Oneness is Now

Notice that any time you come into right now, right now is tremendously simple. You lose all of your agendas to be somewhere else, to be something, or to get somewhere. Right here is totally adequate. You know you are not a problem to be solved, and neither is your neighbor or the world. This is revolutionary for this current state of human consciousness. Can you imagine if you really let it in that you are not a problem to be solved in any way? Imagine you knew that anything that would tell you otherwise is just a movement of thought in the mind that says, “Whatever is, isn’t the way it is supposed to be.” So the biggest act of compassion starts within. And when the self is no longer seen as a problem, this is called “the peace that surpasses all understanding.”

Until you can see, literally, that everybody is the Buddha, then you are not seeing things the way they are. Mother Teresa once said that when she is treating the sick and starving, she is treating Jesus in everyone. This is not a nice spiritual platitude. It is actual concrete reality. The true Christ is in every being. It is the same as saying the Buddha is in everyone. And the only thing that can perceive this is the Christ within. Only the Buddha within perceives Buddha. Only the Oneness within can perceive the Oneness. The me will never perceive Oneness.

Everybody transmits his or her own realization, like a radio broadcast signal, twenty-four hours a day. And everybody receives it. When you realize that your true nature is already free, that it is inherently empty of image, and that it is pure spirit and presence, you will see that it is what everybody else is. Without even thinking about it, you will transmit this. If you think everybody is separate, you will send out that signal, no matter what you do.

With this freedom you start to realize there is no inner and outer, because it is all one, and the vision of this is more powerful than anything that I will ever say. I guarantee you that one being who sees the Buddha in you is worth more than reading ten thousand books about the Buddha. One being who actually knows that there is only the Buddha and that nothing else is going on has a more powerful effect than anything else.
