55 Urtext ACIM pg. 40 There is a reason why the political arena cannot correct humanities issues.

Text in bold. Comments* Please invite the Holy Spirit for interpretation, thank you.

The concept of ANY sort of need HIERARCHY arose because, having made this fundamental error, he had already fragmented himself into levels with DIFFERENT needs.

*The fragmentation is the creation of separate bodies for the Son of God. The hierarchy may seem real, but it is not. Along with the separate bodies Christ made for Himself came a false representation of needs as well.

As he integrates, HE becomes one, and his ONE need becomes one accordingly.

*Integration is coming together as equals. This is what ought to be the objective of the human race.

*This does not mean taking away their uniqueness and identity. It has to do with finding value and worth in all.

Only the fragmented can be confused about this.

Fragmented = Those who consider themselves separate.

Internal integration within the self will not (suffice to?) correct the lack fallacy, but it WILL correct the NEED fallacy. (Thank you for writing this as given.)

*I suspect that this refers to the illusion of the physical body will remain and its perceived lack will need to be addressed, however internally the connection with the Holy Spirit, One Another, and God, the Father remove the need concept.

Unified need produces unified action, because it produces lack of ambivalence.

*ambivalence = mixed feelings or contradictory ideas

The concept of need hierarchy, a corollary to the original error, requires correction at its OWN level, before the error of levels itself can be corrected.

*One must recognize that they have accepted the concept of separation from God and release it, accepting the truthfulness of union with all that is.

*In other words, there will not be real equality among humanity until Christ is seen and forgiven for the error of thinking He had separated from God.

*This is also why “love” is not going to take care of the world right now. I know that a lot of people are pushing “love” and it would make so much sense if it were not for the origination of the error. And that must be corrected before equality will be obtained.


Man cannot operate (or behave) effectively while he operates at split levels.

*Effectively, cooperatively, as a Whole Unit. Once Christ is identified and forgiven humanity will come together. And not until.

But as long as he does so, he must introduce correction from the bottom UP.

*From the bottom UP would suggest to me, from those who are suffering the most from concept of lack.

This is because he now operates in space, where “up” and “down” are meaningful terms.

*In other words, it does not have to be this way.

Ultimately, of course, space is as meaningless as time. The concept is really one of space-time BELIEF. The physical world exists only because man can use it to correct his UNBELIEF, which placed him in it originally.

*Now here, is quantum physics! Read it again real slow. We are not the “form” that is our true nature in the physical or spiritual world. There is some “other” essence that God IS, and We ARE.

As long as man KNEW he did not need anything, the whole device was unnecessary.

*Man means humanity, actually it means Christ. Why were Helen and Bill so determined not to see this? I think it was they could not separate the Christ identity from the physical essence of Jesus, which is understandable.

*It is because I am a devout follower of Jesus, who never believed that someone else could tell me what he taught, that I understand the teaching that he gave that told us we are all a part of Christ. So many Christians do not understand this, even today. Do you know of any, really? Why would we expect that Helen and Bill would “get” it?

The need to know is not safely under man’s control at this time. It is MUCH better off under mine. Let’s just leave it at that.

*Jesus is the one who “knows” that humanity does not need anything. Here again is the key to how and why Jesus is and has been a significant part of the Atonement since time began. It only takes one of us to fully understand any component, because of the fact that we are all ONE entity.

*I still, personally, feel that a female entity in the flesh needed to join him in the process of comprehension. Sort of the yin and yang of the separation equation.

*This has been a powerful reading! Especially given our political climate in the western world and indeed worldwide. Love is what God is made of and it powers the world, but until we recognize the Christ and our non-fragmented reality, we hide from the love we claim we so desperately desire.

“May Jesus and the Holy Spirit help us over this hump in our understanding. In the name of Christ, Amen.

Till next time, God bless, Namaste~
