The Unitive Experience.
The Oneness is never not available.
V.91 This Moment
Finding the Oneness is one thing, binding to the Oneness is altogether different. In V.91 of the Gospel of Thomas Jesus tells us that the Oneness may only be found in the eternal and present moment. To reside in it requires us to quieten our scattered mindtalk. This is easier said than done as the dramas of the day unfold. We have to go to work and drop the children off at school. We have money worries but the car needs servicing and we desperately need a new washing machine. These are the things that consume our inner world as our task list stretches endlessly on. Is it any wonder that Jesus recommends fasting from the system, knowing as he did that it consumes every ounce of our lives. We need to start small. If we can be present in this moment then we can be present in the next. The more we reside in the presentness the easier binding to the Oneness becomes. I try and fail, and then try again. It is the nature of all spiritual quests.
