We are bound by belief, and freed by knowing the Truth.
Knowing is the conscious awareness of Truth. It’s truth-filled understanding received from the Spirit of Truth, who is beyond reality, illusion, and creation, therefore Truth is received from beyond the limits of reality. Knowing is a harmonious and integrated understanding incorporating the facets of Truth. Because Truth is, knowing is the awareness of what is ever-present and true for all. Knowing Truth manifests perfect vision in the beholder.
Because knowing is possessing Truth, when we hold it within our imagination (our creative state of mind) it manifests what is changeless, ever-present, infinite and ever-expanding. It is the state of mind that manifests the divine attributes into reality.
Conversely, beliefs are our personal perceptions of reality. They are bound by time and space, because they are predicated on the past and what that past predicts or determines about the future. Beliefs produce a darkened vision, in which we don’t see Truth, but illusions appearing as real. They fluctuate and change according to our current perceptions of reality. Because beliefs contain perceptions of error, they possess contradiction, conflict, duality and opposites. Therefore, beliefs create darkness and bondage to the realm of illusion.
Knowing the Truth is Light, which makes true vision from within possible. In the Light, we are free from all our beliefs that imprison us to experience what isn’t true. In a mind of knowing, there is no duality, thus no darkness, therefore we don’t create expressions lacking Truth. Instead, we continually create experiences of peace and joy.
To obtain a mind of knowing, we willingly relinquish all our beliefs and humbly seek Truth from the Spirit of Truth. The Spirit of Truth guides us through a metamorphosis of belief that leads to knowing. The Spirit leads us step by step up the primordial staircase in which our beliefs evolve and change as they grow more reflective of the Truth. We begin to believe that knowing Truth is possible, that knowing God is possible, and that knowing our true Self is possible. As our awareness of Truth expands, our beliefs are severed from the perceived reality, so that all we believe to be true is what we have received from the Spirit. We continue to ascend into the higher realms of belief, until we hold the Prayer of I Am in our imagination which creates a momental ascent into the realm of knowing.
When we possess a knowing of the Truth, we are one with the divine Mind of Truth. This oneness of Mind grants us all that is ours in Truth (all the divine attributes) that we previously didn’t recognize because of blinding beliefs.
Knowing is to be reconciled to Truth. Truth reconciles us to God, to our true Selves, and to all of creation. Knowing creates a harmonious perception between two or more souls because it is based on a singular Truth that conveys perfect meaning without duality or conflict. It is the state of mind in which we experience oneness as the expressed Truth of God.
