~**~ Dear friends. All human violence is a reflection of the belief in our separateness. If we knew we were all one and that God is within us, we'd know that any harm to another is a violation of God. We would not be able to behave as we do to each other. But the insanity of the ego has convinced us that we are separate and encouraged us to pursue our vendettas of hatred.
~**~ Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, the French theologian and paleontologist, wrote: " We are one, after all, you and I; together we suffer, together exist, and forever will recreate each other. " This is sanity – knowing you are one with God. For the ego, this is a dangerous proposition to announce because it threatens ego's importance.
~**~ One of the most insane ideas that your ego offers you is that you are morally and spiritually superior to those who are not consciously seeking their sacred selves. This idea of spiritual superiority is a separatist belief.
~**~ Each of us has our own path to traverse, and each of us will be tested in many ways. Your inner awareness of God does not make you superior to anyone – it simply brings you a deeper, richer sense of your purpose. Those who have not yet seen their inner light are still a part of you. The essence of you and them is still the one source: the celestial essence of God. It is insane to let ego convince you to attach labels of inferior or superior to the loving presence within us all. ~**~
(Taken from Your Sacred Self) Namaste ~
