A Universal Blackboard

Practice the art of doing without doing: Aim yourself truly and then maintain your aim without manipulative effort. Meditate on Christ's words: "I can of mine own self do nothing. For by our own power we do nothing; even in loving, it is the love that loves through us.”

Ralph Blum wrote those words in The Book of Runes. It is amazing how short thoughts capture such large concepts. Do without doing, sounds like the basic philosophy of some Eastern Religion. Most of us have a hard time grasping that thought. How could we get anything accomplished without doing something? We are taught to act, to push, and to manipulate in order to get what we want. If we don't do it, who will? Our power rests in our ability to talk louder, think faster and outwit anything or anyone in our reality.

That two thousand year old message that Christ delivered is finally beginning to manifest in the Western world. The Eastern world has been incorporating that message in their reality for centuries. They practice the art of doing without doing.

The act of acceptance is a challenge. The act of releasing is another challenge. Now is the time to accept what is and release what has been.

We are educated to fight and control and then justify those actions. We do what we know or want to know when it comes to love. Our love has been fragmented by rites, rituals and fantasies.

The energy within consciousness is unlimited. We can tap into the consciousness of Christ or any prophet any time we want. All we have to do is ask, and do nothing but believe that all love runs through us.
