Intro to Part I

LESSON 12

I am upset because I see a meaningless world.

+++

The ego-mind is distressed by, that-which-is-neither good nor bad, in nor out, up nor down, right nor left. The ego is comfortable with differences and distinctions because separation is justified by it. The Oneness of reality must be painted over with the stripes of differences and distinction, else the ego is distressed.

Differences and distinctions make partitions and barriers to separate this from that. We hide behind these barriers for protection, forgetting that the barriers themselves justify our fear. We have accepted that we are alone, isolated because of these barriers.

We forget Oneness. We forget to laugh. We forget what we are. Fear is our experience.

Without barriers, there is simply Oneness.

If Oneness is true, there can be no “other” to fear.

This is why fear has no place in Oneness.

Intro to Part I

LESSON 11

 My meaningless thoughts are showing me a meaningless world.

+++

What you currently call thinking occurs as a voice that you hear in your head. You have identified with this “chatterer” and have accepted all of its chatter as though it was you “thinking”. What you have overlooked is that you have been made “the listener”.

 The voice chatters on, about differences and distinction and why they are important. It chatters on, about the threat that results from these differences.

Because of your identification with this voice, you accept the world-view of the chatterer and you seldom question it. When you do question the validity of its chatter, you do so based on its world view. In other words, you question the voice in this area but not in that area because that area is different and that difference is important (says the voice).

As long as you seem to have a body, you must respect the body you seem to have. “Care” of the body also makes differences seem important.

To the extent that you believe differences are important, forgiveness will be a challenge. This is the barrier to the experience of loves presence.

There can be no barriers that separate, if Oneness is true.

LESSON 10

Intro to Part I

LESSON 10

 My thoughts do not mean anything.

+++

In Oneness, actual thinking occurs outside of time and space. What “becomes known” through real thinking, is the “always known”. Even that which becomes known in time, seemed to come to you but when it is realized, is always and ever present. It feels as though it belongs to you or, in a sense, IS you eternally.

In Oneness, the known and the knower are no different.

What you now call thinking, occurs as a voice in your head. This is a process that makes you the audience. This is Two-ness, not Oneness. What you have overlooked is that you have been made the listener. You are REALLY the space into which the speaker speaks. You have identified with this “chatterer” and accept all its chatter as though it was you “thinking”.

You are upset but are not fully aware of your upset. It is like a constant, pain that you will not fully recognize until it is not there anymore. It is like the constant noise of nature that is noticed only by its absence before a big storm.

You are upset because you suspect that the Truth is available but cannot be known within the Subject / Object process that you now call “thinking”. Although “buried” in your mind, the Truth of Oneness is not entirely forgotten. The chatterer argues against this Truth.

The voice chatters on about differences and distinction and why they are important. It chatters about the threat resulting from these differences and this is also upsetting. This upset and the seeming importance of these differences distracts you from questioning the lie of separation.

You are not alone in this experience.

LESSON 9

Intro to Part I

LESSON 9

 I see nothing as it is now.

+++

Actual seeing occurs outside of time and space. Actual seeing notices differences but finds them unimportant like the boundaries of a shadow falling on a leaf. The shadow does not cut the leaf that it falls across. The cutting of the leaf can only be true, if the difference between the shaded and unshaded area is of significance.

What we call “seeing” is an attempt to cut (shatter) what is Whole, Complete, Perfect and One.

You “see” what-is-Whole through a lens that shows you a shattered existence, much like using a kaleidoscope as a looking glass. You have convinced yourself that each different color shape and angle is a sane reflection of reality. You have assigned meaning where there is none. This meaning allows you to organize parts of what you see and while other parts defy meaning. This is upsetting because, in your mind is buried the memory of Truth, which is known to you as wholeness and completeness (Oneness). There are no parts in this Oneness. You are upset but are not fully aware of this upset because it is like a constant, dull pain that you would only recognize when it is absent.

The importance that you have assigned to some parts of what you see, is different than the importance you have assigned to other parts that you see. This seeming importance distracts you from questioning the lie of differences, distinctions and separation.

This seeming importance, takes your attention away from actual seeing, which can only occur in the “now”.

Intro to Part I

LESSON 8

 My mind is preoccupied with past thoughts.

+++

You believe time is true. The past seems well worth your attention because you imagine that it allows you to control and predict the future. This makes time seem even more important. Its seeming importance distracts you from questioning the lie of difference and separation.

In Oneness there is only one NOW. There is no time.

Time is an attempt to separate eternity into different parts; each being different in that it seems to follow in a sequence with other moments.

Real thinking occurs outside of time. Real thought occurs now and now and now and now. Each now is the same now. Time can only be true, if difference is true.

LESSON 7

 I see only the past.

+++

It is in the past, that you have learned the context to interpret today’s experiences. This past is like tinted glasses you have always worn. You are not aware of the tint because you believe that the world is simply “that hue”.

The vision that these lenses show you is a context in which Oneness is not true and the “other” is real and also a threat. You have come to think of this as, “Just the way that it is”.

Intro to Part I

LESSON 6

 I am upset because I see something that is not there.

+++

Notice that one upsetting thing is always more upsetting, more special than another. This makes them both special and different. You are upset and do not remember that differences cannot be true if Oneness is true.

You believe the voice in your head, that you call “My thoughts”. Consider these questions:

Do you have these thoughts or do these thoughts have you?

Are you the “thinker” or could you simply be the audience?
