As each sun rises, I become more amazed at this journey. How it started and just after 2 short weeks where it stands today. I am doing amazing. Finished my first elixirs and all is going beautifully. Each morning I get up and ride a stationary bike in my room for close to an hour, then I shower. The rest of the day I am either emailing, visiting with nurses, causing some sort of hilarious dissertation which will soon follow, meeting with docs (they do like to do their probing), eating which I have become champion. During all this time, I do quiet myself and journal. As I have been ever so amazing by this internal shift, I feel like there are so many aspects that I want to share. Being a yoga teacher certainly offers the opportunity to do so through this blog. I want this to take on whatever form it needs to serve, for me, for those I love, for others who just like the ideas and humor. Many of you have emailed me asking how to join. go to http://www.hollysloveolution.wordpress.com then go to the bottom right and click follow. I would love you to share any information you feel goes hand with the topic discussed or any experiences you may have to share to make stronger the conscious shift. I would love this to take on a life of its own and share the journey of oneness not just over a health challenge, but to live to our full capacity as loving human beings that are forever connected.
Namaste – The Divine Oneness!
At the end of many yoga classes, teachers will seal each practice with the wildly popular “Namaste” which means “the light source in me bows to the light source in you.” This represents the belief that there is a Divine being or source within each of us, and it is this divine source that we should solely reflect in each other.
Oneness is a concept that is very simple, but hard to put into practice. When we look into the eyes of our friends, family, we often see a mirror of difference and it would be safe to say for many a great divide of judgment and sarcasm. However, with this simple intention it draws you back to the basic truth that we all ALL ONE. Created by the same divinity, no matter what form or rituals may follow that belief. In seeing this oneness, it is rather normal that we would go in the complete opposite direction to see the differences first before we can understand and complete the full circle. Our ego will have us believe, we KNOW how this person should live their life, what they do wrong, and set up by our standards, we have the answers to make it better. This is brought forward by the great judgment of the ego, your individual “I” maker that sets you up just right. Allowing just enough confidence with empathy to make you believe you are right, but then just one step away, within that reflection comes forgiveness. You see, we can only love and forgive, sharing in each person’s journey, setting down the torch of judgment, embracing the experience as a learning lesson of our own. It is an intense cycle, discussed in detail in “a New Earth” by Eckhart Tolle. Understanding the ego is a challenge and may take a lifetime. However, breaking through moments of sweetness to see the truth with a light that warms your entire soul and the connection to Gods guidance is proof you are on the right track. Then the moment may be gone, but all you need is that one breath because it is that breath that will wave you to the next light.
In coming full circle, Oneness may be described on certain days, such as 9/11, where we completely go beyond all form, race, ethnicity, and just LOVE. We love beyond the special relationships, such as our mothers, fathers, family, and friends. We just love because it is how we are guided to live. Can you imagine a world where we see the same love for our mother as a stranger? This is the love that breaks down the walls of hatred, judgment, and embraces universal love. This is the love Jesus spoke of in biblical times. When we are willing to set free of our boundaries and just see the goodness in others as reflected in ourselves we will have =
I cannot say enough about how blessed I am to have all the love and support pouring in daily. It has taught me that my own judgments are really just a weakness I see in myself. Through oneness I am choosing to set aside my mirror of opinion and just be a part of each persons journey as you are being a part of mine. Being the light I see in your reflection. This strength comes when we build each other up in love and support, only allowing for this brilliant line to shine out!!
Much love and light!
