Teach Only Love, Even When You Are Being Crucified

“The message of the crucifixion is very simple and perfectly clear”:

“Teach only love, for that is what you are.”  (ACIM.CE.T.6.I.20:1-2)

The quote from above in the CE Edition of A Course In Miracles is followed by:

“If you interpret it {crucifixion} in any other way, you are using it as a weapon for assault rather than as the call to peace for which it was intended. The Apostles often misunderstood it, and always for the same reason that makes anyone misunderstand anything. Their own imperfect love made them vulnerable to projection, and out of their own fear, they spoke of the wrath of God as His retaliatory weapon. They also could not speak of the crucifixion entirely without anger, because their own sense of guilty had made them angry.” (ACIM.CE.T.20:3-6)

This comes directly out of the section of A Course In Miracles, which I believe to be a revelation from Jeshua (Jesus) to us in the modern day, to evolved minds that would now understand his teachings and messages which were often distorted and misunderstood for the very reasons mentioned in the above quote. Fear, anger, guilt, and projection.

Today is Good Friday in Christendom. Having been one who faithfully venerated the “weapon for assault”, the cross, every Good Friday, stopping to kiss it during the Liturgy in my Roman Catholic parishes I attended in my twenties and as a teenager, I focused on the solemn occasion of Jeshua’s death crucifixion and what I was taught that it meant. It was a “loving sacrifice” that he endured for us terrible sinners, who were lost without the ransom he paid through his suffering. For many Christians, the crucifixion was the Atonement, or the act of reconciling with God.

This is upside-down thinking, says Jeshua in ACIM. In my current understanding and belief, I tend to believe Jeshua (who I think authored and transmitted A Course in Miracles – you certainly don’t have to believe that to be reading this) when he says that the road to crucifixion was the “last useless journey” and that we should not “cling to the old rugged cross”, for our Atonement was set in action for us not by the act of being slaughtered like an innocent lamb, but through the Resurrection from the tomb where his earthly body was laid, where he proved that Love is stronger than fear of the egoic thought system.

People were afraid of Jeshua’s message would mean for their lives. That they would have to love, even in the face of being killed and maimed. The message Jeshua tries to get across to us in works such as A Course In Miracles and The Way of Mastery, is that there is no death and that we cannot be attacked, if we simply shift into the True Perception or Christ Vision that shows us only love, where we teach only love.

We crucify Jeshua over and over and do the same to ourselves when we are fearful and project our guilt that we carry with us. The message he, as a wisdom teacher, wanted us to realize, is that we are innocent, as was he. Innocent and strong. Even when we are being attacked. And when we know this, we can be defenseless, and in the midst of pain and even torture, we can feel love for our persecutors or those who “seem” to be attacking us. We can’t really be attacked or crucified, although many of you would argue from life experiences that this statement simply isn’t true. Pain feels too real. And it hurts.

Can you look into the eyes of another, who may be driving a nail through your wrist, with the eyes of love. Jeshua (Jesus) did. And that is what we must do. To RISE above the world and ego’s thinking that we are victims who have every right to be angry and afraid, and to be resurrected before the body dies and is laid aside. This means we have to have a major shift in our thinking. It is possible. We need but allow it to happen in our minds. By choosing only love in all instances, especially when it feels like we are being crucified. Especially then.

“Teach only love, for that is what you are.”

That may seem impossible, but it is something we should strive to attain and do. And we can. When we awaken to the truth of our being, that we are the Christ as is everyone else in this world, that we are all one and united, that nothing, not even our perceptions based on fear can separate us from one another.

So, I urge you to take a step back, this Good Friday, Holy Saturday, and Easter Sunday and look through the Higher Mind in you, where you know that, you too are forever innocent, that you, like me, may merely make mistakes that can be corrected, and that we have nothing to feel guilty about. When we do atone, or make right (undo) our perceptions of fear, transforming them into love, we too will be resurrected from the tomb of the ego thought system of death and guilt.

Jeshua may not have died to save us from our so called “sins”, but he did die, loving humanity and every soul that the Divine ever created. Most of all, he showed us a “better way”. So, it’s time that we come down off the cross, stop crucifying ourselves and even more, gently help our fellow brothers and sisters down from theirs by forgiving them of what they really never did wrong at all.

CHRIST REALIZATION YOGA – DAY 58 (REVIEW # 1: DAYS 36-40)

DAY 58

 

Today I will review the following affirmations:

 

DAY 36

My wholeness, my oneness, my sanctity, my experience of yoga-union and Communion with God Mind, Father-Mother, encompasses, surrounds, and blesses everything I perceive.

 

My wholeness, oneness, and pure in truth sanctity is the source of the Edenic State of Reality superimposed over the image of the world. I have released the past and my mind is healed of the disease of guilt. I embrace the untarnished nature and truth of my being and am at One with the Allness. My Christed sight sees and remembers only the radiant impeccable glory of the world, because in actuality the projected film of my thought vibrations are extensions of the what I reflect from my holy spotless nature, born of the Vastness of Divinity in Heaven’s Awareness.

 

DAY 37

My wholeness, my sanctity, my state of Samadhi-Oneness, my experience of yoga-union and Communion with God Mind, Father-Mother, blesses the world that the collective ego and my individual mind has created in which to learn, grow, awaken, and dissolve past accumulated karma.

 

When I see wholeness in myself I am not only infusing myself with love, but the entirety of Divinity’s Emanations. All brothers and sisters in spirit along with all things, even appearances that will fade when time comes to an end, are made radiant by the nectar of the joy wholeness and sanctity give to me. Not one single manifestation is separate from the joy of Communion with God Mind, Father-Mother, because all things share in the primal goodness of Divine Awareness. As I Realize that I am whole and sanctified, the wholeness and sanctity of the world emanates and radiates out from the Original Center and Expanse of Pure Light Truth also.

 

DAY 38

My wholeness, my sanctity, my state of Samadhi-Oneness, my experience of Yoga-Union and Communion with God Mind, Father-Mother can accomplish any desired outcome through the volition of conscious choice making.

 

My wholeness is free to express its fullness and vastness, qualities which have the power to cure and abolish sickness because that wholeness is sanctified by the magnitude of Eternal Oneness that liberates. From what else can I be liberated from in moksha (freed while living in this dream) except avidya-illussion? For all avidya-illusions are nothing more than insane beliefs about who I think I am. My wholeness dissolves and undoes all insanity by asserting the truth about who I really am. In pure presence of my wholeness and sanctified Oneness, experienced as Yoga-Union and Communion with Divinity and all His/Her Emanations, all sick and twisted gods of my ego-ahamkar’s making disappear.

 

DAY 39

My wholeness, my sanctity, my state of Samadhi-Oneness, my experience of Yoga-Union and Communion with God Mind, Father-Mother are my freedom, and my final moksha-kaivalya-liberation in this lifetime and beyond into Eternity where I rest, unbroken. Loved Far beyond crippling fear and guilt.

 

Since my wholeness protects me from the poison of guilt, acknowledging and Realizing the enlightened nature of my wholeness is Realizing my moksha-liberation. Doing this also acknowledges the moksha-liberation of the world. When I have embraced my wholeness and sanctity, there is not anything that can cripple me with fear. Since I am fearless, everyone I am connected to in spirit must also share this universal gnosis-knowing, which has been bestowed on me and the manifested world by our Source.

 

DAY 40

In truth, I am a Christed Son/Daughter, a sacred expression, extension, and emanation of the Father-Mother God, Brahman Immortal, the Dao Supreme, Divine Mind.

 

That being said and proclaimed, I Realize that all is pure and divinized. Christed. Anointed. I am a Christed Child of God and all divinized things are my inheritance, for the Divine Creator and Comforter-Sustainer of all that cannot perish, had the intent that this treasure be mine. In no way can I be tormented, deprived, or be afflicted with pain because I am a Divine Offspring. My Supernal Parents uphold me, keep me safe, embrace me, consecrate me, illuminate my mind-body vehicle, give me discernment through reason, and guide me through my contemplations, meditations, and actions. Their compassion extended to me is endless and exists forever. I am a sacred expression and emanation and am one with my Source.CHRIS
