good stuff and cultivating these qualities daily has improved my life, my family and clients’ lives tremendously. But back to my desire to participate in busy activities with gusto and energy.
I asked to be shown a better way and I remembered sitting outside the gates with my daughter after the event, watching hundreds of people walk past as we were waiting for the rest of our party to appear. And I remembered how much I loved each and every one of the individuals who streamed in front of us. Some I recognized from earlier on in the day. Some looked exhausted, some were holding hands or cuddling sleepy babies. Every one so beautifully human, vulnerable, complex. I recalled how much deep tenderness I had for each one, individually.
Then warmth washed all through my body and as a I relaxed I felt at one with each person in the crowd. I heard very clearly: “You are me and I am you. I am you and you are me.” There was a definite flow of energy, a Oneness that can only be felt and remembered but not really described in words. It turned into Oneness with Divine Love, flowing through each individual and through me. All I could feel and remember was our similarities. All were equal, equally lovable and equally loved.
I am grateful for the healing and asking that this way of being become anchored in every cell of my body so that I can allow it to flow next time I am in a crowd. And that I can always feel the sweet tender humanity in every person I cross path with.
