With Jesus’ teachings in mind. According to my understanding anyway.
My two cents on the recent very public Will/Jada event:
Do you know the story of his mom getting hit in the face by his father’s fist and him seeing her blood and feeling guilty for not protecting her?
My understanding is we tend to partner with some aspect of our parents. As Jesus said in the rough drafts of ACIM we are seeking to reconnect with God but we reach outside ourselves instead of going inward.
I have no problem at all acknowledging that we are all narcissistic. We have to be or we would be with God and not consumed with being our own god.
I have a lot of respect for this couple who was willing to put this on display for the world at large to review and scrutinize.
I AM NOT saying that they staged this.
I am saying that in the Universal Plan of healing Christ’s Consciousness this will be a very public component to allow us to consider the many dimensions that occur in a scenario like this.
We really are all in this together, folks, and what is happening over there is something that we are each sorting out inside ourselves at the same time whether we acknowledge that or not. We are One, as Christ, the Son of God.
Thanks for reading,
Till next time, God bless, bye for now.
One step at a time.
I do not usually share my thoughts on the specific lessons of A Course In Miracles on Medium but these four came at me in a profound way this year and I thought I would share them. I warn you, it does get deep.
My thoughts on ACIM Lessons 87 through 90 with the lessons first. Warning: You may not like this at all. Life is what it is and we each have a story. I can only see the world the way I see it right now. All is well, come what may, the Holy Spirit is guiding. It’s just a “story” anyway. 😉
1. (73) I will there be light. ²I will use the power of my will today. ³It is not my will to grope about in darkness, fearful of shadows and afraid of things unseen and unreal. ⁴Light shall be my guide today. ⁵I will follow it where it leads me, and I will look only on what it shows me. ⁶This day I will experience the peace of true perception.
2. These forms of this idea would be helpful for specific applications: ²This cannot hide the light I will to see. ³You stand with me in light, [name]. ⁴In the light this will look different.
3. (74) There is no will but God’s. ²I am safe today because there is no will but God’s. ³I can become afraid only when I believe there is another will. ⁴I try to attack only when I am afraid, and only when I try to attack can I believe that my eternal safety is threatened. ⁵Today I will recognize that all this has not occurred. ⁶I am safe because there is no will but God’s.
4. These are some useful forms of this idea for specific applications: ²Let me perceive this in accordance with the Will of God. ³It is God’s Will you are His Son, [name], and mine as well. ⁴This is part of God’s Will for me, however I may see it.
1. ⁶This day I will experience the peace of true perception.
Jesus knew that his body could die. He also knew he was not a body and there was no separation from God. He knew death was not God’s Will but the confused mind of Christ as a Whole.
I can apply this same reasoning in my life whether I am frustrated in traffic, caught in an abusive situation I have no means to get out of (such as life, haha, don’t even think it, you will come right back because you agreed to do something here, 😛 ), or if I am watching a family member plot their death and mine because they are losing the battle with coping skills.
Grant you, I may experience different degrees of discomfort with each scenario but there really is no difference before God because separation is impossible. And murder is the objective of the ego in any case where it thinks it is in charge.
Whereas, communion is whole, complete, and eternal. This is what we want to focus on and what we can “see” with the vision of the Holy Spirit.
3. ⁶I am safe because there is no will but God’s.
1. (75) The light has come. ²In choosing salvation rather than attack, I merely choose to recognize what is already there. ³Salvation is a decision made already. ⁴Attack and grievances are not there to choose. ⁵That is why I always choose between truth and illusion; between what is there and what is not. ⁶The light has come. ⁷I can but choose the light, for it has no alternative. ⁸It has replaced the darkness, and the darkness has gone.
2. These would prove useful forms for specific applications of this idea: ²This cannot show me darkness, for the light has come. ³The light in you is all that I would see, [name]. ⁴I would see in this only what is there.
3. (76) I am under no laws but God’s. ²Here is the perfect statement of my freedom. ³I am under no laws but God’s. ⁴I am constantly tempted to make up other laws and give them power over me. ⁵I suffer only because of my belief in them. ⁶They have no real effect on me at all. ⁷I am perfectly free of the effects of all laws save God’s. ⁸And His are the laws of freedom.
4. For specific forms in applying this idea, these would be useful: ²My perception of this shows me I believe in laws that do not exist. ³I see only the laws of God at work in this. ⁴Let me allow God’s laws to work in this, and not my own.
1. ²In choosing salvation rather than attack, I merely choose to recognize what is already there. ³Salvation is a decision made already.
Whether I want to hurt myself in thought or deed or feel threatened by someone else, the decision for salvation has been made by EACH of us. Because I am under no laws but God’s.
1. (77) I am entitled to miracles. ²I am entitled to miracles because I am under no laws but God’s. ³His laws release me from all grievances, and replace them with miracles. ⁴And I would accept the miracles in place of the grievances, which are but illusions that hide the miracles beyond. ⁵Now I would accept only what the laws of God entitle me to have, that I may use it on behalf of the function He has given me.
2. You might use these suggestions for specific applications of this idea: ²Behind this is a miracle to which I am entitled. ³Let me not hold a grievance against you, [name], but offer you the miracle that belongs to you instead. ⁴Seen truly, this offers me a miracle.
3. (78) Let miracles replace all grievances.
²By this idea do I unite my will with the Holy Spirit’s, and perceive them as one. ³By this idea do I accept my release from hell. ⁴By this idea do I express my willingness to have all my illusions be replaced with truth, according to God’s plan for my salvation. ⁵I would make no exceptions and no substitutes. ⁶I want all of Heaven and only Heaven, as God wills me to have.
4. Useful specific forms for applying this idea would be: ²I would not hold this grievance apart from my salvation. ³Let our grievances be replaced by miracles, [name]. ⁴Beyond this is the miracle by which all my grievances are replaced.
I know that the possibility is there of Death at the hand of my beloved family member. We cannot always “fix” things.
There are things within this world of confusion and the lies of the ego that cannot be exposed or believed until after the fact but we can know what is going on if we listen to the Holy Spirit.
No one would or could do anything to stop a situation on the premise of intuition alone and even if they did the opportunity is still there and in the hands of the individual. And the point is, we are all doing it.
Murdering each other and ourselves, regularly, over and over again because we insist that we are separate from one another and from God. Until we see that what will change?
I cannot see myself in a nursing home. I have too much spunk and PTSD/PTSpD (Post Traumatic Separation Disorder). So maybe we have a pact to go out together so I do not have to deal with that! Lol; really though, it is not impossible.
If that is the case I accept it now, before it has ever occurred and all I say is “you are forgiven because it is just a story. I loved you into this world and I will love you no matter what. And no one can part us from our love for each other or from God’s love.”
Of course, this is fictional. It is all an illusion, right. And if it were not, this is what I can say to each and everyone that I have ever known, anyway.
The Atonement is our ONLY recourse no matter what life seems to bring us. Because God IS.
1. (79) Let me recognize the problem so it can be solved. ²Let me realize today that the problem is always some form of grievance that I would cherish. ³Let me also understand that the solution is always a miracle with which I let the grievance be replaced. ⁴Today I would remember the simplicity of salvation by reinforcing the lesson that there is one problem and one solution. ⁵The problem is a grievance; the solution is a miracle. ⁶And I invite the solution to come to me through my forgiveness of the grievance, and my welcome of the miracle that takes its place.
2. Specific applications of this idea might be in these forms: ²This presents a problem to me which I would have resolved. ³The miracle behind this grievance will resolve it for me. ⁴The answer to this problem is the miracle that it conceals.
3. (80) Let me recognize my problems have been solved. ²I seem to have problems only because I am misusing time. ³I believe that the problem comes first, and time must elapse before it can be worked out. ⁴I do not see the problem and the answer as simultaneous in their occurrence. ⁵That is because I do not yet realize that God has placed the answer together with the problem, so that they cannot be separated by time. ⁶The Holy Spirit will teach me this, if I will let Him. ⁷And I will understand it is impossible that I could have a problem which has not been solved already.
4. These forms of the idea will be useful for specific applications: ²I need not wait for this to be resolved.
³The answer to this problem is already given me, if I will accept it. ⁴Time cannot separate this problem from its solution.
4. ²I need not wait for this to be resolved. ³The answer to this problem is already given me, if I will accept it. ⁴Time cannot separate this problem from its solution.
Well, if my family member decides to do us both in I will be fine and so will they because the separation from God has already been healed because it never was. Jesus has been trying to tell us this since time began. This is just a bad nightmare, an addictive dream, and we will get over it.
Now, my body or my feelings may get hurt and I may be concerned about the impact on my family member but truth is they have access to the Holy Spirit and the witness that this illusion is nonsense too. So, I will just trust that however things roll out it is the way that the Universal Plan needs to and I may as well just smile and enjoy the show. However, it goes down I can rest in the Atonement and know that all is well.
I personally think that if we could be more upfront with what is going on in our fictitious lives we would be able to endure them better. It is the pretending they are something they are not that has us stuck here, whether we consider our own situation good or bad, it does not matter. Letting concerns fester is what I think Jesus means by holding grievances. Write them, speak them, let them see the light of day.
Because this is not where God meant for us to be and I am speaking about the state of mind, not the physical earth.
There is a calm that can come in the midst of trauma and tragedy. In fact, the ego/tempter will use it to accuse you of being all kinds of wrong but that is his problem, not yours.
For that matter, why not look at things on the bright side and see healing? Jesus says that the Holy Spirit will help us see that. I am going to hold to that vision no matter what. I hope you will, also.
Till next time, God bless, by for now.
We are living the roles we accepted in the Universal Plan of deliverance.
And we will be shown the way.
It is important to understand that we are living a nightmare that has already been released. (It is all over, folks! I understand that is difficult to comprehend now.)
It is the delusional thoughts of the Son of God who believed just for a moment that He could have been abandoned by or separated from God.
Each of us has been given a role to play in His nightmare and each one of us has the ability from our tiny corner of the Atonement to gently awaken Him from this dream.
Holy Spirit and Nature assist us as signposts, guards, comfort, and directions to keep us safe and on track through His Story.
We are not left to do this on our own.
A huge thing in the nightmare Christ had envisioned is His isolation from God and in doing so imagined Himself being isolated.
God knows better and we have within us the guiding voice of the Holy Spirit.
Mind you, there are many other voices as well, but this one is the one that says you are worthy of attention and patience and all the time in the world to understand that you have not left God and neither has He left you and that all you need to do is remember that and turn away from the error of separation by forgiving yourself for it and all who are around you.
Use the gifts in nature that support life and endurance. One of my favorites is the trees. They show endurance in all sorts of challenging circumstances and that diversity can be a thing of beauty.
Having JOY and PEACE in the moment allows you to alter the experience of the entire Christ Consciousness.
Why? Because we are all connected through our minds and though we may not feel the alignment of this the energy of transference across all of creation is there.
The more that you can bring this to your awareness the more separate you will be from the trauma of His Story and in alignment with who you truly are.
Jesus is our elder brother and equal.
As the first to fall subject to the error of considering the belief in separation from God (Just a personal understanding of mine, he has never said such a thing that I know of.) and he also was the first to accept the Atonement (This he has said, so the other makes sense to me and I have no problem forgiving him for it.), though in our linear time frame it appears that it was fulfilled in the meridian of time.
Yes, I am speaking of Jesus of Nazareth, as well as the “god of the Old Testament” and the author of A Course in Miracles.
I see them all as the same entity and my brother in the Christ Sonship.
Time is a product of the fall and the fear that came with it made our existence appear to be linear. Eternity is an “always” where all things are happening at the same time and every component is aware of the whole and all of its parts, including the over-arching creator of all which I refer to as God.
When Jesus walked on earth he was able to recall the memory of having been with Father/God and the entire “body of Christ” as a Whole.
He was able to go through the experiences on earth and not claim the situations as his own.
As such, he had the opportunity to forgive the Sonship as a whole, especially in the singular identity of Judas who as a friend committed the ultimate betrayal.
All of these stories that we have are not in alignment with our truth but are masquerading caricatures of our truth as children of God.
Like Jesus, the Holy Spirit will bring the light into our minds and reunite us with the remembrance that our will is the Will of Father because we are His.
Many blessings, thanks for reading!
Till next time, God bless, bye for now.
Jesus did. Let’s not complicate it as we have before!
Everything is happening all at once within the Mind of God. Time is currently outside that because of fear brought on by the belief in separation.
7. Eternity is one time, its only dimension being “always.” (ACIM, T-9.VI.7:1)
We think of time as linear. But really does it not make more sense that absolutely everything is going on at the same “time”???
That is how we can each be creative as God made us because we can only be what He is.
It is also how all that is not of God no longer exists in eternity.
Fear from the fall which began with a belief in the ability to be separated from God is what gives us a history of lack, terror, and all forms of abuse. As well as a future that seems fearful and unknown.
In truth, all is eternal. It may be difficult for the human mind to grasp but it is so.
You, as the Son of God and all your creations; and all of theirs, because God is God.
Now, lest you think that it is a perpetual nothingness consider this: perhaps what we consider seconds in linear time are simply different dimensions of the same time element, in other words, all things exist at the same time in different encapsulations known by all parts of the whole Son of God and the Creator; God, the Father. This is eternity.
How the world is doing is showing us how the Mind of Christ as a collective is doing. And your thoughts influence this.
Jesus says there is only one problem: Belief in Separation.
This is my take on A Course In Miracles Workbook Lesson 79:
Let me recognize the problem so it can be solved. (https://acim.org/acim/en/s/482 | W-79)
2. …(problems) must be recognized as one if the one solution that solves them all is to be accepted.
4. The temptation to regard problems as many is the temptation to keep the problem of separation unsolved.
6. ²If you could recognize that your only problem is separation, no matter what form it takes, you could accept the answer because you would see its relevance.
8. ³All that is necessary is to entertain some doubt about the reality of your version of what your problems are.
10. ³Let me recognize this problem so it can be solved. ⁴Then try to suspend all judgment about what the problem is.
We are one whole, right?
So if one person can solve one problem correctly it would seem that the whole would be repaired.
Then again, Jesus said it already has been repaired so that leaves it to each of us to open our eyes and see that it is so.
We do this through the Atonement.
We could spend our lives thinking this lesson means that we are to take each problem that comes at us and correct it but I do not see it like that.
I see that we are being asked to see the correction of the whole that is already complete and the only way to see this is with the principles taught in the Atonement.
1. See only Christ in all of creation.
2. See a mistake of belief in separation.
3. Forgive the mistake and all of its consequences.
That is the simple “formula” that we each have to “swallow.”
The way I see it is that we each have a responsibility for saving the world and every moment we delay brings pain, suffering, and heartache that is NOT NECESSARY.
We ARE ABLE to do something about the state of the world and it costs us nothing.
The Atonement aligns us into one world with diverse parts.
That means that from within the mindset of the Atonement (described in the formula in the section above) we are functioning from the same platform of understanding.
This would have nothing to do with ideologies, religion, or ways to describe and experience the unlimited worlds that we have among us. It would simply align us with the Creator and our power as well as one another so that there would be a connection of energy/thought and experience in a way, this means we would “know” or “feel” one another, even if we were in a different dimension.
And yes, I am getting ahead of myself here because while Time has been released already there are those who are not aware of it. And until EACH of us accepts the Atonement time will be.
Even so, the Atonement does give everyone who participates in it an equal platform because it acknowledges God IS and the Son is one whole made up of many vital and significant parts directed, while in Time, by the Holy Spirit.
Use the things that you are learning in life to put a different perspective on old and stagnant issues.
That is what I did, folks.
And it wraps up this way:
Separation is the source of ALL problems.
123 (see the formula above) Atonement is the only solution to separation.
Linear time will then be destroyed and we will see ourselves as a whole in its multiple forms and expressions within the Mind and Will of God.
Alterations of existence will be witnessed compared to Time because death, guilt, and suffering will have no place there.
Creation will continue indefinitely within the Mind of God where all things are of His Will and are eternal.
Sounds pretty darn exciting to me! I am looking forward to the ride!
Till next time, God bless, bye for now.
We each have a role to play in the scene that takes place across the world we see.
Your place in the Atonement cannot be filled by another. You are as you were created, perfect. Let go of what does not substantiate that.
It is a big world but only YOU can fill your spot in the Atonement.
Let faith in forgiveness be the shield you carry into the world.
If we were to understand it correctly we would see that faith is the same thing as true forgiveness because it is an absolute recognition that God IS.
The first mistake was believing separation from God was possible.
This is what you want to forgive because it forgives everything else that has happened in the ego-created world.
Communication ends separation. This is how the Holy Spirit uses the body.
“Communication ends separation.” (HLC Manuscript T8G4)
“To use the body unnaturally is to lose sight of the Holy Spirit’s purpose, and thus to confuse the goal of His curriculum.” (HLC Manuscript T8G7)
We are all learning here so do not fault yourself. Remember you are part of the whole original error that you have forgiven through the Atonement. The Holy Spirit will direct you, trust that.
God IS and you are IN Him; always have been and always will be. Anything outside of that is unreal and can be let go.
If anything else takes its place you lose your identity as His Son.
Time is happening all at once.
If you could grasp this you would see how easily what appears to have taken place could be erased or be as it has never been through the Atonement.
Do not take for granted the effect of the addictive pull that we have to chaos and division. It is contrary to our truth but it is a pull that calls us like the vampire Edward wanting the blood of Bella in the Twilight Saga and like him, we can overrule that craving.
Can you tell that I am enthralled with the idea of finding metaphors for spiritual understanding within that work?!!
Shove off guilt and shame.
You are a child of God and nothing can change that, not even you.
And God made His Son like Himself, perfect.
We have assistance.
The Holy Spirit needs to be our primary guide. He is our connection to God/Source and our true selves.
He is that still small voice inside that says that you are worthy and that you are an important part of the whole of creation.
You also have angels and other guides. It could be a pet, living or passed. Our helpers are in the flesh and unseen as well. Ask for assistance. Speak to them.
Trust yourself and do not let others get in your head and convince you otherwise. This is a weakness of mine because I know “I do not know” and sometimes I have to claim strong boundaries to keep others out of my head.
As you grow in your spiritual walk you may come to understand that those unseen are much more loyal and numerous than those that are still in the world. Maybe it just comes with age?
This may not be the case for everyone but do not be afraid or feel slighted if it is so.
You will not be forced to accept who you truly are, likewise, nothing will be withheld when you do.
That does not mean life gets easier in the world of form. In fact, it may become excruciating because as you grow in spiritual vision things that did not bother you before, will now.
It will be important to remember what we learned in accepting the Atonement, that what we fear when we think about our bodies has no real impact on us because we are eternal beings. Crushing psychological trauma will have no eternal effect, either, because of the blessing of the Atonement.
Time is to be undone.
This was something that really helped me to see how “all our sins could be washed away”. Past will be undone and lack of fear removes future cares and gives us an eternal present.
We teach others by how we live. Honoring your own boundaries and voice is part of that.
How we treat others is reflective of how we feel about ourselves and about God.
PTSpD is part of the ego world “reality”.
(Post Traumatic Separation Disorder) Until all are safely in the Atonement we will see things that sadden the heart.
Do not fault yourself for it.
Find practices that work for you to relieve it. Nature, exercise, hobbies, breathwork, there is no end to the diverse supports that we have.
And give others “space” because they are feeling it too.
The Holy Spirit is within you and will bring comfort if you will allow Him to.
Teach others by example just do not expect them to see your internal workings or agree with you.
Be sure to have the “shield of ~faith in forgiveness~ of the original error” because this way you walk in forgiveness and do not make an offense real in your own mind. Even though you “see” it with your natural eyes and must deal with it, your spiritual eyes know of Christ’s perfection.
Your main gift in this lifetime is the ability to forgive the Son of God for the belief in separation from God and all the consequences of that belief.
Do not underestimate how powerful TRUE FORGIVENESS is!
The first mistake that created the chaos and caused the “fall” was the belief in the possibility of separation between the Father and His Son.
We got this! Father is delighted in His Son always!
Jesus was the first to accept the Atonement.
He was also the first thought of Christ as He was being created.
He was able to remember being in God and as one with Him.
We can have faith in Jesus’ witness of God.
Helen Schucman, the scribe of A Course In Miracles, thought Jesus had a bit of an ego. I think it was the confidence that one has when one is aligned with the witness of the Holy Spirit. You know that it is true because you have been shown in ways that mortals could never understand with their five senses.
Jesus has walked with me my entire life and I have been lucky to have known him. He is my elder brother and truly my dearest friend who always has my best interests at heart.
I leave this witness with you, in the name of Christ, amen.
Did you notice the repeats in the messages? I do not think that is a coincidence.
Till next time, God bless, bye for now.
Change is in the air.
I cannot have open conversations with the people in my world. So, I talk to me (and you, the Collective whom I call Christ) here.
I can sense a new era coming before me in my personal life. And perhaps as a Whole according to those I listen to. For what one does affects the whole.
It is from my personal existence that I bear testimony that I know is relevant to the teachings of Jesus.
It was not that long ago that I asked the powers that be for the words and language that would communicate what they wanted me to share with the United Consciousness of Christ at this time.
I am certain……(Forgive me, I have to pause here for a minute and explain something. I used to say I believe but my studies of A Course In Miracles has shown me how walking in the witness of the Holy Spirit gives an individual certainty, so you will hear me speak with an “I am certain,” rather than an” I believe.”)
I am certain that I was told that it would take a physical experience to give me the words to speak what needs to be said by me at this time.
I do not like pain and I am certain that the many dreams I woke from that had me being counseled very thoroughly had to do with preparation for the breaking of my right femur and tibia (the bones in the lower part of my leg).
It would not only have been to prepare me for the breaking of my bones but for the interactions that I would be having with several individuals among those who would be called to give me assistance at that time and during my recovery.
Even the path and location of the mishap were reviewed several times in the weeks prior to the incident. I looked at that spot and I said, “do not go there, walk ahead and turn up this way because that can be treacherous on a good day.”
It took a few weeks after the accident before I realized that my devotions had been too steady and stable for this to have come upon me out of the blue. And remember, there are no coincidences. I had to have been prepared for it and it had to have been the answer to my heart’s desire.
I heard today, “We can use all pain as a way to shift ourselves.” Confirmation to me of what the Spirit has been teaching me these past several weeks. I began this writing at least three weeks ago and the world has shifted with the war in Ukraine. I believe, as do others that the Collective is changing their belief in the power of a few to believe in power given by the Divine Source to each of us individually.
The pain of the break and its subsequent consequences has taught me about myself on a physical level and about the human condition as we experience it today.
It has echoed through my soul and shown me that humanity as a whole is very much aware of its fragile state and, while the ego keeps us distracted, it cannot quite calm the terror that we actually have given ourselves to live in.
I hope that we understand that this is not at all what God intended for His Son to experience.
From ACIM Workbook Lesson 49:
God’s Voice speaks to me all through the day.
1. It is quite possible to listen to God’s Voice all through the day without interrupting your regular activities in any way. ²The part of your mind in which truth abides is in constant communication with God, whether you are aware of it or not. ³It is the other part of your mind that functions in the world and obeys the world’s laws. ⁴It is this part that is constantly distracted, disorganized and highly uncertain.
2. The part that is listening to the Voice for God is calm, always at rest and wholly certain. ²It is really the only part there is. ³The other part is a wild illusion, frantic and distraught, but without reality of any kind. ⁴Try today not to listen to it. ⁵Try to identify with the part of your mind where stillness and peace reign forever. ⁶Try to hear God’s Voice call to you lovingly, reminding you that your Creator has not forgotten His Son.
I saw the animated movie, Moana again recently and I cannot help but see similarities in the teachings of Jesus and what I see there. Te Fiti is Christ as a whole which is the creators that WE ARE MEANT to be. Teka personifies the ego-mind and its desire to earn love or to destroy whatever it sees with its anger and hate. Whereas Maui mimics the belief that humanity is the one running the show and bringing all the wonderful things to pass instead of giving the Creator His due acknowledgment and gratitude. We like to praise our demi-gods as we set them up to have power over us.
The ocean reminds me of the Holy Spirit that guides, directs, and testifies, over and over, that you are the Chosen One. We each hold that position, it is not just for a special few as Lesson 49 shows us.
As I go through this experiential process of physical pain and healing from a broken leg on the 21st of January 2022, I am reminded of the nature of the transition from ego-mind to right-mindedness with God.
The Atonement is only the beginning of the correction that the Mind of the Son of God needs to take to return to His rightful state within God’s Full Embodiment.
We are each a part of that. And any delay only asks for more suffering for the Son of God which you and I are.
Jesus shared his witness as a male and perhaps as the first consciousness to have considered the possibility of separation from God.
In ACIM Jesus states he is the first to receive the Atonement and the undoing of the belief in something so impossible as creation being separated from the Creator.
I strongly suspect that there is a feminine witness to come forth that will be able to endure the emotional and psychological tortures that the ego places upon itself and will be able to survive and thrive in the Kingdom of Heaven upon the earth itself before it has fully transformed and been restored. We are all a part of this as we avail ourselves of the Atonement.
ALL will understand eventually, and God does not play favorites even if Jesus does ask us to play certain roles in the Universal Plan that will allow all parts of the Sonship to see the need and desire to return to the truth that there could be no separation from God or each other.
The ego-mind that was created at the idea of separation has participants as well but they are still part of the Sonship and our prayers of forgiveness and well-being need to go out to them.
God is mindful of each of us and wants us to return to the remembrance of Him that His glory may shine through His glorified Son whom God sees as One Whole and as His Beloved.
When God looks at any part of the Sonship He sees the whole Sonship and in that knows each and every part intimately. Believe me, you matter to HIM.
We want to seek to withstand what must be and know that it will not overwhelm us, that God IS, and all that is not of Him is not lasting or consequential in the long run.
Commit to the human side of existence, by being willing to feel all that it offers and focus on the Kingdom of God, at the same time.
Humanity has a weakness to be suseptible to mind games like “letting people get inside your head” but we must exercise the strength of our faith to move beyond that, knowing that God is our Guidance and NO OTHER has the ability to take that position.
Even if we convince ourselves that it is possible or desireable for a time. We can choose differently today.
We can know that there could be no other True Guide for ONLY GOD IS and that means ONLY HIS WILL IS REAL in any true form at all.
We can recognize that to “go after” or “attack” any individual for ANY offense means that you support the ego’s idea of separation and that to punish them is only an attempt to destroy yourself who is THE SON OF GOD.
I am NOT saying do not have boundaries and stand in the Atonement.
I AM saying that the idea of restitution and punishment must come to an end.
Because it serves the ego-mind of mental illness and does not serve truth.
It can even feed the idea of grandiosity as one claims superiority over another by deciding what is worthy of punishment.
It means we must place any situation in the hands of Jesus and the parties involved in orchestrating the Universal Plan and pray that healthier choices will be made by each, and that they will recognize their own value no longer feeling the need to harm or contain (imprison) another in any form or fashion.
THIS, to me, is the MIRACLE of A Course In Miracles because it reveals the Son of God to Himself.
Don’t get me wrong. I know it will not change overnight and there will need to be consequences for a while but just be aware that for all who get consequences there are 1000’s of attacks against humanity that go unidentified because we have driven it into the darkness and we need to be the light to clear out the darkness that holds humanity bound.
We can no longer excuse atrocities and find justifications for them.
At the very least pray a prayer of forgiveness and wholeness into the situation. This needs to be our attitude as a society and IT IS the attitude of the ATONEMENT that understands that we are all connected.
Today civilized ideas of “privacy” protect offenders who would manipulate and attack their own flesh and blood to declare #1 their existence and #2 its ability to destroy itself and others, and that no one can stop it. This is what the ego calls “freedom”.
Do not refuse to see.
That makes you an ally to the darkness.
We must recognize that not one of us can hurt without all being in pain. We are a Collective, a united entity. This will change the world we live in.
Let us not tell our children we will keep them safe when the truth is our hands are tied and they KNOW it. Do not teach them falsehoods but be honest and let them forge a new world and bring the Kingdom of God to earth.
Teach the children of our united connection to divinity and speak to them of the inner voice that will guide them when they understand this.
We need to choose to get on the same page as a Collective so that freedom is understood and self-worth is not a question for anyone.
We all see situations where we are concerned about abuse or somebody taking advantage of others who are vulnerable. The very young or the elderly are easily seen as targets but we are all wounded because of our belief in separation from God. The wounds breed fear and make us subject to manipulation and abuse of power.
Some of us are so adept at distracting ourselves that we do not see it at all.
That does not mean it is not there.
I see signs all around that walls are built to trap people in plane sight. For sexual trafficking but also for all other sorts of power plays and if they can do it in plain sight and not be called on it that just adds to the “rush” of the “fix” of the offense for the perpetrator.
Mind your own business they say but as Charles Dickens taught us Humanity IS OUR BUSINESS.
We are of One Mind as the Christ and all that you do or think affects me and mine. So be mindful of what you observe for entertainment. There is no such thing as fictional abuse because all thought has life in some form.
Even war is not the result of any individual or even a group. The presumed ability to keep secrets or have “skeletons in a closet” are what makes it possible.
War is the result of humanity ignoring the atrocities that are taking place in our everyday lives.
It is the Christ Consciousness roaring and demanding that the truth be SEEN.
All of these outbreaks of war and criminal behavior, terrorism, and shootings are the symptoms of the psychotic illness that the Mind of Christ is currently trapped in and as long as we see these things as separate from ourselves they will continue to manifest and it is ENTIRELY UNNECESSARY.
IF YOU WANT TO END WAR START TALKING ABOUT THESE THINGS AND CLEANSE SOCIETY’S CONSCIOUSNESS OF THE BELIEF THAT POWER TRIPS ON ANYONE ARE NECESSARY OR ACCEPTABLE!
What is the counsel of the Holy Spirit regarding attack or power plays according to my current understanding?
To put a spotlight on the situation generically, with forgiveness.
Our individual stories give us the language to tell the Son of God what He is doing to Himself. And to expose it for the NONSENSE that it is.
Acknowledge the betrayal, abandonment, and abuse you see in your life and forgive it. Call it what it is in forgiveness and establish new paradigms of healthy boundaries that allow all to be free, safe, and prosperous.
Do not fear the harm that can come to the body. Understand that the greater loss is what can happen to the mind and heart of creation.
These are the things that I want to implement into my everyday existence because I believe it serves the Whole of the Collective Consciousness of Creation/Christ.
Till next time, God bless, bye for now.
Breaking a leg can be the catalyst that adjusts your mental clarity as well as your physical.
I am finding that accepting forgiveness as a lifestyle and allowing the Holy Spirit to be your judge places you in an interesting place.
(Living the Atonement)
Till next time, God bless, bye for now.
God knows who we are. It is about time we did also.
Show compassion to each other through forgiveness.
Forgiveness needs to be a lifestyle.
That is what the Atonement is all about and WHY it is vital for us to participate in it now.
Then trusting in the unseen power and guide within you to show you what you need to see is the other step to LIVING the Atonement.
Without forgiveness of the original error of belief in the possibility that the Son could be separated from God, the Father there is no foundation that equalizes us and gives us a solid ground to stand on and move forward until all are restored and God takes the last step for us.
Do you see how compassion is extended to all that is through the forgiveness of the Atonement?
We all have some form of PTSpD here. Be sure to show compassion for those with PTSD.
We are all going to have discontent from Post Traumatic Separation Disorder, a term I have coined to describe the result of believing we are bodies and separated from God.
Even Jesus and those in the spirit world have discontent because we are not aware that we are united in our minds and in God.
We feel disconnected because of the dream state we are in.
Brought on by the belief that the Son could be separated from the Father and the fear and guilt that has manifested with that belief.
It is important to maintain healthy boundaries. Choosing to have those healthy boundaries which will fluctuate throughout our lives helps us to be the ones in charge of our “awakening” to where and who we truly are.
If God simply showed us our error by showing us the contrast between our true selves and the dream state we have created we would be overwhelmed with fear and we would not come to our awareness within ourselves.
“This would demonstrate that the perfect (*that is you and me, folks!) were inadequate to bring THEMSELVES to the awareness of their perfection, and thus side with the belief that those who have everything need help and are therefore helpless. This is the kind of “reasoning” which the ego engages in, but God, Who KNOWS that His creations are perfect, does not insult them. This would be as impossible as the ego’s notion that IT has insulted HIM.” (LHCM T 6 E 10)
This next section will be long. It follows the first in the text. I feel that it has importance to message that the Holy Spirit is trying to share here. (Yes, it is His message. As I teach it I am learning it and I am grateful that I have this opportunity.)
“That is why the Holy Spirit NEVER commands. To command is to assume INequality which the Holy Spirit demonstrates does not exist. Fidelity to premises is the law of mind and everything God created is faithful to His laws. Fidelity to other laws is also possible, however, not because the laws are true, but because YOU MADE THEM. (*I will break up the paragraph for ease of reading.)
What would be gained if God proved to you that you have thought insanely? Can God lose His own certainty? We have frequently stated that what you teach you ARE. Would you have God teach you that you have sinned?
If He confronted the self you made with the truth He created for you, what could you be but afraid? You would doubt your sanity, which is the one thing in which you can FIND the sanity He gave you.” (LHCM T 6 E 11)
Each of us ARE traveling on this road to accepting who we truly are as God created us.
WE give ourselves a lot of challenges by thinking we are separated from God. The Atonement undoes the error within you. Even once you accept the Atonement you still will be living in a world that was made by fear and guilt.
What the Atonement gives you is the understanding that just as YOU received the witness of forgiveness about the original error of belief in the possibility of separation from God SO will each one of us.
Compassion for one another, even while maintaining healthy boundaries is vital for our well being and progression back to full cogniscence of God.
See the role they play, while knowing that you may have no way to fix it. Set boundaries rather than attack.
The Atonement does this.
I love how smoothly this reading flows into an ever-blossoming understanding of compassion for one another! ❤
Do not take for granted that it is your right to know the mind of one another. Remember you are ONE.
This could get tricky!
We have been taught for a few generations to “get a thick skin”,
“bite your tongue”, “turn the other cheek” (which means knowing that no one can harm you), and the list goes on. I am sure you can think up many such instructions yourself in all walks of life.
I am not going to say drop all of those altogether.
I am going to ask you to
1: Do not second guess yourself when you feel something is out of place because it is your inner guidance system allowing you to see or hear what is going on in another person, and
2: Acknowledge within yourself that ALL are worthy of respectful and dignified interactions.
I am going to include animals, plants, and the earth herself in this scenario.
And do not forget that YOU are worthy of the same things.
As you listen, the Holy Spirit will guide you as to what that means to you, and how to progress in any given situation. The point is to recognize it and begin.
This is the active part of undoing the belief in separation from God and one another.
Privacy should not protect attackers. Authorship is given to you by God.
Authorship in A Course In Miracles, according to Jesus, is the only true authority and it is given to you by God at your creation as part of the Sonship which is Christ.
If this were understood privacy would not be an issue or concern at all.
Acknowledging this and the previous message would “bring the light” to our thoughts toward one another and would expose would-be attackers (which we all are in various forms and degrees).
Because basically, all trauma that we impose on one another is revealed and identified in our form of communication.
I am saying that I believe that criminal behavior is “typically” identifiable long before any action is taken by an individual.
Do you see where proper training and awareness could lift our societies into a whole different state of being? One might even call it “a dream of heaven.”
True charity IS equality recognized in all that is; Divine Timing only APPEARS to be different for each of us as we make our way to the Atonement and back to God.
Time is not a true principle. Only fear through guilt and shame hold us here.
We are a united whole that has convinced itself that it is divided and separated. A caution here: divided is not the same as individualized. Divided has to do with our mental union with the Father that we have denounced and which boils over onto each other as well. Individualized has to do with the creation that continues since God thought of extending Himself through His Son.
To say that we are delusional at this time is a gross understatement.
And we are so, united and individually. The ego-mind which was created after the belief in separation was accepted has us tangled up in many false beliefs that appear true.
The pure love of Christ, known as charity in the Bible, is the recognition of Divine Fulfillment in all that we see, including ourselves. It is the acknowledgment that God gives to all His creations equally and to do otherwise would remove Him from being God.
Charity/equality and authorship recognize means that to bash or lift anyone or anything in the world of form or ideas is to do so to yourself.
This seems like a summary of all that has been said before in this reading.
We ARE what we believe and teach. And everyone does both.
We can choose to be completely on the side of the Holy Spirit and lift ourselves and one another.
I believe this!
The ego does not. The ego says that freedom must allow you to flip-flop whichever way that you want to. But that does not make sense in the light of the Holy Spirit and God’s true essence.
God does not flip-flop and neither would His creations in their true state as He created them.
You may stumble and fall and that is okay. Your Loving Father will pick you up and set you on your feet again.
You are perfect already.
You only think that you are not and that is what the Holy Spirit will help us to undo.
He will allow US to discover our perfection and rejoice in it.
The “falls” we make are not lasting or real and we will find ourselves rejoicing as once again we remember who we are and Whose we are.
What we want to do now is to take the first step, then another, and another, and another. Until eventually we arrive at the end of the journey without distance and know ourselves, our brothers, and our Creator.
I have received so much from this reading and my experiences of late which I will share soon in my next post.
Till next time, God bless, bye for now. ❤
It is Possible For Humanity To Comprehend Its Divinity
And it IS imperative that it do so.
The world of ego where there is no real substance and only smoke and mirrors or cardboard and duct tape may still be satisfying for some temporarily, and in an eternal sense that temporary could be a million years or more.
This is not who we truly are though.
We are divine creations of a Loving, Attentive, and Gracious God who knows we will get over our tantrum sooner or later. ❤
You are not able to bash another without bashing yourself. When you build up another you build up yourself as well.
When we speak about what hurts each other are we bashing each other?
Or are we looking at what we are doing to ourselves and how we are denying the love that God so wants to share?
Is not His opinion and His outlook the one that we want to be focused on?
When the ego is in charge, we are taking circumstances to be personal attacks on our value.
Knowing that we ARE the creation of God and ALWAYS as He created us when we acknowledge that which harms one another in any way we want to be looking to remove blocks that stop the love that God has waiting for us all.
We do this by remembering we ARE the creation of God and ALWAYS as He created us no matter what presents itself to say otherwise.
If you will only acknowledge this in your heart and mind you will be changing the tide of the course that humanity appears to be on.
It is as little children, we partake in the Atonement and grace causes the world to disappear as eternity meets our gaze.
No matter your age, you are a CHILD of God. And will ALWAYS be as you were created.
That knowledge, and it is knowledge because it comes from the Holy Spirit, takes the sting out of the world and its sorrows.
You know that the confusion and death that the world appears to be founded on is not the Kingdom from which you come. And never will be.
This is the witness that fills your heart with joy and with peace.
Patience is natural to one who trusts God because he knows that nothing real can be threatened and that all that is unreal will fade away.
I know this to be true in my heart of hearts. You can know it too!
It is right to want to know how another truly is.
After all, we are a part of each other. This gives us meaning. Being a part of the Sonship of Christ and of Christ within the Father.
When I attended the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints we had Visiting Teachers and Home Teachers. It at least seemed like we looked after one another.
It was a practice that helped me get used to the idea that I represented Christ.
Today, with the assistance of A Course In Miracles and the Holy Spirit, I know that I am a real part of the Christ-Sonship as is all of creation.
I am not sure that I believe in visiting people any longer but I do believe in having a portion of my heart focused on a prayer of revelation for all to know the love of God and who they truly are.
We are united in the Sonship and one does not harm himself without it being felt throughout. Likewise with a blessing.
What we want to do is raise the temperature or variance between the two so that we are blessing more than we are harming ourselves. Believe it or not, we ARE moving in that direction.
Each of us takes a part in that. And it is internal work.
As such, we have the ability to heal the separation that is only as thick as a cloud on a foggy day. And I apply this metaphor to ALL that seems to separate.
Accept your “feeling out of place” as a sign that you are a part of the transition of the human consciousness.
It is this “oddness” that makes you capable of being aware of the need to forgive the world.
Because you are able to “see” the inconsistencies and disparity that the ego-minds have imposed on the entirety of creation.
Knowing that you are a part of the whole through the Atonement makes this much more palatable.
What evidence do I have that the ego thought system has put us in a decadent place?
The death and destruction that is all around us. Guilt, punishment, and fear make this world go round.
There may be temporary “flowers” that are allowed to bloom because our true nature in God cannot be fully suffocated but that just feeds the egos’ thirst for discontent. It declares, “See how it dies, and ever so rapidly, it must not be real.”
What is not real? Our joy that we experience in the presence of “flowers.”
We cannot imagine what existence could be without the darkness and all the thought-creatures of fear that lie there.
Use your discontent to help humanity push beyond its apathy and into eternity where we truly belong. That place where “flowers” always bloom.
We each have a higher self that planned our place in the world so that it might serve the greatest good for the whole.
I know that people speak of coming to earth to “learn things” but what I am understanding from Jesus in ACIM is that we have “knowledge” in our true state and knowledge is not separate from anything nor does it NOT include everything within its essence.
Knowledge, in a manner of speaking, is who you are.
Why? Because of who created you.
It was not your society, your family, not even your personality, it was God; the creator of you who is all-powerfull, all-knowing, and everywhere who endowed you with the same attributes.
There is a Universal Plan in place which Jesus and other ascended masters coordinate for our greatest good, and will restore the small part of Christ’s Mind that got caught in the innocent thought of the possibility of separation from God and itself.
We are all a part of this great restoration.
The pull of trauma is so strong that we need powerful minds that are willing to recall the exquisite (one could even say orgasmic) existence that permeates peace, safety, and even solitude in the sense of being whole and embracing all that this means. The assistance of the Holy Spirit is required to attain this state of mind, whether you acknowledge Him by that name or not.
How can we embrace this opportunity when we feel we must pursue more possessions, more popularity, more power, and more influence?
All of which come from a distinct belief in lack, loss, decay.
One will NOT EVER have enough!
Never having those appetites satisfied we also believe there could be other identities who would consume more of that we seek and leave us shorted and lacking once more. It becomes a case of “gotcha last”.
Which is so BOGUS, because in God you have EVERYTHING!
THE UNDERSTANDING THAT WE ARE ONE AND CREATED BY A GOD WHO GAVE US ALL HE IS WOULD ALLOW US TO RELAX AND EMBRACE THE ESSENCE OF WHAT WE ARE AND DRAW GOD’S LIGHT AND LOVE TO US!
This is where the Atonement comes in and we must be willing to accept a totally different mind than we have previously been willing to accept.
Forgiveness of the belief in separation is a must. Followed by a willingness to go into the dark (unseen) territory of FAITH IN GOD ALONE and not in the self or in creation.
Let the desire of the adrenaline rush and titillation come from letting go of the very “gravity-thought” that holds you to this world.
Give Jesus a chance and he will take us into a place where we will get all the “rush/fix/orgasm” we can withstand and it will not only be satisfying but will be everlasting in such a way that nothing can remove it from our awareness.
It is there right now. It is glowing within you. It is only guilt and fear that seem to cover it up.
If only we would fall in love with God, we would know our true place in Him and in all that is.
Understanding we are one in God and that He supplies all our needs should show us we have no power to influence others one way or another.
This is something that the ego-mind does not see or accept at all.
We look out at the world, especially those we feel close to or responsible for, and want to make things all better for them.
Or maybe it is those who have more than we do or something we feel is lacking in our lives whether it be love, influence, education, or power. Then we want to strip them of it, even if that STILL means we will have to do without.
I bore several children and watched them grow. I had some impact on who they are but let me tell you, each one decided who they will be and how they will engage with the world.
It comes from within us and this is as the creator designed us. It is good.
While we cannot “fix” others, we can accept the Atonement and take our place in bringing light, healing, understanding, and knowledge into the world.
Each of our lives reflects the particular circumstances and scenarios that would awaken a discontent so strong that we would be willing to let go of the world we see and have Jesus replace it for us as we enter the Atonement.
Whether you were born to struggle or you have abundance and see the suffering of others, maybe you fear others will take it from you, or a discontent within that says “something is not making sense here”, that is a gift and a blessing to us all!
Because it can bring you to a willingness to look for a “better way”. As it did for Dr. William Thetford.
Do not look to the world for the remedy. You will not find it there. It is within you and in God, who created you.
And it is manifested through living the Atonement, NOW!
Till next time, God bless, bye for now.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.)
- 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.
“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 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.)
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Till next time, God bless, bye for now.
I have never been one to take the easy road. Life is too short for that. Thankfully, I have had many marvelous characters in my life to keep me on a path of continual discovery. 2021 has been no exception and catapults me boldly into 2022. A new routine. From 24 hour days to 12 hour days. Treks to the Holy of Holies (the inner chamber of the temple) daily met with intention do not leave a person wanting.
You do not have to believe. But if you are curious, check it out. I am excited as all get out! #SunGazing, #DeathMotivates #IllusiveRelationships #HeavenonEarth #EternalLifeNow
What I did is begin Sun Gazing in all earnestness and with the intent to receive understanding from the closest manifestation of God within the world of the physical. I seek His direct instruction for myself and the Whole of the Consciousness of Christ so that I might use my body for His purposes of communicating God’s Love to His Son.
I knew it would be a rough year because I had four direct descendants graduating this year. That meant two adult households would be moving into the empty-nester stage and that is a very disconcerting time of life. And two of these adults were individuals I had very strong ties to and I felt the energy of the impact that this would have on them. It was a powerful energy storm, to say the least.
Then, beginning in October, several key people in my life would die, leaving their physical form and heading into new and different adventures. None of these were Covid related, just random deaths that in my life had not been common, or at least recognized by me as common, before that time.
Close to me would be three men with strong personalities that impacted my life who would transition, none were immediate family, and all were up in age or fighting ailments that had plagued them for years, even though they had maintained an independent lifestyle. They were significant to me nonetheless.
There was also a female. A public figure. The last of the core group who brought A Course In Miracles to the world. Since I had stepped into the stage of ACIM public forums the language had altered a bit and she left the world, for the most part, opening the door for interpretation and greater understanding of the Course, in my opinion anyway. For this, I will be eternally grateful.
While one could easily argue that relationships that we have in the world are not manifested by atmospheric conditions it would not be difficult to understand that the individual parties in any “relationship” have their own perspective seen through life experiences and interpretations likely unknown by the other party.
I had thought through much of the year that I would remember 2021 as the year my family died. Today I realize it is the year that “the world” died for me. A result of eight years of intense personal study of A Course In Miracles.
Never again will I look upon anything or anyone as I have in the past. I have let go of expectations and more importantly the need to change anyone else. That does not mean I will not teach. Because that is how we best learn. It does mean I will be taking better care of myself in the days ahead and letting others do the same for themselves, or not if that is what they wish.
The Spirit told me over and over again that right here is where I am to stay. In these physical surroundings that are nearby so that when I am finished with my earthly walk those that currently have input can take care of my physical affairs easily.
I know that the near-death experience that I had at 20 prepared me for a lifetime on earth and the ability to go through the delusions of the world by holding fast to my memory of the love that Jesus and God extend to me and to all other’s that make up the Sonship of Christ.
In my 40’s I recall the sense of dying and going to heaven as I was given answers to things that had plagued me for decades. It had to do with verbal abuse and confirmation by the Spirit that it was happening and not just my over-sensitivities. Since then my life has warp-speeded in understanding, so much so, that I have “died and gone to heaven” many times.
The life I have lived would manifest what kept me alive in my 30’s when I would not take my life because “I did not want to have to watch my children go through life and its challenges and not be there to assist them”. Little did I know that this would be exactly what life would give me.
I have found out at the ripe age of 65 that there is little that I can do for them or their children. Oh, I have had some influence and my strength has given them courage in ways they may not admit but the Spirit bears witness to me.
They are grown now and their path is clearly chosen. Christ and God have no part in them or so they claim. That is what they believe and it is not my place to argue with them or convince them otherwise. And the ones who acknowledge Christ see a judgmental God that I no longer see.
I remember phrases like “bite your tongue” and “grow-up” when I was a teenager trying to understand the landscape of life. Today it is “let it go” put to song and cinematic glory to tell us we have no right to question life as it has been given and perceived by humanity. But the grandeur does not make it a truth.
Rather than find out what life really is, we accept distractions, addictions, and temporary sensual comforts of all sorts to give us a definition of life. And with that, we count ourselves blessed.
It feels as if the way they use this gives license for those they deem worthy as able to say whatever they will and not be questioned as well as to tell those whose words they do not approve of to be still. It is really disturbing whether it is done knowingly or not.
Jesus was not telling us to be quiet or not acknowledge error but rather to be mindful of the Holy Spirit who will shine the Atonement through it so that we may be directed in the path least destructive for correction. Keep in mind that no one will be forced into a recollection of God before they are willing to do so.
I have been recording my understandings of the Workbook of A Course In Miracles which I will publish this spring. A second volume will be my comments on issues that came up in conversations online. They are on topics that I would love to have heard about when I was a teenager and trying to figure out how to manage in the world.
Jesus Christ was the first individual consciousness within time to understand that he had not truly separated from God. He received this understanding from the Holy Spirit and I also believe he had a memory that you and I do not. One of being one with God. This is why we may have faith in his witness of God and that union.
Sin and hell are an impossibility because God IS and only His Will is done. Jesus became Christ, the Son of God by forgiving the belief that the Son could be separated from the Father. This would also forgive all of its consequences, whatever form they may take or however long that may “appear” to be real.
The Atonement realigns our psyche with God’s Will through communion with the Holy Spirit and will literally lead you to heaven on earth and eternal life because the past and the future no longer control who or what you are.
At first, I was thinking of the fact that the solar energy will actually sustain us to the point that food is no longer a requirement. I had a two-week experience of detox and losing my appetite for food entirely. This was very new to me as I had fasted in years past but never lost my appetite.
It was a disappointment when I shared my adventure with the leader of an online group I was in and they talked about how people have to eat etc. as if I did not know how to follow my own spiritual path. So after losing 20 pounds I stopped going to the sun and in about four days I was able to start eating again.
To be fed intravenously by the Holy Spirit is something that I experienced during my years of working in the temples of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It is being in the presence of God with the intention of receiving what instruction He would have for you, knowing that it is received by your spirit and would come to your awareness as it was needed or you were ready to hear it.
This is the way that I approach Sun Gazing and the results have been incredible. I have deep awareness and awakenings of a spiritual nature. My psychic abilities seem to be improving as well as my emotional stamina and tolerance. Or is it endurance and patience? Perhaps they all play a part in the scenario.
For those familiar with my writing, you may notice a deeper resonance, especially with the post from 28 December 2021. Deep and wide are my thoughts and comprehensions within my sphere of association in the world.
After the gazing, I do my devotions in the presence of the sun often sitting in my car to do my reading. In the future, I plan to make better use of the moon’s energy as well. She may well pull the tides but I also believe she has the capacity to assist us greatly in our spiritual and metaphysical understandings and potentials.
In the past, I tried to listen to those around me; authority figures of all sorts, peers, and professionals. In my late twenties, I entered a church that claimed it had the authority of the priesthood directly from Jesus Christ and I gave it my all for thirty years.
But there came a time when I could no longer support the things that were being taught there. Partly because people did not honor what was taught but mainly because there was a glass ceiling over me where my understandings had to be curtailed according to what those in the Priesthood understood and did not honor its own teaching that it is the Holy Spirit that one is to learn to follow.
I still follow the last admonitions that I remembered from the leadership there though; to follow the Holy Spirit and to bear witness to the world of my understanding and testimony of the teachings of Jesus Christ. It is a path I have claimed for my own.
I cannot take full credit for this. Life circumstances which I believe angels and unseen guides have helped me live the life that I planned prior to coming here and put my family in alignment so that I understand I do blaze a trail that others will be able to follow if they are willing to do so.
It has been a grand adventure that so far has encompassed over six decades. Finding A Course In Miracles in 2013 was a gift that I will be forever grateful for. I studied it on my own for seven years before I went into a public forum to share my understandings.
I am very grateful for that solo study time because the way that people have interpreted this work, not to mention its various drafts and manifestations, has given the world a very false understanding of its teachings. That is my impression anyway. And the teachings of the Course are so diverse and do not hold fast to a common universal experience from what I have seen.
The construct of selecting Love over Fear has been misconstrued in such a way as to confirm Fear and its “impossible reality” by promoting the concept of facing it through such extreme measures as fire-walks and such.
The only way that FEAR will not be the dominating emotion of this world is to let our ideas about what this world is, go by the power of the Holy Spirit, and let Him show us another world entirely that resides in the heavens and is graced by God’s welcome presence.
But this does not mean that the conditions of the world will not be moving in a positive way. Bear in mind that the Son of God is not only that which is manifest on this planet. It is all that is, seen and unseen, in this universe and dimension and in all other dimensions and multi-verses.
In other words, the darkness we are so aware of here is made purposeful by God’s intention to create a “task-force” if you will, for those who are willing to teach throughout creation with patience, steadiness, and complete and stable knowledge that God IS and ALL IS WELL.
I believe with my whole heart that you and I have accepted this task. And while it may take several lifetimes to learn all we need to prepare for this work, what is that in the life of one whose existence has no end?
I acknowledge you, each one past, present, and future, with respect and gratitude for your willingness to enter this great work. You who are reading this are in the forefront, but make no mistake, not one will be left behind when all is said and God. God’s Son(ship) is whole. innocent, and complete.
