We must always know one thing: There is one cause, one force that influences and governs us. It has a beginning and an end, and there is a process whereby it advances us. Nobody can influence it; nobody can confuse or change it. This force is absolute.
We can only change ourselves so as to perceive its influence in a better, more pleasant way that is also closer to this force. To the extent that we identify with it and become like it, we will understand, feel, and act in congruence with it, in harmony and equivalence of form, what we refer to as “adhesion.”
In that case, we are prepared to accept everything it subjects us to and greet it with the right feeling, in full partnership, acting in unison with it. There is only one governance. There is nothing else that could be our root.
