Where I Stand On Marianne Williamson for USA President

When I first heard of this I was startled to say the least. But is that not the norm in the public domain these days?

I wrote a lengthy essay and have sat on it for a few days.

I do not wish to find fault with good intentions.

Today I found a short way to give my response.

This is a quote of hers that I picked up on one of the pages I follow:

27 February 2019
Quote from Marianne Williamson on FB:
“Nothing binds you except your thoughts; nothing limits you except your fear; and nothing controls you except your beliefs.”

My response, as a student of ACIM for five years:
There is a collective consciousness that has influence as well, as well as, the influence that of the creator of this illusion. So I would have to, respectfully, disagree.
The again, perhaps this is hidden within the meaning of her statement? I am grateful she is doing what she believes is correct. 
I suspect humanity has a bit more work to do in the sphere of time. The identity of the individual must be acknowledged and then the individual identity of The Son must be seen and forgiven for a confusion of thought. This does not have to be a long process.
Then we may speak as a whole. Otherwise, we simply have another form of a few thinking they know what is best for all.
I have to say that her candidacy will bring A Course In Miracles to the awareness of more people. And that cannot be a bad thing.
Till next time, God bless, Namaste~

Universal Reading for 25 February – 3 March 2019

Universal Reading for 25 February – 3 March 2019

Loving Words from JESUS by Doreen Virtue
Artwork by Greg Olsen

The Universal Reading is intended to speak to the Whole Consciousness of humanity, which I know as Christ. Let it serve individually and unitedly in as far as we are willing to receive.

First Card: Be not afraid, only believe. (Mark 5:36) Picture = Jesus walking two children over rough rocks by a stream. He carries one in his arms.

What sweeter words could be given at this time when public voices seek to create tension and fear on a global scale.
Be not afraid.
Fear = false evidence appearing real.
Only believe.
Believe what?
That God IS.
That’s all.
From there you can find real answers to questions.
I am not saying that you can make sense out of nonsense.
But you can find the reason, and even purpose, of the nonsense if you know first, that the only truth is that God IS.
How can I say this? Because I have found them.
Second Card: Thou shalt love the Lord, your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. ( Mark 12:30) *It concludes with: “and with all your strength: this is the first commandment.” Verse 29 reads: “And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord.” Picture = A breast shot of Jesus with a white mantle over his head and shoulders and holding a staff.

The first commandment. Why? Because Jesus knows that God IS. Or was it that he knew that we ARE? Was his close connection with the Father of Christ? Or was it with the center of the Matrix, The Christ? In my heart, I sort of believe, that it was The Christ. Yet, in the flesh he was gifted, as we all are, the ability to know we are of God, of love, of that which brings joy.

He was connected to all the voices that came before. I believe that he was what we would call psychic. He knew the hearts of those living as well, so he had a bit of telepathy and observance. Meditation was not a foreign thing to him.

Was he speaking of himself? You shall love the Lord, your God? I do not believe so, anymore than that we should love ourselves and one another. And yet, is that not contained in the commandment as well?

The second commandment is like unto it, to love our neighbor as ourselves. Perhaps Jesus was teaching, in the first commandment, to love ourselves as Lord? To recognize our own divinity. Blasphemy, you say! And so they said to him. But think about it. If God is Omnipresent (Everywhere), Omniscient (All-knowing), and Omnipotent All-powerful), is there anything else that we could be?

We may, for starters, need to see God outside ourselves. I bear witness that as you grow in understanding God, you will find you cannot separate Him from you. I personally learned this through two key ways. One was trying to obey the commandments, as I understood them through The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. There are a lot of do’s and don’ts there. I studied repentance, which is changing habits of behavior and thinking. I taught the principle.

I learned about how we justify and make excuses for behavior, for ourselves and for others. I was a slow student. But I did not give up the journey. It was my lifeline.
Now that I am over that “hump”, it is not exactly smooth sailing. I can see God in everything, but I also recognize the confusion of the Son who believes he is anything but with the Father. That confusion attacks. And when it wants to draw others near it tends to suffocate the other one way or another.

And who is going to listen to me long enough to know what I am trying to say to them? This knowledge can be isolating, even as the knowledge of its truth brings comfort. It also brings the understanding that we simply cannot be separate or separated because our bodies is not what we are.

I said there were two things that taught me we are one with God. The second is my children. I found out that I would wait as long as necessary, eternity, if I must, for them to understand that I love them and nothing can interfere with that. Nothing they say, do, think about me, or anything else. Would God do any less?

I recently read the story of the Island of the Blue Dolphins, written by Scott O’Dell. While it is fictional, it is based on a true character known as The Lost Woman of San Nicolas. It is a fascinating story and I would highly recommend it. The point I want to bring out here is that she had been on an island for 18 years, alone except for the animals, sea creatures, and birds.

Two characteristics that were noted about her, in the weeks she was among people before she died of dysentery, were that she smiled all the time and that she sang.
I suggest only that “happy” is what we are meant to be. And that we are meant to lift our voices in praise, whatever that may mean to us.

Of course, right now, it is a private matter. Yet in our hearts, we can experience the joy and celebration, no matter what is going on around us.

For me, the picture with the white mantle and the staff suggests our personal divinity. The staff shows that we are not alone, that we have assistance. I would recognize this as the Holy Spirit.
Third Card: What things you soever desire, when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you shall have them. (Mark 11:24) Picture = Jesus with a staff, over-looking a river that curves, while two white doves fly in the sky.

Sounds like the Law of Attraction does it not? We create the world we see with our thoughts. When you walk with the Holy Spirit you walk in a continual state of prayer because you are looking to his assistance and voice to guide and direct you. That means that you are able to quiet the voices that come from everywhere else and hear the Holy Spirit, for He does not shout.

The world is yours, many opportunities are available, so suggests the mountain top and the vast view before him. Even though, the path may prove challenging. I wonder though, if the vastness is without or within. Where I am now, I believe that it may be a bit of both, but primarily within.

In our thoughts and hearts we look at the world in apathy, hostility, ambivalence, or peace.

The choice is ours, yet the two white doves are suggesting that a peaceful outlook is to our advantage. The staff is firmly in his right hand, suggesting to me that the Holy Spirit walks steadily with us as we maneuver through the world inside or outside.
Fourth Card: All things, whatsoever you shall ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive. (Matthew 21:22) Picture = Jesus in a wooded grove, with a large staff in his right hand and holding the hand of a young girl. They are looking each other in the eye with smiles on their faces.

There is water in the background. Flowers around the tree line, suggesting an abundance of moments of joy to be experienced. Jesus holds the rod or staff firmly, though relaxed, in his right hand. Again, that spiritual guidance and support.

There is darkness in the trees suggesting there will be times of challenge and uncertainty, but the light is definitely there and maybe the greatest light is found between the two. Jesus and the child looking at one another friendly, rejoicing, you can see light on both faces.

The little child is about five years old and she carries a doll which symbolizes to me the hope in posterity or children. Jesus, himself, is not the hope, but what is knows about his own identity and yours is.

This is why we can call on him and look to him as our elder brother and a friend. I know that I knew him as a child and I have a relationship with him that I would trade for no one.

I want to speak specifically to the role we play as children. And we all are, no matter what our age.

As children we are taught in the heritage of our parents. We do not know at the time that they are more confused than we are as children. As children we accept that we are loved by someone, something greater than ourselves. We are taught that we are not acceptable and that we must fear the world and most of all, ourselves.

We cannot blame our parents, because they went through the same process.
If I had children today, one thing I would teach them is that the world is filled with hate. That this is an illusion and that it is not what we are made of, but it is what this world is made of.

I would tell them that their best defense is to go within themselves and find the love that dwells inside of them. The self-love. True self-love is not afraid of others. It extends itself whether it is received or not. It knows that this is all there is.

This allows the child to learn the skills necessary to travel through a world of hate and its many guises. A few being greed or hoarding, envy, contention or bickering, just for the sake of bickering, and defeatism or expecting failure.

Like the singing Woman of San Nikolas, being happy is not a conventional or acceptable way of being in a world created through and for self-hate. A child, or anyone, needs to find ways to recognize and take pleasure in their joy often in a more private way. This is where the inner world is so important to understand.

These things do not come naturally to children. Well, they may come naturally, but they are often quickly forced to deny them by caregivers, or peers. Even if they are taught of love at home, the school environment, that most societies insist on, will force them to put them aside like the beautiful Irish accent or anything else that makes them different from “the pack”/mob/society they find themselves in.

Ask for things of light. Observe the dark in the world and in others. I do not support the “not seeing it” theory. It is real enough and does affect us and cause pain in this illusionary world. Just do not dwell on it, do not let the darkness be your identity.

“Believing you will receive”, your thoughts are so powerful that belief is a given. The wonderful thing about the human mind is that it can be reprogrammed. Have the courage to take control of your own thoughts. You will mirror this to others. And it will lift them as well.

Do not be afraid of your own strength and power. You are, after all, God. Of God, in God, any way you want to look at it you are of his essence. You are like the water drop in the ocean that is God. You are not the land that seems separate from the ocean. This is true of all of us and this is where true forgiveness lies. In this knowledge that allows you to forgive the one who mistook himself for anything other than the ocean, or God.
I know that my teachings are different. I apologize this went so long. Yet I follow the promptings of the Holy Spirit within me to bring you the best of what I understand this day. None of us know when our opportunity to witness in the flesh will end. And it is with this in mind that I send you all the love and positive energy that I may be a conduit for.

I believe in God and in His Omnipotence (Power), Omniscience (Knowledge), and Omnipresence (Being in ALL). I witness of Him in YOU.

Till next time, God bless, Namaste~
PS I do not know why the spacing on word press would not allow space between each card as I set it up, but I am okay with it. Hope you are. Be well.

Three Part Personal Message, Part Three, Conclusion

(Warning, this is a Rabbit Hole.)

Do I Belong In the Public Eye?

I have spent a lifetime thinking that I would go into the public eye some day. I was going to do something great, I just knew it. I would recover from this world of bully’s, wife-beating papa’s, and a place I could find no one to talk to or who could help.

I remember thinking about this when I was in third grade. I daydreamed of returning to the community I went to school in. I even had a little white dog in my arms, as I returned in my glory to bless them with my wisdom and repay them for the things that I had stolen out of the lunch bags, lockers, and lost and found. Little things that told me there was a better place somewhere.

No, I do not do that anymore, though I get accused through the years, because I know what it is like to be poor and I have been known to go Dumpster Diving. I am sure somewhere in a future history that will be the shining light on who I am for some who knew me. They will tell the stories of my degradation. I wonder if they will see the desire to recycle and to enjoy what has been given, as well.

(As a side note, that is also the year I remember attempting suicide in the school lavatory. I passed out before I did any damage to myself.)
***
I took a Children’s Writing Course when my youngest was about three or four. I would teach the next generation, I thought to myself. I remember writing about The Day the Farm Broke. The time my father pulled the car aside near the railroad tracks, before we got into the town that held the farm I enjoyed visiting as a child. With my little sister, about four at the time, sleeping in the back seat, he masturbated between my legs. I was so afraid she would wake up or someone would come by. My place of refuge had been demolished!

This is what I had to share with the next generation? Yeah! Right!

Besides there were five children still at home I was to raise, on my own, of course. The oldest had been torn away by life’s tide and was living with her dad. I had never been inner city, but I made a move about that time, that took me through the eye of the needle like nothing else would.

Within a mile of Minneapolis I got to take the children to an inner city church. It is a good thing that God puts blinders on us as we go into life, because I can assure you I would not have yielded to the education that I was going to get there, had I understood it beforehand. Ha, at least not in this life, right?!

Funny, how that is the way I feel, about a lot of life. Thank goodness that God sprinkles flowers, birds, a breeze, sunshine, a gentle rain, and other beauties of nature to allow us to have the opportunity to see the brilliance that is possible, even as we travel through humanity and its varying forms of insanity.

I had tapped into motivational speakers throughout my life and I bought success courses. I followed the latest pop-psychiatric literature. I read about communication like a fiend. I even joined my youngest in college, when she was ready and struggled through about six years of higher education, leaving because I could not deal with the male energy I felt coming from the younger classmates and others.

My daughter had her own space and ideas about higher education and I really had nothing to give her, except a witness of a quest for knowledge that it seemed, I could not stop if I wanted to. Not that I ever wanted to. I feel like I came into the world with a lust for understanding the non-understandable.

When I returned to the vicinity of my grand-children, after being educated for a few years in Salt Lake Valley, by the population and BYU, I spent the $10,000 I had in a 401K to take yet another course that would push me over the top and give me my legs as a speaker or educator.

Well, push me over the top it did. I had so much confidence between the course work and the EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique, tapping) that I was doing, not to mention the thirty plus years that I had spent studying the Bible and other spiritual works that I could find — that I frightened everyone.

One fellow made fun of me and took a note pad out when I stopped by to chat so that he could write down what I had to say. A few months, later I saw him at the college library where he was finishing up his eleven page paper on a concept that I had offered about his study of addiction. Which was, in my years of overcoming addictions and watching others with them, what the human creature did was simply choose to replace healthier addictions for ones considered unhealthy.

Confidence is one of the gifts promised for the dedication of searching and pondering the scriptures, but it scares the hell out of the people you go to church with. Even leaders, for you threaten their leadership. Which is silly, because leadership that does not give power to those they lead is not leadership. It is dictatorship, despotism, tyranny, authoritarianism, totalitarianism, etc.. Remind you of any organizations you know?

***

So here I am, five books under my belt. A 180 degree turn about in my understanding of life, and time and means to really pursue that position I thought I would one day hold. No immediate responsibilities to others. I’ve given the children all I have.

I could step out now and let the world know what I have learned. And learned I have. I am able to see things that would drive the most calm, insane. Yet, I still have peace in my heart.

I have lost all congregating opportunities, because the things I have been taught by the Spirit are so different from anything out there. I do not mix well in groups or one on one anymore. Do you think I am more of a threat because I am a woman? I am only now beginning to really “feel” or “acknowledge” in my core the truth of this. I have not been much of a feminist in the past. I am more into basic survival.

***

I could change the world. I have no doubt. But you cannot give a gift that is not received. You cannot make anyone receive anything. It has to be desired. It has to be believed in. No, the receiver has to have the desire to receive it. Or the ability to believe that it is possible at least. Or, is it the ability to believe that they are worthy of receiving it?

If life has shown me anything, it is that the treasures that humanity says it praises and holds most dear is not really something that reaches the sub-conscious. In some circles it is a hard and fast rule to trip each other up and one’s self while you are at it. Actually, I believe this applies to all of us and I believe that was what Jesus was trying to talk to us about.

Who am I to think I can get his message out, when he could not? Then again, who am I to not think, that if I understand it, that I need to try?

I cannot stop the research. I cannot stop looking for something that tells me I am off base. I cannot stop writing, because that opens the space for additional instruction from the Spirit.

But I am not sure that I want to pay to put myself in a position to thwart off Trolls, bully’s, and who knows what. And at this point of the game I have no one in the flesh who is willing to stand beside me in what I understand, though I have no doubt that many who have left the flesh are watching me and absorbing what I share.

Crazy, aren’t I? Not really. Perhaps I am the most sincere and transparent as I have ever been in my life.

***

I know that I have no tolerance for verbal abuse. I can tell when hater’s are nearby; the kind that have to drop you to your knees, whether you “get it” or not, just so they can get through the day. I do not want to invite that tsunami my direction and I believe that is what I would do if I made myself a public figure.

I will not stop the fight. It is a heated war, wherever you are, you are a part of it. And here is your ammunition:

1. None of this, that hurts or harms, is real or has any lasting effect beyond this pinpoint we call time.

2. Forgiveness is foundational, but it has to be the right kind. It has to be the kind that knows that the original creator of this “fake” world was confused and bewildered. And that he thought that he had separated from his father and creator.

3. You can change the DNA of your psyche by remembering that you are of God and that God is omnipotent/all-powerful, and so are you. Omniscient and so are you. And omnipresent and so are you. (Boy, that was a mouth full. This is the first time I said that. And yet, it must be if God truly IS at all. And I have witnessed and experienced too many things in my life to believe that he does not exist.)

4. What also must be recognized is that you are living a role that is predestined in the sense that we agreed to it before we came. There is still freedom of choice and variables here, as long as the main theme of your “role” is not disrupted. This is the component that messes with people, because they do not have a clear understanding of who and what Christ is and what that means in your personal life and to humanity as a whole. I dare say, it has been misunderstood for so many years by very sincere and dedicated people.

Let me just say I do not have any problem with you calling Christ or God anything else. Just as long as you get the concept of father and son. I really think that this is the pattern that we take after Him in, in terms of being created in His image. That relationship is key to establishing what we need to understand about ourselves, in relation to Source, Higher Self, or God, the Father of Christ.

***

I am just going to be me. If I were to get a publisher take me on, I would have to write to their tune and for profit; and that is just something I cannot bring myself to do.

I am not afraid of money, really, I would just give it away anyhow. The Lord has taken care of me this far, I trust he will see me to the end of things in this frame.

I am at a crossroads of needing to take that step, to get a publishing company to back me up, or stay steady on the path I know and can manage. I could do my radio shows again and I have several books to write, fictional and non-fiction.

I do not want the pace or pressure that celebrity would bring. I have done this in some work through writing for at least eight years and I know what my body, psyche, and emotions can handle. Besides, who knows what other shocks I will deal with.

A tough skin is not what I have acquired, as seems to have been suggested throughout my life. Instead, I feel on a level that, without the support of angels and the Holy Spirit, I could not begin to accept what I understand. The death of my daughter four years ago causes me to quake even today. I say that, even as I know that she walks with me now, and has helped me be able to handle what I have been given, and desired, to learn.

If another child dies before I go, I do not know how I would bear it. I am a walking bundle of nerve endings that is attached to angels and God’s grace, and that is how I go from one day to the next.

No, celebrity is not for me. But I will teach and give all that I have as long as I am allowed to do so. Besides I am so frigging’ gullible it is ridiculous. I would be sunk before I even got started. I take people at face value and often stand there with egg on my face as they move on. I do not mind. I just sink back into the shadows and lick my wounds, as the Spirit helps me understand what just happened.

It is the smartest course for someone who takes a road that no one else has travelled. Others watch me, but no one “has my back”, because they do not get where were I am at and this is okay. This strategy has allowed me to weather a lot of storms and circumstances in my life.

***

I would like to be a steady voice that adds to the understanding of Consciousness and let someone else “lead the pack”, if you will. I believe my role is more of the servant. I learned it as a child. It served me best to be able to hold my head above the roaring waters of deception I have found in the world. And besides, I can give someone another way to look at something and not have to risk being a guru or soul guide. I can clean the cobwebs out or sweep the floor, without having to be a brain surgeon and risking someone’s life.

I do not know what the future will bring. I know I have to continue this work and that I cannot be put in a position where I have to answer to anyone other than myself and God. You might say that, as a child I thought the world could be changed “out there”. I thought for sure someone else had the answers and I would follow them.

I was over 50 years of age before I finally accepted that there was no truth to that. Choices and circumstances have trained me to go inside and I have found depths that I did not know that I had. Life continues to teach me, but I do not need to step into the way of an avalanche, knowing I will be knocked down and made vulnerable. Yet, this is how I feel when I think of joining with others in the traditional way, of getting my message out there.

Then again, maybe it is the simple daily dedication to understanding the teachings of Jesus, as they pertain to Christ, that will rock this ship into a safe harbor. The Lord has carried me thus far, I think I will trust him into the future as well. I would rather pray that the Spirit bring those who are able to hear what I have to share into the presence of my message. And so it is.

Till next time, God bless, Namaste~

Multiple Part, Personal Message, Part Two

I am going backwards to the way I received these insights. But that is the way they are to be given, so I accept that.
This is my personal reading. I am going to do the Universal Reading from the same deck.

Loving Words from JESUS by Doreen Virtue
With beautiful artwork by Greg Olsen
These cards come with a scripture verse and picture of Jesus. *Please note that, while she used the King James Version, she did alter is some and not use the full scripture, only part. As always,symbols are open to interpretation. Guidance of the Holy Spirit is suggested. 

Knock, and it shall be opened unto you. (Matthew 7:7) Jesus knocking at the door with no knob. A brilliant golden sunrise is seen behind Jesus’ torso.

*I chose a card from this deck a week ago and it was this same card. What door would I knock on, if I could? I have a witness of Christ and I have a relationship with Jesus. Which is what the picture usually signifies. Can we not think that there are other things we would be allowed to understand or bring about if we only believed in ourselves?

*I would want the door of the Rapture. The Rapture was not spoken of much over the years in the churches I attended. I have come to understand it as the time when those who receive Christ will be lifted up. Mythology has brought it to mean a separation from those who do not accept Christ where the righteous are protected and the sinful are cursed and tormented, or at least abandoned.

*I see it quite differently. First, Christ is the Whole of Humanity, not any given part. So the Rapture will mean all of us going someplace, and since time and space are not eternal, this must refer to our comprehension or how we think about things. I wish to push the edges of the human psyche to understand the Rapture, which I believe to be a united consciousness among those in the flesh and those without that understands they are The Son of God, as a Whole. And that what God has joined together no human may put asunder (separate). Rapture also includes the sense of Bliss or Joy to me. I stand at the door and knock.

*I see the sunrise suggesting a new day for humanity. I will note that the same brilliance shines in the window of the door that Jesus is knocking on. Suggesting that you and I have the light within us that Jesus sees very clearly. He is just helping us see it also, not unlike those who can see auras around the physical body, we have that light that many, especially near death experiencers associate with Jesus.

I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. (Matthew 28:20) Jesus sitting on the hill looking over Jerusalem.

*Isn’t this a lovely compliment to the card previous? I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Nothing separates us from one another. Not from Jesus, your parents, your best friend, not even from the one you consider your worst enemy.

*When Jesus sat on that hill, it is recorded that he looked upon Jerusalem and with great compassion said in his heart, “How I would have gathered you like a hen gathers her chicks, but you would not have it.”. Mythology has given a Super Hero concept of this and suggested Jesus would protect everyone if they would let him. Rather I suspect that this is the concept that we are all one. He would have taught us the understanding of our unity and that there is no need to fear, as we are all one in Christ. The leaders of the church, at the time and now, could not get past their personal biases of separation and “see” what he was saying.

Ask, and it shall be given to you. (Matthew 7:7)
*A three year old boy examining something in his hand while Jesus sits beside him smiling in a lovely greenhouse. Red blooms to the right above the head of Jesus.

*This third card seems to repeat the message of the first, but in another way. Ask and it shall be given to you. Perhaps the child suggests that we likewise ask about anything and everything. There is a huge attitude among the living, and perhaps those not in form at the moment as well, that the answers just cannot be known. I take this scripture seriously. I believe there are things that can be known. Simple truths that humanity likes to complicate.

*Red suggests love, blooms suggest abundance. Since I have let go of the need to have something or someone in the world tell me how things are (noted especially in 2006 when I changed my name legally to Christa-Ann Faith Godsdaughter), I have been granted many magnificent insights to what the world is and what it is not. For this I am grateful. In my heart I take this card as affirmation that I am free to ask questions in the awe and innocence of a child and I will not be rebuffed or made to feel ashamed.

Be of good comfort; your faith has made you whole. (Matthew 9:22)
*Jesus sitting on a white stone ledge that brings to mind “the woman at the well”. Beside him is a young woman with her had on Jesus’ wrist as his arms rest on his thighs. Between them, in the distance is a winding path. The tree they sit under, may be an olive tree and from Jesus’ shoulders upward seems to be a white pillar. His robe consists of white on the left shoulder, violet purple on his right. And a cloth, the size of a lap blanket covers his lap and left leg, part of it resting on the floor. It seems to have a golden boarder with golden stars in the material.

*This card makes my heart sing! Repeated imagery for me of the hen gathering her chicks, as I consider being of good comfort. Faith: A big word. But combined with the words “has made you whole” means the world to me. My mind is playing with the imagery of faith allowing me to recognize my connection with all of humanity as the Christ and this brings me great joy.

*I do not know about you, but I do not want anyone left out. I want us altogether before God. The “woman at the well” was one that Jesus brought into his intimate circle at a time when she was thought to be an outcast from the society he was born into. He left no one out of his compassionate concern; the lepers, the money changers, the laborers, the prostitutes.

*Her affection and familiarity for Jesus is shown in the way she touches his hand. The journey may seem to meander, but it has a destination and the symbolism of the olive tree suggest an “end of conflict or approval of a higher power”. We are not on this journey alone.

*The white robe on the right shoulder suggests to me the innocence of humanity. The violet purple suggests the royalty or “divine calling” of humanity. I am not certain of the meaning of the red cloth with gold embroider, but it could embrace life (signified by the color red) and its connection to those things of the Spirit (signified by the gold, suggesting great value, and the stars, suggesting the heavens) that lift humanity out of the world of chaos and into their true identity. The size of the red cloth suggests something that applies to each and every one of us.

Summary

Knock, and it shall be opened unto you. Act, as if you have the answer, according to the knowledge that you have, and you will receive a recollection of what you already are.

You have always been a part of the whole and will be, even after this world ends.
Have the wonder of a child and do not be afraid to ask questions. The Universe smiles on this.

Smile, if only on the inside, because of your faith you are able to see Christ, The Whole.
I pray this has served you. The Universal Reading has been done and will be up soon.

Till next time, God bless, Namaste~

Multiple Part, Personal Message, Part One

I feel impressed to do something a little different today.

I am going to do the Universal Reading, but I am also going to share a personal reading and a bit of a NDE (near death experience) that I just read because it calls to me in such an incredible way.

Here is the NDE link:
https://www.nderf.org/Experiences/1june_s_nde.html?fbclid=IwAR1LwheEzoDFffTHRo-3Sutt-LrACF72VM5SVyo6efDI_UkEcutS9klwYds
I do not know why it is so long. They are not usually.

This NDE is not my story, but June’s words struck me powerfully as I reflect on where my thoughts have been this past week and I do not believe in coincidences.

I will let you read the whole record; it is powerful. Recorded here are the quotes that hit me so powerfully. I gratefully acknowledge © 1998-2019 NDERF, Jody Long & Jeffrey Long, MD. All Rights Reserved. for all their work and dedication.

This event happened, to June, in 2006. This is the same year that my world crumbled on all sides and in every way, accept for my health. In 2018 the bit of what was left of the world, I had thought I was in, crumbled. Out of the ashes great things come. 🙂

*This next sentence was what I grabbed ahold of me first. I am just fine with being on my own, but I sense the isolation more now than I ever have. I have no desire to mingle with the so called “living” in their delusions, I am very happy alone, because I know it is not real. At the same time I know that I am here to do something significant, whether others agree, or understand, or not.

June said, “I understand my strength and my willingness to always do what I feel in my heart to be correct no matter the compromise or sorrow it may cause me, even if it leaves me isolated.”

She went on and I relate to this so much:

“I am consumed with the feeling of love and that it is something I am destined to do but the relief of being here is so enticing. I become aware of the sense that I will return again sooner than I realize and the compromise I make now will be worth the sacrifice of this unexplainable moment. I have a knowing that going back is a determination I made for myself long before now. I feel profound sadness as I consciously decide to go back to my miserable life.”

*The “unexplainable moment” she speaks of may be this life that seems so long to us at times.

June continues:

“I feel a loving send-off and the sense that these presences are giving me a sort of inspiration that I can accomplish what I am supposed to alone. I feel that I can do it. A knowing that I chose to do this already and that I didn’t finish. The presences’ give me a strong feeling of validation and that I will remember that even if I am alone, they will be waiting for me when I complete the mission. They fill me with love and encouragement as I consciously agree that it won’t take too long and I’ll be back. I accept that I must return to the ambulance not because I want to but because I am obligated to for some purpose.”

*Remember, in reality we cannot be alone, any more than we can be separate from God. It is only in this world created to allow Christ to manifest how he messed up, does separation seem possible. I do include the spirit world with this statement as well, for even in spirit while connected to this world we think there is some form of separation from the Father of Christ. And yes, I know the love the NDE’s speak of, but I believe there is something even greater that Christ will wake up to and we will all be with him, because we are of him, to be embraced by Eternal Father.

*The time element of the spirit world is spoken of here, as is the concept of time in this physical plane.

*What struck me with force was that this witness speaks of something that I believe is true and that is that this world is required to run a certain course. Yes, there is free will, most of which was given when we agreed to come here. And there is some variance that we have here, but we also agreed to angel companions to keep us on track in case we try to drift too far to our agreed role.

*If you agreed to a troubled life, angels will help you stay on track, likewise for a more simple life, etc.. Just as she got to be with someone she had loved for many years, but it did not work out. That was not what she had agreed to, though she would be with him for a time. (You have to read her story to get this part fully maybe.) We cannot blame others for what we are living. We agreed to it beforehand and it definitely has a purpose.

*Then I went back in review and read this, which was just above that first sentence that grabbed me. This was powerful.

“I feel a sense that it is a choice I am free to make. I allow myself to drift in the vortex with a sense of pushing the boundary to the event horizon. I become aware of the knowledge that I am a warrior, of sorts, a Being meant to make others uncomfortable and assist in a needed change but a feeling of needing the answer. I don’t know what I am supposed to do or how.

*A warrior, of sorts! A Being meant to make others uncomfortable! Do you ever feel like that? I know I do.

*Two parts here are really important. 1. “I allow myself to drift in the vortex”, this being, where we are in the world, in a place separated from that place of eternity and true being. Drifting suggesting what we have started to understand, which is none of us really know what we are doing here.

*2. “a sense of pushing the boundary to the event horizon.” In other words, our personal discontent with the way things are in world has an influence that is 3. creating something that will be occurring. It reminds me of labor pains as the child is preparing to be born.  To assist in the needed change.

*Do you feel isolated? Like you are being polarized with everything and you find greater comfort in being alone than you do in the company of others? You are not alone in this feeling. It is being talked about in many circles that I see online.

*Can I be so bold as to suggest that this is exactly what we signed up for and that if we just chill and let it roll. Do not get caught up in the emotions of guilt or what else can I do. Give out good vibes where you can and just breath and let things be otherwise. If it means you are isolated, that’s okay, do not think that this is an unacceptable thing. Remember what June said:

“I understand my strength and my willingness to always do what I feel in my heart to be correct no matter the compromise or sorrow it may cause me, even if it leaves me isolated.”

Till next time, God bless, Namaste~

Reflections on an emma-interview-1889 pdf

I spent 30 plus years as a Mormon. from 27 years of age to around 57 years of age. I have not attended or considered myself a Mormon for about four years now. That influence is huge on me though, and I like to research things if they come to my awareness. While looking up something else on Google this Emma Smith showed up. I studied diligently throughout those years and history was a huge part of that study. Nauvoo was a place I felt extreme peace in. Not with the living so much, but with those who had passed through there so many years ago.

http://www.mormonthink.com/files/emma-interview-1879.pdf

by her son, Joseph Smith, the third.

You can read her comments about polygamy and spiritual wifery in the upper part of column three on page one.

First column, page one, near the bottom you will see the inference made that this could be looked at as her last testimony on the issues discussed. I did not read this during my 30+ years in the church, though I did read extensive works in the church and Lucy Mack Smith’s (mother of the prophet Joseph Smith, Jr.) autobiography that I purchased at the RLDS (at that time, so it was called) Visitor Center in Nauvoo.

If all that polygamy stuff occurred, I believe that, it happened under the radar of Emma Smith.

It was not something acceptable to Emma’s sense of right and wrong and it was not something she allowed in her consciousness.

I believe the condition of her staying in the church would have been to become one of Brigham Young’s wives. This was not meant to be, they had never gotten along, perhaps because of his willingness to accept the concept of polygamy. They parted ways.

When one gets beyond the emotional need to just believe that others are telling you the truth, you have the option of listening to your own voice and the dictates of your own conscience.

Real, but not. Life is to be taken for its metaphoric implications. Anyone who believes that this is truly life is crackers, as far as I am concerned. Myself included.

In this world of illusion we have many experiences and so much information to pick from, to decide what we believe is best.

We must seek to know ourselves. That is our truest gage. That is a voice we must honor.

I personally still believe The Book of Mormon. In other words, I believe the events occurred and were recorded as best as those who witnessed them could with the purpose and intent of those recordings being to lead people of the future to a witness of God.

The stories in that book taught me to seek to recognize and listen to that voice within me who walks with knowledge of all time, past and future, and is in the presence of The Father of Christ.

However, I also believe, the way they were recorded was according to the perceptions and biases of those who recorded them. This does not mean they should be removed as credible. It does mean that they, like all other stimuli, needs to be taken with a grain of salt, as they say, and we want to maintain the willingness to have the Holy Spirit teach you of the truthfulness of things.

The only complete truth is that God IS and all around us testify of Christ, his Son, born to bring joy to the heart of God, which he absolutely does because what God wills, occurs.

We appear stuck in a place of trauma and struggle because of the creator of the illusion we live in, who is the Son. He needed a place to bear witness of his sin and deserving of punishment. Knowing these things are not based in truth, we came to experience and to redeem, just as Jesus did.

We are easily overwhelmed and distracted by the fear that over-whelms us. False evidence appearing real. Yet, we still remember, on a deep sub-conscious level that all is well.

All experiences that I have seen of our ancestors suggest that we ought to let go of the trauma of yesterday or it will plague and disrupt the joy of today. This will mean different things to different people.

This is a journey we each volunteered for. It is also a journey that none of us can fail at. All things testify of Christ. Not the religion, but the Son of God, brought into being to bring His Father Joy.

I have truly enjoyed the journey. What an incredible ride!

Till next time, God bless, Namaste~

Day 8 URTEXT ACIM pgs. 15 – 17 Beginning Relationships

*I apologize for the length of this entry. There was overlap in the corrections and instructions of Jesus and I did not want to separate it. Approx. 4500 words. I think I stretched my post to the maximum and it scrunched up some spots, but I do believe you will find it readable. I hope this serves you.
20. Miracles are an industrial necessity.
*Bearing mind that what is being spoken of here is within the illusion. Yet I suspect, that Jesus is referring to something that is perhaps a bit more real.

Industry depends on cooperation, and cooperation depends on miracles. (see page 8)

*Cooperation. Being a loner myself, I stand and literally live by the works of thousands of others. Cooperation alludes me. I rarely understood the instructions or desires of others and I often had a different vision of how to achieve the results they had in mind. I could obtain a goal, but the route I would take could perplex someone till after the fact.

*Of course, collective cooperation into truth would need the miracle of a united mind of the Whole Consciousness of humanity. I suspect the multitude of miracles would have an extending effect as shown in the next few words.

Miracles are cobwebs of iron.

*This did not get into the future editions of ACIM. I will not be noting everything that did not get into future editions. I just happened to look this up in the 1985 edition and it was not there, unless I missed it. Point is, that Jesus and Helen where two strong personalities learning to synchronize their understanding of symbols and language.

*Helen was sort of embarrassed by the first part of the book, but to me, it makes it all the more plausible or possible.

*Looking at this statement I took it to suggest the web of connection that we have as a whole in the consciousness of the Son. Jesus will discuss it further.

They unite human frailty to the strength of God. (see page 7)

*They would need to refer to the cobwebs, since iron would not be a plural. I love this statement, “They unite human frailty to the strength of God. That analogy resonates very beautifully with me and the way that I envision miracles connecting and strengthening humanity, fragile piece, by fragile piece. (The see page 7 and 8 -above, are not something we have privy to but obviously mark a portion of the manuscript or its shorthand notes.)

(add for 21. HS considered changing “iron” to “steel”. Correction: No. Steel would not be a better word. Steel is very useful but it would have to be tempered by fire. Iron is the raw material. The point of miracles is that they replace fire, thus making it unnecessary.)

*Here is a lovely example of clarification and cooperation between Jesus and Helen, his scribe. He brings in point #22 and after clarifying that, he goes on to reflect back on the imagery of #21 as they have it so far.

22. Miracles are natural expressions of total forgiveness.

*Bear in mind total forgiveness is not something that humanity takes to naturally. So that is not what he is saying. Clearly it is that miracles are natural expressions of total forgiveness.
Through miracles, man accepts God’s forgiveness by extending it to others.

*This seems to answer two question(s). #1 How does man receive God’s forgiveness and #2 What is the usefulness of forgiveness to humanity. Again, we are still sorting out words and understandings. Further into the course we understand that God has no need to forgive, because no error truly took place. For the moment though, Jesus is speaking to Helen where she is and has a means to understand, even if it will need to be tweaked later.

The second step is inherent in the first, because light cannot tolerate darkness.

*The second step would be “the extension to others”. And this part, my friends, leads me to wonder if true forgiveness has been extended or received as yet. Because it would bring the light that would end the need of time. Here we would recognize that forgiveness or acceptance of light will not be forced on anyone, so there is a place in the united consciousness where, at least the appearance of two realities seem to exist, light and dark.

*The miracle and awakening, as I understand it, is realizing there really is only light and sharing that, which could be looked at as God’s forgiveness (at least temporarily), will remove all darkness eventually.
Light dispels darkness automatically, by definition.

*Hence the seeming duality, as long as darkness exists.

pg. 16
EXPLANATION INSTRUCTIONS:

*I suspect it could have been meant as EXPLANATION/INSTRUCTIONS

Miracles are associated with fear only because of the fallacy that darkness can hide.

*This is that false duality noted. Darkness, too, is often what is referred to as sin.
Man believes that what he cannot see does not exist, and his physical eyes cannot see in the dark.

*Sounds like a child who covers his eyes and declares, “You can’t find me.”`
This is a very primitive solution, and has led to a denial of the spiritual eye, which always depends on light.

*Whoa, the spiritual eye gives us reference to that which is felt rather than seen with the human eye. This would give us insight, as well, to the “form of light” that Jesus is referring to. This reminds me of when Jesus “He who has eyes, let him see.”

Remember the Biblical injunction: “May I never forget that THINE eye is ever upon me, beholding the evil and the good.”

*Again, Jesus is speaking to her from a duality, which he discounts later in the course, and immediately in the Workbook.

There are two stages, one lower and one higher, which are involved in the escape from darkness: 1) the recognition that darkness CANNOT hide. This usually does entail fear.

*The lower stage recognizes that darkness cannot hide. The first step to over-coming darkness.

2) The recognition that there is nothing you WANT to hide, even if you could. This brings escape from fear.

*The higher stage or second understanding is … there is nothing you want to hide, even if you could. Both stages require a cognitive understanding.
Corrections re pt. 21 cobwebs of iron “This is upside down as stated. The part about ‘uniting human frailty with the strength of God’ is all right, but the explanation stops too soon.

*Here Jesus is reviewing that previous analogy.

If iron is the ‘raw material’, cobwebs can’t become the iron.

*I did not visualize cobwebs becoming iron, rather cobwebs made of iron. This may also be a good example of channel-er and channel-ee having a discussion with oneself.

That is only the way it seems, because cobwebs are associated with the frailty & iron with strength.

*Do you get a sense of the ease and comfortableness that Helen has with Jesus? Miracle expose the “raw material” that make us up and reveals our connectedness which the cobwebs suggest. Yet the metaphorical understanding of cobwebs being frail is large with Helen at this time.

If you look carefully at the phrasing, you will see it is reversed (one point already tells you that miracles reverse the physical or lower order laws.)

*And reveals that strength is the place we come from.

The raw material, iron, is heavy but crude, & stands for the body, which is a crude creation.

*This begins to put a whole new spin on the metaphor, with iron having an unsatisfactory standing.

The cobweb concept is closer to how the body should be regarded, i.e., as an airy & temporary home, which can just be blown away with a slight breeze.

*This same metaphor can express the temporariness of the body.

21. The point should read “A miracle reawakens the awareness that the spirit, and not the body, is the altar of Truth.

*Here, the entire wording is changed and it can be found as #20 in the 1985 edition. This shows the effort that was necessary for Helen and Jesus to take to learn to speak to one another and it could reflect on why listening is so important when we speak to others, so that we get the correct meaning.

*It could also be used as a guide to the study of any written word in the reflection of various meanings and leaving the mind open to the influence of the Holy Spirit to confirm its meaning or application for you at any given time.

This is the recognition that leads to the healing power of the miracle.”

*This being the awareness that the spirit, not the body, is the altar of Truth. Understanding a new paradigm, i. e. “the recognition that leads to”, gives us the miracle from where we stand now, even though it truly only reveals what always actually has been.

22a. A miracle rearranges the order of perception, and places the levels in their true perspective.

*Wow, chills. Bottom line there is only God, and nothing is separate from Him. We have forgotten this and have created a menagerie of levels or understandings that do nothing but confuse us and frustrate us to the point where we do not even look at what we are doing to ourselves or where we truly are.

This heals at all levels, because all sickness comes from confusing the levels.

*Clear enough. Ultimately we find there is only one level and that is in God.

(Tell B. about the idea (which is still to dim to HS) that the reason is not that you (plural) distantiate, doubt, or cannot believe. It is more of a reaction formation against a pull which you both recognize is so intense that you are afraid that you will be uprooted.

*These dear people, Helen and Bill, where very practical and professional. They knew the knowledge and norms of the day and had maneuvered them very well, as shown by their prestigious positions in the college. What a challenge they faced, as they were given the psychological tools that would take them, from an insane process of making confusing nonsense out of a non-sensical world to the clarity that defined the divinity of all humanity and all of creation! I suspect that the word uprooted could be exchanged with driven completely mad. And for doctors of psychology, this was not a light matter.

But remember that a cobweb is really stronger than the iron, if you see it properly.

*The cobweb being the truth that there is no division among humanity and no separation of humanity from God or Source or whatever you want to call the creator of all that IS.

This fear is also why you couldn’t get the point straight.)

*I can respect this. I suspect that most of us will need to cross that line if you will.
By the way, it is not true that you are both just scribes.

*Key word in this sentence is JUST.

You might remember that the Scribes were very wise and holy man and are even sometimes spelled with a capital S.

*Scribes. Jesus knows his scriptures and holy writ.

If you want to go further, you might change the meaning of ‘just’ from ‘merely’ to ‘honest’, a term used in the Bible in association with ‘might’ or ‘strength.’

*Look at that definition! Honest to be looked at as with might or strength. Love it!

Tell B. you couldn’t make that pun if the original phrasing had been singular.

*The flow of the concepts that Helen received were given to her in her own thoughts but derived from another source, Jesus. Pun again is signifying the ability to joke around with Jesus. Both Helen and Bill were scribes as she recorded the info in a modified Gregg Shorthand, which she read to Bill, who typed it as she transcribed her notes. In truth, you and I depend on them being “honest” scribes, with both integrity and strength and courage to bring forth this work for us.

(HS aside about liking / ???assumption failure more.)

*She is teasing Jesus, showing us a bit of her personality. What she had assumed was in error, had been her thoughts and she liked it more. Teehee. That they were “just” scribes and not as important to the work as Jesus was.

Answer: It was cuter, but this one MEANS more.

*Can you feel the affection and familiarity in his answer. It was cuter, (able to give one a chuckle), but this one MEANS more. Jesus is so willing to work with us where we are, yet he will not neglect his objective of giving us every tool we are willing to receive to meet our objectives.

The REAL reason you don’t like it is because it refers to you in a very lofty position. 

*Busted! He is acknowledging her embarrassment at being a part of this at all.

This makes you nervous.)

*Sweet. How Jesus knows us and empathizes!

-pg. 17-
Correction: And don’t lose sight of the emphasis on cooperation, or the NOT SINGULAR.
*The fact that Helen and Bill were to work on this together was, I believe, very important to recognize. Jesus needed both of them to work together to bring this about. Curiously, that is the very thing that brought them to this assignment; lack of cooperation.
That point about “industrial necessity” should read “corporate”, referring to the body of Christ which is a way of referring to the Church.
*I suspect that this is referring to “20. Miracles are an industrial necessity. Industry depends on cooperation, and cooperation depends on miracles.”
*Jesus defines it as the church or body of Christ. I think a more realistic way to refer to it would be to acknowledge the Christ Consciousness or the united psyche of humanity. The other words suggest a religious organization to current accepted meanings, and the Course itself states it is not a religious organization. Rather, it suggests all of humanity are a part of this being. That being without dogma or labels.
It is literally the workings of the united psyche of humanity.
*Another example of the communication process and journey that Jesus and she and Bill are on.
But the Church of God is only the sum of the souls he created, which IS the corporate body of Christ.
*This is the total of persons that Christ sent out of himself. It incorporates all of humanity and again, does not mean a religious society.
*Corporate suggesting that we are one group.

Correct to read: “A Miracle makes souls one in God, and leave in the next part about cooperation.”
*This challenge that Jesus is having in communicating exactly what he wants to convey reminds me of NDE’s and their witness of the telepathic way we communicate where there is no confusion and ideas are shared, complete and whole, without needing to use words, which are just symbols and can create confusion between two parties.
Further Correction: “God” should read “ Christ”.
*Like in scripture study it is confusing for God is acknowledged as Christ, as likewise, you and I are included with the same pronoun, even though that makes many uncomfortable or outright angry, it does signify the truth that only God IS.
*For the purposes of linear time and humanities general understanding at the moment, it is interesting to note that Christ is to be used in this statement. “A Miracle makes souls one in God,”, A Miracle makes souls one in Christ.
*After allowing the identity of the individual to be recognized, this is the next solidarity humanity needs to recognize. That united we are THE CHRIST. Jesus is stating here that the Miracle brings that to the awareness of the individuals that make up Christ.
The Father and the Son are not identical, but you CAN say “Like Father, LIKE Son.”
*Not identical, but “Like Father, LIKE Son.” This, by reason, extends to each of us as part of The Son. Just as an oak seed grows into an oak tree. We are a part of the original.
(Remind B. to get another notebk. I don’t give up as easily as HE does. If I cld. get YOU to listen, which was a miracle in itself, I can get him to register. He should appreciate this more than anyone else, having had some trouble with this problem himself.)
*A personal note for Bill. Note Jesus patience and maybe witness of Bill’s impatience. Do you hear the respect and familiarity with which Jesus speaks to Helen? “If I cld. get YOU to listen, which was a miracle in itself, I can get him to register.”
*Register definition: register with. register something with someone or something. to record the existence of something with someone or something. This is what Bill’s assignment was, to record the existence of something or bear witness.
 “Lord heal me” is the only legitimate prayer.
*Note that this is not the only legitimate communication with the Divine, because Jesus had told us to wake up and say “Help me to perform whatever miracles you want of me today.” See Page 13 of URTEXT. Could it not be another way of saying the same thing?
This also means “Lord atone for me,” because the only thing man should pray for is forgiveness. He HAS everything else.
*Humanity has everything. “Lord atone for me,” this does not mean Jesus, it means Christ. Now I may be saying something contrary to other teachings here, but this is what I understand. This is the verbiage that got Jesus in trouble with the religious leaders of his day. It is simply a matter of the confusion of the pronouns. For we are, in fact, individuals within a single identity. Christ.
*Note here that forgiveness is the only thing needed. And forgiveness for what, our great sins of existence? NO. Forgiveness for forgetting or believing we have separated from God. We have everything because we are (of) God’s own being.
Now take this personally, and listen to Divine logic: If, when you have been forgiven, you have everything else, and If you have been forgiven Then you have everything else.
*I suspect that the personal relationship and oneness that Jesus feels with the Whole of Christ, makes it nearly impossible for him to speak of Him as separate.
*Also, his note of “take this personally” shows Jesus’ ability to read the hearts of humanity. Their witness to themselves, which would be received by the Holy Spirit, who is the deliverer of all true communication, was vital to them receiving the Course, and having it witnessed.
This happens to be the simplest of all propositions.

*Proposition is a statement or assertion that expresses a judgment or opinion. He would give her scientific/analytical mind, an equation.

IF P then Q
P Therefore, Q
The real question is, is P true.

*I am going to be so bold as to give the meaning to P and maybe Q as well.
*P = God, omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent.
*Q = We are of, in essence, are God. With the same will, attributes, and powers.
*The real question is, is God and HIS omnipotence, omniscience, omnipresence true.

If you will review the evidence, I think you will find this inescapable.

*Can this be disputed? God is or is not. And if HE IS, then we are OF HIM.

I went on very personal record to this effect, and I am the only completely True Witness for God.

*I would love to have Jesus tell us more about this. His connection to the closest entity or energy that is source or God was as close as any had ever had in all time. This may also have been a bit of what Helen saw as bravado in Jesus. His life was certainly given entirely to the expression that God, he was and God, he is. In fact, he hung upon the cross for this expression and the jealousy that it aroused in those of his day.

*This is also what humans, in their current state of understanding have such limited ability to “get”. It is the Miracle and the Forgiveness that allow the human psyche to receive it.

*What gets forgotten, in my opinion, by those who currently teach ACIM is that until all have this witness within them we will still be playing out the roles that Christ gave us of personal suffering and scarcity. These personas that we contracted to do, will not be released until all have received the Miracle and acknowledge the Forgiveness.

*This is what we could teach the next generation and those that are here about the world they live in. So instead of focusing on goals of achievement, focus would be on extending awareness of Forgiveness.

You have very right to examine MY credentials—in fact, I urge you to do so.

*Jesus respects her reservations.

You haven’t read the Bible in years.

*He also knows her and what she knows of him. He shows acceptance of this, yet they are able to work together. This may have been important to their particular work given their individual personalities and eccentricities individually. By “they” I mean Jesus, Helen, and Bill.

Special Explanatory Note: As soon as you (H & B) have entered the second phase, you will be not only willing to enter into communion, but will also understand peace and joy.

*Did they come into this level while in the flesh for more than moments at a time? Is it something that they are still learning about on the other side? Will the second phase be when we all accept the reality of what we are?

Your commitment is not yet total.

*Commitment to the course, commitment to Jesus, commitment to working together on this? Each of these were strong components on this work that would take seven years to complete.
That is why you still have more to learn than to teach.

*There is a learning curve to all new, and even newly remembered, information.

When your equilibrium stabilizes, you can teach AS MUCH as you learn.

*Ah, I can relate to this. It is why when I found ACIM I had to take a two year sabbatical from teaching online. As you incorporate an insight it becomes second nature, like riding a bike or driving a car. It then becomes automatic and a part of you. You also move within that sphere of behavior or understanding as if it were a part of you, you have confidence.

This will give you the proper sense of balance.

*i. e. it will become more comfortable.

Meanwhile, remember that NO EFFORT IS WASTED.

*Love this. NO EFFORT IS WASTED.

Unless you remember this, you cannot avail yourself of MY efforts, which are limitless.

*WHOA, and here is a wonderful description of our potential relationship with Jesus.
We have the ability to utilize the efforts that Jesus has been making on our behalf throughout his existence. Let me tell you that I believe beyond a doubt that he has given the most on our behalf. I believe this because I believe that he was the first of the thoughts of Christ. He was the first of the thoughts of The Son. He is the first of the 144,000. He had the closest relationship/connection/communication with the Head of the Matrix, Christ. So as we make an EFFORT, Jesus meets us because we are then “on the same page”.

(Have a good day.)

*Jesus had a personal and amiable relationship with Helen and Bill. Maybe it was like we do in customer service today. “This has been grumpy, but you have a good day okay?” Maybe a bit of both?

Since only eternity is real, why not use the illusion of time constructively?

*This place we call time is not real, it holds the trauma The Son thinks it is possible to place on himself. Jesus knows this and asks us to step up in faith. Faith is believing what cannot be seen. In faith we may make the effort to meet Jesus half way in pulling ourselves out of this. The Holy Spirit will guide us, as we will allow him to.

You might remember that “underneath are the Everlasting Arms.”

*Deuteronomy 33:27 (from looking on Google the quote)
King James Bible. The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms: and he shall thrust out the enemy from before thee; and shall say, Destroy them. Christian Standard Bible. The God of old is your dwelling place, and underneath are the everlasting arms.

*Jesus is reminding her of her Jewish heritage and perhaps an oft referred to scripture. Another way of asking her to trust him.
BIBLICAL QUOTATION: “ If you are ashamed of me before men, I will ashamed of you before God.”

*I suspect that this is a further plea to get her to cooperate with him. It does not appear she was just a blind accomplice in ACIM.

*King James Version Luke 9:26 – For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and [in his] Father’s, and of the holy angels. Matthew 10:32-33 – Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.

(HS ? of misquote.) is interpreted as a threat ONLY as long you remain in the first step. (see bottom of p. 6 for steps.)

*If Helen was able to recognize a possible misquote, she must have been at least familiar with the New Testament. At any rate, this was not going to work with Helen.
What it REALLY means is that if you are ashamed of me (or embarrassed by love), you will project and therefore make it impossible for me to reach you.

*Jesus share the true meaning or intent. If we are embarrassed by love, we will project and separate ourselves from him or at least seem to.

*Online dictionary: VERB (*I took the closest meaning. Look at the synonyms.) estimate or forecast (something) on the basis of present trends. “spending was projected at $72 million” synonyms: forecast · predict · estimate · calculate · gauge · reckon · expect

*My example of the kind of projection that stops Jesus from being able to help us. = “There is no hope for the world.” Or “No one will care anyway.”

*I would add assume to the synonyms. And we know what that makes, haha, an ass out of u and me. Hehe. I am sure you get the point.

Make every effort you can NOT to do this.

*Obviously if we project a negative outcome or even an unrealistic positive one where we deny the suffering all around us, we stunt our growth.

I will help you as much as you will let me.

*This I have seen in so many places throughout my life. The divine can only give us what we are willing to receive. Help will not be forced on us. If you do not allow your mind to be open to receiving complete answers, you will not get them. You will only get what you are willing to receive. Let that sink in, please.

Till next time, God Bless, Namaste~
