You As A Leaf As One


You are to the Whole of Life as a leaf is to the Tree …

A unique individual yet connected and part of the Whole.

Suppose you were a leaf on a tree hating the leaf next to you, and you then spent a lot of your time and energy thinking, worrying, and talking about this hatred, how has all that expended effort served the whole of the tree …which is You?

And suppose as that leaf, you hated the other leaf enough that you justified eliminating it, and you were able to kill that leaf, how has that behavior served the whole tree…which is You?

When you KNOW you are connected to the Whole of Life, this is your I AM

… not just your collected experiences, through which you can perceive separation, yet never are!

The only difference between you and the leaf is, you can alter your perception of life and self, and act as if this is who you are.

About John Halderman
I've been studying about life, how it works and what we can do with it for over 30 years. This has included many religions, philosophies, spirituality, psychology and sciences along with my own personal discovery and growth. Through all this I have come to feel we are all of one source. We have many varied descriptions of this source and our role within it, with a thread of commonality running through them all connecting our oneness. I feel that our putting more attention to this oneness is what will bring us together as one operating force of love and understanding. It is my purpose to help oneness and unity to become our functional reality. John Halderman
