“From the soul using the body as an instrument, it does not follow that the Soul must share the body’s experience: a man does not himself feel all the experiences of the tools with which he is working.” Plotinus  204-270 AD

     I am not my body!  You are not your body!  We are all of us Spirit.  Spirit is not physical, nor can there be “physical”, for we live and breathe and have our being within the mind of God.  There is no place, no power, but the infinite mind of God.  We are the unchanging forever beings observing this physical illusion for a purpose as yet unknown.  We are like a person coming into the theater at the middle of the show; we do not truly know the beginning.  Nor do we know the end of the story! 

     We must learn as Jesus taught; to be in the “world” but not of it.  This is the conundrum.  As in any game we want to give 100% and yet not lose our way nor forget who we are.  As young adults leaving home we are told to remember who we are as we face the temptations of the world.  We are reminded to choose wisely our friends and our pathways.  As spirit we must also guide our creations to be the expression of our true being.  It is said we are many and yet we are one!  The one is just that ONE.  Spirit cannot be broken into a million pieces for that would mean more than one.  Spirit cannot be contained in time or space for that would deny the everywhere present mind of God within which we live and have our being.  We cannot be lost as we have never, except in our mind, left our heavenly home. 

     Our breath is the incoming and sustaining and maintaining of the physical illusion we call life.  We breathe life into our creation and it appears real.  When we no longer breathe into our creations they no longer exist.  

As spirit observing our creations, we cannot in truth be injured or harmed.  “WE” are still conscious after so called death; so obviously “we” were not harmed. 

     One of the agreements of this vibration is that we cannot hold onto anything…..not even our breath.  Every event that occurs is energy and must continue to move.  When we hold onto, or attach ourselves to any incident of our creation, it becomes stuck.  Stuck energy, good or not so good, blocks the channels of our creations yet to come.  We have prepared a dazzling array of events to challenge and to enchant us.  And because it is a mind game; no one can be hurt.  For this reason there is no condemnation in heaven and at the final curtain we can all laugh and get ready for the next act. 

     What we can do from our point of observation is remember who and what we are, and then embrace this glorious mystery and enjoy our creation; knowing all the while that it is a creation of mind.

One means one!  There is no other.  Spirit cannot be divided.  Nor can spirit be contained within time, or space, or within any belief.  We are familiar with the Einstein quote telling us that separation is a delusion of consciousness.  In Genesis chapter 3 we learn that others before us have accepted this delusion; this duality of good and evil.  


We are not stuck in this belief!  Within our being is all that we need to navigate this plane of existence.  Duality is joyful!  Duality is fun!  The joy of knowing oneself as reflected all about us in nature and in the faces of humanity is an adventure we would not want to miss.  Eating the apple is just a metaphor for accepting the journey.  Yet we know that duality is not who we are.  To accept duality as who we are is no more real than to accept the image of our faces in the mirror as real.  That image is not real!  It is only the mask we are wearing in the game of life.  A life we agreed to “live”.  


That reflection cannot hurt us, nor can it be hurt.  It is just a reflection.  Can we have any impact on a reflection in a mirror?  And so everywhere we look we are observing our creations; our storyline… good and not so good.  We can choose to experience the feelings of being hurt, wounded, or dying; yet the immortal WE or I is not touched.  ‘I AM” does not say I will be or I was or I might be.  It says I AM!  


We are the many masks of God.  Behind all these reflections is the immutable, unchanging spirit we call The All That Is.  The great I AM can frolic in duality.  Enjoy magical creations, and not so magical creations.  Sometimes when out of body, or dreaming, we experience an expanded sense of self.  One day that expansion will by nature grow to include all that is.  We will then realize that we are all existences and in that realization we will experience compassion for all.  Once that happens we will perhaps experience self as a dot; a dot that is aware of everything and then…………. 

                                                                                                                       Namaste! Happy New Year! Emmy Chetkin
