This Week’s Quotation:
You will be called to be more and more and more yourself, and more and more aware of what the reality of Being really is, and how it transcends your immediate human life. In fact, it transcends your whole human life and the entire creative field in which you are working as a human being. All that is being held in a far larger field, of which you are a part. You can sense that and know it and know the larger stature of your own Being, and know that in your immediate creative field there is a grand potential that is born out of the higher field.Becoming a Sun p. 212
A Vast Creative Field
Hmm. A grand field of Being that is vast in scope, extending to an order of reality that is higher than the world in which we live right now.
A pipe dream?
Today, as I write these words, my home, Sunrise Ranch, is within six miles of the Cameron Peak Forest Fire. Smoke is in the valley, and there is a post-apocalyptic light shining through the trees. We are prepared to evacuate, if necessary, with a moment’s notice.
At times like this, the world can seem to shrink down around you. Vast fields of Being can seem like a pipe dream.
But for the past few days, prayers of love and protection have been pouring in from all over the globe. The field within which this fire is burning just grew to global proportions. And I can tell you it is different to face a forest fire when you have friends around the world by the hundreds aware of you and surrounding you with their loving hearts.
I have not heard from some of these friends for decades. For some, the last thing I heard from them wasn’t kind.
Some are childhood friends. Some I met on world travels. Today it does not matter. We know each other on a level that transcends anything that has been said or done.
There is a field of reality at a higher and vaster scale than our usual orientation in the proximate world surrounding us.
The biosphere of Planet Earth extends to only about 15 miles past the surface of the earth. Does the field in which we live end there? Of course not. This solar system is our home. It is the vital context in which we live, even at the level of material matter and energy. But do we really believe it is devoid of Being? And does the field in which live end there?
If it must be imagination, imagine this. Leaving behind any personal forest fires in your life for a moment right now, imagine a vast host of cosmic angels. They all have much to do, and they are not always thinking of you. But they have your back. They see you. They are sending you love. Your job is simply to receive it. And then take all that heavenly support, and use it to be you as truthfully as you know how to be right now.
Welcome to the vast creative field in which you live.
What does it mean to become a sun?
Every human being is already a sun on the inside—a being of intense love and light. The difference is that some people have the vision and courage to become a sun on the outside. This difference is our human destiny.
