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?
