We are all one energy. There is no difference between us. We are all the same. But in human form it’s hard to remember that.
The nowhere that you came from
Rumi says, “Live in the nowhere that you came from even though you have an address here.” I want to know more about this unseen world, this “nowhere that I came from.”
The Web of Life
One of the metaphors for the invisible world is the “web of life”. The problem I have with that is that when I see myself as a strand in the web of life it makes me feel separate – a strand, a thread, a single, stand-apart expression. And with that image of a thread, I can see how the web of life could have some holes in it, like a worn piece of fabric. No, that metaphor doesn’t work for me.
The Cosmic Soup
The metaphor that resonates more deeply with me is “cosmic soup”. If I’m part of the cosmic soup, then I can understand how my flavor (choices) will influence the whole, how our flavor will influence the whole.
Rumi says, “You are not a drop in the ocean, you are the entire ocean in a drop.” Everything is within us. We are within everything
What makes you feel One With All?
I work with phrases like the Great Mystery, All-That-Is, Great Nothingness. I talk about the Invisible Self. But words limit us. Words are creations of our Body Suit mind held in captivity by our own human limitations. We need to find a way to know ourselves as being in and of the “nowhere that we came from.”
The Unseen World
We know only 5% with our conscious mind. That means 95% of what exists requires us to find new ways to explore, and feel, and interpret, and understand. You imagination does that. Your intuition does that too. Visioning can take you there, as can meditation and journeying.
Whatever form you choose, become more aware that you are purposefully seeking to understand the unknown, the unseen, the nowhere that you came from.
95%. That’s a lot of territory to explore. What do you call it? How will you absorb it?
