Jesus Himself said "I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you," (John 14:20 KJV). We are all part of that same spiritual Source. Jesus was a child of God-just as we are all children of God. What Jesus did, we are all being called to do and, as our Elder Brother and the Pattern, He will show us the way. In fact, Jesus is the Good Shepherd who is very much involved with us right now in teaching us about our relationship with the Creator. In discussing with God our joint spiritual nature and eventual destiny, Jesus said:

They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world...That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one. I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.

John 17:16, 21-23 KJV

This importance of this information, the fact that every individual is an integral part of God's creation and that we all share the same relationship with the Creator as even Jesus, will eventually transform (even revolutionize!) the ways in which we think about ourselves and treat one another.

Conclusion

Why do we have so many religious sects if the principle of oneness is an undergirding force in the universe? In part, the answer lies in our own diversity and in the fact that we are all drawn to what we need at a given time for our own personal growth and development. In addition, we also possess the very human trait of wanting to "pin down" our truth, putting parameters around our understanding so that we can deal with it. But truth is a growing thing, and the Cayce readings affirm that no one has all the answers to the marvelous question of who we really are as God's spiritual children. But even in the midst of our diversity, we share a common spiritual heritage. We are all children of the same God. We are all part of the one spiritual Source, our Creator, our Mother/Father, our God.

Each soul in entering the material experience does so for those purposes of advancement towards that awareness of being fully conscious of the oneness with the Creative Forces.

Oneness as a force suggests that each of us is connected in ways that we might never before have imagined. Our challenge is to bring that wholeness to consciousness, an "awareness within each soul, imprinted in pattern on the mind and waiting to be awakened by the will, of the soul's oneness with God." (reading 5749-14) Regardless of an individual's religion or personal beliefs, this Christ pattern exists in potential upon the very fiber of his or her being. It is that part which is in perfect accord with the Creator and is simply waiting to find manifestation in one's life.

The Infinite, Eternal Oneness
BY JOHN VAN AUKEN

In the thousands of enlightening readings given by Edgar Cayce there is woven a fascinating thread telling of ancient beings who held a belief in the Oneness of all. As we study this idea in the Cayce archives, we become aware that Cayce is describing something much bigger than simple oneness, he's describing a wholeness that no one can get beyond. No one can get beyond the Whole for the Whole is the whole; there is nothing beyond it. It is infinite and universal. Strangely, it is everywhere and yet nowhere! It is the Hidden Cosmic Womb and the Universe. Keep in mind that our scientists tell us that we only see 4 percent of the universe-96 percent is invisible! There's much more to life and reality than we perceive at present. But there was a time when you and I knew it all! We experienced it all. And those memories are latent within us today.

Let's review this ancient tale in order to touch that place within us again. It begins long before our lives today. It begins when we were angels! Yes, we were once angels or "godlings" in the heart and mind of the Infinite Eternal One, as Kabbalah teaches. This is God and all of creation, what the Bible calls "the Heavenly Hosts" or "Heavenly Assembly." Jesus referred us to this passage in an answer he gave to the Pharisees in the gospel of John 10:33. The Pharisees charged him: "'It is not for a good work that we stone you but for blasphemy; because you, being a man, make yourself God." To this charge Jesus answered, "Is it not written in your law, 'I said, you are gods?'" Jesus is referring to lines in Psalm 82:1,6: "God presides in the great assembly. He judges among the gods…You are gods, all of you are sons [and daughters] of the Most High."

According to Cayce and many other sources of ancient lore, you and I were conceived in the Universal Consciousness, in the Womb of God's Mind. It all began with God conceiving the essence of beingness or what is known today as the Logos, the prototype being. God is not a being but an infinite, eternal Spirit; as Jesus shared with the woman at the well: "God is Spirit and seeks same to worship Him." (John 4:24) And this Logos followed God's creative way by conceiving all of us-beings within the Being, which is in the Infinite Spirit. Jesus: "In that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you." (John 14:20) And this Logos, or "the Word," as John wrote in the opening of his gospel, conceived us intentionally and specifically! Yes, I know it doesn't feel that way today, but it's true. And even today God, our Creator, is mindful of us; the Infinite is aware of each finite being. This is the Collective Consciousness within the Oneness.

Originally we were angels or godlings like God: "God created man in his own image." (Genesis 1: 27) The English word "man" in this passage is actually the Hebrew word for "being" or "person," with no gender-specific intimation. Male and female were one in each being. That word is "adam" with a lower-case "a," and does not mean a male man. And only in Genesis is this Hebrew word translated "man"; in other parts of the Bible this same word is translated as "person." The angels, godlings, or "persons" were created in the image of God, having both the yin and yang in oneness within themselves, as God also contains both. It was not until we get to Genesis, chapter 2, verse 18, that these qualities were separated into two different forms, woman and man.

In this next reading Cayce is being asked questions about angels and specifically the concept of a guardian angel: "Is it through the guardian angel that God speaks to the individual?" He answered: "…Yes-through thy angel, through thy self that is the angel-does the self speak with thy Ideal!" (1646-1) Here Cayce told his stenographer to italicize the words "self" and "is" in order to emphasize to us that a portion of our being is the angel! He also told her to capitalize the initial letter in the word "ideal" because it refers to God, but allows that we individuals have varying concepts of who and what God is, so Cayce allows for whatever our "ideal" of God may be. In another reading he said: "'I will give my angels charge concerning thee'…The face of the self's own angel is ever before the Throne. Commune oft with Him." (1917-1)

Can we accept this as absolutely true? Can we fully comprehend that a portion of you and me is "ever before the Throne" of God's consciousness? Clearly our original condition was as an angel and a godling, and that portion of us still exists, and it is that portion of our being that may commune with us, guard us, and even guide us because it is in direct contact with God's Mind, or another way to say this is that it is and has always been, and continues to be a portion of God! And it is through this angelic portion of our being that we may commune with our loving Creator, in whose image we are made and have our being.

How come we get to struggle on this war-like planet when our higher self gets to frolic in a heavenly ocean of eternal bliss?

I heard this yesterday,
"All souls make it eventually"
Well there it is, the truth is out.
Even if it takes many lives.
Everyone is going to make the grade.
Even the guys who summon demons
and re-open the gates of hell.

According to eckhart tolle "making it" means replacing the ego with awareness and presence.
That sounds pretty good.
Apparently, when a person allows something to upset them, that's the ego defending it's position in the hierarchy of egos.

I see the army guys are getting ready for the vimy ridge ceremonies.
The black crows are cawing.
The pigeons are acting weird.
"According to the Ornithology Department of Cornell University, the pigeon courtship ritual begins when the male selects a potential breeding partner. He performs a courtship dance designed to attract the female bird's attention. The pigeon makes ruffles or puffs out his neck and wing feathers to make himself appear larger, approaching the female bird with a series of bows and turns. At first, the female bird walks or flies away a short distance, forcing the male to follow. However, if she accepts the male bird's proposal, she eventually stops. The male then makes an offering of food to the female bird, at which point she allows him to mount her.
Pigeons are a member of the dove family, a type of bird commonly associated with weddings and used to symbolize love. The lifelong mating habits of these birds has helped give them this association."
