“The planet has seen many changes. It has appeared and disappeared many times. It flickers off and on – but because of the intervals of your attention, each “on” period seems to last for millions of years, of course, while at other levels the earth is like a firefly, flickering off and on.
“I do not mean by such a description to minimize the importance of physical life, for All That Is endows each portion of its own transformed reality with a unique existence that is duplicated nowhere else, and each spark of consciousness is endowed with a divine heritage that is never extinguished – a spark that is apparent in all other corners of the universe.”
(Dreams, “Evolution” and Value Fulfillment Vol 2, Session 918)
