Random quote: "we're talking about having a new fixation. not a fixation on yourself... on your visions and imaginations.... but a fixation of God........ by looking for God in everything you see and desiring to see what God is meaning right there in the flower or your brothers eyes..... and facilitate that movement by disengaging in criticism and guilt." ~ Raj

Raj excerpt - April 4, 2009

I encourage you this week to meditate daily and meditate only for about ten minutes on this one point. 

I want you to become still . . . as still as you can . . . and then for about ten minutes, I want you just to abide with the thought that you on your own, by means of your very best thinking or worst thinking, cannot know the truth. And that anything you do from that standpoint will be self-deception! 

It sounds awful. Because it sounds like it’s a judgment against you. But it’s not. It’s not a judgment at all. It doesn’t say anything about your inherent or innate presence or validity. All it says is, that if you try to do something in this fashion, it won’t work. And in the knowing that it won’t work and that it never has, and that the only result that has ever been has been self-deception, which means that you’ve been ignorant, all you have to do is stop doing that in order to escape the ignorance. 

So instead of being an awful judgment against you, it’s a stepping stone out of an illegitimate experience of being, one that it’s not your Birthright to be experiencing and one which you need to be free of.
