"Power of Now", "A New Earth", Living in the Present
It is strange the things you pick up on as you need them.
While reading chapter 5 section "relizing pure consciousness" he speaks of forms not being that important. so from what i gathered from it as our forms are not important just the consciousness so our forms dying we should really not get attached to because we go on.
my thought processes here, so i see it kind of like when we were little and playing with barbies, the barbies (a form) themselves are insignificant only the consciousness moving them (us, consciousness) then as we grow (evolve)
we forget about the barbies and start playing with fashion or what ever (just another form)
so really our bodies are merely barbies and fashion and as we evolve we shed one for another, just a means to a end.
the only meaning then on the forms are the ones we place on them and nothing more.
this comes at a time when i am thinking of my brother (who has decided not to try any more methods to fight the cancer, I tried) so really i am not losing him. he will still be. just the form i know of him will be gone. but he will continue on to whatever it is that takes him on his journey thru evolution.
that is comforting to me.
what did you get from this part?
