Day 9 – The Belonging of Oneness

Sep 2, 2011

It is so powerful knowing that I am here for a purpose. Many purposes. Every person I touch, touches me as I them, and we meet for a reason. Whether it’s a nod or a smile, or a brief “good morning” .. it’s all belonging to the Oneness.

The Belonging of Oneness

“I am a living member of the great family of all Souls.”

William Ellery Channing

“It’s the most precious thing . . . to know absolutely where you belong.”

Tessie Naranjo

“The hunger to belong is not merely a desire to be attached to something. It is rather sensing that great transformation and discovery become possible when belonging is sheltered and true.”

John O’Donohue



We all want to belong. Deep in our core, we share a universal need to feel welcomed and loved. Every being on the planet shares this trait—no matter how deeply buried or disguised it may be. And at its root, belonging is about being seen and received and coming home.

Allow yourself to connect with your own desire to love and be loved. Breathe into the center of your longing and allow it to grow. Imagine that every person in your life—everyone in your community, town, city, state, and country—shares the same intensity and depth of longing. Allow this awareness to expand to include the entire world, and connect your longing to the longing of the world. This is a fundamental aspect of Oneness, your longing to be recognized and called home.

As you move through the day, gently hold this awareness of your innate belonging. Ground yourself in the truth that you’re here on purpose. Feel the comfort, the kinship, and the passion that come from knowing you belong to the earth, and you’re here to share your love with the world.

Notice the places and people with whom you feel a natural belonging as well as a sense of separation. Allow your love and compassion to encircle these experiences. Let it grow and expand.

How can you invite others to come home? Stay alert and watch for opportunities to extend the belonging of Oneness to your friends, families, co-workers, and even to people you don’t know yet. Be inclusive and invite everyone. Open yourself, making the invisible web of life visible. Demonstrate the miracle of our interconnectedness. Meet this universal need by actively shining your light on the darkness of isolation and separation. Create a circle where no one is excluded, where all are invited to participate in the belonging of Oneness. Feel the love in your heart burst forth as you create a sense of deep belonging in, to, and with the world.


I AM included as an expression of Life, embraced as an expression of love.

I AM here, I AM One, I AM home. We are here, we are One, we are home.


I'm Me!
