“To believe in a God incapable of experiencing that which comprises the vast range of human experience is to misunderstand.” Choose Only Love bk.3, 2:I
I want to believe that this is accurate channeling, because it supports an idea that I have long written about in this blog: God is living through us. If we are a part of Him, which Jesus’ channeled writings say, then it seems to me very evident that He knows. Yes, he knows when we are going through a bad patch. He knows when we need a helping hand. He knows when we are getting downhearted and could use His wider view.
It is better not to misunderstand, though with our finite minds we frequently do. A Course in Miracles has words that seem to indicate that only the Holy Spirit knows about us, because we are caught in illusion, and God does not know illusion. But there is reality deep within us, and this reality, I believe, is “God-stuff.” So the fact that we spin illusions does not mean that He lacks the will or the power to know what we are experiencing. Here Choose Only Love seems to second this interpretation. God knows, regardless of how deep into illusion we have fallen.
If we suffer, we have a helping Hand. If we are in pain, He reaches back to us. And His experiencing of what we are going through does lighten the burden. I believe God also knows why these bad things happen to us. We don’t know this; at best we have guesses only. The mystery of suffering will remain a mystery as long as love is incomplete in us. Love heals always, and if we love enough, A Course of Love indicates that healing is a fait accompli.
When times get rough, remember that God is experiencing right along with us. His infinite mercy will ease the pain, give us back a good life. We may never know why the rough patch is necessary, but A Course in Miracles says that we don’t have to learn through pain, that learning through rewards is more lasting.
Ask to learn, or to discover, the best way today. Through rewards, not pain.
This can and will happen for all of us, when we stay attuned to our Creator.
