How do we change the world?
By changing the prevailing stories, cultural identities, and limiting beliefs that have steered our evolution for so long. We need a new story and foundational understanding if we are to move forward in a sustainable and peaceful manner as a collective. The most dominant illusion of all is the illusion of separation. The worldview that we are separate, distinct beings all trying to survive breeds fear itself — along with lack, competition, violence, enslavement, and, ultimately, self-destruction. To change our path towards one of sustainability, our focus must be on the interconnectedness of all Life. Nothing is truly separate — all things are part of the One, the Great Source of All. The illusion of separateness is meant to serve us — not destroy us — to show us a contrast, so that we can know who we truly are in relationship to all things.
The greatest joy and most fulfilling actions are those that are performed in service to something greater than ourselves…giving back to life in some way for the gift of being alive! Ultimately, what benefits another also benefits us, for we are all connected. This works both ways: what benefits us individually actually serves all others as well. As we move beyond the illusion of separation, we begin to see the world in a whole new light. A way of peace, love, power, and harmony for all becomes possible when we know that we are all truly One.
“Everything we do to this world, we are doing, on some level, to ourselves.”
Remember, Oneness does not equal Sameness — so let us always respect and honor our differences, treating others as we want to be treated: with dignity, kindness, and compassion.
