    Thanks, Fred. A good reminder that it does take work (at least for me). I’ve envisioned this past year as traveling through a dark forest; I’ve been oppressed by waves of fear and often despair. But I knew that the only way through was to seek the truth. I was guided by a few principals – face the feelings, seek guidance from sage friends and teachers, pray (a lot), meditate, and study non-duality. I sometimes felt I was getting nowhere, or even spiraling downward. But now I’m experiencing more and more clarity. The light, the bliss and love are all right here!

    But until you see it, you have to search. Perhaps a better way to phrase it, to avoid the paradox of the seeker seeking itself, is to say that it takes work, or willingness as you say. When you do in fact awaken, it will be in the here and now, so we don’t need to worry that we’re setting it off to the future, as long as we are doing the work now. And when we do awaken, we realize that we always were awake, and all that work was actually kind of fun!

    And after awakening, the work continues. In fact, I’ve heard that initial awakening experiences are really only just the beginning of the adventure.

      This is fantastic! I’m thinking about writing a short post about our meeting this morning. It was truly fabulous! This note tells me you’re still clear as a bell. I wrote Betsy immediately after our meeting, still aglow from your glow. She’s also very happy for you, for both of you.

      Free at last, free at last, thank God Almighty, we are free at last!!” Welcome home, Kathleen.

      All love,
      Fred

    Thanks, Fred! I’m still so happy! It feels so good to know that there is never a moment presented to me (or to anyone) where I can’t be fully awake. And fully aware that I’m fully awake.

    Thank you so much for guiding me to freedom. And thank Betsy for me, too. Our partners (and all the people, animals, objects, etc. in our lives) are essential to who we are, our inspiration, and what we give to the universe.

    Love and peace and clarity to you, Betsy, your animals, family, friends, objects, all beings sentient and insentient, and to beautiful Oneness,

    Kathleen

    Finding a way to use the paradox has been helpful to me. And the main phrasing I use currently is from ACIM: lack of consistent effort comes from the belief that one (and others) are not worthy of it. So the “work” I now do I can realize is to undo the work that actually kept me worhtless (ie not doing anything is actually resistance to my Good and therefore work). Also, faith in the moment is essential (and “no choice” because I don’t have the energy any more to be seeking anywhere – or when- else anymore!). That faith also ties in with the paradoxical “I need do nothing”. Because I need do nothing that is actually worry (future tripping) or depression (past tripping). I can turn Nowhere into Now Here!.

    Gladly joining Fredness’es ranks until I experience my One without ranks! Mike

      Dunno if you’ll see this, Mike, but ACIM was/is/has been helpful to me in the ‘doing/undoing’ of the Journey.
