The millennium is every day. It's the new birth going on continuously, encouraging us to be of a pure heart and a newborn spirit. It is not about time. Time, itself, is one of those golden images, or false gods, that we bow down to, and I have tried to be like the Hebrew men in the Bible story in the book of Daniel and refuse to do that (see chap. 3). In the global consciousness, however, the millennium is, I think, a significant hypothetical touchstone that gives us license to a fresh, clean start from which we can move forward.

I've been thinking a lot about "unselfing" lately. "Unselfing" is very different from being unselfish. Unselfing is knowing that my real selfhood, and that of everyone else, is not contained in a material body, and does not include a mind separate from God. Our true selfhood is Christlike, and we each show this forth as we reflect only the divine Mind that made us. Understanding this helps us stop limiting ourselves or others, and allows us to represent fully and freely the infinite God. Jesus said "I can of mine own self do nothing" (John 5:30). And then he went and did everything, all because he realized no selfhood apart from God.
