I've moved from hibernation-withdrawal mode to being more aware of my usual state of mental silence and emotional stillness most of the time.
As I described this state to a friend, my spirit explained the following to him which allowed my human self to hear it too :-) "My life now allows me to be in a state of silence, peace and stillness and I'm holding that state on behalf of those who can't do it for themselves because of the demands and responsibilities of their daily life. I hold this quiet space for you to access it more easily when you take the time to slow down and get quiet."
Later, as I contemplated this statement, I was shown that this is how Oneness works. If all at once, everyone chose to do exactly what is in his or her heart to do, do and be all the things we yearn for . . . one's life would immediately flow together in a state of peace, joy, love, satisfaction, etc. because we would all be in the flow together providing all that we need and receiving all that we desire. "If only" would not exist anymore because we would be doing it - being it - all the time, constantly flowing with perfect synchronicity in and out of the circumstances and connections with others that mutually serve each other's deepest heart desires. Because we haven't made this choice 'all at once' it seems difficult if not impossible to do what is in our heart to do.
Then, as I contemplated the stunning "Blue Daisy" fractal below (creator unknown), I gained a greater insight about the concept of Oneness.
May your Holy-days be filled with inner peace, gratitude, joy and love and remember to give yourself to others in ways that nurture your spirit.
