Forgiveness for the belief in Separation from God is something we all need.
We All Have a Friend In Jesus Because He Lifts Us To the Father As We Do For Him
If he had not believed in the separation he would be here among us.
He may have even been the one who began it, hence, he is the “alpha and omega”, the “beginning and the end”. And yet…
If I wanted to feel alone.
Where would I go?
To the place where the voices
say we are one
and none resonate that in their
compassion and words.
I would find a multitude
to tell me how divine we are
and yet exemplify that only one way is correct.
I would hear the words of love
and feel the hollow echo of empty chasms.
I would hear the words “come unto me” and
find cold, bitter, winds of vengeance and
recall of the illusion of separation.
I would look outside of myself
and be lost.
Inside I know differently.
Inside I know peace.
Inside I know hope.
Inside I know promise.
Inside I know creation.
Inside I know that circumstance does not define.
Inside I know that truth is full of joy and exquisite delight.
Inside I know that God IS.
Is there anything that I require but this knowledge?
Companions lead us to that witness and
in this, I know Jesus as my friend.
For he tells me of his witness of the Father
and I believe.
The Holy Spirit walks with me and
bears witness this is so.
Circumstances come and go.
Babies are born.
Still the stillness inside
Because I have taken the words of Jesus
into my heart and made them mine.
There is nothing I can offer you or anyone
that is greater
than the invitation
in this, I know Jesus as my friend.
There is nothing I can offer you or anyone
that is greater
than the invitation
*Till next time, God bless, bye for now.
Not even you.
We make the decision to acknowledge our relationship with God and all that is.
We can either receive His witness via the Holy Spirit.
Or we can fight it.
The choice is ours, though the reality is that we are His.
It is up to us how long we stay in the attitude that we must have suffering and lack.
Despite what appearances may be in our lives.
May we know in our hearts that we are His, and His assistance will be given.
We like to think that we are the only creatures who make up the Son of God.
But there is a lot more to Christ than meets the eye.
It is my suspicion that humanity is the destination, in the mind of Christ, that manifests the “cream of the crop”.
The ones that have shown the dedication and focus to be able to put “Humpty Dumpty” back together again.
I know that it looks like we could not be more mixed up and incapable of taking care of one another and our planet, much less, galaxies without number, but this is exactly what I am proposing here.
And with that, here is our reading for November 16–22, 2020.
Give thanks to God. Show compassion and courtesy to one another.
All gifts come from God. Period.
I do not care who delivered them or who thought them up, they all come from God.
Quit paying homage to yourself and your peers.
Say thank you to the one who brings the gift, but acknowledge from whom it comes, which is God, Our Father.
Then be kind and tolerant of one another.
Give each other the space to breathe.
Be as honest as you can to yourself and to each other. And do not think that means spilling your guts.
It means being aware. Having eyes that see and ears that hear.
It begins with recognizing yourself as a Child of God who does not have an absent parent.
The Atonement knows that PTSD has no lasting effect. It may cause distress, but it is only for a moment, like a fearful jump when you are startled. Peace is your true identity.
We make up the world as a collective. “External conditions are produced by the thoughts of many, not all of whom are pure in heart as yet.” page 47 Urtext of A Course In Miracles 610-page pdf
And “Mental health is INNER peace.” (same ref. place)
Peace must be found inside and it is possible to do so in the worst of circumstances once one understands that this is an illusion and that the Son of God is Whole, Healed, Perfect, and Cherished by the Father.
And do not forget, that is you. And your neighbor as well.
We live in separate worlds, only in the ego. In the Atonement, we live as individual, autonomous beings, worthy and capable of existing in a world/body of similar entities.
Freedom is something that happens inside, just like peace.
It is found in the Atonement that witnesses that we are all one and that there is nothing to forgive because anything contrary to the will of God has no truth in it.
No matter how real it seems today.
So, breath, and move forward, whatever that means for you.
And smile, when you can! It gets easier, trust me! 🙂 ❤
We are in the process of accepting a 5th-dimensional attitude that understands that the confusion, chaos, and suffering of the world was a result of the error of separation and is not the truth of existence.
All those sore spots, whether they are from childhood or a dysfunctional partner, trapped in delusional thinking in the many cults of society. Be they from past lives or entities beyond this realm, they are all part of the confusion that put Christ into a belief in lack and tyranny.
He is ready to step into a place where His dreams are willing to work on His behalf and where the desire is the Awakening above all else.
It is a place where Christ is realized and His Father is recognized as the giver of life and all that is good.
It is not a religion, it is a psychological witness of our truth as being connected to all that is and ever will be and knowing that we were not created by our own power.
Only in this fashion can we move forward into our identity as Saviors in all the other multitudes of galaxies that await their deliverance through our witness of the truth.
The truth that we are all ONE and that the Creator has never left us, nor have we left him. We can find that witness only in the Atonement because only in the Atonement may we stand aware of our flesh and of the various forms of distress in the world and know that none of it could even be in our imaginations without the Error of Separation.
Only when all of Christ is awakened will the glorious day of reunion with the Father in full glory be realized for any of us.
In the meantime, we may be blessed with the peace that passes understanding if we will step into the Atonement and live our lives by the guidance of the Holy Spirit within us.
Our Creator meant for us to have joy and delight in creation.
We can do this!
Till next time, God bless, bye for now.

This Week Feels Like It May Be The Eye of the Storm
But at least I can write again. One step at a time.
Now, you all know that I am just doing what I have to, to stay afloat in this world that is getting curious-er by the moment, right?
I can only write what my heart feels at the time and I do my best to make it uplifting and see that it is done with the integrity of the Spirit within me.
It is going to sound different to you because everybody lives in their own world that they have created in their minds.
Because of that we should not take it lightly when we are able to interact with others in a positive light. That is something that we need to give thanks for, imho.
Thank you for spending a few moments for reflection with me.
This is the reading from November 8th to the 15th.
Everything at once, all is NOW! Any action releasing His Story impacts NOW!
Forgiveness will release so many things.
If you can release the need for vengeance, revenge, blame, shame, and all the rest that weighs us down you have given yourself and the rest of the world a great gift.
You do have to accept where others are and be mindful of that.
If they are trapped in those negative things we just want to love them from a safe distance.
Remember the past like a comedy show, or a horror show if that is what it was, but do your best to see it for the illusion that it is in the construct of a mind gone delirious because it believes it has left its source of strength.
Because that is what our lives are at the moment as we believe that we have fallen or separated from God.
I sometimes find myself talking in the voice of the other person to have the outcome I desire. I let it flow and there is always the concept that they appreciate what I am trying to do on some level. What happens is that it lets the emotion that I am struggling with calm down.
Writing, nature, visualizations, these all can help as we let our hearts know that we are in a safe and loving place. Use the tools that come to mind and do not be afraid to ask your angels to recommend some.
Though PTSD will not leave in this existence (at least not permanently) that is a good thing because it alerts us to our error of the belief in separation and that is how we want to see it. The Atonement is what makes it bearable.
It can serve as a reminder that God would not leave us in a place of sorrow or distress.
Wait, what am I saying there?
I am saying that we could see sadness as a gift and we could express it and share it in that way, if we were standing in the Atonement where we know we are all One and that God has not forsaken or forgotten us because we have left Him.
This will not mean you do not have challenges. It means you will not be overwhelmed by them and that they will lift quicker.
It is similar to how the sting of death is not quite so bitter when you know that you cannot die. Your body will complete its mission but you continue on. (Not as a ghost, as a fully functional consciousness to create further experiences.)
Thinking of sorrow or stress and its reprecussions as a gift may seem like a kick in the backside if you are having nightmares from a tragic incident but I assure you that from the place of the Atonement this would be a real possibility. It gives you something to hold onto when the whole world caves in.
I would think that seeing PTSD as the gift that it is would certainly give the people who understand Law of Attraction and Oneness a way to honor their witness in the world of suffering as well as those that they interact with that do not have those understandings as yet.
And for those who do not understand and say that you should get over it or shove it off, that is not for them to decide. Your path is yours alone and others do not have a right or reason to question it.
You are not separate. Bash another, you bash yourself. Lift another you lift yourself.
Seems pretty straightforward doesn’t it?
I find myself putting myself down, especially as a mother of adult children.
Let’s see, how many flaws do I have?
Sometimes it is a bit unrealistic and sometimes you just have to say “Yes, I was a lousy mom.” There is a difference between stating a fact and beating yourself up about it or anythings else.
Own up to your personal weaknesses.
We all have them.
And then have a good belly laugh! Hahahahaha!
And give yourself a hug!
Now, remember to do that for others that push your buttons and mess with your head. ❤
You can use the things that you are learning to give all of creation a different perspective on life.
Now would be a good time to write that book that you have been putting off.
Somewhere in the cosmos there is someone who needs to hear about life from your perspective.
Seriously, and one of the most important people just might be you.
You would be surprised at what writing a book can do.
There is a sense of accomplishment.
There is also an incredible amount of inner growth that comes from putting in written form what is swirling around in your mind.
And do not be surprised if it does not open the door to a new side of you.
You will grow and develop at a super-warp speed if you commit to journaling or finding a way to put down your deepest thoughts.
Do not worry about making lots of money from it, though, I suppose that can still be done in the world. However you choose to do it, just get to it! You will be glad that you did!
Could 2020 be the year of the explosion of the written word?
PS If it fits, use it. If it doesn’t that’s cool! Whatever you do be kind to yourself!
So glad you joined me!
Till next time, God bless, bye for now!
To exit “The Matrix”, we have to let go of the story of our lives, and history. “See” their impossibility, and acknowledge At-One-Meant. The Atonement Is NOW.
From a reading for October 26-November 1st
Power-Hunger will use manipulation to see that you comply with their view of the world.
It is manipulative and coniving.
It can be found behind a smile or even in an embrace.
We need to be able to see it in ourselves when we do not allow others to have a voice and a view or idea or opinion.
Accepting the Atonement is the number one goal of this existence.
Only the Atonement understands what freedom is because it gives it to everyone and not just one individual or one group.
The Atonement would have room not only for freedom and tolerance for every sentient being on the earth but for every being outside of earth as well.
When we meet, we want to meet in awareness and the mindset of the Atonement. This means if meeting together causes a sense of division let it go.
When meeting with others when we stand in the witness of the Atonement we acknowledge them and are willing to allow them to be heard and to express where they are right at this moment.
I want to speak of that quote “Where two or more are gathered, there God is.”
I declare that is referring to bodies and bodies are not real and cannot be “in God”. Only our minds and hearts can be in remembrance of God.
And all it takes is ONE INDIVIDUAL’s MIND to connect to the Whole of Christ and influence it.
That is why worldwide prayer and meditation unites us and is effective because the power is sent in our thoughts and intentions.
This shows that we are connected, gathered, and together in the mind, our thoughts as nothing else can.
Taking care of me represents taking care of the Whole.
This would suggest that perhaps meditation alone would be a greater influence than being a professional speaker to thousands IF ONE IS IN THE CORRECT RIGHTMINDEDNESS of the Atonement.
And we can be there in all that we do.
It is in our hearts and minds that we can stand for what we believe.
Here God will be welcomed and His power and guidance will be felt.
This is my witness, in the name of Jesus for Christ’s sake, amen.
I just want to hunker down and breathe.
It is powerful, and there is a part of me that just wants to go into hibernation, as far as the world goes, and stay in my witness that God is in charge.
Little things have been going amiss here at home. I had a couple of deaths in family and what felt like family. But I am not allowed to mourn with others. Then again, mourning really is a singular occupation because we each process it differently.
Self-maintenance has been my lifestyle.
I know serving, and I enjoy it, but I find that self-care is what is required of me lately.
And that will be enough.
To hold steady in my witness of the atonement in a world that seems so distraught is valuable in and of itself.
Forgiving the hysteria and confusion that we find ourselves in and grateful for those who reach out to lift our communities and spirits.
I want to follow the prompting to send a cheerful note to a lady that I know is shut in at a care center and not able to have the regular visits of her son.
Following those promptings allows us to lift others and ourselves at the same time.
Here is the belated reflection that I did for this past week (19th-25th) and what I learned:
Once we understand the atonement ourselves, we want to understand each other so that we can help clear away their feelings of unworthiness of the joy being offered by the universe.
That is the offering that I extend to you as I write my posts.
We do this as we live our lives as fully as possible following the promptings of the Spirit within us.
We each have individual and specific gifts for the time that we live in. We can choose not to use them or recognize them, but we each have them.
To stand in the witness of the atonement and forgive the error of separation and all the consequences that come from that error is huge and is enough to change the world.
Beyond this there is something that each of us has that can be offered to the world. It may be something that looks solely like self care. If it is done with the witness that we are all one. Can that be a bad thing?
Some of the greatest talents that have ever been have been outliers. People willing to do what they do because of an inner drive, not for show or wages or recognition.
Follow your inner guide and embrace the magic of whoever you are in this incarnation because you bless us ALL when you do.
Time was given by God to humanity to clear up the error of separation and betrayal, and to clear the consequential guilt, because none of it is possible.
Time will disappear in the way that we look at it today, as we step into the atonement and embrace the miracle of forgiveness found within it.
The atonement truly erases all sorrows and offenses, past and future, because it dwells only in love.
Guilt creates the fear that locks us into a state of future and gives us a past that we fear we will be punished for.
Remove guilt through the atonement and you live in an eternal NOW.
That is the only way to heal what is wrong with society, anything else is only a bandage that will need to be replaced over and over because it cannot heal what ails our souls.
As you bash others, you bash yourself. And vice versa. Yet, we do not bash anything other than the monsters our egos believe we have created in our fearful state. Uplift others and you uplift yourself.
I know, you can say “but what about so and so who did such and such”?
That, you want to let go of.
Now, I know you have to live in the world, and while others demand to live from the ego, you will need to keep a safe physical and psychological distance.
Yet, while doing so, you are able to stand in the witness of the truth of the atonement and know that they are loved and a part of yourself whatever their ego manifestations may be.
You can also stand in assurance that there will come a time when they realize the atonement as well and will be able to stand beside you in that witness.
Do not let what you see define what you believe!
You have an inner witness of truth and Wholeness. Lean into that. Let it comfort you and bring you peace.
This is my hope and prayer for you, in the name of Jesus, for Christ’s sake, amen.
Please bring the Spirit for translation.
Jesus was the first consciousness of this fake world. That means he got the full benefit of the Law of Attraction FIRST.
And yes, that is how this world works, by Law of Attraction.
However, everyone here has at some point accepted the Universal Plan which leads to the Atonement that Jesus manifested with the Father/Creator, while under the influence of belief in the Error of Separation.
Everyone. Even the angels, aliens, multidimensional beings and anything else, because this/they are still all part of the oneness that is Christ.
That is is all that there is, you know.
Christ. Well, Christ and God, the Father.
Holy Spirit is that “appendage” which unites the two while in this hallucination/dream state.
Jesus, being the one who remembers the most what it was like to be in the presence of Father, in fact, he is the only one who had consciousness in that sphere/place/space/reality.
The rest of us gained consciousness after the Error of Separation had begun.
In Jesus, the Father corrected the mistake, and since that “time” Jesus has been trying, without much success, in my opinion, to get us to understand the Error and its consequences.
The ego which has divided itself into numbers, seemingly without end, creatively expressing unending examples of consequences of Separation.
These are only in the imagination of Christ and can be healed only through the Atonement.
Why has Jesus not succeeded in his attempt to redeem humanity? Because he had to “grow into” the atonement himself. He had to go through the various steps of manipulation, coercion, offering rewards, and all other variables, till he understood the atonement itself was something he could not give away, nor could he force it in any way on his brothers and sisters in the divided mind of Christ. He is the god of all philosophies and religions attempting to reach the Souls of his brethren.
Sisters came after the construct of the Error of Separation began as a way to extend the ego falsehood of existence without God.
That does not mean they are evil any more than Christ is. That is an impossibility. But the ego and the Universal Plan does see things in black and white/ right and wrong. And remember, Jesus was the Architect of the Universal Plan.
I am not proposing Christianity, as it has been understood, at all.
I am suggesting that this is what Jesus meant through his various attempts to reach out to the part of Christ Consciousness that accepted the Separation.
From my studies I do not believe that all parts therein accepted the Separation. I think there was a limited number of us who did.
In the Urtext of A Course In Miracles, Jesus states that angels could not correct the situation, nor could those who did not succumb to the Error of Separation.
It is only by the witness of the satiation of suffering that humanity has a chance to accept the atonement and by its own choice receive its rightful inheritance.
Jesus says it only takes one to start the ball rolling.
Will it be you?
I am hoping with all I am that it is me. It would give purpose to the suffering that I witness while feeling my hands are tied behind my back.
There is a sense of having lived enough lifetimes to walk into this story I have been given. With assistance at every turn, being awake enough to sense the pain and suffering, without being fatally (physically or psychologically) overcome.
Looking, with an eye single to the glory of God, while believing that I was important enough to Him that He allowed Jesus to accompany me and hold my hand along the way. This has been my journey and I will to walk it as He guides. (I did not miswrite that comment. Jesus speaks of will as something more intricate and a part of us than choice.)
Each of those components would be required to be able to face what Christ has conjured in His delirium. Why? Because the futility of it, with full awareness, allows the mind to consider the impossible idea that his just could not be real.
Each one of us need not face that test. It is possible for us to have faith in another’s testimony and still receive the witness of the Atonement for ourselves.
I have accepted that challenge from Jesus example. I invite you to do likewise. Those with the courage to do so, assist all others they have come across in their lifetimes.
This brings me to the second point. That Self-Acceptance is required to accept the Atonement that will bring about the conclusion of the Universal Plan and put us into a creative reality, instead of solely a healing one.
Jesus has mastered this and accepted the Atonement whereby heaven is united with the hallucinatory state of Christ. However, because he is not the only part of Christ that accepted the Error of Separation, he can only manifest his part of the healing and be an example to the rest of us.
Each of us needs to do this for ourselves.
Letting go of guilt is a key part to that.
We can exchange time for eternity by releasing guilt. And the joy that results lifts the Whole of Christ Consciousness.
“Guilt feelings are the PRESERVERS of time. They induce fears of FUTURE retaliation or abandonment, and thus ensure that the future will remain like the past. This IS the ego’s continuity, and gives it a false sense of security through the belief that you cannot escape from it. But you can and you MUST. God offers you the continuity of eternity in exchange. When you will to make this exchange, you will simultaneously exchange guilt for peace, viciousness for love, and pain for joy.” Words from Jesus, page 136 Urtext A Course In Miracles.
It is not as simple as releasing the guilt of the ego. One must step into our true identity as Christ, as did Jesus, by recognizing the ego’s errors are Christ’s Story and not ours.
Was that confusing!??? I expected so.
I received this witness upon awakening a few days ago:
“To escape the illusion we must become Christ so we may forgive ourselves as we truly are. It is His Story and it needs to be forgiven, NOT from our perspective in the ego or our current identity, but from Christ’s perspective and identity. We must forgive Christ as Christ for the healing to be secure. This is what Jesus has been able to do and invites us to join him.”
Also, forgiving Jesus is key as he is the architect of this world and the one who gives us our roles in it.
We each have believed in a “false” reality.
Only the Atonement allows us to give it up fully.
It is available, NOW.
It is what makes NOW, possible.
Beyond the veil or here in the flesh, we have the ability to “see” the Son of God and the perfect relationship that He has with the Father.
Let us do our part, one at a time, rejoicing in the Whole that we are.
From this place let us mingle/merge with God via All That IS.
Till next time, God bless, bye for now.
Bring the Spirit for translation please.
There is no PTSD in the fullness of Atonement, yet, WHILE HERE in the midst of accepting the Atonement one by one, WE WILL EACH have a form of PTSD. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
What is the stress? Belief in Separation and its Consequences. We are all subject to this or we would not be here.
The fullness of Atonement will be when each and every individual cell in the body of Christ knows it is not separated from God or the rest of the body.
That will require some time.
In the meantime, we will have various degrees of PTSD because one part of the body of Christ being “out of sync” affects the whole in some way or another.
In other words, do not freak out about it or consider yourself unwell.
It will eventually pass when we all/each accept who we truly are.
Till then we have many tools and entities on this side of the veil and the other to assist us.
In the Atonement we focus on ourselves and our inner voice/Holy Spirit. At the same time we are distinctly aware of others, especially of suffering.
Some call this being an Empath. Having a sense of others difficulties or other feelings.
This is to be understood because the Other, is a part of me/Christ/the Whole as well.
I do not want to seek to be of service or interact on any other level.
When I do I am nothing but bait for someone else’s inflamed ego and used as something to project their anger on or their belief that they are being attacked.
I cannot alter their interpretation, but I can alter my participation in it and give them space to express their frustrations while keeping my distance and respecting myself.
Could it be that this is what the manifestation of Covid19 is all about on a spiritual level?
Could it not be our linked subconscious, or maybe our superconscious, that is demanding that a healthy relationship be nurtured in the psyche of humanity?
This is one thing that the Error of Separation did to the psyche of Christ.
There is a common idea lately that we can just leave others; bear in mind, that they still are a part of us and resolution needs to be sought within our own psyche, even if prompted to keep a distance.
The assumed separation appears to give all kinds of reasons to say that we are different.
But it dies not stop there!
The inflamed ego also devises all kinds of ways to label each other and with that comes judgment.
This judgment does not just go one way. It comes back on me as well.
This is how we “damn” ourselves. Is it not how we manifest karma?
Judgment is how we stop ourselves from remembering our Oneness with the Creator and with each other, and how we stop our creativity which is our natural state of being.
Freedom, if it is to be had by one, must be for all. And it comes by seeing our Oneness, not our Separation.
Differences are to be celebrated not demeaned.
And we each have enough basic common needs to see each other compassionately and as equals.
Atonement makes PTSD understandable and bearable; it even allows us to have reason to give thanks for it.
That is because it reminds us of our union with others, if we allow it to.
And it invites us to be compassionate and aware of one another and the need to support the freedom and basic rights of all sentient life forms.
sentient[ˈsen(t)SH(ē)ənt]ADJECTIVE able to perceive or feel things.
Yes, ALL sentient life forms.
This is such an appropriate topic for todays social climate around the world.
In 2020 we have had the opportunity to look at ourselves and consider who and what we really are and what we value.
I hope that we are able to recognize some of the things that we may be addicted to that are harmful.
Things like drama and attacking others, not to mention ourselves.
Do we value life and support it for all?
Or do we complain about others because “We do not feel worthy of existence so why should they be allowed to be happy or productive!!!”?
Do we self-sabotage ourselves, our families, communities, nations, or even the world, because we feel unworthy of Divine Assistance?
It is time for reflection and it is time for change, if needed.
We all have ways that we can improve.
PTSD should not be feared but embraced.
It is that which reminds us in our physical state that we are united and one.
And, that we want to acknowledge that.
The longing for unity and for connection and for being heard is an appropriate response to the Error of Separation.
Let us rejoice in it while it lasts and embrace ourselves compassionately and do our best to see that we are safe and cared for.
From that place, we can extend the prayers, energy, and activity that will lift the Whole of Creation.
We want to recognize our tendencies in the inflamed ego for addiction and how that feeds the need to silence our inner voice that tells us we are okay.
Please, hear that one more time and place it in your heart if it fits.
We want to recognize our tendencies in the inflamed ego for addiction and how that feeds the need to silence our inner voice that tells us we are okay.

Urtext of A Course In Miracles Page 52 Please bring the Spirit for translation.
Human beings can learn to improve their behavior, and can also learn to become better and better learners.
The learning that we are seeking to uncover is the witness of our divinity as the Christ.
This increase serves (HS notes that this was written “served”) to bring them in closer and closer accord with the Sonship.
It has already been done. We are just waking up to that reality. We may stay in the rotation of suffering and death as long as we want to but it is not our truth.
But the Sonship itself is a perfect creation, and perfection is not a matter of degree.
We are Whole and perfect. What we are caught in is only a psychological construct.
Only while there are different degrees is learning meaningful.
I suspect “different degrees” might be looked at as costumes or false ego images that we have given our psyche.
The evolution of man is merely a process by which he proceeds from one degree to the next. He corrects his previous missteps by stepping forward.
The concept of regressing into a “New State”. Which to us is not possible.
This represents a process which is actually incomprehensible in temporal terms, because he RETURNS as he progresses. (Originally, was “goes forward”, rather than “progresses”), the Atonement is the device by which he can free himself from the past as he goes ahead.
Why are people not willing to see that this is a viable option to the torment we find ourselves in at the moment!
Does the construct of linear time have that much of a hold on us?
He is speaking of the Atonement in this next statement.
It UNDOES his past errors, thus making it unnecessary for him to keep retracing his steps without advancing toward his return.
The Atonement undoes our past errors because it has forgiven all that is not real.
In this sense, the Atonement saves time, but like the miracle which serves it, does not abolish it.
As long as there is need for Atonement, there is need for time.
But the Atonement, as a completed plan, does have a unique relationship to time.
Until the Atonement is finished, its various phases will proceed IN time, but the whole Atonement stands at its end.
Its various phases would refer to the individual psyches waking to the will of God within them.
At this point, the bridge of the return has been built.
We are able to stand in the witness of the Atonement and in our union and unity as a whole before our creator.
And this is available to us NOW.
(Note to HS. The reason this is upsetting to you is because the Atonement is a TOTAL commitment. You still think this is associated with loss.
This is the same mistake ALL the Separated ones make, in one way or another.
Each of us identified the Atonement as a loss of our place in what we call life.
Maybe this is why I chose to accept the assignment that I did. The one that would find me disconnected from all that I held dear. It may have, at times, seemed like other’s choices brought this about but I consider them helpers in my quest.
It is becoming clearer to me that it was really my choice to know the truth of what is real before God above all else that gave me the life I have led.
I could have chosen easy-way-outs many times, but I held to a course that has led me here and I am grateful.
I feel peace and joy and a connection with all that is, ever was, and ever will be.
They cannot believe that a defense which CANNOT attack also IS the best defense.
Except for this misperception, the angels COULD have helped them.
What do you think “the meek shall inherit the earth” means?
They will literally take it over because of their strength. A two-way defense is inherently weak, precisely BECAUSE it has two edges it can turn against the self very unexpectedly.
This tendency CANNOT be controlled EXCEPT by miracles.)
The miracle turns the defense of Atonement to the protection of the inner self, which, as it becomes more and more secure; assumes its natural talent of protecting others.
In the Atonement, there is no such thing as jealousy and not enough love to go around.
In the world of the ego that can be prominent and is seen as people manipulate their spouses, children, or parents to keep their affections from others in the family, community, or even nation or world.
These are behaviors of the inflamed ego that feels threatened and unsure of its place in the heart of the Creator.
As the MIRACLE PROTECTS the INNER SELF by recognizing the Atonement, the inflamed ego is calmed and the inner self grows and resonates with the tendrils that identify its connection to all others and all that is. Which in turn manifests its connection to the Creator.
The inner self knows itself as both a brother AND a son.
This is because the inner self knows itself as Christ, the Son of God.
(Seth spoke of this through Jane Roberts when he referred to us all in the male pronoun. Jesus does the same in the Course In Miracles.)
(The above notes were taken with great difficulty by HS, and constitute the only series this far that were written very slowly. When HS asked about this, she was told, “don’t worry about the notes. They are right, but YOU are not sufficiently Right-Minded yet to write about the Atonement with comfort. You will write about it yet with joy.)
Helen was developing a relationship with the personality of Jesus. She was gaining a confidence and trust in him.
Her inner self recognized him and accepted him as a companion to help with the work that she and Bill had undertaken.
But she still held on to the precepts that were based in fear and she would need to go through this process and come out the other side with confidence in what Jesus would share. And trust that he would respect boundaries.
*Next time it gets a bit personal on how she processed this and how Jesus helped her through it.

The Atonement is the Only defense which cannot be used destructively.
Read that again. Post it somewhere. Write it on the walls of your heart.
That is because, while everyone must eventually join it, it was not a device which was generated by man.
There is a god beyond all that is perceivable by humanity in the flesh or beyond. Spiritual people today suggest otherwise and while the Son is in the Father the distinction is significant and it is clearly taught in the Urtext of A Course In Miracles.
The Atonement PRINCIPLE was in effect long before he Atonement itself was begun.
❤ Don’t you love this!
The Principle was love, and the Atonement itself, was an ACT of love.
Why are people to afraid to accept the Atonement?
Acts were not necessary before the Separation, because the time-space belief did not exist.
Acts, actions, experiences, lessons, oppositions, trauma, drama, not necessary.
It was only after the Separation that the defense of Atonement, and the necessary conditions for its fulfillment were planned.
It was living in the NOW before the Separation. We are being prepared psychologically to return to that place. Yay! I would be hesitant to take it literally here, within time and space, however.
It is in the mindset of the Atonement that we want to be. To go directly to “Now” is short-circuiting the process and allowing the “inflamed” ego another place to hide.
It became increasingly apparent that all of the defenses which man can choose to use constructively or destructively were not enough to save him.
Do you notice something here? Jesus is confessing to his own personal need to grow and develop within time and space. This is why the god of the Old Testament was so apt to appear vengeful or fierce, jealous even.
It was therefore decided that he needed a defense which was so splendid that he could not misuse it, although he COULD refuse it.
By whom? Why by Jesus through his witness of the Holy Spirit. This is the way that we want to be making decisions as well. And Jesus did not work alone. There were many, though not necessarily all of us, that joined in the “counsel” that he had. In other words, for a long time there have been those who thought it was best that a few made the decisions for the whole.
Jesus had the most gifts and recall of the presence of Father so he led things, but there were others and not all of them grew as Jesus did, into an understanding and acceptance of the Atonement. Some of them walked the earth and kept that “elite attitude” moving from generation to generation.
That is one of the challenges the Christ Consciousness faces; revealing those who got locked in that paradigm and refused to release it once the Atonement was revealed.
Disclaimer: This is my impression and interpretation at this time and it seems very appropriate for the things that are going on in the world at the moment.
His will could not turn it into a weapon of attack, which is the inherent characteristic of all other defenses.
The Atonement is the direct door through which humanity may claim their heritage and escape the cycle of suffering, pain, and death that has been established by the “inflamed” ego of Christ who thinks He has offended God by Separating from Him.
The Atonement thus becomes the only defense which was NOT a two-edged sword.
Thinking of the scripture by Paul that speaks of the armor of God, Ephesians 6:17 … the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. I remembering taught that this was a two-edged sword that could heal or tear apart a person.
I personally placed myself in the hands of the Spirit often so that He could extract a belief or action that was detrimental to me or others. His scalpel did not leave the scars that the world did when they taught me things.
Jesus says the Atonement goes beyond that. That the Atonement will not cut you, but embrace you “Just As You Are” scuffling off what was manifested by the “inflamed” ego and holding close that which is Divine and your true self.
It was not Jesus who did it, it was Father who does it once we follow the example we have been given by Jesus. Even the Christ that we are, the Son, did not create, nor fulfill the Atonement. It is ours because we recognize we are the Christ, the Son. Do you see the difference?
The Atonement actually began long before the Crucifixion.
Because LOVE was the Power by which you came into being.
Many Souls offered their efforts on behalf of the Separated Ones but they could not withstand the strength of the attack, and had to be brought back.
This is intriguing to me. It suggests that not all of us got caught in this false paradigm construct. It makes one think a bit differently about the Souls that we walk among, as well. One never knows who is sent to help redeem through their “costume” and who may be blinded by the idea of the Separation.
Angels came, too, but their protection was not enough, because the Separated ones were not interested in peace.
Angels protect! Have you heard stories of this or experienced it yourself?
I have! I know that this is true.
“The Separated ones were not interested in peace.” Remember this goes back to the beginning (if you want to speak in terms of time. Now we know time is not a truth. While time remains it needs to be understood that these entities have been with us since the beginning of time. Curious, isn’t it, how we do not know if we are one of the ones who accepted the Atonement or one who volunteered to assist them?
They had already split themselves, and were bent on dividing rather than reintegrating.
“Go forth and multiply” seems to be a direct order to do such a thing.
*This is fully my interpretation, I cannot say that I have heard anyone else say that outright. It makes sense to me though with all the teachings I know of Jesus, and others.
The levels they introduced into themselves turned against each
other, and they, in turn, turned against each other.
Levels created by establishing criteria for differences. Looks, coloring, education, wealth, position on the “ladder to success”, all have been used to create the levels that Jesus speaks of.
They established differences, divisions cleavages, dispersion, and all the other concepts related to the increasing splits they produced.
Not being in their Right Minds, they turned their defenses from protection to assault, and acted literally insanely.
Their Right Mind would be in awareness of their creation.
It was essential to introduce a split-proof device which could be used ONLY to heal, if it was used at all.
This suggests that Jesus worked with the Holy Spirit to devise such a device. I think that is significant because it suggests that the Holy Spirit does not want to take over and tell us what to do (which could not be always said for Jesus) and that he wants us to work out our situation so that we can grow into what we are.
The Atonement was built into the space-time belief in order to set a limit on the need for the belief, and ultimately to make learning complete.
Wow! “To set a limit on the need for the belief, and ultimately to make learning complete.” That sounds like freedom to me.
The Atonement IS the final lesson.
Shhhh, do not tell anybody, once you get here. Good grief you will be called the biggest narcissist there is. Or they will look at you with pity because you are obviously delirious. It is real, though it can take some effort to allow yourself to accept what it means.
It occurs to me that the term “final” has been taken to mean that when humans accept the Atonement life on earth will end. This is not what Jesus is saying at all. None of it had been. Not even the Final Judgment which he explains in the Urtext as being when you stop weighing in on your actions, etc, and judge the “inflamed” ego to be wanting so that you can accept the Atonement and your place in God.
Is that why this principle has not been taught by those who profess to understand the Course?
What really confuses me is that they think it is okay to promote LOVE as THE WAY without implementing the Atonement. I do not understand this, but it is not my place to discourage love in any form.
Humanity will “get it” one day.
Learning, itself, like the classrooms in which it occurs, is temporary. Let all those who overestimate human intelligence remember this.
TEMPORARY, creates a new paradigm for education perhaps. I would love to see education reviewed. Learning all forms of symbolism used is important and how about including understanding the energetic/thought world that we live in? Teach children meditation so that they might become the masters of their thoughts and their experience.
(HS questions last sentence, which she perceives as threatening.)
She is a professor, after all. Academia is her world in this lifetime.
The ability to learn has no value when change of understanding is no longer necessary.
This is because we are natural creators.
The eternally creative have nothing to learn.
Only after the Separation was it necessary to direct the creative force to learning, because changed behavior had become mandatory.
Please review this. Pray about it. Ponder it. Put it on the back burner.
The ATONEMENT IS YOURS. READY TO PARTAKE OF NOW.
You will change the world around you, not to mention past, future, and present.
The way “Be in the moment, now” is premature. The Atonement will allow us to get to that place.
I am grateful for those who have gone down that road because it has been preparatory for people to be willing to step into the Atonement, once they see the plausibility (the quality of seeming reasonable or probable) and need of it.
No way! PTSD may be but that is different.
Depression and all other struggles and traumas in this sphere have to do with the “inflamed” ego developed as Christ was thought of in the mind of God.
It may be that depression is part of the story you chose. If so accept it and do not beat yourself up. If not, be creative and picture the very world you see with new eyes. Focus on positives and not the negatives. Magnify your sincere desires. (Disclaimer: I am not a licensed therapist of any sort.)
What we will be or not be is made up in our minds.
Make peace with your story that you played out here.
It is not who you are.
It is only an assignment that you got to play out.
Did you discover that you were not any of the things that you thought you were?
And that neither was the world, or anything in it, what you thought it was?
Yep, then maybe you have awakened to the idea that you are something bigger than what you thought and that you are a part of a whole that is beyond your comprehension at this time.
And no matter the stories of joy, or betrayal, that have followed you in this lifetime, there is a greater awakening, if you will let this version go.
That is my faith and my hope.
I bear witness of “Christ” as all manifestation, and through the power of the Holy Spirit, pledge my faith in a Father that is overall.
Jesus, take my prayers and my thoughts and any strength and energy I may have and use it for the benefit of humanity. This is my prayer.
Please bring the Spirit for translation.
Sublimation should be associated with the SUBLIME.
Sublime: (in psychoanalytic theory) divert or modify (an instinctual impulse) into a culturally higher or socially more acceptable activity. purify, transmute, refine
It is really what is at the core of “peeling back the onion” that we do as we self-actualize.
There are many other so-called “dynamic” concepts which are profound errors due essentially to the misuse of defenses.
Remember: Our only correct defense is the Atonement that knows that we are One and forgives the illusion because it knows it is false. That does not mean that while in the illusion we are not affected by what happens there. It is our current “reality”.
Among them is the concept of different levels of aspiration, which results from real level confusion.
I am curious as to the types of aspiration Jesus was speaking of. Was it education, money, position, etc? Perhaps all of it and is this not what society is based on?
However, the main point to be understood from these notes is that you can defend truth as well as error, and in fact, much better.
Lord, let it be.
So far we have concentrated on ends rather than means because unless you regard an end as worth achieving, you will not devote yourself to the means by which it can BE achieved.
Your own question enabled me to shift the emphasis from end to means.
(Question asked was “how can we incorporate this material?”)
You and B. HAVE accepted the end as valuable, thus signifying your willingness to use defenses to ensure it.
This is necessary for any goal to be obtained. Thankfully, they both were willing to bring this information forward even though they were not able to incorporate it fully together themselves.
The means are easier to clarify after the true worth of the goal itself is firmly established.
Law of Attraction followers, are you hearing this?
Some of my challenge of late is knowing what to visualize. I have to say that the goals I had in my writing for the past few years have been fulfilled.
- To get people’s attention. I dare say that Covid19 has brought the world to a place where reflection on things instead of just running in the “rat race” has been achieved.
- To have serious discussions about serious issues. The racial unrest and revelation of pedophilia have brought that about.
- So what is next? I have to admit that I am so far out on the limb in visualizing a healing for humanity that is beyond the norm that I tend to freak-out when I think someone may be listening to me because I have no desire to lead anyone astray or into false hope.
- Yet it is Jesus that is telling us these truths, not me. I believe that he wants us to stop building outwards and allow him to step beside us in our thoughts to take us gently into the place where we will allow this world to phase out and we will become willing to allow Christ to be taken up by His Father. Sounds like suicide to the ego, but it is not. It is coming into our truth and fulfilling the connection we all long for, not to mention the exquisite joy and energetic stimulation beyond our imagination.
Everyone defends his own treasure.
The recent issues have caused people to think about what their treasure is and if it really is worth defending.
You do not have to tell him to do this, because HE will do so automatically.
The real question still remains WHAT do you treasure, and HOW MUCH do you treasure it?
Once you learn to consider these two points and bring them into ALL your actions as the true criteria for behavior, I will have little difficulty in clarifying the means.
You have not learned to be consistent about this as yet.
I have therefore concentrated on showing you that the means ARE available whenever you DO ask.
It has been the desire of my heart to do what I can to bring about what I knew as the Millennium. That thousand years when Christ would reign.
It was at New Years 2014 that it became my focus and I accepted the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit as my partners in the pursuit.
This was six months after I had been told that my daughter would die in a years time and as a mom I was desperate to bring “Him” here to help her.
Who would have thought that I would be here today, understanding what I do now.
I had known for a while that the only thing keeping us from having heaven on earth was the way we were looking at things.
And, even today, we are looking to make this world a better place instead of realizing that we need to see it for the illusion that it is and realized that there is another reality, another existence that is more true to our nature and “being”.
You can save a lot of time, however, if you do not need to extend this step unduly.
If only we could come together in this. Today it seems a lot more possible than it did even just a year ago.
The correct focus will shorten it immeasurably.
We can do this! Let it begin with me!
Papers will be very easy to write as this time is shortened.
Do not let the references to their college duties dissuade you from the truth that we can shorten the time of suffering on the earth.
This is something that can be done but it is an internal exercise and requires a great faith on a creator that is calling us home, into his loving embrace and presence.
He is the connection that we are longing for.
It is only in the Creator that we will find the “fix” we are seeking for the deep and profound longing that is felt in the heart of each individual.
May it be sooner than later. Till next time, God bless, bye for now.
