One Voice in Many: Part 11



I've been posting bits of an old manuscript I wrote in the late 70s that I called One Voice in Many. It's interesting to see that in my attempts then to merge into the collective consciousness and speak from that unified voice, so much of what was said is so simple and true today. The Voice in me could easily be the Divine Voice inside anyone and everyone. Previous parts can be found on Jul 12, Aug 19, Aug 26, and Nov 4, 2010; Jan 15, Feb 9, Mar 30, May 17, Sep 17, and Oct 3, 2011.

THE INNER SPARK
It's all being directed by that inner guru, the divine spark that is me. What occurs as a thought, insight, flash, connection — these things are released into my consciousness like bubbles, out of the spark. They don't come from outside. If someone else speaks an idea, I am still releasing it to my mind by having attracted that person into my space, and by being able to hear it at that particular time. Everything I know now is what I need to work with, now. When I need new information or inspiration, it will be released into my mind at the right time. Nothing will be noticed until the appropriate moment. Premature exposure to knowledge can do no harm because nothing can be premature. Desires, too, are motivated from this inner spark. Seeds are planted from the inside and grow.

FOCUS
No one is against us. All spirit, the big unified self, is behind us in the process of growing ourselves. The mind has the important task of asking for more of the self or for what's new, then applying attention, and holding the focus until the experience materializes as revelation. You can't approach or reach an experience of self because it's not separate. It is always there and you, as your personality, are a subset of it, inside it. You can't describe it or visualize it or communicate it because to do so requires separation. You can't do it or not do it. You can only be it. When you let go, form disappears and consciousness remains. The tension of focus is what creates form. In order for you to exist in form, some greater consciousness, some greater experience of a greater self, maintains you in focus. Dissolve into the self. Remove focus. Surprise! The self creates you anew. If you don't interfere with this rocking, you expand. This is happening every instant, in and out like breath. The self breathes you in and out.
