By understanding the nature and effects of living in duality, we increase our awareness of the urgency for individuals to wake up — by understanding the workings our own mind and intending, each day, to bring more Love into each of our own inner and outer worlds. It's easy to shrug my shoulders and say, how could my little effort make any difference in this chaotic world; I'm just one person.
That we are all One is a difficult reality to truly grasp because we believe in what our senses perceive. To our senses, our bodies appear to be separate so we believe we are separate from each other. Our minds, our language reflect this world of duality, of separation—which breeds isolation and disconnect.
- Can I trust myself to 'do my best' without the constant scrutiny of the inner judge and negative inner critic? Do I believe that without these judgmental, non-accepting parts that I'll end up a slacker?
- Am I able to think about this in a new way? Can I accept that there is nothing that I must change? Can I accept that this moment is acceptable Enough, as it is right now?
- That if I simply set my intention in 'Noticing'... my thoughts as they go by, my feelings as they arise in me... without any need to fight them, change them or get 'rid' of them, simply to Notice – this thought is here... hmmm... interesting. And, I can always choose to Send LOVE in any moment.
