Do Not Forget That You Are All Mirrors to One Another
channeled by John Smallman

All are One. You have all heard this many, many times already, but as humans, as apparently separate unconnected individuals, it is very difficult for you to really comprehend this absolute Truth. In the illusion separation seems intensely real, especially if you become suddenly and unexpectedly parted from a loved one.
Individuality is an intensely felt sensation when you dwell on it, and apart from moments when you are physically embracing someone you dearly love, you are very, very glad to be an individual, totally separate from those seemingly weird strangers among whom you wander as you go about your daily chores.
Most of you would most definitely not want to actually be one with anybody else, even your most dearly beloved, because you value your own personal experiences so highly and fear that they would be gone if you lost your individuality. Plus of course, you would not wish to undergo any of the unpleasantness, pain or suffering that the other experienced.
But in Oneness there is only joy! Suffering and pain are of the illusion, and when it dissolves they will be gone, permanently. And deep within yourselves you all know this which is why, when you fall in love, you do want to merge with your beloved, even if only temporarily. You have faint memories of Oneness, of the joy and ecstasy of that state, and it is for that that you are looking when you are seeking out another to love and be loved by, or when you choose a celibate spiritual path seeking God directly, or even when you elect to follow a combination of the two.
You were not created to be alone, you were created One with your Source, God, and that is indeed an idyllic state in which to exist; and it is your natural state, the state that you so desperately seek but can never find as a human because the illusion blinds you to Reality, hides It from you. Humanity as a whole has finally realized this collectively, although by and large it has not seeped into the individual conscious awareness of most of you. And consequently many of you continue to seek and find alternatives which never bring lasting satisfaction or contentment, but often bring much pain and suffering.
