One People

I just posted a new free podcast, “one people”, on my website. I won’t repeat the message here but talking about the concept of “one people” has been sitting with me all day.

One of the signs of a disconnect from our Sacred Selves is when we judge others. I like to think of each of us as a droplet of water in a wave, each droplet doing their own thing and going in their own direction but at the same time being part of the same wave flowing in or flowing out as one.

There is something glorious about that wild wave rushing against the shore. It is so powerful, so beautiful, so brilliant as the water droplets find their way to the destination – can you see those individual droplets leaping through the air, glistening in the sunlight? Brilliant!

But, sadly, as human beings, our ego voice, in an attempt to protect our “selves” (not the “big S” Spiritual Selves), tries to keep us focused on our own individual journey of being the first, the best, the brightest or some other descriptive word. In this aim for survival and superiority comes judgment.

It is as if we take a snapshot of a single moment and can only see the other droplets in a certain state rather than seeing them on their journey in the wave. We see others as competitors, as mean, as snobs, as instigators, as [insert your own descriptor here] and we forget to see that they are on their own journeys, having experienced many things in their lives, been corrupted by their pasts, struggling to survive in their present and make the most for their future.

This disconnect from the wave breaks us into individual droplets… I feel a great sadness at this moment as I type this … we are one people, one wave. We have to start releasing the thoughts and the feelings that keep us, US, from connecting with the wave. This isn’t about the others, this is about our own individual journeys. It’s all we have control over. Right?

We, you, I, need to release the negative bonds to this disconnect. We, I, need to let go of the hatred, the judgments and all the other methods that we use that keeps us from being part of the wave that is moving forward.

I am of the wave. I am the wave. We are the wave. And I admire your brilliancy as you glisten under the sun, as you walk your journey as part of the wave.

    Certainly an area of improvement for myself – it is so easy to jump to judgment mode, but you are right in that it separates us, not in a way that celebrates our individuality, but in a way that pits one against the other in competition. I’m glad we always have a way back to this wave.

      thanks Pearl. I like that — it’s not celebrating the uniqueness but pits us against each other!
      Here’s to the wave!!!!! 🙂
