Welcome!


A Double Life


Let's take a look at power, at who has it, and how much. Now a man who is a little thing has a little power, or so at any rate he believes. But a God who is No-thing has no power at all, and a God who is All-things has all power. And the Seer, the one who has seen off his humanhood and seen in his Godhood, takes on with it this seeming paradox, this same union of opposites. He is all-powerless and all-powerful, willing nothing and willing everything. What this means in his everyday life is that he so concurs in all God's arrangements for him that he intends them. His will merges with God's, and all happens as he wants it to happen. Not as he superficially desires, of course, but as he deeply desires, in his heart. His real joy and his real peace are to do the will of the One he really is. There they are, the saints and saviours of the world, living what they are preaching - a truly double life - desiring nothing and everything, all-powerless and all-powerful. There is the life that works. A merely human life, in so far as it's possible, isn't practical. I must be God surrendered to God, or a mess. He's fixed it that I must be Him. (Douglas Harding. The Trial of the Man who said he was God.)
