You have an identity and you have relationships; they just may not be what you “see” today.
What do I mean by that? I mean that ARE because God declared it so but the role you play here may have very little to do with who you really are.
Life is NOT what we have been led to believe that it is!
In this reading, we look at what we are and how to realize it.
Post Traumatic “Separation” Disorder is like a mist that follows us in the physical world of form.
First off we think of ourselves as adults and children and this is not true.
We are fully grown eternal beings, IE Children of God.
And while the confusion and suffering we see all around us is an illusion because we feel separated from God, you are not. Maybe you do not think that you have no validity but there are many who do (A Course In Miracles has been taught that way to many high academic personalities and by many popular personalities for forty-five years.) and I believe it is a misunderstanding and stops us from progressing and allowing Christ to be revealed.
It is the nightmare of the Son of God (Christ) that we are playing out and which we have been endowed by God, in Christ, with the ability to bring to an end.
Even in our sweetest scenarios on earth, we do not experience the full power of the love that God wishes to share with His Son.
That makes you a SUPERHERO because you are saving the Son of God as a part of the Son Himself. (I capitalize Himself to identify that Higher Self within each of us that is a part of the Sonship and vital to the recognition of Christ among us.)
The wonderful thing about doing something for God is that He gives more than you offer Him. In this case, He gives you validation in YOUR Eternal Life when you restore His Son to your awareness.
I am a student of A Course In Miracles. On second thought, I am a follower of Jesus and I study all of His works and teachings. I find that I align with none of the current religions or ideologies that I have come across, including those among the most open ACIM students because they will often take the metaphysical stance alone and declare we are dream material only.
You will become “different from the pack”, but it is the course of all of us eventually because this is not our reality.
I believe that we are caught in a dream state but that, as the Course states, we are very much a part of creation and simply need to allow ourselves to recall what IS. Which is primarily God, and that we are unitedly His Son which you might say is “an extension of Himself while being within Himself”. Hence:
We have to let go of the overwhelming expectations and ambivalence that we have of one another and see ourselves as the ambassadors that we are!
We must see ourselves as guards with the keys to unlock the chains that hold the Son of God trapped and unaware of His potential and power in the Father.
Post Traumatic “Separation” Disorder cannot overwhelm when the beacon of the Atonement glows.
As we come into a recognition of who we are we will need to understand the safety of the Atonement and that this is where our freedom, protection, and sanity lie. It is really the only place it is.
Atonement is recognizing that God and His Son have never separated because it is not God’s will. It acknowledges that you are part of the Sonship, as is everything else. It also forgives what could never have occurred which is all the nonsense that comes with the belief in separation.
We are in the Father who IS all that is. I mean this metaphorically, figuratively, realistically, and every other way possible. Period.
Bottom line. Just because we do not remember it does not make it false.
Because you are of God what you believe will be presented to you. Why not take a chance and open the door to the possibility that God IS.
His Holy Spirit will rush in and help you to find that which was hidden when you embraced the belief in suffering, punishment, and death. Don’t be afraid, these are not sins they are the consequence of believing in separation from God. It is a self-induced delusion, that feels very real.
The peace and joy found in the Atonement give you the courage to meet what comes one step at a time knowing you are not alone and all is well.
You are of God and in God, worthy of all that is. Innocent as a child and capable of making mistakes.
Do not fear.
Your Father is not a vengeful God.
He takes no delight in seeing His children struggle or fall.
Jesus teaches us that our only function is forgiveness which is salvation. (ACIM)
God will gently and lovingly encourage you, support you, and lift you up to success; rejoicing, not in the goal because that has always been, rather in the warmth of His affection and gratitude, which you return in abundance.
There is no experience in the flesh that can compete with the witness of His Love. In fact, it is so alluring, tantalizing, and consuming that we will need time to acclimate our psyche’s to be able to embrace it completely.
Before that will happen we must wake up to the fact that we desire His presence and are nothing without it.
We have convinced ourselves that we are undeserving and continue this cycle of anger and depression that we do not have to accept and only we can stop.
All “TIME” is truly occurring right now so what we do at this moment has the power to change the future and the past.
It was “understanding” this concept that allowed me to imagine how the redemption spoken of in the Bible could occur.
Most scenarios being played out are but the frantic thoughts of separation. Not only on this planet but in multiverses and dimensions without number.
We are not left without God’s influence. And by listening to the Holy Spirit within our hearts and minds we can be guided home and out of the confusion.
We appear to be addicted to suffering, intent on envisioning an existence without God, so much so that it seems we will not consider a place where we have no lack and nothing can harm us. It is a matter of deciding that this is true for ourselves.
When will we embrace the idea that our suffering comes from within because no one can give the Son of God what He does not allow? And I am talking about the higher consciousness that we can reach if we attempt it when we have not accepted the blinders like we have in childhood and infancy.
In the world of illusions, we use people’s situations and emotions to enhance our own lives and comfort.
In the Atonement, we see others as ourselves, sovereign Children of God directed by the Holy Spirit toward a better life for all of us.
Within the illusion, we fabricate stories, especially in families and small communities, but also in the world at large so that we can feel good about ourselves. This creates a foundation of distrust that corrupts our societies at a fundamental level.
A troubled family of origin is a place that you chose to appear to ASSIST those within that environment as well as to grow your own spiritual understanding. I say this because I know behind all the confusion of the Son of God is a loving Father that has faith in you.
Remember you are not an infant. You are not invalid, not even when in infant form. You accepted that role for a reason and did so willingly. You were and always have been a fully empowered Child of God.
The Atonement must be done on an individual basis.
Its purpose is to align you with God’s Voice in the Holy Spirit to return you to your correct state of mind which is completely in God and aligned with His Will.
Our ego’s see this as threat and bondage, instead of freedom and our true identity. We need each other’s witness, often called light, to have the courage to do this.
Jesus, as our elder brother, has taken the first step which is why we can follow him in the Atonement but as a “part of Christ” Jesus will not be at home with the Father until we all are.
Once Christ knows Himself fully again the Holy Spirit will no longer be needed since He/We will be fully within the Father.
Because we are all a part of the Sonship, we will need the Holy Spirit until all have come to the Atonement.
We all stand in grace as little children before our Heavenly Father.
This is so very key to how we change the paradigm that humanity currently has.
Within this construct, the Holy Spirit can be heard.
We are all equally valuable and vital to paving the way back to sanity.
With this understanding, I know in my heart that my union with the Father and eternal life is untouchable except by my own denial.
And it is so with yours.
This is my witness, in the name of Jesus Christ, that name that Jesus in A Course In Miracles Urtext says belongs not to Jesus of Nazareth but is encompassing of all concepts and forms of diety and god within the Sonship consciousness. Amen.
Humanity will use whatever means it can to feed off of itself.
If this is what the Consciousness of Humanity needs to happen to understand that healing and oneness are found one person and heart at a time and not by forced “unity” in form, then so be it. Christ awareness is coming, and if we must go through trauma to experience it, then we must.
We keep taking the words of Jesus and twisting them to our convenience, and there will be suffering from that. Each one thinks they have the right answer and are doing the right thing (I will not dispute that there are a few that have abusive and destructive intentions.), but the majority think they are “right.”
Only the atonement and the truth found there will give humanity peace and protection as Christ is restored fully to the presence of His Father.
I know this may appear to have no relevance, but I assure you that it does.
I believe that humanity is reaching its final ability to stomach suffering to finally look at what Jesus has been offering us in the atonement.
We can put the human consciousness into the healing curve that it must recognize by acknowledging the Father and the Son and release the idea of lack anywhere because the Father would not have His Son live like that.
To do this, forgiveness for the error of separation from God and ALL THE consequences of that thought must be accepted one individual at a time.
This is the atonement; the undoing of the mistake of the Son and acceptance of the Father’s Love and abundant blessing.
God’s Will will not be altered.
His patience is long but the suffering we put upon ourselves must be understood to be our own doing and not forced upon us or from the Father for any “wrongdoing”.
The United States needs to be allowed to stand as an individual nation, at least for a time, to show (bear witness to the world) that one must choose, for oneself, salvation and not demand it from another nation or another individual.
One must look after oneself and know that God will grant what you need to be fulfilled.
This is my witness about the United States, and I stand behind the policies that President Trump put forth and desires to see fulfilled.
We are all learning here. But understand that the “learning” is to bring us into remembrance of who we are as THE SON OF GOD. United and embraced fully within and by God, the Father.
There is a Universal Plan, and you have a role in it that you volunteered for. Be the “superheroes” you signed up to be.
Do not get hung up on what you see in your life as yourself.
Your job, your height, hair color, economic status, family relationships, love-life, none of these things define who you are and they in no way reflect your worth.
You are not your emotions, your thoughts, or your addictions and habits.
Neither is anyone else.
That does not mean be PO’ed at the makers of the Universal Plan. It has a purpose that we do not “get,” and that is ok. It is going to work out all right.
And guess who wins? God does! Yup!
So really, all you want to do is forgive the Original Error that made the Universal Plan necessary and knows that nothing real can be threatened.
You have a unique and vital voice to the Universal Plan and in the Kingdom of Heaven.
I am not talking about religion here. I am speaking physics or eternal truths.
Tip: Use the demographics of your role in the Universal Plan to share your unique perspective on Truth. It may be unchanging, but that does not mean that it is not multi-faceted, and we need your perspective to see it more clearly.
Do not under-estimate your position as one who forgives the original error because no one else can do that in your place.
God will not force anything on us. Nor will He allow anything to come upon us that we have not agreed to.
OUCH! With all the innocents that face horrible circumstances, how could that be?
Because we do not come here as babies, we come as full-grown spirits who forget that part of ourselves as we learn to navigate in this world with our bodies and circumstance.
Remember that Universal Plan we agreed to? We reviewed that with others and agreed to walk through certain situations before we came as infants.
We have guides, guardians, angels, etc., in the flesh and unseen, which help us incorporate those things that we meant to be experienced here.
PLEASE REMEMBER THIS: Once we accept who we are nothing will stand in the way of the blessings that God wants to pour out on us. We are created that we might have joy, and peace is our natural state of being.
One of the three temptations of humanity.
From the Atonement position, it can bark at you, and it might even scratch the skin, but it cannot harm you because you know the truth that this existence is not real and that nothing real can be threatened.
Depression comes from fear of lack. And how could the Son of God lack anything? That is who you are. You are on a temporary mission and do not think it is done after this life because even the spirit world is part of the illusion.
I do not know how many lives we will need to have here or how long this will last, but I know that we can open the door to assistance from beyond the veil by acknowledging our place in the Sonship.
I cannot say that you will never sob your heart out for the confusion and challenges of this life, but I can assure you that you will find a foundation to stand on to restore your hope which is the peace and joy that comes from knowing this is not real.
Forgiveness releases all. God alone unifies.
We have tried all kinds of ways to connect except God’s way.
There is no other way. The ATONEMENT acknowledges Christ. It is actually the SECOND COMING. In that, it acknowledges that all that is within creation is a part of Christ.
And what is Atonement? It is the undoing of the Original Error of belief in the separation from God or the belief that the Son could offend the Father. The Son could do nothing that could stop the Father’s Love, and when He is done beating himself up, He will see that. This is what we gain when we forgive.
Things that seem to have come from the Son being separated from the Love, Protection, and Abundance of the Father could not have happened.
All this trauma is not ours to embrace. It is not our heritage. Forgiveness is how we restore our memory to who we are.
Our thoughts are where we understand that we are ONE ENTITY in God.
This is how we see others as ourselves. It is the only way that connection within human existence will be recognized or understood.
United we are part of THE CHRIST. (Remember the fullness of Christ is all of creation.)
PTSD is due to separation.
Post Traumatic “Separation” Disorder embodies all of the challenges and hardships that come from the belief that the Son of God could have lack or could be attacked.
The Atonement is the only remedy for this.
Jesus would have experienced the concept of forgiveness in his life as he had to forgive Judas.
As firstborn in spirit, he would have been the first to partake in error and the first to receive the Atonement.
This is what gives him the right to stand as an example and leader.
His memory of being in God’s presence is what allowed Jesus to accept the atonement first, and since we do not have the recall that he does, we must have faith in his witness of God, which comes from him and the Holy Spirit within us.
I do not believe that Jesus had fear in his walk on earth because he recalled being in the presence of God. He did not have faith as we must have, Jesus had knowledge. This is part of why it will take another (I believe a female) to be willing to “see” what we really “think we are” IN THE FACE OF FEAR and accept the witness of the Holy Spirit that declares the truth. She will forgive Jesus, as well, by allowing him to direct the energy of miracles as he sees fit.
This will close the gap created by the “fall” and the “illusion of separation” and begin the ending of time which consists of fear of reprecussion from the past and punishment in the future. Experiences will be ours but they will be delighted in and relished in the NOW, the PRESENT MOMENT.
To engage only in the NOW, in the present that we are in, is to negate the recognition of FORGIVENESS and the ACKNOWLEDGMENT of GOD, the Creator and Father of us all. Who gives the Son all that He IS so that the Father may delight in His Son.
To skip this step is to deny our very essence. No one can take who we are away from us but we can close our minds, eyes, and ears to the truth.
PTSD, Post Traumatic “Separation” Disorder, comes from believing that this life has real validity in what it shows us through our apparent separateness.
If it were possible to be separate from God, it would bring sorrow and emptiness.
Emptiness is the correct term because it is an impossibility.
After all, only God IS, and God IS in all.
The Atonement is our primary responsibility here.
This includes knowing God IS and encompasses ALL THAT IS, which means we are ONE within God.
As well as forgiving the original error of belief that separation from God is possible along with all the consequences that have come from that belief.
In other words, we need to believe our hearts and the Holy Spirit’s witness and not our eyes and ears that give us our current view of the world.
We want to see the world as the Holy Spirit does.
Use your “costume in the illusion” to bear witness of the Atonement by whatever means are available to you.
You are always a teacher. Your witness shows the way for others.
You are in the exact place that you need to be to do your part in the Universal Plan and the healing of the world.
Compassion needs to be the lens through which we see.
Once we have the “sight” of the Atonement for ourselves we can hold that for others and bear witness of their value and worthiness in God and a part of the Sonship.
I study NDE’s and it occurred to me the other day that they come back with a witness that we are not judged by anyone other than ourselves. And I would agree to this concept.
What can happen though, is that we lose our compassion for others. It may justify any amount of wrong doing, adultery, even murder or rape. Not to mention more “justifyable” indescretions.
It is really important in the walk of the spiritual person to see the “big picture” and not just an individual part of the truth.
It is too easy for a single part to warp itself and hide the full embodiment of our relationship to God, ourselves, and to one another.
Allowing the Holy Ghost to take care of the future by releasing your hold on fear allows Him to clean up the attachment and trauma in the past.
This is the way to escape the PTSD that the ego attempts to put upon the world.
The “true forgiveness” you bring to this moment allows the past to be healed and altered in a way that serves all of us.
YOU make a difference and NO ONE ELSE can take your place.
Till next time, God bless, bye for now!
*I use six decades of living with a curious mind, three decades as an adult in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, knowing Jesus since I was four, and my current study of ACIM Urtext to bear my testimony this day.
Humans have the ability to create a new paradigm on the meaning of life.
There is no permanence in what we call death. It is “a trip” behind the curtain for a costume change. Whether it is back to earth to understand or teach what was not clear or to assist in other realms or dimensions
There is a foundational understanding that can free humanity. And it is found in the Atonement (undoing of the error) that Jesus has taught us in various forms for eons.
Each one of us is a god in embryo. It is the source and “material” of which we are made.
Individually and collectively we are capable of creating a world full of abundance and delight such as our imaginations today cannot even begin to dream of.
It is already a part of who and what we are.
We need to let go of the fear of our own power, our sense of unworthiness, and the dream of destruction.
The power of the ego, the body, or even of money and privilege has no comparison to the power of a Child of God who knows who they are and that they are looked after and “backed-up” by the Father.
The following are two universal readings I did. It has been my practice for several years to share my witness as fully as I understand it today for today may be all I have before I am called to “another assignment.” I do not seek to “assist society where it is”; rather, I seek to show society what truly IS to the best of my ability.
I have come to recognize this as my witness of what Jesus means when he says that the Holy Spirit teaches us “To HAVE, GIVE all To all”. (page Urtext of ACIM 610 pg. pdf)
The “body” is not your identity.
When you believe it is, it becomes an idol that attempts to replace God.
We want to think “God First” then take care of the body as a “communication instrument”.
Our most authentic self is found within the inner voice that guides us in this world of form. The Holy Spirit is a combination of that Higher Self and the Father.
It is the part of ourselves who has the “knowing” and who will lead us home once we are psychologically willing to return there.
This is not something that can or will be forced on us.
It simply awaits our willingness and recognition.
If one is unwilling to recognize the soul of another, or the self, illness of the mind, then of the body, and eventually society WILL manifest.
In doing this,, we deny the “heaven” that IS Our Heritage.
One has only to look around to see this is true. And history is the record of that neglect and denial.
The only way that time (meaning history), in other words, Christ’s story of confusion and its consequential terror, will be brought to a halt is for humanity to stop accepting the “fear-mongering ego” and look to the divinity within themselves and one another in our true form as Christ, God’s Son.
The Atonement was established before Time began because it is Grace IE the Presence of the Father’s Love for His Son.
It will not be forced on anyone. It must be received willingly.
It is something that each of us will surrender to in our own due time because it is our truth.
This may happen for many, only when suffering and pain leave them no other choice. That is “OKAY “ because the pain, suffering, and sting of all things terrible loses its grip in the presence of truth.
It is not beyond my imagination to consider that it would take many lifetimes for the human soul to be willing to turn and look within itself to see who and what they indeed are.
The ego will lead them on a “wild goose chase,” but eventually, each one will come to know and accept who they are as part of the Son of God.
You have assistance in the Holy Spirit or Inner Voice within you.
The Holy Spirit will be able to serve humanity greater, in my opinion, once they get over the “illusion” and belief in death as this will free us of many fears.
Primarily, the idea that “with the shedding of the body life ends”. When in reality the very witness of the body is that one has denied their own existence, indeed their own “life” which can only be in God because only God IS. THIS is why Jesus teaches we must be “born again”.
I believe that our “truth” is closer to spirit, and truth be told, I do not believe that spirit is our true “essence” for lack of a better word.
Because “we” have the same “form” as God “whatever that may be” and since it was the fearful-mind manifested ego that brought this world and the spirit world into being our true form may be something completely unrecognizable to the human mind at this time.
(Jesus tends to the preexistence and the afterlife. While it is a higher manifestation of our consciousness than we have on earth, it is still not in the full presence of God. Jesus is the only one of us who remembers that existence. This is why we follow him. No one returns to God without the whole body of Christ.)
Remember, as Christ’s creation began, the Father’s presence was dis-acknowledged in the belief of separation from God so what we are experiencing as love is still far less than what Father and we truly are.
We do not have to worry about this transition for many generations, from what I understand, and when we do step into our true form we will have been prepared for it and will be assisted by God, Himself.
This having been said, it is important to acknowledge those who exist primarily in “spirit form” because they are a significant part of the “human” consciousness part of Christ. They can assist us and desire to do so, but we must be ready to receive their input.
We are One Entity, and there is nothing that divides us, while embodied or without our bodies, except our own imaginations.
Children come into the world still remembering what occurred before this life. We soon “throw it away” because our societies are intolerant of accepting a truth that cannot be seen or proven with some scientific test.
What is so confusing to me about that statement is that a “scientific” test can be manipulated by the “belief” and “belief itself” is something that we cannot see.
That is not to say that we should be hard on ourselves.
It is just that we are putting so much effort into things that would be “understood’ if we would allow a place for our “divine spirituality” to be recognized within the framework of our consciousness, individually and collectively.
What I am being prompted to share here is that not only is the Holy Spirit waiting for us to acknowledge Him and help us assist in the work that Jesus leads of restoring Christ to His awareness of His origin but that unitedly all consciousness desires to create in a “collective” fashion. This is the way that the Father organized His Son’s existence/foundation/course.
Only our confused mind(s) believe(s) that anything else is possible. One part of Christ creates something over here and another part of Christ creating something over there. Much less, multiplying that by gazillions of supposedly individual components that make up Christ such as, oh, galaxies or individual life forms on this planet, or another.
The Holy Spirit must work with the “individual” at the moment because it is inside the mind of the individual that yielding to the Atonement and acknowledgment of itself as part of the Sonship of Christ will occur.
Christ, however, as a Whole, was meant to function as ONE entity or unit in its true status in God. This is why our “will” is ultimately the same as God’s.
It is not the “slavation” that Bill Thetford wrote from his inner self in the notes of A Course In Miracles. Acknowledging God’s will as our own is our salvation because it is who we truly are. And God wanted a Son to experience creation and creativity so boring is not a concept I would put with being in God’s presence either.
Repeated here was the acknowledgment that the Atonement is the foundation of a new paradigm of cooperative cohabitation of the planet Earth. Not to be thrust upon anyone but to be met with the desire of a willing and grateful bride.
The Atonement establishes equality among all humanity.
The Atonement acknowledges a Creator that gives sanction to the creativity of His Creations.
Before we can function as a “united Christ” we must be willing to function as “individual parts of Christ” in the undoing of the belief in the possibility of separation from God.
We will not be alone in this. We will be guided and have many assistants.
In fact, within the Atonement we have a witness of our “completeness”; our connection with one another and in God. Many of us are closer to this than we realize.
The Atonement acknowledges our union as the full embodiment of the Son of God with all creation in all of its various forms, dimensions, and experiences.
Only this paradigm will allow all humanity to bless itself, the earth, and “all that is” freely, completely, abundantly, and most importantly, compassionately.
This reminds me of faith, hope, and charity—the greatest of these being charity, which has generally been accepted as the pure love of Christ.
I would extend its meaning to encompass “equality” with the understanding that ALL are worthy of the blessings that the Father would bestow upon His Son.
You are not separate from, say, Jesus or Mohammed or Confucius. Or from ANYONE else. And, if you bash them, you bash yourself. If you lift others, you lift yourselves. When you give, you receive.
Letting go of the idea of death will do a lot to help humanity accept this truth.
One cannot live in a state of fear that death brings about and expect to find joy. Primarily because you are in a lose/lose situation.
Truth is, you are an eternal being, and you will have lasting relationships that will ebb and flow and be many, many things, and it will ALL bring you JOY from within the Atonement.
Nothing can separate us from that which brings us joy, except our desire to feel unworthy or somehow lacking, and both are an impossibility because you are a divine creation and your creator establishes your worth.
This has nothing to do with “religion” and everything to do with what you are, who created you, and the freedom that comes with that reality.
Everything is really happening now. All lives, stories, deeds, everything encompassing His Story (history) is happening now and any action releasing the impact of His Story, IE Forgiveness, affects the past and how it is viewed and the future as well.
The decision capacity however lies “squarely” in the NOW.
If you stop to think about it, this is not as far-fetched and outlandish as it sounds.
When “true forgiveness” has been applied, everything receives a quick coat of “whitewash,” meaning that its intensity and impact have been all but removed.
“True forgiveness,” of course, means that we recognize that there is no way that God would have allowed His Son to endure any part of the trauma, terror, sadness, or disappointment that this world is made up of.
God is all things good! You do not have to suffer to “know” freedom from suffering. Knowledge has no requirements or prerequisites. You know because that is what God is, and you are of Him.
Our final reflection is on Depression.
The three temptations that face humanity (Addiction, Depression, and Power-Hunger) are given to us in the story of the temptations of Jesus Christ in the Bible (Matthew 4) as I share in my fictional NDE story published in 2019.
Depression is when we do not believe God has our backs. “I thou be the So of God, cast thyself down: for it is written , He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash they foot against a stone.” To which Jesus answered, “it is written, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord, thy God.”
The antagonist was trying to get Jesus to “prove” he was taken care of by God, thus displaying doubt in that truth by the act of “proving” it.
Note also the “It is written”, I tell you that there is power in written testimony.
What is depression if not the belief that one has been abandoned and is without resources and assistance?
Only God IS. It would be an impossibility for Him to abandon that which is a part of Himself which the Son is.
Pretty cool, huh?
Do not think that I do not suffer from post-traumatic “separation” disorder, because I do, occasionally, though I retain the witness that the separation did not occur.
You see, I am not my emotions though I do understand they must be acknowledged and allowed to be felt so they can pass through me in this place of illusion.
I observe them and sometimes I sob, not only for the sadness I think I see, but for the idea that a Child of God could believe such a thing when Father waits to give him all that He has.
Often I will as Mother Earth to transmute them into positive energies.
The Atonement which is to be experienced Now holds all that you need to meet any situation that this world could ask you to endure.
Within it is the assurance of God’s confidence in you and in all that makeup His Son.
The Atonement aligns you with inspiration by connecting you with the Father and the rest of Christ.
These reflections have been profound for me. They are things that I must testify of that my witness of them and greater understanding may grow within me.
Till next time, God bless, bye for now.
And I believe I am His Child.
I am glad to have this witness within me.
A “living knowledge” that I am a part of the Great I Am.
My idea of what exactly that means has evolved over a lifetime but whatever it “looks like” I know there is a Creator, and a Son (gender not required).
And that this is the one relationship that is vital to our existence individually and collectively.
This is a reflection from Mama’s Christmas Carol that gives structure to my life at this time. I do a Universal Christ reading regularly to see what Spirit would have us reflect on with a prayer that it may serve somewhere according to Father’s Will with the guidance of the Holy Spirit. I give its message into the hands of Jesus to share it with those who are ready to hear if it will assist.
Be thankful that PTSD will not leave.
Post-traumatic stress disorder just might be one of our best friends, at least within Time.
Because it keeps us mindful that there “Has got to be a better way!”
*Disclaimer: I am still researching this man’s story and life’s work. I suspect there is much more to it than what has been revealed. I do not “see” the Course In Miracles the same way others do and I hold that right. What I share here is according to my understanding at this time.
A man who had been instrumental in the work that would allow the bomb to be dropped on Japan (he did not know the significance of his work until after the event) said these words about 20 years later in his work as a professor of psychology. He was William (Bill) Thetford, an assistant to bringing forth A Course In Miracles.
How we were engaging with one another was a huge focus for Bill. Isolation had plagued him as a child so he had time to develop an inner life and confidence in an inner guidance system which he utilized throughout his life. Whether he fully met the potential of this, even with his great accomplishments, is something that I question.
It was being one of the assistants to A Course In Miracles that gave Bill Thetford his opportunity to manifest the peace he so longed to see in the world. His energies were taken up with forgiving those immediately around him and it required a lot of his attention.
It occurs to me that PTSD might be changed to Post-Traumatic “Separation” Disorder. Because that is what we are really dealing with. The consequences of belief in the idea that the Son could separate from the Father.
Of course, for that to occur in the flesh it certainly made sense that the Son of God would need to divide Himself and make space for a female to continue the Manifestation of the Error. No wonder “she” ranks lower in the fearful ego-mind.
Thus Time and Space came into being, temporarily. To allow the Son to remember who He is and Whose He IS. Because He never left God nor was ever forsaken by Him.
PTSD will not be removed while we are in Time but it can be forgiven and seen as the cause of the mental illness that plagues humanity. As such it may be the impetus to finding resolution to the mental illness as well.
The Holy Spirit will use this PTSD to your advantage if you will allow Him to gently lead you back to your “senses”. Back to your place within God.
And let it be noted that Post-Traumatic Separation Disorder does not exist within the Atonement. Eternity and heaven await you and can be lived while you are here on the earth as your light will lift others to remember their place in the Kingdom of God as well.
The first error is the belief in the ability of the Son of God to Separate from the Father. This needs to be kept foremost in mind.
It is not only the “first” error. It is truly the “only error” and, in my opinion, the only one that needs to be corrected or “forgiven”.
After that is done the ride is “fairly” easy. Despair and fear no longer have a hold on you.
Oh, you might be frustrated. You might be very sad over choices that you or others make at any given time. But forgiving the error of separation eliminates the attachment to this world as it presents itself at the moment.
You cannot lose what is not real and what is not real cannot truly harm you.
Do you want to know where the error of separation gives me the most grief?
It is in relationship to my family.
I can easily be “business-like” with everyone else. Western society has taught me this with the fundamentals of “polite society”. It has been more difficult to see my children and grandchildren in an “associate” identity.
As my grandchildren are becoming adults I am realizing, that I would be wise to treat them like I would a stranger. Pleasant, courteous, kind, but separate.
Now, wait a minute, didn’t I just say that separation is a false narrative.
And how can I do this to my own KIN?
The consensus is still that God’s Love and blessing come from obedience and not from inheritance. My beloved grandchildren were raised to face a world that believes in lack and separation from God. I must acknowledge this and then hold them in the place of love and forgiveness within my heart otherwise I leave them without my witness of their innocence. I cannot take them from the world and into the Atonement, they must do this for themselves.
To think I am able to do otherwise is to leave myself and them hurting. And this is not of God.
Between God, the Father, and His Son there is no separation but with those trained in constructs of the world, and while we are here, there is separation and we do ourselves no courtesy to deny this.
Those who manifest here are either victims of the original error or are on an errand to correct it, and to do so, they also are affected by the original error.
Our society is currently set up to support this opposite: That bodies can be connected and united but that “minds” and “souls” cannot.
We do have the ability to turn this around. We simply need to see the need for it by recognizing the original error.
Stop trying to get “togetherness” and “connection” through making “peace” with the body or bodies and instead, connect through the heart-mind witness of the Atonement with God which will draw others to do likewise until we are all of ONE MIND.
Seeing other’s errors and forgiving them will heal them and ourselves.
Having forgiven the original error of the belief that the Son could separate from the Father is sufficient to unleash the miracle that Jesus speaks of that is in each of our subconscious.
This miracle he would like us to give permission to him to utilize in undoing the need for time.
So many want to control the directives of their miracle capacities.
They want to use them to achieve “their” goals.
When all they really need to do is “feel” what they want to “feel” from any manifested goals they believe they desire on earth and allow Jesus to orchestrate the universal energy to bring that to pass.
You do not want to tell him what kind of car you want but how you would feel if you had that car and what it would allow you to do or access if you had it.
As a Son of God, you have that power within you, by inheritance, and have but forgotten. Jesus remembers for you an unlocks that which will fulfill your greatest and deepest desire. If you will allow him to do so.
This cannot be manifest though if you would begrudge anyone else the same blessings. This is why forgiveness is a requirement for personal fulfillment.
It is in Grace that you (and your brothers) stand as a recipient of the Atonement.
In grace, as in the reflection of the image God had of you as He created you, as The Son, and all thoughts that proceeded forth from the Son without number or definition are ALL perfect, pure, and innocent. Even though they may not be perfectly “real” as yet because of the fearful ego-mindedness that created them. *With the Atonement they are made sure and whole.
This is your inheritance. This is your “being” as ordained by God before the foundation of Time.
This is what God made of you and only what HE has made is valid.
You may not be able to “fix” them but you can “believe in them”.
And the best position to “believe in them” from is from the state of atonement. Here you acknowledge the error of Christ in believing that He could separate from the Father and then you forgive EVERYTHING that has “seemed” to have happened because of the ERROR.
That means also that you “see” Christ in everything and in EVERYONE.
The Universal Plan is completed. From the Beginning to the End.
You just need to accept your part in it by accepting the Atonement and then you can move out of it and into eternity.
No force is allowed here! No one will be manipulated into accepting the atonement! It must be received willingly!
Ironically, all you really need to do is to desire that this be so and the Holy Spirit will take you the rest of the way.
UNLESS you INSIST on doubting your own essence. Which, is what created the false-identity or reality, in the first place.
His Story is not your story. You are living Christ’s nightmare of confusion. Which has already ended.
The premonitions that we get are memories of what has already occurred and we just have not let go of it yet.
There are many ways that life will show us this is true if we give it a chance.
No one has enough information EVER within this existence to be held accountable for what occurs here or for even being responsible for what occurs here. It is about time we look around and see the truth to that.
It is time for Alice to “wake-up” from Wonderland!
Gossip versus Concern
Illusion = we “use” people’s situations and emotions to enhance and/or explain our own situation.
Atonement = we “see” each other as ourselves and we seek to lift and support them as we are able.
Even within a group, we can choose to acknowledge these truths in our own hearts and become the “light of the world” by stepping into our true role as/in Christ, the only begotten Son of God.
The only adversary is our mind that believes that anything besides God’s Perfection is possible.
WE ARE ABLE TO “SEE” THINGS DIFFERENTLY!
With the political unrest in the USA, I was a bit hesitant to put this up.
I thought that I might at least change the title. Then again, if it got someone to read it who was in a huff who also allowed the Holy Spirit just a tiny allowance to interpret what they were reading, maybe it could bless someone’s life and make their load a little lighter.
I cannot determine what is in another’s heart or mind. I only decide for myself.
Till next time, God bless, bye for now.
Forgiveness for the belief in Separation from God is something we all need.
We All Have a Friend In Jesus Because He Lifts Us To the Father As We Do For Him
If he had not believed in the separation he would be here among us.
He may have even been the one who began it, hence, he is the “alpha and omega”, the “beginning and the end”. And yet…
If I wanted to feel alone.
Where would I go?
To the place where the voices
say we are one
and none resonate that in their
compassion and words.
I would find a multitude
to tell me how divine we are
and yet exemplify that only one way is correct.
I would hear the words of love
and feel the hollow echo of empty chasms.
I would hear the words “come unto me” and
find cold, bitter, winds of vengeance and
recall of the illusion of separation.
I would look outside of myself
and be lost.
Inside I know differently.
Inside I know peace.
Inside I know hope.
Inside I know promise.
Inside I know creation.
Inside I know that circumstance does not define.
Inside I know that truth is full of joy and exquisite delight.
Inside I know that God IS.
Is there anything that I require but this knowledge?
Companions lead us to that witness and
in this, I know Jesus as my friend.
For he tells me of his witness of the Father
and I believe.
The Holy Spirit walks with me and
bears witness this is so.
Circumstances come and go.
Babies are born.
Still the stillness inside
Because I have taken the words of Jesus
into my heart and made them mine.
There is nothing I can offer you or anyone
that is greater
than the invitation
in this, I know Jesus as my friend.
There is nothing I can offer you or anyone
that is greater
than the invitation
*Till next time, God bless, bye for now.
It is time to recognize what cannot be seen!
The body is only a tool for communicating the love of the Father to the Son and vice versa.
When I receive anything from anyone I want to remember that it is coming from God whether it is a million bucks or a smile.
Love and forgiveness are gifts that we all can open and share with the world.
Everyone has access to them within themselves.
We have assistance in this place where Separation and lack seem so real.
Nature, Guides, Holy Spirit, intuition, sunshine, the ground we stand on, trees, take advantage, recognize, ask for, and experience the assistance they are waiting to share!
In the book from which I take this reading, I stated “It is right to want to know how one another is. Assist freely, as inspired.”
Today, I suspect that sometimes it is okay to just wish them well from a distance.
It can be easy to get caught up in “their story” and while it is just as valid as yours, blending the two can make it more difficult to exit the confusion of the mind that keeps us in the Error of Separation.
So be careful about that idea of safety in numbers. You alone standing in the Atonement with the witness of the Holy Spirit and Jesus as a companion would be difficult company to “top”. Just mho.
It will be by grace that we stand in as we stand in the Atonement. As a little child, you will be able to make mistakes or take a fall but you have a loving Father in God that will pick you up and set you on your feet again, taking pride in your accomplishments via that Holy Spirit.
The impact of PTSD will not be as traumatic when one stands in the Atonement where all trauma is known to be a belief in the Error of Separation from God and others. This does not mean that you will not cry or hurt for the trauma will be felt. It just means that it will be more like experiencing a 3D movie that you have emotions with but you understand is not real. It will be a memory that you can take what you want from or leave alone because it has no lasting effect.
You have assistance in the Holy Spirit. Also known as the still small voice, prompting, intuition, gut, along with angels and/or guides. Nature too is close to the Divine and this is why it restores the individual and why understanding spiritual meanings of things in nature may give assistance on the journey in the illusion.
The impact of PTSD will not be taken away completely so that we can witness the discomfort that comes with the Error of Separation and be prompted to relieve it in ever so many diverse ways, eventually to give it up for the Atonement that is aware of the error, forgives it, and acknowledges that witness in their hearts as they walk about the earth.
Till next time, God bless, bye for now.
Not even you.
We make the decision to acknowledge our relationship with God and all that is.
We can either receive His witness via the Holy Spirit.
Or we can fight it.
The choice is ours, though the reality is that we are His.
It is up to us how long we stay in the attitude that we must have suffering and lack.
Despite what appearances may be in our lives.
May we know in our hearts that we are His, and His assistance will be given.
We like to think that we are the only creatures who make up the Son of God.
But there is a lot more to Christ than meets the eye.
It is my suspicion that humanity is the destination, in the mind of Christ, that manifests the “cream of the crop”.
The ones that have shown the dedication and focus to be able to put “Humpty Dumpty” back together again.
I know that it looks like we could not be more mixed up and incapable of taking care of one another and our planet, much less, galaxies without number, but this is exactly what I am proposing here.
And with that, here is our reading for November 16–22, 2020.
Give thanks to God. Show compassion and courtesy to one another.
All gifts come from God. Period.
I do not care who delivered them or who thought them up, they all come from God.
Quit paying homage to yourself and your peers.
Say thank you to the one who brings the gift, but acknowledge from whom it comes, which is God, Our Father.
Then be kind and tolerant of one another.
Give each other the space to breathe.
Be as honest as you can to yourself and to each other. And do not think that means spilling your guts.
It means being aware. Having eyes that see and ears that hear.
It begins with recognizing yourself as a Child of God who does not have an absent parent.
The Atonement knows that PTSD has no lasting effect. It may cause distress, but it is only for a moment, like a fearful jump when you are startled. Peace is your true identity.
We make up the world as a collective. “External conditions are produced by the thoughts of many, not all of whom are pure in heart as yet.” page 47 Urtext of A Course In Miracles 610-page pdf
And “Mental health is INNER peace.” (same ref. place)
Peace must be found inside and it is possible to do so in the worst of circumstances once one understands that this is an illusion and that the Son of God is Whole, Healed, Perfect, and Cherished by the Father.
And do not forget, that is you. And your neighbor as well.
We live in separate worlds, only in the ego. In the Atonement, we live as individual, autonomous beings, worthy and capable of existing in a world/body of similar entities.
Freedom is something that happens inside, just like peace.
It is found in the Atonement that witnesses that we are all one and that there is nothing to forgive because anything contrary to the will of God has no truth in it.
No matter how real it seems today.
So, breath, and move forward, whatever that means for you.
And smile, when you can! It gets easier, trust me! 🙂 ❤
We are in the process of accepting a 5th-dimensional attitude that understands that the confusion, chaos, and suffering of the world was a result of the error of separation and is not the truth of existence.
All those sore spots, whether they are from childhood or a dysfunctional partner, trapped in delusional thinking in the many cults of society. Be they from past lives or entities beyond this realm, they are all part of the confusion that put Christ into a belief in lack and tyranny.
He is ready to step into a place where His dreams are willing to work on His behalf and where the desire is the Awakening above all else.
It is a place where Christ is realized and His Father is recognized as the giver of life and all that is good.
It is not a religion, it is a psychological witness of our truth as being connected to all that is and ever will be and knowing that we were not created by our own power.
Only in this fashion can we move forward into our identity as Saviors in all the other multitudes of galaxies that await their deliverance through our witness of the truth.
The truth that we are all ONE and that the Creator has never left us, nor have we left him. We can find that witness only in the Atonement because only in the Atonement may we stand aware of our flesh and of the various forms of distress in the world and know that none of it could even be in our imaginations without the Error of Separation.
Only when all of Christ is awakened will the glorious day of reunion with the Father in full glory be realized for any of us.
In the meantime, we may be blessed with the peace that passes understanding if we will step into the Atonement and live our lives by the guidance of the Holy Spirit within us.
Our Creator meant for us to have joy and delight in creation.
We can do this!
Till next time, God bless, bye for now.

This Week Feels Like It May Be The Eye of the Storm
But at least I can write again. One step at a time.
Now, you all know that I am just doing what I have to, to stay afloat in this world that is getting curious-er by the moment, right?
I can only write what my heart feels at the time and I do my best to make it uplifting and see that it is done with the integrity of the Spirit within me.
It is going to sound different to you because everybody lives in their own world that they have created in their minds.
Because of that we should not take it lightly when we are able to interact with others in a positive light. That is something that we need to give thanks for, imho.
Thank you for spending a few moments for reflection with me.
This is the reading from November 8th to the 15th.
Everything at once, all is NOW! Any action releasing His Story impacts NOW!
Forgiveness will release so many things.
If you can release the need for vengeance, revenge, blame, shame, and all the rest that weighs us down you have given yourself and the rest of the world a great gift.
You do have to accept where others are and be mindful of that.
If they are trapped in those negative things we just want to love them from a safe distance.
Remember the past like a comedy show, or a horror show if that is what it was, but do your best to see it for the illusion that it is in the construct of a mind gone delirious because it believes it has left its source of strength.
Because that is what our lives are at the moment as we believe that we have fallen or separated from God.
I sometimes find myself talking in the voice of the other person to have the outcome I desire. I let it flow and there is always the concept that they appreciate what I am trying to do on some level. What happens is that it lets the emotion that I am struggling with calm down.
Writing, nature, visualizations, these all can help as we let our hearts know that we are in a safe and loving place. Use the tools that come to mind and do not be afraid to ask your angels to recommend some.
Though PTSD will not leave in this existence (at least not permanently) that is a good thing because it alerts us to our error of the belief in separation and that is how we want to see it. The Atonement is what makes it bearable.
It can serve as a reminder that God would not leave us in a place of sorrow or distress.
Wait, what am I saying there?
I am saying that we could see sadness as a gift and we could express it and share it in that way, if we were standing in the Atonement where we know we are all One and that God has not forsaken or forgotten us because we have left Him.
This will not mean you do not have challenges. It means you will not be overwhelmed by them and that they will lift quicker.
It is similar to how the sting of death is not quite so bitter when you know that you cannot die. Your body will complete its mission but you continue on. (Not as a ghost, as a fully functional consciousness to create further experiences.)
Thinking of sorrow or stress and its reprecussions as a gift may seem like a kick in the backside if you are having nightmares from a tragic incident but I assure you that from the place of the Atonement this would be a real possibility. It gives you something to hold onto when the whole world caves in.
I would think that seeing PTSD as the gift that it is would certainly give the people who understand Law of Attraction and Oneness a way to honor their witness in the world of suffering as well as those that they interact with that do not have those understandings as yet.
And for those who do not understand and say that you should get over it or shove it off, that is not for them to decide. Your path is yours alone and others do not have a right or reason to question it.
You are not separate. Bash another, you bash yourself. Lift another you lift yourself.
Seems pretty straightforward doesn’t it?
I find myself putting myself down, especially as a mother of adult children.
Let’s see, how many flaws do I have?
Sometimes it is a bit unrealistic and sometimes you just have to say “Yes, I was a lousy mom.” There is a difference between stating a fact and beating yourself up about it or anythings else.
Own up to your personal weaknesses.
We all have them.
And then have a good belly laugh! Hahahahaha!
And give yourself a hug!
Now, remember to do that for others that push your buttons and mess with your head. ❤
You can use the things that you are learning to give all of creation a different perspective on life.
Now would be a good time to write that book that you have been putting off.
Somewhere in the cosmos there is someone who needs to hear about life from your perspective.
Seriously, and one of the most important people just might be you.
You would be surprised at what writing a book can do.
There is a sense of accomplishment.
There is also an incredible amount of inner growth that comes from putting in written form what is swirling around in your mind.
And do not be surprised if it does not open the door to a new side of you.
You will grow and develop at a super-warp speed if you commit to journaling or finding a way to put down your deepest thoughts.
Do not worry about making lots of money from it, though, I suppose that can still be done in the world. However you choose to do it, just get to it! You will be glad that you did!
Could 2020 be the year of the explosion of the written word?
PS If it fits, use it. If it doesn’t that’s cool! Whatever you do be kind to yourself!
So glad you joined me!
Till next time, God bless, bye for now!
To exit “The Matrix”, we have to let go of the story of our lives, and history. “See” their impossibility, and acknowledge At-One-Meant. The Atonement Is NOW.
From a reading for October 26-November 1st
Power-Hunger will use manipulation to see that you comply with their view of the world.
It is manipulative and coniving.
It can be found behind a smile or even in an embrace.
We need to be able to see it in ourselves when we do not allow others to have a voice and a view or idea or opinion.
Accepting the Atonement is the number one goal of this existence.
Only the Atonement understands what freedom is because it gives it to everyone and not just one individual or one group.
The Atonement would have room not only for freedom and tolerance for every sentient being on the earth but for every being outside of earth as well.
When we meet, we want to meet in awareness and the mindset of the Atonement. This means if meeting together causes a sense of division let it go.
When meeting with others when we stand in the witness of the Atonement we acknowledge them and are willing to allow them to be heard and to express where they are right at this moment.
I want to speak of that quote “Where two or more are gathered, there God is.”
I declare that is referring to bodies and bodies are not real and cannot be “in God”. Only our minds and hearts can be in remembrance of God.
And all it takes is ONE INDIVIDUAL’s MIND to connect to the Whole of Christ and influence it.
That is why worldwide prayer and meditation unites us and is effective because the power is sent in our thoughts and intentions.
This shows that we are connected, gathered, and together in the mind, our thoughts as nothing else can.
Taking care of me represents taking care of the Whole.
This would suggest that perhaps meditation alone would be a greater influence than being a professional speaker to thousands IF ONE IS IN THE CORRECT RIGHTMINDEDNESS of the Atonement.
And we can be there in all that we do.
It is in our hearts and minds that we can stand for what we believe.
Here God will be welcomed and His power and guidance will be felt.
This is my witness, in the name of Jesus for Christ’s sake, amen.
I just want to hunker down and breathe.
It is powerful, and there is a part of me that just wants to go into hibernation, as far as the world goes, and stay in my witness that God is in charge.
Little things have been going amiss here at home. I had a couple of deaths in family and what felt like family. But I am not allowed to mourn with others. Then again, mourning really is a singular occupation because we each process it differently.
Self-maintenance has been my lifestyle.
I know serving, and I enjoy it, but I find that self-care is what is required of me lately.
And that will be enough.
To hold steady in my witness of the atonement in a world that seems so distraught is valuable in and of itself.
Forgiving the hysteria and confusion that we find ourselves in and grateful for those who reach out to lift our communities and spirits.
I want to follow the prompting to send a cheerful note to a lady that I know is shut in at a care center and not able to have the regular visits of her son.
Following those promptings allows us to lift others and ourselves at the same time.
Here is the belated reflection that I did for this past week (19th-25th) and what I learned:
Once we understand the atonement ourselves, we want to understand each other so that we can help clear away their feelings of unworthiness of the joy being offered by the universe.
That is the offering that I extend to you as I write my posts.
We do this as we live our lives as fully as possible following the promptings of the Spirit within us.
We each have individual and specific gifts for the time that we live in. We can choose not to use them or recognize them, but we each have them.
To stand in the witness of the atonement and forgive the error of separation and all the consequences that come from that error is huge and is enough to change the world.
Beyond this there is something that each of us has that can be offered to the world. It may be something that looks solely like self care. If it is done with the witness that we are all one. Can that be a bad thing?
Some of the greatest talents that have ever been have been outliers. People willing to do what they do because of an inner drive, not for show or wages or recognition.
Follow your inner guide and embrace the magic of whoever you are in this incarnation because you bless us ALL when you do.
Time was given by God to humanity to clear up the error of separation and betrayal, and to clear the consequential guilt, because none of it is possible.
Time will disappear in the way that we look at it today, as we step into the atonement and embrace the miracle of forgiveness found within it.
The atonement truly erases all sorrows and offenses, past and future, because it dwells only in love.
Guilt creates the fear that locks us into a state of future and gives us a past that we fear we will be punished for.
Remove guilt through the atonement and you live in an eternal NOW.
That is the only way to heal what is wrong with society, anything else is only a bandage that will need to be replaced over and over because it cannot heal what ails our souls.
As you bash others, you bash yourself. And vice versa. Yet, we do not bash anything other than the monsters our egos believe we have created in our fearful state. Uplift others and you uplift yourself.
I know, you can say “but what about so and so who did such and such”?
That, you want to let go of.
Now, I know you have to live in the world, and while others demand to live from the ego, you will need to keep a safe physical and psychological distance.
Yet, while doing so, you are able to stand in the witness of the truth of the atonement and know that they are loved and a part of yourself whatever their ego manifestations may be.
You can also stand in assurance that there will come a time when they realize the atonement as well and will be able to stand beside you in that witness.
Do not let what you see define what you believe!
You have an inner witness of truth and Wholeness. Lean into that. Let it comfort you and bring you peace.
This is my hope and prayer for you, in the name of Jesus, for Christ’s sake, amen.
