Naming Delusions

M: People stress me out. I often feel I would much rather be alone.

J: In your attempts to control delusions you experience fear, which you then seek to control by calling “stress.” You demand all variables of your “reality” conform to your exact specifications through the "names" you apply. When this is not your experience, you become discouraged and depressed. Yet, this too, you have named and experience accordingly.

This is particularly acute in your need to control other “people.” To fear your world and then seek relief by separating yourself from it through being “alone,” merely confirms that fear is valid. Because of FEAR, your world has NO validity whatsoever and is an asylum for the insane. Yet, still, they ALL have names and this seems to be all you require

Your world has NO validity because you have denied it such in your need to control it. The more you attempt to control delusion, the more REAL it appears.

This is why your world appears to be crumbling into chaos, as delusions control YOU.

Attempting to control delusions must always fail, simply because your insanity is always one OF control. Delusions do not require control, but disbelief. ALL attempts at control merely magnifies belief that you have NO control and thus, demands ever more fear.

You impose upon your “self.” There is NO other. 

M: Well, I don’t experience others as myself, so that statement makes no sense to me.

J: It must remain nonsense until you experience the incredible freedom of alleviating ALL need to control. Seeking to control delusion must always escape your grasp, because nothing is “there.” As a result, discouragement and depression are always what control teaches. Your world is very discouraged indeed.

M: So you’re saying all my stress comes from attempting to control other people?

J: What other reason could there be?

M: So if I stopped trying to control other people, I would no longer experience stress?

J: Stress is fear and fear is the reason for control, which is NO reason at all. Fear is a component of “memory” and only what you remember, you fear. The present need not be remembered. Therefore, your fear of others is always associated to a past that does NOT exist and that could NOT ever exist. Yet, you persist in imposing it upon every experience you conceive. “They” are there not to teach a need for fear, but to teach an end to fear. But you must perceive them as having that purpose or you will impose what you “remember” and, thereby, limit eternity to a memory.

You are always NOW. God has NO memory of you, which informs of your nature contrary to what you are NOW. Your nature is infinite and that experience is NOW. Perceive “other people” without memory and perceive the truth that is completely absent ALL fear. To be free of fear replaces “stress” with joy, because that is your nature as God conceived you.

M: How can I possibly know others without memory? How would I know who they are? How would I know their names? This makes NO sense.

J: Just as your identity is complete nonsense, so are the identities you project, because in each projection there is only YOU. There is NO “other.” Yet, only in the present can this be understood, because it is experienced THERE.

You have NO need of “names” for God KNOWS it all as absolutely PERFECT and your names merely deny this, but cannot negate it. Your “names” demand imperfection and this is what you judge and damn as guilty, because you have so damned your ‘self.’ You have allowed yourself only the power to judge, but judgment denies you the God given right to limitless CREATION. And what beauty you would KNOW if only “memory” did not determine the limits you impose upon NOW.

What you “name” you seek to control, while in the naming of delusions, you have given up control. God did not “name” you and because of that, you have NO limits. Apply a name to your “self” and you deny God’s gift.

M: But how could anyone know me without my name?

J: My "name" provides a history that has saved no one, simply because I have NO past. It was this that saved me. Yet, YOU have built churches to honor a history that only continues to curse YOU.

Christ is NOW. When the "name" is remembered, the TRUTH is denied. Deny me NO longer, because I AM YOU. I am every mind that denies a name.

Forget the names so that you may KNOW them by their fruits. This is the only way you will recognize your own. YOUR extension is always to YOU.

Freedom is the End of Self-Reliance

M: I’m victim to the body. It’s disruptions, diseases, disorders, addictions, etc. How am I supposed to ever be free of the body under these circumstances?

J: Learn what I teach and be free of ALL “circumstances.”

M: That’s your advice?? Just listen to you? I don’t expect that’s going to have any effect on what my body demands.

J: Your body demands nothing, but what you EXPECT. However, you believe I expect a great deal from you and this is why your allegiance remains with the body. Join with me and the body can NO longer make demands, simply because your expectations no longer rely on what the body tells you.

M: So what must I do to prove belief in you?

J: Nothing.

M: Nothing? What does that mean?

J: Belief in TRUTH requires you “do” nothing. In fact, the more I am WITH you, the less you will feel compelled to DO anything at all, which makes “doing” everything an entirely unique experience. Truth takes NO account of what you have DONE or what you will DO. You fail to understand truth, because you believe you must DO something to KNOW it. This is NOT God’s requirement, but yours.

Nevertheless, since you still EXPECT  to “do” something, it may be advantageous to place emphasis on what need NOT be done because, as you are beginning to see, all of your “doing” has amounted to little more than making YOU victim of YOUR world.

However, I recognize that NOT “doing” something is very difficult for you, since it equates to inactivity and lack of productivity. Yet, you will soon see that ALL the products of your actions that you believe of value have been meaningless, because the motivation was delusional.

The source of motivation determines the product of ALL actions. Motivation derived from delusion does NOT enact change but promotes repetition and this repetition is the world you experience.

M: So I should allow you to guide me in everything I do?

J: This is what you have asked for, but continue to reject. Nevertheless, when you do accept, you will then NO longer equate your successes with failure and your failures with success since, of your ‘self,’ you could never KNOW.

M: Unfortunately, life sometimes comes fast and furious and there may not be time to check in with you.

J: Indeed, it does require effort for you to LISTEN, since you have become accustomed to HEARING only the sick cackling of a delusional world. Nevertheless, effort must be made to listen until the decision becomes natural. When the choice to listen becomes the only choice that leads to peace, you will wonder why you had NOT made it long ago.

M: I’ve had to rely on myself for my entire life. I’ve had to learn from experience. You want me to just throw all that away?

J: If self-reliance has brought you consistent peace and an end to ALL your suffering, then to “just throw all that away” would be foolish. However, if this has not been the product of self-reliance, then why continue? Recognize that when you are NOT at peace, the world is NOT at peace, since there is nothing IN you that is not IN the world, regardless of how you seek to divide it into pieces and cast it away so that you can pick and choose what you wish.

Nothing need be thrown away, as this will only demand sacrifice and, what you feel forced to “throw away,” you will only value MORE. I simply teach that what you value has made you inadequate and impotent and if you value the body over the mind, then clearly you value inadequacy and impotence.

Your mind is so deeply enmeshed with the body, that if you could experience just one thought completely free of the body’s needs, you would experience a joy of unimaginable intensity. 

I will guide you to that ONE thought, but you will need to fully understand what you value and why. Otherwise, sacrifice will keep you chained to a body that you EXPECT to suffer.

Uncontained and Unlimited Content

M: I don’t know how to help these people. What do you suggest?

J: Allow them to help YOU.

M: Unfortunately, that’s not what they come for.

J: You have no idea what they come for, nor do “they,” and when you THINK you do, you are always mistaken. Fortunately, mistakes can be corrected when they are finally SEEN for what they are.

M: So how do I allow them to help me?

J: Look for your ‘self’ in them.

M: How would that help?

J: It will aid you in seeing them as beyond a body, which will aid you in recognizing your ‘self’ as more than you THINK. This is what they come for, because this is what you seek from them and so, this is what they seek from YOU.

M: How could I communicate with someone who is NOT a body?

J: On the contrary, you have yet to communicate WITH bodies, although you believe otherwise. This is because bodies cannot communicate. True communication is formless and to communicate through form communicates nothing. Of course, you do believe you “talk” to one another. Yet, if you remain deluded then clearly, nothing of value has been communicated.

M: But how would I know who I’m talking to if there wasn’t a body to reference and to speak to?

J: There is no “who,” but YOU.

M: That’s the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard! So I should speak to people as if they were me?

J: Other than the bodies which hide them, what makes you believe “they” are NOT you? How have you determined that “you” are NOT Them?

M: They obviously think and do things differently from me.

J: Certainly, bodies can seem to do all manner of things within the limits expected and this does “appear” to demonstrate differences. Yet, when I ask that you see your ‘self,’ I pay no heed to the body.

Forms, by nature, must change. Yet, content is infinite and therefore, never changes. No matter “who” you choose to perceive as different in form, the content is always equal. This could be experienced if “who” was NO longer considered.

“They” feel what you feel, think the thoughts you think, suffer as you suffer, fear what you fear, hurt as you hurt and desire happiness the same as YOU. Time may seem to break it up into exclusive moments, each one appearing separate from another, but “time” is delusional and their delusions are yours. They perceive the world you perceive and experience the same chains for which you seek to be free. They wish for release as do YOU, because THEY are YOU.

Release them!

In a million languages YOU speak to me. Yet, you do NOT listen, because the eyes and ears demand forms be true.

Only on the level of content can freedom be experienced, because only “there” is perfect equality and NO differences. Forms change and die, but there can be NO change to content, which is infinitely eternal. This is why you cannot die.

It is content that I teach and your body has no role in that, except in attaining obsolescence.

Content does NOT come from you, while the forms you imagine “real” are solely of your mind. In your world, because forms are different, it seems there are different fears and so you believe there are different ways to love. Forms demand fear, because differences are perceived. God’s LOVE knows NO such conditions.

M: A ten-year-old boy cannot have the same feelings and thoughts as a sixty-year-old man.

J: In relation to forms, this must be true, because you cannot relate to bodies without judging differences. Only content exists as perfectly equal and, therefore, TRUE. If a sixty year old man SEES a ten yr old boy, certainly he can only experience inequality if he judges by form. If he could experience beyond what the body judges by SEEING, he would experience a content of perfect equality with NO difference whatsoever. This is what you are HERE to experience, relationships SEEN only through content. SEE your ‘self’ in another and experience the perfect equality of that content.

M: That seems impossible!

J: Only when blinded by form. Forms multiply differences through complexity. The body’s only purpose is to act as a reference point for which to look beyond to what is completely UNCONTAINED and UNLIMITED. It serves no other purpose but that.

M: It’s just that people seem so completely different from me. What about beliefs? People believe differently than me.

J: Again, in relation to form, they must. Beyond the different thoughts of fear and your numerous conditions of love, the truth resides. Beliefs taught by the world are fixated on forms and are contained and limited by form. These beliefs must be different simply because you believe in different forms that do different things and, so it seems, must think different thoughts. They must BE different because they are NOT based in TRUTH and if they are not based in truth they thrive on INEQUALITY and cannot BE at all.

Truth is the same in all situations and in all circumstances and that is its one and only condition. That which does NOT meet those conditions is simply NOT true. Nevertheless, truth is the content of every mind, contrary the forms that serve to deny this.

Seek your truth in them, because you will NEVER find it alone. This is what they come for and what you seek from them. Anything else is victim to form and only seeks to hides content, because IT is feared.

There is Only One Mind and They Await Your Return

M: You say that I choose suffering. Why would I choose to suffer?

J: You see value in that choice, because you believe it defines you.

M: But I want to be at peace. I want to be happy.

J: Yet, you look to the world to make you “happy.” A world NOT at peace can give NO happiness, particularly when the purpose you give it is suffering. You then make compromises with suffering in order to extract some residue of what you refer to as “happiness.”

What God gives requires NO compromises for that gift to be experienced. If you see value in the world, then you value suffering in denial of God’s gift. However, just as you perceive suffering in your world, you could as easily perceive God’s gift, which is how you will know it has always been yours.

M: I’ve always had a real problem with this “God” thing. Never really was much of a believer.

J: The problem you HAVE is with the world, not God. God has NO “problem” with your world, only because God has NO problem with YOU. God knows only you and nothing of your delusions. If God does NOT believe IN it, how could it BE?

Fortunately, if the world cannot BE, then neither can suffering. A choice to suffer is a choice to believe that what has NO effect is actually a cause. You may deny this by accusing God of creating your “world,” but this belief merely prolongs suffering by your own decision, not God’s.

M: I agree the world is a place of suffering. But, I have an experience of the world and, whether it is an illusion or not, I’m willing to consider it because I experience it. However, I have no experience of God and so that seems beyond my consideration.

J: You have no experience of God because you understand God as taught by the world. If you do not love the world, how can you love its “gods”? The “gods” of the world demand suffering and sacrifice, but only because you believe this is the world’s purpose. You cannot experience both what is true AND what is false. Either you experience Truth or you experience what you make “true.” You cannot experience your world AND God. One must always cancel out the other from your mind.

M: So what other option is there? How can I experience God?

J: By believing in me.

M: But I do believe in you.

J: We have not talked for some time and this is because you doubt my validity. This dialogue does not conform to the reality you invent and so is easily negated by a mind invested in that “world.”

M: Yea, I figured that I just made this all up.

J: You HAVE made it all up.

M: What?? Then what good is that?

J: What you have yet to understand is that there is a part of YOU that realizes what I KNOW. This makes us equal. The difference is that I KNOW of us as equal and you have yet to learn.

M: I knew it! I’m fuckin’ crazy after all. So I’m just talking to myself?

J: And the entire world is a reflection of that conversation and IT too, is undeniably “crazy.” However, if you do not like what you experience, then you may wish to change the subject matter. I would suggest we continue to discuss God and from that conversation experience is assured, because belief will be strengthened.

M: So if I continue to talk to myself about God, I will experience God?

J: And change the world. But you must talk TO me. To believe in me is merely to correspond with that PART of you that is ALL of me, although I experience it as ALL OF YOU and you do NOT. I experience God, as will you when that part is KNOWN by you as I know it. The difference is that I KNOW nothing else, while you believe in many things that make no sense.

M: But I’m talking to you now and I don’t experience God.

J: You have yet to believe IN me.

M: But I thought you said I just made you up.

J: Just as you made up the world. However, if the world is NOT there, then I never existed. Nevertheless, you believe it is “there” and that I was once a part of it. Therefore, as you made the world, so have you made me. There are many parts to what is IN your mind, but YOU are the whole of it.

M: But you said there is a “part” of me that I don’t correspond with, but that you do.

J: It is the only part that is TRUE because you did NOT make it up. Nothing you have made is real and that includes your “self.” However, you do have need of me, just as you have need of a ‘world.’ Yet, your world was made to keep you IN, while you made me to guide you OUT. This is why you must believe IN me, so that you will come to believe IN yourself as containing the whole of what I AM.

You are the Christ Mind as is every mind. There are no PARTS to TRUTH

M: How can every mind be the Christ Mind, if my mind is the only mind. I thought you said the world was my invention?

J: Everything you see and hear, every “sensation” you experience, you conceive to insure your ‘world” as real so that your “self” remains intact and this part we have referred to as EGO.

Yet, neither the EGO or what it perceives is in any way truth. Therefore, it is simply NOT there.

M: But are there other minds?

J: The paradox that separate “individual” minds can never understand is that there is only ONE MIND and THEY await your return.
