All Grievances Must Evaporate for the Light to Be Seen

For March 10, my thoughts* on ACIM Lesson 69.

* Please read to the very end for a significant understanding about how the Course got to be so misunderstood.

My grievances hide the light of the world in me.

* The light of the world IS STILL in me; I just am not able to see it.

* And note that there is a light in the world which in and of itself says that the world IS and is not completely illusion like some have suggested that the Course states.

1. No one can look upon what your grievances conceal. ²Because your grievances are hiding the light of the world in you, everyone stands in darkness, and you beside him. ³But as the veil of your grievances is lifted, you are released with him. ⁴Share your salvation now with him who stood beside you when you were in hell. ⁵He is your brother in the light of the world that saves you both.

* True forgiveness removes your grievances. There are many kinds of false forgiveness that do not do what Jesus is teaching us in the Course and are acts of hate actually, instead of an act of love which Forgiveness is. (True Forgiveness knows that God IS and that anything outside of God’s Will is impossible therefore our suffering that was brought about by belief in separation from God is the illusion along with all consequences from that belief.)

2. Today let us make another real attempt to reach the light in you. ²Before we undertake this in our more extended practice period, let us devote several minutes to thinking about what we are trying to do. ³We are literally attempting to get in touch with the salvation of the world. ⁴We are trying to see past the veil of darkness that keeps it concealed. ⁵We are trying to let the veil be lifted, and to see the tears of God’s Son disappear in the sunlight.

3. Let us begin our longer practice period today with the full realization that this is so, and with real determination to reach what is dearer to us than all else. ²Salvation is our only need. ³There is no other purpose here, and no other function to fulfill. ⁴Learning salvation is our only goal. ⁵Let us end the ancient search today by finding the light in us, and holding it up for everyone who searches with us to look upon and rejoice.

4. Very quietly now, with your eyes closed, try to let go of all the content that generally occupies your consciousness. ²Think of your mind as a vast circle, surrounded by a layer of heavy, dark clouds. ³You can see only the clouds because you seem to be standing outside the circle and quite apart from it.

5. From where you stand, you can see no reason to believe there is a brilliant light hidden by the clouds. ²The clouds seem to be the only reality. ³They seem to be all there is to see. ⁴Therefore, you do not attempt to go through them and past them, which is the only way in which you would be really convinced of their lack of substance. ⁵We will make this attempt today.

* The clouds represent the results of and the belief of separation from God.

6. After you have thought about the importance of what you are trying to do for yourself and the world, try to settle down in perfect stillness, remembering only how much you want to reach the light in you today,—now! ²Determine to go past the clouds. ³Reach out and touch them in your mind. ⁴Brush them aside with your hand; feel them resting on your cheeks and forehead and eyelids as you go through them. ⁵Go on; clouds cannot stop you.

* I absolutely love the imagery!

7. If you are doing the exercises properly, you will begin to feel a sense of being lifted up and carried ahead. ²Your little effort and small determination call on the power of the universe to help you, and God Himself will raise you from darkness into light. ³You are in accord with His Will. ⁴You cannot fail because your will is His.

* Amen.

8. Have confidence in your Father today, and be certain that He has heard you and answered you. ²You may not recognize His answer yet, but you can indeed be sure that it is given you and you will yet receive it. ³Try, as you attempt to go through the clouds to the light, to hold this confidence in your mind. ⁴Try to remember that you are at last joining your will to God’s. ⁵Try to keep the thought clearly in mind that what you undertake with God must succeed. ⁶Then let the power of God work in you and through you, that His Will and yours be done.

* Remember that letting go of the grievances is another way to say “Forgiveness”. You can do this and do it completely, hold nothing back and no one outside of the clearing so that your light might be exposed for all to see (and feel).

9. In the shorter practice periods, which you will want to do as often as possible in view of the importance of today’s idea to you and your happiness, remind yourself that your grievances are hiding the light of the world from your awareness. ²Remind yourself also that you are not searching for it alone, and that you do know where to look for it. ³Say, then:

⁴My grievances hide the light of the world in me. ⁵I cannot see what I have hidden. ⁶Yet I want to let it be revealed to me, for my salvation and the salvation of the world.

⁷Also, be sure to tell yourself:

⁸If I hold this grievance the light of the world will be hidden from me,

if you are tempted to hold anything against anyone today.

* In the Web Edition a portion of this sentence is not kept in italics and is lower making it look as if it is not a part of the sentence. It is also separated by a comma. “…if you are tempted to hold anything against anyone today.” But it must be united and be in one sentence to teach what Jesus is saying.

* ⁸If I hold this grievance the light of the world will be hidden from me if ~*I AM~ tempted to hold anything against anyone today ~*OR EVER~.

* I do not for a second believe that this was meant to be separated because it is VITAL to the original thought.

* Removing it and changing the pronoun has altered the meaning and left people the opportunity to teach something that is NOT what Jesus taught and that is that we have to forgive one person or one day at a time. That is NOT so. We are able to forgive once and for all, and then be led by the Wholly Spirit.

* This is VERY IMPORTANT in understanding Jesus’ message.

For 23 February 2023, if you do it daily. My thoughts* on ACIM Lesson 54. **I Have No Neutral Thoughts**

My thoughts* are my own from my experience with the Wholly Spirit and my studies.

You cannot have neutral thoughts. They ALWAYS have power. God gave you that.
#power Whose power are you going for? The Matrix that is a delusion or the Holy Spirit? (You will see me write it Wholly Spirit from now on unless I am typing a quote because THAT is what it means. Wholly Spirit is not something better than ourselves, IT IS US and God combined. ~ Well, part of God’s Mind anyway. No, it has to be the Whole of it because God gave everything to His Son. ~ It happens to be quintessential to what makes us one Whole Entity!)

Photo by some.walks on Unsplash ❤ ❤ ❤ Divine or the Matrix? We decide.

These are the review ideas for today:

1. (16) **I have no neutral thoughts.**

²Neutral thoughts are impossible because all thoughts have power.

* All thoughts of the Son of God, which you ARE, have power. Hmm.

³They will either make a false world or lead me to the real one. ⁴But thoughts cannot be without effects. ⁵As the world I see arises from my thinking errors, so will the real world rise before my eyes as I let my errors be corrected. ⁶My thoughts cannot be neither true nor false. ⁷They must be one or the other. ⁸What I see shows me which they are.

* Do not mistake this to be saying that you will see visions such as those who have near-death experiences or those taking hallucinatory mushrooms will have.

* It will be your heart that “sees” the Son of God. Or you might think of it as your “inner eye” or spiritual eye. There will be a growing witness inside that tells you the truth from error as well. IF you are willing to listen to it and not shut it off and let the ego play magic games with you instead.

2. (17) **I see no neutral things.**

²What I see witnesses to what I think. ³If I did not think I would not exist, because life is thought.

* Isn’t that radical!!! And you thought you was “just here”! lol

* It is my understanding that we have actually done a lot of work to be here on earth and it is a mission as challenging as any wartime assignment is. However, this warrior comes without defenses and with the only artillery it needs to alter this existence. (It is the Wholly Spirit within that tells us that this body and society is not the fullness of what we are.)

* There are many bodied and unembodied assistants who help you stay on track with the assignment that you undertook. Each of us is unique so each of us plays it out in our own fashion, but play it out we do. And I am grateful for every one of you.

⁴Let me look on the world I see as the representation of my own state of mind. ⁵I know that my state of mind can change. ⁶And so I also know the world I see can change as well.

* I can see this as being where some students think that they are doing the work themselves. What was forgotten is that you are simply choosing between the false ego mind or the Wholly Spirit. You do not get to have any other choices. (I just read this in the ACIM Urtext today, page 135, first full paragraph: “But remember that the ALTERNATIVES are unalterable. The Holy Spirit, like the ego, is a decision. Together they constitute all the alternatives which your mind CAN accept and obey. The ego and the Holy Spirit are the ONLY choices open to you. God created one, and so you cannot eradicate it. YOU made the other, so you CAN. Only what God creates is irreversible and unchangeable. What YOU have made can always be changed, because when you (*do) not think LIKE God, you have not really thought at all. Delusional ideas are NOT thought, but you CAN think that you believe in them.)

3. (18) **I am not alone in experiencing the effects of my seeing.**

* NO private thoughts mean that there are others who share them with me. *Read number 3 below, its a hoot!

²If I have no private thoughts, I cannot see a private world. ³Even the mad idea of separation had to be shared before it could form the basis of the world I see.

* We CANNOT be separated even in our delusions.

⁴Yet that sharing was a sharing of nothing. ⁵I can also call upon my real thoughts, which share everything with everyone. ⁶As my thoughts of separation call to the separation thoughts of others, so my real thoughts awaken the real thoughts in them. ⁷And the world my real thoughts show me will dawn on their sight as well as mine.

4. (19) **I am not alone in experiencing the effects of my thoughts.**

* Might we not want to give a little more credence to what we think? What our neighbor thinks? Or what our children think? Might this not need to alter the very substance of how we look at the world?

²I am alone in nothing. ³Everything I think or say or do teaches all the universe. ⁴A Son of God cannot think or speak or act in vain. ⁵He cannot be alone in anything. ⁶It is therefore in my power to change every mind along with mine, for mine is the power of God.

* Did you read that? THE POWER of ONE MIND to CHANGE EVERY OTHER. I am game! I am going for it. I am banking on the fact that God IS.

5. (20) **I am determined to see.**

²Recognizing the shared nature of my thoughts, I am determined to see.

* Determination is critical here. It states a decision and blows fear away.

³I would look upon the witnesses that show me the thinking of the world has been changed. ⁴I would behold the proof that what has been done through me has enabled love to replace fear, laughter to replace tears, and abundance to replace loss.

* I will (sort of like choose but more affirmatively) to see these things. Some will manifest in the physical. Some may not for some time. It is up to me to note that anything that is not as stated above is a mistake and will be corrected. Just as important is for me to look for examples of these things expressing themselves HERE in the world of form.

⁵I would look upon the real world, and let it teach me that my will and the Will of God are one.

* God wishes to bless His Son but He Will not do so until He is willing to receive. We can accept this ONCE we have forgiven the Son for the belief in separation and follow the Guidance of the Wholly Spirit.

Universal Reading February 2023 Forgive Yourself for Believing You Can Fix What Is Perfect

This is me trying to understand what it is all about using my understanding of A Course in Miracles.

Photo by Rick Mason on Unsplash

1. You may be able to see their role in the Universal Plan but please understand not all things will be “fixed” during this time.

I guess I am still struggling with this one. Everybody has their own time and way to come back into the truth that God IS.

Jesus says that we each will eventually get our fill of suffering and turn back to God.

For those who are hearing that call it may be very challenging that everything cannot just be organized and set right once we are finally willing to accept that God has the only power that there could ever be.

Sometimes disorder must come before the calm.

I find myself thinking that it is my place to teach others, especially my adult children or grandchildren but I have discovered that it is the Holy Spirit that does the teaching that matters in this world, and that the Holy Spirit has to be invited by the individual.

Then there are times that I do not correct a situation because they are old enough to know when something is inappropriate and I get looked at like I am a lousy mother, as if they would listen to me anyway. Chuckle, it is important to remember that God is there Source of strength even when they think it is supposed to be you.

There is nothing I can do to bring another person to the place where they are willing to receive God and His Guidance.

His Guidance is what I have lived by all of my life and when my adult children come to me that is what I share. Sadly, they just think that is a copout and do not come to me anymore. Or they fake it and I get the blame for some decision that I had no part in.

These are some of the things that I “think” I see in my experience.

It is not for me to fix things. It is for me to accept forgiveness, offer forgiveness, and to know that God IS.

There is peace in this and in remembering that we are all as God created us and not what we made of ourselves as Jesus teaches in A Course in Miracles.

Any other idea of what we are is of the ego and mistaken.

I suspect that it can be helpful to write down the things that are stressful or that we would like to fix and steam about them a day or two and let it blow away.

That is what I did, anyway. And a good part of why this Reading is a bit later than usual.

It can be easy for the illusion or chaos to be taken as real, or at least bothersome, even when we know otherwise, and it can be important to bring a break to the routine and find another way to engage in the world.

I plan on taking my own advice. haha

One thing I know for sure is that I would like to be seen as my own person and not as someone’s sister, daughter, or mother. Not even as someone’s wife to tell you the truth. Though I know well, the draw and sense of security that comes with that role.

But this only allows others to place me in a category and label me. And it is unfair and purely a false identity before God (who is the only one who truly matters) who sees me as an individual and the Whole Son of God at the same time.

God does not see me as “belonging” to anyone else because He knows that I “belong” to Him, period.

I am my own self and my relationship with God distinguishes and secures that Reality.

2. In the Atonement, we see others as Christ or Creation and understand that we are each supported in our “Being” by God Himself.

Embracing the Forgiveness of the Atonement taught by Jesus in A Course in Miracles allows us not to get caught up in what people think they know. And assures us that God will open their eyes when they are ready to acknowledge Him.

This is why RESPECT is to be given to all.

By doing this we acknowledge God in our own lives.

God created us as His Son. It is this that gives us value.

This extends to all of creation, including the earth, all of its inhabitants, and beyond.

We are living multiple stories wearing different hats throughout this lifetime. There is:

The one the ego thinks he got away with.

The one that is told in our various cults and cultures that we participate in.

The one that society has given us.

The one tradition has given us.

The one that our “caste” has given us. (And this system is in ALL cultures, whether it be known by this name or not.)

The one that our ancestors have left us through habits; physical, psychological, and all other forms of being.

Each of these layers MUST be and WILL be removed according to the timing of OUR willingness to see them and let them be acknowledged as untrue with the help of the “Wholly” Spirit.

3. Forgive the original error, which is the thought by Christ that He had separated from God.

This is where we begin.

It must be a Universal Forgiveness of all that you believe that you understand, or you will be “chasing the tail of the ego” around in circles.

Having gratitude and respect for all is one way that we accept that we too have been forgiven.

4. Like a little child, you will be able to make mistakes or take a fall, but you have a friend in Jesus who will help where he can. His goal is to have you stand on your own two feet and be able to kneel at the altar of God WITH him.

Understand that Jesus is there for each of us as an elder brother and still must be included in the Universal Forgiveness of the Atonement that each of us will be required to accept since this is the undoing of the belief in separation from God.

In the Urtext Jesus says that he was tempted to believe he was a body. I suspect that one of his gifts is that he literally remembers being one with all of us in God in the first place. No one else has that literal remembrance.

Granted I may still be weaning off of the false teaching of A Course in Miracles that has been taught around the world for 45 years which did not place Jesus in any kind of place of respect which the Urtext clearly does.

And not all of the Mind of Christ got caught in the addiction of separation from God. I still suspect he may have been the first to think of separation and acknowledged the Atonement immediately while others got trapped in the idea of being their own creator and did not accept the Atonement immediately as he did.

I will be studying nothing beside the Urtext from here forward. It makes me a bit frustrated, but it will not stop me from sharing my understanding of the Course material. I have no doubt that it will change as my understanding increases. As always, YOU are responsible for what you choose to believe. Please do so responsibly and with real intent.

I do know that Jesus is devoted to us because he is devoted to his own existence in God. And that this is how we want to be as well because returns to God Whole and until that is accomplished, we walk in faith and trust.

Christ (not Jesus alone but all of us with Jesus and all of creation) is perfect and without sin but not without the capacity to make a mistake. It is Christ in whom MANY have expression, unitedly seen as one Whole, the Son of God.

All of that which we believe has happened to our ancestors and ourselves, including past lives, and connections with the stars must be forgiven.

What that really looks like once healing is complete, I cannot say that I know because God did not create His Son to be controlled or constricted but to be creative, even as God is, and that eternally.

Time is a temporary tool given to humanity for the purpose of undoing the error of belief in separation from God. And it lasts primarily to undo the guilt for the past and fear of the future brought about by the ego. The forgiveness of the Atonement releases all of this and gives the Wholly Spirit the opportunity, with our permission, to lead us out of our confusion.

I want to let go of judgment even within my “story” and let God touch His Children’s hearts through the Wholly Spirit whenever and however they are ready to receive it.

According to Jesus in A Course in Miracles, spirit (or Souls) are what we are and they are one with God so Wholly Spirit just makes sense to me. It renders a meaning that embraces both the Son and the Father.

I suspect I will continue using this spelling because Holy suggests something different than what we are and has a sense of division and separation that I do not want to partake in.

I am learning right along with you and how I do that is by sharing what I understand today. Thanks for listening.

Till next time, God bless, debi.

A Course in Miracles Workbook Lessons 1-5 (MyACIM)

I cannot share it from anyone else’s point of view. This is my witness today. In sharing my understanding I am opening space to be taught by the Holy Spirit.

These lessons are meant to be done one per day to release the attachment to the world (an attitude that will not allow God’s Presence).

However, I suspect that they were compromised by over-editing because they were not understood and the scribes did not feel strong enough to maintain the integrity of what had been written.

I am in NO WAY proposing a re-write of the Workbook or the Course because it is the Holy Spirit that does the teaching and there are layers to that teaching.

It is only fair to say that I believe Jesus of Nazareth to be the primary author of the message that was given to Helen Shucman in A Course in Miracles.

Let the Holy Spirit guide you in these readings, please.

Maybe my view of ACIM is inverted like my photo. lol But it is what I have to share.

My Thoughts* on ACIM Workbook Lesson 1.

The Course is in two parts. The first is to break down the thought system that you have applied in the world. The second is to show you that you have assistance to move into a better one.

Part I
Lesson 1
Nothing I see in this room [on this street, from this window, in this place] means anything.

1. Now look slowly around you, and practice applying this idea very specifically to whatever you see:
²This table does not mean anything.
³This chair does not mean anything.
⁴This hand does not mean anything.
⁵This foot does not mean anything.
⁶This pen does not mean anything.

2. Then look farther away from your immediate area, and apply the idea to a wider range:
²That door does not mean anything.
³That body does not mean anything.
⁴That lamp does not mean anything.
⁵That sign does not mean anything.
⁶That shadow does not mean anything.

3. Notice that these statements are not arranged in any order, and make no allowance for differences in the kinds of things to which they are applied. ²That is the purpose of the exercise. ³The statement should merely be applied to anything you see. ⁴As you practice the idea for the day, use it totally indiscriminately. ⁵Do not attempt to apply it to everything you see, for these exercises should not become ritualistic. ⁶Only be sure that nothing you see is specifically excluded. ⁷One thing is like another as far as the application of the idea is concerned.

4. Each of the first three lessons should not be done more than twice a day each, preferably morning and evening. ²Nor should they be attempted for more than a minute or so, unless that entails a sense of hurry. ³A comfortable sense of leisure is essential.

* As this lesson has settled into my mind these nearly 10 years in the Course and three years in the Atonement with which I forgave the original error of Christ that separation from God was possible I find myself in a world where I see myself as a spectator rather than a participant.

* Be that as it may I do have an understanding that this work that I do in the Course is going to be the focus of the rest of my existence in this form.

* So, regards this lesson you will need to be willing to let go of what you believe you understand about existence. Not because you or they are not real but because the foundation of thought upon which the world we presently see was mentally wrapped around the idea that God’s Will and the Son’s Will are two different things or that there is separation from the Father in any way shape or form.

* This shift happens even while what you do experience in the world becomes exquisitely focused and very real and special to you because this is a world that is meant to be filled with delight and enjoyment. I am talking about celebrating life. You might talk to trees or animals and not be able to communicate with people.

* You will see and hear interactions with people that will rip you apart UNLESS you understand that all these things need to happen but THEY HAVE NO BEARING ON WHO YOU ARE or the FACT that CHRIST is ALIVE HERE AND NOW ALL AROUND US.

* Our children need to be taught this at an early age. That their reality and existence is dependent solely on what is INSIDE of them and not what is OUTSIDE.

* This will be a very rough time for people unless they tap into what is inside of them because unlike days past they are aware that things SHOULD NOT be as they are. Things are not being hidden away.

*We want to assure them that we are in a great shift in which we are all changing and they are part of the light. They want to shine that Light by listening well to the voice within and NOT the voices outside of themselves that seek to crush them.

* People are going through unnecessary suffering and I choose to stand up and say this does not need to happen IF we will accept where we are in our evolution and understand what we are dealing with. This is only the beginning.

Please understand that the Workbook is meant to be done one a day for 365 days. The goal is to have you walking with the Holy Spirit and extending God’s Love into a world that His Son thought He had forsaken.
Till next time, God bless, debi.



Lesson 2
I have given everything I see in this room [on this street, from this window, in this place] all the meaning that it has for me.
1. The exercises with this idea are the same as those for the first one. ²Begin with the things that are near you, and apply the idea to whatever your glance rests on. ³Then increase the range outward. ⁴Turn your head so that you include whatever is on either side. ⁵If possible, turn around and apply the idea to what was behind you. ⁶Remain as indiscriminate as possible in selecting subjects for its application, do not concentrate on anything in particular, and do not attempt to include everything you see in a given area, or you will introduce strain.
2. Merely glance easily and fairly quickly around you, trying to avoid selection by size, brightness, color, material, or relative importance to you. ²Take the subjects simply as you see them. ³Try to apply the exercise with equal ease to a body or a button, a fly or a floor, an arm or an apple. ⁴The sole criterion for applying the idea to anything is merely that your eyes have lighted on it. ⁵Make no attempt to include anything particular, but be sure that nothing is specifically excluded.
>
* I have given everything meaning through my confused belief that God and His Son (me) are separate.
>
* And this happens to go back for generations and out to each and every one of us in the world at this time. It is a united scrambled thought system and EACH of us has our part in it restoring sanity.
<
Till next time, God bless, debi.

Lesson 3

I do not understand anything I see in this room [on this street, from this window, in this place].

1. Apply this idea in the same way as the previous ones, without making distinctions of any kind. ²Whatever you see becomes a proper subject for applying the idea. ³Be sure that you do not question the suitability of anything for application of the idea. ⁴These are not exercises in judgment. ⁵Anything is suitable if you see it. ⁶Some of the things you see may have emotionally charged meaning for you. ⁷Try to lay such feelings aside, and merely use these things exactly as you would anything else.

2. The point of the exercises is to help you clear your mind of all past associations, to see things exactly as they appear to you now, and to realize how little you really understand about them. ²It is therefore essential that you keep a perfectly open mind, unhampered by judgment, in selecting the things to which the idea for the day is to be applied. ³For this purpose one thing is like another; equally suitable and therefore equally useful.

* “2. The point of the exercises is to help you clear your mind of all past associations, to see things exactly as they appear to you now, and to realize how little you really understand about them.”

* Now, if you think that this Course is about taking you into lala land without needing and weed or mushrooms you are reading the wrong post. This Course is meant to tell you that you are in the Matrix and you have within you the keys to getting out of it AND they happen to be in YOUR mind.

* But first you have to be able to take the pill that opens your eyes and allows you to see that something definitely is not right here and there is nothing here that is going to fix it.

* If you are looking for me to soft-coat this you are looking at the wrong person. That is not my calling.
* Others need to take what I say and translate it for the masses IF it makes sense to you.

* We are going to ride a wild pony this year as I dive deep into the Urtext, the lives of the scribes, and my own sordid journey.

* I think it is Harry and Meghan’s Live and Lead that has me extra pumped at the moment. I used to buy the idea that you could get a voice and change the world but all that you do is change the world-appearance at best and give the Evil Ego time to put on another costume that ensures that humanity will stay away from knowing itself, its Creator and each other.

* I no longer believe in the concept of gathering either. I choose to believe in God and in One Mind, or Consciousness, of Christ and that all of Creation is a part of that.

* I hope that by clearing out the cobwebs in my mind I might ignite an idea in another’s mind that wants to join me. If I am wrong I take responsibility for that as I expect you to take responsibility for yourself.

* I do not understand anything in this world but I do know the one Holy Spirit who does.

Lesson 4

These thoughts do not mean anything. They are like the things I see in this room [on this street, from this window, in this place].

1. Unlike the preceding ones, these exercises do not begin with the idea for the day. ²In these practice periods, begin with noting the thoughts that are crossing your mind for about a minute. ³Then apply the idea to them. ⁴If you are already aware of unhappy thoughts, use them as subjects for the idea. ⁵Do not, however, select only the thoughts you think are “bad.” ⁶You will find, if you train yourself to look at your thoughts, that they represent such a mixture that, in a sense, none of them can be called “good” or “bad.” ⁷This is why they do not mean anything.

2. In selecting the subjects for the application of today’s idea, the usual specificity is required. ²Do not be afraid to use “good” thoughts as well as “bad.” ³None of them represents your real thoughts, which are being covered up by them. ⁴The “good” ones are but shadows of what lies beyond, and shadows make sight difficult. ⁵The “bad” ones are blocks to sight, and make seeing impossible. ⁶You do not want either.

3. This is a major exercise, and will be repeated from time to time in somewhat different form. ²The aim here is to train you in the first steps toward the goal of separating the meaningless from the meaningful. ³It is a first attempt in the long-range purpose of learning to see the meaningless as outside you, and the meaningful within. ⁴It is also the beginning of training your mind to recognize what is the same and what is different.

4. In using your thoughts for application of the idea for today, identify each thought by the central figure or event it contains; for example:

²This thought about _________ does not mean anything.
³It is like the things I see in this room [on this street, and so on].

5. You can also use the idea for a particular thought that you recognize as harmful. ²This practice is useful, but is not a substitute for the more random procedures to be followed for the exercises. ³Do not, however, examine your mind for more than a minute or so. ⁴You are too inexperienced as yet to avoid a tendency to become pointlessly preoccupied.

6. Further, since these exercises are the first of their kind, you may find the suspension of judgment in connection with thoughts particularly difficult. ²Do not repeat these exercises more than three or four times during the day. ³We will return to them later.

* “3. This is a major exercise, and will be repeated from time to time in somewhat different form.” I think it is important to realize the importance of this lesson. “ … the first steps toward the goal of separating the meaningless from the meaningful.”

* “³It is a first attempt in the long-range purpose of learning to see the meaningless as outside you, and the meaningful within.” This is HUGE. Humanity MUST be willing to live from the inside out because otherwise, we are IGNORING our very essence and manufacturing suffering that does not need to exist.

* It took Jesus and us a long time to understand this fully, in my understanding of the Course. We took millions of years to get to this state. Once we got to a dense enough level to manifest physicality it has still taken thousands (or maybe millions) of years to attempt every sort of reasoning with those outside. The Atonement is an inner awareness that unites us with the Holy Spirit, Who leads us to God, the Father, who connects us to All That Is. All of this is met in the Holy Instant when we know Who We truly ARE.

* “⁴It is also the beginning of training your mind to recognize what is the same and what is different.” Only that which does not change can be the same and the only thing that this could be is God, Himself. God is in everything regardless of form otherwise it is not real.

* Please understand that this year I have been prompted to share my testimony holding nothing back. Is it for this generation or another yet to come? Is it purely for me alone to prepare my soul for a different assignment in a different form (reincarnation)? I do not know. I know only that I must give my all. I mean no offense to anyone. I only seek to manifest what I believe is God’s Will.

Lesson 5

I am never upset for the reason I think.

1. This idea, like the preceding one, can be used with any person, situation or event you think is causing you pain. ²Apply it specifically to whatever you believe is the cause of your upset, using the description of the feeling in whatever term seems accurate to you. ³The upset may seem to be fear, worry, depression, anxiety, anger, hatred, jealousy or any number of forms, all of which will be perceived as different. ⁴This is not true. ⁵However, until you learn that form does not matter, each form becomes a proper subject for the exercises for the day. ⁶Applying the same idea to each of them separately is the first step in ultimately recognizing they are all the same.

2. When using the idea for today for a specific perceived cause of an upset in any form, use both the name of the form in which you see the upset, and the cause which you ascribe to it. ²For example:

³I am not angry at _________ for the reason I think.
⁴I am not afraid of _________ for the reason I think.

3. But again, this should not be substituted for practice periods in which you first search your mind for “sources” of upset in which you believe, and forms of upset which you think result.

4. In these exercises, more than in the preceding ones, you may find it hard to be indiscriminate, and to avoid giving greater weight to some subjects than to others. ²It might help to precede the exercises with the statement:

³There are no small upsets. ⁴They are all equally disturbing to my peace of mind.

5. Then examine your mind for whatever is distressing you, regardless of how much or how little you think it is doing so.

6. You may also find yourself less willing to apply today’s idea to some perceived sources of upset than to others. ²If this occurs, think first of this:

³I cannot keep this form of upset and let the others go. ⁴For the purposes of these exercises, then, I will regard them all as the same.

7. Then search your mind for no more than a minute or so, and try to identify a number of different forms of upset that are disturbing you, regardless of the relative importance you may give them. ²Apply the idea for today to each of them, using the name of both the source of the upset as you perceive it, and of the feeling as you experience it. ³Further examples are:

I am not worried about _________ for the reason I think.
⁵I am not depressed about _________ for the reason I think.

⁶Three or four times during the day is enough.

* There is a reason we are worried about something or depressed about something but it has nothing to do with the reason that I think it does.
* Why not? Because the only thing off in the world is the belief in separation from God.
* So the correction of this belief is where Jesus is taking us with the Atonement.

Universal Reading 25 January 2023 God IS Our Essence

Not only is God VITAL to our existence; He IS All That IS which includes our very (breathe) selves.

Photo by eberhard grossgasteiger on Pexels.com

1. We have assistance as we play our role in the Universal Plan.

There are angels waiting to assist us. Some are here in body and some are not. Sometimes we need to ask for the assistance that we need and other times they are free to assist without our actually asking.

The Holy Spirit is our companion and is the Voice of God and the United Consciousness of All That IS as the Son of God that knows we are loved and worthy of joy, abundance, and peace.

Jesus is an elder brother who has been given the role of assisting all others back to Father. He will be there when you face your challenges and will “hold your hand” if you ask, even though they are yours to face.

We have guides who may be those from our family in the past or the future who guide us along the way, as well.

Let me take a moment here to say very clearly that there are those who are in our lives to be stumbling blocks and trip us up. And we need NOT fear them or consider them evil.

We want to recognize that they are confused and do not accept the idea that you can fix them. This is often a ploy that is used to trap you in their confusion with them.

2. See but do not attempt to fix.

This is a difficult one to overcome if you see yourself as a wounded individual because you KNOW how much life can hurt.

When we attempt to fix someone else we are not being helpful we are enabling destructive behavior and denying God and the fact that He Wills to be there for His Son in every capacity.

That does not mean that you cannot be kind or respectful.

It means that you do not put yourself in an impossible situation because until someone WANTS to fix their situation it simply will not be addressed.

It is not a requirement to be united with everyone in form or in the physical body.

It IS a Reality that we are united in spirit and in essence, we ARE one being along with all of creation that is known to God as Christ, His Son.

3. Having Joy in the moment allows you to send healing to the entire United Consciousness Now.

Joy is the state of being one is in NO MATTER any circumstance or emotional upheaval ONCE one has entered the Atonement.

Joy is a gift from God that the Holy Spirit bears witness to within you.

This means that like the Peace that comes with it, it is unmovable and eternal, and as one integrates it into one’s awareness Eternity and indeed Heaven will be seen and experienced.

4. Do NOT judge the roles that people are playing.

You want to remember that EVERYONE is playing a role in the Universal Plan.

Some that are doing seemingly extreme things to either side of the spectrum of what we think of as good and bad are doing just that for the healing of the Collective as a Whole.

They will be a part of your story if they are in your awareness and recording or expressing how you feel about these things (if only to yourself by being open and honest with yourself) also blesses the Collective.

This works ONLY from the place of COMPLETE OBSOLVING FORGIVENESS of the Atonement that knows that only God IS and anything outside of Him IS IMPOSSIBLE.

This way you are performing the Miracle of raising the darkness into the Light and removing that which is not of God, while in the state of Forgiveness.

This is what will shake the hearts of humanity and cause many to step out of it as they are exposed to what is really going on in the world that we believe that we have made from the idea of separation, and the fear that it imposes.

I do this Universal Reading for the United Consciousness of Christ to bring forth the latest understandings I have of the teachings of Jesus, especially as pertains to his teaching in A Course in Miracles.

The LIFELINE that we ALL will need is a relationship with the Holy Spirit and the understanding that God is the Will, the Ears, the Eyes, the Hands, and the Feet that we WANT to have because THEY ARE THE ONLY TRUTH THAT THERE COULD EVER BE.

Wow!

Wow!

These Readings allow me to bring out the latest that I have of my understanding of Principles that Jesus wants us to contemplate and think about incorporating into our lives. It teaches me, as well, for I am FIRST a student, then a teacher.

Thank you for sharing this time with me.

Till next time, God bless, debi.

Universal Reading 10th and 15th of January 2023 His Spirit Is Being Poured Out On the World

We have the power to rewrite history and heal the Whole Sonship of Christ.

Photo by Thiébaud Faix on Unsplash

1. His Story

It is time to RE-WRITE history!

We have the power to remove the suffering of humanity and all of Creation by acknowledging the Love of God for His Son.

Let God’s Love be SEEN and ACKNOWLEDGED throughout all EXISTENCE!

YOU, as THE SON OF GOD, Have That Power WITHIN YOU!

Let NO “-ISM” or single component of Creation hold your attention!

Release it all through the LOVING FORGIVENESS of the ATONEMENT that has been available to CHRIST (YOU) since before it was needed.

This IS the message that Jesus and Father have been trying to share!

2. Depression is a choice consciously or subconsciously to deny God.

Disclaimer: I am not a therapist or doctor of any sort. This is not intended as medical advice. Seek competent help as needed. This is provided for awareness alone and it is to be received in the mind and spirit. As is the entire reading. It is not professional advice for the physical.

Depression is a choice consciously

or subconsciously

to deny God.

The “so-called” powerful have it just as much as anyone else IF they deny the Power that comes from God ALONE in the form of His Love.

3. Compassion needs to be your offering to each other.

We want to offer this through the true forgiveness of the Atonement; then the remembrance that God is the One Who Provides ALL of our needs.

Then, and only by the direction of the Holy Spirit, are we to share whatever resources and gifts we are prompted to share.

* It is vital to recall that NO ONE can be Forced to accept Spiritual Healing. AND that Judgment needs to be given over to the Holy Spirit in all things as the Holy Spirit understands the fullness of what you are and the perfection with which God created You.

4. You have EVERYTHING in the Holy Spirit.

We are led to believe that the Holy Spirit is a take-it-or-leave-it sort of witness and being. Yet, He is vital to our existence as we literally “give up our life to HIM through His Direction” so that we may HAVE Eternal Life.

This is important enough to repeat:

We are led to believe that the Holy Spirit is a take-it-or-leave-it sort of witness and being. Yet, He is vital to our existence as we literally “give up our life to HIM through His Direction” so that we may HAVE ETERNAL LIFE.

5. Having joy in the moment allows you to alter the entire Christ Consciousness.

Having JOY in the moment allows you to alter the entire Christ Consciousness.

Having JOY NOW allows you to send HEALING to the entire Christ Consciousness.

Having JOY NOW allows you to be HEALED ~ NOW.

Having JOY NOW allows you to Step

Into Eternity ~ NOW ~ .

Where does this JOY come from?

The same place that the

Peace that is NOT understood in the world of the EGO is.

It is IN the Atonement that “undoes” the original error of belief in the — Separation OF ANYTHING AT ALL — !!!

What could prompt greater JOY than knowing that everyone has everything that they could ever imagine they could desire as we Stand Together in the Presence of God’s Love???!!!!!!

6. Our witness of Heaven brings its memory to others.

To witness is simply to stand in the knowledge of something.

We do this as we grow in the understanding of the Atonement that we have taken unto ourselves with Jesus and our other brothers (gender NOT implied at all).

We EACH decide WHEN

we will accept the truth that is our

TRUE REALITY.

Universal Reading 2 January 2023 Because God IS Where We Are Is Not Real, Jesus Can Help IF We Let Him

A major thing that we want to do is forgive Jesus.

Photo by James Wheeler on Pexels.com

Photo by Jens Lelie on Unsplash

1. We cannot separate ourselves from one another by physical distance or by blocking each other online. Separation is impossible.

It only SEEMS that way and this feeds the fear-charged ego that says “I am alone, abandoned, and lost” or that these things that suggest separation are even possible.

This is the opposite of “I AM” which I suggest embraces the idea that “I am one with all that is” and “I am one with God.”

This is a critical CORE understanding that humanity needs to step into as we move forward in evolution.

The glue that binds us all as the “I am” is God, our creator, and provider of all that we are and need.

God is what gives us our voice and authority to speak for Him.

Healthy boundaries are required to sustain your relationship with the Holy Spirit and your true self while we “still associate our existence in the world of form” rather than in the mind of God.

Disrespected boundaries will harm both parties “in a true sense” only by causing a delay of the eternal life of creation that you are meant to be living NOW.

This should make it easy to place all errors into the basket of forgiveness and allow the Holy Spirit, Universal Plan, and Jesus to take care of the details of healing.

Our core responsibility then is to forgive and recognize God and His Son in all that is.

2. God IS.

Because God IS and we know that we have eternal life, we can look to His assistance instead of outside ourselves. We truly can become as little children.

This is important because if we do not accept God we do not accept our own existence.

I am not speaking about the punishing and vengeful God of the Bible but the One that is omniscient (all-knowing), omnipresent (everywhere), and omnipotent (all-powerful).

If God is all of those things then there can be NOTHING outside of Him that is REAL.

He is unlike the gods of Egypt, which are only about 100 times greater than a human.

God is EVERYWHERE, not only here and there.

God is all-powerful not only just enough.

And all-knowing not just in a certain field of study.

Why can He not guide each of us in harmony with one another?

3. Jesus was the first to receive the Atonement.

Does it not stand to reason that this is so because he was the first to have the idea of separation?

This is not written anywhere that I have seen except by me. But doesn’t it make sense?

The Atonement (the undoing of error) was in place before it was needed.

Jesus, as the first to receive it, also had to be the first to need it. Therefore a lot of what we need to overcome currently came from him. So forgive him already!

When you feel tempted to get upset because Jesus is such a big deal please consider what I am presenting here and see if it does not make sense that it is crucial that each of us needs to forgive Jesus.

Maybe it would be better said we each need to forgive because he would have been the first one to imagine an existence that was outside of God’s Reign and it was his thoughts that have primarily been responsible for the history that we have found ourselves experiencing and trapped in.

Ouch! Is the world ready to hear this?

Jesus is perfect (as are we) but this does not mean he has not made mistakes in the “place of illusion” that we all find ourselves in, just like we do.

As our elder brother, he does the best he can to lead the way for us.

His opportunity for growth was to lead us out of the illusion he had seen and into the Atonement. We see some of his actions and results, yet just like for the rest of us, what we see is the “media coverage” and not what is really going on.

Let’s be sure to include Jesus in the forgiveness of the Atonement that we recognize and do not make him greater than ourselves.

At the same time, he is deserving of our attention and affection because of the devotion he has had toward us and our safe return to God, Our Father.

4. Depression

It is one of the three forms of temptation. Power-hunger and addiction are the other two from my study of the three temptations of Jesus after the fast of 40 days and nights in the New Testament.

I suggest that it is important to be aware of these and that they would literally consume the individual if God was not Who He is.

Understand that depression is a part of the illusion of separation from God and forgive it in yourself and others.

Then follow the Holy Spirit and your gut in how to self-medicate if that is what you must do.

Exercise, nature, hobbies, and breath work all can be aids. They each can become an addiction also that gets in the way of the rest of your life so you want to be aware of this.

The point is DO NOT CLAIM IT AS YOUR IDENTITY.

We know a lot of people who are in this place and I suggest that we have all been there to various degrees because of the place we have found ourselves in, regardless if it is of our own making or not.

I know that writing has done much to help me with releasing so many things. It is very therapeutic. I cannot say it would be for everyone but I know it has been for me.

I will tell you this from my own experience. You can have many different types and degrees of depression and still have the peace that the witness that God IS can bring.

It may be locked away in that childhood place where faith and hope reside but it is there within us. Do not talk yourself out of it when you find it.

Fan it with meditation and visualization. Embrace it as you are given the inspiration to do so by the Holy Spirit.

And please understand that PEACE is your inheritance as a Child of God.

“Because God IS Where We Are Is Not Real, Jesus Can Help IF We Let Him” is the title I gave this Reading.

Let’s take him off the pedestal or off the cross and see him as our elder brother who has found his way back Home and is calling us to join him.

Till next time, God bless, debi.

  • This is a Universal Reading I have been doing for over three years from the points in a book I wrote in 2019. To edit the book and put what I have learned would be like stopping a stream.
  • The Holy Spirit has enhanced my understanding of the things I wrote then and it is from this premise that I share them with you.
  • My objective is to open our minds to the possibility that what Jesus has been trying to share with us may not be so difficult after all.

Universal Reading 25 December 2022 Christ Is Here and You ARE a Part of Him That Will Help With His Healing

Love one another and love yourself. Forgiveness is key.

Photo by Brian Lundquist on Unsplash

1. You are significant to this shift. Great faith is required to understand that you must “appear to give up” your life to the Holy Spirit before you will truly gain it.

This is something that you have the capacity to embrace.

The idea of life that you now engage in is of the ego and based on principles of separation.

The Holy Spirit knows who you truly are and will lead you to that awareness.

We each must go through this experience but some will pass out of this life before that happens. No worries. It is a part of the Universal Plan.

I have chosen to be a voice of interpretation of the teachings of Jesus, especially regarding what will be required to bring about the shift that takes the Son out of the continual cycle of physical birth, suffering, and death that the belief in separation from God has given us.

If enough of us accept the challenge and will do this by facing the illusion of FEAR that comes with this process we can bring the reign of suffering to a significantly rapid demise.

There are people that have that kind of faith and whether you are in the body or disembodied* I feel that your willingness to even consider this possibility you are a significant part of this shift that we ARE capable of once we are willing to deny that there is ANYTHING about God from which we ought to be afraid.

  • * I am one who feels that within the Collective Consciousness we are able to interact in a sort of telepathic way with All That Is and I am not afraid to speak in this manner because I do not know to whom this writing is meant to reach. I only know that I am supposed to do it.
  • * I will say that there is something that is greater than a sense of urgency within me at this time. It is more like a push to speak boldly and without softening what I feel inspired to say.

2. Everything is happening NOW. There is no true past and future.

This is why accepting the Atonement NOW and Being in God’s Presence once more allows us to free ourselves from generations of shame and guilt.

Everything can be corrected!

It already has been corrected. The Awakening is our realizing this actually could never have occurred because God IS GOD and His Will is all there is.

Atonement goes beyond repentance to undoing the original error which was belief in the possibility of the Son of God being separated from God, the Father.

This is why the healing comes to pass.

However, until all accept the Atonement we will need to stand in the faithful witness of this from within that the Holy Spirit gives us and learn to separate ourselves from the stories that are going on all around us.

3. Offer compassion and gratitude to self and others.

For those who shun you for the moment hold your boundaries and understand that this protects them and you.

As we walk in the Atonement our relationships will change because we will be relying on God’s Will through the whisperings of the Holy Spirit and not on the input of other people’s opinions or traditions.

We will have peace from the Holy Spirit that circumstances in the world cannot touch and the happiness of forgiveness and joy from the knowledge that the Son is innocent. Even though we may see things about us in our peers and family members that sadden us as their costumes become more evident to us.

These costumes can manifest in many ways. Jealousy, conflict, greed, meanness, apathy, and so on.

Do not let these things overwhelm you.

Trust what you know is the truth inside of you and over time or eventually (and remember it may not be resolved in this lifetime) the healing will be accepted by all.

Remember that while bodies cannot join ALL minds WILL eventually because we truly ARE only ONE Mind as Christ along with all of creation.

4. Having joy in the moment allows you to alter the experience of the entire Christ Consciousness.

That is a lot of power!

Even if you cannot FEEL the joy at the moment because some sort of emotion needs to process through you, REMEMBER the forgiveness that you have offered up to the Whole Consciousness of Christ. It was for ALL the results of the belief in separation which would explain any “crisis” you may feel weighed down by in the moment and allow you NOT to be trapped by it.

DO NOT accept the temptation to feel that you have no influence or purpose because that is TOTALLY BOGUS and incorrect.

Even for those who have not been drawn to accept the Atonement in this lifetime serve the greater good. It is all covered within the Universal Plan of Salvation. Who you are (whether that is positive or negative in your eyes) is meant to help another on their way to the truth about who they are which leads them back home to God and Christ/Self.

These are things that I am experiencing as well and I am experiencing them so that I will be able to share these things with you and help you have the courage that will be required of those who get this incredible ball of true faith in God rolling.

Thank you for sharing this with me.

Till next time, God bless, amen.

Universal Reading 15 December 2022 Do NOT Be Afraid of What Is Coming But DO be AWARE

We have been given a road map and a guide into the evolution of consciousness.

When we will take it is up to each one of us individually.

Everyone will eventually partake in this! ❤ The Holy Spirit will gently take us through it IF we will allow Him to.

1. Understand Time.

Time, like space, food, money, and sex are constructs developed by the Son to play out His separation from the Father and project a false self-sufficiency.

Talk about diving into the deep end!

Utilized by the Father through the Holy Spirit these individually and unitedly become a metaphor for the relationship between the Father and the Son that shows what the Father offers the Son in a purified form as the Joy of His (God’s) existence.

I see this as Eternal NOW (time), fluidity (space), synergistic existence (food), creative use of all that is (money), and eternal extension (reproduction). Which would be the inheritance of the Son of God whose Father has given Him all that He is.

Time, space, food, money, reproduction/sex are each constructs set in motion as replacements for God’s Reality.

Heaven on earth will be revealed as we allow this true error to be seen.

NOT to be JUDGED, LABELED, MISUSED, or however JUSTIFIED but to be seen for the error that it was so that the Holy Spirit has a chance to show us what God, the Father intended His Son to have access to.

And NO, I am not saying that the whole of life as we know it has to be stopped right now!

I am saying that the time has come for us to accept that God did not intend for His Son to have lack or to suffer and that we, as His Son, are the ones who have chosen suffering as a component of our existence.

Jesus has shown us the way to undo this error by acceptance of the complete forgiveness of the Son of God for belief that He and God could be separated in their goals or intentions in any way, shape, or form.

2. Illness of mind and body afflict us when we accept separation from God as a REALITY.

These are ways the Son has of punishing Himself. God sees no SIN only ERROR that He has made allowance for through the Atonement and undoing of the belief that the Father would be separated from the Son.

Today we hear of mind games that rob us of our authority to KNOW GOD. Gaslighting and narcissism, years ago it was called brainwashing.

I need not describe the many ways the body presents itself as ill and diseased.

Please understand that this is not how God, the Father meant for His Son to experience existence.

Do not take this to mean that we can or should judge one another, or ourselves if we are ill.

Judgment needs to be given to the Holy Spirit who knows that we are all a part of the Christ; innocent and the Holy Spirit’s guidance will lead us to our truth as the Son of God whole, complete, and innocent once more with PERFECT TIMING. We really want to allow ourselves to trust this.

3. Each of us has a unique way of sharing the truth.

That does not mean it is a different truth.

It means that there are many ways it can be expressed.

And each is valid and vital, important to the whole understanding of the whole Sonship of Christ.

There can only be one truth.

While there are endless ways of expressing truth.

God IS is the Universal Truth that needs to be recognized because without it all less lies in chaos and in ruins.

God is bigger than any single form and so is His Son for that matter.

Without the Creator being identified as a UNIVERSAL CREATOR of ALL THAT IS there is no HOPE or PLACE for FREEDOM which is an intrinsic part of being a fractal or component of the Son of God.

4. You can use the things that you are learning to give different perspectives on old issues.

Let your world change with the new understanding that you have been given.

As your view of the world adjusts others will be lifted along with you.

Do not be afraid of change.

Only RECOGNIZE that the change that is most vitally IMPORTANT is what is going on inside of your mind; the thoughts you think establish what will be.

Think of how you desire to FEEL rather than the form that it embodies.

Safety, sovereignty, joy, peace, and participation in something larger than yourself (or your body), these are things that you want to go after.

Do not start with the form of your desire first, but let the feeling that you desire be embodied and recognized.

This will open the floodgates of Heaven and allow the shift that we are waiting for.

We are moving in the right direction, I can feel it! ❤

Till next time, God bless, debi.

Universal Reading for Christ Consciousness 5 December 2022 Atonement Corrects the Original Error

Separation from God is an impossibility as is sin.


There is a Universal Plan in the works and we are all willing participants in it.
We have a renegade few who got stuck in the addiction, power-hunger, and depression that separation from God subjected us to.
We have been given the key to turn this around. Now is the time to understand the Atonement psychology and allow its healing to pour out on humanity.

Photo by Gabriel Meinert on Unsplash

1. The first and ONLY mistake was when a tiny part of the Mind of Christ believed that He had separated from God.

Jesus received the Atonement instantaneously BUT some of us got caught in the magnetic addiction of guilt, fear, and suffering.

It was the only mistake because God didn’t provide for anything but an instant of confusion.

The fact that we have worlds, galaxies, and dimensions, not to mention all the confusion on this planet, might give someone a glimpse at the magnitude of the power of thought within the Son of God.

The point I am trying to make is that we tend to think that forgiveness involves different people and situations but it truly only applies to the original confusion of belief in the possibility of separation from God.

Surely, we can forgive Christ this error at the moment of His conception?!!! All it takes is letting go of all that you thought the world was and choosing to believe in God more than yourself for only a moment.

That may be simplistic but the correction that we need to make in our thinking IS that simple.

It helps to remember that we are acting out a story that is for the benefit of the few that are trapped in the seduction of the impossibility of being separated from God.

They think that the intense suffering they put themselves through is justified because somehow they feel free and outside of God’s “influence”.

They will eventually have their fill of suffering and look to the Father of creation and understand like the Prodigal Son that all the Father has is theirs for the asking if they will return to God’s embrace.

2. There is a Universal Plan and a Plan of Atonement which each of us will and do travel.

You cannot be forced.

This means that willingness to receive the Love that God offers and that you literally are is required.

This is the literal acceptance of your existence. And we each must partake in it in this way.

There are many paths that lead us to this understanding but this is the universal experience that must take place.

It is simply the forgiveness of the original error of belief in the possibility of separation from God.

With that one has accepted the reality of God and the innocence and purity of His Son as His Father created Him.

One also gains constant assistance from the Holy Spirit to have guidance in their daily path.

Jesus becomes a friend as well and teaches you that you can perform miracles even greater than the ones that he did because they will be eternal under his direction.

It is truly an exciting place to be!

3. I had written, “In other words, it is right to desire to know how another is.” Today I understand that how they are currently is their “story” and it is my witness of their truth that knows they are perfect as God created them that I most desire to bring to them.

That witness comes to them as I live my life with healthy boundaries. No longer seeking to fix their situations and trusting that they have the same guidance and opportunity that I have had to accept the Atonement.

This is not the same as “thinking of someone as dead and no longer a part of your life.”

In fact, while you may need to put space between you it draws you closer and within you, there is a witness that we are not separate from one another any more than we are separate from God.

4. Like any child, we are free to make mistakes as we rest in God’s Grace.

The Atonement undoes the error of belief in sin.

It would have to be possible for us to be separate from God for sin to be possible.

This is where the sense or idea of oneness brings awareness.

IF we could be separated from God there would be the possibility of sin but this is impossible.

Our oneness with God, the Father gives us comfort through so many challenges that seem to separate us. NOTE that the idea of God as a Father points to the confusion and struggle that can be family in the world of separation. It is NOT a casual thing that Jesus has taught us about our reality by using the relationship of Father and Son.

It speaks to the heart of each of us and calls to a longing and a truth that we have not, in fact, truly forgotten.

Let each of us say, “Let me be the beginning of the healing of the Son of God.” And take our part in the Atonement beside Jesus and one another so that we may experience all that is our birthright.

To God be all glory, for Christ’s sake. amen.

Till next time, God bless, amen.

Who has not had to conform or been ostracised, or yielded to poor behavior to protect yourself?

These things are in every family!

Let us take this opportunity to heal!

This is a worldwide opportunity to address issues and recognize injustices that must be put aside.

We are being sent huge messages through this story that will uncover deep wounds that NEED to come out into the open and be addressed and then let go of as we walk into greater light and understanding of ourselves and one another.

Let us believe in human dignity and the right to the pursuit of happiness for each of us without the hierarchy that we have heretofore expressed in society.

Let’s go a little deeper.

It is important for the evolution of society and consciousness to look at what is getting our attention and understand that it is a symbol, not an idol to replace God.

We make the world of form into idols of all forms when we do not remember God in all things. Then we set these idols up in a hierarchy that is not recognized by God but leaves us victim to misuse of power because individually and as a society we have allowed ourselves to think this is possible.

God has given everyone the right to pursue creative expression without lack or tyranny. There is bounty in the world enough for everyone.

It is not the story that we want to make real because we can change the story.

Every story has a message that is being sent to us as a collective in the healing of the “need for suffering.” Every story. (And yes, we currently believe that we have a need to suffer.)

We can remove this by knowing God has provided for all and no one needs to lack in anything.

It will not happen overnight but it will happen much quicker than one would have thought humanly possible because, well, we are not really human, we are eternal beings having a temporary human experience.

Till next time, God bless, debi.

A Course In Miracles Chapter 30, T30D HLCM, Beyond All Idols +

A few key things that I have learned this year in ACIM.

I studied the Lynn Hugh Cacey Manuscript of A Course In Miracles Second Edition with Annotation and Appendices by Doug Thompson in 2022. Here are my closing thoughts. (Pictured, a photo of my copy.)
.
My main thought overall is that I would rather just have the original work with its “imperfect” grammar so that the Holy Spirit can decipher what Jesus was trying to get through to me from the mind of Helen and Bill without adding another “mind” to the mix.
.
I did feel impressed to write Chapter 30 and record my impressions. I am learning right along with you. I share in the faith of gaining a better understanding of the words of Jesus.
.
(I was able to copy this section from the FIP Web Edition, and change the grammar and capitalization to match the HLCM. I then removed the numbering, sorry if it makes it confusing. I found that no words were changed or removed. Only the capitalization and a few commas needed to be added or removed. My thoughts have the Asterix *.)

T 30 D Beyond All Idols
.
T 30 D 1
Idols are quite specific. But your will is universal, being limitless. And so it has no form, nor is content for its expression in terms of form. Idols are limits. They are the belief that there are forms which will bring happiness, and that, BY limiting, is all attained. It is as if you said, “I have no need of everything. This little thing I want, and it will be as everything to me.” And this must fail to satisfy, because it IS your will that everything be yours. Decide for idols, and you ASK for loss. Decide for truth and everything is yours.
.
* Idols are that which you put before God in your thinking. They can have all kinds of forms or ideologies. In other words, they can be thoughts or concepts but bear in mind that they LIMIT.
.
* Our will has no limits, no form, and is universal.
.
* Idols are beliefs that forms of thought or physical manifestation can give us a sense of having “success” or of having reached the heights. Thus BY limiting, is ALL attained.
.
* This suggests that even our most lofty of goals; family, health, physical comfort, ARE idols. That soul mate as well. (In actuality, they are tools that the Holy Spirit and Jesus’ Team use to direct the Universal Plan for our good that ALL may be returned to Heaven and the witness of the Glory and Grace of God.)
.
* ONLY EVERYTHING will satisfy us as children of God and that can ONLY be obtained by having God first in all that we do. In every thought, every breath, every desire, every goal, every hope.
.
* This is the existence of accepting the Atonement. Layer by layer is the attachment removed. And only being a friend to ALL, a mother/father to ALL, a witness to ALL that God IS and that His Love and Holy Spirit will guide us back to Heaven’s essence where we never left HAS any sort of satisfaction.
.
T 30 D 2
It is not form you seek. What form can be a substitute for God the Father’s Love? What form can take the place of all the love in the Divinity of God the Son? What idol can make two of what is one? And CAN the limitless be limited? You do not WANT an idol. It is not your will to have one. It will not bestow on you the gift you seek. When you decide upon the form of what you want, you lose the understanding of its purpose. So you see your will within the idol, thus reducing it to a specific form. Yet this could never BE your will, because what shares in all creation cannot be content with small ideas and little things.
.
* “What idol can make two of what is one? And CAN the limitless be limited?” When I get flustered over a particular relationship, situation, or circumstance in the world even I have divided the ONE Son of God and add to the sense of illusion instead of Heaven where ALL is ONE with God.
.
* It is God that we seek because we KNOW of His Love for us (individually and as a whole) even though we have forgotten Him.
.
* Has anything truly satisfied you in life? Is there anything that is stable and secure? This is because Only God’s Love has this quality.
.

T 30 D 3
Behind the search for every idol lies the yearning for completion. Wholeness has no form because it is unlimited. To seek a special person or a thing to add to you to make yourself complete, can only mean that you believe some form is missing. And by finding this, you will achieve completion in a form you like. This is the PURPOSE of an idol; that you will not look beyond it, to the source of the belief that you ARE incomplete. ONLY if you had sinned could this be so. For sin is the idea you are alone, and separated off from what is whole. ⁸And thus it would be necessary for the search for wholeness to be made BEYOND the boundaries of limits on yourself.
.
* Completion is our goal because we lost our connection with Father. Note that God does not have a form yet there is something that makes God real. Perhaps it is the idea of God as we are an idea within God as our Creator.
.
* Does this search for completion not sound like hell to you? I prefer to believe that the Son is confused rather than believe that God created His Son to place Him in Hell and toy with Him.
.
* I would rather give up the IMAGE I have of God than the Love and commitment that I have felt from Him to His Son/me.
.
* “ This is the PURPOSE of an idol; that you will not look beyond it …” Our ego, which is fearful, feels guilty, and feels worthy of death because of the belief in separation from God, is seeking to hide its eyes from the terror that it BELIEVES is there; when all that awaits is the true Love of God that never left us at all.
.
* Am I willing to give up the “idols” in my “storyline” to see God’s Love for all of creation/ all of the Sonship? This does not mean that nothing else beyond my personal identity has existence BUT THAT everything has existence and is washed in God’s LOVE. NOT in the blood of His Son because He sinned.
.
* Please reread that last bit.
.

T 30 D 4

It never is the IDOL that you want. But what you think it offers you, you want indeed, and have the RIGHT to ask for. Nor could it be possible it be denied. Your will to be complete is but God’s will, and this is GIVEN you by being His. God knows not form. He cannot answer you in terms that have no meaning. And your will could not be satisfied with empty forms, made but to fill a gap that is not there. It is not this you WANT. Creation gives no separate person and no separate thing the power to complete the Son of God. What idol can be called upon to give the Son of God what he already has?

.

* Doing this review is giving me deeper clarity on the way I want to engage with the world. Not denying anything’s existence but seeing only love in all that I do witness. Hmm. Even in what is difficult.

.

* It is my sense and experience that as we put God first and recognize who we truly are that the challenges with others will get smaller. And that we will be able to enjoy what comes our way, whatever it is.

.

* It is not things or people we need to denounce or deny but the idea that they could ever be fulfilling in any way that God cannot. In other words, to place them before God. Or give them a value above God is what I choose to avoid.

.
* I knew quickly as a mother that I would not be allowed to embrace my children for long. I gave them everything I had to give them. And I gave them to God’s protection. I never once understood this to mean that they were not a part of me and me a part of them. The Course does not lead me to that understanding either. Instead, as before, acknowledging God allows me to feel the love we share even when it cannot be expressed. It really is something that is too large to speak of but I know that we knew each other before we came here and that we will know one another when the Son is completely healed as well.

.

T 30 D 5

Completion is the FUNCTION of God’s Son. He has no need to seek for it at all. Beyond all idols stands his holy will to be but what he is. For more than whole is meaningless. If there were change in him, if he could be reduced to any form and limited to what is not in him, he would not be as God created him. What idol can he need to be himself? For can he give a part of him away? What is not whole cannot make whole. But what is really asked for cannot BE denied. Your will IS granted. Not in any form that would content you not, but in the whole completely lovely Thought God holds of you.

.

* We complete God.

.
* God gives justification to our existence. HE ALONE IS OUR REASON FOR BEING.

.
* Yet we seek EVERYWHERE to avoid Him.

.

* Our idols cannot protect nor satisfy and neither can they block forever the witness we have of God and our true self.

.

T 30 D 6

Nothing that God knows not exists. And what He knows exists forever, changelessly. For thoughts endure as long as does the mind that thought of them. And in the Mind of God there is no ending, nor a time in which His Thoughts were absent, or could suffer change. Thoughts are not born and cannot die. They share the attributes of their creator, nor have they a separate life apart from his. The thoughts you think are in your mind, as you are in the Mind which thought of you. And so there are no separate parts in what exists within God’s Mind. It is forever one, eternally united and at peace.

.

* “For thoughts endure as long as does the mind that thought of them.” This leads me to imagine that Christ is not fully born as yet, for the Son still dreams of things that are not of God or at least appears to do so. This could be where students get the idea that you and I do not exist and it seems reasonable here, yet, God deemed that His Son WILL or DOES have life and so it is. This is the point that is being made here.

.

* Do not let the acidemia/lawyer talk throw you. “Nothing that God knows not exists.” It says simply that anything God did not create does not exist.

.
* In a manner of speaking what we create is His creation as well and it is blessed in His Essence which IS Love so anything not of that will disappear in our makeup when we accept that God IS.

.

* “ nor a time in which His Thoughts were absent, or could suffer change” Our thoughts are also IN God.

.

* Take away the concept of right and wrong and experience is all that remains. DO NOT CONFUSE this to be giving permission to do ANYTHING YOU WANT, even if it harms yourself or others.
.
* The human psyche believes itself separate from God and UNFULFILLED. This is an impossibility because you are filled with ALL THAT GOD IS.
.
* The “dark side” or that which we would keep hidden from God is not something separated from Him but are our dreams of separation and lack. Some think of it as a holograph or creation similator to give us practice and understanding of our power to create.

.

I studied the Lynn Hugh Cacey Manuscript of A Course In Miracles Second Edition with Annotation and Appendices by Doug Thompson in 2022. Here are my closing thoughts. (Post 3 of 4)
.
T 30 D 7
Thoughts seem to come and go. Yet all this means is that you are sometimes aware of them, and sometimes not. An unremembered thought is born again to you when it returns to your awareness. Yet it did not die when you forgot it. It was always there, but you were unaware of it. The Thought God holds of you is perfectly unchanged by your forgetting. It will always be exactly as it was before the time when you forgot, and will be just the same when you remember. And it is the same within the interval when you forgot.
.
* “The Thought God holds of you is perfectly unchanged by your forgetting. It will always be exactly as it was before the time when you forgot, and will be just the same when you remember. And it is the same within the interval when you forgot.”
.
* This is one of the main reasons why no one should be willing to exclude God from their existence! We NEED Him. That is the bottom line!
.
T 30 D 8
The Thoughts of God are far beyond all change, and shine forever. They await not birth. They wait for welcome and remembering. The Thought God holds of you is like a star, unchangeable in an eternal sky. So high in Heaven is it set that those outside of Heaven know not it is there. Yet still and white and lovely will it shine through all eternity. There was no time it was not there; no instant when its light grew dimmer or less perfect ever was.
.
* “So high in Heaven is it set that those outside of Heaven know not it is there.”
.
* Do not let this statement be used as a means to say that Heaven is out of our reach. Jesus is seeking to show us here that while in our ego-based fear it seems beyond our reach yet nothing could change the truth of what God knows that we are.
.
T 30 D 9
Who knows the Father knows this light, for He is the eternal sky that holds it safe, forever lifted up and anchored sure. Its perfect purity does not depend on whether it is seen on earth or not. The sky embraces it and softly holds it in its perfect place, which is as far from earth as earth from Heaven. It is not the distance nor the time that keeps this star invisible to earth. But those who seek for idols cannot know the star is there.
.
* Do you hear him saying that it is our thinking that keeps us from knowing who God knows we are?
.
* When we put anything before God it becomes an idol whether it is a person, activity, theology, or whatever.
.
T 30 D 10
Beyond all idols is the Thought God holds of you. Completely unaffected by the turmoil and the terror of the world, the dreams of birth and death that here are dreamed, the myriad of forms that fear can take; quite undisturbed, the Thought God holds of you remains exactly as it always was. Surrounded by a stillness so complete no sound of battle comes remotely near, it rests in certainty and perfect peace. Here is your one reality kept safe, completely unaware of all the world that worships idols, and that knows not God. In perfect sureness of its changelessness, and of its rest in its eternal home, the Thought God holds of you has never left the Mind of its Creator, Whom it knows as its Creator knows that it is there.
.
* Do you want to know a secret? “Beyond all idols is the Thought God holds of you.” Once you let go of the idols you will find not only yourself but the rest of the Sonship of Christ as well. You will understand that we are all connected.
.
* “Here is your one reality kept safe, completely unaware of all the world that worships idols, and that knows not God.” In other words, there is a part of you that knows this truth.
.
* Do not let this last sentence confuse you “In perfect sureness of its changelessness, and of its rest in its eternal home, the Thought God holds of you has never left the Mind of its Creator, Whom it knows as its Creator knows that it is there.”
.
* It simply means that somewhere inside your psyche you know God as God knows you.
.
T 30 D 11
Where could the Thought God holds of you exist but where YOU are? Is your reality a thing apart from you, and in a world which your reality knows nothing of? Outside you there is no eternal sky, no changeless star and no reality. The mind of Heaven’s Son in Heaven is, for there the Mind of Father and of Son joined in creation which can have no end. ⁵You have not two realities, but one. Nor can you be aware of more than one. An idol or the Thought God holds of you is your reality. Forget not, then, that idols must keep hidden what you are, not from the Mind of God, but from your own. The star shines still; the sky has never changed. But you, the holy Son of God Himself, are unaware of your reality.
.
* This is how Heaven comes to earth. By understanding that where we are is in the Mind of God which knows who we are; NOT IN FORM but in truth. This is not to say that you need not identify with form at all. It means that you can acknowledge your present form and still acknowledge God’s witness of you. THIS is what gives justification to your existence and ensures your freedom as well.
.
* “The mind of Heaven’s Son in Heaven is, for there the Mind of Father and of Son joined in creation which can have no end. ⁵You have not two realities, but one. Nor can you be aware of more than one.”
.
* I have been walking in the Atonement since February of 2020. At that time I understood that what I am experiencing in the physical world is not what is real. For a time, I did not understand if it was or if it wasn’t and it did not matter to me. Today, I take the above message to be sharing with me that my reality is in Heaven and I can know this while knowing that all that I seem to be experiencing here EXISTS there IN ITS PERFECTION. Will my understanding alter somewhat in the future? No doubt, but it will I suspect that I am on the correct path of truth.
.
* I recognize that we all are creating different realities, yet I do feel an ultimate truth exists. I call it God.
.
Thank you for sharing this with me. This concludes Chapter 30 and I have one final passage for my review of the Hugh Lynn Cacey Manuscript of A Course In Miracles.

.
For the final part of the review, I want to look at the final paragraph of the book with wording { } as I understand the teachings of Jesus and A Course In Miracles in my life.
.
Do not take anything I say as the final truth. Consider it, ponder it, and if it brings light then accept it and let it go when you learn a higher truth. This is how all experience should be, in my humble opinion. Blessings, always.
.
T 31 H 11
.
And now we say “Amen”. For Christ has come to dwell in the abode You set for Him before time was, in calm eternity. The journey closes, ending at the place where it began. No trace of it remains. Not one illusion is accorded faith, and not one spot of darkness still remains to hide the face of Christ from anyone. Thy Will is done, complete and perfectly, and all creation recognizes You, and knows You as the only Source it has. Clear in Your Likeness does the Light shine forth from everything that lives and moves in You. For we have reached where all of us are One, and we are home, where You would have us be.
.
My understanding today notes that I say it this way as one who acknowledges she has accepted the call to receive the Atonement that Jesus is leading us to in A Course In Miracles:
.
* And now we say { it is done and so it is} “Amen.” For Christ has come to {my awareness as myself where God saw me as Christ, His Son} before time was, in calm {and peaceful} eternity. The journey closes, ending at the place where it began. No trace of it remains. {All fear and chaos are removed for} not one illusion is accorded faith, and not one spot of darkness {manifested as guilt, shame, or reason to fear} still remains to hide the face of Christ {and the remembrance of God, His Creator} from anyone {who is willing to receive it}. Thy Will {God’s and the Son’s} is done, completely and perfectly, and all creation {will come to recognize God and, Christ, His Son}, and knows {God and Christ, His Son} as the only Source it has. Clear in {the Likeness of Father, God, and Christ, the Son} does the Light shine forth from everything that lives and moves in {your mind, as it beholds all creation}. For {I} have reached where all of us are One, and {I} am Home, where {God, the Father and Christ, myself, seen as all of Creation} would have us be.
.
* Each of us has the opportunity to make this journey without distance now. We will do it in time at differing times, yet at the end of time, we will all stand there together in God, the Father. I am only saying that it is possible to do this individually, now.
.
* I will be returning to the Urtext as I continue my study of ACIM. I am also reading the Cameos as recorded in the Circle of Atonement edition.
.
Thank you for sharing this time with me. Till next time, God bless, debi
