Each One But All One

We each make our own way in the world, and sometimes that means we go in the opposite direction of the crowd. But our eachness, doesn't prevent any of us from enjoying our allness.

Even in a group, each of us is an individual aspect of the Divine. It is. And deny it, though we might try on occasion, investing our energy in trying to believe we are separate, does not make our pretension any more true.


We are each of us an individual and each a part of everyone

      Jeffrey, I think about it sometimes like parts of the ocean. A tidepool off of La Jolla is exactly that, a tidepool off of La Jolla, but it is still part of the ocean that exists in Manila Bay. A beautiful and serene way to think. thank you for your words today, I hope your day is fabulous.

    I love this my friend. My grandmother is a perfect example. She used to tell me all the time to always “be and original, because God only makes one of you” and what she meant was that she did not want me to go along with all the fads and trends, but develop my own sense of identity, style, and self importance rather than relying on others to make myself feel important.I have always tried to live by that.
    At the same time, I have always known that I am part of the ONE divine WHOLE that’s connected by, and through everything. Being a spiritual truth seeker, that’s the one truth I never questioned.

      Thank you Laura, for your kind words. Your grandmother sounds like a very special and very intelligent woman. Being our own selves in the infinity of the Universe is a very peaceful way to live. I am so glad that is how your life is. πŸ™‚

    Hi Michael,

    It is always a pleasure to read your posts.

    BTW I looooove the painting here,)

    yesterday I was invited in a new group in Switzerland and for the 1st 40 minutes I was wondering what I was doing there.

    The feeling of separation which is at the origin of feeling alone, not enough, not seen, not loved, etc…..
    This separations is the origin of many illnesses and traumas when pushed to the extreme and the good news is that it dissolves right away when we become aware that the TRUTH is we are all ONE , part of the perfect divine design of ONENESS.

    The feeling of separation is an illusion, indeed….

    Thanks Michael!

      Hi Patricia,

      You are so absolutely right about the idea of separation. It is an illusion that feels so real. It is as if sometimes that the pain of separation is too much to stand. I believe in some ways that is the truth, it is too much to stand because we are spending our energy trying to maintain the illusion. And doing that is a lot of work

      How much easier and better feeling, to simply be surrounded and infused by the understanding that we while we look separate, in fact we are one. Thank you for coming to comment, it is always a pleasure to read what you have written.

      The picture is beautiful, I thought it illustrated the idea perfectly πŸ™‚

      Thank you Steve. πŸ™‚ We are all one, in a fundamental way, maybe not physically, but linked together in a profound and sacred way.

      We absolutely do, Julieanne, and when we allow ourselves to access more of who we truly are, that information flows into our minds so easily. πŸ™‚

      Hi Anshul,

      Thank you for your kind words. It is so true, that we are all a part of the greater whole but we are all our own selves too. πŸ™‚

      Hello Sadie-Michaela,

      It is a lovely photo, and it just struck me a the perfect complement to that sentiment. it is so important to follow what it is understand our lives to be. Being a part of something bigger while still remaining true to ourselves is a beautiful thing.

      And thank you for your kind words about the guest post. I think honesty and transparency are vital to living a life filled with positivity and fun. πŸ™‚

    Hi Michael,

    thank you for your food for thought post and the nice pictures.

    I like your the way you say: “But our eachness, doesn’t prevent any of us from enjoying our allness.

    The illusion of separateness is what keep people in fear and anxiety. I believe that this is the time when we are waking up to the ‘allness’.

    Much appreciated!

    Love and Light

      Thank you for your kind words. You are absolutely right, Yorinda. It is an illusion that we are separate. We are taught that we are different from each other as opposed to being part of each other. Truth is we are us already, and we are both separate and one. Very cool.

      Hi Nick,

      It is such a simple concept, but one of those things that when we look at it, is very profound. That idea that we can exist in two ways at once. Like twins, maybe, each of them has an individuality, but each of them is also part of a set of people. Like all of us, we are separate from each other and that is a lot of fun and can make for some great adventures.

      And at the same time, we are all part of the bigger consciousness and we quite easily fit into both those situations. The tidepool off the coast of La Jolla in California is just as much part of the ocean as the waters around the Great Barrier Reef, and each of those still has a unique individuality that makes them very special.

      Hi Jessica,

      Thank you very much. I really love this image. The soft focus in the background with the seeker out in front. It is beautiful.

    1. Michael

      Thank you Shelley. It is kind of odd to think that we are each but all one at the same time; but it sure is a lot more comforting way to think than believing we are all completely separated from each other. πŸ™‚

    Thanks for pointing out the fact that every human is created in God’s image. It’s when we humans have lost sight of that fact that we have committed atrocities such as the Holocaust, and other ‘ethnic cleansing’ incidents across the globe. On the other hand, people like Mother Theresa honored God’s image in people, and went on to minister to millions of dying people who had been discarded by society.

    1. Michael

      We are all part of the Divine living here experiencing the physical world. For some reason, we have invented countless ways to minimize that idea and ourselves feel alone. But that feeling is just a feeling, our interpretation of how things really are. In truth, there is nowhere to go to be separate. πŸ™‚
