We are One

‎"As we expand from the narrow viewpoint that the priorities in life are material and sensory wealth, to a greater view of life with spiritual purpose, then not only do we change in lifestyle habits and relationships, but we see the world differently. If we no longer think we were dropped somehow by accident onto this planet to get all we can, then we see that is also true of all other people. If we are here for a greater purpose, then so are all five billion plus inhabitants of the planet. Our sense of community changes. Our family grows. We realize we are part of a global community, all brothers and sisters on a long journey, though on different paths. No longer can we do work that might harm other people, or harm the world in which we all live. If we have jobs that pollute the environment, or create difficulties for other people, we will feel obliged to find other work. 

At the same time we no longer feel threatened by the differences in other people. If all five billion people on the planet are here for a higher spiritual purpose, then the differences in race, color, and beliefs are ultimately superficial. These differences, along with everything else happening on the planet, are serving the higher spiritual purpose. Race, color, and creed are part of the different paths toward the same goal. The fear that these varieties of race, color, and creed once held, that somehow people who were different were a threat to what is owned, disappear." - Swami Rama in Sacred Journey

A Matter of Choice « Independent Unity

A Matter of Choice « Independent Unity:

'via Blog this'
I thought you might find this blog post by Unity Minister Doug Bottorff of interest

With the December 21, 2012 end of the Mayan calendar rapidly approaching, I thought it would be appropriate to share some thoughts on this and other end of world/end of age scenarios that have persisted through the ages.
It is my firm belief that the hope many carry for a coming messiah, whether it be in the form of a person, a shift in human consciousness, a change in planetary alignments, or some type of divine intervention, stems from a simple lack of spiritual understanding. For thousands of years people have been reporting the mystical experience, an indicator that all the elements that make up this experience have been present since the dawn of recorded history. We can safely assume this has been going on long before people began writing about it. If we think of humankind and the changes that have occurred since we began recording our history, we find that nothing about the mystical experience and the way it is reported has changed. Language has changed, the metaphors used to describe the mystical experience have changed, but the experience itself has not. The faculty of mind needed to experience our spiritual source are now in place and have always been in place. Likewise, the presence of God is here in its fullness, has always been here in its fullness, and will always be here in its fullness.........Read more here
