8-25-2021 Embracing Our Oneness

“The suffering I am witnessing is both emotional and mystical, personal and impersonal. I see it in the eyes of people, in their inability to name the reason they feel so imprisoned in their depressions. 

This is the suffering of our collective transformation, a soul-pain shared. It is untreatable but not unreachable. You are weaving us together, like it or not. 

If we cannot consciously embrace our oneness, we will bleed ourselves together. It is astonishing how we prefer to suffer apart rather than love together. 

But the sufferings we are enduring today have one thing in common: they are the result of feeling separate from the whole. Whether we are enduring depression, loss, or survival-level fear, this feeling of separation now envelops so many of us. 

I know aloneness is Your way of beckoning us to meet You in prayer, to inevitably find You. 

In the breakdown will come a breakthrough. 

Soon, very soon, a calm will arrive. Fortitude will drop in, like manna from heaven, assuring us we will somehow endure. 

Inevitably we will wonder about the source of that sudden calmness, so needed in that exact moment. And we will consider, perhaps for the first time, the mystical truth that we are so carefully watched over, even in the midst of the darkest passages of the human journey.”
