THE ORIGINAL INFINITE CORE
THE PURE SPOT WITHIN
A TRANSPARENT CONDUIT OF
THE NEVERBORN/NEVERDIE LIFE
PURGED OF ALL PERSONAL WORDS & THOUGHTS
THE IMPERSONAL LIFE*
BEYOND EARTHLY MEASURE
*The Impersonal Life
Who am I?
I, Who speak with such seeming knowledge and authority?
I AM You, that part of you who IS and KNOWS; WHO KNOWS ALL THINGS,
And always knew, and always was.
that part of you who says I AM and is I AM;
which quickens within as you read,
which responds to this My Word,
which perceives Its Truth,
which recognizes all Truth
and discards all error wherever found.
feeding on error all these years.
For I AM your real Teacher,
the only real one you will ever know,
and the only MASTER;
The Impersonal Life
They are but the expression of your Being,
as you are the expression of My Being;
they are but phases of your human personality,
as You are a phase of My Divine Impersonality.
Rise up and free yourself now and for always
from the domination of your personality,
with its self-inflated and self-glorifying mind and intellect.
For your mind henceforth must be Your servant,
and the intellect Your slave,
if My Word is to penetrate to your Soul consciousness.
I AM come now to your Soul consciousness,
which I have quickened expressly
in preparation for the reception of My Word.
If you can put aside
all your private personal fancies, beliefs and opinions,
which are but the rubbish you have gathered
from the dumping grounds of others;
Then My Word will be to you a source of endless Joy and Blessing.
Be prepared to have this personality of yours
doubt My Word as you read It all along the way;
For its very life is threatened, and it knows it cannot live and thrive
and longer dominate your thinking, your feelings,
your going and coming, as of old,
if you take My Word into your heart
and permit It there to abide.
To make you conscious of My Presence;
For I have likewise prepared your human mind so that it can,
in a measure,
comprehend the meaning of Me.
I have been with you always,
but you did not know it.
The Impersonal Life
Oh Cameleer! Behold the camels!
Head to head, train like, they are drunk!
The commander is drunk,
the vizier is drunk,
the friend is drunk,
the outsider is drunk!
The thunder is as the musician!
The cloud is as the wine bearer
and have made the garden drunk,
the field is drunk,
the flower is drunk,
the thorn is drunk!
For how long will you turn?
Behold the turning of the elements.
The water is drunk,
the wind is drunk,
the earth is drunk,
the fire is drunk!
don’t even ask about the state of the meaning!
The soul is drunk!
The intellect is drunk!
The earth is drunk,
and the mysteries are drunk!
become like dust,
so that you may behold that every particle of the earth
is drunk by the tyrant creator!
(Rumi Ghazal 390)

In the holy instant, the laws of God prevail, and only they have meaning.
The laws of this world cease to hold any meaning at all.
When the Son of God accepts the laws of God as what he gladly wills,
it is impossible that he be bound or limited in any way.
In this instant, he is as free as God would have him be.
For the instant he refuses to be bound,
he is not bound.
ACIM OE T.15. VII
"The Holy Instant
and the Laws of God"
you are ensuring there is no future in your life,
just recycling the past.
--- Mark Twain
If you ARE your Truth, you don't need to think or talk!
Whether it is identification
With a thought
With a feeling
Or with an object
It matters not.
Only identification with the LImitless is
