Healing our Self and our World
People new to Humanity’s Team often ask about the nature of the problem our movement addresses and what we do to address it: “Why was the movement created in the first place?” they ask, and: “How does Humanity’s Team heal the problem?”
Let’s take a moment to consider these questions because they are important. This all has to do with illusion…the illusion that we are separate from God and each other, the illusion that duality exists, and the illusion that we are born into the world with “lack” and “limitation”.
Let’s start with the first illusion that we are all separate. Our bodies are separate so humanity, God and life must be separate. This belief is held despite observations made by ancient and contemporary spiritual and religious leaders, scientists and philosophers that: “We are all One”.
I’ll share two quotes addressing this illusion but there are many others.
Albert Einstein shares: “A human being is part of a whole, called by us-universe-a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest…a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection 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 nature in its beauty.”
The Apostle Paul shares: “For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bound or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit for the body is not one member, but many. If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not the body; is it therefore not of the body? And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?” 1 COR. 12-16.
As a side note, when you put together the quotes we’ve identified from contemporary and ancient leaders, the evidence: “We are all One” is overwhelming. We will be putting together a video shortly so people can see for themselves. It is quite moving to see all the material together in one place.
The next illusion is that duality exists, that our essence has “good” and “bad” parts and the “bad” parts have to do with a “dark” force oppositional to God in the universe.
The first illusion, the illusion of separation, puts us on a slippery slope because if we are separate from God and a “bad” energy exists in the universe, this “bad” Source energy can be found in parts of the universe, including in our own being.
On the other hand, if We Are All One, and the One essence is God, then there is nowhere for oppositional or “bad” Source energy to hide. If the body of God is goodness, then it follows that all the parts of God, all the “cells”, all of humanity and all people, are also good.
The concept that We Are All One is central to seeing how we heal illusions or false beliefs.
Let’s consider next the illusion that we “lack” the basic essentials of life and must forge, scrap and scrape together these essential things and the companion illusion that we are “limited” in most ways. As this illusion goes, we are limited to physical means of manifesting things. We are also limited to living one life.
In these illusions there is no place for the creative tools of thought, word and deed to manifest responses to lack and limitation, for example real abundance and real power in our lives. Despite all the forms of evidence to the contrary, our direct experiences, scientific data, historical evidence, etc., a big “nope” to our powerful creative abilities.
An elementary review of how things work whereby our thoughts create our words, our words create our actions, and our actions create our life lived somehow is lost. The whole metaphysical process using the tools of creation: thought, word and deed to co-create with God/Universe, is lost or ignored.
Here is where Humanity’s Team comes in.
We invite individuals and the collective to move beyond beliefs in separation, duality, lack and limitation to beliefs in Wholeness/Oneness, Love as our essential nature, Fullness/living in abundance, and creative/powerful living unbounded by limitation of any kind.
Someone new to these concepts will want to read and carefully consider all of the points of view but I believe the illusions we are discussing here are pretty “thin”. If we are thoughtful and considerate when we look at this and really consider the wisdom shared by leaders from the fields of science, philosophy, religion, and spirituality not to mention our own experience, we are led to a place of reason. Reason is not inside of the illusion; it resides outside and is in “plain view”.
When we come to a place where we see: We are all One, our essence is love, and in our natural state we are abundant and creative/powerful, everything is changed. Our life is transformed. We become “awake”, conscious and connected with God/Universe, our Source.
We like to say in the movement: “when we heal the root system on the tree, we heal the whole tree”. The root system is our concept of Self. When we see who we really are, not our body, but rather all parts of God, universe, humanity and life, our behaviors and actions naturally shift to nurture our larger Self. We cannot possibly ignore humanitarian and ecological issues because there is no “other” in the room, on the planet or in the Universe. There is only One of us, not speaking here in metaphor but as a precise description of reality. If we are healthy, we see ourselves as a “cell” in a larger body of God/Universe. This is our new Self.
This is why we narrowly focus. It all has to do with our “identification”. Who we identify ourselves to be has deep implications.
When we see we are truly One, that our essence is Love/Light and connected with the Source of all Love/Light, then we create Love/Light for all in the world to see. When we do this together and in unison it can be blinding in a powerful, effective and fun way, and it transforms all those we are in contact with and ultimately the whole world.
This is what we are doing in this lifetime, in our generation, so children inherit a new world, a joyful, compassionate and sustainable world.
If you are moved by our work and have not done so already, join with us! Humanity’s Team is on the move and each person counts!
May God/Universe express gloriously through you.
All my love,
