I AM ONE WITH ALL

Jul 23 2015Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord … I and the Father are one … Who hath seen me hath seen the Father.  Deuteronomy 6:4; John 10:30

Perhaps the most difficult thing for us to realize is that one Life runs through everything, one Presence manifests in everything, and one Person individualizes through everyone.  But unity does not mean uniformity.  We do not all have to be alike, think alike, or act alike, but the world is learning that we must all act in union.  The Infinite One manifests in infinite variations, each rooted in the One but each divinely unique in its own right.  Good, bad; high, low; across, above and beneath, are all one to the infinite Mind.

Today I find my union with Life. Today my imagination reaches back through all differences to the universal sameness.  Today I know that I am in Him, He is in me, we are One.  Today, I sense this Divine union of the soul with its Source and of all people with the Infinite.

I know that I am not isolated from the All-Good, but as one with it.  Therefore, I am not afraid, even when the billows roll and the wind sweeps by, for there is a divine hand guiding my ship; there is an invisible Presence at the wheel.  I lift the sails of faith and let the winds of love fill them with the mighty power of the Divine Presence.  My boat rides upon a sea of pure Spirit and finds safe anchorage in a haven of delight.  I am one with God.
