INTRODUCTION TO MIRACLES
I. Principles of Miracles
May 25, 2006
20. Miracles reawaken the awareness that the Spirit, not the body, is the altar of truth.
It is the awareness that … Spirit – not body is the Altar of not only Truth, but of Life, Love, Principle, Identity. Never – never – are any of You ‘mortals’.
Your Divine Principle, or Source, is always God, Spirit. You are not from the proverbial sperm and egg. These are just childish games and rules invented by the dreamers. It is necessary to wake up from them. This is why I walked on water and through walls.
I was not playing parlor games with My disciples, but rather wanting to jolt them out of their complacency with so-called matter.
It was not done overnight – nor frequently in the past 2000 years; and yet, at any moment You can waken, realize the strange rules, with which You have bound yourself and others, are merely strange, not rules at all.
There is no mortal. The ghosts and goblins that you see called ‘human’ are no more real than Halloween costumes of the same.
The individuals – thinking they are really clever and inventive – have come up with their persona – (which, as you know, is ‘mask’ in Latin) and have become obsessively identified with it, forgetting that it is just a pointless figment of their imagination.
Indeed, such a thought would send most dreamers into a defensive rage. (Yes, it is good to note and understand that all rage is a defensive stance, while also being an addiction.)
Who are these individuals? Again: anyone who prefers the unreality of dreams to the Joy and Peace and – yes, Fun! – of Life as One with God. So count yourself among them, while You wish to idly dream on, making all your own decisions. And yet, the moment that You turn to Join – before You’ve yet to speak – a hand has clasped your outstretched one, and … all your loneliness is gone. Spirit now is free to work, as You defer to It.
The recognition of the Help frees mind to hear. This is the recognition that leads to the healing power of the miracle.
What did I say to you those years ago that cut right through your fear? That Spirit is your loved one’s Reality; and when acknowledged – that Truth reigns supreme. And so it was, as your fear melted, it melted hers (for minds are joined) – and the healing of her body freely commenced.
The healing of the mind takes only such a shift. Her mind is Mind – as free as Spirit – hatred, rage and fear can stick not to the Light.
21. Miracles are natural expressions of total forgiveness. I think We will continue to speak on this because there is a need, not just in your experience but multiplied a billion-fold. Your world is raging, a defensive move against the fear. And all that will dissolve that rage is summed up in the single word ‘forgiveness’. There is much more to this than the letting go of grievances, as freeing as that is. It is a shift of focus – of raison d’être – a change of mind for why You’re here.
Almost everyone has come to gratify addiction. A simple glance at your own behavior, as well as that of others, is enough. There are many of them: anger, fear, drugs, sex, power, dominance, victim, control, war games, money, complaint. This is the state We have discussed before of being here for getting.
To be here for giving constitutes the state of ‘for-giveness’. It is the only way to put the ego to the side.
Although it was unspoken then, it surely is clear that I came to give – not get. The gifts were freely taken by greedy children, most of them, without a thought to what lay unseen behind the Gift of Healing.
Those who play at being ‘mortal’ are so hungry for things, for relief from all their pain and lack. And yet the Gift, when taken and not understood, is like admiring and wearing the beautiful wrapping paper, while the Garment of the Gift of Life lays, discarded on the floor.
When You are miracle-ready, this means You are ready to accept God’s Giving. What does this really mean? Who wouldn’t want God’s Gifts? ‘Oh God help me! … After I’ve tried these vitamins, doctors, drugs, high colonics, surgeries, therapies, radiation, chemotherapy.
Heal me please when none of these really work. And, while You’re at it, please don’t ask me to love my nasty boss, controlling father-in-law or the neighbors who play rock music at 1:00 a.m., or my child who just pierced her navel.’
Accepting miracles, God’s Gifts, means the beginning of accepting the All-Giving of God. Which means – at least in a small degree – to begin to remember Home.
More of You need to begin to allow the miracles You experience to change your lives, instead of just accepting them for making the human experience (so-called) more comfortable – temporarily more comfortable. A healing of a headache is a statement that You need to have no more of them. God’s Gifts are permanent.
Through miracles, man accepts God’s forgiveness by extending it to others. So, how shall You extend the purpose of giving – of being here for giving – to others? It is a two-step waltz. The first step is the Acknowledgement of the Divine Presence of God as your neighbor and yourself. And the second equal in importance is the Gift of active Love, which You will be Guided to extend.
‘Oh, You’re the blessèd child of God, be well.’ – leaves the Gift still half undone. Ask Me, ask God, and You will be Guided what to say and what to give so that the wounded one may really feel the Love and find their healing come – not through your ministrations, but because of them – your willingness to give.
And from your Gift, extended in the Name of God (unspoken may it be), something New takes place for Giver and Giftee.
A small remembrance of How It Is has now appeared for both of You – a ray of Heaven in the midst of hell, which somehow glows with possibilities brand-new. And both of You are one-step nearer Home.
