Purpose as Expression Rather Than Cause
Last week I wrote how the mystical Holy relationship corrects cause and effect. Instead of seeing another as the source (cause) of Love (effect) for you, you recognize Love is the Source (cause) of your relationship (effect). Another way to say this is that the mystical Holy relationship’s purpose is not to cause Love, but to express Love.
Part of correcting cause and effect is redefining the purpose of everything from cause to expression. What happens in time is not to bring a certain end into existence (salvation, atonement, undoing, etc). That end has already occurred. The moment the idea of not-Truth arose, it was undone by Truth’s all-encompassing nature. So time does not bring about the Undoing (Atonement). It expresses it. In time, it seems like the idea of not-Truth arose long ago and its undoing is in some indefinite future. Time takes an idea that was over in a moment and tells it as an unfolding story. So the Undoing is always happening, only in slooooooow motion. The Undoing is what everything in time is for. The Undoing is what the story of time is.
Using the mystical Holy relationship as an example, as an expression of Love’s Eternal Presence, it is a manifest expression of the Undoing. Really, it is the Undoing itself. Where there was not-Truth, Truth becomes manifestly apparent to two minds that once seemed separate. And to any minds that tune into them.
If you see your life as having a purpose to cause something, to bring it into being, then you feel a tremendous pressure to “make it happen” and “get it right”. But when you recognize your life is an expression, an effect, then the pressure is off. You do not have to make anything happen, but rather let your life unfold as the expression of the Undoing that it is. You can rest in the unfolding Undoing, seeking not for what to do, but open to what is being done through you.
