I find the book incredibly inspiring and I would like to share some of the best stuff with you as this book really changed my life and my understanding of it!
Here are a few nice ones:
Everyone does their best
I am going to tell you this: there are no “rotten apples.” There are only people who disagree with your point of view on things, people who construct a different model of the world. I am going to tell you this: No persons do anything inappropriate, given their model of the world.
The highest feeling is the experience of unity with All That Is. This is the great return to Truth for which the soul yearns. This is the feeling of perfect love.
Perfect love is to feeling what perfect white is to color. Many think that white is the absence of color. It is not. It is the inclusion of all color. White is every other color that exists, combined.
So, too, is love not the absence of an emotion (hatred, anger, lust, jealousy, covetousness), but the summation of all feeling. It is the sum total. The aggregate amount. The everything.
Thus, for the soul to experience perfect love, it must experience every human feeling.
How can I have compassion on that which I don’t understand? How can I forgive in another that which I have never experienced in Myself? So we see both the simplicity and the awesome magnitude of the soul’s journey. We understand at last what it is up to:
The purpose of the human soul is to experience all of it—so that it can be all of it.
How can it be up if it has never been down, left if it has never been right? How can it be warm if it knows not cold, good if it denies evil? Obviously the soul cannot choose to be anything if there is nothing to choose from. For the soul to experience its grandeur, it must know what grandeur is. This it cannot do if there is nothing but grandeur. And so the soul realizes that grandeur only exists in the space of that which is not grand. The soul, therefore, never condemns that which is not grand, but blesses—seeing in it a part of itself which must exist for another part of itself to manifest.
The job of the soul, of course, is to cause us to choose the grandeur—to select the best of Who You Are—without condemning that which you do not select.
This is a big task, taking many lifetimes, for you are wont to rush to judgment, to call a thing “wrong” or “bad” or “not enough,” rather than to bless what you do not choose.
Living in meditation and joy
So daily meditation is a good idea.
A good idea? Yes. Yet know again what I have just said here. The song of the soul
may be sung many ways. The sweet sound of silence may be heard many times.
Some hear the silence in prayer. Some sing the song in their work. Some seek the
secrets in quiet contemplation, others in less contemplative surroundings.
When mastery is reached—or even intermittently experienced—the noises of the
world can be muffled, the distractions quieted, even in the midst of them. All of life
becomes a meditation.
All of life is a meditation, in which you are contemplating the Divine. This is called
true wakefulness, or mindfulness.
Experienced in this way, everything in life is blessed. There is struggle and pain and
worry no more. There is only experience, which you may choose to label in any way
you wish. You may choose to label all of it perfection.
So use your life as a meditation, and all the events in it. Walk in wakefulness, not as
one asleep. Move with mindfulness, not mindlessly, and do not tarry in doubt and
fear, neither in guilt nor self-recrimination, yet reside in permanent splendor in the
assurance that you are grandly loved. You are always One with Me. You are forever
welcome. Welcome home.
For your home is in My heart, and Mine in yours. I invite you to see this in life as you
will surely see it in death. Then you will know that there is no death, and that what
you have called life and death are both part of the same unending experience.
We are all that is, all that ever was, and all that ever will be, world without end.
Why do bad things happen
The classic posing of the question is usually something like: If God is all-perfect and all-loving, why would God create pestilence and famine, war and disease, earthquakes and tornados and hurricanes and all manner of natural disaster, deep personal disappointment, and worldwide calamity?
The answer to this question lies in the deeper mystery of the universe and the highest meaning of life.
I do not show My goodness by creating only what you call perfection all around you. I do not demonstrate My love by not allowing you to demonstrate yours.
As I have already explained, you cannot demonstrate love until you can demonstrate not loving. A thing cannot exist without its opposite, except in the world of the absolute. Yet the realm of the absolute was not sufficient for either you or Me. I existed there, in the always, and it is from where you, too, have come.
In the absolute there is no experience, only knowing. Knowing is a divine state, yet the grandest joy is in being. Being is achieved only after experience. The evolution is this: knowing, experiencing, being. This is the Holy Trinity—the Triune that is God.
God the Father is knowing—the parent of all understandings, the begetter of all experience, for you cannot experience that which you do not know.
God the Son is experiencing—the embodiment, the acting out, of all that the Father knows of Itself, for you cannot be that which you have not experienced.
God the Holy Spirit is being—the disembodiment of all that the Son has experienced of Itself; the simple, exquisite is-ness possible only through the memory of the knowing and experiencing.
This simple being is bliss. It is God-state, after knowing and experiencing Itself. It is that for which God yearned in the beginning. (Of course, you are well past the point where you must have it explained to you that the father-son descriptions of God have nothing to do with gender).
