On Being Human

Home ] Up ] Books ]

There are three basic wisdoms in the Universe. They are:

1. We Are All One
2. There's Enough.
3. There's Nothing We Have To Do.

If you decide that "we are all one," you would cease treating each other the way you do.

If you decided that "there's enough," you would share everything with everyone.

If you decided that "there's nothing we have to do," you would stop trying to use "doingness" to solve your problems, but rather, move, and come from, a state of being which would cause your experience of those problems to disappear, and the conditions themselves thus evaporate.

This is perhaps the most important truth of all for you to understand at this stage in your evolution. Remember this always, and make it your mantra:

There's nothing I have to have, there's nothing I have to do, and there's nothing I have to be, except exactly what I'm being right now.

This does not mean that "having" and "doing" will be eliminated from your life. It means that what you experience yourself having or doing will spring from your being--not lead you to it.

When you come from "happiness," you do certain things because you are happy--as opposed to the old paradigm in which you did things that you hoped would make you happy.

When you come from "wisdom," you do certain things cause you are wise, not because you are trying to get wisdom.

When you come from "love," you do certain things because you are love, not because you want to have love.

Everything changes; everything turns around, when you come from "being," rather than seeking to "be." You cannot "do" your way to "being." Whether you are trying to "be" happy, be wise, be love--or be God--you cannot "get there" by doing.

Here is the Divine Dichotomy. The way to "get there" is to "be there." Just be where you choose to get! It's that simple. There's nothing you have to do.

You want to be happy? Be happy. You want to be wise? Be wise. You want to be love? Be love. That is Who You Are in any event!

You are My Beloved.
