Please bring a prayer and the Holy Spirit with you. Text is bold type, my comments have *asterisk*.
Child of God, you were created to create the good, the beautiful, and the holy. Do not lose sight of this.
*We are of God, after all. In acknowledging the Atonement and our connection one to another and to God we release the need to compete or fear. Being in touch with you is one of the most incredible things you can experience.
You were right in telling B. to invite Me to enter anywhere temptation arises. I will change the situation from one of inappropriate sexual attraction to one of impersonal miracle-working.
*I love this. Invite Jesus into the situation. It gives me a prompting to invite him personally to walk with me daily. It is not that he doesn’t, but my invitation opens my heart to be receptive to his assistance. And to have confidence in that. I wish I could put into words the depth of the meaning of “you are not alone” is to me right now. I do not have to stand as a one drop in the ocean or breeze in the air, I can stand as the whole ocean and atmosphere. Not in a bold, bragging way, but in a confident, humble way knowing that I have assistance as needed in any situation.
*Jesus is speaking here specifically about the sexual temptation. It is really a spiritual identification; a connection to what is truth within ourselves. The feeling of being in the full presence of the Father.
*Does Jesus know this so well that he forgets to acknowledge that for us? I repeat: the sexual stimulation emotional factor has to do with getting in touch with our true essence as a being of God, not as a body needing expression of explosion through another body.
*That actually sounds pretty weird doesn’t it. From a human standpoint. And yet, if we step back and remember that we are not a body. A body is a vehicle that allows us to communicate with one another in this place of confusion and illusion.
*Even in spirit form we still have a sort of esoteric expression in form and this is not our complete truth either. It is only in God that there is complete truth. In complete submersion with him.
*My understanding is that we do not lose our identity there (in the place we truly belong, immersed in God), even though the ego thinks that it does die or forget itself. We will not know what this is like until we get there completely. And that will not happen for any of us, until all of us are awakened to who we truly are in/as Christ and we are taken into full remembrance of God, by Him, as the illusion of separation is banished.
The concept of changing the channel for libidinal expression is Freud’s greatest contribution, except that he did not understand what “channel” really means.
*Interesting, channel as we understand it here is really receiving assistance from outside of ourselves. Or is it inside of ourselves? (My Seth studies are showing.) What I mean is that it is not our ego that is conscious here, that we want to run the gambit on with our libidinal expression. We want actually to hand it over to Jesus, if I am understanding him correctly.
*As eldest and originator of the Plan, he is the one who can direct where it is to be expressed and where not. It seems like we are giving it up to someone else, but truth is, as Christ (which we all are) we are simply handing the responsibility of it over to our higher self.
*And responsibility it is, at least in the world of the physical, for it makes bodies for others to come and learn by means of contrast and struggle. Not only that, it creates groupings of families or enemies. It becomes the glue that appears to hold us to the world of physical and desperately cling to that which appears separate from ourselves.
*We will not be allowed to be of the world; meaning a part of the web of illusions we have told ourselves, in any way. We cannot keep the parts we like and let go of the rest. Each must and will make this choice for themselves; it will not be forced on us.
*These are not choices of opportunity that Jesus is presenting to us. They are realities that have to do with our creation and what we truly are as Divine Entities. May we have the courage to look and to receive our true inheritance sooner rather than later, is my prayer. In the name of Christ, acknowledging Jesus as eldest among us.
Till next time, God bless, Namaste
