Opening to the Experience of One Mind and
Q: A thought came to me a while ago which I tried to put aside because
I perceived it to be total arrogance. It would not leave, though and
eventually I asked the Holy Spirit to help me look at it.
The thought was that I am really all there is. God created one Son and
everything and everyone I perceive as outside of me, is really me. I
am the one dreaming the dream. All the characters in the dream are of
my making. There really is no one out there who can make me angry or
be angry with me. Nor can there be anything out there that I can fear,
because everything out there is what I made up. I have made the bodies
of my friends, my children and I use them to maintain my own illusion.
I am the dreamer of the dream and all figures I encounter are dream
figures of my own making only.
Now the arrogance of even entertaining a thought that "I"
could have done all this, made me shirk away. And yet, if this is true
(which I really sense it is), so many things fall into place. All anger
that I perceive then has to be within me. When I forgive anyone, I really
only forgive myself, because "they" are made in my mind. I
would not have to hold on to any belief system, because who would I
need to prove something to, what can I judge against, what would I need
to defend myself against. If it all starts within me, all of the judgment,
beliefs, attack etc. would be pointless, because I would only be attacking
what is within me. If all is within me and everything "out there"
is my dream, experiencing oneness would become effortless.
Part of me wants to grab wholeheartedly onto this, because I can sense
the total release that would come with its acceptance, yet another part
of me says "You are finally losing your mind! If anyone has to
know what you are thinking you will be locked up!" Please help

Blessings of Love. You are finding our mind, the mind that shares the
Holy Spirit´s Purpose. The idea of everything being one mind is
the introduction of the idea of the forgiven world, the happy dream
of forgiveness. The ego made the cosmos, and this is reflected in the
early Workbook lesson "I have invented the world I see." The
idea that everything is one mind does eliminate the possibility of attack,
of proving something, of defense, judgment, & separate opposing
beliefs, for oneness has no parts to conflict.
The Holy Spirit Asks that you accept the idea of one mind wholeheartedly,
for this is the Correction to the error called ego. The ego was the
belief in private minds with private thoughts, but if mind is one the
ego has no foundation on which to stand. Forgiveness reflects the Oneness
that shines beyond perception. Forgiveness unifies and shows the world
anew. You are not going insane, you are going inward to sanity of mind.
and unified perception is the gateway to the remembrance of God &
The idea you have shared is the key to the puzzle of the ego. The door
is open wide now, and now you will begin to realize that there are no
exceptions to the idea. This transfer of training is the end of the
puff of nothingness that never really began. The end of illusions is
the final illusion of forgiveness, for the ego was but one illusion
- not many. The sameness of illusion seen in mind is the end of multiplicity
and complexity. Only a blessing remains!
How blessed is the mind that sees there is nothing but itself. There
is no subject/object split, so perceiver/perceived split, and no observer/observed
split in one mind. Oneness is simple. Truth is simple. Happiness is
simple. Love is simple.
I rejoice in our Oneness! In Happiness & Peace.
