|Until I respect my sacredness,
I cannot respect yours.
Until I experience and cherish my separateness,
I cannot be ONE.
Until I experience ONENESS with God, I cannot fully individuate--I cannot be fully
Some people are lucky. They experience this oneness in their mother's arms and carry
it with them forever. But I am not so lucky. I have forgotten this sweetness. So I seek
surrogate experiences, that never fully satisfy me.
In order to be separate, I must be complete. In order to respect and cherish the
individuality of others, I must recognize myself as a complete whole. In order to be a
complete whole, I must experience ONENESS. And continue to re-experience it with God, the
Universe, a power beyond my limited self. Otherwise, I will attempt to use others or
things or destructive behaviors to fill the vast emptiness within me.
And I will fail. For the infinite well within me requires an infinite Source.
There is no other Source than thee, oh Goddess!
