I play too much, me thinks.. :)
Well, me don’t think, THEY do…
The Spontaneity of Oneness
“Only in spontaneity can we be who we truly are.”
— John McLaughlin
“Play is the only way the highest intelligence of humankind can unfold.”
— Joseph Chilton Pearce
“I still get wildly enthusiastic about little things. . . . I play with leaves. I skip down the street and run against the wind.”
— Leo F. Buscaglia
Tuning in to the reality of Oneness connects you to wholeness, innocence, and to the natural rhythm of life. From this, deep trust and surrender are born. The outward expression manifests as childlike joy and freedom in the now. In the spontaneity of Oneness, you become moved, animated, inspired, and illuminated by life. You are connected to the bubbling fountain, the effervescent Source; and your life becomes an expression of beauty, play, and flow. In the deeply rooted knowing of your Oneness, you have faith and are able to let go of your ego. Fear and resistance dissolve, and you’re free to swim in the warm and inviting sea of life. Play, laughter, fun, and creativity are all expressions of the spontaneity of Oneness.
Give yourself permission to live in this mind-set today. Go beyond the routine of your scheduled tasks and habitual actions, and explore the realm of childlike wonder. Feel and follow the fluidity of inspiration and impulse, allowing it to sweep you away. Let go and be alive within this free-flowing and continuous state of clarity and joy. Be fully present and open to whatever arrives in each moment. In this pure, vibrating consciousness, all sense of separation will dissolve. It’s the simple, essential truth of Divine love . . . the spontaneity of Oneness. Relax in total immersion in the Divine, and follow the invitation of your Soul.
One of the signs of a life sourced in the spontaneity of Oneness is experiencing Soul grandeur. Yet you may wonder how you can attain this in your modern life—in a culture that often cuts you off from communion with your natural mysticism and sense of wonder. French philosopher Gaston Bachelard, the author of The Poetics of Space, asserts that three factors are required for living a life of spontaneity and passion: intensity, intimacy, and immensity. Allow these qualities to become your guides today as the universe sweeps you away in its natural rhythm and flow.
— Intensity. St. Thomas Aquinas said that zeal comes from an intense experience of the beauty of things. How would you describe these “intense experiences” of your life? Do you feel like you’re being pulled toward something unfamiliar that will perhaps vanquish the illusion of boredom once and for all? What fans your inner flame? Go directly to that experience right now! Don’t delay or distract yourself from the intensity of life that beckons you, for it is here that you’ll come face-to-face with a living Oneness that will bathe you in radiance and bring you to life.
— Intimacy. Andrew Harvey said, “In every tradition, the Presence is hungry to reveal itself and to enter into ecstatic and intimate communion with its own creation.” God exerts a continuous attraction on your heart, pulling you, in love, toward God. Today, allow yourself to experience the joyful ecstasy of being gently drawn to your Eternal Beloved. Pay attention to what your heart is longing to experience and express. What will bring you into intimate and ecstatic communion with yourself, with life, with others, and with God? Let yourself be drawn like a moth to the flame to whatever your heart and Soul are longing to experience. Dare to be intimate with yourself, with others, and with God in the spontaneity of Oneness.
— Immensity. Psalm 139 states: “Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there. If I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.” Allow yourself to fall in love with the stars, the planets, and with all Life today. Fall in love with the immensity of life and return to elemental awe! Feel your connection to the primordial sense of being, knowing that you were birthed from the cosmos. You are wondrously and magnificently made—Imago Dei—in the image and likeness of God. Allow yourself to follow what naturally connects you to the awe-inspiring majesty of life, of the world, and the entire universe. Be willing to be swept away in the spontaneity of Oneness.
I AM living a life of Soul grandeur, a life full of intensity, intimacy, and immensity.
I AM flowing with the spontaneity of Oneness.
