As eternal and guiltless extensions of God, we fell asleep and dreamed that we are separate from our Source. We willingly imagined an entire thought system called the ego along with a world based on separation, time and death. But the mind that did this is awakening to recognize that it has been split and that it now desires to heal this separation, to undo the ego thought system. This split mind has two simultaneous dreams running side by side, just like two separate movies playing together. One movie is the ego’s world of attack and the other is the Real World of endless Love, healing and joy. We will see and experience the particular movie of our choice; the one we believe and therefore value. For most of us it is the ego’s projection, its movie.
Everything we seem to see and experience in either movie has no intrinsic value of its own. It is clear that we give everything all the meaning it has for us. Either we look upon it with fear or with Love. Everything including the body, others and the world itself are neutral. As we awaken we realize that the singular cause of everything we perceive lies in our mind. And that the effects, as the body and world, always remain together with their cause in our mind. As we undo our belief that there is any cause outside us that can affect us, and as we recognize that all cause is in our mind and genuinely forgive it, something quite profound occurs.
We begin to see that nothing external including the body is separate from us. We know that if we sense something either in the body or the world, then it’s quite literally in our own mind and not something that occurs externally to us. Therefore everything we seem to witness lives in our mind. And while everything is neutral of itself, it can only respond to one thing in truth. And this is our relationship with it. Are we relating to it from the ego’s fear or from God’s Love? It is in our relationship with it that makes it either part of a dream of death and separation, or part of a dream of awakening, life and joining. Both dreams or movies are playing simultaneously. And we have a choice in any “now” moment to decide which of these two movies we wish to experience a relationship with. The two movies are described here:
1) Through the Ego in my mind, I Make the World
While I perceive through the ego, there is indeed a body and a world out there. I may recognize intellectually that both the body and world are in my mind. Yet while I remain entrenched in this world, still valuing its laws of sickness, pain, medicine, economics, nutrition, diet, aging, and death, etc., I will not trust, know, nor demonstrate the Power of the risen Christ within. I will not trust Love completely yet because the central dream of death is still a reality within my unconscious values and experience.
In this phase, I still place the majority of my trust in the ego’s domain because I continue to abide by its laws, independently and apart from Spirit. Here, I may seem to espouse Jesus’ teachings, but I am not yet willing to shift my allegiance entirely to trust in only God’s Laws. I do not yet know and demonstrate that, “there is no order of difficulty in miracles”, because I must still believe in a hierarchy of illusions. Here, I have one foot in both canoes so to speak. I have one foot in Spirit’s canoe and one in the ego’s. I have not made an unequivocal choice to live out from the Christ within.
From this split-minded perception, I will still believe that God did create this world of guilt, fear, suffering and death. I still don’t realize yet that I AM (God). I will see God as outside myself and not as abiding within me, as me (and as everyone). Instead, I will continue to trust in what the ego sends my body’s senses to find in both the body and world. I will seem to witness in my body and the world, a separation between God and what appears as not God; because I do not yet realize through experience that both God and ego are in my mind. If they are in my mind, then everything they each made or created…is still in my mind and has never left its source!
I will still separate the body/world from my mind. I will not know that the body/world exist purely as relationships in my mind. And that it is never the body or world that is the problem because they are neutral. The source of either suffering or healing always lies in my relationships with them in my mind. I will not recognize that all my special relationships with the idea of form (body/world) must be transformed into Holy Relationships before true transcendence of form can occur. And because I don’t yet accept this, I will believe and thus witness to the ego’s belief that the world is left by death, instead of being transcended by Truth.
2) Through God in my Mind, I Co-create the World
As I awaken to the Christ, the one Power within, I see that what the ego made (body and world) initially as an attack on God’s Love, and what God Created, are both in my mind. If they exist totally in my mind, and if my mind is healed, then my relationship with them will be Holy and will emanate from this Love in my mind. Here I will witness the effects of healing the cause. As the one cause of all suffering is healed in my mind, then the symptoms as the body and world are also healed because they both exist in my mind and can never be separate.
This is when the ego-dream of suffering and death is transformed into Spirit’s dream of Joy and Life (Real World). Through forgiveness we quite literally switch movies, dreams. The ego’s central dream of death is the foundation stone of the ego’s cycle of birth and death, thus perpetuating the illusion of time. But how could there possibly be an opposite or end to God’s all-encompassing Love and Life? As I overcome my unconscious devotion to guilt and death, what then could I possibly fear?
And as my guiltlessness becomes known within, I have no more expectation of punishment and no more need of defense because I have accepted God’s Identity for myself, and not my own. As I embrace and embody this Love within, I allow the Christ to live through me as my Identity. And as the breath of Christ breathes healing through me, I am filled with knowing that I cannot be attacked. Love is living me now. And God’s perfect innocence stands to witness my certain invulnerability to all the illusory ego made as an attack on Love.
Here, as I courageously exhume the ego’s belief system and exchange it for miracles through forgiveness, my mind is healed. I recognize that everything I seem to see including the body and world are quite literally in my mind. I wholeheartedly offer my miscreations to Spirit to heal in exchange for healed perception. The results are that all I seem to see is healed as well. God is in my mind and everything that God in my mind sees – is healed. Healing of the cause in my mind must extend to healing the effects which are also in my mind because ideas leave not their source! I recognize that everything, the body and world are not out there, they’re not separate from me, but are relationships that live in my mind. And I choose to heal these relationships with everyone, the body, the past, and the world where they exist as one…in my mind.
I learn to look past that which my body’s eyes seem to see, and my inner Vision is strengthened. I gradually withdraw my allegiance to (trust in) all ego laws such as conflict, sickness, pain, medicine, nutrition, diet, economics, aging and death, etc. If I am still too fearful to trust only in God’s Laws, then I consciously invite Spirit to heal my perception… while I interact with others, take medication, eat, and balance my financial affairs, etc. I have no guilt in doing this; only trust that I will receive the miracle.
“Christ’s vision has one law. It does not look upon a body, and mistake it for the Son whom God created. It beholds a light beyond the body; an idea beyond what can be touched, a purity undimmed by errors, pitiful mistakes, and fearful thoughts of guilt from dreams of sin. It sees no separation. And it looks on everyone, on every circumstance, all happenings and all events, without the slightest fading of the light it sees.” W-158.7.
“Thus are his sins forgiven him, for Christ has vision that has power to overlook them all. In His forgiveness are they gone. Unseen by One they merely disappear, because a vision of the holiness that lies beyond them comes to take their place. It matters not what form they took, nor how enormous they appeared to be, nor who seemed to be hurt by them. They are no more. And all effects they seemed to have are gone with them, undone and never to be done.” W-158.9.
I see that when I perceive the ego’s world, its movie, it is born from fear in my mind. And when I perceive the Real World movie, it is born from Love in my mind. Here, I recognize that the ego’s world and Spirit’s Real World are both in my mind. As Jesus said, he already overcame the ego’s world for us, through his resurrection. He undid the central dream of death for us all. All I need to do is to accept it for myself…fully.
From this perception it is clear that the ego dream, its movie in my mind, is certainly not from God. While it is still a dream, it is not a dream that I dream with God. It’s a dream that I dream without God and that is what makes it a nightmare of separation and death. But as I look upon the glory of the Real World dream, I know that God (in my mind) did indeed create this World, this glorious dream of healing. God in my mind created the Real World dream of grace-filled joy and Love. A perfect reflection of the Love of God that I AM, that we all are.
