I thought someone on Medium might enjoy my ramblings to my ACIM group. ;) :D

Quantum contextuality rules out the idea that when you observe something in the world it is just the way it would have been had you not been there. This means that reality as we understand it is only our impression of our surroundings and maybe nothing more.

Could that be why Jesus says the world is an illusion in A Course In Miracles and maybe that is why we need to step into the mindset of the Atonement so that we can bring ourselves into a new reality with the assistance of God by way of the Holy Spirit?

The Atonement would knock the foundation of all of our present thinking completely off the spectrum while at the same time finally giving us the only true foundation we can stand on.

In so doing it would establish the rights and freedoms of ALL, including earth and all its parts and inhabitants. It would include all space, time, and dimensions as well.

If only in Time does one appear to win battles, it could be that Forgiveness of the belief in separation and its consequences is how we win the war that has never been. I am thinking maybe I am willing to forego the battles to win the war that never was.

It takes understanding the present moment and that there is only Now to enter the Atonement. Once there, we are guided by the Holy Spirit who sees all past and future within the illusion while directing us to our true state of Now which is everlasting life.

Would it not stand to reason that the Holy Spirit might show us both past and future within the illusion to assist us out of the confusion?

Could this be how we allow the Holy Spirit to be the judge and our guide in each circumstance or situation? That is, once we have accepted the Atonement (the undoing of separation) and allow the Inner Voice/Holy Spirit to guide us.

Would not, using tactics to overcome fear be making fear real, rather than the releasing of it which comes with the Forgiveness of the error of separation?

I appreciate discussion but I will not quarrel. I like to think that we all have the same desire here. To understand the meaning of Jesus’ words in ACIM so that suffering can be removed from humanity and healing might come to the earth and all of the Sonship of Christ.

I personally hold the idea that the physical world will exist for yet millions of years and that all physical matter that now believes that death is its end will come to understand that everlasting life is its creation and joy. I would like to be a part of that by bringing the peace that I have found within the Atonement to the earth.

The other morning I was walking on a gravel road just after sunrise and I spotted a pink twinkle. I had to back up and look at it again several times. For a bit, I thought maybe it was a sugar crystal from a piece of Trix cereal it was so florescent and disappeared when I approached it.

On further inspection, I discovered a small stone less than a dime in diameter and maybe a quarter of an inch deep that had some sort of crystal that put out that brilliant pink sparkle is only seen when the light struck it at a certain angle.

It made me think of walking with the guidance of the Spirit and how when we know ourselves to be Christ and worthy of Father’s assistance, He will show us things that are not obvious to us when He is not given our full attention. In that moment the sun’s rays seemed to be God sharing His Love and affection with me and reminding me to pay attention and trust His Love, affection, and attention towards me.

Much love and affection, till next time, God bless, bye for now.
