David’s Oneness

Listen to this article

Look around!  Pay attention!
Find the people! See their beauty!
Discover their thoughts!
Brilliant beings are all around us!

At the Center for Spiritual Living in Manatee, FL one of our PITs, (Practitioners in Training), read to the congregation his thought paper on Oneness. With his permission, I share his brilliance.

What it Means To Be One
By David Uhrman

It means being always “On” because the time is always “Now”. It means “Never having to say you’re sorry,” because there is always consequence to action. It means being closer than the “Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon,” because “As above, so below, as within, so without.” It means “Welcome to the Fun House,” because whatever can be seen, is a mirror perception and intention.

It is a World Wide Web of sentience, a Hobbit’s journey to “There and Back Again.” A “Universe with Its center everywhere and circumference nowhere,” so “No matter where you go, there you are.” And I, having gone nowhere now realize I have been everywhere, and still …

… It is difficult, not because it must be so, but because I am so requiring of life’s surety. I hang on to the side of the pool, I purchase buyer protection plans, seat belts and air bags. I demand the services of professionals with the weight of gravitas in their voices, and I refuse roller coasters.

I expected to be “Perfect, Whole and Complete,” but too often I feel more like spaghetti sauce proclaiming, “It’s All In There.” Truly, it all is and the thoughts that succeed will be the ones that I feed. There is so much junk food for thought. What to do, what to do, what to do?

So I pray for peace in the city whose name is peace.  I become its resident and it becomes me.

And so it is.
