The Power of Belief

M: I Suppose there are some things in my life that I don't want to give up because they're good.

C: What in your "life" gives consistent joy and does not also expose a dark side through the ego's use of perception? The ego will consistently provide erratic and often highly chaotic mood states based on guilt and employing judgment to determine the nature of WHAT is perceived and, hence, you will never really SEE what is there, just the ego's interpretation of what is there, which is always FALSE.

M: If this world is such a "dream," as you say, why can't I assert complete control over it?

C: You could easily control every part of the dream, as long as every part IS seen AS a dream. Yet, as you say, "there are some things in my life that I don't want to give up." These parts are the LOCK that requires a KEY.

My job has been to guide you to REALITY, because if you KNEW the Truth, you'd awaken instantly and NOT one part of a dream could CONTAIN you from your desire to be FREE. Whenever you see parts, you see with the ego, which applies a judgment on everything seen, demanding it be NOT what it IS. You could look upon the WHOLE whenever you choose, but you fear that seeing the WHOLE would sacrifice the parts idolized as truth and fear is always a strategy of the ego to maintain your alliance with its belief in death

M: But, once again, it's always my choice.

C: A choice already made.

M: But if I'm already awake, then why am I still dreaming?? This makes no sense!

C: Indeed, the question, properly stated, should be... "if I am are already awake, then WHO is it that is dreaming?" The answer is patently obvious.

M: No one...

C: That will be readily apparent soon, but your answer demonstrates great progress in your learning. For now you remain bound to delusional fixations because the power of BELIEF is a power inherited from your Source and, thus, beyond description through concepts that differentiate and judge, which is the ONLY purpose of language and that which makes teaching not impossible, but very slow and arduous due to your reliance on symbols to represent reality.

Through BELIEF you have the power to literally move mountains, which is obvious since you made them "real" in the first place and you BELIEVE very much in what you make "real." Nevertheless, even in a dream you provide many clues to the power of belief and the "placebo effect" is just one example, one which has completely confounded your "scientists," of the power of the mind to heal the body simply through the absolute power of BELIEF.

My brother, you have no IDEA of the power of your mind, because you have surrendered it to the ego's insignificance and inadequacy adopting littleness above grandeur and this BELIEF is demonstrated to yourself every day.

M: So if I just believe this does not exist, it will disappear?

C: Instantly.

M: I can change the dream by just believing I can?

C: It will immediately conform to the specifications you have IN mind because it never leaves your mind. Where else could it exist?

M: Then why don't I get what I ask for?

C: Because you have no comprehension of the power of BELIEF and the amount of vigilance required is more than you can currently provide. This makes you victim to mind wandering, which the ego takes full advantage of each and every time, engaging a duality of opposing ideas that serve to deny Truth. I ask that you increase vigilance against lies, making you more open to Truth.

You will always get what you ask for, but do you BELIEVE you will receive? Any doubt as to the certainty of receiving must entail delay, for you will literally block reception. 

M: I thought I "need do nothing"?

C: Indeed, but you clearly do not BELIEVE this as of yet and I must work with your demand for action, which is a requirement of the ego that you have adopted for yourself.

My brother you have absolutely no faith in your SELF, because your SELF is unknown to "you," but it is the part that you did NOT make and has NO connection to dreaming. This part of YOU rests in perfect peace and has NO knowledge of dreams made "real." It suffers NOT from petty anxieties about useless activities that lead to NOTHING. It requires NO conditions for which to extend perfect LOVE to all it sees. This SELF is never sad, depressed or lonely, because it is fully joined with all CREATION and experiences NO lack or scarcity, because its abundance is infinite. 

I recognize that this is beyond your current comprehension for now, but I will occasionally provide reminders that serve to stir a deeper place in your mind. A place that has brought you to me, though you still struggle to understand WHY. The answers are WITHIN you and I will help you to reach them, for you have called on me for one task only.

To help you remember...

The Peeling Back of Perception...

M: All I want to know is how to change this dream, since you say it's of my own making. How do I make it better?

C: Decide you NO longer want what the ego provides.

M: So, no more sex, drugs and rock and roll?

C: Have they brought you peace or joy? The ego will always have you surrender infinite peace for moments of fleeting pleasure, but you will pay a steep price and you often have and each time you return to me.

It is not what you give yourself in a dream, but the PURPOSE you assign to what is provided. Obviously, the only PURPOSE of a dream is to wake from it and what you give unto yourself NOT assigned that PURPOSE will keep you imprisoned in a dream and your "world" has become a place of bondage in which FREEDOM is entirely absent.

The purpose you have superimposed upon every "person" in your dream has ultimately defined YOU. This, and this alone, has determined the joy of freedom versus the chains of bondage. Judge not lest ye be judged was the simplest way of saying that you do this TO yourself. Yet, you have persisted in rejecting the simplicity of Truth for the convoluted absurdities through which the ego defines your "world."

Nothing leaves your mind. There is NO "world" external to it. You give to yourself what you believe you deserve. You DO believe a Son of God deserves Grandeur, but you also believe a prisoner of the ego deserves death and your world will always reflect the CHOICE you have made.

M: I just can't grasp the idea that everything in this world is in my mind and not out there in the world.

C: I KNOW it as Truth, but you must prove it to yourself and you will do this through the "senses" and "see" it for yourself, for but only that will disentangle your THOUGHTS from the illusion of a body and what IT informs you is "real."

M: How can I use the senses to tell me it's not real when the senses are a part of the illusion?

C: The part of your mind that has KNOWLEDGE of Truth has been silenced by the part that relies on perception in alliance with the ego that directs what is perceived. Yet, you will literally alter perception to awaken the KNOWLEDGE that will no longer rely on perception, but on the Voice for God which will lead you to AWAKENING.

M: Sounds nice, but a little outside my realm of expertise.

C: Fortunately, it does NOT rely on "you" for much at all, other than the little willingness required to begin. However, note the subtle shift in perception you experienced yesterday. For the first time, since we have talked, you made a conscious effort to perceive without the ego's directives and you noted a quiet turning away from the ego's distractions, which allowed you to be more attentive to the needs of others and you did this even though you were experiencing physical pain.

It is only through a peeling back of perception that the Truth will rush forward to fill the void. Your reliance on perception to "see" Truth has been held hostage by the ego and its reliance on fear to maintain control through illusion. The little willingness to recognize this is all that is needed.

Eventually, recognizing the lies of the ego will be inside your "realm of expertise," and you will provide them as much attention as you do the buzzing of a house fly, until eventually Truth fills your mind and perception fades like fog on a windy morning.

M: It's hard to discern when I'm perceiving with ego or with you.

C: When you fully perceive with me you will have an experience of needing to do nothing, because nothing need be done. Yet, at present, I am asking for your conscious intention to see things differently. Note what the ego demands you "see" and simply dismiss it by allowing me to show you the Truth in what you see.

Be NOT concerned with the mechanics of what I teach, for it is wholly beyond your capacity to understand when the mind is clouded by the delusion of past and future fears. Simply recognize that your salvation from HELL relies exclusively on your dissociation from the ego, because the ego is HELL personified.

M: I'm afraid that, as opposed to yesterday, today was all ego, all the time. As much as I tried to engage a little willingness, the ego took center stage and ruled the show.

C: Look to your mood to identify what you perceive WITH, the ego or Truth. The ego projects grievance and attack upon ALL it sees, while Truth simply overlooks with forgiveness and moves peacefully through a dream of HELL allowing the parts of the dream to be gently touched with the joy of HEAVEN.

Heaven and hell are both in your mind, because EVERYTHING is within you and NOTHING can exist free of that Truth. Yet, EVERYTHING that is within you is within God and NOTHING that exists CAN exist free of that Truth. What God does NOT think can NOT exist and God has no knowledge of your dream. He only knows that for an instant you fell asleep and dreamed of a time and place that could NOT exist and in that instant you were gently awakened to the astounding Truth that it NEVER happened.

Recognize by your moods who you ally with in perceiving the contents of your mind and transform that "world" into Heaven. There is NO suffering in Heaven only exquisite peace and infinite joy. Look on what you have made with the Joy of Heaven and be free of the hell you made "real." See without attack and grieve nothing you have made and allow forgiveness to show you Truth

Little brother, you know NOT what you DO, because what you DO could never have been DONE. Look through my eyes and see this "place" dissolve into thin air to reveal wonders beyond your imagination because what you have imagined is a dream of nowhere in which nothing exists.

Free Your Mind...

M: You state that I choose between the ego and truth. Who is this "I" that makes such a choice?

C: There is no such "I" that could make such a choice, except in a dream, because only in a dream could an "I" exist. Only in a dream are choices made by individual "thinkers," when in REALITY there is only ONE choice and you have already made it as ONE mind.

Eternity can NOT be understood in time. It makes absolutely no sense to a dreamer relying on symbols for truth. Yet, the dream symbols can be arranged so as to show the dreamer how to awake to eternity and that is exactly what you have called on me to do which, paradoxically, demonstrates that part of your mind KNOWS it is dreaming, for why else would you request my assistance?

There is a part of your mind that knows the difference between Truth and insanity and you have literally invented me to lead you back to Truth. I do that by demonstrating that you have never left and are there with ME as always.

M: I invented you??

C: The "world" is an invention of your mind, "externally" projected parts, with you dwelling "internally," instilling a deluded sense of separation between what is "inside" as opposed to what is "outside," even while it is still ALL within you. Within your mind is both question and answer. I merely serve as trusted adviser, because you do NOT trust yourself.

M: Why would I do this?

C: Because you dream of separation, such an understanding is alien to that which believes it is not ONE, but a weak and inadequate representation of the many. There is no "I" separate from the "world."

There are answers to all your questions. Yet, keep in mind, many of the answers will seem totally absurd to your current level of understanding. This has resulted in years of rejection and abandoning of what is taught, but from my vantage point "time" is inconsequential because my patience is infinite.

M: How do I make contact with the part of my mind that knows this is a dream.

C: Simply engage the world as if you were NOT an ego and see it through Truth, as it longs for that TRUTH above all else, because you long for it above all else. Above all else YOU want to see peace instead of this.

The world conforms to what the ego seeks and the ego seeks suffering and if you suffer you seek with the ego and not with me. Seek with me and prove to yourself that you are NOT an ego, but the loving Child of God. See the world through my eyes and see Truth not illusions, experience joy and not suffering.

M: I don't see how this is even possible since the ego is with me from the moment I wake to the moment I close my eyes to sleep and it even inhabits my dreams. Even now I must consider that the bills get paid, deadlines are met, tasks completed, dates remembered, on and on, there is no end to what I must think about completely opposite what you teach.

C: If you deeply analyse the trajectory of your life, you will see that most of it has happened completely absent any choice you could have made, in fact, most of it seems to have been thrust upon you rather than asked for, but rarely have you considered why this is so and you just accept it as fate, although with much weeping and gnashing of teeth.

The ego requires that you suffer, but never enough that you would seek relief outside its control. What it fears more than anything is that you will one day discover it has no power over you and never did. Even in this moment, as you write these words, the ego is stirring in consternation that you may inadvertently stumble upon what could ultimately decimate it completely by fracturing the foundation of DEATH that holds you firmly in place through abject terror. Yet, there is also a calm excitement within you, gradually gathering in momentum, that the Truth of God is so near you could reach out and touch it.

If you are already AWAKE, and I assure you this MUST be true for in NO way could you separate from your Source, then every instant of the dream is exactly as it should be. There can be NO coincidences in a dream if Awakening is guaranteed by God.

M: So I need accept pain and suffering? I need to accept the death and destruction all around me?

C: Why else would you give it to yourself, for this is NOT God's world, but it is not your world either and this is exactly what you teach yourself in every experience you encounter.

M: Shit! That sucks. There's got to be a better way than that.

C: Hence, the reason you have called on me, because you cannot awaken through the projected purposes of the ego. What the ego defines, defines you, because you look inward before you project outward.

Note the scheming nature of ego sight in defining a purpose for each "body" you encounter, based entirely on external form and devoid of internal content. Everything in your "world" promotes the sharing of bodies in which no communication occurs and the mind is left to suffer in darkness.

To free your mind is to find no purpose in a body that you would use for your advantage, because only minds communicate and only when free of the body.

You have been amazingly vigilant toward the actions and behaviors of the body, in fact, the foundation of most of your thinking involves attention to the body, while the mind is left unprotected from the ego's claim that the mind is inconsequential to the needs of the body and, hence, must focus solely on those needs alone.

At present, you cannot ignore the needs of the body, but you can begin to pay greater heed to the needs of the mind and the mind NEEDS to be free of the body in order for you to UNDERSTAND your freedom is in, and of, the mind alone.

Seek in Certainty and Ye Shall Find...

M: You say that I can choose the voice for Truth over the ego. Why do I not do that?

C: Your trust in the ego is dissipating, which is why you call on me, but you still do NOT fully trust me and this has generated a sense of cognitive dissonance or tension between two opposing choices. This is why you must continually edit these posts, seeking to differentiate between the ego's lies and my Truth. You will soon have no difficulty in dictating from my voice and editing will no longer be necessary.

As I have said before, in a dream, "learning" is the only purpose of "time" and this is your requirement, not God's. You could have the KNOWLEDGE of eternity in an instant if you so choose. Yet, your allegiance to the ego, although weakening, is still intact.

There will come a time when we will laugh together at how a "world" so senseless could have been believed as true.

M: But I feel I have no choice but to try and make sense of it.

C: You are beginning to conceive of this as an impossible task, which it undoubtedly is, and this is why you choose to call on me. I clearly see ALL of the dream as meaningless, while you continue the search for meaning in parts of the dream and every part has failed you because it is derived from the whole and the whole is entirely devoid of meaning.

Little brother, you are very weary of the search and I continually remind you that this search can have no end because what you seek is NOT outside you. The part of you that speaks to me KNOWS this with absolute certainty.

Dwell there...

M: All I need is a sign that what you teach is the truth.

C: I brought the dead to life and still you chose disbelief.

The ego is strong because you made it and you believe in what you make "real." The ego will not give you a sign of Truth because it stands for everything that opposes Truth. NOT one thing in your world stands for Truth, whether you judge it "good" or "evil," because the very act of judgment immediately condemns it ALL to a lie.

But as you see in, so will you see out and the "signs" are in your mind, should you choose to reveal them to yourself. I teach you to show yourself Truth, because you will NOT accept it any other way.

M: You keep dumping this on me, demanding that I have a choice between the ego or the truth. I want the truth, but that seems to elude me.

C: Consider more deeply what you ask for, because your request will never be denied and has never been denied and your world reflects back to you what you seek to find in it because it... is in you.

Ask and it shall be given you. Seek and ye shall find. Knock and it shall be opened unto you. For everyone that asketh, receiveth and he that seeketh, findeth and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

M: But I don't want what I'm finding. I want the peace and joy you talk about.

C: Then ask for it.

M: I do, but I get the same crap all the time!

C: The ego thrives on complication and complexity making what is undeniably simplistic, completely intractable and confounding. If you seek peace through the ego you will always be confused and disappointed, because the cornerstone of its whole belief system is "seek, but do not find" and, make no mistake, what you will find is "the same crap all the time."

When was the last time you asked for peace and truly wanted what you asked for in the certain expectation that it was yours simply for the asking? Ask for peace and you shall receive, in the certainty it can be yours for the asking. 

You may think that you have asked for peace, but the fact that you do not NOW have it, determines that something else was desired. Some form of "peace" that the ego has warped and distorted, but that you accept as "truth," ask for, and receive exactly as you have asked.

The "peace" of the ego always involves some form of commitment to the body and that commitment is measured in pleasure or pain. In your dream, you are either moving toward pleasure or away from pain and this defines exactly what you seek and, hence, determines what you ask for. Pleasure and pain are of the body and the body is simply a delusional belief of what YOU are NOT. Do not seek peace from a delusion, because you will be sorely disappointed on a repetitive basis and this has been your experience and the exact reason you repetitively return to me. Do not request peace from a body, because its only purpose in a dream is to symbolize death and it has none other.

M: So, how should I seek peace?

C: In the absolute certainty that it is already yours and THIS is the key to salvation.

Little brother, you are suffocating in a sea of self doubt and confusion in all your attempts to extract Truth from what the dream teaches, because everything it teaches can be proven "right" or "wrong," based on fluctuating beliefs that change with the seasons or your nebulous mood states. Nothing in your world is anchored in certainty, but drifts aimlessly among rising and falling tides of doubt, disillusionment and fear.

It is NOT faith that will save you, but certainty. It is NOT the flimsy foundation of fluctuating beliefs that will bring you peace, but the abject certainty of Truth. Dwell there and feel the Truth rise up in you.

Seek in certainty and ye shall find...
