Oneness

The empyrean realm,
that meeting of
divine and other,
the fundament of love
which transcends
the ache of power
for unity,
that debris
of history,
to a selfless
creative
oneness.

  3. Uplifting. Reminded me of the lyrics from One Love by Bob Marley “One love, one heart
    Let’s get together and feel all right” . If only to achieve unity…a hope for humanity.

  11. Are there any notated points in history when peace, mindfulness and unity were the mode of the day? I believe I’ve heard, that history repeats itself. So maybe if we could point one out? Such beautiful words…

    • Thank you so much Violet. Yes, excellent point. Difficult to answer though, except there are individual moments, or slices to point to. I think of the Moorish invasion of the Iberian peninsula in 711 CE, that delivered harmony between Muslim, Jews and Christians with mutual hospitality and a flourishing of the arts and sciences till 1492. Imperfect – but Switzerland as a neutral, peaceful, country. MLK, Gandhi, Mandela, Tutu. Nothing enduring though, well, not yet 🙂

      • I’ve never heard of the Moorish Invasion is 711CE. Sounds like a substantial reign of peace. I’m going to research it immediately. Thank you so much for sharing this little ray of hope.

      • I think there are others as you suggest, but it’s finding them, but also hoping for more sustainable ones in the future, keep hoping 🙂
