What Would I Give To The World
Gratitude is the recognition that you have what you desire
or something that you wanted. I am grateful for my job (because I have one). I
am grateful for my mate (because I have one). I am grateful for relationships
(because I have them). I am grateful because they are working for me (because
they express physically what or who I am). I am grateful for these things
(because they are not working for me) and they are pointing me in a different
All things are physical expressions of your own current thoughts about whom and
what you are in relationship to everything else. However, they are empty things
unless you attach meaning to them. The real truth about them is that you have
none of them, you are simply experiencing them. Things can't make you happy for
instance. You create things because they are an expression of your current
thoughts. You cannot be happy, you can only experience it and the "things" in
you life are mirrors which reflect back to your experience of "happiness".
To say that someone made you angry is incorrect. At some level you thought about
anger first and then you created the experience of anger through a relationship
with another aspect of yourself; the other one! You are always experiencing your
thoughts as physical manifestations. And you are doing it alone. No one else
exists but you. You are always interacting with yourself. You cannot do for
another or unto another, because there is no other. You can never give or do a
thing selflessly because you always do it for, and to yourself.
When you give to another or take from another; you are giving or taking from
yourself. The only reason this is working is because you believe otherwise; you
have forgotten who and what you truly are. You are the creator, and you are
creating within your own awareness of the things you imagine within yourself.
Living is a verb; it is what you are experiencing. You are life experiencing;
you are not a thing - doing. You are always experiencing this or that even if it
When you are victimizing you are also having the experience of being a victim.
Neither one of these actions can occur unless you choose to experience them both
at the same time.
In order to clap your hands together; your one hand has to agree to be move to
the other, they are both doing it in an experience that has already been
imagined in the future by the mind and now experienced in the past. Doing is
both imagined and experienced by the same mind. Neither hand will experience
clapping; it is the mind that experiences the result of what it has created or
If you are the one mind that experiences all things as this or that; then what
is the only thing that "I" (as everything that is) can give to a world which
seems to be working autonomously and separate from the mind that created it?
What would I give to myself that would make the whole experience complete (and
for that matter-tolerable)? How can I experience the hands clapping together and
experience being the hands at the same time? To see the bigger picture rather
than knowing myself as a left or right hand; I would have to take responsibility
for the action knowing that it has purpose and was created by myself for my
purpose only. I am the hands and the mind; I am the creator and the
co-creators-experiencing the experience of experiencing. To know clapping is not
experiencing it. To be the objects which create clapping (hands) leaves you in
another imagined state of victimhood or victimizing with little sense of the
overall experience or responsibility. An awareness of the whole picture brings
purpose and fulfillment to the experience.
All human experiences are only part of a greater picture (experience) that we
are mostly unaware of, and it is by choice. It is the lack of awareness of our
role in all experiences which gives us the illusion of separation from the
thought manifested. Life's experiences will go on forever and never be fully
experienced until the illusion is revealed and all things are known as one
experience or the experience of one.
New Age for the most part does not move past the next existence, but does
suggest there are other realms. In my experience New Age does not go past these
experiences. As a New Age Spiritual writer, I share the knowledge of other such
writers; that there is more to us than our physical bodies and what we have been
taught in this world. Our truth is the truth that we make up as we go along.
Religion is a step in our evolution or awareness, but it only has the meaning
that we give it. It is not our truth unless we make it so and it is not a
gateway to anywhere-it is a step in awareness.
After all these experiences, we come to the same place of awareness. We are
nothing; we experience everything we think about. We cannot ever be anything,
because we are always in a process of being something and then nothing. Where
you think you are going is where you already are. You are creator, creating.
None of your experiences are necessary except in your own mind. You have always
been and always will "be". The essence of who you are will always exist and you
cannot die; it is your body that dies.
The benefit of this knowledge in your physical lifetime empowers you to take
responsibility for self. To know that you have absolute freedom to choose
anything that you wish to experience; it opens your eyes to the beauty and
ugliness of physical life; to good and bad, right and wrong, what works and
doesn't work. Within your awareness of self, all things are perfect. All things
are beautiful and appropriate for the time and place they occur. All things
occur and are experienced from this place of knowingness as desirable.
The gift that I would give to you would be the awareness. The awareness that you
are perfect the way you are, no matter how you see yourself. The awareness that
you can change your circumstances at will and that you will continue to
experience and will always exist. I would give you the awareness that you do not
have to continue in this life or this lifetime. The awareness of your current
life is only a step that you chosen at some level of your existence. I would
emphasize that religion is simply a lifestyle that you have chosen while you are
here. You do not have to be religious or anything else to live a successful
life. Just "being" is enough.
Death is not an ending, but a new beginning and it comes when you decide-it
cannot be forced upon you. Love is not the answer; it is all there is. Your
final end will be experienced when you know that you are already there; there is
no place to go. You are and will always be life! Life is continuous; you are
consciousness in motion. All that you have known will always be known; including
all relationships. Life is an experience; it is neither a beginning nor an end.
Live well and prosper in the moment-it is the only thing that is real!
