“Your vision of the afterlife was one in which God revealed Himself to you and, in that revelation, transformed you. The direct reve¬lations that will come to you now will transform you as surely as did those that came to so many others after death.” (ACOL, T4:5.12)
What a glorious promise this quotation really is! We will know in this lifetime, before our eventual death, the transformation that is promised. If we love enough, for Love is the key. Loving ourselves, God, and our brothers and sisters will make the transformation from fear and judgment to something much better. It will give us lives worth living, maybe for the first time. We will know peace in this lifetime. A blessing for which all of us would give our lives.
We are actually part of God; God is living a life through each of us. This is part of the theology of all of Jesus’s recent channeled works (A Course in Miracles, A Course of Love, The Way of Mastery). We are That which is, God Himself. Lest we think this is too exalted a concept, think of who is saying it here, Jesus himself. And I do trust Jesus.
What will we know when we are enlightenment, awakened, Christ-conscious? We will indeed be fearless, and because of fearlessness, we will think clearly for the first time. Our egos have tried to protect us from ourselves, but this was always a false notion. The ego can protect nothing, for it is the very definition of insanity. And we are trying, sometimes slowly, to emerge from insanity. If one has ever been insane, they will tell you that there are glimpses of non-psychotic thinking before the veil falls from their eyes, and they are “sane” again. This is exactly what will happen in this larger insanity of which all of us partake on this earth, when we have not yet been transformed. We will have glimpses of sanity, of Christ-consciousness, and then the veils will drop from our eyes, and we will be transformed by vision, a form of seeing that our physical eyes can’t fathom.
Pray for a general Awakening for humankind in this day and age. We all need each other now. We all need God now. Each other, our Christ-Self, and God—a prescription that cannot fail.
May I have a glimpse of true enlightenment today. May my fears become a distant memory, and soon. This difficult world need not be difficult at all, for the Christ-Self knows how to negotiate its difficult transitions.
I would negotiate transitions today, easily. I wish for the best. I pray that it is Your will to grant that best to me. And to others reading my words.
