Imagining TRUTH

M: It just seems impossible to do these things you ask me to do

J: For centuries, this has been your grievance, ignoring that I have asked that you do nothing. Yet, this you say you cannot DO. Therefore, what you DO fails to help you.

M: How the hell does one “do nothing”?

J: By deciding you know NOT what need be done. Nothing more than that is necessary.

Here, in this writing, you do allow me to think WITH you because, by doing nothing, you are able to listen. You MUST learn to decide this naturally, else you will continue to make decisions on your own, contrary to your CALL for my help. You have called to me for centuries. Yet, when I answer your call, you are offended by what I offer, so deeply fixated on your need to DO MORE.

I am NOT offended. I only wait until I no longer offend YOU.

M: Writing this is different. I can sit still and listen. Life does not always allow for that time.

J: Life “allows” for what you decide and time is the means YOU have chosen for making decisions. You have given it NO other purpose. If you could only decide that “life” is nothing but an imaginary construct, that you are free to change at WILL, you would understand how easy it is to LISTEN. Yet, the NOISE you call “life” is what you insist on imagining. If you choose that instead, your choice makes it undeniably REAL for you. In 2000 years your imagination has given you nothing you NEED and in 2000 more it will provide the same unless you decide differently. Therefore, what do you wait for? When will you make the one decision that will FREE you from all decisions made and yet to be made?

Recall that when our discussions first began, we talked daily. But you turned away from ME, because you felt it was only YOU. This demonstrates how little you trust your ‘self’ while, ironically, continuing to fully rely on your ‘self.’

Such hypocrisy is NOT lost on you, but you have no idea how to correct it and so you continue to rely on that which you do NOT trust to correct that which your lack of trust makes REAL. I only provide another option, but you must still DECIDE. 

M: But it’s hard to tell which voice is me and which is you.

J: You KNOW the difference between TRUTH and noise and you have always known. Truth is NOT of your making. The noise has always been yours, because it comes from a “world” of your imagining. Long before you ever imagined anything to take its place, TRUTH was all you KNEW. Nevertheless, what you now imagine is so powerful, and seemingly, beyond ALL doubt that noise appears to be the only TRUTH you CAN experience. You KNOW so much more.

Because you decided that what you imagine is REAL, you will NEVER deny what you SEE. Therefore, it is now time for you to imagine TRUTH, otherwise you will never decide to see IT.

M: But I thought you said truth was not of my making?

J: Yet, you can imagine IT IS. Otherwise, if it is NOT yours, you will be offended and NOT accept what is NOT OF YOU. In fact, this you must do or you will only allow yourself to be directed by the noise that gives no direction but to chaos. You will experience TRUTH when the noise no longer distracts you, because you NO longer imagine it TRUE.

TRUTH is of God and is a combined effect of ALL Creation. Seeking to judge between what might be true and what might NOT, seems to remove you from this effect, making you cause of something else. Such judgments only make delusion real and that becomes your REALITY instead.

M: So how do I “imagine” truth?

J: By imagining nothing else.

M: But if I don’t know what truth is, how would I know if I’m imagining it?

J: You will know it, because it is NOT of you, but has always been YOURS.

M: So pretend nothing I see really exists?

J: It has been your “pretending” that grants existence to the fragmented pictures of your imagination. Why would pretending the inverse be more difficult? You pretend that fear, death and suffering are REAL. I merely ask that you pretend otherwise.

M: So I should just pretend my body does not exist? This is ridiculously impossible.

J: It must be “ridiculously impossible” to a mind that imagines it only “exists” by virtue of a body. The body is the reference point for every thought you invest in. Therefore, not one thought is free of the body’s claim for the mind’s reason for existing. The "ego" is NOT who you are, but you believe it is and that decision makes all the difference between God's joy and your suffering.

Consider your abstract inventions such as “trust,” “compassion” and “freedom.” These concepts are incomprehensible, except within the context of a body that can incorporate such beliefs through “behaviors” and “actions,” thereby, making them completely contingent on pretending that your experience of a body is REAL. This is why your “sciences” inform you that only 10% of the “brain” is accessed and utilized. Yet, even in this accurate evaluation, the body’s “brain” is inaccurately identified as source.

Nevertheless, the power of a mind, dissociated from reliance on a body, is a power granted by God. You can pretend it is NOT real, but this does nothing to alter the fact of its TRUTH. 

You have yet to assert your God given free-will, because such a WILL is unavailable to the mind that is victim to a body of its own imagination. Yet, although you pretend it is real, you can pretend the opposite. I am free of all bodily considerations and this is why I am the only teacher who KNOWS and can teach what is NOT KNOWLEDGE. This is all I have ever taught.

M: So how do I pretend the body does not exist?

J: By dissolving all FEAR of losing it. You cannot lose that which is a product of “pretending,” simply because it never existed in the first place. Your FREEDOM lies exclusively in this alone.
