"The root cause of all of these is the illusion of separation. "We are organically one" is the "The Earth is round" of our time..."
Facebook thread follows:
: The whole world, deep down, realises that nothing is more important than human and social evolution in harmony with our environment. We know that it is crucial that we advance integrated solutions that address the root causes of greed, intolerance, injustice, inequality, distress and conflict, and that we do that through co-operation and co-creation rather than coca-cola! ;-) Tony Praill
: Consider a world inspired to fulfil each person's unique potential to liberate mutual completeness in abundant variety. A world with an effortless, entire awareness that our varied needs to flower co-operate to harvest the fruits of truth, harmony, peace and bounteous, beautiful creativity. Now is the time to consider, intend and co-create this magnificent world....this is why we are here! ((( ♥ )))Joe Simmons
: The root cause of all of these is the illusion of separation. "We are organically one" is the "The Earth is round" of our time.
"Leading-edge information and growing consciousness bring us a step beyond the planting of seeds. They root the plants of freedom, love, abundance, wholeness and empowerment. For example, it took over 200 years to believe the Earth is round, but when we finally believed it, our experience of life changed quickly and dramatically. Up next, we are One, organically. We are exiting the period that will be known as 'The Age of Insanity - the time when we believed the illusion of separation was true'. We will be shocked and brought to our knees from the remorse of what we had done during the profound unconsciousness of that time. We will be moved, relieved and grateful for the abundance, peace and wholeness of remembering that we are One and Love" ~ Joe Simmons
: Idealism is the new reality! ;-) Joe Simmons
: Our being one is as much of an ideal as is the Earth being round. We just can't see it because we believe that the illusion of separation must disappear before we can realize our oneness. We can embrace the illusion of separation the same way we can embrace the illusion that a movie is made from individual still frames playing in sequence, which we cannot detect with our human tools for perception. The Earth is round, and we are One, organically. This is absolute - regardless of our ability to recognize it. ♥ Tony Praill
: True, though as you say, the recognition is the 'warp- speed' for human evolution. :-) John Halderman
: Yes, before any human descriptions and explanations about life, we were One . . . ARE ONE! We allow ourselves to go down the specific rabbit holes loosing sight of our Oneness. :))) Joe Simmons
: Tony, the good news is that our thwarting or resisting the realization of our oneness, for however many years we may do it, does not change that our believing that the illusion of separation is true is what makes all strife possible. Name it... starvation, homelessness, poverty, war, greed, intolerance, inequality, distress and conflict are all symptoms of our believing and operating as if we are separate.
Knowing that we are One, whenever we act inconsistently to that, we are operating insanely. Hence, we have dis-ease. This is true no matter what we think or no matter how we might rationalize our unwillingness (for whatever reasons) to surrender.
Until we do, we will remain in "The Age of Insanity, the time when we, the humans, believe that the illusion of separation is true." The love that comes from realizing our oneness is the cure for all of it. Actually, it's the only cure. Any other study or exploration for answers is futile and foolish, insane.
More good news... As more of us entertain Oneness consciousness we are building momentum, like a snowball, to reach a critical mass of awareness. Eventually, we will get it like a light going on in our heads. We will say, "What the? Of course, we are one! What the hell were we thinking?" ♥ John Halderman
: agree Joe, seeing our Oneness is the way. When we know our Oneness we stop acting in selfish fearful ways seeking to fill the void created by the perceived separation. We then act in unity seeing how what we do benefits the whole. :)
The Facebook Screen Shot...
, performing artist, holistic arts life coach, friend and partner in the endeavors to remember that we are all one and love asked me what I meant by “Namaste”
in closings. Elynn enjoys closing her communications with “time and love”. I share a perspective on that here, as well.
Namaste is loaded because of the connotations that come with it. The backdrop of it is that we are one, organically. So, imagine all the yumminess that comes from there.
To me, "Namaste" means my higher self recognizes and honors your higher self. Remembering that we are one, including all things, by engaging, we remind each other that we are rich and resplendent. We celebrate that in the present moment. Loving is really the only way to be about it because we are the love. Imagine we are one and love - One Love. Albeit redundant, I say "Lovingly Namaste" as a meditation tuning into the love that we are. Just thinking about it right now makes me giggle and cry at the same time.
Namaste represents gratitude, as well, such that I am grateful for the beautiful and magnificent flavors of light that flow through you; and I thank you for sharing them with me. I can only experience them through you, and given that we are one, our sharing fulfills me and makes me whole. Perhaps, that is what Elynn means by "time." The time is the space in which we share the gifts of love that we are. Since all of us are one and love, we can say that "time" is the space of being pummeled by the awesomeness of us.
Eventually, expressions or greetings/salutations like "Namaste" will be embedded in us and be expressed beyond words by our way of being together. We will be so present and connected that we will be reeking, dwelling, reveling and celebrating in it always and all ways.
Thank you for the opportunity to look and remember.

A friend on Facebook asked, “Who really discovered America, metaphysically speaking?”
From an historical perspective, Christopher Columbus did not discover America.
Metaphysically speaking, all things always are and always have been. We conjured the context of having discovered a thing and believing it's true that we've discovered it in order to have a point of contrast. The contrasts provide a place for us to bite into the life or to engage in it. It's the only way because all things are perceivable only by virtue of their comparison to something else.
Metaphysically, we are literally one All-that-is, without points of separation. If this is true, when we discover anything, we are merely remembering a part of ourselves that we've forgotten or are newly entertaining. The parts of us include all things - even rocks and "their" particulates. Rocks are living conscious parts of us, albeit we have difficulty realizing it because we associate life and living with a heart, brain, lungs, blood-flow, etc. Our puny selves have opinions about what constitutes life or being.
Life and consciousness occur energetically. It's about energy vibration. The forms are merely constellations of vibrations upon vibrations reflecting upon layers and layers of perceptions amongst all the parts of us. When I say "all the parts of us", they include the quarks and whatever other minute particulates we've conjured to try to figure out of what we're made. Even the particles are made-up - conjured. Additionally, each of all the conjured parts are perceiving and reflecting those perceptions about each other.
Here's the thing... All the stuff is made-up. We are living in a product of our creativity and imagination. Even the experiences of a physical domain
, life and death, etc. are the result of perceptions layered upon perceptions ad infinitum that illuminate a physical experience. "Physical" is merely a label we apply to categories of experiences, perceptions, thoughts, etc., which we call true when they are not. The stuff is real only to the extent that we actually experience it. We really do experience this stuff; however, the manifestations are illusions. They are real, but they are not true.
So, who discovered America? Nobody. There is no America or USA… There is only one us – US, WE, ONE. We made up a context called “Discovered America” for fun.
By the way, this Oneness thing that we are is also called Love or God. We are love. Why the contrasts? Because, we cannot experience ourselves (Love) without something to which to compare ourselves. Remember? We need the stuff that is not love or the resistance to love, in order to recognize love. We’re here in contexts of physical-ness to access experiences of ourselves that are only available in this domain. The physical domains provide all the contrast we need and desire to re-discover who and what we are. We are one and love.
Thanks for taking the time to explore these perspectives. I like to try them on like a coat and ask myself, “If this is true, what else might be true?”

The Heart of Oneness
Thanks for checking out this blog post. This one was created and expressed through the part of us called "Joe Simmons". This aspect of us is a metaphysical life coach who is inclined to have transformational conversations that help us to remember who we are and remind us about our purpose in life in order to have freedom to live the life we desire.
You might ask, "What's this funny talk all about, Joe, 'this aspect of us is a metaphysical life coach,' etc.? Have you lost it? "
Well, I'm trying an experiment. As a human race, we're beginning to experience and get glimpses of what it means to be One. This is about the precept of our being One, made of infinite and unique aspects and forms. One type of form that we perceive and live through is the flesh of the human body. For example, I'm a body-aspect of us called, "Joe Simmons".
I know - more funny talk! It's kinda hard to avoid. Consider this... If we believe that we are One, how might our languaging change? In other words, how might the manner of our speaking and relating to each other shift to reflect that we are One? How might we realize the benefits of living that we are One.
Here's the experiment. To become real and to live as being one dynamic conscious energy individuated into the magnificent and unique forms, I believe a source of self-actualizing our Oneness is to speak consistently with our being One in our language and style of communicating and relating to each other. Let's get our feet wet.
To be clear, one of our greatest and most important tools to recognize who and what we are is the illusion of separateness. We need it because all perceivable things exist by virtue of their comparison to something else. This is absolute. Therefore, we need the illusion of separation to recognize, feel, and thereby, be able to celebrate our Oneness. There's freedom in it.
I invite you to join us in the exploration. Watch and listen to us speak and express ourselves through all the lives and mouths of us. As a starting point, I ask, "What is the life like for you from the perspective that we experience as we flow through the perceptions that your life brings?"
By the way, I love you!

I came across the following Epicurus (341–270 B.C.) quote in a Facebook comment:
"Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?" ~ Epicurus
First, I want to be clear that I am exploring and sharing a perspective in the context of the entire quote, not just, "Why do we call God, God?" I am sharing a perspective based on why we call him God withstanding the conditions that Epicurus presents.Perhaps we call him God because we feel like adding meaning to things and labeling things. Ironically, the labeling is insidious, e.g. we're predisposed to perceive a category of "separate" or "third party", hence we refer to and apply a “He” when there is none. Maybe we simply exist in a being or a becoming state of is-ness that is God. Hence, there is just an is state. I know that may sound strange. Of course, there is only one is. Imagine we might decide to distinguish, categorize, define, judge, label and count is’s. Actually, that’s what we do. Finally, let's consider that the label “evil” and the descriptors, e.g. “malevolent” are fictitious. We apply the labels “good”, “bad”, etc. to our opinions of a thing and call it true, when it is not. In this case, therefore, we hold the fabrication labeled “He” accountable to the opinions and the labels that we attach to them. Uh-oh, then who is accountable? I declare that I am accountable with the collective I's (is) that we are.Thanks for the opportunity to look!Lovingly Namaste,

Get a taste of the conversations you'll have with your metaphysical life coach. Join us in a discussion about the nature of life, including the purpose and tools we've put in place to live it fully to realize the spiciness and richness of it all. We acknowledge the metaphysical parts of us that have the most critical effect on the quality of our lives.
The Purpose of Life...
It is revealed. The secret is out about the purpose of life. There's no mystery in it except by the ego to conjure "mystery" to distract us from remembering who we are.
The most fundamental precept to our being and purpose is that we are One, organically, indeed --intentionally individuated (manifested "separately" into the physical, flesh) to be in a playing field to remember (re-member) who we are.
It's a game we elect. Love is all there is. All else is an illusion, resistence to Love/Source/God/Universal energy...
As creators, we designed the resistence in it to provide contrast needed to distinguish/identify/experience the Love that we are. Without contrast, we can't know.
To experience the greatness of Light, we need darkness. To experience joy we must have sadness, resignation, anger, anxiety, etc... the opposite in order recognize and experience the joy that is Love. We need a comparison.... relativity.
It's how conflicts are cracks through which Love flows.
