What to do after realization?

Once you return to the One, it is realized that there was no 'you' in the first place. So 'you' are the One. And what does the One do? It expands into creation. So you want to go back to the One, but the One wants to expand into creation. Hence you expand into creation as the messenger of the One. What else is there to do?

You become the outward expression of the One. Because that is what the One expresses. Creation and expansion is the fragrance of the One and you become the outward expression. No more hiding in caves or solitary retreats, but full on involvement with creation, in service of the One. This is not for the weak.

Follow your heart, always!

Awakening others - excerpt

You are not yet awake, but you can learn HOW to awaken. Very simply the Holy
Spirit teaches you to awaken others. As you see them waken, you will learn WHAT
WAKING MEANS. And because you have willed to wake them, their gratitude, and their
appreciation of what you have given them, will TEACH YOU ITS VALUE. THEY will
become the witnesses to your reality, as YOU were created witnesses to God’s.

~ACIM (excerpt)

Law of One

I am Ra. The Law of One, though beyond the limitations of name, as you call vibratory sound complexes, may be approximated by stating that all things are one, that there is no polarity, no right or wrong, no disharmony, but only identity. All is one, and that one is love/light, light/love, the Infinite Creator.

One of the primal distortions of the Law of One is that of healing. Healing occurs when a mind/body/spirit complex realizes, deep within itself, the Law of One; that is, that there is no disharmony, no imperfection; that all is complete and whole and perfect. Thus, the intelligent infinity within this mind/body/spirit complex re-forms the illusion of body, mind, or spirit to a form congruent with the Law of One. The healer acts as energizer or catalyst for this completely individual process.

Overcoming misery and liberation

What is the one thing that needs to be known/understood so that sufferings and miseries are minimized? Especially psychological suffering.

What is the root of misery? What understanding can end all misery?

In many ways, we cannot fully control our life situation. So, what must be known so that we are less affected by the vicissitudes of life?

Sincere inquiry is all that is needed. Inquiry which is sincere and relentless. To become aware of all the little ways in which we cause our own psychological suffering.

The final question

Ultimately, all philosophy boils down to one question alone.

What is it that transcends death?

To realize the answer to this question is to become immortal.

Evolution

When you are living at the level of instinct, driven purely by evolutionary drives, your major concern in life is survival. And since reproduction is nothing but the survival drive for the species, it follows that when the survival drive is high, so is the reproduction drive. This is one of the reasons the poor  and impoverished, whose lives are dictated primarily by survival seem to have so many offspring. It is because the drive to survive and the drive to reproduce are aspects of the same evolutionary drive.

Our greatest blessing as human beings is that we have the ability or the free will to control the evolutionary drives and not be controlled by them. Or put simply, we can choose to reject the evolutionary drives. Self control is nothing but keeping the evolutionary drives in check. This allows us to plan for the future, and identify our self as something other than the purely physical. Self control also allows us the ability to step away from our drives and reflect on our true condition. This reflection soon develops into a feedback loop allowing further reflection and has been one of the major reasons for the success of the human race. In fact this ability has provided us with a most important skill in terms of long term planning, through delayed gratification.

Wisdom and surrender

Suffering and depression often results from a sense of isolation that you feel from the world around you. You feel trapped within a limited body and your limited thoughts/fears/anxieties. The essence of overcoming the feeling of isolation is to remember that you are part of a much larger whole. You are part of a Life that is much larger than you and your limited sense of identity. Often, the cure for your anxieties and depression is simply in surrendering to that which is larger than you and stop creating additional walls of isolation Let the larger part of life enter you. Let your higher self enter your mind. Let your identity expand.
