“Working with what is in unity is not work but relationship. You are called to realize your relationship with what is given from unity. It is in that relationship, the relationship between what is and the expression of what is by the elevated Self of form, that the new is created. What is becomes new by becoming sharable in form—or in other words, what is continues to become through the continuation of relationship and the creation of new relationships. In this way, sharing in relationship becomes the goal and the accomplishment of the elevated Self of form, the means through which the Self of union is known even in the realm of separation, and thus what draws others from separation to union.” (ACOL, D:10.5)
This passage is, bottom-line, theology. In the future, the new, we will be creating by being in relationship with the larger Self, and when we express what we are receiving, we will be right on the beam: “It is in that relationship, the relationship between what is and the expression of what is by the elevated Self of form, that the new is created.”
We don’t “work” at this; it just “is.” We intuit what it is that we are to share with others. When we intuit rightly, we are in league with all the universe. We are doing what God asks of us. And when we share that knowledge with others with whom we are in relationship, we are at home in that universe. The circles of relationship ever widen. We share with more and more of our brothers and sisters, and then they join with us, in their communion with the larger Self, and the new gets created very easily.
The blessings in this way of living are abundant. We cease struggling. Jesus says elsewhere that no day is meant to be lived in a struggle with what it brings. We can believe this, and when we do, we add our part to the smoothing out of our life as well as the smoothing out of our relationships. The new reality will hold much that will make us happy. We will know, finally, that we can stop tinkering with our personality; our personality is OK just as it is. And if there happens to be anything that we lament, we can just will that deplorable aspect away, and it will be gone. That simple. Just that simple.
When we are drawing from the larger Self, we realize that our life will be easier. No more confusion. No more questioning, incessant questioning, about what direction our life is to take. Our guidance is clear. And as the elevated Self of form draws more and more from this larger Self, the blessings that come to us individually we will want to share with others with whom we are in relationship. And it is this larger circle that is meant to be. Sharing in ever-widening circles, in relationship with our brothers and sisters, will save the world.
Does this sound like pie-in-the-sky reasoning? Keep in mind that what I am saying is simply a rewording of what Jesus has told us. And is he likely to be wrong?
I would be satisfied with my fate today. I would be satisfied that life is proceeding as it should. The way back is not difficult, but it does take some faith that what is unfolding is right and true.
I would see the right and true today. Thank You for being with me during every step of this journey back to You.
