It is apparently new territory for you, Paul, although you could say it is your “native land.” Nevertheless, as the shift is made from the finite to the infinite view, you are going to have to be a stranger in a strange land, a babe in a new world. Although there will be no aspect of danger involved, it will be necessary to patiently explore, sense, perceive, and understand how to be, rather than do.
On the Journey of awakening we need to learn to be rather than do. This is experienced as a totally new way of being - so we will feel to be a stranger in a strange land.
The Practice is to patiently explore, perceive, sense, and learn how to be rather than do.
.t:SFK - Seek ye First the Kingdom.
RAJ: You are at a point where you need to see that there is only One Cause, only One Action, only One Life, Mind, Being, Consciousness. This does not mean that everything you seem to experience is included in that One Mind, Being, Consciousness, but it means that the step that needs to be taken here is to not deal with specific little “causes.” It means that it is time to have no other gods but God. I don’t care what anybody else seems to have to be doing at the present moment, or whether they are seeming to have to learn this, or be faced with what you are being faced with. YOU HAVE GOT TO HANDLE THIS AS THOUGH YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE! AND YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE TO HANDLE THIS AS THOUGH THERE IS ONLY ONE PRESENCE AND POWER! The time is past to handle anything from the standpoint of “handling” this or that or the other “thing,“—whether it be thought, belief, object, or circumstance.
There is only Oneness, one Cause, one Action, one Life, one Mind, one Being, one Consciousness.
The solution to problems we experience is not to deal with the little "causes" but to lay aside idols and Seek First the Kingdom.
It doesn't matter what is happening for or with anybody else, it is between you and God.
Handle the problems you experience as though You are their only cause, as though you are 100% responsible.
And deal with those problems in Reality - using the only Power and Presence that exists!! That of Being (God).
Raj is making a strong point here, that: There is no other way.
Any other way is the way of illusion and illusion is a mistaken idea that has no existence and can therefore never be a solution. Never.
