You are whole. You’re not a bunch of disparate, scattered, crazy pieces. You’re one perfect unity. Always, inherently, no matter what. Through every life experience, you remain this perfect whole. No matter the appearance that experience takes, you remain a perfect whole. The difference in life between peace, contentment, and joy on the one hand; and suffering, confusion, and pain on the other hand, lies in where you place your locus of identity, in whether or not you’re aware of the perfect unity that you already are. Living life through this understanding is to consciously reside in a seamless field of loving knowingness. When coming at life from this felt truth, one naturally and joyfully extends love, understanding, and compassion toward others. One’s natural reaction upon witnessing the suffering that comes from not knowing oneself is to extend loving arms in hopes of rectifying the disconnection. Love desires more love. Pain desires more pain. True mystics welcome others to join them in the loving embrace of truth. Those who spread pain do so as a natural reaction to their own pain borne of confusion. Every life holds within it the potential to align with truth and reside in love. This journey can be one of a single step or a thousand miles. It can be a permanent destination, a site of pilgrimage, or a distant memory. But the door eternally remains open for all.
