The Curse of Perception

M: Why does this hurt so much?

C: If you add what does not belong you will suffer from what you insist is “real” but can never be TRUE. Discard what does NOT belong and free yourself from what you impose upon the experience of “you.” Make no mistake, the “world” is nothing more than the experience of your “self” from which you push away ALL that you have determined as NOT “you.”

Such attempts to control a delusional reality from within the delusion are destined to fail, because it only reinforces the power to be controlled by that which you determine as separate from you. There is nothing apart from your mind. Nothing leaves your mind and you are “there” as is everything you perceive as divided from you.

All fear merely attests to the fear of your own thought.

M: What doesn’t belong?

C: Everything you demand as “real” only blocks TRUTH by keeping the experience of your “self” in scattered pieces rather than WHOLE. Forcing “reality” to conform to your expectations creates defenses against the TRUTH of the whole by attacking the parts that you deem as separate from that wholeness.

What you determine as NEEDED can only defend against TRUTH, because TRUTH simply does not conform to the chaos of your separate and divided thoughts. Nothing you THINK reflects wholeness, but merely perpetuates the weakness inherent to the parts that you have expelled. You will expect attack from that which you banish and your thoughts currently reflect that constant preparation. Yet, what is a part of you cannot attack when it experiences the wholeness that only YOU can provide.

What belongs will be apparent by the fact that YOU have no need of it. This makes it free and clear of your conditions and you will experience the WHOLENESS inherent to that absence.

You will ONLY be increased by what comes to you without condition. 

Conditions are nothing more than your preparation for defense against that which you have expelled. You have expelled everything and that exclusion is evident by the very act of SEEING.

Your needs are the conditions from which awareness of “reality” is sculpted into chaotic pieces having NO purpose whatsoever. This does NOT reflect TRUTH, but results in “perception.” Yet, you fail to realize that the very act of perception slices up the whole into separate disparate parts. Therefore, you must understand that you can never experience wholeness through perception. Yet, you can give wholeness TO perception and be renewed by that unified experience.

M: So I should just give up all my needs?

C: You will ALWAYS suffer from what you evaluate and "perceive" as LOSS. In a world through which you must defend against the parts, there is NO capacity to perceive the TRUTH that is right before your “eyes.”

There can be no loss in TRUTH, because it takes nothing away and ONLY increases. Only perception looks for and sees loss.

But you fear you will be deprived and so you fear what TRUTH will give you. Through perception you demonstrate your fear of having everything and losing nothing. Hence, perception has cursed you with the need to judge between parts by what the parts contain. This weakens you because there is nothing in the parts but what perception provides by “seeing” it.


Yet, still, you do not believe “perception” a curse, but idolize it as a means of “survival.” You will “die,” but only because you “perceive” death and perception makes it true.
 
M: So I just have to recognize that I have NO needs? Again, another impossible task!

C: Indeed, for one who perceives NEED, the task appears insurmountable. Deprivation makes TRUTH seem unavailable, lost and in need of discovery. Why else would you have called on me if not to aid you in correcting this error?

M: So what about this particular situation?

C: What I teach applies to all situations. Your belief in “particular” situations is why you have yet to understand TRUTH.

There are no situations or events separate from TRUTH. There is only what you choose to experience either through TRUTH or through perception. If you encase TRUTH in the concepts you “perceive,” you will be controlled by an “outside” world.

However, you are free to change your thinking at any time and this “particular situation” can be of incalculable value toward that goal. But you must take direction from one who knows that value.

You have been here before many times over. Yet, of your “self,” you can only repeat the past, because your perception is a product of that past and you will only see what it teaches you.

M: So what do you want me to do?

C: Nothing

M: What do you mean “nothing”? I have to do something or things could go wrong.

C: Are you not yet weary of all your efforts? Have you not yet realized you have no basis for perceiving right or wrong? Are you not ready to let down your defenses in the realization that they have not served you?

Perception is a defense against TRUTH and your reliance on it fails to increase you. When you are ready you will give me ALL your experiences and I will show you how to see it ALL in TRUTH. I will show you that right and wrong are not part of TRUTH and you will be overjoyed with the understanding that you need not rely on perception as the means of making CHOICES. You will experience freedom beyond your wildest imaginings in the realization that you need do nothing at all.

Your mind languishes in a hell of your CHOOSING. What more could freedom be than an END to this?

In this "situation," do not decide you know what is best. Make no choices based on perception without first asking me what it means. Do not be afraid and have faith that you will learn and what you learn will naturally increase you as only the TRUTH can. You are already suffering because your egocentric perceptions mislead you into making choices that decrease you, causing you to experience weakness and loss. This wastes time and is completely unnecessary.

M: You want me to deny reality.

C: I ask that you deny the reality you have made, because it was made to be perceived apart from TRUTH.

God created TRUTH because God is TRUTH and so MUST you be. Nothing you “perceive” can change that FACT simply because what is separate from God cannot exist in TRUTH. You are NOT separate from God but your incessant need to “perceive” your world denies this FACT from you.

I teach only the TRUTH as it was placed within me and nothing else. I am the TRUTH and I AM in you as you are in me. You cannot “perceive” me, nor do I perceive you. We are joined as ONE through the mind that gave us life and that life cannot be experienced through perception.

Yet, the experience of that LIFE can completely alter perception and what you “see” will astound you, but only until the moment TRUTH dawns on you and perception ceases its hold as all remnants of the past evaporate like fallen raindrops in the hot midday sun.

This freedom awaits you my brother as it awaits ALL that you “perceive.” Perception can only whither and die under the magnificence of TRUTH.

No longer will you be troubled by choices that fail to summon TRUTH before your eyes. This is your inheritance and delay no longer in accepting what is yours, as it was given you upon your Creation. This dream is not your home. But it can serve to show you the way when it no longer serves any other purpose BUT that alone.

Truth is Known by Increase

M: Why does this hurt so much?

C: If you add what does not belong, you will suffer from what you insist be “real” but can never be TRUE. Discard what does NOT belong and be free from what you impose upon yourself.

What you superimpose upon experience diminishes you. 

Your attempts to control a delusional reality by manipulating your delusions must fail, because it only reinforces the power of what is not TRUE to control you.

M: What doesn’t belong?

C: Everything manipulated as “real" can only block TRUTH. Forcing “reality” to conform to your expectations demands you defend against TRUTH. What you determine as NEEDED defends against what is TRUE, because TRUTH does not conform to what you THINK and every experience is a product of your thought. Nothing is free of your mind and that is a law of God which you can NOT alter. You can deny it and this is the chief defining property of ALL your suffering.

M: So nothing I see, hear, touch or even think for that matter, is real?

C: It is ALL very “real” for you. Yet, it holds no TRUTH because it does NOT increase you.

TRUTH is known by increase. It cannot decrease, lose or take away. It cannot fade or change. It does not reduce, limit or obstruct. It does NOT suffer from deprivation because it is deprived of nothing. It is constant and has absolutely NO conditions because it is absolutely FREE. 

What belongs will be apparent by the fact that it is free of your conditions. Your conditions result from your belief in deprivation. You can ONLY be increased by what comes to you FREE, without condition. Your conditions are filters that channel awareness to what must be defended as separate from the WHOLE. Only what is separate do you refer to as “real.” Therefore, you know nothing as TRUE.

You believe constant increase is impossible and that everything must eventually decrease and die. Your needs arise from deprivation and are the conditions from which the “real” is constructed. The details are intensely imaginative and “real” for you, but completely delusional. “Real” is a delusional concept of your invention. TRUTH does NOT know of it, because TRUTH has an opposite.

M: So I should just give up all my needs?

C: You will ALWAYS suffer from what you evaluate as LOSS. In a world through which you experience deprivation, you have LOST the capacity to see the TRUTH that appears directly before your eyes.

There can be no loss in TRUTH, because it takes nothing away and ONLY increases. But you fear it will deprive you of your egocentric "reality" and so you fear what TRUTH will give because it will give you everything and you will lose nothing. That which is defined through deprivation will cease to exist when it has everything. Yet, if TRUTH increases everything then deprivation cannot possibly exist NOW, as that would be a lie. The logic of TRUTH is quite elementary, but is well hidden within the complexity of your egocentric concepts.

M: So I just have to recognize that I have NO needs? Again, another impossible task!

C: Indeed, for one who believes in deprivation, the task appears insurmountable. Deprivation makes TRUTH seem unavailable, lost and in need of discovery. Why else would you have called on me if not to aid you in correcting this error?

M: So what about this particular situation?

C: Your belief in “particular” situations is why you have yet to understand that TRUTH encompasses all experience. There are no situations or events. No episodes or moments. No days or months or years. There are no specific or particular experiences. There is, and can only ever be, one TRUTH, applicable in all cases.

If you lock away your experiences behind limiting concepts, you must only be imprisoned within the finite, conditional thoughts of your own mind. This is your “reality” and it is only your thinking that is deprived.

However, you are free to change your MIND at any time and this “particular situation” can be of incalculable value toward that goal if you so choose. But you must take direction from one who knows what that value is. You do recognize you have been here before and, of your “self,” you have NO recourse other than to repeat the past, because past thoughts have NO basis for existence in TRUTH.

M: So what do you want me to do?

C: Nothing.

M: What do you mean “nothing”? I have to do something.

C: Are you not yet weary of all your frantic efforts? What thought, concept or belief from the past will save you this time? Have you not yet realized you have no basis for determining right or wrong? Are you not yet ready to let down your defenses in the realization that they have not served you and, in fact, only perpetuate suffering? Does your “world” not demonstrate this to you?

When you are ready you will give me ALL your experiences and I will show you how to see it ALL as ONE. I will show you that right and wrong are not part of TRUTH and you will be overjoyed with the understanding that you need not CHOOSE any longer. You will experience freedom beyond your wildest imaginings in the realization that you need do nothing at all. Your mind languishes in a hell of your CHOOSING. What more could freedom be than an END to making the choice TO suffer?

In this situation, do not decide you know what is best. Make no choices without my counsel. Do not be afraid and have faith that you will learn and what you learn will naturally increase you, as only TRUTH can. learning that does not provide constant increase is ignorance. Is it clear to you now that, in all your years, you have learned nothing at all?

You have no means of accurate assessment. You are always wrong when you believe you are right and right when you are wrong. There can be NO difference in a dream of “reality” except what you decide and you do not have the means of deciding anything correctly because you have assessed it ALL as “real.” It is this evaluation that divides your world and tears it into opposing pieces and through these scattered pieces you define a “self” as part of the whole, thereby, denying that you tore it apart so as NOT to know the whole.

You are here to learn what YOU are and have called on me to teach you. Take rest in me and I will take up your burden and we will tread lightly together. Walk this dream with lightened steps and an ease to your gait, because you walk with one who knows the way out.

Interpreting Salvation

C: You interpret a need to suffer again?

M: I can’t help it. Things are not working out well.

C: How do you know that?

M: It’s what I experience.

C: Egocentric exclusivity demands ALL experience demonstrate a separation from your world. Inclusive oneness does not simply incorporate “other people,” but ALL that the mind perceives itself apart from.

Your salvation is based entirely upon interpretation, because you have the POWER to interpret yourself SAVED from the suffering of exclusivity into an inclusive whole and from that interpretation you ARE saved. God waits for you to make this decision and it is certain that YOU will.

M: So I just need to interpret myself saved and I’m saved?

C: Nothing more is needed. You interpret yourself in hell and, hence, this is your experience. If everything your mind shows you is THOUGHT, and I assure you it is ONLY that, then “hell” is simply an interpretation that you are separate from your own THINKING. You have invented THOUGHTS that you interpret as beyond your control. But how can this be if it is ALL your invention?

M: I still don’t see how this helps me.

C: Recognize that nothing in your world is what you have interpreted it to be and discard your interpretations as meaningless. You have learned nothing from them, except to unravel ever more absurd meanings from erroneous perceptions based on false interpretations. All previous interpretations are completely useless to you NOW.

The original interpretation that you are separate from God and, hence, from everyone in your “world,” made all subsequent decisions patently meaningless. You must correct the original interpretation before you will interpret your world correctly.

The dream unfolds as nothing more than an interpretation on you. The “world” conforms to what you interpret your “self” to be and not what the world determines you ARE. You interpret the world as oppositional to you when, in fact, you only oppose your “self.” You hate what you are, but seek a way to “love” yourself and this “loving hatred” is reflected back to you. Everywhere you look you perceive a world of other minds hating what the mind seems to show them, but desperately seeking for a way to love what they fear. This is how you interpret your “self” and, thus, it stands to reason that you would SEE your world this same way.

There can be NO peace to a confused mind split between interpretations of love and fear. Eventually, you must choose only one, because there is only one. This is what you have called on me to show you. Do NOT deny the purpose you give me.

M: If I made the world, why is it not the way I want?

C: The disorder and chaos of your world simply reflects the meaningless disorder of your mind. Yet, you continue to claim that it is “out there.” You refuse to accept your role and what is “out there” only reflects that refusal. You adjust your inner state to what you behold “outside” and inevitably suffer internally from what you make externally “real.”

You have sought out many situations as a means of finding “happiness.” Each situation brings you NO closer to what you seek, because you will not FIND it in a “world” that you have made as a means to HIDE it. Why insist on seeking what you have arranged can NEVER be found?

These situations must be interpreted in a way for PEACE to return. There is nothing that need be sacrificed for this to be LEARNED in every moment. If you could experience the Joy of God inherent to TRUTH, you would know this without doubt and peace would be experienced in every moment.

M: But you want me to surrender everything I believe in.

C: What GIFTS have your beliefs bestowed upon you? Have they alleviated your fear or ended your suffering? Have they given you infinite joy and peace? Have they provided you with a love conditioned on nothing, but love itself? Do your thoughts dissolve all conflict or merely further reinforce opposing conditions? Have you ever experienced JOY from what you believe and is that JOY transferable to your "world”?

If not, then why would you wish to keep “believing”? What purpose do your beliefs serve except to perpetuate what came before and why would you wish more of the same?

It is inherent to your God given free-will to believe whatever you should choose and how you respond to your world immediately demonstrates what you have chosen. I merely teach that there is another choice available, because this is what you ask of me.

Do not determine your role in any situation. Make no decisions on what you wish to happen or on what outcome you feel is best. Make no judgments on what you want and await what will be shown to you because YOU have asked for it. Understand that if you feel deprived or discouraged in any moment, then you have decided in error and ask for correction.

Your feelings can be used to measure your distance from TRUTH. When you allow TRUTH to guide you, you will feel measurably INCREASED beyond anything you have ever experienced. Nothing from the PAST can insure this increase. Hence, believe that you DO NOT KNOW and believe nothing else, because no other belief has the power to save you from the hell you have made by what you believe.

Dreams Do Not Leave The Mind Of The Dreamer

M: Actually, what I’ve noticed recently is that, since these conversations, I’ve been experiencing more stress in my life than before. I sometimes think trying to learn what you teach is causing me more problems because I’m trying to attain what is totally unattainable.

C: Your need to experience “problems” has not changed, because you identify with deprivation and every problem symbolizes an absence of what you insist will “save” you.

However, your desperation for freedom from your problems is obviously intensifying as you begin to learn that FREEDOM has always been available to the MIND, but never the body. There will come a time when you will think with me always, in the realization that the ‘self’ you rely on to make use of a body cannot free your MIND. Yet, you continue to believe it is a sacrifice to free your MIND of what the self makes “real.” You believe “happiness” is out there and must be found. Hence, you stand before the bridge, but fear crossing.

M: I feel I should be farther along than I am.

C: The idea that you are NOT yet “there,” is the one idea currently inhibiting progress. You are THERE and only one last step must be taken before you see what you have come to see. You may take that step now or wait a thousand more years, but it is certain you WILL cross.

You still seek for evidence of change to “appear” in your world. The world will always witness to your state of mind. NOTHING changes without your WISH, but you wish only for what you know and you know NOTHING.

Do not rely on “perception” to teach you that you know NOTHING, because perception will teach you that NOTHING is "something" and you will learn from the PAST. There is NO progress in going backward. I offer you a future absent all past and in that, you will experience a present never before known.

You have begun to use your “problems” to negate what I teach and deny TRUTH. You claim that since your problems have increased, I must be a fraud.

This idea only serves to support your weak imagination, which the dream can only reflect back to you, in contradiction to my teaching that your strength is beyond the weakness you now imagine real.

Weakness always distrusts what it sees and sees only what must be distrusted as means of reinforcing its weakness, which it claims as "strength." You are beginning to trust in ME and this can only increase your trust in THEM, because to FULLY trust in me, you must FULLY trust in THEM. This closes the gap that you imagine separates you from your world.

M: So I have to rely on others to awaken from my dream?

C: The dream of “you” is yours and there are NO “others.” God did NOT create divided minds to occupy separated and estranged bodies as means to oppose one another. It is your dream and therefore, what happens is always a product of your request.

When you no longer demand the past define the present, you will understand all your experiences as ONE and that ONE experience will naturally awaken YOU from your dream.

THEY can teach you that you are only dreaming, because it is what you will teach THEM. Every moment you push them away, every time you curse what the dream shows you, you keep them and yourself in HELL.

M: How do I teach anybody anything when I don’t know anything?

C: There is a part of you that can teach a different purpose for what you imagine as “real.” It is from “there” I came and it is to there we BOTH will return.

That part has never left God and is inextricably bound to TRUTH. That part is completely whole and is NOT aware of separate THOUGHTS opposing one another. It can only teach what it knows and it will teach you to see the wholeness of your dream, since the only means of awakening from a dream, is to see it ALL as you have made it.

A dream does NOT leave the mind of the dreamer.

Teach THEM that they are also dreaming and you will learn that from THEM. However, determine that they are right or wrong in any way and they will teach you to oppose them.

Think of everything you want and teach the opposite. This will aid you in corresponding with the part of you that is unaware of egocentricity and is, therefore, NOT dreaming of opposites.

M: The only part of me I know of is living and interacting in the world.

C: You look to your world to teach you what you ARE and you will learn what “you” have taught it. There is more to YOU than your world can ever show you, but you must show that to your world. Let go of everything you THINK you are and you will discover what you are in TRUTH. Do not be afraid that you will falter or fail because you do not follow the rules of the dream. Realize that you are ruler of the dream and the rules will dissolve before your eyes.

M: Why would I dream certain experiences and not others? Why is my dream specifically as it is? Why are certain people a part of my dream?

C: You wish to learn that there is nothing to fear in a dream made of fear. You are its maker and you have asked me to teach you this, because you know it MUST be true.

This radically alters the dream into a cause for rejoicing, because a mind completely free of fear cannot but rejoice because it is FREE. Make no purpose for THEM other than this and you will learn from THEM what you teach. Free THEM of your concepts and THEY will free YOU from the prison of your own. This is THEIR only purpose, because it is YOUR only purpose. What other purpose could you set for THEM but this? What other purpose could your world serve but to free it and yourself?

Nevertheless, you have specified many purposes for parts of your dream and this has only kept you from awaking. Separate thoughts can only conflict and oppose one another and your world reflects those opposing ideas.

Your experience of a “world” would be completely different if ALL ideas were equal. All ideas IN a dream are equal because they are ALL NOTHING. The “happy” times and the “sad,” the moments you have cursed in rage and those moments in which you THOUGHT you had finally found joy. Not one of them was real. Invest the dream with any special moments in time and you will NOT awaken from a dream world constructed entirely FROM the delusion of time.

This is NOT where you belong and you have never really felt as though you belonged here and that feeling intensifies. You are beginning to see the absurdity of your chaos. But you must take my hand else you will dream of your destruction and accept it as “real.”

You cannot die, but you can dream of death and, because of the absolute incredible power of your mind, you will believe it.

Your Commitment to Symbols


M: Now that my marriage is over, should I seek for love again?

C: Seeking for “love” through a symbolic reality can only end in failure because symbols are not real.

M: Well, I’d rather not live the rest of my life alone.

C: Would that be any different from what preceded? You have surrounded yourself with bodies, but only to further symbolize your estrangement from TRUTH because you fail to use the symbols to realize TRUTH.

All the symbols of your dream serve the purpose of either waking from the dream or remaining victimized by it. Your current actions demonstrate the choice you have made. However, your FREE-WILL offers you the ability to choose again.

M: So I should not commit to doing anything?

C: You are FREE to “commit” to whatever you wish in a “world” you demand symbolize “reality.” But what is the purpose of committing to symbols?  Would you rather not commit to REALITY? 

You must also recognize your ‘self’ as symbolic of what is past and, therefore, only capable of repeating what was learned. In that recognition, you will understand that you have NO idea what you want, nor could you ever. 

Choosing between symbols seems to demonstrate differences. Nevertheless, the symbols merely serve to hide the fact that NOTHING is there, but what you demand be present.

You are “committed” to your LOVE of symbols and believing in what is NOT real is the very foundation of your suffering. 

However, the pain of this recent experience, which you symbolize as failure, has the capacity to successfully accelerate your learning by symbolizing a greater openness to guidance. You are beginning to contemplate the notion that you do NOT KNOW what any of your symbols really mean. 

Nevertheless, you still remain resistant and staunchly “committed” to choosing a symbolic representation to SAVE you. Symbols cannot save, but only victimize.

M: So the people in my dream are only symbols?

C: Do you not see that you have made a purpose for everyone you encounter? You believe that purpose was there before the encounter, but this is clearly in error. You have set the purpose for everyone you meet and if they seem to rebel from that purpose, you have asked for that as well.

M: I suppose I just want things to work out right.

C: And always based on the delusional idea that you could even KNOW the difference between which symbols are right or wrong. I teach that they are neither, being only symbolic.

The only goal to accept for every situation is that you do NOT KNOW. This allows you to learn HEALING from the symbols you call on, in the understanding that ALL experiences are provided by YOU and can symbolize whatever you wish for them. 

There is a deeper part of you unknown to the surface desires of an egocentric dream. A part that is aware of the whole, because it IS whole. Through a more effective use of your fragmented symbols, it will help you experience that wholeness.

M: It does seem that I forever go over the same problems, the same anger and resentments, the same reactions, time and time again. It all gets repeated over and over.

C: The problem is always the same IF you continually seek an answer from what only symbolizes a PAST and, make no mistake, without a past the “self’ you believe real could NOT be known. Although the dream seems to show you changing circumstances and situations, the chaotic foundation of the self never changes. It is always chaos and from this you make decisions that merely perpetuate that foundation.

Let go of every purpose you would establish for every experience you encounter and learn the TRUTH that it will reveal ONLY when you surrender what you think it SYMBOLIZES. You have yet to recognize the deep peace that will envelop you when you engage the symbols of your dream without expectation, without hope and, hence, without fear. Expectations and hopes born of fear merely perpetuate suffering by repeating the past.

YOU were NOT created to formulate expectations from what you would hope is “true.” You were created to experience the pure certainty of TRUTH. Yet, nothing you now hope for will allow that light to shine on you, because “hope” born of the past fears, keeps you shrouded in darkness. You have the God given potential to SEE. Yet, nothing can be seen in darkness.

In your “world” you invest your hopes in a reality which only symbolizes the fragmentation born of FEAR. There is nothing you need hope for in God’s world, because everything you need is provided in pure certainty and nothing in your world will show you that until you accept it as TRUE. 

Surrender all your hopes and have FAITH only in certainty.

Infinite and Unimaginable Joy

M: If this is a “dream” why do I have so many problems to deal with? It’s like I just go from one problem to the next.

J: A dream can have NO problems, being ONLY a dream.

Failing to see this is your only problem. Seek out every “problem” you can find and immediately recognize it is solved.

M: You want me to look for problems?

J: Is that NOT what you do? Do you not superimpose the past upon a future in fear of the present? You lament those you claim as “addicted,” but find you own incessant need to repeat your suffering completely acceptable.

M: Problems just pop-up. I don’t seek them out.

J: FEAR compels you to make repetition REAL and the world never fails to demonstrate what you wish to SEE until you NO longer wish to see it. The power of your mind is beyond imagining. Yet, when everything it imagines is founded on fear, what you imagine “real,” you will NOT LOVE. Imagine what you could SEE if fear were completely banished from your mind. Imagine what your world would then show you. Imagine what LOVE could give you when you extend beyond what you now imagine as “popping up.”

Nevertheless, at present, you continue to endure your own self-imposed moratorium on imagination. From large intractable problems to inconsequential and petty annoyances, life is a tedious repetition, interspersed with episodes of hope that "things may one day get better." Unless you choose another guide, fear will accompany you to the grave, because its only purpose is to take you “there.”

Make no mistake, in any moment that you do not experience UNIMAGINABLE joy, then you have IMAGINED fear as guide and everywhere you look, fear will show you ONLY what it teaches, and you will learn ONLY that. 

M: Unimaginable joy??? So I should feel joy when I’m sick?

J: It is never too late to double back and correct what was DECIDED in error, since clearly sickness is indicative of a poor choice. Just as cause precedes effect, your goals MUST always precede what you experience. Sickness is only an effect of the goal that caused it. Recognize your goal is in error and simply correct it.

However, you MUST first recognize the error, because there is NOTHING that comes to you against your willingness that it be received.

M: I still cannot comprehend that all the recent shit that has piled up on me is purely of my doing. That is beyond my ability to understand.

J: Presently, understanding is not necessary, but the acceptance born of FAITH is crucial to changing the dream. You do NOT understand the world you have made “real” but, ironically, you do have faith in it being “real.” Faith arising from error made it real, but only for you. I ask that you have faith that you have perceived in error.

What you have imagined “real” is astounding and beyond ALL logic. Yet, it only attests to the incredible power of your THINKING. You have imagined real an entire “world” and then made that world the cause of your imagining, simply as means of denying GOD.

You have made your ‘self’ God, then punish yourself for your arrogance and impunity by demanding the world claim guilt for your “birth.” This is insane. Yet, you DO believe it.

M: You want me to have no desires, no dreams, hopes or goals. You want me to live as if I were not me. This is impossible!

J: Have you not yet tired of your choices? Choices that lead no closer to freedom each and every time one is made? Are you not yet exhausted from your repetitive efforts to achieve some sense of consistent “happiness”? Have you not yet learned that you have no basis for which to make such choices?

What you accept as “natural” is completely absurd. There is nothing natural about your world because there is nothing natural to a mind severed from TRUTH. It is deluded and what delusion sees cannot be TRUSTED and you will NOT love what you do NOT trust. You do NOT love your world. If you could only recognize the infinite peace that will overcome you once you give up your DISTRUST.

Let your world come to you of its own accord and accept what you receive in the realization that you could NOT decide otherwise. This will provide you the opportunity to experience change.

The experience of a complete and total break with all forms of fear is beyond your ability to imagine, only because every FORM you experience is imagined from fear. Fear has determined the FORM of everything in your “world.” Form has NO other purpose but to impose limits and your world demonstrates nothing but limitation.

Understand that the forms cannot touch you, for you have only imagined them.

M: So I can run out in front of a Mac truck and it’ll pass right through me?

J: If you could ONLY imagine it, then it could ONLY be true. What you experience is a poverty of imagination that can look NO further because it is stifled by fear. However, as fear recedes imagination yields to ever greater awareness which only perpetuates ever greater degrees of joy. Your joy is not yet infinite and continues to be limited by the FORMS you imagine “real.” You identify your ‘self’ with a poverty of imagination, born of a mind that fears itself.

Soon, however, you will let loose from your resistance and new experiences will happen very rapidly. You will imagine things beyond what has been THOUGHT “real” up to now. You are beginning to see how tightly you hold to your conditions. You are beginning to sense there might be another way. Yet, you are still haunted by the fear of sacrifice and clutch rigidly to what you see. There is much you have imagined that you refuse to let go.

M: I could let go of my attachment to many things. But there is still much that I don’t yet want to give up because it’s needed.

J: Only because you do NOT yet believe there is another way and another world in which NOTHING IS “needed.” You have the means of seeing differently, if you would only release yourself from fear. There is much I wish to show you. But you refuse to look and I cannot MAKE you see. As a guide, I can only show the way. You must choose to follow.

M: So how do I let go of fear?

J: First you must recognize that you fear EVERYTHING because, if EVERYTHING is not cause for consistent joy, then it must be fear within that looks out.

M: I don’t fear my dog.

J: Again, if what you perceive is not cause for consistent joy, then sight is afflicted by fear. This is the only “rule” necessary to understand the means of dissolving fear. You needn’t worry about the forms through which fear is experienced, as you have made them too countless to consider.

M: Well, I’m not exactly experiencing joy right now. But I don’t feel fearful either.

J: If fear is the foundation, then joy has nowhere to stand. Fear has determined your perception for much too long.

M: There’s just nothing for me to be joyful about right now.

J: Seeking a cause from the world only reinforces fear. Experience extracted from a “world” only denies your origin and makes you victim to a “world” that did NOT create YOU. I teach be joyful that it is ONLY a dream. Teach this to others and experience it for yourself.

M: How do I teach people this is only a dream, when I don’t believe it myself?

J: Teach it to learn it.

M: If it’s a dream, then what difference would it make what I did?

J: If the dream is yours, then what you do TO it, you do TO yourself. This must be understood before you can awake from the dream.

Dissolving Conditions Preemptively

M: I do not have the ability to love unconditionally. There are some people I just flat out don't like. This stuff you teach is impossible to apply in the world.

J: I teach only your mind, for “there” is where all conditions reside and not in a “world.” You must first dissolve the conditions derived from your own fear, before your world will demonstrate peace. Any grievance held against another merely applies further conditions to what is not "there."

M: So the world is in my mind?

J: Where else do you experience it?

M: But I have very little control over those experiences, because they occur outside my mind.

J: Nothing leaves the mind. Full control is contingent on your learning this above all else. Until then, you will believe you are under the control of what is experienced, allowing a denial of responsibility. There is nothing outside your mind. Nothing enters and nothing leaves. Everything remains firmly within you, waiting for YOU to see it as such. See the wholeness of that and be relieved of the suffering experienced from separate parts.

M: What do you mean “see the wholeness”? How do I do that?

J: Accept the WHOLENESS of what you experience by relieving it of what it means to you and see the interdependent connection between all the parts of your dream. It is the meanings you apply to the images you experience that denies you the freedom of seeing it all at once. Such a sweeping vision will leave you breathless, but only for the moment it takes to realize that truth is not a part of your dream.

Do NOT dismiss even the tiniest, most insignificant experience to show you this wholeness.

If you look to the parts to explain the dream, you will misinterpret your ‘self’ as other than dreamer. This is why you now SEE your dream as REALITY.

M: How can I possibly be aware of everything?

J: You need NOT seek out. I merely ask that you NOT DISMISS. Every miniscule speck that seems to arise into awareness by chance, comes to you of your own volition and it was DECIDED long before the experience appeared. This is how you have made your world.

Nothing comes to you by accident and nothing you experience is victim to chance. 

M: How can I not judge what I experience in order to make decisions? Things have to be decided.

J: This is why you must decide BEFORE experience. The goal MUST be decided prior to every situation.

Your mind must be trained to dissolve conditions preemptively.
 
Otherwise, your experiences will continue to demonstrate that you are victim to “chance,” because ALL goals you determine must take chance into account. Do not consider chance any longer. It does not exist.

M: I have no idea what’s going to happen until it happens and even when I do hope for something to happen a certain way, it rarely ever does happen as I hope.

J: Hope that is victim to chance is a weak idea with little power to alter the dream. Because you believe in chance, your “hope” must always be victim to those conditions. Hence, there is always the belief it may not turn out as you would like and this merely gives CHANCE the power to prove itself in CONTROL.

There is nothing that happens in your world by chance. Believe this and take responsibility for every opportunity to HEAL. This allows you the ability to achieve a sense of peace in your dream that will only alter the conditions you have imposed.

Your goal is merely to fully engage your dream in the recognition that chance plays no part in your experiences. Do NOT allow the ego to teach you by remaining aware of the goals you “hope” for, simply let them go. They were built on the foundation of ever shifting sands, that only chance can provide.

M: You’re just saying that everything happens for a reason.

J: Just not any “reason” you could choose.

M: So I should live my life with no hope of anything?

J: Hope of awakening to your salvation brought me to YOU, because it is derived from CERTAINTY, although you continue to see it as merely a chance possibility, if possible at all. My voice lends credence to that certainty because I am a product of it. Your hope of anything other than this must remain victim to CHANCE.

M: Well, if you know everything with certainty, then why don’t you just tell me what to do all the time?

J: This is what you have called on me to do. Why then, do you fail to LISTEN?

M: Because I don’t believe in the certainty of you.

J: But it is certain that you will, because it is the only certainty you will ever KNOW. Your only goal in every situation is to rely on that alone. Your ultimate FREEDOM rests upon this foundation because it is much stronger than anything “hope” could ever bring.

The freedom inherent to God’s certainty is insured and grants the power to move mountains. This power rests with YOU and it is certain you will KNOW it when you surrender your HOPE for what you think you NEED instead of what is ALREADY given.

I Will React For You

M: So how long do I have to experience this pain in my chest?

J: Until you recognize your complete and absolute innocence. Yet, as long as they are guilty, so must you be. Free them and you free yourself. Make no mistake, all emotional pain is your determination to bind someone to your conditions.

M: I don’t even know what I’m guilty of!

J: You dream of a world absent LOVE and such a “world” will always be guilty of proving what you demand be “real.” That is its only purpose and it will never veer from the direction you EXPECT. Such is the immense and infinite power of your mind. Yet, you have used that power to dream of ABSENCE and loss. You cannot escape the power of your mind, because you did NOT create it. However, you can learn to use it for its intended purpose.

God’s world proves ONLY love and ONLY the innocent can SEE it.

M: I will never believe I made reality.

J: You have “made” your dream a reality. You have split responsibility in two, giving to your world what you do not wish to claim for yourself. I teach that you are fully responsible for ALL of it.

You will only learn this by changing how you REACT to what you have denied. Not one part of your world is free of you, nor is any part of you apart from it. Accept every part as yours and free it from guilt. It is guilty of nothing because it provides ONLY what you are determined to see.

M: So how do I take responsibility for my reactions?

J: You believe responsibility lies not in the experience, but ONLY the reaction do you accept as yours. You have spent your life learning to perfect your reactions to chance. To learn that you are fully responsible for experience you must surrender ALL responsibility for reaction to ME.

The interval between experience and reaction you call “time.” IN time, your reaction has the capacity to teach you that your experiences are delusional, because there is NO separation between what you experience and how you react. Yet, only if you give ALL your reactions to me, can you learn this as TRUE.

You can only react through fear, because your fear made the experience “real” before the reaction entered your mind. I KNOW that ALL your experiences are delusional and, hence, I have NO fear. A changed reaction MUST alter experience, because you will no longer respond from what you think is true, but from what I KNOW is true. I know that, although NOTHING you experience is TRUE, NOTHING is based on chance.

M: In order to take responsibility, I have to allow you to judge my experiences for me?

J: In order to learn YOU are responsible, you must close the gap between what you experience and how you react. I will help you.

In a world you react to as “real,” there is no teacher free of your fear. I am not OF your world, because I have transcended the very fear that made it ALL possible. Why else would you have called on me, if you did not believe this were TRUE?

When you learn that ALL experience is a unified whole, ALL your experiences will be free of fear and you will react miraculously. 

M: I can’t trust you, simply because you’re in my head.

J: If ALL experience is in your “head,” the most effective teacher must be there as well. How else will you learn to trust yourself, if not by trusting ALL your experiences to provide the TRUTH that is always with YOU? In the realization that ALL experience resides within you, there can be NOWHERE else to turn. This is an experience of great joy, because it means you are FREE.

M: But I thought you said it was only a dream.

J: And when you KNOW this, why would you NOT trust ALL your experiences to teach you this without fail?

M: What about my experiences of other people.

J: “Other people” clearly serve a profound purpose. Yet, you refuse to accept that purpose and so your experiences fail to teach the TRUTH. Accept that purpose and be saved. The reason you have NOT accepted me, is that you do NOT accept them. That is their ONLY purpose.

M: I believe they are more real than you.

J: Indeed. Yet, even this has not helped you to accept, which only demonstrates that “real” means nothing in your “world.” Accept THEM… and know ME, for I am free of delusion.

M: So their only purpose is for me to accept them?

J: How else would you finally KNOW yourself and why else would you now fail to understand who you are? This is a Law of Mind that you did not legislate and, fortunately, it is beyond your control to change. What you extend into the dream has the power to awaken the whole dream. But it MUST be extended to be KNOWN.

You have imposed conditions to a dream in which all must suffer. You do not wish for this, but you dream it is impossible to change and so, you have accepted this condition instead of those who have the power to SAVE you, because you granted it. Accept them without condition and awaken from the dream.

M: I cannot accept everything that people do.

J: And so guilt must prevail in a dream made mad BY guilt. Only total innocence can set you free to awaken.

M: You’re asking for unconditional love and that’s impossible. No one can do that.

J: No one need but you, because you imposed the conditions that make up your ‘world.” You have set the standards of what possibilities can be imagined and that is exactly what you SEE. If you have constructed the prison, then only you have the power to unlock the gates.

You believe your experiences are victim to CHANCE. However, if you look more closely you will see that every experience you claim to recall, as of a shadowy “past,” has led you to this point. Your learning has always been certain, but your denial of this fact is the sole cause of your suffering through the guilt of being LOST. You are NOT lost, because chance is only a condition of your dream. God’s reality is certain and hence, there can be no CHANCE of being LOST or of losing anything.

Conditions must be imposed when you imagine a “world” governed by the hopelessness of chance. Believe in your certainty and allow not one experience to be governed by the reckless and ungovernable. Recognize every experience as one of necessity and watch the conditions dissolve before your very eyes.

Your awakening is as certain as your CREATION. How could it be otherwise? Believe in that absolute certainty and take joy in what the dream provides, knowing you have granted ALL provisions. It will give you what you need, when you no longer give IT to chance.

M: So if my dream “provides” me with cancer, I should take joy in that?

J: There is no other means of dissolving the limits you provide except by realizing they do NOT limit you. You pick and choose what experiences you would learn this from and this merely delays KNOWING, because every experience holds the promise of awakening. I teach that all experiences have the power to heal centuries of limits when you allow me to react for you. Delay no longer. Each moment of a dream has the potential to wake you to a REALITY well beyond the farthest reaches of any “existence” you could ever dream as “real.”

You Always Get What YOU Need

M: I feel so deeply alone, that it actually feels physically painful.

J: If you continue to rely on your ‘self,’ you will continue to miss the opportunities to heal your pain. All experiences invite healing. Do not decide for your ‘self,’ because you have no idea what you NEED and what you WANT has always failed to heal your suffering.

M: But when I really need you, you’re not there.

J: The union we share is infinitely indivisible. We can never part. I am always “there” and you will know that without doubt when you choose to listen. When you do NOT choose to listen, you will ALWAYS make the wrong choices in the belief that the correct advice was not available. Your world cannot give you that advice and nothing it has ever taught you can help you now.

M: You know why I hurt so bad.

J: Your incessant resistance makes you very hard to love, but your creation made you infinitely lovable. Do not decide for your “self” what any relationship means for you, because of your ‘self’ you could not KNOW and, repeatedly, your suffering is ONLY the belief that you DO. Until you KNOW, every choice made is the wrong choice, because it comes from fear. Fear knows NOTHING but itself and can only chronically replicate what it teaches. It has provided the same lesson for centuries and can teach nothing else.

Love knows NO proximity. No space or time. What it teaches is eternal, because it has no finite boundaries and is conditioned upon nothing but your decision TO love. When you think of her, do not think of what you gave up or lost, but think of what you gained and you have gained more than you are prepared to recognize at present. Yet, have faith that I see what you currently cannot. It will be shown to you when you are ready to SEE.

What you determine as loss, is always a success. However, what you claim as successful, merely keeps you lost. Those who cannot make such determinations on their own require guidance.

M: But that won’t bring her back. That won’t correct the mistakes I made.

J: No mistakes are made, only failed interpretations of success. I told you before that your every move is certain. There can be NO mistakes in the certainty of TRUTH and nothing that is REAL, is ever free of that condition. Why resist what is certain? Wouldn’t you rather learn from it?

It is certain that you would be here now and suffering through that which you have suffered through countless times before. Each situation seems different but, if you look closely, you will recognize that the suffering is ALWAYS the same.

You are getting closer to the full realization that you have no idea what you NEED. This will open you up to guidance. However, because of your resistance, we are not quite there yet, as you continue to guide your ‘self’ believing I am absent.

I am always with you. Seek me out before any decision is made, so that I can assure you of its certainty.

M: I cannot tell the difference between you and my own ramblings.

J: You will know my voice, because your heart will sing from every message given. Yet, it may not come as “words.” Messages await all your senses, when you are open to guidance. But do not await the message you look to receive. Receive the message that is given you to SEE. When you are fully open to guidance, such are the messages you will rejoice in.

M: Right now I’m sitting out a hurricane. What message is that?

J: That soon your suffering MUST end. Do you see that?

M: No.

J: Then you look to receive a message that cannot be given, because it is NOT what you WANT. What you think you WANT is never what you NEED. This MUST become apparent to you before you will actually ask and receive what you WANT.

You must know what you want before it can be given. The reason you have yet to know what you WANT is because you have NO idea what you NEED. As a result, when you find what you NEED, and you ALWAYS do, you throw it away, thinking it is NOT what you WANT. Only then do you realize, not long after, that it was indeed NEEDED.

You are at this juncture once again and you will be here many more times, until you decide that you DO NOT KNOW. When that decision is made, everything will come to you as NEEDED, because it is what you WANT.

All you have ever wanted, above all your mad chattering, is to find the deep and abiding peace of God. You have not found that peace because you mistrust those who show you the way. You believe it is NOT what you want and so, you are deeply in NEED of it right now. Accept that you do NOT know the way and the way will be shown.

M: Will I ever find love

J: If that is what you NEED, then you will have what you WANT. But there cannot be opposition, else one can only negate the other and you will have what you have now. Is love what you need or have you lost sight of it because of what you want?

M: I thought it was. Then I thought it wasn’t, but now I believe it is. I guess I really don’t have any idea what I want or need.

J: Hold firmly to the thought that you DO NOT KNOW.

Contemplate it fully and consider it very deeply. When you finally give up deciding, the knowledge will come to you. However, if you do NOT yet know, then you still believe you can decide on your own and, hence, understanding will escape you entirely. KNOWING comes very simply from recognizing that you DO NOT KNOW. There is NO other way to accept God’s message than to decide that immediately. When that decision is finally made, and made fully, everything you NEED to know will become instantly apparent and your world will show it to you and you will rejoice in what you see.

M: So I just need to believe that I don’t know what anything is for? That’s it?

J: Yes, it is a very simple thing. Nevertheless, this simple task you resist with the gravitational force of ten trillion suns.

M: But it means giving up control of my life!

J: It means giving up control of your suffering. This is all your “life” has ever been, a dream in which the dreamer dreams he is at the mercy of forces beyond his control. A dream in which, decisions made, only keep the dreamer dreaming the mad idea that awakening is impossible.

M: So I shouldn’t decide to take vitamins or eat right? I shouldn’t decide to go to work or pay my bills?

J: Do anything you decide, but make no decisions out of fear. You must learn the difference.

M: It still hurts…

J: Do NOT run from your success by seeing it as failure. You do NOT know the difference. You have asked to learn. Do not decide for yourself what need be taught.

M: So I will always get what I need?

J: Always, without fail, no matter how you define it in the moment it comes. See everything as NEEDED and learn from the lessons that are meant ONLY for you

Only a Dream (pt.2)

M: It’s damn near impossible to interact with the world as if it were a dream.

J: So the ego informs you, as it MUST. It cannot possibly see it as ONLY a dream, because its very existence is contingent on the dream being “real.” The eyes of the body cannot help a “self” that demands the body define IT. Your goal is to see beyond what the body’s eyes show you, because what the eyes see is not “there,” nor are there "eyes" that SEE.

It must no longer matter, because the body is as much a dream as the eyes that seem to prove the “world” REAL. If everything that you are aware of is ONLY a dream, all must be included and nothing excluded from that WHOLE. If the world is ONLY a dream, your body is also a part of that and, hence, the “self” that believes it is a body is itself ONLY a dream.

M: So how do I interact with a dream? If my life is a dream, how do I then live it?

J: Fear makes it REAL. There is NO reason to fear a dream, simply because it is NOT real. You have NO idea of what you would experience if you were free of all fear. This is impossible for you to comprehend because your “self” is nothing more than an aggregate of fearful THOUGHTS.

Therefore, to be absent ALL fear would result in your experiencing an absence of “self” and this is terrifying to you. I teach that God did not create a void. You voided what God created in your mind and replaced it with the meaningless. I assure you that when you dissociate from ALL your meanings you will not experience emptiness, but will be filled with indescribable joy.

M: I just dreamed up my children?

J: The ego manufactures experiences in the dream that support its being more than ONLY a dream. YOU must learn that it is ONLY a dream and this includes all the parts you have invested meaning in. You invest in many attachments and associations as meaningful. You must see them as ONLY a dream. Otherwise, you will sabotage your efforts to awaken by remaining victim to what is ONLY a dream.

The parts you “love” will hurt you and you will seek revenge and retribution, because love is not possible in a dream. Yet, it is much easier to forgive, when it is ONLY a dream. When the dream is forgiven in its entirety, you will awaken to your REALITY.

You are invulnerable to attack when it is ONLY a dream. You are free to engage all parts without fear, because, when you have come to realize it is ONLY a dream, you will no longer FEAR any part of what is NOT real.

When you understand that it is ONLY a dream, you will dance joyfully upon the stars until the sun rises and you reach out to embrace it. It is your dream, my brother, and it can be whatever you choose, because it is ONLY a dream.

M: Then how do I manipulate the dream to make it what I want it to be?

J: You can rule the dream, simply by allowing no part of it to rule YOU. Nothing more than this is necessary. You must see that no part of the dream can hurt you, nor have you need to protect from attack in what is ONLY a dream.

M: So when can I stop paying taxes?

J: When the whole is denied, the parts are free to victimize. Parts detached from the whole have lost purpose and engage in meaningless, chaotic pursuits. This is what your dream shows you. See it in WHOLE and the parts will fall away from your own awareness, because they are no longer detached from the whole and no longer need suffer through the purposeless activities that you have assigned. Until you see the whole as ONLY a dream, you will be antagonized by the parts in the mistaken belief that they can affect you.

M: Nobody else in the world acts as if this is a dream.

J: God did not create separate, disconnected parts. Only that which THINKS it can detach from TRUTH could “dream” of such a thing. Yet, it is ONLY a dream and TRUTH remains unchanged by your dreaming. When you awake, that will become immediately apparent. The only true joy you will ever experience IN  your "world," is in realizing the TRUTH that you are not “there.”

M: So nobody is real? I dreamed them all up?

J: You are not “real.”

A mind dreaming it can be victimized by other separate minds, must learn to SEE what is NOT there in order to free itself from what it dreams can be done TO it. This is how it learns that everything done TO it is done BY itself.

M: Then why even bother posting this stuff on the internet, if my mind is the only mind?

J: To teach your “self” that the thoughts “you” think are no more “real” than the body you believe contains you, the world that you inhabit or the “people” that make up that “world.”

Thoughts that seek to represent and describe a dream world are as much a part of that dream as the images that seem to move around in it. The dream is no less whole than the TRUTH that you will awake to. The only difference is that the dream is NOT TRUE, but ONLY a dream.

I ask that you see the dream in its wholeness, so you are no longer victimized by disparate parts that can only oppose one another. Until you do, your thoughts about others are no more real than the images you see and claim as representing other minds. You are not “here,” nor are your thoughts, images, beliefs; nothing is “here,” because it is ONLY a dream.

A belief in “your” mind, as separate from the wholeness of truth, is as delusional as the belief in “other” separate minds thinking separate thoughts. Believing that your mind is “the only mind” is no less delusional than believing in other minds. There are no other minds, nor is there a mind that belongs exclusively to you.

M: Whatever happened to “I think, therefore I am”?

J: You have yet to THINK and, until you do, the thoughts you now worship will continue to demonstrate to you that you are delusional. You are dreaming and your thoughts are part of that. In fact, they are ALL of it. There is nothing else.

M: Well then, this discussion is a dream also. If my mind is delusional then so are you.

J: I am just your attempt at remembering amidst a soon to be forgotten dream. when you awake, I will be gone, because you will see that WE are one. When you awake, none of this will matter. None of it will have even “existed,” since there will not be a “time” when it could have been real.

The dream is exhausting you. You are very tired of dreaming that you ARE what you could NEVER be. Waste not a moment more of your precious mind on dreaming. Wake up and SEE the real world that God created in your name.

You are still there and God is waiting.

Only A Dream (pt.1)

M: I worry that learning all this will paralyze me into complete inactivity.

J: You are learning that what you “do” has NO value. The “self” that demands value fights vigorously against this as a viable choice, because if its world has NO value, then neither does IT.

A dream can be whatever you want it to be, but NO part of it is valued, because you recognize it as ONLY a dream. To be “paralyzed” in a dream means you have failed to recognize it as ONLY a dream and, as a result, the dream controls you.

I simply teach that although you choose to be controlled by a dream, it is still ONLY a dream and you can choose to SEE it differently.

As I have said before, you can do anything you choose. However, every choice asserts VALUE and what you value you will idolize as “real” and forget that it is all ONLY a dream.

In a dream, there is no right or wrong choice, simply because ALL of it is ONLY a dream. No choice is more or less important than another, because every choice is made IN a dream.

The only real choice to be made is to awaken.

M: Well, this world may be nothing more than a dream but, in my dream, I have to make choices.

J: Make every choice in a dream, prove to you it is ONLY a dream.

M: I can’t just make valueless choices. In my "dream," I have to work to pay bills. My body has needs and must be fed and kept healthy. I have responsibilities and certain duties that I just can’t ignore.

J: You have idolized these choices as “real” and, hence, the dream controls you.

M: If I knew I were dreaming, much of it I wouldn’t do at all. I would simply change the dream.

J: Then why do you not do so?

M: Obviously, because I don’t believe it’s a dream. The world is real!

J: Indeed, choices become valued as necessary in a world interpreted as “real.” Your only option is to alter that interpretation. You have tried to make perception fit your plans.

You have given great value to specific parts of what you perceive, while attempting to devalue other parts. You have tried to deny and ignore. You have applied progressively greater control to what you perceive, often through anger and attack. You have cried tears of despair and begged the world to give you what you need. You have used chemicals to numb yourself to what you perceive and have sought to overhaul your constant suffering through idolizing pleasurable experiences.

Nevertheless, nothing has yet mitigated your suffering. None of these measures have worked and, if they have provided any relief at all, only a brief time elapses until your misery rises again to consume your mind. What more can you do? What other “choices” are left to you?

ALL of the options you have so far chosen demand your world be “real.” You have done many things to end your suffering in the dream, except realize it IS a dream and this is the only option left to you. I recommend you choose the only option that is guaranteed to work without fail.

M: So I should just tell myself every day that it is all “only a dream”? How will that help me to change the dream?

J: When you know it is ONLY a dream, the dream no longer controls you. Yet, you must recognize it ALL as ONLY a dream. No part of what is ONLY a dream can be of more or less importance than any other part. Otherwise, you will idolize specific parts as valuable and what is assessed as valuable becomes more “real” for you. This is the dream you now believe, and suffer accordingly, as “real.”

M: So I should not feel happy about some parts or sad about others? You want me to live a flat and emotionless existence.

J: On the contrary, I ask that you engage ALL of it with great joy and in deep abiding peace. I ask that you recognize that you do not “exist” IN a world. The world exists IN you.

M: So I should be joyful about war?

J: I simply recommend the means of escaping enslavement to what you believe “real.” You made war “real” because, in your dream, some parts are to be feared and hated. In your dream, some parts must be destroyed, else you believe they will destroy you. In your dream, you CAN be destroyed.

Accept it all as ONLY a dream and realize your infinite invulnerability.

To fully understand and SEE this is to experience a JOY that is beyond anything you have experienced or could even imagine experiencing. It is a freedom that offers infinite peace and a love that will encompass every part of your mind. For in this VISION is the realization that ALL suffering has never been “real” and, in understanding this, you can NEVER suffer again.

Yet, there is still another world for you to see. However, no “eyes” will show it to you because IT IS REAL. Words from the dream cannot describe its utter beauty and, hence, I cannot tell you what you will experience because there are no “dream words” that fit such a description.

Although, your dreaming does not suffice to keep you much longer from this experience. Because you REMEMBER, and have NOT forgotten, you have asked me to teach you again what you have always KNOWN.

It is only a breath away from you and waits patiently for you to accept its VISION.

But first, you must accept it is ONLY a dream and that is all that is needed to AWAKEN.

Bless What You Made Real

M: Sometimes I get very tired of all this.

J: What I teach denies your egocentricity as TRUE and the self-concept you have come to rely on for EVERYTHING will strenuously resist that which denies its reality. This resistance completely exhausts you. Nevertheless, it will continue to fight against TRUTH until you are no longer AWARE of its resistance.

Then, you will NO longer rely on it for ANYTHING and you will be free of EVERYTHING.

M: It’s like now I find myself fucking up more than ever. I don’t believe I’m making any progress.

J: You still expect "progress" to demonstrate a reduction in some egocentric behaviors with an increase in others. Yet, this expectation is still contingent on a delusional self-concept that is totally ego-centered and looking for something that IT cannot find no matter how hard it tries. Hence, you have no means for which to measure progress. Allow me to measure it for you.

M: Well, have I made any progress yet?

J: In relation to your “world” none whatsoever.

In relation to God, your work is DONE.

M: But shouldn’t I see some results of being done?

J: The self-concept you invented demands “results.” Yet, because it is completely delusional, it will not SEE that your work is done and nothing more is needed.

It MUST always perceive a lack of progress no matter how much progress is actually made. No matter how far along you might be, every journey that begins IN your world must end IN death, because this is the ONLY progress your “world” offers.

Knowing this, does it make any sense in seeking truth IN your world? 

Your “world” has NO awareness of TRUTH simply because it was made specifically to deny God and every specific detail you see is proof of that denial.

M: But I thought you said that I will see change in the world as I change?

J: Accept that you have made progress and SEE it!

Give to your world the TRUTH that the work is DONE. There is nothing more for you to do, because there was never anything that needed to be done. Your journey was accomplished, long before it began and your world can show you that, if you did NOT refuse to SEE.

M: But you’ve said that I have made no progress in the world.

J: In relation to the purposes you have given the world, what progress would you expect to see in relation to TRUTH? Do you expect the world to demonstrate that it has NO meaning or purpose? Yet, this is what you MUST see, for only it is TRUE.

Demonstrate to your world that this is TRUE and finally SEE its purpose.

M: I need a sign. Something to show me that I’m moving in the right direction.

J: Then arrange for the world to provide for that “sign.” Change its purpose and allow for what you wish to SEE. Bless, rather than FEAR, your world and it will easily and joyously bend itself to fulfill that purpose. In fact, it does nothing less than begs for this purpose to be given it.

Until then, it will continue to meet the purposes you intend to expect, because you have arranged it so.

M: I don’t have that kind of power. This is crazy!

J: And your powerlessness is demonstrated as expected and everywhere you look you find proof.

In your world, communicating with TRUTH must be “crazy,” because not one ounce of TRUTH is “there” to be found and this is why progress is ALWAYS expected, but NEVER seen. In fact, you believe your world seems to demonstrate a “regression.” Therefore, this is what you SEE as expected. You have commented on this to yourself many times. Why should you not see what you believe "true"?

M: But it’s not what I want to be true.

J: You receive as you ask. Therefore, if you SEE it, it must be WANTED. But you must ask yourself, why would you want it?

M: The world is going to hell in a hand basket. I have nothing to do with that. I’m not a world leader, just one person. What power do I have??

J: Only the power granted you by God, which is more than your world can withstand without changing completely and at once. It is yours NOW and NO progress need be made to achieve or attain what was granted YOU through your Creation.

You were not "born" IN a world, the world was born IN you.

M: So all I need do is “bless” the world. What exactly does that mean?

J: Free it from every purpose you ever demanded from it and then held against it when it failed to meet your expectations.

The world has NOT failed you, only the purposes you gave it, and continue to demand, fail you. They are not its purpose, nor are they yours. The purpose of the world is to be FREE of it. This is its one and only purpose.

M: Yeah, when I die.

J: Death is a purpose you gave the world that enslaves you to it. All other purposes you invent are contingent on this one FALSE premise. Every action performed, ever behavior you carry out, every goal or objective, is directly associated with your belief in a finite existence. Your world would be very different IF there were NO death because, in your world, your ONLY purpose IS to die.

This is why you hate what you have made, refuse to bless it and, hence, see it destroying itself before your very eyes. The tears of the world are yours.

The world suffers from what you have made of it and nothing more than that. FREEDOM from what you have made is contingent on blessing what you have made…

…and nothing less than that can ever wipe the tears of the world from your eyes.

The Planned Obsolescence Of Your World

M: So if I’m sick, I shouldn’t go to a doctor?

J: The meaning you have applied to the body prior to sickness, subsequently determined sickness as a viable choice for the body.

The cascade of choices that now burdens you, evolved from the choice to make the body define what you ARE. Therefore, because of that fundamental choice, hence, you now have NO choice, but to be victimized by the body.

M: I don’t see any way that choice can be changed.

J: When you no longer SEE other bodies, you will learn to look beyond your own.

M: How can I interact with others if I do not see their body?

J: You have NOT “interacted” at all if a body is what you SEE. You have given meaning to images in your mind and that is what you interact with based on your specifications. Your superficial association to these concepts, has done nothing to save you from a hell of your own making.

However, you have encountered the spark of clear vision before. Yet, it was incomprehensible to a mind that demands only bodies CAN communicate and so, obviously, it was missed completely by your mind.

Until you see this spark in “them,” you will not experience it in yourself. 

M: So Bodies should be meaningless to me? Including my own?

J: Little brother, your world only “exists” for you to see BEYOND it. It serves NO other purpose. Free “them” from the body and you free yourself. How can you claim “freedom,” while still seeing them in chains? Your mind holds them bound to what you would have them be FOR you.

You cannot experience heaven and still SEE hell.

M: How do I see this “spark” you talk about?

J: Look for nothing else.

M: But I don’t know what I’m looking for.

J: But you do SEE what you expect and this is what you always “look for.” Expect MORE and you will receive as you ask.

It is what you now look for, and SEE, that obstructs vision entirely. Surrender what “they” mean for you and vision will return. You are blinded by your own meanings. You fear the meaningless and immediately press your meanings into what you believe would be emptiness if you did NOT give it meaning.

God did not create a void and you need not fear chaos from what is devoid of ALL meaning. God filled the void with the meaning of TRUTH and that is YOUR meaning. Do not waste it, by associating with the meaningless.

The TRUTH is “there,” waiting to be revealed and all you need do is dissociate from what you believe “true.” This task is so simple that you will be utterly amazed at the freedom experienced when you FINALLY surrender what you think it ALL means.

The horizon is completely shrouded by your chaotic meanings. When you free yourself from these "beliefs," you will see beyond what you now imagine as “real.” It awaits upon a clear horizon, but you must first clear it of the meaningless in order to see the meaning that lies behind what you think is “true.”

Everything you SEE is meaningless and you MUST have faith that, once you let fall away all your shallow meanings and purposes, TRUTH will be made known to you. Infinite freedom is absolutely guaranteed by nature of your CREATION. This is what “Trust in God” really means. God gave you meaning and purpose. You replaced that with many purposes that are ALL meaningless.

You continue to trust in your own egocentric delusions, regardless of the fact that they let you down consistently. You were never meant to live this way. Deep down, beyond all your meanings, you KNOW this to be TRUE.

Your world is meaningless in every detail. Have faith in NONE of it, because your faith only hides the meaningless you superimpose upon the images of your mind. 

M: I thought you said that relationships were meaningful?

J: Not as “you” define them and you define them as demanding bodies, because this is what you believe you ARE. If you do not know your purpose, how could you possibly understand the purpose of your relationships? I would suggest that when you think you KNOW, immediately recognize you are WRONG and wait for my answer to guide you.

M: I suppose there is a fear of not being able to function in this world if I come to believe the world is meaningless.

J: Why would “functioning” not improve upon learning that you are NO longer victim to the meanings that you have chosen to victimize you? When you are controlled by the meaningless, you obviously lack purpose and that which lacks purpose must believe in chaos, thereby, consigning itself to oblivion.

Believe that you are now…nowhere. NOTHING can exist, while being nowhere. Yet, you can free your “self’ from where you believe you ARE, if “where” you are no longer means what you thought it meant.

Your only escape from hell is to see it not “there.”

M: Everyone else believes it’s true. Everyone else acts as if the world were real!

J: Indeed and these are the images you believe you SEE. However, this allows you the opportunity to finally recognize there is only ONE MIND and a “world” perceived differently by six billion minds could NOT possibly be TRUE. It stands to reason, if it is not TRUE, then it cannot be “real.” Give NO meaning to “their” bodies and free yourself from your own.

You give your “self” many opportunities to understand that what you have made meaningful is simply NOT TRUE. How can what is false be “real,” merely by your giving it meaning? It must continue to be false regardless of what it MEANS to you and when it is NO longer meaningful, you will SEE that clearly.

SEE this and end ALL victimization from a “world” that you have given ALL meaning. It victimizes you because you have given it that purpose and it never fails to let you down.

M: If I step into moving traffic, I will be killed by a car. There is no other way to spin this.

J: I suggest you closely examine the instrument you use to measure an “outside” world. If the instrument is invalid, then what it measures must be equally WRONG. You employ a “body” to measure your victimization, but fail to see how the body is as delusional as that which it defines as “real” and perceives as meaningful. If the body is NOT real, how can its measurements be accurate?

M: There is absolutely no way I could possibly live as if the body were not real.

J: There is NO denying that the body is very meaningful to you. However, you have made it meaningful in ways that it cannot help you. Use the body for the planned obsolescence you intended.

See it fade before your eyes, because you no longer interact meaningfully with bodies, but with ONE MIND. There are NO relative meanings because there is NO relative world. To engage a relative world, as if you know what it means, is simply to engage nothing at all.

Is it any wonder you feel so deeply and utterly alone? As equally as the body does NOT exist for “them,” it does NOT exist for “you.”

When I gave up the world, TRUTH came to me without a moment’s hesitation. However, I gave up the world by blessing it wholly and completely. This meant that I no longer had anything to fear FROM it and so, it simply disappeared to be replaced by REALITY.

You continue to FEAR annihilation…while I offer you eternity.

M: How do I interact with ONE MIND?

J: Never accept a thought for yourself, because NOT one thought you THINK is true. Carry out your “days” with this ALWAYS in mind and be amazed at where it takes you. Do not fear the meaningless, because it is only your fear that gives it meaning.

Open your “self” to God’s meaning and the meaningless will simply pass from existence and be NO MORE.

Its obsolescence is planned and YOU are part of that plan.
