Remembrance, Unity

You are whomever you choose to be. Whatever aspect you wish to be, that's who you are. That can change at any given moment. Yet if you want your life to settle down, to stop bringing you such a wide variety of experiences, there's a way to do that. Simply stop changing your mind so often about who you are, and who you choose to be. Power without inner strength is an illusion. Inner strength without Unity is a lie. A lie that has not served the race, but that has deeply embedded itself into your race. For you think that inner strength comes from individuality and from separateness, and that is not so. Separation from each other is the cause of all your dysfunction and suffering. Still, separation continues to masquerade as strength, and your politics, your economics, and even your religions have perpetuated the lie.

Don't stop the symphony which you are playing because you think you hear a sour note. Simply change your tune.

Love is the greatest power in the world, but it requires continual circulation to stay strong and vital. It was designed to be expressed. If we open ourselves to love, we see that it most certainly has to be the strongest attracting power in creation. It binds us all together in one great and beautiful union. We are all part of one. This love pulls each of us toward our selves, making us more and more aware. In the long run, love is stronger than hatred and wars, the personal battles as well as international ones.

Love is everywhere. But sometimes we attach strings to our love. We love only at certain times and we love only certain people. Maybe we feel we can love only the people who we feel love us or who are the same as we are. But this is not using our wonderful power of love in the correct way. The fact is that everyone is like us because we are all part of each other. You are the same as every other person, no matter how it may seem.

Our attention has to stay focused on the nature of each person and not on outer appearances. We're not all cut from the same cookie cutter, so there will always be superficial differences. But we are all from the same batch of dough. When we let the warmth of our love flow out from us in a complete circle, we touch everyone within it, and the entire world, especially our own immediate world becomes a better place. We meet all people, and we automatically fall across their paths.

To love in a way is to let it flow freely, not withholding it from anyone. This is the ideal and, as with most of these universal principles, we may not be there yet. But when we realize that everyone wants to love and be loved and that everything people do is their way of crying out for that love, we begin to feel our own moving in their direction.

Whatever we do, we attract into our lives, we will attract blessings. Eventually each of us will realize that he or she is part of everyone else, and our love will touch everyone, because we are all one.
