Watching TV and listening to any news outlets itâ€™s very easy to start blaming others for this mess we are in. But then I am making the same mistake that got us here. Not taking personal responsibility and realizing that it CAN ONLY start by changing my habits.
Expecting Jesus, or whatever religious figure you look to, to save our sorry asses is not the way to go. By beginning self-examination and praying for guidance on how to change my perspective on the present situation is the only way to realize permanent change. It has to start with me BECAUSE I am the one seeing this condemned world, itâ€™s my condemnation that I see.
Father forgive us for our fucked up world, we know not what we do. I have been asking what to do in my prayers and found the following passage in the Course. I need to consider MY part in this:
â€œThe Holy Spirit in you forgives all things in you, AND your brother. HIS errors are forgiven WITH yours. Atonement is no more separate than love. It CANNOT be separate, because it COMES from Love. ANY attempt you make to correct a brother, means that you believe correction by YOU is possible, and this can ONLY be the arrogance of the ego. Correction is of God, Who does not know of arrogance. The Holy Spirit forgives everything, BECAUSE GOD CREATED EVERYTHING. Do not undertake HIS function, or you will forget YOURS.
Accept ONLY the function of healing in time, because that is what time is FOR. GOD gave you the function to create in eternity. You do not need to learn this. But you DO need to learn to WANT this, and for THIS all learning was made. This is the Holy Spiritâ€™s good use of an ability which you do not need, but which you HAVE made. Give it to Him; you do NOT know how to use it. He will teach you how to see YOURSELF without condemnation, by learning how to look on EVERYTHING without it. Condemnation will then not be real to you, and all YOUR errors WILL be forgiven. â€œ (ACIM UrText T9.B5)
Change my thoughts about the world and watch the world change. Forgive my condemnation or judgements of others in order to see a forgiven world. If I BIND the world or dream then it cannot change, I have to release my judgments and allow the dreamer to dream a happy dream.
God Bless, I Bless, Ciao
