Salvation of the world depends on me.
Oh boy! This is too big a responsibility for Me! Surely someone else would be more able. A much better runner in the stable. I just don’t feel that I am capable!
Calm down Sisters, Brothers! The only need is that You be willing. The Holy Spirit gladly does the rest. You only need deliver the message. It’s just that simple. The people will not shoot this messenger! But rather thank Her so gratefully. Or Him, if a He.
1 Here is the statement that will one day take all arrogance away from every mind. Why?Willingness disperses arrogance. That is the reason. For willingness completes a job with ease. Here is the thought of true humility which holds no function as your own but that which has been given you. Here come those words again: “Thy Will be done.” And Your addition: “And I will gladly do it. Just Guide Me.” It offers your acceptance of a part assigned to you, without insisting on another role. For You need no glory in the job, no recompense but to see the job well done. You have done Your part, and that is enough. It does not judge your proper role. It but acknowledges the Will of God is done on earth as well as Heaven. For You are doing it at His behest, and very gladly. This gladness encourages Your Others. It unites all wills on earth in Heaven’s plan to save the world, restoring it to Heaven’s peace, because minds are joined.
2 Let us not fight our function. But, instead, We gratefully accept it. We did not establish it. It is not our idea. This sweet willingness easily eliminates the ego. It’s very freeing! The means are given us by which it will be perfectly accomplished. As usual, the key is Our trust in God for everything. All that we are asked to do is to accept our part in genuine humility and not deny with self-deceiving arrogance that we are worthy. We are being asked for a good reason. What is given us to do we have the strength to do. Our minds are suited perfectly to take the part assigned to us by One Who knows us well. Our belovèd Source: Our Father-Mother.
3 Today’s idea may seem quite sobering until you see its meaning. All it says is that your Father still remembers you and offers you the perfect trust He holds in you who are His Son. God does not see You ‘human’ but Divine. No ‘dirt man’ are You.1 It does not ask that you be different in any way from what you are. What could humility request but this? For what You are is God’s belovèd One, His most precious Son. And what could arrogance deny but this? Oh no You’re not, You say: I’m a human. Today we will not shrink from our assignment on the specious grounds that modesty is outraged. God says You’re Divine! It is pride that would deny the call of God Himself. And resistance to Your Divinity.
4 All false humility we lay aside today – We drop all that stuff, for it is pointless – that we may listen to God’s Voice reveal to us what He would have us do. False humility is but Your resistance to listening to God, and following His directions. We do not doubt our adequacy for the function He will offer us. Is not God the judge? We will be certain only that He knows our strengths, our wisdom, and our holiness. About Us, all the best. And if He deems us worthy, so we are. It is but arrogance that judges otherwise. Arrogance that believes it can put up resistance to God. How ridiculous!
5 There is one way and only one to be released from the imprisonment your plan to prove the false is true has brought to you. To dream and then accord reality to Your fitful dreams. Accept the plan you did not make instead. For God’s plan is Real, and it’s really good! Judge not your value to it. If God’s Voice assures you that salvation needs your part and that the whole depends on you, be sure that it is so, since the Voice for God is always truthful. The arrogant must cling to words, afraid to go beyond them to experience which might affront their stance. The arrogant are most attached to dreams. Yet are the humble free to hear the Voice which tells them what they are and what to do. For It will gladly lead them to freedom.
6 Arrogance makes an image of yourself that is not real, designed by the non-existent ego. It is this image – patently unreal – which quails and retreats in terror as the Voice for God assures you that you have the strength, the wisdom, and the holiness to go beyond all images. For they are not real. They cannot stop You! You are not weak, as is the image of yourself. You are not ignorant and helpless. Sin can not tarnish the truth in you, and misery can come not near the holy home of God. All the horrors of the world You see are but willfully deliberate dreams of non-existent ego.
7 All this the Voice for God relates to you. And as He speaks, the image trembles and seeks to attack the threat it does not know, sensing its basis crumble. It stands on nothing, having absolutely no foundation. Let it go. Salvation of the world depends on you and not upon this little pile of dust. For Son of God, none of You are bodies. What can it tell the holy Son of God? You are but the eternal Presence of Our Father-Mother. Why need he be concerned with it at all? Here and now, You far transcend the body. Be oh so grateful that this is the Truth!
8 And so we find our peace. By ditching the impostor for Our Reality instead. We will accept the function God has given us, for all illusions rest upon the weird belief that we can make another for ourselves. Another function, and another self, both unknown to God, Who nonetheless is gently healing Us; leading Us out of insanity, back into Our Right Minds. Our self-made roles are shifting, and they seem to change from mourner to ecstatic bliss of loved and loving. We can laugh or weep and greet the day with welcome or with tears. How very changeable is the ego. Our very being seems to change as we experience a thousand shifts in mood, and our emotions raise us high indeed or dash us to the ground in hopelessness.
This so-called ‘life’ is a roller-coaster. Yet Divine Consistency is but Your own Reality. Why not accept It?
9 Is this the Son of God? Could He – belovèd Father, belovèd Mother – create such instability and call it Son? He Who is changeless shares His attributes with His creation. Just as all the Rays are One with the Sun. All God’s Revelation makes up the Son. All the images His Son appears to make have no effect on what he is. They are delusions; misperceptions of God’s most holy One. They blow across his mind like windswept leaves that form a patterning an instant, break apart to group again, and scamper off. Or like mirages seen above a desert, rising from the dust. The entire dream is quite impermanent to say the least. Yet the Son relentlessly believes it, for He wants it so.
10 These unsubstantial images will go and leave your mind unclouded and serene when you accept the function given you. For all God’s Gifts must include clarity. The images you make give rise to but conflicting goals, impermanent and vague, uncertain and ambiguous. Yet You are truly committed to believing they are real. For on them Your entire world depends. Who could be constant in his efforts or direct his energies and concentrated drive toward goals like these? Those who are insane. The functions which the world esteems are so uncertain that they change ten times an hour at their most secure. What hope of gain can rest on goals like this? What kind of motive?
11 In lovely contrast, certain as the sun’s return each morning to dispel the night, your truly given function stands out clear and wholly unambiguous: Your Reality. There is no doubt of its validity. It comes from One Who knows no error. Perfect God must mean perfect You. And His Voice is certain of its messages. God is consistent and so reliable. They will not change nor be in conflict. All of them point to one goal, and one you can attain. Your plan may be impossible, but God’s can never fail because He is its Source. Remember, God is synonym with Good and reliable. This You must believe, and You will relax and give Him Your trust.
12 Do as His Voice directs. And if it asks a thing of you that seems impossible, remember Who it is that asks – Your loving Father – and who would make denial, the loveless ego. Then consider this—which is more likely to be right? Reality or imagination. The Voice that speaks for the Creator of all things Who knows all things exactly as they are, or a distorted image of yourself, confused, bewildered, inconsistent and unsure of everything? This is a description of the ego. Let not its voice direct you. Hear instead a certain Voice Which tells you of a function given you by your Creator, Who remembers you and urges that you now remember Him. All Your pain has come from forgetting God, for You are quite busy with the ego.
13 His gentle Voice is calling from the known to the unknowing. He knows all Your needs and would supply them. He would comfort you, although He knows no sorrow. He would make a restitution, though He is complete; a gift to you, although He knows that you have everything already. Put Your trust where it rightfully belongs! He has Thoughts which answer every need His Son perceives, although He sees them not. This is Love’s Nature. For Love must give, and what is given in His Name takes on the form most useful in a world of form. As the Bible promises: Before You call, I will answer.2 Your needs are known before You perceive them.
14 These are the forms which never can deceive, although they come from Formlessness Itself. So You can perceive what is imperceptible to ego. Forgiveness is an earthly form of love which as it is in Heaven has no form. Yet what is needed here is given here as it is needed. God fills all Your needs, despite Your beliefs. In this form, you can fulfill your function even here, although what love will mean to you when formlessness has been restored to you is greater still. God’s help is right here; God’s help is right now. Salvation of the world depends on you who can forgive. Such is your function here. That sure makes it clear.
1Reference in Genesis 2 to ‘man’ being made from the dirt; contrary to Genesis 1; two different authors.
2 Isaiah 65:24 (God’s telephone number!) “Before they call, I will answer.” “It will also come to pass that before they call, I will answer; and while they are still speaking, I will hear.”
