My Holy Beloved One and The Grace of this Living Truth, Life, Divine Intelligence, Godhead; This-One-That-Is Being All in all, This the very awareness reading these words and writing these words, is The immutable, Single, All and Only Presence. There is no other Presence. No amount of labeling or not labeling will have any effect on This Living Perfection that is Being all labels, all form, all matter, all space, all that is seen or unseen, known and unknown. The Living One, The Divine Principle that is Being the warp and woof of all that is, is changeless and eternal. Whether someone likes to make his arms disappear into the chair, or whether someone likes to feel like he is not there in the room, or not, makes not one bit of an iota of difference to This Awareness I Am (you are). Feeling no "you" or feeling 'full of you' both ways are prefecly acceptable but whatever you do or do not do, still, Perfection remains Unchanged by our shennangins. Low and Behold, even an atom bomb cannot destroy Awareness.
Principle, God of all existence is eternal, without beginning and without end, indestructible, and continuous in being, no matter what the tortured meanderings of human activity. And since the Principle continues, so continues all that the Principle is. God the substance and essence of all that is, remains perfect, unabated and untouched—everywhere present and nowhere absent. So, as in my original post here ( and I wrote a whole long thing about it), I dare say labeling is a joy for me, I love words and labels, the more the merrier, bring 'em on. Distinctions are fine and dandy with me, they are a marvel of God. It makes no matter no how to This That I Am, but knowing that to be True sure makes My Life a bowl of cherries.
As some comedian used to say "that's my story and I am stick'in to it"
Much Joy in the this Marvelous Truth, Mistral
This is what I call beyond understanding on the scale of consciousness. Unconditional Love shines through the words and labels. Yes, it seems unpopular to mention God in the awakening business; however, Truth ain't always popular. Jesus was killed for expressing Truth.
I must confess that finally, somebody's posting is resonating in my heart. Loving God is a conscious learning experience for me after I was 35. I had taken agnostic position before that. Three times, the Grace of God enlightened me when I was in the deepest personal hell. The stories are not important, but the lesson was drilled into me three times.
If one really wishes for Truth of Awakening, pray for Divine Help is the most direct method. Other people's experiences, explanations and techniques are all second hand information.
