In this response to a question, Joy points to the indescribable. The wonder of being. She talks about the ‘me’ which isn’t separate from that wonder and yet appears to mask it in its quest to employ the strategies mind uses to avoid all that comes with the illusion of separation and the sense of contraction.
If there is a contracted separate self, all that can be done in the appearing story is to make the life which appears to belong to someone more apparently pleasing. Essence allows the separate self to dissolve its limitations to a very large degree. Life becomes smoother, more easeful. Right direction arises effortlessly. This can be massively life enhancing for the ‘one’ who appeared to be stuck in a mire of suffering and is drawn to take action to address that. The journey of awakening is revealed through essence to be a dismantling and a letting go – by no-one, not a building up. And it can appear to be helpful for the mind and personality to be primed, ready for awakeness.
Freedom, wholeness, cannot be ‘got’ or ‘owned’. Nothing can ever be done to ‘achieve’ it. The Most Intimate message can apparently dissolve the trying. ‘Me’ dissolves because it isn’t real. Glimpses may occur – but not because ‘anyone’ ever did anything. The transmission is strong and unfettered.
Freedom is the life that infuses all forms and is not changed at all when any or all forms are gone.
