Understanding #6- There is no separate ‘me’
There is no separate ‘me’
There is only God ““ God being ‘me’, God being ‘you’.
(If you don’t like the word “God” replace it with Immortal Life, Infinite
Love, Spirit, Divine Presence, the Eternal Light, All That Is, The ‘I Am’ or
one of the Eternal Light, All That Is, The ‘I Am’ or one of the thousand
other terms used for attempting to express the inexpressible).
Acknowledging such a truth even intellectually can be very difficult ““ many
of us struggle to overcome pre-programming that says we’re just sinners and
to think otherwise we’re told is the height of ego-ism.
But this nonsense is flawed: being better than another is ego-ism ““ being
God-in-flow (the same as everyone and everything else) is actually real-ism.

And that relationship is so personal that, for me, it means my relationship
Now what does that mean?
If there is no separate ‘me’ it means my relationship to you…and you…and
you. So who/what do I mean when I say “my”?
The more I explore ““ experientially ““ God-as-Les, the more I will understand
who/what I AM and who/what I am not.
Only through experience will the truth be revealed to me.
Only through awareness and focus will I remember to seek experience.
And only through mental acceptance will I be able to anchor my focus in
Hence, the immense value of regular meditation, contemplation, affirmation
and group association.
These spiritual tools help us to strengthen our resolve to shuck off all

Try this exercise for one week: Consciously treat everyone as if they were
an equal but separate aspect of the God-head, desiring ““ deep within ““
(maybe in spite of their perceived behaviour) to find and express their
Do it as if you were precisely the same.
Do it for the next week and experience un-mistakable truth and love.
Love and blessings.
