As this New Year began I was reflecting on how powerful my connection to the Oneness of All is. As I pondered this truly awesome connection, I could see the potential it has for all of us. The connection to the Oneness of All is the key to realizing our full potential, our dreams, our creativity and our limitless options of knowing. It is this connection that will lead the way to a better world. To activate this power one must begin in Nature away from the concrete jungle and harsh vibrations of the completely unnatural artificial cities.
Eckhart Tolle (2003. p. 77-78) explains this beautifully when he says:
“Whenever you bring your attention to anything natural, anything that has come into existence without human intervention, you step out of the prison of conceptualized thinking and, to some extent, participate in the state of connectedness with Being in which everything natural still exists.
To bring your attention to a stone, a tree, or an animal does not mean to think about it, but simply to perceive it, to hold it in your awareness.
Something of its essence then transmits itself to you. You can sense how still it is, and in doing so the same stillness arises within you. You sense how deeply it rests in Being – completely at one with what it is and where it is. In realizing this, you too come to a place of rest deep within yourself.”
From this state of stillness, rest, and no thought comes an even greater connection. A connection to All! This connection to All is our gateway to the knowledge, information and creativity of the essence of life and knowing since the beginning of time. All of this information is there waiting for us to still our minds and to access it. It is there waiting for us to use. The knowledge of all creation within our solar system, as well as all other solar systems and the entire Universe are there for us to tap into. Within it, is the knowledge of all our ancestors both here and on other planets; the knowledge contained in the Universal Consciousness. We all have access to the Universal Consciousness. Each of us can tap into this limitless Universal library. It is within this library were we will find the solutions to this world of woe we have created on Earth. In this library we will find the solution to cleaning up the massive pollution we have created, the solution to free and natural energy, the solution to end wars, hunger, disease, and poverty, and the way for us to live in harmony with All. By connecting to the Universal Consciousness of All, we find a peace and calm that can be found in no other place.
Using our present mental constructs, we cannot even begin to form a mental concept of infinite number of possibilities held within the Universal Consciousness; therefore it is essential to enter into the stillness within with no thought, no perceived notions and to trust and to listen to the intelligence of the Oneness of All. It all begins with one’s connection to Nature. When one sees the Creator in all of Nature, then it is easy to see and feel the Creator in everything else, even that which we cannot see.
Why would anyone choose the limiting and constricting constructs of the mind when one can tap into the limitless possibilities of Universal knowledge?
