There is a line set down by other people relative to a person’s relationship with and participation in immanent Presence. This line or wall is heavily guarded and fortified by the protectorate of outward forms. The outward weapons of this protectorate are religious and political ideology, theology, tradition, similitudes, practices, etc. The nuclear weapon of the protectorate is the abstracted “God” who speaks to them and tells them how to direct and lead others so that to not follow the protectorate’s direction is to not follow God; for it is not the protectorate you are turning against but God who the protectorate mediates. “And after all” says the protectorate, we love you and we only want what is good for you and what God tells us is good for you.” This is the weapon they use when all else fails against those who just will not come to heel and have crossed the line and speak to such participation in and identification with immanent Presence that they experience their being as immanent Presence itself in itself and no longer look to outward constructs and other people to guide and direct. The protectorate and the weapons they use to bring others to heel becomes of no consequence. This interpenetration between and oneness with immanent Presence itself in itself and human being is the line that the protectorate will not abide crossing but have no power to repress once the Life itself in itself is known and embraced in human being.
I am the Life itself in itself to the measure that this Life is in me anchoring my conscious and informing my conscience. I declare to have crossed line. I have breached the wall and stand on the raggedy edge and I intend to misbehave.
