“Interweaving into Oneness”

Standard

  I don’t think we ever stop growing spiritually once we start down that path. However, sometimes trying to explain the profound insights that God gives us is like speaking another language. Even to fully understand it for myself I need to bring it into some kind of visual form like a metaphor. I know what it feels like to be One with God. I experience it when the self and spirit work together and there is no longer any separation between us. This Oneness takes work because what the spirit already understands the humanness might not. It is the human part of me that needs that visual in order to pull it together…at least for me anyway. 
Mark Nepo likens this oneness to the nautical definition of marry, “to join two ropes end to end by interweaving their strands.” He goes on to say, “that just as two ropes that are married create a tie that is twice as strong, when we marry our humanness to our spirit, we create a life that is double strong in the world.”*

I would add that when we interweave the self with spirit we become who we were created to be…our true selves.

I've come to know myself as a unique individual expression of God. I love that there is only one me in all the world. I'm still learning, growing and experiencing all the wonders that this life has to teach me. I live, move, and breath in this shell of a body God has given me, and together we travel. He see's, hears, taste, smells and touches all that I experience through the individual personality that I am. I believe He exist in each one of us for the same purpose. I am a daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother and friend to many. I love to write and express the many thoughts that swim around in my head. I love to read. I'm a creative crafty kind of person. I love being in my garden. I've been working on my families genecology for 25 years. I think that about sums me up for now.
