Unity

flower of life 11 23 12 (2)

~

Unity changes everything

~

There are two worlds:

the world of unity

and the world of separation

~

The world of separation

sets us against each other

and even if we come together

as teams

it is to defeat another team

~

The world of separation

longs for unity

and seeks unity

but remains unwilling

to let go

of separation

~

The world of separation

is very complicated

identities are built

around rules

that have nothing to do

with the natural flow

of life

~

The world of separation

demands much work

to be maintained–

aggression meets defenses

that calcify

and defensiveness attracts aggression

that intensifies

no power great enough!

no defense strong enough!

never seeing the truth behind the fear

never finding the peace after the war

because there is no unity

in separation

~

The world of separation

is uncomfortable

and always threatened

by death

by unity

~

The world of unity

is truth

truth beyond concepts

which divide reality

providing illusory solid ground

where the mind feels comfortable

for a little while

until it starts slipping

~

The world of unity

is truth

the truth of the simple experience

which we share

which, in those happy moments of gathering

does not need words

or rules

because we come without expectations

naked, stripped of our fears

to look in one another’s eyes

and see only

recognition

i am seeing

you are seeing

this is all

~

The world of unity

provides each moment

as a challenge

to abandon

separation

~

The world of unity

blossoms in the spaces

of what previously appeared

to be solid

and so, magically,

paths open up

which we never believed possible

~

The world of unity

is in service to the whole

simply by being

unity

~

The world is a reflection

of perspective

seen from the periphery

it appears imperfect

but when the center sees itself

all things gather together

meeting as one

and unity changes everything

  1. Thank you so much for posting that beautiful music. I just did my morning yoga to it. I also liked your poem, especially the lines ‘The world of unity / blossoms in the spaces / of what previously appeared / to be solid . . .’
