Unity Within

Unity with oneself results in the ability to love, it’s a simple decision to be made. A self serving mind generates conflict within oneself, but love generates a mind that’s in unity with itself.

The simplicity of life is related to our ability to love which allows for unity with our own mind. That’s why its imperative to understand, not the great secrets of the Universe, but your own mind. When the mind is in unity with itself, it’s in unity with all that is, it’s as simple as that. It’s the same mind that creates conflict and unity so which of these we’re conditioned to manufacture determines the outcome of how we live life.

Conflict is generated by the energy of a self serving mind and doesn’t make life conducive to love, so if conflict is what’s being created, there won’t be much unity with oneself. What direction the mind goes in is the energy that it generates and to that extent will one be in unity with themselves; this is unity with our own mind and only unity can result in unity.

Unity is simply our ability to love, this is our hearts direction, hence it becomes the direction of our mind. When love is generated it produces much different results then when the energy generated is self serving. The results are in the form of being in unity with oneself and thus there’s unity with all beings. To love is the simplest form of life, it’s what puts us in unity with life itself. Our unity is in our ability to love, our conflict is in our choice to self serve and it’s up to each individual which energy is generated and what the results of life will be. Simply love and unity will be, or not and life will remain a struggle, but don’t blame life for this, it’s one’s own energy that directs what’s chosen. Love is simple to understand, but not easy to generate and when love is in unity with life one is in unity with love.

I grew up in Newark, New Jersey, one of six children. I have been married for 25 years. I own a home, and I have two children. I have been at the same job for 28 years. I am the happiest I have ever been and it is all because of the Love that has always been in my life. I attribute all that has happened to me to that Love. None of what has transpired in the last five years of my life has anything to do with any accomplishments on my part. There was always a lot of love in our home as I grew up, but for reasons unknown to me at the time I was always in trouble. I was at the top of my brother-in-law’s “Who My Sister Shouldn’t Marry” list. I drank alcoholically, gambled, abused drugs and painkillers. I bounced from relationship to relationship. Even after I stopped abusing alcohol and drugs in 1987, my so-called outer troubles stopped, but my self-centered behavior never changed. All I did was substitute one compulsion for another. Although my addiction became more respectable—taking the form of material possessions—I was still trapped, migrating restlessly from one obsession to another. I went to Twelve Step meetings, derived some benefit from them, and then fell away. My loved ones got me into de-tox and rehab programs. But once I was released, the cycle of insatiable craving started all over again. This cycle seemed to work for me . . . until it didn’t. And then my life changed — not instantly or magically, but profoundly. I share this change in It’s Monday Only in Your Mind: You Are Not Your Thoughts. I discovered that I wasn’t dependent upon a substance or activity, but ruled by my ego. My need to reach outside myself for fulfillment was created by a false perception of deficiency. If this sense of lack didn’t exist in me, there wouldn’t have been a need to reach and grasp. My credentials for writing this book are simply that I live this change each day. My view of life is so different from the way it used to be. Through the practice outlined in my book, I have learned to quiet my mind enough to allow my heart to open. The quieter my mind becomes, the more Love becomes the default setting of my life. This is truly a modern-day miracle, a miracle that can happen to anyone who has the urge to change. www.mondayinyourmind.com
