Ordinary men hate solitude. But the Master makes use of it, embracing his aloneness, realizing he is one with the whole universe.
You are the universe experiencing itself subjectively. You are the universe. You are the centre of the universe and the universe is in the centre of you. Imagine the big bang and how you are living on the edge of the bang – the bang is still going off and every move you make is just the extension of this big bang. So you are the universe still evolving and creating whatever the universe desires. This is what it means to be the universe.
We are one in the sense that we are all the same thing – we are all the universe. We have never or ever will be separate from this oneness. Separation is a construct of the mind – an idea that is necessary for personal growth – but an idea taken too far guided by the desires of ego. Don’t listen to the ego – it’s desires are false. This means that nothing that it ever desires will bring any good to any one even yourself.
Race, religion and nations are all methods of separation. Anything good would not allow separation – this is a simple test for positivity and negativity. Anything negative separates fights, arguments etc and anything good brings things together – good is simply a reflection of the true nature of the Universe which is oneness.
So live in flow with the nature of Universe and this will being you joy and endless happiness.
Edgar Mitchell, Apollo 14 astronaut, describes this oneness when asked about how his values changed after having a samadhi experience in Space.
“Well, they’ve deepened, in the sense that having the samadhi experience means that the first thing you recognize is what the mystics have always said, that in some mysterious way the universe is totally interconnected. You live that, and you feel that. And you recognize that what we do to each other, we do to ourselves. Kind of like the traditional near-death experience—you feel a compassion, you are more sensitive to nature, to the universe itself. So your values are deepened, and they become more there, and you have to live them.”
