The Groovy Vibe of Oneness

Right before I went to Sivananda for my teacher’s training, I read Beyond Einstein: The Cosmic Quest for the Theory of the Universe, by Michio Kaku. In that book, Dr. Kaku discusses the string theory of the universe—what it boils down to is that everything in the entire universe, is made of vibrations. He described it very much like strings on a guitar—they vibrate, something (sound and more vibrations) is created. As a musician, I was fascinated. What kinds of vibes do we put out there, and how do they shape the world—even if they are only tiny ripples?

This video was sent to me by sculptor Sandra Macintosh. I met her about two years ago—we sat and talked with one another as if we had known each other our whole lives. That connection was truly a timeless and beautiful experience.

We are one. Yogis have been saying it for thousands of years.

A week after reading Beyond Einstein, I was living on an ashram, learning about Vedantic philosophy and practicing meditation and breathing techniques that brought me to that state of “oneness” for hours every day. (Swami Swaroopananda, who was my main teacher, was a physicist before he became a swami—I appreciated his grounded perspective on philosophy). It was a mind-blowing time; my reality was definitely stretched!  Again, the question came up: What kinds of vibes do we put out there, and how do they shape the world—even if they are only tiny ripples?

We are One. Something to be reminded of and to ponder as we go into this next year.

How will you experience the ride?

Namaste Bill Hicks (and everything and everyone)

  1. Those who believe that they are separate, endore misery. I endore misery , because i perceve the separatness. It’s not easy to perseve the oneness. i keep beleiveing that I am special.
    The UFO’s are from deep inside you. The goats grazing, the fire ablaze, all part of The mammalian dream. Why do we desire? Because we believe in the separateness and the importance of our own lives. Why do we suffer? Because we desire. I desire Pop corn at the moment.

    Why do we shake our fist at those who tresspass against us?….. because we believe in the separateness..Do you think that I think that I’m better than Justin Beiber? The answer is , that Justin Beiber and are are merely two goats grazing in a field as a choo choo train rumbles by. He’s prettyer, I’m older, his songs suck, mine don’t ,he can sing , I can’t , it all balances out.

    In closing , I just want to remind everyone, that all of us share 99.9 percent the same DNA as Dick Cheney. Who by the way, went for a DNA test recently to prove it, but all the hyper dermic needle could extract from him was Fracking Fluid. I’d rather be the human centipede attached to Beiber than Cheney. Anyway, we are all one, so It really should’nt matter.

    All hail the Jersey Devil.
    Vote Kucinich.
    Boycott Wal-mart , Mac Donalds Ect..
    Namaste’

    1. you ARE special! a special one. spacial in your oneness. the space that envelopes the choo choo train is the same space inside the choo choo train.

      even though we are one, we all have a special job/purpose/function, no?
      Om shanti Jersey Devil. Si Si Kucinich! Be gone with the Big W’s and Big M’s of the world. Namaste Namaste
