A Guide to Happiness: Oneness
Do you ever feel as though you don't belong? Do you feel different than others you look at on the street in a bad way? Do you feel as though you aren't important? I want you to realise that you belong here just as much as the next person. You belong at every get-together, function or party. You are not lower than anyone else on this entire planet. We are all equal and we are all one. No one is any better than anyone else and I don't care who you are, what you do or what you have. To the person who believes he is better than the rest because he has a car that is worth alot of money......think again buddy.....you are no better than the guy that drives the beater truck with the rust showing on the wheel wells. To the girl who wears the designer shoes, fancy label suits and carries that designer hand bag.....she is no better than the girl who gets her clothes at Good Will. You see......alot of people identify their importance and level of stature against their purchases, accomplishments or appearance. The more expensive their purchases....the more important they are....or they think they are. You can feel their ego/lower self when you are in the presence of these types of individuals. I know I can feel it. Some of these types of ego/lowerself people look at you in a different way and they can make sly little comments and if you are aware enough you can pick up on this. The people that base their worthiness/importance level by their accomplishments are very much the same. They feel as though they are better than the rest because they have letters behind their name or their salary is huge. These people are no better or happier than anyone else. They are equal to the girl who works at Tim Horton's.....they are equal to the convenience store clerk.....they are equal to the mailman and the call centre representatives......they are equal to even the homeless, poor and underpriviledged. So .....we as humans all came from the same place and when you break us down we are pure energy.....everything is pure energy. We are born into this wonderful world and are an intricate part of the amazing scheme of nature.....we have the most amazing capabilities ever....but some have lost their way as the lower self is very dominating and wants everyone to feel separate than the rest....different and special from the rest.....this will cause many people alot of grief through judgements and comparisons......envy and desire.....and doing only for oneself in order to have personal gain.... and to hell with the rest of you's.
One thing that I believe that people must lose if they carry this trait is too lose the judgement. When you judge someone you are really judging yourself and when you do that the comparisons come into play. All of the achievements, accomplishments, possessions and even personal looks are lined up and compared against the other. Losing any judgement against others is a great step in achieving happiness. When you view others as the same or equal to yourself the barriers start to fall apart and break away. Look at everyone you see and see them as the same as you. The only difference is our costumes and our thoughts and when you come across someone who is very lowerself based or ego based, have empathy for them. You may not like their words, actions or personality but try to find that piece of them that is a bright star. We all have the bright star inside of us waiting to come out. See passed the critical comments or caddy remarks and see the true soul that is hidden deep in each ego based individual. That peaceful soul is blocked in many people who are chasing the wrong things in life....trying to find that happy place outside of themselves.....it's not outside....its inside of themselves where the happiness lies along with all the answers to every question. They know not what they do as they have been conditioned. Some people have let loose the fear, conditioning and limitations and are able to see the light and beauty of the world they live in and the life they have.
When you pass others.....wish them well from your heart. Put unconditional love forth to everyone you see....give it freely in a simple thought of love. Find at least one good thing in every person you encounter and be honest with this one thing. Don't think it if you don't believe it. If you encounter someone who you can't bear to be around, just turn and walk away and have empathy for them for they know not what they do. They are not awake to their purpose on Earth. See everyone as one and good things will come forth unto yourself and be thankful for everything you have. Say a thank you in your mind for everything and give thanks to the great number of people who worked to give you what you are thankful for. Alot of hardworking hands built your fridge, car, home, glassware, dishware, rugs, flooring. Many hands worked hard to make all the food that is in your fridge or cupboards...give thanks to all of them and it will come back to you in abundance. Love life, love yourself, love others.....We are one!
