Separation

  • Apparent disconnection from Divinity/God/Source.
  • Apparent disconnection from life, oneself, or others.
  • The state of believing in disconnection from Divinity/God/Source.
  • The state of believing in disconnection from life, oneself, or others.
  • The state of believing in finitude.
  • The belief that separation is possible leads to the delusory experience of finitude.
  • The idea of separation is not actual separation. Actual separation is impossible.
  • Separation is the only idea that cannot be expressed, cannot be actualized, can never be so. Only separation is inexpressible.
  • The original mental illness is believing the idea of separation.
  • When separation is believed, everything is experienced as being separate. When separation is not believed, everything is known to be one.
  • The apparent existence of deluded beings is proof that the idea of separation is believed.
  • The apparent existence of bodies is proof that the idea of separation is believed.

Sayings:

  • “All beliefs, ideas, and systems predicated on separation are false and destructive. What is false destroys itself. Apparent separation destroys itself.”
  • “If you believe separation anywhere, you experience separation everywhere.”
  • “To believe in separation from anyone or anything is to believe in separation from THE SUPREME.”
  • “If separation can be said to have a purpose, it is to strengthen the knowing of oneness.”
