In our world of form, we appear to be surrounded by a multitude of other people.
Those that stand in line at the bank with you, mothers also dropping off their kids at daycare, and the guy that sits in the cubicle across the aisle. Who are these people, and what relationship do they have with you?
Your first answer is probably, “He’s a stranger,” or “That’s Emily’s mom,” or “That’s Joe.”
Those are labels given to the forms of those humans around you. But who are they, really?
It’s a simple answer that can take years to integrate: They’re YOU.
Each person that you see, from the stranger to the guy in your office, is simply YOU.
Let’s break it down even further.
Each of these people are simply a you who has made different choices in life.
Once one awakens, the first premise we tend to adopt is that we are all one. There are many metaphors that describe this law, such as:
- Separate waves that crash ashore from a singular ocean
- Shards of a broken mirror that reflect everything else in its range
Essentially, we are all part of the One, which has created a perceived “separation” so that it can experience and observe itself during infinite creation and expansion. Each individuation created by the One, or Source, or God, if you wish, is a small part of the Whole that exhibits all of Its glory and creational abilities. Each individuation was given the perception of separation so that it may experience the knowledge of its perfection at its own pace. It can remain within the paradigm of separation for as long as it wishes, and transcend from that paradigm to one of wholeness any time it chooses. Each individuation is given free choice.
That guy in the line at the bank–he is an individuation of Source, just as you are. He made choices about his body composition, life circumstances, and spiritual path just as you did.
The lady dropping off her daughter at day care is another individuation of you. She looks different than you, and made conscious and unconscious choices that differ from yours.
And the guy who sits in the cubicle across the aisle–you guessed it. He’s YOU too.
So next time you’re out and about, look at all the different individuations of YOU. You can see which choices they’ve made, and as you awaken, you may be able to ponder why they made them, or you may not. If their actions, or their appearance, or their energy, trigger an emotion in you, then ask yourself what part of you can you see in that person?
After all, each person that you see is YOU, being put into your presence, by–you guessed it again–YOU. Ponder the reason that you are being presented with this aspect of you.
Here is a great video of Matt Kahn elaborating on YOU as other people. Please enjoy.
Love and Light.
