“The whole while, that very thought must use the power of the One. For that power is Life! That power is pure being! That power is the real world! That power is the only thing that exists—period! By the power of That One, you have dreamt the thought of the separate self. By the power of That One, when you decide to, you will awaken from the thought of egoic consciousness.” (“The Way of Transformation,” WOM, Chapter 16, Page 195)
“‘That One,’ in the work channeled by Jayem, The Way of Mastery, means the Essence of God that we share with the Godhead. So, in that sense, that we all partake of God, we do play a part in deciding when we awaken from egoic consciousness. The way in which this truth is given here, though, does seem counter to A Course in Miracles, which says that God makes the decision of when we Awaken. If we are part of God, though (something ACIM also says), then our own essence participates in this decision.
God is Life! This is another way of thinking of our Creator. A good way to wrap our minds and hearts around what we actually are. Since we are Life, and God is Life, we have more say in our doings than we think. God gives us this freedom to decide. There will come a time when we realize that we are beyond choice: We just LIVE! And then we are really cocooned in God’s love.
This quotation for today is a very freeing concept. If we put our minds and hearts to it, then we can remove the blocks to love more quickly, and thus hasten our union with God in Awakening.
