     “What you want also wants you. If you seek the celestial, the celestial also seeks you. There are no unanswered requests in the universe. If we do not like what we are receiving, we can learn to ask for something different.”

         The invented personality, the artificial self, must have a future to survive. Since the artificial self lives in time, in thought, ordinary thinking, that is time itself, so it must always revolve around time — past and future. If you begin to rob the artificial self of time experiences, it will scream its objections, but in spite of all its objections, it must fade away.
         As it begins to fade away you begin to see yourself — not think yourself — but begin to see yourself, know yourself, as a different entity than you knew yourself before. Because when you cease to recreate your invented personality through thinking — as you cease to recreate it, it begins to dissolve. The dissolution of time and the dissolution of the invented personality are the same thing.
         So gradually, more and more and more, you — your real nature — begins to rest in the here and now, no matter what you are doing, whether you’re sweeping the floor or conducting business, or driving your car, whatever. You begin to get a sense, a sensing that there really is — really is — nothing but right now and that is because that is where you are.
         But for a long time, the pull — the tug of time-thoughts — will try to pull you away from here and now, the timeless state, and will succeed, won’t it? You’ve had this experience where maybe you understand that this is all that counts. There is no past to feel ashamed of, there’s not a future to go to, and there is nothing at all that time-thought can create. This sensing becomes stronger and stronger as all the pieces are put together.

         Man would rather be afraid than study the fear and dissolve it. If you are not making it spiritually, it’s because instead of studying fear out of existence, you would rather be afraid.
         Exercise: Interrupt yourself all day long and honestly describe your inner condition right now. This is entering the rooms in the haunted house. That’s an order! Don’t lie about your inner state.
         This is the key to salvation. You should be jubilant about it. Interrupt yourself all day long, and ask yourself, “Am I in a harmful state right now? Yes!” Name it. Truth will do the rest.
