“The very same being could say, ‘I am much too grand to swim in a pool. I believe I’ll put the little body on an airplane and fly to the grand ocean, to swim in the midst, unbounded by a box.’ The experience of that swimming is much different.
“Your consciousness is exactly like that. All that you experience from the moment you awake I the morning until you awaken in the morning again (because there is no down time)—everything you see, everything you experience—is the direct result of where and how you have drawn the lines on the blank canvas of consciousness. And you are free at any time to erase them and draw differently.” (“The Way of Transformation,” WOM, Chapter 13, Page 164)
We are in the midst of passages from The Way of Mastery that encourage us to be limitless. We have so often, out of fear and anxieties, placed ourselves in boxes, and then closed the lids.
We don’t have to do this anymore. Even if we are quarantined from the coronavirus, our spirit can be free, and this free spirit makes for a limitless experience for us. The mind is its own place, as Milton told us in Paradise Lost. We can open ourselves up, but the only way that I know to do that is to love, and love mightily. Fear contracts our experience, for we are afraid of the pain and suffering that fear brings to us.
Let love overwhelm us today. Let Love, God Himself, overwhelm us every day.
