CONTEMPLATIVE QUOTES from ‘WE ARE ALL ONE’ by J.M.Harrison
For coming from the one Source, we are One.
When we judge, we judge ourselves.
When we congratulate, we congratulate ourselves.
We are a living sea that cannot be separated.
We flow to and from the Source of All Being.
Lost in time yet present in eternity.
It is not the source of the water that wonders if the sea exists, but the stream that seeks to know itself, for the Source is all-knowing, all-loving. When we feel weak and unable to be what we know we can be and what we know that we are, take strength in other examples of our being, for this is how we have evolved, by a conscious natural selection of what was truly significant and sustainable. We are all streams of consciousness flowing with freewill, with many varied journeys, yet One destination.

When we feel disconnected from the whole (the One-ness), then we are in a fractionate state, so called because we are in denial or unconscious of being whole. This is a negative state of being and one that encourages further division to enter our lives. Situations arise in day to day life giving us the opportunity to allow or deny our alignment with this ‘fractionation’.
~ ~ ~
Learning to develop reason beyond objective thought will allow the creation of a positive future for ALL of Earth’s inhabitants.

What we have discovered as the truth is that we cannot fear something that we do not give our attention to. So if fear invades your mind, withdraw the attention from the focus of that fear and it will disperse. If we can focus on fear, we can focus on the opposing pole of unconditional love and we must learn to focus on love for all. Likewise, withdraw the attention from the trapped mind of the ‘self’ and you will find the place where the truth of ALL being resides.
~ ~ ~
Transcending our objective mind consciousness we can arrive at a blending of our physical and spiritual states. This is what we call spatial consciousness. Utilizing this state of consciousness requires perseverance but everyone can awaken to it. And that is exactly what it is, an awakening of your consciousness to the spiritual truths of your being. Becoming conscious of the real you. No longer dependant just upon accumulated repetitive thought but on inspirational feeling. Losing the negative aspects of your being and replacing them with positive dynamic qualities that inspire both yourself and others. When we experience the reality of this state, we grasp the potential in ourselves and the evolutionary possibilities for ALL mankind.~ ~ ~
She flows throughout eternity untouched and pure, an occasional advisor to the finite, eternally faithful in her ingenious word.
When we feel the truth, it comes closer, like the invisible force of a powerful magnet, all the time pulling us to its source. Have confidence in your awareness of truth, and rest assured that it is not yours and yours alone, otherwise it would not be approaching truth.

Spiritual ‘teaching’ requires a distinct hierarchy of levels or degrees of capability, whereas in fact all spiritual capability is identical and only the present awareness is different.
~ ~ ~
The Path will provide a time for laughter, a time for tears, a time to give, a time to share and a time to move on. We may turn which way we will, only discovering those hidden signposts that indicate the best way forward when we have spent substantial time lost in the confused, overgrown brambles of the ‘self’.
~ ~ ~
At the end of our physical lives, we can only look back at the true significance of our existence by reflecting upon not what we have done for ourselves, but rather that which we have done for others.
What we have done for others, we have truly done for ourselves, for we are parts of a greater being, we are all One, and we need to see and feel the significance of that in our daily lives in order to proceed.
~ ~ ~
So seek to be whole, for that is why we created ourselves, to experience the journey, to test our resolve, to marvel at our inventions, to be lost in the visual beauty of an emotive work of art, to soar with the pulsating rhythm of the music, to sense and touch the splendid magnificence of mother natures’ creation, but most of all, to discover our true selves, to be made whole once more, to find you, to find me, to light upon an understanding of the eternal truth; We are all One.
~ ~ ~
If you own nothing, then nothing owns you; and you may begin to realize what you actually have that is of significant lasting value.
~ ~ ~
For the treasure we seek is the wisdom of knowing oneself, in order that the house of self may be put in order.
Far better to be rich in spirit than to be possessed by your own wealth, for that is the nature of the material world; it is a world of possessor and possessed.
~ ~ ~
If we have any real worth, then we are able to perceive and acknowledge worth in others. When we can see the worth in others, then we are truly worthy ourselves. When we can acknowledge the light in another, then we are truly enlightened.
