As we move in the "New Age" it's about some becoming aware on a heightened level of the separation between human ego and divine love of oneness with your spirit essence and the universal pure love. It's not that the humanness is bad — you live in the body, mind and heart — but your identity is not the body.
Human separation from your spiritual essence is a form of control that comes out of fear, insecurity, limitations and negativity when you allow the ego humanness to control your life. The stronger the human ego control, coming in the forms of resistance, force, hate, etc., the greater the level of struggle creating negative influences. Two things could happen: you create behavioral patterns in the form of addictions or you surrender and put your attention on faith and trust. The latter gets you connected to God and your spiritual essence, allowing the pattern to break and freedom to shine forth.
Habits and beliefs that are not in alignment with your spirit being attract lessons to help you become smarter spiritually. When you have challenges in life and you perceive it from a problems perspective, human defense kicks in and the flight, fight, protection mechanism goes into effect, creating drama. Drama decreases energy vibration, attracting a vibrational match with people and situations.
For example, imagine the body, mind and heart covered with layers of clothing representing beliefs. These beliefs consist of ones that serve you and ones that don't. Some you're aware of and others you're not. Every day you meet others who wear similar clothes. Some you resonate with and others irritate you. The ones that irritate you bring up memories. If you focus on these thoughts, they create stories from the past. As you continue to focus on these stories, emotional discomfort comes up, bringing up drama resulting in your body feeling heavy and tired.
Now imagine you decide to peel off that layer of clothes (the past memory) with love and peace rather than judging it. Your thoughts become peaceful, you feel emotional freedom and your body feels lighter with greater vitality. You will become aware of more of these layers and peel the layers that you feel are not serving you. Now you're wearing undergarments, which represent your core beliefs. If you take them off, you are nude. That represents your spirit being, pure and loving.
When you unravel enough of the beliefs that are not serving you, you come to a place of connecting to your spirit and less to the ego control. Through awareness of the impact of embedded beliefs and habits that no longer serve, you will have greater ability to transform them. Through transformation comes greater awareness and connection, with your spirit being directing.
One way to create a spiritual oneness from a place of universal love is to focus on gratitude, which provides a greater connection to God, experiencing greater positive influences.
If you experience any form of drama, surrender the thoughts and emotions from the story and immediately put your attention on gratitude and love. This creates a stronger connection to your spirit essence, the universal love-God, and experience positive influences.
Human ego control shows off in a manner that attempts to force or make things happen. If you surrender the control by embracing and accepting what is in the now and flow with your spirit being, you see the world with a different set of eyes. You make the journey from human consciousness to spiritual oneness.
