Now I know what the ego is and have learned to ignore its insanity by not following its stream of thought.
Now I know that attack—even mild forms such as reward and punishment—only causes more suffering and teaches only more violence.
Now I know that there is nothing and no one to be possessed in this world. I let go and let all things be.
Now I know that giving and receiving is the same act.
Now I rest in the silence and stillness between all the stuff, all the events, all the noise.
Now I know that the thought system of love contains all knowing. All that is not love is error to be corrected through love.
Now I know that all the universe exists in this present moment—right where it has always been. Time is merely a way to measure the movement of matter and a practical way for humans to function.
Now I know that a stressful and fearful mind is what causes illness and disease.
Now I know that the great Tao, God, or whatever you want to call it, exists within the imperceptible spaciousness within us and throughout the universe.
Now I cannot know what is good or bad. There is a natural balance to things, there is a curriculum, and I need only respond to all of life with love.
Now I have awakened to experience heaven—the spacious dimension of peace that exists beyond human drama.
Now I am free. I will create no more pain and suffering. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.
