I recently said, "There is a moment where imagination becomes vision, where thinking becomes seeing, where binary mind becomes analogical, and the dream takes on a life of its own. Depending on how much one knows Oneness, this can be seen as a communication between two, or one."
What is that moment? It is a moment that "you" can't do, can't make happen.
It's directly related the uncertainty principle. :)
You can increase the odds of it happening, but when, and whether, it happens, "you" are not the doer.
We are talking about Grace.
May I define that moment as the meeting place or bridal chamber of the finite and the infinite,
the microcosm and the macrocosm, influence and effluence.
To "increase the odds" is a matter of alignment. As far as doing goes, we can only prepare the vessel/field to be a fit receiver for that which we desire to attract.
Then we have to not-do.
If "you" sit in front of the Christ-mass-Tree all night waiting for "Santa", you'll end up with no gifts. :)
You can't keep digging up the seed to see if it is sprouting.
The caterpillar has to surrender/die for the butterfly to be born.
You have to allow Grace.
It's a mysterious relationship - difficult to describe.
