The 4th of July marks the time when the Declaration of Independence and separation from England and the tyranny of the King and the old world, was signed in Philadelphia in 1976.
On the Fourth we celebrate with fireworks and merrymaking and claim ourselves to be free. Do you feel free? Free from what? What is it we want to be free from? What do we want to separate from? Perhaps we need to celebrate the freedom to join with others instead of separation. When we join in the Oneness with all living things and everyone including our perceived enemies, we have peace, true peace. We as a nation are in the process of “joining” with Cuba. Let’s join with all Nations!
We will continue to have wars until we declare ourselves free from enmity. Why do we need enemies?
President Lincoln said “ To defeat an enemy, make him your friend.” We cannot be free or happy when we exclude ourselves from others
This 4th of July celebrate Oneness with everyone in your life, your acquaintances, even those who may have moved beyond in space and time. Instead of feeling separate join with them! All minds are joined. Join in the celebration that we are here at this place and time, on this tiny fragile speck in space. Join in interdependence on the only mother we humans have, Mother Earth.
