Take a moment to consider how everything and everyone is connected
We all have those moments -
Do you find yourself, in moments like these, questioning how we can all be one?
- When others are rude or inconsiderate
- When you witness extreme disparities of wealth in those around you
- In a conversation where cultural differences, differences in opinion or understanding leads you to question whether you are on the same wavelength as your conversation partners
Spiritual teachings emphasize everything and everyone is connected. The unified field theory, M-Theory and the view the universe is a hologram provide a scientific basis for a connectedness of all things. Thus, we can come to know intellectually we are all one. But how can we feel like this?
Well, the next time you have a moment like the ones above, where you feel isolated, different, or unconnected, challenge yourself to see everyone as one.
Light Body/Soul Connection
Try it while commuting to work in the morning, for instance. Everyone is on their separate missions to their various jobs, (no one minds their own business and is as isolated as when in their morning commute mode).
Here I might picture us all as part of the body of the source field. I try to visualize the energy that connects all our light bodies/souls together. I find after doing this, I am more engaged with others. I smile more, find the time to hold the door for others a little longer, am just a little more patient in the line up at the coffee shop.
See the System
You can also picture yourself and the people around you as a system, an ecosystem that provides and supports consciousness or the subtle energy connection to spirit. To enhance this system you might consider your individual impact, how you can choose to enhance or degrade the level of consciousness that all energy flows to and from?
For instance, take an ordinary decision you make during your day, maybe its what to have for lunch or where to get your coffee. Maybe it matters to you where your coffee came from, whether it is fair trade, or maybe it doesn’t. Maybe it matters to you whether you are eating a lunch made with organic ingredients or sustainably produced products, maybe it doesn’t. I would argue the very act of making these considerations, just thinking about where that burger meat came from, will help you become more aware and awake in this life.
If you are interested in raising worldwide consciousness, doing this kind of work is a great start as it increases the level and connectedness you have to your own decision making power and the impact that has to the greater consciousness field.
So, the next time you want to purchase an item of clothing, consider whether you know how the fabric was produced, think of the plants, animals and people involved in putting the material in your hands.
Do you feel okay about the process?
Do you wish something was different, what would you change?
Is there an alternative that fits your values better, is it worth pursuing that instead?
Our products and services do not just land in our laps, there is a huge process that brings these into our hands. By becoming more in-tuned with the vary notion that there was a process, and not taking it for granted, I believe you will naturally move more in synch with your own core values. The more inline with your values and beliefs you become, the more aligned you are with your connection to the spirit and source of all. This strengthening of connections leads to higher consciousness as consciousness is the awareness of these connections.
