“You cannot take fear into Love. You cannot take judgment into forgiveness. You cannot take limitation into unlimitedness. These things must be released at the level in which they were first created.” (“The Way of the Heart,” WOM, Lesson 12, Page 146)
Jesus’ channeled writings (the principal of which are A Course in Miracles, A Course of Love, and The Way of Mastery) could not have been written in the manner given prior to Sigmund Freud. Freud developed the idea of a subconscious mind that the mind of conscious awareness knew not of. The fear, the judgment, and the limitation are lodged in this subconscious. In the quotation for today, Jesus says that these things “must be released at the level in which they were first created.” And this means the subconscious.
We didn’t set out to be fearful, to be judgmental, to be limited in our personalities. These things developed over time in a world that impinged upon us. We inherited much of this, but it is a dead-end street to blame our parents. They too were hoodwinked. People have simply not known any better because of the construct called the ego. This is the false persona that rose up when we decided that we wanted a make a world different from what God had created. We would try to do better than he. And in this ridiculous notion, we retreated into fear when we “separated” from Him. He let us go, knowing that with his gift of free will, He did not want to coerce us.
We cleanse the mind of fear, judgment, limitation by spending time communing with God in prayer, meditation, quiet times that nourish our soul. We learn again that we are not sufficient unto ourselves, that we need each other. We join others in relationships that promote the unity that we have to realize we need with God. We take a step back from the ego. We begin again.
We need to remove the blocks to the awareness of love. This may take time, but it does not, should not, be a struggle.
When we seek, we do find. And in the finding are all things made right again. One with God and with each other, we walk a flower-strewn path—even in this world.
