The Third Part: Our Connection to Oneness

Steven Sarsfield

In ancient times, the spiritual part of life was abundant. The world's great religions were seeded by the spiritual deeds of that time. In the past 1,000 years or so, however, many religious institutions shifted away from spiritual wisdom toward unwavering dogma. The vestiges of older spiritual ways, now locked away in monasteries, secret societies, and indigenous lineages, are barely intact.

We are now in a time when much of humanity is either rejecting or clinging to religious dogma. For some, religion, as practiced today, has been bled dry of spiritual meaning by greed and politics. Others hold onto their beliefs to the exclusion of any alternative. How can this book help?

Those who cling with hope to historic narratives shrouded in mystery, diluted by time, and transformed by special interests can learn to use their steadfast willpower to allow universal truths to guide them. Those who have been disillusioned by obscure references, priestly decadence, and otherworldly hypotheses can find the peace they long for in the refuge of their own inner wisdom. And many who don't believe in the doctrines they've been exposed to can start to believe in their own divine nature.

We can all open to the eternal spirit everyone shares and, as a result, see the truth of non-separation in each other. As a united people of Earth, we will stop the wars and heal the sick. The Third Part offers a small push down a long road for a humanity destined for enlightenment.

This collection of short essays is intended to help you have a better relationship with your true self, not by following some prescribed dogma but by uncovering your deepest motivations. The process described in these essays led me to an inconceivably different life than I had ever imagined.

About the Author

Sarsfield, Steven: - Steven is a lifelong artist and spiritual seeker who has traversed a diverse landscape of experiences. From humble beginnings in inner-city Pittsburgh to serving in the Navy and meeting the challenges of raising five children, his life has been a tapestry of contrasts. He transitioned from the time-crunched world of truck driving to the precision of engineering and from the bustling city life to the tranquility of Hawaii. Born with an innate love of sailing, Steven raced yachts and later shared his love of sailing with children, teaching them to sail with a loving and understanding heart. In each phase, he has found a unique way to infuse spirituality into his daily life, adding a deeper meaning to his journey. Steven's lifelong exploration of spiritual and religious meaning is evident in his unique approach to the metaphysical world. The Third Part, his personal interpretation of the spiritual realm and its accessibility, is a testament to his independent spirit. It is a guide for those like him who prefer to forge their own spiritual path rather than conform to traditional religious institutions. Steven lives in the rainforests of Hawaii near an active volcano where he writes, paints, bakes, takes care of his garden and home, works as a substitute teacher, and attends weekly ecstatic dances. His poems and short stories have addressed history as well as novelty, the unexpected, and the truth. The walls of his house are covered with his murals and small paintings. Steven's approach to writing, cooking, art, and dance all come from a love of life, the willingness to take chances, and faith in the reality of intention.
