“You will encounter Truth or illusion and nothing else for there is nothing else.” …ACOL
Most of us don’t see it, believe it, nor accept it, but there are two worlds existing side by side which are available for our recognition and observance. We cannot see nor recognize both at the same time, we see either one or the other – but not both.
Both of these worlds are observed in our minds first, and then either extended or projected outward. In other words, what we observe as the outer world is simply an extension or a projection of that which we observe within. Thoughts of LOVE are extended to everyone and everything. Fearful thoughts are projected to everyone and everything. By this process the world we see is made, whether it’s a world of LOVE or one of fear.
One is these worlds is false, or in other words it’s not real, it’s an illusion, which is the one most humans believe they spend their lives in. This is the one that’s made up of projected thoughts of fear. The Course of Love refers to this one as, “the house of illusions.”
The other one is the world of Truth, and is the only real one. This one is a reflection of extended LOVE thoughts, and is the one we find the most difficult to observe or recognize. The Course of Love refers to this one as, “The House of Truth.”
“There is no love but God’s, and all of love is His.” …ACIM
Every being that God created was created as LOVE from LOVE and by LOVE. Therefore, LOVE is the true nature of every living thing.
The original intent of our sojourn into physicality was to express our true nature of LOVE in observable form. This original form was not anything like the form (body) we experience now.
It’s not difficult to realize that something has gone wrong, and it’s also not difficult to decipher what that something is. The original purpose of expressing LOVE in observable form could only be accomplished by remaining in a relationship with God, the only LOVE there is.
But, somewhere along the way, so to speak, we deviated from our purpose and chose to separate ourselves from our relationship with our Father and His LOVE. Once we made this choice we then forgot where we were, why we were there, where we were going, and most importantly, who we are. By forgetting our relationship with our Father and His LOVE we have allowed its opposite, which is fear, to take control of what we now express in form.
“Fear is thus the source of all illusion, love the source of truth.” …ACOL
Forgetfulness does not take away our power of creation. That is an attribute inherent within us as Part of God. But when this inherent power is used separated from its true Source, which is LOVE, it then makes illusions whose source is fear.
Instead of expressing LOVE in observable form we began doing just the opposite and projecting fear-based thoughts as illusions.
“You are as God created you.” …ACIM
The above quote is from The Course, and it’s either true or it’s false, it cannot be anything other than that. Let us contemplate for a moment upon the depths of what it’s telling us if it’s true — If I didn’t believe it to be absolutely and wholeheartedly true you wouldn’t be reading this Post for I would not have written it.
If you are as God created you then does not reason itself tell you that you cannot be anything other than healthy, wealthy, wise and happy as you can be?
God does not create anything that is not exactly like Himself. He is LOVE and everything He creates is a part of Him. Therefore, You were created from LOVE as LOVE and you will never be anything else but LOVE, regardless of what you believe about yourself. — You are, and will always be as God Created you!
“As you once chose separation you can now choose unity.” …ACOL
In my last post I used a quote by the great motivational author and founder of Hay House, Louise Hay. In her quote she implied that if we want to express the Truth of what we are (Light and Spirit. Wonderful capable beings) it’s time to change our minds. In other words it’s time to make a new choice.
One of the first choices we need to make is not to continue on with the old way of expressing ourselves through separation. Expressing through separation is expressing through fear. It is the path used by the ego to project all the negativity we observe in the world.
As long as we continue expressing the separated and false self we have convinced ourselves we are we will continue to experience all the negativity the ego is capable of projecting.
“Your Body does not Contain You” …ACOL
If we are to ever live our lives in a state of health, abundance, joy, and freedom from worry then there will come a time when those who are ready to listen will hear the truth about themselves. The truth is, the body you believe and accept as you is not you, as the above quote verifies; your body does not contain you.
Your body is a representation of your beliefs about yourself. If you hold to the belief that it is you, then you’re holding to the belief that you are alone and separated from God and everything in the universe. This belief creates fear and is the source of all the negative conditions you see represented in your body, and through projection, the world around you.
Accepting what God created or what you have made
My opening quote says: You will encounter Truth or illusion and nothing else for there is nothing else. It’s the only choice available to you, there is no other even though in illusion there seems to be an unlimited number.
The conditions of your body and the world you see are dependent upon your choice in something I’ve mentioned quite often throughout this site. It’s this quote from A Course in Miracles: “You see the flesh or recognize the Spirit.” If you recognize the Spirit you will encounter Truth. If you see the flesh, you will encounter illusions.
The Course goes on to say, “What you decide in this determines all you see and think is real and hold as true. On this one choice does all your world depend, for here have you established what you are, as flesh or Spirit in your own belief.”
I’m going to close this post with a quote from one of my favorite writers, Richard Bach. He said, “There is such a thing as perfection…and our purpose for living is to find that perfection and show it forth….Each of us is in truth an unlimited idea of freedom. Everything that limits us we have to put aside.”
“Identify with love, and you are safe. Identify with love, and you are home. Identify with love, and find your Self.” …ACIM
