While Walking To Release the Future I Had Several Revelations

Psst, do not criticize those who appear to talk to themselves, they may be the wisest among us because Divinity lies Within.

I found myself talking with insight as I was tending to my morning devotions and meditation by walking on the road around our high school track.

We show wisdom when we understand there is a Voice within us that does have great wisdom and comes directly from God. If there is falsehood it is mine, if there is truth it is God’s.

You have access to Him (the Holy Spirit) also and it is my hope and goal to help it become normal to see and hear about people listening to Him and sharing with us their insights.

Here are a few of mine:

It just may be our “DUTY” to release ourselves from our story. The story we have made up about ourselves and about the world we think we see around us.

I call it “His Story”, or the past. Meaning a story coming from the Universal Plan that the Son of God made during His brief belief in the ability for the Son of God to separate from God which I refer to in my 2019 release of Mama’s Christmas Carol, You Got the Power, Mom!.

I believe it to be a story that Christ devised to show what would happen IF He were to be separated from God. The Universal Plan encompasses all of it and with Jesus is its CEO and many other ascended masters they orchestrate time and space for the benefit for the Whole Son of God through the various stories of the individual parts of the Sonship.

This is about releasing your attachment to the story not about releasing your belief in your own existence which many have done through the misunderstood concept of Oneness or Wholeness.

We are told in the Course that Wholeness will not truly be understood until all have accepted the Atonement and let go of the belief in separation from God. Believers in Oneness believe that God somehow gets swallowed up by the Whole of the Son and I do not think that is logical or correct.

Giving up our personal stories will not be enough!

We must release ourselves from others' stories about us as well.

You know, all those labels as a kid, and from ignorant adults around us. But also from the stories our adult children, aging parents, co-workers, ex-spouses, and in-laws have of us.

You get the picture, from basically everyone.

Everyone except God who knows you are as He created you, and everyone, including Jesus, who accepts the Atonement that undoes (through forgiveness of a belief in the impossible) the belief in separation from God or one another.

We are not alone in this and it is something taught in the east for centuries.

It is what Jesus has done. He has not taken on the “stories” or “identity” that others gave him during his lifetime or the eons before or after. He has stability in knowing that he is as God created him as His Son, period.

Jesus does not accept the labels of wine-bibber (a drunk), a trouble-maker, and law-breaker. I do not have to accept labels about me either. No matter what the judgment of others may be.

Just because these stories are the glue that seems to hold our society together does not make it so!

Judgments on others set the boundaries and borders that we live in within in any human society or gathering. It affects us when we are alone as well.

This does NOT promote freedom but bondage.

The question is, do we want human acceptance or God’s?

God is not asking us to give up ourselves but what is false about ourselves.

And if God is our true creator do we not deny our own existence by denying Him in that role as the ONE who makes us ACCEPTABLE?

That is the paradigm shift that will change the world, in my opinion, because it makes us humble enough to listen to God’s Voice that is within each of us as the Holy Spirit.

You know that ladder that people in spiritual circles like to talk about? How in spiritual matters some people are higher or lower on a ladder? Well, that is bunk! We are all in exactly the same place. Jesus, even!

The only difference is that he has exercised his belief or faith in God and in his own existence more than we have.

This is a disruption that is only found within Time.

In our eternal state, we simply are our maximum greatest and are endowed with creative inclinations and abilities given to us by the Creator, Himself.

And we may join Jesus in his strength by having faith in his witness of God and the Atonement.

Jesus is more effective or has more conviction than we do. Not because he is different or better but because he chooses to exercise his awareness toward his divinity and relationship with God rather than his peers.

The human mentality that Jesus referred to as ego in A Course In Miracles wants to have a hierarchy. That is something that we need to erase from our thinking because within the Son of God there is no such thing.

Jesus used the ladder and vertical analogy to give us confidence in trusting him.

We ARE able to lean on his witness and strength as we get our spiritual “muscles” about us and remember we are God’s creation.

It need not be a thing of better than or an excuse for ego-mindedness, which is what we have when we believe we are our own creators.

The Holy Spirit and Jesus know that the Son of God is not capable of doing anything that does not bless and please the Father.

That is not a statement for a free-for-all among the human species, it is a witness that the Son of God does not seek to destroy itself on any level or sphere of awareness within the Atonement. Outside of it all kinds of stories and levels that appear illusive and untouchable are created.

I dare say that this message is true for all.

I know I feel it as a woman over 60 because accepting the labels others give you destroys your voice.

It becomes a socially accepted understanding.

We need to give all people a voice and respect it with no exceptions.

I personally believe that this alone would greatly alter our criminal behavior, mainly because people would be heard and could be helped before the tragedy rather than isolated or punished after.

When God looks at you He sees His Son. It is important that you understand this.

I gave birth to six children.. Each unique. Each cherished by me.

I think of them as my children, as one if you will, but they are individuals unique unto themselves and beautiful in their uniqueness.

I believe that this is how God sees us. As one, His Son, yet each unique and beautiful unto themselves.

I no longer accept the family linkage that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints promote. I do not believe that God removes any part of the Sonship for any reason. That is simply an error on the part of the Son which is corrected through the Atonement.

Truth applied without conviction is magic!

This kind of surprised me when I read it in ACIM materials but it makes sense.

The truth may be used by the ego to feed its story of guilt, punishment and ultimately death or the illusion thereof anyway.

This strikes me profoundly and is what I would describe the condition of the world with all toward the teachings of Jesus.

The conviction comes from having a witness of the Holy Spirit and His promptings and following them so that one gets confidence through this experience. This is what one experiences when the Atonement has been accepted.

It is obvious that the scribes and publishers of A Course In Miracles did not have that experience. And claims later in life or even after their deaths does not make it so.

The Song of Prayer is a good example of this where Christ is used when it is God that we want to look to for salvation, not ourselves who are the Christ.

I thank You, Father, knowing You will come to close each little gap that lies between the broken pieces of Your holy Son. ²Your Holiness, complete and perfect, lies in every one of them. ³And they are joined because what is in one is in them all. ⁴How holy is the smallest grain of sand, when it is recognized as being part of the completed picture of God’s Son! ⁵The forms the broken pieces seem to take mean nothing. ⁶For the whole is in each one. ⁷And every aspect of the Son of God is just the same as every other part.

(ACIM, T-28.IV.9:1–7)

I stand alone from the perspective of the world and humanity. I know this.

But in truth I stand with the Father and with Jesus through the Atonement and I am grateful for the witness that I have.

Till next time, God bless, bye for now.
