All of God’s creations were created perfectly by God. The perceptual distortions laid over God’s Kingdom form a world of illusion wherein the Son of God seems separated from his Father and at war with his brothers. This is the world that God did not create, but arose from the “tiny, mad idea” of separation, and by projection cast an overlay on the Paradise of God’s creation. Paradise is the pre-separation state of Mind wherein there are no perceived needs. This state is the Son’s only Reality.
“In the creation, God extended Himself to His creations and imbued them with the same loving will to create. You have not only been fully created, but created perfect. There is no emptiness in you. Because of your likeness to your creator you are creative. No child of God can lose this ability because it is inherent to what he is, but he can use it inappropriately by projecting. The inappropriate use of extension, or projection, occurs when you believe that some emptiness or lack exists within you, and that you can fill it with your own ideas instead of truth.” (ACIM Text pg 17).
The use of projection results in the world of illusion. Without projection there is no belief in space and time and emptiness or stop-frames on Love within it as being part of the extension of creation; there is no idea of death. There is no need for Relief from suffering; suffering does not exist in the pre-separation state of Mind. This is the state that is returned to, in Mind, by Self-Realization.
In the Mind of God are all ideas at rest, perfectly balanced in their Source. In the Mind of God is everything provided; unborn and never born.
In the state of Oneness of Father and Son that is creation extending, there is no idea of need. Appearance and disappearance of needs is a sensual illusion. At rest in God’s Mind is the One Desire fulfilled, and are all needs met.
“The world is not left by death, but by truth” (ACIM)
