There is Only One

All people are connected to each other; all people are connected to other life forms; animals are connected to earth; plants and trees are connected to the moon and stars; everything is energy and all is connected on an energy web which encompasses and makes up the universe.
When someone loses a limb they often speak of what medical professionals call phantom sensations. They can still feel the missing physical limb. The reason is, our energy bodies look, act and operate just like the physical body. In fact our spirit bodies are what give us our physical appearance. If you remove a part of the physical body, the spirit body remains in tact. If you look at 5, 10 or even 100 skeletons, they all look the same, but the people they belong to all looked very different when inhabited by their spirits. I know the scientific reasoning behind this, explaining it with fat deposits, muscular form and skin texture. This would only partially explain the extreme differences in appearance. I have seen my own energy body and have seen many spirit bodies, of human, animal, even plants; energy bodies give us our physical appearance.
Our energy bodies connect us to all other energy in the universe. We are meant to connect on a spiritual level to other energies in the universe. Mental, emotional, physical and spiritual pain result when we ignore or reject the intended connection to other energy. I realize many people fear what they don’t understand or cannot explain. And many times people feel more in control when they can contain or even kill something or someone who is so different that understanding or even mere acceptance is outside their ability. This doesn’t solve the problem, it just keeps the energy out of balance and our eyes blind to the truth.
And the truth is:
I have lived my entire life hearing people speak of Heaven as above, Hell as below, as the Spirit world being somewhere other than here. I have heard the stories of other planes of existence or shamans and healers who walk in multiple worlds. The truth is this: there is only one world, one universe, one plane of existence. There is no division between the spirits and us. They are around us, with us, operating in THE universe simultaneously with us. Too many are blinded by fear, ignorance, or simply refusing to see with their hearts. The physical body is merely a car your spirit drives for a time until you are ready, have learned the lessons you need to learn or have helped the ones you are supposed to help. Death is not real, we don’t journey to some far away place, our connection to the energy and to the spirits may change in form and matter, but we are, always have been and always will be, connected to all spirits, Great Spirit; the only difference between them and us; what makes it seem as though they are in some other world; is perception.

Long Time Coming

Warning: the contents of this blog may be offensive to some main-stream religious zealots.
As most of you are aware, my life partner is a Native American man and that my “SPIRITUAL” views are eclectic and include many practices from many different spiritual views. I know there is a Supreme Creator, I know Jesus, angels, prophets, rainbow warriors, animal spirit guides, gods, goddesses, and the ability to connect to the energy of plants, earth, space are all real and, well, you get the point.
I have been agonizing over the division of religious practices, views and ideologies. I have in me an entire book on the subject, which I’m sure will be written in the near future. But let’s start with the blatant idiocy that started me on a rant this morning.
I read a review of the new Lone Ranger movie. But it wasn’t really a review of the movie, it was a bigoted, narrow-minded, shameful rhetoric on Tonto’s religion. Pompous, arrogant, white people came to this county, nearly starved to death, and would have died had it not been for the kindness of the Native American people. To be clear, the Native Americans didn’t become violent towards the whites until the whites began treating the Natives as savage, second class citizens. But, I digress.
If Christians (Christ ians) were truly living what Jesus taught, they would be acting completely different, and they would be treating others completely different. I have a degree from a Seminary, I have studied the Jewish – Christian beginnings. Christians say they believe that “God” created everything. Last time I checked, everything included, Native Americans, Celts, Pagans, Muslims, trees, flowers, earth, air, water, fire, animals, space, stars, suns, moons, I could on, but again I’m sure you get the picture. If “God” created everything, and we are to honor God for creating all these things, doesn’t that mean we should respect other cultures? Other creatures? Other spiritual views? From where I stand on this subject, Christians are the ones being disrespectful (I’m comfortable saying this – I know Jesus is very real, I also know what he taught and while he may love and forgive people for their narrow-mindedness, he’s probably still often disappointed in the callous way people treat each other over details of spiritual practice). And, I personally believe I’m being far more accepting of the Divine Creator, and all other spirits by respecting all spiritual points of view and practices and incorporating them into my life on a daily basis.
And as for the Lone Ranger movie, Tonto (I hate that name, very disrespectful), is portrayed as a very spiritual Native, there are some very authentic Native practices shown in the movie, and just for the record, the Native people who consulted with the producers and actors during the filming of the movie were so impressed with Johnny Depp and his respect of them, they made him one of them (I would have said this part more eloquently, but too many out there wouldn’t understand the significance of the Native Rituals, so I’m not even going to bother touching on these), however, don’t judge what you don’t know and don’t assume how another practices their spirituality is wrong just because you aren’t familiar with it or it’s origins. This is disrespectful to the Divine Creator who made everything, including these people (and their practices) that you are judging as wrong.
