Day 20 – The Desire of Oneness

Sep 13, 2011

Pursue my passion.
Oh YES!
That’s what I do and have been doing.
I get called selfish sometimes, because of it.. But it’s so important…

I saw leaves today.. floating off a tree…
It was so gorgeous!
That is my passion. The weather. The life. The trees!

Now I just need a good Thunderstorm.

HAIL THOR! :)

The Desire of Oneness

“Bliss becomes blissful with practice. In our own bliss the desire, desirer and process of desiring are united—they are one. Desire is fulfilled at its source.”
— Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

“People who renounce desires
often turn, suddenly,
into hypocrites!”
— Rumi (translated by Coleman Barks)

“Desire is the very essence of man.”
— Benedict de Spinoza

Trust your innate desires, sourced in the presence of Oneness, to bring you into profound connection with yourself, others, and your Divine purpose. Your authentic desire is one of your most precious and vital life-force energies; it’s essential in order to achieve lasting fulfillment and well-being. Allowing yourself to trust and follow your heartfelt wishes is a powerful practice of Oneness. Everything proceeds from this state, and no single action or thing is more worthy than another. As you follow your inner wisdom, you play an essential part in creating a world that benefits everyone, that blesses all
Enter into the resonant field of the desire of Oneness and know for certain that it exists in you as it does in all things. In Oneness, you’ll discover a universality of desire and enter into its radiant and luminous space. In fact, cosmologist and scientist Brian Swimme tells us: “By pursuing your allurements, you help bind the universe together. The unity of the world rests on the pursuit of passion.” Are you willing to pursue your passion in order to manifest the energy of Oneness in your life and the world?

If your answer is yes, then the willingness to be wholly available to life is all that’s necessary to enter into this practice. What passions will you discover? Where will life take you as you follow the energy of desire in every moment?

By following your longings, you’ll find that true presence to life offers you incomparable happiness. The simplest things, such as drinking a hot cup of tea, relaxing in a warm bath, and staring into a crisp blue sky can bring you tremendous delight as long as you’re present to it. In other words, you can discover absolute joy simply by being aware of and fully embracing the ordinary experiences of life. You’ll become free from needing intense experiences in order to generate desire and pleasure, and you’ll be enlivened and enthused by pure existence and your relationship to it in each moment.

Nothing and no one can take away the desire of Oneness and the beauty, peace, and bliss it offers. It is yours as you become present to it. Your full presence and receptivity to desire creates a powerful medicine that will begin healing the schism between your body and mind, your ego and Soul.

Today’s practice requires nothing more than your desire to be wholly available to life. What amazing things will you discover amid the seemingly mundane activities in your life today? If you decide to practice the desire of Oneness 60 times a day for 15 seconds, you’ll spend 15 minutes simply being. For today, 5 minutes will suffice.

Become present, feeling the energy of desire and allowing yourself to receive the blessings each moment carries as it unfolds. Find the delight and joy in simply recognizing this awareness. Feel the Divine radiance of life bringing you into a deeper relationship with yourself, your essential nature. Breathe and be in relationship to all things: the clothes you’re wearing, the food you’re eating, the sidewalk you’re walking on, the hand you’re shaking, the music you’re listening to, and so forth. Love each moment through the desire of Oneness.

Whenever you feel disconnected and experience a schism of the body and mind, the Soul and the ego, return to presence and feel the desire of Oneness unite and restore you. For today, give yourself permission to experience the excitement and allure of the desire of Oneness. Spread your passion for a life of Oneness!
