There is only eternity
and there is only this moment.
Both are true. Our little ego conscious minds cannot conceive
of this. When we come into embodiment, we create the illusions
of time and space.
We think in linear fashion. It seems as though one moment follows
another in a continuous flow. In truth, all "time"
is simultaneous - one 'now' moment. Our ego conscious mind needs
to think in terms of past, present, and future to make sense
of it all. Soul knows
the Truth about both
Soul watches as we operate within the illusions of time and space.
Whenever we feel urgency - that driving, impelling,
demanding pressure, we know we're in ego. Urgency is the hallmark
of the ego. Ego is about Doing. Staying busy. Accomplishing.
Producing. Filling the time. It wants to rush from one thing
to the next with its external focus. Soul/Being
is present unceasingly as a continuum of Consciousness.
Always present. Ever patient. Soul knows that we have all of
eternity to Wake-Up.
It also knows we can do so in the wink of an eye. With Soul,
there is no urgency. No rush. We can and do move forward in an
inchworm fashion. Just as a plant will naturally grow toward
the light - we humans have a natural inclination to grow toward
the "Light" - toward clarity, Love,
and expanded Consciousness.
We sometimes get in the way of our own growth. We self-sabotage.
We're also capable of conscientiously committing to our growth.
We can become Self-Realized
Beings by bringing our intention and attention to our growth.
Doing The Work as part of our growth toward the Light. But Soul knows there is no
urgency. We can Awaken here and now in this lifetime
- this embodiment. Or we can Awaken after we leave
the body and are back in the formless.
We can also come back into embodiment and Awaken
then. We have unlimited time/timelessness,
to Awaken. There is no urgency.
