"Real" is a Concept of your Invention

M: So everything I see is not real?

J: “Real” is a concept of your invention that is present nowhere in Creation. Therefore, everything you see IS certainly “real” otherwise, you would not SEE it. I merely teach that what you make “real” is not True and therefore, it is only “real” for you. Nothing I have ever taught can be “seen” to be learned. Nevertheless, once it is known it will be “seen” everywhere, because it IS everywhere.

M: What do you mean everything I see, I make real? I see it because it’s real. If it wasn’t real I wouldn’t see it.

J: Reality for you is entirely contingent on bodily sensation. Without sensing an embodied ‘self,’ you do not believe YOU could be “real,” simply because the body represents an external world for which to contrast an internal ‘self’ against.

You do believe “you” are both “inside” and “outside” and it is this distinction that defines “hell.”

It is an outside “world” that limits you, because you believe you were created from IT. Nevertheless, you were Created without limits or conditions of any kind, but find it necessary to limit your ‘self’ through an "outside" world. All limits you make real and that is what you experience, because you believe nothing can be experienced separate from what can be sensed as “real.”

Truth is certain, simply because it is what YOU are. However, sensation will have absolutely nothing to do with that experience until Truth is learned and then sensation will adjust accordingly, since it will have no reason to resist any longer.

M: So nothing you teach can be found in the world?

J: Truth “can be found in the world” because when you learn it, you will SEE nothing else, no matter what direction you “look.” This is contingent on “learning,” but only because you require it be learned. Truth need not be learned, since it IS, whether you learn it or NOT. Understand this and learning is complete.

However, if you see it nowhere you look, then what you SEE is meaningless because, although you call it “real” it is not in any way True.

M: So how can I perceive the world as meaningless when I still must respond to it as if it were real?

J: You do not believe your dreams are “real” and, in judging that what you “perceive” is nothing more than a dream, you have no need of fear in judging that you could easily brush it all away with a wave of your hand. Yet, why do that, when it is yours to make as you choose with no limits to what CAN be experienced.

This IS the "Final Judgment."

The concept of “real” limits you and, thus, determines the conditions of your suffering. Nevertheless, it is a concept of your invention and can be easily brushed aside if you so choose.

M: So I should respond to the world as if it were a dream?

J: To respond “as if” is a poor attempt to deny the reality you demand by calling it “real.” It is REAL to you and to deny this only results in the misunderstanding that calls reality an “illusion,” but continues to advise that you seek rewards from what is not there. How can what is NOT there, reward you?

Creation extends Truth, but you make reality instead and, therefore, your reward is suffering because what believes Truth can be absent, can only suffer from an absence that is NOT True. Only Truth rewards, simply by nature of what IT IS and it is undeniably YOU.

Your Facts are Fiction

M: I’m beginning to see little point to this and wonder if I should discontinue, since it’s all a bit too complicated for me. How can I learn what I can’t understand?

J: If you have turned away from understanding, it is because you demand understanding be on your terms. What I teach invalidates your terms completely and asks that you learn the same. I am not asking that you give up the world.
I only ask that you give up YOUR world, for it no longer serves you and you have long since given up serving IT. There is a better "world" for you to SEE if you believe it can be seen... as I see it.
M: What do you mean my world? Is my world different from the world others experience? We all experience primarily the same world.

J: If you mean that you “primarily” experience the setting and rising of the sun, then yes, you share agreement on that as fact. But you do not share YOUR experiences, only facts.
Bodies share only “approximations” of Truth, which cannot be Truth because Truth is never approximate, but total and complete. This is the loneliness you experience and, until experience can be shared, loneliness is a "fact."
The experience of loneliness cannot be shared, because it demands separation and YOU have determined that a fact of living.

M: I think I share a great deal with the people I love.

J: You share "facts" that only serve to veil the Truth. Yes, you could share a “great deal” if only you could love without "facts." But in your world “love” is also a fact and, because of that must always be fictional. Your facts are fiction because nothing your world “agrees” to believe as "truth," has ever been True, because Truth requires NO agreement to be True.

In fact, you agree on very little and rely on the past to determine what beliefs are "true." I say to you now, if every mind could agree on just one “fact” completely free of the past, that fact would instantly be Truth. Yet, if every mind could agree completely, facts would disappear forever and Truth is ALL you would experience. Agree on this "fact" alone, for it alone can save you.
You may share “a great deal” with those you have chosen to “love,” but conditional "love" cannot be shared and love that is NOT shared by all is NOT Love. Therefore, you share nothing with no one and “thinking” it is so may make it "real" in your world but there is much you have made "real" that is NOT TRUE and never will be. However, it does make it another “fact” and in your world, love conditioned on suffering is a fact.
M: So sharing my experience will save others?

J: Are they not a part of your experience? I continually ask that you exclude nothing.

M: I can’t share anything with people I don’t know.

J: What would that “knowing” entail? Their names and addresses? Bodily appearances? The job they hold or the car they drive? Would you require they have the same values and worship the same God? Seeing differences denies sharing and so, you must see differently in order TO share.

Are you certain that you even “know” those you have chosen to “love”? Strangers do not love and if in every moment you do not love what you SEE, then you have made it stranger to you. Love is Truth and there could never be a moment Truth is not True. However, you can believe otherwise, but this does not in anyway remove Truth, it simply permits you to believe YOU are removed.

Yet, this simply cannot be.
