JustJoJan Day 26 – Love is Oneness and Oneness is Love

I ended up staying late at work tonight so I’m feeling rushed to get something up, and yet I’ve thought about oneness all day and can’t think of anything specific to write. It probably has a lot to do with the fact that I write about oneness a lot on my blog. If any of you wondered, it is something I absolutely believe in – that we are all interconnected beings.

So, instead of coming up with my own words and struggling for an hour to write something, I’ve decided to use other people’s words. Below are some beautiful quotes by people I admire and respect, and some I just barely came across tonight. I hope you enjoy!

“You and I are all as much continuous with the physical universe as a wave is continuous with the ocean.”
Alan W. Watts

“We all are so deeply interconnected; we have no option but to love all. Be kind and do good for any one and that will be reflected. The ripples of the kind heart are the highest blessings of the Universe.”
Amit Ray, Yoga and Vipassana: An Integrated Life Style

“There is in each person, in every animal, bird and plant a star which mirrors, matches or is in some sense the same as a star in the heavens.”
Paracelsus

“Wherever I go, whomever I meet, I see myself in their eyes, because I am a part of everything, because I love.”
Miguel Ruiz, The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom

“True communication is communion- the realization of oneness, which is love.”
Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment

“To see the divine in others, we have to love. Where love is thick, faults are thin. If you really love someone, then it is difficult to find fault with him. His faults seem negligible, for love means oneness. This oneness comes from our conscious acceptance of his reality as it is.”
Sri Chinmoy

The thing that struck me with every one of those quotes is how they all reference love in one form or another.

  1. What a wonderful post. I loved your quotes. Love is powerful. In the scriptures it tells us to love our neighbor as ourselves. You can’t love your neighbor if you can’t love yourself. And love one another as I have loved you from the scriptures. Love you sweet girl!!
