Learning We Are Not Here
Our true reality, our Identity as spiritual beings, our Self, is not changed by what we think with the ego. The fierce, horrible, frightening things we think with the ego are not the truth about us, nor are they even the truth about the world. The world is neutral, like a movie screen, and reflects back at us what we project onto it. If we project the ego’s nightmare, the world is a nightmare. If we project our true Identity, then the world is a blessed, joyous place.
To transform the world, we have to transform ourselves first. We must see what we are doing—projecting the ego’s nightmare, take responsibility for our projections, and choose to project from our true Identity. That is why “our only purpose here is learning we are not here.” The more we blame others: Republicans, bankers, Adelson and the Kochs, the more we invest in fixing the world of the ego and forgetting our only purpose.
Isn’t it comforting to know who you really are? Who your Self is, and what you’re true Identity is?
It sure is for me! I take a deep breath and relax into it. I affirm: “Today, I let spirit, mySelf, look upon all things for me and judge them not. But give each one the miracle of love instead.” I, as an ego, am not capable of this. But with the love of God upholding me—It loving me, and me loving It, the work can be done thru me.
