Do I really be in a relationship to be whole?

Do we really need to be joined to another in order to be whole?

Do we need to dance with another in order to revel in the symphony of life?

Or, perhaps this dancing through life is the most exhilarating adventure of the whole of oneness, always in the knowledge that one equals the all-ness of God? So, do we embrace our oneness and choose joy in everyday occurrences, or do we continuously yearn to be in union with another – and by doing so thus bypass our own inner strength and power? Standing with another is a blessing and one that I am personally grateful for, but it does not replace my own individuality and independence or my enjoyment of life.

Standing on the shore if you have never seen the ocean before, you are enthralled by its beauty and so it is that when you choose to see how amazingly beautiful you are and understand that you are whole, perfect and complete as the one, you come to realize that minimizing Yourself is no longer a part of your path. Though it may take years of continuous learning to release the solidified ideas of who you thought you were, you will come to the understanding that you and the father are one and that this is the most important connection that you will ever need to create the life of your dreams. Seeing the power of the one and releasing the idea that in order to be whole you need an entourage is true power. I and my Father are one!!!

So…. What’s open for one? The infinitude of universal bliss? The limitless abundance of Universal power? The undeniably certitude that God heals and protects and that I am totally and completely loved and healed by the Universal blessing?

I am loved and protected in every aspect of my being and I know that it is all temporary and healing has already been done and the blessings are always pouring into my physical, spiritual and mental vessel!

I know that the idea of death implies a splendid Resurrección and that it is all included on my ticket – provided before I arrived, and so the fear of what’s next is dissolved, destroyed and uncreated because in my heart of hearts I know that it is all God and that God is Love!

How do we return to the one? Who is the one anyways? What is the essence of the one? Is it possible to love another while being totally disconnected from the one?

Am I speaking about the oneness of God here? Am I talking about forces outside of oneself? What does it mean to love The One?

Returning to the Oneness of our connection to the Divine can only be accomplished when we love ourselves. The One that I am talking about here is you, and me and loving the essence of ourselves. Even when we abhor something we did, or some action we took, being able to look into the mirror and love the reflection is step one. Moving in the direction of loving ourselves has to be the first step to loving our father as he loves us. Loving and accepting our idiosyncrasies and learning to forgive precedes every other step… How then, do we commence the process of returning to the ONE?

Perhaps the steps ahead are so individual that making a list or giving advice is not appropriate here, but when we begin with the idea that loving ourselves and being grateful for who and what we are is the beginning of a joyful and prosperous life, and that when we are not loving ourselves we can’t really love anyone else, we can see how imperative it is to look to ourselves as the Miracle that we are. Love begins with self-care. Love begins with allowance of our foibles and all the things that we hate about ourselves. How will self-love begin for you?

For me, the beginning of self love begins with the recognition that I am more than a physical body and that I am required to love and kindly care for my physical self in order to care and love another. For me, it started with doing the things that brought joy into my life and releasing all of the ideas that I needed to accumulate stuff in order to be happy. In fact, I started decluttering my house, my closets and stuff in my life that, while looking back, seemed so important – until they weren’t. Material possessions are just that material, and the accumulation of it was not making me happy. It was when I started decluttering that my life opened up and the people that needed to be in my life started to show up. For me, it was like opening a window to my soul… It wasn’t about money, trinkets or any of the stuff that society seems to have such a strong belief in accumulating, it was decluttering the house, the closets and all the ideas and beliefs that were not even mine.

I started to really look at what made me happy; reading a book, writing, walking in nature, meditating and my spiritual practice that opened the window to the most amazing and rewarding life that I am now living. Am I ultra-wealthy absolutely… It started with the recognition that money is not happiness, abundance is. Abundance, in my opinion, has nothing to do with money. Abundance has to do with joy and enjoyment of life. When I started to find happiness in my life it was as if magic started to show up and life became easier. It was a natural, easy and kind process. When I started saying “yes” to the part of me who loved to write, loved walking in nature and loved just having a conversation just for the joy that – life changed.

What will it take for you to love yourself so much that your life transforms into the life of your dreams? What will it take for you to be who you truly are? What will it take for your life to unfold magnificently? Perhaps just the recognition of your true nature, the recognition of your majestic heritage.

Whatever that may be, may this Valentine’s Day be the most glorious day of your entire life!
