Being is known through sharing. (A Course in Miracles)
Born into this world from the eternal void of nothingness, you arrive as perfect love and joy. Your fundamental needs within are already met because this is what you are.
The source of your being (your “I am-ness”) is within, but the purpose of this dream of life is to extend yourself to make your being known. Doing is knowing and knowing requires sharing.
It is the ego that would hide in separation—believing that a heart can be broken, that safety can be threatened, that truth can be attacked, and that something real can be taken away. But remember, the ego’s mantra is “seek but do not find.” Nothing can be known through separation but stagnation, suffering and confusion.
Spirit knows that it is invulnerable. Therefore, there is no risk in sharing, giving, loving all. Spirit does not see attack as real, is not afraid of what might happen, and cares nothing of the judgment of egos.
Our choice is always love or fear—at all times, in all situations, with everyone. Fear withdraws, while love extends. It is impossible to serve two masters. If anything is holding you back from freely sharing love, you are continuing to serve ego—the source of suffering in this world.
Now we escape the ego, set spirit free in all dimensions of life, and experience the joy of sharing and knowing.
