around which we share who we are. What we do here is a form of dialogue. One comment leads to another and another and there’s wonderful insight gained—not only on the subject at hand—but on the person engaged in the dialogue. It is a place to “share who we are” by “expressing who we are.” To see that this is how we come to know the truth of ACOL. There is no other way. We are to be in union AND relationship. To engage wholeheartedly with one another. To share our experience as humanly divine beings engaged in creation of the new.”

with others in a shared purpose. As Jesus says: 

. . . [W]hat you come to know may literally not be sharable with those who remain in a separate state except through the sharing of who you are and who you know others to be. This is why you were told specifically not to evangelize or attempt to convince. . . By being who you are, and seeing others as who they truly are, you create the relationship in which sharing can occur. Without relationship there is no willingness and no union. Without relationship, you behave as a separated self attempting to communicate union from the state of separation. This does not work. Join with your brother and sister in Christ, however, and sharing becomes effortless and joyful and effective. Cause and effect become one. Means and end the same. (D:13.11,12)

 

And: “It will matter that someone will look at you and be drawn to the truth of him- or herself that is seen reflected there.” (T3:21.22)
