All exist within a single, interconnected Cosmos that is alive with consciousness. Even the ancient Greeks who coined that term, believed so. We, as miniature reflections of That, are literally the Universe becoming conscious of Itself.
Our job is to realize that. One’s sense of individuality is then merged in cosmic individuality, the small conscious self realizing itself as the non-dual Large Self, that contains all things.
Thinking upon how this applied to one’s work in the world I concluded that if one wants the enduring peace of God one should be unattached to the fruits of our labors, devoting our unique, creative gifts to the great work of helping all beings wake up to their true nature.
The antithesis to this is to work for personal gain, the dominant ideology that runs our world. This, I believe, is a great fallacy. What is there for one individual to gain that does not belong to the Cosmos, in the end? There is no selfish endeavor that can end in happiness.
But to have the deep and enduring peace of God one should be like God, and God ONLY serves. So, that, I think, should be our goal, too.
