My brother’s birthday and two of my children, then there’s Halloween.
Halloween was my eldest daughter’s favorite holiday as it is for many people nowadays.
I love the cooler weather.
I am a sweater-weather girl. 🙂
It is the season for new beginnings for me.
I think that idea came from going to school with new clothes because I was the eldest and had grown out of the others.
There was the chance that this time I would meet someone that would tell me life was real here.
I never found that person though I would search for decades. In people, philosophies, religions, organizations, etc. I did not understand then that it was not to be found.
Today, I know better than to look outside to find comfort or peace.
I am grateful for that witness.
Inside is a Divine Voice that whispers, “You have value and purpose.” We all have it.
Finding it and learning to be willing to yield to it and trust it is the greatest gift I could give to anyone, ever!
I offer this, my testimony, that there is a divinity within you that will guide you to the Atonement once you are willing to “look and see” beyond the horrors that your spiritual eye will show you about the world.
Even the moments of respite and those who seem to have it all together or “the perfect” life live in an illusion of smoke and mirrors.
I do not say this to take away your faith and hope but to shed light on the faith and hope that we have in the Atonement’s forgiveness and awareness that we have never left the perfection of our creation.
I testify that there is a God who knows us and loves us and is capable of washing away all of that which is not of Him and He resides within you, not as you alone but as all that is and MORE.
He is more than all of us and yet needs us as much as we need Him. That is how great and perfect His generosity of creation is.
If a human were that vulnerable he would be crushable because of free will, but the Entity that created the Son endowed Him with all that the Father is as there is nothing else that could be.
The Son only thinks that His Will could be something different than the Father’s but someday He will understand it is not possible.
I live within the witness of the Atonement and in the reality of new beginnings every day.
I know that despite the clouds and fog that come with (the separation) fall (pun intended) that God is aware and everything is proceeding in its path for the benefit of all creation.
This is my witness, in the name of Christ, the Holy Son of God and all that is, amen.
What else guides us to our destiny and voice in this time of existence?
The messages are a bit more personal this week and maybe could be considered “heavier” than previous readings. Then again, it is perhaps just me and where I am in my learning.
Remember, I share these things as I feel directed by the Holy Spirit at this time. Please use responsible reflection and listen to your inner guidance system while we seek greater light together.
We each had gifts given to us from the beginning of time.
Your gift may be tenacity, curiosity, or a talent to be used in the physical world found in any of the arts or sciences of humanity or any sort of “being”.
They give you a specific perspective and language to share the message that those living in the physical world need to hear which is the Atonement and that this is not “life” but a time of “unveiling”.
The gifts also place you in the vicinity of those you have agreed to reach in accordance to the Universal Plan that Jesus, and many other ascended masters have established for the restoration of the Son to full awareness of who He is.
I believe that a key gift of Jesus’ was that of having a direct memory of being in the presence of God with the Whole Sonship. This is why we may exercise faith in his witness of the truthfulness of Christ AND the Creator who is Father of All That Is.
Jesus also has the willingness and ability to be aware of the whole Sonship and each of its parts completely without judgment, while exercising patience and urgency at the same time. This may be key to why he was able to accept the Atonement and the role of sharing it with the whole Sonship.
One of my signature traits is the ability to be a “people person” while at the same time not having the “adhesiveness” that allow me to be connected to anything here. I used to consider this a flaw but today I see it as the spiritual gift it is.
have written this in a negative way in the past and there are enormous libraries filled with books on how to correct this gift. But it has allowed me to be very altruistic and inclusive in my affections.
Granted, it has its negative connotations in the physical world because my ability to see the best in people has made me a target for words, and behaviors, like slut and whore but hey, I would not have had it any other way.
Today, I understand that union cannot be found in the physical and it is often used for bondage and attack, instead of peace and comfort.
I suspect that each of our gifts can be used to lift humanity or to enslave it. It is the Atonement alone that decides which direction it will be. I understand that this is a strong statement but I stand by it.
It is my understanding that when Christ fully wakens, each of us will have access to all of the gifts, for we each have been endowed with all that the Father has.
This is what I have referred to as one of the three temptations. The other two being power-hunger or bullying and depression.
Addiction covers a great deal more than just injected substances.
Behaviors and even attitudes can be addictive, not to mention habits or simply “getting in a rut”.
My perspective on addiction is that it may not be an inherently negative thing and may well work as a glue of sorts to that which we truly desire which is the presence of God.
In this world of illusion where we feel we are separated from God, however, that which draws and attracts is used as a tool of the ego to attack, bind, and torture the individual which affects many others since “no man is an island”.
In my experience of watching addictions, it would appear that you never really get rid of them, you simply trade them for a different or newer model. A drug addict may become addicted to a healthy lifestyle which we call good or advancement or better.
Yet, it does not matter where the addiction shows itself, if the adhesive pull is not to God, the Father and Creator of All That Is, it is wasteful to the eternal life of the Son.
I mean no disrespect to families but if your goal is to simply populate an existence that defies God, aren’t we missing something?
PTSpD, Post Traumatic Separation Disorder, will not leave you.
It is part of the witness that life, as we understand it as separate from God, is a mistake.
With the Atonement in your life, it becomes understandable and bearable, even something to be thankful for.
How can we expect to be living in a place where we are separated from that which gives us “life” and not be dissatisfied or distressed by that reality?
See it for the blessing that it is by understanding that it can be used as the fuel to motivate the will to receive the Atonement. Which will bring about the undoing of the original error of belief in separation from God through absolving forgiveness for what must surely be a hallucination in the mind of the Son of God.
The Holy Spirit is the one that sees PTSpD and will carry the burden for us, especially once we accept the Atonement.
This has been one of the largest blessings and revelations of my life!
The Holy Spirit is able to see the dark and still remember the light and truth. It is no burden for Him because He knows there is no truth in the dark.
The Holy Spirit will carry the weight of sorrow when you are willing to open your eyes and see what we are really doing in the world to one another and not make excuses or justify that which tears down the light and spirit of any individual.
We do need to ask Him to do so, however. (I had to ask Him to help me carry the weight of the cries that I could hear in my soul of those who were being molested in neighborhoods near and far.)
PTSD, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, is brought about by traumatic experiences that leave us ruminating in the terror of what occurred. It can manifest in ways that are obvious, such as night terrors, where we relive the trauma and leave us feeling as if we have no way to remove ourselves from it.
Likewise, PTSpD affects our experiences. This is the cause of the sense of humanity’s belief that we are vulnerable and able to be harmed. It is behind all of humanity’s fear. And humanity’s belief in its need to defend itself.
Even with A Course In Miracles being around for nearly fifty years we still do not understand that there is a God.
So ingrained is our belief that we have betrayed Him that we have denied His very existence and fight it with every kind of strategy the confusion of the ego can devise.
The Atonement is the only sure answer because the Atonement acknowledges God and our relationship to one another. Among the students of ACIM, there is a tendency to acknowledge the oneness of humanity and even all creation while denying the existence of God, Himself.
This needs to change.
God will not be denied.
What more can I say?
Till next time, God bless, bye for now.
We can be so much more.
Reading from Mama’s Christmas Carol, You Got the Power, Mom! by Debra (Debi) Yvonne Simmons.
It is vital that we teach others “to seek” to know themselves by doing so ourselves.
Each of us lives in a world entirely of the makings of our own mind in line with the Universal Plan that has us each fulfilling a significant role in the Redemption of Christ. And each of us needs to be allowed, and have the desire to find and fulfill that role.
In other words, I do not believe that the egos we have or the “roles” we have taken on, or seek to get out from under in this world, are coincidental or “created” here.
It is in our minds that we are either connected or separated. And only our minds “are able to” unite, even though we claim to do so in many kinds of human unions and gatherings.
We are thinking a lot about “gathering” lately but we need to understand it is not the bodies we need to gather but our desire and focus so that it is on God, the Father. You can call Him Creator or Universe as long as you understand He is greater than all that is.
This is our one true freedom and choice. To see connection or separation.
Our connection acknowledges the Son of God, while separation allows us to continue to “manifest within our minds” scenarios that play out loss and death, even on the most gentle and tame of them.
This is the eternal life that Jesus was speaking of that we have only in the recognition of our wholeness as one Son before or even “within” God. Because it is within God’s Mind that we have essence or existence. (I am not sure that humanity has a term for the essence that we are as I am not certain that “spirit” or “energy” truly addresses it.)
First, we acknowledge this connection by accepting the Atonement which is the undoing of the belief that there is anything outside of God, and forgiving all consequences (past, present, and future) of that belief.
Then by living in the state of Atonement, we know in our minds that we are not alone and we express gratitude to all that is for all that we are, and we seek guidance through the Inner Voice, also known as Holy Spirit.
You can think of it as intuition, mother’s instinct, gut feeling but it is something that is not surmised by the logical calculations of this world or past experiences. It is a knowing and guidance system that literally connects us to one another as well as directly to God.
You are of Him (God, the Father), in Him, worthy of all that He is, innocent as a child is, and capable of making mistakes.
Making mistakes is not the “end of the world”, rather it was the beginning of an unreal world that believed in separation, fear, lack, and ultimate death.
Father took the mistake and made it a state of training to embrace the reality that we are one with each other and one in God and that it is from Him that we receive all that we stand in need of.
It is a truth that is much bigger than humanity currently has the ability to even imagine and make no mistake, God will prepare us in every way necessary.
Shove off that cloak of guilt, shame, and embarrassment, whether it was created by someone else or by you, it does not belong.
You do not need to save someone else or lay down, so they can step on you to get to higher ground.
Consider reaching out to others because you want to, not because you must.
Give them the space to reach out to Father as you have.
We want to reach out (or up or in, however it makes sense to you) for God first and foremost, because that is the source of your true power and identity, not bodies, organizations, bank accounts, or landmasses.
Fear, imposed by the belief in separation from God, brings with it all kinds of nightmares. Let it go and rest in your faith in God by forgiving it all. He will not fail you.
Do be prepared for mighty changes in how you see things and especially in how you perceive yourself and your responsibilities to others because they are His Son, also, and have access to His guidance and blessings as they face their own fears.
Do not be afraid to “see” one another and to allow each to express both celebrations and failures.
Humanity often does this when they do not like something. They cover their eyes or go into denial but this is not the end of who they are, this is a child crying out for relief.
Embrace the moment and embrace them if only in your heart. See them. Hear them. They will not leave you “alone” or abandon you in death or otherwise. Even if it looks that way because it is an impossibility.
I believe some of the recent public outrages about many diverse injustices and imbalances of recognition are moving us in the right direction.
In the reading, there were three aces which represent new beginnings and a nine suggesting things may be “coming to a head”. I, for one hope so because it suggests that we will be making a shift into a healthier state of mind and awareness.
Make no mistake, it needs to be done on an individual basis, not organizations of any sort. We must learn to think as the one entity that we are and only then will we begin to prepare for the true destiny to which humanity has been called.
I really sense that there is something that God would have us do that serves a much more expansive outreach than we now understand. Star Trek, anyone? 🙂
Disclaimer: I do not know what is to come after but I suspect it serves both God and His Son very well.
Till next time, God bless, bye for now.
Freedom happens within one’s understanding.
I am attempting to do weekly readings as the “unveiling” allows.
Living the Atonement raises awareness for the Whole Sonship, which is “all that is” within the mind of God.
⁶In the service of the right mind the denial of error frees the mind, and re-establishes the freedom of the will. ⁷When the will is really free it cannot miscreate, because it recognizes only truth. (ACIM, T-2.II.2:6–7)
The “right mind” is where we live when we live in the Atonement.
⁷In the holy instant, in which you see yourself as bright with freedom, you will remember God. ⁸For remembering Him is to remember freedom. (ACIM, T-15.I.10:7–8)
The “holy instant” is a part of the Atonement where you know the oneship of the Son and that God IS.
See others as the love of God you both are.
2. Guilt feelings are the preservers of time. ²They induce fears of retaliation or abandonment, and thus ensure that the future will be like the past. ³This is the ego’s continuity. ⁴It gives the ego a false sense of security by believing that you cannot escape from it. ⁵But you can and must. ⁶God offers you the continuity of eternity in exchange. ⁷When you choose to make this exchange, you will simultaneously exchange guilt for joy, viciousness for love, and pain for peace. ⁸My role is only to unchain your will and set it free. ⁹Your ego cannot accept this freedom, and will oppose it at every possible moment and in every possible way. ¹⁰And as its maker, you recognize what it can do because you gave it the power to do it.
I do not believe that we would have guilt if we did not see ourselves as separate and capable of retaliation or abandonment.
It is not getting rid of the “ego” that we want to do but calming it and helping ourselves and one another know that we did not do the terrible things that we believe we have and that we have not left God, nor has He abandoned us.
PTSpD (Post Traumatic Separation Disorder) is released as we truly forgive.
It may not happen all at once but it does soften and become more bearable.
³Free will must lead to freedom. ⁴Judgment always imprisons because it separates segments of reality by the unstable scales of desire. ⁵Wishes are not facts. ⁶To wish is to imply that willing is not sufficient. ⁷Yet no one in his right mind believes that what is wished is as real as what is willed. ⁸Instead of “Seek ye first the Kingdom of Heaven” say, “Will ye first the Kingdom of Heaven,” and you have said, “I know what I am and I accept my own inheritance.” (ACIM, T-3.VI.11:3–8)
¹¹By offering freedom you will be free. (ACIM, T-8.IV.7:11) This, I believe is the key to deliverance from PTSpD.
When living in the Atonement, we see others as an actual part of ourselves, and we need to do nothing to lift and encourage them (in truth) because their personal power is reflected in our essence.
This may be a very difficult concept to accept since it seems to go against all that humanity has taught us for thousands of years.
Yet please, take a moment to reread the statement and I suspect you will find the resonance of its truth and wisdom.
Consider this, within the illusion, we use others and situations to enhance our own sense of well-being and empowerment.
⁷In the holy instant, in which you see yourself as bright with freedom, you will remember God. ⁸For remembering Him is to remember freedom. (ACIM, T-15.I.10:7–8)
In truth, all power is from God and each part of the Sonship is privy to that.
One who does this sincerely is often accused of being “crazy” by the world.
Yet, knowing your strength as one and that of others in the oneness of the Father is freedom and redemption, and joy.
Till next time, God bless, bye for now.
No spoiler alert is necessary. Only accolades for a job well done and my personal review.
It is the finest use of modern cinematic technology and directing that I have ever seen on topics that I hold very dear to my heart! In fact, the more bizarre the idea the more welcome! With just the right amount of “T” and “A”.
*Yeah, I said that, haha!
I do not know all the terminology for the field of movie-making to do this justice, but as a layperson, I know what I like!
The way that they are able to take delightfully mundane yet universal concepts and make them “hot” and “palatable” in a fun, irreverent way is remarkable!
I saw that they got an Emmy nomination which is well deserved, I must say!
The character development is phenomenal!
They draw you in and are so damn likable and relatable it is, well, a job well done!
One-liners and keywords make my heart leap at the idea that we are even discussing them!
The music and choreography, in the acting and the dancing, wow!
It is worth anyone’s time in my opinion to watch all 6 seasons.
If you haven’t seen it, get to it!
I am on my second viewing of season six! Well done!!!
I strongly sense that I will want to watch all six seasons again to glean the gems that reside in this very smart and sophisticated yet understated television experience..
And thank you, everyone, who brought the series together!
It’s actually given me support when I could really use it!
And that is what makes it so dynamic to me personally!

Only in the Atonement will it be found, one individual at a time.
And in the process, you will believe you are going mad.
Mental health within the illusion is not going to happen. Survival of the body and lack of death due to physical attack are not mental health signs.
Mental health begins at the premise of whom one believes one is, which is cast onto others that one perceives. We are created by God and death is not in His vocabulary.
Mental health will be found only when humanity finds itself as the Son of God and in His everlasting care.
Being “alive” is the only criteria of this witness and it comes with no dogma; only the recognition of the love the Father has for the Son and the love the Son has for the Father.
Until then, we will protect the bodies and attack the spirit of one another in the name of “protection” and “kindness” to “toughen children and subservient individuals up” and show that they must be “lacking somehow” or they would not “cave” to the mental abuse we throw at them.
Those abuses and abusers are hidden and mischievous and often behind smiles and comments such as “I love you”.
Mental health cannot even be dreamed of without the Atonement in place.
Without placing ourselves in God’s good graces through absolute absolving forgiveness, and God in His supreme and omnipotence we will subject one another (IE self in reality) to abuse, and, to me, that is the definition of mental illness.
Forgiveness of the original error of belief in separation from God and recognition of our complete reliance on Him is our only Salvation.
imho (in my humble opinion)
And as we move into this things will really start to “boil.” It must, for the thoughts that make up the illusion must be exposed so that they may be expressed, and the truth of our confusion to be made manifest in the light of that which remains “faithfully exposed by its own Light”, which is our presence in and reliance on only God, the Father.
We cannot be afraid of ourselves or have a fear of that which is not manifest. Because what you will see will be horrific. I can’t pretend anything else. When you are ready to accept the Atonement you will see how the Ego uses this world to destroy, even those it professes to love.
This is why the Holy Spirit is needed because you may feel as if you are “going to die” as you “see behind the masks of the smiles and I love you’s.”
The Holy Spirit will comfort you and bear witness of God’s Love for His Son of which you are a part. This comes from nowhere else.
Hold on and have confidence in God’s belief in us and faith in that truth that may “appear” to be unseen. And have no doubt that this will move us into an entirely different realm/place/understanding of existence.
There is no one to “follow” save the Inner Voice that declares you ARE because God IS. Without your consent to the Atonement, it cannot be fulfilled so your part is crucial and gratitude is owed to everyone else because their part is critical as well.
Be aware of what Spirit brings your way through others but trust that Inner Voice above all.
Humanity is ready to accept this or I could not be writing this post, but it will happen one individual at a time, not by the masses or with a leader as has been attempted in the past. Unless that leader can help you find your own Inner Guidance System.
Until then death and tyranny will be our lot. Fear will rule and mental illness will continue to be pandemic. Crushing humanity, yes, but more importantly, keeping us from a far greater work that we have been called to do that the human mind cannot even fathom at this time.
One heart at a time.
Till next time, God bless, bye for now.
For those willing to dive deep, from A Course In Miracles:
“6. Wrong-mindedness listens to the ego and makes illusions; perceiving sin and justifying anger, and seeing guilt, disease, and death as real. ²Both this world and the real world are illusions because right-mindedness merely overlooks, or forgives, what never happened. ³Therefore it is not the One-mindedness of the Christ Mind, Whose Will is One with God’s.
*My understanding is that the Atonement puts us in right-mindedness because it is a place of seeing what we are really doing to ourselves and forgiving it because this simply could not be real.
7. In this world the only remaining freedom is the freedom of choice; always between two choices or two voices. ²Will is not involved in perception at any level and has nothing to do with choice. ³Consciousness is the receptive mechanism, receiving messages from above or below; from the Holy Spirit or the ego. ⁴Consciousness has levels and awareness can shift quite dramatically, but it cannot transcend the perceptual realm. ⁵At its highest it becomes aware of the real world and can be trained to do so increasingly. ⁶Yet the very fact that it has levels and can be trained demonstrates that it cannot reach knowledge.” (ACIM, C-1.6:1–7:6)
*Some students of the Course believe that we do not have an identity in God because “consciousness is not real”.
I truly can respect that view and I know that Eastern philosophies have stated that for some time.
If I had not lived the experiences I did and know how hard Jesus and the Holy Spirit worked with me and the patience they had to let me know that I did have an identity that mattered and was valuable I could probably accept that.
And, to tell you the truth, if I simply get consumed into the body of God and lose my identity that would be okay with me.
But I still do not buy it.
I think we move on “as one with God” as Jesus does.
At least for a few million years yet and what comes after I trust with all my heart that we will be prepared for it by a loving and benevolent Father.
What do you think?
Summer Reading from Mama’s Christmas Carol, You God the Power, Mom!
Be compassionate and courteous to one another.
Just be sure to include being compassionate and courteous to yourself.
We all know what this means.
What is important to recognize as we transition into life again, and hopefully, into life from the place of the Atonement, is that not everyone is healthy mentally.
In fact, most of us are quite ill.
To ignore it is to leave others wounded, show our children that this “behavior” must be acceptable, and degrade our own selves subconsciously so that we undermine our own relationship with the Creator.
Sometimes those who have labels in the world such as government, police, or IRS are seen as Power-Hungry.
It is important to recognize that those we are taught “have our backs” can also be Power-Hungry.
What an interesting way to put this.
We think that bodies are supposed to gather, yet that which dies cannot be real or eternal, so there must be some other place that we gather and acknowledge God within ourselves.
In English one would call it the mind; the word you use really does not matter, as long as you understand it is that part of you that is eternal.
We all reside there, together, with God.
Take time in the day to gather in your mind in peace until that is where you exist no matter where you be in the world. In this state of mind you will never be alone, no matter how many you are around or how isolated you may be.
What this does is not allow you as a person to see and work out your issues with God through the Holy Spirit.
That is a real tabboo in the “civilized world”.
Actually, both, being upset and working it out with the Holy Spirit.
Here is the thing though. Only you can give that power away, and it is a power to unite with God through the Holy Spirit and your higher self or selves.
We can get “laughed out of it”, “bullied out of it”, or manipulated out of it with a smile and kindness, or circumstances we find ourselves in but it is available at our request.
The “catch” might be that we need to be willing to hear and act on what we are being told is for our highest good and that witness only comes from inside.
Becoming aware of the Atonement that Jesus asks us to partake in allows us to walk with the Holy Spirit and to grow into His Voice that involves giving up only what is not real.
I testify of what Jesus has shared with me and I speak of it as one who has been willing to experiment on his word.
If I am “barking up the wrong tree” I guess I will be okay with that.
I have not found anyone else who has given me any answers that make more sense than his.
Rather than believe there is no God or that He is vengeful and uses us as toys for His amusement just to have experience, it make sense to me that the Son may have had the mistaken belief that He had separated from God for a split second and a few of us got in that time warp.
Allow the Holy Spirit to take hold of the future by releasing your hold on fear. This allows Him to clean up the attachments and trauma that existed in the past.
It has taken me years to walk into this place where I am today. It has meaning to me that its beyond my wildest imaginations. I do not believe everyone needs to take that much time, especially if we are willing to learn from others experiences.
As I walk closer to the last quarter of my life I find that I am more willing to step out in faith.
Those who I thought depended on me are solid and have their own inspiration and direction from the Holy Spirit if they should seek it.
It is not my place to worry or hover around them. I release them in love and joy in their adventures.
Knowing that I have value as a voice for God through the Holy Spirit is important.
My experiences will become part of the storage of knowledge that we may access in the vaults of the Holy Spirit that help others not have to step into the place of challenge if they will acknowledge who and what they truly are.
Empowerment of self is how we give the light of empowerment to others.
Jesus did this in his walk on the earth as have others throughout the ages. As we take our turns again here on this plain of “unveiling” we will not have to experience many of the challenges previously met.
The Atonement is the way to reach that understanding within our hearts and minds.
Every person that you meet is Christ.
He is either in His right mind and knows he walks with God, lacking nothing or He is blinded by the ego’s fear bias.
You will know by your witness of the Holy Spirit with whom you walk.
This is also not to wonder if we need protect ourselves for we are protected until our work is done and we may count on our ability to serve well just as we may have confidence that all others do as well.
Stepping into the Atonement, and walking there, is our first responsibility in the world. That puts us, through forgiveness, in complete communion God and under the guidance of the Holy Spirit along with Jesus and other’s who know the truth.
Honoring ourselves has nothing to do with telling others how to live or justifying how we live. It has to do with living per the witness of the Holy Spirit and honoring ourselves. Thus giving thanks for the potential of life that we have in God and through Him.
We may recognize that Power-Hunger is a sign that ego mind is in control and we can send love and appreciation for those who do not yet know that they are of the Sonship of God, as Christ, His Son.
I have turned a curve in the upward spiral of my spiritual life.
I can no longer accept this existence as life.
Do not take your “role” too seriously. Let me explain:
From Workbook Lesson 204 of A Course In Miracles
“I am not a body. I am free.
For I am still as God created me.
1. (184) The Name of God is my inheritance.
²God’s Name reminds me that I am His Son, not slave to time, unbound by laws which rule the world of sick illusions, free in God, forever and forever one with Him.
³I am not a body. ⁴I am free.
⁵For I am still as God created me.”
There is no reality in my earthly existence of betrayal and abandonment. It is simply the life I chose from the Universal Plan that would allow me to have the kind of “torture” that would allow me (or force me) to know that this world is not real.
And it continues even after I have acknowledged the Atonement in my life and that the only thing that could possibly be is God and His Will.
Does it continue because it needs to serve as someone else’s torture or is it just my reminder to “only” look to God?
Does it matter which, or that I know? No! I will be grateful for the opportunity to experience “life” day by day and know that it all works together for our good and that one day it will all role up and disappear.
Will it change if I use the right positive thinking or manifestation tools? Maybe, IF it fits in the Universal Plan and maybe not, and either way it is OK because I am “not slave to time, (*and am) unbound by laws which rule the world of sick illusions”.
Will I understand or untangle the meaning of it all? Only if it will lead me to where I let go of this world’s nonsense and can still forgive the original error of belief in separation from God.
Could that be important? That I see just how ugly we can be to each other and how we believe falsehoods and make them real to ourselves to our harm and the harm of others?
YES, it could be that some with very stout hearts and great faith have agreed to “see” just how insidious the cancer of denying God in self and others is; so that they could forgive, in its most correct form, and stand as witnesses that this is not “real”.
Yes, I believe that maybe Jesus needs some who are willing to perform this role in the Universal Plan and still know that they are “free in God forever, and forever one with Him.”
Not everyone will have chosen that kind of life. Some may find the challenge of giving up the “beauty and abundance of the world of form” even more challenging and be estranged from God that much longer.
Whatever your experience in the world of form, it is important to remember:
³I am not a body. ⁴I am free.
⁵For I am still as God created me. 🙏💜💪🙏
We got this!
Would this not be the perfect time to align yourself with your authentic Divine Reality and recognize the significant part of the Sonship, that is Christ, whom you are.
I do not promise you “smooth sailing” but I promise peace and joy inside that no “illusion” in the world can offer or destroy.
Till next time, God bless, bye for now.
We need to get clarity on what we want and be it.
Our primary responsibility is to accept the Atonement that Jesus offers us in the undoing of the error of separation; which the Son of God believed briefly and released or had corrected.
This happens within your mind and heart and may or may not reflect what physical life expresses because this is not your “life”. It is a role you play in the Universal Plan that will allow the entire Sonship to return “willingly” to full communication with the Father/God.
Your individual gifts. Your talents and challenges are crucial to the workings of the Universal Plan in motion since the beginning of “time”.
Jesus claims that his role is unique only for a time. When the Son is restored to full communication with His Father, each of us will become aware that we have ALL that the Father has, and nothing is kept from any of us.
We will be free to utilize all that IS in any dynamic we can envision. The only real difference between then and now is that we will be aware that it is us choosing our experience, and it will not be something that will infringe on or oppress ourselves or anyone else.
Until then, may there be NO confusion that Jesus is the leader for the Atonement, and that we will each eventually acknowledge him as part of Christ, even as he testifies that we are each a part of Christ, the Son of God, as well.
Really, what happens is that you will not be able to avoid knowing the intimate details of another’s being.
Sending out forgiveness from my heart and altering thought patterns that I had been given through “Christian” teachings shows me that I do no one any favors by treating them as if they are not capable of altering their experience.
And, dear ones, this includes the babies. I know we think of them as the beginning, but that is a myth propagated by those who would use us as a farmer would a crop to keep us from the witness of who we truly are.
If saving a child were magically transformative, would God not allow it for all of His Children? Remember that the baby is a complete eternal being just as you are and made decisions to experience what it would be like to be without God. This in NO Way justifies harming anyone in any way!
This is not your life yet. You have life. You are an eternal being. But your eternal life does not begin until you release your future into the care of God, which wipes out the history you have so far experienced and leaves you with the present to express to the Universe what your desires may be.
You have agreed to come to live out the confusion of the Son AND to play a role in the Universal Plan for Atonement, the “undoing of the original error of belief in separation from God and all its consequences”.
God will not force anything on humanity. Likewise, once they are willing to receive, nothing can be held back from them.
As eternal beings, some of us have accepted our “assignment” that we may get our fill of frustration and suffering. We will be willing to accept what Jesus offers us by his example of accepting the Atonement.
The fact that others have agreed to accept rather moderate physical existences does not mean that they are not part of the Universal Plan of Atonement program because they offer the counter-scenario, which brings about the frustration as to why there is no balance in life and opportunity for all.
We accepted our role and may use it to continue the construct of separation from God or use it for acknowledging our communication with Him, singularly through the Holy Spirit and eventually with Him directly once the Whole Sonship accepts the Atonement.
In truth, humanity and existence are multi-dimensional. It is the addiction to time and fear of the past affecting the future that keeps our attention from the magnificence of what we are.
All-time is happening now.
Once Atonement takes place in your life, thousands of years of confusion and suffering are eliminated because you no longer need those lessons to learn who you are. This frees up many others who are required to help you gain those lessons as well. So there is no greater work that you could do on earth than accepting the Atonement.
The particular life role that I signed up for this time around had me accepting the Atonement without question as a little child through affirmative decisions that I made at four. I have not understood this until now at nearly sixty-five.
I can remember when I got the question posed to me to choose love or to choose anger and bitterness. I have struggled in life because I chose love but not nearly how I would have if I had chosen anger and bitterness.
I witnessed a lot of different home environments on a very intimate level. At sixty-five, I can see that I looked at these experiences and recorded what I saw from the eyes of a much older individual.
Jesus tells us that when one is healed, the whole is affected, and I believe this with all my heart. I know that humanity is on the curve to healing rapidly that has not been seen in its historical past.
Do not be discouraged because things do not flip in an instant. Rest assured that all is well and that the Whole Sonship will understand its divinity and gain eternal life where you will be acknowledged for your part in this great work.
God wants to bless us. We alone decide if that will occur or not. We alone decide if we stand as the Son of God or a crutch for someone else. We alone decide if we stand in our inheritance of all that the Father has or if we must crush another and make them subject to us to feel empowered.
In The Matrix, Neo discovered he was the one that would make all the difference. What if it takes just one, but that one has to be you? #inspiration #motivation #life #success #mindset #happiness #atonementnow
There is no other way!
The world of separation supports privacy to a fault!
Do not get me wrong! We all need our privacy or time to our own thoughts.
In the Atonement, we would allow that by virtue of respect for our own identity, which allows us to honor the other as God does.
Gathering time should be a place where we can share concerns of self and others under the umbrella of the Atonement.
The Atonement brings recognition that we are all one in God worthy of all that He IS as His Son.
This gathering should bring about greater joy for all, and none needs to be excluded because the challenges of humanity are not that diverse.
Meaning that they all fall under similar false perceptions relating to separation from God and one another.
What I am saying is we will see each other as God sees us.
We will see through each other’s shield of terror from the place of the Atonement and forgiveness.
We will see the struggles that come from belief in separation.
And not feel the need to join with them in that struggle.
We may help where we can but not join them, which is what we do today, especially in those organizations that suggest service and blind alliagence, like families and churches. Even the Ku Klux Klan does this.
If I cannot meet with others in freedom established through the Atonement, I do not wish to “gather or meet” with others.
Your PTSpD will not leave you, which basically means that you will see and feel the sorrow that would be a part of being separated from God IF that were possible.
Post Traumatic Separation Disorder
However, knowing there could never have been separation from God, you need not be scooped up into the drama any more than you desire or are inspired to by the Holy Spirit.
I have to admit that it can certainly feel like I must or should be dragged into it all sometimes, especially once you have children.
I have watched my children and my grandchildren be sucked into situations that I can do nothing about. And I cannot say that it does not hurt.
What I can say is that I know that these things are what was desired by them in their effort to “run away” from God just as mine were.
It blows my mind! And sometimes you just pick up one foot and then the other, one breath at a time, trusting that there is purpose in the nonsense!
I really do “get that!”
Remember, as you watch the horror film in front of you, that God IS, and nothing can change that, no matter what things may look like.
There is a Plan implemented and completed to fulfill the Atonement of the Son of God.
This is my backup.
This is the foundation I stand on.
I know that it is all right for me to experience joy and peace, even in a world of confusion.
And when the world steps in and tries to tell me otherwise, I look it square in the eye and say “NO” God is bigger than you, and I put my trust in Him.
Shove that cloak of guilt, shame, and embarrassment off of your shoulders.
We want to take on the world’s problems. I get it!
And in many cultures, we are taught to serve. Like the Son of God (of which you are a part) has need of anything other than realizing who He truly is!
The greatest service we can do is to know and honor the fact that we are children of God with the ability to forgive what could not have been done because God IS.
I did not try to imprison my children. I wanted them to have their freedom.
I did not understand that the world did not run on “freedom”.
It ran on bondage, and the children embraced that and seek to hold onto an existence that permits bondage in many forms.
Typically there is a demand that there be a “scapegoat” or focus “offering to the gods of sin” that say someone made the world bad, and now I can protect myself by shutting everything else out and pretending it is only me in the world. And those who follow along with my ideas of the world!
The world has shown us that “everyone” and “everything” has a price. Trust me, the children “out there” in the sex rings are not the only ones being “trafficked”!
I, who come from a place of forgiveness and joy, have no place with them because I mess up their convenient perception that there is an enemy “out there”.
It does not matter that certain people get thrown under the bus as long as there is an excuse for their gruffness and their lack of compassion.
You cannot escape this scenario with others! You must be willing to escape it on your own by changing the way you look at the world and yourself!
And I am not trying to sell you a way to find “true romance”! This is a solo gig!
Your knowledge and interaction with others are to be based on the testimony of God’s love for them.
This we do through the witness of forgiveness that the Atonement/”undoing of separation” provides.
We recognize that we are not our bodies. The most accurate description would be to say that we are our “minds” or at least that it is in our thoughts that we are united. Why? Because that is where we are in God!
We are in God’s thoughts and in His Will, which is the same as ours because we are of Him, but we run from that. And this creates the fearful rat race we find ourselves in.
This does not mean that we must be the ogar in someone else’s story.
Just because they decide to claim it is so.
You are not separate from God or others. If you bash others, you are bashing yourselves. If you lift others, you are lifting yourselves.
Bashing reflects our lack of focus on God.
We want to keep our eyes on Christ all around us.
That does not mean that you allow yourself to be a punching bag for others.
You show honor for others by treating yourself with respect and dignity.
Allow the Holy Spirit to take care of the future by releasing your hold on fear and allow Him to clean up the trauma and attachment that existed in the past.
This is a choice we need to make. It will not just happen automatically.
We chose the predicament that we find ourselves in as a species and all that is.
It is clear to me that the way to do this is to let go of so-called “relationships” that use you.
In ACIM, Jesus teaches that the only relationship we have or want is with God. All else is “actually” ourselves mirrored gazillions of times over.
The relationship with God is perfect in that He gives His all to you and requires only that you give your all to Him. It is a completely symbiotic relationship that holds nothing back.
Why would we desire bondage in place of freedom to be what we are?
Sadly, the ego-mind rational we have embraced leaves us believing that to be with God is to disappear when nothing could be further from the truth.
In God is the ONLY place our true identity is to be found, and it is possible to embrace that here and now.
And so what if that witness does not stay “sparkly” in front of us all the time? Once you really give yourself over to it, you will know that you can settle for nothing less.
You are of value to God, and joy is your inheritance.
Do not settle for less!
Till next time, God bless, bye for now.
Compassion or indulgence and disparity? We decide that now!
It is that offering we extend to the Christ within one another and recognize with gratitude the Creator.
When we come together, we want to do so in an attitude of the Atonement!
⁷Give me your blessing, holy Son of God. ⁸I would behold you with the eyes of Christ, and see my perfect sinlessness in you. (https://acim.org/acim/en/s/567#11:7-8 | W-161.11:7–8)
This is where all our encounters want to start. With the understanding that currently, we are living in an “ego state of mind” that has us separate from God and one another, on the defense, and attacking.
That’s just the facts of life at the moment.
Forgiveness of the original error of belief in separation from God and one another is our foundation.
That “witness”, which is of Christ, comes to us through the power and communication of the Holy Spirit.
Understanding this statement and recognizing the feeling or voice of the Holy Spirit is vital because it is He who will guide you thereafter.
The above passage does not suggest that you see no error in behavior or attitudes within the world but that you do not claim them as anything other than the mistaken error that they are.
The best defense is to be alert and aware of the ego-mind that is prevalent in the world so that the Holy Spirit may be your defense.
The Holy Spirit is aware of all that is going on with everyone and His guidance will lead you. Please, do not second guess those thoughts that say you are not safe. They are given to you for a reason. And it does not mean that you are “judging another person”, it means you respect who they believe they are at the moment. Remove yourself in love in your heart and go your way in peace.
We do not want to walk in a place a fear but with caution, and confidence in guidance from the Holy Spirit.
Our neighbor is our savior in that we need his place in the Atonement to be filled by him. His forgiveness of the original error, which covers all of my mistakes as well, is what makes us whole and complete. This is what will end time and unite us all as the Son of God, along with Jesus.
Please understand this does not mean that I believe the criminal element does not exist. It means that in having the Holy Spirit as our guide we will be more apt to see and acknowledge mental health issues before they become a threat to society.
And we will be willing to expose and talk about societal attitudes and accepted norms that do not promote equality, safety, and abundance for all.
Time is a dot in existence given to the Son of God to erase past pains and fear of the future!
Time is brought about by the error of belief in separation which created guilt and created a past from which we move into the future often ignoring the present.
When we heal the present by removing the guilt and shame of the past we take away the fear of the future and are able to live in now.
Death will hold no fear either. Death is only a thought that separates us from God, be it expressed in language, harm to self or another, illness, or death itself. There is no death because God lives and you are a part of God through His Son.
And there is no separation so while physical bodies may need to separate for any number of reasons our true state of thought cannot, in body or out.
Is it not better for humanity and all of creation to focus on how to unite our thought system under one umbrella of freedom for all? This is what Jesus is offering us within the Atonement.
No one can be forced to accept healing!
It is important to understand that to the human soul healing is frightening.
We have ourselves convinced that we are lost and would rather settle for a false reality than meet God where He is within each of us.
The Universal Plan is a script that has already been written. Jesus and other celestial beings are in charge of it.
It is a plan that is like a script for a play, it has been written out but it is in the rehearsal stage.
Characters can still be moved around a bit by choices they make and the length of the play has yet to be determined.
Jesus has told us that accepting the Atonement will shrink the need of time, which to me means suffering, by thousands of years.
That means that we can let go of the ownership of our role. Let the Holy Spirit take you where it will. Do not be encumbered by your present situation. (Encumbered: restrict or burden (someone or something) in such a way that free action or movement is difficult.)
If it is not what you would like it to be visualize what your ideal situation would be and feel it, sense it witness it, and give up how it is to come to pass, and trust that it will. In a time and a way you could not dream of but that will be so much greater than you envisioned you will be in awe.
Remember, we have a role to play, but it truly is only a role, you are safe in the mind and will of God.
It is important to remember that we are whole and complete right now as a part of Christ and give up the idea that things happen to us without our willing it to be so. Then take a conscious and active part in what you do want to come your way.
Atonement is an experience we all will eventually partake in but the timing of it is up to us individually.
That means that in the moment people will play out roles in the script and not all will be mellow and civilized.
It is because of this “current reality” that we have to keep ourselves awake at all times to attacks that humanity imposes on itself.
I think of the 2018 thriller “Bird Box” with Sandra Bullock. I won’t give it away but we do live in an environment where we are suicidal. We seek death. And it is the Holy Spirit within ourselves that has the ability to guide us safely out of that thinking and into our true home.
Think of what we are creating for our future.
Till next time, God bless, bye for now.
Change is for physical enjoyment and not required for peace of mind.
This weeks reading:
Illness affects us when we close our minds to the Christ that we are.
Unitedly we make up the Sonship.
Only the Atonement frees us from our horrific illusion of being separate.
We allow a lot in our society in the name of gathering.
I would like to think that Covid19 gave us time to realize we have value with or without a group.
Your knowledge of others is to be based on testifying of God’s awareness and trust in them.
You know of this because by accepting the Atonement for yourself you see it in them.
You do this not by being vulnerable to their confusion, but by having healthy boundaries for yourself.
We all suffer from PTSpD/Post Traumatic Separation Disorder. The remedy is the Holy Instant found within the Atonement.
The Holy Instant acknowledges that God is over all things and that we are all in His care.
Asking for His assistance and guidance when interacting with others for the highest good I find critical.
The Atonement is that awareness and complete forgiveness of the mistaken belief of separation from God and one another.
And a willingness to heed the promptings of the Holy Spirit.
You have assistance from Holy Spirit and Nature, as well.
Nature teaches us a lot about endurance.
Trees are some of my best friends here.
To be willing to seek what appears to be outside ourselves, meaning the Holy Spirit, can give us courage and inspiration, not to mention warnings as we go through life.
It takes really nothing more than the sincere desire to hear.
And then the faith to trust what you have heard, baby steps are fine.
The first two cards were “Prepare for an Event”. The third was “Completion or End”. The fourth and final card was “Falling Into Place”.
Do you see the “preparation” that we are being asked to make as we head into the “happy dream” that awaits us beyond this “nightmare” of confusion and illusion?
We need to “see” Christ in ourselves and in others!
What is coming to an end?
The suffering we have accepted as “normal” and “irrefutable” must be laid down through Forgiveness as specified within the Atonement that acknowledges our oneness as Christ and our place in the Mind and Will of God.
What is falling into place?
Our witness that we are taken care of! That there are angels and guides, along with the Holy Spirit and Nature that will supply our needs and give us reason to rejoice and declare God Is with gratitude and jubilation!
Till next time, God bless, bye for now.
