You see "clues" to Truth all around, yet fail to recognize that every experience is a clue YOU have provided to attain certainty of what and who YOU are. When you know your purpose you will interpret the clues correctly, until then you will believe in the delusion of a "reality" as outside your control.
M: I feel conflicted over the idea that I should see God in everything. This conflicts with your teaching that the world is a product of my thought and does not exist separate from me.
M: If I simply believe the world is a product of my thought, then I can change the world just by thinking differently?
M: How can I gain in faith?
This resistance has been a pattern for you and, unfortunately, you have made yourself very weary of ever learning the truth. However, you have made note of changes in your mood. Your "moods" are merely a measure of the thinking that you choose to experience throughout the body as opposed to merely in the mind.
You would greatly benefit in correcting this misinterpretation since mind is all there IS. Projecting mind into the body has only served to confuse you of the purpose of your mind and that is to correspond with me so that you can partake of the peace and joy of Heaven. Make no mistake, Heaven is the certainty that you seek and, of that, there can be no doubt.
M: I should ignore my feelings?
There is nothing that need be discarded, since all is useful when used for the correct purpose. Your feelings can be as useful as your thoughts, IF the purpose is based on learning the truth. If the purpose fails to fulfill this criteria, then the only other purpose is suffering and you HAVE “felt” suffering.
M: I just find it hard to see God in a world in which constant suffering is the theme.
M: The circle of life is related to nature and the constant reconstitution of nature in maintaining balance. Life ends and is reformed into life again as nature evolves. Is nature not a part of God’s creation?
You so deeply wish to believe in what you have made and this makes sense since the power of Creation is vested in YOU. You have the power to Create and when you accept this power, you will Create. Until then, you will simply remain deluded and you will worship delusion as truth. You may pray to God, but make no mistake, your actions attest to what you believe is true, in contradiction to your words.
Heaven is unquestionable Truth, yet you believe in compromises to insure your truth is unquestioned and this allows it to persist and this persistence is your experience and is what you continue to question. This is the "circle of delusion." Your questioning will continue as long as you continue to believe that what you make is REAL. Reality is of God and, contrary to present belief, you are aware of that Reality.
How could what God Creates be destroyed in anyway? You find this question intolerable, although it is ever with you, and therefore, your only answer is that destruction must be of God. Even so, in your intolerance of the question you still cannot deny the absurdity of the answer since it is clearly absurd that Perfection would create, only to destroy. Thus, you have allowed destruction to attain divine proportions and now worship the very process of death as your reward for a “life” that has no other purpose but eventual destruction. This is truly insane!
I teach that there is a way back to sanity.
M: So I created nature?
It does seem that there are parts of your “universe” that you have accorded profound significance and it would also seem that there are parts of your world that tend to point to God, and this seems to be your identification with “nature.” But, if the world is a product of your mind, how could this be? Why would you associate parts for your mind to God, while splitting off other parts for some other purpose? And what would that other purpose seem to be? You live in a seeming reality where nothing is certain, but everything seems to be REAL, but still must be questioned. This is the cause of your exhaustion.
As I have taught previously, you have no other purpose but to learn what I teach simply because to learn what I teach is to KNOW yourself and to identify with that knowledge completely because it is the only certainty you will ever KNOW.
But YOU have left “clues” to your certainty and every experience brings you that much closer to Truth. I merely help you interpret the clues for their intended purpose and not some other delusional purpose that you have made up with little understanding as to why you made it.
Vision will aid you in interpreting nature as YOU, since it is a clue YOU have left to yourself. But nature represents a means to knowledge and NOT knowledge and you must not misinterpret symbols for Truth. This is because the knowledge of Truth does not require clues or symbols of any kind, Truth never seems to be REAL, it is always certain because it is the Truth of God and YOU.
