5 star must reading.   [The following is what I highlighted during my read of this excellent book -- I recommend it on my Top-ten List of Peace resources.  My purpose in providing them is to interest you, the reader, and hope that you will obtain and read the complete work.  To properly understand the highlights, you need to read the book to put them in the proper context.]

 

Introduction

 

·         …we understand perfectly well that things are not the way they “should be”…

·         Be the miracle for which you pray, be the strength for which you call out, be the love for which you yearn, and be the change you wish to see.

·         Be it…

·         Be all that you seek for this world and end your at last, knowing that everything for which you looked, you always possessed, but simply could not experience until you gave it away.

·         This third and final part of the trilogy will focus, I am told, on the largest questions facing man.  Concepts dealing with other realms, other dimensions, and how the whole intricate weave fits together.

·         The progress has been:

Individual Truths

Global Truths

Universal Truths

·         Truth is truth, and it can neither be proven, not disproven.  It simply is.

·         So long as you are still worried about what others think of you, you are owned by them.

·         Only when you require no approval from outside yourself can you own yourself.

·         You teach what you have to learn.

·         Do what you can do.  Then let it rest.

·         Fear and guilt,  are your only enemies.  Love and awareness are you true friends.

·         Do you see how you can block yourself?  Do you see how you can sabotage yourself?  Do you see how you can stop yourself in your tracks just when you are on to something good?  You’ve been doing this all your life.

·         ….you will not understand this divine doctrine about love until you understand that My highest choice for Me is the same as your highest choice for you.  And that is because you and I are one.

·         You see, the Divine Doctrine is also a Divine Dichotomy, and that is because life itself is a dichotomy – an experience within which two apparently contradictory truths can exist in the same time.  In this case, the apparently contradictory truths can exist in the same space at the same time.

·         In this case, the apparently contradictory truths are separate, and you and I are one. The same apparent contradiction appears in the relationship between you and everyone else.

·         …it’s all contextual.

·         Yes.  All of life is.  What is “best” depends on who you are, and who you seek to be.

·         I am all of these things – the all of Everything – and I cannot experience any part of My Self without experiencing All of My Self.

·         I cannot choose to be magnificent unless there is something to choose from.  Some part of Me to choose the part of Me which is magnificent.

·         So too, is it with you.

·         THIS IS THE DIVINE DICHOTOMY.   This is the Divine Mystery which, until now, only the most sublime minds could understand.  I have revealed it for you here in a way that more can understand.

·         I have everything I choose to have right now – including a complete understanding of God – yet I will not experience that I have until know that I do.

·         To “know that you know, act as if you do.”

·         ..the Be –Do- Have – paradigm…

·         First you “be” the thing called “happy” (or “knowing,”  or “wise” or “compassionate” or whatever), then you start “doing” things from this place of beingness – and soon you discover that what you are doing winds up bringing you the things you’ve always wanted to “have.”

·         …this creative process.

·         …work with, rather than against, the creative power of the universe.

·         In life, you do not have to do anything.

·         It is all a question of what you are being.

·         Deciding ahead of time what you choose to be produces that in your experience.

·         Natural Law requires the body, mind and spirit to be united in thought, word, and action for the process of creation to work.

·         Whatever you choose for yourself, give to another.

·         The very act of your giving something away causes you to experience that you have it to give away.

·         …once you start “being” a thing, you’ve engaged the gears of the most powerful creation machine in the universe – your Divine Self.

·         This is the greatest secret of  life.

·         …all objective phenomena are drawn to you subconsciously; all events are created by you unconsciously; every person, place, or thing in your life was drawn to you by you – was Self-created, if you will – to provide you with the exact and perfect conditions, the perfect opportunity, to experience what you next wish to experience as you go about the business of evolving.

·         Nothing can happen ….in your life which is not a precisely perfect opportunity for you to heal something, create something, or experience something that you wish to heal, create, or experience in order to be Who You Really Are.

·         …if you want your life to settle down, to stop bringing you such a wide variety of experiences, there’s a way to do that. Simply stop changing your mind so often about Who You Are, and Who You Choose to Be.

·         The design of your life – the people, places, and events in it – have all been perfectly created by the perfect creator of perfection itself:  you …And Me…in, as, and through you.

·         Now we can work together in this co-creative process consciously or unconsciously.  You can move through life aware, or unaware.  You can walk your path asleep, or awake.  You choose.

·         If all you desired is what your soul desired, everything would be very simple.

·         That is because…the choices of spirit are always the highest choices.

·         Yet you are not only a spirit. You are a Triune Being made up of body, mind, and spirit.

·         …and they by no means always coincide.

·         Ultimately, all thoughts are sponsored by love or fear.  This is the great polarity.  This is the primal duality.  Everything, ultimately, breaks down to one of these.  All thoughts, ideas, concepts, understandings, decisions, choices, and actions are based in one of these.  And, in the end, there is really only one.  Love.

·         In truth, love is all there is.  Even fear is an outgrowth of love, and when used effectively, express love.

·         And so it is that the natural emotions, when expressed, produce unnatural reactions and responses.  And most natural emotions are repressed in most people.  Yet these are your friends.  These are your gifts.  These are your divine tools, with which to craft your experience.

·         Why are these emotions repressed in most people?

·         Because they were taught by their parents, and their parents were told by theirs.

·         What is going on is that you have the wrong people doing the parenting.

·         No one is more ill-equipped to raise children than young parents.

·         Most of you gain the wisdom, the patience, the understanding, and the love to be wonderful parents after your parenting years are over.

·         Child raising was mean to be an activity of the elders, whose minds are well developed and strong.

·         You will, as a society, always be inhibited about that over which you are embarrassed; always be dysfunctional with behaviors which have been repressed, and always act out violently in protest of being made to feel shame about that over which you know in your heart you should never have felt shame at all.

·         …a huge amount of the anger in the human species might be sexually related – deep –seated rage over having to repress basic and natural physical instincts, interests, and urges.

·         …all of this - has emerged from a single thought; that those who bear children, bear also the sole responsibility for raising them.

·         But if the people who have children aren’t responsible for raising them, who is?

·         The whole community.  With special emphasis on the elders.

·         Your younger years were never meant to be for truth-teaching, but for truth-gathering.  How can you teach children a truth you haven’t yet gathered?

·         …you will be searching, and experimenting, and finding, and failing, and forming and reforming your truth, your idea about yourself, until you are half a century on this planet, or near to it.

·         Then, you may begin at last to settle down, and settle in, with your truth.  And probably the biggest truth on which you’ll agree is that there is no constant truth at all; that truth, like life itself, is an changing thing, a growing thing, an evolving thing…

·         ….it’s not just parenting you’re doing with an ineffective model, but your whole way of living.

·         You’ve moved away from each other.  You’ve torn apart your families, disassembled your smaller communities in favor if huge cities.

·         Worse than moving away from your elders, you’ve pushed them aside.  Marginalized them.  Taken their power away.  And even resented them.

·         …if your elders aren’t contributing, it is because you have not allowed them to contribute.

·         As you have both individualized and toughened your society, you have lost much of its richness and resource.  Now you are without both, with too many of you living in emotional and psychological poverty and depletion.

·         First, recognize and acknowledge that it’s real.  So many of you are living in denial.

·         …if yo truly want to change things, I hope you will just allow yourself to hear Me.

·         The time has come for truth telling, plain and simple.  Are you ready?

·         Truth is often uncomfortable.  It is only comforting to those who do not wish to ignore it.  Then, truth becomes not only comforting, but inspiring.

·         There is some good reason to be upbeat, to feel optimistic.  I observe that things have begun to change.  There’s more emphasis among your species on creating community, and building extended families, than ever in recent years.

·         …this third book, is about building a newer world, creating a new reality.

·         You have been living too long…in a prison of your own devise.  It is time to set yourself free.

·         In an earlier part of your history, you lived on this planet in a matriarchal society.  Then there was a shift, and the patriarchy emerged.

·         …both men and women are damned to repeat their own mistakes in an endless cycle of self-inflicted misery until one side or the other gets that life is not about power, but about strength.  And until both see that it’s not about separation, but unity.  For it is in the unity that inner strength exists, and in the separation that it dissipates, leaving one feeling weak, and powerless – and hence, struggling for power.

·         Heal the rift between you, end the illusion of separation, and you shall be delivered back to the source of your inner strength.  That is where you will find true power.

·         Power comes from inner strength.  Inner strength does not come from raw power.  In this, most of the world has it backwards.

·         Power without inner strength is an illusion.  Inner strength without unity is  a lie.

·         This lie is the genesis of all wars, and all the class struggles that lead to war; of all animosity between races and genders, and all the power struggles that lead to animosity; of all personal trials and tribulations, and all the internal struggles that lead  to tribulations.

·         Know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.

·         There is no separation.  Not from each other, not from God, and not from anything that is.  This truth I will repeat over and over on these pages.

·         Act as if you were separate from nothing, and no one, and you will heal your world tomorrow.

·         This is the greatest secret of all time.  It is the answer for which man has searched for millennial.  It is the solution for which he has worked, the revelation for which he has prayed.

·         Act as if you were separate from nothing, and no one, and you will heal your world.

·         Understand that it is about power with, not power over.

·         The idea that “might is right” or that “power is strength,”  was born in your male-created theological myths.

·         What’s going on is that your soul yearns for the highest experience  of itself it can imagine.  It came here for that purpose – to realize itself (that is, make itself real) in its experience.

·         …the use of physical pleasure as an avenue to remembering Who You Are us achieved by raising up, through the body, the basic energy of all life.

·         This is the energy which you sometimes call “sexual energy,” and it is raised up along the inner column of your being, until it reaches the area you cask the Third Eye.  This is the are just behind the forehead between and slightly above the eyes.  As you raise the energy, you cause it to course all through your body.  It is like an inner orgasm.

·         You literally “think it up” the inner pathway of what you have called your “chakras.”

·         Once the life energy is raised up repeatedly, one acquires a taste for this experience, just as one acquires a hunger for sex.

·         This is the sacred rhythm of all life.

·         …all of life is S.E.X. – Synergistic Energy eXchange.

·         My purpose is to evolve, not to condemn: to grow, not to die; to experience, not to fail to experience.  My purpose is to Be, not to cease to Be.

·         I have no way to separate Myself from you- or anything else.  “Hell” is simply not knowing this.  “Salvation” is knowing and understanding it completely.  You are now saved.  You needn’t worry about what’s going to happen to you “after death” anymore.

·         …the reason you do not stop creating when you die is that you don’t ever die.  You cannot.  For you are life itself.  And life cannot be life.  Therefore you cannot die.

·         The soul remembers in the next life what it would have been well to remember in this life – that all effect is created by thought, and that manifestation is a result of intention.

·         Thought control is the highest form of prayer.  Therefore, think only on good things, and righteous.  Dwell not in negativity and darkness.  And even in moments when things look bleak –especially in those moments – see only perfection, express only gratefulness, and then imagine only what manifestation of perfection you choose next.

·         In this formula is found tranquility.  In this process is found peace. In this awareness id found joy.

·         …life is all a matter of perspective. If you continue to see this truth, you will begin to understand the macro reality of God.  And you will have unlocked a secret of the whole universe:  All of it is the same thing.

·         This is what the soul realizes at the moment of what you call “death.”  It is simply a change in perspective.  You see more, so you understand more.

·         After death, you are no longer limits in your understanding.

·         …if you can remember this truth – your perspective creates your thoughts, and your thoughts create everything -–and if you can remember it before you leave the body, not after, your whole life will change.

·         …the way to control your thoughts is to change your perspective.

·         If you imagined that the controlling and directing of your thoughts is the highest form of prayer, you would think only on good things, and righteous.  You would dwell not in negativity and darkness, though you may be immersed in it.  And in moments when things look bleak  - perhaps especially in those moments – you would see only perfection.

·         I am giving you tools. With these tools you can change your life.

·         Condemn not, therefore, those aspects of life which you disagree.  Seek instead to change them, and the conditions that made them possible.

·         Behold the darkness, yet curse it not.  Rather, be a light unto the darkness, and so transform it.  Let your light so shine before men, that those who stand in the darkness will be illumined by the light of your being, and all of you will see, at last, Who You Really Are.

·         Be a Bringer of the Light.  For your light can do more than illuminate your own path.  Your light can be the light which truly lights the world.

·         The world waits for you.  Heal it.  Now.  In the place where you are.  There is much you can do.

·         …what happens is whatever you want to have happen.  You create your own reality.

·         Always in life you have before you three choices:

  1. You may allow your uncontrolled thoughts to create The Moment.
  2. You may allow your creative consciousness to create The Moment.
  3. You may allow the collective consciousness to create The Moment.

·         It may, therefore, be wise to seek beings of high consciousness.  I cannot overemphasize the importance of the company you keep.

·         Those whose only desire is to know the eternal truth of All That Is, to understand the great mysteries, to experience the grandest reality, do so.

·         …you are a divine creature, divinely creating your reality even as you are experiencing it.

·         You may experience the microcosm or the macrocosm.

·         When you reside with the human body, you are experiencing a smaller portion than the whole; that is, a portion of the microcosm (although by no means the smallest portion thereof).  When you reside away from the body (in what some would call the “spirit world”), you have enlarged by quantum leaps your perspective.  You will suddenly seem to know everything; be able to be everything.  You will have a macro cosmic view of things, allowing you to understand that which you do not now understand.

·         What do you choose? 

·         Always, that is the question I will be asking you.  Always, that is the inquiry of the universe.  For the universe knows nothing except how to grant  your foundest wish, your greatest desire.  Indeed, it is doing that every moment, every day.

·         …if you wish to experience your spirit being larger than that, being in more than one place at one time, you may do that as well. Indeed, you may experience your spirit as being anywhere you wish, any “time.”

·         On earth it is also true that of you desire the same thing.  You desire peace.  You desire prosperity.  You desire joy.  You desire fulfillment.  You desire satisfaction and self-expression in your work, love in your life, health in your body.  You all desire the same thing.

·         You think this is a coincidence?  It is not. It is the way life works.

·         ..while you all desire the same thing, you all have different ideas about how to go about having it.  So you’re all going in different directions, seeking the same thing!

·         It is these differing ideas you have that produce your differing results.  These ideas might be called your Sponsoring Thoughts.  I have spoken to you of this before…in book 1.

·         This state of having no reason to say No is the state in which I reside at all times.

·         …if you say that you cannot be in two places at once, then you cannot be.  But if you say that you can be anywhere you wish with the speed of your thought, and can even make yourself manifest in physical form in more than one place at any given time, then you may do that.

·         Saint and sages of all religions have been said to have done both of these things.  Does it take a very high level of belief?  An extraordinary level of belief?  The level of belief attained by one being in a thousand years?  Yes.  Does that mean it is impossible?

·         You cannot get there.  You can only be there.  This kind of belief – what I would call Complete knowing  - is not something you try to acquire.  In fact, if you are trying to acquire it, you cannot have it.  It is something you simply are.  You simply are this knowing.  You are this being.

·         Such beingness comes out of a state of total awareness.

·         …to move to a state of total awareness.  Then belief will no longer be necessary.  Complete Knowing will work its wonders.

·         There are those on your planet right now who have manifested many of these higher thoughts; including causing physical objects to appear and disappear, making themselves appear and disappear, even “living forever” in the body, or coming back to the body and living again – an all of this, has been made possible because of their faith.  Because of their knowing.

·         …you are all saints and saviors.  Which is the very message they have been bringing you.

·         …you cannot believe it.  You can only know it.

·         Honoring your guru is not giving your power away.  It is getting your power.  For when you honor the guru, when you praise your master teacher, what you say is, “I see you.”  And what you see in another, you can begin to see in yourself.  It is outward evidence of your inner reality.  It is outward proof of your inner truth.  The truth of your being.

·         …all you imagine that you can be, and have been, hurt and damaged and destroyed.

·         Because you imagine damage, you require revenge.

·         This is insanity.  And what you do not see in this insanity is that all people who inflict pain on others assume themselves to be justified.  Every action a person takes is understood by that person to be the right action given what it is they seek and desire.

·         You call their values ‘wrong.”   But who is to say your values are ‘right.”

·         What your society considered  “right” just a few decades ago, you consider “wrong” today.

·         No, the problem is not that you have changed, or that your values have changed.  The problem is that so many of you insist on thinking that the values you now have are the right and perfect ones, and that everyone else should adhere to them.  Some of you have become self-justified and self-righteous.

·         Stick to your beliefs, if that serves you.  Hold tight.  Do not waiver. For your ideas about “right” and “wrong” are your definitions of Who You Are. 

·         Yet do not require that others define themselves according to you terms.  And do not stay so”stuck” in your present beliefs and customs that you halt the process of evolution itself.

·         Actually, you could not do that if you wanted to, for life goes on, with you or without you.

·         All life is motion.

·         Remaining the same, or seeking to, moves against the laws of life.  This is foolish, because in this struggle, life will always win.

·         Allow your deepest truths to be altered.  Alter them yourself, for goodness’ sake.   Because your new idea of Who You Are is where the growth is.

·         Be open, therefore.  Be OPEN.  Don’t close off the possibility of new truth because you have been comfortable with and old one.  Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

·         Yet be not quick to judge another.  Rather, seek to avoid judgment, for another person’s “wrongs” were your “rights” of yestermorn.

·         And those of you who think yourselves to be the evil ones, who think yourselves to be unworthy and irredeemable, I tell you this:  There is not a one among you who id lost forever, nor will there ever be. 

·         For you are all, all, in the process of becoming.  You are all, all,  moving though the experience of evolution. 

·         That is what I am up to.  Through you.

·         Seek to make everyone whose life you touch feel worthy.  Give everyone a sense of their own worthiness as a person, a sense of the true wonder of who they are.  Give this gift, and you will heal the world.

·         Have you ever heard of Mahavatar Babaji?

·         Nothing in this universe occurs by accident.  There is no such thing as an “accident” nor is there any such as “coincidence.”

·         If you experienced what you call the afterlife for one moment, having come to it with your grandest thought about yourself and God, you would smile the biggest smile at their funeral, and let joy fill your heart.

·         …in a state of limited perspective and uncontrolled thoughts, you’ll experience whatever that state brings you, until you don’t want to anymore.  Then you’ll “wake up” – become conscious – and start experiencing yourself creating your reality.

·         Life.  The eternal process.

·         In those moments during which you experience yourself being “revealed” to yourself – whether these are what you call out-of-body experiences, or dreams, or magic moments of wakefulness when you are greeted by crystal clarity – what has happened is that you have simply slipped into “remembering.” You are remembering what you have already created.  And these remembering s can be very powerful.  They can produce a personal epiphany.

·         Once you’ve had such a magnificent experience, it can be very difficult to go back to “real life” in a way that blends well with what other people are calling “reality.”

·         That is because your reality has shifted. It has become something else.  It has expanded grown.  And it cannot be shrunk again.  It’s like trying to get the genie back in the bottle.  It can’t be done.

·         Is there any way to “keep remembering”?

·         Yes. Act out knowings in every moment.  Keep acting on what you know, rather than what the world of illusion is showing you.

·         Cause another to remember.  That which you wish for yourself, give to another.

·         Because my Self and the other are One,and what I give to another, I give to myself.

·         To remain in the state of sublime no-thing, or Oneness with the All, would make it impossible to be there.  As I’ve just explained, That Which Is cannot be, except in the space of That Which Is Not.  Even the total bliss of Oneness cannot be experienced as ‘total bliss’ unless something less than total bliss exists.

·         …the divine Dilemma.

·         …we are all God – and that we are constantly, every one of us, journeying from Knowing to Not Knowing to Knowing again, from being to not being to being again, from Oneness to separation to Oneness again, in a never-ending cycle.  That this is the cycle of life – what You call the Cosmic Wheel.

·         Are we on an eternal journey to nowhere?

·         Yes. That’s the greatest truth.  There is nowhere to go, nothing to do, and no one you have to “be” except exactly who you’re being right now.

·         The truth is that there is no journey.  You are right now what you are attempting to be.  You are right now where you attempting to go.

·         It is the master who knows this, and thus ends the struggle.  And then does the master seek to assist you  in ending your struggle, even as you will seek to end the struggle of others when you reach mastery.

·         Yet this process – this Cosmic Wheel – is not a depressing treadmill.  It is a glorious and continual reaffirmation of the utter magnificence of God, and all life – and there is nothing depressing about that at all.

·         …in order to experience the ecstasy of this kind of physical union, you have to also experience not being united sexually with someone, if only for a while.

·         Even the ecstasy would not be ecstasy were there not a time when there was no ecstasy.  This is as true with spiritual ecstasy as it is with physical.  There is nothing depressing about the cycle of life, there is only joy.  Simply joy and more joy.

·         True masters are never than joyful.  This staying at the level of mastery is what you may now find desirable.  Then you can move in and out of the ecstasy and still be joyful always.  You do not need the ecstasy to be joyful.  You are joyful simply knowing that ecstasy is.

·         I am not here to predict your future, and I will not do that.  This much I can tell you.  This much anybody can tell you.  If you are not careful, you will get exactly where you are going.  If, therefore, you don’t like the way you are headed, change direction.

·         Go inside.  Search your place of inner wisdom.  See what this calls on you to do.  Then do it.

·         Most important of all, do not be afraid.  You cannot “die” in any event, so there is nothing to be afraid of.  Be aware if the Process unfolding, and quietly know that everything is going to be okay with you.

·         Seek to get in touch with the perfection of all things.  Know that you will be exactly where you have to be in order to experience exactly what you choose as you go about creating Who You Really Are.

·         This is the way to peace.  In all things, see the perfection.

·         Celebrate!  Celebrate life!  Celebrate Self!  Celebrate predictions!  Celebrate God!

·         Celebrate the perfection! Smile and celebrate and see only the perfection, and that which others call the imperfection will not touch in any which is imperfect for you.

·         Even if I’m not God, and I’m just “you” making it all up, can you get any better advice?

·         With this, as with the information in all three books, just live the wisdom.  Or, if you can think of a better way to proceed, do that.

·         You all have what you call “psychic power.”  It is, truly, a sixth sense.  And you all have "sixth sense about things.”

·         Psychic power is simply the ability to step out of your limited experience into a broader view.  To step back.  To feel more than what the limited individual you have imagined yourself to be would feel; to know more than he or she would know.  It is the ability to tap into the larger truth all around you; to sense a different energy.

·         To develop your psychic “muscle,” you must exercise it.  Use it.  Every day.  All the time.

·         …the first step in developing psychic “power” is to know you have it, and to use it.  Pay attention to every hunch you have, every feeling you feel, every intuitive “hit”  you experience.  Pay attention.  Then, act on what you ”know.” Don’t let your mind talk you out of it.  Don’t  let your fear pull you away from it.

·         The more that you act on your intuition fearlessly, the more your intuition will serve you.

·         There are three rules of psychic phenomena that will allow you to understand how psychic power works:

  1. All thought is energy.
  2. All things are in motion.
  3. All time is now.

·         Psychics are people who have opened themselves to the experiences these phenomena produce: vibrations.  Sometimes formed as pictures in the mind. Sometimes a thought in the form of a word.

·         The psychic becomes adept at feeling these energies.  This may not be easy at first, because these energies are very light, very fleeting, very subtle.

·         Intuition does not reside in the mind.  To be psychic, you’ve got to be out of your mind.  Because intuition resides in the psyche.  In the soul.  Intuition is the ear of the soul.

·         The soul is the only instrument sensitive enough to “pick up” life’s faintest vibrations, to “feel”  these energies, to sense these waves in the field, and to interpret them.

·         You have six senses, not five.  They are your sense of smell, taste, touch, sight, hearing, and ….knowing.  So here is how “psychic powers” works.

·         Every time you have a thought, it sends off an energy.  It is energy.  The soul of the psychic picks up that energy.  The true psychic will not stop to interpret it, but will probably just blurt out what that energy feels like.  That’s how a psychic can tell you what you’re thinking.

·         There’s no such thing as time –

·         That’s how a psychic can tell you about your “past”  “Tomorrow” also does not exist.  All things are occurring right now.

·         …the psychic has not “predicted the future” merely offered a glimpse of one of the “possible possibilities”  observed in the Eternal Moment of Now.

·         It is all a question of perception.  When you change your perception, you change your thought, and your thought creates your reality.

·         You don’t always get what you ask, but you always get what you create.  Creation follows thought, which follows perception.

·         …a true psychic will always tell you it doesn’t have to be that way.  You can “choose again” and change the outcome.

·         …another’s free will is never to be tampered with, and that another’s thoughts are never to be invaded, and that another’s psychic space is never to be violated.

·         …you are all seeking to evolve, to grow spiritually, to return to the Oneness.  You are seeking to experience yourself as the grandest version of the greatest vision you ever had about Who You Are.  You are seeking this is individually, and as a race.

·         Now there are no “rights” and “wrongs” no “do’s” and “don’t’s” in My world.

·         Still there are natural laws that have been built into the physical universe – and one of those is the law of cause and effect.

·         One of the most important laws of cause and effect is this:  All caused effect is ultimately experienced by the Self.

·         Whatever you cause another the experience, you will one day experience.

·         “What goes around, comes around.”

·         Other know this as the Jesus Injunction:  Do unto others as you would have it done unto you.

·         When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.

·         Love is the best “medium” of communication.

·         Look to see who is truly serving the world, truly seeking to share wisdom and knowledge, insight and understanding, caring and compassion.  Provide for those people, and provide grandly.  Pay them the highest honor.  Give them largest amount.

·         For these are the Bringers of the light.

·         ….humans have many fear based religions whose teachings surround a doctrine of a God who is to be worshiped and feared.

·         It was through fear that churches gained, and controlled, their membership.

·         …the idea of reincarnation threw a monkey wrench into all of that.

·         …when I created you, I did not create you so that you could live one lifetime – an infinitesimal period, really given the age of the universe – make the mistakes you were inevitably going to make, then hope for the best at the end.

·         Reincarnation fits perfectly into that purpose, which is for Me to create and experience Who I Am through you, lifetime after lifetime, and through the millions of other creatures of consciousness I have placed in the universe.

·         Paramahansa Yogananda is an example of a person who was very close to “perfect” as an out-picturing of what he thought of himself.  He had a very clear idea about himself and about his relationship to Me.

·         Every soul that was ever created was created At Once.  We are all here Now.

·         The confusion here is that you still think there’s more than one of Us here.

·         There’s not?

·         There was never more than one of us here. Ever.

·         But if You’re God, and You’re me, and I’m You…then…I’m God!

·         Thou art God, yes.  That is correct.

·         But I’m not only God  - I’m also everyone else.

·         Yes.  But –does that mean that no one, and nothing else, exists but me?

·         Have I not said,  I and My Father are One?

·         And have I not said, We are all One?

·         It’s a statement of fact.  We are all One.  That is what is meant by “whatsoever ye do unto the least of these…ye do unto me.”

·         I have divided Myself into an infinite number of “pieces” – so that each “piece” of Me could look back on Itself and behold the wonder of Who and What I Am.

·         ..why are You telling me all this now?

·         Because you were starting not to have fun.  Life was beginning not to be a joy anymore.  You were starting to get so caught up in The Process that you forgot it was just a process.

·         And so, you called out to Me.  You asked Me to come to you; to help you understand; to how you the divine truth; to reveal to you the greatest secret.  The secret you’ve kept from yourself.  The secret of Who You Are.

·         Now I have done so.  Now once again, you have been caused to remember.  Will it matter? Will it change how you act tomorrow?  Will it cause you to see things differently tonight?

·         Will you now heal the hurts of the wounded, quell the anxieties of the fearful, meet the needs of the impoverished, celebrate the magnificence of the accomplished, and see the vision of  Me everywhere?

·         Will this latest remembrance of truth change your life, and allow you to change the lives of others?

·         Or will you return to forgetfulness; fall back into self-ishness; revisit, and reside again in, the smallness of who you imagined yourself to be before this awakening?

·         Which will it be?

·         Nothing is painful which you understand is not real.

·         Death is never and end, but always a beginning.  A death is a door opening, not a door closing.

·         Impermanence is the only truth.

·         Nothing is permanent.  All is changing. In every instant.  In every moment.

·         The first false assumption is that there is such a thing as “right” and “wrong.”  The second false assumption is that killing is possible.

·         “Right and Wrong” are philosophical polarities in a human value system which have nothing to do with ultimate reality.

·         They are, furthermore, not even constant constructs within your own system, but rather, values which keep shifting from time to time.

·         It is no more immoral to kill yourself quickly than it is to kill yourself slowly.

·         There is a wonderful book on this subject called Stephen Lives, by Anne Puryear.  It is about her son, who ended his life when he was teenager.  So many people have found it helpful.

·         ..if you saw these truths, you would have to do something about them.  This you do not wish to do.  So you have no choice but to look right at something and not see it.

·         Most of the things which cause your slow deaths are things which bring you pleasure, or result from those things.  And most of the things which bring you pleasure are things which satisfy the body.  Indeed, this is what marks yours as a primitive society.  Your lives are structured largely around seeking and experiencing pleasures of the body.

·         If a society is structured largely around pleasures of the body, it is operating at a different level from a society structured around pleasures of the soul.

·         The more elevated a society or being, the more elevated are its pleasures.

·         …you are not yet even in kindergarten.  You are in nursery school.

·         Because you are deeply ego invested in being something you are not – and in not being what you are.

·         You cannot change that which you do not accept.

·         Acceptance of something places you in control of it.

·         That which you deny you cannot control, for you have said it is not there.  Therefore what you deny controls you.

·         The majority of your race does not want to accept that you have not yet evolved to kindergarten.  It does not want to accept that the human race is still in nursery school.  Yet this lack of acceptance is exactly what keeps it there.

·         You are so deeply ego invested in being what you are not (highly evolved) that you are not being what you are (evolving).  You are thus working against yourself, fighting yourself.  And hence, evolving very slowly.  The fast track of evolution begins with admitting and accepting what is, not what is not.

·         Your being is the universe in microcosm.  You, and your whole physical body, are composed of raw energy, clustered around seven centers, or chakras.  Study the chakra centers and what they mean.

·         What is pleasurable, or stimulates, your lower chakra is not the same as what is pleasurable to your higher chakras.

·         The higher you raise the energy of life through your physical being, the more elevated will be your consciousness.

·         “raise the kundalini energy” out of the root chakra.

·         If you want a yardstick with which to judge whether a thing is good for the human race or not, ask yourself a simple question:

·         What would happen if everyone did it?

·         This is a very easy measure, and very accurate one.

·         If everyone did a thing, and the result was of ultimate benefit to the human race, then that is “evolved” If everyone did it an it brought disaster to the human race, then that is not a very “elevated” thing to recommend.

·         One engages in sex because it is the natural thing to do…is built into the genes.  You obey a biological imperative.

·         The biological imperative is not to guarantee the survival of the species, but to experience the Oneness which is the true nature of your being.

·         …satisfy the most basic urges of the soul, which it turns out, are much larger than mere procreation, but have to do with re-creation of Who and What You Really Are.

·         …a manifestation of Oneness.

·         …physical urges are but one ingredient in a complex mixture of responses that you all have to each other.  Remember, you are a three-part being, with seven chakras centers.

·         When you are not being whole, you are being …than yourself.  That is what is meant by “unholy.”

·         If you are having sex from only your lower chakra center, you are operating from the root chakra alone, and missing by far the most glorious part of the experience. Yet if you are being loving with another person ad coming from all seven energy centers while you are being that, now you are having a peak experience.

·         Raise your energy, your life force, to the highest level possible in every moment, and you will be elevated.

·         It has to do with raising your consciousness no matter what you are doing.

·         Anyone who earnestly wishes to know more about the “physiology of spirituality” can find out easily enough.

·         Read the writings of Deepak Chopra.  He is one of the clearest annunciators right now on your planet.  He understands the mystery of spirituality, and the science of it.

·         And there are other wonderful messengers as well.  Their books describe not only how to raise your life force up through your body, but also how to leave your physical body.

·         You can remember through these additional readings how joyous it is letting the body go.  Then you will understand how it could be that you might never again fear death.  You will understand the dichotomy:  How it is a joy to be with the body, and a joy to be free of it.

·         “If the soul is so unhappy in the body, why doesn’t it just leave?

·         Well, it does….it leaves because it wishes to regenerate, rejuvenate….Every day.

·         When the soul yearns for its larger experience.  It finds this experience rejuvenating.

·         This is why We invented sleep.

·         Periodically throughout your life the soul seeks rejuvenation, refueling, if you will, so that it can continue lumbering along in this carrier you call your body.  You think it is easy for your soul to inhabit your body? It is not! It may be simple, but it is not easy! It is a joy, but it is not easy.  It is the most difficult thing your soul has ever done!

·         The soul, which knows a lightness and a freedom which you can’t imagine, yearns for that state of being again.

·         The soul is lightness and freedom.  It is also peace and joy.  It is also limitlessness and painlessness; perfect wisdom and perfect love.

·         I thought we fell asleep because the body needed rest.

·         You are mistaken.  It is the other way around.  The soul seeks the rest, and so, causes the body to “fall asleep.”

·         It will just leave the body when it seeks “refueling”…when it seeks, once again, reconnection, reassurance, restfulness, and reawakening for the mind.

·         …during these times the soul may be free, but the mind may be confused.

·         The more your whole being experiences the reassurance of these rejuvenations – and the more it remembers what it is doing, and trying to do, with the body – the body – the less your soul will choose to stay away from the body, for now it knows that it came to the body for a reason, a with a purpose.  Its desire is to get on with that, and to make the best use of all the time with the body that it has.

·         The person of great wisdom needs little sleep.

·         …you can tell how evolved a person is by how much sleep that person needs?

·         …it is not a coincidence that as beings become more and more aware of what they are doing with their bodies – and that they are not their bodies, but that which is with their bodies  - they become willing and able to spend more and more time with their bodies, and thus appear to “need less sleep.”

·         Now some beings even choose to experience both the forgetfulness of being with the body, and the Oneness of the soul, at once.  These beings can train a part of themselves to not identify with the body while they are still with the body, thus experiencing the ecstasy of knowing Who They Really Are, without having to lose human a wakefulness in order to do it.

·         It is a question of awareness, of reaching a state of total awareness…

·         Daily meditation is one of the best tools with which to create this experience.  With it, you can raise your life energy to the highest chakra….and even leave your body while you are “awake.”

·         In meditation you place yourself in a state of readiness to experience total awareness while your body is in a wakened state.  This state of readiness is called true wakefulness.

·         There is also stopping meditation.  Walking meditation.  Doing meditation.  Sexual meditation.

·         …just stop for a moment, and just “be” right where you are, you become right, exactly where you are.

·         When you are in readiness, you are in wakefulness.  A smile can take you there.

·         Smile a lot. It will cure whatever ails you.

·         Breathe. That is another tool.

·         Once this experience has taken place, life is never the same.  Their beingness is changed forever.

·         But know this.  Some people meditate for years and never experience this.  It has  to do with how open one is, how willing.  And also, how able to move away from any expectation.

·         Some souls seek to walk in awareness.  Some recognize that in this life most people are sleepwalking; unconscious….souls who walk in awareness choose a different path.  They choose another way.

·         “consciousness raising”

·         You eventually become totally aware of Who You Are.

·         Daily meditation is one way you may achieve this.  Yet it requires commitment, dedication – a decision to seek inner experience, not outer reward.

·         And remember, the silences hold the secrets.  And so the sweetest sound is the sound of silence.  This is the song of the soul.

·         If you believe the noises of the world rather than the silences of your soul, you will be lost.

·         When mastery is reached – or reached – or even intermittently experienced  - the noises of the world can be muffled, the distractions quieted, even in the midst of them.  All of life becomes a meditation.

·         All of life is a meditation, in which you are contemplating the Divine.  This is called true wakefulness, or mindfulness.

·         Experienced in this way, everything in life is blessed.  There is struggle and pain and worry no more. There is only experience, which you may choose to label in any way you wish. You may choose to label all of it perfection.

·         So use your life as a meditation, and all the events in it.  Walk in wakefulness, not as one asleep.  Move with mindfulness, not mindlessly, and not tarry in doubt and fear, neither in guilt nor self-re discrimination, yet reside in permanent splendor in the assurance that you are grandly loved.  You are always One with Me.  You are forever welcome.  Welcome home.

·         For your home is in My heart, and Mine in yours.  I invite you to see this in life as you will surely see it in death.

·         I love You, You know that?

·         The game would be over if you remembered everything.  You came here for a particular reason, and your Divine Purpose would be thwarted if you understood how everything is put together.  Some things will always remain a mystery at this level of consciousness, and it is right that they should.  So do not try to solve all the mysteries.   Not a t one time, anyway.  Give the universe a chance.  It will unfold itself in due course.

·         Enjoy the experience of becoming.

·         Your brain is in your skull.  Your mind is not.  Where is it, then?

·         In every cell of your body.

·         The Whole of You is magnificence itself, yet anything less than the Whole of You is less than magnificent.

·         The largest question facing the human race is not when will you learn, but when will you act on what you’ve already learned?

·         …there are more cells in your brain than anywhere else, so it seems as though your mind is there.  Yet that is just the main processing center, not the only one.

·         The soul is everywhere in, through, and around you. It is that which contains you.

·         Have you ever heard of an “aura”?

·         Is this the soul?

·         It is as close as we can come in your language, in your understanding, to giving you a picture of an enormous and complex reality.  The soul is that which holds you together.

·         There is no place where another soul “ends” and ours “begins”!  Just like there is no place where the air in the living room “stops” and the air in the dining room “starts.”

·         It’s all the same air. It’s all the same soul!

·         You’ve just discovered the secret of the universe.

·         …if the soul is everywhere inside and outside the body – in its “aura” as You put it – when does one aura “end”  and another “begin”? And now I’m able to see, for the first time, really, in physical terms, how it is possible that one soul does not “end” and another “begin” and that it is physically true that We Are All One!

·         I always thought this was a metaphysical truth.  Holy smoke, religion has just become a science!

·         It’s important to learn about Divine Dichotomy and understand it thoroughly if you are to live in our universe with grace.

·         Divine Dichotomy holds that it is possible for two apparently contradictory truths to exist simultaneously in the same space.

·         Now on your planet people find this difficult to accept.  They like to have order, and anything that does not fit into their picture is automatically rejected.  For this reason, when two realities begin to assert themselves and they seem to contradict one another, the immediate assumption is that one of them must be wrong, false, untrue.  It takes a great deal of maturity to see, and accept, that, in fact, they might both be true.

·         Yet in the realm of the absolute- as opposed to the realm of the relative, in which you live – it is very clear that the one truth which is All There Is sometimes produces an effect which, viewed in relative terms, looks like a contradiction.

·         This is called a Divine Dichotomy, and It is a very real part of the human experience.  And as I’ve said, it’s virtually impossible to live gracefully without accepting this.  One is always grumbling, angry, thrashing about, vainly seeking “justice” or earnestly trying to reconcile opposing forces which were never meant to be reconciled, but which, by the very nature of the tension between them, produce exactly the desired effect.

·         The realm of the relative is, in fact, held together by just such tensions.  As an example, the tension between good and evil. In ultimate reality there is no such thing as good and evil.  In the realm of the relative you have created the experience of what you “call”  evil, and you have done it for a very sound reason.  You wanted to experience love, not just “know” that love is All There Is, and you cannot experience something when there is nothing else but that.  And so, you created in your reality (and continue to do so every day) a polarity of good and evil,  thus using one so that you might experience the other.

·         And here we have a Divine Dichotomy – two seemingly contradictory truths existing simultaneously in the same place. Specifically:  There is such a thing as good and evil.  All there is is love.

·         While there is no actual separation between souls, it is true that the stuff of which the One Soul is made manifests in physical reality at different speeds, producing different degrees of density.

·         All of life is a vibration.  That which you call life (you could just as easily call it God) is pure energy.  That energy is vibrating constantly, always.  It is moving in waves.  The waves vibrate at different speeds, producing differing degrees of density, or light. This, in turn, produces what you would call different “effects” in the physical world – actually, different physical objects.  Yet while the objects are different and discrete, the energy which produces them is exactly the same.

·         …the air in the house is the same air.  There is no “separate air” in the dining room.  Yet the air in the dining room sure seems like “other air.”  For one thing, it smell different!

·         There is only one air, moving in, around, and through everything.

·         Like the air in your house, the energy of life –what well call the “Soul of God”  -takes on different characteristics as it surrounds different physical objects.  Indeed, that energy coalesces in a particular way to form those objects.

·         …this is all the same energy, behaving differently.

·         Thus, the Divine Dichotomy:  There is only One of us.  There are Many of us.

·         This is, in very simple elementary terms, the explanation behind the whole physical universe.

·         …scientists are already discovering that the building blocks of all of life are the same.

·         We are all the same energy, coalesced, compressed in different ways to create different forms and different matter.

·         The Father of all is pure thought.  This is the energy of life.  This is what you have chosen to call Absolute Love.

·         It is that which you have sought to understand from the beginning of time.  The Great Mystery,  the Endless Enigma, the eternal truth.

·         There is only One of Us, and so, it is That Which You Are.

·         ..where there is awareness of Me, you can never be alone.

·         How can I stay in my awareness?

·         Bring your awareness to others.  Not by proselytizing, but by example.  Be the source of the love which I Am in the lives of all others.  For that which you give to others, you give to yourself.  Because there is only One of Us.

·         Be the source. Whatever you want to experience in yourself, You have said, be the source of it in the lives of others.

·         This is the great secret.  This is the sacred wisdom.  Do unto others as you would have it done unto you.

·         All your problems, all your conflicts, all your difficulties in creating a life on your planet and joy are based in your failure to understand this simple instruction, and to follow it.

·         You have it in your head that it’s a “battle” – that there is some kind of struggle going on here.

·         It is not that way inherently, and it doesn’t have to seem that way, ever.

·         I have given you the tools with which to create the grandest reality.  You have simply chosen not to use them.  Or, to be more accurate, you have misused them.

·         The tools I am referring to here are the three tools of creation.

·         Thought, word and action.

·         “The beginning is God.  The end is the action.  Action is God creating – or God experienced.”

·         Those who allow such inspirations to move them, and who fearlessly share them publicly, are My greatest teachers.

·         You teach what you have to learn.

·         Why do you insist on putting yourself down like that?  You all do it!  Every one of you!  You deny your own greatness as you deny the existence of Me in you.

·         Every thought of your Self as smaller than you really are is a denial of Me.

·         Every word about yourself that puts you down is a denial of Me.

·         Every action flowing through your Self that plays out a role of “not – good – enough,” or lack, or insufficiency of any kind, is a denial indeed.  Not just in thought, not just in word, but in deed.

·         Do not allow your life to represent anything but the grandest version of the greatest vision you ever had about Who You Are. 

·         Now, what is the greatest vision you’ve ever had for your Self?  Is it not that you would one day be a great teacher?

·         Say, right now, “I am a great teacher.”

·         Public declaration is the highest form of visioning.

·         The first step in making it so is saying it is so.

·         Your greatest vision of you is Me!  That is Who I Am!

·         When you deny the greatest part of you, you deny Me.

·         Do not “want to.” You may not have what you “want.”    You merely declare that you are in “want” of it, and that’s where you will be left – you will be left wanting.

·         I choose to teach others never to deny themselves.

·         I choose to teach others never to deny You – God.  Because to deny You is to deny themselves, and to deny themselves is to deny you.

·         I choose to teach it on purpose.  Grandly.

·         …all great teachers go.  To your own wisdom.  To your own truth.  That is the place to which you must always go, for it is the place you must turn around and come from as you teach the world.

·         Everyone knows Who They Are in their heart.

·         And they are, each and every one, a great person.

·         If they open their heart, if they share with others their heart’s desire, if they live their heartfelt truth, they fill their world with magnificence.

·         And so, when you declare yourself to be Who You Are, you merely declaring who I Am.  Always declare Me as Source, and no one will mind you declaring yourself as great.

·         The One Energy that is All Energy individuates Itself into many different parts.

·         You are getting this.  You’re remembering now how it really is, and you’re having fun with it!  You’re returning now to “living lightly”  You’re lightening up.  This is what is meant by enlightenment.

·         This is all beautifully explained in the children’s storybook The little Soul and The Sun, which lays it out simply, for a child to understand.

·         …the human soul – the part of Me that “individuates” – is much larger than you have imagined.

·         So that you understand, then – there is only One Soul.  Yet what you call the individuated soul is huge, hovering over, in and through hundreds of physical forms.

·         “Some of the physical forms enveloped by your soul are “living now” in your understanding.  Others individuated in forms that are now what you would call “dead.”   And some have enveloped forms that live in what you call the “future” It’s all happening right now, of course, and yet, your contrivance call time serves as a tool, allowing you a greater sense of the realized experience.

·         So, these hundreds of physical bodies my soul has “enveloped” …..are all my “soul partners”?

·         …this blows the lid off all limitations, and makes all things possible.  The minute I catch myself, in the future, saying “that’s impossible,”  I’ll know that all I’m doing is demonstrating that there’s a great deal I don’t know.

·         Your own experience teaches you one thing – that loving everyone full out is the most joyful thing you can do.  Yet your parents, teachers, ministers tell you something else – that you may only love one person as special as another in any way, you are often made to feel that you have betrayed that other.

·         Then you are not expressing true love, but some counterfeit variety.

·         …the soul will always rebel at limitation.  Of any kind.  That is what has sparked every revolution in the history of humankind.

·         The answer to that question will be found in the answer to life’s largest question:  Who Am I – period – with regard to anything, in relationship to anything; Who Am I, and Who Do I Choose to Be?

·         As I have said repeatedly throughout this dialogue, the answer to that question is the answer to every question.

·         According to these books – according to what You seem to be saying in this dialogue  - I am “Love.”  That is Who I Really Am.

·         That is correct. You are love. Love is all there is.  So you are love, I am love, and there is nothing which is not love.

·         What about fear?

·         Fear is that which you are not.  Fear is False Evidence Appearing Real.  Fear is the opposite of love, which you have created in your reality so that you may know experientially That Which You Are.

·         Let me see if I can find, using your “figures of speech,”  some words and some ways to explain what love is.

·         The first word that comes to mind is unlimited.  That which love is unlimited.

·         There is no beginning and no end to it.  No before and no after.  Love always was, always is, and always will be.

·         Now get back to another word we use before – freedom.  For if love is unlimited, and always, then love is…free.  Love is that which is perfectly free.

·         You will seek freedom, unlimited, and eternality in every experience of  love.  You may not always get it, but that is what you will seek.

·         All these words are therefore synonymous.  Think of them as the same thing:

God

       Life

       Love

       Unlimited

       Eternal

       Free

·         The institution of marriage has been your attempt at creating eternality.  With it, you agreed to become partners for life.  But this did little to produce a love which was “unlimited” and “free.”

·         If the time has come when you have desired this special demonstration with one person alone, then choose it, as you say.  Announce it, and declare it.  Yet make your declaration an announcement moment-to-moment of your freedom, not your ongoing obligation.

·         For true love is always free, and obligation cannot exist in the space of love.

·         If you see your decision to express your love in a particular way with only one particular other as a sacred promise, never to be broken, the day may come when you will experience that promise as an obligation – and you will resent it. Yet if you see this decision not as a promise made only once, but as free choice, made over and over, that day of resentment will never come.

·         Remember this: There is only one sacred promise – and that is to tell and live your truth.  All other promises are forfeitures of freedom, and that can never be sacred.  For freedom is Who You Are.  If you forfeit freedom, you forfeit your Self.

·         As most of you are now living your life, there is a lie built into every promise.  The lie is that you can know now how you will feel about a thing, and what you will want to do about that thing, on any given tomorrow.  You cannot know this if you are living your life as a reactive being – which most of you are.  Only if you are living your life as a creative being can your promise not contain a lie.

·         Creative beings can know how they are going to feel about a thing at any time in the future, because creative beings create their feelings, rather than experiencing them.

·         Until you can create your future, you cannot predict your future.  Until you can predict your future…not promise anything truthfully about it.

·         Yet even one who both creates and predicts her future has the authority and the right to change.  Change is a fundamental right of all creatures.  Indeed, it is more than a “right” for a “right” is that which is given.  “Change” is that which Is.

·         Now, since you are “change” – and since change is the only thing constant about you – you cannot truthfully promise to always be the same.

·         Betrayal of yourself in order no to betray another is betrayal nonetheless.  It is the highest betrayal.

·         More damage has been done to others by persons leading lives of quiet desperation (that is, doing what they felt they “had” to do) than ever was done by persons freely doing what they wanted to do.

·         When you give a person freedom, you remove danger, you don’t increase it.

·         The longer damage will far outweigh the shorter – as nearly everyone who has tried to hold another person to their word has discovered.

·         The problem right now in your whole society is that it is based on force.  Legal force (which you call the “force of law”) and, too often, physical force (which you call the world’s “armed forces”). 

·         You have not yet learned to use the art of persuasion.

·         …a change of cultural ethic.  When your cultural ethic is changed to include an understanding that you are all One, you would never use force, because that would only damage your Self.

·         …your agreements themselves would be much different.

·         You would never hold back on giving or sharing something until you got what you call a just return.

·         …in this kind of one-way giving would your salvation be found, for you would have discovered what God has experienced:  that what you give to another, you give to your Self.  What goes around, comes around.

·         Life is about creating the highest quality giving not the highest quality getting.

·         You keep forgetting.  But life is not “for getting” Life is “for giving” and in order to do that, you need to be forgiving to others – specially those who did not give you what you thought you were going to get!

·         This switch will entail a complete shift of your cultural story.  Today, what you call “success” in your culture is measured largely by how much you “get” by how much honor and money and power and possessions you amass.  In the New Culture “success” will be measured by how much you cause others to amass.

·         The iron will be that the more you cause others…amass, the more you will amass, effortlessly.

·         In the future economy, you will not do things for personal profit, but for personal growth, which will be your profit.  Yet “profit” in material terms will come to you as you become a bigger and grander version of Who You Really Are.

·         …in highly evolved societies there is neither “marriage” nor “business” – nor, for that matter, any of the artificial social constructions you have created to hold your society together.

·         Most people experience that when they are in a marriage, they are in an “institution.”

·         Most people have a very difficult time with marriage, and do not like what it does to them.

·         Your worldwide divorce statistics prove this.

·         It is true that religions could not exist if the whole human race understood that God doesn’t have preferences, because a religion purports to be a statement of God’s preferences.

·         …marriage was the only way you could figure out to bring “foreverness,”  or eternality, into your experience of  love.

·         It was the only way a female could guarantee her support and survival, and the only way a male could guarantee the constant availability of sex, and companionship.

·         So a social convention was created. A bargain was struck.

·         ..those vows as you have them normally constructed run counter to the only law that matters.

·         Which is?

·         Natural  law.

·         What love  is, is unlimited, eternal, and free.

·         Therefore, that is what you are.  That is the nature of  Who You Are.  You are unlimited.  Eternal, and free by nature.

·         Now, any artificial social, moral, religious, philosophical, economic, or political construction which violates or subordinates your nature is an impingement upon your very Self – and you will rail against it.

·         You are so afraid to live – so afraid of life itself – that you’ve given up the very nature of your being in trade for security.

·         Finally, marriage as you have constructed it is a way of saying:  “This relationship is special.  I hold this relationship above all others.”

·         This is not a statement that a master makes, and it is not a statement that God makes.

·         …any thought that God loves one more than another is false – and any ritual which asks you to make the same statement is not a sacrament, but a sacrilege.

·         My love is unlimited and unconditional.

·         That is the one thing you cannot hear, the one truth you cannot abide, the one statement you cannot accept, for its all-inclusiveness destroys not only the institution of marriage ( as you have constructed it), but every one of your religions and governmental institutions as well.

·         For you have created a culture based on exclusion, and supported it with a cultural myth of a God who excludes.

·         Yet the culture of God is based on inclusion.

·         Whatever you construct in your life, in your human society, which does not serve your  purpose in becoming human is faulty.  It is a faulty construction.

·         And – just for review – my purpose in becoming human is?

·         To decide and to declare, to create and to express, to experience and to fulfill, Who You Really Are.

·         To re-create yourself a new in every moment in the grandest version of the greatest vision ever you had about  Who You Really Are.

·         That is your purpose in becoming human, and that is the purpose of all life.

·         …with regard to religion, you say where you want to go is to a place where you can truly know God and love God.  I am simply observing that your religions do not take you there.

·         Your religions have made God the Great Mystery, and caused you not to love God, but to fear God.

·         Religion has done little, as well, to cause you to change behaviors.  You are still killing each other, condemning each other, making each other “wrong.”

·         And, in fact, it is your religions which have been encouraging you to do so.

·         …you say you want marriage to take you to the land of eternal bliss, or at least to some reasonable level of peace, security and happiness.  As with religion, your invention called marriage does well with this in the early going, when you are first experiencing it.  Yet, as with religion, the longer you reside in the experience, the more it takes you where you say you don’t want to go.

·         Nearly half of the people who become married dissolve their marriage through divorce, and of those who stay married, many are desperately unhappy.

·         Your “unions of bliss” lead you to bitterness, anger, and regret.  Some – and not a small number  - take you to a place of outright tragedy.

·         You say you want your governments to ensure peace, freedom, and domestic tranquility, and I observe that, as you have devised them, they do none of this.  Rather, your governments lead you to war, increasing lack of freedom, and domestic violence and upheaval.

·         It has to do with the First Human Cultural Myth, and with all the other myths which necessarily follow.  Until they change, nothing else will change.

·         Your First Cultural Myth is that human beings are inherently evil.  This is the myth of original sin.  The myth holds that not only is your basic nature evil, you were born that way.

·         The Second Cultural Myth, arising necessarily out of the first, is that it is the “fittest” who survive.

·         Some of you say that this is your basic instinct.  It is called the “survival instinct” and it is this cultural myth that has formed much of your societal ethic, creating many of your group behaviors.

·         Yet your “basic instinct” is not survival, but rather, fairness, oneness, and love.  This is the basic instinct of all sentient beings everywhere.  It is your cellular memory.  It is your inherent nature.  Thus is exploded your first cultural myth.  You are not basically evil, you were not born in “original sin.”

·         If your “basic instinct” was “survival” and if your basic nature was “evil” you would never move instinctively to save a child from falling a man from drowning or anyone from anything.

·         Thus, your “basic” instinct cannot be “survival,”  and your basic nature is clearly not “evil.”  Your instinct and your nature is to reflect the essence of Who You Are, which is fairness, oneness, and love.

·         Looking at the social implications of this, it is important to understand the difference between “fairness”  and “equality”  It is not a basic instinct of all sentient beings to seek equality, or to be equal.  Indeed, exactly the opposite is true.

·         The basic instinct of all living things is to express uniqueness, not sameness.  Creating a society in which two beings are truly equal is not only impossible, but undesirable.  Societal mechanisms seeking to produce true equality – in other words, economic, political, and social “sameness” – work against, not for, the grandest idea and the highest purpose  - which is that each being will have the opportunity to produce the outcome of its grandest desire, and thus truly re-create itself a new.

·         Equality of opportunity is what is required for this, not equality in fact.  This is called fairness.  Equality in fact, produced by exterior forces and laws, would eliminate, not produce, fairness.  It would eliminate the opportunity for true self- re-creation, which is the highest goal of enlightened beings everywhere.

·         And what would create freedom of opportunity?  Systems that would allow society to meet the basic survival needs of every individual, freeing all beings to pursue self-development and self-creation, rather than self-survival.  In other words, systems that imitate the true system, called life, in which survival is guaranteed.

·         Now, because self-survival is not an issue in enlightened societies, these societies would never allow one of its members to suffer if there were enough for all.  In these societies self-interest and mutual best interest are identical.

·         Love has no requirements.

·         You can redesign your social construction called “marriage”  so that it does not ask what love would never ask, but rather, declares what only love could declare.

·         Change the expectations on which the vows are based.

·         One of your cultural myths about love is that it’s about giving rather than receiving.

·         It gets, and keeps, people in bad marriages, it causes relationships of all kinds to be dysfunctional.

·         …it is not you that is the problem, it is The Myth.

·         Everything you do, you do for yourself.

·         This is true because you and all others are One.

·         This is the most basic truth.  Yet it is the truth you most frequently ignore.  Now when you are in a relationship with another, that relationship has only one purpose…to decide and to declare, to create and to express, to experience and to fulfill your highest notion of Who You Really Are.

·         Everything in life depends on what you are seeking to be.

·         It is not a trick, but it is magic! And it is not about changing words to alter meaning, but changing perceptions to alter experience.

·         Either you are lying to yourself about where you say you want to go, or you are blind to the fact that you are not getting there.  Not as an individual, not as a country, not as species or a race.

·         I want to tell you about how you can alter your invention called “marriage” so that it takes you closer to where you say you want to go.  Do not destroy it, do not do away with it – alter it.

·         No limits at all. And that is what your marriage vows should state.

·         …not really “vows” at all, but Marriage Statements.

·         Do not confuse the length of your relationship with its quality.

·         If at some later point you and Nancy feel you wish to reform your relationship in a different way, you have a perfect right to do that.

·         The soul doesn’t enter the body.  The body is enveloped by the soul.

·         Everything is always alive.  There is no such thing as “dead” There is no such state of being.

·         You cannot killing anyone or anything.

·         …nothing happens against the will of God.

·         Life, and all that is occurring, is an expression of God’s will – read that, your will – made manifest.

·         You are the mightiest force.  No more, no less.  So let the force be with you!

·         You are “in this world, but not of it.”

·         “There’s something larger going on here”?

·         I’m explaining it to you.

·         The time has come for you to look at things a new way.  This is the moment of your rebirth, as an individual and as society.  You must re-create your world now, before you destroy it with your insanities.

·         Now listen to Me.

·         We are All One.

·         There is only One of Us.

·         You are not separate from Me. And you are not separate from each other.

·         Everything We are doing, We are doing in concert with each other.  Our reality is a co-created reality.  If you terminate a pregnancy, We terminate a pregnancy.  Your will is My will.

·         There are no victims and there are no villains.

·         You cannot understand this from your limited perspective; but I am telling you it is so.

·         This is the main difference between your culture – which is a “baby” culture, really; a primitive culture – and the highly evolved cultures of the universe.  The most significant difference is that in highly evolved cultures, all sentient beings are clear that there is no separation between themselves and what you call “God”

·         I am neither condoning nor condemning abortion, any more than I condone or condemn war.

·         ..do you know why all creatures believe God is on their side?  Because I am.  And all creatures have an intuitive knowing of this.

·         This is just another way of  saying, “Your will for you is My will for you.”  And that is just another way of saying, I have given you all free will.

·         …there is no such thing as right and wrong, and I have no preference in the matter.

·         You are all in the process of defining yourselves.

·         Every act is an act of self-definition.

·         If you are pleased with how you have created yourself, if it serves you, you will continue doing so in that way.

·         If you are not, you will stop.  This is called evolution.

·         The only thing that changes as you evolve is your idea of what serves you.  And that is based on what you think you are trying to do.

·         If you are trying to get to Seattle , it will not serve you to head toward San Jose .  It is not “morally wrong” to go to San Jose .  It simply doesn’t serve you.

·         The question of what you are trying to do, then, becomes a question of prime importance.  Not just in your life in general, but in every moment of your life specifically.  Because it is in the moments of life that a life itself is created.

·         When you are preparing to have your abortion, therefore, or when you are preparing to smoke that cigarette, or when you preparing to fry and eat that animal, and when you are preparing to cut that man off in traffic – whether the matter is large or small, whether the choice is major or minor, there is only one question to consider:  Is this Who I Really Am?  Is this who I now choose to be?

·         And understand this:  No matter is inconsequential.  There is a consequence to everything.  The consequence is who and what you are.

·         You are in the act of defining your Self right now.  That is your answer to the abortion question.  That is your answer to the smoking question and the meat-eating question and to every question about behavior  you’ve ever had.  Every act is an act of self-definition.  Everything you think, say, and do declares, “This is Who I am.”

 

15

 

·         …this matter of Who You Are and Who You Choose to Be, is of great importance.  Not only because it sets the tone of your experience, but because it creates the nature of Mine.

·         All of your life you have been told that God created you.  I come now to tell you this:  You are creating God.

·         That is a massive rearrangement of your understanding, I know.  And yet it is a necessary one if you are to go about the true work for which you came.

·         Built into you is an internal guidance system that shows you the way home.

·         This is the voice that speaks to you always of your highest choice, that places before you your grandest vision.

·         All you need do is heed that voice, and not abandon the vision.

·         Will you listen to these words?  Will you hear these messengers? Will you become one of them?

·         That is the great question.  That is the grand invitation.  That is the glorious decision.

·         The human race has no chance to lift itself from its own lowest thoughts until you lift yourself to your own highest ideas.

·         The world will follow you.

·         What you think, you create.  What you create, you become.  What you become, you express.  What you are.  What you are you think.  The circle is complete.

·         …now, at last, you see the whole picture.

·         Who you are, I am.

·         You are defining God.

·         Your conversation with God will go on forever.  And, now that you are actively engaged in it, that conversation will soon lead to friendship.

·         And, as happens in all relationships that friendship, if it is nurtured, kindled, and allowed to grow, will produce at last, a sense of communion.

·         The level of society’s advancement is reflected, inevitably, in the degree of its duality thinking.  Social evolution is demonstrated by movement towards unity, not separatism.

·         Why is unity such a yardstick?

·         Because unity is the truth.  Separatism is the illusion.

·         Acceptance, proclamation, demonstration.  Those are the three steps to God.  Acceptance of Who and What You Really Are. Proclamation of it for all the world to hear.  And demonstration in every way.

·         That master knows that only his part of the cycle is complete.

·         Now the master laughs, because the master sees the master plan.

·         The master’s role is to lead others to mastery.  And so the master continues to play, but in a new way, and with new tools.

·         It’s all part of the “master plan”  The plan for how you become masters.

·         …your chief interest is yourself.  Every evidence, not matter how scientific, not matter how demonstrable or compelling, will be denied if it violates your self interest.

·         Do you know how long it has taken your nations to agree to simply stop poisoning the atmosphere with fluorocarbons?

·         Why do you suppose it took so long?

·         Never mind. I’ll tell you.  It took so long because to stop the poisoning would cost many major companies a great deal of money.  It took so long because it would cost many individual people their conveniences.

·         It took so long because for years many people and nations choose to deny – needed to deny – the evidence in order to protect their interest in the status quo; in keeping things the way they are.

·         Only when the rate of skin cancers increased alarmingly, only when the temperatures began rising and the glaciers and snows began melting and the oceans got warmer and the lakes and rivers began flooding, did more of you begin paying attention.

·         Only when your own-self- interest  demanded it; did you see the truth that your finest minds had been placing before you for years.

·         It is very clear to enlightened creatures that what hurts one hurts the many, and that what benefits the few must benefit the many, or, ultimately, it benefits no one.

·         I said in Book 1 that in all relationships, do what is in the best interests of the Self.  But I also said that when you see what is in your highest self-interest, you will see that it is that which is also in the highest self-interest, you will see that it is that which is also in the highest interest of the other – for you and  the other are One.

·         You and all others are One – and this is a level of knowings that you have not attained.

·         Advanced technology without advanced thought creates not advancement, but demise.

·         …and you are very nearly about to experience it again.

·         Read The Last Hours of Ancient Sunlight. …By …Thom Hartmann.

·         It contains a summary of many of the ways in which your Earth home is being damaged, and ways that you can stop the ruination.

·         What else marks a society as either “primitive”  or “advanced.”?

·         The degree to which it implements its own highest understandings.

·         An assessment is not a judgment.  It is merely an observation of What Is.

·         You think you are at the pinnacle of human development, and I tell you, you are just beginning.  You have only just begun to experience your splendor!

·         Your grandest ideas are as yet unexpressed, to experience and your grandest vision unlived.

·         But wait! Look! Notice! The days of your blossoming are at hand.  The stalk has grown strong, and the petals are soon to open.  And I tell you this:  The beauty and the fragrance of your flowering shall fill the land, and you shall yet have your place in the Garden of the Gods.

 

 

17

 

·         It’s vitally important that you understand this.

·         Your present technology is threatening to outstrip your ability to use it wisely.

·         When a society becomes a product of its own technology, it destroys itself.

·         You keep proliferating your weapons of mass destruction the way you’ve been doing, and pretty soon they’ll get into the hands pf somebody who will hold the world hostage to them – or destroy the world trying.

·         And if you don’t kill yourselves with your nuclear madness, you’ll destroy your world with your environmental suicide.  You are dismantling your home planet’s ecosystem and you continue to say that you’re not.

·         As if that weren’t enough, you’re tinkering with the biochemistry of life itself.  Cloning and genetically engineering, and not doing so with sufficient care to have this be a boon to your species, but threatening instead to make it the greatest disaster of all time.  If you are not careful, you will make the nuclear and environmental threats look like child’s play.

·         By developing medicines to do the work that your bodies were intended to do, you’ve created viruses so resistant to attack that they stand poised to knock out your entire species.

·         “But what can one person do”?

·         They can start by dropping that “what can one person do”? stuff.

·         I’ve already told you, there are hundreds of books on this subject.  Stop ignoring them.  Read them.  Act on them.  Awaken others to them.  Start a revolution.  Make it an evolution revolution.

·         That’s why this is the crucial moment.  For the first time in your presently recorded history….you have both the technology, and the understanding of how to use it, to destroy your entire world.  You can actually render yourselves extinct.

·         These are the exact points made in a book by Barbara Marx Hubbard called Conscious Evolution.

·         Not only is the highly evolved being clear  that he can create everything all over again, he is also clear that he doesn’t have to.  He is clear that he needed none of it to be happy, or to survive.  He understands that he requires nothing exterior to himself, and that the “himself” which he is has nothing to do with anything physical.

·         Native Americans are highly evolved beings.?

·         …share everything.  With everyone.  Not a being goes without.  All the natural resources of their world, of their environment, are divided equally, and distributed to everyone.

·         A nation or a group or a culture isn’t thought to “own” a natural resource simply because it happens to occupy the physical location where that resource is found.

·         It  is viewed as a whole system, not as a bunch of little parts or elements, any one of which can be eliminated, decimated, or eradicated without damage to the system itself.   The “specie system”!

·         ..in highly evolved cultures it’s the species system that matters.

·         …but it isn’t that individual beings don’t matter.  Quite to the contrary.  The fact that individual beings do matter is reflected in the fact that effect on the specie system is uppermost when considering any decision.

·         You are moving dangerously close to the time when you will not be able to experience “life as you know it.”  Precisely because you have insisted on subordinating the needs of most species to the desires of only one.

·         The richest and the most powerful.

·         For better or worse, television is not the campfire of your society.

·         Do not denounce the medium.  You may use it one day yourself, to send a different message…

·         The oxygen manufacturing plant which you call the Amazon rain forest can be replaced in its capacity to balance your planet’s atmosphere in, say, two or three thousand years.  Not to worry.  You’re clearing thousands of acres every year, but not to worry.

·         …highly evolved civilizations.

·         ..have found a way to balance the total needs of the specie system.  They choose to do this, rather than serve the desires of one small portion of the system, for they realize that no species within the system can survive if the system itself is destroyed.

·         Human beings have been trying to solve problems at the “doingness” level for a long time, without much success.  That’s because true change is always made at the level of “being,” not “doing.”

·         …on the larger issues of principle, you have made very slow progress.

·         You are facing many of the same problems of principle that you’ve faced for centuries on your planet.

·         Your idea that Earth exists for the exploitation of the dominant species is a good example.

·         You clearly will not change what you are doing around that until you change how you are being.  You have to change your idea about who you are in relationship to your environment and everything in it before you will ever act differently.

·         It is a matter of consciousness.  And you have to raise consciousness before you can change consciousness.

·         Stop being quiet about all this.  Speak up.  Raise a ruckus.  Raise the issues.  You might even raise some collective consciousness.

·         On just one issue, for instance.  Why not grow hemp and use it to make paper.?

·         This is just one example of how greed replaces common sense in the conduct of human affairs.

·         You will wake up!  You are waking up! The paradigm is shifting.  The world is changing.  It’s happening right in front your eyes.

·         This book is part of it.  You are part of it.  Remember, you are in the room to heal the room.  You are in the space to heal the space. There is no other reason for you to be here.  Don’t give up! Don’t give up!  The grandest adventure has just begun!

·         I choose to be inspired by the example and wisdom of highly evolved beings.

·         Their First Guiding Principle is:  We are All One.

·         The Second Guiding Principle is: Everything in the One Interrelates.

·         A HEB is a steward, not a owner.

·         Humans possess, HEBs caress.  In your language, this is how the difference could be described.

·         “possession obsession.”

·         Now, as you have evolved, you understand more and more that you can really, truly, possess nothing – least of all your spouses and children.  Many of you, though, still cling to the notion that you can possess land, and everything on it, under it, and over it.…steward of the land…

·         ..in a highly evolved culture, a “corporation,” as you call it, would never be allowed to despoil the land in order to make a profit, for it would be clearly seen that the quality of the lives of the very people who own or work for the corporation are being irrevocably damaged.  What profit is there in that?

·         Highly evolved beings….live a lot longer.

·         ..they don’t pollute their air, their water, and their land.

·         ..suicidal…

·         A HEB never worries – and wouldn’t even understand the human concept of “worry” or “stress.”  Neither would a HEB “hate,” or feel “rage,” or “jealousy,”  or panic.  Therefore, the HEB does not produce biochemical reactions within her own body that eat away at it and destroy it.  A HEB would call this “eating itself,” and a HEB would no sooner consume itself than it would consume another corporal being.

·         First, a HEB understands that all things are perfect, that there is a process in the universe that is working itself out, and that all they have to do is not interfere with it.

·         …humans have this control, although some don’t  believe they have it, and others simply don’t choose to exercise it.

·         A HEB finds life in the body enjoyable, and can’t imagine doing anything that she knows ahead of time could limit or terminate that, or make it painful.

·         A HEB defines Self quite differently.  She speaks of the Self, the family, the community. …in highly evolved cultures, children don’t raise children.  Offspring are given to elders to raise.

·         In these cultures, elders live closely with the young ones.  They are not shuffled off to live by themselves.  They are not ignored, and left to work out their own final destinies.  They are honored, revered, and held close, as part of a loving, caring, vibrant community.

·         Offspring are raised in an environment of wisdom and love, great, great patience, and deep understanding.

·         …it is an honor, for upon the elders is placed the responsibility for the future of the entire species.

·         The degree to which a culture is evolved is demonstrated by the degree to which it labels a being or an action “shameful” or “guilty.”

·         They do not compete. They realize that when one loses, everyone loses.  They therefore do not create sports and games which teach children  (and perpetuate in adults) the extraordinary thought that someone “winning” while another is “losing” is entertainment...they share everything.

·         Highly evolved beings are also enriched by sharing rare things.  The only thing that is different between HEBs and humans is how HEBs define “being enriched.”  A HEB feels “enriched” by sharing everything freely, without needing to “profit.”  Indeed, this feeling is the profit.

·         Survival of the Fittest.

·         …an oxymoron.  It is self-contradicting.  Since the First Guiding Principle of a HEB is We Are All One, the “One” is not “fit” until the “All” is “fit.”  Survival of the “fittest” is, therefore, impossible – or the only thing that is possible (therefore a contradiction) – since the “fittest” is not “fit” until it is.

·         …in highly evolved cultures, the natural order IS equitable sharing.

·         The common good is life.

·         ..there is only One Soul, One Being, One Essence.  Some of you call this “God.” This Single Essence “individuates”  Itself as Everything in The Universe – in other words,  All That Is. This includes all the sentient beings, or what you have chosen to call souls.

·         God is a “collective?”

·         God is both? A single Awesome Being which is a collective of individualized parts?

·         In truth, there is only One Soul, reshaping and reforming Itself.  This might be called The Reformation.  You are all Gods in Formation.  (God’s information!)

·         To put this simply, by taking physical form you have already done enough.

·         “evil” is “live” spelled backward! So clever you are with language.  You fold into it secret wisdoms that you do not even know are there.

·         Until your community of beings knows about being in community, you will never experience Holy Communion, and cannot know Who I Am.

·         “Supply and demand”  does not drive the HEB system.  This is part of a system that humans claim contributes to their quality of life and to the common good.  Yet, from the vantage point of a highly evolved being, your system violates the common good.  For it does not allow that which is good to be experienced in common.

·         Personal possessives do not exist.

·         Employing that convention, “my car” becomes “the car I am now with.”  “My partner” or “my children” becomes “the partner’ or “the children” I am now with.

·         The term “now with” or “in the presence of”  is as close as your languages can come to describing what you would call “ownership”  or “possession.”

·         When you are in the presence of God (which you are, any time you are in the presence of each other), you would never think of keeping from God that which is God’s – meaning, any part of That Which Is.  You would naturally share, and share equally, that which is God’s with any part of that which is God.

·         This is spiritual understanding which under girds the entire social, political, economic, and religious structures of all highly evolved cultures.  This is the cosmology of all of life, and it is merely failure to observe this cosmology, to understand it and to live within it, which creates all of the discord of your experience on Earth.

·         Achieving is defined as “doing what brings value,”  not “doing what brings ‘fame’ and ‘fortune’, whether it is of value or not.”

·         HEBs value which produces benefit to All.

·         In this you have everything backward, given where you say that you want to go as society.

·         You have not developed very keen powers of observation.

·         HEBs do not honor those who teach or minister because it is “morally right.”  They do so because  it is “what works,”  given where they choose for their society to go.

·         In HEB society there is no such thing as “the destitute” and “the poor.”

·         By applying two basic principles – We are all One.  There’s enough.

·         The human consciousness of insufficiency of ‘not enoughness” – is the root cause of all worry, all pressure, all competition, all jealousy, all anger, all conflict, and, ultimately, all killing on your planet.

·         This, plus the human insistence on believing in the separation, rather than the unity, of all things is what has created 90 percent of the misery in your lives, the sadness in your history, and the impotence of your previous efforts to make things better for everyone. 

·         If you would change these two elements of your consciousness, everything would shift.  So here’s a tool.

·         Act as if you were all One.  Just start acting that way tomorrow.  See everyone as “you,”  just having a difficult time.  See everyone as “you” just wanting a fair chance.  See everyone as “you” just having a different experience.

·         Try it. Just go around tomorrow and try it.  See everyone through new eyes.

·         Then, start acting as if “there’s enough.”  If you had “enough” money, “enough” love, “enough” time, what would you do differently?  Would you share more openly, freely, equitably?

·         Use the resources, but don’t abuse the resources.  That’s all the ecologists are saying.

·         I see hundreds of thousands of people cheering as they read this.  I see millions recognizing the simple truths here.  And I see a new force for change growing in intensity on your planet.  Entire thought systems are being discarded.  Ways of governing yourselves are being abandoned.  Economic policies are being revised.  Spiritual truths are being reexamined.

·         Yours us a race awakening.

·         The enticements and observations on these pages need to be a source of discouragement.  That you recognize them as truth can be tremendously encouraging if you allow this to be the fuel drives the engine of change.

·         You are the change-agent.  You are the one who can make a difference in how humans create and experience their lives.

·         Be the difference.  Be the change.  Embody the consciousness of “We Are All One,”  and “There’s Enough.”  Change your Self, change the world.

·         You don’t have to let personal egos and advanced technology destroy your society this time.  You can do it differently.  You  - you – can make a difference.  That could be very exciting to you, if you allow it to be.

·         …live in clusters, or what your world would call communities, but for the most part they have abandoned their version of what you call “cities,”  or “nations.”

·         Because “cities”  became too big, and no longer supported the purpose of clustering, but worked against that purpose.  They produced “crowed individuals” instead of a clustered community.

·         More and more of you are no longer doing this.  More and more of you are re-creating small ‘intended’ communities.

·         There is a “way out,” and you will “get it right.”  You merely have to increase your observational skills.  You have to better see what serves you.  This is called “evolution.”  Actually, you cannot “not get it right.”  You cannot fail it.  It is merely a question of when, not of whether.

·         ..if you want to “get it right” on this planet, that is, while this particular planet stills supports you  - then, within that context, you’d better hurry.

·         I am helping you.  What do you suppose this dialogue is about?

·         … “nationalism”  works against their First Guiding Principle:  WE ARE ALL ONE.

·         You separate yourself into nations for reasons of survival and security – and produce just the opposite.

·         Highly evolved beings….formed “one nation, under God.”

·         …all races and species are evolving, and evolution… - seems to keep moving in one direction…towards unity, and away from separation.  This is not surprising, since unity is the Ultimate Truth, and “evolution” is just another word for “movement toward truth.”

·         The species….which has become clear that evolution is a process – but a process over which the species has control – has not confused “process”  with “principle” but consciously chooses a principle which it uses to guide and direct it process.

·         This is called conscious evolution, and your species has just arrived there.

·         ..here is the greatest Divine Dichotomy:  The greatest complexity is the greatest simplicity.  The more “complex”  a system is, the more simple is its design.  Indeed, it is utterly elegant in its Simplicity.

·         The master understands this.  That is why a highly evolved being lives in utter simplicity.  It is why all highly evolved systems are also utterly simple.  Highly evolved systems of governance, highly evolved systems of education – all are utterly, elegantly simple.

·         Highly evolved systems of governance, for instance, involve virtually no governance at all, save self-governance.

·         The “genetic stuff” of which you are made was placed on your planet, deliberately.

·         There was a plan involved.  There is something much larger going on here.

·         There is nothing “alien” about God. There are no “aliens” on Earth.

·         We are all One.  If We Are All One, no individuation of Us is alien to itself.

·         You are all evolving beings.  Some of you are highly evolved.  That is, you re-member, more.  You know Who You Really Are.  Jesus knew it, and declared it.

·         All spirits are “not  of this Earth.”  All souls come from another realm, them enter the body.  Yet not all souls self-realize in a particular “lifetime.”  Jesus did.  He was a highly evolved being.

·         His mission was – is –to save you from not knowing and never experiencing Who You Really Are.  His intention was to demonstrate that by showing you what you can become. Indeed, what you are – if you will only accept it.

·         Jesus sought to lead by example.  That is why he said, “I am the way and the life.  Follow me.”  He didn’t mean “follow me” in the sense that you would all become his “followers” but in the sense that you would all follow his example and become one with God.

·         HEBs live in the natural environment…highly evolved civilizations create, control, and care for their environments.

·         HEBs also understand that they are One with their environment, that they share more than space with their environments.

·         …you do not understand that it is your environment which supports you; that you are beings of very limited observational skills.

·         …a HEB uses as his first level of communication the aspect of his being which you would call feelings.

·         It is the purpose of communication in a society of HEBs to know each other in truth.

·         To be successful in getting one’s way by communicating an untruth would be for a HEB a victory so hollow as to render it not a victory at all, but a staggering.

·         …untruth does not work.  You have not yet learned this in your society…much of society  is based on secrecy.  Many of you believe it is what you keep from each other, not what you tell to each other, that makes life work.  Secrecy has thus become your social code, your code of ethics.  It is truly your secret Code.

·         …your government runs by this code, your businesses adopt it, and many of your relationships reflect it. Lying –about things large and small – has become so accepted by so many that they even lie about lying.  Thus, you have developed a secret code about your Secret Code.  Like the fact that the emperor is wearing no clothes, everybody knows it, but nobody’s talking about it.  You even try to pretend its not so – and in this you are lying to yourself.

·         The differences between human cultures and highly evolved cultures is that highly evolved beings:

  1. Observe fully
  2. Communicate truthfully

They see “what works” and say “what’s so.”  This is another tiny, but profound, change which would immeasurably improve life on your planet.

·         …each individual is the sole and final arbiter of what is, and is not, appropriate behavior for them.

·         The discussion is always around what works for HEB society – what is functional and produces benefit for all – not around what humans would call  “right” and “wrong.”

·         …precise awareness of  feelings facilitates life in any community or cluster.

·         “telepathic communication”  occurs between all highly evolved sentient beings.

·         Caring creates communication.

·         Where there is deep love, words are virtually unnecessary.

·         …when communication is difficult, it is a sign that love is not fully present.

·         To summarize, then, the model for life in a highly evolved society:

·         Beings live in clusters, or what you would call small intentional communities.  These clusters are not further organized into cities, states, or nations, but each interacts with the others on a co-equal basis.

·         There are no governments as you would understand them, and no laws.  There are councils, or conclaves.  Usually of  elders.  And there are what could best be translated into your languages as “mutual agreements.”  These have been reduced to a Triangular Code:  Awareness,  Honesty, Responsibility.

·         ..based….on a simple observation of what is, so, and what works.

·         …there truly are no wars and/or conflicts?

·         …mainly because a highly evolved being shares everything he has, and would give you anything you sought to take by force. He does this out of his awareness that everything belongs to everyone anyway, and that  he can always create more of that he “gave away”  if he really desires it.

·         There is no concept of “ownership” or “loss”  in a society of HEBs, who understand that they are not physical beings, but beings being physical.  They also understand that all beings proceed from the same source, and thus, We Are All One.

·         He is simply allowed to correct his mistake.  Using the Triangular Code, he is first made aware of all the outcomes related to something he has thought or said or done.  Then he is allowed to asses and declare his role  in producing those outcomes.  Finally, he is given an opportunity to take responsibility for those outcomes by putting corrective or remedial or healing measures into place.

·         “school” (actually, best translated as “learning time”) set their own “curriculum” choosing which skills they would like to acquire, rather than being told what they are going to have to learn.  Motivation is thus at its highest level, and life skills are acquired quickly, easily, and joyfully.

·         The Triangular Code…is not something which is “pounded into”  the young HEB, but something which is acquired  - almost by osmosis – through the behaviors modeled for the “child” by “adults.”

·         Unlike your society, in which adults model behaviors opposite to those which they want their children to learn, in highly evolved cultures adults understand that children do what they see others doing.

·         It would be equally incomprehensible, if a HEBs to place their offspring for many hours in front of a device that shows pictures of behaviors they’d like their offspring to avoid.  Such a decision would be, to a HEB, incomprehensible.

·         It  would be equally incomprehensible, if a HEB did do this, to then deny that the pictures had anything to do with their offspring’ suddenly aberrant behaviors.

·         I will say again that the difference between HEB society and human society breaks down to one really very simple element, which we shall call truthful observation.

·         In human societies, many deny what they see.  They see television ruining their children, and they ignore it.  They see violence and “losing” used as “entertainment” and deny the contradiction.  They observe that tobacco harms the body, and pretend it does not.  They see a father who is drunken and abusive, and the whole family denies it, letting no one say a word about it.

·         They observe that over thousands of year their religions have failed utterly to change mass behaviors, and deny this, too.  They see clearly that their governments do more to oppress than to assist, and they ignore it.

·         They see a health-care system that is really a disease-care system, spending one-tenth of its resources on preventing disease, and nine-tenths on managing it, and deny that profit motive is what stops any real progress on educating people in how to act and eat an live in a way which promotes good health.

·         They see that eating the flesh of animals that have been slaughtered after having been forced-fed chemical-laden foods is not doing their health any good, yet they deny what they see.

·         ..there’s a wonderful book that explores this whole food topic with exquisite insight.  It’s called Diet for a New America, by John Robbins.

·         Highly evolved beings – which some of you are becoming – deny nothing.  They observe “what’s so.”  They see clearly “what works.”  Using these simple tools, life becomes simple.  “The process” is honored.

·         ..how does “The Process” work?

·         Everything depends on who you think you are, and what you are trying to do.  If your objective is to live a life of peace, joy, and love, violence does not work.

·         If your objective is to live a life of good health and great longevity, consuming dead flesh, smoking known carcinogens, and drinking volumes of nerve-deadening, brain-frying liquids does not work.

·         If your objective is to raise offspring free of violence and rage, putting them directly in front of vivid depictions of violence and rage for years does not work.

·         If your objective is to care for Earth, and wisely husband her resources, acting as if those resources are limitless does not work.

·         If your objective is to discover and cultivate a relationship with a loving God, so that religion can make a difference in the affairs of humans, then teaching of a God of punishment and terrible retribution does not work.

·         Motive is everything.  Objectives determine outcomes.  Life proceeds out of your intention.  Your true intention is revealed in your actions, and your actions are determined by your true intention.  As with everything in life (and life itself) it is a circle.

·         HEBs see the circle.  Humans do not.

·         HEBs respond to what is so; humans ignore it.

·         HEBs tell the truth, always.  Humans too often lie, to themselves as well as others.

·         HEBs say one thing, and do what they say.  Humans say one thing and do another.

·         Deep down you know that something is wrong.

·         You see the contradictions in your behaviors, and you are truly ready now to abandon them.  You see clearly both what is so, and what works, and you are becoming unwilling any further to support divisions between the two.

·         Yours is a race awakening.  Your time of fulfillment is at hand.

·         ..the groundwork has been laid for a new experience, a larger reality, and all this was merely preparation for it.  You are ready now to step through the door.

·         This dialogue, in particular, has been intended to throw open that door.  First, to point to it.  See?  There it is!  For the light of truth will forever show the way.  And the light of truth is what you have been given here.

·         Take this truth now, and live it.  Hold this truth now, and share it.  Embrace this truth now, and treasure it forever more.

·         There is nothing new here, but simply ancient wisdom revisited.

·         So revisit this trilogy often; turn to its pages time and time again.

·         When you have a question that you feel has not been answered here, read the pages over again.  You will find that your question has been answered.  Yet if you really feel it has not, then seek your own answers.

·         Have your own conversation.  Create your own truth.  In this will your experience Who You Really Are.

·          ….you may go within at any time, return to the Seat of Eternal Wisdom, and find your answer there?

·         Is our world really in danger?  Is our species flirting with self-destruction – with actual extinction?

·         Yes.  And unless your consider they very real possibility of that, you cannot avoid it.

·         Try thinking “outside the box.”  They are thinking “either/or.” They might try thinking “both/and.”

·         I draw your attention to the words of Werner Erhard, who declared that true clarity can come only when someone is willing to notice:

There is something I do not know, the knowing of which could change everything.

·         …here is the grandest truth:  You are making everything up.

·         God is a process.

·         “being” is not a thing, it is a process.

·         Everything is forever changing.  Nothing stands still.  Nothing – nothing – is without motion.  Everything is energy,   in motion.  In your earthly shorthand, you have called this “E-motion!”

·         Life is a process.

·         The one thing that never changes is that everything is always changing.

·         Life is change.  God is life.

·         Therefore,  God is change. …the parable of  The Little Soul and the Sun.

·         If you choose to be a thing, something or someone opposite to that has to show up somewhere in your universe to make that possible.

·         …remember Who I Really Am.

·         God is a work in progress, and so are you.  And remember this always:  If you saw you as God sees you, you would smile a lot.

·         If you wish to increase the speed with which you are evolving, seek to observe more.

·         There is another saying that has been placed into your culture by Werner Erhard – life resolves itself in the process of life itself.

·         This is understood by some spiritual movements as “let go and let God.”  That is good understanding.

·         All wisdom asks you to do is trust The Process.  That is, trust God.  Or, if you wish, trust yourself, for Thou Art God.   Remember, We Are All One.

·         Like the things life keeps bringing you!  Know and understand that you are bringing it to your Self.

·         SEE THE PERFECTION.

·         I “got” that nothing mattered intrinsically, in and of itself, but that I was adding meaning to events, and so, causing them to matter.

·         I “got” that all is energy, and that energy turns into “matter”  - that is, physical “stuff” and “occurrences” – according to how I thought about them.  I understood, then, that “nothing matters”  means that nothing turns into matter except as we  choose for it to.

·         You are making it  all up.  You are deciding what is “cold” and what is “warm,”  what is “up” and what is “down.”

·         Your are deciding what is “good” and what is “evil.”  And your ideas about all these things have changed through the years.

·         The universe merely provides you with a field of experience  - what might be called a range of objective phenomena.  You decide what to label them.

·         You have experienced all of it.  If not in this lifetime, then in the last. Or the one before that.

·         You do not have to experience them again if you don’t want to.  You need merely remember them – know that they exist – in order to invoke the universal law of relativity.  All of you.  All of you have experienced everything.  That goes for all beings in the universe.

·         It is simple.  You have separated your Self from the body of God, from the All from the collective, and you are becoming a member of that body once again.  This is The Process called “re-remembering.”

·         …your planet’s greatest spiritual revolution has just begun.

·         This means that you can change life on your planet right now, and eliminate all that you are not, without endangering in any way your ability to know and experience That Which You Are.

·         This is the “knowledge of the fruit of the Tree of Good and Evil” which I’ve already explained to you was not a curse, not the original sin, but what Matthew Fox has called Original Blessing.

·         And to remember that it exists, to remember that you have experienced it all before – everything that is – in physical form….all you have to do is look up.

·         Look to the heavens.  OBSERVE THE CONTEXTUAL FIELD.

·         I have told you before, all you need to do to become highly evolved beings is to increase your observational skills.  See “what’s so,”  and then do “what works.”

·         …you can use your imagination to create anything. Because – and here is the greatest secret of all  -your image-ination works both ways.

·         You not only interpret energy, you create it.

·         ..you are both the Creator and the Created.

·         I have now brought it all together for you.  We are concluding this dialogue, and I have explained to you the mechanics of the universe, the secret of all life.

·         In everything, be cause.

·         That is the only reason to do anything.

·         The most significant way in which you may consciously apply your New Understanding is to be the cause of your experience, not at the effect of it.

·         Armed with this knowledge, you can change your life, and you can change your world.  And this is the truth I have come to share with all of you.

·         Now know that there are three basic wisdoms that run thorough the entire dialogue.  These are:

  1. We Are All One.
  2. There’s Enough.
  3. There’s Nothing We Have To Do.

·         If you decided that “we are all one,”  you would cease treating each other the way you do.   If you decided that “there’s enough,” you would share everything with everyone.

·         If you decided that “there’s nothing we have to do,” you would stop trying to use “doingness” to solve your problems, but rather, move to, and come from, a state of being which would cause your experience of those “problems” to disappear, and the conditions themselves to thus evaporate.

·         There’s nothing I have to have, there’s nothing I have to do, and there’s nothing I have to be, except exactly what I’m being right now.

·         It means that what you experience yourself having or doing will spring from your being – not lead you to it.

·         Here is the Divine Dichotomy.  The way to “get there” is to “be there.”  Just be where you choose to get!  It’s that simple.  There’s nothing you have to do.  You want to be happy?  Be happy.  You want to be wise? Be wise.  You want to be love?  Be love.

·         It is truth that is eloquent.  Truth has a elegance that startles the heart to its own reawakening.

·         Now they lead you to a critical question.  It is a question all of humanity must ask itself.  Can, and will, you create a new cultural story?  Can and will you devise a new First Cultural Myth, upon which all other myths are based?

·         Is the human race inherently good, or inherently evil?

·         This is the crossroads to which you have come.  The future of the human race depends on which way you go.  If you and your society believe you are inherently good, you will make decisions and laws that are life affirming and constructive.  If you and your society believe that you are inherently evil, you will make decisions and laws that are life denying and destructive.

·         Laws that are life affirming are laws that allow you to be, do, and have what you wish.  Laws that are life denying are laws that stop you from being, doing, and having what you wish.

·         Do your assumptions further your society in breaking down, or breaking through?

·         The question is not, to whom do I talk, but who listens?

·         And here is My message, the message I would seek to leave with the world:

My children, who art in heaven, hallowed is your name.  Your kingdom is come, and you will is done, on Earth as it is in Heaven.

You are given this day your daily bread, and you are forgiven your debts, and your trespasses, exactly to the degree that you have forgiven those who trespass against you.  Lead your Self not into temptation, but deliver your Self from the evils you have created.  For thine is the Kingdom, and the Power, and the Glory forever.   Amen.

·         Go now, and change your world.

 

 

Afterword 

2003 Edition

 

·         The problem facing humanity today is a spiritual problem, and it can only be resolved by spiritual means.

·         ..these books contain messages that offer workable alternatives to humanity’s most prevalent beliefs – beliefs that continue to create its most persistent problems.

·         …we can do a great deal more than sharing the message.  We can inspire the world by being the change we wish to see.

·         …by becoming Spiritual Activists.

·         It is high time that people of high purpose became highly organized.  I am talking here about organization on a worldwide basis to produce a specific result.  And the result I propose?  Peace on Earth, goodwill to humans everywhere.

·         …spiritual activists on the ground around the globe, working in the political, economic, religious, educational, and social arenas to produce here-and-now experiences and real-world outcomes that reflect its simple message:  “There’s another way.”

·         …a way that eliminates ruthless competition as a means of survival, violence as means of control, killing as a means of conflict resolution, and the empowerment of some through the disempowerment of others.

·         ..an enormous act of collective will.

·         ..what the world needs now…we must put ourselves in direct and continual communication with those we have placed in charge of our future – our political and religious leaders – and tell them to stop the insanity; that what they are doing is not working.

·         Then we must show them what does work.

·         First, we must be the change we wish to see in the world.  Then, we must do what people who are being that would do.  This begins at our kitchen table.
