One Body, Individualized

There is one body.
It appears as many,
But really it is one.

The body of the Universe,
The form of Cosmic Intelligence,
The Temple of God:
One body, one manifestation,
Individualized.

O, how we think we’re our own!
Independent,
Self-sufficient,
Off the grid,
Living off the land…
“My body, my decision.
My body, my self!”

Except it’s not!
It is The Body,
You are The Body,
Undivided,
In divid U al,
You ni verse, Spirit, God
And all manifestations
Of Self!

How callous,
Selfish,
Disconnected,
Narrow-minded,
Limiting
TO think “I am myself.
I am my identity,
My body,
My gender,
My roles,
And I govern my life!”

I do not govern anything!
I am complete within myself
Only
Because I am One with God.
I am a microcosm
Of the macrocosm
That is All there is!

And for this,
For dependence,
For One Body,
For Life,
Love,
Cosmic intelligence,
Creation;
Created
By One, as One,
For One Life individualized:
I give thanks!
–And so it is!
