Be One. Global change is manifested every few months in different ways. Not too many years ago, we experienced a financial crisis that is still affecting the economy in large areas of the world. The last few years have also seen numerous natural disasters: floods in Australia, the Philippines, Thailand, South Africa, Pakistan; earthquakes in Haiti, New Zealand, Japan, and Chile; volcanic explosion in the islands of Japan … just to name a few. Social revolutions are taking place in Europe, North Africa, the Middle East, India … people all over the world are demonstrating against corruption and injustice.
The Importance of the Individual
To soothe the startling effects of these major changes in nature, ecological and sustainability movements have started to be more and more active. To awaken individual responsibility, they use the saying: “Think global – act local!” By that they wish to enforce the understanding that global changes cannot take place unless individuals become responsible. It is a calling for the individual to bring attention to his/her use of energy resources in everyday life, to be more aware of the way we consume, recycle, etc. We have to be one with our environment.
This saying is highly recommended for improvement in all areas of life.
As the population grows, we fall asleep under the illusion of majority. We easily disappear in the crowd, give the energy and responsibility of our life to others (from our parents to insurance companies) and go with the wave wherever it takes us. For most people, taking a different path can be very challenging. You might risk your social relationships, your sources of income, your health, your self-image. Looking around is sadly facing the fact that most of the population is already losing all of the above, although they are deeply involved in the mainstream. How many people are dealing with severe diseases, feeling lonely, depressed and disconnected from themselves? By not becoming more and more responsible of your own life, you are risking losing your uniqueness, your happiness, your truth, your connection to all and your sense of vitality.
The individual is essential. We were born to a world of varieties; each one has his/her own totally unique vibration, special fingerprint. This variety is necessary for the whole to become whole, as all colors are necessary to the white vibration. The white vibration is the color of connection, of oneness and purity, and it needs all other colors. Once one color, one vibration, is missing or appears stronger or more intense, white would not be white any more. Individuality does not mean separation – it means oneness.
Fighting nature, politics, economical systems and whatever else would exhaust all your energy, and in most cases will lead to repeating the same pattern with different appearances.
Don’t fight. You are fighting yourself. There is no one out there.
Sing instead. Sing your song, sing your unique vibration, allow yourself to shine your light, to be who you truly are. Be authentic, connect to your truth and live it fully. If you are longing for harmony with nature and with all there is, you cannot fake it! If you fake it, there would be no harmony. Do you get that?
There is no corruption outside. If you are saying other people’s truth or the truth you did not experience, if you are not living your own truth, unfortunately, you are the corruption. There are no thieves outside. If you don’t know your truth and you buy someone else’s truth you are the thief.
Live without adhering to your light and truth, and you will know it in a second; you will not be happy.
Some Steps on the Way
Dedicate time, energy – even your life – to know who you are, and let it be.
Define your positive attributes and live by them. Be clear about your priorities, about how you wish YOUR life to be, and then live your life according to that. Make it your song.
Think, say, do and be ONE.
No one is holding you back; there is no one out there. It might take some time till you see the fruits of inner harmony manifested in your life. Start with small steps every day and there will come a moment you realize that you are living your song.
When you believe that someone else is limiting you, it means that you have not yet started to make the first step, or that you have just now started making the first one. Be patient and attentive. It might be that you are looking at the last destination. There are endless opportunities for manifestation. Take it one step at a time and every phase you achieve will take you to the next higher level.
Accept other people’s songs, if you are truly longing for harmony. Sing along. Don’t try to change anyone, not even the system, as you would not like anyone to change you. Go, learn, explore, experience, get a current, proper education and be in tune with the here and now. It will support you taking it one step at a time.
Do not waste time and energy looking at other people’s plates (nor at the system’s restaurant…). Any energy you waste on it is energy you could benefit from yourself. Whatever you see outside – it’s the Cosmos pointing out for you the places you are faking. Go back home and practice your song.
Most importantly – do everything you do with respect, love and compassion, ask the highest good of All to guide you. As everything you see around you is only you.
