“No man is an island entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main; if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory [a cape or peninsula] were, as well as any manner of thy friends or of thine own were; any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind. And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee. “ – John Donne
As you read this, bear in mind that, I am writing this from the perspective of linear time, or 3D perspective.
First, let us consider a lone point – you. From that perspective, you have a sphere of influence in which we can directly control things that happen. For example, such as lifting your hand, walking, eating, etc; you can control those things, directly. This is the limit of your personal power. You have only the power to change what is directly within your control. Anything that comes from you, emotions, actions, and thoughts, are all within your full control (if you choose to).
Next, none goes through life as just a single entity. Ultimately, this lone point of influence will meet another point of influence (example ‘me’) and we will interact.
Now, the dynamics changes a little. You can see from the picture that there are now three different zones – the ‘You’ zone, ‘Us’ zone, and ‘Me’ zone. You have direct control over the ‘You’ zone, just as I will have control over the ‘Me’ zone, but neither of us will have direct control over the ‘Us’ zone. Either of us can try to influence anything in the ‘Us’ zone when we interact with it, but the outcomes are not fully within either of our control. This is the zone where neither of us will have any personal power over. Now, as mentioned before, this is a picture of interaction between two individual entities.
It has been said that the world before us is a mirror of our inner world. From the diagram, our world consists of ‘You’, ‘Me’, and ‘Us.’ When this was first explained to me, I always thought that the explanation of the mirror world was somewhat inadequate. From my personal perspective, I just could not believe that I was such a “big shot” that everything around me was dramatizing my inner world, like my higher self was issuing out commands “you do this, then you, you, and you do this,…” Like the world around me consisted of dead matter, like objects, with no personality and acts on the whims of my need for personal enlightenment. Nevertheless, that was not too far from the truth though, idea was right, the underlying explanation given to me was just not right. The truth is, everyone and everything has its own personality and freewill. What drew all the things together at any specific given time was through resonance and the Law of Attraction. ‘You’ meeting ‘Me’ to interact was a result of our frequencies resonating, thus the Law of Attraction drew us together so we could interact to produce ‘Us’ (think about this figuratively/metaphorically). In other words, our actions at anytime are never acting in isolation. Those actions are either the reaction/s of someone else’s influence now, or sometime ago; or a reaction to the confluence of a collection of action from some other collective of individuals. And that action will interact to cause other reactions/outcomes, and so on and so forth – like a chained reaction that never ends. That is the system, that is us, that is me/you, therefore we are all just a part of a larger system – We are ONE. We are all interdependent upon each other. We are just like the different parts of our body, I could be the finger, and you could be the eye; neither of us can say that we do not need the other, nor deny their existence.
When we interact with the world, the picture becomes similar to this :
That is the flower of life, and that is the basis in which our reality/world is created upon. Every action you or I take will always be interacting with something else in the world. That is the essence of Karma, that is also one of the reasons why some people say you get back what you send out tenfold.
Here are a collection of video to explain more about the concept of why we are all one.
