"You are all alone, surrounded by all the help you will ever need." ~Wayneji
Once you see that there is only One (less than actually), then you know that everything that is happening is perfect because there is only One player Playing … looking like many. This is called in sports “In the Zone.” Where one becomes empty of their individual self and Aware that they are not doing it … it is being done through them. Received a comment from a friend about the word/meaning “Team” the folioing is what came up around that as well as the article that came as the reminder:
Article on being Empty...
Mark used to say that sports were his Spirituality and that if one paid attention they would Hear and See it too. It took quite sometime to really start to see what he was pointing to. The other day at the dentist there was an article read a magazine that had LeBron James on the cover and upon reading the last two paragraphs of the article - thought "what a beautiful way to describe another human being," in this case (being LeBron) and the Spirituality that Mark would point to was Heard. :o)))))”
One of the clearest ways to see that one is on a “Team” of One (not individual) is to first See and acknowledge how utterly and completely alone One Is (One without a Second). You can spend years attempting not to See this, by searching for a “team” to be on.
However, if you are willing to go into the Core of Aloneness, then the window/door opens up to see that there is only One Team one can ever be on ... and you are on/in It. Everyone is on it and no one can be kicked off. That Seeing ... begins to allow one to see that we are all
working together on the same Team … beyond all appearances, beliefs, dogmas, religions, clubs, societies, nationalities … there is only One Team and we are ALL on it.
Funny enough, this last weekend there were repeated attempted to watch a movie called “Cloud Atlas.” It is a 3 hour movie and things kept coming up it kept having to be restarted. What was revealed in the movie … and is such a great pointing to what is being shared here, is that we all keep showing up for one another. We are all on the same Team ... because there is only One Team.
The sayings “you are only as strong as your weakest link” or “wherever you go there you are” are Great sayings and stand the tests of Time because they are True Pointings. However, these sayings have been misconstrued because not many venture deep enough into the “unknown” of their Self. They don’t go all the way to the Core of Being to discover that there is only One (actually less than One … less than Zero … but this is the limitation of words and only can one Know … through Self-Discovery). If one does not go to the Core of Being and discover that there is only One (less than), then they believe they are separate and although believing one is separate doesn't make them separate and doesn’t get them off the Team (the Team of One ... they do not believe they are on it - because it appears that there is more than One.
There is another saying, “You are all alone, surrounded by all the help you need.” This is the closest pointing to the Truth of the True Team you are on. Everyone has had their moment of being all alone. Feeling they have no one to turn to, no where to go, no one that would understand … these moments are great gifts in revealing what cannot be seen or understood by the mind. If you can look back on any moment that arrived to reveal to you that you are all Alone … you can see that something showed up for you. Something did Hear you. Someone did understand. Otherwise you would not be reading this right now. And if you went all the way … to the Core of Being … then you Know who always shows up … the Self. :o)
One is wise not to run from the “fear” of being Alone … it is your True Natural State. It is the fear/running from that that keeps you from Knowing who you Are.
At the end of the day and at the beginning, the best one can do is face the fear of being alone, do not run from it, but let it come to you, let it have you; the fear of not having enough, the fear of losing, the fear of not being good enough, the fear that you are not supported or taken care of. And truly the only actual fear, which is the fear of death. When these fears begin to be faced, not run from but just allowed, then you will begin to see what has been Carrying you all along and worry/fear may still show up for you, but you won’t care. Team of One (less than).
