Global Day of Oneness

Four years ago, a team of humanitarians chose October 24th as a day to celebrate the truth that all of life is connected by the genes we inherit, the air we breathe, and the consciousness we share. My first Goodness To Go blog post a few days ago began with a quote by Albert Einstein that recognized the unified energy of creation. Global Oneness Day spreads the message that we are one global family and its intent is to empower us to create cultures of peace and prosperity, creativity and love.

How are we to live so that humanity collaborates to thrive, not merely competing to survive? If peace is every step and begins in the human heart, what can you do today to acknowledge and celebrate our true inter-connectedness? Social media can be a tremendous tool that shares information and supports the mobilization of our goodness to go. At the same time, remember to nourish the “real-world” human connectivity that is only possible face-to-face as we engage in meaningful conversations from the depths of our hearts and minds. What is a kind and creative conversation that you could initiate in the next three days? Who might you thank for their support in your life? I appreciate being on the great adventure of the human journey with you!

We’re All in This Together- Chapter 1

The inestimable Albert Einstein observed, “A human being is part of the whole called by us “universe.”…We experience ourselves…as something separate from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affections for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”

This October full moon marks the initiation of the Goodness To Go blog. Many thanks for giving yourself time to embark on this journey of self-inquiry as we explore themes woven throughout my recently published Handbook for Humanitarians. You may want to start a new journal or computer file to record your contemplations and any questions that arise. Consider reflecting on the task that Einstein gives us: How could you widen your circle of compassion? How could you free yourself from the prison of dualism that makes you believe that you’re separate from the whole called universe?
