What Is Oneness?

“It is not so much that we are to return to God but rather that we are to express the fullness of the nature of God in our present lives.  The Edgar Cayce readings express the same insight in these terms:

“Hence as man applies himself, he becomes conscious of that union of infinite force with the finite force.” (262-52)

Jesus was accused of blasphemy for saying, ‘I and my Father are one,’ but then He replied by quoting Psalm 82:6, ‘Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?’

He made it clear that He was not making special claims about Himself but rather was quoting from a highly revered Old Testament source, reminding us of our own divinity.  The passage says, ‘Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the Most High.’

This principle, that we are gods, is one of the most important ways of stating the gospel, and it is good news indeed.  Yet it is not simply news for the intellect– it is for the heart as well.

Jesus’ claim to divinity, a block upon which we seem to enjoy stumbling, was in truth His claim for the divine origin and sonship of all people.  Jesus said, ‘If you have seen me you have seen the Father.’  He also said, ‘I am in the Father and the Father is in me and I am in you and you in me.’

That is … Oneness.”

After thirty years of teaching Inner City, Special Education students and forty-five years of metaphysical studies, I have decided to share my life's philosophical understandings on this wonderful website. For me, everything in my life has been a spiritual experience from being raised in an alcoholic household, to marriage and teaching, and finally caring for an Alzheimer parent. I have sought at least fifteen, personal psychic readings to try and assist me as a wife, teacher and caretaker. I want to share the wisdom that I have gained from following the valuable spiritual guidance from my inner knowing and from heeding the advise of channeled answers from trusted psychics. At almost 70 years old, I am writing, traveling and enjoying retirement in Florida.
