We are All One
Time in this body -- Our
time in this body is not infinite. Time itself is infinite, and We are, too—but our time in this particular body is not. This, then, is Gods Gift. This, then, is the Treasure.
Time in this body is the Treasure of Treasures.
When we are young, we imagine that life is going to last forever. As we get older we see clearly that we have a limited number of years here. Our time in this body is not infinite. Time itself is infinite, and We are, too—but our time in this particular body is not. This, then, is Gods Gift. This, then, is the Treasure. Time in this body is the Treasure of Treasures.
At some point during that time we realize that each moment is golden. We see that every second is meant for something—or, at the very least, can be used for something that is quite good. That is, in fact, extraordinary. Each second can be used for the molding and the creating and the experiencing of The Self in its Next Grandest Version.
We do not have to continue replaying the versions of the past. We do not have to be who we always were. We do not have to continue as we have been, acting as we have been, believing what we have been, accepting what we have been, becoming what we have been. We do not have to remain the same. Not from year to year, not from month to month, not even from week to week or day to day. Not even, from second to second.
The great secret of life is that we can change ourselves and change our lives in an instance. We can engage in the process of Self Creation from moment to moment. In fact, we are doing so, whether we want to be or not. This is happening. It is not a question of whether it is going on, it is merely a question of whether we know it is going on, and of whether we are watching it or causing it.
As we get older and begin to understand all of this more profoundly, we feel moved to make some important inquiries. We begin to ask what is called The Essential Questions.
Every story should answer these questions: Who, What, When, Where, Why?
And so, it all turns out to be very simple. Who am I? What am I doing here? When am I going to do it? Where am I going? Why?
These are the two Primary Questions in All Relationships. It is vitally important to ask and answer them in the right order. That is, in the order that works; in the order that is functional. If you ask those two questions in reverse order, what results is dysfunctionality. Yet most people ask them in exactly that way. Who is going with me? Now, where am I going?
No wonder people get off track. No wonder people wake up at 45 or 50 and look into the mirror, trying to figure out what happened to their lives. Yet it's easy to understand how these two got switched around. Most people are desperately afraid of being alone. They would rather be lost than alone. So they lose their way, but at least they have company.
Once we confront our challenge with being alone, once we solve the problem we have with the idea of no one being alongside of us—which we can only do when we answer the first Essential Question, Who am I?—then we are free at last to ask the Primary Questions in All Relationships in the functional order: Where am I going? Who is going with me?
This changes everything. And the irony of this is that we are, from that point on, hardly ever alone. And that is because we have become such dynamic beings—wholly alive, fully self-expressed, completely confident, and totally secure in who we are—that everyone wants to be around us, including a whole host of people who could qualify as that Significant Other for whom we had formerly been searching so desperately that we were willing to give up our very sense of who we are in order to find him or her.
