The One Life is the sum total of all that we can see – it is every person, animal, plant and mineral. The one life is the reason for the existence of all these things. If the one Life had not thought us into being, we would not be here.
The one Life is also more than this. It is all that we cannot see. It is the space between us and between all things. It reaches from where we are to the furthest corner of the universe. It stretches away into other dimensions; in fact, this is the source from which it comes. The one Life began in a dimension beyond the known universe, beyond time and space. The one Life of this universe is the result of an idea of an unfathomably immense thinker.
As the entire universe is part of the one Life, nothing happens that it does not know. The one Life has sent its awareness into all things in order to find out what it is and what it can do. It has experimented with form life in multiple dimensions. It still has experiments to conduct as it changes its mind in response to impacts from beyond itself into interuniversal space. It is the great scientist within the laboratory of Life itself. What can Life accomplish, through varying combinations of thought and form?
We are the one Life becoming conscious as itself of that life. We are awakening from a dream in which we were one atom absorbed within itself. We now see and relate to other atoms in our surroundings. The atom, which is our group, self is becoming aware of a greater atom, which is the Whole. We are seeing patterns expanding away into infinity. The pattern of what we are is reflected in a higher and greater portion of ourselves. The greater pattern also reflects upon a yet higher level. Our distorted, clumsy and imperfect local patterns expand into purer and more beautiful patterns. We follow the patterns upwards and outwards to view the patterns of what we are destined to become.
The one Life has temporarily subdivided itself into group atoms to evolve particular qualities. Love is the focus of its intention in our portion of the whole. Our task is to explore the ways and means by which love can be infused into a realm of substance in which it previously was not. This love emanates from beyond the solar system, which is our group atom; not just beyond in the sense of space and distance, but beyond in terms of a higher dimension. It streams outwards from the interdimensional gateway, which is our sun. It contacts the heart centres of our individual and group atoms. As we let it out, we become more and more open to its flow. From us it expands to embrace all that is. The flow has no limit and no end, for the cosmic heart, which is its source, never ceases to beat and supply. Through and beyond the cosmic heart lie higher dimensions yet, where cosmic love enwraps universes in a fiery bliss of oneness.
When we love with open heart, we are aligning with a cosmic pattern and a divine heartbeat. We invite love into our system from the cosmic heart. As the cosmic heart senses our need and our appeal, it realises down the chain of relationship the love that our world needs. Then love spills out through our hearts, into our world and unites all manifestations of the one Life in a collective web of compassion.
