The Whole Enchilada

By Jerome Dechant

Complete being is realized in the acknowledgement and embodiment of oneness.
Most beings come into human physical existence and it dawn on us “Me, and not me.”  “You are not me, that is not me,” are ingrained, so much that we form an identity around that concept which colors our beingness through experiencing separation and individualization.  This opens avenues for infinite possibilities in diversity and forms around our perception/awareness as separate beings in an infinite universe.

This is totally immersive to the point in experiencing beingness; the idea to pursue the possibilities presented by the concept of Oneness can easily be disregarded and/or overlooked.  Experiencing beingness from the Oneness perspective is a different experience than the “me, not me” experience.  In this recognition:  the “me, not me,” is contained, experienced and realized within the one being.
Concepts like good and bad are related to the “me, not me” perspective, so are light and dark separated and identified as separate “things” or “expressions” with opposite polarities and therefore different. 

In the pursuit of goodness one may so identify with that which is perceived as “good” that a great divide is built up between “good” and “bad”, Light and Dark.  And within this separation, there are degrees of quality of “goodness” and “badness” where the supreme goodness is seen as holy and divine while the supreme badness is seen as depraved and evil.  There is a spectrum of experiencing upon this scale of extremes where one is always experiencing some degree of “goodness/badness”. These experiences are defined by society; promoted or condemned depending on how off center the experiencing is.
When one is on this ride, it is much like a rollercoaster ride with lots of ups and downs, turns and bumps which sometimes make us scream and other times make us laugh.  It is all too obvious; in order to experience the ride, one has to get on the ride and go through the experiencing from the rider’s perspective. The rider’s experiencing is contained within the Oneness experiencing as a part of oneness, not the whole of it.  The Oneness perspective includes awareness being the rider, the ride, the environment in which the ride is, all of it, simultaneously and constantly.

While the rider experiencing being is dynamic in scope, it pales in scope when the broader complete oneness experiencing is embraced.  This may suggest one experiencing is more favorable than the other, yet I suggest they are both equal in value and worth experiencing. 
What if it isn’t an “either or choice”, what if it is an “and” choice.  What if one can fully and immersively experience riding from the individual perspective while also fully and immersively experiencing the Oneness experience as well.  This is a paradigm shift in awareness in being!

Whatever our current experiencing is, it is a perfect unfolding moment by moment.  It isn’t better or worse while at the same time it is better or worse. (This means the oneness perspective is all inclusive.)  We are where we are on the ride; we are experiencing this moment right now the only way we know because this moment right now is the moment we are present in.  Whether we like it or not is irrelevant to our experiencing this presence although whether we like it or not colors our experiencing.
When embracing Oneness perspective we find within this experiencing our own supreme divinity and supreme evility at the same time, and understand both extremes are equally essential expressions within oneness where we cannot have one without the equal possibility of the other.

So, I accept completely that I am supremely divine.  I also accept completely that I am supremely evil too.  Both are potentials in extreme, that is to say, as an individual, I don’t have to identify with one or the other, yet which ever potential I lean towards colors my life experiencing to the degree I tend towards that direction of expression.
There is a predominate thought being promoted which states that we are divine beings, supremely perfect and complete, which is absolutely correct.  The part that is often intentionally, or unintentionally overlooked or hidden from view, is that within this perfect completeness, we are also supremely imperfect as well.

Remember oneness is ALL inclusive.
