Say Goodbye 2 da’ gargantuan God

To Believe…

To believe is to know that every day
is a new beginning.
It is to trust that miracles happen,
and dreams really do come true.
To believe is to see angels dancing among the clouds,
To know the wonder of a stardust sky
and the wisdom of the man in the moon.
To believe is to know the value of a nurturing heart,
The innocence of a child’s eyes
and the beauty of an aging hand,
for it is through their teachings we learn to love.

Q
To believe is to find the strength
and courage that lies within us.
When it is time to pick up the pieces and begin again.
To believe is to know we are not alone,
That life is a gift and this is our time to cherish it.
To believe is to know that wonderful surprises
are just waiting to happen,
And all our hopes and dreams are within reach.
If only we believe…..Dats my belief anyhew…..So ? is ?

What do you associate with the word “God”?….Since the brain functions spatially, most of us cannot help but visualizing some kind of image. And more often than not, this image is sort of hominoid. For several millennia, God has been pictured as a giant omnipotent king who perceives and judges every single act in the universe. The French philosopher Voltaire once remarked: “God made man in his own image, and man returned the favor.” Even if you don’t picture something anthropomorphic, there’s still bound to be some cosmic image of stars or light. In A Course in Miracles, Jesus tells us that “You cannot even think of God without a body, or in some form you think you recognize.”Acim text… (T-18.VIII.1: 7)..This need to visualize something externally is the problem, Jesus would say. By attempting to construe any image of God, we are really attempting to bring God into this illusory world of time and space. This is not the way to reach God. The metaphysical foundation of A Course in Miracles is that nonduality (“not-two”) is the only reality. Everything we perceive in time and space is an illusion the seemingly sleeping Son of God made up as a means to hide from a perceived vengeful Creator, intent on punishing us for our savage sin of leaving Him. To be sure, even in A Course in Miracles God is often depicted as some being Who is “lonely without His children” (T-2.III.5:11) , Who gives us the Holy Spirit to bring us back Home (T-5.II.2:5) , and Who even has tear ducts since He apparently weeps for His children Acim text..(T-5.VII.4:5)….However, as Kenneth Wapnick remarked, this must be seen as the pedagogical wisdom of Jesus, who needs to meet his students where they believe they are, that is, in the world of time and space. To motivate us, Jesus needs to use the language that we are capable of understanding now. As we progress, we will be able to understand truth more and more: “A miracle (i.e., an expression of love) […] must be expressed in a language that the recipient can understand without fear. This does not necessarily mean that this is the highest level of communication of which he is capable. It does mean, however, that it is the highest level of communication of which he is capable now.” (T-2.IV.5:3) So Jesus uses symbols and metaphors that we can recognize in our current state of mind. It would be a mistake, however, to take these symbols as literal truth only because of our mind conditioning of the past millennia….   

  So what is God, then??? and why would we make a punishing image of our Creator if we profess that we love Him? Well, to answer the first question, we are invited in A Course in Miracles to accept an entirely different image of our own self. The one-line summary of this message is: “God is but love, and therefore so am I.” (cf. W-pI.177) In chapter 28 we read: “This world was over long ago. The thoughts that made it are no longer in the mind that thought of them and loved them for a little while.” (T-28.I.1:6) . Although our brains cannot really picture a state without form or concept, this is exactly Jesus’ message: you and I are a holographic part of the same pure spirit that abides eternally and changelessly in God, who is literally love, and only love. The world you and I think we can achieve meaningful things in such as saving the climate, is only an “afterimage” (Ken Wapnick’s term) of the time-space dream that is already over. Once we embrace our true Identity as spirit of pure Love, this entire dream world of time and space will simply vanish, forever to be forgotten in eternity, since it never really existed anyway…..

Many can at least intellectually follow such reasoning to some degree, especially if you’re into spirituality or quantum physics! although??? At the same time, this is the source of our deepest fear: to disappear entirely as an individual. “You think you would be helpless in God’s Presence, and you would save yourself from His Love because you think it would crush you into nothingness. You are afraid it would sweep you away from yourself and make you little. … You think you have made a world God would destroy; and by loving Him, which you do, you would throw this world away, which you would. … And it is this that frightens you.“ (T-13.III.4: 1) I know I often quote this line, and I think it cannot be repeated too often. It is this realization that our ego feverishly attempts to hide from the mind, for this heralds the end of the ego itself, with which we identify so fervently..

So furthermore i would say!……The ego part of our mind obviously shrieks that a state of pure spirit without time and space is preposterous. And we should never underestimate the vicious cleverness of the ego. After all, the ego reasons: “Isn’t it foolhardy to be in denial of the pain you constantly experience within you and without you? You can paint pink scenes of blissfulness, but in the end you inevitably deteriorate and die. Oh, and before that, you’re gonna experience a load of loneliness, doubts and fears, no matter how diligently you try to hide your head in the sand. And this ‘God’ of yours won’t help you here. He’ll judge you when you die, but don’t expect any salvation from him. Ha!” Indeed, as long as we identify with our body, this seems a veritable description of life. However, once we experience the inner peace of our expressions of love (i..e, miracles), we’ll have more and more moments in which we realize that we are not a body. We are spirit. “God is but love, and therefore so am I.

Werd fer an 2 da’ wise!!!!

Try to lighten the load in your mind about all the little worries in your life. It doesn’t matter if you are delayed in a traffic jam. It doesn’t matter if people seem to treat you unfairly. It doesn’t matter if the stock market plummets. It doesn’t matter if your partner leaves you. It doesn’t matter that your body decays and dies. You’ve probably gone through hundreds or thousands of lives (incarnations) of such fleeting, changing experiences. None of these matter for salvation. What matters is forgiveness — of your brother, and therefore ultimately of yourself, since everything around you is a projection of a part of you. Realize that you experience yourself in this world, but you are not of it. Learn to forgive where you used to condemn. Become a happy learner of the Holy Spirit, and you’ll experience the reflection of God’s law of love in this world. “The teachers of God have trust in the world, because they have learned it is not governed by the laws the world made up. It is governed by a power that is in them but not of them.” (M-4.I.1:4). This is the power of Love (= God = nonduality), in which you and I are already at Home, even though we are usually not aware of that.

Accept the help of the Holy Spirit to make you fully aware of this shabby substitute for Love that we made, and allow him to change his mind for you. God (= Love) will dawn on your mind. At the end of your journey of awakening, Jesus assures us that “Together we will disappear into the Presence beyond the veil, not to be lost but found; not to be seen, but known” (T-19.IV-D.19: 1). Please do take your time for this learning process. Patience is an important characteristic of a teacher of God. As we read in lesson 184: “It would indeed be strange if you were asked to go beyond all symbols of the world, forgetting them forever; yet were asked to take a teaching function. You have need to use the symbols of the world a while. But be you not deceived by them as well. They do not stand for anything at all, and in your practicing it is this thought that will release you from them. They become but means by which you can communicate in ways the world can understand, but which you recognize is not the unity where true communication can be found.

*

     Thus what you need are intervals each day in which the learning of the world becomes a transitory phase; a prison house from which you go into the sunlight and forget the darkness. Here you understand the Word, the Name which God has given you; the one Identity which all things share; the one acknowledgment of what is true. And then step back to darkness, not because you think it real, but only to proclaim its unreality in terms which still have meaning in the world that darkness rules. Use all the little names and symbols which delineate the world of darkness. Yet accept them not as your reality. The Holy Spirit uses all of them, but He does not forget creation has one Name, one meaning, and a single Source which unifies all things within Itself. Use all the names the world bestows on them but for convenience, yet do not forget they share the Name of God along with you. God has no name. And yet His Name (i.e., expressing Love) becomes the final lesson that all things are one, and at this lesson does all learning end.” (W-pI.184)

*

    The real truth bout it though! is. IN God’s werld….. Apparently humankind arrived in the last minute of that day, and the planet is 4.54 billion years old…Imagine DAT!..

..So well it’s been a long day lol…..@ so july will be a hot long month so.get over it lol!!!!!!

Quark’s 2 Cents Werth Concerning Miracles

A few THOUGHTZ fer da’ day an a few links also 🙂 … frum Quarksire on account of ACIM a course in miracles….a place where i go when i can’t sleep!

*************************

When I see the world as a place of freedom, I realize that it reflects the laws of God (good orderly direction) instead of the rules I made up for it to obey. I will understand that peace, not war, abides in it. And I will perceive that peace also abides in the hearts of all who share this place with me.
~~~
(35) My mind is part of God’s. I am very holy.

My holiness envelops everything I see.
~~~
From my holiness does the perception of the real world come. Having forgiven, I no longer see myself as guilty. I can accept the innocence that is the truth about me. Seen through understanding eyes, the holiness of the world is all I see, for I can picture only the thoughts I hold about myself.
~~~
(37) My holiness blesses the world.
~~~
The perception of my holiness does not bless me alone. Everyone and everything I see in its light shares in the joy it brings to me. There is nothing that is apart from this joy, because there is nothing that does not share my holiness. As I recognize my holiness, so does the holiness of the world shine forth for everyone to see.
~~~
(38) There is nothing my holiness cannot do.
My holiness is unlimited in its power to heal, because it is unlimited in its power to save. What is there to be saved from except illusions? And what are all illusions except false ideas about myself? My holiness undoes them all by asserting the truth about me. In the presence of my holiness, which I share with God Himself, all idols vanish.
~~~
(39) My holiness is my salvation.
~~~
Since my holiness saves me from all guilt, recognizing my holiness is recognizing my salvation. It is also recognizing the salvation of the world. Once I have accepted my holiness, nothing can make me afraid. And because I am unafraid, everyone must share in my understanding, which is the gift of God to me and to the world.
~~~
(40) I am blessed as a Son of God.
~~~
Herein lies my claim to all good and only good. I am blessed as a Son of God. All good things are mine, because God intended them for me. I cannot suffer any loss or deprivation or pain because of Who I am. My Father supports me, protects me, and directs me in all things. His care for me is infinite, and is with me forever. I am eternally blessed as His Son.

The following ideas are for review today:
~~~
(41) God goes with me wherever I go.
~~~
How can I be alone when God always goes with me? How can I be doubtful and unsure of myself when perfect certainty abides in Him? How can I be disturbed by anything when He rests in me in absolute peace? How can I suffer when love and joy surround me through Him? Let me not cherish illusions about myself. I am perfect because God goes with me wherever I go.
~~~
(42) God is my strength. Vision is His gift.
~~~
Let me not look to my own eyes to see today. Let me be willing to exchange my pitiful illusion of seeing for the vision that is given by God. Christ’s vision is His gift, and He has given it to me. Let me call upon this gift today, so that this day may help me to understand eternity.
~~~
(43) God is my Source. I cannot see apart from Him.
~~~
I can see what God wants me to see. I cannot see anything else. Beyond His Will lie only illusions. It is these I choose when I think I can see apart from Him. It is these I choose when I try to see through the body’s eyes. Yet the vision of Christ has been given me to replace them. It is through this vision that I choose to see.
~~~
(44) God is the light in which I see.
~~~
I cannot see in darkness. God is the only light. Therefore, if I am to see, it must be through Him. I have tried to define what seeing is, and I have been wrong. Now it is given me to understand that God is the light in which I see. Let me welcome vision and the happy world it will show me.
~~~
(45) God is the Mind with which I think.
~~~
I have no thoughts I do not share with God. I have no thoughts apart from Him, because I have no mind apart from His. As part of His Mind, my thoughts are His and His Thoughts are mine.
~~~

A Momma's View

… but not everybody lives! Do you truly live your life or are just floating along? Ask yourself that question. If you can’t answer it immediately with “yes, I do live my life” then it’s time to change something!

I know that there are some parts of our life that we would rather not go through, stuff that we would rather not do. And yet they are necessary or they simply have to be done. But there’s plenty of time on the side to make your life worth living. So do it! Don’t wait! Don’t find excuses!

Cherokee/Irish Blessingz

crowbirdFrom a day of hurting ( i crashed friday and dislocated my shoulder:( to a weekend of recovery to a night of wunder,
For today i have to thank for my healing
” cherokee blessingz”
an da song cherokee woman goes round an round in me head 🙂
Ever since my loving friend and healer “Crow” whom has passed away to the other side now has been gone, i kinna knew he was sending me my lessons and aquantainces and miracles and friends in my life, that were somehow related to the tribal culture an music etc etc…So as Crow used to tell me, life is really to short mikey to allow urself to be abused by others who do not appreciate u or ur life etc etc… release urself from those whom carry the burden of the werld on their shoulders with false flag resentments and fears and allow the holy spirit to connect ya with the ones that are meant to be with ya!,,so is hard advice but many years laterz now i have taken it and well, was the best advice i could ever get, to get out of the way of my own destiny and allow the world i wish for to grow around and come to me the way i wish it to…
So, that it is happening “One Day at a Time now again. More Cherokee Blessings.

Victimship Denied

 This post is not in support of any religion or Christian viewpoint or outlewk,

it is to attempt to help clarify what they say they thought he said.

There fore today – I am not a victim of the world i see!

Image

“Today we will review the following:”
We see here a direct connection pointed out to us between our thoughts and the world, even though Christ has made this connection before: Quark here is posting 3 lessons at once because it has taken me a week to absorb the thought processes involved in these 3 lessons;

Lessons 57-58 an 59

Lesson 57
***
Today let us review these ideas:
***
(31) I am not the victim of the world I see.
~~~
How can I be the victim of a world that can be completely undone if I so choose? My chains are loosened. I can drop them off merely by desiring to do so. The prison door is open. I can leave simply by walking out. Nothing holds me in this world. Only my wish to stay keeps me a prisoner. I would give up my insane wishes and walk into the sunlight at last.
~~~
(32) I have invented the world I see.
~~~
I made up the prison in which I see myself. All I need do is recognize this and I am free. I have deluded myself into believing it is possible to imprison the Son of God. I was bitterly mistaken in this belief, which I no longer want. The Son of God must be forever free. He is as God created him, and not what I would make of him. He is where God would have him be, and not where I thought to hold him prisoner.
~~~
(33) There is another way of looking at the world.
~~~
Since the purpose of the world is not the one I ascribed to it, there must be another way of looking at it. I see everything upside down, and my thoughts are the opposite of truth. I see the world as a prison for God’s Son. It must be, then, that the world is really a place where he can be set free. I would look upon the world as it is, and see it as a place where the Son of God finds his freedom.
~~~
(34) I could see peace instead of this.
~~~
When I see the world as a place of freedom, I realize that it reflects the laws of God instead of the rules I made up for it to obey. I will understand that peace, not war, abides in it. And I will perceive that peace also abides in the hearts of all who share this place with me.
~~~
(35) My mind is part of God’s. I am very holy.
~~~
As I share the peace of the world with my brothers, I begin to understand that this peace comes from deep within myself. The world I look upon has taken on the light of my forgiveness, and shines forgiveness back at me. In this light I begin to see what my illusions about myself kept hidden. I begin to understand the holiness of all living things, including myself, and their oneness with me.
~~~
Lesson 58
~~~
These ideas are for review today:
~~~
(36) My holiness envelops everything I see.
~~~
From my holiness does the perception of the real world come. Having forgiven, I no longer see myself as guilty. I can accept the innocence that is the truth about me. Seen through understanding eyes, the holiness of the world is all I see, for I can picture only the thoughts I hold about myself.
~~~
(37) My holiness blesses the world.
~~~
The perception of my holiness does not bless me alone. Everyone and everything I see in its light shares in the joy it brings to me. There is nothing that is apart from this joy, because there is nothing that does not share my holiness. As I recognize my holiness, so does the holiness of the world shine forth for everyone to see.
~~~
(38) There is nothing my holiness cannot do.
~~~
My holiness is unlimited in its power to heal, because it is unlimited in its power to save. What is there to be saved from except illusions? And what are all illusions except false ideas about myself? My holiness undoes them all by asserting the truth about me. In the presence of my holiness, which I share with God Himself, all idols vanish.
~~~
(39) My holiness is my salvation.
~~~
Since my holiness saves me from all guilt, recognizing my holiness is recognizing my salvation. It is also recognizing the salvation of the world. Once I have accepted my holiness, nothing can make me afraid. And because I am unafraid, everyone must share in my understanding, which is the gift of God to me and to the world.
~~~
(40) I am blessed as a Son of God.
~~~
Herein lies my claim to all good and only good. I am blessed as a Son of God. All good things are mine, because God intended them for me. I cannot suffer any loss or deprivation or pain because of Who I am. My Father supports me, protects me, and directs me in all things. His care for me is infinite, and is with me forever. I am eternally blessed as His Son.
~~~
Lesson 59
~~~
The following ideas are for review today:
~~~
(41) God goes with me wherever I go.
~~~
How can I be alone when God always goes with me? How can I be doubtful and unsure of myself when perfect certainty abides in Him? How can I be disturbed by anything when He rests in me in absolute peace? How can I suffer when love and joy surround me through Him? Let me not cherish illusions about myself. I am perfect because God goes with me wherever I go.
~~~
(42) God is my strength. Vision is His gift.
~~~
Let me not look to my own eyes to see today. Let me be willing to exchange my pitiful illusion of seeing for the vision that is given by God. Christ’s vision is His gift, and He has given it to me. Let me call upon this gift today, so that this day may help me to understand eternity.
~~~
(43) God is my Source. I cannot see apart from Him.
~~~
I can see what God wants me to see. I cannot see anything else. Beyond His Will lie only illusions. It is these I choose when I think I can see apart from Him. It is these I choose when I try to see through the body’s eyes. Yet the vision of Christ has been given me to replace them. It is through this vision that I choose to see.
~~~
(44) God is the light in which I see.
~~~
I cannot see in darkness. God is the only light. Therefore, if I am to see, it must be through Him. I have tried to define what seeing is, and I have been wrong. Now it is given me to understand that God is the light in which I see. Let me welcome vision and the happy world it will show me.
~~~
(45) God is the Mind with which I think.
~~~
I have no thoughts I do not share with God. I have no thoughts apart from Him, because I have no mind apart from His. As part of His Mind, my thoughts are His and His Thoughts are mine.
