Interaction of Minds
Of course, your mind is interacting with lots of other minds, and creations of other minds in our society; mind begets mind. And you’re trying to live according to the contents of this mind, your mind in conjunction with the collective one. But it is a dream life, a ghost life. It isn’t really there.
Diamond Heart Book Four, pg. 142
The Fulfillment of Our Lives is to See Life Objectively
Without mind, there is no variety, discrimination or differentiation; we see no form and hence, no beauty. The mind is the creator of form, the creator of beauty, and understanding is that process of creation, of unfoldment. So, the fulfillment of our lives is to see life objectively, to see what is really there. To know, for example, that life is the expression and fulfillment and celebration of beauty. This is what we are here for. We're not here for anything else. Everyone wants this life of fulfillment, beauty and harmony. Most people want to reach it without going through the process of understanding. They want it to come from someone else through some magical transmission. They don't want to do it by understanding. But the process is understanding, and can happen in no other way.
