In your two longer practice periods, each of a 30-minute duration, sit quietly with your eyes closed, breathing deeply and regularly, attempting to feel the truth beyond the constant restlessness of your mind. Use your breath to take you deeper, for your breathing will always take you beyond your thoughts if you adhere yourself to it conscientiously. Let nothing distract or dissuade you. If something permeates your mind and you have difficulty releasing it, tell yourself that you will look at it a little later, but that right now you are taking a small vacation from your mind. Practice feeling the truth. Do not think the truth. Practice feeling the truth.
Practice 32: Two 30-minute practice periods.
It suddenly became clear to me – the whole “we are all one” thing. I accepted it before as a nice theory that I could believe and nod my head to, but I did not really understand it in the depths of my mind or being. And now, by jove, I think I've got it! Of course!
There is one universal spirit that is God, and it enters every new body that is born to have a human experience and multiply its knowledge. So the body is entirely secondary and it does not really matter what its physical appearance, talents, gifts, and attributes are, because the spirit is one. So we are not separate, we are the same spirit having different experiences in different bodies and thus gradually adding to our universal knowledge as part of the entire spirit that is called God. And we all return to that state of spirit after our physical body dies. This removes all need for envy, hatred, jealousy, unkindness or anything else negative relating to other people, because we all come from the same source and every experience is valuable. It is hard to put into words and perhaps I am not expressing it well, but I feel this is the truth that is shining into my mind today.
