YOU ARE LOVED AND SAFE
Jesus Expanding The Miracle Principles
Given In His Course In Miracles
[as it appeared in the April 2010 Newsletter]
15. Each day should be devoted to miracles.
Oh, yes! Indeed. Creation Itself is miraculous, teeming with Good. Would not the learning of this Good, the vision of miracles, be a more interesting use of your time than the pursuit of more and the hours spent zoning out? Rather than: how much money did I make today? – how about: how many times did I notice God supplying my All today? Lest those of You in finance feel unfairly judged, let Me say here that I have nothing against money. It would be cumbersome – for the ego, that is – to buy houses hotels in Monopoly with good deeds and miracles.
Let Us be sure to remember, though, that the symbol is never a true substitute for the Real. You exist eternally by the Movement of God – the Presence-ing of God – and your Existence is ever complete.
The purpose of time is to enable man to learn to use it constructively. Time is thus a teaching device, and a means to an end. It will cease when it is no longer useful in facilitating learning.
When You all turned your backs on God, You suddenly found no stability to your experience – like an astronaut free-floating in space, unable to control movement. Eternity and Heaven include no rules of gravity, and yet there is a Divine Order in which We all fit with joy.
Everyone is absolutely essential; and that Order – which in no way imposes Itself upon You, but rather You are an integral part of It – that Order is your Basis – the … there is not a word for It that is suitable. Even Source does not give the idea of just how … harmonious … Reality is and how Inclusive – All-Inclusive – and therefore, just how important YOU are.
Lacking memory of this framework of Heaven, You have instead time and space, poor, poor substitutes for Now and Here. Actually, there are no substitutes for Reality; time and space simply give You a strange framework in which to play your games.
The only proper use of the word ‘time’ is that it’s time to give this strange view of the world up and take on My yoke – My Way of seeing things. It is a beautiful View. I wish You could all see your own magnificence.

INTRODUCTION TO MIRACLES
I. Principles of Miracles
16. Miracles are teaching devices for demonstrating that it is more blessèd to give than to receive.
Yes, here We are with the wonderful rules of Reality – where everyone is equally blessèd. Why more blessèd? Because You are all so full of yourselves that more becomes a burden. Even the more of Good finds no place to get in with a mind full of itself.
The willingness to give – even of a limited sense of self – leaves space for the Divine to enter. Then You really have something Good to give.
They simultaneously increase the strength of the giver and supply strength to the receiver.
This is absolutely perfect for what I am wanting to say to Jennifer vis à vis the place she needs to rest in – abide as – in order to support her son’s willingness for healing.
You remember the Divine Law that in giving, You are receiving. Your Love is your Strength. The problem in mental illness – or, for that matter, mental aberration of any kind – is that, as I have alluded to You in what I’ve had to say about autism – self-ism, literally – the religion is the one of oneself. It is by no means limited to those so diagnosed, but actually covers the entire ego perspective.
The healing for self-absorption is Love. Therefore, the ‘stronger’ gets to express their Love – which naturally increases with every Expression – as they give, while the recipient, having gaps- that is not quite the word … It is like cell receptors in the brain. If they are blocked by emotional substances, they are not free to receive nutrition – in this case, the Nutrition of Love. … However, like the Light penetrating the darkness, the Love penetrates and loosens the clogs blocking the reception of Love. Persistence in listening for and to the Voice for Love is the key.
Am I talking about human love – based on survival? No. I am talking about the Love that is ever busy acknowledging That Which Is Real about each and every One and each and every Thing. There’s not much … resistance put up to that. Everyone feels the glow of that acknowledgement, whether they can put it into words or not. By this Acknowledgement You have a Temple – a Sanctuary of Love – that You carry with You – as You – wherever You are.
As You sit with your sleeping son, acknowledging what is Divine about him, the hospital room transforms – trans-substantiates into a Holy Sanctuary – a Temple of God. Every one there is brought into – enters into – the Divine Presence. What was hell is seen to be Heaven – have been Heaven all along.
Is this too much to ask? That You might – right here in life – that You might come to play with Me as We gently waken our drowsy family. Heaven Here. Miracles are the transcendence of the body.
What is My Meaning here? Am I wanting You to leave your body – float off as disembodied mind? No. The separation of what You call ‘mind’ and what You call ‘body’ is impossible, as body is both noun and verb: mind expressed as well as mind-expressed. There would be no body without mind, and it is impossible for mind not to express body, being its only source; therefore, body without mind is also impossible.
Transcending the body merely means loosing oneself from the thought that what You are is a body. What you are is Mind-Expressed, and that is a beautiful thing. From there, miracles are seen to be Divinely Natural.
To the human or ego sense of things, body is something dense, woundable, perishable, called matter. It is no such thing. Your True Body is the Embodiment of Mind; your present experience of your body is the embodiment of the pretend mind with a little ‘m’ – the ego.
(Note: November 29, 2006; transcriber’s question: This is so like what You gave me to say to Jose today. Do You want it added here? Yes. Listen, and I will give it to You fresh: When You are listening to the Voice for fear: the ego, then the bottom line about the body is the id. When you are listening to the Voice of Love – be it Me or God or the Holy Spirit – the basic fact about body is Revelation, seen as a miracle.)
They are sudden shifts into invisibility, away from a sense of lower-order reality. That is why they heal.
Again, the shift into the invisible is the Movement of mind to Mind – the shift from the unreal to the Real. As the Real shines, a shift happens which You call healing. It is really more properly a Movement toward Reality – a Movement that seems involuntary but is really the action of the Holy Spirit – rather than the ego – over-riding the ego to allow Divine Normalcy to work. Allow the Divine Perfection to perfect You.
Now I want to clarify something here: While a healing of any kind is a return to the Divine Normal – a healed ‘human body’ is not the Normal. The ‘human’ body or situation is not what is actually present. It is the faulty, limited – or ego – view of the Kingdom of Heaven, a Kingdom that is always Normal – always Perfect. This is why I said to my disciples: “Be Ye perfect even as your Father, which is in Heaven” – which is the Heavenly Experience – “is Perfect.”
What is the Father? The Father is the Allness – Infinite, entire Creation – as absolute Perfection. To simplify it: Each Idea of God is Perfect, in and of Itself. The Father is the Perfection of All as absolute Harmony, each Idea perfectly interacting- No, there is a better word. … Each Idea perfectly dancing, All moving as the most exquisite choreography. Realize that this is an Infinite Experience, and You will have a sense of the enormity of the Peace and Harmony and Beauty that Reality is.
And to the ego, it is hard to get on with only one other.
Now do you see the importance – the usefulness – the ability of the Father-Mother Mind to Guide You correctly? That’s enough for tonight. I want you to let the hugeness of God sink in.
May 20, 2006
Let Us come back to: “Be Ye therefore perfect”. What is this Perfection but pure fact – the unmarred, unstained cleanness and clarity of the fact – the absolute Truth – of your Be-ing. As your Father, as your Father-Mother God Source is perfect, so too, are You.
Is it any wonder then, that the stubborn ego mind attributes pain, disasters, illness, death to God’s inscrutable ways, while yet parroting the words that God is Love? And yet, in its inconsistency, the ego is very consistent because it loves to inflict pain and suffering on those it says it loves, in order to control them. Indeed, as it has been accepted: What is the god of a mortal, but a god of death – or taking it to its conclusion, death itself.
After all, what is it that everyone so firmly believes in, without a doubt? Only death holds this supreme confidence. So then, what has your god become but death?
And yet all this only takes place in your strange fancies for God – Our Source Itself – continues Shining, Be-ing You and All Reality while You toss and turn and moan in foolish dreams as Love Itself – Joy Itself – waits patiently for your awakening.
