When I was a very young child, a puzzling question popped into my mind from out of the blue. It was a question that I pondered for decades and was the one that started me on my quest to answer the eternal ‘Who am I’ and ‘why am I here’ questions.
While in the midst of playing with a friend from kindergarten one day, I found myself poking my little finger at her small body, and then back at my own asking, “Who is that in there? And who is this in here?” I continued the conversation in my head for a bit longer and more questions came to mind. Why do you live with your family, and why do I live with mine? Why are you you, and why am I me? Heavy questions for a five-year old to ponder.
On my spiritual journey decades later, I received answers to my questions. There is no “you” and there is no “me” because in Truth, we are all One joined in spirit and connected by the same Divine Source.
We are born into different life scenarios designed to provide opportunities for us to move toward our highest possible evolution. We arrive on the planet wrapped in individual bodies appearing to be separate, but beneath the wrappings of so many beautiful hues, the bottom line is that while on this earth, you are you, and I am me, but in Truth, we are We, and We are One.
In closing, a final thought about forgiveness comes to mind. Whether it is yourself you forgive or another, forgiving one is the same as forgiving all for indeed, Oneness is all encompassing.
Blessings to One and All, dear brothers and sisters.
