embracing heaven & earth by andrew cohen – tenet 5 of 5
Impressions by Jodi Hyde
This is the last tenet and my favorite!
the fifth tenet: For the Sake of the Whole
“When you cease to live for yourself, when you give everything you have and everything you are for the sake of the whole, that’s the end of it. It’s the end of you as you’ve known yourself to be. It’s the end of becoming. It’s the end of having a problem that you need to overcome. It’s even the end of striving for Enlightenment. It’s the end of all of that and the beginning of an unconditional response to life that says “YES!” and that only gives. When you stop trying to get anything back for yourself, you will find yourself immersed in an unending revelation of perfect Liberation here and now – always and forever being who you already are.”
