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

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.

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.

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

Universal Reading from 25 November 2022 Our Dependence Is On God Alone

One at a time we will come to understand this and as a result, society will adjust.


Photo by Markus Spiske on Pexels.com

I am finding that my understanding of the truths that I wrote of in 2019 have grown much deeper. This reading especially reflects this.

1. When new in the Atonement I thought that concern for others was my business. Today I do not feel that way.

Each of us IS a child of God. 
It is God who provides all that is needed.

For me to assume that I am to be responsible for another is to exert power and control that is not mine to begin with.

It is better to see others in the light of the creation of God and understand that they chose the journey they are taking because they wanted to experience it. And yes, that includes the challenging things as well.

This does not mean that when I have the means and am prompted by the Holy Spirit I should not act on behalf of another! 

Listening to the Holy Spirit and not the ego or society or tradition, etc is the key!

From our place in the Atonement, we will understand that we are one Son of God who is protected and blessed by Father, in Heaven. We each have ways that we lift the consciousness and it changes throughout the current lifespan of the human being. Listen to your inner guidance and follow the promptings of the Holy Spirit one step at a time. ❤ 


2. Power-hunger.

Power-hunger seeks control over some aspect of life. 

Let it be your closet instead of someone else.

I find that organizing has been a good place for me to feel a sense of control and balance. 

Doing a puzzle can give me the sense that things are not unsolvable, maybe it is baking or a sport is what empowers you.

Reach for things like this when you feel out of control.

Feeling that we have no power or control is what drives the ego craving for power. Recognize this in others as well. This will help you be able to think of creative ways to live in peace if not full harmony.

I am prompted to write that when these emotions are not dealt with it leads to forthright abuses and rape is one that comes quickly to mind.

Bearing in mind that God is the one that gives each of us our right to personal power is important. The forgiveness of the Atonement helps us see God in all things and all things as the Son of God, perfect as it was created, and guided by the Holy Spirit to remember that.

May I suggest that you think about how you want to feel and let Jesus bring it to you. He is the CEO of the Universal Plan (of the Redemption of the Son of God). Let go of how you get to feel that way (soul mate, new car, no war, etc.) and watch how the world adjusts to give you what you asked for.

This is actually what happens anyway. This choosing to identify how you want to feel and letting go of what brings this allows God’s blessings instead of the ego’s trickery that always has our downfall as its goal especially when we have a “picture” in mind that involves something outside ourselves.

Perhaps we could desire to feel peace and abundance, maybe to feel truly loved. Define it in your own words or better yet feelings. ❤


3. As we grow from infancy we tend to think “everyone thinks as I do.” It takes time to understand that each has their own path that they must follow from inside themselves.

This is nearly universal from what I have been able to observe. 

We want to recognize that there is a universal reality IN God and AS ONE that gives us freedom to be ourselves within that understanding and protected/preserved by God.

There comes a time when we understand that we are each unique and that we have the inner voice of the Holy Spirit to guide us.

As time goes on I suspect that humanity will eventually let go of the parental control hierarchy of past generations and allow freedom for all.

 Would it not be awesome if we were to think of the planet as having freedom from our misuse as well?

This, of course, includes all that exists as well. Seen and unseen, plants, animals, and so forth. Stewardship will eventually not be a need on the earth as each will have its sphere as ordained by God as it was in Heaven where there was no want or imbalance.

In fact, it is our understanding of these things that will bring Heaven to earth once more.

Freedom must be for all if it is to be for anyone. 

Understanding that we are ALL ONE and that what we each individually do affects others. Though, MORE important is understanding that what each of us THINKS does affect the WHOLE of creation that we are.

I am not suggesting “thought police”, rather , personal recognition and accountability. It will only truly be productive IF it is done within the understanding of the Atonement and this is what we want to understand.

It is the Atonement that gives us our freedom as NOTHING else will or can.


4. It is imperative that GOD be acknowledged for there to be civilized existence and true communication.

When we see the body as our existence and our focus we run the risk of eliminating God and putting the ego or a false image of ourselves in charge of ourselves and our societies.

The Holy Spirit is our inner guidance and is given to all that is. It is through His vision and communion that we truly communicate.

We can trust this.

Currently, we exist as if we are dependent on one another and this will “appear” to be the case for a while but it is God ALONE that we are dependent on. 

Humanity, as well as all of creation, will move into this understanding.


The first step to all of this evolution is to accept the Atoning (undoing of error) Forgiveness of the Atonement.

Only complete forgiveness of all that is for all time and dimensions will meet this requirement by each and every one of us.

It cannot be forced. It can only be lived and in the living of it others will be drawn to it as well.

Till next time God bless, debi.

My Thoughts* On ACIM Lesson 333 Why Wait?

Take the red pill, you have nothing to lose but what is unreal.

Lesson 333

Forgiveness ends the dream of conflict here.

1. Conflict must be resolved. ²It cannot be evaded, set aside, denied, disguised, seen somewhere else, called by another name, or hidden by deceit of any kind, if it would be escaped. ³It must be seen exactly as it is, where it is thought to be, in the reality which has been given it, and with the purpose that the mind accorded it. ⁴For only then are its defenses lifted, and the truth can shine upon it as it disappears.

2. Father, forgiveness is the light You chose to shine away all conflict and all doubt, and light the way for our return to You. ²No light but this can end our evil dream. ³No light but this can save the world. ⁴For this alone will never fail in anything, being Your gift to Your beloved Son.

(ACIM, W-333.1:1–2:4)

* True forgiveness takes you out of this world. And reveals Heaven.

* The world can no longer reach you. Like Neo, you have taken the red pill and asked to see what is really there. And there is no turning back. Even as this world becomes a glossy film that runs through your hands and is impossible to hang on to and your gut wrenches because the bacteria within your psyche wants to hold onto the illusion you have a gentle companion that affirms the truth of your identity (and theirs) as the Christ that is the Beloved Son of God.

* Justification and excuses lose their hold on your mind and heart. You are able to let the “stories”, even the pretty ones or the progressive ones, be set aside for the vision that the Holy Spirit gives you of the glory of the Son of God.

* Defenses have no more meaning. Why defend oneself against an illusion or the reality of God?

* God is the Light that reveals the truth. It undoes the confusion that the Son of God thought he had permanently trapped himself within.

* Forgiveness of the original error of separation from God across the entire Sonship through all Time and dimensions is that which reveals God. Anything less only gives you another path in the maze of diversity that the Son of God can imagine which has no limitation.
* Dare to step into the Light now. It does not get easier to do and why suffer any longer than you need to?

Till next time, God bless. debi.

My Thoughts* on ACIM Lessons 324 – 332 What Is Freedom to You?

My witness and understanding at this time.

Photo by Pixabay on Pexels.com

Lesson 324

I merely follow, for I would not lead.

1. Father, You are the One Who gave the plan for my salvation to me. ²You have set the way I am to go, the role to take, and every step in my appointed path. ³I cannot lose the way. ⁴I can but choose to wander off a while, and then return. ⁵Your loving Voice will always call me back, and guide my feet aright. ⁶My brothers all can follow in the way I lead them. ⁷Yet I merely follow in the way to You, as You direct me and would have me go.

2. So let us follow One Who knows the way. ²We need not tarry, and we cannot stray except an instant from His loving Hand. ³We walk together, for we follow Him. ⁴And it is He Who makes the ending sure, and guarantees a safe returning home.

(ACIM, W-324.1:1–2:4)

* I follow God, the Father because I do not know what to do, yet, He watches me and guides me every step in my appointed path. There is a role I have been given to perform.

* We walk with Jesus. We follow the Holy Spirit Who knows how to bring us back to Heaven and God, our Father. This is the universal eperience we each will have.
* And yes, there are any paths to get there but this IS where we are going with Jesus’ help and that that of the Holy Spirit. It is God Who makes that a guarantee.
* There is only the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit shows the Son the way back to the Father’s presence; through the guilt, shame, and fear and back to Father’s Love which is what we are made of and what is the only thing that is real.

Lesson 325

All things I think I see reflect ideas.

1. This is salvation’s keynote: What I see reflects a process in my mind, which starts with my idea of what I want. ²From there, the mind makes up an image of the thing the mind desires, judges valuable, and therefore seeks to find. ³These images are then projected outward, looked upon, esteemed as real and guarded as one’s own. ⁴From insane wishes comes an insane world. ⁵From judgment comes a world condemned. ⁶And from forgiving thoughts a gentle world comes forth, with mercy for the holy Son of God, to offer him a kindly home where he can rest a while before he journeys on, and help his brothers walk ahead with him, and find the way to Heaven and to God.

2. Our Father, Your ideas reflect the truth, and mine apart from Yours but make up dreams. ²Let me behold what only Yours reflect, for Yours and Yours alone establish truth.

(ACIM, W-325.1:1–2:2)

* “⁶And from forgiving thoughts a gentle world comes forth, with mercy for the holy Son of God, to offer him a kindly home where he can rest a while before he journeys on, and help his brothers walk ahead with him, and find the way to Heaven and to God.”

* THIS is what one sees when one has accepted the Atonement. NOT when you look for things to forgive or for things to go well; such as, a body, relationship, or wallet staying healthy to prove you are righteous.

* TRUTH “2. Our Father, (God) Your ideas reflect the truth, and mine apart from Yours but make up dreams.”

* MY PRAYER and goal over six decades with my share of stumbling but a constant witness of this. “²Let me behold what only Yours reflect, for Yours and Yours alone establish truth.”
….

* “⁶And from forgiving thoughts a gentle world comes forth, with mercy for the holy Son of God, to offer him a kindly home where he can rest a while before he journeys on, and help his brothers walk ahead with him, and find the way to Heaven and to God.” Lesson 325 (tomorrow’s Lesson in the Workbook)
.
* THIS is what one sees when one has accepted the Atonement. NOT when you look for things to forgive or for things to go well; such as a body, relationship, or wallet staying healthy to prove you are righteous.
.
* You have mercy because you see a son of God confused and struggling.
.
* It is possible to enter Heaven now and hold that witness here on earth in the flesh in full communion with God and His complete devotion to His Son.
.
* You may not look different or feel the ecstasy that we will feel physiologically in His full presence eventually which is not that far from a full-body orgasm that we could not withstand while in the flesh, but we will have a firm conviction of the truths that the Holy Spirit bears witness of. The first being that God IS.

Lesson 326

I am forever an Effect of God.

1. Father, I was created in Your Mind, a holy Thought that never left its home. ²I am forever Your Effect, and You forever and forever are my Cause. ³As You created me I have remained. ⁴Where You established me I still abide. ⁵And all Your attributes abide in me, because it is Your Will to have a Son so like his Cause that Cause and Its Effect are indistinguishable. ⁶Let me know that I am an Effect of God, and so I have the power to create like You. ⁷And as it is in Heaven, so on earth. ⁸Your plan I follow here, and at the end I know that You will gather Your effects into the tranquil Heaven of Your Love, where earth will vanish, and all separate thoughts unite in glory as the Son of God.

2. Let us today behold earth disappear, at first transformed, and then, forgiven, fade entirely into God’s holy Will.

(ACIM, W-326.1:1–2:1)

* God is my Cause. Not my parents or my children. Not even my partner, God is my Cause.

.

* This IS all acheivable on this side of the veil.

Lesson 327

I need but call and You will answer me.

1. I am not asked to take salvation on the basis of an unsupported faith. ²For God has promised He will hear my call, and answer me Himself. ³Let me but learn from my experience that this is true, and faith in Him must surely come to me. ⁴This is the faith that will endure, and take me farther and still farther on the road that leads to Him. ⁵For thus I will be sure that He has not abandoned me and loves me still, awaiting but my call to give me all the help I need to come to Him.

2. Father, I thank You that Your promises will never fail in my experience, if I but test them out. ²Let me attempt therefore to try them, and to judge them not. ³Your Word is one with You. ⁴You give the means whereby conviction comes, and surety of Your abiding Love is gained at last.

(ACIM, W-327.1:1–2:4)

* Journaling has allowed me to see the Hand of God in my life. Answered prayers and unanswered ones show me His Love. “²For God has promised He will hear my call, and answer me Himself.”

* “Let me but learn from my experience that this is true …” Do not cut out God because of what some person has done or said. Look at your own life and ask to see Him there. He will reveal Himself to you.

* “… I will be sure that He has not abandoned me and loves me still, awaiting but my call to give me all the help I need to come to Him.” He is there for you. I know this because He has proven over and over that He is there for me.

* “if I but test them out …” IF. IF. IF.

* You have to make the effort to know that God is there. You have to be willing to have God there for you. It will not be forced on you even though NOTHING that you could do or say could or would remove Him from you.

Lesson 328

I choose the second place to gain the first.

1. What seems to be the second place is first, for all things we perceive are upside down until we listen to the Voice for God. ²It seems that we will gain autonomy but by our striving to be separate, and that our independence from the rest of God’s creation is the way in which salvation is obtained. ³Yet all we find is sickness, suffering and loss and death. ⁴This is not what our Father wills for us, nor is there any second to His Will. ⁵To join with His is but to find our own. ⁶And since our will is His, it is to Him that we must go to recognize our will.

2. There is no will but Yours. ²And I am glad that nothing I imagine contradicts what You would have me be. ³It is Your Will that I be wholly safe, eternally at peace. ⁴And happily I share that Will which You, my Father, gave as part of me.

(ACIM, W-328.1:1–2:4)

* I personally am very autonomous but that is not because I deny God but because I lean on Him and have continued to do so more and more these 60 some years. It aggrivates others at times but I believe it has served me and the Bible says to trust not in the arm of flesh but in God, the Father. This is what I have tried to do even though I fell very short of it over the years.

* I think that this is a confusing issue because of our refusal to accept the Atonement that would give us our freedom while giving us our oneness as well.

* “There is no will but Yours.” I find this powerful! I want to plant this seed in my thought garden and watch it grow.

* “³It is Your Will that I be wholly safe, eternally at peace.”

* This is the witness that I want to remind myself of when things seem challenging so that I understand that nothing outside of this could be real to begin with. As I do this often other things just fall away.

* However, we are in a Universal Plan and I may have committed to a role that would benefit others that might seem outside of this truth. That does not need to break my confidence in His Will being for my good.
* Instead, I want to practice gratitude in all things KNOWING that whatever is going on serves my highest good and that of my brethren.

Lesson 329

I have already chosen what You will.

1. Father, I thought I wandered from Your Will, defied it, broke its laws, and interposed a second will more powerful than Yours. ²Yet what I am in truth is but Your Will, extended and extending. ³This am I, and this will never change. ⁴As You are One, so am I one with You. ⁵And this I chose in my creation, where my will became forever one with Yours. ⁶That choice was made for all eternity. ⁷It cannot change, and be in opposition to itself. ⁸Father, my will is Yours. ⁹And I am safe, untroubled and serene, in endless joy, because it is Your Will that it be so.

2. Today we will accept our union with each other and our Source. ²We have no will apart from His, and all of us are one because His Will is shared by all of us. ³Through it we recognize that we are one. ⁴Through it we find our way at last to God.

(ACIM, W-329.1:1–2:4)

* I am one with God, the Father. Through Him I know myself as ALL of creation. This I will remember NOW.

Lesson 330

I will not hurt myself again today.

1. Let us this day accept forgiveness as our only function. ²Why should we attack our minds, and give them images of pain? ³Why should we teach them they are powerless, when God holds out His power and His Love, and bids them take what is already theirs? ⁴The mind that is made willing to accept God’s gifts has been restored to spirit, and extends its freedom and its joy, as is the Will of God united with its own. ⁵The Self which God created cannot sin, and therefore cannot suffer. ⁶Let us choose today that He be our Identity, and thus escape forever from all things the dream of fear appears to offer us.

2. Father, Your Son can not be hurt. ²And if we think we suffer, we but fail to know our one Identity we share with You. ³We would return to It today, to be made free forever from all our mistakes, and to be saved from what we thought we were.

(ACIM, W-330.1:1–2:3)

* The Holy Spirit brings these words alive in our hearts. They are not words that can be understood intellectually alone.

Lesson 331

My thoughts* on ACIM Lesson 131:
.
There is no conflict, for my will is Yours.
.
1. How foolish, Father, to believe Your Son could cause himself to suffer! ²Could he make a plan for his damnation, and be left without a certain way to his release? ³You love me, Father. ⁴You could never leave me desolate, to die within a world of pain and cruelty. ⁵How could I think that Love has left Itself? ⁶There is no will except the Will of Love. ⁷Fear is a dream, and has no will that can conflict with Yours. ⁸Conflict is sleep, and peace awakening. ⁹Death is illusion; life, eternal truth. ¹⁰There is no opposition to Your Will. ¹¹There is no conflict, for my will is Yours.
.
2. Forgiveness shows us that God’s Will is One, and that we share it. ²Let us look upon the holy sights forgiveness shows today, that we may find the peace of God. ³Amen.
.
(ACIM, W-331.1:1–2:3)

* Love and peace. These are our core realities. Only inside will they be found even though the world currently teaches that they are to be found outside ourselves.
.
* Life is eternal truth. In our addictions and familiarity to chaos it may be difficult to think of a life without fear, without conflict so we have that inner guidance of the Holy Spirit that shares with us inside the feeling of the truthfulness of these words. Only this miracle of God’s Love could touch us here.
.
* Forgiveness, as understood by the Atonement, which is an understanding that the belief in separation from God was a temporary mistake opens the way for the human mind to begin to accept that God’s Love could be real and that His Son is safe within the Mind of the Father.
.
* This is what offers us peace and joy that cannot be touched by the circumstances or events of the world we think we are living in.
.
* To God I give all glory, in the Name of Christ, with gratitude to Jesus who led me to this place of understanding with the helping hands of so many throughout my life powered by the Grace of God, Amen.

Lesson 332

Fear binds the world. Forgiveness sets it free.

.

1. The ego makes illusions. ²Truth undoes its evil dreams by shining them away. ³Truth never makes attack. ⁴It merely is. ⁵And by its presence is the mind recalled from fantasies, awaking to the real. ⁶Forgiveness bids this presence enter in, and take its rightful place within the mind. ⁷Without forgiveness is the mind in chains, believing in its own futility. ⁸Yet with forgiveness does the light shine through the dream of darkness, offering it hope, and giving it the means to realize the freedom that is its inheritance.

.

2. We would not bind the world again today. ²Fear holds it prisoner. ³And yet Your Love has given us the means to set it free. ⁴Father, we would release it now. ⁵For as we offer freedom, it is given us. ⁶And we would not remain as prisoners, while You are holding freedom out to us.

(ACIM, W-332.1:1–2:6)

* It is curious how the Course lessons are written to a collective that has accepted what is shared as if it were completed.
.
* At the same time, there is an interesting revealing that comes into the consciousness of the individual who lives day to day with the companionship of the Holy Spirit and the teachings of A Course In Miracles.
.
* Forgiveness of the original error of the belief in separation from God loosens the mind from the constraints of obligation and responsibility for others as well as guilt for one’s own behavior. That does not mean that you do not try to do your best. It means that you understand that there is no way for you to understand where others are and the best that you can do is listen to the Holy Spirit and trust that all is being done for the highest good and that if mistakes are made they are forgiven in this place of confusion.
.
* At this point, to me, that is freedom.

Thank you for sharing this reading with me. debi.

My thoughts* on Lesson 323

I gladly make the “sacrifice” of fear.
.
1. Here is the only “sacrifice” You ask of Your beloved Son; You ask him to give up all suffering, all sense of loss and sadness, all anxiety and doubt, and freely let Your Love come streaming in to his awareness, healing him of pain, and giving him Your Own eternal joy. ²Such is the “sacrifice” You ask of me, and one I gladly make; the only “cost” of restoration of Your memory to me, for the salvation of the world.
.
2. And as we pay the debt we owe to truth,—a debt that merely is the letting go of self-deceptions and of images we worshipped falsely—truth returns to us in wholeness and in joy. ²We are deceived no longer. ³Love has now returned to our awareness. ⁴And we are at peace again, for fear has gone and only love remains.
.
(ACIM, W-323.1:1–2:4)
.
* “You ask him to give up all suffering, all sense of loss and sadness, all anxiety and doubt, and freely let Your Love come streaming in to his awareness, healing him of pain, and giving him Your Own eternal joy.”
.
* I give up belief that anything of this world that feels like suffering is REAL. This is why I walk in peace and eternal joy when I am fully aware of the drama that life can present to our senses.
.
* “… the only “cost” of restoration of Your memory to me …” I GLADLY choose to REMEMBER that GOD IS. This is NOT a cost but a blessing that has no bounds, no limitations, and nothing but abundance.
.
* “³Love has now returned to our awareness.”
.
* GOD and the LOVE that HE IS has now returned to our awareness. This is crucial to understanding this truth.
.
* “⁴And we are at peace again, for fear has gone and only love remains.”
.
* And we are at peace again, for GOD has replaced fear as our reality and only God’s Love remains as our truth.
.
To God be all glory, in the Name of Christ, amen.
.
Till next tie, God bless, debi.

Universal Reading 13 November 2022 Relax and Let the Holy Spirit Direct You In All Things.

Things really are going okay. One step at a time.

1. Post Traumatic Separation symptoms do subside over time and diligence to the Atonement.

As long as you stay teachable by the Holy Spirit you will be led out of the state of suffering and while you will still be an observer you will have joy because you know that this does not need to be. It increases and alters your experience over time.

To not let go of the concepts of the Atonement is key which are forgiveness of the whole of Christ, and gratitude for all that you experience. Remembering the Holy Spirit and God’s guidance should be understood without saying.

This does not mean that you will not feel distress when communications are not open with humanity because they are not as long as God and the Holy Spirit are left out of the equation.

I know from experience that it does become more and more manageable.

2. Illness of mind and body has to do with the grand scheme of the Universal Plan. Though it is influenced greatly by our belief in separation from God and the understanding that all of creation is one within Him.

It is not for us to judge others and their stories.

We are to see the Holy Spirit’s judgment and He knows that all is as God created it and nothing has changed from that.

We each get to work out our own salvation. Though to help others when we are able is important.

There are reasons for all that occurs here that we are not aware of and all of it may and will be used by the Holy Spirit to bring the Son of God back into the fullness of His Father.

3. Think of God first and think of the body as an instrument for the Voice of God.

The body is not your identity. When it is it becomes an idol that replaces God in your mind.

Nor is the body anyone else’s identity.

When we judge others for physical status we show our own idol worship and need to look inside to remedy that.

4. As a child you will make mistakes within the dream of separation even while you stand constantly in the Grace of God.

Do not be afraid of making mistakes.

Be gentle with yourself and give others the same courtesy.

To God be all glory, in the Name of Christ, amen.
