Please invite the Holy Spirit to your study. Thank you.
33. The miracle dissolves error because the Spiritual eye identifies error as false or unreal.
*To receive this witness we must have communion with the Holy Spirit, because is the one who shares this information with us. I am not saying you have to know who He is, just that without Him you do not get this witness. Of course, the witness of the innocence of humanity comes via the Spirit as well.
This is the same as saying that by seeing light, darkness automatically disappears.
*The light goes on and darkness is dispelled.
Darkness is lack of light. It does not have unique properties of its own.
*Darkness is a lack. Significant on many levels.
It is an example of the scarcity fallacy, from which only error can procede (proceed).
*In others words it is part of the illusion or the dream that Christ is currently caught up in.
(Truth is always abundant……Those who perceive and acknowledge that they have everything have no need for driven behavior of any kind. HS has other personal material related to this re pregnancy.)
*I am not sure that I connect the dots on the pregnancy comment here. However, it has been my observation that those who have an assurance of having their needs met are not frantic or fearful as are those who do not.
34. Miracles are a blessing from parents to children.
*As parents, in general, we see our children as innocent and teachable.
This is just another way of phrasing the previous point about “from those who have more to those who have less.”
Children do NOT belong to parents, but they DO need to share their greater abundance.
*When I joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, that my children where mine on loan from God was an easy concept for me to grasp. I gave them all that I was able to and then release them into the hands of God.
If they are deprived, their perception becomes distorted.
*This deprivation can take many forms; physical, psychological, spiritual and so forth.
When this occurs, the whole family of God, or the Sonship, is impaired in its relationships.
*And this has been happening since the beginning of time. In essence we have forgotten who we are.
Ultimately, every member of the family of God must return.
*This makes so much sense to me today. I use to believe that some could be left out, by their own choice for sure, but still… I have children of my own and I know that God would not lose one, not a single one. (And I have been put to the test on this many times over.)
The miracle calls to him to return, because it blesses and honors him even though he may be absent in spirit.
*I wonder if heart or mind could not be used along with the word “spirit”.
34. The miracle acknowledges all men as your brothers and Mine. It is a way of perceiving the Universal Mark of God in them.
*The Miracle truly becomes the lens through which we want to “see” the world.
(Tell B. that this is the true “strawberry mark” of Brotherhood. This is just a sign of special concern for him, because he keeps worrying about this.) You might add that his false idea about his own exclusion from Universal Love is fallacious in your terms, and arrogant in his. HIS real specialness does NOT stem from exclusion, but from inclusion. ALL My Brothers are special. He should stop interpreting this as “all except B.” This is ridiculous!
*Bill is the more spiritual of the two and he had been studying various things that confused him. Note: “HIS real specialness does NOT stem from exclusion, but from inclusion. ALL My Brothers are special.” You and me as well.
Tell him that the implied lack of love that his version contains is WAY off the Mark, and misses the level of right thinking entirely. He MUST heal his perception in this respect. He must work a miracle on behalf of himself here. (See the point about miracles as a perception corrector before he can effect miracles as creative energizers, which they are. (Tell B. that 50,000,000 Frenchman CAN be wrong, because the notion is too fragmented. What CAN’T be wrong is the Universal Sonship of which he is a part.)
*YES, all the world can be wrong, God is not.
God WOULD be mocked if ANY of his creations lacked holiness.
*Now hear this definition of holiness:
The Creation IS whole. The mark of Wholeness is Holiness, not holes. The Sonship has no holes anywhere.
*I love this definition of Holiness. That we are Whole. Let no one pull asunder that which God has joined. We are truly One. We may as well look for another way to see one another so that we are able to rejoice in who we are.
May this serve us as we walk with the Wakening Christ.
Till next time, God bless, Namaste~
