A quick reminder … The perfection of Truth is always beyond our finite understanding. Therefore, what we proclaim is always according to our present awareness as we progress out of darkness and ever-deeper into the Light of eternal Truth. As we attune our internal ears and eyes to the Spirit of Truth, the Spirit aligns our understanding and beliefs to Truth. This awareness of progressive understanding is the humility that enables us to continue to learn and grow as a divine being.
We are as God created us and nothing can change that; we are holy, sacred, pure, good and most importantly through this embryonic state we become perfection beyond perfection, which is our ability to ever expand in oneness with God. It’s only in our self-made, illusionary reality (which our senses convince us is real), do we imagine we are limited and separate (cut-off) from God in any way.
Separation from God is impossible because divine love is all-inclusive. Therefore, we must be recipients of his love and are destined to be expressions of his love. In this, we see suffering could never be his eternal will and instead suffering is our creation because we mistakenly believe we are separate from his love. This false belief constructs an illusionary reality that we experience as real because of our physical senses, which are also a part of the illusion. If we trust and put our faith in our senses we remain bound in unawareness. Because we hear, see, taste, smell, and feel we assume what they “tell” us is truth, yet even in this dream how often have our senses misled us. Our true eternal state is perpetual peace, abundance, joy, love, and all the attributes God fashioned in us as a part of Himself.
If we believe suffering is of God, then we make him a sufferer, something he is not. This false image of God enslaves us to suffering. God is eternal and his reality contains nothing of finite characteristics. Only in the darkened dream of illusions can we create such a false image. Jesus Christ came to dispel such illusions not reinforce them – removing sickness, lying thought-forms (aka demons), and even death. He came giving abundant life and proclaiming the “Kingdom of God is at hand”.
However everything serves a divine purpose even this dream. In this dream we experience an illusionary absence of love that we may desire to choose love of our own free will. It affords us this Divine Choice – a choice to be what we are: at one with God’s loving attributes, holy and of his likeness. It provides us a liberty of will that creates a capacity to outpour and extend his divine love. This free-will Choice establishes in us the divine quality of love that makes it what it is – unconditional and freely given. Love gives because it wants to give (an element of “choice”). By choosing the true image of God, in accordance with divine love, we are now empowered to dissolve suffering from our reality because we awaken to the truth that we were always one with this love. In consciously making the Divine Choice, our love of God and all of creation is sincere and not “robotic”, which pure love can never be.
In this dream we live our illusions. Just like a night dream, our reality isn’t actually real, it only seems real. Our illusions are confined to a finite, temporary dream state of consciousness. In our night dreams, we create all we perceive – every character, situation, etc., and we do the same with this “reality.” Science is finally catching up with this aspect of reality that truth-seekers have known for centuries: life is but a dream.
We awaken as we stop putting faith, trust and belief in what our external senses perceive and put them in the internal Voice of God that only speaks peace, love, and eternal life to us. In this realignment of faith (awakening), we begin to release the finite concepts we “created” of sin, evil, guilt, fear, shame, separation, condemnation, suffering, lack, etc. As we go through this transition we struggle and go through many ups and downs as the depth of our illusions are unearthed so we may be liberated into the Truth. To believe in what you internally hear from the Spirit and not what you outwardly see with your eyes is challenging. To believe that our perceived suffering isn’t real is extremely difficult, but it’s how we move out of the illusion and into the Truth. If we persist we are carried in the arms of transformative grace through this transition, and we cannot fail because divine love never fails.
What we believe we create. As we cease to believe in the massive illusion we’ve created, and instead put our faith in Truth, then we will manifest the Kingdom of God as our reality.
