Regarding greatness? My lesson these days is constantly remembering I AM connected, one with God, Divine Intelligence, Love, Truth. The shift in me when I do this is phenomenal. Yet, remembering seems so illusive.

I'm realizing my greatness has less to do with what I do in the world and is rather who I AM. As Tolle says, it's the Being part of Human Being. It seems a process of remembering and forgetting and remembering. But these days I am blessed because even when I forget, I remember that the remembering is so sweet...

it leads you to notice
and more"

Barbara - yes, that's the whole point in being, isn't it - that's where the greatness lies, even when we forget it at time.

My worlds are integrating more quickly than I ever could have imagined and it's amazing. I'm waking up to things that have been there all along, but I just didn't notice. Books I've read years ago are now starting to make sense and I've beginning to see divine order in nearly everything. I'm loving the Eckhart Tolle and Oprah webcast!

As for greatness, I am beginning to realize that I've been a thinker all my life and I used to think that was my greatness. I'm beginning (and JUST beginning) to realize that perhaps the greatness I used to identify with has more to do with my ego than with the me that is on the other side of my ego and beyond all that thinking I've been doing all my life. This distinction between the human and the being is a new concept for me and I'm working on recognizing the part of me that is not my role or my function but the observer beyond or within that.

I like that our friend Dick calls that core of us the "genius" and to me the genius is the closest term I can wrap my mind around when it comes to understanding the greatness. But of course that involves thinking again!

As I type here I begin to see that, really, words are unnecessary when we really "get" this stuff. Perhaps words are at the ego level and beyond words is the level of spirit or God consciousness. I see glimpses of that in my life but they are still few and far between!

Thank you, Deb, for this very inspiring post!

Jodee, I'm guilty of being a thinker too! You nailed it - words are unnecessary when we "get" our greatness. Yet words can help us claim the "knowing."
