Does Joy Replace Torment Entirely?
Q: If I, as part of the Sonship, do my part by accepting forgiveness of all the illusions I am immersed in is the pain and suffering alleviated from that the part of the Sonship who is experience this tormented experiences? Is my joy in experiencing the Universal Consciousness (Christ) transferred to him, in spite of his apparent suffering? Need he do anything if I accept the Holy Spirit's call to be the One?
A: Hello Beloved One
Your question is the same as: "How many teachers of God will it take to save the world?"
Remember the Answer given in ACIM Manual for Teachers ...One.
"When I am healed I am not healed alone"
Acceptance of the Atonement (forgiveness of illusion), the sole responsibility for a teacher of God, heals the misperception of "pain and suffering" entirely. The Joy of Christ is ALL that is ever extended, and what seemed to be projected from error was but a dream that never happened. Revelation is an experience of direct Union with God, of Divine Mind Being Singular, and this transcends all "personal" or "interpersonal" concepts, including "transfer."
In the Holy Instant it is apparent that Oneness is the Fact and there is literally no "other" or "part" to transfer Joy to. Happily and Absolutely in Oneness there is no illusion of "apparent suffering." God's Will is Perfect Happiness.
You wrote: "Need he do anything if I accept the Holy Spirit's call to be the One?"
In recognition of the Self as the One there is literally nothing to "do."
Atonement can be summed up like this:
The truth is true and only the truth is true.
Forgiveness is a done deal. The past is gone and the Light has come.
What seemed to be the future was the past as well, and thus the future is gone and the Light has come.
Heaven is Now as the I Am Presence. Happily there is nowhere "else" and nothing "else."
All Glory to the Living God for creating All as One!
