“There will be no test administered. There is no standard that has been set. You are all making up the rules as you go. So there is no need for any of you to worry about whether you are hitting all the right marks. The idea that you are being judged, or measured against some standard, has in some ways been carried over to the spiritual and new age realm from religions.
We do not want to take any shots here at religion. It serves many people. But the one aspect of religion that keeps individuals separate and lower than God is this idea that there are rules set by God and standards that must be met. And we want all of you to leave that behind. We want all of you to acknowledge yourselves as that which you call God and to recognize that this is somewhat of a game you are playing with yourselves.
So when you look at yourself during meditation and decide that you are not doing a very good job, just relax and laugh. That is not what meditation is about. It is not about achieving perfection, nor is yoga, nor is any spiritual practice. They are about enjoying your connection and knowing of self as Divine. And if you are using them as such, then you get an A+ in our book.
Any thoughts of not living up to a standard can easily be released by you now that you are aware that you sometimes do this. And now that you know that, the only thing worth doing at this point is all that encourages you to feel your connection and the spark of Divinity within you. This is not a pass/fail examination. Enjoy the moments that have. Enjoy the feelings as they come, and experience all that you are, however brief those moments are, however rarely they come. Be pleased with every glimpse.
We are Michael. We are infinite. We are Love.”
