My relationship with him since I was little, gives me confidence in his guidance, alone.
Please invite the Spirit for translation. Beginning at the bottom of page 49. Bold is text.
The miracle worker is one who accepts my kind of denial and projection, unites his own inherent abilities to deny and project with mine, and imposes them back on himself and others.
That is a definition of “walking in the atonement”. Jesus will define this further, hereafter.
Note “inherent abilities” is something we have as a part of Christ/Creation.
YOU HAVE TO SEE SOMETHING BEFORE YOU CAN DENY IT. So, we want to see what is not of truth, wholeness, love so that we can deny it through forgiveness of the error and project the belief that it can be corrected.
This establishes the total lack of threat anywhere.
No threat because you know the truth of what you are observing, a child of God in distress and confusion.
It is very challenging for the human intellect to let go of the idea of suffering and threat to bodily harm.
The entire system of traditional Christianity is, in fact, based on threat and suffering. The very imagery of torture expressed in the “Passion” is blood curdling.
The only decent use of the Crucifixion week is to know it to be unable to defeat “Christ”.
In other words, suffering and death are not real to children of God.
This would not make physical and mental manipulations very functional for those who desired to set themselves up as leaders or superiors in life so the gore is reveled in and Jesus alone is allowed to be identified as the Christ to whom all suffering causes no lasting affect.
I asked Jesus to help me function not out of fear but out of faith. Knowing my thoughts, he said, “There is a difference between knowing what the intentions are of another and being fearful.”
I had been thinking of more than one pre-cognoscente awareness of the life choices of my children.
And I feel the assurance that I made choices that aligned with their freedom.
Together we can then work for the real time of peace, which is Eternal.
Do you see how involved Jesus is with our situation. No doubt there are others on the other side of the veil (of death) who work with us as well.
I inspired Bob (ref. to elevator man who took HS down from her apt.) to make that remark to you, and it is a pity that you heard only the last part. But you can still use that. His remark ended with: “Every shut eye is not asleep.” Since your own vision is much improved at the moment, we will go on a while.
Thankfully, Helen, was willing on some level to work with Jesus, even as she fought him mightily as will be seen in her choice of verbiage around pages 96-100.
Jesus is keenly aware of our receptivity to instruction and understanding.
Freud’s identification of mechanisms was quite correct, as was his recognition of their creative ability.
Meaning that how we use our cognitive abilities gives us the perception we see as a reality. I. E.
They can INDEED create man’s perception, both of himself and his surroundings.
But Freud’s limitations induced inevitable limits on his own perception.
Remember that we all have these limitations. This is why regular, daily study and meditation are vital to the growth of our right-mindedness and correct perception.
He made two kinds of errors. The first is that he saw only how the mechanisms worked in the mentally ill.
I suspect this means those that are very much out of what society considers normal.
The second is his own denial of the mechanism of the Atonement.
It makes me wonder if Freud did have a sense of the Atonement, then again we each do and we choose, like Freud to deny it, hmm.
Let us take up the first, because a clear understanding of the second depends on it.
Denial should be directed only to error, and projection should be limited to the truth.
How I look forward to the day that I am able to live in this along side others.
We want to deny separation and its affects. This does not mean ignore it. In fact, it means bring attention to that which promotes separation attitudes.
Our projection then, would be the belief in the ability for the error of separation to be corrected.
You should truly give as you have truly received. The Golden Rule can work effectively only on this basis.
Forgive, because you have been forgiven. Believe in people’s ability to let go of belief in separation, because Jesus has extended this to you just as the Father extended it to him originally.
Intellectualization is a poor word, which stems from the brain-mind confusion. “Right-Mindedness” is better.
Helen and Bill were seeking an understanding of how to get along. Being academics they felt that intellectualization was the means to the end. Can you just feel the angst from them both, but especially Helen. She liked her defined world and mastery of it.
This device defends the RIGHT MIND, and gives it control over the body. “Intellectualization” implies a split, whereas “Right-Mindedness” involves healing.
It sounds to me like the beginning of removing the sense of separation. Uniting body and spirit, with spirit controlling the body because it is a manifestation of the ego. The “inflamed” ego being “master of that world which does not exist”.
Withdrawal is properly employed in the service of withdrawing from the desert.
Follow this carefully, because Jesus is showing us the reversal of the “inflamed” ego’s error.
It is NOT a device for escape, but for consolidation.
Withdrawing from the place of barrenness and lack of sustenance for life, used here in the metaphor of the desert, heals as it unites the mind with true perception.
When we believe in separation, we think that others may not have capacity for change, or we think what does not harm my body or mind personally, does not affect me. And this cannot be truth. Because:
There IS only One Mind.
There IS only One Mind.
There IS only One Mind.
