“From the soul using the body as an instrument, it does not follow that the Soul must share the body’s experience: a man does not himself feel all the experiences of the tools with which he is working.” Plotinus 204-270 AD
I am not my body! You are not your body! We are all of us Spirit. Spirit is not physical, nor can there be “physical”, for we live and breathe and have our being within the mind of God. There is no place, no power, but the infinite mind of God. We are the unchanging forever beings observing this physical illusion for a purpose as yet unknown. We are like a person coming into the theater at the middle of the show; we do not truly know the beginning. Nor do we know the end of the story!
We must learn as Jesus taught; to be in the “world” but not of it. This is the conundrum. As in any game we want to give 100% and yet not lose our way nor forget who we are. As young adults leaving home we are told to remember who we are as we face the temptations of the world. We are reminded to choose wisely our friends and our pathways. As spirit we must also guide our creations to be the expression of our true being. It is said we are many and yet we are one! The one is just that ONE. Spirit cannot be broken into a million pieces for that would mean more than one. Spirit cannot be contained in time or space for that would deny the everywhere present mind of God within which we live and have our being. We cannot be lost as we have never, except in our mind, left our heavenly home.
Our breath is the incoming and sustaining and maintaining of the physical illusion we call life. We breathe life into our creation and it appears real. When we no longer breathe into our creations they no longer exist.
As spirit observing our creations, we cannot in truth be injured or harmed. “WE” are still conscious after so called death; so obviously “we” were not harmed.
One of the agreements of this vibration is that we cannot hold onto anything…..not even our breath. Every event that occurs is energy and must continue to move. When we hold onto, or attach ourselves to any incident of our creation, it becomes stuck. Stuck energy, good or not so good, blocks the channels of our creations yet to come. We have prepared a dazzling array of events to challenge and to enchant us. And because it is a mind game; no one can be hurt. For this reason there is no condemnation in heaven and at the final curtain we can all laugh and get ready for the next act.
What we can do from our point of observation is remember who and what we are, and then embrace this glorious mystery and enjoy our creation; knowing all the while that it is a creation of mind.
Namaste! emmy chetkin
