If you know the content of your own heart . . .
If you can be consciously aware of this condition . . .
Then you not only know the secret contents
Of the heart of everyone else you meet,
But you also know that there is no difference
Between you and all of these “others”.
In the realization of this undivided life
You are given the Grace of knowing
That God is one . . . And that each one of us
Is a secret measure of His divine life.
When one knows what is wrong,
But not what is right,
He must stand there in the dark
While he waits for the Light.
Question: When quieting my mind, there is sometimes a feeling of peace and clarity in the present moment, but often there is this gloomy, dark feeling of emptiness, together with a sense of fear about the future making me feel very vulnerable. Why this inconsistency?
Answer: One of the small pieces of higher knowledge that we need when we set out on the path of Truth is that not all of us wants to make this journey. Within us dwell certain energetic bodies that are only comfortable in a dark and divided world. When we become quiet and invite the Light into us to see ourselves (and this life) by, the entrance of the ineffable sets off this level of self. Watch it like you watch everything else, and let go of anything it brings up in you.
Question: Can you help shed some light on why we are here in this life?
Answer: All of our deeper personal experiences eventually come to reveal some lesson that we needed to learn. This process of events that leads us to the discovery of their cause proves both the existence of order and purpose. The outcome of each experience turns out to be for personal growth. Therefore, it is safe to say we are here on earth, in these bodies, to grow in wisdom and the love that is an outgrowth of it.
