All you need to see is the true Self of everyone. Let every love song be a hymn to this one of us, and let each song spark the willingness to see us as we Are. A heart so open is able to receive whatever is needed in any moment, and you can put your faith here. All is taken care of. All are cared for. Your job is to see and remember.
Song: "All I Want for Christmas Is You," Mariah Carey
All power is encompassed in this instant. All true power is benign and wholly shared. All power is accessible to all in this moment. Ego thoughts would contradict these truths, and tension tells you that you listen to ego as it contradicts truth. When you listen to and believe thoughts from ego, you would rather see a fantasy of what isn’t instead of acknowledging what is.
By your election, by your choice, you view what you want to view. Drop every surface label and analysis, and go down to where you are the same as all. This is what you have been trying to escape. Any stress, any tension–it always seems to be about and caused by the surface drama. Actually, it’s your attempt to escape what is always underneath the surface drama. The only thing you ever fear is love, no matter what illusion seems to hover over it. Love is ever-present under all drama.
Song: "Otherside," Avi Kaplan
Ego finds danger in separate aspects of a world. Ego finds safety in the same. You are noticing that there is unrest in attempting to locate anything at all within separate aspects. At the same time, though, safety is shining through everything you see as separate. You only have to look up and notice.
Reflections of death seemingly outside of you point back to your certainty that death is real, and that it's a final triumph over God. That is the original point of this world--to prove that death is real, to enact a drama in which fear and pain and death are more powerful than what you Are, than what you extend from eternally. This world is an attempt to put a stop to eternity. And you made it. Because it is an imaginary world, you have done nothing real, and you have done nothing wrong.
Song: "The Final Countdown," Europe
(Along with the advice I was given, "Don't try to think about it or figure it out 😊")
People who argue with you are presenting you with the thoughts you believe. We know it seems as if you believe opposite thoughts, but really--what's the difference? All of the opposing thoughts are about an illusion, not a reality. Look a little deeper, though. Let's say that someone is adamantly insisting that the world is flat. They are insisting that the world is a shape and that it is real. This is what you believe. You can stop a moment with this. The only things you can argue about are illusions that you believe are real. When you step back, you can release out of this.
The journey back to yourself can feel like a progressive peeling back of all of the layers of defense that you see as useful. So with each step you take toward peace, you face a piece of yourself that believes that to turn toward peace is to turn toward destruction. The idea that to turn toward peace is destruction is very disturbing, but ego has a solution to that. Ego's solution is distraction.
Truth is always very helpful to you--not a relative truth about perception, but the essential Truth of all that is. Whenever you feel disquiet, you are denying Truth and attempting to assert a relative truth about perception. It's just a habit--a habit that comes from the belief that finding and holding onto a relative truth about anything is meaningful and helpful. Allow this belief to sit in the light, and you are relieved of the quest to find and cling to relative truths.
