So how can I get to this place of gknowing that I knowh something if I donft gknow that I knowh?

• umĂ邱Ƃm邽߂ɂ͒mĂ邩̂悤ɍsvƂB
To gknow that you know, act as if you do.h

• {󂪂܂B
You mentioned something about that in Book 1 also.

• ŁA܂܂ł̋炢悤B
Yes. A good place to start here would be to recap whatfs gone before in the previous teaching.

And you gjust happenh to be asking the right questions, allowing Me to summarize in short form at the beginning of this book the information we discussed in prior material in some detail.

Now in Book 1, we talked about the Be-Do-Have paradigm, and how most people have it reversed.

Most people believe if they ghaveh a thing (more time, money, love?whatever), then they can finally gdoha thing (write a book, take up a hobby, go on vaca-tion, by a home, undertake a relationship), which will allow them to gbeh a thing (happy, peaceful, content, or in love).

• Ƃ낪Aނ͑݁[sׁ[LƂp_Ct]ĂB͉Fł́uLvu݁vɂ͂ȂȂBtȂ̂B
In actuality, they are reversing the Be-Do-Have paradigm. In the universe as it really is (as opposed to how you think it is), ghavingnessh
does not produce gbeingness,h but the other way around.

• ܂AuKvi邢́umĂvuvuDvjƂԂɂȂȂB̏ԂAusׁvn߂B΁A܂Ȃ

First you gbeh the thing called ghappyh (or gknowing,h or gwise,h or gcompassionate,h or whatever); then you start gdoingh things from
this place of beingness? and soon you discover that what you are doing winds up bringing you the things youfve always wanted to ghave.h

• ̑nIvZXnɂ́i͂܂ɑñvZXȂ̂jA@uLv̂߁AꂪuĂv͂ǂuȂv낤ƍlÂƂɂȂȂB
The way to set this creative process (and thatfs what this is. . . the process of creation) into motion is to look at what it is you want to ghave,h ask yourself what you think you would gbeh if you ghadh that, then go right straight to being.

• ΁A܂܂ł̑݁[sׁ[LƂp_Ct]Bp_C𐳂gāAF̑nIȗ͂𓭂邱ƂłB
In this way you reverse the way youfve been using the Be-Do-Have paradigm?in actuality,set it right?and work with, rather than against,
the creative power of the universe.

Here is a short way of stating this principle:@ In life, you do not have to do anything.

• ́Ał邩ƂƂB
It is all a question of what you are being.

This is one of the three messages I will touch on again at the end of our dialogue.

Thought control is the highest form of prayer.There fore, think only on good things, and righteous.

And even in moments when things look bleak\especially in those moments\see only perfection, express only gratefulness, and then imagine only what manifestation of perfection you choose next.

In this formula is found tranquillity. In this process is found peace. In this awareness is found joy.

Q.  ʑOɂ́AǂĎvlƑn̂ɂꂪłBāAゾƂꂪȂ̂́AǂĂȂłH
Why is there such a delay between thought and creation before we die, and no delay at all after we die?
A.  ԂƂẑȂœĂ邩炾Bĝ𗣂ƁAvlƑn̂ɂꂪȂȂ̂́AԂƂp[^[

Because you are working within the illusion of time. There is no delay between thought and creation away from the body, because you are also away from the parameter of time.

Q.  ƁAxႽ悤ɁAԂƂ݂̂͑ȂĂƂłˁB
In other words, as You have said so often, time does not exist.
A.  ȂĂ悤ȎԂ݂͑ȂBuԁvƂۂ́A_̖Ȃ̂B׋m[g  Q
Not as you understand it. The phenomenon of gtimeh is really a function of perspective.

You have caused it to by moving into, by assuming, your present perspective. You use this perspective as a tool with which you can explore and examine your experiences much more fully, by separating them into individual pieces, rather than a single occurrence.Life is a single occurrence, an event in the cosmos that is happening right now. All of it is happening. Everywhere.There is no gtimeh but now. There is no gplaceh but here.Here and now is All There Is.

Yet you chose to experience the magnificence of here and now in its every detail, and to experience your Divine Self as the here and now creator of that reality. There were only two ways\two fields of experience\in which you could do that. Time and space.So magnificent was this thought that you literally exploded with delight! In that explosion of delight was created space between the parts of you, and the time it took to move from one part of yourself to another.

In your present life you find it difficult to create con-sciously from your individual awareness, and, indeed, often assume your individual understandings to be wrong, given all that you are seeing around you, and so, you surrender to the collective consciousness, whether it serves you to do so or not.

In the first moments of what you call the afterlife, on the other hand, you may find it difficult to surrender to the collective consciousness, given all that you are seeing around you (which may be unbelievable to you), and so you will be tempted to hold to your own individual understandings, whether they serve you or not.

I would tell you this: It is when you are surrounded by lower consciousness that you will benefit more from remaining with yourindividual understandings, and when you are surrounded by higher consciousness that you receive greater benefit from surrender.

It may, therefore, be wise to seek beings of high con-sciousness.

It is all a matter of desire, of your choosing, of your creating, and, ultimately, of your creating the uncreateable; that is, of your experiencing that which has already been created.

It is the alpha and the omega, the before and the after, the now-then-always aspect of everything, which you call God.

All of life is motion. Even rocks are filled with motion. Everything moves. Everything.

There is nothing that is not in motion. Therefore, by the very fact of motion, nothing is the same from one moment to the next. Nothing.
