We were given everything we need for creation to express through us the kingdom of heaven on earth. We are all here to have that experience together. All equal parts of the whole. That knowing is … our common sense. It is our primary connection to each other and our creator. It’s our hearts desire... the longing for unity... to feel a part of... to be connected with... each other... our creator... and all of life. It is also... the knowing... we shouldn’t kill each other... people shouldn’t be suffering... dying of starvation... or hurting the environment, etc.
We don’t have to ‘think’ about these things, we already "know" them.
Our common sense tells us; ‘hey, you’re off the beam here’... we just stopped listening... pretending we don’t know what we know. We forgot who we are and why we're here. We’ve been living a lie, be lie ving we are... what we are not … separate... disconnected from each other. But no matter how hard we try to make the lie real… common sense never leaves us. Life gets pretty painful when we don’t use our common sense. So, how do we get back ‘on the beam’? How do we re-connect to our common sense?
It seems plain enough that if we lived from that knowing, we’d have to act and live differently. But what are the guidelines and what do we base this new life on? We would actually have to live from our knowing... a little at a time. At the very least we'd have to take an honest look at how we live. We have taken our mind to be the power for our life and it is not. The mind is a tool Life uses to express itself as each of us. Life operates on truth... truths... that are always true. We're talking about principles... things that never fail, from our own experience when we cooperate with them. They aren’t that hard to find. Actually, they are obvious, just like it says in the constitution of the United States “we hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal… “. Just because we don't live that way, doesn't mean it isn't true!
We can’t, however, ’make’ anyone connect to their common sense. It is our choice; it has to start with each of us individually. First we need to remember what a principle is, not by definition that’s just information. Information can be helpful, but we each need to see, first hand, in our own experience. We only really 'learn' from experience. Although we may cooperate to avoid pain, we don't really learn until we have our own experience which is then a "conscious" choice.
Let's use the metaphor of gravity: It's consistent in our experience; if we drop something it falls, every time. At no time does it not work. The more we co-operate with gravity(or any other principle) and align ourselves with it, the more we become em(I am)powered to accomplish what we want in our life, but when we don’t co-operate... it hurts, we experience pain... in some form. As soon as we come back into alignment and co-operate, we are again empowered (that’s inwardly powered). Co-operation with any principle empowers, consistently... resistance creates the illusion of power called force but force, of itself has no power.
Once we remember what principles are and how to re-cognize them, from our own experience, we can look for, and choose, to align with them... or not. We do this personally first, in our own life, and, we can do it collectively, as the one life together, reminding each other of these common principles. Doing this together, identifying and living from life's principles, creates the new ‘common unity’ based on cooperation, not conflict or competition. In this way we come into harmony with ourselves, each other, and all of life, one small community at a time, to so produce the experience we all came here to have. How? We build on what we have in common and choose, a little at a time to live in harmony from our common sense.
