In oneness, whether you like it or not, you are connected. It is knowing you are already connected.
The beauty of oneness is this
– it has no specific target and omnidirectional feeling of knowing you are already connected to everyone and everything at the same time. Is it basically knowing that you are not on your own and anything you do will have an impact on the world, whether or not you notice it.
Here are oneness explorations:
Since you are already connected to the people and things, this creates an empathic connection between you and them. You have deep joy when the person rejoices, or you will have deep sorrow when you see a cat just got ran over by a car.
You are now more compassion with the connections linked to you. It is a natural way of showing love and kindness to everyone else. When your staff does not turn up for work because of his husband has been admitted to the hospital, you care for her.
There is this thing about honesty, almost everyone accepts it. When you tell a lie or twist the fact to a person, you are putting the friendship to be distant and disconnected, making it even harder for you to make the connection. So, honesty is always the best policy.
When you treat someone with fairness, it simply means treating them in ways that is honoring our well-being. In other words, it means helping them to align themselves with love, truth and power. However, fairness is not the same with equality. Any part in your body is fairly important, but the cells divided to them are not equal.
Oneness creates an environment where people to contribute their effort, time, money, love or emotions to each other. Since life is too short to live all by yourself, you can definitely go out there and make a difference to someone’s life, whether it is small or big. It can be posting an encouraging note to your colleague in office or bringing your parents to a nice holiday.
The character of oneness makes the world to become more and more unity. Remember the purpose of the Earth- Hour? It was to get everyone on earth to turn off their electricity consumption for one hour. The campaign aims at encouraging the world to save energy for the future use.
How to Experience Oneness?
Spend Time in Nature:
Go to the places where you can experience the awesomeness of the nature. You can go for a walk in the morning, feel the breeze, listen to the birds chirping, stand under the sunshine and tell yourself the nature is just amazing!
Learn to shake hands, give hugs and high fives to the people around you. Play with your turtles or dogs. Touch the leaves on the tree. All these acts are a form of physical contact in oneness.
Authority is the principle derived from the combination of truth and power.
When you have truth without power, you achieve nothing. When you have power without truth, it generates wasted actions. However, when the two are utilized in the right way, it gives you a sense of intelligence and produce great outcomes.
Authority is a way you help you keep track on your focus. Imagine that when you do not have any authority over you, even you have great set of knowledge but it will be pretty difficult for you apply them in your life. You may even take some actions, but the movement can be chaotic without authority.
Here are the key components of authority:
Even though we mentioned authority over you, there is only one true authority in your life and that is you. You give order to the command yourself what you want to achieve and do. On the other hand, this does not give you the rights to commit crime as you will.
Now that you have the authority, but are you effective in implementing the plans? You need to constantly check if you are making the right decisions and choices.
If you want to be competent in any field or areas of your life, you need to invest a significant amount of time and effort. Just because you are good at playing guitar, it doesn’t mean you is a good guitar shop businessman. If you really want to start a business based on your interest, you need to learn the game of being an entrepreneur.
When you grow into authority, you will develop confidence. This is not the temporary kind of confidence, but the far more deeply held beliefs that are in you as a result of past experiences.
What are the things that really matter to you? People of authority do not waste time on things which do not matter to them. They know if authority is used wrongly, they can end up in chasing after nothing meaningful to them. If your children are important to you, how often do you spend time with them? If the environment is important to you, what are doing to save the energy consumption in your home?
How to Increase Authority?
Orchestrate Small Rebellions:
A small rebellion requires you to persist on a decision which others may have opinions about. For example, dying your hair with a sharp color. It may create a ‘Wuah’ effect and people may ask you, “Why are you doing this?” and you just have to reply, “I just feel like doing it”. Nothing serious, just orchestrating a small rebellious.
In the medical industry, patients are divided into 3 groups: Those who will die anyway, whether or not they receive medical treatment. Those who will survive anyway, whether or not they receive medical treatment. Those who will survive only if they receive timely medical attention.
In real life, projects are also divided into 3 groups: Projects that will fail to have significant impact, whether or not you do them. Projects that will succeed anyway, whether or not you do them. Projects that will only have a significant impact when you do them within the given timeframe. We usually focus on the third group, when it comes to the case of triage.
This is a direct testing. You will know the results straight away, whether or not the thing works. If you do not know if billboard ads will work for your company, the best way to find out is to conduct an experiment. Set aside advertising budget and invest in a billboard banner. That’s how you get the answer.
