The Oneness Principle

In a nutshell the Oneness Principle corresponds to a spiritual Internet that allows those who properly tune in to receive understanding on any true principle. This principle, when applied, can instantly transform two who disagree into a unity of thought.

Here are some of my previous writings on this principle.

Now when two people are in the Oneness Principle they can speak from different backgrounds with a different way of looking at definitions yet sense the meaning the other is trying to convey. Reading Xavier for us English speaking people is a great example of this. Even though he sometimes struggles to convey his thought because his native tongue is French, most of us get a good sense of where he is heading even when he is using a weird selection of words.

On the other hand, when people are centered in the personality and ego and any disagreement arises this “feel” for what the person means goes out the window. For this cause it is good to have a uniform definition of terms.

Scientists use very exact definitions which allow them to communicate professionally with minimal distortion. Now we who are becoming spiritual scientists need to follow this same principle. Concerning myself I know that all members on the list cannot absorb by supernatural means what my true meaning is if my terms are fuzzy, so as a teacher I have some responsibility to make myself clear.

Seek first the Kingdom of God and come into the Oneness Principle where you will only be concerned about what the Spirit tells you to be concerned with. Now with me as an individual the Spirit did not tell me to be concerned over Y2K. It does tell me to be concerned over the threat of the extinction and of civilization and to do all in my power to prevent it.

Many fundamentalists have the idea that Jesus is going to show up and exterminate the wicked and somehow force everyone to live in peace. The scriptures are true, but the second coming will not take place as they expect. The picture of bringing peace by killing everyone who doesn’t accept you is of the adversary indeed.

We must take individual responsibility for our destiny as beings in the image of God, but my whole point was to seek within for guidance through the Spirit so each of us will know our own part. Then if we play that part successfully we will be told what to do for the highest good of the whole, and if we follow it there will be no need to worry, even if the worst should happen on a personal level.

There has been only a handful of teachers working through the Oneness Principle. I do not intend to sort them out for list members. That is to be between you and your own souls. But I will say this. That those who have arrived at the Oneness Principle will have an amazingly similar appreciation for the same groups of writings. Those outside of the Oneness Principle will either like every teacher that comes along or cling to one or two as the greatest and reject the rest.

Soul contact is the door that brings us to the Oneness Principle that I have often mentioned. When the door is open and the seeker enters in he becomes one in the body of the soul and two or more who dwell beyond this door together will see the same vision.

Now that this first great hurdle has been crossed a second major obstacle is now in the way. It is fine to enter into the world of soul and then return and be “in the world,” but when the consciousness settles down in this reality we tend to get spiritual amnesia and lose sight of the soul. Losing sight of the soul is especially easy to do in relationships. As far as the isolated individual goes there is not as much to get in the way of soul contact as there is with another human being. Why? Because most of us see ourselves as good decent humans trying to do our best. But those with whom we are in relationship with are another matter. They often seem dead wrong, cold hearted, distant, stubborn, mean spirited, and just plain nasty at times. When these negative aspects that are not part of the kingdom of the soul are focused on then the soul goes out of focus and the two remain two.

The principle of Oneness is this: 1+1=1. You being one communicate through the soul with another who is one and join through the soul into a unified life where you discover that the two of you are a part of one soul with one vision. Thus 1+1=1. This mathematical formula will be rejected by mind without soul, but makes perfect sense to the soul infused personality.

When you draw within to pray, meditate or seek for answers where is up or down, right or left? Technically they do not exist for the Spirit of God dwells in the very center of your being. When that center is found you seem to be lifted up in awareness and thus God is refereed to as “up there,” but it would be more accurate to describe him as “in there.” If the kingdom of God is within then it only stands to reason that God dwells in his kingdom does it not?

Question:

What are the barriers that prevent two people from entering soul contact together and experiencing the Oneness Principle? How do we overcome these barriers? We talked a little about this as it applies to a romantic relationship, but the same principles apply to all relationships.

If you have a friend or co-worker and all your attention is focused on what is wrong with him this takes your attention away from the face of Christ that is within him. Again, by an act of will we must direct our attention away from his faults and toward the soul. When this is done the seeker can then sense and realize the oneness of all mankind and that his brother on a higher level is one with him.

Question:

Can we have an awareness of the imperfections of another yet still see the perfection within? How is this possible?

The scriptures say:

“They shall see eye to eye when the Lord shall bring again Zion.” How can a group see eye to eye without the imposition of strong authority? We see how difficult it is with us don’t we? Is it possible for 200 or more to see eye to eye? Seeing eye to eye through the Holy Spirit uses all the heart and the mind so if anything being one in Christ is mind-full and heart-full.

If seeing eye to eye is “agreeing to disagree” then there should be plenty of people in the oneness principle right now. Oneness awaits a people who can see eye to eye in the building of God.

In our lower natures we have many disagreements and when we reach a dead end we may agree to disagree. Many people without soul contact do this daily. But as we approach building the kingdom of God, points will be reached where agreeing to disagree will not work but will cause progress to come to a screeching halt. When this happens the Oneness Principle must come into play and the two must contact the Spirit through the Soul together. Then the Spirit which is One reveals the same thing to both of then at the same instant and then two or more entities become as one mind joined in the one mind of God. The instant the revelation is received they no longer agree to disagree, but agree to agree and providing both abide by what they have received and do not deny the revelation of the Spirit. They will then move ahead seeing “eye to eye.” Notice that it does not say eyes to eyes? This is because of the emphasis put on the unity that is attainable through the window of the soul.

Soul contact is just the beginning of an endless journey. Just because we participate to a degree in the oneness principle does not mean that we have achieved all there is to achieve. When we become members of the Kingdom of God all knowledge is available to us if we earnestly put our attention on it, but which knowledge to bring into our sphere and what to do with it is an eternal process.

Consequently if there be two people upon the Path one will be in a different location than the other. If we are left to our own devices we will stumble on the path or wander off in strange directions in the dark. Sacred writings are given to us to help, but we often misinterpret them. The greatest aid to us is someone who has already taken the step we desire to take. This person knows all the pitfalls and most importantly he can testify that the step is really there to be taken.

By understanding a principle you can understand all the details related to the principle once the principle is clear in your mind. So by the power of this spiritual Internet we can tune in, by the oneness principle, to any of the lives here upon the earth, the principles that are going through those minds.

How do we tune in to it? One of the ways is through seed thoughts. You put a thought in your mind and you contemplate it. Contemplation is the highest form of meditation. When most people think of meditation they think of making their mind blank. This is a negative form of meditation and it has its place. It’s good to relax you but it’s not really a good way to discover knowledge. The way to discover knowledge and develop ability to commune through the oneness principle is through the meditative state called contemplation.

One of the ways to contemplate is by putting an idea or a thought in your mind and expanding on that thought.

And this should be our goal as individuals; is to develop this sensitivity and perhaps the greatest key to developing it is to follow the highest that we know. And when we follow the highest that we know we will receive more. If we don’t follow the highest that we know; if we disregard the last impression that we have; we have to go back and relearn that impression and follow it before we receive more. So, it is important that when we receive an impression that we follow and then if we fulfill it then we will receive more.

“Most men are within a finger’s breadth of being mad.”

— Diogenes, “The Cynic” (412 BC-323 BC)
