We Need To Show the World Its Negativity Has No Effect On Our Eternal Being

It is the only way to turn the world upside down!

Post-traumatic separation disorder (PTSpD), is a phrase I coined to speak of what we do to ourselves as we lay half-truths and falsehoods on our personal identity within the world.

Depression is the first thing that comes to mind and all its many faces. It would also include the addictions and power-hunger that the world’s propaganda promotes.

All the groups, organizations, and hats we wear only confirm the lies and our separation from one another and from God.

Bear in mind that these come from the ego’s falsehoods applied over millennia and it is removable through the Atonement of Christ as taught by Jesus in ACIM.

The Atonement is the undoing forgiveness of the original error that we all as Christ had that separation from God was possible and forgiveness of all the results of that error which would include much of what happens while Time (IE. Past and Future) exists, acknowledgment of our unity, and our individual connection to God via the Holy Spirit. (Bear in mind that love, and God’s influence, are here, at least at a minimum or there would be no hope at all. Which is impossible because God is the Father of all that is.)

This gives us the Holy Instant that ends Time and brings eternity into the present. It creates an entirely different way of life.

In my book, Mama’s Christmas Carol, I identified gossip as an issue to be looked at. Today, I look at human interactions and reflect on them at large:

When I was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints I was a Visiting Teacher as a female and each family had Home Teachers from the priesthood. These were people who looked after us and checked in on us to see if there were needs and would report back to the Bishop.

It kind of gives me the creeps today. I can see the lack of trust and responsibility of the individual. The idea of the power that we turned over to someone besides God just astounds me.

I am so grateful to know this is only a Dream because if it were life it truly would be unbearable.

I have been out of that environment for at least six years now.

I have neighbors that I had tried to mingle with. For one thing, I can see through their filters and see the disguises they wear to hide who they truly are and it has taken me some time to be willing to put up strong and healthy boundaries so that I am safe to exist according to my own conscience and not the traditions and opinions of others.

What can I say about gossip today? Be careful who you speak to and know that everyone does have a secret world and their own agenda. That is just the way it is.

Listening to the promptings of the Holy Spirit is what is important here. And seek to do no harm, knowing that you walk a path of forgiveness. In fact, you might think of the forgiveness of the Atonement as the light in the world and the path that reunites us with our companionship one with another within the Mind of God.

God will force no one to let go of fear and see Him.

He will send His Messengers to light the way by living the truth which will call to the hearts of each one of us.

We are His and nothing will alter that.

Time. I made a wonderful discovery about time this week:

Time is removed in the miracle of the Holy Instant where we “see” all that is as it was created by God and not by the ego.

These flashes of revelation or “revealing” can become the norm at which time Time is gone and eternity stands in its place.

To know that we are eternal beings not bound by flesh and bone, made up by the thought of the Father’s desire for a Son is pretty powerful. And that the world we see is the formation of ideas that we as the Sonship visualized our existence without the presence of the Father could be thinking erroneously that we had left Him.

This is why the miracle (Holy Instant) is needed to restore humanity to its awareness of God and the awareness of our perfection as Him creation.

This frees us to be individuals with abundance and all that the Father has, even as Jesus has declared.

Things are not at all as they seem to be.

Till next time, God bless, debi.
