It is true that we came forward into this world to endeavour to experience ourselves as a part of the whole of creation, which was seemingly separate from God. We did this to see how that felt. Of course in truth it is not possible to separate ourselves from that One, but when the veil of forgetfulness was drawn, the Ego, the part of us which perpetrates such truths, convinced us to believe that it was. One of the methods used for this purpose was to judge our fellow men. Of course in this way we put a metaphorical wedge between who we are and who they are. This is all illusion, for we can never be separate from the whole, so why not look upon others through the eyes of Love, and in that way grow in understanding of their needs and desires, for they simply reflect our own
When you close your eyes in meditation, allowing the cares of the day to settle around you into insignificance, seeing your fellow man in his true light, it is as if you could see the stars and the moon mirrored in your own being. This is the wonder of life, and when we come to understand this, our hearts will become fully illumined with Love.
Today is the first day of Autumn in the southern hemisphere, and the trees are about to show us how lovely it is to let go that which we no longer need. As the leaves, stained with their Autumn hues flutter to the ground, providing eventual food for the earth, we learn that we too provide such jewels in the form of thoughts and actions, which can also be gathered up by our brothers and sisters of Light to expand this world they live in.
