in Third Force (Excerpted from The Laws)
by Shirra Meiklejohn-Wilson
are living from the first force of life from birth to age six. At
the onset of egotism, our life momentum switches into second force.
Once our ego comes on board, we no longer remember ourselves and the
long battle begins between the ego as well as the Real Self.
ego wages war upon our essence. Our essence is rarely even heard
in our current omnipresent state of sleep. Soon, essence fades from
our conscious awareness. As a result, we become 'pretend' people.
We pretend to care about things that actually disgust us. We act
horrified at manifestations of existence over which we have no concern
whatsoever. We pretend not to notice when we hurt people. We pretend
to feel fine when, in fact, we are dying inside for any real form
we wake up, The Work Itself becomes the third force within. Eventually,
The Work will turn into third force without. Living, in third force,
is becoming 'food for the sun'; while remaining under the law of
opposites, is a sure sign that the student is still, simply 'food
for the moon'. "Should I or shouldn't I?" indicates a
sure sign of slavery. Third force, by law, joins the opposites into
one unified action.
from first or second force create long karmic streams behind them;
whereas, decisions from third force creates no karmic stream because
the actions of third force are indisputably mobilized into a perfect
solution. So perfect is the solution that even massive problems
are barely noticed because they leave no trace of themselves. The
Work as third force remains invisible, because nothing has been
disturbed. One sure sign of The Work's presence is that the student's
life becomes totally transformed.
