In this world of duality, we all feel that we are different from everyone else. We know thousands of people of different ages, religions, political beliefs and ideals. Although we constantly seek unity, we perceive separation everywhere. We fight to heal the planet, we create conflict resolution programs, we march for peace, always trying to make humanity live in harmony.
And we also want balance; in our personal lives we seek union with our partner, we look for self-help groups, organizations, parties, in our eagerness to find a place where we can belong. But in this search, we try to get everything to fit into the beliefs and opinions we already have. When someone disagrees with us, we avoid them. We try to surround ourselves with people who support our ideas, even if they are negative people. We flutter around in an endless search to find what makes us feel at home. But the mind will never feel satisfied. Wherever you go, you will be dissatisfied. Wherever you look, there will be separation, divergence, duality. Sometimes we isolate ourselves, in our desperate need to convince ourselves and the world that we are right. We seek unity, but in reality, we are creating more separation and distancing ourselves even more from the rest of humanity with our prejudices and opinions, instead of uniting in love.
The irony is: we are all exactly the same, only our perception is different. We are all looking for love no matter where we are in the world. We all seek to return home, we have all suffered our own self-abandonment, we have all suffered self-abuse and we all believe, deep down, that we are unworthy of love, wearing multiple masks that cover our discontent. Like actors on stage, everyone is playing their part in this great opera called life, each one playing his or her own role. Some are knights in shining armour while others are mysterious villains, but the truth is that our essence, our greatness is always love. Love-consciousness is touched by the hearts of people and always admires greatness, regardless of the person’s opinion. It is moved by the passion of visionaries with different and even opposing paths in life. It is not their views that are admired, but the truth in their hearts.
That’s what life is about. It’s about being true to your own heart, not about having a good reason for what you do. There will always be some who agree with you and others who do not. Unconditional love is the only thing we all have in common, the only thing that unites us. When we anchor ourselves in unconditional love, the power of the intellect, its separation and its ideas, become a distant echo. Our differences are no longer important. They are just threads of different shades, adding color to the rich tapestry of life. United by love-consciousness, we merge as one, returning to the experience of pure unconditional love in everything, without the contrasts of duality.
