Our Concept Of Life And The Oneness We Are All Part Of

Oneness of Mankind Tree

Oneness TreeWe can discuss all sorts of theories and concepts forever, which we probably will, but will this serve to help us treat each other better in the world? Our different beliefs and descriptions are all based on human perceptions. As we have looked at the evidence we notice around us in life, we attempt to describe it, and use these descriptions to define life, what it is and how it works.

The thing is, as one group of people get together on one concept, agree and further define it from their perspective, somewhere else is another group doing the same thing with a slightly different take on it all. Each explanation and belief being built through individual and group perceptions, and interpretations, which is all a human can do.

So in the world we have many of these groups and theories. The thing is, they each have claimed their own description as a firm belief in their minds, each just as fervent that theirs is the correct concept, because it makes sense to them and the group they are joined with. Then, since we are each so sure of our selves based on the fine points that each see as the proof or substantiation of their definition, that we argue amongst one another vying for title of the right description, ‘The Truth.’

What is happening is we are buried in the arguments over the details, terms and interpretations. We have become lost in the forests of our own making. We are so sure of ourselves that division is created in our thought. Because human logic seems to postulate that if one is right then the other must be wrong, we want to claim our own as the correct version of course. Since our conscious existence is based on our perceptions, we see a difference with other people, claim it, think it and act accordingly.

So here we are in the world separating ourselves from others based on individual perceptions and concepts of the same thing, the source of life. Of course we each have the ‘facts’ to back it up, we each have ‘chapter and verse’, science and belief to prove it. But all are human created, through perception and interpretation.

It’s time to take a broader view of the evidence, all of it. Step away from the minutia of the details that separate and look for the commonality in all human perception. As we have been looking at the same thing, although from different angles, it seems to me that there must be common threads in our various perceptions. (describing an elephant blindfolded)

The one concept that stands out is the idea that we are all of one source, whatever that is. Whatever created one group of people created all others as well, along with everything else we know of. The bigger question is, does it really matter what we call it, how we describe it? Is it not more useful to look at the evidence pointing to how we are all part of one existence? and basically the happiest, feel the best as people? For this is what humans are seeking overall.

What if we can come to a place where we can each see that our own explanation is one of many, and that this is ok? Right now, there are millions of people who do not believe the way you do, does that affect your personal belief? What if there is a common thread in all religions, philosophies and science that allows us to see how others can believe as they do without feeling threatened in our belief?

I know there are many who will feel that I am being far too simplistic in my approach, I understand. I hope that in time they can come to see thatHands on globe world unity

simplicity is what will cut through all the focus on the individual finite differences that separate all people. We so easily get wrapped up in the details we can’t see the forest through the trees. Many great minds have noted the power of simplicity throughout history, it helps us get to the point.

Through my studies I see that the major religions each speak of one source, one creator. And science now is finding that there is one energy that everything is made up of. This all points to one source for everything, just different descriptions. The theory I propose we look to is that we are all, as is everything, part of one system, one source. We can call this God, Allah, Source, energy or by other terms based on the various descriptions, but it is one thing. I know this may be familiar and logical to you or it may seem unfamiliar depending on your current beliefs.

By embracing this concept of one source, I feel that we can come to see the oneness of all people once we are able to more understand each perspective. I feel that each will find in their beliefs that this is a common thread. By breaking down the walls of defense for our individual beliefs and showing others that we are open to the unity of mankind, we can come to honor and respect each other as one.

We can see each other as leaves on the same tree of life, where there is no reason to fight amongst ourselves, that different perspective of the same source are part of the variance of life. Here, through this site I intend to assist with this building and living a unity consciousness. To help us move beyond the fear and selfishness that has plagued mankind for so long. To move into operating our lives through love and unity.

This task is not one to put on to others. It’s not a wait for the other person to make the first move. History is evidence that does not work, it is the responsibility of each of us, right now to be the change we want in the world. Be the leader, the instigator of unity and others will follow. There are many who speak of a change coming to humanity, I feel this is it. I see an end to our negative based consciousness, allowing us to move into the positive energy of oneness.

It’s time to move beyond focusing on our differences and to look for our commonalities. Deep inside we want the same things, we are all of the same source, it’s time to think and act like it. I invite you to come along on this consciousness elevating experience for the sake of mankind.

We are one.

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
