Page 51 Urtext of A Course In Miracles
The Atonement is the Only defense which cannot be used destructively.
Read that again. Post it somewhere. Write it on the walls of your heart.
That is because, while everyone must eventually join it, it was not a device which was generated by man.
There is a god beyond all that is perceivable by humanity in the flesh or beyond. Spiritual people today suggest otherwise and while the Son is in the Father the distinction is significant and it is clearly taught in the Urtext of A Course In Miracles.
The Atonement PRINCIPLE was in effect long before he Atonement itself was begun.
❤ Don’t you love this!
The Principle was love, and the Atonement itself, was an ACT of love.
Why are people to afraid to accept the Atonement?
Acts were not necessary before the Separation, because the time-space belief did not exist.
Acts, actions, experiences, lessons, oppositions, trauma, drama, not necessary.
It was only after the Separation that the defense of Atonement, and the necessary conditions for its fulfillment were planned.
It was living in the NOW before the Separation. We are being prepared psychologically to return to that place. Yay! I would be hesitant to take it literally here, within time and space, however.
It is in the mindset of the Atonement that we want to be. To go directly to “Now” is short-circuiting the process and allowing the “inflamed” ego another place to hide.
It became increasingly apparent that all of the defenses which man can choose to use constructively or destructively were not enough to save him.
Do you notice something here? Jesus is confessing to his own personal need to grow and develop within time and space. This is why the god of the Old Testament was so apt to appear vengeful or fierce, jealous even.
It was therefore decided that he needed a defense which was so splendid that he could not misuse it, although he COULD refuse it.
By whom? Why by Jesus through his witness of the Holy Spirit. This is the way that we want to be making decisions as well. And Jesus did not work alone. There were many, though not necessarily all of us, that joined in the “counsel” that he had. In other words, for a long time there have been those who thought it was best that a few made the decisions for the whole.
Jesus had the most gifts and recall of the presence of Father so he led things, but there were others and not all of them grew as Jesus did, into an understanding and acceptance of the Atonement. Some of them walked the earth and kept that “elite attitude” moving from generation to generation.
That is one of the challenges the Christ Consciousness faces; revealing those who got locked in that paradigm and refused to release it once the Atonement was revealed.
Disclaimer: This is my impression and interpretation at this time and it seems very appropriate for the things that are going on in the world at the moment.
His will could not turn it into a weapon of attack, which is the inherent characteristic of all other defenses.
The Atonement is the direct door through which humanity may claim their heritage and escape the cycle of suffering, pain, and death that has been established by the “inflamed” ego of Christ who thinks He has offended God by Separating from Him.
The Atonement thus becomes the only defense which was NOT a two-edged sword.
Thinking of the scripture by Paul that speaks of the armor of God, Ephesians 6:17 … the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. I remembering taught that this was a two-edged sword that could heal or tear apart a person.
I personally placed myself in the hands of the Spirit often so that He could extract a belief or action that was detrimental to me or others. His scalpel did not leave the scars that the world did when they taught me things.
Jesus says the Atonement goes beyond that. That the Atonement will not cut you, but embrace you “Just As You Are” scuffling off what was manifested by the “inflamed” ego and holding close that which is Divine and your true self.
It was not Jesus who did it, it was Father who does it once we follow the example we have been given by Jesus. Even the Christ that we are, the Son, did not create, nor fulfill the Atonement. It is ours because we recognize we are the Christ, the Son. Do you see the difference?
The Atonement actually began long before the Crucifixion.
Because LOVE was the Power by which you came into being.
Many Souls offered their efforts on behalf of the Separated Ones but they could not withstand the strength of the attack, and had to be brought back.
This is intriguing to me. It suggests that not all of us got caught in this false paradigm construct. It makes one think a bit differently about the Souls that we walk among, as well. One never knows who is sent to help redeem through their “costume” and who may be blinded by the idea of the Separation.
Angels came, too, but their protection was not enough, because the Separated ones were not interested in peace.
Angels protect! Have you heard stories of this or experienced it yourself?
I have! I know that this is true.
“The Separated ones were not interested in peace.” Remember this goes back to the beginning (if you want to speak in terms of time. Now we know time is not a truth. While time remains it needs to be understood that these entities have been with us since the beginning of time. Curious, isn’t it, how we do not know if we are one of the ones who accepted the Atonement or one who volunteered to assist them?
They had already split themselves, and were bent on dividing rather than reintegrating.
“Go forth and multiply” seems to be a direct order to do such a thing.
*This is fully my interpretation, I cannot say that I have heard anyone else say that outright. It makes sense to me though with all the teachings I know of Jesus, and others.
The levels they introduced into themselves turned against each
other, and they, in turn, turned against each other.
Levels created by establishing criteria for differences. Looks, coloring, education, wealth, position on the “ladder to success”, all have been used to create the levels that Jesus speaks of.
They established differences, divisions cleavages, dispersion, and all the other concepts related to the increasing splits they produced.
Not being in their Right Minds, they turned their defenses from protection to assault, and acted literally insanely.
Their Right Mind would be in awareness of their creation.
It was essential to introduce a split-proof device which could be used ONLY to heal, if it was used at all.
This suggests that Jesus worked with the Holy Spirit to devise such a device. I think that is significant because it suggests that the Holy Spirit does not want to take over and tell us what to do (which could not be always said for Jesus) and that he wants us to work out our situation so that we can grow into what we are.
The Atonement was built into the space-time belief in order to set a limit on the need for the belief, and ultimately to make learning complete.
Wow! “To set a limit on the need for the belief, and ultimately to make learning complete.” That sounds like freedom to me.
The Atonement IS the final lesson.
Shhhh, do not tell anybody, once you get here. Good grief you will be called the biggest narcissist there is. Or they will look at you with pity because you are obviously delirious. It is real, though it can take some effort to allow yourself to accept what it means.
It occurs to me that the term “final” has been taken to mean that when humans accept the Atonement life on earth will end. This is not what Jesus is saying at all. None of it had been. Not even the Final Judgment which he explains in the Urtext as being when you stop weighing in on your actions, etc, and judge the “inflamed” ego to be wanting so that you can accept the Atonement and your place in God.
Is that why this principle has not been taught by those who profess to understand the Course?
What really confuses me is that they think it is okay to promote LOVE as THE WAY without implementing the Atonement. I do not understand this, but it is not my place to discourage love in any form.
Humanity will “get it” one day.
Learning, itself, like the classrooms in which it occurs, is temporary. Let all those who overestimate human intelligence remember this.
TEMPORARY, creates a new paradigm for education perhaps. I would love to see education reviewed. Learning all forms of symbolism used is important and how about including understanding the energetic/thought world that we live in? Teach children meditation so that they might become the masters of their thoughts and their experience.
(HS questions last sentence, which she perceives as threatening.)
She is a professor, after all. Academia is her world in this lifetime.
The ability to learn has no value when change of understanding is no longer necessary.
This is because we are natural creators.
The eternally creative have nothing to learn.
Only after the Separation was it necessary to direct the creative force to learning, because changed behavior had become mandatory.
Please review this. Pray about it. Ponder it. Put it on the back burner.
The ATONEMENT IS YOURS. READY TO PARTAKE OF NOW.
You will change the world around you, not to mention past, future, and present.
The way “Be in the moment, now” is premature. The Atonement will allow us to get to that place.
I am grateful for those who have gone down that road because it has been preparatory for people to be willing to step into the Atonement, once they see the plausibility (the quality of seeming reasonable or probable) and need of it.
No way! PTSD may be but that is different.
Depression and all other struggles and traumas in this sphere have to do with the “inflamed” ego developed as Christ was thought of in the mind of God.
It may be that depression is part of the story you chose. If so accept it and do not beat yourself up. If not, be creative and picture the very world you see with new eyes. Focus on positives and not the negatives. Magnify your sincere desires. (Disclaimer: I am not a licensed therapist of any sort.)
What we will be or not be is made up in our minds.
Make peace with your story that you played out here.
It is not who you are.
It is only an assignment that you got to play out.
Did you discover that you were not any of the things that you thought you were?
And that neither was the world, or anything in it, what you thought it was?
Yep, then maybe you have awakened to the idea that you are something bigger than what you thought and that you are a part of a whole that is beyond your comprehension at this time.
And no matter the stories of joy, or betrayal, that have followed you in this lifetime, there is a greater awakening, if you will let this version go.
That is my faith and my hope.
I bear witness of “Christ” as all manifestation, and through the power of the Holy Spirit, pledge my faith in a Father that is overall.
Jesus, take my prayers and my thoughts and any strength and energy I may have and use it for the benefit of humanity. This is my prayer.

Sublimation should be associated with the SUBLIME.
Sublime: (in psychoanalytic theory) divert or modify (an instinctual impulse) into a culturally higher or socially more acceptable activity. purify, transmute, refine
It is really what is at the core of “peeling back the onion” that we do as we self-actualize.
There are many other so-called “dynamic” concepts which are profound errors due essentially to the misuse of defenses.
Remember: Our only correct defense is the Atonement that knows that we are One and forgives the illusion because it knows it is false. That does not mean that while in the illusion we are not affected by what happens there. It is our current “reality”.
Among them is the concept of different levels of aspiration, which results from real level confusion.
I am curious as to the types of aspiration Jesus was speaking of. Was it education, money, position, etc? Perhaps all of it and is this not what society is based on?
However, the main point to be understood from these notes is that you can defend truth as well as error, and in fact, much better.
Lord, let it be.
So far we have concentrated on ends rather than means because unless you regard an end as worth achieving, you will not devote yourself to the means by which it can BE achieved.
Your own question enabled me to shift the emphasis from end to means.
(Question asked was “how can we incorporate this material?”)
You and B. HAVE accepted the end as valuable, thus signifying your willingness to use defenses to ensure it.
This is necessary for any goal to be obtained. Thankfully, they both were willing to bring this information forward even though they were not able to incorporate it fully together themselves.
The means are easier to clarify after the true worth of the goal itself is firmly established.
Law of Attraction followers, are you hearing this?
Some of my challenge of late is knowing what to visualize. I have to say that the goals I had in my writing for the past few years have been fulfilled.
- To get people’s attention. I dare say that Covid19 has brought the world to a place where reflection on things instead of just running in the “rat race” has been achieved.
- To have serious discussions about serious issues. The racial unrest and revelation of pedophilia have brought that about.
- So what is next? I have to admit that I am so far out on the limb in visualizing a healing for humanity that is beyond the norm that I tend to freak-out when I think someone may be listening to me because I have no desire to lead anyone astray or into false hope.
- Yet it is Jesus that is telling us these truths, not me. I believe that he wants us to stop building outwards and allow him to step beside us in our thoughts to take us gently into the place where we will allow this world to phase out and we will become willing to allow Christ to be taken up by His Father. Sounds like suicide to the ego, but it is not. It is coming into our truth and fulfilling the connection we all long for, not to mention the exquisite joy and energetic stimulation beyond our imagination.
Everyone defends his own treasure.
The recent issues have caused people to think about what their treasure is and if it really is worth defending.
You do not have to tell him to do this, because HE will do so automatically.
The real question still remains WHAT do you treasure, and HOW MUCH do you treasure it?
Once you learn to consider these two points and bring them into ALL your actions as the true criteria for behavior, I will have little difficulty in clarifying the means.
You have not learned to be consistent about this as yet.
I have therefore concentrated on showing you that the means ARE available whenever you DO ask.
It has been the desire of my heart to do what I can to bring about what I knew as the Millennium. That thousand years when Christ would reign.
It was at New Years 2014 that it became my focus and I accepted the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit as my partners in the pursuit.
This was six months after I had been told that my daughter would die in a years time and as a mom I was desperate to bring “Him” here to help her.
Who would have thought that I would be here today, understanding what I do now.
I had known for a while that the only thing keeping us from having heaven on earth was the way we were looking at things.
And, even today, we are looking to make this world a better place instead of realizing that we need to see it for the illusion that it is and realized that there is another reality, another existence that is more true to our nature and “being”.
You can save a lot of time, however, if you do not need to extend this step unduly.
If only we could come together in this. Today it seems a lot more possible than it did even just a year ago.
The correct focus will shorten it immeasurably.
We can do this! Let it begin with me!
Papers will be very easy to write as this time is shortened.
Do not let the references to their college duties dissuade you from the truth that we can shorten the time of suffering on the earth.
This is something that can be done but it is an internal exercise and requires a great faith on a creator that is calling us home, into his loving embrace and presence.
He is the connection that we are longing for.
It is only in the Creator that we will find the “fix” we are seeking for the deep and profound longing that is felt in the heart of each individual.
May it be sooner than later. Till next time, God bless, bye for now.
The world is not going to change functioning on the same plane that it does at the moment.
We have to think outside of the box.
And why not give what Jesus has to say a chance?
Why not join him in the Atonement and stand united in the witness that we are children of God and that God is our defender and provider?
Please bring the Spirit for translation.
I have found it difficult to publish this message.
I feel the hostility of those in manifestation and do not wish to add to the trauma and confusion.
I ask Jesus to unite this message with those who are willing to hear it and to bless those who still struggle with their addiction to the false world that we have created.
Having joy alters the entire consciousness forward and back.
Standing in forgiveness may be the same.
I give thanks each time I wake up that I may consciously choose to forgive the confusion and separation we believe we have before us.
No force will be used by the Divine to have you accept your place in the heart of God/Creator/Universe.
You are welcome to stay in suffering as long as you desire.
Assisting others will be the obvious desire of one who stands in the Atonement.
One will recognize that to have healthy boundaries and faith in all that is, despite evidence that says otherwise will be the top priority, because it is that light that will add to the flame of another and encourage them to stand in that truth as well.
To stand by and let hell rage can be challenging but it is doable when you know it is all an illusion.
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder exists for everything in the illusion and does not have any truth in the Atonement.
How can there be anything but trauma for those who do not accept their own identity?
Compassion for yourself and one another will flow through the hearts of those who acknowledge the Divinity as their truth.
We are being guided.
We are being held.
We are being loved.

I share the maximum of what my witness is at the moment.
Bear in mind that the witness of a seeker may simply be the definition of the way to insanity because one has to step out into a path as yet uncharted.
The belief in separation from God was/is the first error of His Son.
This led to all sorts of confusion, and judgments, because there was no floor to stand on.
No foundation to move forward in.
This is what brought about time, as well.
Because judgments have no place in God, and that which is of Him.
How can purity be anything but pure and how can that, which encompasses all, create anything that is not of itself?
Judgment came from the hero of my story.
In essence, the self or at least the first self to identify as Christ.
This first one who thought he had separated from God.
It was just an error. He meant no harm.
His witness of being a “he” was not even something that he considered for eons of “time”.
He would fix it though. He would bring them to God, back to the Whole of what they were; for he remembered.
Was it his fault that they confused him with God?
Or that he let that be, in the hopes that it would help in his cause to restore … what he thought he had broken?
Forgiveness of this original error allows that all else is forgivable because anything brought about by the error is an impossibility.
It would be a long time before he could tell them to “just be in your witness of the atonement and the whole of Creation is influenced”.
Because he would have to learn that he was able to be in his joy (and receive the ATONEMENT) “line upon line” just like all the other parts of the Sonship.
It demands that a choice be made. In a place where time and space are not real how can we understand when that took place for him? But we can make that choice in our here and now.
A choice to grab a hold of anything that is positive and cling to it, rejoice in it.
The sun, the breeze, the smell of a coming rain.
If you want to lift the vibration of humanity then lift your thoughts to what a joy it is to experience life.
There will be no force imposed on you to regain your witness of who you are. But once you know, once you embrace your place in the heart of the Creator that you have never left, nothing can be withheld from you.
This is true of any desire you may have. The Father wants to bless His Son. Remember though that time is flexible and unreal and should not be the compass you are guided by. In other words let your desires be known and then let go of how they be manifested.
How many of us truly desire freedom and abundance for all, for instance?
I know we all SAY we want it, but do we want it really?
As long as we get our share, that is adequate, right!?!
And the older we get the more ways to justify how others deserve what they get or devise ways to camouflage the fact that we are glad it is them and not us.
And what better way to preserve ourselves than to give the enemy someone else to torture? A “sacrifice to the gods” so to speak.
Sort of defies our truth as One Entity, doesn’t it?
Those who would keep others under their rule often do so with kindnesses that are calculated to keep the victim content, just enough to make them believe that what is happening to them is either acceptable or justified.
If God says no force will be utilized then it stands to reason that this is exactly what the “inflamed” ego or what denies God will do. Attempting to prove that God is false.
See what I can do? Who will know? Addiction to power is one of the cruelest of addictions because it numbs the conscience and empathy is silenced.
In the witness of the atonement, there is peace, solidarity, and joy.
As well as freedom, clarity, and empowerment.
But you will face the monsters of the illusion as you enter there; please, see them for the illusions that they are.
From the place of God’s heart, you will not be able to see anyone else in any other light. They will be God’s child, the Creator’s Creation.
They will be one with you. And only because you have accepted your personal worthiness and place as the Son will you be able to see their value and worthiness as well.
As such you will be “one with them” whether they are in your presence or not. This goes for our loved ones who have departed in death, as well as, those who consider us enemies at this time or that we must distance ourselves from so that we have safe boundaries.
This does not mean that you will not see their “inflamed” ego or the ‘very real affects’ they have on themselves and others “within time and space”.
Remember the original Error of Separation and the absolute forgiveness it allows for all offenses, past, present, and future.
Acknowledging the Joy of Existence in the Moment will lift you and all of Creation.
Force is not a truth, it is an “inflamed” ego construct that believes it is possible to control or manipulate another, even to “possess” them or their “possessions”.
From the place of the Atonement, you will see all as a Whole, Complete, and in the Creator’s care, even while seeing the affects of the illusion created by the “inflamed” ego that torment and suffering are the just desserts of those “who dare to Leave the Creator”.
The Spirit holds you there and in the atonement you may find joy no matter what is going on, how much of an empath you are, or how connected you feel to All of Creation and the suffering it envisions it is enduring.
I know that sounds like a lot of malarkey, especially if you are currently are in any kind of acute pain, but that does not make it false.
Can there really any doubt where hell is?
The world will be healed as time closes in on itself and we are restored to our truth.
No, it will not happen overnight, but it can happen in the twinkling of an eye internally, at least for a moment, if you will allow it to be so.
And that can give you something to hang on to. I know it does for me.
May the time of suffering be shortened for the Son of God, is my prayer. In Jesus name and for Christ’s sake, amen.
Check out my aha’s that came at the same time of this writing.
If we do not see the original error, we will think we are detaching from something that is real.
Page 50 in Urtext of ACIM The text is bold. Find a free copy of the PDF here.
Error is not our reality.
Dissociation is quite similar.
Similar to “Denial should be directed only to error, and projection should be limited to truth.”
We want to use dissociation toward error.
You should split yourself off from error, but only in defense of integration.
Not in the judgment of the person engaged in the error as less than you or greater than, but in allowance of their freedom to choose the presentation of the error of separation, if they so desire.
Think of the child who loves the parent, be they whatever they are, we want to forgive them in our heart of hearts. There is nothing wrong with this emotion. Let it guide you into the correct use of dissociation.
Detachment is essentially a weaker form of dissociation.
I suspect that this is where a lot of New Age thinkers, spiritualists, and many eastern religions follow this directive of detachment.
Even the concept that ACIM instructors teach about changing how we look at something or asking the Spirit to “help us see it with different eyes” is along with the same context.
They are missing the Whole Picture and simple message that Jesus is trying to share, by complicating it, which is so typical of the ego.
Before you can detach properly, you must recognize that it was an impossibility in the first place.
Only the atonement brings this realization.
This is one of the major areas of withholding that both you and B. are engaging in.
Flight can be undertaken in whatever direction you choose, but note that the concept itself implies flight FROM something. Flight from error is perfectly appropriate.
I love that he allows this. “Flight from error is perfectly appropriate.”
There you have it, permission from Jesus to leave the error.
Jesus is often attached to an energy of judgment or guilt and that is so far from what he wants to share with us.
Distantiation is a way of putting distance between yourself and what you SHOULD
This is what I refer to as “healthy boundaries”.
Regression is a real effort to return to your own original state.
Do you see how Jesus is taking familiar terms and giving them healthy definitions that align with truth?
Our original state is a state of freedom, solidarity, and creativity.
The ego sees it as a place of non-existence, but this is not what it is. This is where faith, step by step, must be utilized (used or put into practice).
In this sense, it is utilized to RESTORE, not to go back to the less mature.
To restore is what Jesus is seeking.
To restore us to our awareness that our creator has given us our sovereignty and we do not need to stand in fear.
Over and over, the patience and perseverance of Jesus astounds me. He has been so misused and misunderstood over the ages.
Not that he, too, has not needed to grow and learn “line upon line”.
I am grateful for his witness and testimony.
And I gladly accept the atonement, inasmuch as I understand it.
Till next time, God bless, bye for now.
A beautiful post from a beautiful heart!

My relationship with him since I was little, gives me confidence in his guidance, alone.
Please invite the Spirit for translation. Beginning at the bottom of page 49. Bold is text.
The miracle worker is one who accepts my kind of denial and projection, unites his own inherent abilities to deny and project with mine, and imposes them back on himself and others.
That is a definition of “walking in the atonement”. Jesus will define this further, hereafter.
Note “inherent abilities” is something we have as a part of Christ/Creation.
YOU HAVE TO SEE SOMETHING BEFORE YOU CAN DENY IT. So, we want to see what is not of truth, wholeness, love so that we can deny it through forgiveness of the error and project the belief that it can be corrected.
This establishes the total lack of threat anywhere.
No threat because you know the truth of what you are observing, a child of God in distress and confusion.
It is very challenging for the human intellect to let go of the idea of suffering and threat to bodily harm.
The entire system of traditional Christianity is, in fact, based on threat and suffering. The very imagery of torture expressed in the “Passion” is blood curdling.
The only decent use of the Crucifixion week is to know it to be unable to defeat “Christ”.
In other words, suffering and death are not real to children of God.
This would not make physical and mental manipulations very functional for those who desired to set themselves up as leaders or superiors in life so the gore is reveled in and Jesus alone is allowed to be identified as the Christ to whom all suffering causes no lasting affect.
I asked Jesus to help me function not out of fear but out of faith. Knowing my thoughts, he said, “There is a difference between knowing what the intentions are of another and being fearful.”
I had been thinking of more than one pre-cognoscente awareness of the life choices of my children.
And I feel the assurance that I made choices that aligned with their freedom.
Together we can then work for the real time of peace, which is Eternal.
Do you see how involved Jesus is with our situation. No doubt there are others on the other side of the veil (of death) who work with us as well.
I inspired Bob (ref. to elevator man who took HS down from her apt.) to make that remark to you, and it is a pity that you heard only the last part. But you can still use that. His remark ended with: “Every shut eye is not asleep.” Since your own vision is much improved at the moment, we will go on a while.
Thankfully, Helen, was willing on some level to work with Jesus, even as she fought him mightily as will be seen in her choice of verbiage around pages 96-100.
Jesus is keenly aware of our receptivity to instruction and understanding.
Freud’s identification of mechanisms was quite correct, as was his recognition of their creative ability.
Meaning that how we use our cognitive abilities gives us the perception we see as a reality. I. E.
They can INDEED create man’s perception, both of himself and his surroundings.
But Freud’s limitations induced inevitable limits on his own perception.
Remember that we all have these limitations. This is why regular, daily study and meditation are vital to the growth of our right-mindedness and correct perception.
He made two kinds of errors. The first is that he saw only how the mechanisms worked in the mentally ill.
I suspect this means those that are very much out of what society considers normal.
The second is his own denial of the mechanism of the Atonement.
It makes me wonder if Freud did have a sense of the Atonement, then again we each do and we choose, like Freud to deny it, hmm.
Let us take up the first, because a clear understanding of the second depends on it.
Denial should be directed only to error, and projection should be limited to the truth.
How I look forward to the day that I am able to live in this along side others.
We want to deny separation and its affects. This does not mean ignore it. In fact, it means bring attention to that which promotes separation attitudes.
Our projection then, would be the belief in the ability for the error of separation to be corrected.
You should truly give as you have truly received. The Golden Rule can work effectively only on this basis.
Forgive, because you have been forgiven. Believe in people’s ability to let go of belief in separation, because Jesus has extended this to you just as the Father extended it to him originally.
Intellectualization is a poor word, which stems from the brain-mind confusion. “Right-Mindedness” is better.
Helen and Bill were seeking an understanding of how to get along. Being academics they felt that intellectualization was the means to the end. Can you just feel the angst from them both, but especially Helen. She liked her defined world and mastery of it.
This device defends the RIGHT MIND, and gives it control over the body. “Intellectualization” implies a split, whereas “Right-Mindedness” involves healing.
It sounds to me like the beginning of removing the sense of separation. Uniting body and spirit, with spirit controlling the body because it is a manifestation of the ego. The “inflamed” ego being “master of that world which does not exist”.
Withdrawal is properly employed in the service of withdrawing from the desert.
Follow this carefully, because Jesus is showing us the reversal of the “inflamed” ego’s error.
It is NOT a device for escape, but for consolidation.
Withdrawing from the place of barrenness and lack of sustenance for life, used here in the metaphor of the desert, heals as it unites the mind with true perception.
When we believe in separation, we think that others may not have capacity for change, or we think what does not harm my body or mind personally, does not affect me. And this cannot be truth. Because:
There IS only One Mind.
There IS only One Mind.
There IS only One Mind.
Please bring the Spirit for translation.
Allowing the Holy Ghost to take care of the future by releasing your hold on fear allows Him to clean up the attachment and trauma that existed in the past.
Today I understand that Jesus is the one who is orchestrating a lot of this. While the Holy Spirit keeps us on top of what is most vital for us to understand, in the moment, according to our willingness to receive it, and according to the outline of the Universal Plan.
Jesus knows how and where all the dots connect together with each of us. I suspect he even is aware for which life, or dimension, the energy of the Miracle is needed first, in this place we refer as time.
This is another reason why we want to walk in faith, knowing that we are doing a great work, even if we cannot see it at the moment.
The body is not your identity. When it is, it becomes an idol that replaces God. Think God first, then take care of the body as an instrument of communication.
This was big news to me as a former “traditional” Christian. It really made sense once I looked at it though. Nearly everything we do or think about in some way rotates around the comforts of the body.
All the ordinances that were in the Mormon church in the temple and outside of it (at least in 2015 when I was last a member in good standing) had to do with blessings that would apply to a body, a perfected body in the afterlife, mind you, but a body nonetheless.
I am not saying there is not validity in this, any more than I would of any other belief system within the illusion. But do not confuse the body with the “being” which is you.
The idea of levels (terrestrial, telestial, and celestial) is still judgment based on the scales of justice established by the belief that the Son can separate from the Father.
The Father does not love one part of the Son greater than another, nor does He bless one and not another.
Choice is said to be the criteria that divides us. God Is has no alternative. You Are has no alternative. Choice is an illusion of the ego that believes it separated from the God that it is.
I am saying that I seek to have the Creator’s understanding in all of this. I want the big picture. The biggest that I can get and that encompasses all of creation and includes all that we have ever been in form and without.
I know that the divine can only give us what we are willing to accept and receive. Another way of saying this is that the reception of the witness of truth will only be as good (or high) as the channel. Like a radio station, it must respect the laws of the individual receptor.
I still believe that Joseph Smith, Jr. received information from Jesus pertaining to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, however, the Son was not created to follow one of its parts.
That would be like the body following the thumb. It does not work like that. Each part plays its own role and benefits the whole.
Likewise, we do not want to follow anyone, including Jesus. We want to stand shoulder to shoulder with him, as the Son in our creativity and expression however we are inspired to do so by the Wholly Spirit.
I am now very aware of its limitations as a cult that defies what was truly trying to be taught there, which is to listen to the Holy Spirit and have a life in God as Jesus did and does.
Any time we give up our authority or autonomy, we create a cult. When we allow someone else to define what we are before God or each other, we create a cult. A cult is that which steals (with permission) the autonomy or authority from an individual to establish its being.
Whenever we put another above or below us, we have created a cult. It is almost a requirement of the ego and is why we must rule or submit in our relationships on the earth. You might say it is the reason we desire relationships at all.
To have an autonomous relationship does not serve the ego and becomes boring quickly when it does not yield to the manipulations of hierarchy.
Do not feel badly if you cannot maintain a relationship. Duality was never meant to be in the nature of the Son. Sexuality is going to alter. The idea of “connection” is going to change. Eventually, the body will not be needed to establish one’s identity.
That is the same thing that Jesus is trying to get Helen and Bill to understand in the Urtext, especially the first hundred pages or so, for A Course In Miracles. To be guided by the Wholly Spirit.
This is your identity: “Instead of “seek you first the Kingdom of Heaven” say “Will ye first the Kingdom of Heaven,” and you have said “I know what I am, and I will to accept my own inheritance.”” Page 95 Urtext ACIM
In this reference, Jesus is asking us to put our spiritual lives as a priority. This is our natural state and inclination. Look at a little child, the body is not their first concern, they must be taught this and indoctrinated to their cultural forms of caring for the body first.
We are “naturally” voices of the Father’s Love for the Son and the Son’s Love for the Father. That is why, in our true state, we glorify Him in all things and receive all that the Father has. Jesus wants this for us, as he has been able to receive it for himself.
Not only this but we leave out care for our energetic bodies which Qi Gong and Tai Chi do well to address. Donna Eden’s Energy Medicine covers much of this as well. Acupressure is a form of self-healing that could be taught for the benefit of the individual and society.
Our universal PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) need not be feared but looked to as the gift that it is. For it is the witness of the trauma humanity (ego) imposes on the Son of God that will spur the individual to accept the miracle Jesus offers through the atonement.
Why is it that we must reach the maximum extent of suffering before we are willing to turn away from a belief in this world of dysfunctional abuse and trauma?
That is due to the wiles of the ego that keeps us off balance and willing to accept half-truths and non-answers to real questions that, put to any test, would give very simple answers for how humanity can step out of this humiliating situation.
The belief that anyone else can impact a god beside himself, without his permission, is laughable. Yet that is exactly what the ego tries to convince the Soul of a Child of God. Namely, you and me.
I know that I am laying out a lot of heavy principles here that people may not have considered or maybe been aware of, but we have to stop being willing to drink only the milk of the gospel of Jesus and look at the meat of what we have been called upon to do.
Our egos can no longer rule. They must take their proper place within that which recognizes our divinity and worthiness before God and all of Creation.
Another deep, yet key thing to Time and altering our way of thinking, is that everything is really happening all at once. All lives, stories, deeds, everything encompassing His Story is happening NOW and any action releasing the impact of His Story (through forgiveness) affects NOW, as well as the past and the future.
Kindness is not lost. A prayer or desire for the healing of humanity, in any form, will not go unanswered.
Time will lose its hold on humanity as we step into the witness of the Atonement.
There are many blessings and experiences open to the possibilities of what lies ahead for humanity.
I fear only that we will be so excited, to step into some of those futuristic opportunities, that we will not take care of the task at hand.
That being to get everyone on the same page, or at least a majority that recognize the illusion created by our current perspective of separation from God and one another.
I know that people think if they read the Bible once, or the four gospels, that they know Jesus well enough to have heard all he has to say.
I cannot agree. Jesus is a guide and elder brother. He is the first who had consciousness outside of the Whole. He has acknowledged his healing and invites us to do the same. Hand in hand we will stand before our Creator and receive the witness of Christ as ourselves.
I have relied on my relationship with Jesus to be able to function in the world. Like any relationship, it involves more than a passing glance and judgment. If we are to be whole we must unite and allow all their autonomy.
Release fear by acknowledging your place IN God and recognize the still small voice of the Wholly Spirit that leads us to lift humanity.
Your body is a temple for the Soul that knows and praises God. Do not make the body you or you make it an idol that denies your personal power.
PTSD and the challenges that cause it can be turned into “gold” by allowing them to raise your consciousness to the place where your sorrows throw you completely out of the world and right into your true identity as Children of God in heaven on earth.
Let time be your friend by witnessing that you have all you need regardless of what appearances may be. Visualize this with all your senses. Feel it in your meditations. Extend it to your brothers and sisters. You are all His Son and you are all cherished.
This is my witness and my faith. It grows as Spirit sees I am willing to receive understanding. Take what fits leave the rest. But do ponder something daily that leads you to understand that which you are.
Till next time, God bless, bye for now.
Please bring the Spirit for translation.
Your personal experiences and feelings about them give new perspectives to old issues.
It is important to listen to ourselves and discover what we believe.
Writing a journal is one way to do this.
Record your interpretations about events in your life and in the world at large.
Remember this is His Story
It is His Story that you are living.
You are an ambassador for the Creator to share witness to His Creation that He is loved and blessed and that nothing can harm him.
You are the Christ who is awakening.
The first error was the belief that the Creation (Son) could leave the Creator (Father/God).
From this stems all dis-content and dis-ease.
Correcting this is as easy as accepting the at one meant that allows us to be Whole and innocent.
Forgiveness is a given from this true perspective.
No force will be used to get us to accept these truths, likewise, nothing can be held from us once we do.
Individually, we will each go through this “passage” in our own way.
And, given that we are here at this time to help humanity with this era, our receiving of “all that the Father hath” will not present itself in full in this lifetime.
Do not let that keep you from knowing that your desires are all fulfilled.
Remember, we are spiritual beings on a human journey.
And rest in assurance that all is well.
Your perspective and uniqueness is important.
You past is His Story, as is your future, your choices NOW develop you.
The only error you need to really get over is the belief in Separation from God and all Creation.
Nothing can force you to bear witness to these truths, though once you do, suffering ends.
This is not to say that you will not feel sorrow or pain, but that you will understand it has no permanence or reality.
And that is a cause for joy and celebration!
Till next time, God bless, bye for now.
Gems are to be found there and it is worth going through the false to find the truth.
One day soon things will be cleared up.
For now, we must dig.
This is a two hour podcast I did, it shows just how much we have to dig through:
