Yes, I have learned and know, that all is contained within. I’ve attempted for a long time to grasp this fact of oneness. Intellectually, this realization taught me that I am never alone, but always all-one. This is a Universal Law. However, emotionally at times, I struggle with this concept. It takes inner strength to see the Truth within.
This inner strength of truly knowing the Divine Presence is already within each and every one of us, will eternally provide continuous strength and support, and I will always feel loved and cared for.
But the main thing to remember is that I have myself, my loving, perfect and already complete self. And this all-embracing ‘self’ is the source I can draw from when I feel less than, abandoned or lonely. This inner strength, once I know and trust my own Spirit, will guide and protect me from any and all emotional and mental pain.
When I feel alone, fighting the battle by myself, always carrying the burden – I know in my heart that this sense of heaviness is self-inflicted. So, how can I change this daily load to a more positive and lighthearted experience? Can I let go of this self-inflicted weight and worrisome attitude? What causes this intense sense of separation and loneliness?
Is it that I separate myself from God, this Universal power that sustains all? Does this sense of separation—which is only an illusion, as it is impossible to separate from your life source—leave me feeling empty and in a constant struggle?
So many questions are yearning for answers. I believe I can change my sense to a lighter outlook by letting go and by knowing that all is good and for a good purpose. ‘Nothing, absolutely nothing happens in God’s world by mistake’, says the Acceptance Prayer. I must continue to have faith in the Allness of Good, there is no other way. I must start from this premise of goodness being the underlying principle of all life. Only then can I let go of what seems burdensome and oppressive.
“I think - and that is all that I AM. My awareness of self - is all that I AM. I AM that I AM.”
