Special effects

In God’s Cosmic Play, instead of direct Knowledge of One Quality that interchanges with itself, it seems as if there are two special effects that interplay – attachment love and fear. Attachment love-based special effects produce endorphins, and fear-based special effects produce adrenaline. Neither are of the Kingdom of Heaven, which is neither cause (attachment love or fear) nor effect (endorphins or adrenaline), but Absolute Love that interchanges “between God and Son”, with only itself.

The Love of the Absolute State is a Quality that is Known; it is not perceived by the interplay of emotions at play. Perception is the veil of Maya that seems to cover the Absolute with special effects. One may believe that through perception one has found happiness, but without Knowledge of Heaven, Now, the idea that only death is at play seems to take it away.

“You can defend your specialness, but never will you hear the Voice for God beside it.” (ACIM txt pg 503). God’s Love is not part of the duality between attachment love and fear.

The Kingdom of Heaven is Quality of God and a quality void of attachment to all experiential effects. Heaven contains no specialness between this effect or that effect. The characters in the play believe they are at the mercy of cause and effect, and they believe it is coming from “God in Heaven”; because it is God’s Play, the belief is that it is God doling out the special effects.

Yet God’s Love is Perfectly Balanced and His Play simulates the innate Balance of His Kingdom. Attachment love and fear cancel one another out indefinitely in God’s Play as they find rest in the voiding of their opposition; in the Absolute, they never were opposed and are One.

    Isn’t it true that this world was created by “God” so that It could know itself as God? This is mainly explained in the “Conversations with God” books by Neale Donald Walsch. Infinite Bliss couldn’t be experienced without its opposite, the pain and suffering of this planet.

    Maya is seen as the creative aspect of God, and that it is not a bad thing, nor something to be escaped from.

    Isn’t saying that this world “never was”, implying that the Absolute did NOT create this world? Or that the Absolute is capable of doing something that it didn’t really want to do?

    God created all that is for eternity; not that which is perishable. What God created cannot be named/described by perception; what God created is not perceived through “a veil” but Known directly “as is”. The Absolute is all God created; the perishable is a special effect that comes from the idea of death or “what isn’t” eternal. Check out Walter and Lao Russell’s 12 part home study program that explains how ideas in the Mind of God are embodied for a time, and then return to rest in Source. All form comes from the formless power of God; the misperception is that God could erect the mirrors of perception and organize the idea of death. The ego does that; the ego organizes the idea of death, by placing the veil of Maya over the face of Christ. This isn’t “good” or “bad” – it is just a split or spin from knowledge of unity with Truth. One Knows God as Self through Self-Inquiry, vs identification with spins from Truth.
