Atonement… a few thoughts…

Atonement is the correction for a ‘lack of love’… whether I find it in ‘me’, ‘you’, or ‘something’..  Atonement describes how human beings can become aligned with God (Love).  In Christianity, this has been related to Seeing Jesus as having ‘died’, resulting in the ‘Pardoning of all sin’ for All.  Yet… we continue to judge (see sin)… this is where Jesus teaches us ‘mind control’ as written in a Course in Miracles.

images-9All the sacrifices through out time have been ‘given to a god’… These are always offered in some way to forgive ‘human sinning’… WOW… no wonder ‘we are screwed’…We forgot… Jesus handled this… We are Sinnless… No Exceptions…

ACIM is very Clear… God is Love… and ‘We’ (humans) are ‘Sinless’, No Exceptions… so this automatically puts all ‘religious dogma’ in the compost pile…

Given this distinction… Atonement moves me from ‘being scared as a sinner’ (which requires I slaughter or suffer something and give to God, to ‘pay for my sins’) , … to a ‘Heavenly Experience’… “I forgot… I am One With God”… no sacrifices are ever required or warranted… only for ‘me’ to See differently… silly little human that I appear to be… forgot I Am Love… (again)…. LOLOLO

I have heard ‘students/teachers refer ‘atonement’ as ‘Being One With God’. I would like to take this a bit further… “Accepting Atonement” is an action… not ‘to do’ something… actually… ‘to Be’ something…

In the face of ‘suffering or sacrifice’ (fear)… I need to be come Willing… to See Differently… so instead of ‘killing you off’ (sacrifice… I kill you to save ‘me’… LOLOLOLO), I ‘Clear ‘my’ self’…WITH GOD…  I Be come Willing to ‘forgive my self for attempting to kill you off’… (Forgiveness according to acim… very different from traditionally held ‘forgiveness’). Since ‘this’ is ‘my dream’… I take complete responsibility for how I react to ‘my dream’… My visual of this is… I ‘blame you’… while ‘slapping me’… example… ‘this world sucks’…so ‘I create cancer in my form’… makes sense to the truly insane…

‘Forgiveness’ has to come from within… When I stop ‘blaming’… and Own All of it… I stop ‘beating my self up’… My version of ‘beating myself up’ was to project ‘cancer’ as the counter to ‘my fear of a world without peace’… total ‘self abuse’… I created cancer as a way to ‘punish my self’.  I Held shame at not being able to ‘create sustainable peace in the world out there’… holding shame creates things like head colds and cancer and all things ‘suffering’……

The world occurred as an ‘unfair’ place… a dangerous place… an angry place… these were my projections outward… ( Be cause the world appeared unfair and angry… (my projection)…  I felt the need to fight for peace (ego solution)..

And without ‘years of processing’… I was able to See the ‘insane thinking’… and start the process of ‘forgiving my self’… For Everything!

I took each little fear (anger, desire, self criticism, resentment, disagreement are all forms of fear) and went to God… in each little ‘thought moment’… I would ‘catch’ an ‘icky thought’… and go to God for ‘re-thinking with Love’… and usually this takes all of a few seconds in ‘dream time’…

I just need to take a moment… are you Laughing ??? really… The insanity of ‘my mind’… knows no limits… I would rather kill you off which is killing my self off… then  to accept ‘I Am Love and just forgot’…wow… is there Any question as to why ‘we project wars and the Need for defense’… geez… I so See my self as the solution for All… and with this… an Enormous sense of Freedom…

So acim suggests that we get very much in the ‘now moment’.. and from here… we can become willing to accept the Atonement. For in this one moment is the only possibility for Joining With God… in this One Thought… Holy Spirit… God… Help me to See Our Innocence.

If I am having an ‘icky feeling’… OR if you are having an ‘icky feeling’… (you are my projection, I Clear Every Thing I experience)… ‘We’ will either be Joinng in Heaven or Hell… We are Saved Together or Suffer Together… just ‘my choice’.

So acim’s suggestion for atonement… be come One With God for a moment. I like to remind folks of Echart Tolle’s The Power of Now… This is what He was referring to… the Power of Now is This One Moment in which I Can accept the Love Of God, rather than the other ‘suffering’ ideas ‘I’ can come up with… lolo… like cancer and forclosures…

the-shawshank-redemptionAccepting the Atonement is to Really Hold the idea that We SEE Only This Moment… and from Here… We Are Sinnless and Innocent. AND… if in ‘this moment’… I am making any wrong (my self or others (example: depression, anger, self-criticism, ect)… I Choose to See Only Love for this One Moment.

Here is the Peace of God… The Greater Joining…no sacrifices Ever required or desired… Getting into Heaven is FREE and Immediate… just need to ‘manage my thinking’…

So Accepting the Atonement… is to Hold My Self as Whole and Complete as God Is… for One Moment… and Living from this One Moment is Very Doable!…

Now my small egoic mind would like me to beLIEve that if I don’t plan for the future I will suffer and die… and the TRUTH… there is Only this One Moment… and at some Moment… when I choose to Stop All Suffering Thoughts… I ‘disappear the dream’…

For ‘my process’ with all of it… I Practice A lot… I feel as if I am in the Awakening Olympics… Practice, Practice, Practice… until I completely get… I Am the Gold!!!

For All My Fellow Projected Olympians… We are Gold and just forgot… Let us just practice to gather for this One Moment… God is Love… and so Am I…

Ho!
