“What is the resurrection? Very simply, the resurrection is the overcoming or surmounting of death. It is a reawakening or a rebirth, a change of mind about the meaning of the world. It is the acceptance of the Holy Spirit’s interpretation of the world’s purpose; it is the acceptance of the Atonement for oneself. It is the end of dreams of misery, and the glad awareness of the Holy Spirit’s final dream. It is the recognition of the gifts of God. It is the dream in which the body functions perfectly, having no function except communication. It is the lesson in which learning ends, for it is consummated and surpassed with this. It is the invitation to God to take His final step. It is the relinquishment of all other purposes, all other interests, all other wishes and all other concerns. It is the single desire of the Son for the Father.” (ACIM Manual For Teachers pg 68)
The resurrection is the single desire of the Son for the Father Realized. As a teacher of God, the only desire that can be supported is this desire, that of the Son for the Father. All other desires are laid to Rest in the Awareness of One Love between Father and Son. All teachings that lead directly to realization come from the Holy Spirit, the God-given “link” from Self to self, Who is available to all, and who all teachers of God surrender too. Book learning, theology, “learning about” may be interesting to consciousness, but pure Awareness of God’s Love is devoid of consciousness. Nothing more is needed from consciousness when the one desire is fulfilled, and so it is this one desire that is supported.
It could be said that Nirvana, Godhead, and the Resurrection are one in the same; they are the direct realization of the eternal nature of the Father of Creation’s Love.
The Son wants only the Father, and only the Father wants the Son. The son of man, believing in illusion, knows not that he is the Son, nor knows what he really wants. He believes he is wanted, and that he wants; yet his only desire is for the Father, and the only One who desires him is the Father.
“The worst that happened is belief,” said Byron Katie. One can see how this is so. As illusions of impermanence begin to dissolve, only “the Holy Spirit’s final dream”, the final illusion of “Heaven on Earth”, has any appeal. The happy dream becomes manifest as one lets go of belief. The subjective experience in consciousness of accepting the Father’s Love is that of bliss, and this bliss radiates for All. Nothing by way of perception can genuinely hold mind’s attention, because the Atonement is accepted. Belief is surrendered for Relief.
