聽神談【為何「你與神是平等的」?】

在一個「沒有一體或神性是可能的」的脈絡場之外,你無法經驗到你與神的一體。你必須在那脈絡內,或在我們這裡所說的「幻覺」內,以便能了解幻覺之外所存在的真理。
同樣的,「你與神,與每樣東西和每個人是平等的」是無法被體驗的,除非並且直到你能夠瞭解「不平等」。
 
聽神談【為何「你與神是平等的」?】
 
一個東西無法與它自己是「不平等」的。如果你拿出一樣東西,將之分割成幾個部分,部分與整體也是相等的。它們並不比整體差,只是因為它們被分割開了。
 
然而,不平等的幻覺讓每個部分「注意到它自己為它所是的部分」,而不是「視它自己為整體」。除非你視自己為分開的,否則你無法視自己為一體的一部分。你了解嗎?除非你想像自己與神是分開的,否則你無法將自己想像為神的一部分。
 
 
換句話說,除非你向後退一步來觀看我,否則你看不見我。然而,如果你認為你就是我的話,你便無法退後一步來觀看我。因此,為了要經驗我,你必須想像你不是我。
 
你們與神是平等的(You are equal to God),而這份「與神的平等」正是你們渴望經驗的事。你並不劣於神,或劣於任何的東西,然而在一個沒有東西是優越的脈絡裡,你無法知道或經驗沒有東西是低劣的。所以,你們創造了優越的幻覺,以讓你們能知道你們與每樣東西是平等的——亦即,你不比任何東西優越。
 
在一個「沒有一體或神性是可能的」的脈絡場之外,你無法經驗到你與神的一體。你必須在那脈絡內,或在我們這裡所說的「幻覺」內,以便能了解幻覺之外所存在的真理。你必須「身在此世卻不屬於此世」。(You must bein this world but not of it.”)
 
同樣的,「你與神,與每樣東西和每個人是平等的」是無法被體驗的,除非並且直到你能夠瞭解「不平等」。
 
你們創造了優越的幻覺,就是為了這理由。
 
 
摘自《與神合一》第15章
 
 
 
A thing cannot be "unequal" to itself. If you take a thing and divide it into parts, the parts  equal the whole. They are not less than the whole, simply because they have been taken apart.
 
Yet the illusion of inequality allows each of the parts to notice itself as the part that it is, rather than seeing itself as the whole. You cannot see yourselves as a part unless you see yourselves as apart. Do you understand? You cannot conceive of yourself as a part of God unless you imagine yourself to be apart from God.
 
Put another way, you cannot see Me unless you stand back and look at Me. Yet you cannot stand back and look at Me if you think that you are Me. So you must imagine that you are not Me, in order to experience Me.
 
You are equal to God, and this equality with God is something that you yearn to experience. You are not inferior to God, nor to anything at all, yet you cannot know or experience lack of inferiority in a context where nothing is superior. You have therefore created the Illusion of Superiority, that you might know that you are equal to everything—which is to say that you are superior to nothing.
 
Your oneness with God cannot be experienced outside of a context in which lack of oneness, or Disunity, is possible.
 
You must be within that context, or what we have here called the illusion, in order to know the truth that exists outside of the illusion. You must be "in this world but not of it."
 
Likewise, your equality with God, and with everything and everyone in life, is not "experienceable" unless and until you can understand inequality.
 
It is for this reason that you have created the Illusion of Superiority.
