This thing about separating people into two must come to an end. If you think of people as them and you, one group superior and another inferior, this is separating yourself from others and others from you. You are pushing people apart from your heart.
Yes, I understand that the words you and them and such expressions are a manner of speech and built into language and may be awkward to get around. Yet there are times when you can do this, and it is easy and it works. You only have to think of it. There is no they. All are One. All are One with Me, why not One with you?
Do not put yourself and your ideas up on a pedestal. Be careful about putting yourself up as an authority, that you know better than others, or there is only one way to think, and it is yours.
As you give advice to someone and you continue to say: “This is how you do it,” you are tending to put yourself up as an authority. You are saying: “I know how this is to be done. You don’t. I am a great authority, and you’re not.”
Better to use the word we than you. This identifies yourself and another as One. You are not coming on as though you are the wise one and the other is the one who needs to be advised.
Say we, and you will see that you are culturing brotherhood. You are standing on the same ground. You may or may not know better than another. Now I am giving you a technique for finding yourself on the same side as another and not superior nor in charge. Two human hearts join in an understanding. It is a good idea for you to observe this.
You notice I am saying you, and I am saying I, and, yes, I am teaching you, and, yes, I am assuming that I come from a vaster field of understanding, and I know that you are likely to hear what I say and welcome what I coach you on. Now I will say We. We can assume that you, here as One, grant Me your audience. We can assume that you come before My eyes with an open heart and ears ready to hear. We can assume that you come here to gain, and that gain you will.
Yes, when you think of it, when you can, transform separating terms into Oneness of Heart.
And, yes, even as I advise you, I sit you on My lap, so to speak. Even as I advise you, the radiance of Our love surrounds Us. Oneness is uppermost in My Being. Yes, I come to Myself to learn in the form of you.
In dealing with so-called others, say we and so you embrace. We is a form of handshake. Let’s shake hands that We and everyone are here together for the purpose of growing to Oneness.
This course is a course in Unity that I am giving right now. This is a course in tone. This is a course in love, beloveds. It is more loving to embrace than take positions across from each other. The Truth is that We are not across from each other, so, in speaking from mutuality, We are closer to the Truth of Our One Being.
And this is something that We can all do and do right away. The use of the words you and I separate. The use of the word we brings Oneness to the fore. We are speaking of the difference between pulling hearts together or pushing hearts away from each other. Let Us all join in the Kingdom of One. Let Us unite. Let Us embrace. Together is better than apart.
