"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. :)

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?”

Occasionally, someone will ask what I mean by, "Life is rich and spicy." I was asked today, so I figured it's probably a good time to explain - particularly during the holiday season when there's a gamut of experiences ranging from scarcity and loneliness to abundance and celebration. Imagine, all of it is included in the richness and spiciness.
When I say, "life is rich and spicy” I’m talking about the experience of life. I mean I am here to be present to and experience as much of life as I can. Life feels good and tastes good, metaphorically. The rich part is that there is so much to notice and savor - abundance. The spicy part is that life is dynamic like spices - the ups, downs, happy times, sad times, cheers and tears. Like spices, we enjoy some and dislike others. Sometimes, the combination of spices that we'd rather avoid creates wonderful flavors that become our favorites.
Therefore, we may enjoy the combinations, and we notice the good times by having the bad times to which to compare. We need and want it all. Without all of it, we can't recognize any of it because all things are perceivable and able to be experienced by virtue of their comparison to something else. This is absolute.
When we reach out to connect and participate, we demonstrate that life is full of gifts and opportunities to celebrate. Each interaction is a gift of acknowledgment and an example that we are important and chosen to share. Our attention to each other is a gift. There is no shortage of that when we recognize it and allow it. Hence, life is full of hidden and perusable
pieces of Heaven. We may not recognize it as that, necessarily; however, there is Heaven on Earth. It looks and feels like the experiences we create with our gifts of attention and sharing.
Our ability to share ideas and sentiments in this post is another example. This chance to be connected and engaged is rich and spicy!
Please join me in the celebration...

Illustrative Conglomerate. Click image for animation.
Try this on like a coat. The experience of there being a physical plane is an illusion. It is real only to the extent that we apply the label "physical plane" to categorize a domain of illusions that we perceive and entertain. In other words, illusions are real; however, they distract us from what is true.To illustrate, let's call this image a conglomerate - just one of infinitely existing conglomerates. Click it to see the animation. The phenomena of the physical plane are illusions formed by infinitely created and configured conglomerates of perceptions layered upon perceptions. The sources of each are intentions or thoughts, which set off unique conglomerates ad infinitum. An example of a new conglomerate is a thought or opinion about the shapes reflected on the tube. It's how thoughts become "things."
The perceptions are not limited to those "originated" by the constellations of conglomerates called human beings, animals, birds, fish, bugs, etc. The senses, e.g., sight, taste, smell, touch and hearing are experience-able through and are products of the layered and co-mingled interpretations entertained by the integrated constellations of conglomerates and their parts. All the parts of all things, animate, inanimate, matter and non-matter are interpreting and co-creating simultaneously, including the parts of the conglomerates themselves.
Therefore, we can surmise that the content of the physical plane is an illusion, albeit real to the extent that we actually experience it. Imagine the perceiver behind the illusions is the only non-illusionary entity except for our inability to realize it. Ironically, we are illusive to ourselves - lurking in the silence behind the noise; we play with the looking glasses. So amused, submersed and distracted by what we perceive, we believe the illusions are true and forget who and what we are.We are One and Love, the Co-Creators.Lovingly Namaste,
