Practicing Being Unitive

The Practice of Being Unitive: Realigning The Inner Self

A human being has the inherent capacity to live life through an array of mental states - being emotive, being cognitive, being reactive, and ultimately, being unitive. Being unitive involves a harmony of mind, body, and spirit, creating a well-spring of wisdom, serenity, and perspective. But, like an unseen destination, we lose this center in our interactions and reactions. So, how does one practice being unitive and reactivate that unitive center? Much like exercising to keep your body in shape, mental exercises, self-care rituals, and specific mindfulness practices can help one revert to their unitive center.

Firstly, the pursuit of mindfulness helps reinforce a unitive approach. Techniques such as breath-based meditation, body scans, or mindful walking provide a ground for being unitive by drawing attention to the present moment. Observing sensations, thoughts, and emotions as transient elements allow an individual to remain unreactive and focused.

Being unitive also involves seeking alignment within oneself. Journaling is a potent tool for this, enabling one to reconcile their thoughts and feelings, while reinforcing awareness and a holistic perspective. Similar effects can be gained from activities like yoga or Tai Chi, that inherently promote a unity of mind and body.

Equally crucial is cultivating compassion - towards oneself and others. Small acts of kindness, offering forgiveness, and expressing gratitude are potent practices that foster connection and unity. Communicating openly and empathetically with others nurtures an external environment conducive to being unitive.

Engaging in activities that bring joy and happiness can act as an excellent reminder of unity. Creative hobbies like painting, dancing, or music soothe the mind and bring one closer to their center. Similarly, the immersion in nature through hikes or gardening aids in realizing the interconnectedness of all life, inducing a state of unity.

Finally, nourishing your physical body plays a significant role in achieving a unitive state. Consuming healthy, wholesome foods and keeping active with regular exercise creates an internal balance that reverberates onto the mental and emotional self. Likewise, ensuring adequate rest and relaxation rejuvenates one's whole being and creates conditions conducive to a unitive state.

Unifying your mental, physical, and emotional states isn't just about introspection but extending that unity to connect with others and the environment around us. While every person's journey is unique, these exercises offer a path to uncover and realize the profound inner unity and strength within us. Like muscles trained and honed over time in the gym, being unitive can be cultivated, becoming an innate way of living. In that state of being unitive, every action resonates with love, compassion, understanding, and holistic health, radiating positivity onto ourselves, others and the world around us. Peace of mind, harmony and love are just around the corner every time we move back to oneness.
