“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.” Eckhart Tolle (from The Power of Now)
This is another way of expressing the idea of Atonement. When Jesus says, I and the Father are One, he is saying that I and the Source are One, or I and Life are One…atonement. This is a realization on the Hero’s Journey.
We are all in our personal journeys seeing atonement with the father or mother, coming to some resolution of the polarity. Maturity is when the son becomes a father, or a daughter becomes a mother. Spiritual maturity is when you become Life, when there is no more rub between you and the world, which is your life.
J. Krishnamurtiy always said : You are the world and the world is you. That is atonement. Avatar was about atonement.
