Consciousness Wakens to Itself
Now I will tell you that generosity comes about, not from selflessness, but from natural awareness, from consciousness that awakens to itself.
For many in the land of Earth, there is a line between you and another. It may be a fine line, but a line. You wouldn't be the first person who has thought: "I really want this for myself." What it is, you may give it, perhaps the last piece of cake, perhaps, yet it was a decision you made based on your perception. You wanted to be generous. You likely saw very well that the one you gave to is apart from you rather than a part of you. And yet you gave a generous gift with the awareness that that was what you were doing
The person who is at the consciousness I am trying to describe -- this consciousness does exist - the person who is in this consciousness does not have that fine line between himself and another. If he thinks at all, he is probably thinking: "What gives me the most joy here?" And so he bends over backwards for himself who appears to be in the form of another, yet this consciousness knows without thought that there is One. He knows the One is I, and he knows that he is I, and so he gives to his own Self who happens to be in the shape of another.
This consciousness sits on a high mountain. Or stands on a high mountain or swims at the depth of the Ocean.
At the top of the mountain, there is no taking. There is only giving. This consciousness gives always to himself. He is always thinking of himself. He sees the other as himself. He does not erase himself. He lives on Earth yet not quite the same Earth that many still live on. The top of a mountain does not concern himself with erosion and so forth. He gives his snow, the streams of water. They roll off his back. He would not withhold, for he would not withhold from himself. The top of the mountain knows that the foot of the mountain is also part of himself. He also knows that which extends to the furthermost hills is also himself. There is nothing that is not himself, so what is there not to give? He has everything.
And if that consciousness swims at the depth of the Ocean, he is the Ocean who shares itself. All the little fishies swim together. They swim through the Ocean that so generously offers itself. The Ocean does not think: "This fishie is allowable. I will give him My Sea." The Ocean does not think: "Oh, this one, this little fishie, nope, he is not Mine. He does not belong here. I do not welcome him."
This consciousness on Earth lives in the world, and yet it lives in a different world from what you know. Once this consciousness was a lesser consciousness, and now he has arisen. And so shall you rise.
You shall rise to this consciousness in which everyone is your blessed self. You too shall rise to this consciousness where everyone is generous unto each other, for in this consciousness, there is no other to be generous to, for when you look at all the supposed others, everyone you look at is yourself. This consciousness may be surprised that all of himselves do not see what he sees. What he sees is what he sees. What he knows, he knows. Where he is, he is. He needs no back-up. He is generosity incarnate. He is generous without knowing he is and is surprised when someone else sees him as a wonder.
