Sign at a church: “If God is your co-pilot, switch seats.”
There is another little grid and map of the process in here.
|1st Pilot||2nd Pilot|
|Phase 1||Small Self||God|
|Phase 2||God||Small Self|
In phase one, we are exclusively identified as the small self and our view functions in a dualistic way. I am here, you and the rest of Existence is out there. I am in the driver’s seat, because no other way is available to me in this situation.
In phase two, I still operate from a somewhat dualistic view (the boundary line around the small self is still there as relatively solid), but I surrender to Existence, to the larger whole.
In phase three, the boundary line between the small self and rest of Existence fades and dissolves. The internal and external to the small self is one seamless whole.
