Lesson 190 I choose the joy of God instead of pain.
Pain is a wrong perspective. ²When it is experienced in any form, it is a proof of self-deception. ³It is not a fact at all. ⁴There is no form it takes that will not disappear if seen aright. ⁵For pain proclaims God cruel. ⁶How could it be real in any form? ⁷It witnesses to God the Father’s hatred of His Son, the sinfulness He sees in him, and His insane desire for revenge and death. Can such projections be attested to? ²Can they be anything but wholly false? ³Pain is but witness to the Son’s mistakes in what he thinks he is. ⁴It is a dream of fierce retaliation for a crime that could not be committed; for attack on what is wholly unassailable. ⁵It is a nightmare of abandonment by an Eternal Love, which could not leave the Son whom It created out of love. Pain is a sign illusions reign in place of truth. ²It demonstrates God is denied, confused with fear, perceived as mad, and seen as traitor to Himself. ³If God is real, there is no pain. ⁴If pain is real, there is no God. ⁵For vengeance is not part of love. ⁶And fear, denying love and using pain to prove that God is dead, has shown that death is victor over life. ⁷The body is the Son of God, corruptible in death, as mortal as the Father he has slain. Peace to such foolishness! ²The time has come to laugh at such insane ideas. ³There is no need to think of them as savage crimes, or secret sins with weighty consequence. ⁴Who but a madman could conceive of them as cause of anything? ⁵Their witness, pain, is mad as they, and no more to be feared than the insane illusions which it shields, and tries to demonstrate must still be true. It is your thoughts alone that cause you pain. ²Nothing external to your mind can hurt or injure you in any way. ³There is no cause beyond yourself that can reach down and bring oppression. ⁴No one but yourself affects you. ⁵There is nothing in the world that has the power to make you ill or sad, or weak or frail. ⁶But it is you who have the power to dominate all things you see by merely recognizing what you are. ⁷As you perceive the harmlessness in them, they will accept your holy will as theirs. ⁸And what was seen as fearful now becomes a source of innocence and holiness.

Interestingly enough, when I read this lesson I was experiencing some physical pain, so there was a connection of my current experience and the lesson, which is not uncommon. And I noticed that my first reaction was this; "no, I really don't want to give up this pain because then I won't have a reason to take some time off from responsibilities and rest". In other words, I was using the pain as an "acceptable" reason to rest for a couple of hours! My god, if we aren't thoroughly conditioned to be little worker bees! At any rate, once I realized all this, I turned to Spirit and soon the pain was mostly ameliorated because 1) I turned to Love for the solution which led me to 2) taking my focus off resisting the pain and allowing it to be there until I was willing to give it kind attention. Pain is sacred, instructional, and meant to serve us in returning to Love, no matter what. And with that said, I am very grateful not to have to deal with it more often, and my heart goes out to those that do. It is a difficult, deeply challenging curriculum. 💗💖💖💗😍
Forgiving false light teachings...
As a CK Master Practitioner, I can't help but watch the false light separation teachings of media hatred, covid division, American political polarity devolving into a Cultural Revolution of Red Guardism kicking us back into a psychospiritual dark age. I am using NPA (non-personal awareness) as a healing modality for self-forgiveness to unwind the hatred entanglement disguised as spiritual superiority -- expressions of hate by a bloated spiritual ego. This comes to me as a way towards how to live a life away from the ego thought system of hate and self-hate. With NPA, here is my take on the "advanced" form of NPA with moving into presence... This grievance (the media, covid, the current polarity in the American political system, the demonization of maskers/non-maskers) I have made real This energy of the grievance I have made real This pure energy of the grievance I have made real is not personal This pure energy of the grievance I have made real is not personal This pure energy of the grievance I have made real is not personal And I am willing to experience it. Now be inwardly still. Let go and give yourself space to simply be w/ your experience. Whatever emotion, sensation, or thought arises, be still until you feel a natural completion. And in the parlance of A Course In Miracles, "today am I extending love or am I being called to give love?" Am I aware of my Being? Am I being loving... or judgmental, as a false light separatist in my spiritualized egoic judgments?

It seems to me that we are all led into focusing on whatever will bring us to the Great Light most expeditiously. Sometimes I focus on the world until I truly get sick of the utter falseness and ludicrousness of it, and return to my inner. Sometimes I focus on what other folks are up to, until I realize that the only thing needing attention is my inner. And then there's the stressing over the finances, one of my personal favorites 😁, until I wake up to the fact that whatever is happening with money is the Universe lovingly leading me back to the inner...whether there seems "enough" or "lack"...and that when I surrender it all up to the Loving Onlyness, that honestly and truly, all is well with the bank account as well as everything else! Loving what you said, Katie, "Everything, without exception, is God." Yes!!!!!! 😁💖🌺😍🔆💗
Lesson 183 I call upon God’s Name and on my own.
God’s Name is holy, but no holier than yours. ²To call upon His Name is but to call upon your own. ³A father gives his son his name, and thus identifies the son with him. ⁴His brothers share his name, and thus are they united in a bond to which they turn for their identity. ⁵Your Father’s Name reminds you who you are, even within a world that does not know; even though you have not remembered it. God’s Name can not be heard without response, nor said without an echo in the mind that calls you to remember. ²Say His Name, and you invite the angels to surround the ground on which you stand, and sing to you as they spread out their wings to keep you safe, and shelter you from every worldly thought that would intrude upon your holiness. Repeat God’s Name, and all the world responds by laying down illusions. ²Every dream the world holds dear has suddenly gone by, and where it seemed to stand you find a star; a miracle of grace. ³The sick arise, healed of their sickly thoughts. ⁴The blind can see; the deaf can hear. ⁵The sorrowful cast off their mourning, and the tears of pain are dried as happy laughter comes to bless the world. Repeat the Name of God, and little names have lost their meaning. ²No temptation but becomes a nameless and unwanted thing before God’s Name. ³Repeat His Name, and see how easily you will forget the names of all the gods you valued. ⁴They have lost the name of god you gave them. ⁵They become anonymous and valueless to you, although before you let the Name of God replace their little names, you stood before them worshipfully, naming them as gods. Repeat the Name of God, and call upon your Self, Whose Name is His. ²Repeat His Name, and all the tiny, nameless things on earth slip into right perspective. ³Those who call upon the Name of God can not mistake the nameless for the Name, nor sin for grace, nor bodies for the holy Son of God. ⁴And should you join a brother as you sit with him in silence, and repeat God’s Name along with him within your quiet mind, you have established there an altar which reaches to God Himself and to His Son.

This thing of knowing that we are all Godding around as part of God, it's not such an easy one to get, at least it hasn't been for me. Tolle said once that we are to God as sunbeams are to the sun...emanating from and doing what the sun would have us do. This is helpful to me. Much love to all.💖
Lesson 183
The name of God for years has been a combination of "Holy Mother , Father, Daughter, Son and Holy Spirit that makes us one." It brought peace to all healing practice that I implemented whether in person or at a distance. So many times as I held space for my brother or sister to find their way to a miracle, this I would pray and then see it as so. This is a bridge to I AM and we are one!

This is so beautiful, Jerry! Just in time, as I deal with a recent upsetting treatment from a brother, thank you so much. Much love to you and all. 💖😍🌺
Sto or Sts
Im trying to choose service to others. I feel resistance to it because I’m so used to separation, fear, lack, competition, etc. Has anyone started in my position and actively chosen service to others and successfully prepared for 4th density? I’m wondering if simply choosing sto and doing my best to let my actions and thought demonstrate that choice, if that will make my choice a reality. I don’t think that wanting to be sto out of fear of the other path will work, but it’s genuinely the position I find myself in at the moment. I want to wholly want to be sto, and I don’t know how to make the choice real, other than choosing it and trying to embody it.

Thank you Naty Tancio for your loving and knowledgeable reply to Stacey's question. And along with you being of service to her, what leapt out at me was making "cause and effect as one" going to contemplate that today, I've never quite gotten clarity on that point, maybe today is the day!😁💖

Learning to live from, and as, love is my heart's desire. Many bumps, detours, and scrapes along the way, but they are part of The Deal too!
