The ritual is One
The food is One
We who offer the food are One
The fire of hunger is also One
All action is One
We who understand this are One.
- Hindu Blessing
Ahhhhh, Oneness ....such an important reminder for me!
Sometimes I have moments where i really "get" oneness ...
and sometimes I struggle to wrap my brain around it!
For example, when someone says to me: " everything you have
is already there within you" ... I can't help thinking about taking a look
in the mirror to see I see a brand new car shining through my belly button!
Ok, seriously, when I remember Oneness, I remember that
my thoughts and deeds effect everyone and everything!
I learned something watching the Rosie show tonight ...
she was interviewing Patti Blagojevich,
and she began by pointing out that no matter what,
there is a family struggling here,
children being separated from their father
and a wife separated from her husband.
People in pain.
I realized how many times i have poked fun at that man,
as if he is less than human because of his role or his alleged crime?
Wow ... that is an eye opener that I needed today.
That is not compassion.
That does not support Oneness.
I am sorry.
