One simple idea underlies the writing on my website: all life is one.
Beyond our physical bodies, in a place we know well but do not often visit, all life on Earth — humans, animals, plants — shares a common consciousness. It is this consciousness that allows us to communicate with all life.
And once we communicate, we are able to understand, empathize, learn, teach, grow. That is, after all, why we have come to Earth. All life shares this temporary home, and we do so to grow spiritually.
Every last one of us.
Since you are here, let me ask you three simple questions:
- Do you feel connected to all life on Earth but don’t understand why?
- Do you love animals deeply but are afraid to reveal that for fear of being ridiculed?
- Do you believe that you are more than a physical body but are not sure whether you have a soul?
If so, you’ve come to the right place.
Together we’ll explore three concepts that will help explain why you feel the way you do:
All Life Is One
Yes you have your own body, your own mind. Your life is yours alone.
But, at a deeper level, you are connected to everyone and everything on Earth. Whether it be through an act as physical as creating a child, or one as ethereal as smiling when you think of that child, you connect.
You feel this connection not only with your body’s five senses — you hold your child when she is a baby, watch her run the field when she is a teenager, talk with her on the phone when she is an adult.
You feel this connection on levels your logical mind mind can neither understand nor explain. Think of your child with strong emotion and see how long it takes before she calls or texts.
Send love silently to someone you love and see what response you receive.
And this connection exists whether you use it or not. You are still connected to the kids from your first-grade class, whether you talk to them or not.
That is the connection between all life.
That connection, by the way, does not exist solely between members of the same species. This connection exists between every life form on Earth.
All Life Is Connected
When you touch a tree, you connect with it. When you look at a tree, you connect with it. When you think of a tree, you connect with it.
The same goes for your dog or cat or horse. You touch them on three different levels: physical, mental, spiritual.
All life on Earth shares a core, or common, consciousness that enables this connection.
And because all life is connected, all life is one.
What, you may ask, enables this deeper connection?
Though the answer is simple, it may appear unknowable. It’s not.
You simply have forgotten who you are.
You Are a Soul
Yes, you are a soul.
And at the level of the soul, you understand why you’ve come.
You’ve come to Earth to learn, explore, express yourself. You are here to create a life you love living, to give compassion and understanding to others, to see that you are a thread in the fabric woven through all life — human and others.
On this blog, you’ll find posts that will help you follow the thread that is you.
