It is difficult to know Wholeness and Oneness when steeped in otherness. When the play of opposites is our dominant orientation, Wholeness and Oneness remain conceptual ideals to be realized.
Transcendent of our identification with and investment in this dualistic, yin-yang life experience, Wholeness abides as our ever stable Self, our changeless ground of Being. And, when we experience Wholeness within ourselves we know Oneness with life’s diversified presentation.

Recognizing life’s omnipresent Source, we acknowledge that in essence, every place is a “sacred space,” regardless of appearance. However, we are likely to regard certain spaces as special, because they seem to nourish us in various ways.
It’s good to acknowledge that in essence, we too are sacred spaces, and we are portable!
Though desire is a primary motivator in our passage through this life, it isn’t the wisest navigator, with discontent often following in its wake.
