A New Earth
I have just begun reading Eckhart Tolle's book : A New Earth.
On page 4 he speaks of what it takes to sense the divine essence within one's self as well as all life. He writes "once there is a certain degree of Presence, of still and alert attention in human beings' perceptions, they can sense the divine life essence, the one indwelling consciousness or spirit in every creature, every life-form, recognize it as one with their own essence and so love it as themselves." He goes on to say that until this happens we mostly identify with our physical and psychological form.
I feel excited in hearing that huge numbers of people are reading this book due to Oprah. If people are considering the possibilities of what he is saying; practicing alert presence and considering that the divine is in all life, I do indeed believe that life on earth will be different. Different in a wonderful way. I have always trusted and felt that within our hearts we are connected to the divine. When we get still and feel this, a new clarity arises. A clarity that assists us to live in harmony within ourselves and with life on earth. As we feel the glory of the divine in all life we are nurtured, as well as enlivened. Indeed our relationship with all life will be new.
Astrologer, Melissa Stratton (firstname.lastname@example.org )writes the following quotes in her (Pisces) March 2008 newsletter:
"You are me, I am you, and we are all together." Perhaps George Harrison, born with Sun in Pisces, wrote that lyric.
Albert Einstein, one of the most famous Sun in Pisces natives says it well too, "Our separation from each other is an optical illusion of consciousness."
And listen to this quote from another Pisces, the lyrical, poet/writer Anais Nin, "If all of us acted in unison as I act individually there would be no wars and no poverty. I have made myself personally responsible for the fate of every human being who has come my way."
As we are in the midst of the month of pisces, perhaps the universal oneness will begin to be recognized and felt.
