We are each a part of the pie that makes up Creation. Our influence cannot be underestimated, no matter our current circumstantial appearances. How we view ourselves and each other in relationship to God is fundamental and will impact how we are experiencing life in the physical world.
Faith is required. Faith in oneself and faith in each other as a Whole Body/Pie/Sonship within the Mind and Heart of God.

We can follow ego tactics that are confusing and never satisfying or we can follow our truth, our connection, and understand we do not create ourselves.

God created us all equal and capable of influencing the whole (pie/Sonship)

You are of Him, in Him, and worthy of all that He is, innocent as a child and yet still capable of making mistakes for a time.

I think I will just repeat that:

You are of Him,

in Him, and

worthy of all that He is,

innocent as a child and

yet still capable of making mistakes

for a time.

The “time” factor only depends on how long it takes you to be willing to seek the guidance of the Holy Spirit. And then learning what that means.

There IS an existence beyond time where the past has no negative influence on the present and the future gives no challenge because there is no longer anything to fear.

Humanity is capable of stepping into this place whenever they choose to.

Why? Because it is God’s Will for His Son!

You have the assistance of the Holy Spirit and all of nature. Even your stories give you clues to the way you are to present the message of God’s Love.

Your stories give you the language and the feelings that, when seen as your gift to God’s Son, will allow you to bless others by knowing you are able to forgive, or release, whatever your story contains because it was fabricated by a mind that believed it was separated from God.

The first mistake was the one of Jesus thinking he had pulled away and become separate from God.

When I wrote this in the book “Mama’s Christmas Carol, You Got the Power, Mom!” that I take these reading from I said “Christ” was the one who pulled away.

Because I thought it was the whole who thought they had departed from God’s will.

But it was not the whole of Christ that got the idea that He was separate. It was only a part of His Mind and a few (perhaps several thousand) of his thoughts before the acceptance of the Atonement stopped the fallout.

I suspect that the one we know as Jesus was the first to believe in separation and to accept the Atonement. Jesus does say in the fourth chapter of the text in the HLC draft that he accepted the Atonement while in the flesh on earth and was the first to accept it and that is significant to me, even though time is an unreal construct and may figure in here as well.

I understand that no one has recorded this before but that does not mean I am wrong!

Jesus is the Atonement because he has received it for himself. He teaches in A Course In Miracles that if we accept it we also become the Atonement and recognize ourselves as part of the Christ Sonship.

The reason I say this is because he is the first to accept the Atonement and he has the memory of being one with the Father which the others who left after he did would not have.

Bear in mind that this is the work of myself who wants to understand the will of God. I have no proof of what I share besides the testimony that burns within me. And I offer it in full so that I may be corrected by the Spirit if I am amiss.

Please accept responsibility for what you accept from what I or anyone else offers as “truth”. You must seek it out in your own understanding with the Holy Spirit.

You will not see me become popular in my lifetime by my intention or desire because that is not my objective. It suspect it would present issues that would distract me from my purpose which is to unite with God’s will and share it with humanity.

I want God’s will and love for His Son to be known. Not my pockets filled or my image to replace any portion of your mind that belongs to God. If you see God when you see me or think of me, I am satisfied and fulfilled.

Depression (Disclaimer: I am not a therapist or doctor of any sort. And speak of this in spiritual terms based on my experience and observation of over six decades.)

I think of anyone who is living as experiencing PTSD Post Traumatic Stress Disorder because of this. My understanding is it is loss of hope and embodies a belief in despair, fear, and guilt.

To deny anything is to claim the opposite. Therefore to deny our place or others in God who gives us life is to claim death. And that sounds depressing to me.

See Text/Chapter 10: The Idols of Sickness/V. The Denial of God

  1. ⁵They do not realize that to deny God is to deny their own Identity, and in this sense the wages of sin is death. ⁶The sense is very literal; denial of life perceives its opposite, as all forms of denial replace what is with what is not. ⁷No one can really do this, but that you can think you can and believe you have is beyond dispute. (ACIM, T-10.V.1:6–7)

³If God knows His children to be wholly joyous, it is blasphemous to feel depressed. (ACIM, T-10.V.12:3) (*Blasphemy is not a sin but an error that we can correct.)

From the Hugh Lynn Cacey Manuscript, one of the early drafts of A Course In Miracles, T 4 C 7-8. (*my comments) I will space the two paragraphs out into individual sentences to allow for ease of reading.

“Only those who have a real and lasting sense of abundance (*within God as His Children) CAN be truly charitable.

This is quite obvious when you consider the concepts involved.

To the ego, to give anything implies that you will do without it.

When you associate giving with sacrifice, then, you give only because you believe that you are somehow getting better, so that you can do without the thing you give.

“Getting to get” is an “inescapable” law of the ego, which ALWAYS evaluates itself in relation to other egos, and is therefore continually preoccupied with the scarcity principle which gave rise to it. (*Consider also “giving to get”.)

This is the meaning of Freud’s “reality principle,” since Freud thought of the ego as very weak and deprived, capable of functioning ONLY as a thing in need(*Freud was still an accepted authority in the 60’s and was referenced by Jesus.)

The “reality principle” of the ego is not real at all.

The ego is forced to perceive the “reality” of other egos because it cannot establish the reality of ITSELF. (*In other words we believe what is not true, IE in the egos/masks/or false images we see presented by others when denying their reality only as God created them.)

In fact, its whole perception of other egos AS real is only an attempt to convince itself that “IT” is real. (*The ego is what a part of the Mind believes itself to be and nothing more. I want to make it clear that the distorted ego is what is not real. This does not deny your entire existence however as some Course students suggest.)

“Self-esteem,” in ego terms, means nothing more than that the ego has deluded itself into accepting its reality, and is therefore temporarily less predatory.

This “self-esteem” is ALWAYS vulnerable to stress, a term which actually refers to a condition in which the delusion of the ego’s reality is threatened. (*This form of stress is what gives us depression. We are believing ourselves to be something we are not. And that is without God and His assistance in all we do and are.)

This produces either ego deflation or ego inflation, resulting in either withdrawal or attack. (*Consider your own experiences. Withdrawal and attack have nothing to do with inclusion, real identity, or strength.)” T 4 C 7–8

From here it may be easier to see how we have all played a role as narcissist, sociopath, psychopath, and how other emotional and behavioral disorders come from this belief in a false image that must be separate, protected, and kept unaware of its own truth and dependence on God.

Just as there is no hierarchy in miracles and there is none in error. An error of separation from God is an acceptance of one’s death, no matter the form it takes. This is my understanding of “we have all fallen short of the glory of God.”

It is the denial of the spark (*That which connects us to God, our divinity.) that brings depression, for whenever you see your brothers without it, you are denying God. (ACIM, T-10.V.2:5)

Depression which is felt by the ego because of separation from God. However it is not to be confused with Post Traumatic Separation Disorder (PTSpD, coined by me) which we experience as children of God within an ego-built world that believes it is separated from God and one another which brings soberness and a humble attitude rather than depression.

Illnesses of mind and body afflict us when we close our eyes to our own Soul or that of another.

Do you want an anti-aging method?
Acknowledge God and give thanks in all things.
Keep a desire in your heart for the well-being of all creation.

See the world through the eyes of the Holy Spirit and know that God IS, we are one creation and one in Him, even as He created us.

Above all remember that you are an eternal being created by a perfect entity that gives you your identity.

You have assistance. You have angels and guides that are sent by the Holy Spirit.

They hear the voice of the Holy Spirit and Jesus and assist you.

In some instances, you need to request their assistance before they can act.

That goes for those who are seen as in the physical world and those who are not seen.

Power Hunger

This is something that those with money and influence are accused of but it is wise to be careful of accusations.

Power Hunger is one-upping the other person and we have all done it. It comes from the belief in separation which leads to the belief in lack.

It does not seek cooperation and mutual abundance.

To rule over others is a desire of the ego who believes that it is alone and is trying to prove itself as existing. It makes no sense and is insane thinking and this is why we want to recognize and rid ourselves of it.

Acquiring possessions and position can create a mirage that never quite convinces the ego that it IS.

Because “the ego is the belief that it is completely on its own.” HLC T 4 C 11

Without “power” in the world, it appears that you have little influence.

All of our true power comes from our Creator and our recognition of Him.

Each and every person or intelligence has a part in influencing the whole because we are all connected and one person tapping into the truth can have more influence than a million in agreement on an error.

A lot of games are played among the egos of humanity that claim power over others. This just has no bearing in the reality of who you are as a child of God.

This influence can cause us to be afraid of abundance and position but we are all equal before God, make no mistake. Put your trust in what is real and the only way you will know what that is will be by listening to that voice within that knows what you cannot from where you sit in the world.

We all suffer from PTSpD, Post Traumatic Separation Disorder.

As previously noted, do not confuse this with depression of the ego that believes it is separate from God.

Why is it a “disorder” in my mind? Because it has no reality or basis in truth since separation from God is impossible.

“When a person can’t find a deep sense of “meaning”, they distract themselves with pleasure.” Viktor Frankl

Our meaning, according to ACIM is to be a Voice for God’s Love to His Son through true forgiveness and acknowledgment of our place within God.

While joy and peace are the gifts of following the Holy Spirit we all have discontent with the world of separation and its consequences in the physical world.

Jesus does as well. While he remembers our Oneness and has fully accepted the Atonement, he is as separate as the rest of us are because he cannot be completely in God until the whole Sonship is returned by undoing the error of belief in separation.

I say this even while knowing that for Jesus He and God have no separation at all, nor do we in truth or reality.

With that in mind, I do believe that it is important to have compassion for one another and for ourselves, no matter how “life” expresses itself.

We really are “in this together.” And one piece of the pie is not capable of being in God without the Whole. ❤

I hope that we can remember this as the USA travels into an election year.

Each of us has a responsibility and an influence on how things go. And that has nothing to do with a vote and everything to do with where you place your trust.

Is it in the ego or is it in God?

We must learn how to live in the world without being of it. Without getting caught in believing it is real.

It has become like a movie stage to me and even when my emotions are taken for a roller-coaster ride I remember that this is not who I am, it is merely a role I accepted for a time and all will work out for the good of the Whole Son of God.

I know this, not by intellect or logic but by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Till next time, God bless, bye for now.
