The Grace of God

The progressive letting go of positions and moving into an ever-enlarging context brings us to the overall general nature of spiritual work itself.  All that is within the Scale of Consciousness is the ego, from high ego states to low ego states.  The letting go progressively is beneficial because the levels represent points of view – letting go of judgment and vanity that come out of prideful “I know.”  Surrender through humility allows the process of revelation by which the truth is revealed.  There is the progressive process of letting go of these restrictive positions, all of which block the inner consciousness and awareness of the truth.  This awareness automatically emerges out of an energy field and gets progressively higher until it finally reaches a point where one is open to the Grace of God.
