As our sleeping mind awakens to our true divine Mind, our will aligns to Truth and unifies with the sovereign Will of God. Through this holy union, we transform into expressions of the divine Self of God.
Our will is a creative energetic force that manifests our thoughts into a perceptual reality. The thoughts we accept and believe as true are the ones we give the power of our will, in corresponding degrees of strength. Therefore, our will plays a powerful role in our awakening (i.e, transformation) to our divine Self.
In the borderland, which is the mental transitional space between the dreaming mind and our divine Mind, our will is purified through the work of universal forgiveness. This divine forgiveness weeds out every thought and perception contrary to divine love (i.e., attack, condemnation, judgment, guilt, blame, shame, sin, weakness, fear, lack, etc.) and we gain the vision of the divine Self who perceives all as the holy Self of God. Our true divine Mind knows every embryonic soul as an extension of the divine Self. It’s thoughts and desires are for unity, oneness, and divine love, which along with our undivided will create invulnerable peace, joy, and love. Forgiveness restores us to our right Mind, therefore to our true Identity.
Aligning our will with Truth dispels the false beliefs that constructed the illusion. As we awaken to the Light of Truth, the illusion that once was a fixed and impenetrable reality becomes a thin veil of physical forms. Physical forms, especially our body because it is the center of our reality and expression, play a key role in keeping our minds asleep and bound to the illusion. Our bodies in themselves are neutral. They reflect what our minds believe. The dreaming mind gave the body sovereignty over it and then served it; so what the body senses, feels, and experiences determine the truth the dreaming mind believes. In a perceived separation from absolute divine love, the dreaming mind attributed all that appeared contrary to this love to the body, which we mistakenly thought was us. In this erroneous belief, darkness settled over all creation because the creative structure of the mind was flipped upside down, meaning the mind served the body instead of serving the Truth.
During our passage through the borderland, our bodies are repurposed by the Spirit of Truth. No longer does our body serve itself; its demands, pleasures, pains and most significantly the past learning it piled up as its truth. The dreaming mind used the body as a storehouse of past learning. Because the body reflects the “truth” of the dreaming mind, our bodies reflected who we thought we were as learned from our past and the past of others. It carried this learning forward, layer upon layer, into the present moment telling us we were weak, little, limited, vulnerable, lacking, decaying, and finite. In response and out of necessity, we used our bodies to attack in defense of itself.
By redirecting our will away from the illusion and to Truth, our body follows and transitions to become a shining expression of absolute divine Love, its true Source. This love defines every purpose and function of the repurposed body. As we rest our will in Truth and in the eternal present with the sovereign Will, they unite as one. Our will is no longer acting on its own in support of a self-contrived illusion. In this holy stillness, the creative God act of emergence makes all things new every present moment.
We possess the power to change all we see into the Truth by giving our will to the Truth and not what we currently physically see, feel and experience. Giving our will to Truth in the midst of the illusion is faith, because we are giving it to what we know but don’t yet see. As we initially direct our will to Truth, it may superficially feel powerless in the moment as the illusion fills our physical perceptions, but it is infinitely powerful because the sovereign Will of God is united with us in this choice. It doesn’t matter what our body feels, physically or emotionally, or what it perceives of the illusion during this transition. It’s all passing away because its Truth is guaranteed. Only impenetrable peace, joy and love are of Truth. All else that is contrary exists only as an illusion because we believed it to be true, therefore it doesn’t have to exist. As we deny the illusion and give our will to the Truth, we shine away the illusion and reveal the ever-present Kingdom of Heaven.
What we believe we are we extend outward to create our reality. In the eternal present of the Divine Mind, we are the holy Self of God that through emergence extends out to all. As we fix our will upon this Truth we are without limitation as our Mind, the true divine Mind consumes all.
