…and more from Letter Seventeen “Three More Suggestions”

Because I find this Letter one of the most poignant and informative for our Self Survival I am continuing on from the last post. As the days follow I will be giving still more of this Letter. And should you want the full impact of this amazing material one click to your right will get you the book.

…“How can there be more than one peace point if they represent the state of oneness?”

Don’t take me too literally. I speak in metaphor when I refer to the formless. There will be seeming contradictions and paradoxes. When you feel such a reaction, instead of following your mind into doubt and skepticism, I recommend using your inner senses to track the paradox down to its own point of oneness. There you will always find a portal into Source.

Since there are no forms within this space, there are no numbers. You are correct, there cannot be more than one point. But this ‘one’ is not the number one. It is the undifferentiated Absolute. What introduces quantity is your mind, your sense of time and your perspective, from the realm of duality and multiplicity. If you prefer, you might simply look at one peace point appearing and reappearing in your space. Yet, there is also a benefit to seeing these points as many: It is the notion of pure abundance of opportunity for reaching into Source.

From your individuated perspective, these seem to be arising; they seem to be something new. There are two reasons for this: One, you have been cut off from the knowing of your oneness by virtue of the human stage of evolution, and the Veil of Forgetfulness; so you seem to be encountering a phenomenon that you’ve never seen before. Innately, however, you will recognize this experience of peace as a return to the authenticity of being. It feels like coming home, simultaneous with moving into new territory.

Two, the quality of newness is the hallmark of the living Now. As you reacquaint yourself with your true nature, with this livingness, you are tapping into its perpetual creative force. It is always new, always beginning, without end; this is another paradox. It is eternally moving into greater expression and consciousness in the essence of stillness. This is the sublime stimulus for all the passions of Life.

As your awareness rises and simultaneously descends, you enter the peace or bliss state. You feel invigorated and renewed instantly. You feel the silent power radiating from the dimensionless point. This changes everything! The more often you can enter these points, the more changed you will be. It will transform your feelings about the world, about what to do in the world, and about who you are. This is ultimate empowerment. It all starts with simple noticing, bringing out the known from the unknown.

“You make it sound so easy. Yet for most humans, sitting that still and feeling that peace is beyond the ability to achieve.”

Remember, this is not about achieving. You cannot accomplish what I’m talking about. To achieve it would be to make it a thing. It is not a thing at all, this peace. It is formless essence, without boundary, definition or structure…
