Day 35: The Experience of Connectedness




"Identification with your mind creates an opaque screen of concepts, labels, images, words, judgments, and definitions that blocks all true relationship. It comes between you and yourself, between you and your fellow man and woman, between you and nature, between you and God. It is this screen of thought that creates the illusion of separateness, the illusion that there is you and a totally separate "other." You then forget the essential fact that, underneath the level of physical appearances and separate forms, you are one with all that is." 
Eckhart Tolle



I forgive myself that I have not accepted and allowed myself to realize that it is not enough to merely 'not identify myself with' judgments, words, concepts, labels, definitions, images, and to only identify myself with 'our connectedness', because if I do not define how I will live within our connectedness in a way where I will do what is best for all and bring about a world that supports all life Equal, then I leave myself open to be defined by the 'experience' of connectedness - and in just being an 'experience' - I have no actual principle that I can apply in every moment to support all Life practically, because I am just 'enjoying the experience' and will based my entire time on Earth on 'having the experience of connectedness' -- instead of basing my time on Earth on Principled Living that will produce a world that is best for all life

I forgive myself that I have not accepted and allowed myself to realize that the relationships between human and human, human and nature, human and animal, are based on definitions that we have accepted subconsciously and unconsciously through being taught by parents, teachers, the media, religion from birth -- and that the outcome and experience of our relationships is always based on our accepted definitions -- thus it is not enough to stop identifying with definitions, because if I am not investigating all accepted definitions within my own mind and within humanity as a whole then I am not seeing, realizing, understanding, becoming aware of the actual source origin points of conflict and separation and ego in myself and the world -- wherein, having an experience of connectedness alone does not mean the end of ego, because to understand ego I have to understand all definitions I and all of humanity have come to accept as the basis of our relationships where Ego is the self interest of valuing  individual experience as the basis of living instead of what is best for all life equal being valued as the basis of living

I forgive myself that I have not accepted and allowed myself to realize that it is easy to recognize the oneness / interconnectedness of all things - but it is another thing to take responsibility AS all things, to ensure that no part of Self As All exists within abusive relationships based on definitions that serve self interest -- thus I forgive myself that I have not accepted and allowed myself to realize that it is not enough to teach that we are all connected, because in only recognizing our connectedness, we leave all the definitions we have accepted in our subconscious and unconscious minds un investigated as programming we are not actually aware of, which will then direct us through feelings, responses, experiences -- instead of us standing as the directive principle of ourselves in all ways - and that ourselves as Directive Principle must be aligned in all ways with what is Best for All to ensure that we do not produce any experience that results in distraction from what is best for all

I forgive myself that I have not accepted and allowed myself to realize that it is not to stop identifying / defining self with the picture presentation of the forms that are here, and to then see self as only the invisible connectedness of all things -- because the forms that are here are shaped, formed from the same Equal substance as the Physical, which is a visible, touchable reality in which beings are currently experiencing horrific atrocities of physical suffering -- and if I am not aligning my physical living with actions to bring about a physical world in which all life in form as the Physical is supported -- then I am just in separation through seeing myself only as the invisible connectedness of all things -- instead of seeing and realizing that we are connected not just invisibly, but visibly through and as the Physical Reality

I forgive myself that I have not accepted and allowed myself to realize that in aligning myself only with an experience of invisible connectedness to all things, and using the 'non identification with form' as a way to release myself from responsibility for what is going on in the physical so I can sit back in the NOW and feel blissful and peaceful, I am still accepting and allowing those who physically abuse life for self interest as profit, to continue their abuse -- because I am not applying myself in the Physical Reality to make sure that All that Is Here is a place that is Best for All where no abuse is allowed

I forgive myself that I have not accepted and allowed myself to realize that I have not actually investigated my relationship to MONEY -- because if I had, then I would realize that it is because I have money that I have the ability to sit back and feel at peace in an invisible experience of connectedness

I forgive myself that I have not accepted and allowed myself to realize that experiencing our connectedness is not the solution to end poverty and starvation, because to end such problems requires physical understanding of the logistics of supporting all life on Earth - and if I have no such understanding, then those who have the understanding of the physical logistics of how to abuse life for profit, will continue to do so unchecked because I have no physical ability to take action to stop the abuse if all that I am is an experience of invisible connectedness that can only talk about how to see self as an experience of invisible connectedness

I commit myself to, through a process of writing, self honesty and self forgiveness, uncover, realize, see, and remove ALL definitions from my subconscious and unconscious mind that I have, in unawareness from birth, accepted as myself, to make sure that there exists in me no definition that is not based on what is best for all life -- and thus I commit myself to re-define all the words I live in ways that will lay the foundation for Principled action that is best for all

I commit myself to stop seeing myself as an invisible connectedness with 'all that is', and to realize in every moment that I am connected physically with all all life forms and that thus when one child starves - it is me starving

I commit myself to show how an experience of connectedness with all that is, is not the solution to end poverty and starvation -- as with an actual new world system that does not allow the abuse of life for profit, we can end starvation and poverty in one lifetime -- whereas, waiting for everyone to 'recognize our connectedness' is not a solution, it is just an experience, and contains no practical principle that can be applied in moving self physically to take responsibility for all life on Earth

I commit myself to become the power of physical self movement in every moment of breath that moves as principle that considers what is best for all life
