Napoleon Hill recalls the Wisdom of Andrew Carnegie

This man, Like Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., JFK, Reagan ("Tear down this wall!") inspires about the Power of the Mind like bending spoons did for me directly last weekend! Like the changes going on with Oneness Blessing Givers and Receivers. Like "old" Vipassana Meditation students...
Kahu Kahealani Kawaiolamanaloa Satchitananda: profound fact and when a great crisis comes over the world there always comes out some unknown with a formula for dissolving that crisis, abe lincoln, george washington, frank roosevelt, sometimes wonder hands destiny reach out get humble give great job to do in life from inspiration....God given power of Thought!!! MALAMA MANA'O, MALAMA MANA....CREATIVE POWER OF THE UNIVERSE. Brooke Fleet: Thank you for this, it seems that God knows how to make lemonade out of lemons, and "he uses all things for good". Aloha Nui Loa~

Regardless of the name a person uses for the Infinite Force that holds us together, it is the source of our miraculous, unpredictable creativity and our dignity.

Emotional Chill Out Music Touch - Buddha - Golden Lotus

Ah, the Middle Path - what equanimity! UPS just brought in Along the Path - The Meditator's Companion to the Buddha's Land (Goldberg & DeCary). I may be traveling that Path within a few months?
The Wheel represents the Buddhist Path: Derek Stone: I visualise spirituality as a bicycle wheel; GOD is the circular rim with no start and no end; infinite. Mankind is the Hub in the centre of the wheel and each re-incarnation including experience and religion is a spoke connecting the Hub to the Rim (GOD). The spokes of the wheel represent also our separation from GOD, however we are still GODS trying to get back to being ONE with GOD.

Miten & Deva Premal - So Much Magnificence

there is so much magnificence in the ocean, waves are coming in, waves are coming in...mesmerizing - could not keep my eyes & ears off of it. I have copied that song from elsewhere for background music during Oneness Blessings. in joyous Oneship, ron
Unity Walker and Yewguan Tan commented on Unity Walker's status:
Why did God (the Cosmos) create us? We all have asked ourselves this question. The Bible says we were created for "His good pleasure. " Carl Sagan put it his way: "The Cosmos is also within us. We're made of Star Stuff. We are a way for the Cosmos to know Itself." ~ "Yeah!" said Unity, "God, the Infinite Invisible, experiencing Itself in, through, and as us and all Creation on every conceivable level--and beyond."
Santosh Bhalke: This seems to be same as indian thinking: we have belief, he became many to play.
Antonii Ao D'Jesus: ‎...existence is an opportunity ~ evolution is expansion. experiencing is a journey that has no end. it is a ripple in space. all that we ever perceive is with in us, for this life is simply all about us...the self. ♥♥♥
Unity Walker: I would agree with INdian thinking, then, Santosh! What a lovely way of putting it!
Santosh Bhalke: ‎@Unity; thanks for appreciating. but saints in India say that all this universe is a Fun creation of him only; we call him Jesus, or Krishna or Allah.....all one and the same......

The Power Of One

Anne Westenbrink: You can relax now , nothing really matters since all here on this Earth plane is Maya/ illusion and We are all One in Spirit till Eternity ! Breath deeply now , I am with you , You are Eternity and that will never change .... You are a ch...ild of God ...see the Youtube on this magnificent human story ...Love & Light & Peace in Our Hearts ...
Ron Alexander: I agree Anne, however while we are here we need to honor and keep good care of our "temple of the Holy Spirit", as we cannot be here completely without having Spirit embodied(Its everywhere else). And the closest we can come to realizing eternity here is to be completely here NOW! Also, we need to experience separatness so we can realize and appreciate Oneness. Joy in Oneness. ron
Anne Westenbrink: have you seen the youtube video on this dear Ron, its so comforting to all who are afraid to let go and flow with the river of change now, thats why I post it here & there , I am , Love & Peace starts with "Let God & Let go " for me and Accepting & Loving all that comes our way, In Lakech , Red Lunar Moon
Ron Alexander: Dear Anne, thanks for your prompt reply, and I believe what you say is the big "R" Reality, however I am very happy to be in my body at this moment in time, and I know that GOD is here too! Also, I believe in what St. Francis says at the e...nd of his great Prayer - "it is letting go of self that you are born to eternal life." At this point in my life, I choose to observe "the river of life" and when I am ready to go on, I may just jump in?
Please, dear One, give me more info. on the youtube video, and I may just be ready - "It may be a good day to die?"

Anne Westenbrink: never think of dying dear Ron, it will come upon its own sweet time , ever be ready though ... yust a minute , will try to find this video ..since i posted it a while ago , and still don`t know how to refind it so quickly Ron .... love & light always !
Ron Alexander: No no no, Dear Sweet Anne, I was thinking of the Native American Warrior saying as they went off to battle: "This is a good day to die."
I think it is always good to keep impermanence in our minds, as it helps us to be a better person in the... present! yours in Living Oneness, ron
Joanne Syron: i always love each day like its my last on earth, because then i savour each moment in its totality xxx thats called being alive, when you can step on the precipice of your own death...



Julia Hinkle; Words said with even the best intentions can sometimes do harm to a soul. We never know what a person has gone through or is going through. Select your words carefully in love before you say them.

Elaine Mouton Flanagan: Seems we should all just "shut up" more often and allow spirit to flow thought us. Think we are all so afraid of the Silence!
Julia Hinkle: I have to agree. We are all afraid of silence.

Awakening into Oneness by Arjuna Ardagh - (selection)

God is the air that I breathe, everytime I breathe. God is when I brush my teeth. God is where I play music. God is when I see a beautiful sunset. God is when I argue with someone. God is when we meet. God is when I am feeling pain. This amazing formless, limitless God! There are endless forms of God. You choose whatever you want. You can choose whatever form, whatever experience, whatever ways, to be connected with that amazing creative power. And that's God. God is in everything. I relate with Amma and Bhagavan as forms of God, because I really like them. But you can relate to God as a flame of fire, as a voice within you, as a wind, as Buddha, as Jesus, as Allah, whatever you want. God is not an absolute thing. It's a subjective experience. We have to understand that. God is not an absolute thing. It's not a man or a woman. It's everything. It's everything. So what is God to you? That's the question. We are creators, too. We are creating our lives all the time. We are creating everything. That's why we are in the image of God, because we are also creators. Nahuel Schajris, the Grammy Award-winning musician from Argentina.
It is in the same way, as a creator, that you can let the story of the Oneness Blessing settle now in your heart. In these pages, you have heard some wild and wonderful stories from people all over the world, whose lives have changed in all kinds of ways. If these were only stories of an occasional miraculous healing here or there or of a few people having mystical visions, this phenomenon would have been easier to pigeonhole. It is the sheer magnitude and variety of these stories, and the very short time in which they have all taken place, that makes the Oneness Blessing an enigma. This mysterious Blessing is not an absolute thing; it can be everything. So what will the Oneness Blessing become for you?
That is the question.

The Myth of our ego as our personal satan

Much more to come later: I studied psychology in grad. school. The defiinition of the ego is simply our individualized self. Freud, who made up this stuff, defined it as a division of the psyche that is the organized CONSCIOUS mediator between the person and reality. In other words, the part of us that can drive a car or run a company or a family. Now it gets to be unconscious when we are egocentric or egotist who are overly concerned with self - they are the pathological parts of the ego.
Another division of the psyche is the Id - now that is the "rattlesnake" from the lower "snake" brain the instinctual self that is that is full of fear & is all about survival so is heavily involved in competition and even murderous rage.
There is a paradox that we need a strong ego to be successful enough in the world so then we can let go of the ego. " Don't throw the baby out with the bathwater", by letting the ego go before you are ready!
You may even want to use your ego to plan a party for your funeral before you let the body and ego go.

Yew: i have no problems with your ego especially since i have no problems with mine * haha...Ron Alexander: Capt. Ego was vital in my outer adventures, while Capt. One is more helpful with the inner ones. .Jerry Simonek But you see, Ron, the One is all inclusive ~ which makes the One also the ego when the One manifest in its infinite aspects. So to total be "Me and my Father/God are One," brings us back around to “me and everything are One in the same;” in...cluding the inside ~ the outside ~ and even the ego (or what we call the ego).

I know somewhere along the way we have to get over the particular aspects of the Infinite Self that we get caught up in; but once we transcend them, the energy that those aspects actually were is still there and still manifesting in all of its various aspects. Which makes it kind of like a song that Donovan sang, "First there is a mountain then there is no mountain then there is. Oh, first there is a mountain then there is no mountain then there is." And the dance with all of its infinite possibilities continues.

Ron Alexander To be whole, we have to include the ego.
Rigel Gioia Jerry you know as i do that you cannot control by control but only by allow yourself to witness it :)
2 hours ago · LikeUnlike.Jerry Simonek Yes, Rigel. And through observation/witnessing comes realizations ~ from realizations comes awakening ~ from awakening comes directions. Then if we become mindful of this process and practice it consistently we begin to master the process a...nd people begin to call us enlightened.

"Ron, I completely acknowledge your advanced studies in psychology, which exceed mine (no sarcasm here at all). I gather that you see the ego as part of the complete human package; we came equipped with it, therefore it performs necessary functions. And I in no way begin to question the infinte wisdom of the Divine design. Everything is as it should be, especially when it concerns our ultimate purpose. It is an intended creation, from my viewpoint. I do however firmly believe that the grand design affords us many opportunities for personal growth and important spiritual life lessons. Maybe that is where we diverge concerning the ego. From my example of blackberry picking with my sons, I can find nothing positive in the prodding of my ego, to compete and "win" over my own children. I see my own ego as a serious impediment to my connection with the one true source. It has been my ego, for years, which has told me that to surrender to the Divine, is to lose my identity, my individuality. It has been my ego which has resisted returning/assimilating to and with the One who made me. The ego says, "Evan is too special to be lost in a collective," even if that collective is pure love. This is, of course, just my own personal experience, and it may be total hogwash, and completely different for everyone else. Nothing which I have said is textbook, and I did not arrive at any of it overnight. I sincerely thank you for you insights."

Within the Circle of the Perfect One

Within the Circle of the Perfect One
The moon is most happy
When it is full.
And the sun always looks
like a perfectly minted gold coin
...that was just polished
And placed in flight
by God's playful kiss.
And so many varieties of fruit
hang plump & round
From branches that seem like a sculptor's hands.
I see the beautiful curve of a pregnant belly
shaped by the soul within,
And the earth itself,
and the planets and the spheres-
I have gotten the hint:
that there is something about circles
The Beloved likes.
Hafiz (ron, you)
Within the Circle of a Perfect One
There is an Infinite Community
of Light. Hafiz

Prayer of Forgiveness with Innocent Loving Oneness

Premise: Everyone is innocent loving the best they can, and every perceived attack is a call for loving help. And we are All One. Plus "We are all created to love and be loved." Mother Teresa
Ho'Oponopono Prayer - "I am sorry,please forgive me...thank you. I love you."
I was told a relative who has seemingly "intractable" anger towards me did not have long to live yesterday afternoon. Also,previously, I have been told not to contact her, except on special occasions.
I went to bed with a heavy heart, and unable to sleep, I put my right hand on my heart repeating "God's love is right here, right now." I interspersed the Ho.. Prayer in between occasionally also "God, forgive us for we know not what we do."
This morning in my meditation prayer, I combined all of these in a prayer:
I am sorry, I did not know, please forgive me, my perceived attack was a call for loving help. Thank you, I am innocent, you are innocent, we are One. I love you. "This too shall pass." Thank You dear One Love for making this so...

Laurie Maranelli: If things are not "patched up" before she leaves this earth, they will be perfected between you when she crosses over. There is no darkness in the light. It is all good Ron.And the prayer you wrote is beautiful. Thank you.
Patricia Gianniou: Tears in my eyes because I feel your pain, my friend. Laurie is so right ... once they pass over they see the truth and let go of all ill feelings and their only hope it that we forgive them ... which you always do ... I join with all of you, loving Oneness Man!
Noy Traba G -I had a falling out with my sister. I know in my heart that I did everything to be with my her (she had a lot of problems and negative molecules within here). And I know that Ididnt' wrong her - God knows, she did. I was so furious to the extent I disowned her (she was referrred to as the ex-sister). One of my friends thought that her problems were up to the sky and when she burst, I was in the front line and was in the receiving end of all her bullets. It was really sad. With the H'oponopono principle, I was able to forgive and forget - and I felt so much better now. I had to let go and tried darn hard to just be the more understanding party. My path had been, so far, much better. I'm free of few lingering illnesses (health and mind - related). I freed myself by taking the initial step. It's a long story which spanned years; cutting it short, I was just so glad that I finally chose to be happier by clearing my mind and doing it the smoother way. Forgive and forget.
Ron, I wish for you the same. Being liberated of bad feelings is a real joy. Blessings, Peace and Light to you both. Joy from noy!

I'm sorry to hear about your relative and hope they find peace in this life and take it with them. True they will find it either way. You obviously are on track and are perfectly capable of handling the feelings that arise in you. And if you falter you know you have loving kindness all around you to lift you up. You are loved. God/Goddess bless! Karen
Dearest Ron,
Some are unable to "recieve" love and it can be a real problem as they miss out of opportunities to forgive and forget. Thank goodness for your training, that you may send her loving energy from afar. Know that you are pure love and you have done your best.!
Love and Light
, Donna
"Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it." ~Mark Twain
Diane Tyrrell replied to Ron Alexander's discussion 'Ho'Oponopono is a perfect Oneness Prayer' in the group The Oneness Movement:
This is very powerful I was told about it by a man whose life has changed due to saying these words daily, he had cancer and refused to be beaten, changed his lifestyle diet and always says t...his and today he is walking proof of the power of thought…
"I am sorry, please forgive me...thank you. I love you!"

Ron Alexander: This Oneness Movement Group is on Playing with the Check it out, and join up! Or not... Say this Prayer for Yourself...
"I am sorry, please forgive me...thank you, I love you!" And since we are all One it will help us All.

Yewguan Tan: its a beautiful superbly beautiful prayer-it resonates with a vibrational frequency-and energy in oh so many-
it is an evolutionary payer along the Path-
there will be other transcendental prayers-as one journeys along
the high seas of consciousness-
love to you

Ron Alexander Thanx, Yew de Mon!
Garna Sorensen: not only did i say it to my self..i said iot out loud hoping the rest of my family and friend's would catch on here..thanks...
Ron Alexander: Garna, they will catch on - just keep praying "I am sorry, please forgive me...thank you. I love you! and believe! Amazing Results!

Love is the most amazing energy in the Universe.
It dissipates and transmutes the heaviest of energie...s and the most intense blocks.

The only way to create change is from Love.
Love opens closed hearts.
Love awakens minds to oneness.

In situations of great harm ~ sometimes we are taken from acting from Love because we feel pain and anger about what has happened.
These negative emotions create a block to us giving of Love and changing the situation from Love.

It is OK to feel but if we allow these feelings to block us seeing the path of Light in all situations or allow these feelings to hold us in negative thoughts ~ we are blocked to using our most amazing gift ~ the giving of Love.

Trust in Light and
Trust in Love always ♥

Derek Stone commented on your link:
"Beautiful words and so true"
The Body is The Temple of God when you realise this and understand who is inside, what immense power you have. YE ARE GODS.
Ron Alexander: Good on ya, Derek - some metaphysics teach that the body is an enemy. As within, without. The Dalai Lama wrote a great book: THE UNIVERSE WITHIN EVERY ATOM. When I used to hear about emptiness, nothingness, or space (Tolle), I kinda shunned the idea, however now, I know this "emptiness" is brimming with radiant bliss peace Love energy - Power! God is not only within, Love is Everywhere!Derek Stone: Thanks Ron for sharing this I agree fully God is not only inside us but as you say in everything else. I learned quite a lot about my own spiritualism through Edgar Cayce (the most famous American Psychic) and Dr Steven Hairfield www.hairfield,com . I believe that Parts of the Bible have been changed and many Books left out too suit the greed of Power over the ages, however the message is still clear LOVE GOD, LOVE EACH OTHER, WE ARE ALL ONE

I love you, I bless you, I thank you, One Ocean, One Love

Went out on the Isle of Light for sunset, singing songs and oneness blessings to the ocean and heard - "that whale that jumped on that sailboat was trying to help us to WAKE UP!" Chanting One Love, One Song, One Ocean, Oma Ka Om, I love you, I bless you, thank you! Oma Ka Ome over and over to the rhythm of the wind ...and the waves! I love you, I bless you, thank you! One Love, One Song, One Ocean! Oma Ka Om!

Ron Alexander: One chant that is delightfully running like a broken record in my head is "I love you, I bless you, I thank you...I love you, I bless you, I thank you...I love you, I bless you, I thank you And I mean the ocean and I mean you! I love you, I bless you, I thank you!Ron Alexander: Afterwards we shared a meditation and Oneness Blessings in the pure nice breeze!
Yewguan Tan: i love you i bless you i thank you..its a breeze..i mean you are a breath of fresh sea air lol :)Noy Traba-g: I love you ... I'm sorry ... Please forgive me ... Thank you ... God bless you. Oh, and I love that 'H'oponopono' song. Flowing gently like sweet afton. Enjoy the ocean calm. Peace!
Noy, Yes, we did sing the "I love you, I am sorry, please forgive me, thank you" also however the major refrain was like Tan wrote: I love you, I bless you, thank you and like a kirtan (an Indian Ecstatic chant) it remains with me to this morning hour plus...I love you, I bless you, thank you! in ecstasy, ron

Yewguan Tan: God insisted i rest six days and work one when i attempted either haha
Ron Alexander:
this is my day off
& in between siestas
I get alot done.
Yewguan Tan: given a choice God would rather me sing than work haha
Noy Traba-g: Mighty goosebumps, Ron. Reminds me sadly of a baby whale's plight two years ago (it got lost and was in agony for a week, got tangled in one of our shores (O. It was eventually euthanized after enduring the long agony (it was also badly injured) and starvation. It made me feel so sad I had to join another whale watching trip just to let go of my emotions - it was good, I felt healed. I'm glad I found people like you devoting such time selflessly on noble tasks like this. Blessings, Ron. Peace and Light!
Noy Traba-g Ron, one reason why I love Rabindranath (a highschool fave). Hey, YT - I might sway with yours but ... on the contrary > which should we opt: love or respect? Hmmmm ... mind in session. Awwwww ... leave it to the main man > RAW (RA's wisdomry). Nice flow of thoughts, by the way - train in conference. G'day to you both. Peace and Joy (from noy).
Yewguan Tan: since i sing and work atrociously haha except on fb where i make malady cf melody haha-
Noy Traba-g YT, however delivered, that could be a scented sound to someone's 'eyes' (ensalada!)
Ron Alexander: Rabindrath Tagore - who could ask for more? "Love is all we came here for.." Elton John - "Do you know what i mean have your eyes really seen

Unity Consciousness

Best video I have seen on Oneness with all - terrific images, words & music. and remember dates "& far beyond. look for South Carolina group

The world will live as one, come & join us." John Lennon used his imagination, now we can experience the Reality of the truth of Oneness. Oneness = Funness!
Book group (Awakening into Oneness) at 5pm on Wed. with Oneness Blessing Group following at 6:30 @ Unity. Bonnie was telling us in our sweetly deep Monday gr...oup that she reads the "Awakening..." book by Arjuna Ardagh before she goes to sleep, and then gives Oneness Blessings to family & friends. I asked her if she was dreaming giving?
She replied "no, it is Real!"

You just coined a new saying ... Love it!
... ONENESS = FUNNESS .... It sure does ....
I can see some new T-Shirts!!!

Ron Alexander
Hmm, thanks Patricia - Rabindrath Tagore wrote so elegantly: "Joy is the realization of the truth of oneness, the oneness of our soul with supreme Love." My writing seems so silly this AM, and I

Patricia: not silly at all ... Just joyful ... Blessings of this sweet new day to you ...

The Only One
From human's perspective
in this intricate game of love,
Its so easy to become confused
And think you are the do-er.
...But from God's Infinite Certainty,
He always Knows
That He is the only One
Who should ever be put on trial.


"The World will Live as One."

Josephine: Awareness itself being. Knowing I AM the ONE and the ALL . I can not be another.. . To me oneness is - there is none other but the ONE. The only One that Is. That which has within Itself all that really is. The life of everything and the Love through everything. The One Presence. Within this One all live.

I am thinking that the Essential main message from ACIM & possibly all religion/spirituality is "We are all innocent loving the best we can, and all attacks are a call for loving help." I am innocent, you are innocent, she is innocent, He is innocent, we are All innocent loving the best we can. In Innocent Loving Oneness, ron

Who We Are, Who We Are Not (Part 1) You have created the Illusion of Separation in order that you may experience the reality of Oneness. Only when you are outside the reality can you experience it. When you are part of The Whole, you cannot experience yourself AS The Whole, because there is nothing else, and, in the absence of that which you are not, that which you are, is not. Communion With God

I Love You (Healed by the Love of God)

Healed by the Love of God

"How do we really know that the Universe rests on the shoulders of love?"

"Behold what manner of love God hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the children of God."
--1 John 3:1

It has been truly said that love is the lodestone of life, the treasure of earth, and the highest gift of heaven. We all wish to feel that we are kept in the arms of love, protected by its shelter, and warmed by its feeling. But someone might ask, "How do we really know that the Universe rests on the shoulders of love?" The answer is simpler than it might appear. For instance, no one is ever harmed by love. The more love there is in our life, the better off we are. While the opposite to love, which is hate and dislike, can actually consume us mentally and destroy our health physically. If then love builds up while it's opposite destroys, we may be certain that there is a universal reality to it. That we are actually are immersed in an Infinite Love as well as Divine Wisdom. And we must learn to feel the presence of this Love and rely on it.
Ernest Holmes
What does love feel like? It can be a warm blissful feeling transmitted by a loving Energy field, or through someone's eyes, hug, touch, words, presence or prayer.
My maternal Grandmother was not a toucher, hugger or even a talker. However, I could feel her unconditional love without a doubt! Knowing her, I am sure she prayed for me alot.

Whale Communicators: Loving Hearts think inclusive thoughts and find Love everywhere... fearful minds think of separation & get more fear...

Direct Knowingness of Healing Divine Love: More and more I realize that giving and receiving the Oneness Blessing after the opening meditation, is giving & receiving directly from the Divine. Giving and Receiving Healing Divine Love. The more we give and receive Directly the more faith (Knowledge, Certitude) in Divine Love! I am so grateful to be sharing this great Healing with you All!

Amazing Oneness Blessing Photo & Story

Comment by Prudence Prajna Blasdell 53 minutes ago Blessings Ron,

the photo was taken in Oct 2007, when my best friend of almost 20 years was visiting from Tennessee and attended Unity Church in Winston-Salem, receiving The Oneness Blessing for the very first time.

after taking the picture, i happened to look in the viewer window, and it was entirely bright white light!

Brenda is an ordained minister for many years (she went to seminary after experiencing a spinal cord injury as a result of being shot by someone when she attempted to intervene on behalf of her mother, who the person was assaulting). Brenda incurred the same level of spinal cord injury as Christopher Reeve (and in fact, her married name now is Reeves), with the prognosis of total neck down paralysis for the rest of her life.

Brenda did not accept the prognosis, and continued her yoga practice/discipline, MENTALLY, and went on to regain sensation and then mobility. she attends to all personal tasks herself, tasks that we take entirely for granted, e.g. personal hygiene, dressing -- though now, due to shoulder discomfort, she needs assistance "transferring", in and out of bed, into the car, etc.

She truly IS a Bright White Light! and The Gift of The Divine for her first Oneness Blessing ever was reflected in this photo.

here is a more detailed accounting of the events of Brenda's "Yoga Miracle":

She is now a Oneness Blessing facilitator, and we hope to go to Oneness Trainer's course in India (if finances manifest allowing me to return for a third time).

much Love & Gratitude IN Divine Grace

The Power of Blessing in the Evolution of Consciousness
Oneness is the heart's deepest longing, the song of the ages.
Rick: "I knew there was something more than what I was going through on a daily basis in my life, the frustrations trying to control everything around me. I started to realize that I am not in the driver's seat here. Then something shifted. After the first few blessings, I started to feel joy for no particular reason. I started to feel full. I could look at anything and just start to enjoy it."
Catherine Oxenberg (the actress): "My husband was talking; what he was saying would have normally really annoyed me. I would have reacted to it, and I would have felt that feeling in my gut, that reactive place in my body. Instead, everything that came out of his mouth felt like bubbles of joy in my body. I realized I was actually experiencing him, maybe for the first time, without reacting to him. There was nothing during the event that gave me any indication that any shift was occuring at all. Nothing. But later, I realized I had experienced a profound shift in consciousness without even realizing it."
Catherine realized on the way home in the car something had shifted. For some, it may take days or even weeks or months to notice a change has gradually crept up on them.
(p. 32-33)
The ultimate potential of the Oneness Blessing is much more that its effect on the individual. The Blessing can precipitate a shift toward a completely different state of consciousness, where the sense of "me" as a separate entity dissolves. What remains is a simple and direct realization of Oneness, unclouded by the conceptual mind. The Oneness Blessing has been able to catalyze this shift for thousands of people, both in India and in the rest of the world. This is something so profoundly simple and glorious that it defies logical description. Oneness is the heart's deepest longing, the song of the ages. (p. 149)
An End of Personal Suffering
Although we live in a world that has plenty of pain, and although the heart is still open in compassion to feel that pain, the sense of personal suffering is gone. We realize that suffering is to feel pain while trapped inside a soap opera...
It's not that suffering is being avoided, but rather there is no resistance to it. There is no longer any internal conflict. The end of suffering is the fruit of unconditional acceptance, rather than the chasing of pleasure & avoiding pain.
Awakening into Oneness finally has to come as a gift of grace, because it is the final curtain call on the sense of separate me being in charge. This shift happens when we take our hands off the steering wheel and open to grace.
The Oneness Blessing is the response of that grace to an open heart.
When we begin to accept ourselves exactly as we are,
experiencing the full content of each moment without conflict or resistance,
and join together around the world with others whose hearts are flowering,
the Light of Infinite Love will flood the Earth!
- M.M.

Ho'oponopono song -"Forgive 77x70"

For those of you who don't believe that forgiveness is necessary - you probably don't believe an ego or a body is necessary either! (And on another plane - out of the body, you may be right). Remember Jesus says how many times must we forgive? - "77x70" or otherword infinity!
Ron Alexander Ho'Oponopono is a perfect Oneness Prayer "I am sorry, please forgive me...thank you. I love you."

Since we are all One, we must take responsibility for creating the experience that needs forgiveness. We must forgive ourselves, and then trust that the forgiveness will extend to others.

...Saying "I am sorry" is taking responsibility for creating the experience that does not feel right - that is not in my life's flow. I have to own my part for it showing up in my life.

It helps me be a less judgemental, more humble person.
Then comes "Please forgive me" as I have to forgive myself first.

Then I thank myself for forgiving myself, which puts me in a flow of gratitude for Life.

"I love you" helps set me free from guilt and shame. and I become more aware of Divine Love and loving "my neighbor as myself." I cannot love others without loving myself first.

This Ho'Oponopono prayer has helped me to humbly release judgement and be a more compassionate person.
I am so grateful! May All Beings Be Happy & Free

"I am sorry, please forgive me (if I have disturbed you)...thank you (for I know you will, and sinc...e we are one, I know we are forgiving & forgiven). I love you

The Root Cause of Suffering is Feeling Separated

Separation as cause for suffering underscores the importance of the Oneness Movement!

‎"All spirituality is created to relieve suffering." The Buddha
(And the root cause of suffering is the feeling of separation. Viola, the vital importance of the Oneness Movement. Todays group was sweetsweetsweethealingDivine, and keeps getting better all the time.)

Mother Teresa, when asked how she could work with lepers and others with infections?
"I see the Face of Christ when I see them." There is also another story of a writer going to interview her. The author, at first, found an abandoned newborn wrapped in newspaper on the steps leading up to the orphanage. She anxiously carried the baby into the nursery. There she handed the infant over to a nun, who appeared happy, and announced, that the tiny girl was number 44. She noticed other nuns working joyously with the other babies who appeared very calm. Since the writer had to wait for her interview, she busied herself with the little ones, and lost track of time in her enjoyment. When she got into see Mother, she found a little old bent over woman, who humbly told her "you must be a 'pencil for God' too!" Then all of a sudden there was a loud clamor outside with two very richly dressed Indians came bursting in the room. The man had an expensive big jewel on his turban and the woman had expensive jewelry all over her. They shoved the camera at the interviewer and loudly gestured that they wanted photos with Mother Teresa. The richly dressed wife pulled the Mother between them and even pulled up on her chin, and obviously hurt M. Teresa, who made no protest. The writer was horrified. After curtly being told to take several photographs, they abruptly left without a hint of gratitude to M. Teresa and to the author. The writer, who was furiously angry, by now noticed that Mother T. was seemingly not perturbed. So before the interview resumed, she asked M. T. how she could not be angry at the rude obnoxious couple. M. Teresa answered "well, the rich have their needs too." Obviously, Mother Teresa saw the Face of Christ on them also.

Every being is an abode of God, worthy of respect and reverence.Hindu Scripture

This goes hand in hand with yesterday's "If you look at every human being as a Divine mirror,
you will know yourself and understand life."
Sherif Baba

A mind committed to compassion is like an overflowing reservoir - a constant source of energy, determination and kindness. This mind can also be likened to a seed; when cultivated, it gives rise to many other qualities, such as forgiveness, tolerance, inner strength, and the confidence to overcome fear and insecurity. ~Dalai Lama.

‎"If you judge people, you have no time to love them."
- Mother Teresa
Ron Alexander: She has such great quotes, thank you! Here is another: "We are created to love and be loved." & "If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other."

“The Egg” by Andy Weir

You were on your way home when you died.
It was a car accident. Nothing particularly remarkable, but fatal nonetheless. You left behind a wife and two children. It was a painless death. The EMTs tried their best to save you, but to no avail. Your body was so utterly shattered you were better off, trust me.
And that’s when you met me.
“What… what happened?” You asked. “Where am I?”
“You died,” I said, matter-of-factly. No point in mincing words.
“There was a… a truck and it was skidding…”
“Yup,” I said.
“I… I died?”
“Yup. But don’t feel bad about it. Everyone dies,” I said.
You looked around. There was nothingness. Just you and me. “What is this place?” You asked. “Is this the afterlife?”
“More or less,” I said.
“Are you god?” You asked.
“Yup,” I replied. “I’m God.”
“My kids… my wife,” you said.
“What about them?”
“Will they be all right?”
“That’s what I like to see,” I said. “You just died and your main concern is for your family. That’s good stuff right there.”
You looked at me with fascination. To you, I didn’t look like God. I just looked like some man. Or possibly a woman. Some vague authority figure, maybe. More of a grammar school teacher than the almighty.
“Don’t worry,” I said. “They’ll be fine. Your kids will remember you as perfect in every way. They didn’t have time to grow contempt for you. You wife will cry on the outside, but will be secretly relieved. To be fair, your marriage was falling apart. If it’s any consolation, she’ll feel very guilty for feeling relieved.”
“Oh,” you said. “So what happens now? Do I go to heaven or hell or something?”
“Neither,” I said. “You’ll be reincarnated.”
“Ah,” you said. “So the Hindus were right,”
“All religions are right in their own way,” I said. “Walk with me.”
You followed along as we strode through the void. “Where are we going?”
“Nowhere in particular,” I said. “It’s just nice to walk while we talk.”
“So what’s the point, then?” You asked. “When I get reborn, I’ll just be a blank slate, right? A baby. So all my experiences and everything I did in this life won’t matter.”
“Not so!” I said. “You have within you all the knowledge and experiences of all your past lives. You just don’t remember them right now.”
I stopped walking and took you by the shoulders. “Your soul is more magnificent, beautiful, and gigantic than you can possibly imagine. A human mind can only contain a tiny fraction of what you are. It’s like sticking your finger in a glass of water to see if it’s hot or cold. You put a tiny part of yourself into the vessel, and when you bring it back out, you’ve gained all the experiences it had.
“You’ve been in a human for the last 48 years, so you haven’t stretched out yet and felt the rest of your immense consciousness. If we hung out here for long enough, you’d start remembering everything. But there’s no point to doing that between each life.”
“How many times have I been reincarnated, then?”
“Oh lots. Lots and lots. An in to lots of different lives.” I said. “This time around, you’ll be a Chinese peasant girl in 540 AD.”
“Wait, what?” You stammered. “You’re sending me back in time?”
“Well, I guess technically. Time, as you know it, only exists in your universe. Things are different where I come from.”
“Where you come from?” You said.
“Oh sure,” I explained “I come from somewhere. Somewhere else. And there are others like me. I know you’ll want to know what it’s like there, but honestly you wouldn’t understand.”
“Oh,” you said, a little let down. “But wait. If I get reincarnated to other places in time, I could have interacted with myself at some point.”
“Sure. Happens all the time. And with both lives only aware of their own lifespan you don’t even know it’s happening.”
“So what’s the point of it all?”
“Seriously?” I asked. “Seriously? You’re asking me for the meaning of life? Isn’t that a little stereotypical?”
“Well it’s a reasonable question,” you persisted.
I looked you in the eye. “The meaning of life, the reason I made this whole universe, is for you to mature.”
“You mean mankind? You want us to mature?”
“No, just you. I made this whole universe for you. With each new life you grow and mature and become a larger and greater intellect.”
“Just me? What about everyone else?”
“There is no one else,” I said. “In this universe, there’s just you and me.”
You stared blankly at me. “But all the people on earth…”
“All you. Different incarnations of you.”
“Wait. I’m everyone!?”
“Now you’re getting it,” I said, with a congratulatory slap on the back.
“I’m every human being who ever lived?”
“Or who will ever live, yes.”
“I’m Abraham Lincoln?”
“And you’re John Wilkes Booth, too,” I added.
“I’m Hitler?” You said, appalled.
“And you’re the millions he killed.”
“I’m Jesus?”
“And you’re everyone who followed him.”
You fell silent.
“Every time you victimized someone,” I said, “you were victimizing yourself. Every act of kindness you’ve done, you’ve done to yourself. Every happy and sad moment ever experienced by any human was, or will be, experienced by you.”
You thought for a long time.
“Why?” You asked me. “Why do all this?”
“Because someday, you will become like me. Because that’s what you are. You’re one of my kind. You’re my child.”
“Whoa,” you said, incredulous. “You mean I’m a god?”
“No. Not yet. You’re a fetus. You’re still growing. Once you’ve lived every human life throughout all time, you will have grown enough to be born.”
“So the whole universe,” you said, “it’s just…”
“An egg.” I answered. “Now it’s time for you to move on to your next life.”
And I sent you on your way.

Forever Oneness

Forever Oneness,
who sings to us in silence,
who teaches us through each other.
Guide my steps with strength and wisdom.
May I see the lessons as I walk,
honor the Purpose of all things.
Help me touch with respect,
always speak from behind my eyes.
Let me observe, not judge.
May I cause no harm,
and leave music and beauty after my visit.
When I return to forever
may the circle be closed
and the spiral be broader.

~ Bee Lake ~
(an Aboriginal poet)

The Dalai Lama: "The reality of our planet now is that every nation is interdependent, interconnected. So, the concept of "we" and "'they" is no longer valid. The entire world should be part of "we". One's own future entirely depends on the rest of the world. Yes, the United States is the biggest nation, the most powerful nation, the most powerful economically, but your future depends on the rest of the world. That's the reality. So treat others as a part of yourself. We need a concept of oneness, of humanity. We need a sense of global responsiblity."

Oneness Blessing/Deeksha, by Bobbi Newman (edited by ron)

The Oneness Blessing/Deeksha is a gift of grace from God. It is the transfer of sacred energy freely given. It is an awakening to higher states of consciousness. The blessing is transferred through the instrument of the blesser’s hands, which are placed upon the crown of the recipients head.

The blessing opens the heart and begins a change in perception to Oneness with all creation and the Divine. Freeing the senses, it enables clear perception, dissolves negative life patterns and stored traumas, and allows deep emotional and physical healing. Be aware of frequent spontaneous outbreaks of love, joy and peace.

His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama: Ethics for Our Time

On July 6, 2010 His Holiness the Dalai Lama turns 75, according to the Western calendar.

This is a good time to talk about what the Dalai Lama means to the world. Oftentimes, as part of my work here at the International Campaign for Tibet, I have come across people from, and working on, conflict areas similar to Tibet who want to know the reason why the Dalai Lama and the Tibetans seem to strike a chord among the American public. Part of the reason for this, I feel, lies with the Dalai Lama's personality.

There is the traditional Tibetan perspective of His Holiness that is shared by followers of Tibetan Buddhism along the Himalayas, including in Mongolia, the Russian Federation, Nepal, Bhutan, etc. This perspective regards His Holiness as the manifestation of Chenresig (Avalokiteshvara), the Bodhisattva of Compassion. He is someone who has the capacity to be fully enlightened but has chosen to come back to this human world for the sake of sentient beings.

Prior to 1959, an average Tibetan could only hope to meet someone who may have been fortunate to get a glimpse of His Holiness from a distance. At best this glimpse may have been at a religious teaching or when the Dalai Lama undertook his irregular travels in Tibet. It would be rare to meet someone who had an audience with His Holiness. The structure of the Tibetan society in independent Tibet was such that there was very limited access to His Holiness. Elaborate protocol was the rule of the game. To Tibetans, the Dalai Lama was the focus of their daily prayers. Nobody even dreamt of any close encounters with him.

But in the post-1959 period, following the flight of His Holiness into exile forced by Chinese incursion into Tibet, the institution of the Dalai Lama underwent a dramatic transformation, much to the delight of the young 14th incarnation. Aided by circumstances, the institution became less protocol-heavy, more accessible to the public and more practical. Over a period of time, this led to a close interaction between His Holiness and the Tibetan people, a historical development of sort. The most obvious indication of this metamorphosis is the increase in the number of Tibetans with the first name Tenzin. Almost every other Tibetan who is born in exile and under the age of 40 may have this first name. Tenzin is the name that His Holiness gives when followers of Tibetan Buddhism resort to the convention of approaching a lama for providing a name to their child. Prior to 1959 only a privileged few Tibetan children may have had the opportunity to get their names from His Holiness.

Life in exile has also led to His Holiness' interaction with the outside world, mainly through his visits throughout the world. This has provided the Tibetans with a new side of the Dalai Lama. While most of the Tibetans still hold strong to their Buddhist faith and thus subscribe to the traditional perspective of the Dalai Lama, they have also been able to see his human side. Accordingly, His Holiness has become the role model for the young Tibetans.

I belong to the generation of Tibetans who grew up in exile, a generation which had to be the spokesman for our people without having the direct experience of life in Tibet. This change in our situation, however, has given me a fresh insight into the Dalai Lama and has provided people like me with the opportunity unimaginable by my parent's generation.

Growing up in India, I did not dream even for a minute that one day I would be in the same room as the Dalai Lama, leave alone being able to strike a conversation with him. But that day arrived in the late 1980s and is fresh in my memory even to this day. I was accompanying an Indian photojournalist to the residence of His Holiness in Dharamsala as part of my work at the Tibetan Department of Information and International Relations. Between photo sessions, His Holiness looked toward me, just a newcomer to the Tibetan civil service, and asked me from which part of Tibet I was. That one ordinary-sounding question altered the course of Tibetan social history, to me at least. The Dalai Lama had spoken to me, an ordinary Tibetan, and had acknowledged my presence. Since then I have been privileged to interact with His Holiness on quite a few occasions in the course of my work.

My interaction with His Holiness is in a way symbolic of the transformation of the institution of the Dalai Lama that the 14th incarnation, Tenzin Gyatso, has brought about. The significance of the transformation can be comprehended only when one has looked at the history of modern Tibet, as well as that of the 14th Dalai Lama. To be objective the course of modern Tibetan history dictated certain changes in the institution as well as in the Tibetan society as a whole.

However, things may not have changed as rapidly as it did had the 14th Dalai Lama not complemented historical development with his own liberal outlook and foresight. My fascination (if I even dare use this term) with His Holiness is more to do with his social activism and less with his religious role. While His Holiness' outreach to the international community in the field of religion and spirituality, as well as in drawing attention to the plight of the Tibetan people, is acknowledged internationally, not many know much about his influence in the social thinking of the Tibetan people and his other followers.

The establishment of a system of universal modern education for young Tibetans, mainly with the assistance of the Indian government, in the wake of his flight to India in 1959 was the most important factor in changing the Tibetan society in exile. That one act by the Dalai Lama not only provided a level playing field for Tibetans at all levels of society in terms of educational opportunity, but the blend of modern and traditional education that was part of the curriculum resulted in a new generation of Tibetans, modern in outlook and also having knowledge of our cultural heritage.

His Holiness is a social reformer and an iconoclast. Relying on his moral authority and the well-founded justification of Buddhism as a rational religion, His Holiness has altered those theological perceptions of Tibetan Buddhists that did not conform to scientific reality. This included asking the monk community to accept the earth as round instead of flat, which is contrary to Buddhist scriptures, and removing the mystery behind the institution of the Dalai Lama, thereby forcing the very many lama institutions to follow suit. He has encouraged doing away with irrelevant monastic rituals and political protocols. He has transformed Tibetan Buddhism from being ritualistic to being a practice relevant to any individual interested in it.

His Holiness has been able to make effective use of his coveted position to change the social system not only of the Tibetans but also of communities that share the same cultural values as Tibetans. For example, although people living in the Tibetan cultural environment do not have a caste system, people following certain professions are looked down upon.

There is a story of how a simple act by His Holiness changed the outlook of the Ladakhi people (an ethnic Tibetan community that resides in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir that borders Tibet) towards the musicians in their society. It is said that a community of musicians is traditionally looked down upon in the Ladakhi society. During one of his visits to Ladakh, His Holiness interacted with one such musician, took the drum sticks from his hand, and beat the traditional drum himself a couple of times. This sent a strong message to the Ladakhi people.

One issue that has personally affected me is His Holiness' contribution to changing the dietary habit of the Tibetan people. Tibetan Buddhists traditionally consume meat, and the reasoning goes that Tibet in the past did not have adequate non-meat products. Since 1959, the Tibetan society has changed greatly. Today, Tibetans, whether living in exile or inside Tibet, do have access to vegetarian food. However, meat continues to be an integral part of the Tibetan diet even now, much to the consternation and confusion of outside observers who tend to equate Buddhism with vegetarianism.

Many people do not comprehend the significant role His Holiness has been playing in promoting vegetarianism. Through his personal example (he became total vegetarian for some years, but then had to resume some non-vegetarian diet on the advice of his physicians) and consistent advocacy using his coveted position, His Holiness has started leading the meat-eating Tibetan society along the path of vegetarianism. In the Tibetan community he has encouraged food workshops promoting vegetarianism. A meat-eating society has overnight started taking gradual steps towards vegetarianism. This is a significant development. There are increasing numbers of Tibetans like myself who have become vegetarians, and our encouragement has come from His Holiness.

His Holiness is also a role model for a balanced approach to life. He can adjust easily to royalty and heads of state as well as to a simple monk in a meditation cave. Several years back, I overheard one Swiss tourist exclaim "Sehr einfach!" -- very simple -- when he found that he was traveling in the same tram car as His Holiness. He can be very solemn in a ritual-filled Buddhist ceremony or be jovial among schoolchildren in a Tibetan settlement.

During the Dalai Lama's May visit to the United States that included trips to Indiana, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and New York, I was struck by his categorical assertion that the world is becoming more gentle and positive. This is quite contrary to popular feeling of the world becoming more violent and crisis-ridden. It has certainly provided much food for thought to students of the developing society.

His Holiness was adamantly clear during his lectures, his brief appearance on NBC's The Today Show, and during his meetings with the press in general that the world is becoming more positive. The indicators of his world view were the broader human concern for man-made or natural calamities worldwide (shown in the aftermath of the Asian tsunami and the earthquakes in Haiti, Chile and Tibet), the existence of peace movements throughout the world (which was visible prior to the United States' war in Iraq, for example); the emergence of an environmental movement (there was no such movement in the beginning of the previous century); and the increased interaction between science and religion (science is showing interest in not just external matters but also in the study of mind). In short, through a comparison between the 20th century and the 21st century so far, the Dalai Lama feels the world is becoming more positive.

The Dalai Lama feels that much of the blame for the popular view of the world becoming worse should be placed on the media, which tends to always highlight the negative (even though it involves only a miniscule amount of the world's total population) while taking the positive for granted.

The Dalai Lama has also been talking about his three commitments in this life. In addition to finding a solution to the Tibetan issue, he also embraces two fundamental commitments to promoting human values and religious harmony.

He refers to the "oneness" of all religions in that they all convey the same messages in attempting to make us better human beings. He thinks that at one level there is philosophical difference, which is a reality. At another level, he says all religions preach the message of compassion, love and tolerance, etc. The Dalai Lama feels we need to prioritize by treating the philosophical differences as secondary to the more important common messages. This is a worldview that would certainly make all religious practitioners rethink their approach to spirituality.

Similarly, in terms of human values, the Dalai Lama feels that differences in caste, creed, color, etc. should be placed at a secondary level to the more fundamental thinking of the sameness of human beings, who want happiness and shun suffering. This is a simple message, but placed in the context of the Dalai Lama's worldview, it certainly gets a greater resonance.

Generally, Tibetans believe in the ability of the Dalai Lama to liberate them from the suffering of this material world. That is a spiritual and subjective belief that only people subscribing to Tibetan Buddhist principles may comprehend. But the new perspective of His Holiness
as a role model is one that may be shared by Tibetans and non-Tibetans alike.

Clarity - Embraced by the Changeless

Wherever you find your vision, your uplift, your haven, we wish for you moments like Thomas Merton’s, when he came “barefoot and undisturbed” upon the Buddha statues of Polonnaruwa, Ceylon. “Looking at these figures,” he writes in his Asian Journal, “I was suddenly, almost forcibly, jerked out of the habitual, half-tied vision of things, and an inner clearness, clarity, as if exploding from the rocks themselves, became evident and obvious…. All problems are resolved and everything is clear, simply because what matters is clear.” In such moments, we do not even need to worry about how to cope with change, because that which is changeless has embraced us.
