Yes. At The One Center we see Essence as the indispensable quality of our unique existence that is a mirror of the One universal life force. Yes, there is multiplicity, but only One divine reality from which all else flows. We hold the belief that without the Essence we would not exist.
Essence is breath, Spirit, a divine quality, prana, qi, or our own personal fingerprint. The One Center looks forward to witnessing and appreciating the individual beauty of each person who walks through our doors. We hold the belief that we are all here to learn from each other and share in the collective journey, creating an exciting and profound experience. Here is an inspiring quote by the beloved Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh illustrating this point.
“You are me, and I am you. Isn’t it obvious that we “inter-are”?
You cultivate the flower in yourself, so that I will be beautiful.
I transform the garbage in myself, so that you will not have to suffer.
I support you; you support me.
I am in this world to offer you peace; you are in this world to bring me joy.”
The One Center facilitates this co-creative relationship through an interactive process and from a container of love, honesty, and a curiosity to know YOU. Then our individual and collective essences become more pure, honest, and free so that we live fully in Truth and Grace.
