We are One is a thought-provoking book that will challenge the reader to understand a deeper part of themselves. The author reveals her intimate battle with fear and how she overcame it to now give hope to others. This book will take you on a journey from darkness to light while encouraging you to understand that there is light at the end of the tunnel. Complemented with poetry illustrations, this book will change the way you look at yourself, others, and the world.
“We Are One” is about my journey to finding self, which revealed to me a love story. Since ultimately God is best summed up through the words “love God and love your neighbour.” a realization became very clear to me.
We learn to love ourselves by understanding love, which is God and that is how we truly know how to love one another.
That idea prompted me to dwell on how the lives of Adam and Eve must have been. They lived like a child would have, completely naive of the outside world outside of their perfect garden. The garden is like a heaven on Earth. They sinned and a child was born of sin, which continued the human race as it is. Over the course of time, they populated the whole world and in our sin, we did a lot of evil things to one another to create a chaotic world in which we live today.
I believe it is still the sixth day that God created and this day will not be completed until we have learned what the serpent said that we would know, “all things as God does, both good and evil.”
I believe, we have to experience to know the difference between good and evil. Today, I believe, the Jews and Gentiles have a relationship like a man and a woman who struggle to find the complement in their differences. When they fall in love with one another with God’s divine love they understand the complement they have just like a man and a woman who fall in love and eventually get married.
I believe it is now the end of the sixth day that God created, and a new child will be born soon. When we all understand, good and evil or history, through our understanding, everyone will know his name.
The book is a realization that learning love is learned from God, who is opposite for us to know; an image. The deeper message contained in it is a message of peace, unity, and love based on the complement of the connection of two completely different identities.
In The Garden
He is life,
A great, mystical tree,
Symbolic in nature,
She is root,
Hidden, deep below,
With a foundation enduring,
She is a mystery to know.
Combined is the essence of Him.
Revealed is the depth of love Divine,
Captured, perfectly, over a history of time.
Good and bad,
Back to their own identity.
As it was in the garden,
The One tree of serenity.
