Exchange Your Predictions For Mine

M: You state that I should not attempt to predict my actions and prepare for what I predict. So I shouldn’t prepare for anything?

J: Once a prediction is made, preparation limits what can be known, because the prediction is relied on exclusively as “truth.” You have allowed religion to predict your death as factual and thus, since you accept this as “truth,” IT IS SO. Such is the immense power of your mind and make no mistake you DO tap this power, yet, simply to magnify delusion.

In predicting “death” as fact, you only prepare yourself for fiction, which merely delays Truth. It is through this fictional content that you conduct your life in preparation for this strange idea that eternity includes within it your “mortality.”

In the mistaken belief that you move forward in “time” you merely move backward from Truth.

M: Well, I had to prepare to come to work today.

J: You have normalized fear of what you “know” and since this is NOT knowledge, your ego is very capable of adequately preparing for what cannot save you. In fact, it has NO other purpose.

It is what you do NOT know that you fear the most and this compels your most insane predictions. This insanity is evident in all your thoughts and behaviors. Nevertheless, you pride yourself on advancing forward, when in fact you simply remain in the past.

You feel that by predicting the future you can effectively prepare an escape from fear. Yet, in your predicting future escape, you only build on the fears of the past. In this way, there is no future, but only present fear demanding a way out.

Seek not to escape your mind through your predictions. Prepare for nothing and allow everything be revealed. Revelation asks nothing from you, but your complete vulnerability in the knowledge that you have NOTHING to fear.

Your experiences are as limited as your predictions prepare you for, because the ego only predicts from what IT knows. However, since it knows nothing of any value, the limits have been set to what CAN be experienced. This is why your experiences have become so utterly predictable and your suffering virtually repetitive.

Even love must be defined by your predictions because you fear this more than death. Fear always demands an escape. Therefore, in your attempts predict love, you merely seek to escape the fear of love and nothing more.

M: I don’t believe that I fear love

J: The mind completely free of fear has no NEED to prepare. In preparing for love, you immediately set about defining it and it is this prediction you are prepared to experience. Therefore, nothing more is available. This limits what is infinite by design, thereby making it a product of the ego, which was designed by YOU. There are no such limits to Creation and it cannot be prepared for.

Nothing the ego makes is without fear, because the ego was made from fear. Therefore, the purpose of your life is predicting ways to escape your fear of love. If there were no fear, there would be no need for preparation and love would be what it has always been before your fear defined it to be no more.

Love does not come from need and this is a limit YOU have set.

Therefore, love by its very nature MUST be fearful to exist in your mind, giving you the need to escape it. The world is your means of escape and it has no other purpose. You find many different forms of love in your world, all based solely on your predictions.

M: How do I “prepare” for my fear of love?

J: Your fear of love requires just as much preparation as death and religion evolved solely from this NEED to prepare you for both love and death. Both are deeply feared and your predictions are nothing more than seeking to escape fear.

Nevertheless, since you have also made fear, your predictions are not based on Truth and have never helped you.

Religion teaches that love certainly does exist, yet, not for those who “sin.” This is because “the wages of sin is death.” Religion attempts to prepare you for God’s love by predicting that you could never love another as God loves you. Therefore, from this delusion it makes sense that only God’s love is REAL, but NOT REAL for you. Your reward is death and you have made that very REAL.

M: So how do I overcome all this?

J: Fear is a product of your mind, as am I. Therefore, you have but to make the one choice to end all preparation by allowing my predictions to direct all further choices. Only if you allow me to predict for you, will everything be revealed. My predictions require no preparation because there is nothing to escape, so absolutely True are my predictions. All you need do is be quiet and listen, since nothing more has ever been required of YOU.

Thus, the only question is, when will you exchange your predictions for mine?

Overcoming the World

M: What about 'evolution'? Where does that enter into your theory?

J: A mind that defines itself through an “outside” world must employ all means available to insure bodily adaptation to external conditions and limitations. The mind may envision adaptive measures for the body, but this only attests to the mind’s failure to “evolve” itself.

Your thinking is no different then what was thought before and this is why history compulsively repeats itself. This will continue until you choose a different way of seeing the world. Of yourself, you cannot make such a choice, since you feel bound to your beliefs. Yet, through correct guidance, the right choice is available.

If you continue to see as you do, do you really believe the world will change? As long as “eyes” see the world as IT IS, do you really believe you will act upon it any differently? As long as strength is determined by what you DO, do you really think you can DO anything more than what has been previously attempted to save the world? As long as you exist IN a “body,” do you really think you are free? These are the compromises you feel forced to make, but which are completely unnecessary.

“What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun” is certainly true on face value. However, in the understanding that everything is a product of mind, this puts a new twist on an old parable. If there can never be change under the sun, you may wish to go beyond it.

M: I’m not sure I understand what that means?

J: Mind is not an effect of the world, but is cause. Nevertheless, you live as though victim to the world because you have determined that the world MADE YOU. Therefore, it is easy to understand how you would idolize “natural” processes as creating the world. This significant misinterpretation needs to be corrected; otherwise, you will continue to believe that you are victim to a “world” outside your mind.

Evolution fits well with your need to survive in the hope that you may live to SEE a better “world.” But, if with each new day, suffering is comparable to the day before, why would you wish to SEE it at all? Again, this contradiction you will easily correct by SEEING differently.

Every theory you hold regarding a “world” outside your mind must in some way incorporate belief in death and thus, survival. But if the world is a product of mind, your belief in death and the need to survive, must be reinterpreted because it, too, is a misattribution. This is the true meaning of “overcoming the world."

M: What do you mean history repeats itself?

J: Look closely at the “history” of your world and you will see the compulsive repetition of fear manifest through different bodies, but all conforming to the same delusion. Although the names have changed, the goals remain the same and are merely repeated by a long procession of changing forms. They have different faces, yet, they come in and out of your world repetitively, almost as if the same being.

They are always the same, because they are YOU.

Although the world may appear to be evolving, fear remains the same. A chameleon that easily blends with its environment is still always a chameleon. As long as you remain IN a “world,” your fear will give you little choice but to do as the world commands. Therefore, a better choice is to go within and command the world from that vantage point. This will result in the complete abolishment of fear on every level so that you can learn that the power to command is yours and always has been.

M: So you’re saying I can change the sun?

J: I could not “say” that to someone who believes in death, since their fear makes them too weak and feeble to even briefly comprehend such power. However, to someone who cannot die, there are NO limitations and that includes the limits of your belief in the "universe." Limitation is a product of death and does not exist in eternity, which is where YOU ARE and have always been.
