We have become so conditioned by religion and science that we do not even know we are thinking and believing from a state of separation.
It is that insidiously embedded.
It informs our actions, our plans, relationships, lifestyles, choices, our values, and our health.
We think from separation. It’s the dominant world view, and we are all imprisoned by it.
However – It was not always this way. And to survive, thrive and evolve, we have to move forward to an integrated, modern holistic model of living that has Wholeness as its abiding state.
- The indigenous tribes believed that everything is one thing, and humans are a part of that. They also knew, innately, that a human being is a whole being, not separate from anything.
- Holism was the basis of the Greek Wisdom tradition.
- The Indian system of health, Ayurveda, an over 4000 year old practice, has holism as its central principle.
- Chinese medicine is rooted in body, mind and spirit.
We left the natural way behind with the advent of the scientific age and industrial revolution.
When and why did we separate ourselves off from Natural Law?
“We decided we were above nature. We saw our gifts and skills, our minds and our unique abilities to build, create and organise, as things that put us above nature, and thus superior to it, and thus not governed by its laws. We developed our arrogance and selfish ways at the same time as we developed our separation beliefs. It was inevitable.
It has been an experiment in separation.
And we have learned so much. It is hard to say we have failed.
But separation, arrogance and selfish ways have brought us to where we are now, and we have a choice. That choice is one faced by each of us, by our collective bodies, by national bodies and by the global collective.
Do we remain as we are and fight our way to freedom. Do we war, isolate, blame, argue, defend, hate, attack, separate, toxify and pollute our way forward?
Or do we reunite, remember our holistic nature, remember the natural law, reaffirm our connection to each other, the land and the universe itself, and move forward together?
There are only two choices: Fear or Love.
Fear is the way of separation.
Love is the way of Unity.
Holism is not some woo woo, new age idea. It may have become that. But that does it no justice whatsoever.
Holism is a deep and profound understanding and embodiment of the World and everything in it. It is a profound living philosophy, not just some spa pampering idea.
Holism is a Way of Being and Living – It is an interconnected, intelligent, caring, considerate, harmonious and loving way of living that is inclusive not exclusive. It is connected not separate. It is sharing not hoarding, and selfless not selfish. Holism is a deep understanding and living of the principle that ‘I Am You and You Are Me,’ and what is done to me is also done to you. Holism is a way of seeing life as a whole thing seeking harmony and balance. Holism IS Wisdom lived, not just thought or believed. It is a ‘living embodiment.’
But there is another thing. You don’t have to give up your urban life, everything you have and own, you don’t have to ‘go native’ and become hippy to start living deeply holistic principles. In fact don’t do that, unless you really want to.
Urban Holism is what is needed, and it is filtering through, slowly and clumsily. We see it is the campaigns for green roofs, more vegetable gardens, the growing desire for organic and natural foods, the recycling of everything we threw away like shipping containers as homes. We see it in our movements for clean energy and alternative fuels, we see it in our fight for alternative medicine. It’s growing. And it’s growing in people as well. We see it in the emergence of a vast spiritual awakening.
Holism is needed in the city, in relationships, in interactions, communications and business. Holistic principles will become the foundation of new business values in the future, because they are built on win/win/win. I win, you win, and the world wins.
‘So far from this way of living being an escape from the world, it will actually become the bedrock of a new world that is already emerging.’
Thats where you and I come in. It’s not an intellectual pursuit, nor an academic theory. It’s not something you learn from a text book, it’s a living, breathing experience of wholeness. It is a re-harmonization of body, emotion, mind and spirit. And it calls each one of us to find out where that is not happening within our lives, and then attend to it.
It’s what I call the ‘Return to Wholeness.’
You are Wholeness forgotten itself and take itself as Separate.
My role and function is to assist your transformation so you remember your true holistic nature. This itself IS the healing principle. My aim is to reconnect you with your own love, because your own love is the nature of the universe. It heals you and it heals the world.
