CHRIST REALIZATION YOGA – DAY 57 (REVIEW # 1: DAYS 31-35)

DAY 57

 

Today I will review the following affirmations:

 

DAY 31

I am not at the mercy of a world I seem to see outside of me that appears to threaten me with danger, trying to inflict pain, suffering, and psychological and biological torture upon my True Self, Christ and Atman Self, which in reality cannot be harmed. All assaults and threats of harm come from my individual split ego mind. They originate from no outside place. The world I have made is not a perpetrator and punishing force. My individual mind is the cause of my subjectively experienced mental agony that I seem to experience in a physical body.  

 

I am not at the mercy of an outside world that can be remade and undone. Today, I will choose freedom over the shackles I have placed upon my self. I will repeat the idea for today throughout the day as well to take steps toward full releasement from bondage and self-inflicted hell and psychological-emotional fluctuations that seem to abuse me. I take back my projected dream film of attempted violence against my Christed Nature. I am not held hostage in this world. The stairway up and out of Eden’s Basement, the hell I made has a light shining upon it showing me the way out of my self-constructed dungeon. I come out of darkness and hiding, and break my chains of sickness, pain, aging, entropy, decay, and all forms of affliction, now, here in this moment. The light of truth is here to liberate me from my mistaken perceptions about where I think I am and why I think I am here.

 

DAY 32

The world I have come to know and recognize as being out there is my own projection. God Mind had nothing to do with it’s manifestation. I am beginning to grasp the Law of Karma, of cause and effect, that what I reap, I will sow. I can’t be at the mercy of the world that appears to be outside of me, because it is a manifestation of my own subconscious, subterranean thought vibrations that are dense and tamasic (darkening). I must want to escape in the world I perceive, to hide from the Father-Mother, to experience the delusion of duality, of opposites, or extremes, because I keep seeming to have experiences there instead of in Paradise Oneness where I still reside, though I am unaware of the True Presence of being there. The world is the effect of my ego-rebellion against the Father-Mother Awareness. It is an individual, self-created hell that seems to be filled with pain, suffering, dissatisfaction, destruction, sickness, and disappointment. These things, these struggles of what I call everyday life can be transcended through Divine Realization of my Christed Nature. To see that I am the Atman Self at One with the Infinite Manifestation of Spirit or Brahman, the Father-Mother Beingness.

 

I am responsible for what I see, hear, and experience out in this wilderness desert where mirages of the split mind come to play out dramas, comedies, tragedies, transient romances, and horror films in my head. All I have to do is to take ownership of the thoughts I project from my mind. If I made the wilderness desert, then I can leave it and dissolve it, because that is the only thing to do in a desert. To remake it into a garden of peace and healing. I Realize that I had a psychotic break from reality, where through an identity crisis, I convinced myself that I was no longer a Christed Son/Daughter of the Divine Lover whose embrace I long to feel again. How wrong I was. How enraged and deluded I let my mind become. As the one Christ Self, with all of the Divine’s creations, I am in a boundless state forever. The Child of the Father-Mother is changeless and perfect and is not the phantasm I have made him/her to be. That Child, who we all are is safe at Home in the Garden State of Being and is not where I decided to hold him/her hostage.  This Collective Child is liberated and unshackled.

 

DAY 33

I will now perceive the projected world dream, the maya motion picture of dancing illusions, in a radically different manner. I will gaze upon it with Love and with the Vision of the True Self-Christ and Atman Self and see only God behind the image of all things. Oh, Immortal God, oh Dao, oh Brahman Supreme, Father-Mother Allness help me see with spiritual sight.

 

When I look upon the outside dream, collective and personal, the dream of hell, as the Toltecs call it, I have the tendency to shut God out of the movie. I don’t see him with the body’s eyes. So, this day, I vow to look with Christ Vision and to see from a perspective coming from the Cosmic Vibratory Memory of God, the Holy Spirit, Fiery Desire Energy in my mind, adding new frames to the filmstrip being projected outward onto the screen of Infinite Light. There is another way to watch the movie as it unfolds and is projected onto the screen of time and space. I have been watching it half asleep and have viewed it through a drug-induced haze where my thoughts about it were not real. I have seen this movie as a slaughterhouse for the Collective and Christed Child of God. And so I Realize and Know now, that this outside dream movie is a setting where this Child escapes the hell it believed in. I detach myself from the dream movie, step back, pause, and see it not as a confining place of inevitable death, but somewhere the Christed Self of God discovers what has always been true, that he/she is liberated and is not bound in any way against his/her will.  

 

DAY 34

It is my choice whether I see shanti (peace) in a state of calmness or through chaos, distress, restlessness, or any form of perceived mental or physical agony, and so I choose shanti-peace instead.

 

When I see through the eyes of love, and am in shanti-peace, seeing the projected dream world not as a place where I am doomed to suffer, get sick, and die, but as an environment in space and time in which to be liberated, I Realize that, like a mirror, it reflects Divine Right Order instead of chaos and catastrophe. I Know in my heart and mind that shanti-peace, not a gore-infested battlefield, dwells in the dream movie. Through Radical Right Perception, Christ Vision, I will see that shanti-peace dwells in the heart-mind matrixes of all those who share this collective dream world with me.

 

DAY 35

My mind is a part in the one holographic whole Mind of the Father-Mother, Brahman, the Dao, The Supreme Immortal, Undying, Unified Field of Divine Allness. My mind is whole and in Oneness with this Divine Mind.

 

Shanti-peace must be born within my inner-most being. Understanding and Realizing this, I am now able to extend the shanti-peace I fee to my brothers and sisters in spirit, while I further awaken in this dream movie. The dream movie I am watching and am seeming to participate in has now been illuminated by the radiant nature of my forgiveness, and is shining my mercy back at me. Through an illumined perspective, I am starting to see how my delusional perceptions about who I thought I was, kept me confined hidden in the dark cornerstone of my egoic-ahamkar false-self temple, that was destroyed to be rebuilt. This temple is my altar to the Divine Mind, where I meet and accept the invitation to Union and Communion with my Source. I now can affirm and place credence in the reality of a shared wholeness among all living beings, forgetting not to include myself. We are all one, undivided, and are part of the holographic Mind of the First Cause of all that exists in truth and reality.

Shadow Figures: Seeing the Past in the Present/Taking Back Projections

Do you ever catch yourself responding to someone in your life in a way that you responded to someone from your past that you feel and think hurt you or deprived you of love and appreciation in some way? We all do, right? Why is that?

 

We tend to bury our pain and feelings of rejection experienced in the past or in childhood (this tends to receive a lot of flack). Then, we make people in the present pay for those buried emotions and even the grievances that form as a result of them. Shadow figures are talked about in Chapter 13 of A Course in Miracles, but not so openly in Course “Circles” or outside of psychological contexts. But this topic should be a more prominent source of discussion in my opinion.

 

I know that, in hindsight, I have seen myself being punitive or reactive towards people in my life in the present in situations where I really am responding to someone or something that person from the past said or did that I interpreted as harmful or hurtful. Again, we do this sort of thing all the time and are mostly unconscious of this behavior.

 

We may respond to our spouse or partner in a reactive way when we are really “telling off” a past lover, friend, or even parent. We need to become more conscious of when and how we project these images onto people in our life now. Much could be said about this topic, for it is a common problem. But really, how do we avoid making our friends, acquaintances, and loved ones “pay” for what we perceived as hurts or having been wronged in some way in the past?

 

We need to see everyone as guiltless. And we need to release the past. That includes recognizing grievances and pain we have stored in our minds and bodies. If we see everyone as innocent and as a Son or Daughter of the Divine, we see past “errors” or “attacks” we perceived had the ability to hurt us in some way. What we need to do is adopt a way of seeing and believing that we are invulnerable and cannot be hurt, not by people or occurrences from the past, not now, and not in the future either. The solution is simple, but seems often an insurmountable feat to try to accomplish.

 

We need to forgive. Everything. Always. That starts with recognition of how we keep allow ourselves to be imprisoned by people from our past, and see just how much we let that carry over into the present. It certainly isn’t going to be easy. And it doesn’t happen overnight. Sometimes we are going to blow up on someone we love, here and now, and it may take doing that to realize we are still chained to the past. Love and forgiveness. Practice it. Do it. Keep doing it. Free yourself and others. Do it now. And ask the honest questions before you feel like saying something volatile. Such as, what am I really feeling and am I extending love or acting out of fear of reliving the past in some way? Recognize. Release. Realize. Let go. Surrender to the now. And extend love consistently. You can’t go wrong. And finally, take back your projections you have superimposed onto people in the present, whether you know them well, or just have a casual encounter with them on the street or at work. It’s worth it to become more aware of how we respond to others. It is just one key to unlock the door to contentment and happiness as well as peace and acceptance too.

CHRIST REALIZATION YOGA – DAY 56 (REVIEW # 1 : DAYS 26-30)

DAY 56

Today I will review the following affirmations:

DAY 26
The thoughts of assault, attack, and intent to harm and cause pain and suffering are assaulting and attacking my state of shimmering bliss-peace, Santosha-Contentment, and sense of security. If I can be assaulted, attacked, in pain, and harmed then I am not in a state of security and am prone to danger and fear. It is my individual mind, the egoic-ahamkar, small and false-self that believes I can be assaulted, attacked, harmed, or even killed, due to the fact that this mind believes I have attacked and harmed my small self. In reality this cannot happen, because my True Christed Self cannot be harmed or be subject to dangerous forms of behavior and thinking and the Christed Self is all that is Real in the Divine Allness’ Primal Creation. This concept that I believe I can be attacked and harmed and that I am inflicting emotional and psychological, and even the possibility of physical pain upon myself is a Law of Mind that I need to understand and turn the tables on it. To see that cause and effect are this law and that what I think causes what I will appear and seem to experience while in this world drama that unfolds daily, and moment by moment as I choose separation instead of Yoga-Union or Communion with The Father-Mother.

 
I am beginning to realize and grow in the awareness that I always threaten to harm myself first. Again, holding thoughts of harm and intent to inflict pain of any kind towards myself and others in all instances entails that I believe I am in fact capable of being harmed or subject to pain and suffering, and that thoughts that stem from this belief are meant to weaken me. If I believe I am capable of being harmed and subject to pain and suffering, I am inducing a form of harm upon my false self, that is the only self that could experience such devastation. I am the Christ. The Son of God. I really cannot be harmed. I only think I can be and am in turn an individual body and brain that is suffering. When I do this or believe this in any way, a falsely imagined picture of myself tries to take the place of my Christed Nature that is in Samadhi-Oneness with God forever.

 

I must realize that it is the thoughts that I have in my split, separate mind that make me feel I can be subject to pain, the klesha-afflictions, and suffering of any kind. By changing and reversing my thoughts through contemplation and affirmation, I can prevent this from happening on a more regular basis and hopefully, always.

 

I can’t know who I am if I perceive myself as under a constant threat of intent to be harmed. As Jeshua Jesus says I should own the idea that “pain, illness, loss, age and death seem to threaten me” and that “all my hopes and wishes and plans appear to be at the mercy of a world I cannot control.” I interpret this to mean that I am safe, secure, and through my Divine inborn nature, I am totally provided for and am valued and treasured to the highest possible degree. Therefore, no self-created avidya illusions that I may seem to manifest can imprison me or strip me of my perfect protection from any perceived forms of danger or threat of any kind. He further instructs that I have attempted to surrender and give up the Divine inborn nature that is my treasure because I try to own and possess the world I my manas-sense-mind sees. I need not worry for God Presence has kept my inborn treasure protected and preserved for me. It is my truthful, authentic vritti-thought fluctuations in the mind that will show me what this valuable gift is.

 

DAY 27
My highest priority and prime goal is to see with Christed Vision, that of the Atman Self at one with Brahman-Father-Mother, the Indestructable God Mind Sight. I want to see beyond the densification of matter and individual bodies that are the product of multiplicity, beyond subjectivity and relativity and all the images of projected mayaic delusion, to the one light beam of Love coming from the Divine Source who makes all seeing possible. This is what I truly want – peace and Bliss Eternal. Santosha-Contentment is what I desire. Wholeness is my pursuit. I will clean the lens of the Witnessing Christed Third Eye of Intuition with objectivity to see innocence in all my brothers and thereby in myself. I will create instead of make. I will awake from sleep. Dissolve the power that hypnosis has had over my body’s attempt to see.

 

The Cosmic Vibratory Memory of God in my mind, the Holy Spirit Aum Vibration brings many blessings. It allows me to perceive with Radical Right Perception in the truest, most clear possible way. Today, I will tame and undo the ego-beast of animality and selfishness to see with the eye of Wisdom. I will dream a new dream. See a new world. Perceive the Primordial Creation of the One Divine Oversoul-Spirit or God Mind. Write a new script. Allow Divinity to Direct a different motion picture that isn’t driven by conflict, drama, and pain.

 

It is time to stop hiding behind the ego-body’s blindness that limits me from seeing the Divine everywhere, in my brothers and sisters and behind the veil of physicality. The Worlds of Light, coming from the causal-ideational and astral-energetic planes are there to be perceived. Through Witnessing Presence, I will bear in mind that the world my egoic-ahamkar mind has made will perish and is only temporary. It will disappear when I forgive and align with the Love of Supreme Spirit. The illusions of superimposed image forms will fall away when I turn off the film projector of the fragmented individual mind.

 

Christ Vision is the key to unlock the prison door that encloses me in a body. It is the other way I have been seeking throughout this exile in a material world. I turn within and remember what I truly want to see. I will extend only Love as I begin to see and witness and notice. I will observe through objectivity rather than be swayed to and fro by the whirlpool fluctuations of thought and emotions that seem to rise and fall, clouding my True Awareness of Oneness. Vision makes no real demands. It can only bless with Bliss.

 

I acknowledge and affirm that what my manas-sense mind’s eyes see is a mirror image of the identity I have assumed for myself. Through Realization, Christ Vision is the only thing that I truly need to embrace. I know now, through gnosis that the projected world I see with my ego-body’s eyes is a witness to the fear based self-image that I have manufactured and that keeps me in the dungeon of hell . I need to release this concept of who I think I am, and be willing to Realize who I truly am – the Christed Son/Daughter of the Divine Allness. Christ Vision and Radical Right Perception will be birthed in my mind as my separative egoic self-image is transformed by the grace of pure, untainted truth. Through such clarity of sight, I will gaze out upon the world, while looking inward to my True Self with love and the desire to share only love with my transformed perception.

 

DAY 28
My highest priority and prime goal is to see with Christed Vision, that of the Atman Self at one with Brahman-Father-Mother, the Indestructable God Mind Sight of Radical Right Perception. I want to see beyond the densification of matter and individual bodies that are the product of multiplicity, beyond subjectivity and relativity and all the images of projected mayaic delusion, to the one light beam of Love coming from the Divine Source who makes all seeing possible. Today, I will let go of all meaning I have assigned from the past about any given object or person, releasing preconceived notions and stories I have assumed in the caverns of my split mind that labels and categorizes all that I perceive, seeing with a Beginner’s Mind. Today I commit to seeing, observing, noticing, and witnessing in a wholly different way. Programmed reactivity and judgments must fall away when something comes into my field of vision. True and Radical Right Perception in the Holy Instant of Now is my pursuit. I want to be free of all slanted, jaded, and biased viewpoints that blind me from seeing clearly and truly. I will allow my buddhi-intellect mind to dissolve the world of the manas-sense mind conditioning so I can truly discriminate truth from falsehood. The real from the unreal.

 

Though I resist seeing in an alternative way, I now desire and vow from this moment and day forward to seeking freedom from past mental tape recordings of my individual, separate mind that distort my ability to objectively see truly. I allow Inner Wisdom, the Inner Guide, the Inner Guru, the Cosmic Vibratory Holy Spirit Memory of Divinity to give me illumined vision so that I can see the flickering light of Truth and Love everywhere. By doing this, peace will come and joy will follow. Love is All, Divine Mind is All. Divine Mind allows me to create through Christ Vision instead of make images through biased perception. The Radical, the Right, the True, and the Holy are forever Real and there to bee seen with crystal clarity. I release all limited perceptions of what I glance at, and see not through the definitions I have formed in the past, but through a Beginner’s Mind. Christ Mind in Divine God Mind. This opens me up to brand new, Radically Right Sight.

 

I open my mind that was once closed. I am no longer bound by the shackles of past labeling. I quiet my mind from the whirls and eddies of sound vibrations that try toHoly assert pre-programmed judgments about things I encounter in this world dream. All stories I have written about things I have encountered in the past will from this point forward be re-written through objective noticing, and simply observing, free from assigning meaning from the egoic-ahamkar mind that compartmentalizes everything.
I attain Radical Right perception today by wiping clean the individual mind’s preconceived notions of what everything means and see instead the purpose of whatever I gaze upon with Christ and Atman Mind. I allow the Good, the Holy, and the Beautiful to shine forth and illumine my mind this day.

I affirm:

 

The superimposed hallucination, which I call the world, acts as a veil covering the full recognition of the vastness and fullness of true reality, and contains within it the fear-based self-concept I have put belief in. My individual ego-ahamkar false self tries to cement it there and it allows this distorted image of myself to continue to manifest. My perception of the “mind film” projected world in this moment prevents Satya-truth from being in my conscious, witnessing awareness. I pray that the doorway that remains hidden behind the projection of this world reveals itself and I bring the key with me to unlock it. My True Christ and Atman Self can look past the manifested world I think is authentic, to the truly real world that emanates only the essence and presence of the magnetic Love waves of the Divine.

 

DAY 29
The Supreme, Transcendent and Immanent, Indestructible, Brahman God Mind is omnipresent and in everything that I see with my Spiritual Christ Sight. The vision afforded me by the reflected Son and Daughter nature of the Divine, Cosmic Father-Mother Source allows me to see beyond images appearing as form that I superimpose through avidya-illusion and shadow-dance projecting, to the One Light and Love that uplifts me into Higher Awareness.

 

The True Self, the Christ, the Atman, the Awakened One, fed by the nectar of shakti life-essence sees Brahman God Mind everywhere, while the body’s physical eyes see only shadows of the Light that lies beyond them. What I want to see, I will see. When I want to perceive through fear, I will see avidya-illusions of terror. Fear everywhere, fearing everything, and fearing everyone. When I want to see only Love, I will see Brahman God Mind everywhere blessing all things through the vision of Love. I want only Transmissions of Light, Bliss, and Peace and I will see and experience these when I open my anahata heart and ajna chakras to receive the magnetism and shakti that awakens the fiery desire energy of kundalini within my astral, metaphysical body and spine. Kundalini, the evolutionary energy within me, travels upward, Godward, within, in my True Self Nature, illuminating the highways of travel through this lifetime. It shines a light upon the darkness and hypnotic maya that the egoic-ahamkar mind has tried to create as a rebellion against Brahman God Mind. Forms appear as dense. But through Radical Right Perception, I can see beyond them to Love that made me. The Love that is omnipresent and omnipotent.

 

Surely Brahman God Mind is not in a tree, but the life force that animates the form of the tree came from a creative source in me and in everyone who perceives a given tree. That life force that animates form came from Brahman God Mind because we are co-creators with that very Divine and Primal Origin. God Mind does not create trees, but the life-essence within me, being of God Mind, is the same as that Spiritual Desire Energy. Since my essence is in God Mind and God Mind’s essence is in me, that of which I have created has some of that very life-essence that makes a given form possible. Shakti emanates from the One Creative Center from which all Real Energy and Spirit Life came from. All emanations of Brahman Father-Mother are radiated outward from the Primal Center, in the circumference of everywhere as One Unified Quantum Field of Potential and Spirit.

 

My creations are not God’s creations when made with a separate will by my individual separate mind. But the love that animates mass, known as the adamantine particles, comes from the common origin of Ultimate Love. The Wholeness of God Mind is a Hologram. And all parts are contained within the whole and the whole is contained in all parts.

 

I affirm:

I remove the veils from true seeing, so that the individual “mind film” projected movie I have manifested from the limited, small self I think I am. Behind these veils, Satya-truth exists untainted and undistorted. On the other side of each curtain I have closed across the window of my true Christed Sight, concealing the transfigured magnetism of love, that very love power illuminates my path of awakening with its radiant, great rays. I Realize now that the ahamkar- ego based psychosis and its agenda cannot keep me from being in Samadhi-Oneness with the Will of the Divine Father-Mother Syzgy. The Father-Mother is and will always be omnipresent and within all things throughout the expansiveness of eternity. My brothers, sisters, and I who are One with the Supernal Parents, in this holy instant of now, see beyond all projected macabre images of the individual, separative mind and acknowledge the Satya-truth that transcends all of those phantasms.

 

DAY 30
Divinity Mind is in all things I see because Divinity Mind is in my mind. Though I seem to have experiences generated from a split, separate, ego mind, the Cosmic Vibratory Memory of God, the Holy Spirit Creative Aum Vibration was placed in my mind the moment the separation from Divinity Allness seemed to occur (though in reality it did not), giving me the Illumination, Inspiration, Realization, and Revelation that I am still in at-one-ment with my Source. Therefore, I have a light to guide my seeing. To bring me Radical Right Perception or Clairvoyant-Clear Seeing.

 

Today, I can and will focus upon what is Real, the Truth that brings Bliss Unending and Santosha-Contentment. I will look upon a world forgiven and upon every person I see, meet, and greet, with the Eyes of Christ. Of True Self. The Atman. At one with Infinite Brahman Spirit, God Mind, that illuminates my mind. This Divine Source, is something my individual egoic-ahamkar mind tends to ignore and so I see the dance of shadows play out before my body’s eyes. This is only a veil. But it is glorious to know that I do get glimpses of the light that shines behind this curtain as there are holes in it and it is transparent in places. The light that comes through are the flashes of insight or satori that I get directly from the Mind of Divinity that goes by many names.

 

Today, I experience a shift in my awareness. A Divine Realization put there by the Memory of God in my mind. I am the One Creation of the Divine Father-Mother. The Christ. There is only Christ. True Self. The Atman. And I am that. As are all the people and life forms I seem to see on the stage of the world, the miniature model and set built by the collective ego scriptwriter. Though my set design seems to overshadow and hide the Original, Ever-Existing, All-Encompassing Divine design of True Paradise Creation, found in the potential of Energy, Thought, and Light outside the space-time continuum, I can remove this blinder set that I have built as a fence, by opening myself to Divine Realization and Self-Realization in Christ. I am Christ. In Paradise forever, with Paradise Everywhere. The dramas, tragedies, comedies, human romances, and horror shows that seem to play out on the stage my ego-ahamkar calls life, are really temporary delusions. And I can begin to see that they are only delusions by seeing through Spiritual Sight. Through the eyes of the Astral and Causal Bodies beyond the dense physical body eyes that I have used as a replacement for seeing only Oneness.

 

I never left the Mind of God and God never left my Mind. As mentioned above, the Memory of God was put in my mind to bring about a Remembrance of the One Truth that is True Always. I am One in God and therefore, seeing through Christ Vision, True Sight, I see that God Mind is everywhere in everything I look upon, because once again, behind the forms, are the energy potential and life essence that is Pure Beingness.

 

I will apply today’s idea often, ignoring concepts of ‘near’ and ‘far’ for these are avidya-illusions in the grand illusion, and see through the One Lens of the Christed Third Eye, the Presence of the Witnessing Observer. I will notice and gaze upon the One Light, that surrounds all form. I let the One God experienced in many ways, to Reveal Him and Her Self in all things, but not as all things, for my God Transcends all things that appear to be outside of me. I let Paradise Return. Oneness come. Bliss come. As I concentrate through dharana and meditate through dyana, I will see the One Singularity Everywhere.

 

I affirm:

Through sanity and even-mindedness, through Gnosis-Knowledge, I Realize that I am not fragmented and cut off from the Entirety of the Allness that exists in everything that has “Life”. I never lost the Gnosis-Knowledge, the Divine Realization of my unchangeable identity even though I have dissociated from it. The Divine Mind has preserved that true essence of Who I am in Its Emanation of Unending Thoughts. I am contained within the Macrocosmic Wholeness of those Thoughts and energetic pulsations and will always be, forever, in Yoga-Union with the Divine Mind of the Father-Mother.

How Will You Use the Power of Your Mind – To Extend Love, or to Project Anger?

Our minds are inherently powerful. That is because our minds are One with Divinity’s One Mind. We either extend or project what is within outwards. It is so easy to ‘hurl’ out onto other people or into the world we think we are seeing what we don’t like about ourselves, what we feel guilty about (especially this), or what angers us. Our egos, the puppet masters behind the primal guilt we all carry around within us, think they can free the split mind from torment and the perceived threat of punishment from the Divine Source, we think we ‘threw away’ in the act of separating from that Source, by projecting out the ugliness we are ashamed of.

 

Our True Nature is to extend Love. Projection is the opposite of that. Through the human condition, we crucify ourselves, fear attack from the Divine for what we thought we did to offend that Source, and thereby seek to be free of guilt and that fear, by projecting onto others what we feel guilty about. Primal guilt has everything to do with projection. We want to be free of what causes us to suffer, so in an attempt to get rid of the cause of our suffering, we make others pay and the world too. We project because we think we lack something and need to take it back from others. What we really feel we lack is the Love of the Divine. So, we compensate.

 

When we compensate, we do so neurotically, and it always leads to seeing what we want to disown ‘out there’, as I said, whether in others or in the world as a whole. It is important to keep in mind that the ego mind has a malevolent nature to it. It is out for its own good and has an authority problem. It thinks you are the ego and it thinks it created you, instead of you being created by the Divine. That is part of the root of the underlying problem which causes the ego mind (individual false-self) to mis-create.

 

The mind always expresses outwardly what is within. So, it will either project or extend. Extension is an act of creating from or seeing through the eyes of Love. If we feel Love at the core of who we are, we are going to Love others and see the inherent, eternal good in them. We see their innocence when we perceive ourselves to be innocent as opposed to feeling guilty deep down in our psyche. If projection is throwing away something we don’t want, extension is sharing something we do want and what we really are, Love.

 

Projection always leads to anger and is a form of attack. Extension comes from contentment, trust, and inner peace. Extension comes from knowing who we are. The offspring of the Divine. If extension is the sharing of our True Nature, then projection is the attempt to be free once and for all from our false nature and thereby all threats of punishment we think we deserve for having ‘attempted’ to usurp the power of the Divine and be special, or our own creator. This desire to be our own maker, once again is called the authority problem in A Course in Miracles. 

 

What ultimately will create the good, the holy, and the beautiful? The act of extension. Or anything that comes from Love and abundance (which we naturally want to share with others). Anything that comes from fear will ultimately lead to projection because we are acting out of lack or a feeling of scarcity. When we feel empty, we attack and try to get what we think we lost or need in order to be happy.  When we feel whole, we see only wholeness in others, because ultimately we are all one. Knowing this brings union and communion with others, a much more preferred state to be in. True Love doesn’t cause us to suffer, but fear will always lead to physical and emotional suffering of some kind that becomes too much to bear, so we will always try to get rid of it by projecting. We need to take responsibility for our ego, the part of our split mind that likes to project error, and give our miscreations over to our Higher Self to be undone. As A Course in Miracles says, “our ego can be forgotten at any time.”

 

As the author of A Course in Miracles says in Chapter 6 Section 1, The Message of the Crucifixion, “teach only love, for that is what you are.” Knowing that is the key to doing that. If you can Love, even when you are being persecuted, extension naturally follows and all temptations to attack out of anger are dissolved and released. This is True Power. Know it. Be it. Share it. This is the key to happiness and lasting joy.

 

TAKE BACK YOUR POWER: YOU ARE NOT A VICTIM OF THE WORLD YOU SEE

Why do we give the world so much power? Why do we let it dictate how we feel, react, think, and do to the extent that we do? According to the philosophy and teachings of A Course In Miracles, it is because we project our guilt over having chosen to separate from the Divine in that “tiny tick of time” – an instant of forgetfulness, where we thought there was something better than and more appealing than the Bliss of Heaven.

 

With feelings of guilt comes the fear of punishment – the expectation that we will be punished. The world is designed that way, to constantly torment us as it seems to pose threats and danger constantly. We fear attack and annihilation. Not to mention we have been programmed to believe by so much of the religious thinking that exists, that we are in fact damned for being ‘fallen’. According to A Course in Miracles, this is simply not true. We are merely dreaming of exile, ‘asleep in the grass’ in the garden of paradise as teacher Robert Perry says, never having left home, but nonetheless asleep, having a nightmare that is the result of projection of our guilt.

 

We think the world is responsible for our pain, our suffering, our sickness, our despair, our feelings of lack, and all forms of unhappiness. This is projection. Blaming something outside of ourselves, when in fact, the collective whole of created minds, decided that it would be great to ‘leave the garden’ (no, we didn’t get kicked out – at least not according to A Course In Miracles and other new revelations). We give the world so much power. We throw away the function of causation. Since we are One in Mind with the Divine and share in the thoughts and extension of Love, in reality, but convinced otherwise by the illusions we manufacture, we can never be separate, in truth, but we have the inclinations to try to make it on our own in a scary world that we think is out to get us. Because we feel guilty, we think the Divine is out to get us and that the manifested screen of the world we think we see, is really reflecting back a hostile force that has to punish us, so we get what we think we deserve. Primordial guilt is the cause of our fear of punishment and destruction by the Divine. We set up and construct situations that seem to be threats to our safety and well-being all so the ‘ego’ thought system can have its revenge. That ego thought system projects all our guilt onto the world and God. Fear runs our life.

 

So much could be said about this topic. But we must and need to take back our power, through forgiveness and trust that we are innately good, and that we in truth could never be harmed, not by the Divine, and not by the world. These are illusions we need to surrender. We are cause of our experiences, not at the effect of the world or anything else. Through the power of causation, we can dream a new world into existence and be empowered to extend and create, rather than ‘make’ a dream of hell, where every one seems to be scurrying about, trying to escape wrath and punishment. The separation was just an illusion that lasted but a micro-second. It was terrifying. But the good news is that the Holy Spirit was planted in our minds the moment the split and fragmentation from wholeness seemed to happen. The Divine gave us that grace. The script is written to lead us back to the place we never left. We have the power to influence how quickly that will happen in our mind’s eye. We have so much power and potential. We need to take it back, and stop giving the projected world so much influence over us. This is a topic that requires much more deliberation and reflection. For now, we will just ponder that we can dream a new life and create a new world order, in which we are free from guilt. Forgiveness is the key. We must forgive ourselves, others, the Divine, and the world, that is not really out there at all anyway.  Remember, it is a projection of our minds. It is time to wake up from the nightmare we have created and realize we have the power to change what we see and experience. Nothing outside of us has the power to determine who we are, how we feel, what we see, nor what we think. We are One with Divinity, not separate and at the mercy of the world we think is out to get us.
