Duality keeps the world from coming into greatness and power. All people are of one blood, and The Creator created all, and designed and desires for all Creation to co-exist as one. To Earth’s detriment, religions, races, and politicos have burned the ideology of duality into the societal cortex. Thus, we assail the doctrine of oneness. In actuality, however, spirituality causes a shift that moves from states of duality (division), to becoming one in existence.
Become one with God. Traditional Christianity teaches that sin separates mankind from oneness with God. That duality creates chaos in the universe. But even in this typical, foundational teaching, we find that God did not separate from man because of man's sin; man hid from God. God pursued man even after man's disobedience, and God continues to seek reunion to this day. Man was put out of Eden because God knew that mankind had fallen into a mentality of duality. This was evidenced by man’s act of hiding, and man’s sense of being ashamed. While being one with God, mankind, though he was naked, could not be ashamed. Nakedness was not the evil. When God created man in nakedness, God declared that this creation--in man’s state of total nakedness--was good. Hence, there was no reason for mankind to hide. (There exists no need to hide anything from those with which one shares true oneness.) God knew that this new mentality of duality would wreak havoc on the earth, and to prevent mankind from eating of the Tree of Life and being doomed to this duality mentality forever, God put mankind out of the garden so as to work a plan of redemption that would allow oneness to be re-established. The work of atonement wrought by Jesus’ death on the cross completely reunites humanity with God with NO guilt or condemnation attached. God enjoins divinity with humanity through spirituality. As such, this divine union between The Creator and mankind reflects the same relational intimacy that existed in the Garden that fashioned that utopian state: all creation co-existent in oneness. "That they ALL may be one; as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You, that they also may be one in Us: that the world may believe that You have sent me." John 17:21.
1. Become one with Self. Original sin also separated mankind from Self when, after moving into duality from God, mankind became ashamed of Self because of nakedness. Prior to duality, mankind was naked and not ashamed. Thus we see when mankind moved into duality from The Creator, integration with the Created Self was lost; a fragmented, divided self emerged. This fragmentation is seen most notably in those whose personalities have become severely splintered in a state called multiple personality disorder or MPD. However, this condition is merely a snapshot of duality in its extremity. At lesser levels, people continually struggle to be themselves and become one on a daily basis. Under the pressures of life and in fear of societal rejection, how often can people be found portraying someone they really are not? This fractured fairy tale must be made right. Emotional traumas, hurts, fears, and apprehensions must be assuaged so the journey to integration can begin. "And the glory which You gave me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: I in them, and You in Me, that they may be made perfect in one." John 17:22, 23.
2. Become one with all creation. The utopia of the Garden existed as mankind lived in a state of oneness: with God, Self, the environment, all humans, and all creatures. Romans 8:22 says, "For we know that the whole creation groans and travails in pain together until now." This is in the expectancy and eventual manifestation of the Children of God. The manifestation of the Children of God is seen in those who understand that regardless of ethnicity, religious belief, political doctrine, or any other measure, all people are one blood. Also understood is the fact that mankind is in kinship with all nature, and as such, the Children of God cease to rob, damage, or destroy the earth. As we become one with all and return to the status of the offspring of God, the travail will cease as the former things pass away, and all things become new.
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.
Man is no longer separated from God except to the extent that this is the belief in the mind. The work of atonement is complete, leaving no reason for mankind to continue living in duality. Acceptance of this atoning act is free to all through the blood of Christ. The continuous process of salvation is the continuous process of the renewing of the mind--no longer operating in duality from God, but accepting true union with God, and choosing perpetual operation in this knowledge
Be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Desist duality.
