identifying with the specificness of you and embracing the universality of you...

"The specific, meaning what you call the body, will not disappear but it will not fascinate you anymore. You will not choose to view anything from its standpoint anymore. And it will be your body but so will the petal of the rose, and so will the wall, and so will the tree and so will much more of the Kingdom of Heaven that isn't registering with you right now be recognized by you as part of your infinite being.

Mind you, as I said, as this happens you will also be becoming aware of the infiniteness of you and your attention will shift from body identification, from identifying with the specificness of you and embracing the universality of you. When this shift occurs into the universality of you being the vantage point from which you experience All That Is, the body won't disappear but it won't be important to you anymore. It's in that sense that you could say your body will disappear because it will no longer be present in the function that you had been using as you are in this moment today."

Pure Imagination...

"Beloved, You are what you Imagine you are. Nothing, not one thing in your life is Real except for that which is imagined into being. I am not speaking of fantasy here, but Pure Imagination emanating from your divine Soul. Nothing that is, is before it is imagined. Imagination is Infinite, therefore the substance of all things is Infinite. You, my love, are Infinite.
Make your dwelling be in me, where all Power, where all Wisdom and all Love abide in Infinite potential of unfolding grace. I command you to command Me, ask whatever you will in the Essence of Pure Imagination and it shall be done unto you.
You are Pure Imagination, let us create something magical together."
~I Am

There is profound miraculous power in the words above. These words were gifted me while I was experiencing a profound miracle. I had a small stroke in my right eye, the outer ocular nerve had stopped working. I had terrible double vision, a painful condition for an artist. This condition had lasted a number of months. The words above came to me as a healing balm, I believed into them. As a direct result, I was led to a beautiful healer, she laid her hand on my eyes without saying a word. Days later my vision returned. Pure Imagination!

May I make a beautiful suggestion? Find some lovely paper and envelopes. Write out the message above. Mail it to several friends with the return address being only, ~I Am. Make sure to mail one to yourself. You may begin finding miracles before you find your pen.
You are Loved,
~Keith Allen Kay (facebook link)

Our work is Loving the world....

~Mary Oliver
My work is loving the world.

Here the sunflowers, there the hummingbird—

          equal seekers of sweetness.
Here the quickening yeast; there the blue plums.
Here the clam deep in the speckled sand.

Are my boots old? Is my coat torn?

Am I no longer young, and still not half-perfect? Let me
          keep my mind on what matters,

which is my work,

which is mostly standing still and learning to be

The phoebe, the delphinium.

The sheep in the pasture, and the pasture.

Which is mostly rejoicing, since all the ingredients are here,

which is gratitude, to be given a mind and a heart

          and these body-clothes,

a mouth with which to give shouts of joy

          to the moth and the wren, to the sleepy dug-up clam,

telling them all, over and over, how it is

          that we live forever.

focal point of consciousness...

~ Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
Q. “I find it hard to grasp what exactly you mean by saying that you are neither the object nor the subject. At this very moment, as we talk, am I not the object of your experience, and you the subject?”
Maharaj “Look - my thumb touches my forefinger. Both touch and are touched. When my attention is on the thumb, the thumb is the feeler and the forefinger - the self. Shift the focus of attention and the relationship is reversed. I find that somehow, by shifting the focus of attention, I become the very thing I look at and experience the kind of consciousness it has; I become the inner witness of the thing. I call this capacity of entering other focal points of consciousness ‘love;’ you may give it any name you like. Love says, ‘I am everything.’ Wisdom says, ‘I am nothing.’ Between the two my life flows. Since at any point of time and space I can be both the subject and the object of experience, I express it by saying that I am both, and neither, and beyond both.”
I Am That - Chapter 57
