Lesson 12

I am upset because I see a meaningless world.

When we come to realize that we are seeing a meaningless world,  it tends to upset.  It upsets because we believe we are seeing it but also because we chose to make it, to project a reality of what is not there.

Images are perceived, not known.  Knowledge cannot deceive, but perception can.  You can perceive yoursef as self-creating but you connot do more than believe it. You cannot make it true.” T. 3. VII.4:4-8

“Look at your life and see what the devil has made.  But realize that this making will surely dissolve in the light of truth, becaue its foundation is a lie.” T. 3.VII. 5:3&4

Believing the lie is the work of the devil , the lie is the separation.  Believing the lie is no less the work of the ego, than creating the lie.  The one lie is the separation. God never told us we were separate from Him, out of Eden because of our dependence on our own thought, out of Eden because of the first lie ” you will not die if you eat of it.” It is with our own thoughts we die, Gods knowlege is eternal.   It is only when the perceived knowledge that is gleened from the fruit is relinquished that we realize our life is eternal.  That first lie.  God’s one purpose in giving his Son to us, was the Atonement and reunifiation with him.  Atonement is: “The one defense that cannot be used destructively because it is not a device you made.” All other defensees are double edged.  And they will cut both ways.

Truth in spirit can not be hidden.  Though the ego will always try to stamp it out.  This is why we are upset when we see a meaningless world.  Because the ego makes the perception that the meaningless world is real because ego made the meaning. Only it is not, and can not be.

I smile at this because truth can not be changed.  Whether one believes it or not.  Whether no one believes it or not.  For it is in truth we stand with God, it is in truth with God that we need fear no man.  For no man can take what is eternal.

Simple.  We recognize arogance because like recognizes like.  We recognize pride because pride recognizes pride.  We can not see that which we don’t recognize.  The world is changing.  And it is in great polarization that it does so.  There is pain in this world, because of the free will given here.  Here in this garden free will was given.  It is not so in spirit that is eternal.  In spirit, our will is with God’s because it is one with God there is no difference in what is seen because there is no perception only truth. It is only in separation and individual ego minds and belief in separation that we yeild to perception.  We are called to a new life in Christ, in spirit.  But how many ego’s from the time of the Son until now?  And for that the Holy Spirit must be our Guide for he is timeless and eternal.  And so with bowed head into the crook of Gods arm and of His Son I stay.
