Held dear by the voice for ego, or the belief in a subjective self split from Love, is the idea of sacrifice. The voice for ego blocks Self-Knowledge. Self-Knowledge is Awareness of Self-Love. Self-Love is ever-present; It never leaves. It only seems blocked, by but a thought system.
“Ego’s loss is spirit’s gain,” said Dr David R Hawkins; when the block is removed, one gladly Knows it. The loss of the idea of sacrifice lets open the flood-gates for the Self to be Known, for the Truth of Self-Love to be Realized.
Says Jesus/Holy Spirit/Right Mind in ACIM: “This is the only ‘cost’ of truth: You will no longer see what never was, nor hear what makes no sound. Is it a sacrifice to give up nothing, and to receive the Love of God forever?”
The belief in the split from God’s Love is nothing but an idea, and thus it takes but nothing to release it. The split never actually happened. In the presence of Truth, the idea of a split from Love is all that goes.
Sacrifice sacrifice. Surrender belief for Relief.
