A journal entry from February and 2019. I have no idea where the quote came from...
"Life is a magic trick and you are the magician." page 129 (of what book I have no idea). It's not the Big Book... So in the journal I'm looking at I cut and pasted pages from a different journal. Some of the page pasting and copying and pasting apparently got out of order.
I just posted the Swallow Time entry and wondered at the end why I was here... I just found the book that the above quote is from. Communion With God by Neale Donald Walsch. Here's a few more quotes from page 129. A fucking answer to the query I just posted moments ago. Holy Shit Spirit... thanks!?!
"In the absence of the illusions, then, you are - quite literally - neither here nor there.
And so, you have collectively produced these magnificent illusions. A world - and indeed, a Universe - of your own creation. This has provided you with a contextual field within which you may decide and declare, create and express, experience and fulfill Who You Really Are.
You have all done this. The lot of you. Every on of you who are the individuations of the Divine Whole. You are, each of you, seeking to know yourself, to define yourself.
Who are you? Are you good? Are you bad? what is "good"? what is "bad"? Are you big? Are you small? What is "big"? What is "small"? Are you any of these things? What does it mean to be these things? Are you wondrous indeed?
This is the only question that God ever had. Who am I? Who am I? Who am I?
And who do I now choose to be?
This is the only question that matters, and this is what your soul is using your life to decide, every moment.
Not to find out. To DECIDE. For life is not a process of discovery, it is a process of creation. Every act is an act of self-definition.
God is in the process of self-creation and self-experience in every moment. That is what you are doing here. And you are using the experience of that which you are not in order to the the experience of That Which You Really Are. ...
Therefore, use the illusions, and be grateful for them. Your life is a magic trick, and you are the magician."
