The godhead is never an object of its own knowledge. It’s always an endless mystery to itself. And this “I don’t know,” uttered in the infinite interior of the spirit, is the same thing as I love, I let go, I don’t try to force or control; it’s the same thing as humility. If you know that you truly don’t understand, then you understand. And the principle is, anytime you cease to cling to yourself, the energy you waste defending yourself is available and you are one with the divine principle. When you are trying to act as if you were god, you lose the divine energy. So the principle is, the more you give it away, the more it comes back.
Everything is constantly dissolving, falling apart, dying. That allows you to know that there’s nothing to hold onto. When you really get with that, suddenly you find you have the power, this enormous excess of energy. It came to you not because you grabbed it, but in the entirely opposite way. And power that comes to you in that opposite way is power with which you can be trusted.
