*This is from a lengthy discussion between Helen, Bill, and Jesus about possession.
The pseudo-corrective mechanism of three is apt to be more varied because of the
more inclusive nature of the error, which has already been mentioned.
*Here is 3. Another type of distortion is seen in the fear of or desire for “spirit” possession.
*It not only was off, but it cast a false identity over the Holy Spirit and His work, which we need in our day to day walk.
Some of the possibilities are listed below:
a. One aspect of the possession/possessed conflict can be raised to predominance. If
this is attempted in connection with possessing, it leads to the paranoid solution. The
underlying component of “being possessed” is retained in the “persecution” fantasies,
which are generally concomitants.
*concomitants are a phenomenon that naturally accompanies or follows something.
*Once we believe in something being out there that can “get us” we do not give it up and envision all sorts of conspiracies and situations that become very real, especially as we repeat them over and over to each other and to ourselves.
b. If “being possessed” is brought to ascendance, a state of some sort of possession
by external forces results, but NOT with a major emphasis on attacking others. Attack BY
others becomes the more obvious component. In the more virulent forms, there is a
sense of being possessed by demons, and unless there is vacillation with a), a catatonic
solution is more likely than a paranoid one.
*These are the very real observations that Bill and Helen would have been familiar with in their careers.
*It is sad, to reflect how well the political scene reflects these issues, as we watch how the parties continue to attack each other, not to mention the voter apathy that takes place.
*The apathy represents the catatonic solution that Jesus is speaking of here.
*This year (2020) is an election year and it is really hard to say how things will come down when it is all said and done.
The FOCUSED paranoid has become more rigid in his solution, and centers on
ONE source of projection to escape from vacillation.
*To escape from going back and forth between thinking they are the problem (possessed) or that “others” are, they pick an image or situation and defend it (sometimes without any reasoning).
*I feel like I did this in the churches. J.C. represented an image that I would defend, without really making a lot of sense.
*Hymns (music) helped me feel an emotional connection to the situation and dulled my common sense and reasoning abilities. That and the ingrained attitude that someone else knew more than I did.
(Aside: It should be noted that this type of paranoia is an upside-down form of religion, because of its obvious attempt to unify into oneness.)
*There you are.
Both 1, 2, and 4 and more likely to produce neurotic rather than psychotic states,
though this is by no means guaranteed.
*Being under the influence of an “outside, unseen entity” would carry more fear, but as he states, any of it can be over-done.
However, 3 is inherently more vulnerable to the psychotic correction, again because of the more fundamental level confusion which is involved.
*Yes, placing the spirit, or divine part of existence (which is of God) under suspicion.
It should be noted, however, that the greater fear which is induced by 3 can ITSELF
reach psychotic proportions, thus forcing the individual closer and closer to a psychotic
*Psychotic had an interesting set of definitions:

*In other words, they go overboard and are unable to cope in regular living.
*Apparently, we give a lot of different names to this “condition”.
It is emphasized here that these differences have no effect at all on the miracle, which can heal any of them with equal ease.
*Did you hear that?
*These differences have no effect at all on the miracle, which can heal any of them with equal ease.
This is because of the miracle’s inherent avoidance of within-error distinctions.
*One size fits all. Our level of dysfunction, as we categorize things has no bearing; an error is an error.
Its SOLE concern is to distinguish between truth, on the one hand, and ALL kinds of error, on the other.
*This is, not only an incredible blessing, but it deserves to be recognized as something that equalizes each, and every, one of us.
This is why some miracles SEEM to be of greater magnitude than others.
*We all need to partake in this healing. Even Jesus, himself.
But remember the first point in this course, i.e., that there is no order of difficulty in miracles.
*”NO order of difficulty”, all challenges are able to be resolved with the same solution.
*This reminds me of the time in the New Testament when Jesus asked “Who would be more grateful, one who is forgiven much or forgiven little?”.
*Seeing how the miracle works for either, it may be that those who “feel” they have not fallen short, who will take longer to accept the miracle.
The emphasis on mental illness which is marked in these notes reflects the
“UNDOING” aspect of the miracle.
*”Undoing: is the effects of the error is intrinsic in the miracle.
The “DOING” aspect is, of course, much more important.
*The “DOING” might be stated as the allowing or releasing of the miracle itself, which each of us must do, to release ourselves and each other.
But a true miracle cannot occur on a false basis. Sometimes the undoing must
*I suggest that humanity will stay in a state of turmoil, while the undoing is being accepted by one and all.
*The undoing, of course, is the Atonement and rejecting, while forgiving the error of Separation.
At other times, both can occur simultaneously, but you are not up to this at the
*Jesus is speaking to Bill and Helen in this statement, but I believe it is also reflecting on what life will be, once we have a large of people acknowledging the Atonement.
I hope you will join me in doing what we can to understand and live in the Atonement.
Till next time, God bless, Namaste~
