As it is....(Hays response)..


It's whole and


As it is

Regardless of the

Swirl of stories

Which simply are

Wholeness expressing

Whatever it seems...


That piece pretty much says it.  Sin and separation are seen as synonymous.  That is something that
Christians don't seem to appreciate..but it makes things much more simple.  Start with separation, and consider
the implications of no-separation, no time and space, cause and effect, etc., and no "things."  Ending the 
assumption that separation is the reality, which is a persistent assumption for all of us. This makes no sense. 
Can't be understood. But, somehow, separation may appear as "before."  No-thing appears as everything, 
which may feel like  wholeness, or peace beyond understanding, or grace.  That's the short story.

Maybe a shorter story, referred in the piece, is simply to say that the Whole is acting, not the believed separate

And recognizing the above as stories, collections of words, seems important..and there may, or may not, be
a resonance...  (Seeing stories as stories provides the needed grain of salt!  😀 )


The Ultimate Sin

Give up your separateness.

For whom does the bell toll?

It tolls for you.

Who is crowned queen?

You are—and beggar, fool, and clown.

That is the sin: to be only your puny self

when you are really world and godhead.

Give up vanity, yes, and lies and pride.

Give up judging (the one you judge is yourself ).

But above all, renounce being many, multitude, and mad.

Go sane.

You are the whole, not part;

the entire, not the piece.

Come home to being world

and galaxy

and universe.

I beg you,

sacrifice non-being,

the illusion of being only you.

Be what you are:

be all.

I beg of you, stop sinning:

give up your separateness.
