"The world will change through you. No other means can save it, for God's plan is simply this: The Son of God is free to save himself, given the Word of God to be his Guide, forever in his mind and at his side to lead him surely to his Father's house by his own will, forever free as God's. He is not led by force, but only love. He is not judged, but only sanctified." ~ A Course in Miracles Lesson 125
I have watched the insistent nature of mind to look outside itself for the answers or help in some way. I have watched the immediate response to ask some one else if we do not have the answer to something. What this does, is it puts the authority into this world.
Our true authority is our One Father God, and it is Him, Creator of the Universe that knows ALL things and will answer our every question and give us our every need. He has given us a Voice that speaks for Him that is inside each of us. It is this voice that answers us the instant we refuse to look outside for the answers any longer.
What we are learning is that there is no authority but God. This means that we are to practice taking all our questions into our mind, where the Voice for God is, that we may receive the answer from the Source that Knows. If we turn to any one in this world for guidance, what we are doing is asking for some ones opinion. It may or may not be helpful for us at that time. It may or may not be true. Often times external help leads to more confusion and lack of recognition of the innate equality we truly share.
This is why the greatest focus must be on the cultivation of a relationship with our Inner Teacher. Our eyes must turn within, and our ears must be listening so we can move beyond our thinking mind to the Mind of God so it can offer us the guidance we need at any given time. This takes practice and willingness. But everything in this world does. So why not devote our time and focus to an area that can be of greatest service to ALL humanity and not just the individual self. When we have questions, we are not the first one with those questions. The questions are asked by every mind and can only be truly answered through the Indwelling Voice for God. Once we receive the answer there, we now have the answer and gift to give others who are seeking as we did. This helps us to save time for all the world. For no longer do they seek, but the answer is given from Spirit to Spirit to be experienced in the now. The answer that comes from the One Mind will be the same for all. Our Source is One, not different.
There is never a time where the Holy Spirit/ Voice for God is not instructing us. There are many times however where we choose to listen to another voice. This is what Mind Training is needed for. We are here to heal our mind through Forgiveness with the Teacher of the Holy Spirit, that we may undo all errors and awaken to the Truth of What We Are as God created us. Beyond this Holy Self, there is nothing and without this Holy Self there is nothing also. Therefore our only task is to remember our Holiness and to share this remembrance with all. In our holiness is our power, strength, wisdom, joy and purpose in this world. From our holiness we have FOUND the Kingdom of Heaven and are living in its Joy.
So if we are to "do" anything here, it would be to relinquish all judgement of mind and let go of ALL false identifications of self. It is when we become this clear open channel that we will hear the Voice for God teach us what we ARE. Once we know what we are, we can help save the world!!
Jesus told us that "These and greater things you shall do." He meant this. And it is very literal, we WILL do more than he did... not because we are greater than him but because we are equal to him... and together we hold the miraculous and eternal Power of the Universe that can be used to help all the world. What else BUT this do we want to be doing? What is more of a lofty calling then a Savior of the World?
I feel that each of us are being called. Each of us is answering the call and in our answering, all the Power of the Universe works for us and through us to restore us back to our Holy Innocent state of Mind/Being.
We are team memebers in the Great Crusade, our brother JC is leading the way, and we are following him from the Voice within. We need not look to his past teachings, but his current Voice. We need not ask any one else, but celebrate that we can learn and teach together.
I join you in this now moment. That we may turn away from the world and into our Mind. That we may hear the soft whispers of Holy Spirit and Jesus speak to us and remind us of what is True.
Our soul is calling us to remember and we are being given everything we need for that remembering. And so it is.
