"In your life, you forget your "Always State" or "Always Form". You forget everything. However, you are already always that! There is only eternity, knowledge and bliss. But you're still terrified it might not be true. That is ego at work. Ego keeps one from being free. We want to taste all these experiences. And the ego makes it possible. Don't curse the ego. So many scriptures curse the ego self. Instead, look at your life as about choices, experiences and desires--that you are already liberated. Don't be afraid of desire. That is why you're here, to taste, live."
"The God force is separate and not separate, whole and not whole at the same time. Really, it is not "sliceable", not reducible. Even when it is sliced into individual energies, it does not diminish the total God force or the power of the individual. Each of you has the potential for the God force potency. However, (and this is a very important caveat), no individual can overcome the God force. There is a misinterpretation, then, that Satan is as powerful as God. Limited energy cannot live on its own. Every experience must exist and yet they (limiting forces) can never exist on their own. Limited energy, then, is the experience of the absence of the God force (as a teacher and as a belief). Therefore, there is no need to fear it. Those choosing such experiences have a need to understand how it feels to believe evil powers exist. Again, I say that those who pursue this route are taking it too personally. They believe the story they made up about themselves. It is similar to a person going into an ice cream store and only choosing one flavor from many. Preoccupied with tasting only one flavor for a very long time, they are probably quite sick and tired of it. Still, they don't want to believe there are any other flavors available."
"The agreement, then, is to go on believing in that particular flavor. Here's where reincarnation and its opportunity for experiencing a vast array of perspectives, "agreements", enters in. Another life offers another opportunity, a chance to "switch flavors" so to speak. Taking oneself too personally, however, can cause a soul to get caught up, stuck in redundancy: in a particular (and unfortunate) flavor. In such instances the individual is forgetting he has the ability to choose his flavors, his lives. Please avoid taking even life's positive accomplishments or identities too seriously, as well. People can get "hung up" in similar lifetimes, identifying too strongly with even an incarnation's positive achievements and personas. Clinging to any past identity (expansive or limiting), then, acts as a roadblock, preventing one from progressing to other flavors (beliefs and experiences)."
"A powerful meditation is when contemplating the oneness of everything is to find something's unique qualities. For example, observing an island's wholeness and then focusing upon the uniqueness of a single stone. Westerners are dealing with this dichotomy on a grand scale. This meditation is simple but powerful. It's like physical exercise. One can practice it just once a day or as often as one likes. Other examples to meditate upon (other than an individual stone on the island beach) are faces in a crowd or a leaf on a tree. Each person (in the crowd) is unique and yet (at that very moment) part of the whole. The same is true for leaves on the trees. Practicing this deceptively easy meditation helps each of us to see reality. Some need to practice distancing themselves from materialism while others need to get more grounded in the material world. This meditation specifically balances these two types of people."
"People believe that death is a punishment from God rather than a natural progression, a doorway to other realities. By having such a grim perspective on death, they make it a fearful and painful experience."
