"But, you are going to have to remain with me. You are going to have to maintain the idea of being Here with me and not actually in the events that seem to be transpiring on a finite and polarized basis."
fficeffice" />>I won't guess as to all of the reasons one must "remain with me", but logically it would help us stay disentangled in whatever ego mess it is that we are witnessing. The ole unattached-to-outcome thing. If we keep "one ear open" for communications with spirit, it is not as easy to get sucked into the insanity. And being disentangled also helps us be more conscious of the overall event rather than focused on one aspect...our reactions. Which is fuller consciousness...which is why we are here (or perhaps just one reason why...but I'm thinking of God experiencing Himself).>
"...it is the choice for Peace that constitutes the release of the choice for conflict, and therefore the relinquishment of the validation of polarization."
I think for one to really understand this one must have an experience of feeling this Peace Raj speaks of. I feel like I have had a quick taste...and it changes EVERYTHING.
"Polarization disappears in the experience of Peace, as you already know from your practice of meditation."
I have found the above to be so. And again, the call for meditation. The simple act of meditating....it just can't get any easier than that, but still I turn away. sigh. And once more return to a commitment to meditation. Persist, persist, persist as Someone is known to say.
"So, you say, "Why isn't unity with God more dynamically interesting? Why doesn't it arouse great fervor and motivation for following through to that moment of Joining?" "
This question can only be asked by the ego. Great fervor and motivation is not desired when in the grace of Peace.
"Again, "A mind that's changed against its will, is of the same opinion still." "
It sounds like the ego mind must change. And if the egoic mind changes then it will not exist. hmmmmm Must be that "lap" analogy. Seems like I have a question about this ego changing thing percolating, but it's not ready yet.
