“The ego uses the body for attack, for pleasure, and for pride. The insanity of this perception makes it a fearful one. The Holy Spirit sees it only as a means of communication. And because communicating is sharing, it becomes communion.” – http://courseinmiracles.com/chapter-6/to-have-give-all-to-all/ ACIM (and all quotes in this blog are from this peace)
Seeing my move into a community of mighty companions, as communion. I have only ‘lived’, so that I may see the end of ‘my separation’. And this sounds like true insanity. My beLIEf in the world has kept me separate. All illusions must be undone. And this illusion of ‘taking care of my self’ is a doozie. The idea of ‘If I don’t take care of myself’, I will disappear while dying a hideous death, to be reborn to it all over again. Fear of being alone and completely forgotten in the illusion of form is far from my worst fear. My Fear of not waking up.
We are being asked to Heal. Heal Our Minds of all our ideas. That there is ANY safety in our thoughts is INSANE. There is NONE. No Exceptions. If I hold on to any thought of safety, or protection in a world of insane ideas, I remain insane.
So the sale of a house. It is a building of brick and mortor. Each molecule of this building is an idea of safety. Each molecule is insane. None of it real. Leaving a home is an idea of the insane. For none of this is Home. No matter how I label it.
My Home is Within. And from Here, I Join With Mightie Companions.
“There is no world! This is the central thought the course attempts to teach. Not everyone is ready to accept it, and each one must go as far as he can let himself be led along the road to truth. He will return and go still farther, or perhaps step back a while and then return again. But healing is the gift of those who are prepared to learn there is no world, and can accept the lesson now. Their readiness will bring the lesson to them in some form which they can understand and recognize.”
The form I am now releasing, is the sale of a house, in a community that I believed was my home. I had flesh and blood, friends and animals. I projected my happiness in them. I looked to them for my Joy. So in questioning all of this, I am seeing all the fear, guilt, shame in what I am truly here to do and to be. Let go of all of it… or none… and only in one does Salvation and True Peace come.
“Here is the answer to every problem that confronts you today and tomorrow and throughout time. In this world, you believe you are sustained by everything BUT God. Your faith is placed in the most trivial and insane symbols; pills, money, “protective” clothing, “influence,” “prestige,” being liked, knowing the “right” people, and an endless list of forms of nothingness which you endow with magical powers. All these things are your replacements for the Love of God. All these things are cherished to ensure a body identification. They are songs of praise to the ego.”
I Joined a ‘new’ community of others committed to Seeing it all differently, to address each and every beLIEf since the beginning of time. To unravel the insanity of my thoughts. It is an all or nothing journey. And I get the ‘be gentle part’. And after projecting all the madness that I have: power (fear of not having it or loosing it), money (greed is fear of not having enough or fear of loosing what I have), illness (fear of having it or fear of getting it), war (fear of it happening or fighting against it), famine (fear of loosing sustenance or not getting sustenance), death (final fear)… I am ready to be at Peace. I will not settle for the ego’s idea of intermittent happy. Intermittant Peace… intermittent Joy. I want it all… and to have all, I Must commit to all. Letting go of all my struggles. I COMMIT TO THE PEACE OF GOD! (period)
“Put not your faith in illusions. They will fail you. Put all your faith in the Love of God within you, eternal, changeless and forever unfailing. This is the answer to whatever confronts you today. Through the Love of God in you, you can resolve all seeming difficulties without effort and in sure confidence. Tell yourself this often today. It is a declaration of release from the belief in idols.”
I vow to Receive all the Love that I Am. And in this process, release all ideas of who I am not. For salvation lies in living this completely, or not at all.
“Let no idle and foolish thoughts enter to disturb the holy mind of the Son of God. Such is the Kingdom of Heaven”.
