Is it true that all my thoughts have consequences? , YES !!!
But lets start at the beginning, the myth, as told in Genesis 1, says WE were â€˜ALLâ€™ Created in the Image and Likeness of God. A Non-Dualistic Spirit existence, â€˜ONEâ€™ with OUR CREATOR. If this is so, then â€˜ALLâ€™ that exists, EXISTS in the â€˜MINDâ€™ or SPIRIT of God, or in other words â€œREALITYâ€. Nothing would be SPECIAL or APART, anything NOT in accord with the Mind of God could NOT exist, it would therefore be an illusion, a dream or nightmare of imagined existence. A good archetype, for this ONENESS, could be the Borg in the StarTrek series. a collective hive. so to speak. The collective conscience would be the determiner of reality. It would be impossible to have NEUTRAL THOUGHTS.
But lets consider, a thought out of accord with the collectiveâ€™s thought, because the power of creation is ONLY with the CREATOR, any thoughts in opposition to the collective would be NON REAL or an Illusion, or LIE. This would also indicate a split mind, what we would call schizophrenia. In the â€œFALLâ€ presented in the Genesis creation myth, 1/3 of the angels rebelled from the collative mind of God, to institute the Divine Battle. Likewise in the story of the Prodigal Son , there were two brothers, one who left and the other stayed. And since such a split mind would have no creative power it could only re-interpret its existence in some form of the original, in a dream world. Any deviation from the â€˜collective mindâ€™, beyond accepted limits, would be considered abnormal or delusional and medicines or therapies would be prescribed to correct the problem.
Other examples could be feelings of deja vu or have you ever had an unexpected thought come into your awareness and say to yourself â€˜Where the hell did that come from?â€™, SPIRITUAL SCHIZOPHRENIA. We are actually our own â€˜accuserâ€™, then acting this out as different egoic characters, representing both jailor and prisoner.
Jesus confirmed as much as He said, and I paraphrase, â€œMy Kingdom is not of this world.â€ , â€œI and the Father are one, and so are you one with me.â€ , â€œIf you see me you see the Fatherâ€, â€œI am the Alpha and Omega.â€, â€œNo one comes to the Father except through [the Son] me.â€, â€œI did not come to condemn the world but to save it.â€ BUT, HE ALSO SAID â€œ You have heard, â€™do not commit adultery.â€™ But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery.â€ â€“ here looking surely implies thinking. And he also added â€œWhatever you bind or loose on earth (the dream world) will also be bound or loosen in heavenâ€. Your judgements, do indeed, determine your world or the perspective you accept as reality.
In this world, prayer and forgiveness are the therapies needed to correct the errors in judgement and re-unite the Sonship. Forgiveness merely states the un-real did not happen and lets it go back to the nothingness, hence it came. Correction, of these judgments, is called Salvation or the Atonement. Errors or thoughts of separation and attack are what religions are calling sin or â€˜missing the markâ€™.
Therefore itâ€™s important to remember, I am spirit, I am still as God created me. Look, Listen and Do Not Judge, Leave judgement to the Holy Spirit.
Todayâ€™s ACIM Lesson #97 reads in part:
“You are the spirit in whose mind abides the miracle in which all time stands still; the miracle in which a minute spent in using these ideas becomes a time that has no limit and that has no end. Give, then, these minutes willingly, and count on Him Who promised to lay timelessness beside them. He will offer all His strength to every little effort that you make. Give Him the minutes which He needs today, to help you understand with Him you are the spirit that abides in Him, and that calls through His Voice to every living thing; offers His sight to everyone who asks; replaces error with the simple truth.
The Holy Spirit will be glad to take five minutes of each hour from your hands, and carry them around this aching world where pain and misery appear to rule. He will not overlook one open mind that will accept the healing gifts they bring, and He will lay them everywhere He knows they will be welcome. And they will increase in healing power each time someone accepts them as his thoughts, and uses them to heal.”
Look out, through the Vision of Christ, to see a Redeemed â€œSinlessâ€ World, â€œFather forgive them they know not what they do.â€ Do NOT look for sin or attacks, for that is what you will concentrate on and overlook the Love of God.
