The Voice of Truth tells us we are the Self (Son) of God, inherently divine, holy and infinitely valuable. Voices of illusion tell us we are inherently bad, unholy, and of subjective value. Two different sources, only one is true.
As God’s creation we can only be as He created us to be, which is one fashioned in His Likeness of Holiness, Eternal Life, and Perfection. If we believe we are the opposite, how can this image exist but in an illusionary world within our mind?
We are called to recognize we are asleep so we can awaken, but we are not something other than what God created us to be. If we believe we are something other than the expressed Self of God, we are in a deep sleep experiencing a false image of our self. It’s not the Truth. It’s an illusion formed by a mind that lacks Truth. Therefore, the call within by the Spirit of Truth is to awaken our true, holy Self (the Christ within).
A grave misunderstanding that perpetuates the belief in a false image of the self is the corresponding belief that we are mere creatures instead of creators. As long as this is our belief, we will remain asleep, caught up in the illusion and unable to mature into our true Self.
As creators, who we believe we are, we express. As dreamers, we experience our beliefs, whether they reflect Truth or not. Within the sleeping mind we perceive corrupted appearances because these images are what we are conscious of being. When we become aware of the Truth, our creative will is redirected into Truth, and we begin to see our true Self emerge, made in the Likeness of God.
As all slept, all got lost in the lie of the false self, including those governing and propagating religions. In this blindness false doctrines arose, founded on the image of the false self. As a source of truth for many, religions became the blind leading the blind and enslaving many to this false image and all it entails. Even Jesus’ central message that the Kingdom of God is within us (we are one with God) was replaced by false doctrines proclaiming we are the opposite, and therefore instead of his resurrection proving his words, his bodily crucifixion became a payment for our corrupted nature, a concept reflecting the false self and belief in the power of self.
Jesus taught the Kingdom of God within us sets us free from all the death and corruption we believed and created. His victory over death served to prove his words. He taught that through seeking, faith, and belief in the Truth as received from the Spirit of Truth, our minds are renewed as we are “born again” out of lies and into the Truth. When we know the Truth, we reflect our true Self because what we are conscious of being we express.
The multitude of voices in the outer reality reinforce this false image of self, which further convinces a sleeping mind the false is true. In a world of illusions, it requires dedicated seeking for Truth from the Spirit of Truth to know the Truth.
During this spiritual awakening, the Light of Truth is shining in all areas. What it will reveal will be startling but liberating. The Light begins as a small flame and grows to become undeniable Light as Truth’s expression expands outwardly. Those bound to the senses and unable to hear the Spirit will outwardly see the Light of Truth so they can awaken within. They can’t be told, so they will be shown. Through this awakening, the lie of the false self that sits at the center of the multitude of lies will be cast down and all will come to know they are the expressed Self (Son) of God and always have been.
