Yeshua: I’m Yeshua, and I come to you in love. My heart is so tender with your efforts here this week…the deep work you are doing to discern the subtle dualities in the self and transcend those dualities.
Somebody made the statement that the saints knew no duality. Of course, these beings that you think of as saints, at some point they were children with a dualistic mind. They had to move past that dualistic mind. The saints as infants were no different than you. The awakened consciousness was present in them. And the dualistic consciousness was present in them. They did the work to transmute that dualistic consciousness and open deeply into the non-dual; to learn how to live the non-dual.
The same is true of me. I was born having previously transcended all duality. And yet, moving into this world of duality, dualistic thought arose at times: anger at somebody, wanting to strike out at somebody. I had to be taught by loving parents and community how to release those dualistic thoughts and come back to the heart of love.
