Grandeur vs grandiosity

In the Absolute State of Mind wherein Self is Known as Pure Love, the voice for ego is not present; it never was. Like salt grains in water, the ego, being part of an imaginary thought system, cannot keep shape at Home in the Ocean of God’s Love. The ocean does not conjure to make itself out of salt grains and water, it was created by itself, just like you were. The grandeur of God’s Power is Given and Received Freely by the ocean, as it should be by you to yourself; with no reaching from here to there to get it. Reaching is grandiosity, a technique of ego, in opposition with the one and only desire to rest in/receive/extend Self-Love.

Jesus/Holy Spirit/Right Mind says in ACIM text: “The ego is immobilized in the presence of God’s grandeur, because His grandeur establishes your freedom. Even the faintest hint of reality drives the ego from your mind, because you will give up all investment in it. Grandeur is totally without illusions, and because it is real, it is compellingly convincing. Yet the conviction of reality will not remain with you unless you do not allow the ego to attack it. The ego will make every effort to recover and mobilize its energies against your release. It will tell you that you are insane, and argue that grandeur cannot be a real part of you because of the littleness in which it believes. Yet your grandeur is not delusional because you did not make it. You made grandiosity and are afraid of it, because it is a form of attack, but your grandeur is of God, Who created it out of His Love.”

God is Love, and you are the Kingdom of God – you are His Grand Love. Reach not for the grandiosity of your ego self’s littleness, and rest instead in the grandeur of Your Love.
