Rupert Spira on What Grace Looks Like

Effort is just what Grace (Awareness) looks like, from the point of view of the separate self….

So there is no conflict between making efforts and grace. We feel the efforts we make to return to our true nature, we feel “I am taking the journey back to our true nature”.

We don’t yet know that it is (Grace) reeling us in… No, the separate self does nothing. There is no separate self either to do something or not to do something…

So if you feel that you need to make the effort, make the effort, but know that it is always (Awareness) that is doing.
