Theme of the walk for today was action. For a mystic, the term act and action only have meaning from a viewpoint of spiritual awareness and are functions within the consciousness. They are not functions we normally think of when we think of the word action in the external world.
For most people. act or action has to do with energy that they put forth in the external world. They see act and action energy that they expend in some form of work or some form of external activity. This form of act or
action emanates basically from the viewpoint of ego. It is the ego that is doing something and getting something done. This concept is a universal truth. no matter what religion or culture a person is living in at this particular time in history.
For the mystic. act and action start at the level of a spiritual principle of Divine certainty. The spiritual intention of what the mystic brings into manifestation is something not actually being done by the mystic. Divine energy is doing it through the mystic as a channel. The intention for an outcome has to be in alignment with Divine principles that are built upon a strong Divine character.
Once the Divine energy begins to operate. the outcome is not predicated upon the actions of the mystic. The outcome has to do with the Divine field of love co-creating with the love intent of spiritual awareness of the mystic. Once the energy has been released, there is no attachment on the part of the mystic to any outcome, as the manifestation will, in its own time, bring the result that the Divine energy intends.
