There is an old Native American saying which goes something like this..."You cannot judge another until you have walked a mile in their moccasins." Being ONE with all of our brothers, we are literally walking in each other's moccasins all the time. We are just not aware of it. However, if we are honest, we could also say we "choose" not to be aware of it. How would we live our lives differently if we knew without a shadow of a doubt that every one of our words, thoughts and deeds were in synchronization with everyone else's? I believe we would live the Golden Rule to the maximum knowing that whatever i did to a brother i did to myself. To judge a brother would be to judge myself. It would be a foolish thing to do...not because it is deemed unholy but because it makes no sense to hurt ourselves.
In our slumber, we imagine ourselves fragmented, separate from one another with an individual "i" personality, isolated and alone. We have forgotten our Truth. Yet the Truth of us has not changed because of our dreaming. It continues on and functions as ONE as it always has and is doing right at this instant. I Love Mother Teresa's words..."We belong to each other." What a beautiful expression of our Truth.
The only way for us to remember who we are is to bring all of our "seemingly" fragmented relationships back to their Singular Truth and this is accomplished by giving ALL relationships to God and by healing our mind of erroneous perceptions through forgiveness. Jesus gives us many clues and tips on the ways for this to be accomplished.
We practice by putting aside the personal "i" and embracing the eternal "I" which is whole, inclusive, complete and ONE with all of our brothers and God. We practice by turning over ALL relationships to God, for every relationship is a part of who I am. We practice by recognizing that there is but ONE solution to any and all perceived problems and that is returning the mind to God. We practice by asking for guidance from Holy Spirit and/or Jesus in every situation. We practice by making every encounter with a brother a holy encounter that recognizes our brothers as our Saviors. We practice by utilizing forgiveness in every situation where we are not experiencing perfect peace. Probably the most challenging practice of all is by putting God and our brothers ahead of any personal need and aspiration. Even as i type these words i can feel my ego's objections. LOL
I can assure you that at some point you will notice that "practice" transforms into a "devotion" and a labor of Love in which everyone benefits, but as a singular entity within God and each other. "We belong to each other." That is the way we were created and that is what we will awaken to...a sense of belonging where all Truthful wishes are fulfilled in the extension of the Love that we are. Creation has not skipped a beat in our slumber but can you imagine the experience of being a fully conscious part of it all? How amazing we are together as ONE shared Creation of God.
"Live in the Light of God's Love" was one of the very first messages I received from Holy Spirit decades ago and now i'm so grateful it is an experience integrated into everyday life...my true Life with my brothers in God. Everything is a collaboration, a collaboration of LOVE. There are no private thoughts, there are no single thoughts. Everything is shared, EVERYTHING. Our singular Relationship with God and our Brothers is key to awakening to this Truth. It allows us to KNOW that we are NEVER alone and there is not an instant we should be fearful about anything. How would we live if we KNEW this was the Truth? Well, it is. We all walk in each other's moccasins and every loving thought is TRUE.
