T. V Wholeness and Spirit


Wholeness says nothing is lacking. Because the spirit is as God made us is perfect it is in a state of wholeness but for the separation imposed by the ego. Because of the projection of separation both miracles and the body are vehicles or “learning tools” to to wholeness. Our wholeness being as God created us. Perfected. There is but one block to this…

In comes the ego which always serves itself, deludes itself and believes the body to belong to it. Our body in it’s time-bound form teaches us many things. It teaches us to listen to it to learn from it. If there is physical pain, slow down etc. Learning is only required when it is needed and can only be achieved when it is desired. Miracles also serve as a tool to learn. Miracles are then a reflection of the spiritual eternity on our time-bound earth. They reduce the requirement and necessity of time. Miracles are that tool for learning that bring us toward the wholeness and oneness of spirit.

The Spirit requires nothing as it is already in the state of perfection God created us in. Only the ego experiences lack and therefore “needs”.

I dreamed once that I ascended upwards in a transitional state. Ego, being present when I sleep said , “Be afraid, you need your shoes.” Spirit said, “No, there is no need of shoes!” Ego then said, “You are cold, you need your coat!” Spirit said, “I am incapable of being cold. There is no need for a coat. ” Cold you see is a measure of comparison made valid only by time. Time is non existent in eternity. Spirit is eternal.

We read in the Bible about becoming like little children. Jesus spoke of this to Nicodemus. Think for a moment, how as “knowledgeable” adults, we watch with dismay as children run outside without knowing that there is cold. Often, they stay unaffected by cold for quite along time much to our chagrin. And when you ask them, they say “I am not cold.” Children if we pay attention when they are young are closer to perfected state as God made us than we as “knowledgeable” adults ever are. Is it any wonder, then that Jesus said we must become as they are?

“Whatever is true is eternal, and cannot change or be changed. Spirit is therefore unalterable because it is already perfect, but the mind can elect what it chooses to serve. The only limit put on its choice is that it cannot serve two masters.”
