“You are gods”

Sawadee Khrap

Note what is stated in  Psalm 82  A psalm by Asaph.   Jesus makes mention of this passage – “You are gods”.    Jesus also said that He and the Father are ONE and we are ONE with them as we , like He, does the Will of the Father, ELOHIM.

Elohim takes his place in his own assembly. He pronounces judgment among the gods:How long are you going to judge unfairly?  How long are you going to side with wicked people?” Selah  Defend weak people and orphans.  Protect the rights of the oppressed and the poor. Rescue weak and needy people.  Help them escape the power of wicked people. Wicked people do not know or understand anything.  As they walk around in the dark, all the foundations of the earth shake. 

I said, “You are gods.   You are all sons of Elyon.  You will certainly die like humans and fall like any prince.” Arise, O Elohim!  Judge the earth, because all the nations belong to you.

JUDGE ONLY with the Holy Spirit of Elohim and NOT with the wicked one – Do not view the world through the darkened lens of the EGO, the idea of separation and specialness, But rejoice in the Light of Forgiveness –  Christ’s Vision – True Judgement.

Pain-Joy both show lack

Sawadee Khrap

Today at my tea time I was watching the people go by and meditating on what is “joy”.   

I realized that I had been usually judging “joy” from a “lack” perspective.  I was defining being joyful as obtaining something that I had lacked and now it was mine.  So both joy and pain demonstrated that I was lacking, incomplete or not whole.   And what is that except the ego’s entire premise – that  I am separated from “Life itself”, subject to death, alone and helpless.

BUT,  remembering that  “I am as God created me”, complete and therefore joy “itself”.    True joy was not a euphoric feeling that I had just gained something but rather that God’s Peace was always present within me.   That  “BEING”  “One” with God and Christ and all my brothers – I had everything ,  lacking nothing.  That this world of opposites was just a state of mind, a nightmare or dream.   That to see this world free was My Freedom too.  Or as Buddha also put it, release all attachments (judgements) ,  ultimately to “self” to eliminate suffering and obtain ONENESS or Enlightenment.

Good cup of tea.!!!

Son of man–Son of God

Sawadee Khrap

Great vid on this subject.   When Jesus said that “You” have the power to bind or loosen on earth and that will bind or lose in Heaven , or when He said that if you judge – what you judge will be upon yourself – consider this explanation: If we are to be like Him and One with Him and God then ::::

Where Sin Has Left

Sawadee Khrap

“Judge not lest ye be judged”.

“Forgiveness is this world’s equivalent of Heaven’s justice    It translates the world of sin into a simple world, where justice can be reflected from beyond the gate behind which total lack of limits lies.  Nothing in boundless love could need forgiveness.  And what is charity within the world gives way to simple justice past the gate that opens into Heaven.  No one forgives unless he has believed in sin, and still believes that he has much to be forgiven.  Forgiveness thus becomes the means by which he learns he has done nothing to forgive.  Forgiveness always rests upon the one who offers it, until he sees himself as needing it no more. And thus is he returned to his real function of creating, which his forgiveness offers him again.

Forgiveness turns the world of sin into a world of glory, wonderful to see.  Each flower shines in light, and every bird sings of the joy of Heaven.  There is no sadness and there is no parting here, for everything is totally forgiven.  And what has been forgiven must join, for nothing stands between to keep them separate and apart.  The sinless must perceive that they are one, for nothing stands between to push the other off. And in the space that sin left vacant do they join as one, in gladness recognizing what is part of them has not been kept apart and separate.”

“The Justice of God”

Sawadee Khrap

Today’s Oracle pick says it all:  ACIM – Introduction: Chapter 25 – here’s the first few paragraphs:

The Christ in you inhabits not a body. Yet He is in you.  And thus it must be that you are not within a body.  What is within you cannot be outside.  And it is certain that you cannot be apart from what is at the very center of your life.  What gives you life cannot be housed in death.  No more can you.  Christ is within a frame of Holiness whose only purpose is that He may be made manifest to those who know Him not, that He may call to them to come to Him and see Him where they thought their bodies were.  Then will their bodies melt away, that they may frame His Holiness in them.”

No one who carries Christ in him can fail to recognize Him everywhere.  Except in bodies.  And as long as he believes he is in a body, where he thinks he is He cannot be.  And so he carries Him unknowingly, and does not make Him manifest. And thus he does not recognize Him where He is.  The son of man is not the risen Christ. Yet does the Son of God abide exactly where he is, and walks with him within his holiness, as plain to see as is his specialness set forth within his body.

The body needs no healing.  But the mind that thinks it is a body is sick indeed! And it is here that Christ sets forth the remedy.  His purpose folds the body in His light, and fills it with the Holiness that shines from Him.  And nothing that the body says or does but makes Him manifest.  To those who know Him not it carries Him in gentleness and love, to heal their minds.  Such is the mission that your brother has for you.  And such it must be that your mission is for him.”

To understand this is to understand SALVATION itself.     I will leave the rest of the Chapter to your reading.

MERRY CHRISTMAS

Sawadee Khrap

Although the 25th was not the real birthdate of Jesus, it would have been sometime in the spring or early summer, yesterday served a great purpose for remembrance.  I used to demand that the story be accurate while overlooking the message.   Theology instead seeking a EXPEIENCE of LOVE.  My Oracle chosen Lesson #269 ACIM workbook sums it up:

My sight goes forth to look upon Christ’s face.

I ask Your blessing on my sight today. It is the means which You have chosen to become the way to show me my mistakes, and look beyond them. It is given me to find a new perception through the Guide You gave to me, and through His lessons to surpass perception and return to truth. I ask for the illusion which transcends all those I made. Today I choose to see a world forgiven, in which everyone shows me the face of Christ, and teaches me that what I look upon belongs to me; that nothing is, except Your holy Son.

Today our sight is blessed indeed. We share one vision, as we look upon the face of Him Whose Self is ours. We are one because of Him Who is the Son of God; of Him Who is our own Identity.

And the final five lessons of the Course

This holy instant would I give to You. Be You in charge. For I would follow You, Certain that Your direction gives me peace.

And if I need a word to help me, He will give it to me. If I need a thought, that will He also give. And if I need but stillness and a tranquil, open mind, these are the gifts I will receive of Him. He is in charge by my request. And He will hear and answer me, because He speaks for God my Father and His holy Son.

We stand together !

Sawadee Khrap

Today,  December 19th,  Lesson ACIM Workbook  #354

We stand together, Christ and I, in peace And certainty of purpose. And in Him Is His Creator, as He is in me.

My oneness with the Christ establishes me as Your Son, beyond the reach of time, and wholly free of every law but Yours. I have no self except the Christ in me. I have no purpose but His Own. And He is like His Father. Thus must I be one with You as well as Him. For who is Christ except Your Son as You created Him? And what am I except the Christ in me?

and we say  “AMEN”

The SECOND Coming

Sawadee Khrap

When will Christ return ????      Today’s lesson ACIM workbook # 353:

My eyes, my tongue, my hands, my feet today Have but one purpose; to be given Christ To use to bless the world with miracles.

Father, I give all that is mine today to Christ, to use in any way that best will serve the purpose that I share with Him. Nothing is mine alone, for He and I have joined in purpose. Thus has learning come almost to its appointed end. A while I work with Him to serve His purpose. Then I lose myself in my Identity, and recognize that Christ is but my Self.

And what did Jesus say in the Bible?

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’” (Matthew 7:21)

“As he sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the close of the age?  And Jesus answered them, “See that no one leads you astray. For many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and they will lead many astray….. (24:23)  Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There he is!’ do not believe it. For false christs and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect. See, I have told you beforehand. So, if they say to you, ‘Look, he is in the wilderness,’ do not go out. If they say, ‘Look, he is in the inner rooms,’ do not believe it. For as the lightning comes from the east and shines as far as the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man…… (24:37)   For as were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and they were unaware until the flood came and swept them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.”   (Matthew 24:3)

“But concerning that day or that hour, no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.”   (Mark 13:32)

“And there will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth distress of nations in perplexity because of the roaring of the sea and the waves, people fainting with fear and with foreboding of what is coming on the world. For the powers of the heavens will be shaken. And then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. Now when these things begin to take place, straighten up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”   (Luke 21:25)

“Because YOUR redemption is drawing near. !!!!    Look, Listen and DO NOT JUDGE – leave judgement to the HOLY SPIRIT.     See Christ everywhere – a REDEEMED WORLD.

Love the “message” NOT the messenger.

Sawadee Khrap

In my dream last night it was painfully clear that I had fallen in love with the messenger and NOT the MESSAGE.  The dream was about a business deal but now I realize it was really urging me see how it applied to my life. 

Looking back, in my history of searching for peace, I followed many messengers but did not take heed of what the essence of their messages proclaimed. Religious dogmas, Church leaders and other so called Spiritual teachers,  New Age Gurus and many other Visionaries of scientific thought.   I realize now are just part of the ILLUSION trying to explain the illusion or “Ego explaining Ego”.  And yet in many of their messages was the same advice to seek a “outside” voice for actual guidance.  Because only a vision from “without” can expose the illusion of guilt based on guilt and let it go as valueless.

Now I realize that the outside voice is that of spirit “God’s Holy Spirit” and recognize that every character or or symbol in the dream has an ego and will be tainted by it.    I cannot  find peace by trying to change a chaotic dream into peaceful dream – that’s illusion to another illusion.  “Peace” is letting go of the illusion – letting go of all my JUDGEMENTS of what I thought was my truth or reality.  Listening to that quiet voice that speaks for God’s ONENESS and NOT for a special or separate world.  It speaks of the Eternal,  NOT for the finite.  THE MESSAGE  not the messenger.

My lesson for today is #347  ACIM Workbook 

Anger must come from judgment. Judgment is The weapon I would use against myself, To keep the miracle away from me.

WHO forgives ?????

Sawadee Khrap

Only the “Dreamer of the dream” of separation or specialness can forgive for only they are the one who doubted or made a judgment to be separated from God or  ONENESS.   The characters IN the dream certainly cannot for they are the result of the initial judgement and are merely actors existing as per the dreamer’s wishes.   And who are the Characters – everyone and everything in the dream  – You and I and all other bodies.   ONLY THE CHRIST, THE ACTUAL DREAMER,  CAN FORGIVE.   as Jesus  says “He is the Alpha and Omega and He is in charge of the Atonement.” 

But also remember what He told his disciples, “Whatever you bind or loose on earth will also be bound or loosed in Heaven.”   This means YOU and I have the power to lock the dream as our reality.   The ANSWER to SALVATION  is to LOOK, LISTEN and DO NOT JUDGE – but do so WITH the Holy Spirit and LET HIM JUDGE for us.  This is the only way to have the dream change from one of hate to love, for the Holy Spirit sees only LOVE or a call for LOVE and therefore can only answer with LOVE.       ISN”’T   IT   SO!    

Even Buddha told us the path to Enlightenment was to release all attachments – and what is an attachment but merely a statement of what I have judged best for me. 

Christ’s VISION    Seek not to change the dream but rather seek to change our (the actor’s)perception of it.   “I am still as God Created me.”

Steady our feet, our Father

Sawadee Khrap

This morning,  this prayer from the “Course” was brought to mind.  I used it to start the workbook group last year.   My favorite !

Steady our feet, our Father; let our doubts be quiet and our holy minds be still, and speak to us. We have no words to give to You. We would but listen to Your Word and make it ours. Lead our practicing as does a father lead a little child along a way he does not understand. Yet does he follow, sure that he is safe because his father leads the way for him.


So do we bring our practicing to You. And if we stumble,   You will raise us up. If we forget the way, we count upon Your sure remembering. We wander off, but You will not forget to call us back. Quicken our footsteps now, that we may walk more certainly and quickly unto You. And we accept the Word You offer us to unify our practicing, as we review the thoughts that You have given us.”    (ACMI Workbook Review V, Intro pg 329)

When will “the I” awaken?

We are constantly asking, talking about, and  desiring enlightenment and/or awaking.  What does it mean and when will it happen?  Even Jesus’s disciples asked this question.

WHY SHOULD THIS MATTER ? – If I can obtain “The Peace of God”  in my mind NOW and ONLY desire to help others to obtain the same, then the end of the dream HAS COME.

Consider this letter written in the  Archdiocese of Baltimore – Catholic Review, “Spirit of God always ready to awaken us”  which ends by asking   “  But what if we woke up? What if we allowed the Spirit of God to wake us up to who we really are? What if 2 billion people began to think and act like Jesus? What if we all worked miracles of love all the time?”

Is this not the end of the EGOTISTIC dream?  As Jesus said in the Gospel of Matthew:

“But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.   But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.   For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,   And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man beMatthew 24:36.

The “ ORACLE” answered me this way: 

Chapter 15 – II. The End of Doubt

Always look for MIRACLES.

God Blesses,  Christ Blesses     WILL  I  ONLY BLESS  ????
