正是你

親愛的朋友,
 
你可知道,在此世上,你比任何經典、教義、哲學,甚至宗教,更堪稱為「人性昇華」的推手。更好說,你是世上唯一能促成這一昇華的軸心力量
 
任何教義或學說都沒有能力示現上天的愛;而唯有示現出來的愛,才有促進昇華或進化的作用,但沒有人能教你如何示現這一種愛。所有的宗教或靈修最多只能將你帶到內在充滿掙扎與決定的那個樞紐,在那兒,你學習臣服,不只說:「願祢的旨意承行」,你更具體地放下自己的意願而選擇祂的大願
 
切莫期待任何經典或教義能夠啟示給你神的面目,那等於緣木求魚。過於崇拜某本經典或學說,反會阻礙你回歸自己心中的聖壇。我們都在那兒等候你,你的解脫也在那兒等候著你。
 
這本來不是一件難事,但你若受經典文字所誤導,過於執著於那些外在的助緣,反而舉步維艱。別把這些文字當成偶像崇拜,更不必讓你的生活繞著這些文字打轉,它們最多只能吸引你進入心內,到了那兒以後,你就該放下這些指路的助緣了。懷著單純而謙虛的心向祂全然開放,切莫把那引領你到祂那兒的指標和祂甘甜的愛混為一談了,同樣的,你也不可把逼得你無路可退才轉向祂求助的那些痛苦經歷與祂混為一談了。
 
只要是能幫你中止荒唐無稽的作為,引你進入內在聖壇的事物,不論是什麼,你都該感恩,但不要去崇拜那些促成你發心而接受了天賦產業的道具
 
你的心靈一經開啟,你就成了那個「愛」(那是無法傳授的),一切都在愛中煥然一新了。於是,你開始參與了天父的事業,所舉手投足,都含有前所未見的創新性。
 
 
Dear friends,
 
Do you know that you are a more efficacious voice for transformation in the world than any book, teaching, philosophy or religion? In fact, you are the only dynamic point of transformation that exists!
 
Teachings and thought systems have not the capacity to embody Love, and only Love embodied is transformational. How to be the presence of Love cannot be taught. Therefore, all that any religious or spiritual teaching worth its salt can do is point you in the direction of that inner point of honest struggle and decision, wherein you yield to God – where you do more than say, "Thy will be done," and actually set aside your own in favor of His.
 
Do not ask any book or teaching to reveal God to you. It is impossible. To revere a document or a set of words will only distract you from the reverence due the altar in your heart where We await you, and your freedom from illusion, too.
 
It is so easy, but preoccupation with external props can make it difficult if they are used improperly. Do not make gods of them and bow to them. Do not revolve your life around their words, but let the words inspire you to go within. From there release the words that helped you to that inner place, and open up to Him in all simplicity, humility. Don't hold Him to the words that brought you to the point of feeling His sweet love for you, just as you would not hold Him to the suffering it sometimes takes to bring you to your knees and open up your heart.
 
Whatever brings you to that place within where all the bullshit stops, be grateful for. But do not idolize the means by which your honesty came into play and opened up the door to your Inheritance. Once opened, you will be the Love that can't be taught, and transformation will occur, for you will be about your Father's business, hopelessly original in everything you say and do and be.
