What is Oneness?
"Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I’ll meet you there.”
Living with Two Selves
Every person on this planet is a spiritual being in human form, although this may not be a conscious experience for many and does not seem true when we think of the aggression, greed and hate prevailing in so many parts of the world. However, we all share the same Spirit at the core of our being. This, our essence self or Higher Self, is beyond duality and remains an eternal Love force regardless of how ‘bad’ we may seem in our human form. On this higher level of existence, we harmonized with each other and love each other for who we are, while in our incarnated forms we may assume the roles of being competitors or adversaries. It seems a paradox that on one level we love each other, whereas on another level we hate each other. But physical life is not quite what it seems.
One of the quickest ways of reaching the point of Oneness with the All is to experience duality in its most extreme expressions. Although the opposing aspects of duality emerge from one common origin, they certainly don’t seem to. A thick veil separates duality from oneness. Our Higher Self operates beyond this veil in the field of oneness, whereas our ego nature plays in the field of duality. The two selves, the higher and lower, play their game perfectly. That they cooperate with each other at every moment may be hard to ‘digest.’ Why would the love-motivated Higher-Self support or approve of the ego’s strive for power, dominance, possessions, and useless sensory gratification if spiritual evolvement is one of the main purposes of our stay here on Earth? What possible good could there be in crime, hate, suppression, greed, and rage? Yet, if we are essentially spiritual beings in human form, then we must at least consider the possibility that there may be some sort of purpose in suffering, negativity, and destruction.
Seen on their own, negative personality characteristics make very little sense, if any, but when taken into the context of a larger picture, they suddenly become meaningful. Every single particle that constitutes our body, the world and this entire universe can only exist because it has an anti-particle somewhere. Although billions of light years may separate a particle and its anti-particle, they are attached to each other by a force that cannot be broken or destroyed. Regardless of the distance that may lie between them, if one particle rotates in one direction, let us assume it takes a left spin, its anti-particle spins to the right. The most astonishing thing in this mysterious event is the exact opposite movements of the two particles are precisely synchronized. That is truly astounding! How does one particle know when its opposite twin is about to rotate?
The only sensible answer to this question lies in the invisible field that is home to both particles and any other pair of duality, like light and dark, high and low, right and wrong, good and bad. This invisible field is consciousness. It unites opposites, keeps them together. This unified field of consciousness underlies all of duality. It is the central point where opposites meet and become one. The poles of a magnet, like the poles of the Earth’s magnetic field, have opposite characteristics; one is negative and the other positive, yet both of them need one another to exist. The Earth wouldn’t be here in this form if either the South Pole or the North Pole vanished. Since these polar points give rise to a huge magnetic field that polarizes everything, including our human bodies and mind, we cannot help but have to deal with the duality of life.
The poles of the Earth magnet exert no power at the exact middle point between them, yet this point in the inner Earth is the great power that keeps them both in balance. This power is silent and unifying; without it, the Earth would disintegrate like a rotten apple that could no longer hold on to its substance. And to some extent the Earth is now behaving like a rotten apple. The presence and activities of the human race on this planet have gradually thrown the Earth’s magnetic field out of balance. The polarity is uneven. The bloodshed, conflicts, wars, fear, exploitation of resources, construction of large cities, the building of railways and asphalted roads, the chemical pollution of the soil, water and air, etc. have all contributed to the derangement and degradation of the Earth’s magnetic field. We have reached a point where many species of animals are leaving the planet due to sickness, lack of living space and starvation.
Our human lives are polarized like the energy field generated by the poles of a magnet or the poles of the Earth. If our body’s magnetic field was in complete alignment with the Earth’s magnetic field, and the Earth’s magnetic field were intact according to its original design, we would enjoy perfect, unending health and youthfulness in both body and mind. At the same time, the Earth would be a paradise. We would literally enjoy heavenly life on Earth. We are heading this way but we are certainly not there yet. We are in the process of leaving behind the confusion and chaos that occurs in the period of pause before the pendulum of time takes a new direction. Although chaos and confusion are more pronounced now than ever before, love, hope and compassion have never been so deep and widespread, either. These intensified experiences in duality allow us to get into something even deeper than we have ever experienced before, that is, ‘spiritual passion,’ the passion of spirit itself, the passion of Divine Love.
This is the time of the greatest spiritual renaissance the Earth has ever witnessed. The Earth herself is realigning with her original purpose and therefore with the central power point that keeps her poles balanced. The Earth is able to go through this major transformation because we humans are increasingly shifting our awareness from duality-based to singularity-based living. We are gently, or not so gently, motivated to become aware of the central point of unity that, in the field of duality, holds life together and makes it truly meaningful and passionate. We have reached the final chapter in the long history of life on Earth where everything that has ever disturbed our alignment with our Spirit Source is forced to the surface. This is not bad, though it may seem so at first. Many of the imbalances from the past are returning now for us to honor and bless them. Only when we do that will the imbalances leave us altogether.
Before we, in the role of our Higher Self, volunteered to make Love the principle keynote of personal and universal interaction on this planet, we didn’t expect it would be so hard. Little did we know that incarnating in human form and acting out duality would also mean forgetting our Source and soul purpose. In order to create something more than there was before this great experiment, of which the Great Separation played a major role, we had to incarnate here many times. Each new life allowed us to experiment with and understand a new facet of duality. We were to infuse the highest form of love frequency into the lowest form of matter and energy that exists on this planet. This would raise the density of matter, which is so prevalent in the lower dimensions, and merge it with the higher energies of the fourth and fifth dimensions. To do this successfully we needed to completely immerse ourselves in the ignorance that is so typical for any perception in the third dimensional reality. This meant we had to experience, and feel every aspect of duality, both the positive and negative.
