“Here is the nub: No one can make the decision for you. I have never enlightened anyone. I have never even so much as lifted them an inch. I have merely chosen to demonstrate unlimitedness for myself. . . .” (“The Way of Transformation,” WOM, Chapter 13, Page 163)
Jesus can’t do it for us; he says so, here. We can’t get a transformative experience for Awakening or enlightenment by looking to somebody else, even one such as Jesus. What do we have to do? What we can do is remove the blocks to our awareness of love, and these blocks are fear and judgment. Love is the Answer, always and forever, but these things, fear and judgment, that stand prevent us from loving well have to go.
Jesus demonstrates unlimitedness as a divine being. We can ask for unlimitedness in ourselves, ask it of God, and we may very well get an affirmative response from Him. We may very well find ourselves thinking, saying, and doing things that have eluded us until now. We reach skyward in our unlimitedness. And we find that we are not alone in this desire for ourselves. God wants us to live in an expanded way, too.
We are unlimited, though we think that our finite minds hold us back. It is true that with our finite minds, we don’t know everything. We don’t know all the glories of the Kingdom and the universe(s). But we can still enjoy magnitude. Our Self is a glorious rendition of God’s way with us. He is holding nothing back. We are the ones who restrain ourselves. And we have it in our power to change that restraint.
Just ask, and see if we aren’t able to see an expanded role in our service to the world.
