The ONE Thing

C182666 mHere’s one thing we all get caught up in from time to time – The ONE Thing.

What’s the ONE thing that would make your life different, better, more complete? That’s The ONE Thing we get hung up on.

What we don’t notice is that, even when we get that one thing, it’s anti-climactic. It really didn’t solve all the problems we thought it would and its “oneness” wears away.

Whomever first said that you take yourself wherever you go was a genius. This person knew that The ONE Thing wasn’t going to change you. The drunk that hits a big jackpot on the slot machines is just going to get inebriated with a more expensive brand of alcohol.

No thing is The ONE Thing. That means that no thing will change you for more than a minute. I know the excitement of a brand new camera arriving by an overnight carrier. I also know that the camera will not make me a better photographer.

The ONE Thing is another version of “When I have ________, I’ll be happy.” Did you ever look back and do an assessment on The ONE Things? If you did, you would have noticed that they weren’t a cure-all for what ails you.

The ONE Thing is a mindset that we’ve been conditioned to and we would do well to outgrow it.

There is no job, relationship, amount of money or any one thing that will make you whole. What we don’t realize is that we are already whole but have been convinced that we are missing The One Thing.

I am not saying that The ONE Thing won’t add to your enjoyment of life, it probably will. What it won’t do is complete you because you are already complete. When you seek your completeness outside of you, you overlook the fact that it’s already within you.

That’s why inner discovery is the most productive adventure. Each time you remove a layer of conditioning, you get closer to your completeness. The ONE Thing is a layer of conditioning, that once removed, will give you a better inside view.

Don’t give up on your worldly desires; they do add spice to our lives. Just don’t think, even for one minute, that it will complete you. It can’t and it won’t.

If you like mantras, try this one on for size: I am complete. It will get you to focus on your completeness rather than on the fairy tale that you are missing something.

If you take away ONE Thing from this posting, let it be this: I am already one and no thing will add to me.

All the best,

John
