What is the motion in the Stillness? Motion is a simulation of rest that extends and retracts rest from rest. Seeming motion is God’s perfectly balanced, dynamic thinking that ever comes from and returns to His absolute rest. From rest in Source come all illusions of activity.
Man shares the Mind of God and the innate ability to think dynamically, and to bring to seeming life his own idea. Man works with the Image Maker of the Self on creating his own image.
When man works in tandem with God’s Pulse of Life; by rhythmic, equal interchange between rest and activity, man knows only the Self-Ecstasy of the Normal State of Mind. The body is forgotten, for it can only seem to be made physical and therefore subject to pain by unbalanced thinking.
I love the following quote from the Divine Iliad that describes how the universe of seeming motion disappears into the dynamic stillness. All “movement” that can never be made real by the belief that Mind can be made physical is qualitatively Known as mental ecstasy:
“E’en though fast moving things of man’s sensing move fast, they simulate My rest, while moving, from which they sprang into seeming motion. Again I say, My universe is but seeming forms of My imagining which seem to move to record the dual pulsing of My balanced thinking. Wherefore I say, the burdens of man are made by man in the image of his unbalanced thinking. Likewise the illnesses of man are fruit of his own making. Balanced thinking is an ecstasy which knows no burden, no fatigue nor imperfection. From man’s own unbalanced thinking emanate the toxins of fatigue, and divers sicknesses, and fears. Wherefore I say, come unto Me, ye self-burdened. Find rest in Me by being Me.”
