你認為的「別的東西」也是生命的東西（the stuff of Life）。你們即生命，而那生命 ——也就是神—— 所是的，即生命本身。
This “other thing” that you think there is, is the stuff of Life. Yet you are Life, and that which Life is—which is God, Itself.
Still, as long as you imagine that you are separate from God, you will imagine that you are something other than what God is—which is Life itself. You may think that you are that which lives, but you will not imagine yourself to be Life Itself.
You can even imagine that you are in competition—with the birds, with the bees, with every other living thing and all other human beings.
You can create a nightmare in which all that supports your life seems to limit it. Thus, you will actually attempt to subdue that which supports you.
You were told to have dominion, but you have decided that this means domination. So you have actually begun a war with nature, and with the natural order of things.
You have used science and technology to twist and turn and manipulate nature so that it bends to your will. You are slowly destroying nature as it naturally is in an attempt to experience yourself as you already naturally are.
You already are what you seek to be—eternal, unlimited, and one with all—yet you do not remember this. And so, you seek to subdue Life in order that you may have more abundant Life. And you do not even see what you are doing.
