Wherever you seem to go and whatever you seem to do your thoughts and words and attitudes and actions are demonstrating to everyone who you believe you are. Once the mind is clear and illuminated there is no question about the words and actions that seem to flow from alignment with God. In approaching this sacred alignment it is always important to ask “What is this for?” with regard to the things that pass through the mind. This question is an undoing or unraveling mechanism for returning the mind to Divine Silence. As ego motives and desires are seen as meaningless, the Meaning or Identity that the ego sought to deny becomes evident.
What the world calls “work” or “career” or “getting money” is a backdrop for undoing the ego until there is nothing left to obstruct the awareness of Divine Providence. As the mind Awakens it learns to follow Inner Guidance, Which is ever Present, and the mind discovers that all perceived “needs” are met in following this Guidance. Divine Ease and God’s Grace are reflected in a clear and open mind which has forgiven, thus transcending the belief in worldly problems. Once the belief in scarcity and reciprocity is released there is no desire to “get” anything from anyone. Wholeness knows no lack or need, and every step in the direction of Wholeness is helpful in Awakening via A Course In Miracles to our True Identity as Spirit.
In Awakening through A Course In Miracles it is important to remember to work with Love and to let all actions be a reflection of a tranquil mind. As the seeming debts of false belief give way to forgiveness, the seeming debts of money are handled by the Holy Spirit without an emphasis upon them. Expressing God’s Love ceases to seem awkward and seems more and more natural. Open communication is the priority and all ego attempts to achieve and get and fix and accumulate fall away. Work done with Love leaves the mind open to rest in God. Work done in Love leaves the mind in a natural State of Being, open to the I Need Do Nothing Solution. Work done in Love eliminates all “should’s” and “ought to’s” and “have to’s.” Everything flows from the Highest Good, the Will of God and the Will of God’s Beloved Creation. All that remains is a Song of gratitude.
The Call to Awaken is the Call into Divine Providence. To accept the Inner Guidance is to be without a problem. Trust in Guidance is most practical. There is nothing else to trust. This world is backwards and upside down, and nothing in distorted perception is as it seems. I am Calling you out of this upside down world. I am saying that the
Kingdom is not of this world. I am not asking you to “be in the world but not of it.” Nothing of this world will ever satisfy your holy mind, for this world was made as an attack on God and made to be a place where God could not enter. This world was made to deny the Truth of Divine Love. Now the core of Awakening is becoming clear: It is impossible to see two worlds and therefore it is impossible to make it “in the world.” You were not created to function in a world of images that God did not create.
When you forgive the cosmos you let go of the attempt to reconcile Truth with illusions, Spirit with matter, or Eternity with time. Allow the Holy Spirit to work through and in your mind and it becomes apparent that you have no competing “parts.” Forgive and see that all is whole and nothing is apart from mind. From on High there is nothing
to do but Observe. This is the meaning of “Above the battleground.” There is no stress or concern or confusion from Above. This is the Perspective of forgiveness A Course In Miracles offers your mind.
Appearances deceive. Nothing of the five senses will lead to Awakening to Love. The five senses serve the ego and were made report differences. As long as the illusion of judgment persists in awareness, the five senses bring witness to illusory categories that have no meaning and no reality. As judgment fragments perception, forgiveness unifies it. Yet this unification of perception, seeing the wholeness, is a Perspective of mind and not a function of the body. Beyond unified perception is the Vision of Christ, Which is not perceptual at all. This Abstract Light can literally be called Seeing or Sight, yet It does not involve the body at all.
The Holy Spirit instructs the mind very directly to drop ego thinking and belief. As you listen to the Holy Spirit you will find that taxes and bills get paid as long as you believe in them. The body is fed as long as you believe in it. Obligations and duties get met as long as you believe in them. Nothing is ripped away, yet everything is re-translated until the belief in specifics is dissolved forever. This is why I have asked you to question everything you believe. Only false belief seems to limit your
awareness. Truth is Abstract, and when the fear of Truth has gone all pain and striving is over. Nothing is simpler than Being as God created One Self. Give your mind permission to BE Still and Know, and It is already accomplished. Give your mind permission to drop the pursuit, and you discover what has always and forever been so.
The wheel of time was made to distract from the Still Center. Let go into this Center and peace is obvious.
