We are One

Happy Easter!

“During the Crucifixion, one of the Roman soldiers ran a spike through J’s (Jesus) wrist. He didn’t feel or show any pain. The soldier was indignant. He screamed at J and demanded, “Why don’t you feel any pain?” J looked at him calmly and said, “If you have no guilt in your mind, you cannot suffer.” The soldier became outraged at his inability to inflict pain on J, and stuck a spear in his side. It didn’t do the soldier any good, or have any effect on J.

At one point, with J nailed to the cross and with blood flowing down, he gazed lovingly over at his wife, Mary Magdalene, and she looked at him. As their eyes connected, a gentle smile came on both of their faces. They knew he had overcome death. He wasn’t a body in his mind. What he was couldn’t be killed by the world. It couldn’t even be hurt by the world! The spirit that he really was, which is no different than God, would go on forever. She was experiencing the same thing as J, and there was nothing anyone in the world could do to alter the truth that was within them.

That’s the message of the Crucifixion, or as J put it later in the Course, “Teach only love, for that is what you are. If you interpret the crucifixion in any other way, you are using it as a weapon for assault rather than as the call for peace for which it was intended.” (Love Has Forgotten No One: The Answer to Life, by Gary Renard)

Happy Easter Beloveds!  It is so important to actually understand what this day really celebrates.  Our level of expansion is reflected in our degree of understanding of this human experience.  Jesus is a story whose purpose is to free us from our misconceptions of “reality”.  Several of his teachings come to mind now – one is; be in this world – not of it.  Which actually means the only way to be free of it is to move through it.   Love your life and the ride is much more pleasant.  To hate it, get upset, or be angry is literally being mad (pun intended)!  It is resistance and as we know, what you resist, persists.  A confusion that often arises is that you must like all of your experiences and this is simply not true.  The fact is you will not like many of your experiences.  They are still good experiences.  The reason is up to you of course.  My opinion is we have experiences we don’t like because we need balance and it also expands the mind.  The deeper in illusion you are the more unpleasant experiences there are to be had.  Let go and allow yourself to rise up like a balloon rising up through consciousness!

On this day of Resurrection keep the above quote in mind and forgive your thoughts of dying!  Life is eternal!  No one ever dies, although the dream would have you thinking of it all the time.  Know that you have a body, but that you are not that body.  Nor are you the mind which thinks you are the body.  Be not attached to this world, but at the same time Love It!  Love every aspect and when the time has come we will be released from this dream to experience Eternity once again.

ACIM and Gary Renard

“Beware of the temptation to perceive yourself unfairly treated.  In this view, you seek to find an innocence that is not Theirs but yours alone, and at the cost of someone else’s guilt.  Can innocence be purchased by the giving of your guilt to someone else?” (Jesus)

There’s a capital T in Theirs because what they really are is innocent Spirit, beyond the veil.  But if you perceive yourself as unfairly treated, then you’re making everything real, which makes the entire ego thought system of guilt real in your mind.  The only way to find your innocence is to get that it’s not real and forgive others for what they have not done in reality. And since it never happened, you can then think of them as being innocent.  That’s the way to have it for yourself.  Never forget that.  It’s the only way out.  (Gary Renard, 2013 p.108)

If you perceive yourself as unfairly treated,

then you’re making everything real.

Just one of many insightful quotes from Gary Renard’s new book Love Has Forgotten No One.  Of the many ACIM teachers out there Gary is by far the easiest to understand and thus the most effective.  He makes the course enjoyable as well as comprehensible.  Of course to fully understand this book, reading the other two are required, but then no one said being an ACIM student was easy.  It takes at least a year to do the daily lessons and in reality is will take the rest of your life to fully grasp and apply the teachings.  This is only if you are dedicated also.  This does not give you an excuse to skip it altogether though.  As is stated in the beginning of the textbook, “”This is a course in miracles. It is a required course. Only the time you take it is voluntary. Free will does not mean that you can establish the curriculum. It means only that you can elect what you want to take at a given time. The course does not aim at teaching the meaning of love, for that is beyond what can be taught. It does aim, however, at removing the blocks to the awareness of love’s presence, which is your natural inheritance. The opposite of love is fear, but what is all-encompassing can have no opposite.” (A Course In Miracles, 1996, p.2)

If you are not already a student I recommend reading Gary’s three books first and then doing the course or perhaps if you are dedicated you could do Gary’s books while you do the workbook daily lessons.  Just be warned, your life will never be the same again!  This is a good thing.
