Seeing Shared Interests Where None Seem to Be

An excellent way to do what I wrote about last time, to, as Emerson said, “get your bloated nothingness out of the way of the divine circuits,” is to begin to see our interests as the same as other people’s and not see our interests as separate and apart from another’s.


This is obviously impossible in the ego framework where everything is different. But in the spiritual framework we do share the same interests—those of releasing the ego, awakening from its nightmare and realizing we are spiritual beings having earthly experiences.


I do not have to change the relationship I have with others and the world, I simply change the purpose my separate, ego specialness has given the relationship. Changing the form is irrelevant, it’s like going up to the movie screen to change the focus, it’s the mind’s shift of purpose from form and appearances to our shared content of awakening that matters.


It is this shift that makes the at-one-ment, God and our reality as spiritual beings real in our experience. Thus I do not have to decide for or against God, but simply to decide for or against you.
