Laws That Cannot Be Broken

Humanity From A Distance

Source

One Man's Opinion

"The further away from your self you get, the more you realize you are not just yourself." - B. Stuart Noll

One of the very peculiar characteristics of the human ego is its thirst for self preservation through separation. Over time then, might it be possible for a human being to believe he or she is totally disconnected from everyone else? In my humble opinion if this were true we would not be here at this very moment, but because there exists laws which cannot be broken, humanity survives and evolves.

In the very well written and expressed hub entitled "Metaphysics: The Twelve Universal Laws Explained in a Nutshell," by fellow HubPages author ChristinS, I made the following comment:

"...The power in this hub, in my humble opinion, is in the first law. "The Law of Divine Oneness." We may not all have the same beliefs, and some may even dispute the following fact; we are all connected . There is simply too much indisputable evidence. Even then, an argument to the contrary will be made.

It is as much a part of our humanity as the power of choice. (The one human characteristic displayed in every individual on the face of this planet) We are connected even though we choose to separate ourselves from each other and thus from the source of all being.

I will bookmark this hub and respond with a hub entitled "Laws That Cannot Be Broken." In our beliefs we may deceive ourselves and each other, but the laws you have so eloquently stated cannot be subverted by an ego. They simply are!

There is a question the 12 laws present relative to our place in humanity and our desire to be as one. It is like that of a partner in marriage; "Do I want to be right, or married?"

I hope in this brief hub to support my comments in such a way as to inspire my fellow humans to consider this viewpoint about our connectedness for the purpose of taking one step closer to peace.

You decide...Is this possible or probable?

Can you put aside your current beliefs...for one moment? This video contains footage of 9/11 which may be sensitive to some viewers.

Many Perspectives, One Viewpoint

Though I strongly encourage each reader of this hub to to consider the 12 Laws outlined in the hub Metaphysics: The Twelve Universal Laws Explained in a Nutshell, I want to focus only on the first, the Law of Divine Oneness.

I respect the right of each person on earth to think and feel what he or she wants, to believe what they wish to believe. How could I make it any different. Yet, even though we have the incredible gift of choice, I challenge each person to consider this point; our view of life always emanates from within. Which one of us isn't behind our skin? Which one of us sees life through another persons physical eyes? Who acts, not on their own emotions, but on the emotions of another human being? Which one of us views their world from outside of their body or mind?

Why is this important? If, for arguments sake alone, this is correct, then our viewpoint has an opposite and that opposite is looking at us from a distance, as if we were looking at our lives from space. The further away we get from earth the less distinct each individual gets until at some point we are blended into one flesh, one planet, on galaxy, one universe, to infinity.

It isn't necessary for us to agree with each other on this point. I know we won't and I am willing to admit that this is my perspective. However, that doesn't change what we have in common that has yet to be disputed in all of recorded history. We are all born; we all bleed; we all die and every individual on the face of this planet is...well...plainly standing on this planet! Please, dispute that! If these things are true, then I would suggest we have have more in common than many religions would allow us to believe. Oh, and by the way, the word religion originated from the Latin religare - meaning to bind...or reconnect!

If we are to bind or reconnect, would that suggest that we were once bound to or connected to a source outside ourselves. I don't know, but if so, were we all individually connected to the same or different sources? Again, I don't know. I love my wife, Sophia, very much and her intuitive mind suggests that "we're all gonna be surprised." Well, being surprised does take some getting used to, so I'm leaning in that direction just for the halibut! (Chuckle, Chuckle)

Seriously though, I think you get my point and as I said earlier, you don't have to agree with me because whether I'm right or not, or whether we agree or not, isn't going to change what is! What all of this conjecture proves to me is that we are indeed one entity, like it or not, governed by the Law of Divine Oneness and that there is so much more for us to learn. Up close and personal we may feel we are very different from each other, but as we continue to step back and consider all of the possibilities we may begin to look very, very much alike...from a distance I'll bet you couldn't tell us apart...kind of like - one being! I recognize this is my opinion. Oh, you have one of those too? Another similarity. How similar do we have to be before we admit we are, essentially, one and the same!

However this turns out, I wish for you peace and I look forward to reconnecting when the time comes, if we haven't done so in this present moment already! It is with great love I choose to share this part of me with you. For the offering and acceptance of unconditional love is...one of the Laws That Cannot Be Broken!

"Underneath the surface appearance, everything is not only connected with everything else, but also with the Source of all life out of which it came. Even a stone, and more easily a flower or a bird, could show you the way back to God, to the Source, to yourself." From: Eckhart Tolle's Oneness With All Life.

Needless to say, I agree and I loved reading this hub. Voted up, beautiful, awesome and (missing that button) inspiring.

Thank you Nonna!

I have read the Power of Now and A New Earth by Tolle, along with The Stillness Speaks, all really well done. As a species, I think we're getting closer to the collective consciousness he talks about. Thanks for advancing the cause! I'll be by to read your latest very soon.

Thanks,

Bruce

I hopped across your hub this morning :) Thank you for writing this and I agree that ego issues tend to cause us to separate ourselves as a means of self-preservation. I think one downfall to religion kind of ties into that. It seems so many take comfort in that ego driven desire to have theirs be the "right" belief and that has caused so much unnecessary conflict throughout history. In my perspective, multiple realities are a possibility, quantum physics even explores this. I of course disagree with people sometimes, but I still respect their right to be who they are (as long as they are not harming others) I hope that humanity can truly grow back into a place of recognizing that oneness we all share. It would certainly lead to more problem solving and less fighting and we certainly have some areas we could stand to improve upon.

Great Hub! voted up, shared, etc. :) Thanks!

Namaste

Born2care2001,

It might interest you and ChristinS to know that the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the founder of Transcendental Meditation (TM,) believes that if he can accumulate millions of meditators worldwide, the process of organized meditation will cause an effect called Transcendental Consciousness (a state of inner peace) which would create world peace through collective consciousness. The organization of the implementation of his plan is far more complex than stated here, but it is a worthwhile effort on his part.

An interesting side fact about the Maharishi is that he has a university degree in Physics.

Great hub and voted up.

Hey DFiduccia!

Wow! I'm for that! This is kind of a paradoxical statement I know, but I think it would be quite comedic if we could all pull it off, just to piss off all those who said it could never be done. I recognize that may not be a peaceful thought but I would so like to see that happen in my lifetime; pipe dream of not! I'll check it out!

I have often mentioned Maharaji Prem Rawat whose peace initiative is similar. He's been doing it since he was 9!... 9 years old!

Oh, and thanks for reading my hub too!

I would think that with the connection we all have that group meditation would conceivably have some effect, not exactly sure what that would be, but if nothing else the people meditating would feel and benefit from the experience. Transcendental Consciousness would be a lofty, but worthwhile goal. very interesting and I will definitely look into it further.

Oh my goodness, the Symphony of Science video is AWESOME! I'm going to "favorite" it on YouTube so I can listen to it again. Thanks for including it here. Very appropriate for this hub.

I believe the Internet is a manifestation of the beginning of our conscious realization that we are indeed One Source expressing Itself infinitely and eternally. It's happening, it's inevitable, the next step in the evolution of planetary consciousness.

Great hub! Voted up and awesome!

Hi Patrice!

Thanks for the comment! I really enjoyed the video too! I listened to it over and over and over again.

"One source expressing itself infinitely and eternally. It's happening, it's inevitable, the next step in the evolution of planetary consciousness." That has such a fantastic ring to it!!! Thank you!!!

We are so one species! I can feel the shift taking place in the hearts of people.

Thanks again for the read and the comment!

Howdy B2C - Just a thought - the "connectors" of humanity include good articles like this one. To some of us, looking into a mirror can be a startling experience. to others, it is rather ordinary and not of much consequence. It must be that one person's laws are the next person's unawarenesses. Thanks for this interesting article. Reading it brought lots of enjoyment and a measure of corroboration, too.

So true Gus, So true.

Thanks for the read and comments. Looking into the mirror is of no consequence unless one really wants to see the reflection, or as you say, "is aware" there actually is one!

Thanks my friend!
