“All of humanity’s problems stem from man’s inability to sit quietly in a room alone. ”
Moreover, our personal growth process may at times inspire uprisings against our natural preferences. Source
“Wisdom hides in your openness. It hides behind the distortion of conditioning, but it’s there … Wisdom arises out of the awareness of what you are, as opposed to what you are not. Love yourself” ~ Ra Uru Hu
From the Course of Miracles T
“Heaven and earth shall pass away” means they will not continue to exist as separate states. My word, which is the resurrection and the life, shall not pass away because life is eternal. You are the work of God, and his work is wholly lovable and wholly loving. This is how humans must think of themselves in their hearts because this is what they are ~ Course of Miracles VI. T-1.V.3 [modifications for gender made].
LifeServing Communication changes our consciousness so habits of our past are replaced by the passion of the present ~ Pan Vera
Illusion of Needs from Course of Miracles
You want peace can find it only by complete forgiveness. No learning is acquired by anyone unless he wants to learn it and believes in some way he needs it. While lack does not exist in the creation of God, it’s very apparent in what you have made. It is, in fact, the essential difference between them. Lack implies you would be better off in the state somehow different from the one you’re in. Until the “separation” which is the meaning of the “fall” nothing was lacking. There were no needs at all. Needs arise only one you deprive yourself. You act accordingly to the particular order of needs you establish. This, in turn, depends on your perception of what you are.
P – 1. VI. 2. A sense of separation from God is the only lack you really need to correct. This sense of separation would never have arisen if you have not distorted your perception of truth and had thus perceived yourself as lacking. The idea of order of needs arose because, having made this fundamental error, you’ve already fragmented yourself into levels with different needs. As you integrate to become one, and your needs become one accordingly. Unified needs lead to a unified action, because this produces a lack of conflict.
T- 1. VI. 4. The real purpose of this world is to use it to correct your unbelief. You can never control the effects of fear yourself, because you made fear, and you believe in what you made. In attitude, then, though not in content, you resemble your Creator, Who has perfect faith in his Creations because He created them. Belief produces the acceptance of existence. This is why you can believe what no one else thinks is true. It is true for you because it was made by you.
T-1.VI.5. All aspects of fear are untrue because they do not exist at the creative level, and therefore they do not exist at all. To whatever extent you are willing to submit your beliefs to this test, to this extent are your perceptions corrected. In sorting out the false from the true, the miracle proceeds along these lines:
Perfect love casts out fear.
If fear exists, there is not yet perfect love.
Only perfect love exists,
Where there is fear, it produces an illusory state which does not exist.
Believe this and you will be free, only God can establish the solution and this faith is His Gift.
Tao Te Ching #71
Not-knowing is the true knowledge.
Presuming to know is a disease.
First realize how you are sick
Then choose a path back towards health.
The master is her own physician.
She has healed herself of all knowing.
Thus she is truly whole
Tao Te Ching # 46
when a country is in harmony with the Tao, the factories make trucks and tractors.
When a country goes counter to Tao, warheads are stockpiled outside the cities.
There is no greater illusion than fear,
no greater wrong done preparing to defend yourself,
no greater misfortune than having an enemy.
Whoever can see through all fear will always be safe.
Tao Te Ching # 42
The Tao gives birth to the one.
One gives birth to two.
Two gives birth to three.
Three gives birth to all things.
All things have their backs to the female and stand facing the male.
When male and female combine, all things achieve harmony.
Ordinary men hate solitude.
But the master makes use of it,
embracing his aloneness, realizing
he is one with the whole universe
