Ego's world is run by the egoic thought system, based on an EITHER-OR mindset of separation. God's world is run by God's thought system, based on a BOTH-AND mindset of sharing. EITHER-OR is based on the idea of separation - there is a separation between who has and who has not, who does and who does not, what is and. . .
"To say, "Of myself I can do nothing" is to gain all power. And yet it is but a seeming paradox. As God created you, you have all power. " - ACIM "There is nothing my holiness cannot do. " - ACIM I want to be clear about this, because this is an often misunderstood matter. It's a question of. . .
God created you perfect. It's a done deal. You're already complete. You cannot add to yourself or take away. You can't be changed. You are permanently as God created you. He didn't leave anything out or fail to share anything or leave you less than completed. You can't be perfected or improved upon. You're already absolutely divine. So the one. . .
This pretty much explains why you have the freedom to deny God. "If you will accept yourself as God created you, you will be incapable of suffering. But to do this, you must acknowledge Him as your Creator. This is not because you will be punished otherwise. It is merely because your acknowledgment of your Father IS the acknowledgment of. . .
God's will for us is perfect happiness, all the time. Total safety, love, blessing, peace, joy, no problems, perfect health, invulnerability, miraculousness, innocence. The end of sadness, grief, pain, sickness, fear and death. God wants this for us all the time. Do we want this? Why aren't we happy and at peace right now? If you ask yourself, as you. . .
What you are, and what your brother is, is ONLY what has been given by God. Your inheritance, shared with your brother, comes only from God. You are permanent host to God. God is in you. He has shared his Will with you. He has given his Mind to you. You have his freedom and his love. You are ONLY. . .
THE DIVINE LOGIC OF THE KINGDOM <3 The Kingdom of God is God's thought system. It's a realm of mind and being in which there is a "logic" operating. It's a living logic. It is a functioning system of mind whose properties are derived from its foundation. The foundation of the system is God, so we have to begin by. . .
”Yet in this learning is salvation born. And what you are will TELL you of Itself. ” “I am come to tell you that the choice of which is true is not yours. ” I consider myself fairly devoted to ACIM. My attitude about is that it contains an expression of Truth, and that Jesus knows what the truth is. I have. . .
"What if you looked within and saw NO sin?" "Let me remember that there is no sin. " "There is no sin. " "There is no sin. Creation is unchanged. " "Before a holy relationship there is no sin. " I asked God, "please forgive me". HS responded, "for what?" Again I remembered, there is no sin. Does this mean God has completely forgiven. . .
LISTENING TO GUIDANCE - DOING GOD'S WILL At times, I ask for guidance. And I get the guidance. But then I go into a mode of trying to decide whether to follow the guidance, or not, which means I am not really listening to the guidance. I've noticed that this indicates a state of uncertainty, which is fear, an indecision,. . .
For many, ACIM is about self help and doing the lessons and trying to get back to a simplified idea of God/reality. But the scenario of what is happening in this world, why we're here, and what we're returning to, is part of a big picture "story" that I don't really see talked about a whole lot. At least not. . .
"The world you see is an illusion of a world, God did not create it, for what He creates must be eternal as Himself. " 1. God is permanent. Earth is not. Earth will end. 2. God is eternal. Earth is not. Earth does not last forever. 3. God can only create by extending himself, and so whatever He creates has. . .
The authority problem is an issue of authorship, power, and causality. ie, who is the author? Who caused? Who has the power to do so? Why has the authority to decide what the truth is?God is the primary authority who has the power and is the cause of His creations. When he creates his children in Heaven he uses his. . .
"Change", is the idea that Eternity has STOPPED being what it was, it has been destroyed, it has been replaced by something that did not exist, which also will be replaced by an upcoming denial of what is. Anything that changes is NOT REAL. Anything that changes is NOT OF GOD. Changes, which require time and space, are not reality. "What. . .
"***The world, in its original connotation, included both the proper creation of man by God, AND the proper creation by man in his Right Mind. ***" (and nothing else). "The latter required the endowment of man by God with free will, because all loving creation is freely given. Nothing in either of these statements implies any sort of level involvement, or,. . .
Here is the simple LAW OF GOD’S EXTENSION. 1. God can ONLY create (cause) that which is LIKE HIM (as the source), made OF HIM (same substance), with the same inherited abilities. 2. What God creates must be able to do what God does. It must SHARE all of God’s properties, AND pass them on fully to its own creations. . . .
"The world you see is an illusion of a world, God did not create it, for what He creates must be eternal as Himself. Yet there is nothing in the world you see that will endure forever. Some things will last in time a little while longer than others. But the time will come when all things visible will have. . .
"And if God created bodies, death would indeed be real. But God would not be loving. "Let's just be clear about something here. God creates or extends reality. Everything real is within God's being. Everything real comes from His Will. Ok. The entire "realm" of God is within Himself, and all of it is real and deliberately created BY HIM. SO. . . . . If we. . .
