The Trinity is God’s one answer to the Son of Man’s one error, or “tiny mad idea.” (ACIM) The answer is: separation is corrected because it never took place, for, what we do in error, God corrects the instant we thought it took place. In our minds, we cling to the idea that not only was our error real, but we must pay for making it. Sin unrepeatable. Our blame for what we thought we did is the basis for all the insanity of the world we made. Through God’s mercy, His will, caring and love, healing in the form of His salvation enters our mind, as God’s will is done “in earth, as it is in Heaven.”

Since we have chosen in our world to see in specifics “Trinity” is a decent metaphor for our healing, our awakening as we are restored to sanity. It has no other purpose, but to guide us home, first because are the Son of God. God, we think, wrongly, extracts an exacting price for our error forever due. The Holy Spirit’s only purpose is correction of our mad ideas. Our concepts of sin, guilt and death (our unholy trinity) serves us well in this false concept of justice. Here is the beginning of the dream of separation formed, justice and truth abandoned in a mold of guilt, smoldering now as we seem to be split apart, blaming each other for the impossible, and in our own hell continuing to split upon split in every illusion we bow down and worship to. As we seem to oppose God, it can only be a mad world we make, that has no meaning, nor purpose. Yet, all that can really happen is that God, in response to our decision, still knows only One as a unified Creation, all in all, all there ever was and will be, the unity of oneness within us in Christ, as we are reminded we are One, in Spirit, within our Selves, as the Son of God. And where Christ is, God is, the thing that cannot change, will never change. Our minds are God’s deep and loving concern, He cares for His children, our brothers and sisters in union with Him. This is the full meaning of the Trinity. “Three” has no particular divine meaning. However it is the e only non-duality we get to experience here, because it is the only non-dual aspect of a mind so otherwise sick, it cannot comprehend its own sickness. It is God’s answer to an unrelated cause that took place in the mind of God’s holy child — again “a tiny mad idea” (ACIM) out of our mistaken thought system. It is His only response: as Holy as He is are we, His mercy and Love boundless, extended to the limitless. We thought we sinned in separation; God responded otherwise: no we did not separate, for there is no such thing, we can not do what cannot be.

So our whole journey now is one of forgiveness, forgiving ourselves for what we did not and cannot do, by the grace of God through the Holy Spirit and Christ within us, what we are. A return to sanity through God’s plan. For that, we need the gifts of the Trinity: our true connection with our older brother, Jesus, who teaches us that, with him we are a part in the Trinity, as we are one in Christ, our Higher Self; that we have the Holy Spirit within that part of our minds where God placed the Answer to our mistaken identity; and, it is in our unity with our Selves and one another we awaken again to our union with God. We are the Holy Trinity, as we are God’s Kingdom. “For thine is the Kingdom, the Power, and the Glory forever and ever.” Amen. We need do nothing but seek to follow His plan and stay vigilant for the work of the Holy Spirit. In other words, wake up, show up and watch the show! This is what the Atonement is for. It is Jesus’ very teaching in his lovely prayer: “Thy will be done in earth as it is in Heaven.” Let us join to let all sadness go, for it laments nothing.

A Child of God

Father, I know little here. Knowledge is of you. Preserved in that sacred place where all is saved in tact for your Son. With Your grace I will come to know Your gifts, what You have always wanted for us. Nothing has changed. You wait for me to find and accept the plan that is Yours for this sad world. How empty I feel when I stray into my chosen frailty. But I think You want me to be where I am to unlearn what keeps me from You: nothing but my decision to play a child’s game, thinking I’m lacking something. What can be so difficult to accept what is mine as You have so freely given? Today I will give up the idea I can make the false true, the hell I make real, the thought there is a life apart from You. 

“Blessed are the poor for theirs is the Kingdom.” 

All come here broken. The world is a place to discover missing identity — a journey without distance to goal which has never changed. (ACIM). Yet we are in Truth, all part of, whole, now. Although separation, the decision to be here, appears to separate us, nothing, however, can. God abides in us no matter what we think about ourselves and each other. Because God is indivisible, separation has never taken place. That should show us the real power of our mind — to think falsely, as well as rightmindedly. We could see it’s real power, but it is our choice not to. Nonetheless, we are one with our Creator no matter what we believe or think. We have never left our home. Once we are in the dream that seems to tell us we can all things about separation clearly seem real. A good deal of our reality appears as suffering, a symptom of false ideas about not knowing who we are. Our seeming lack of an identity. Thinking we do not know our Source is always at the core of our belief in insanity and sickness. Many addict themselves to things that seem to relieve pain. Without a Source, false gods will do. Or, we abuse one another in all forms of attack, perpetrators or victims. Enemies or the “innocent” recipients of attack. We have never found a way to fully and effectively defend our ourselves. Save one. The person who resists not evil, recognizing that what does not exist cannot harm. Bodies can be hurt, made to suffer and destroyed. Yet we in spirit, cannot be, for that is eternal and has never left its Source. Our insistence that Truth cannot be has left us without identity. When I ask “Who am I?”, setting the question aside, the answer must be, “I don’t know.” Even though I think I know better. Being here remains the only hope I have, the only reality I have for reaching my home in the one and only relationship that truly is my place, God’s love for me and you and everyone. 
God can and will bring God’s children home. To let this happen, and it has already happened, we simply need to look upon one another as we were created. My validation of your identity is a simple practice. I must every day practice the truth that my brothers and sisters here are just as God created each and everyone one. From the arms of His love. We don’t ever get to change this, no matter what in my perception seems to define them otherwise. Should I perceive otherwise I will inevitably think they have stolen my identity from me. None have, nor can. No one has what I think has been taken from me, who I am. I do not need validation from another that assures I am real. I need only validate them. I need not blame them for what I otherwise have projected upon them. I have no holes in me anyone can fill, because there are no holes in me. I am as God created me. I am not a body, which I think lacks something I can find in your body. I lack nothing. I have all from All. I am blessed among the poorest who have All. The world holds nothing that I want. (ACIM). Because I have no cause to want. We need just awaken to Truth. I join with the Holy Spirit, my Self and you as God takes the last step for us. I need do nothing but listen, as heaven rejoices. 
I bless you, brother/sister with the Love of God, which I would share with you. For I would learn the joyous lesson that there is no love but God’s and yours and mine and everyone’s. Lesson 127, ACIM

Be Here Now

An ego gets touched an arrow is reached for–
Wait.  Who are you dear child of our Father
Who cries through pain only for His love?  Such Infants we are together.  Made in His likeness.  I do not see you, dear child.  Yet His holy Son does.

Worry not now you who lashes in terror. There is none. Be sure holy child of our Father, there is none. Fear is the stranger here. Yet, a stranger who doesn’t find a real home anywhere.

Awaken Child of Our Father. Let us go home now together. I bless you in His name. Come now, with me. I know who you are. And now I see who I am.

We found each other to travel together.  Not apart.

That our egos touched for a tiny mad moment, it matters not. Our journey was made in heaven. What is not, cannot stop His love for us. My answer to your beckoning is to come with me now.

Let us not delay. Our innocence waits only in time. Love is our chariot.
The fire will not stop us.

What isn’t real cannot be real.

Book Review: Patmos – Three Days Two Men One Extraordinary Conversation, by C. Baxter Kruger, Ph.D.

Review by Bob Pajer

“The assumption (italics mine) of separation is the great darkness.” His words hit me like a blow to my gut, but before I could recover he continued on. “Then, you see, we have to find our way to God. The Greeks offer their way through their minds; the Pharisees offer theirs through external rules. This is Ophis’s chief trick—blind us to how close the Lord is, closer than breath: we’re in him, and he’s in us. Ophis deceives the nations by one lie—separation. Our joy”—his face lit up like the rising sun—“is to tell the truth, let the light shine—and persevere the tribulation of enlightenment.”

As with most of C. Baxter Kruger’s book, Patmos, this is revolutionary thinking. I grew up under the tutelage of Catholic teachers who would often say, trying to answer our questions, “its a mystery.” And I suppose we were comfortable with that because it was easier to proclaim there was no answer to the mysteries of faith, given the upcoming at the time Baltimore catechism test. Yet one wonders now why it was so difficult to tell us simply, we are Spirit, God is in us, we are in Him, in His mind. As John’s tells us. Statements of Truth might have saved us much tribulation. To this day I have the damnedest time believing I am not a body, but spirit. Or, that understanding the Trinity is possible. That understanding came about by seeing myself in it, along with everyone else as the Son. John speaks of being in Jesus, but I believe he means in Christ, just as Jesus led his life to prove.

Kruger’s book is filled with a new way of looking at the teachings of Jesus. Well not new actually. It seems to me John proclaims them very clearly in his Gospel. Yet these truths were certainly contrary to what we were taught at St. Jerome Elementary School. No one ever said about Jesus that he, as the Son, found God within His own mind, as he became Christ who now waits for his brothers and sisters to find exactly what he did. That the Trinity was God’s loving response to our mistakes upon coming here, and staying here, to follow the ego’s plan for salvation. Kruger does not say in his book, the Holy Spirit is God’s temporary Voice, to communicate to us God’s plan for our salvation, a plant that must even, as we see differently from the ego’s grand illusion, time. Our response to God’s plan of course is we have a better plan, the ego plan, which is not based on love but on grievance and resentment, as it is carried out by us in the world.

Kruger’s book involves a novel story of a 21st century person who visits the Apostle John exiled on the island of Patmos. Its a fascinating story which blends John’s Revelation and Gospel with an explanation of the Nicean Creed, as John would would come to understand that and hope we would finally understand his Gospel and live by it. The Apostle’s major concern is that the separation amongst us, at best an “assumption”, we really believe took place. How can we possibly separate from God’s will? We think we have in the Apostle’s time here, and in ours of course by believing God is somehow outside us, others are outside us, as we live in a body that isolates us from other bodies. This is of course is the “assumed” separation we think we accomplished, feel like there’s nothing else to take its place, have lost our unity with our Selves, with everyone who has come to this world along with our distance in time and space from our Source. Jesus’ first words of his prayer tell us this isn’t so. It is “Our Father” we seek in all we do mistakenly, yet feel guilty over it, blame another, or whole races of people, to scapegoat the very guilt we can never dismiss: the thought we did it and God is going to punish us when He finally catches up with us doers.

Although this is not sin, it is close to what Christians think of as original sin. Jesus came to us, not sent by His Father to die, but to teach us how to live, in joy, peace and happiness, under a loving Father. Separation is a dream, as are all the illusions we experience here, thinking we can oppose God, have a will separate from Him and in the process give up our inheritance which is happiness. God’s judgment is simply I love my Son. We have not changed God’s mind about us. We are the Kingdom, His Sons and Daughters, still in God’s mind safe, as we find ourselves waiting, waiting and waiting for God. He has never left us. There is nothing to wait for, only our own stubborn desire to remove God’s authority from Him and have it for ourselves. We will waken to what we truly are, our greater Self, Christ, one with our Father. I believe that is how John would describe our being here, as does Jesus.

Much of Kruger’s book is about John, as he questions Aiden, (our author,) who in the story as written finds himself transported to John’s cave on Patmos through a white light vision. The vision occurs at the door of his home. Once they meet, the two get along very well. They have interesting discussions about separation and what has occurred since John left us. The discussions between the two tell an exciting story that reflect our human story as Spirit here in this world. The time journey by Aiden and it seems time moment in John’s life, our century, superimposed into Saint John’s time is carefully crafted to be real. While it is told to help us in understanding John the Apostle, we become ready for salvation under God’s plan for salvation. (No matter what we think of ours, which is doomed to keeping us in hell.)
In a later chapter, John adds fire to the revolutionary thinking. Augustine comes up in the conversation between he and Aiden. When John learns of Augustine, here is what John says about him: ‘If he believed that we are separated from Jesus,’ “St. John said carefully”, ‘and if he, as you said, is the Father of your Western tradition, then his ideas led the West to exhaustion, no matter how much he loved and knew Jesus.’ Of course, John has the upper hand, he really did know Jesus in the flesh. John goes on to say, ‘Perhaps it was through the ideas he passed on that the deepest log in your beaver dam was put in place. But do not fear; the Holy Spirit always works to redeem our blunders.’ The beaver dam is a reference to one of Aiden’s dreams, symbolizing our blocked consciousness when it comes to our understanding God, and our very blocks to Love. Blocked further by the punishment we bring on ourselves for our “sins”, in place of the pure love God has for His children, no matter what nonsense he is up to, and his final judgment: we are as He created us and He has never not loved us, His will for us is only perfect happiness, and that has never not been so. I would say, God just does not do sin and punishment. We do. And it is our log jam. It is a masterpiece of the ego, leading to death. John says later that Jesus would not back down from his love for the Pharisees, no matter what they said or believed, bringing the message of forgiveness once again to us.

Kruger, an extraordinary scholar, struggles some in his dialogue with our Apostle from the past. For one, I think we need not complicate the Holy Spirit’s role and place in the Trinity. Adam made a fatal mistake, thinking we could separate from God. We assume we have. Although, because we are dealing with the only Mind in the universe, and as we think we make real. Still, that reality is not reality. God only possesses reality. His Son does as well of course. However, we don’t think as God’s Son. While truly that is what we are, we delude ourselves in an impermanent made up world we think is real. In Truth, we merely dream a dream of separation. God cannot be separated from, for God is cause. We His effect. Cause and effect cannot be separated. Nothing can put that relationship asunder. This is not a wedding, which can only occur in our dream as a preferential, or special relationship. In fact there is no such thing as a relationship separated from God’s, in Reality. There is just One, our unity with God in God’s mind, from which we have never left. The Holy Spirit is here with us because of Jesus full understanding and perfect consciousness of Union with God, as he took on our only reality, the Christ, our true Self. Our false self is what we operate from in this dram of separation. God is the only reality, which creates the union we seek. There is none other. That reality is One. The Holy Spirit understands this, understands the ego self, and knows God, for He is God’s Voice for us, our only Teacher, along with Jesus, with one additional role, taking us home according to God’s plan. Once we return to what we have never left we will be One with God and the Holy Trinity will be, well, just Holy.

To all who come here, save Jesus and God knows how many others, that doesn’t seem to be a blessing at all. Out of fear, we hold onto guilt for what we think we have done. We resist within the dream as this guilt strikes terror in our will we think we can make up separate from God’s will. What should I, or would I do in God’s loving mind? Oneness, as it can only be, God’s love for His Son, can be our largest of all fears, because it is so threatening to our egos. The ego does not die easily. The ego’s grand scheme is filled with logic and under its thought system, foolproof. Thank heaven its not “God-proof!”, as Jesus says in A Course in Miracles. Well, after all it is made up, not created, although in the Mind of God, because there is no other place. Which is why it is but an illusion. Nothing real can exist in God’s mind outside of God’s own creation, the Kingdom of Love, all encompassing with no opposites.

The Holy Spirit will serve His purpose here as our Corrector: The return of God’s Son to Out Father, through holy awakening. There is only One God.  We will accept what we cannot change:  this truth.

Love and Forgiveness

Love is. It is what we are. Having is being. God’s inheritance, which is love, can appear here in this world to be accepted or rejected, learned or refused. A kind of love for this, a kind of love for something other. Our world tests love and divides its meaning as it does everything else: in dual consciousness. Our world, the world God did not create, however, is like all duality, but an illusion, in many forms, an hallucination. Yet, it is by its unlearning of itself as a part of God’s plan for salvation, our ticket out of here, returning to “dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”  Love is not a learned facet of our humanity, for it will go nowhere it cannot be fully all encompassing and have no opposite. Like knowledge and truth, it is safeguarded for us in the home we never left. We do have pure loving thoughts here, however.  Most everyone does, as a part of salvation.

We can effectively extend these loving thoughts, as Jesus did on the cross in identifying Barabus’ holiness. What Barabus could not do for himself, Jesus did for him. We all belong in Paradise. Miracles are an identification of what is in truth natural. Loving thoughts are actually our only reality in the world we make up, using the fascinating ability to dream. Every loving thought is true, and being true, is eternal. Even in a dream. The Holy Spirit gathers these for us, and we do take all loving thoughts with us. There is no room for anything else. They are what we are, love. Love created you and you are still exactly as you were created. Teach only love, for that is what you are. (ACIM)

We do have a purpose in this world. Contrary to what we may think, this sole purpose is love, as it is reflected in the practice of forgiveness. “Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.” — as Jesus states in the Lord’s Prayer for us. That clause, however, is a part of the section in the prayer that shifts to use of collective pronouns, meaning a horizontal shift, in relationship to one another, in spiritual practice. It is not a plea to God for His forgiveness. He does not forgive, for He does not condemn, an essential aspect of love. Love does not condemn. Only we do. Thus needing forgiveness. And why Jesus treated it as his primary message and our primary function living in this world. Forgiveness is synonymous with happiness. If you are happy, you are forgiving.

Forgiveness — the Only Way

We are “chosen in Christ before the foundation of the world” (see Ephesians 1:4).

Cause and effect are one in what Paul says here in this seemingly incredible statement. It hits our dualistic, separately contrived world like a ton of bricks. God’s bricks. As Richard Rohr says, reality is that subject joins with subject, there is no object.

Our world, however, by choice is based on our decision to separate from our Source, and disappear into the dual consciousness of ego, a thought system that grows upon itself like a cancer, splitting off and splitting off again and again. There is nothing unlike our unity in God’s Oneness, no such opposite thought system separate from God. What is one cannot not exist in The Oneness of God’s Mind where we exist.   “God is or He isn’t,” as Bill Wilson tells us in his non-dual statement in the book, Alcoholics Anonymous.   So when we think we exist as separated from God (actually we don’t think much about it at all), we can’t exist. Our egos do the magic: we believe there is existence apart from God, and in our mind so it seems to be, albeit with one unsurmountable problem: being a causeless thought it can only seem to be and  it is only love that can be extended into reality.

All ideas, like all thoughts, do not leave their source — coming under the same immutable, changeless laws of God’s love for His children, truly extended to be extended eternally and endlessly.   Love does not need to go anywhere to be extended. For Existence has always been and forever will be everywhere. While fear, all that the ego can make of itself, for that is what it is, goes nowhere. “Nothing” cannot extend itself, 0+0=0.

However, the Holy Spirit, in Her ceaseless labor in the field of God’s perfect love for us, reminds us we are trying to think apart from God and we are always set on the path of truth, whether or not we know it at the moment or not.  We might sense a kind of tug, one of thousands upon us, revealing that  something isn’t quite right minded here and we begin momentarily at least thinking in truth.  Yet, for most of us, denial sets in and we turn to the defense of the ego and using that defense, think again in fear, and again apart from God.   Our ego says if you listen to anything but it, you are in danger.  Its message is they’ll be unwanted consequence, pain and suffering, so instead of listening to the Voice of Salvation, we make up a false God, or distortion of God’s Law,  to “protect” us, to go with our false self, and live happily ever after in a made up chaotic kingdom full of sin, guilt and then we die, the ultimate unreality for the ego, bones crumbling into dust. Can this be what God created? Can this be His love for His Son?

Richard Rohr so correctly says, if we had just gone in the other direction, toward “being chosen in Christ (Self) before the foundation of the world.”, which is not the direction Adam took, nor I ten minutes ago, where would we be? However, we are exactly where we are supposed to be, Bill Wilson teaches, to help recovering drunks stay planted in the moment, now, for that is the only place, with God, where he/she finds the defense from the next drink — hoping it will never come. God is always in the now. However, God is in everything. There are no wrong places to be, just better choices. And we can always be where we want to be, for the love of God. The one power left to us in a dualistic thought system is choice, i.e., decision making. Choosing not to make 10 fighter jets in 10 countries in the world and diverting these savings to joint cancer research would provide enough money and resources to cure cancer forever. Isn’t cancer then our choice like all suffering in this world?,
Alas, again thanks to the Loving Voice for God, the Holy Spirit, we can’t stand the guilt of wrong choices. If you separate from God you will feel guilty and guilt leads to the ego’s direct path to its art of the grievance. While love holds no grievances, we do. Grievances are insane, as is guilt. But, both, we think gives us an out: while judgement, self-righteousness, condemnation are like super glue, binding quickly and securely, there is always the ego’s masterpiece, blame, which is its “proof” there’s something out there to threaten us. There’s something that will release the bond. This is one of the egos’s most special weapons. While covering its design for self destruction, it deflects our real fear that God will find us and punish us once and for all for, actually, what we did not do, separate.

Which is of course what Adam did and here is where he blames his lovely wife.  We can in fact teach only one thing in this world. It is not knowledge, for that is of God and we have made the choice of not being of God — impossible but thinkable. We can only teach Love, if we think of teaching being communication, which it clearly must be. Although it must be just as Jesus taught us, through the reflection of love, forgiveness. That is our only way to God. It is interesting it is in the final analysis, through the Christ in one another we get there on “a journey without distance to a goal that has never changed.” (Jesus’ words in A Course in Miracles)

Essay on the Christian Trinity

God is One. Trust there is no trinity where God seems to be the lead, the other two somehow lesser. Our “natural” inclination in separation is to split off into more than one. An inclination that is in fact insane. Our ego, the seeming effect of separation, although very real to anyone who has an ego, always speaks first in this regard, and is forever wrong. The Trinity we know of and are introduced to in Christianity is a natural consequence of separation, as is Christianity itself. Jesus has given us the most holy message there can possibly be. We build cathedrals that along with everything else in this world will pass into dust. His message will not. It is forever knocking on our door. Yet we either don’t hear it, or ignore the caller. 
Without separation, Adam’s lonely decision to stake his claim in God’s Kingdom, there would be no need for the Trinity, for the Holy Spirit was and remains God’s Answer to Adam’s poor decision. When the mad idea of separation entered Adam’s mind the Holy Spirit entered God’s Mind as the answer. God would not have His Son wander off from His holy mind which He created as joined with Him. The Son thus remains where he cannot not be, while a false self is made up by the son, who enters into a dreamlike and unreal state of mind, yet under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Should you think this is not the way things are, I suggest you ask the the Holy Spirit anything and you will see that He will guide you. He knows everything about you, and everything about God. And everything that is in God’s plan to bring you home to your Father, while yet in your dream of separation from Him. We are God’s heavenly children, safe in the hands of God where we have always and forever will be. At this moment we in earth are all called to follow this plan we did not make. Not many choose to listen, but we are all called. For God’s Son is eternally one with Him. Why doesn’t God Himself communicate with us? Why such an intermediary as the Holy Spirit?” First, God is always revealing Himself to us through His love, His eternal connection with us in the form of revelation, our only direct contact with Him. Otherwise our contact with Him is through our love for one another, revealed to us as forgiveness of ourselves and one another. We are seemingly separated from one another and God, only in this regard, by un-forgiveness. There is no other way to separate, although separation takes myriad forms under its fierce tutor fear, the ego actually. All grievance between and among us is separation. Think, Adam does not become separated until he makes the fatal decision to blame Eve for what happened (blaming God.) He treats what must have been enormous guilt the way we do, projection, or self condemnation. We are still in this mode of operation today in this world. Of course we are stuck in it, not because God is punishing us, as Adam must have thought and many often think, but because we are needlessly punishing ourselves for what we believe is sinful. We make each grievance a sin, seeing it not as the mistake it always is, no matter the form, condemn ourselves, and project all the guilt from that on to each other, We will of course one day discover what God never stops knowing, His Son is innocent because no harm is possible to Him or his Holy Son. That is Jesus’ message, from his life here, on the cross, and above all from the resurrection of Jesus as Christ. Out of the resurrection of the Self of countless others in this world we will see the same message. The Trinity is part of God’s plan to ensure this will be, for it is His will. Thy Will be done is forever done. We are not waiting for God. He is patiently waiting for us to awaken from our dream in which we will join with the Holy Spirit in the holiness we have never left as the One Son of God. The Trinity will then have fulfilled God’s plan and the knocking on our door will forever stop. Without the impossible the Son will join with the Holy Spirit and God, our creation will become what has never changed, the Oneness of our Father. The Almighty Caller will be welcomed as the Answer. The knocking will end as a final triumphant chord of Knowing. 

What is Dual Counsciousness? Not Consciousness at All

The essence of non-duality, or spiritual oneness in spiritual now is that what we must in understanding it, consider that its opposite cannot exist; and, if we insist it does exist, we are put into, or we place ourselves into a sleep, where all we think we see is only real to us; where the very basis of realty, Truth, is true for all, not different for each of its separated parts our consciousness or identity here as we see it in this world.

In Truth, truth is true. If we try to separate anything out from it, it cannot be true. We cannot be real if we have decided duality is real. There is no way to live in a dual world without believing in illusions. Even our breathing here is dual: in and out. We do seem to live, although only to ourselves. Only non-dual pure consciousness is real. Well, almost. Duality on the other hand establishes by its nature an un-real thought system. A dream. The reason dreams are so powerful, while illusory, is we continue to live in the Power we have never left, the mind of our Creator, within a loving Father, which art in heaven, where HeShe has never not been and always will be. Where, hold onto your seats, we are dreaming we are in our own world, a world kind of a mess (chaotic at best, cruel and vengeful, at worst,) because God did not create it. Fear not about this. Our Father is holy and His holiness is bestowed on His beloved child, what we really are, dwelling in His mind eternally safe, as we awaken to where we have never not been, heaven, His Kingdom he shares with us. As it is in Heaven, so it is in earth, our holy mind joined forever with the One Holy Mind.

To awaken we do need help, which He lovingly provides. At least one of us, split off, who fully recognized what he is, demonstrated we can do the one thing we think impossible: to not look outside ourselves to project onto, but look within and see we are the Light, the Light is strength that makes us all invulnerable. Strength through love for one another. I can love for you if you cannot find Love in this moment. Yes, to cut through the dream of untruth, we need our daily bread as we stand together as the “we” in we-ness to take this bread and share with all those as holy as he. And we as he, whether or not we know this. Seeking is enough, as He who speaks for God, speaks to us every second, as he uses time we made to separate from Him, for us.

We give now in our holiness, forgiving ourselves, as in that holy instant we forgive everyone, in a dream where we thought we were alone and found ourselves belonging to all who are born of All to give to all. Now we live. Living in His world where the only temptation can be believing we might lose our holiness and think the impossible again: He seems at times to have left us. But as I look into all their eyes as we join together in his name I can now only say: Thine is the Kingdom, the Power and the Glory, for you are dear child exactly that One. Amen.

It is God’s strength in you that is the light in which you see, as it is His Mind with which you think. ACIM. 92
