Hey, it's my life!
Are you sure? We
experience physical life so we can take our lives
personally. This is a significant aspect of the human experience.
It makes for a lot of fun. However, this is not the end all and
be all. There is so much more. The ego
personality is such a miniscule aspect of who you truly are.
Yet it is supremely important to the overall scheme of things.
We experience life through a limited band of awareness called
the personal to
be able to fully comprehend and appreciate our unlimitedness
as God. It is our launching
pad into Infinity.
The personal defines
us, gives us identity, and grounding in matter and form. When
we are ready, we can throw off the chains of the ego personality
and propel ourselves into All That Is. To be born again really
means to leave the cocoon of our ego personality and spread our
wings into the unlimited nature of Being,
of the Impersonal/Soul/Divine.
Now, the real fun begins. Because we have
had experience of the limited ego
personality we can fully appreciate our freedom in Infinity
from having known the opposite. We have a priceless point of
reference. From knowing what we are not, we can know who we truly
are. Instead of being merely a person, we become an event, a
happening, a process of eternal
creation. Free from all constraints of time and space, we soar
joyously in ecstatic bliss. Stretch out into the Impersonal/Soul/Divine
and know yourself as you truly are. Once you know the Impersonal/Soul/Divine
your life takes on a whole new flavor. You can really start to
live your life because ego personality is very limited. Knowing
the Impersonal/Soul/Divine gives you access to experiences of
freedom while still being housed in a body. It's the best of
both worlds. Let your spirit soar in the Impersonal/Soul/Divine
while enjoying the delights of the body:
sex, food, music, dancing
Not taking your life personally is really
about being in service. It is God
work. God moves through our lives as the Impersonal/Soul/Divine
within each person. God enjoys being a person through you. How
does it feel to have God
look through your eyes, hear with your ears, and feel through
your skin? When you move into the Impersonal/Soul/Divine you
experience your Oneness as God
individualized. This may sound contradictory. It is paradoxical.
God's funny that way.
