Who Would Have Thought It Could Be This Simple?
Jesus did. Let’s not complicate it as we have before!
Everything is happening all at once within the Mind of God. Time is currently outside that because of fear brought on by the belief in separation.
7. Eternity is one time, its only dimension being “always.” (ACIM, T-9.VI.7:1)
We think of time as linear. But really does it not make more sense that absolutely everything is going on at the same “time”???
That is how we can each be creative as God made us because we can only be what He is.
It is also how all that is not of God no longer exists in eternity.
Fear from the fall which began with a belief in the ability to be separated from God is what gives us a history of lack, terror, and all forms of abuse. As well as a future that seems fearful and unknown.
In truth, all is eternal. It may be difficult for the human mind to grasp but it is so.
You, as the Son of God and all your creations; and all of theirs, because God is God.
Now, lest you think that it is a perpetual nothingness consider this: perhaps what we consider seconds in linear time are simply different dimensions of the same time element, in other words, all things exist at the same time in different encapsulations known by all parts of the whole Son of God and the Creator; God, the Father. This is eternity.
How the world is doing is showing us how the Mind of Christ as a collective is doing. And your thoughts influence this.
Jesus says there is only one problem: Belief in Separation.
This is my take on A Course In Miracles Workbook Lesson 79:
Let me recognize the problem so it can be solved. (https://acim.org/acim/en/s/482 | W-79)
2. …(problems) must be recognized as one if the one solution that solves them all is to be accepted.
4. The temptation to regard problems as many is the temptation to keep the problem of separation unsolved.
6. ²If you could recognize that your only problem is separation, no matter what form it takes, you could accept the answer because you would see its relevance.
8. ³All that is necessary is to entertain some doubt about the reality of your version of what your problems are.
10. ³Let me recognize this problem so it can be solved. ⁴Then try to suspend all judgment about what the problem is.
We are one whole, right?
So if one person can solve one problem correctly it would seem that the whole would be repaired.
Then again, Jesus said it already has been repaired so that leaves it to each of us to open our eyes and see that it is so.
We do this through the Atonement.
We could spend our lives thinking this lesson means that we are to take each problem that comes at us and correct it but I do not see it like that.
I see that we are being asked to see the correction of the whole that is already complete and the only way to see this is with the principles taught in the Atonement.
1. See only Christ in all of creation.
2. See a mistake of belief in separation.
3. Forgive the mistake and all of its consequences.
That is the simple “formula” that we each have to “swallow.”
The way I see it is that we each have a responsibility for saving the world and every moment we delay brings pain, suffering, and heartache that is NOT NECESSARY.
We ARE ABLE to do something about the state of the world and it costs us nothing.
The Atonement aligns us into one world with diverse parts.
That means that from within the mindset of the Atonement (described in the formula in the section above) we are functioning from the same platform of understanding.
This would have nothing to do with ideologies, religion, or ways to describe and experience the unlimited worlds that we have among us. It would simply align us with the Creator and our power as well as one another so that there would be a connection of energy/thought and experience in a way, this means we would “know” or “feel” one another, even if we were in a different dimension.
And yes, I am getting ahead of myself here because while Time has been released already there are those who are not aware of it. And until EACH of us accepts the Atonement time will be.
Even so, the Atonement does give everyone who participates in it an equal platform because it acknowledges God IS and the Son is one whole made up of many vital and significant parts directed, while in Time, by the Holy Spirit.
Use the things that you are learning in life to put a different perspective on old and stagnant issues.
That is what I did, folks.
And it wraps up this way:
Separation is the source of ALL problems.
123 (see the formula above) Atonement is the only solution to separation.
Linear time will then be destroyed and we will see ourselves as a whole in its multiple forms and expressions within the Mind and Will of God.
Alterations of existence will be witnessed compared to Time because death, guilt, and suffering will have no place there.
Creation will continue indefinitely within the Mind of God where all things are of His Will and are eternal.
Sounds pretty darn exciting to me! I am looking forward to the ride!
Till next time, God bless, bye for now.
