Today’s Oracle reading ACIM Chapter 21 Section 4 – The Fear to Look Within – is the perfect analogy for the Prodigal Sons and the Ego.
Where the 2 brothers in the parable can represent the 2 parts of the Christ Mind (Son of God) where one part is singing the song of Heaven of Non-Duality and the other is projecting the Egoistic, Dualistic perspective of sin, guilt, fear, separation and death. The same story which is found between Genesis 1 and 2.
“And now the ego is afraid. Yet what it hears in terror, the other part hears as the sweetest music; the song it longed to hear since first the ego came into your mind. The ego’s weakness is its strength. The song of freedom, which sings the praises of another world, brings to it hope of peace. For it remembers Heaven, and now it sees that Heaven has come to earth at last, from which the ego’s rule has kept it out so long. Heaven has come because it found a home in your relationship on earth. And earth can hold no longer what has been given Heaven as its own.
Look gently on your brother, and remember the ego’s weakness is revealed in both your sight. What it would keep apart has met and joined, and looks upon the ego unafraid. Little child, innocent of sin, follow in gladness the way to certainty. Be not held back by fear’s insane insistence that sureness lies in doubt. This has no meaning. What matters it to you how loudly it is proclaimed? The senseless is not made meaningful by repetition and by clamor. The quiet way is open. Follow it happily, and question not what must be so.”
