Reflection for 22-29 June 2020 The Only Cure For Humanity’s PTSD Is the Atonement.

Please invite the Holy Spirit for translation. Thank you.

Did you know that everyone has PTSD, post-traumatic stress disorder?

Yep, you too.

There are things that happen when we have PTSD.

We over-react. We are extreme in any variety of ways.

We act out of proportion to the circumstance that we are faced with.

How we act will be different for each individual.

We might clam up and go within, shrinking to a ball of mush.

We might not do very well in social gatherings, even when there is no perceived threat by others in attendance.

We might strike out hard, fierce, and very likely, not at the true source of our irritation.

We might binge on our favorite “chemical of choice” which can embrace any kind of addiction from chocolate to sex; even, literally beating your head against a wall.

Maybe you do it with cigarettes, cutting, beating up your spouse or kid, or kicking your dog.

And do not forget how much fun mind games can be. (Please, see the sarcasm!)

“Might as well start those kids and spouses off right. After all, who knows what the world is really like better than we do? We are doing them a favor! Giving them practice dealing with the “crap” we all know this world is made up of. Besides, we must be right if they are too dumb, to see our BS, right? And love? Ha, that’s for sissy’s.”

How about over-eating?

Binge TV, gaming, or gambling in any of its many forms?

Overdoing good deeds, shopping, or being a workaholic?

“Surely these things “hide a multitude of sins”!”

“And no one would deal with it with racial slurs!” (I hope you caught the sarcasm there!)

You might feel very sorry afterward, and not know how to stop it, in any one of these scenarios.

There is only one thing that will cure the issue.

The one thing that will give us a non-attacking defense.

The one thing that will not just send us into a “better” addictive response, which is understanding why we have PTSD and addressing it.

Do you want to know what it is?

The universal “illness” and disparity, which is the Original Error of Separation.

The first entity to be sent out from the Father and Christ as a consciousness, Jesus set up the disruption of unity and was delivered by the Father immediately through the witness of the ATONEMENT.

He has been, from that moment forward, trying to get just one other human being to understand this so that the Restoration could truly begin.

It would not be something that he could “force” on anyone for everyone is privileged to the same amount of “authority” that he does.

Even though, the “propaganda” about him has said otherwise. And he did not deny this in all his dealings with those in the flesh and even used the misinformation to his advantage to lift them to a better view of themselves.

The problem is, no one will leave this paradigm until they believe in the Creator enough to know that a world of suffering, is not what the Creator could ever have meant for His Son.

His Son is cherished because He IS, as God IS, He has nothing to prove.

As long as the Sonship believes these false ideas that put bandages on the wound, while it appears it is others that suffer and not myself, we are trapped.

The idea that “the challenge is worth it”, that you cannot have light without darkness or that they have a vengeful God who seeks to punish and toy with His beloved creation(s) separates us.

Jesus will not get through to us. We will not “see” the reason to accept his escape route.

Seek compassion and true forgiveness. This can only come with a sincere belief in a Master Creator of all that is one entity made of many individuals whose whole is greater than the self.

Once humanity understands who they truly are, or at least have faith in the possibility of what they are, nothing will be outside their reach of attainment.

Humanity will need to be willing to set down ALL perceptions that promote the idea of separation or levels.

With the way the world is at the moment, it is difficult to imagine I do not believe that Jesus wants to see this go on any longer.

I believe that even Jesus has had his fill of suffering.

I also have reason to believe that someone has finally understood his message.

How about you? Could you accept a world without struggle and strife?

Would you be content knowing that everyone has a source of natural energy?

Could you put up with health and enjoyment of life?

Or are you unwilling to give up your addiction to the challenges that life offers?

How about vengeance?

How many lives have to be “on the rack” to satisfy your idea of judgment on the Son of God?

These are questions each of us needs to ask ourselves.

I am not saying there will not be a transition time or that abuse in the form of addiction, brutality (or any form of bullying), or the self-inflicted depression does not need to be addressed.

I am saying that it must be done with compassion and recognition of the confusion brought on by the Original Error of Separation. This would bring a desire to rehabilitate and educate the confused individual(s).

Trust me, mathematically, we will be able to have plenty of diversity and opportunity as we explore the meaning of creation and do not need the suffering of others or self as a “fixated sports addiction”.

Our history (or rather His Story), should be used to heal; not to beat ourselves and each other with.

It was fabricated on the illusion of separation from both God and each other.

We each must “recreate” our past and bring it to resolution in the present, individually and collectively. The Atonement does this. It allows us to see the past from a different perspective.

We are obviously in that phase of existence, as we have seen in the first half of 2020.

It will take a change of perspective that yields to the Atonement that Jesus has been inviting us to partake in.

We will not be content fabricating our own little space without taking into account all other lives as well.

PTSD will only be addressed as we partake in the Atonement, one at a time. Once it starts, it cannot but spread like wildfire and with it, all the blessings that God has been waiting to share.

The only real question is: ARE YOU READY and Willing? All the Holy Spirit needs is the willingness to hope in the possibility that humanity can work together to bless one another.

All while giving thanks and praise to the Creator.

Summary

We want to recognize that we all are in various states of PTSD, because of the Original Error of the belief in Separation from God and one another.

Forgiveness for the Original Error and compassionate restructuring of ourselves and society, with no levels; where one has more “authority” than another. “Authority” is the ability to be the author of your personal reality, thus it is an individual thing that we are all equal in, before the Creator.

Our past should not condemn us but be used to heal the world by exposing it to the light of the Atonement and taking responsibility for ourselves in the present.

Partaking in the Atonement, and recognizing the Whole Christ which UNITED we Are, is the only way to rid humanity of the consequences of the Original Error, which manifests PTSD in all its forms.

We can do this! God did not create His Son to fail!

Reflection for 15-21 June 2020 Believe It or Not, We Are Healing

Please invite the Holy Spirit for translation. Thank you.

Using Mama’s Christmas Carol, You Got the Power, Mom! By Debra (Debi) Yvonne Simmons

Illness of mind and body afflict us when we close our minds to our own being or that of another. It happens in families and societies all the time.

I know this is the same thought I put up for last week, but in the manner that I choose my Reflections, this is what came up. I ask for divine assistance. And I trust their judgment, more than my own .

The infirmities of society are not “out there somewhere”, they are within us by way of not understanding the workings of the human psyche.

It is so easy to find someone else to blame for where we are. I know, I do it too.

What makes a difference for me, I believe, is that at the core of my soul I know that whatever is going on out there is reflective of the inner unrest of Christ, which I see as all of us together.

I ask myself how I can believe that I can say something to humanity that is any different from what others have been trying to say for years.

The bottom line is, I know that if nothing else, my willingness to forgive with all that I am, has an impact.

Compassion needs to be our offering to each other, while forgiving what is just confusion, even at the heart of those who purposely are determined to destroy us as individuals or as a whole.

You will be inspired how you can best serve.

And there is no measure of the good you do in the United Consciousness when you forgive the Error of Separation and its results.

Forget not that no one will be forced to accept healing.

When you give, you receive. Bashing or lifting, be gentle with yourself.

Do not be afraid of the attitudes that the world is spouting at the moment. These come from fear.

Speak calmly and hold in your heart the witness that we are One Child before God.

Your knowledge of others is to be based on testifying of God’s awareness of and Love for them.

I find it difficult at times to remember this.

I want to correct someone’s point of view, and why?

They have their reasons for being there.

Would it not be wiser to simply extend love and affection in their direction?

Maybe that is what it means when we are told “If you cannot say something nice, do not say anything at all.” That statement always seemed to irk me, but in light of only wanting to bring awareness of their worth, I can see how this makes sense.

I find, for myself, that I only really change any thought patterns, when I let the Holy Spirit help me cut out the harmful stuff.

Summary

Acknowledgment of self and others is key to growing in light and healing within this sphere of development.

Compassion for self and others will help us as we move forward, even when faced with those who are confused about their place in the divine.

Giving is receiving. Be mindful of how you are interfacing with the world. I do not believe that means that we allow situations that harm ourselves or others to continue, once we are aware of them. If confrontation or distancing is required, consider doing so with compassion.

Awareness of God, yourself and others as a creation of it/she/him, put you in awareness of your source of protection and your claim to power.

The world is healing, believe it or not. You and I are a part of that. It is a reason to be glad.

Till next time, God bless, bye for now.

Reflection for 8-14 June 2020 I Choose To See Only Christ

Please invite the Holy Spirit for translation. Thank you.

Using Mama’s Christmas Carol, You Got the Power, Mom! By Debra (Debi) Yvonne Simmons

Illnesses of mind and body afflict us when we close our eyes to our own “being” or to that of another. It happens in families and societies all the time. Then apathy and real loss of memory and even bodily function can occur. Be careful, however, not to point fingers and lay blame at the feet of another, because someone is ill or in other ways distressed.

If we are to move out of the state of suffering that humanity experiences on a regular basis, we want to stand in the witness of the Atonement, and know that our receiving it will allow the rest of Christ to recall it as well.

Do what you can to ease each other’s burdens, but remember that the life we live comes from our expectations and beliefs about our personal worthiness.

Stand as a Child of God and acknowledge all others, all that is, as part of the Sonship, as well.

Remember always the Original Error; the belief that the Son could be Separate from the Father. And do so, with gratitude and humility.

This allows us to walk in the world in a state of forgiveness. Not seeking to cause offenses and not easily offended.

You might even find yourself less inclined to want to mingle.

Especially, once you realize the rules of acceptance according to “society”.

What the world offers is manipulation. Presumed and insincere “safety” if one recognizes the “enemy” as identified by the leader.

Now, these things are not always obvious. And the enemy can be anyone or anything. What matters is the “sense of power” that is achieved by the leader as we do their bidding.

Do not put a label or face on whom the “leader” may be. They are often very quiet and subdued appearing, and they take great “inner or even , as they suppose, hidden satisfaction” at their ability to manipulate others.

And make no mistake, they feel themselves superior to those less intelligent or more gullible, etc., who follow their lead.

Jesus was the first thought of Christ at the beginning of Creation. As such, he laid out the Universal Plan for us all.

This was done through the power of the Holy Spirit, which is God’s Voice here in this sphere.

You and I have access to the Holy Spirit, as well, if we honor His instructions we will be blessed.

His voice is soft and different for everyone. For me, it is a feeling. When He confirms something of a spiritual nature I get goosebumps.

He will warn us, direct us, show us our shadows and cut them out with a scalpel that does not leave a scar.

I have felt this as prejudices and addictions have been removed over a lifetime.

Jesus is our elder brother and because he established things here he is in the best position to help us escape the error and the trauma it causes.

He wants to help. He stands nearby as a friend who never gives up on us. You may have heard him as “your conscience” back in the day.

Many of us have shut that voice down and declare “we know better”. He cannot force us. That is against an eternal law. Guidance has to be welcomed. And guided we will be. By Jesus, or by other voices who manipulate us without intent beyond witnessing their own power, or seeing just how far you will follow them.

Jesus is sincere in his desire to lift humanity out of the cage of entrapment and into a place where they will be willing to embrace the Father’s love and all that He has.

It is fun to note that, while we have different gifts that are able to be used by each of us now, the Father has no “favorites”.

Each component of the Sonship will receive all that the Father has and be allowed to use them in their own way. By that time, we will understand that anything that harms in any way is not of God and not of ourselves, as we are like Him in every way. Even as we utilize all our gifts in very distinct and different ways.

As we walk in remembrance of our position as Children of God, others will be reminded that they are as well.

It is not necessary to preach or teach these things. Each of us knows this intrinsically; inside ourselves.

Here is where Jesus takes over the miracle of unification that he tried to teach Helen and Bill about in A Course In Miracles.

He knows where the false beliefs are, and he will clear them out and unite the Sonship into the remembrance of the Whole that they are.

Summary

Human trauma and hardship comes from the belief in Separation. Its diversity has no limit and everyone experiences it.

See the original error, the belief in Separation from God, in all things, and you will be able to walk in a state of forgiveness continually. This can be a great comfort, and relief. Hate is a heavy and cruel task-master.

Jesus knows the in’s and out’s and wants to help us out. You do not have to be a “Christian”, you just want to let him be your friend. I have not had a better or more faithful one.

As we remember who we are, others cannot help but remember who they are as well. They may kick through a lot of ideas, like how self-righteous you think you are, but inside the Holy Spirit is healing them. This is something that we need to understand faithfully, because it is not often evident to our eyes and ears.

God believes in humanity. He would not have created His Son (which united with Jesus and each other we are) otherwise.

I choose to believe that only God IS, and that all else is error.

You will need to decide for yourself.

Till next time, God bless, bye for now.

68 Urtext of ACIM pg 47 Jesus Has Given Us The Answer

Please invite the Holy Spirit for interpretation, thank you. Text in bold. Comments *.

Peace is an attribute in YOU. You cannot find it outside.

*We need to teach this to our children. And to the parents of our children, because it is truth.

All mental illness is some form of EXTERNAL searching.

*Yes, I still find myself in this place at times. It is a condition of living in this world of the body. And remember, Jesus did say that we are not to “sacrifice” when he was speaking of Edgar Cacey.

*I do believe that we can be in these bodies while mentally ill and still stand in the Atonement, as we stand in that INNER peace that Jesus speaks of.

Mental health is INNER peace.

*I do not think that we should fault ourselves as we feel sorrow or even fear for the things of the world. It is relying on that INNER peace that knows that we are taken care of that sets us apart and makes us a light to the world.

It enables you to remain unshaken by lack of love from without, and capable, through your own miracles of correcting the external conditions, which proceed from lack of love in others.

*That peace is a strength of character or in our character, anyway.

*This part “through your own miracles of correcting the external conditions,” I have to admit is not something that I look at the same way other readers of this work do. I come from a family of origin where words were used for attack and I knew it. I chose to forgive and to love but the words (and other things) took their toll. I had almost convinced myself it was excusable, but the Lord brought people into my life that made me face the facts about what I knew. I have always had to count on the Lord to get me through life. I count on him to make the miracles, so I do not resonate with this phrase well. 

*Teachers of the course say that they ask for another way to see something and I get that to a point, but the Holy Spirit had to help me see what He did over such a long period, that I cannot turn away from the witness I have from Him. I will have to wait till I am ready to understand it differently, or He teaches me it. I can only stand in the testimony I have at the moment. 

*Does that mean I have no business teaching it? I do not think so. I think we each have a responsibility to share with the world what we understand. And all we have is the moment.

When you are afraid of ANYTHING, you are acknowledging its power to hurt you.

*What would the world look like if we did not believe that others had the power to hurt us?!?

*Even when we know that they can hurt us temporarily (emotionally or any other way) we can know that in truth we are taken care of.

*It makes me think of people who stay with spouses who are abusive. This may be more of a reflection of how you think about yourself than how the other person is.

Remember that where your heart is, there is your treasure also.

This means that you believe in what you VALUE.

If you are AFRAID, you are VALUING WRONG.

*So, as I get my message out there, I want to “keep my eye on the prize” of bringing to the human consciousness a different look at the Jesus that I know and keep believing in God’s belief in humanity.

*What are you afraid of? What stops you from living a life of integrity?

Human understanding will inevitably value wrong, and by endowing all human thoughts with
equal power, will inevitably DESTROY peace.

*Endowing is an action word. It is a choice we make. A decision.

*Jesus is saying that we need to look at our thoughts and decide which do we value. Which do we want to manifest here in the illusion?

This is why the Bible speaks of “The peace of God which PASSETH (human) understanding.”

THIS peace is totally incapable of being shaken by human errors of any kind. It
denies the ability of anything which is not of God to effect you in any way.

*That is a powerful statement. But I cannot help but think that it gets taken out of context.

*It could be seen as saying that if you have any discomfort you are not in alignment and I do not think that is what he is saying.

*We want to remember that we are not our emotions or our situations. Things may affect us, but they will not effect us.

*”Affect and effect are easy to mix up. Here’s the short version of how to use affect vs. effect. Affect is usually a verb, and it means to impact or change. Effect is usually a noun, an effect is the result of a change.”

*We do not change from being in God, of God, and complete in God, because situations we find ourselves in affect us or bring about emotions that we would rather not have. IE, anger, sorrow, fear.

*Do you see what I mean? We are not our words, emotions, actions, we are divine entities, complete, whole, and secure. And safe.

*That last one is so hard to hang on to. And yet, it is true. We are not our bodies. In this space it is a concept that can be difficult to understand.

This is the PROPER use of denial. It is not used to HIDE anything, but it IS used to
correct error.

Knowing what we are not is important in this equation. Sorrow and frustration do not equal lack of peace when one knows their emotions are not who they are.

It brings ALL error into the light, and since error and darkness are the same,
it abolishes error automatically.

*Grasp this and hold it close to your heart.

True denial is a very powerful protective device.

*It can help us stay afloat inside the insanity that is the world of illusion that we have created.

You can and should deny any belief that error can hurt you.

*Any and all. When we step into “isms” we have taken fears and made them real and able to harm us. This is why the healing of the world is an “inside job”.

This kind of denial is NOT a concealment device, but a correction device.

*Such clarity Jesus brings! Such compassion is expressed in his delivery!

*It is my understanding, at this time, that Jesus does not walk in fear and maybe never has because these concepts he is sharing here are a part of who he is.

*He did not succumb to the temptation of fear as we have. His witness and memory of being in the beloved protective presence of the Father of Christ is still remembered by him.

*This is why he has been thought of as “greater than” you and I, but he just has different gifts, as you and I do. When time is done all will have all that the Father is and we will each use them in our own unique ways and continue to create eternally.

The “Right Mind” of the mentally healthy DEPENDS on it.

*OK, so Jesus is saying that mental health is possible here in the illusion, IF we remember who we are and what is real.

*Who we are is God’s Child. What is not real are all the things that we believe can harm us. They become real, only in our believing.

*Now that does not give you carte blanche (complete freedom to act as one wishes or thinks best) to put yourself in harms way according to the beliefs of the world that we are currently participating in.

*It means that you “respect” the beliefs that have created the world of illusion and suffering that we have and use “common sense” to stay safe in all ways. (Emotionally, physically, financially, etc.) While knowing the truth, of the illusion, that has been created by the error of separation.

You can do ANYTHING I ask.

*This is Jesus talking to Helen and Bill. And you and I.

I have asked you to perform miracles, and have made it VERY clear that these are NATURAL, CORRECTIVE, HEALING, and UNIVERSAL.

*This is the answer to the unrest caused by covid19 and the George Floyd tragedy. We can accept a world filled with fear and blindness. In fact, greater fear because of the blindness. We do not know who will turn on us or when, or where the unseen virus will attack and destroy our bodies or those of our loved ones.

There is nothing good they cannot do.

*The Miracle that Jesus teaches us about here can overcome all of this and give us a sense of balance, clarity, and purpose.

But they cannot be performed in the spirit of doubt.

*This is huge, but do not think again, that you must be perfect in the sense of never being frustrated or scared. That does not a doubter make.

*A “doubter” is established when you accept the untruth that you are separate from God or that anyone else is.

Remember my own question, before you ask yours “Oh ye of little faith, wherefore
didst thou DOUBT.” (Reference to Christ and the apostles walking on water.)

*We can walk in joy and hope in life even while the war of “isms” rage and the covid19 lurks as the invisible attacker on our physiology.

*We can embrace the moment and give thanks for ourselves, for one another, and even for these things that force us to look at what is real and what is really important to us at this present time.

*We got this! I have no doubt!

Till next time, God bless, Namaste~

Reflection for 1-7 June 2020 Know Who and Whose You Are

Please invite the Holy Spirit for translation. Thank you.

Using Mama’s Christmas Carol, You Got the Power, Mom! By Debra (Debi) Yvonne Simmons

We help others know themselves better by being true to who we are.

Knowing who we are as a part of the Whole of Creation is important to the Awakening of Christ.

Acknowledging our divinity allows us to see the divinity in others.

It also allows us to see the masks and costumes that we wear that reflect the Son’s belief that He is worthy of punishment.

It is in seeing the negative and knowing that it is the fear of the Son of God being manifest because he thinks himself worthy of punishment, that makes our hearts capable of having compassion and forgiveness of the “other”, even in the most dire of circumstances.

That does not mean that harsh things go unaddressed.

On the contrary, it means they are acknowledged and safe boundaries are established for all.

One must stand in awareness of the original error while within time and space.

Remembering the truthfulness of the confusion that the Son of God experienced at Creation allows us to have forgiveness for all and to stand in the Atonement, regardless of what is going on in our immediate world or the world at large.

Then, be aware of the still small voice that testifies of Wholeness, Completeness, Protection, Comfort, Warning, Perfection, Innocence.

This is the Holy Spirit and will guide you, just as He guides Jesus into the awareness of God’s Love for His Son.

Of which, you are a part.

Acknowledging the Atonement is our primary responsibility, because our light ignites the awareness of others. Even if that is not evident immediately.

Be aware that it may also push you away from others.

It may be done by mocking or attacking you, this to show you that they are not deserving of the love which is a part of the Atonement.

We want to pray for those who offensively use us, even while we uphold safe and reasonable boundaries on ourselves.

This may be in many forms; financial, emotional, physical, and any other way that you feel prompted to protect yourself.

Be aware of addiction. It takes many forms and has no place in the Atonement.

At the same time do not beat yourself up if you have an addiction. It may be what allows you to stay here and lift humanity through your awareness of the Atonement.

It may be addiction to good things as well, as what we call bad things.

The addiction may harm others, but it always harms ourselves.

Often addictions are used to drown out voices from childhood that put us down or that cause us to not feel “good enough”.

Or, in severe cases, to shut out the voice of the conscience, which is Jesus trying to guide us. This will happen in those with criminal intent.

Remember that these things are only part of the illusion.

And you do not are not your emotions, behaviors, body, age, gender, choices, those are all part of the identity of the role you came to play.

You are the Son of God manifesting the two choices that He has.

One; to believe in the idea that suffering and pain is something He is worthy of because He left God. Two; to believe in the reality that only God IS, and only what is of Him, can truly be.

And that the closest witness to what God may be is that which manifests in love, kindness, and wholeness (completeness). These are what you, and all creation, truly are.

Summary

Know Christ, see Christ, the Son, in all things and situations.

Remember the Original Error, which is the belief in Separation from God.

Our primary responsibility is to stand in the witness of the Atonement, our Oneness with God, and all that is.

Be aware of Addiction in yourself and others. This will allow you to make better decisions for healthy boundaries.

We are all in this together, and we will lift the Consciousness of Christ to the remembrance of His Father’s Love.

Till next time, God bless, Namaste~

67 Urtext of ACIM pg 47 Our Challenge Lies In Acknowledging the Sorrows of the Illusion While Having Knowledge of the Truth

Please invite the Holy Spirit for interpretation, thank you. Text in bold. Comments *.

*This is from a lengthy discussion between Helen, Bill, and Jesus about possession.

Further, insights into mental illness can be misused, and lead to preoccupation with one’s own symptoms.

*Mental illness. In reality, we are all mentally ill, because we believe we are separated from God.

*Humanity is not ready to be told that it is just sick.

This is why this area is less constructive for most people than a course primarily devoted to mental health.

*This is why the Course material that Jesus gives us, is devoted to right-mindedness, rather than how off we are.

*I find it curious that I am inspired to share my interpretation in just the opposite fashion. It is because of how the material has been taught. As if humanity could just turn on the “Light of Love” and all would be well.

*The error must be recognized and forgiven first. If love comes before compassion for the suffering of the world, it is only a mask and camouflage for self-hate.

However, some professions will find (some?) principles of mental illness constructive, especially those which are concerned with mental illness in others.

*I suspect that Jesus may have been referring to “life coaching” and things like this that are so prevalent today. Helen was not aware of these at that time. And here he states in the next statement her profession as a psychologist.

*Considering that our thoughts make up our reality there may really be no field that is outside this eventually, anyway.

This obviously includes psychologists.

The obvious correction for ALL types of the possession-fallacy is to redefine possession correctly. In the sense of “taking over,” the concept does not exist at all in divine reality, which is the only level of reality where real existence is a meaningful term.

*This is really a good thing to know! “In the sense of “taking over,” the concept does not exist at all in divine reality,” This means that we are always in charge of what happens.

No one CAN be “taken over” unless he wills to be. However, if he places his mind under tyranny, rather than authority, he intrudes the submission/dominance onto free will himself.

*Because we come to earth as infants, we believe that we have not chosen or subjected ourselves to the course we are on in life.

*This is a basic error. The infant does choose as an “adult” consciousness how they will come here.

*Sadly, the assumption that we did not choose our place in life, allows us to believe that others are to blame for where we are. This is true as an individual, and as a society, or race.

This produces the obvious contradiction inherent in any formulation that associates free will with imprisonment.

Even in very mild forms, this kind of association is risky, and may spread quite unexpectedly, particularly under external stress.

This is because it can be internally controlled ONLY if EXTERNAL conditions are peaceful.

*Here is the key. ONLY if EXTERNAL conditions are peaceful, will the mind that has allowed tyranny to seem a possibility.

This is not safe, because external conditions are produced by the thoughts of many, not all of whom are pure in heart as yet.

*Hear this well and understand how one must live in alignment with the Atonement, and witness personal authority, acknowledging that you chose to come to this place of illusion to bear witness that it is false and that tyranny is a false concept.

Why should you be at THEIR mercy? This issue is VERY closely related to the whole possession issue.

*Jesus is speaking of the definition of FREEDOM.

You insist on thinking that people CAN possess you, if you believe that their thoughts (or the external environment) can affect you, regardless of WHAT they think.

*”Affect you”– am I allowing this to to affect me as I feel compassion and sorrow for the harm humanity insists on throwing at itself?

*”Psychology: Affect, in psychology, refers to the underlying experience of feeling, emotion or mood.”

*I can see why the concept would be to not manifest in form (tone of voice or actions) or countenance (our face) from this statement. But I suggest just the opposite is true.

*Note that the psychological definition describes affect as “underlying” suggesting that whatever is happening outside is rocking you internally. I believe that we can have stability inside in knowing our truth in the Atonement, and still allow the “consequences” of the behaviors of others to be portrayed in our physical lives.

You are perfectly unaffected by ALL expressions of lack of love.

*Yes, on an internal and eternal plane. Not necessarily within the illusion itself, which your body is a definite part of.

These can be either from yourself and others, or from yourself to others, or from others to

you.

*Again, this is an eternal truth that one may carry within themselves, regardless of what outside appearances may be. (IMO)

(I’m glad you passed that test. It was crucial. This is ref. to HS reluctance to take dictations as given.)

*These stages of communication, especially concerning the writing she was doing for Jesus, was important to the work being performed. As well as, Jesus and Helen being able to work together.

*This makes me think of life in general. Jesus wants to work with us, this is so we can help him shorten the time humanity stays in a state of suffering. This is what time was allowed to manifest.

*How easy it would be to look at the world and crumble. I am 63 and have had enough experiences to know that while the world like the smile on my face, if I show it in public, someone will be impressed to knock it off my face. Compassion is needed in the world at this time.

*I hope that we are at the point of being able to see what we are doing to ourselves.

*Yet, we will cry for what we have done to ourselves and each other.

*Compassion will be required.

*And then gratitude for the relief and the healing.

Till next time, God bless, Namaste~

Reflection: 25 May-1 June 2020 Recognize the Wounds and Become the Healing

Please invite the Holy Spirit for translation. Thank you.

Using Mama’s Christmas Carol, You Got the Power, Mom! By Debra (Debi) Yvonne Simmons

The first thought this week is of Abundance. That means this is how we truly receive Abundance for ourselves and others:

1. Compassion must be used in all things. However, remember that actual assistance cannot be forced on others, nor will it be forced on us. Even though, eventually, we all will receive it.

Jesus teaches in Urtext ACIM that “Responding to ANY form of miscreation with anything EXCEPT a DESIRE TO HEAL (or a miracle) is an expression of this confusion.” Urtext ACIM pg 73

Anything that is not of love is miscreation. To desire to heal is the only way to respond.

Definition for compassion:

sympathetic pity and concern for the sufferings or misfortunes of others.”the victims should be treated with compassion”synonyms:pity · sympathy · feeling · fellow feeling · empathy · understanding · care · concern · solicitude · solicitousness · sensitivity · tender-heartedness · soft-heartedness · warm-heartedness · warmth · love · brotherly love · tenderness · gentleness · mercy ·

We want to have compassion for other’s, and our own, suffering and desire to help. This is done even as we feel this, once we have accepted the Atonement for ourselves.

Sadly, this does not mean that we can “fix” everything. But opening the door to the desire to heal everything, gives Jesus the “go-ahead” to do it “all”, eventually. Or in a matter of time that he knows to be best.

(The following three points are Action.)

2. Just as bashing another cannot be done without putting yourself down, likewise, lifting others in word and deed, and most importantly in our hearts, lifts us as well.

Lack of compassion comes back like a boomerang.

Compassion is never unrewarded. It opens the doors for angels to assist, where they were not able to before.

3. The Original Error, was when Christ thought it possible to Separate from God and earn His disapproval.

A a mother, I know that the Separation could not have occurred and, I know that Jesus will wait, however long he needs to, for us to join him in the Atonement.

Jesus, as the first thought of Christ, made up the blueprints of this world with both, the manifestation of that thought, and its undoing.

4. You are of Christ, who was given “all that the Father has”. Only you can deny yourself of this. Be aware that according to the agreement we made before coming into the physical, we may not see these blessings immediately.

Because we are One, none will be delivered completely, until all accept the Atonement.

It is our responsibility to do this NOW, in as far as possible which, at the very least, would be in faith.

Before we all accept the Atonement, be aware that all are capable of making mistakes.

“Innocence is wisdom, because it is unaware of evil, which does not exist. It is, however, PERFECTLY aware of EVERYTHING, that is true.”

“God Himself is not symbolic; He is FACT. The Atonement, too, is totally without
symbolism. It is perfectly clear, because it exists in light. Only man’s attempts to shroud
it in darkness have made it inaccessible to the unwilling, and ambiguous to the partly
willing.” Urtext ACIM pg. 75

Jesus is able and willing to help us.

“Time is under MY direction, but Timelessness belongs to God alone. In time, we exist for and with each other. In Timelessness, we coexist with God.” pg. 74 Urtext ACIM

Jesus wants to be intimately involved in your life, so he can alter things for your benefit, but you must give him permission.

Summary

Have compassion and the desire to heal foremost in your thoughts in all your comings and goings.

Do unto others what you want done to you, because this is the law of the universe.

The idea that Separation from God could occur is what has brought about all the confusion that humanity is in. Pointing fingers, will not help, it only keeps us in the vicious cycle.

Do not misunderstand this. It does not mean to not call out error.

It means to not blame other’s or something as a means to distract you from your own work of accepting the Atonement.

In God there is no such thing as lack. Make your desire known to Jesus and then, get out of the way and it will be brought to you.

We can do this. Let’s do it sooner, than later!

Till next time, God bless, Namaste~

66 Urtext of ACIM pg 46, The Miracles Undo the Error, We Accept the Miracle

Please invite the Holy Spirit for interpretation, thank you. Text in bold. Comments *.

*This is from a lengthy discussion between Helen, Bill, and Jesus about possession.

The pseudo-corrective mechanism of three is apt to be more varied because of the
more inclusive nature of the error, which has already been mentioned.

*Here is 3. Another type of distortion is seen in the fear of or desire for “spirit” possession.

*It not only was off, but it cast a false identity over the Holy Spirit and His work, which we need in our day to day walk.

Some of the possibilities are listed below:

a. One aspect of the possession/possessed conflict can be raised to predominance. If
this is attempted in connection with possessing, it leads to the paranoid solution. The
underlying component of “being possessed” is retained in the “persecution” fantasies,
which are generally concomitants.

*concomitants are a phenomenon that naturally accompanies or follows something.

*Once we believe in something being out there that can “get us” we do not give it up and envision all sorts of conspiracies and situations that become very real, especially as we repeat them over and over to each other and to ourselves.

b. If “being possessed” is brought to ascendance, a state of some sort of possession
by external forces results, but NOT with a major emphasis on attacking others. Attack BY
others becomes the more obvious component. In the more virulent forms, there is a
sense of being possessed by demons, and unless there is vacillation with a), a catatonic
solution is more
likely than a paranoid one.

*These are the very real observations that Bill and Helen would have been familiar with in their careers.

*It is sad, to reflect how well the political scene reflects these issues, as we watch how the parties continue to attack each other, not to mention the voter apathy that takes place.

*The apathy represents the catatonic solution that Jesus is speaking of here.

*This year (2020) is an election year and it is really hard to say how things will come down when it is all said and done.

The FOCUSED paranoid has become more rigid in his solution, and centers on
ONE source of projection to escape from vacillation.

*To escape from going back and forth between thinking they are the problem (possessed) or that “others” are, they pick an image or situation and defend it (sometimes without any reasoning).

*I feel like I did this in the churches. J.C. represented an image that I would defend, without really making a lot of sense.

*Hymns (music) helped me feel an emotional connection to the situation and dulled my common sense and reasoning abilities. That and the ingrained attitude that someone else knew more than I did.

(Aside: It should be noted that this type of paranoia is an upside-down form of religion, because of its obvious attempt to unify into oneness.)

*There you are.

Both 1, 2, and 4 and more likely to produce neurotic rather than psychotic states,
though this is by no means guaranteed.

*Being under the influence of an “outside, unseen entity” would carry more fear, but as he states, any of it can be over-done.

However, 3 is inherently more vulnerable to the psychotic correction, again because of the more fundamental level confusion which is involved.

*Yes, placing the spirit, or divine part of existence (which is of God) under suspicion.

It should be noted, however, that the greater fear which is induced by 3 can ITSELF
reach psychotic proportions, thus forcing the individual closer and closer to a psychotic
solution.

*Psychotic had an interesting set of definitions:

ADJECTIVE relating to, denoting, or suffering from a psychosis.”a psychotic disturbance”synonyms:severely mentally ill · insane · mad · certifiable · deranged · demented · of unsound mind · out of one’s mind · not in one’s right mind · not together · crazed · lunatic · unbalanced · unhinged · unstable · disturbed · distracted · stark mad · maniac · maniacal · manic · frenzied · raving · distraught · frantic · hysterical · delirious · mad as a hatter · mad as a March hare · non compos mentis · sectionable · crazy · mental · off one’s head · out of one’s head · off one’s nut · nuts · nutty · nutty as a fruitcake · off one’s rocker · not (quite) right in the head · round the bend · raving mad · bats · batty · bonkers · cuckoo · loopy · loony · bananas · loco · screwy · with a screw loose · touched · gaga · up the pole · not all there · not right upstairs · away with the fairies · foaming at the mouth · barmy · crackers · barking · barking mad · round the twist · off one’s trolley · daft · as daft as a brush · not the full shilling · buggy · off the wall · nutsy · nutso · out of one’s tree · meshuga · squirrelly · wacko · bushed · porangi · psychopathic · psychopathological · sociopathic

*In other words, they go overboard and are unable to cope in regular living.

*Apparently, we give a lot of different names to this “condition”.

It is emphasized here that these differences have no effect at all on the miracle, which can heal any of them with equal ease.

*Did you hear that?

*These differences have no effect at all on the miracle, which can heal any of them with equal ease.

This is because of the miracle’s inherent avoidance of within-error distinctions.

*One size fits all. Our level of dysfunction, as we categorize things has no bearing; an error is an error.

Its SOLE concern is to distinguish between truth, on the one hand, and ALL kinds of error, on the other.

*This is, not only an incredible blessing, but it deserves to be recognized as something that equalizes each, and every, one of us.

This is why some miracles SEEM to be of greater magnitude than others.

*We all need to partake in this healing. Even Jesus, himself.

But remember the first point in this course, i.e., that there is no order of difficulty in miracles.

*”NO order of difficulty”, all challenges are able to be resolved with the same solution.

*This reminds me of the time in the New Testament when Jesus asked “Who would be more grateful, one who is forgiven much or forgiven little?”.

*Seeing how the miracle works for either, it may be that those who “feel” they have not fallen short, who will take longer to accept the miracle.

The emphasis on mental illness which is marked in these notes reflects the
“UNDOING” aspect of the miracle.

*”Undoing: is the effects of the error is intrinsic in the miracle.

The “DOING” aspect is, of course, much more important.

*The “DOING” might be stated as the allowing or releasing of the miracle itself, which each of us must do, to release ourselves and each other.

But a true miracle cannot occur on a false basis. Sometimes the undoing must
precede it.

*I suggest that humanity will stay in a state of turmoil, while the undoing is being accepted by one and all.

*The undoing, of course, is the Atonement and rejecting, while forgiving the error of Separation.

At other times, both can occur simultaneously, but you are not up to this at the
moment.

*Jesus is speaking to Bill and Helen in this statement, but I believe it is also reflecting on what life will be, once we have a large of people acknowledging the Atonement.

I hope you will join me in doing what we can to understand and live in the Atonement.

Universal Reading 18-24 May 2020 Do We Have the Courage To Give It To God?

Please invite the Holy Spirit for translation. Thank you.

Using Mama’s Christmas Carol, You Got the Power, Mom! By Debra (Debi) Yvonne Simmons

1. We want to see others as children who are confused and keep a prayer in our hearts for one another.

When we live in the world we view others by what they do for us or how they can serve us.

When we see others through the Atonement we seek to lift others in our hearts and minds. Bear in mind, that while there are ways that we can help others as we are inspired, not all people need or want help.

Their challenges may be part of a network that Jesus and them have established to give someone in their circle the witness that suffering is not what God created His Son for. Maybe that someone is you.

Even so, do not think that it is your place to “fix it”.

PTSD, post-traumatic stress disorder, comes with being human. It does not leave, but it can be understood. Be gentle with yourself and others. Do not be afraid to do things that bring you comfort.

Seek help. Inside yourself and outside yourself. You will be inspired. Nature does a lot to heal and comfort the human soul.

Set up healthy boundaries. You do not have to be a bashing board to be a good person. You have value, and even if forgiveness were your only purpose it would be huge, in the scheme of things.

His Story

Your life and the experiences therein are His Story. They belong to Jesus. They are fabrications devised to imagine how life would be if one was separated from God.

And they hurt, sometimes. Sometimes they are okay. And sometimes they are awesome!

But they are not ours, no matter how real they seem.

This is what, one who walks in the Atonement, understands.

Does that mean that they do not hurt or get depressed, or bruised?

Nah, it just means that they know it is not real, and they forgive; and then do their best to keep a safe, emotional distance.

Does that mean that we cannot celebrate the joys that life brings?

Not at all! Embrace them, and embrace the moment.

Breathe, know that God IS, and that nothing else is real. 

And that nothing real, can be harmed.

Give thanks and show appreciation for others. This helps to turn up the volume on the guidance from the Holy Spirit.

Giving thanks means keeping on with the work of living. It means having a prayer in your heart for all humanity to be able to receive the truth.

Summary

Remember that we are all lost and hurting children.

PTSD does not go away, it just hides behind different screens, ready to pop out when we are least expecting it.

But do not let this discourage you. This is not your true story. This is a fabrication devised by Jesus to bring each of us eventually to the Atonement.

Give thanks in all things. This is easier when we know and forgive the original error of Separation.

It may sound as if my “hypothesis” is rather depressing.

I would ask you, “Would you rather have a world where suffering really occurred and not feel the pain till eternity?” 

Or would you have a witness of the true error of humanity in thinking that it can suffer at all, with the option of placing it all in the hands of Jesus, and the Holy Spirit, to carry the challenge and transmute all the error into Love?

These, I believe, are our two options.

And I have every reason “to know” that humanity will eventually choose the exchange.

65 Urtext of ACIM pg 45 Feeling Unworthy or Not Good Enough Effects the “Upper-Class” as Well.

Please invite the Holy Spirit for interpretation, thank you. Text in bold. Comments *.

*This is from a lengthy discussion between Helen, Bill, and Jesus about possession.

*Jesus is noting some untrue beliefs about possession.

  1. *That the body can be possessed or is a possession.
  2. *That property can be possessed, used to protect the self in the idea of body possession.
  3. *A form or witchcraft that confuses the sacred spirit with something that be conniving, as in possession by a spirit.

4.Knowledge can also be misinterpreted as a means of possession.

Here, the content is not physical, and the underlying fallacy is more likely to be the confusion of mind and brain.

The attempt to unite nonphysical content with physical attributes is illustrated by
statements like “the thirst for knowledge.”

(No Helen, this is NOT what the “thirst” in the Bible means. The term was used only because of man’s limited comprehension, and is probably better dropped.)

*I love the intimacy of their conversation!

*And look at what Jesus said here. Note the second statement, which acknowledges that he reaches out to us where we are. He does elaborate on it a bit later.

The fallacious use of knowledge can result in several errors, including:
a. The idea that knowledge will make the individual more attractive to others. This is
a possession-fallacy.

*Fallacious means false; based on a mistaken belief.

*Makes me wonder about the idea of making oneself attractive for the sake of others. Not that we do not want to be well-groomed for ourselves, in general.

b. The idea that knowledge will make the individual invulnerable. This is the reaction formation against the underlying fear of vulnerability.

*Can you relate? I can say that I sense this in life.

*And we do tend to look at those with education as if they are gods, do we not?

*Remember how we used to look at doctors? Maybe some of us still see them as gods, when it is you and I that have steward ship over these temples we are using, that we call bodies.

* I have sought knowledge all of my life, for understanding though, I cannot say I remember thinking it would make me invulnerable.

*Though, maybe I thought it would make me safer. And I do believe that knowledge can do that.

c. The idea that knowledge will make the individual worthy. This is largely pathetic.

*Wow, and he is talking to two college professors! Strong language here.

*(And you thought Jesus was a wuss!)

Both you and B. should consider type 4) very carefully. Like all these fallacies, it contains a denial mechanism, which swings into operation as the fear increases, thus cancelling out the error temporarily, but seriously impairing efficiency.

*Is it any wonder that Helen did not want these published in her lifetime?

*Jesus is really calling her out. Do you suppose he does this to each of us? I do.

*Helen told Judy, when she was dying that she had the feeling that she had to die, so that the work of ACIM could move forward. I personally believe it was a choice she made.

*Her ego would not allow this information to be brought out. And she and Ken had put up enough barriers that Bill really was not involved, as he should have been according to what Jesus said, and the way the Course had been printed it took away Jesus’s role in the plan for humanity, nearly entirely.

*This is what I experienced, even as the Holy Spirit led me to this work; and while I was a sincere follower of Jesus’s teachings. In other words, I had a relationship with him, but the edited version of the Course did not address who he really is to us.

*Not that I begrudge the walk I had. I firmly believe that this particular work needed to come to the awareness of those who would allow the Spirit as He directed them to it.


Thus, you claim you can’t read, and B. claims that he can’t speak. Note that depression is a real risk here, for a Child of God should never REDUCE his efficiency in ANY way.
The depression comes from a peculiar pseudo-solution which reads:


A Child of God is efficient.
I am not efficient.
Therefore, I am not a Child of God.

This leads to neurotic resignation, and this is a state which merely INCREASES the
depression.

*Knowledge does not teach humanity his divinity. The Holy Spirit does.

*It is the Holy Spirit that bears witness of Christ and Christ is you, me, and Jesus.

*How many ways does humanity think that it is not good enough? Not worthy.

The corresponding denial mechanism for 1) is the sense of PHYSICAL inability, or IMPOTENCE.

*And then we add the “body-shaming” that we do to ourselves and each other. 😥

*Here, Jesus is speaking of “mental-shaming”, because the truth is that the “educated persons” know that they have limited knowledge, even while others place them on a pedestal.

*This is where Jesus is showing them that this mentality leads to depression.

The denial mechanism for 2) is often bankruptcy. Collectors of things often
drive themselves well beyond their financial means, in an attempt to force discontinuance.

*He seems to be saying that the professional and educated individuals sometimes feel they must “strut their stuff” or “keep up with the Jone’s” and go too far. Makes sense.

*The need to have possessions is one of those addictions that never gets satiated. There is always something more to want.

If this idea of cessation cannot be tolerated, a strange compromise involving BOTH
insatiable possessiveness and insatiable throwing-away (bankruptcy) may result.

*Insatiable means never satisfied. Do you see the vicious cycle we send ourselves on?

An example is the inveterate or compulsive gambler, particularly the horse-racing addict.

Here, the conflicted drive is displaced both from people AND things, and is invested in animals.

The implied DEROGATION of people is the cause of the underlying EXTREME
superstition of the horse racing addict.

*Note that it is really a “hating of self” that is being manifested in different ways.

*Do not think that just because you do not use the word “hate” when you think of yourself that it is not there. As Jesus is pointing out here, it shows up in our actions. And it is a natural result of the original error of belief that we have separated from God.

The alcoholic is in a similar position, except that his hostility is more inward than outward directed.

*Okay, so the hate can go outward, toward others, or inward, toward the self.

Defenses aimed at protecting (or retaining) error are particularly hard to undo, because they introduce second-order misperceptions which obscure the underlying errors still further.

*No wonder it is so difficult to communicate with others!

*The “second-order misperceptions” come from not acknowledging the first error of separation.

*This is a powerful discussion, between Helen and Jesus. I am not certain that Bill is in on this one while it is being given, even though he is mentioned. It seems to be Helen that is getting some profound truths in her own academic language, for the purpose of allowing her to see Jesus’s credibility, and to arouse her desire to assist; as well as, to learn more about him and his message, as well.

*Jesus will take as long as it needs to help us engage in the work. And, trust me, it is something that we will all be engaged in, sooner or later.

*Let’s make it sooner and shorten the amount suffering humanity insists on putting itself through, shall we!?!

Universal Reading 11-17 May 2020 Your Place In the Atonement Lifts Everyone

Please invite the Holy Spirit for translation. Thank you.

Using Mama’s Christmas Carol, You Got the Power, Mom! By Debra (Debi) Yvonne Simmons

1. We are each a part of the Atonement.

Our unique gifts and talents are useful and important to the world, as simple or as grandiose as they may be.

But, these in themselves, are not our greatest contribution.

Knowing that the Atonement is real and for now, is.

2. You can use the things that you are learning to give different perspectives on old issues.

There are universal challenges to life.

Things that we all go through; and your life and perspective, are an important component to the whole.

You are valuable, even by just “being”, because we are one, yet, your input is unique.

3. If you feel a desire for love in the world and have a compassionate heart, that desires forgiveness for all, then you are ready to accept the Atonement right now.

Being able to consider the idea that “the Son of God at His creation”, could have had a mistaken thought that He had separated and thus, offended God is all the Holy Spirit needs.

He will bear witness to you of the unity of all creation, and of the innocence of Christ, which is all of creation; including yourself.

This is the Atonement that Jesus wants us to receive.

It will also give you the ability to forgive, even before offense has occurred.

From there the Holy Spirit will teach us according to our language and experiences.

And angels will protect us through our chosen course in this life.

4. We do well to be concerned for other people in the world, as well as for the earth herself.

It is very easy to get caught in a belief that we are singular beings and that we have no responsibility to others.

We can serve them best by walking in the light of the Atonement.

The Children of God are entitled to perfect comfort, which comes from a sense of
perfect trust.

As we walk in the Atonement we recognize and experience this.

We cannot change everything in the blink of an eye, however, when all have accepted the Atonement, it will seem as if that is exactly what happened.

Summary

You are a unique and important part of the Atonement.

Day to day life will take on a different meaning as you walk in the Atonement.

Journaling is a great way to observe these changes.

Things that have made you “different” in the world will lead you to the Atonement.

Share what you learn in creative ways to help your fellowman.

We all can participate in the Atonement and lift the world to greater heights.

Till next time, God bless, Namaste~

62 Urtext of ACIM pg 44 and 45 You ARE Able to Hear the Voice of God

Please invite the Holy Spirit for interpretation, thank you. Text in bold. Comments *.

3.Another type of distortion is seen in the fear of or desire for “spirit” possession.

The term “spirit” is profoundly debased in this context, but it DOES entail a recognition that the body is not enough, and investing it with magic will not work.

Jesus acknowledges that “spirit” is a significant something, but that this reference of “spirit” possession is demeaning to what it truly is.

Jesus notes that the request shows an understanding that the body itself is not who we are and that the “tricks” i.e. magic that we do with our thinking will not make it so.

Spirit is “unseen” by human eyes typically and does not have a solid form. Though it is possible that it has weight because the difference between a dying body and the body of one after the spirit has a measurable difference.

I, personally, am not so quick to accept that this “spirit” being that we have after the mortal dies is our true self either. Because what manifest-able (such as the weight that shifts after death) is not real, but only part of this dream or delusional place we have for a time.

It is not something that disturbs my testimony in the present. I know that my true essence has “being” with that which is real.

This recognition ACCEPTS the fact that neither 1) nor 2) is sufficient, but, precisely BECAUSE it does not limit fear so narrowly, it is more likely to produce greater fear in its own right.

This reminds me of the “spookiness” we sense about things that we cannot see or understand with our physical senses.

It may be the secondary off-shoot of not believing we are in God.

Endowing the Spirit with human possessiveness is a more INCLUSIVE error than 1) or 2), and a step somewhat further away from the “Right Mind.”

Yes, a secondary step, as I stated.

The Spirit, written in this form. With a capital as in a proper noun, would be the Holy Spirit.

As Jesus says, to suggest that the Holy Spirit has human possessiveness is silly in the extreme.

What would God need to be possessive about when He has all that there is?

Well, that is what we are doing to ourselves as well.

But then again, we are the Children and God IS God, the Father.

Projection is also more likely to occur, with vacillations between grandiosity and fear.

Projections is finding the fault of our circumstance, to be outside of our own imaginings.

Now, do not misunderstand this. In the illusion the attacks will come, because we have believed it is possible to be out of the presence of God.

Jesus is saying that we vacillate between thinking ourselves beyond God’s reach to being afraid of His imagined wrath.

“Religion” in a distorted sense, is also more likely to occur in this kind of error, because the idea of a “spirit” is introduced, though fallaciously, while it is excluded from 1) and 2).

The “spirit” that religion speaks of is not real, in that, it is not an essence of the body or possessions. Therefore it tends to keep God in His place and humanity, and the rest of creation, in another place.

God IS, that is all that there is. So there is no place that He is not present, except in the delusional thoughts of the Son.

Witchcraft is thus particularly apt to be associated with 3), because of the much greater investment in magic.

Number three was “spirit” possession, which uses the imagination of both the sender and the receiver to produce the magic.

It should be noted that 1) involves only the body, and 2) involves an attempt to
associate things with human attributes.

Jesus said that two was seeking to transfer the desire to possess a person to the ability to possess things.

The human attribute given here is because of the false belief that the body can be possessed in the first place.

He is basically saying that neither the body, nor items can be possessed.

The point is you simply are and you have all that you need or desire within your ability to beacon it, once you accept that you are, indeed, the Son of God.

Three, on the other hand, is a more serious level confusion, because it endows the Spirit with EVIL attributes.

Here we are talking about the Holy Spirit, and this is our direct connection to the Father.

This means that we are giving God, evil attributes or characteristics.

This accounts both for the religious zeal of its proponents, and the aversion (or fear) of its opponents.

We have basically created a “monster” out of our creator and, truly, out of ourselves.

Both attitudes stem from the same false belief.


This is NOT what the Bible means by “possessed of the Holy Spirit.”

Possessed of the Holy Spirit, is to be attuned to or open to the inspiration and instruction of the still small voice that is within each of us.

This voice is our connection to Father, He is able to see all that we are, as well as who everyone else is.

He is different from Jesus. Even Jesus listens to the Holy Spirit. It was an important teaching at the time he was on the earth, in that form.

It still is today, as shown by our Urtext ACIM.

It is interesting to note that even those who DID understand that could nevertheless EXPRESS their understanding inappropriately.

He will explain exactly how, next.

The concept of “speaking in many tongues” was originally an injunction to communicate to everyone in his own language, or his own level.

Remember how the Holy Spirit speaks to each of us in his own language, and according to our personal experiences?

Jesus does this as well, as we have seen with Helen and Bill.

From what I have seen, all those beyond the veil do the same, though they do attempt to get the channel to “see” beyond their current understanding.

It hardly meant to speak in a way that NOBODY can understand.

Oh, my goodness! It is true, I went to such a church when I was in my teens.

It is easy to get caught up in the “magic” and “emotion” of the moment as you hope that you will be delivered from the pains you have been through, or receive a connection with Divinity.

This strange error occurs when people DO understand the need for Universal communication, but have contaminated it with possession fallacies.

Amen. We want to have that connection, and it is there just waiting to be acknowledged. Once you do acknowledge Him though.

Those still in the illusion of separation think you are rude, crazy, or “too big for your britches”.

“Little Miss Goody Two Shoes”, is how the world looks at you.

“You are to be beaten down and put in your place!”

“For none can know the will of God!”

And, trust me, if they cannot take you down, they will take your children down.

Such has been my experience, anyway.

So they claim, but it is not true!

The fear engendered by this misconception leads to a conflicted state in which communication IS attempted, but the fear is allayed by making the communication incomprehensible.

Jesus is doing so well in communicating to Helen and Bill what I have witnessed for a lifetime.

Sadly, it is not something that either of them had really participated in. Helen was a Jewish Atheist and Bill an agnostic.

Did Jesus know that someday someone would read this that knew what he was speaking of?

I believe he did. Or if he did not, the Holy Spirit did and that is why Jesus was prompted to speak of it.

Bill and Helen were interested in the ability of those outside of the physical realm to be able to speak to those here, obviously, since Helen was doing so.

Ken coming into the mix was hardly any wiser in spiritual things.

He mocked Helen’s comments and notes, instead of pondering them in his heart and trying to understand what Spirit was trying to get them to understand.

I am thinking specifically of the time Judith spoke of Helen saying that there would be special things that year.

Everyone thought and hoped it would be reconciliation between Helen and Bill.

It turned out to be the fireworks at a holiday celebration.

The Holy Spirit first needs to be heard, and then He must be “listened to”, so that the understanding of what He is communicating grows within you.

Then you develop a desire to listen to nothing else but Him. Of this, I testify.

It could also be said that the fear induced selfishness, or regression, because
incomprehensible communication is hardly a worthy offering from one Son of God to another.

So instead of coming closer to God and one another, they were joined only by the belief in a false witness that speaking in the gibberish of “tongues” makes you more spiritual and worthy than others.

Apparently, the world has yet to understand the witness of the Holy Spirit.

I am going to do everything within my power to bear witness of Him/It.

You know, I am not sure which it is.

A personage without a body, or an umbilical cord connecting us to the mind of God. It matters not, to me, either way.

I know that voice and I honor it, to the best of my ability.

Till next time, God bless, Namaste~
