At One with Your Surroundings
Look around you. Do it now. What do you see? What are you seeing for the first time?
Are you just looking, or are you truly seeing?
Being at one with your surroundings enables you to be at peace wherever you are. This peace and oneness, is not at all about where you find yourself; it is about how you find your Self.
Most people feel uncomfortable in new clothes, new surroundings and with new people.
When you are truly at One with yourself, you can be at One in your surroundings.
Now, look around again. Take in a deep breath, close your eyes and open them.
What do you see?
What new thing can you appreciate? Notice the amount of work that went into something. Try to imagine the people who did the work. See the thing in its raw form. Imagine the sand and the tree that a window or floor board came from. See the factory workers where the paint on the walls was mixed and made.
See through the exterior of your electronic device to its inner workings. See it as it was being made.
Take in a deep breath and see yourself connected to your room and the people who harvested, made and assembled the items in it.
You are already connected to the world. You are never alone. You are a part of everything and everything is a part of you.
Wherever you are, you are already connected.
We are no degrees of separation from anything or anyone because there is no separation.
You are One because we already are.
Be you, be well, be ONE.
