the All is Being All – venice class – Apr 30, 2015 th

Erich: So, we have been talking about a lot of things. It all revolves around a couple fundamental ideas. The discussion spins off and comes back, spins off and comes back. We're talking about the same thing a lot because we are on this nubbin of a fundamental insight.

The fundamental insight is that The All is all. The One is The Many. That is a quick, easy way to get it. The All is all.

I am not "doing" me. You are not "doing" you. You only exist because The All is appearing as you. Therefore, you are The All in specific Self-Expression. You are The All. You are God, is the word for The All...

Your Mind is Connected – venice class – Apr 28, 2015 tu

Erich: The thing I want to emphasize today is ... Remember, it's always about the same thing. It's about realizing you are Online.

In easy words: YOU ARE ONLINE.

Your mind is connected to the Internet of Infinite Mind. I've said this a lot. I know I've said this a lot. But, remember, it's not that you are "connected" — though, sure, talk about it as though you are connected. You are not "connected," though you are connected. But, really, there is not enough of you — all by yourself — that you could connect with anything. There's just The All being all...

Erich: Yoga is the inquiry into truth. Be able to say that on the test. "Yoga is the inquiry into truth."

Say the sentence, "What is the truth here, really?" as many times in a day as you can stand to do it, with whoever is in your experience, with whatever is in your experience...

Awakened Ones – venice class – Apr 21, 2015 tu

Erich: It's funny. I'm trying not to be repetitive, and yet I know this is not repetitive. I know this is still the thing I'm learning about. And I know I've said it 10 million times. And I know I know it. I can write a report about it. I can talk about it. But, still, the important thing is doing it! Living it...

Namasté – venice class – Apr 14, 2015 tu

Erich: I was always taught that the word Namaste means, "I bow to you." Or, "The God in me sees the God in you." Or, "The Light in me sees the Light in you," something like that. These all have the same fundamental meaning. But, the specific definition that I have always liked is, "The light of my awareness sees the light of your presence."

Awareness does seem like a light. Like, right now, you are aware, and wherever you put your attention is like you are shining your flashlight — the flashlight of your awareness — on whatever you happen to focus on.

And so, namaste is, "The light of my awareness sees the light of your presence." I would vote, memorize that definition. And from now until a week from now, say it to yourself a lot. Let it remind you to do the exercise of actually looking to see the light of somebody else's presence, the light of any presence!
