Are We Getting Closer To Global Oneness? by John Cali

The Dalai Lama said “Whether one is rich or poor, educated or illiterate, religious or non-believing, man or woman, black, white, or brown, we are all the same. Physically, emotionally, and mentally, we are all equal. We all share basic needs for food, shelter, safety, and love. We all aspire to happiness and we all shun suffering. Each of us has hopes, worries, fears, and dreams. Each of us wants the best for our family and loved ones. We all experience pain when we suffer loss and joy when we achieve what we seek. On this fundamental level, religion, ethnicity, culture, and language make no difference.”

As you probably know, October 24—just 2 days ago was Global Oneness Day. This is a new celebration, started in 2010, to celebrate the fact we truly are all one on this planet—a fact many of us have yet to acknowledge and accept.

The leader of the Roman Catholic Church, Pope Francis, said in his recent trip to Brazil, “The culture of selfishness and individualism that often prevails in our society is not what builds up and leads to a more habitable world: it is the culture of solidarity that does so. The other cannot be seen as a ‘rival’ or a ‘statistic’ he urged, but must be recognized instead as a brother or sister.”

I personally believe we, the human race, are closer to achieving oneness than ever before in our history. We have a way to go yet. But we’re getting there.

As my spirit guides, and many others human and spirit, are saying, this is an era of spiritual awakening, a heightened consciousness we can all feel.

Maybe this “impossible dream” of oneness is not so impossible after all.

    The thing is we are one. Not just the people but the fabric of all that is manifest (and of course the unmanifest) . Our idea of, belief in, our separation and individuality is what blocks the mind knowing this. It is approachable from so many sources – scientific quantum physics, spiritual traditions of many sources but the big one is to let ourselves quiet down to feel /know our deepest inner truth. Our thought processes can be taken to an intellectual view that it is indeed what we are; however each deeper, intuitive experience of this comes with a great deal of the good stuff – love flickers in the heart, compassion and understanding toward the suffering, ignorance and stumbling we all manage to do outshines out righteousness and adversarial attitude.

    Thanks all.

    It seems to me that I have a much better time with people who grasp that we are connected – whether we talk about anything meaningful or just simply interact. I can imagine such a world and in part because in my own world (which is all anyone has to go on) i meet more people who get it than don’t. This was not always the case … of course, the change could be in me – but than again isn’t that the way it has to work .. on an individual basis.

    Beachdrifter is right that we are not in the same place, nor would we want to be – but the world is better the more we connect with others – and not awful when we don’t. We don’t need to meet or connect with people in order to be accepting of them – recognizing our oneness and connection is a valuable piece in the puzzle of peace and acceptance. And since it is something each of us has to do for ourselves – there isn’t a rush ,,,

    but once people get it – it can’t be taken away – therefore we have to be getting closer to the recognition of oneness and the world of our dreams… because people are clearly getting it who weren’t before.

    The photographer and the people who participated in the photo shoots and video will never be the same … in a good way.

    Thanks, John – for another provocative article and opportunity for discussion.

      Thanks very much, Dan.

      My experience mirrors yours — it’s easier to be with those folks who have that same spiritual awareness we do. But I also find it fun and fulfilling to be with those who are just now waking up. As with you, this was not always true for me. I avoided those folks (including some of my family) who did not see things the way I did. I now see how unkind and “unspiritual” that was.

      Thanks again, Dan, for your wise observations and comments.

    The idea of Oneness has been around for thousands of years. Is it getting more widespread today? I don’t know if there’s a way to really determine that, as Law of Attraction is doing its job now as it has always done, meaning the “parts” of the world you have access to reflect where you yourself are.

    If you asked me personally, it certainly looks like it’s everywhere. If you asked other members of my family, they’d say “Oneness what?”

    But what I think is a lot harder to understand than Oneness, is the benefit that contrast (meaning the balance of wanted and unwanted things on this planet) provides for the evolution of all consciousness.

    I think that Global Oneness has never been, and will never the goal of this time-space reality. We don’t come forth in the way that we do to all realize that.

    We come for the new ideas, and the joy that comes from lining up with those. And the more contrast there is, the more potential for joyous expansion of ideas there is.

    Don’t get me wrong, I love the idea of Oneness, and what it means. How wonderful it is to find out about it. I just think simultaneous knowledge among all humans neither has been the goal, nor should it ever be.

    Source knows Oneness, Source is Oneness, so at that level, everyone already knows. And yet, we come forth in the way that we do…but not to realize what we already know, but to move beyond it.

    Would everyone knowing it mean more sameness in thought? Definitely, if you ask me. And I don’t think that is ever seen as wanted, from our Source perspective…

      Thanks very much, beachdrifter, for your thoughtful comments. I don’t think oneness means we all have to be the same. This would be a boring world if we were! 🙂 Diversity is the spice of life.

    Yes, we are getting closer. What we can really do is envision that oneness as complete, see the compassion, sharing, caring, equality, love and light as what the Golden Earth IS. Do the meditation everyday with heartfelt, focused love. Then, be that love within.
