The reflections you accept into the miror of your mind in time but bring eternity nearer or farther. But eternity itself is beyond all time. Reach out of time and touch it, with the help of its reflection in you. And you will turn from time to holiness, as surely as the reflection of holiness calls everyone to lay all guilt of side. Reflect the peace of Heaven here, and bring this world to Heaven (T-14.X.1:2-6).

People say, what do I do? How do I get to oneness? It seems that the One is in love with itself but also loves playing hide-and-seek. It appears in various ways at various times. Perhaps it appears as A Course in Miracles. Or Emily Dickinson poems or walks in the forest.
There is a whisper - a subtle but intoxicating call - which is always the Beloved's hymn to Itself. The form in which you hear it is not important - the song itself is what matters. A Course in Miracles talks about this in The Song of Prayer.
[P]rayer takes the form that best will suit your need . . . The real sound is always a song of thanksgiving and Love . . . It is the song that is the gift . . . In true prayer you hear only the song (S-In.2:1, I.2:9, 3:2, 4).
So the call may show up in surprising forms, or in forms you have long overlooked, or even in forms you thought you had left behind or didn't care about. And the form isn't really the point, save that when we turn gently and in a sustained way towards the form, the real song - the real awareness - Truth itself - resonates and clarifies until at last it is all there is.
This is simply one way to say it, or see it. There are others, surely.
