“Here, at this subtle level, the drop of milk has seemingly separated itself and now feels awareness of itself as separate from the body of milk. And for a moment, for just a moment, there is pure joy, because it is still the One doing it—out of entertainment, out of pure play, out of the sheer exuberance of extending itself and its infinite power, ceaselessly and without limitation.” (“The Way of Transformation,” WOM, Chapter 16, Page 191)
In The Way of Mastery, believed to be channeled from Jesus by Jayem in live channeling, we see a comparison of the separation from God with a drop of milk that rises above the rest of the milk. The drop of milk has seemingly become separated, though it is still milk, and will fall back down in the glass momentarily.
We are like that. We thought ourselves separated from God, and we perched precariously away from Him. We thought the only way we could survive was to form an ego, a false self who would take care of us as God once did.
We didn’t do so well, being all alone and separate. And it was inevitable that we would one day fall back into God, just as the drop of milk returns to the rest of the milk in the glass.
Here Jesus emphasizes the “entertainment” value of what we did. So all is not lost. Our “play” will have a happy ending.
God understands play, our drama that seems so terrible while it is happening, at least part of the time. God is actually our being, playing hide-and-seek with Himself.
We don’t have to fret about the things that life shows us. We take it all so seriously, but there is divine play at work. We can be lighthearted and joyous, for God does not demand seriousness in our return to Him.
He wants us happy.
