We believe that what God created can be changed. The separation was the detour into fear. This is a shared dream. Escape fear with Atonement — our errors never occurred. We mis-think we can usurp God. Miracles make no distinction in misperception. They distinguish between truth & error.
Atonement is a defense that cannot attack. The meek shall take over with our strength. Atonement undoes separation & restores wholeness of mind.
Atonement undoes separation & restores wholeness of mind. Everyone will recognize that there must be a better way. Spiritual vision does not see errors…it looks within. Look upon the world as a means of healing the separation/detour into fear.
All healing is release from fear. Something from the outside (like medicine) can be used as a compromise to reduce fear.
Fear makes you vulnerable to miscreations. Miracles workers must be in right mind, however briefly, to establish right-mindedness. Deny mind of destructive power but not constructive power. Healing rests on charity.
Being truly helpful praises God.
Fear blocks Jesus. I am responsible for what I think, because it’s the only level where I can exercise choice. Whenever you are fearful, you have chosen wrongly. The mind produces fear when it is conflicted. Fear arises from lack of love, and the only remedy is perfect love which is the Atonement. There are no idle thoughts.
Guard our thoughts more carefully. Choose the miracle & reject fear. Whenever light enters darkness, darkness is abolished. Focus on the error furthers it.
You did not create yourself. It’s egocentric to forget this. Retain only in your memory what is right & good. The purpose of time solely to “give you time” to achieve this judgment.
- There must be a better way.
- Within is meaningful…without is meaningless.
- Fear arises from lack of love, & makes you vulnerable to miscreation.
- Real purpose of the world is to correct our unbelief.
- See the world as a means of healing the separation.
- I am here only to be truly helpful.
- “Give you time” to decide to retain only what is right & good.
- I am responsible for what I think.
- There are no idol thoughts.
