Remembering We Are One World by Stephen Thomson

“Every person who draws the breath of life affects the mental and moral atmosphere of the world.” H.P. Blavatsky

At the end of a period of meditation, I slowly opened my eyes and saw my friend Everett, who had passed away three years earlier, standing in front of me.  Everett seemed so present – so alive – in that moment, and his vital presence remained as I came into full consciousness. Realizing what I was seeing, I was overcome by a whole range of emotions, the most intense of these being feelings of love and joy at being once again in the presence of my beloved friend.

At the end of my meditation, as the seconds ticked by, Everett turned from me and moved across the room. As he moved, a transparent barrier grew between the two of us, like the iris closing on a camera lens. I could still see Everett as he turned and faced me, yet we were now separated by the invisible film. Then I understood the purpose of Everett’s visit and the   message for me. A credible messenger for me from the other side, he came to answer some of my deepest questions.

He communicated that one birth and one death impacts the entire planet. We are all energy beings who contribute to the energy mass on the earth. Each exit from the earth, with the energy we embody while alive, impacts the very farthest reaches of the earth. Everett communicated that even his life – a simple life, unremarkable in many ways – shifted the content of earth’s energy, creating lasting changes in people’s lives across the planet. To have an intellectual understanding of this law is easy. The real work begins when we live in this consciousness.

Older now, I am grateful for a life of so many rich experiences that any perceived differences between myself and others have all but evaporated. To separate myself from others is no longer my natural impulse.

At the time of this experience, I had been studying and meditating on two spiritual topics. The first was about what happens when we die. Second, I wanted an answer to the question, what effect does my energy create by being present on the earth plane?

My thinking on what comes after death, from a spiritual perspective, diverged from my Christian education and rested on thoughts that were more loving and less scary.

As for the energetic effect, this is beyond any need or satisfaction based on my ego. Central to all spiritual teachings is the law that we are all one world and one people. If my energy is, in fact, this law in action, I want to become ever more aware of my role and the impact I am creating in the world around me.

And then Everett was gone from my life again.

Meditation, Spirituality & Brain Changes with Dr. Andrew Newberg

You’ve probably heard of Dr. Andrew Newberg’s work on meditation, even if you didn’t realize it — he’s the scientist who did the ground breaking studies of Tibetan monks meditating that showed how dramatically it changed the brain . He went on to study nuns praying and Sikhs chanting and found similar brain states as those of meditation. His ground breaking work led to the development of a new field of science called “neurotheology,” which studies the relationship between the brain and religious experience.

The Time for Revolution is Now by Craig Kolavo

As I sat on the floor in my closet, unpacking boxes of dusty journals and notebooks I’d collected over the past 20+ years, the task at hand seemed overwhelming. How do I organize all of these life experiences into a coherent story? How do I put these events into a clear, chronological order for my kids to understand? You see, I had no plans to write a book. My original intention for writing was simple and somewhat selfish. I was hoping to explain to my children some of the discoveries I’ve made on this crazy adventure of life. Maybe all parents feel this way at some point. Why should my kids have to experience the same struggles, pain, and suffering I’ve been through?

Spiritual Experiences in Lucid Dreams by Clare R. Johnson, author of Llewellyn’s Complete Book of Lucid Dreaming

In lucid dreams, we are aware that we are dreaming, and with this awareness, we can guide and shape the dream, or go with the flow of events. We may find ourselves flying over magnificent vistas, breathing underwater, transforming into an eagle, hugging a much missed deceased friend, or simply soaking up the astonishingly real imagery and sensations of being conscious in a dream world. When we engage lucidly with our dreams, we illuminate them from within.

Moved By Mountains

| by Cheryl Shainmark

Moved By Mountains – Several years ago I dreamed I flew as a hawk, high above seared mountains, gazing down on granite soil marked only by occasional stunted evergreens. In my dream I soared and twisted, riding the air currents until I actually felt dizzy and then, as soon as I thought, “This is too much!” I woke up in my bed. I remembered the details vividly, though I had never seen those vistas in real life. Last week I saw the mountains of my dreams, that is, the dry stretch of the Rockies where the rain does not fall.

Excerpt from Raindrops of Love by Eileen Workman

Beloved, I am Life. And I invite you, in this perfect moment, to realize that we—you and I—are one Spirit flowing within, and throughout, the infinite realm of matter, and that our unity has always and ever been so. Although for a while you forgot that we were united, that did not mean we were ever separated. It just rendered you briefly insensible to our eternal connection.
