Saturday with ET: “If you are content with being nobody in particular, content not to stand out, you align yourself with the power of the universe. What looks like weakness to the ego is in fact the only true strength. This spiritual truth is diametrically opposed to the values of our contemporary culture and the way it conditions people to behave.” Eckart Tolle from The Power of Now
Happy Saturday…..THis is about the Lord’s Prayer: Thy will be done on each as it is in heaven. In order for Thy Will to be done, which is not some external law imposed on reality, but the Will of Reality or the needs of this moment. The moment as needs. You wife has needs. Your children have needs. Your neighbor has needs…the world has needs. That is the Will of God. The Will on Earth is my personal will, the ego needs for my satisfaction and maintenance as something special.
Heaven is a metaphor for it is not a space in time and space. That is the earth. So Heaven is a metaphor for the Transcendent, which is the needs of the conditions I’m presently in—which, BTW, is all that exists. I can’t be anyplace but right Now. What are the needs of now?
Well, I can’t know unless I make this prayer: Thy Will be done…Let the Now be done on earth, which is my will. The Now is transcendent to me as long as I need to be special, a somebody, then it’s MY Will be done, and to hell with the Needs of Now….or God. You see how simple this prayer is? We assume God si someplace else in a place called Heaven….but no. God is Now and earth is heaven…when we fulfill this prayer.
