REVIEW DAY 1-5
Spend two minutes contemplating each affirmation. If any one of the five affirmations appeals to you more than another, you may spend more time centering on that one.
’None of the things that my eyes and visual cortex see means what my personal ego (ahamkar), nor sense impression recorder mind (manas), has told me it does. Vibrations of thought projection that came from my subjective, separative mind distort the fact that everything is neutral and has no meaning just because it is in an apparent materialized and manifested state. Through my neutral, infinite, superconscious (intuitive) and discerning (buddhi) mind, I retract my thought projections and their impressions from the objects around me. This is my first step in allowing things to be as they are, thought and energy that has materialized.’
I don’t truly see anything that comes into my field of viewing, thus there is an absence of vision. Nothing is out there. The absence of all things material can and do not mean anything. I must embrace this in order to obtain True Perception, Christ Vision, so I can see. All of which I believe I see inhibits true sight from occurring. I will release all blocks to seeing by accepting that what I think I see is devoid of meaning. I do this so that I will be able to see truth, only truth, and be present to that of which is instead of seeking meaning in illusions and figments of my projected fantasies coming from the small ego-ahamkar mind that try to convince me of their reality, when in truth they are made up and come from oblivion.
‘I have projected all subjective-relative (mayic filtered) perceived meaning onto everything that my eyes and visual cortex see. The physical world in itself doesn’t mean anything, certainly not what my personal ego (ahamkar), nor sense impression recorder mind (manas), have told me it does. Vibrations of thought projection that came from my subjective, separative mind distort the fact that everything is neutral and has no meaning just because it is in an apparent materialized and manifested state. Through my neutral, infinite, superconscious (intuitive) and discerning (buddhi) mind, I retract my thought projections and their impressions from the objects around me that come from the blind sense mind (manas) and individualized ego (ahamkar). This is my second conscious step in allowing things to be as they are, thought and energy that has materialized due to my quantum interaction with that of which I observe. Finally, I begin the distortion correction process through detachment from all assigned meaning to things in the world I see. ’
Why do I judge what I think I see? I judge and interpret and call this seeing when it is not. Nor is it the Christed Vision coming from the Identity which I share with all of the Divine’s Sons and Daughters. If it is not True Vision, it must be a phantasm, an avidya-illusion, a false reality. This is due to the fact that my judgmental assertions and interpretations come from fear, lack, misperception, and blindness that distorts True Sight with regards to what is actually real. Today, I commit to seeing the distortions that come from judging, because in all actuality, I want to see things as they are, as the Divine Father-Mother intended them to be. I have tried to attack myself by judging and labeling and have only caused harm by doing so. In no way, whatsoever, do I want to look out trough the eyes of judgment on what is totally neutral and inherently pure, holy, and innocent.
I do not comprehend any of the things that my eyes and visual cortex see nor what my personal ego (ahamkar), nor sense impression recorder mind (manas), has told me these things are. Vibrations of thought projection that came from my subjective, separative mind distort my understanding and full knowledge of what surrounds me in their apparent materialized and manifested state. Through my neutral, infinite, superconscious (intuitive) and discerning (buddhi) mind, I retract my thought projections, their impressions, and the strong obsessive fixations that drive me to project meaning onto these things, where there is none. This delusive need leads me into a web of confusion about what I think I see and its relevance to my life motion picture that I am creating at a given moment, either through my God-like Universal Intelligence or instinctual demonic egoic-subconscious beast mind polarity.
There is no way I can understand what my eyes think they see, when I have projected the shadow and dense cloud of judgment onto everything they perceive. When I do this, I am using my eyes and ego-ahamkar to project miscreations of thought waves, coming from vritti-fluctuations in my brain. There is no way I can understand what is filtered through my eyes to the visual cortex in my brain, due to the fact that it can’t be comprehended, for what I look upon is not real. I will not waste my time trying to comprehend it. Through volition and the conscious use of will power, I release my judgments and unchain my mind from them so I can look upon what has been made manifest, know what it is, and thereby love it. Willingness is the key to unlock the prison of my split mind so only love emanates from me. Seeing without veils cast in front of my eyes, I clear the cob webs in the cellar of my mind and make a better choice. One for Love and Realization of Truth.
The thoughts I think with my separative, split, and fearful mind do not mean what the ego (ahamkar) tells me they do. Neither do the objects that surround me that I see with my eyes and visual cortex.
When I attempt to think and miscreate without being in communion with the Father-Mother, my thoughts that become forms are devoid of meaning. The thoughts with which I identify and call “mine” are phantasms and hallucinations. My True and Untainted Thoughts are those that are being extended with and from the Divine, Causal-Ideational Mind. The reason that I am not currently in a state of Realization, knowing that this is true is because my privatized thought waves have attempted to replace the mutually extended Thoughts I share with my Supernal Parents, the Primal Cause of everything Real and True. I use my will power once again, and the spirit of openness to truly see that my privatized thoughts mean nothing at all, and so I release and dissolve them, removing any perceived power I thought they had over me or anyone else. Holy Spirit Mother, I seek discernment and guidance now. I surrender my private thoughts and ask you to undo them, for I no longer want them to replace our mutual Thoughts. My privatized thoughts have no meaning at all, but using Thought for the purpose of creation or the act of extension happens with ease through my communion and awareness of my oneness with Divinity. This is my only goal today and everyday.
When I am upset, it is because my subconscious, subjective mind fragments misinterpret reality and are intruding upon Radical Right Perception, thus creating rifts and whirlpools of brain activity leading to massive hallucinations and projections out onto the world. The emotionally charged distortions are part of the reactive process gone haywire in the flow of my astral, spinal currents, spiraling down into misery of my own making.
I am never upset, nor agitated, anxious, or angry for the perceived reasons I think I should and can be disturbed because I am constantly applying effort to defend and protect my privatized thought waves. Why do I try so hard to give them justification through what my ego-ahamkar calls truth? When I take a step back, I can see that I demonize all things so I can try to validate my rage and thereby defend my use of mental, emotional, or physical violence. I pray for Realization, so that I can see the degree to which I have distorted the purpose of everything I have perceived through my ego-ahamkar by defining what I think those things are for. The only reason I have put so much time and energy into defending my distorted, dark emotions that stem from fear is because I ultimately wanted to keep my private false-self in bondage and chained to hallucinations. I consciously release my reactivity and all the misery I have miscreated from the depths of my subconscious mind-field. Mother Kundalini, Holy Spirit Fire, rise up, so that I may ascend out of the dungeon of psychological, emotional, neurological, and biological disturbance into the Bliss of acceptance, found in Pure Spirit and Light.

Divine Love, God’s Infinite, Unending, Undying, Everlasting Life and Love, is my spiritual umbilical cord, reaching from the One True Paradise Within, the Kingdom/Queendom of Heaven. This gold and silver cord carries my life force energy that supplies me with all the strength I need to give, extend, and return Love to my Source and all of manifest creation. My aura and astral energy body are empowered by the Infinite causal mind and body of thought and ideation, and from the astral mind and body comes the life essence that sustains my temporary body vehicle and its sense-mind interpreters of materialized form, trying to make sense out of an existence of multiplicity made by subjectivity and mayaic-delusion.
Though I have put my trust in what Jeshua (Jesus) calls “insane and trivial symbols” for protection and the maintenance of health and well being such as the prana of this world which is money, or in magic potions such as pharmacological pills, clothing that is supposed to protect me from the earth elements, having individual significance, the need to be accepted and adored, looking for pain relief in substances and sense pleasures, and in surrounding myself with certain people who I think will make me feel important, God Presence is my only sustenance.
The things on this list, which could go on endlessly, are what I use to replace Love Divine. I use these distractions to identify with the dense, physical body and with “special” love based on conditions I make. They try to glorify the ego-ahamkar false-self image. These substitutes will not sustain me, nor help me remember the Paradise Oneness, I in truth never left.
Avidya-illusions do not deserve my faith. Only the unchangeable, Infinite Love of Divinity should receive my full attention and desire. I will stop ruminating on illusions and false remedies that bring empty promises to pain, suffering, sadness, fear, and guilt. Only the individual mind can be sick. And it is my mind identified with Infinity that releases me from the idolatry of believing in gods of sickness, mental agony, and all forms of lack.
I am eternally safe in the Love of God Presence. No danger exists and I am not subject to any threats to my true peace and bliss. I need but choose my Source for strength and health and lasting calmness.
I will commit to two ten minute sittings today, where my prayers and dharana-concentration are centered on the affirmation for today. I will recite it, focus on it, let any thoughts that challenge my belief in today’s affirmation to enter my thought stream, and then allow the recognition of truth to dawn upon my mind that is linked to God Mind. I will not be robbed of peace and the awareness of mental rest. Restlessness is a sure sign of madness and investment in avidya-illusions that will not bring me wholeness, wellness, nor mindfulness.

If I but listen, and I be but still, quiet, and in a state of conscious mental rest, I will hear God Presence’s Voice and guidance which speaks to me throughout my entire day, every day, all the time as a manifestation of the One Reality of Cosmic Yoga-Union.
Today the static, loud, white noise, and ego chatter will subside, if I but let it and I will hear the One Voice for God the Holy Spirit Intelligent Vibratory Power, the Voice that never stops speaking to me. God’s Voice is an endless stream of Awareness and Love that gives me the gifts of peace, joy, and calmness, if I but listen, if I but stop the monkey mind from distracting me.
The Love of God Presence, of Brahman Immortal, of Father-Mother God is in constant contact with me, communicating the ultimate Reality of happiness, joy, ananda-bliss, and peace that is available, always. My ego-ahamkar attempts to the extent of threatening suffering and death that will be the consequences of not listening to it. The ego-mind tries to convince me that it is more important to pay attention to, a voice that in truth makes empty promises and speaks to me of a world governed by separation and confusion. What I seek is Yoga-Union with Divinity and my brothers and sisters, Perfect Awareness of Samadhi-Oneness.
In calmness, stillness, and absence from all forms of restlessness, I hear the the Holy Spirit, Divinity’s Voice within. This voice speaks calmly and never forcefully against my individual mind’s will. This other more destructive thought system that I tend to listen to is, as Jeshua (Jesus) describes it “frantic and distraught” and “without reality of any kind”. Today, I commit to calmness which brings true freedom, kaivalya-liberation, and to being completely unshackled in my ability to hear only Love.
I will center on today’s mantra prayer four different times for five minutes at a time. My goal is to hear and Realize that God Presence is reminding me of who He/She is and validating my True Self, Christ and Atman Self. I confidently embrace this thought of wholeness and wellness, and affirm that I am uniting with Divinity’s Will. The Divine desires more than anything, that I hear His/Her Voice, for it was given to me to be deciphered and heard.
I will go into deep silence and stillness. I will find the zero point of Infinity, completely opening my mind. I release all the haunting ghost images and afflicted thoughts that conceal my real thoughts and hinder my phone line to God Mind. I bypass the insane world, go beyond and transcend my riotous and frantic vritti-fluctuation of thought waves. I further affirm, that this world is not my home. By listening and opening to Divine Mind, I am seeking to reconnect to my True Home in Heavenly Oneness. This place welcomes me always, empowering me with the Current and Life Force of God flowing through me.
I will recite today’s mantra frequently, with eyes open when necessary, but closing them whenever possible. I will remember that by turning inward away from the external world perceived by the manas-blind-sense-mind, that I am praying for God Presence to speak directly to me. I tune out the flock of thoughts that crowd my individual mind and try to block me from hearing from the Holy Spirit who is speaking for God Presence in every moment of every day, all the time, outside of time. The voice for God will reveal the Light of God, the Altar of God Essence, and connect me with Christ Mind.
A Course in Miracles
1 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.
2 This course can therefore be summed up very simply in this way:
Herein lies the peace of God.
Here we are told that A Course in Miracles is a required course. What does that mean? After reading other teachers’ thoughts on this idea, and meditating upon it, I believe what Jeshua (Jesus) is saying, is that the practice of giving and receiving miracles, or expressions of Love/extensions of Love with the intent to bless others is our calling and our duty or dharma in life. Miracles are the means to heal and bring about the “Atonement” or the correction for errors in our thinking, for correction of the primal guilt we feel is our burden, due to having collectively chosen to dream a special existence separate and alone from God and the Sonship of Christ Mindedness. We are all called to be miracle workers, to help create a new world, to bring Heaven to earth and the manifest universe. Knowing what the Course calls our ‘special function’ is required of us, if we are to bring liberation to the dream world.
A Course in Miracles is by no means the only path and the only curriculum. It is part of a universal curriculum. Revelation from Divinity has been ongoing since the inception of time and space and the manifestation of materiality that occurred as a result of that ‘tiny tick of time’, that micro-second, where we dreamed there was something more than God, a power greater than God which we thought we were especially entitled to. Allen Watson from The Circle of Atonement wrote a booklet called “Seeing the Bible Differently: How A Course in Miracles Views the Bible.” In it he talks about a concept that I first was introduced to by Sophian Gnostic Lineage holder Tau Malachi – that of progressive revelation. What both men speak of is an ongoing process of Divinity speaking to mankind through inspiration and direct experience. What has happened, is that people through the progression of time have taken the Divine’s words and distorted them to fit their interpretations of what was being directly revealed. The aspect of revelation being ongoing, is a notion supported by the different covenants and the ‘canceling’ out of old agreements and notions of Atonement (for perceived sins against God – something that A Course in Miracles says is impossible). Jeshua Jesus came to reveal a new understanding of God as Father, an unconditional loving, compassionate presence that does not condemn. Old notions of condemnation, vengeance, and retribution were meant to be dissolved in the life and teachings of Jeshua, but his followers who interpreted his teachings did what people from Old Testament times did as well – projected their guilt and fear onto God, thus justifying that we still had to appease an angry God, be forgiven for our wrongdoings in order to escape everlasting punishment. The old punishment and reward system has been overthrown by teachings of A Course in Miracles. Jeshua says that the Father cannot be both Loving and one who seeks to punish through vengeance.
So, as Allen Watson argues, the New Testament thus came as a succession to the Old Testament, and works such as A Course In Miracles, came as a succession and new understanding of earlier perceived understanding on the part of mankind, a kind of correction and clarification of teachings that didn’t totally discard previously held beliefs, but rather built upon them. Tau Malachi talks about different ‘gradations’ of consciousness, of what he calls “the light transmission” down through the history and succession of prophets and prophecy. Enlightened beings inspired by God, came to hear His/Her Voice more clearly as consciousness has evolved.
So, for those who have studied A Course in Miracles, many know that there are many references to the Bible made by the author of it, Jeshua Jesus himself (if you believe that). Many corrections to earlier teachings are made and clarification is brought to other obscure teachings that he argues were misinterpreted. A Course in Miracles is only one form of the universal curriculum. There are many spiritual paths that can lead us to the awareness of the Home we never in truth left at all. The “Course” is not meant to be another source of inspiration to become fundamentalist about. It teaches however, that by studying it, it will speed up the process of awakening or enlightenment. But it may not be for everyone. But it is a valid path that works, though it may take time to break down old thinking distortions and to heal perceptions in order to become a miracle worker and help build the “New Humanity”.
In the introduction Love is spoken of as being the only real thing there is. The Course emphatically teaches that there are only two emotions one can feel, Love or fear (fear being an absence of Love). Fear is not real, but Love is. Nothing real can be threatened so there is nothing to fear in truth. We cannot be harmed. Since the Divine is perfect Love, we have no reason to fear wrath or vengeance or final damnation of any kind for wrong actions or consciously chosen errors. We can atone and must learn to forgive, extending Love to all. Be at peace in knowing that nothing real can be threatened. You are Love and only Love. Mastery is fearlessness. Love is real. Everything else that stems from fear are just illusions. Since only Love is real, peace is a guarantee. Though we may not seem to feel peace, know that you may be in fear and we can experience a shift into “True Perception” and “Knowing” that peace is our birth right. We were created from Love and therefore since that is what our Source is, so must we be as well.
