Jesus, through the Holy Spirit, leads The Way back to oneness with God’s Loving Light, through forgiveness of the Son of God’s belief in the need for a body.

Love is all there is to Know and comprehend

Man is eternally creative, and has never been separated from the Source of creativity. What is expressed from Love returns to Love for its re-expression. Oneness is shared freely in the Mind of God; there is no concept of death naturally attached to the embodiment. The idea of death is the ego’s false idea.

God and His Sons (“Desire in Me is soul in Me” (Divine Iliad)), in the surety of being, know that what you extend you are.” (ACIM Text)

Find peace in the surety of the Idea of Man in the Mind of God; the Idea is permanent. Perhaps One believes that the embodiment of Idea is proof of life, and that without it, there is no life. Yet this belief comes to a gentle end in Truth. Love is forever by its natural extension. Be Love now, and Be Love forever. Comprehend the world as Love expressing only, and Know that One is Love. “What you extend you are“.

To think like God is to share His certainty of what you are, and to create like Him is to share the perfect Love He shares with you.” (ACIM Text)

Only to perception in its prime, as described by the ego, lead by the senses, does perfect Love seem to die. In reality, the physicality alternates via interchange between concentration and decentration of One Volume as the Son evolves to full, operational Knowledge of Oneness, and remains wholly awake with the ecstasy of the unfolding and refolding of the Self.

One with Source, One does not come or go from eternity by the seeming to be divided embodiment; One lives for eternity with the Love Giving for Re-Giving of the Father-Mother’s decentrative/concentrative Pulse, inseparable from the Love of Self.

Spirit in its Knowledge is unaware of the ego” (ACIM)

The ego describes life and death based on perception of loss, without Knowledge that loss is impossible. The ego cannot Know that “John Smith and Jane Doe” are not lost from the Mind of God by the illusion of embodiment, nor is anything lost to the ego when the illusion of their embodiment returns to Source. Love is all there is to Source. Love is all there is for John Smith and Jane Doe to comprehend as life unfolds, and to Know, as it refolds.

Giving the body over to the Oneness of the Creator’s Creation

The Light is ever Known to be unified in One, even while the Self is perceived to be expressed in many lights. What exits the stage is belief in the seeming division of One into many separate parts. Each part is Known to be connected to every other by the centering and controlling invisible Magnetic Light that is the Black Wholeness of God.

If the body becomes a means you give to the Holy Spirit to use on behalf of union of the Sonship, you will not see anything physical except as what it is.” (ACIM Text)

God has one idea. That one idea is Creation as a whole.” (Walter Russell)

When the body is given over to Oneness, to Creation as a whole, the range of perception opens up to include all of its parts. One sees no separation in God’s one idea of creation, or one creating thing.

With understanding of Oneness, the metaphysics of creating things easily becomes working Knowledge. Here, God thinks to create a creative cat, and here, a creative tree, and here, a creative man — all by the same simple process of dividing Magnetic Stillness into electrical pairs of opposites and bringing them back together as the idea in Mind seeming to be embodied. The physical gives seeming location to what has none, matter is the still idea of creation in motion that reflects the idea back to the imaginer in Source. When given to the Holy Spirit’s Purpose, One sees the body of God for what it is only, a reflection of countless creative parts of the Creator’s one idea of a creating thing.

Release the tension from Mind to Know

Life “associated with a body” is like life associated with a stretched elastic band. The struggle is to keep the tension of illusion from releasing back to its normal, relaxed state of reality. The normal state of Mind is wholly relaxed in the Stillness of Magnetic Union with Source. Electrical activity is like stretching an elastic band, and paying tribute to the tension it takes to keep an idea seeming-to-be embodied in space and time.

All Mind is whole, and the belief that part of it is physical, or not Mind, is a fragmented or sick interpretation.” (ACIM Text)

Attaching to the physical and calling it real is an abnormal state of Mind. Non-physical awareness of wholeness is the normal state of Mind.

Perception of the body can be unified only by one purpose. This releases the Mind from the temptation to see the body in many lights, and gives it over entirely to the One Light in which it can be really understood.” (ACIM Text)

In the state in the fire, the many lights disappeared into the normal state of Mind of non-physical awareness of union in Source. Consciousness of the tension required to “see the body in many lights” dissolved into the Pure Awareness of tension-less union with Source. The understanding was that the body in many lights had never been made real; all there ever was and could ever be, was the normal, whole state of Union in Love.

Loss of any kind is impossible. But when you look upon a brother as a physical entity, his power and glory are “lost” to you and so are yours. You have attacked him, but you must have attacked yourself first. Do not allow him to belittle himself in your Mind, but give him freedom from his belief in littleness, and thus escape from yours.” (ACIM Text)

Sit the f*ck (the illusion of the physicality) down, shut the hell (the belief in the illusion of the physicality) up, be still and Know (that “I am” is unified in non-physical Source).

Recall not the nervous system of duality, but the Interchange in Love that is Oneness with the Father

The nervous system is like the vertical spine of the cross that bears the horizontal outcroppings of space and time.

To forget the highs and lows of the nervous system is to remember Oneness in Love. To give them power is to seem as if to exist outside of the stability of the Kingdom of Heaven and at the mercy of duality. The nervous system interprets the effects of ecstatic thought, as well as “the detour into fear” (ACIM).

In the perceptual dream of the self split in two, there is consciousness of the dream vs unconsciousness of the dream. For every high of the nervous system that Mind attaches to in the dream of a split-from-Source-self, there is a corresponding low that Mind tries to avoid. For every thought of Love made unconscious, there is conscious pain. When the focus is on the dream, Awareness of Interchange in Love seems obscured by the seeming roller coaster of outer change.

Jesus spoke to the unreality of the nervous system by His untainted-by-belief Knowledge of Oneness. Recall not the nervous system that speaks to the belief in separation by responding to the illusion of outer change, but the Interchange in Love that is not the dream.



Glossary of terms: Atonement for Self

Atonement for Self

The ACIM speaks to accepting theAtonement for Selfas being the end of time or the return to Timelessness. The Atonement is the end of giving reality to duality by the realization of the eternal truth of Oneness.

Accepting the Atonement for Self releases one from belief in the timed-in body; it allows one to forget the body and rest in the eternal Timelessness of Source. The body is potential appearing out of place, ever being “drawn back” to the inertia of its nonlinear seed in Source. The  nervous system cannot impact the dimensionless Self; the nervous system and its records of dimension are not part of the Self’s Eternity. To remember the nervous system and concurrently call it the Self is to recall limitation, and thereby crucify the Son of God.

Accepting the Atonement for Self “releases the Christ from the cross”, which changes brain physiology.  Accepting the Atonement frees Mind to use the body to act with Love vs fear. The Atonement accepted, one is free to manifest God.

ACIM: A Course in Miracles.

A Course in Miracles is about forgiveness of the belief in giving reality to illusion. Forgiveness frees the Mind to rest in God’s Absolute Love and to create illusion in tandem with God’s thinking (aka manifest God) for eternity vs struggle with the voice for ego and its opinions for a lifetime. Forgiveness of the belief in illusion “accepts the Atonement for Self“. The ACIM workbook activities, over the course of a year, releases the Timeless Mind from its belief in the illusion of the body existing in time. The textbook goes into the metaphysics of the belief in separation.

Without the idea of death, there is no world” is the quote from ACIM that forms “the bones” of the book. The universe and all of its inhabitants did indeed disappear in the state in the fire. They didn’t just disappear; they never were. All sense records of the universe, body of Darcie French included, were forgotten; they were no longer sensed. In their absen(s)e was only the non-sensed, Known Memory of Being in God. The body remained in appearance — it never faltered in playing out its role, yet there was absolutely no Awareness of it. There was only the Awareness of Being in God’s Love.

What is there to ‘forgive’?

What is there to forgive of the Guiltless Son of God, but the belief in giving reality to the  illusion of nonlinear idea taking linear form?

“Forgive them, for they know not what they do” (Jesus Christ). No one ever knows illusion to be real, but temporarily believes it to be so. Forgive because of the belief in illusion to be real; misconception is the reason for all discord. There is nothing to forgive but mistaken belief.

What is forever embedded in the Mind of God only seems to come forth by the illusion of a dying image temporarily coming into view. Close the eyes, and the image disappears; it never was. Without attention to perception tracking the coming and going of idea, all that is left is the reality of the image-maker.

“Without the idea of death, there is no world” (ACIM)
