CESSATION OF INNER KILLING FIELDS
« Do not be ambitious and subject yourself
to exhausting rivalries.
Choose an activity where you have plenty of space,
or are perhaps even alone,
for no one will be able to prevent you from growing.
If you go and plant yourself beside a great tree,
it will complain you are encroaching on its territory.
into the territory of a wild animal?
Be like a bird instead:
it has a tiny little body, fragile and light, with a tiny beak,
but it also has wings to fly freely in the air.
the only thing it asks for from the Creator is its song, joy and freedom of movement.
they do not want to clear a path through the jungle,
but fly every day in the sky to bring back peace,
light and joy,
which they then share
with all their brothers and sisters. »
Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov
If we recognize the Tao’s children,
we recognize her,
for She and her children

from William Martin
Whatever I see is Tao.
Whatever I touch is Tao.
All that is inside me is Tao.
All that is outside me is Tao.
and the eye that views it in wonder
The light years between
that galaxy and me
are also Tao.
So separation is an illusion.
One of my favorite books for children is by Chara Curtis and is titled, All I See Is Part Of Me. That title can be used as a helpful mantra for those times when I feel lost and separated. It reminds me that anything and everything I perceive is a part of me and, conversely, I am a part of everything I perceive.
really feel, myself as a part of All That Is.
The inability of my conditioned mind to feel this truth does not alter its reality.
It is a truth that I must practice until it permeates
the quantum nature of my body
and the very neurons of my brain begin to reprogram my awareness
until I actually know that all I see is part of me,
and I am part of all I see.
