The Meaning Of It All

By David Black

Chapter One

We are free to accept, or not to accept.

We are only who we perceive ourself to be.

Life is a remembrance of who we truly are.

Search within.

Our labyrinth is thoroughly known.

Absolutely nothing happens by co-incidence!

Co-incidence, is when The All just chooses to remain anonymous.

Follow the connections.

Develop in the direction of least resistance.

The whole world is the Temple of The All.

It takes all kinds to make a world.

If we are to live in this world together, we'll just have to learn to get along.

We are to live, as though our word is our life. If we don't keep our word, we don't keep our life!

Only hurt people, hurt people.

That which gives us the greatest pleasure, is that which causes the greatest pain.

Always remember, that people are weakest at what they put out.

The one who hurts us the most, may be our greatest teacher.

Those who anger us, control us!

The only real competition, is with ourself.

What we do in the world of work, is what we could, not should, be doing for ourself.

By constantly trying to solve other people's problems, we're avoiding solving our own!

When we do b-lame, we are being lame, but when we do respons-ability, we are able to respond.

Friendships and relationships, are the mirrors in which we discover ourself.

To have a relationship with others, first, we must have a relationship with ourself.

A mistake, is not a mistake, if we learn from it.

We never start dealing with a problem, until we give that problem, its correct name.

When we go into our childhood wound, we discover our lifetime's treasure.

We are forgiven, as we have forgiven.

Love, holds no grievances.

Behold others in their perfection.

Our life's drama conspires to make us feel those negative emotions repressed since childhood. The key to freedom, is just to feel them clearly, experience them and then, let them go. For when an issue loses its emotional voltage on us, it ceases to be an issue.

Joy and happiness, is the unmistakable sign, of the presence of The Divine!

We keep getting it, until we 'get' it!

What we resist, persists!

If nothing changes, guess what? Nothing changes!

When it comes to doing our inner work, there's no rush ~ but hurry up!

Be not a 'dog's body' ~ be a God-body!

If we are in the physical body, we still have inner work to do.

We live inside the body, but we are not the body, just like our body lives inside a house, but it's not the house.

When we release our 'baggage' and our attachments to the physical, we become a star in the sky.

And, what does a star do?

A star shines The Light for others to see, in the 'darkness'.

We don't need as many things, as we think we need.

The more we give up, the more we 'get'!

In Truth, nothing can be lost in the non-physical.

The journey of healing, is becoming whole.

For us to be whole, we embrace our inner, opposite-sexed energy.

To be whole, means to include everything and everyone, with no exception.

We are all teachers, by the way we live our lives.

Say "YES" to All of Life!

What our mind knows as paradox, our heart knows as Truth.

When we are awake, we are asleep, and when we are asleep, we are our most awake.

Truly, we are spiritual beings having a physical experience!

Thoughts are energy.

There is no point in us being so highly spiritual, that we are no earthly good.

The Mystic's Prayer: "Lead me from the darkness to The Light, from illusion to Reality, from death to Immortality".

Always ask The All, in the affirmative, as though, it's already been received, by using the words "Thank you for ..."

Ask The All, then, allow your angels, to bring you the Message from The All.

Nothing, can disturb the deep peace of our soul.

What peace, there is in silence!

It's in the silence, do we hear Our Small, Still Voice.

All Awareness, starts with The Self.

All the answers, lay within.

When We all speak, with Our One True Voice, We are all singing, The Uni-Verse.

Thy Will, not my will, be done!

It's not about doing ~ it's about being!

Live life, in this Sacred Moment.

In Truth, there is only this Present Moment; there is only this Eternal Now.

It's not about thinking ~ it's about not thinking!

When We are in Awareness, We of Ourself, do nothing.

Meditate, and believe no one.

Our meditation, doesn't take the place of our prayer, our meditation, is the fruit of our prayer.

What is meditation, if not the awareness of Awareness?

Be still, and acknowledge ~ I am The All.

The quickest way of knowing the Unknown, is to let go of the known.

In Truth, there is no time, and there is no space.

Our own conception of The All is the last obstacle to overcome, in 'seeing' The All.

In Truth, there is no separation.

We are never alone ~ We are Always All One.

Wherever We are, The All is.

As above, so below ~ as within, so without.

1 = ∞

All is One.
