Where would One go if they believed that where ever they went, they would have a family to care for them there? What would One do if they understood that their actions were needed, and were for the benefit of many? How would One love, if they knew their love would be infinitely reciprocated? These questions can be answered through observing the lives of those who have dedicated their selves to the belief of a One world family.

Undoubtedly there will be moments in life when One force meets another. On an any and every level, it feels like worlds are crashing together. They are. Each One of us holds the enormity of a universe within ourselves.
Our beliefs, our culture, our family history, concepts of love and hate are continents that give our personal planets shape and form. Our experiences, a sea through which our mass moves, morphs and shifts. Our breath, the very life essence that everything inhales and exhales.
With experience comes the great responsibility of sharing the wealth One has sought out, intentionally or not, along One’s journey. Travel is treasure gained. The lessons learned far from home are each a gem of wisdom to impart with others when travel paths cross. A conversation shared between travelers feels as crucial as knowing the currency exchange, concierge, or nearest toilet and market.
It is an ever-deepening understanding that those who traverse great distance between where their full-grown feet stand, and where their infant feet fumbled, hold a responsibility to inspire and inform. Wether or not One exercises this responsibility will determine where the road in life will take them.
To shimmer with vibrancy, One must polish themselves. To bring forth the most beautiful aspects of something requires effort and thoughtful consideration. Doing this mindfully, One thinks not only of the personal reward they will experience for themselves, but will encounter brilliance three-fold when sharing how they shine with others. One must be vibrant in their endeavor towards enlightenment. Along the path, One will get smudged, feel dirty, or messed from the many obstacles and twisted, rough parts of the journey. Not to fret.
All One must do is dust off and remember the bends behind them for the ways they have learned to stay vibrant on the road to enlightenment, and simply say to One’s self,
“I’ve been there.”
Wind sweeps, swirls, picks up, puts down, and carries with it the silent, strong wishes of the hopeful. Soft bellows skim a dusty floor to uncover brilliance hiding under filth. Sweeping is a passing, a feeling, a whimsical invisible world in constant motion. It’s a reminder that the swift rise and fall of our emotions are like that of a whispering breeze. All know the feel of gusts, none of us can hold on to it, and none of us see it coming.
Bring full attention to that which no hand can grasp. Do so, and in a sweeping moment you will fly free to where ever the One blows.
Silence has solace to offer. Confessions heard by no other ear are the most sincere. Living in an age where constant stimuli bombards our senses, it is a challenge to appreciate what substance there is to be found in quietude. But, when revered, silence offers the same sort of blessed energy as the warm summer sun.
To the great mother, father, sister, brother, child spirit within
I honor this day, the opportunity to live, laugh, learn, and love
I honor the blessing of a one world family with whom I have you to share and find universal truth
I honor the sun, the moon, the stars
I honor air, earth, water, fire, and ether from which we are all made
May I bring peace and harmony to all living and non-living things in this world and in others
I honor the space inside that is the same in all other beings
I honor the space inside that is of love, light, peace, and of truth
I honor the space inside in which the whole universe dwells
When I am in that space, and all others are in that space
We are a oneness
