“We know for sure that we are all we are being, and that what we are is nothing other than the living Christ. Thus we begin to enjoy the sanctity of our being.” COL bk.2, 19:II
In the next step that we will encounter, we will walk Mary’s way, which was the way of being as opposed to doing. This, from A Course of Love. Now Choose Only Love is telling us the same thing. In this new world we are creating, we will reach Christ-consciousness, and thus our Christ-Self will be in the ascendancy. The Christ-Self is the living Christ, for no longer is the term “Christ” reserved just for Jesus. It is a plural concept in the new world, for all of us share the Christ spirit.
We will still “do” things, but our primary responsibility is to “being.” And this is a great relief. “Doing,” all too often, made us think that we had to earn our way into heaven. Not so.
Doing and being complement each other in this in-between time. As A Course of Love makes clear, Jesus’ way was largely doing, but Mary’s was being, and therein lies the difference. Those of us still called to doing will be helped by those called to being. And vice-versus. We are all in this together.
Being allows for more rest than does doing, or so we might imagine. It is good that we are moving into a new era, where being will teach us how to live.
We never had to “earn” our way into heaven, and now we know it for sure. Just being ourselves will take us straight to heaven, even heaven on earth.
