The Truth is True and Only the Truth is True
The truth is true and only the truth is true. This profoundly simple
statement, when applied directly to every seeming problem of this world,
has the power to bring the mind out of confusion and fear and back into
the simplicity and safety of the present moment in an instant.
What is the truth?
When Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth and the life", the
Holy Spirit was speaking. The truth is an experience that God Is, it
is a state of mind far beyond form. Words can be reflective of it and
can point towards it but the truth can only be known as an actual experience.
In this world, the ego made up its own version of the truth. It involves
6 billion separate minds, each with its own truth / version of the truth
/ idea of what the truth is. This distorted idea of the truth is nothing
more than an opinion or a judgment, based on the past, subject to change,
and therefore unreliable and unreal.
Nothing about this world is true, for you are not of this world. This
is a world of shifting, changing images and the Christ, being like God
in every way, is eternal and changeless. The mind seemed to lock itself
into time and space, exchanging Reality as God created it, for a pseudo
reality based on images. Forgiveness is the escape from illusions and
the return to the truth.
Seeing the false as false takes humility and a great willingness to
be wrong – to come to an admission that "I have been mistaken
in my thinking, I do no not know what the truth is and I am willing
to be shown".
As the mind continues deeper and deeper inward toward the truth, one
realizes that nothing the world believes is true and it (the world)
offers nothing of real value. All beliefs around survival, nutrition,
exercise, love, relationships, life and death, sickness and health,
causation of any kind, and the purpose of every separate thing of this
world are to be raised up and questioned – seen as false –
and handed over to the Holy Spirit so that another way can be chosen.
Helpful lessons that support this initial step in seeing the false as
Lesson 9. I see nothing as it is now, "It is difficult for the
untrained mind to believe that what it seems to picture is not there".
Lesson 14. God did not create a meaningless world. "The idea for
today is another step in learning to let go the thoughts that you have
written on the world, and see the word of God in their place. The early
steps in this exchange are what can truly be called salvation…"
Lesson 15. My thoughts are images I have made. "It is because the
thoughts you think you think appear as images that you do not recognize
them as nothing." Not only are the images seen as real but the
deceived mind then orders the thoughts / images in hierarchies.
For example, when applying Lesson 14. God did not create that airplane
crash and so it is no real – when the event seems to be past,
and related to "other people" and it occurred "elsewhere",
it seems to be more acceptable.
There is time and space / a gap / a split between the perceiver and
the event / object (perceived).
When applied to persons / events / places in one's immediate environment
and life experience the ordering of thought (importance and "reality"
given to chosen special ones/things) seems to cause great resistance
to accepting and applying the teachings.
If only the truth is true and nothing else is true then every thought
held in mind right now, relative to every person, object and event in
time and space such as my best friend/ my mother/ my spouse/ my pet/
my house/ my wedding day are all equally unreal.
This transfer of training without exceptions is fundamental to the healing
of the mind. To hold one exception out from the rest is to refuse the
acceptance of the correction, the acceptance that all illusions are
When Jesus said "be as little children" he was speaking of
an open state of mind, a willing and humble attitude that happily releases
the belief that it knows what the world is for and how it should be.
In Lesson 184 Jesus shares "You live by symbols – You have
made up names for everything you see. Each becomes a separate entity
identified by its own name. By this you carve it out of unity…"
This carving up, this establishment of perception is wish fulfillment.
What is named is given meaning, seen as meaningful, and seen as causative.
This establishment is set against the given truth. The name of God is
the replacement for all separate names and purposes and meanings of
the world. The Holy Spirit uses all of the symbols of the world, including
words, to point towards the truth, remembering Creation has one Name,
one Meaning and a single Source which unifies all things within Itself.
Remember this world is a substitute for heaven. It is not your home.
All memories, thoughts, relationships, places, events and people can
be used by Me (Holy Spirit) for the glorious purpose of awakening. Tread
lightly amongst the images. With gratitude, allow them to be released
from your mind. Only through true forgiveness can the mind be freed
from illusions, and be free to accept the Name of God as the replacement
for all of the little names, free to accept Reality as It was Created
by God the Father.
When I speak of true forgiveness, true perception and true love, I am
speaking of a perception that is unified, that no longer perceives separation
and fragmentation. I am speaking of the Love of God that is not of this
world. The egos version of forgiveness, perception and love are inconsistent
and subject to change and you can tell by the way that you feel whether
you are in alignment with the truth. Do not waste another precious moment
searching for meaning in images – it is the past – it is
over and done with now.
Come, abide with Me, trust in Me, release the past and give your Self
to Me in this holy instant.
There is no alternative but to accept Gods plan for salvation.
To attempt or pretend there could be another way is nothing but a distraction
– meaningless in eternity but tragic in time. Tragic because of
the unnecessary conflicted state of mind that is being chosen.
You have cause for freedom now.
You have cause for happiness now!
Acceptance is all that is required.
Come, rejoice with Me, in the simplicity of the truth.
With the Love of God
