“Beloved friends, The Way of Transformation rests on exactly the same thing that all of your dreams rest upon—the decision concerning what you would be committed to. For you cannot dream a dream, that is, you cannot create an experience in the field of consciousness, without being one hundred percent committed to it. It may appear that this is not the case, but I assure you that it is.” (“The Way of Transformation,” WOM, Chapter 13, Page 154)
Today I am beginning consideration of the second part of The Way of Mastery, about the transformation which we all seek, some without knowing it. We are dreaming a dream, and right now in our world it very much seems that we are dreaming a worldwide nightmare. We can, though, often make our experience better by what we choose to focus upon. We create experiences for ourselves that we are committed to—that is what this quotation says.
Let us choose to commit to the good reaction of many good people in our world at this sad time. If we choose to focus on this, the good reaction that does sometimes make the news, our dream will soften. Our fears will recede, and with a clear mind we will begin to see solutions. The solution is always with the problem, though right now that doesn’t seem true. In our daily life, though, solutions do appear when our mind is calm.
May we do what we can in our little world, our circle of intimates. May we stay peaceful, as much as possible, so that we can be of help to ourselves and the others we see and touch.
