Why and How to Stop Focusing on Differences

Focusing on Differences Creates Disharmony or Joy?

The penchant for human beings to discover how unalike they are, how distinct they are - it all has to do with ego. We have now managed to "create" how different we all are. And in that difference comes disharmony.

Where we need to put the energy now is in how similar we are, how much we all have that is similar that can be shared. How alike we all are, in terms of joy and pain and suffering and elation. And we need to share that information now.

How To Make Progress...

There is no progress to be made by celebrating our differences. We've done that.

We are now in a state of critical mass. We are so isolated, with our various distinct individualities, that we can wreak havoc on someone else and hope or think that we gain from it. I'm talking about terrorism; I'm talking about hate crimes . . . anything of that ilk. That somehow if we are able to eliminate a reflection of ourselves, we are going to become more whole. It's a very twisted viewpoint.

So that's what we need to recognize, that we are all, in an umbilical sense, connected to the same force. Like reconnecting strings. Because we've lost that connection, that understanding that each individual's greatness is relied upon by the other person's greatness, by recognizing their greatness, not their inability. What this simply comes down to is to recognize that every creature has greatness inherent in them. And the suffering of one is the suffering of all mankind.

The Illusion of Relative Happiness

Focusing on Differences Creates Disharmony Instead of JoyThere is a way for everyone to be joyful and not to be dependent upon what I refer to as relative happiness. That happiness has to do with whether or not you have more or less than another individual in terms of material goods, attractiveness, or all those strata that have been created. It's a very destructive energy, relative happiness.

The absolute happiness that comes from within, that's eternal. It isn't at the expense of everyone else. When people allow themselves to re-experience that, they recognize the joy that's in all.

In many people's illusion, prosperity is what's going to allow them to finance happiness somewhere. That's what prosperity means to them. "Now I can be happy, because now I can buy the house that's going to bring me happiness." I know many lonely people with very big houses.

Experiencing and Becoming Joy

Let's instead talk about experiencing joy. We were put on this planet to experience joy. To understand the beauty, the depth, the excitement of the life experience. To thoroughly embody it, to become joyful in it, and by doing so, become compassionate with other people. Bottom line.

The trouble is that we're looking in the wrong places for what we think is joy, and we've bought into other concepts in which we think joy is experienced. Or we distrust the joy we're experiencing as not being valid and not being of social worth. So the bottom line here is: joy is something that exists, can happen within you, and can be a part of the light in every second of your being if you choose to live that way. And when you experience it, everything else will be taken care of. You do not have to worry.

You must allow yourself to trust your life force and not second-guess it. Trust your instinct. It is a sum total of your entire existence. It is a vast library of information. We blind ourselves to it when we shut down our access to our library. It's incorporating all of that existence, all that work, into this single moment in time. And breathing through it and allowing that funnel through to create the kind of force that will alter existence... that will change lives.
