Sunday with ET: “There is no such thing as “my life,” and I don’t have a life. I AM life. I and life are one. It cannot be otherwise. So how could I lose my life? How could I lose something that I don’t have in the first place: How could I lose something that I Am? It is impossible.” E. Tolle from A New Earth
Good morning….The view that I have a life and that I can lose it is a view from outside life. You can’t see life as a something unless you are outside of it. I can’t see a pencil unless I am a subject and the pencil is an object. If I were the pencil (maybe I took LSD) then I would not see a separate pencil as different from me. There would be no boundaries, yet there would still be Seeing. Life, the pencil and me, would be Seeing. So I would still be here, only without a boundary separating me from life as objects. I would be the Center without a second, without an object outside of me. Yet, I would still not be the pencil.
Now, when I stop looking at the pencil as an object and pick it up to write, I am the pencil and the pencil is me. We are one in the writing.
When I stop looking at Life as external to me and I just start living as the moment, I and life are One, and there is no life to lose.
