Nothingness and Oneness

Giving up identity and being nothing for a while!

Our identity includes self-importance as much as lack of self-belief, ‘I’m useless at x,’ and I've come to observe how my moments improve greatly when I drop it and step into being nothing! My voice sounds better, I'm less scared(if I'm scared!) and freer to dance and be in the present moment.

Giving up “good” and “bad” and replacing it with oneness is part of the leap in evolution that we are experiencing and it is so wonderfully liberating.

Within cosmic oneness our consciousness can metamorphose into being everything and nothing. Indeed we are the space in which consciousness itself arises and all exists. The cosmic mind is limitless, and gratitude, compassion, love and delight are gateways to bathe in and merge with this beautiful blissful state.

Whatever we were told you were e.g. pretty, ugly, strong, weak, good writer, sexy, strange, emotional, fun... are just aspects of being and perhaps of what we have experienced. In the big picture, let's remember that we are everything and nothing on a journey of experiences and consciousness. We are limitless and have the potential to experience so many things depending upon our focus. There is no need any longer to limit oneself to an identity created from past experiences.

One’s ultimate role I feel is to observe and allow the light to be. Look around, observe the light in the now. We have got to give up focusing upon our addictions and aversions for a moment for this to occur. Just drop them to the side for a moment and see where the light actually is. It will always draw us to that which is beneficial for us. Our focus upon it will cause it to grow in our life and thus we will notice it more and more.  

A favourite game

Is to take time regularly to do nothing! If you haven't in a while, please consider inviting yourself now to give this a go for 5 - 15 minutes. In the space of nothing, something will arise. We listen, observe and allow this to guide. If there is a season for nothing, it must be winter, the season of the northern hemisphere.Just look at nature. This is the season for nothing; Winter is perfect for taking it easy, slowness and deep rest and silent rejuvination. Of course there is time in every season and day for this, but especially now if you are in the northern hemisphere,  it is to be honoured and enjoyed!

universal love

The state of Oneness is a state of love, but this can also be described as nothingness, which in a way means beyond the ego.

As we identify with the one love that exists within us, in all living beings, and in the space, we naturally realize our connection with everyone and everything. Magnificent joy and satisfaction arise as the distance between oneself and another evaporates!

Ultimately one is being the true self as one becomes completely open to the now and flow of spirit. In this state, there is no chasing after or running away from anything, there is no limiting ego identity dictating how one is, one simply “is.”

This “being nobody or nothing” is extremely liberating as we are no longer limited by beliefs or thoughts. However, the journey to “becoming nothing” is dependent upon a foundation of loving wholeness of self-acceptance. It has been my experience that self-love and love for life, that is the natural bestowing and receiving of love, are as essential as breathing for this state to occur. I have a lovely meditation that supports this if you are interested. Just send a pm.

The Law of Attraction says

"That which is like unto itself, is drawn. When you say, “Birds of a feather flock together,” you are actually talking about the Law of Attraction. You see the Law of Attraction evidenced in your society when you see that the one who speaks most about illness has illness; when you see that the one who speaks most about prosperity has prosperity.

As you begin to understand—or better stated, as you begin to remember—this powerful Law of Attraction, the evidence of it that surrounds you will be easily apparent, for you will begin to recognize the exact correlation between what you have been thinking about and what is actually coming into your experience. Nothing merely shows up in your experience. You attract it—all of it. No exceptions." 

Jerry, Esther and Abraham Hicks

Being nothing enables what truly is,beyond the busy mind and limited beliefs of human being to arise. It invites the love and power of life to communicate with us, be us, move through us and shape us. In 2017 I have some great visions and wonderful work projects to focus on, but when I'm not working, I plan on doing nothing more! To the fun of life, being nothing and allowing the love of the universe to guide and move through us, I wish  this for the lightworkers of the world. I bow, salute and send you love. 

If you are interested in more of this, please get in contact and consider booking into the Soul’s Goals. Our next workshop is taking place on Saturday the 21st of January in Dublin city centre. They also take place on line over a series of weeks and months. I'd love to hear from you as we know it is energising, fun and powerful to work together! Click here for facebook event page

If you are eager to experience more

Consider taking time each day to do nothing- and see what arises over the next few days and weeks. Meditate, walk in nature in nature, draw pictures, play music and see what happens. Create this empty space where ideas can arise in the moment and be fulfilled. It is great if you have a few hours, but 3 minutes is even effective. If it is uncomfortable, be willing to feel the pain. Welcome it in. See if it has a gift or insight for you. Starting writing and see what comes to you. Breathe deeply and calmly. The soul can unknot any imbalance in the energy body this way, and bring information to your awareness. The pain is energy and with slow calm breathing it can often come back into harmony. Feel free to contact a healer, councillor, therapist if you feel you would benefit from professional support. That’s why we are here! We are here for each other :)

We are One, guided by the same light and in nothingness we naturally play and thrive.Thank you.

Earth Fest! 2016

earth festJust back from a great weekend at the Earth Fest held this past weekend, 22- 24 April on a lovely organic farm in Slane. Designed by the wonderful Enda and Masha this event celebrates Earth Day and is a transofrmational festival where there is no litter, composting, education talks with a focus on good music, heart connection, sustainability and living  in harmony with the Earth. 

I went up with some lovely friends and had the pleasure of meeting great people, openness, warm hearts and hanging out and sleep (warmly thankfully) in nature. On Sunday woke up to dancing bearthe sound of the birds singing and felt my aura relax and expand with each tweet as if the bird song was massaging my energy body! As I walked through the field I heard a voice inside me sing, 'I am happy with myself as I am,' nothing like a bit of self-acceptance! 

Congratulations to Enda and Masha and all involved for creating a great festival and a lovely start to the festivaling of 2016!

Communal food, three stages, great electronic music, live music, performances, bands, John Spillane, kindness, chai (thank you Keshet & co!) and a fair bit of beautiful sunshine and fires created a lovely vibe.

Orla healing outdoors I was able to bring the healing table too and offer some treatments. 

 I had the fortune of giving some friends, Nicola and Rafael, plus the wonderful talented Niall Mac Giolla Rua a lift and hearing his gig on Friday night. 

 Was great also to meet up with festival friends, especially Marcus, Andy and Jim :) 

 Meet new friends, or more like recognise and remember old soul friends.

I even got to sing a song on stage on Friday night with Niall Mac G R! It is good to step outside the comfort zone, hey Niall if you are reading this; am looking forward to next time! I also had the opportunity to sing one of my own songs. Ok it was what it was (!), pretty simple, but it's a start and it is going in the direction of delight, the soul's goal and this is worth celebrating! The next Earth fest Orla and Niallday I got to do some mantra singing to the electronic ambient sounds of Rafael Lima. I'm not going to lie, my sound making into a mic was all a bit dodgy, but hey I know it's only going to get better! Thank you life for these opportunities and beautiful people.

Thank you also to all involved. I loved sitting out doors under the beautiful sky and chatting.

Nicola nad Niall Earth fest I have some pictures, so please check back in a day or so and hopefully i'll have them up on this page!

 Looking forward to many more gatherings, healing sessions and gigs this summer!

 Peace and love, EArth fest orla piano
