Sacred Relationships — Beyond Excuses
ED Management Guide There is one sun in our sky, and many planets that are obedient to it. There is one government in our country and many laws to govern with. There is one ocean on our planet and many rivers to feed it. There is one earth and many mountains to divide it. There is one creation and many people to evolve it. We live beneath an umbrella. We can rise to the top of one heap, but only find we are now at the bottom of the next. We are always humble to the law of the one and the many.
You have many personas. Many ego identities. Some you hide, some you display. Characters you play. If you add the characters you hide, to the characters you display, to the characters you live in virtual reality to the characters you express in reality, you will find you are the one. We are the sum of the parts, and the sum of the parts is one. We are not different to anyone. We are all the same. Expressed uniquely in the way we demonstrate our fragments, but completely identical if we add those parts to become one.
The ego thinks it is the one, but it is a mere fragment. An emotion. The ego thinks it is separate to others and therefore unique. The ego thinks it can change but it cannot. The ego is a fragment, the spirit is the whole. Spirituality is to know that you are whole, one total being with many fragmented parts. Each of them incomplete, each of them worthy of love.
