Littleness vs Magnitude

Sawadee Khrap

Here is one of my favorite sections from ACIM – Something to remember every day before planning my day. I AM A SON of GOD.

“There is a deep responsibility you owe yourself, and one which you must learn to remember ALL the time. The lesson will seem hard at first, but you will learn to love it, when you realize that  it is true, and constitutes a tribute to your power. You who have sought AND FOUND littleness, remember this: Every decision that you make stems from WHAT YOU THINK YOU ARE, and represents the value that you PUT upon yourself. Believe the little can content you, and, by LIMITING yourself, you will NOT be satisfied. For your function is NOT little, and it is only by finding your function, and fulfilling it that you can ESCAPE from littleness. There is no doubt about what your function IS, for the Holy Spirit KNOWS what it is. There is no doubt about its magnitude, for it reaches you through Him, FROM Magnitude. You do not have to strive for it, because you HAVE it. All your striving must be directed AGAINST LITTLENESS, for it DOES require vigilance to protect your magnitude in this world. To hold your magnitude in perfect awareness, in a world of littleness, is a  task the little cannot undertake. Yet it is asked of you, in tribute to your magnitude, and NOT your littleness. Nor is it asked of you alone.

The power of God will support every effort you make on behalf of the magnitude of His dear Son. Search for the little, and you DENY yourself His power. God is not willing that His Son be content with less than everything. For He is not content without His Son, and His Son cannot be content with less than His Father has given him. We asked you once before, “Would you be hostage to the ego or host to God?” Let this question be asked you by the Holy Spirit in you, EVERY time you make a decision. For every decision  you make DOES answer this, and invites sorrow or joy, accordingly.

When God GAVE Himself to you in your creation, He ESTABLISHED you as host to Him forever. He has NOT left you, and YOU have not left HIM. All your attempts to deny His magnitude, and make His Son hostage to the ego, CANNOT make little whom God has joined with Him. Every decision you make is made for Heaven or for hell, and will bring you AWARENESS of what you decided FOR. The Holy Spirit can hold your magnitude, clean of ALL littleness, clearly and in perfect safety in your minds, untouched by every little gift the world of littleness would offer you.

Decide for God through Him. For littleness, and the belief that you can be CONTENT with littleness, are the decisions YOU have made about yourself. The power and the glory that lie in you, from God, are for all who, like you, perceive themselves as little, and have deceived themselves into believing that littleness can be blown up, BY THEM, into a sense of magnitude that can content them. Neither GIVE littleness, nor ACCEPT it. All honor is due the host of God. Your littleness deceives you, but your magnitude is of Him Who dwells in you, and in Whom you dwell. Touch no one, then, with littleness, in the Name of Christ, eternal Host unto His Father.”  (T 15 D 3. )

Day to day living

Sawadee Khrap

What’s a practical way to incorporate, “Look, Listen, and do not judge”, into daily life.

For a broad picture and simplicity’s sake, lets imagine that the some of the Sons of God had a “Dream” that they were “Special” and therefore set apart and not on equal with the others (Oneness of God).   For example, think about the thought “Would anything other than God make me happy?”.  Thinking this would require projecting a world or illusion containing the opposites of God, Oneness to separation, Spirit to bodies, Life to death, Eternity to time, Love to attack, and so on. Similar to what we call schizophrenia, a “split mind” referring to the way that people are split off from reality; they cannot tell what is real and what is not real.
The right-mindfulness part of the Son’s split Mind realizes that separation is impossible, IS LIFE itself and always present, but is not dominating because being LOVE it cannot attack.  The wrong-mindfulness part  needs to project because it cannot create, being the opposite of God, and what it projects is an illusion dominated by characters (bodies).
The “Dreamer” is “Christ”, the Alpha and Omega, or more specifically what we can call the Mindfulness of the Christ Mind. The idea that separation can occur is called the “Ego”.  And the “Holy Spirit” is God’s answer that Oneness cannot be separated and “IS” Life, therefore separation is an illusion or dream. Additionally, in this dream, the Christ Mind gives the “characters of the dream” the power to bind or unbind the dream by their judgements. The “Original Sin”, missing the mark,  was the character’s choosing the Ego’s lie, to be as God, by making judgements.

Judgements are also “attachments”, something judged as needed or not needed, actually a two-edged sword which will cut in both directions.  Only the “middle path”, NOT Judging, will offer eternal peace with no attack.

Since God’s Reality IS only LOVE, separation or “LACK OF LOVE”, is only in the illusion and is valueless. Since the character cannot possibly know why anything is being projected , only the dreamer can, then any choice or judgement,  by the character,  would be inappropriate.   But if the character ALWAYS looked for LOVE or a lack of Love, then the ONLY response would be – “give only love” for every situation, or instance, no matter what the dreamer started   As Jesus said “And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.”  John 14:13   As the right-mindfulness part is is also available to the character then this response would be a teaching aid and not used as weapons of separation.

For instance, hearing a screaming child – my only response should be to see that child embraced, in my mind,  with love and complete inclusion.  I would be more complete and therefor more joyful by extending as God’s LOVE extends.. Not in judgment, as to why or how the kid is suffering, but how the child is one with God and Myself.  Look not to change the world but to change my mind about the world.

I would love to hear your comments on other examples you could use to apply this solution to daily problems – please comment


Right “Seeing”

Sawadee Khrap

Here is a great video from Ken Wapnick (Foundation for Inner Peace) on seeing through the Christ’s mind.  Lesson 124:

“Today we will not doubt His Love for us, nor question His protection and His care. No meaningless anxieties can come be­tween our faith and our awareness of His Presence. We are one with Him today in recognition and rememberance. We feel Him in our hearts. Our minds contain His Thoughts; our eyes behold His loveliness in all we look upon. Today we see only the loving and the lovable.

We see it in appearances of pain, and pain gives way to peace. We see it in the frantic, in the sad and the distressed, the lonely and afraid, who are restored to the tranquility and peace of mind in which they were created. And we see it in the dying and the dead as well, restoring them to life. All this we see because we saw it first within ourselves.”

Corona Virus threat?

Sawadee Khrap

How am I going to confront this crisis?    Just received the health report for Thailand from the US Embassy – 19 infections and spreading fast.

Jesus taught:  “Caesar’s is Caesar’s, God’s is God’s and what you bind on earth is bound in heaven.  Your JUDGEMENTs are WHAT you control and bind or relinquish to God or Caesar.  Caesar being the symbol standing for the world or “the dream of separation”.  

I am the “Character” (Frank) in the dream but the “Dreamer” (Christ-the Unity of the Son of God) has given me the power to bind the dream through my  judgements.   The “middle path” is to look, listen and do not judge.  LEAVE all judgements to Christ – just follow the narrow “Middle” path to the reality of God’s Creation – “SELF”.  

As Jesus said:

“ Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgement ye judge, ye shall be judged:and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.”

First I need to remember that the DREAMER is examining the thought, from each one’s   perspective, “Am I separated from God and not LOVE itself and therefore only through attack I can get LOVE back ?”  

How I, Frank (the Character in the dream),  reacts will determine the path the dream takes.  Will my judgement be one of seeing attack (a call for love) OR Love itself OR the middle path of  realizing that it is only an illusion and do not judge allowing the Dreamer to decide with  the Holy Spirit.    So this can ONLY mean that any response should be one of GIVING LOVE or that what I am seeing is an illusion needing no response at all.   Is this  mental masturbation / spiritual bullshit ?    I don’t think so !!     This is how I should live my life.   How does it work, at a practical level,  to guide me through life’s experiences or crisis?  

Consider also, Buddhism.  Buddha teaches that to relieve suffering one first has to give up all attachments and the final one is the attachment to “self”.    Enlightenment is the recognition of “SELF”, free from all attachments, conflicts and limitations.    What is an attachment BUT a JUDGMENT ?  Or more simply a need or desire to change reality by judging something or someone of value or not.   He also espoused to follow the “middle path”.

So how do I plan to apply it to the “Corona Virus” scare existing today ?

First off understanding that “Frank” IS A CHARACTER IN THE DREAM and I won’t deny that.    Secondary,  I won’t deny that I have accepted common criteria  about the world (judgements) as TRUE,  which I witnessed to by believing I am living here.  I won’t deny that this is a “dream threat”.    So considering all that, I will react specially to the Corona Crisis by:

  1. Realizing I have NO problem NOW.
  2. All reports are just hearsay so far, I am not directly affected NOW.
  3. I know of no one NEAR me that is infected.
  4. I actually have NO problem UNTIL I am infected.
  5. I will take all necessary precautions to prevent  getting infected – hand washing and masks.  I will not TEMPT God to save me from any of my un-beliefs.
  6. I acknowledge that others have judged an attack is occurring and I can offer LOVE by prayers that they realize their ONENESS with God and attack is impossible.
  7. Maintain my peace, as best I can,  through prayer and meditation. Judging not and offering only LOVE where I am presented a lesson where I have made an error or judgment in the past or have been asked to give LOVE.

“And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment: For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole. But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of
good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.”    (Matthew 9:20)

Thy FAITH has made thee whole !!!. 

What happens tomorrow will be tomorrow’s problem – Living one day at a time.  I will not let the past interfere or determine the future.  I rest in God NOW.  I will NOT live in WHATIF’s
