Loving Words from Jesus by DV Artwork by Greg Olsen
…I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Matthew 28:20
In this spread this card is the essence of where things stand and for the Christ Consciousness, the Whole, we stand united. Nothing can tear apart what God has joined and He has joined with His Son. His Son may think otherwise and even “see” otherwise for a time, but nothing changes the will of God.
There was a time in my study of A Course In Miracles that I felt we just did not exist, something like The Matrix where we were all just part of some dream or fantasy of The Son and He was elsewhere. Now I understand it is not that He is elsewhere, it is that He was confused about Himself and we now see things that are not there, such as separation, shame, guilt for which the body itself was created to manifest.
Page 33 of the Urtext of ACIM states that “The ultimate purpose of the body is to render itself unnecessary. Learning to do this is the only real reason for its creation.” Now I sense that both is truth. We do our children a disservice to teach them any other key role. How it is manifest I believe is as diverse as the numbers of bodies that ever have or ever will exist.
We can step out of that confusion as we forgive The Son for the error of thinking that separation from God is possible. We can see the confusion and the chaos it brings and know that it is not real. He is with us always, He being Christ. And Christ, being in the Father/God.
I suspect that at this time Christ as a Whole knows this. It is required, however, that each of us understand this individually. That will allow us to let go of time and its harmful effects. Then the world as we have known it will end and eternity will be ours in God. This will not be forced on us, but will come only as an agreeable choice.
…Ask and you shall receive, that your joy may be full. John 16: 24
Jesus recognized Christ within himself. He identified so fully with the Whole Consciousness that his words, even today, often reflect that connection. This verse begins “Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name…” It is the name of Christ that we want to ask, for Christ is the Son, the Whole of Humanity that we acknowledge.
Verse 22 and 23 it read: “And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you. And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily , I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.”
Once we see Christ in ourselves and in one another we will have nothing to ask, because we will understand that we have all that the Father hath, because we are of and in Him.
I do not believe that this was understood by the disciples in Jesus’ time, or at least by those who translated the words of the disciples at this time.
Once you understand you are of Christ, you can turn your life over to the Holy Spirit to be used as a witness of Christ where and how He sees fit. Then your only request is “show me what miracle you would have me perform this day” because you understand that all your needs will be met.
…Blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it. Luke 11:28
Keep it? Live it. Remember it. Ponder its meaning according to how God interprets it, not how man interprets it.
“27 And it came to pass, as he spake these things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice and said unto him, Blessed is the womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked. 28 But he said, Yea rather, …”
I suspect that Jesus was saying here that while the flesh gives us sustanence and appears to give us life, it is spirit that we are truly made of and is eternal and everlasting. Consciousness. Awareness. Recognizing the Son and the Father and Their oneness. We are greater than the physical bodies we occupy at this time. Of this I have no doubt.
Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Matthew 6:34
The verse continues “Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.”. You have heard the concept of be in the NOW. Be in the Present Moment. This is what Jesus was teaching. There is enough confusion in each day to distract us from who we truly are as the Son of God that if we will stay in the moment and in the presence of the Holy Spirit, actively seeking His direction we will be safe. We will have the best and be able to give the best that is required of the moment.
Remember here that the term “evil” is a translation. Also remember that meanings of words change over time and we are talking over 2000 years here. This is another reason why walking with the Holy Spirit is so important. He does not get caught up in fads or trends, he stays in God’s truth.
Christ, in His fullness, is with us always. Once we incorporate that into our “being” we are no longer of the world and hapless victims of time.
Ask to know His will and have the will to do it one moment at a time.
Blessed are they that allow the Holy Spirit to imprint the Word and Will of God on their hearts. Here they will continually testify of Christ.
Be in the present moment and listen to the whisperings and promtings of the Spirit. Act on the promptings, do not put it off for another day.
You will each receive your own advise and counsel from the words of scripture depending on where you are and what you are willing to hear. Do not be afraid to honor that. And what you do not understand “put on the back burner” of your mind and allow the Holy Spirit to reveal its meaning to you.
May this reading serve you and all of Christ Consciousness.
Till next time, God bless, Namaste~
