When I started getting serious about yoga, one of the first things I was taught was the concept of non-separation--not physical separation like we are experiencing now, though I think it can be very unhealthy and healthy at the same time, but separation from others in a spiritual sense. We are oneness. So how does this play out when people's morals, values and ideals do not align with ours? Simply said, we let each person have their experience to the best of our ability without judgement or prejudice.
I think it is safe to say that together we have a collective vision. We all want the world to be a safe, stable, and loving place. World peace is a tall order. :) We are not going to accomplish that by fighting with each other about who is right and who is wrong. That is very clear. We are going to accomplish our common goal with unity. Being unified when someone shares a different view than your own is as simple as allowing someone their belief and their process--not beating them over the head with your ideals. You might be proving a point but damaging the collective in the process.
Our primary focus and our strongest defense is the building of our own energy field and the ability to transmit that without words. We are better when our focus is on what we want. Us for us in unity.
Our collective conscious is extremely powerful. It is my belief that the plethora of influences available to us creates our consciousness and shape our choices. Starting with our family and then the company we keep, the books we read, the schools and churches we attend, the media we consume, the prayers we pray and what we do with our meditation, our motives and our intentions. These are all things we should deeply consider.
I had a hard time in the beginning of my sequestering as I felt like the rug had been pulled out from underneath me. Maybe you felt that, too. For me, it was very difficult to enjoy being home, even though it's something I have always craved. Today I thought to myself, "You should enjoy this more. " I finally allowed the moment to possess the future I want.
We are all in this together. We are powerful. Our collective energy is what will move us forward. We got this! Our nation's unity and our ability to operate and possess love for ourselves and each other has never been so important!
