The Nature Of ‘Oneness’
*THERE ARE NO BOUNDARIES between you and I, nature and the universe – we are all inextricably connected through an ubiquitous web of consciousness. As human beings, we are an expression of nature. We unfortunately sometimes see ourselves above and separate from the natural world and herein lies our problem.
Until we recognize that we all come from the ‘One Source’ we will always be in a state of separation. By understanding this connection between all things we can thus awaken to the realities that exist beyond our present degree of understanding.
All things have been created by the ‘Source of Divine Energy’. From one seed a giant tree grows that can produce fruit in abundance. From the fruit produced other seeds are born. This cycle of abundance is continuous. Because of the ‘Oneness’ of nature it is also reliant upon co-operation.
Without the bee, other insects and birds to pollinate the flowers; the tree will not bear fruit. Likewise, to enable us and all life to procreate requires the participation of two opposing sexes of the same species. Everything is intricately connected in a wonderful synchronisation of nature.
Nature is our grandest teacher yet for many it is merely a resource to be used and exploited for mankind’s own selfish purposes. We are at one with everything in the universe. Only by experiencing nature can we experience our own true natural and spiritual state of being.
Nature allows us to experience states of freedom and take us to places of beauty, serenity and awe. That sunset over the ocean, the silence and beauty of falling snow, the rustle of leaves in autumn, are experiences that are uplifting to the heart and soul.
Why? It reminds us of our true nature, that of ‘Oneness’. When we experience nature we experience a stillness that is in essence the divine state of nature – and our divine state of being…
