I’ve gone through a full day of activity, in and out of various states, and have returned home to write.
And a wisp of bliss arises that I recognize. When I recognize it, it expands.
Instantly any residue from the day disappears and I’m left without a care in the world.
And then a stray thought intrudes. I give my attention to it, taking it away from the bliss. And the bliss rapidly subsides.
And I return to the fear-based activity I was engaged in to sustain and ensure life.
And then I recover bliss again, surfing on a stray wisp. Instantly all care is again forgotten.
Is this what Michael called having one foot in both kingdoms? One foot in the fear-based activity of everyday life and a second foot in the domains of bliss where there’s nothing to fear?
Rather than entering into life from the heart (in balance) and acting from there, I choose to enter from my mind, construing by my wits. Which are fear-based and have never worked.
The fact that I keep doing it shows I’m addicted (or habituated) to the pattern. Since my actions from this space have only ever brought pain, really, one could say that I’m addicted to pain. Rather than being addicted, say, to love.
I need to switch my addiction.
Random thoughts, as I sit enjoying the rising love.
God never said, “Detach from all things.” Detach from that which takes us away from God but strongly attach to that which brings us closer.
In my view, the basic spiritual movement? Turn from the world to God. Turn from the outer world to the inner world.
The purpose of life? To know ourselves as God. For God to meet God in a moment of our enlightenment.
As far as I can see, all we need to do to serve? Flow love out to the world.
I choose to swim in the Ocean of Love and dive in the pools of bliss.
Ordinarily a spiritual student is advised not to talk about their path, experiences, etc. But this is a time when all of us are going up together and so the utmost sharing of what’s been found to work and markers along the way seem to me appropriate here.
