Day 13 URTEXT ACIM We Have a Role in the Atonement

pg 19
Having been restored to your original state, you naturally become part of the Atonement yourself.
*As part of the Atonement you are a maker of Miracles.
You now share MY inability to tolerate the lack of love in yourself & in everyone else, and MUST join the Great Crusade to correct it.
*crusade = synonyms: campaign · fight · do battle · battle · take up arms
*MY, meaning Jesus’, inability … inability to tolerate the lack of love …”. Note that this means that he sees and acknowledges the hurtful behavior and attitudes. He does not suggest we put on blinders.
*This means that you are able to “see” when lack of love is being expressed. You may hear it or see it or feel it, depending on if your key sense is audio, visual, or kinesthetic, though you will have a sense of it in your own way.
*To bring it out in the open and to the attention of others does ruffle feathers and not fit with political correctness often, but it does allow a mistake to be corrected. By you showing love for yourself and for them by recognizing it, you give them the ability to know that you “have their number” and love them still. There are hurtful minded people that get a lot of their jollies because they believe that they can do what they do “under the radar”. 
*It was “You know share” should be “You now share”, the “k” has a line thru it in the Urtext.
The slogan for this Crusade is “Listen, Learn, and Do.” 
*Action required. Do was underlined, giving it more emphasis.
This means Listen to My Voice, Learn to undo the error, and DO something to correct it.
The first two are not enough.
The real members of MY party are active workers.
*Crusade, party, interesting use of terms. Active underlined, action required.
This may only be in one’s thinking forward.
*”My Voice”, MY party. I am curious if this bias came from Jesus’  terminology or Helen’s translation and did it refer to Jesus or Christ?
 
*I still wonder if it comes from his witness of the Christ that we all are. “My voice or the voice of my servants it is one the same.” His relationship and connection, with the Head of the Matrix (Christ), is bar-none.
The power to work Miracles belongs to you.
*Pronouns. Personal power. Belongs underlined, means please realize this is your heritage.
I will create the right opportunities for you to do them.
*Here again, is where I get the idea that he is our blueprint maker and coordinator of the play or dance that we are part of here on earth. Jesus’ influence cannot be ignored, no matter what your opinion of him is.
But you must be ready & willing to do them, since you are already able to.
*Choice and accountability. Not accountability for punishment, rather the willingness to act. And a great deal of that does take place in one’s thoughts.
Doing them will bring conviction in their ability.
*You cannot follow the promptings of the Holy Spirit without getting a witness of their correctness inside, this is my experience, and what I believe is meant by conviction here.
*synonyms: certainty · certitude · assurance · confidence · sureness
I repeat that you will see Miracles thru your hands thru MINE.
*He is at the Head, the Firstborn, the beginning and the end. These comments were not carried into ACIM publications being considered too personal. Perhaps confusing to people or perhaps reflective of the biases that Helen had from the society around her.
*I would not take “MINE” to mean Jesus’ physical hands, nor “thru your hands” to mean your physical hands. It is the mental, emotional process that brings Miracles about. Just as the eyes you will “see” with are your heart or mind’s eye.
*I (Yvonne) am not suggesting that love and service cannot be expressed through the hands, as long as we are able and physical, this is something that we can do. And service takes many forms. All of us can offer up a heart full of forgiveness and thanks.
Conviction really comes thru accomplishment.
*Conviction; synonyms: certainty · certitude · assurance · confidence · sureness
Remember that ability is the potential, Achievement is its expression, and Atonement is the Purpose.
*This reminds me of the three-part Godhead. Father/ability/potential, Son/achievement/expression, and Spirit/Atonement/Purpose. Seeming separate, actually the same. WE are each a part of this marvelous Entity.
*I take comfort in the idea that we are all a part of the Atonement. I feel empowered and grateful. I pray this study serves you. The Holy Spirit is the translator that we all need. 

Till next time, God bless, Namaste~

(* Remember I claim no special gifts, they are just my thoughts after a lifetime of trying to understand the will of God, as Jesus taught it, and share it with others from my place of understanding. My comments are as follows: (*…) With the text being in bold print. Crossed out words and phrases from the Urtext did not copy here, so they are made mention to in my comments, if they appear in the transcript. Please bring the Spirit with you to the reading.)

About Yvonne Debra Simmons aka Christa-Ann Faith Godsdaughter

Welcome: Please read at your own risk and be responsible for your own edification and enlightenment. Disclaimer: I no longer consider myself a traditional Christian. I do still follow the Jesus I have come to know and I follow the Holy Spirit, as I recognize Him. I believe that Jesus taught us that we are the Christ and the "I Am" he referred to encompassed all of us. Thus, I believe we have misunderstood many teachings of Jesus. I consider myself a seeker and a believer in humanity and that there is a purpose to being; and an answer as to why we have the suffering that we do. I believe that the Holy Spirit is the instructor we should seek and that means trusting your own heart and being responsible for the guidance we follow. That means learning to hear and heed the voice of warning, instruction, or confirmation. I continue to be a student and an observer. Watching for something that tells me my hypothesis is wrong, or that I need to tweak it in some way. Writing is my greatest instructor these days. When I begin a book I do not know where it will end up or how it will develop, but I do know that I will be a changed person when I finish, knowing myself better. That may just be the best we can hope for in life. I feel as if I have died and gone to heaven numerous times as I have uncovered secrets that I long to share. My body will age and fulfill the contract I made with Christ (meaning all of us) to bare witness of His divine curse of suffering, but my spirit and intellect will bare witness of His innocence and the beauty and expanse of The Father's Love for His Son. To me, this, for now, is the ultimate freedom. I wish no argument with anyone. May we each be true to our own conscience. God bless us every One, Namaste~
