That which is beyond understanding is that which counts. All that which is known doesn’t need your approbation. It doesn’t need you at all. Encyclopedias are filled with all the known, the examined, the applauded. That which cannot be examined is the fuel of your life.
The power of your life stars, yet it stars in the background. It is a hidden hand. This unseen hand bears no resemblance to the bluffing of the Wizard of Oz. He had a false front. I am speaking of the Truth of All That Is. I am speaking of the Truth that lies behind the stage, that lies way beyond the stage.
Life on Earth is not a set-up, beloveds, yet it is made up the way a bed is made up. It is for you to lie on. You lie on it. You live on it. You do not look at the bed you lie on. As you lie on it, you look up. You look up at the sky above. Beyond the sky, beyond where you lie — that is where Heaven exists, and, yet, at the same time, Heaven lies within you. You are your own telescope. You are your own astronomer. You are the Vastness that seems to be held out away from your very reach, and, yet, it is within you and within your reach.
In whatever research you do, you are seeking more awareness of yourself. You may look through a microscope, yet what you are seeking is the Greatness Within You. This Greatness is a constant, and yet it seems elusive. This that you seek, that all seek whether aware of it or not, is your Self, the Self that exists beyond the details of existence, that lies beyond the fray. It is the One True Self that you seek, and you call that Truth by My Name. By whatever name I am known, I AM, and I AM within you. I am the Precursor of you. I am your Identity. Your Identity is not this short-ranged perception you live with day by day.
The truth is that you live with Me, and I live with you. You live in Me, and I live in you. So, who are you then? Frankly, you have not been at all that you thought you were. You have been squeezed into shoes way too small for you. You have been seemingly squeezed into shoes when the truth is that the heart of you is vast and unbounded. There is no way you fit into the perceived measurements of life.
Earth life is yours, and it is yours for a purpose. Your purpose is not to make boundaries nor are you to fit into boundaries. You are meant to exceed boundaries. There is no way that you cannot exceed the delineations purported on Earth.
I laugh. I laugh in the same way I laugh at how the world at large delineates the Earth I made and divides it into sections called nations. I did not give you nations with borders! I gave you different climates and growing things and mountains and valleys, and I gave you everything in common to give and not to be withheld.
I am not possessive, beloveds, yet I claim the Earth for My Own, and I offer it to all. What games are played on Earth that bear no significance to Reality. You refer to the game of life in the world as reality, yet you play a game of Let’s Pretend. Let’s Pretend covers a vast area, yet Let’s Pretend is not Vastness. It is appropriation of what is not to be appropriated. It is appropriation of that which is beyond appropriation. It is appropriation of what is inappropriate.
If the world is to be ruled, let it be ruled by love, and then it will be freed from constriction and freed of painted borders on Earth and freed from fragmented outlines of My Beloved YOU when in Truth, you are far beyond boundaries whether within or without.
