T oday I intend to blow your mind by sharing one surprising fact and several subsequent insights that promise to leave you eager to make the most of the rest of your life. And what I share should certainly help unshackle your innate ability to heal yourself and others.
I’m going to prove to you that we are all connected energetically, and why this fact can revolutionize the way you think, see, and interact with everyone you knowingly come into contact with – and why you are, in fact, in contact with everyone at every moment, no matter how far apart you are from them, or how predisposed you are as to how you feel about them.
So, let’s get started with a few quotes, to establish this premise that we’re all connected.
In “Cosmos: A Personal Voyage,” a thirteen-part, 1980 television series written by astronomer Carl Sagan, Carl Sagan assures us that, “We are made of star-stuff. We are a way for the universe to know itself.”
As astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson explained more completely in his book “Astrophysics for People in a Hurry,” “What we do know, what we can assert without hesitation, is that the universe had a beginning, and it continues to evolve. And every one of our body’s atoms is traceable to … the thermonuclear furnaces within high-mass stars that exploded more than five billion years ago. We are stardust brought to life, then empowered by the universe to figure itself out – and we have only just begun.”
And, finally, to help you get an even better handle on the romance that encircles this fact, Lawrence M. Krauss wrote in his book, “A Universe from Nothing: Why There is Something Rather than Nothing,” “The amazing thing is that every atom in your body came from a star that exploded. And the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand. It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics: You are all stardust. You couldn’t be here if stars hadn’t exploded because the elements for life – the carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, iron, all the things that matter for evolution – weren’t created at the beginning of time. They were created in the nuclear furnaces of stars, and the only way they could get into your body is if those stars were kind enough to explode.”
I’ve repeated this established fact three times simply to underscore that you and everything else in the universe is energetically connected because all of what’s here now came from the same source. In physics, this is what is known as Quantum Entanglement: whenever something begins as a whole, even though it is physically separated, energetically it is still connected.
Now, let’s simply linger with this fact for a few more seconds, whether it’s old or new to you, so you have a chance to embrace not just the fact but the potential for global transformation that it suggests.
“Whenever something begins as a whole, even though it is physically separated, energetically it is still connected.”
Some of my favorite quotes refer to this fact. A Serbian proverb states, “Be humble for you are made of earth. Be noble for you are made of stars.”
And in her book “The Puzzle Ring,” Kate Forsyth writes,
“There’s a flame of magic inside every stone & every flower, every bird that sings & every frog that croaks. There’s magic in the trees & the hills & the river & the rocks, in the sea & the stars & the wind, a deep, wild magic that’s as old as the world itself. It’s in you too, and in me, and in every living creature. Even the dirt I’m sweeping up now is stardust. In fact, all of us are made from the stuff of stars.”
I can just imagine your reaction to what I’ve just shared. I’m sure you are breathless, speechless, gob smacked, if you’re learning this fact for the first time in your life, or if you’ve never really pondered it as profoundly before. Or maybe you’re nodding your head so fervently that you’re perilously close to giving yourself a mild case of whiplash! Whatever your reaction, I hope it will remain robust as I continue, because this insightful fact carries enormous implications.
And yes, I know this may come across as Pollyanna-like naivete, given the current political and corporate climate in which the authorities are dedicated to trying to keep us all in separate silos so we think we have nothing in common with each other that could make us decide to join together to establish a common good for all.
But, in my opinion, the authoritarian and patriarchal personalities among us are on the brink of losing, and that’s why they’re scrambling right now to support and pass laws and to insidiously create internal strife and silos that seek to separate us from each other to maintain a status quo that has kept them in the catbird’s seat for far too long.
However, in order to prevail, we have to remember that these folks are not enemies. They are a part of the same energetic stardust fabric that we are, and therein lies our path to transforming them.
If you know how a tuning fork works to tune musical instruments, then you have a sense of what our task is. It is to combine our higher vibrational energy fields until they become purer and greater than theirs. When this happens, those minds will begin to vibrate at higher, more truly spiritual levels and shift them into higher consciousness, so they can finally realize that equity and lovingkindness are the quintessential forces in the universe and that they have been defeating their own best interests by continuing to exploit other beings (all of whom they are related to) and this planet.
Yeah, it’s a lot to take in. But it’s the only way we can survive long-term. Countless Indigenous populations have known about their connection to earth, to the cosmos, and to each other for eons. It’s time the rest of us figure it out and embrace it, too.
And that’s why so many of you are here right now, and why I’m here. We’re here to love and guide the authoritarian powers and their fear-based supporters to change their basic assumptions and shift them from a mindset of scarcity and lack, to a mindset of abundance, joy, self-healing, inclusion, and lovingkindness.
To put this magnificent spiritual and energetic plan into action, it’s crucial to make sure that you and I and everyone else who is proactively involved in this endeavor are operating from within an energy field frequency that vibrates to the energy of lovingkindness.
It isn’t always easy to enter this higher energy vibration, but unless we position ourselves here, there is the very real risk that we may be derailed by an intense, far less helpful emotion like frustration or anger. If you’re familiar with The Hawaiian forgiveness meditation of Ho’ponopono, which I taught a few months ago, that’s a good place to start. If you aren’t familiar with it, you can practice it with me here:
Understand, here, that the lower-vibration folks you’re attempting to influence and assist are misguided and fearful, standing in their own way of enlightenment, no matter which position they hold in society. Although some are indeed sociopathic — lacking the ability to experience or understand empathy, the concept of fair play, or looking beyond their own narrow interests — most are not. So, proceed as if each of them has a moral compass and as if they are a beloved, but fearful, part of yourself, because that’s the case. Again, we’re all connected. Approaching them in any other way will just cause them to erect a barrier against your perceived “intrusion” into their fortified castles.
Commit this quote from Abhishek Kumar to your memory banks: “If you want to be loved, love. If you want to be understood, understand. If you want peace, make peace. If you want light, be a light. If you want to be seen, shine. If you want to be heard, listen. You only get what you give.”
Befriend them. Help the fearful and misinformed feel safe with you and loved by you. To the degree that you can accomplish this, you will have success. If you manage to truly befriend them at the heart level, Jeanette LeBlanc’s description of your improved relationship will prevail (I’m paraphrasing here): “Out there is a love who …. speaks, like you, in poetry and candle wax and stardust. And that person, when you find him or her, will see you and know you – just as you are and just as you should be. And they will say yes. Yes, you. I will go there with you. I have been waiting for this.”
Be patient. When people realize they’ve been misled or mistaken, it takes a while to process, mourn, and recover. They may backslide a time or two or three, but it will usually be the fear center in their hyperalert brain going off again. They will need time to desensitize their amygdala and retrain it. Recall that it took you time to get where you are now intellectually and energetically. Grant them the same leeway and grace.
This effect is what you can expect to start happening as you influence others in the direction of loving kindness for every sentient being.
When we live our lives in response to and in conjunction with loving kindness, we will leave a legacy that can profoundly change the trajectory of the future. And on some far distant day, I hope, as each of us transition from this plane of existence to the next, someone may write about us along the lines that Akshay Vasu wrote regarding another stardust soul: “And her heart burst, like the stars do in the end, and she fell on her knees. But the whole world looked at her in awe. She lit the whole universe with her fire for a moment. In the end, she was as beautiful as the stardust falling from the sky … and her heart didn’t ache anymore.”
Wouldn’t we all love a send-off like that one!
