They have our best interests at heart and they know what it will take to help another be able to step into the Atonement and out of the chaos that belief in separation from God and one another has brought about.
You can put any scenario in there that you want to; bullying, domestic abuse, rape, murder, theft, child or senior abuse, anything, I will stand by what I am saying here. There is a bigger picture at play.
It is important to remember that #1 we are not our bodies, #2 we will not give up our addiction to suffering, guilt, punishment, and death until we see the futility of what we receive from it, and #3 nothing can truly harm us or our loved ones in an eternal manner.
It cannot truly destroy the earth or the species we have witnessed the extinction of. What God creates does not die. And I believe He either had a hand in creating all that is OR that He will honor that which His Son has created which would still be an extension of Himself.
Jesus says it is the Mind that needs to be altered and that is what the Course is directing us to. He also mentions Spirit which I believe is that immediate essence or life force within the body. It appears to still be directed by the Mind that has confused itself by believing it is a body.
I bring this up because we cannot expect it to evaporate in a moment’s time and yet Jesus has said it will be as the “twinkling of an eye”. This is because when we really understand it the adjustment is quick.
My walk in the Atonement has shown me that the things that trouble me today are there to give me the language for the message that I feel God wants me to share about the truths that the Holy Spirit has shown to me.
I am beginning to believe that we may have no way of putting a stop to these issues without understanding the Atonement and being willing to accept the inspiration of the Holy Spirit in our daily lives. If we do anything without God it is temporary at best and can warp into a worse scenario which may be even more difficult to spot.
Your individuality AND STORY are vital and correct for this time frame. DO NOT claim your story AS you. It is a role you were sent to perform.
All that we see and plenty that we do not see is Christ, the Son of God calling out for a connection to the Love of God that He believes He has forfeited.
I believe the Course teaches that there may be some who have come that are not addicted to the separation but that have agreed to come to assist those who are and in the coming here get caught up in the belief structure of separation.
That said, basically, all of us go through an adjustment period of remembering that this is not our original estate. All, except Jesus! He did remember and while he came to earth and learned as we do from infancy, he retained a memory that the rest of us do not. That of being with and in God, the Father as a Whole Sonship, IE Christ.
He was the first to receive the Atonement and thus became the Atonement. He became one to whom the rest of us could look to and see the light of Christ that resides not only in him but in each and every one of us.
Understanding that the belief in separation from God was something that the Son of God did and that there is only one Son, therefore there is only need for one all-encompassing forgiveness that would undo the error. This would be a forgiveness that of necessity would wash over all of the consequences of that belief as well.
It is true that all our troubles do not immediately disappear so there must be another way to look at the world and those who are suffering. It will take a willingness to believe and trust this to be so, and then a willingness to listen to the Holy Spirit’s direction in that. This is what I have experienced in preparation for this post.
Because God IS it is His way of looking at things that we want to grasp. We are a part of Him. We exist within the Mind of God therefore our Will is as His is, we have simply allowed ourselves to forget that.
You may see situations you are not able to fix but let’s not think of them as “broken”, let us consider them a part of the Universal Plan to bring all into the understanding of the Atonement and ultimately back into full awareness of God.
Till next time, God bless, bye for now.
