Chapter 2 – The Illusion of Separation
a. The Reinterpretation of Defenses
When You are afraid of Anything, You are acknowledging its power to hurt You. Remember that where Your Heart is, there is Your treasure also. This means that You believe in what You value.
If You are afraid, You are valuing wrong. Human understanding will inevitably value wrong, and by endowing All human thoughts with equal power, will inevitably destroy Peace. This is why the Bible speaks of
The Peace of God which passeth human understanding.
This Peace is totally incapable of being shaken by human errors of any kind. It denies the ability of Anything which is not of God to effect You in any way.
This is the proper use of denial. It is not used to hide Anything, but it is used to correct error. It brings All error into the Light, and since error and darkness are the same, it abolishes error automatically.
True denial is a very powerful protective device. You can and should deny any belief that error can hurt You. This kind of denial is not a concealment device, but a correction device. The “Right Mind” of the mentally Healthy depends on it.
You can do Anything I ask. I have asked You to perform Miracles, and have made it very clear that these are natural, corrective, healing, and Universal. There is nothing Good They cannot do. But They cannot be performed in the Spirit of doubt. Remember My own question, before You ask Yours:
Oh ye of little faith, wherefore didsth Thou doubt?
This is a reference to Christ and the apostles walking on water. You have asked Yourselves why You cannot really incorporate My words.
The idea of cannibalism in connection with the Sacrament is a reflection of a distorted view of sharing. I told You before that the Word “thirst” in connection with the Spirit was used in the Bible because of the limited understanding of Those to Whom I spoke. I also told You not to use it. The same holds for expressions like “feeding on.”
Symbiosis is misunderstood by the mentally ill, Who use it that way. But I also told You that You must recognize Your total dependence on God, a statement which You did not like.
God and the Souls He created are symbiotically related. They are completely dependent on Each Other. The Creation of the Soul Itself has already been perfectly accomplished, but the creation by Souls has not. God created Souls so He could depend on Them because He created Them perfectly. He gave Them His Peace so They would not be shaken, and would be unable to be deceived. Whenever You are afraid, You are deceived. Your Mind is not serving Your Soul. This literally starves the Soul by denying Its daily bread. Remember the poem about the Holy Family which crossed Your Mind last night:
Where tricks of words are never said
And mercy is as plain as bread.
The reason why that had such a strong impact on You originally was because You knew what it meant.
God offers only mercy. Your own words should always reflect only mercy, because that is what You have received, and that is what You should give. Justice is a temporary expedient or an attempt to teach Man the meaning of mercy. Its judgmental side rises only because Man is capable of injustice if that is what His Mind creates. You are afraid of God’s will because You have used Your own will, which He created in the likeness of His own, to miscreate.
What You do not realize is that the Mind can miscreate only when It is not free. An imprisoned Mind is not free by definition. It is possessed or held back by Itself. Its will is therefore limited, and not free to assert itself.
The three things that crossed Your Mind, Which was comparatively free at the time, are perfectly relevant:
1) It is alright to remember the past, provided You also remember that Anything You suffer is because of Your own errors.
2) In this context, Your remark that “after the burning, I swore if I ever saw Him again, I would not recognize Him.”
“Not” was written in later.
Note, by the way, that You did not put in the “not” until afterwards. That is because Your inherent correctiondevice was working properly at the moment. The result is that You are not denying Me.
3) The story about Hinda. This was an excellent example of misperception which led to a totally unwarranted fear of a Person.
H’s story refers to a very young Child Who fell down the stairs when H had arms open in a welcoming gesture at bottom of stairs. For years afterwards, Hinda screamed upon seeing H.
The misstep which caused Her fall had nothing at all to do with You, just as Your own missteps have nothing at all to do with Me.
Denial of error is a very powerful defense of Truth. We have slowly been shifting the emphasis from the negative to the positive use of denial. Remember, We have already stated that denial is not a purely negative device: It results in positive miscreation. That is the way the mentally ill do employ it.
But remember a very early thought of Your own, “Never underestimate the power of denial.” In the service of the “Right Mind,” the denial of error frees the Mind and reestablishes the freedom of the will. When the will is really free, it cannot miscreate, because it recognizes only Truth.
Projection arises out of false denial. Not out of its proper use. My own role in the Atonement is one of True projection, that is, I can project to You the affirmation of Truth. If You project error to Me or to Yourself You are interfering with the process. My use of projection, which can also be Yours, is not based on faulty denial. But it does involve the very powerful use of the denial of error.
The Miracle Worker is One Who accepts My kind of denial and projection, unites His own inherent abilities to deny and project with Mine, and imposes Them back on Himself and Others. This establishes the total lack of threat anywhere. Together We can then work for the real time of Peace, which is Eternal.
I inspired Bob, an elevator Man Who took H down from Her apartment, to make that remark to You, and it is a pity that You heard only the last part. But You can still use that. His remark ended with: “Every shut eye is not asleep.” Since Your own Vision is much improved at the moment, We will go on a while.
Freud’s identification of mechanisms was quite correct, as was His recognition of their creative ability. They can indeed create Man’s perception, both of Himself and His surroundings.
But Freud’s limitations induced inevitable limits on His own perception. He made two kinds of errors:
The first is that He saw only how the mechanisms worked in the mentally ill.
The second is His own denial of the mechanism of the Atonement.
Let Us take up the first, because a clear understanding of the second depends on it.
Denial should be directed only to error, and projection should be limited to Truth. You should Truly give as You have Truly received. The Golden Rule can work effectively only on this basis.
Intellectualization is a poor Word, which stems from the brainmind confusion. “Rightmindedness” is better. This device defends the Right Mind, and gives It control over the body. “Intellectualization” implies a split, whereas “Rightmindedness” involves healing.
Withdrawal is properly employed in the service of withdrawing from the desert. It is not a device for escape, but for consolidation. There is only One Mind.
Dissociation is quite similar. You should split Yourself off from error, but only in defense of integration.
Detachment is essentially a weaker form of dissociation. This is one of the major areas of withholding that Both You and B are engaging in.
Flight can be undertaken in whatever direction You choose, but note that the concept itself implies flight from something. Flight from error is perfectly appropriate.
Distantiation is a way of putting distance between Yourself and what You should flee from.
Regression is a real effort to return to Your own original state. In this sense, it is utilized to restore, not to go back to the less mature.
Sublimation should be associated with the sublime.
There are many other socalled “dynamic” concepts which are profound errors due essentially to the misuse of defenses. Among them is the concept of different levels of aspiration, which results from real level confusion.
However, the main point to be understood from these notes is that You can defend Truth as well as error, and in fact, much better.
So far We have concentrated on ends rather than means because unless You regard an end as worth achieving, You will not devote Yourself to the means by which it can be achieved. Your own question enabled Me to shift the emphasis from end to means.
Question asked was: “How can We incorporate this material?”
You and B have accepted the end as valuable, thus signifying Your willingness to use defenses to ensure it.
The means are easier to clarify after the True worth of the goal itself is firmly established.
Everyone defends His own treasure. You do not have to tell Him to do this, because He will do so automatically. The real question still remains what do You treasure, and how much do You treasure it?
Once You learn to consider these two points, and bring them into All Your actions as the True criteria for behavior, I will have little difficulty in clarifying the means. You have not learned to be consistent about this as yet. I have therefore concentrated on showing You that the means are available whenever You do ask.
You can save a lot of time, however, if You do not need to extend this step unduly. The correct focus will shorten it immeasurably.
Papers will be very easy to write as this time is shortened.
The Atonement is the only defense which cannot be used destructively. That is because, while Everyone must eventually join it, it was not a device which was generated by Man. The Atonement principle was in effect long before the Atonement itself was begun. The Principle was Love, and the Atonement itself, was an act of Love. Acts were not necessary before the Separation, because the timespace belief did not exist.
It was only after the Separation that the defense of Atonement, and the necessary conditions for its fulfillment were planned. It became increasingly apparent that All of the defenses which Man can choose to use constructively or destructively were not enough to save Him. It was therefore decided that He needed a defense which was so splendid that He could not misuse it, although He could refuse it. His will could not turn it into a weapon of attack, which is the inherent characteristic of All other defenses. The Atonement thus becomes the only defense which was not a twoedged sword.
The Atonement actually began long before the Crucifixion. Many Souls offered Their efforts on behalf of the Separated Ones but They could not withstand the Strength of the attack, and had to be brought back. Angels came, too, but Their protection was not enough, because the Separated Ones were not interested in Peace. They had already split Themselves, and were bent on dividing rather than reintegrating. The levels They introduced into Themselves turned against Each Other, and They, in turn, turned against Each Other. They established differences, divisions, cleavages, dispersion, and All the other concepts related to the increasing splits They produced.
Not being in Their Right Minds, They turned Their defenses from protection to assault, and acted literally insanely. It was essential to introduce a splitproof device which could be used only to heal, if it was used at all.
The Atonement was built into the spacetime belief in order to set a limit on the need for the belief, and ultimately to make learning complete. The Atonement is the final lesson. Learning itself, like the classrooms in which it occurs, is temporary. Let All Those Who overestimate human intelligence remember this.
H questions last sentence, which She perceives as threatening.
The ability to learn has no value when change of understanding is no longer necessary. The eternally creative have nothing to learn. Only after the Separation was it necessary to direct the creative force to learning, because changed behavior had become mandatory.
Human beings can learn to improve Their behavior, and can also learn to become better and better Learners. This increase serves to bring Them in closer and closer accord with the Sonship.
H notes that this was written “served”.
But the Sonship itself is a perfect creation, and perfection is not a matter of degree. Only while there are different degrees is learning meaningful. The evolution of Man is merely a process by which He proceeds from one degree to the next. He corrects His previous missteps by stepping forward. This represents a process which is actually incomprehensible in temporal terms, because He returns as He progresses.
Originally, was “goes forward,” rather than “progresses”.
The Atonement is the device by which He can free Himself from the past as He goes ahead. It undoes His past errors, thus making it unnecessary for Him to keep retracing His steps without advancing toward His return.
In this sense, the Atonement saves time, but, like the Miracle which serves it, does not abolish it. As long as there is need for Atonement, there is need for time. But the Atonement, as a completed plan, does have a unique relationship to time. Until the Atonement is finished, its various phases will proceed in time, but the whole Atonement stands at its end. At this point, the bridge of the return has been built.
Note to H: The reason this is upsetting You is because the Atonement is a total commitment. You still think this is associated with loss. This is the same mistake All the Separated ones make, in one way or another. They cannot believe that a defense which cannot attack also is the best defense. Except for this misperception, the Angels could have helped Them. What do You think
The Meek shall inherit the earth.
means? They will literally take it over because of Their Strength. A twoway defense is inherently weak, precisely because it has two edges it can turn against the Self very unexpectedly. This tendency cannot be controlled except by Miracles.
The Miracle turns the defense of Atonement to the protection of the inner Self, Which, as It becomes more and more secure, assumes Its natural talent of protecting Others. The inner Self knows Itself as both a Brother and a Son.
The above notes were taken with great difficulty by H, and constitute the only series thus far that were written very slowly. When H asked about this, She was told:
Don’t worry about the notes. They are right, but You are not sufficiently Rightminded yet to write about the Atonement with comfort. You will write about it yet with Joy.
Aside from H: Last night I felt briefly but intensely depressed, temporarily under the impression that I was abandoned. I tried, but couldn’t get through at all. After a while, I decided to give up for the time being, and He said,
Don’t worry. I will never leave You or forsake You.
I did feel a little better, and decided I was really not sick, so I could return to My exercises. While I was exercising, I had some partvision experiences which I found only mildly frightening at times, and quite reassuring at others.
I am not too sure of the sequence, but it began with a very clear assurance of Love, and an equally clear emphasis on My own great value, beauty, and purity. Things got a little confusing after that. First, the idea of “Bride of Christ” occurred to Me with vaguely inappropriate “undertones.” Then there was a repetition of “the way of Love,” and a restatement of an earlier experience, now as if it were from Him to Me:
Behold the Handmaid of the Lord:
Be it done unto You according to His Word.
This threw Me into panic before, but at that time, it was stated in the more accurate Biblical phrasing:
Be it done unto Me according to His Word.
This time I was a bit uneasy, but remembered I had misperceived it last time, and was probably still not seeing it right. Actually, it is really just a statement of allegiance to the Divine Service, which can hardly be dangerous.
Then there was a strange sequence, in which Christ seemed to be making very obvious advances, which became quite sexual in My perception of them. I almost thought briefly that He turned into a devil. I got just a little scared, and the possession idea came in for a while, but I thought it so silly, that there is no point in taking it seriously.
As I am writing this, I remember that thing in the book about the demon lover, which once through Me into a fit.
Note spelling, “threw”.
I am upset, but the spelling slip is reassuring.
This morning We reviewed the whole episode. He said He was very pleased at the comparative lack of fear, and also the concomitant awareness that it was misperception. This showed much greater Strength, and a much increased Rightmindedness. This is because defenses are now being used much better, on behalf of Truth more than error, though not completely so.
The weaker use of misprojection is shown by My recognition that it can’t really be that way, which became possible as soon as denial was applied against error, not Truth. This permitted a much greater awareness of alternative interpretations.
It was also explained “Remember the section in Letters from the Scattered Brotherhood You read last evening about ’Hold fast’, and please do so.”
The shift to the passive form instead of “He also explained” should be noted. This is an expression of fear.
Note made on 11/15/1965 by H regarding B’s remark concerning top of p.5, 11/13/1965: Yes, but I doubt if it says this is inevitable. It may entail more miswill than We think. The above may have been too passively interpreted. Note that B did not ask My will regarding same. If He had, He would have felt better.
You know that when defenses are disrupted there is a period of real disorientation, accompanied by fear, guilt, and usually vacillations between anxiety and depression. This process is different only in that defenses are not being disrupted, but reinterpreted, even though it may be experienced as the same thing.
In the reinterpretation of defenses, they are not disrupted but their use for attack is lost. Since this means they can be used only one way, they became much stronger, and much more dependable. They no longer oppose the Atonement, but greatly facilitate it. The Atonement can only be accepted within You.
You have perceived it largely as external thus far, and that is why Your experience of it has been minimal. You have been shown the chalice many times, but have not accepted it “for Yourself.” Your major improper use of defenses is now largely limited to externalization. Do not fail to appreciate Your own remarkable progress in this respect. You perceived it first as a vessel of some sort Whose purpose was uncertain but which might be a pisspot. You did notice, however, that the inside was gold, while the outside, though shiny, was silver. This was a recognition of the fact that the inner part is more precious than the outer side, even though both are resplendent, though with different value.
The reinterpretation of defenses is essential to break open the inner Light. Since the Separation, Man’s defenses have been used almost entirely to defend Themselves against the Atonement, and thus maintain Their separation. They generally see this as a need to protect the body from external intrusion or intruding, and this kind of misperception is largely responsible for the homosexual fallacy, as well as Your own pregnancy fears. The socalled “anal” behavior is a distorted attempt to “steal” the Atonement, and deny its worth by concealing it, and holding onto it with a bodily receptacle, which is regarded as particularly vicious. “Oral” fantasies are rather similar in purpose, except that they stem more from a sense of deprivation, and insatiable thirst which results. “Anal” fallacies are more of a refusal to give, while oral fantasies emphasize a distorted need to take. The main error in both is the belief that the body can be used as a means for attaining Atonement.
Perceiving the body as the Temple is only the first step in correcting this kind of distortion.
H scalded hand, and looked for butter to put on. It occurred to Her that the Atonement was the cure. Burn appeared to be minimal, and caused little discomfort.
Seeing the body as the Temple alters part of the misperception, but not All of it. It does recognize, however, that the concept of addition or subtraction in physical terms is not appropriate. But the next step is to realize that a Temple is not a building at all. Its real Holiness lies in the inner Altar, around Which the building is built. The inappropriate emphasis which Men have put on beautiful Church buildings is a sign of Their own fear of Atonement, and unwillingness to reach the Altar Itself. The real beauty of the Temple cannot be seen with the physical eye. The Spiritual Eye, on the other hand, cannot see the building at all, but It perceives the Altar within with perfect clarity. This is because the Spiritual Eye has perfect Vision.
For perfect effectiveness, the chalice of the Atonement belongs at the center of the inner Altar, where it undoes the Separation, and restores the Wholeness of the Spirit. Before the Separation, the Mind was invulnerable to fear, because fear did not exist. Both the Separation and the fear were miscreations of the Mind, which have to be undone. This is what the Bible means by the “Restoration of the Temple.” It does not mean the restoration of the building, but it does mean the opening of the Altar to receive the Atonement.
This heals the Separation, and places within Man the one defense against All Separationmind errors which can make Him perfectly invulnerable.
The acceptance of the Atonement by Everyone is only a matter of time. In fact, both time and matter were created for this purpose. This appears to contradict free will, because of the inevitability of this decision. If You review the idea carefully, You will realize that this is not True. Everything is limited in some way by the manner of its creation. Free will can temporize, and is capable of enormous procrastination. But it cannot depart entirely from its Creator, Who set the limits on its ability to miscreate by virtue of its own real purpose.
The misuse of will engenders a situation which, in the extreme, becomes altogether intolerable. Pain thresholds can be high, but they are not limitless. Eventually, Everybody begins to recognize, however dimly, that there must be a better way. As this recognition is more firmly established, it becomes a perceptual turningpoint. This ultimately reawakens the Spiritual Eye, simultaneously weakening the investment in physical sight. The alternating investment in the two types or levels of perception is usually experienced as conflict for a long time, and can become very acute.
But the outcome is as certain as God. The Spiritual Eye literally cannot see error, and merely looks for Atonement. All the solutions which the physical eyes seek, dissolve in Its sight. The Spiritual Eye, Which looks within, recognizes immediately that the Altar has been defiled, and needs to be repaired and protected. Perfectly aware of the right defense, It passes over All others, looking past error to Truth. Because of the real Strength of Its Vision, It pulls the will into Its own service, and forces the Mind to concur. This reestablishes the True power of the will, and makes it increasingly unable to tolerate delay. The Mind then realizes, with increasing certitude, that delay is only a way of increasing unnecessary pain, which It need not tolerate at all. The pain threshold drops accordingly, and the Mind becomes increasingly sensitive to what It would once have regarded as very minor intrusions of discomfort.
The Children of God are entitled to perfect comfort, which comes from a sense of perfect trust. Until They achieve this, They waste Themselves and Their True creative power on useless attempts to make Themselves more comfortable by inappropriate means. But the real means is already provided, and does not involve any efforts on Their part at all. Their egocentricity usually misperceives this as personally insulting, an interpretation which obviously arises from Their misperception of Themselves. Egocentricity and communion cannot coexist. Even the terms Themselves are contradictory.
The Atonement is the only gift which is worthy of being offered to the Altar of God. This is because of the inestimable value of the Altar Itself. It was created perfect, and is entirely worthy of receiving perfection. God is lonely without His Souls, and They are lonely without Him. Remember the “spiritual”, a very good term, which begins with
And God stepped down from Heaven and said:
I am lonely – I’ll make Me a World.
The world was a way of healing the Separation, and the Atonement is the guarantee that the device will ultimately do so.
H request for special message for B: Tell B that His delaying tactics are holding Him back. He does not really understand detachment, distantiation, and withdrawal. He is interpreting them as “holding Himself aloof” from the Atonement.
b. Healing as Release from Fear
The new emphasis will now be on healing. The Miracle is the means, the Atonement the principle, and the healing is the result. Those Who speak of “the Miracle of healing” are combining two orders of Reality inappropriately. Healing is not a Miracle. The Atonement or the final Miracle is a remedy. It is purely a means, while any type of healing is a result.
The order of error to which Atonement is applied is irrelevant. Essentially, All healing is the release from fear. But to undertake this You cannot be fearful Yourself.
You do not understand healing because of Your own fear. I have been hinting throughout, and once stated very directly, because You were unfearful at the time, that You must heal Others. The reason is that Their healing merely witnesses or attests to Yours.
A major step in the Atonement plan is to undo error at All levels. Illness, which is really “not Right Mindedness,” is the result of level confusion in the sense that it always entails the misbelief that what is amiss in one level can adversely affect another.
We have constantly referred to Miracles as the means of correcting level confusion. In Reality, All mistakes must be corrected at the level at which they occur. Only the Mind is capable of error. The body can act erroneously, but this is only because it has responded to misthought. The body cannot create, and the belief that it can, a fundamental error responsible for most of the fallacies already referred to, produces All physical symptoms.
All physical illness represents a belief in magic. The whole distortion which created magic rested on the belief that there is a creative ability in matter, which can control the Mind. This fallacy can work either way; that is, it can be misbelieved either that the Mind can miscreate in the body or that the body can miscreate in the Mind. If it can be made clear that the Mind, Which is the only level of creation, cannot create beyond Itself, then neither confusion need occur.
The reason why only the Mind can create is more obvious than may be immediately apparent. The Soul has been created. The body is a learning device for the Mind. Learning devices are not lessons in Themselves. Their purpose is merely to facilitate the thinking of the Learner. The most that a faulty use of a learning device can do is to fail to facilitate. It does not have the power in itself to introduce actual learning errors.
The body, if properly understood, shares the invulnerability of the Atonement to twoedged application. This is not because the body is a Miracle, but because it is not inherently open to misinterpretation. The body is merely a fact. Its abilities can be, and frequently are, overevaluated. However, it is almost impossible to deny its existence. Those Who do are engaging in a particularly unworthy form of denial.
The use of the Word “unworthy” here implies simply that it is not necessary to protect the Mind by denying the unmindful. There is little doubt that the Mind can miscreate. If One denies this unfortunate aspect of its power, One is also denying the power itself.
All material means which Man accepts as remedies for bodily ills are simply restatements of magic principles. It was the first level of the error to believe that the body created its own illness. Thereafter, it is a second misstep to attempt to heal it through noncreative agents. It does not follow, however, that the application of these very weak corrective devices are evil. Sometimes the illness has sufficiently great a hold over an Individual’s Mind to render Him inaccessible to Atonement. In this case, One may be wise to utilize a compromise approach to Mind and body, in which something from the outside is temporarily given healing belief. This is because the last thing that can help the nonrightminded or the sick is an increase in fear. They are already in a fearweakened state. If They are inappropriately exposed to a straight and undiluted Miracle, They may be precipitated into panic. This is particularly likely to occur when upside down perception has induced the belief that Miracles are frightening.
The value of the Atonement does not lie in the manner in which it is expressed. In fact, if it is Truly used it will inevitably be expressed in whatever way is most helpful to the Receiver, not the Giver. This means that a Miracle, to attain its full efficacy, must be expressed in a language which the recipient can understand without fear. It does not follow by any means that this is the highest level of communication of which He is capable. But it does mean that it is the highest level of communication of which He is capable now.
The whole aim of the Miracle is to raise the level of communication, not to impose regression, as improperly used, upon it. Before it is safe to let Miracle Workers loose in this world, it is essential that They understand fully the fear of release. Otherwise, They may unwittingly foster the misbelief that release is imprisonment, which is very prevalent. This misperception arose from the attempted protection device or misdefense that harm can be limited to the body. This was because of the much greater fear, which this one counteracts, that the Mind can hurt Itself. Neither error is really meaningful, because the miscreations of the Mind do not really exist. That recognition is a far better protection device than any form of level confusion, because of the advantages of introducing correction at the level of the error.
It is essential that the remembrance of the fact that only Mind can create at all remain with You. Implicit in this is the corollary that correction belongs at the thought level, and not at either level to which creation is inapplicable. To repeat an earlier statement, and also to extend it somewhat, the Soul is already perfect, and therefore does not require correction. The body does not really exist, except as a learning device for the Mind. This learning device is not subject to errors of its own, because it was created, but is not creating. It should be obvious, then, that correcting the Creator or inducing it to give up miscreation is the only application of creation which is inherently meaningful at all.
We said before that magic is essentially mindless or the destructive or miscreated use of Mind. Physical medicines are a form of “spells.” In one way, they are a more benign form, in that they do not entail the possession fallacy which does enter when a Mind believes that It can possess Another. Since this is considerably less dangerous, though still incorrect, it has its advantages. It is particularly helpful to the therapist Who really wants to heal, but is still fearful Himself. By using physical means to do so, He is not engaging in any form of enslavement, even though He is not applying the Atonement. This means that His Mind is dulled by fear, but is not actively engaged in distortion.
Those Who are afraid of using the Mind to heal are right in avoiding It, because the very fact that They are afraid has made Them vulnerable to miscreation. They are therefore likely to misunderstand any healing They might induce, and, because egocentricity and fear usually occur together, may be unable to accept the real Source of the healing. Under these conditions, it is safer for Them to rely temporarily on physical healing devices, because They cannot misperceive them as Their own creations. As long as Their own vulnerability persists, it is essential to preserve Them from even attempting Miracles.
We said in a previous section that the Miracle is an expression of Miraclemindedness. Miraclemindedness merely means Rightmindedness in the sense that We are now using it. Rightmindedness neither exalts nor depreciates the Mind of the Miracle Worker nor of the Miracle Receiver. However, as a creative act, the Miracle need not await the Rightmindedness of the Receiver. In fact, its purpose is to restore Him to His Right Mind. But it is essential that the Miracle Worker be in His Right Mind or He will be unable to reestablish Rightmindedness in Someone else.
The healer Who relies on His own readiness is endangering His understanding. He is perfectly safe as long as He is completely unconcerned about His readiness, but maintains a consistent trust in Mine.
Errors of this kind produce some very erratic behavior, which usually point up an underlying unwillingness to cooperate. Note that by inserting the carbon backwards, B created a situation in which two copies did not exist. This reflected two levels of confidence lack, one in My readiness to heal, and the other in His own willingness to give.
These errors inevitably introduce inefficiency into the Miracle Worker’s behavior, and temporarily disrupt His Miraclemindedness. We might also make very similar comments about Your own hesitation about dictating at all. This is a larger error only because it results in greater inefficiency. If You don’t say Anything, nobody can use it, including Me. We have established that for All corrective processes, the first step is know that this is fear. Unless fear had entered, the corrective procedure would never have become necessary. If Your Miracle working propensities are not working, it is always because fear has intruded on Your Rightmindedness, and has literally upset It that is turned It upside down.
All forms of Notrightmindedness are the result of refusal to accept the Atonement for Yourself. If the Miracle Worker does accept it, He places Himself in the position to recognize that Those Who need to be healed are simply Those Who have not done so. The reason why You felt the vast radiation range of Your own inner illumination is because You were aware that Your Rightmindedness is healing.
The sole responsibility of the Miracle Worker is to accept Atonement Himself. This means that He knows that Mind is the only creative level, and that its errors are healed by the Atonement. Once He accepts this, His Mind can only heal. By denying His Mind any destructive potential, and reinstating its purely constructive powers, He has placed Himself in a position where He can undo the level confusion of Others. The message which He then gives to Others is the Truth that Their Minds are really similarly constructive, and that Their own miscreations cannot hurt Them. By affirming this, the Miracle Worker releases the Mind from overevaluating Its own learning device or the body, and restores the Mind to Its True position as the Learner. It should be reemphasized that the body does not learn, any more than it creates. As a learning device, it merely follows the Learner, but if it is falsely endowed with Self initiative, it becomes a serious obstruction to the learning it should facilitate.
Only the Mind is capable of illumination. The Soul is already illuminated, and the body in itself is too dense. The Mind, however, can bring Its own illumination to the body by recognizing that density is the opposite of intelligence, and therefore unamenable to independent learning. It is, however, easily brought into alignment with a Mind Which has learned to look beyond density toward Light.
Corrective learning always begins with awakening the Spiritual Eye, and turning away from belief in physical sight. The reason this entails fear is because Man is afraid of what His Spiritual Eye will see, which was why He closed It in the first place. We said before that the Spiritual Eye cannot see error, and is capable only of looking beyond it to the defense of Atonement. There is no doubt that the Spiritual Eye does produce extreme discomfort by what It sees. The thing that Man forgets is that the discomfort is not the final outcome of its perception. When the Spiritual Eye is permitted to look upon the defilement of the Altar, It also looks immediately toward Atonement. Nothing which the Spiritual Eye perceives can induce fear. Everything that results from accurate spiritual awareness merely is channelized toward correction. Discomfort is aroused only to bring the need to correct forcibly into awareness.
What the physical eye sees is not corrective, nor can it be corrected by any device which can be physically seen. As long as a Man believes in what His physical sight tells Him, All His corrective behavior will be misdirected. The reason why the real Vision is obscured is because Man cannot endure to see His own defiled Altar. But since the Altar has been defiled, this fact becomes doubly dangerous unless it is perceived. This perception is totally nonthreatening because of the Atonement. The fear of healing arises in the end from an unwillingness to accept the unequivocal fact that healing is necessary. The fear arises because of the necessary willingness to look at what Man has done to Himself.
Healing was an ability which was lent to Man after the Separation, before which it was completely unnecessary. Like All aspects of the spacetime belief, healing ability is temporary. However, as long as time persists, healing remains among the stronger human protections. This is because healing always rests on charity, and charity is a way of perceiving the True perfection of Another, even if He cannot perceive it Himself. Most of the loftier concepts of which Man is capable now are timedependent. Charity is really a weaker reflection of a much more powerful loveencompassment, which is far beyond any form of charity that Man can conceive of as yet. Charity is essential to Rightmindedness, in the limited sense to which Rightmindedness can now be attained. Charity is a way of looking at Another as if He had already gone far beyond His actual accomplishment in time. Since His own thinking is faulty, He cannot see the Atonement Himself or He would have no need for charity at all. The charity which is accorded Him is both an acknowledgment that He is weak, and a recognition that He could be stronger. The way in which both of these beliefs are stated clearly implies their dependence on time, making it quite apparent that charity lies within the framework of human limitations, though toward the higher levels.
We said before, twice in fact, that only Revelation transcends time. The Miracle, as an expression of True human charity, can only shorten it a best. It must be understood, however, that whenever a Man offers a Miracle to Another, He is shortening the suffering of Both. This introduces a correction into the Record, which corrects retroactively as well as progressively.
c. Fear as Lack of Love
You and B Both believe that “being afraid” is involuntary. But I have told You many times that only constructive acts should be involuntary. We said that Christcontrol can take over Everything that doesn’t matter, and Christguidance can direct Everything that does, if You so will.
Fear cannot be Christcontrolled, but it can be Selfcontrolled. Fear is always associated with what does not matter. It prevents Me from controlling it. The correction is therefore a matter of Your will, because its presence shows that You have raised the unimportant to a higher level than it warrants. You have thus brought it under Your will, where it does not belong. This means You feel responsible for it. The level confusion here is perfectly obvious.
The reason that I cannot control fear for You is that You are attempting to raise to the Mind level the proper content of the lowerorder Reality. I do not foster level confusion, but You can will to correct it.
You would not tolerate insane behavior on Your part, and would hardly advance the excuse that You could not help it. Why should You tolerate insane thinking? There is a fallacy here You would do well to look at clearly.
You Both believe that You are responsible for what You do, but not for what You think. The Truth is that You are responsible for what You think, because it is only at this level that You can exercise choice. What You do comes from what You think. You cannot separate the Truth by giving autonomy to Your behavior. This is controlled by Me automatically, as soon as You place what You think under My guidance.
Whenever You are afraid, it is a sure sign that You have allowed Your Mind to miscreate, that is, have not allowed Me to guide it. It is pointless to believe that controlling the outcome of misthought can result in real healing. When You are fearful, You have willed wrongly. This is why You feel You are responsible for it.
You must change Your Mind, not Your behavior, and this is a matter of will. You do not need guidance except at the mindlevel. Correction belongs only at the level where creation is possible. The term does not really mean Anything at the symptomlevel, where it cannot work.
The correction of fear is Your responsibility. When You ask for release from fear, You are implying that it isn’t. You should ask, instead, for help in the conditions which have brought the fear about. This condition always entails a separated Mindwillingness. At this level, You can help it.
You are much too tolerant of Mindwandering, thus passively condoning its miscreation. The particular result never matters, but this fundamental error does. The fundamental correction is always the same. Before You will to do Anything, ask Me if Your will is in accord with Mine. If You are sure that it is, there will be no fear.
Fear is always a sign of strain, which arises whenever the will to do conflicts with what You do. This situation arises in two major ways:
1) You can will to do conflicting things, either simultaneously or successively. This produces conflicting behavior, which would be tolerable to the Self, though not necessarily to Others, except for the fact that the part of the will that wants something else is outraged.
2) You can behave as You think You should, but without entirely willing to do so. This produces consistent behavior, but entails great strain within the Self.
If You think about it, You will realize that in both cases the will and the behavior are outofaccord, resulting in a situation in which You are doing what You do not will. This arouses a sense of coercion, which usually produces rage. The anger then invades the Mind, and projection in the wrong sense becomes likely. Depression or anxiety are virtually certain.
Remember that whenever there is fear, it is because You have not made up Your Mind. Your will is split, and Your behavior inevitably becomes erratic. Correcting at the behavior level can shift the error from the first type to the second, but will not obliterate the fear.
It is possible to reach a state in which You bring Your will under My guidance without much conscious effort, but this implies the kind of habit pattern which neither You nor B has developed dependably as yet.
Tell B that although He keeps telling You that God will never ask You to do more than You can, He does not understand it Himself. God cannot ask more than You will. The Strength to do comes from Your own undivided will to do. There is no strain in doing God’s will as soon as it is also Your own.
The lesson here is quite simple, but particularly apt to be overlooked. I will therefore repeat it, urging You to listen. Only Your Mind can produce fear. It does so whenever It is conflicted in what It wills, thus producing inevitable strain, because willing and doing become discordant. This cannot be corrected by better doing. But it can be corrected by higher willing.
d. The Correction for Lack of Love
After taking the first corrective step, that is, “Knowing it is fear,” You might benefit temporarily by adding another next step before going on with the corrective process. Try saying to Yourself that You must have willed not to love somehow or somewhere or that fear which arises from behaviorwill conflict could not have happened. Then follow previous instructions.
If You consider what the process really means, it is nothing more than a series of pragmatic steps in the larger process of accepting the Atonement as the remedy. From this viewpoint, the steps can be reworded as follows:
1) Know first this is fear.
2) Fear arises from lack of Love.
3) The only remedy for lack of Love is perfect Love.
4) Perfect Love is the Atonement.
The final procedural step 3) is inherent in the last statement 4). We have emphasized that the Miracle, or the expression of Atonement, is always a sign of real respect from the Worthy to the Worthy. This worth is reestablished by the Atonement.
It is obvious, then, that when You are afraid You have placed Yourself in a position where You need Atonement because You have done something loveless because You willed without Love. This is precisely the situation for which the Atonement was offered. The need for the remedy inspired its creation.
As long as You recognize only the need for the remedy, You will remain fearful. However, as soon as You remedy it, You have also abolished the fear. This is how True healing occurs.
Everyone experiences fear, and nobody enjoys it. Yet, it would take very little Rightthinking to know why it occurs. Neither You nor B have thought about it very much, either.
H: I object at this point to the use of plural verb with a properly singular subject and remember that last time in a very similar sentence, He said it correctly and I remembered it with real pleasure. This real grammatical error makes Me suspicious of the genuineness of these notes.
Answer: What it really shows is that You are not very receptive. The reason it came out that way, is because You are projecting, in the inappropriate way, Your own anger, which has nothing to do with these notes. You made the error, because You are not feeling loving, so You want Me to sound silly, so You won’t have to pay attention. Actually, I am trying to get through against considerable opposition, because You are not very happy, and I wish You were. I thought I’d take a chance, even though You are so resistant, because I might be able to make You feel better. You may be unable not to attack at all, but do try to listen a little, too.
Very few People appreciate the real power of the Mind. Nobody remains fully aware of It all the time. This is inevitable in this world, because the human being has many things He must do, and cannot engage in constant thoughtwatching. However, if He hopes to spare Himself from fear, there are some things He must realize, and realize them fully, at least some of the time.
The Mind is a very powerful Creator, and It never loses Its creative force. It never sleeps. Every instant It is creating, and always as You will. Many of Your ordinary expressions reflect this. For example, when You say “don’t give it a thought,” You are implying that if You do not think about something, it will have no effect on You. This is True enough.
On the other hand, many other expressions are clear expressions of the prevailing lack of awareness of thoughtpower. For example, You say, “just an idle thought,” and mean that the thought has no effect. You also speak of some actions as “thoughtless,” implying that if the Person had thought, He would not have behaved as He did. You also use phrases like “thought provoking,” which is bland enough, but the term “a provoking thought” means something quite different.
While expressions like “think big” give some recognition to the power of thought, they still come nowhere near the Truth. You do not expect to grow when You say it, because You don’t really believe it. It is hard to recognize that thought and belief combine into a powersurge that can literally move mountains.
It appears at first glance that to believe such power about Yourself is merely arrogant, but that is not the real reason why You don’t believe it.
People prefer to believe that Their thoughts cannot exert real control because they are literally afraid of them. Therapists try to help People Who are afraid of Their own death wishes by depreciating the power of the wish. They even attempt to “free” the Patient by persuading Him that He can think whatever He wants, without any real effect at all.
There is a real dilemma here, which only the Truly Rightminded can escape. Death wishes do not kill in the physical sense, but they do kill spiritually. All destructive thinking is dangerous. Given a death wish, a Man has no choice except to act upon His thought or behave contrary to it. He can thus choose only between homicide and fear. See previous notes on will conflicts.
Note: I avoided this term in the last series of notes intentionally, because it seemed too Rankian. Apparently, there was a reason why this Word should have been used last time. It is used in this section for a very good reason.
The other possibility is that He depreciates the power of His thought. This is the usual psychoanalytic approach. This does allay guilt, but at the cost of rendering thinking impotent. If You believe that what You think is ineffectual, You may cease to be overly afraid of it, but You are hardly likely to respect it, either. The world is full of endless examples of how Man has depreciated Himself because He is afraid of His own thoughts. In some forms of insanity, thoughts are glorified, but this is only because the underlying depreciation was too effective for tolerance.
The Truth is that there are no “idle thoughts.” All thinking produces form at some level. The reason why People are afraid of ESP, and so often react against it, is because They know that thought can hurt Them. Their own thoughts have made Them vulnerable.
You and B, Who complain All the time about fear, still persist in creating it most of the time. I told You last time that You cannot ask Me to release You from it, because I know it does not exist. You don’t. If I merely intervene between Your thoughts and their results, I would be tampering with a basic law of cause and effect, in fact the most fundamental one there is in this world.
I would hardly help if I depreciated the power of Your own thinking. This would be in direct opposition to the purpose of this Course.
It is certainly much more useful to remind You that You do not guard Your thoughts at all carefully, except for a relatively small part of the day, and somewhat inconsistently even then. You may feel at this point that it would take a Miracle to enable You to do this, which is perfectly True. Human beings are not used to miraculous thinking, but They can be trained to think that way.
All Miracleworkers have to be trained that way. I have to be able to count on Them. This means that I cannot allow Them to leave Their Mind unguarded or They will not be able to help Me. Miracleworking entails a full realization of the power of thought, and real avoidance of miscreation. Otherwise, the Miracle will be necessary to set the Mind Itself straight, a circular process which would hardly foster the timecollapse for which the Miracle was intended. Nor would it induce the healthy respect that every Miracleworker must have for True cause and effect.
Miracles cannot free the Miracleworker from fear. Both Miracles and fear come from His thoughts, and if He were not free to choose one, He would also not be free to choose the other. Remember, We said before that when electing one Person, You reject Another.
It is much the same in electing the Miracle. By so doing, You have rejected fear. Fear cannot assail unless it has been created. You and B have been afraid of God, of Me, of Yourselves, and of practically Everyone You know at one time or another.
This can only be because You have miscreated All of Us, and believe in what You have created. We spent a lot of time on this before, but it did not help very much. You would never have done this if You were not afraid of Your own thoughts. The vulnerable are essentially miscreators, because They misperceive Creation.
You and B are willing to accept primarily what does not change Your Minds too much, and leaves You free to leave Them quite unguarded most of the time. You persist in believing that when You do not consciously watch Your Mind, It is unmindful.
It is time to consider the whole world of the unconscious or unwatched Mind. This will frighten You, because it is the Source of fright. You may look at it as a new theory of basic conflict, if You wish, which will not be entirely an intellectual approach, because I doubt if the Truth will escape You entirely.
The unwatched Mind is responsible for the whole content of the unconscious, which lies above the Miraclelevel. All psychoanalytic theorists have made some contribution to the Truth in this connection, but none of Them has seen it in its True entirety.
The correct grammar here is a sign of Your better cooperation. Thank You.
Jung’s best contribution was an awareness of individual vs. collective unconscious levels. He also recognized the major place of the religious Spirit in His schema. His archetypes were also meaningful concepts. But His major error lay in regarding the deepest level of the unconscious as shared in terms of content. The deepest level of the unconscious is shared as an ability. As Miraclemindedness, the content or the particular Miracles Which an individual happens to perform, does not matter at all.
They will, in fact, be entirely different, because, since I direct Them, I make a point of avoiding redundancy. Unless a Miracle actually heals, It is not a Miracle at all.
The content of the Miraclelevel is not recorded in the Individual’s unconscious, because if it were, It would not be automatic and involuntary, which We have said repeatedly It should be. However, the content is a matter for the record, which is not within the Individual Himself.
All psychoanalysts made one common error, in that They attempted to uncover unconscious content. You cannot understand unconscious activity in these terms, because “content” is applicable only to the more superficial unconscious levels to which the Individual Himself contributes. This is the level at which He can readily introduce fear, and usually does.
Freud was right in calling this level preconscious, and emphasizing that there is a fairly easy interchange between preconscious and conscious material. He was also right in regarding the censor as an agent for the protection of consciousness from fear. His major error lay in His insistence that this level is necessary at all in the psychic structure. If the psyche contains fearful levels from which it cannot escape without splitting, its integration is permanently threatened. It is essential not to control the fearful, but to eliminate it.
Here, Rank’s concept of the will was particularly good, except that He preferred to ally it only with Man’s own Truly creative ability, but did not extend it to its proper union with God’s. His “birth trauma,” another valid idea, was also too limited, in that it did not refer to the Separation, which was really a false idea of birth. Physical birth is not a trauma in itself. It can, however, remind the Individual of the Separation, which was a very real cause of fear.
The idea of “willtherapy” was potentially a very powerful one, but Rank did not see its real potential because He Himself used His Mind partly to create a theory of the Mind, but also partly to attack Freud. His reactions to Freud stemmed from His own unfortunate acceptance of the deprivationfallacy, which itself arose from the Separation. This led Him to believe that His own Mindcreation could stand only if the creation of Another’s fell. In consequence, His theory emphasized rather than minimized the twoedged nature of defenses. This is an outstanding characteristic of His concepts, because it was outstandingly True of Him.
He also misinterpreted the birthtrauma in a way that made it inevitable for Him to attempt a therapy Whose goal was to abolish fear. This is characteristic of All later theorists, Who do not attempt, as Freud did, to split off the fear in His own form of therapy.
No One as yet has fully recognized either the therapeutic value of fear or the only way in which it can be Truly ended. When Man miscreates, He is in pain. The cause and effect principle here is temporarily a real expeditor. Actually, Cause is a term properly belonging to God, and Effect, which should also be capitalized, is His Sonship. This entails a set of cause and effect relationships which are totally different from those which Man introduced into the miscreation.
The fundamental opponents in the real basic conflict are Creation and miscreation. All fear is implicit in the second, just as All Love is inherent in the first. Because of this difference, the basic conflict is one between Love and fear.
So much, then, for the True nature of the major opponents in the basic conflict. Since All such theories lead to a form of therapy in which a redistribution of psychic energy results, it is necessary to consider Our concept of libido next. In this respect, Freud was more accurate than His followers, Who were essentially more wishful. Energy can emanate from both Creation and miscreation, and the particular ratio which prevails between them at a given point in time does determine behavior at that time. If miscreation did not engender energy in its own right, it would be unable to produce destructive behavior, which it very patently does.
Everything that Man creates has energy because, like the Creation of God, they or it comes from energy, and are endowed by their Creator with the power to create. Miscreation is still a genuine creative act in terms of the underlying impulse, but not in terms of the content of the creation. This, however, does not deprive the creation of its own creative power. It does, however, guarantee that the power will be misused or used fearfully.
To deny this is merely the previously mentioned fallacy of depreciation. Although Freud made a number of fallacies of His own, He did avoid this one in connection with libido. The later theorists denied the splitenergy concept, not by attempting to heal it, but by reinterpreting it instead of redistributing it.
This placed Them in the illogical position of assuming that the split which Their therapies were intended to heal had not occurred. The result of this approach is essentially a form of hypnosis. This is quite different from Freud’s approach, which merely ended in a deadlock.
A similar deadlock occurs when both the power of Creation and of miscreation coexist. This is experienced as conflict only because the Individual feels as if both were occurring at the same level. He believes in what He has created in His own unconscious and He naturally believes it is real because He has created it. He, thus, places Himself in a position where the fearful becomes real.
Nothing but levelconfusion can result as long as this belief is held in any form. Inappropriate denial and equally inappropriate identification of the real factors in the basic conflict will not solve the problem itself. The conflict cannot disappear until it is fully recognized that miscreation is not real, and therefore there is no conflict. This entails a full realization of the basic fact that, although Man has miscreated in a very real sense, He need neither continue to do so, nor to suffer from His past errors in this respect.
A redistribution of psychic energy, then, is not the solution. Both the idea that both kinds must exist, and the belief that one kind is amenable for use or misuse, are real distortions. The only way is to stop miscreating now, and accept the Atonement for miscreations of the past.
Only this can reestablish True singlemindedness. The structure of the psyche, as You very correctly noted Yourself, follows along the lines of the particular libido concept the theorist employs.
H: I still think it was the other way around.
Answer: This confusion arises out of the fact that You did change the order – several times in fact. Actually, it didn’t matter, because the two concepts do flow from each other. It was a terrific waste of time, and one in which I hardly care to become engaged Myself. Please!
Freud’s psyche was essentially a good and evil picture, with very heavy weight given to the evil. This is because every time I mentioned the Atonement to Him, which was quite often, He responded by defending His theory more and more against it. This resulted in His increasingly strong attempts to make the illogical sound more and more logical.
I was very sorry about this, because His was a singularly good Mind, and it was a shame to waste It. However, the major purpose of His incarnation was not neglected. He did succeed in forcing recognition of the unconscious into Man’s calculations about Himself, a step in the right direction which should not be minimized. Freud was one of the most religious Men I have known recently. Unfortunately, He was so afraid of religion that the only way He could deal with it was to regard it, not Himself, as sick. This naturally prevented healing.
Freud’s superego is a particularly interesting example of the real power of miscreation. It is noteworthy throughout the whole development of His theories that the superego never allied itself with freedom. The most it could do in this direction was to work out a painful truce in which Both Opponents lost. This perception could not fail to force Him to emphasize discontent in His view of civilization.
The Freudian id is really only the more superficial level of the unconscious, and not the deepest level at all. This, too, was inevitable, because Freud could not divorce Miracles from magic. It was therefore His constant endeavor, even preoccupation, to keep on thrusting more and more material between consciousness and the real deeper level of the unconscious, so that the latter became increasingly obscured. The result was a kind of bedlam, in which there was no order, no control, and no sense. This was exactly how He felt about it.
The later theoretical switch to the primacy of anxiety was an interesting device intended to deny both the instinctive nature of destructiveness, and the force of the power of miscreation. By placing the emphasis on the result, the generative nature of the power was minimized.
Destructive behavior is instinctual. The instinct for creation is not obliterated in miscreation. That is why it is always invested with Reality.
We have already said that the basic conflict is one between Love and fear, and that the proper organization of the psyche rests on a lack of level confusion. The section on psychic energy should be reread very carefully, because it is particularly likely to be misinterpreted until this section is complete.
It has already been said that Man cannot control fear, because He Himself created it. His belief in it renders it out of His control by definition. For this reason, any attempt to resolve the basic conflict through the concept of mastery of fear is meaningless. In fact, it asserts the power of fear by the simple assumption that it need be mastered at all.
The essential resolution rests entirely on the mastery of Love. In the interim, conflict is inevitable. The reason for this is the strangely illogical position in which Man had placed Himself. Since We have frequently emphasized that correction must be applied within the level that error occurs, it should be clear that the Miracle must be illogical because its purpose is to correct the illogical and restore order.
Two concepts which cannot coexist are nothing and Everything. To whatever extent one is believed in, the other has been abolished. In the conflict, fear is really nothing, and Love is really Everything. This is because whenever Light penetrates darkness, it does abolish it. This recognition is really the basis for the castration complex. The unwillingness to be seen or submit error to Light is spuriously associated with active doing. In this incarnation, this can take the form of oedipal involvement and concomitant castration anxiety.
However, in more long range and meaningful terms, the oedipal complex is a miniature of the True Separation fear, and the castration complex is a way of denying that it ever occurred. Like all pseudosolutions, this kind of distorted thinking is very creative, but false. The Separation has occurred. To deny this is merely to misuse denial. However, to concentrate on error is merely a further misuse of legitimate psychic mechanisms. The True corrective procedure, which has already been described as the proper use of the Spiritual Eye or True Vision, is to accept the error temporarily, but only as an indication that immediate correction is mandatory. This establishes a state of Mind in Which the Atonement can be accepted without delay.
It is worth repeating that ultimately there is no compromise possible between Everything and nothing. The purpose of time is essentially a device by which All compromise in this respect can be abolished. It seems to be abolished by degrees precisely because time itself involves a concept of intervals which does not really exist. The faulty use of creation has made this necessary as a corrective device.
“And God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son so that whosoever believeth on Him shall not perish but have Eternal Life” needs only one slight correction to be entirely meaningful in this context. It should read
And God so loved the world that He gave it to His only begotten Son.
It should be noted that God has begotten only One Son.
If You believe that All of the Souls that God created are His Sons, and if You also believe that the Sonship is One, then every Soul must be a Son of God or an integral part of the Sonship. You do not find the concept that the whole is greater than its parts difficult to understand. You should therefore not have too great difficulty with this. The Sonship in its Oneness does transcend the sum of Its parts. However, It loses this special state as long as any of Its parts are missing. This is why the conflict cannot ultimately be resolved until All of the individual parts of the Sonship have returned. Only then, in the True sense, can the meaning of Wholeness be understood.
The concept of minus numbers has always been regarded as a mathematical rather than an actual expedient. This is a major limitation on mathematics as presently understood. Any statement which implies degrees of difference in negation is essentially meaningless. What can replace this negative approach is a recognition of the fact that as long as one part of the Sonship is missing, which is the same as a million or ten or eight thousand parts, it is not complete.
In the Divine psyche, the Father and the Holy Spirit are not incomplete at all. The Sonship has the unique faculty of believing in error or incompleteness if He so elects. However, it is quite apparent that so to elect is to believe in the existence of nothingness. The correction of this error is the Atonement.
We have already briefly spoken about readiness. But there are some additional awarenesses which might be helpful. Readiness is nothing more than the prerequisite for accomplishment. The two should not be confused. As soon as a state of readiness occurs, there is always some will to accomplish, but this is by no means undivided. The state does not imply more than the potential for a shift of will. Confidence cannot develop fully until mastery has been accomplished. We began this section with an attempt to correct the fundamental human error that fear can be mastered. The Correction was that only Love can be mastered. When I told You that You were “ready for Revelation,” I did not mean that You had in any way mastered this form of communication. However, You Yourself attested to Your readiness by insisting that I would not have said so if it had not been True. This is an affirmation of readiness. Mastery of Love necessarily involves a much more complete confidence in the ability than either of You has attained. But the readiness at least is an indication that You believe this is possible. This is only the beginning of confidence.
In case this be misunderstood as a statement that an enormous amount of time will be necessary between readiness and mastery, I would again remind You that time and space are under My control.
Dictated without notes by H:
One of the chief ways in which Man can correct His magicMiracle confusion is to remember that He did not create Himself. He is apt to forget this when He becomes egocentric, and this places Him in a position where belief in magic is virtually inevitable. His instincts for creation were given Him by His own Creator, Who was expressing the same instinct in His Creation. Since the creative ability rests solely in the Mind, Everything which Man creates is necessarily instinctive.
It also follows that whatever He creates is real in His own eyes, but not necessarily in the sight of God. This basic distinction leads Us directly into the real meaning of the Last Judgment.
I am aware of the fact that You would much rather continue with the parallels involved in other theories of basic conflict. However, this would merely be a delay which We will engage in only if You regard it as essential.
e. The Meaning of the Last Judgment
The Final Judgment is one of the greatest threat concepts in Man’s perception. This is only because He does not understand it. Judgment is not an essential attribute of God. Man brought judgment into being only because of the Separation. God Himself is still the God of mercy. After the Separation, however, there was a place for justice in the schema, because it was one of the many learning devices which had to be built into the overall plan. Just as the Separation occurred over many millions of years, the Last Judgment will extend over a similarly long period, and perhaps even longer. Its length depends, however, on the effectiveness of the present speedup. We have frequently noted that the Miracle is a device for shortening but not abolishing time. If a sufficient number of People become Truly miracleminded quickly, the shortening process can be almost immeasurable. But it is essential that these Individuals free Themselves from fear sooner than would ordinarily be the case, because They must emerge from basic conflict if They are to bring Peace to the Minds of Others.
The Last Judgment is generally thought of as a procedure undertaken by God. Actually, it will be undertaken solely by Man, with My help. It is a Final Healing, rather than a meting out of punishment, however much Man may think punishment is deserved. Punishment as a concept is in total opposition to Rightmindedness. The aim of the Final Judgment is to restore Rightmindedness to Man.
The Final Judgment might be called a process of Rightevaluation. It simply means that finally All Men must come to understand what is worthy and what is not. After this, Their ability to choose can be reasonably directed. Unless this distinction has been made, the vacillations between free and imprisoned will cannot but continue. The first step toward freedom, then, must entail a sorting out of the false from the True. This is a process of division only in the constructive sense, and reflects the True meaning of the Apocalypse. Man will ultimately look upon His own creations, and will to preserve only what is good, just as God Himself once looked upon what He had created, and knew that it was good. At this point, the Will will begin to look with Love on its creations, because of their great worthiness. The Mind will inevitably disown Its miscreations, and having withdrawn belief from them, they will no longer exist.
The term Last Judgment is frightening, not only because it has been falsely projected onto God, but also because of the association of “Last” with death. This is an outstanding example of upside down perception. Actually, if it is examined objectively, it is quite apparent that it is really the doorway to Life. No Man Who lives in fear is really alive.
His own final judgment cannot be directed toward Himself, because He is not His own creation. He can apply it meaningfully, and at any time, to Everything He has ever created, and retain in His real memory only what is good. This is what His own Rightmindedness cannot but dictate. The purpose of time is solely to “give Him time” to achieve this judgment. It is His own perfect judgment of His own creation. When Everything that He retains is lovable, there is no reason for any fear to remain in Him. This is His part in the Atonement.
