GUIDANCE ON AWAKENING~*~
I’d like to talk on real rehabilitation, which is to Awaken. Let’s start with these words from the Course:
“I must have decided wrongly because I am NOT at peace.
I made the decision myself, but I can also decide otherwise.
I WILL to decide otherwise because I WANT to be at peace.
I do NOT feel guilty because the Holy Spirit will undo all
the consequences of my wrong decision IF I WILL LET HIM.
I WILL to let Him by allowing Him to decide for God for Me.”
Let’s go back to the place where You made the decision. Now this Course passage is referring to the second sleep, the one within the sleeping of the dream of separation. However, the words are applicable to both and to the point I’m wanting to make to You:
“How you wake is the sign of how you have used sleep. To whom did You give it? Under which teacher did you place it? Whenever you wake dispiritedly, it was not of the Holy Spirit. Only when You awaken joyously have you utilized sleep according to the Holy Spirit’s purpose.”
So at the time of separation, Your Holy Mind – the one that is one with God – no longer cared to listen to Him, and that willfulness seem to create a whole new teacher, which We have called the ego. It was a faulty choice, and that is where the correction must be made.
And yet, there is no need to look to the past. For We may start from the realization that there is no time, so now is always when it happens.
You must learn to take the past and bring it to the Now, for only Now can it be healed.
So let us speak Now, for a moment, of ex-spouses. For Sun~Rose You saw it yesterday in looking for something through old papers, things that were written before You had Your healing seemed to catapult You back into long past aggravation. A perfect example of what happens when You live in the past. You recreate a thing that never happened to begin with. And even if You do believe it happened, it’s not happening now; so just drop it!
And this is what You did yesterday, and it left You free until I mentioned it this morning. So You may see the supreme importance of dwelling in the Present.
How long will You let the Christ be hidden by these foolish ruminations about the past or future, those imaginary places are where the ego dwells? If You would be free You need to quit them. The Holy Spirit calls You gently saying: “Come be with Me Now My dearest Sisters and My dearest Brothers. Let Us be the Place of Love for everyone where We may dwell happily forever.”
“Not so!” The ego thunders. “All the wrongs against me must be righted, for God is useless when it comes to wreaking vengeance even though He promised to within the Bible. So I, the ego, will take up the great crusade. And We will change the statement to: “Vengeance is mine! Saith the ego.”
Oh yes, the ego is a tricky fellow. Listen to it, and You won’t feel mellow (guess who Guided Ogden Nash?).
So once again We come to My favorite dictum……
“Would You be this?” How often must I say it? For daily, moment by moment, do I but offer possibilities of the Holy Instant with the words You know so well: Brother, choose again. Sister, choose again, and this time choose God. You know, God has already chosen You. And who will march in His crusade, if it isn’t You?
When all Your days are given to the ego’s business, how is this to be done? Why, oh so simply, as You do whatever You are doing, Joined with Me as One.
For the moment that We Join now have You become as One with Holy Spirit, which is Your Right Mind as well as Mine; as You and I but do His bidding and Join with one another. And Us, together, We stand for unity and not for separation.
And in that stance – and in that willing stance – is open possibility for endless dreaming brothers. For minds are Joined, and so Your willingness radiates out to all the Universe.
And those already Joined rejoice at Your new connection – at Your new permanent connection – for sporadic does not get You in the Kingdom with the always frequency that’s needed.
You may think I’m asking way too much of You, and yet I’m not, unless You think that You could have too much of Heaven.
Trust Me sisters, trust Me brothers, Heaven is the one addiction that brings endless blessings. Could You be too happy? Could You have too much Peace? Could You but give and receive too much Love? Not when You once again remember what Love and Peace and Happiness are like as the Consciousness of Heaven.
And realize that You have spent endless dreams searching for Heaven’s Peace and Happiness and Love. For never have the ego versions (of happiness and peace and love) given any lasting satisfaction.
For nothing lasts within the dream but its pretense to mimic Heaven as You pass from dream to dream, that one attempt is constant.
Why would You settle with a useless substitute for Reality, when Heaven stands available to You? And not a heaven that You need to die to get to. For the Father’s Gifts to You are but Life, Truth and Love.
The two of You can surely see the vast importance of Joining, for there is nothing else that is so crucial. It is the one way to Awaken. For how else could You forgive the endless ‘crimes’ of the ego but in understanding that they are unreal. There is nothing going on while You go Your way alone and solitary, deep in ego dreams.
Existence only functions as a Whole. Not one thing that You think You’ve done alone has any meaning. So all the words that hve been spoken, and all the words that have been written, in this endless dreaming, if they were spoke and writ alone they are but gibberish that has not any meaning.
One gentle word or gentle touch, flowing from Our Union, can heal the Universe.
Do You understand how total is the commitment that I am demanding?
Now You need to implement it. And it is no task for You are not doing it alone.
Just reach out for Me and I will help You.
