open mind

You must look into the face of vulnerability to find joy. You cannot find a joy unless you accept vulnerability. Even the gods know vulnerability—and that is why they live. And because I have known vulnerability, I am still alive.

I give you then all the peace and joy that you can hold. But you cannot hold peace and joy like a stone in your hand. For it goes through you and out into others. You need know—you need know nothing—you need know nothing in intellectual terms…

And so peace and joy be with you in all days.

Now I bless you, but the blessings must come from yourselves. The real blessings must come from yourselves.

You must realize that you are one with All That Is, and within you is the only one who can give blessings, and you must be willing to accept the blessing that only you can give, and the joy that only you can give to yourselves and to one another.

There should never be a word in any language that means repentance.

There should only be a word that means, “I bless,” for when you bless you do not need to repent. And when you accept a blessing, you do not need to repent. For when you realize how to accept a blessing, there is nothing to repent.

Love of All That Is requires simply that you become open as air, for when you are open as air then the joy of All That Is flows through you indiscriminately, and there is nothing to repent. You only need repentance when you do not know joy.

For within joy and within All That Is there is only glory that is only consciousness and song.

There is only blessedness.

When you berate yourself for your sins, then you do not realize what joy is.

And All That Is is consciousness and joy.

Do you berate a flower that has one crooked stem? So in your selves, know spontaneity. And in spontaneity you will find joy. Spontaneity has its own discipline. You do not need to enforce discipline upon it. You need not enforce discipline upon it.

Pretend that the bony tissue of your skulls does not exist. And let the energy of All That Is flow through you as indiscriminately as clouds through the skies. Do not say, “I will accept this and I will deny this.” The knowledge that is within yourselves knows. You do not have to fear the spontaneous.

You do not need to fear that if you allow yourselves freedom you will travel into evil ways. Conscious restraints can lead you into avenues of denial.

But the inner selves, knowing their position within All That Is, do not fear denial.

What appears to you as evil is a result of your own ignorance.

There is purpose in all things.

In your spontaneity then, never forget the sacred uniqueness of a shadow upon a road, the shape of a leaf, the stain upon a coffee cup—in these simple things find a hint of your own uniqueness and travel beyond them—and ignore conscious restraint that would bind you. Let the inner intuitive sense speak for it is the inner voice, and the magic that unites you has no need of conscious words…
